McDonald's Sustainable Fish: All U.S. Locations To Serve MSC-Certified Seafood

“I question whether the average Mc Donalds customer even knows what the word susstainable means. God save our fish!”

“What is the average McDonalds customer? And I think you mean "sustainable."”

“Both my soon to be ex and I are chefs. It is a crazy business. I stayed home for the past 17 years in order for my husband to advance his career so that we could eventually open a restaurant together. He changed his mind and forgot to tell me. Soon after we first seperated he let me in on that. He is now opening the restaurant, I have been out of the professional rhealm for 18 years. Where does this leave me? Seems nowhere according to my current lawyer. My alimony is more than a get back on my feet fund. I made a scrifice for what I thought would be the good of our whole. That has got to count for something!”

“So your spouse forced you to sit home for SEVENTEEN YEARS? Oh please. You did that because YOU wanted to do it. YOU made that decision.

If my partner even suggested such a thing to me he'd have had an answer is less than a second - forget it.

So - he supported you for 17 years - now you want the gravy train to continue. Of course you do. If you were to get alimony for the next 20 years, I'd venture to guess, you'd still be making the same argument wanting it to continue until he dies.

Go and get a JOB.”

“The colorful can is meant to look like a can of soda. Not ignorant my friend, well informed. The alcohol content is the paydirt. Kids walk around with these cans and the uninformed adults are blissfully unaware of the contents.”

“I would not go back to 15 if you paid me. I am 2 years away from 50. I have a 17 year old boy and 2 girls, ages 15 and 9.
I have a hard time finding ways to talk with my teens about the changes that are happening to them. You have shed some new light in my parental arena. Thank you! With a bit of luck and some good word choices I will use this new found wisdom and open up some new dialogue between us!”

Finding Their Passion... Really?

Commented Oct 4, 2011 at 10:16:07 in Parents

“Passion is rarely a permanent state, at times it lasts only moments or days. If we allow for those moments, we discover who we are. We are complex and multifaceted beings, each different from the next. One size fits all; one passion fits a lifetime rarely if ever works out. It is not what you do, but who you are that defines. Take each day as it comes, savor moments of passion, identity is revealed there.”

Commented Oct 4, 2011 at 09:50:13 in Divorce

“People, everyday humans who get married are not God, they change, sometimes in different directions, opposite directions. Difficultiies arise, marriages become irretrievable. God does not want a world filled with bitter and miserable people who are stuck in bad marriages, mired in the belief that they are joined together for life no matter what happens. Give me a break. Come out form under your rock. Please?”

“Don't you think the problem is stores selling 4loko to underaged kids and not the drink being in a colorful can? "Kid's" buy vodka and gin as well. I personally buy 4loko because with my current paycheck i cannot justify spending $50 at a bar every friday and saturday night. spending $6 for a weekend of drinking > spending $100 in my book. Nothing is wrong with the drink itself its just that people dont know their limit and will drink multiple cans because it doesnt have the wretched taste of something like gin.”

“Yeah, because Four Loko is sold to everyone and is shelved right next to the gatorade, and the kids are in it for the colorful cans, not the alcohol content. Bliss indeed.”

“Market to kids? You have to be 21 to buy it. Blame your kid for paying an older kid to buy it or blame the older kid for providing it, but don't blame the drink.”

“This is so beautifully written. Your love for both of your children seeps into my heart. I am reading your book and it has helped me discover some real insight into my own children and how I relate to each of them as separate and unique human beings with 3 very distinct personalities! Thank you for the inspiration. Check out my blog at www.diaryofadogbiscuit.blogspot.com. I write about my life and my kids.
I love your "voice"!

A Divorced Couple's Perspective on Raising a Child, Part I

Commented Jun 2, 2011 at 06:52:43 in Divorce

“Details are not necessary. All you really have to do is imagine. Whatever can go wrong did and continues to do so. I will continue to plug away at this with the least amount of damage to our kids.”

715W on Jun 2, 2011 at 08:11:23

“I didn't mean to pry into details.

I am in a divorce now also. And so I can imagine.

I'm on a quest to learn and grow from the (bad) experience so that I can be a better person and parent. And maybe later help others in this experience.

What amazes me is that there apparently is no organized body of knowledge that pulls together what certainly must be common elements/behaviors of the pathological "bad divorce". I would guess that there are almost formulaic templates for "bad divorce" cases.

In the type A "bad divorce" case, this happens ...
In the type B, this happens ...

The people in divorces are stereotyped. That stereotyping strikes me as far less productive than "typing" the cases/behaviors. Because the practical solution for a bad divorce is in behavior modification rather than hoping somehow that the people will change.”

“If my memory seves me correctly, I and my fellow children of god were given a penance of ten hail maries just for using god's name in vain. Adultery is a mortal sin, far more grave an offense. I imagine Newt must be required to say 500 a day into eternity. Actually that is probably not accurate either. Didn't the article mention he got an annulment? If you pay enough you are not required to do penance. No hail maries for Newtie Boy. He is rich enough to get out of his prayer obligation. After-all that is the conservative way.”
