“When I first bought CW, I noticed the same thing when reading the labels. I wanted, specifically, no sugar. I found one, and it was really good. I forgot the brand name, but it's in a can and I got it at my local Safeway. It was really good, and had just a hint of sweetness to it.”

“That's what I'm looking for too. Still looking. I guess Northeastern Illinois has a major sweet-tooth.”
“Hahaha...This just made me laugh. Neither of us had ever had coconut water before, but a few months ago after suffering through particularly nasty bouts of gastroenteritis (noro-virus), a friend who owns a local health food store said we should have some coconut water on hand for just such occasions, as it was really good in place of the former stand-by for such bouts of dehydration, gatorade. I bought a couple of cans and set them in the pantry. A couple of weekends ago, we went full-commando raid on our large yard when it was waaay too hot out, and we both felt awful. I grabbed those cans, poured them over ice and handed one to the spouse. "What's this?"..."Coconut water." "What's it taste like?" "I dunno. You'll find out same as I." We both liked it; it was light, refreshing, lightly sweet, tasted like coconut (not sweat socks or motor oil at all!) - unfortunately, I don't remember what brand it was, but I bought it at Safeway. This article reminds me I need to replenish! BTW, we both felt it actually did "nourish" us, giving back something that too much hard work and heat took away. There may be a prejudice here for us; we both love coconut, not everyone does.”
“This is really good news. I was really concerned about my grandfather, who suffered so with bunions, that I didn't know him that well. I never ever saw him in heels...although, I bet he could have pulled off that look.”
“Everyone should go back and watch Anderson Cooper's interview with Charles Ramsey. Only this time, make a point to enumerate the values expressed and possessed by this man, who clearly has been through much in his own life, and has managed, to this point, to turn out pretty damned good. Considering Mr. Ramsey's off-the-cuff nature, the values portrayed in this interview could hardly have been scripted or prepared. Unfortunately, people aren't even reading those things from this interview.
Go'head...go watch it again. And again if need be. But pay different attention this time.”
“This reminds me of that scene in Men in Black (the first one), where the tv screens keep playing communique's of famous people...like Michael Jackson....Rodman may even have been one of them. This world is gaddamn nuts!”

“It was Rodman on MIB 1. The writer of that movie called it right!”
“This whole story just blows my mind.
I understand that it was inappropriate, however, I can hardly imagine that anyone should be surprised that organizations who openly touted they wanted less government, to pay zero taxes, etc., that when they file 501c4 paperwork, they're surprised? Really?
It's not like anyone uses our system against us or anything................”

“This whole thing has just pissed me off. The last straw this morning was our local radio team discussing it, and one of them said, "Why not acknowledge Easter...on Easter?" I called them up while on the freeway (they don't take calls on the air, but I know the producer...and all of them actually), and asked "WHY NOT ACKNOWLEDGE A BRAVE CIVIL RIGHTS LEADER ON CESAR CHAVEZ DAY? I mean, what would Jesus do, not acknowledge it?"
I have to say I was impressed, a few minutes later, they talked about it again on air, and said, "Well, I guess it might be a good idea to acknowledge a civil rights leader as well...because Jesus might well have."
Score. I was happy, but I can't say the same for Facebook posters. Ugh”
“This makes me laugh. I had a boss once (well, I was contracted to come in and save his failing store, I wasn't really his employee, per se), who felt that all the WOMEN employed there used too much toilet paper. He directed me to instruct these women that they are only allowed to use TWO SHEETS of TP per toilet visit. Furthermore, to make certain that this was policed, they were to "check out" those two pieces of TP from ME, before they hit the restroom. Besides every other WTF in this story, like I had time to do THAT.
Just to eliminate the argument, I personally purchased TP for staff use, and encouraged them to use it freely, as though there was no tomorrow!
Funny, but this was from the same man who made the oddest offhanded remark I've ever heard over a lunch conversation "I make Margie (his wife) take a shower before I will sleep with her."
Perhaps if he'd allow the use of TP by his obviously long-suffering wife, that wouldn't have been necessary...but you never know, do you?”
It's about all the dead people, shot to death by the guns you promote, littering our landscape.
Amazing. Please pay attention folks. If you look (not even carefully), you'll find this a common characteristic among those who seek to put us under. From Rush to Sean; from Mitt to Michelle; from Newt to Paul...so many more, too numerous to list here.”
