“A slowcooker and beans are the foundation if my diet. I always make a double batch and freeze the extra, its been a money and time saver.”

“I was widowed more than 30 years ago and have lived alone ever since - but, I never learned to cook for one. Now, as a retiree - with time to prepare dishes that actually take time - I always cook for a family, separate servings (of each item) into single cup containers and pop them into the freezer. I love home made soups and stews.
About twice a week I go 'shopping' in my freezer (I feel like I'm reading a Chinese menu) and take - 1 from stack A, 1 from stack 2 and another from stack 3.
I'm lucky to live in the country, grow some of my own and have farm stands available to me - so I do eat healthy. I eat very little meat (I've always preferred fish) and - at 80 - my neighbors call me a 'cross between a workhorse and a mountain goat.
I really worry about those folks who - because they have two of more jobs to work around - don't have the time to prepare full meals from scratch - and actually spend more (in money) than they save (in time) by buying already prepared foods for their families - not considering all the preservatives they are ingesting.”
“I have been living in a desert climate for the last three years. I've picked up the use of rosewater with glycerin here. It helps with the really low humidity. I spay it on my face right before I moisturize. I has helped me.”

“Another reply, sorry. Where do you get the stuff that you spray on? Sounds like my grandma's formula, ready-made. Aubrey, maybe?”

“My grandmother (who had beautiful skin even in her 80s) swore by glycerin and rosewater. She would have her druggist mix it for her. The stuff you buy today that's more like a cream or lotion isn't really the same at all. I suppose you could still get a compounding pharmacy to do what Grandma's druggist did. You have to shake it before you use it, but it's just heavenly. Okay, now I've talked myself into seeing if I can revive this old family thing. :)”
“Not true. I was an inner city teacher in NYC at middle school level and have a Masters degree in Education. Just look up, Teaching in Multiculturally Heterogeneous Classrooms and you'll see the challenges.”
“1) You can not compare heterogeneous countries with homogenous countries.
2) In the US all kids are required to attend schools. Not so in other places.
3) In general the structure of numbers in Asian Languages makes math easier than in English.
4) This is a result of a Global World the poor and middle class of developing nations are benefited the most from the new model of economic development.”

“I refuse to believe that one race has less ability to learn than another or that mixing children up in a school makes any difference. I don't see what you mean with your hetero/homogenous argument.”

“Not so. Denmark, a socialist country by the way, has a very diverse population. One reason for the difference is parents expect their children to work hard in school and a willing to take some of their "me" time to help their kids with their homework.”

“In general the structure of numbers in Asian Languages makes math easier than in English.
So you are saying if our children learn Chinese math will be easier?”

“"3) In general the structure of numbers in Asian Languages makes math easier than in English."
Sorry but math is universal. If we ever encounter beings from other worlds it will probably be math that is used to communicate.”

“My sources are established college level sciences. It is not an opinion, which is why it peeves me when medical doctors promote vegan diets as healthy. But, the bottom line...cruel practices of farming food animals needs serious attention at the farm level. A sick and abused animal is not going to produce healthy food. This is something we can both agree. Happy Holidays.”
“(1) "Most of the initial data regarding vitamin B12 deficiency in infancy are from case studies of infants exclusively breastfed by mothers on vegan, vegetarian, or lacto-ovo vegetarian diets."
Straight from the first resource.
(2) That does not change the fact vegan diets are not healthy.
(3) Folic acid is another nutrient supplement, though part of the vitamin B complex. There are few, but that few are extremely important to fetal development and brain and nerve health.
(4) Of course. We are omnivores and need both meat and plants in our diet. What plants do is scrape the walls of the intestines clean with strands of fiber. Too much, however, will bind digestion.
(5) A healthy vegan diet does not exist even for those who overindulge on meat. Long-term vegetarian diets are preferable in those cases. Vegetarian diets include some animal protein and can provide all essential nutrients. Vegan diets do not.
(6) The same thing can be said about people who eat meat.
In adults, the damage of vegan diets is accumulative and may take several years before any notable damage sets in. It is in the human fetus and children, that vegan diets are harmful. When something can malign or destroy a human fetus then you know it is not safe for humans. It is appalling for any medical doctor promoting the vegan diet as healthy for the fact they should know better.”
“If you know anything about photography you would have known she has been dead since 1981.”

Quote (from the article) :
"The images, following in the footsteps of female artists like Louise Bourgeois and Francesca Woodman"
I did not look through the slide show of (genuine) photographs. ( Actually, DIGITAL images of photographs) Once again, shooting self-portraits/models/interior ruins and manipulating angles/nudes with slow shutter speeds (or negative sandwiching) are not...repeat...are NOT "original" ideas.
And a fine art photographer, regardless how "good" or "sloppy" he/she is in his/her "art",
is not "following in the footsteps of...artists" by using "Photoshop" to essentially COPY the ideas of 20th century master photographers, which clearly Colbert is doing.
My mistake is I did not name the artist, whereas "LaBella" did. Will straighten that out with her/him, whatever.
"If you know anything about photography..."
Since you haven't a clue who I am, you know nothing of my skills as a photographer.”
She could've have done a lot without the aid of cyber-faking...These are old ideas, nothing original here. It is certainly not classical straight-shooting....And Jerry Uelsmann need not fear imminent rivalry by these cyber constructs.”
