Shinae Choi Robinson836,545HOW COOKALONGS WORK:http://ridiculoushungry.blogspot.com/p/cookalongs.htmlHey, Cookalong Peeps!Since we voted overwhelmingly for African cuisine for this Cookalong, African it is!As you can imagine, with Africa being vast as it is, we are really just getting our feet wet with this month’s recipes, but I’ve tried to come up with two separate balanced menus, and choose solid recipes that appeal to a wide range of palates, for you to cook from. Both meals are totally adaptable to make with or without meat.I think you’ll find the ingredients fairly accessible and inexpensive for the most part, but if you have any questions as to substitutions, I am happy to call upon the collective wisdom of our foodnik community to help you find a solution.As always, if you'd like to share an African dish in the event that's not on the menu, please include a description of the dish in the comments under your photo. If you can provide a recipe, even better. :)So with no further ado:SUGGESTED MENU 1- AFRICAN GROUNDNUT (PEANUT STEW (maafe/maffé) - I’ll link to both a chicken and a vegetarian recipe. If you prefer seafood, that’s an easy substitution, but you would add the protein MUCH later in the cooking process.Recipes:https://plus.google.com/u/0/105466596306740968847/posts/8hHzsrrbwbM- PLAIN STEAMED LONG GRAIN OR JOLLOF RICE WITHOUT ADDITIONAL PROTEIN (West African rice pilaf)Jollof Recipe: http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2013/03/28/recipe-for-jollof-rice-t_n_2972442.html- YE'ABESHA GOMEN (Ethiopian Collard Greens)Recipe: http://www.saveur.com/article/Recipes/Yeabesha-Gomen-Ethiopian-Collard-Greens- BANANA FRITTERS (which I think will go beautifully with a little vanilla bean ice cream and a drizzle of honey)Recipe: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Banana-Fritters-104781SUGGESTED MENU 2- CHICKEN OR VEGETABLE TAGINE (if you don’t have a tagine, that’s fine - you can just use a Dutch oven or stockpot).Recipes: https://plus.google.com/u/0/105466596306740968847/posts/DtwL9aNRqrU- BASIC COUSCOUS (You might like to add toasted nuts such as African Food Cookalong2013-04-21 09:00:0047G+

Danial Hallock6,197The Three Hundred"Completed" CopyAs most of you probably know by now, I have been working on a #circlemanagement  project for quite some time now, in which I sought to increase the vetting process that occurs when I add people to my circles.  As most of you also know, I've been absolutely swamped and have barely had time to share content (let alone post my own or curate circles), so it's taken me a while to get here.However, after only six months to the day (lucky coincidence) I've managed to finish what I would consider a mostly-complete copy of this circle.  You can see the vetting process and the history of it here (http://goo.gl/kqE8h), and as always I encourage you to add and share this circle as you see fit!If you're notified, you're in it!  If you do not wish to be included in any future circle shares, please let me know via private message. #circleshare   #sharingiscaring   #engagers  2013-04-20 13:17:463019914101CC G+

Shells Bells5,180Best of 2012 CircleThis circle is some of the G+ awesomeness that has enriched my life this year - and I am grateful.  A while back +Sean Cowen asked what G+ has meant to us.  After watching Brene Brown's TEDTalks (http://www.ted.com/speakers/brene_brown.html) I realize that for me, G+ has been a lesson in vulnerability and courage. I have been humbled by the courage of every one of you.  I love that women post no make-up pictures and that you all speak your minds (your clever, creative, crazy & beautiful minds...). I have been blown away by the public sharing regarding topics as deep as abuse and depression - talk about vulnerability and putting yourself out there - absolutely amazing.  By doing so, you have helped others in ways you may never know.  <3Inspiration's what you are to me, inspiration, look... see.  Led Zeppelin - Thank YouYou have inspired me. (warning TL:DR personal stuff below) Oh, & I did include some new peeps.  If they're freaks, blame +Ben Zaitz.This month, I gathered some courage and let three people see me in, what was to me, a position of vulnerability.The first was a very dear friend from Elementary School.  For the past few years, I avoided HIRLing because I was ashamed of my weight and I guess I didn't want to disappoint him.  The same reason recently kept me from seeing a dear High School friend.  I saw them and each did not care that I was not perfect, they love me for me.  Mann, it was great to see their faces again, talk in person and have some non-virtual hugs.  <3I attribute this change in thinking to your responses to a July post: https://plus.google.com/115807723984369772514/posts/Ui2TQBPuELKAmong the other awesome words from you peeps, +Alvin Stearns wrote, "Never again compare yourself to others so that you make unfair and useless judgments about yourself or others.  That includes comparing yourself to you in the past."  The third was that, with your encouragement on a private post, I actually asked a guy out.  I would have never even considered doing that a year ago.  (He has a gf, so no deal, but it's all good cause he was cool.)I know these are little things, but I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.  And thank you to +matthew rappaport, Bobbi Jo Woods and +Tiffany Henry for coordinating the first NYCHIRL.

Danial Hallock (Kysimir)4,130The Three HundredRough DraftA few weeks ago I posted a rather lengthy post about how I was changing my #circlemanagement  strategy from purpose based to engagement based (http://goo.gl/kqE8h).  This is the first rough draft of that circle, minus a few ninjas that prefer not to be shared out.  As such, the landscape of this circle will change drastically over the next few months; but I wanted to give the people who are following this circle a glimpse of what to expect.  As always, If you're notified you're in it. If you're in it, why not recommend a few people for me to circle up, or share the circle out with your stream? :D #thethreehundred   #circleshare   #sharingiscaring  2012-10-22 15:52:142971201281CC G+
Alex Grossman27,422Last time I shared a relevancy circle was back in July. From then until now (October 19), it's only changed by 7 people, and most but not all of that was near the end of the list. So, it's remarkably consistent.These 99 users are on top of my relevance list (plus me since I'm relevant to myself, so a total of 100). I excluded Pages that were in there so as to only have people.Most of these folks are engaging with me through posts or comments (though some are clearly more by e-mail, such as a family member) and the Circle is definitely more accurate now than last time. Does the algorithm get better over time due to more data? I still suspect that as you go down you end up with a number of close calls in which the algorithm can go either way. If anybody has more details on the relevancy algorithm, I'd still be curious and interested to learn more about it.Anyway, these people are relevant to me and truly help me enjoy my time sharing, talking, discussing, and hanging out on G+. So, thank you to all of you :)TGIF and have a great start to the weekend!P.S. - Typical inconsistent G+ - I could share the Movie Lovers Circle earlier today with about 130 people being notified. However, by mid-morning I couldn't notify the 99 people in this Circle. Now, I can again.

Alex Grossman24,371My Top 99 circle - is Relevancy Accurate?These are the 99 users who are on top of my relevance list (plus me since I'm relevant to myself). I excluded Pages that were in there so as to only have people.Most of these folks are engaging with me through posts or comments (though some are clearly more by e-mail, such as a family member) and the Circle is surprisingly accurate until the last bit of it when some names appeared and others were left off. I suspect that as you go down you end up with a number of close calls in which the algorithm can go either way. If anybody has more details on the relevancy algorithm, I'd be curious to continue the discussions I've seen on other similar threads this week.Want to create your own?

Alex Grossman24,072For my second Circle today for Follow Friday, here is my Respectful Politics Circle. This Circle is by request only and not for the faint of heart. It's filled with people who are passionate about politics and issues that impact society and come from across the political spectrum - the point is to have fun, learn and share. If you're interested in joining the discussions, please let me know and I can add you to this Circle. No commitment to share your own posts, but it is preferred that you at least comment semi-regularly so as to encourage discussion. Just keep in mind that if you do participate that you do so in a respectful and civil manner. Let your passion fill you, but always temper it with manners, respect and politeness. Bullies will not be tolerated. The point is not to "win" but to learn. #followfriday   #followfridaycircle   #politics  2012-07-20 15:10:0498901CC G+

There is a very false binary idea being presented that people are falling for. The idea that the only way to care for your neighbor, if they are in need, is to have the government do it. Anything else means you're a horrible person and Jesus hates you.

I'm much closer to the flip side on this. If YOU can't be bothered to give people food, to give them blankets and mittens, to smile and talk to them and treat them with dignity and instead you leave it to the government... YOU are the one who needs to do a morality check on yourself. As far as I know, Jesus didn't tell people to leave it up to Judean administration to care for those in need. He told people to get off their butts and get their hands dirty while they open their hearts.

Delphi also tells us to help those in need, directly, and as often as we can, with respect. Most religions and nonreligious ethical systems... more »

My first book signing

I'm at the RV & Camping show in Minneapolis and I'm doing two presentations and signings a day on luxury tent camping. I've met great people, drank cocktails during the presentation, and signed books. Awesome time.

Bonus - my boobs look huge in this dress which is amazing since I'm totally flat. Note to self - wear this dress more often.

What should government do when many people ignore a law & there's no injury or damage? There's two approaches to take. Decide that all of you are the problem and take steps to force compliance OR take a look at the rule and see if it's necessary or should be modified in some way. Which do you think is the more needed, common sense approach?

So this chick with Celiacs is going to drink an awesome craft beer

No joke. I'm going to crack open this APA and drink it down all casual like. And I'm going to enjoy every drop.

I haven't had beer very often, once I had to go #GlutenFree ... and the few gf beers I've had have bern ermented vomit with soy sprinkles on top. Not tastey.

This gf beer from Burning Brothers? Freakng amazing. Nice crisp, hoppy APA - can't tell it's gf. At all.

I think they only sell in Minnesota right now, but that should change.

Attention Star Wars Geeks

You know you want this. 
Yes! Luke's favorite warm-me-up, mounted and ready to hang on the wall. Made from a used, recycled action figure with a soft, faux suede pad just behind the head. The plaque is lightweight wood making it easy to hang. The back comes complete with felt and a metal hanger. Also, the plague is covered in luxurious 100% leather - very classy! Size: 8" wide x 13 1/2" high x 6" deep.

If he does Jar Jar, it shall be MINE!

I don't use Mozilla because it crashes. I don't use Explorer because I'm not a total moron. Sending a questionnaire to senior management on their personal and religious views is NOT how I choose my web browser. Know why? Because it's none of my freaking business, that's why.

And OK Cupid? You have zero, and I mean ZERO, moral high ground. The misogynistic, sexually violent, and harassing crap you allow to go down on your site? Yeah.... slow clap ...you're a real hero.

this was at my bedside when I woke up
I caught the cold/flu/plague that's going around. High fever, sore throat, body aches, lots of nose blowing. My husband put out the can of mandarin oranges because that's what I've been craving. The only thing that tastes good. And the ChapStick, because my lips cracked and bled.

He also did it because yesterday was a long, hard day. I covered the kind of story that kills you to cover - when someone you know and like is charged with something horrible. To compound it, he's fairly prominent in your religious community. I don't know if Kenny Klein is guilty of possession of sexually explicit photos and videos of kids under 13. The courts will sort that out. But the ripples from this still need to be dealt with and we don't yet know what they are.

Because our religions, like so many groups, has a history of covering... more »

Suicide, the ultimate protest vote

There will always be a percentage of a population that takes their own life due to uniquely personal tragedy such as the death of a loved one, but how many more make the attempt due to cultural and political forces?

Suicide is attempted when there's an overwhelming feeling of hopelessness, a loss of self worth, or shame. It's the ultimate protest vote, the final word, a last ditch plea to notice that something is so very wrong that that they have no choice but to exit the system that is crushing them.

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US

GLTB teens are 3 times more likely to commit suicide than hetro teens, but suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death for all US teens. As horrible as that is, it's actually adult in their prime (45 to 65) that have the highest suicide rate by age group.... more »

Green Energy Standing Still

I'm fully supportive of getting off fossil fuels, if for no other reason, than to tell screwed up countries to go suck rocks since we don't need your oil anymore, but we are so illogical about this.

The anti-science far left opposes nuclear energy. Wind and solar energy works so much better when it is set to an individual home or business's needs and location (wind farms take more energy than they can produce).

But greater emphasis on conservation, which is often made illegal through local/state regulations, would help greatly. Cob or strawbale homes, depending on climate, are extremely energy efficient and have been around for centuries. Very kind on resources to build, too. Yet there's almost no place in the US where they are legal to build. Rain water catchment and graywater systems are illegal in many places, too.

There's a fundraiser going on for +Frisco Native American Museum

They're trying to create a living village type atmosphere for the future!  This year, the focus is going to be a traditional garden, dugout canoe, tree planting, and preparations for a long house. 

Please share far and wide!  Let's see a brand new outdoor exhibit that shows how the original inhabitants of the OBX lived!

Best #GlutenFree pizza (frozen) I've ever had.
Hell, it was the best frozen pizza I've had, period. The crust was better than most regular pizzas, it had cheese mixed in so it tasted slightly like cheddar goldfish - and I don't mean that in a negative. The mozzarella cheese topping was soft and fresh, like it had been shredded that day. And the uncured pepperoni? OMG - I want to eat a whole stick of it.

I've had many, many GF pizzas and not only was this the best frozen pizza, it was better than most every freshly made GF pizza I've had at pizza joints.

Poland asks NATO to prepare to defend them against Russia

If you want an idea of how fast this is spinning out of control, Poland requested an Article 4 Consultation with NATO members.

"Under article 4 of the Treaty, any Ally can request consultations whenever, in the opinion of any of them, their territorial integrity, political independence or security is threatened."

Poland feels threatened enough that war will spill over their borders, along with Russian tanks or jets, that they are taking this step and giving NATO a heads up that they may need military help.

Google praises Glenn Beck

If you haven't been paying attention to the new media empire Beck is building, you're out of the loop. No matters your views on Beck's views, the man is not stupid or out of date and certainly blows the stereotype of conservatives as living in the past or not embracing new technology out of the water.

His podcasts are in the top 10 and the Blaze is the 10th most viral site on the net. His fusion of cable and internet is a case study for the transition from traditional media to new media and none of the traditional networks have even started to figure it out.

Why I'm Hooked On Medium
Is it trash tv? Yes. Doesn't matter. I'm hooked on this tv series (netflix, thank you) because

Allison isn't a size 2 (she may be a blond white chick +Te-Erika Patterson , but at least we are spared the size 2, right?) and it is so refreshing to see a female lead who is closer to normal in size.

Her house is cluttered. Not showroom perfect. But within her means of living. As are her clothes and hair and makeup. They struggle with money, too. And drive shitty cars. And worry about bills.

Her kids aren't perfect, but they aren't set up as poor children to pity, either. And while Allison her husband are good parents, they aren't perfect. At all.

A realistic marriage is portrayed. They make love in the 15 minutes they have before the kids wake. They fight. They support one another. They have needs and... more »

The print version of my glamping  book is slowly making its way to my Kickstarter Backers – they were sent to me in small boxes 10 at a time spread out over a 2 week period – weird. It’s been fun to see people post on social media as they receive the book in the mail.  The ebook version has already been emailed out to all Backers, so if you didn’t see it, please check your SPAM folder! The book is on sale at Amazon and customers are starting to order it.

I’ve been on pins and needles wondering what the reaction will be. Will they think it was worth backing? Was it worth the wait? Is it helpful? What will they say? Arghhh…the insecurities that devil authors. Or at least, this author.

I just received my first review of the book on Amazon, and I’m really surprised. It appears the person bought the book as something of a joke.

Lessons to learn from Ukrainian Protestors

Sharing this for two reasons:
1. Because (in case you haven't noticed) our country is showing no sign of slowing down its statist trajectory. I'm concerned a lack of will to peacefully push back now means true fighting later. Both major parties' elected officials are supportive of mass spying on citizens, our exceptionally high imprisonment rates, presidential kill lists, the militarization of law enforcement, etc, etc, etc. Many citizens are good with this too, all in the name of safety. But the government will go too far, at some point. The sooner we get to that point, the better the chance for a peaceful resolution. I DO NOT want violence and turmoil.



2. Because this destroys anti2A arguments that civilians have no chance in a civil war against the government. Anytime it is mentioned that the Right to... more »

Buffer is such a great app, when it works. The unfortunate thing is, it works sporadically.

The app is like a much easier version of HootSuite. You load up your posts and mark which social media you'd like to post it to. It then schedules it for prime posting time and gives you analytics. You can load it up with days of tweets and posts in just a few minutes.

The two bugs I encounter are the clock randomly resets to some other timezone so posts happen at 4am and it stops posting to one of your social media channels. So you have to check all the time and redo and reset up once every week or two. That makes it not a time saver.

If it were more reliable, I'd go from the free version to the paid version in a heartbeat. I'd hook it up to every page, group, and social media Chanel I have.

Hoping the bugs get worked out soon because when it works, it... more »

Nexus 7 weird battery fix (slow charge)

I've had my Nexus 7 for over a year and like many, many, many, many 7 owners I experience the supreme frustration of a slow charging battery. Like charging it all damn night and not waking up to a fully charged battery.

And yes....we're all using the original cord and wall plug thankyouverymuch. And yes, this problem happens randomly to people with old and new versions of the 7.

The most common "fix" is to plug the 7 into the wall and then plug/unplug/plug super fast 5 or more times. This evidently resets some weird thing in the software that gets hosed up EVERY DAMN TIME THEY UPDATE THE SOFTWARE. You can see the difference in charging from my screen cap.

So if you're having charging problems with slow charging of your Nexus 7, give the plug/unplug/plug thing a try. Or sacrifice a goat and... more »

I can't take it anymore. Ok. Dunn trial. Here's the deal.

He was convicted of 3 counts of 2nd degree attempted murder and will serve 60 years with a possible 15 year kicker. Dude is NEVER getting out of jail.

The jury hung on the charge of 1st degree murder because the DA got cute and wanted to over charge. IF the DA had charged it out at 2nd degree murder, he would have been convicted. The DA is planning on another trial for the murder charge, hopefully she pulls her head out of her butt and reduces the charge to 2nd degree murder.

Stand Your Ground was NOT invoked as a defense in this trial, nor in the Zimmerman trial. Defense went with simple defense saying the guys brandished a shotgun at him.

The jury did a good job and saw through Dunn's BS AND the DAs BS. The jury system worked.

Dunn was an egomaniac idiot who thought he'd... more »

Be a Valentine Sweetie and show this band some love
I witnessed this band's birth a few years ago and I was BLOWN AWAY. Usually I hate folk music with a passion, but this is a bit more moody without being emo and I love it. So happy they are finally putting out a CD. But they need help with the last bit of costs so they can finish. Their goal amount is only $750 and if you back them, you get the CD in either physical format, digital, or both!

If you want to know why I am so crazy for them, take a listen to this song, "They Know" - http://crowcall.bandcamp.com/
Beautiful, haunting, catchy. Can't tell you how many times I've listened to this song!

Today is the #DayWeFightBack and #StopTheNSA

THE FACTS

The NSA "has secretly broken into the main communications links that connect Yahoo and Google data centers around the world."— THE NEW YORK Times

The NSA collected "almost 3 billion pieces of intelligence from US computer networks" in one month in 2013.— THE GUARDIAN

The NSA is collecting the content and metadata of emails, web activity, chats, social networks, and everything else as part of what it calls "upstream" collection.— THE WASHINGTON POST

The NSA "is harvesting hundreds of millions of contact lists from personal e-mail and instant messaging accounts around the world, many of them belonging to Americans."— THE WASHINGTON POST

WHAT WE CAN DO

#StopTheNSA

The USA Freedom Act (S. 1599) is a bipartisan bill introd-uced by Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI).

If passed, this bill would be a substantial improvement to America’s laws regarding mass surveillance.

It brings new levels of transparency to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA court)
It introduces a special advocate to champion civil liberties in the FISA court
It appears to create new statutory limits on mass surveillance by the NSA.

However, this bill is a floor, not a ceiling. Here's how it could be improved:

It could clarify in plain language that bulk surveillance is illegal and prevent the FBI from issuing National Security Letters without prior review by a judge.Include language to stop the NSA from undermining international encryption standards.Have strongerlanguage to ... more »

Best #GlutenFree bread ever

Most gf bread is dry and tastes like crap. I've tried baking my own and buying fresh from a bakery. But this 7 grain bread by Canyon Bakehouse
Is amazing. Moist, delicious. So good i could eat it plain right out of the bag. You can buy it at Target in the bakery section. I sound like a commercial. But damn...so good i had to share.

My first book signing

I'm at the RV & Camping show in Minneapolis and I'm doing two presentations and signings a day on luxury tent camping. I've met great people, drank cocktails during the presentation, and signed books. Awesome time.

Bonus - my boobs look huge in this dress which is amazing since I'm totally flat. Note to self - wear this dress more often.

People commenting on Cheerio's ad make me sick - but not for the reason you're thinking

It's not the thankfully few racists that make me ill, it's all the people treating this fictional family like a trendy pet that make me ill.

I'm watching editorialists, commentators, and average folks Ohhhhh and Ahhhh over the ad by Cheerio's and talk about how horrible the mean evil racists are who are bashing this fictional multi-racial family. Which is what Cheerio's was going for. They created an ad that they knew would stir up the White Power peeps and would cause others to leap to their defense and talk about how awesome this company is and how brave. I'm not going to bag on General Mills because that's the kind of reaction advertising is supposed to elicit.

I WILL bag on all my fellow white people who are gushing over this ad, simply... more »

A bit crass, but if you have a product, be creative in looking for new markets

The most obvious market for your product may not be your biggest market. Find out where, and how, people are talking about your product/book/topic and see what they're up to. Never know what opportunities are out there.

Best ad of the #SuperBowl - And you didn't see it

This ad was a laocl insert and so only seen in parts of Georgia. Usually that's a blessing. Local ads suck. THIS ad? Amazing!

Somebody hasn't read their Homer

Pet peeve of mine is when people criticize things they obviously haven't read. The mythos of the war between the Greeks and Trojans isn't exactly an obscure mythos, but that's what makes many parts of it so greatly and univerally misunderstood. People hear a poorly done cliff notes version, and pass it along, and then someone else does a worse job and passes it along. Then, like in the game telephone, what we end up with is not the original message.  Add in a total loss of cultural context and there you go.

I'm not picking on Philip. Philip just got screwed by the game telephone and hasn't (yet) checked out the real book for himself.

But gah. Don't get me started on the Akhillios as a pouting bitch misunderstanding. If your quality of after life was determined in part by how honored you were by others... more »

Anyone else notice we have a Nobel Peace Prize winner (Pres Obama) trying to imprison a Nobel Peace Prize nominee (Snowden)?

Aghast at the ignorance

Talking with someone and they actually believe that Christianity saved Romans from the sin of polygamy. No kidding. they think that ancient Romans were polygamists and thankfully Christianity saved them from their wicked ways and introduced monogamy and marriage to the world.

Is there any point to even trying to correct such a completely wrong version of world history?

This is what 2550 words for my next book looks like. Yes, it looks like carrot cake and milk.

A room of one's own

It is true that having a space, if that's a spot on the kitchen table or an entire room, is needed if you do any type of creative work. I'm just getting set up in my new (to me) town home and I have an entire glorious room for writing and sewing. Can't wait to paint it and add shelves for storage. I am exceedingly fortunate that I have such a space.

Changing a culture of violence to a culture of peaceful coexistence

When I talk about a culture of violence, I'm not talking about video games or murders. That's just a by product, a symptom. I'm talking about the very basis of our culture and how it is so steeped in threats of force and violence we don't even see it as such anymore.

Our social compact, which is embodied in our government, is build on threats, coercion, and violence as a first, last, and only resort.

Some of you are laughing now, thinking that's preposterous. I mean, we're a democratic republic! We vote and agree, or agree to disagree.

Just think about this: every single law we have, outside of a very small section of criminal code aimed at punishing violent acts or fraud, exist because one set of citizens want to use the full might of government to force all other... more »

I'd rather eat brussel sprouts while shoveling glass up my vagina than watch the #SOTU address tonight. A bit of hyperbole. About the sprouts.

Praying for peace in Ukraine

You don't have to be religious to appreciate the power in this photo. Orthodox Priests are standing between police and protester, facing one way and praying, the facing the other way and praying. They've been doing it in shifts for hours and show no signs of stopping.

The tension is between proRussian and more nationalist sentiments. Mix in government corruption, pro-democracy, ethnic Russians and ethnic Ukrainians, and white power elements and you have all sorts of fun.

To lose weight, drink whole milk, not skim
What I've long suspected is born out by research, drinking whole milk isn't bad for you. Can't tell you the number of times, when people see me drink whole milk or use real butter, that they urge me to change to margarine and skim milk to lose weight and be healthy.

I know what my hair and skin look like when I have real, whole foods (especially milk) and how poor and lack luster I look without. But now studies are showing the truth of the matter. You'll gain more weight drinking skim milk than whole because skim has more sugar in it. It's sugar and starch (which is sugar) you should avoid, not fat.

And if you can, go organic.

My Book!
My book arrived today and I'm so excited and happy I'm about to run down the street screaming. But I won't because that's a good way to get picked up by the 5 O.

It's taken 2 years, but my #camping  book is finally in print. I have it on createspace for advance readers and it goes live on Amazon and other places in 2 months! I've ordered the books for my Kickstarter backer and they'll be sent out shortly.

It's finally really real!
