I think it's kind of sad that when I think raw food or fruit I think BigBwii.

As long as the association doesn't turn you off the diet.... :wink:
I still associate Bigbwii with the fruitarian diet. I always marvel over how difficult it must be to maintain a fruitarian diet with family gatherings, restaurants, work functions.... Wow!!!!

I find it absolutely fascinating!!
What is the hardest part of maintaining the diet?
restaurants?
I find it tough enough finding vegan options at some functions and restaurants. :shock:

:fball: :D

Found a new group to play indoor soccer with!
It was awesome!! They are all older guys who know the game and have some skill.
They play in a gymnasium and use hockey nets as goals.
4 aside, no goalies. It was a great workout, good bunch of people. Just playing for fun, no keeping score, if someone slips or falls, everyone stops play immediately.
Thoroughly enjoyed it!!!
I wish I wasn't signed up in the league I play in.... I'm feeling obligated to play out the season as it would leave the team a bit short on players, but at the same time I'm not enjoying it and there is a risk of injury playing with overly aggressive players.
Hmmmm :?

One week until christmas!
It's a fun time of the year (especially when there are kids in the mix)

I find it a little strange though (celebrating christmas) when we don't consider ourselves to be christians. Our christmas celebration is more about family, sharing and peace.

I don't know if it's just me, but it seems like christmas is becoming more and more of a non-religious holiday.
More about santa than jesus.
That being said, in a multi-ethnic society, why are christmas and easter statutory holidays? Really doesn't seem fair to other groups.
But I suppose if I were in political office ..... I sure wouldn't want to be the one to cancel christmas :wink:

This time of the year is absolute TORTURE when it comes to watching your diet.
As if the parties and get togethers aren't enough, I work at a foodservice provider so there is food EVERYWHERE.
This is a real challenge. If I can make it through the next couple weeks 2007 should be a breeze!!!!!

sugar = :twisted:

Oh boy.......
it's time for another soccer game tonight. Our team representative had a conference call with the league convenor and facility manager this week.
It sounds like they are going to clamp down on the aggressive play.

I sure hope so, cuz I sure don't fancy spending the holiday season in a cast!
If not for the obligation to my teammates, I would probably skip this game.

Interesting experience at lunch today.

I stopped by the local pita shop and was talking with the manager. Turns out he has been vegetarian for 1 and a half years and is interested in going vegan.
He gave up meat after viewing a PETA film clip and routinely challenges anyone who belittles his beliefs to sit through the film and see if they still feel the same way.
The thing I found interesting about this person is that he is a bit of a fighter (literally) Played hockey & football, engaged in bar fights etc....
He acknowledges this and the fact that "he'd love to go into one of those slaughterhouses and beat the sh*t out of all those guys"

Interesting how people can be so compassionate in one way but so violent in another. :?

I have now had it up to here with this indoor soccer league!!!!!
Took a nasty kick across the ankle bone last night. Again it was one younger player who was a little over zealous.

I'm now leaning towards calling it a season and playing with the more civil group at the gym.
My ankle just can't handle this abuse.

Why oh why can't people understand what RECREATIONAL play is????

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!!!

Ahhhhhh!!!
I feel relaxed now ( except for the mental anguish from watching "an Inconvenient truth" and "Blood Diamond" over the holidays)

I've actually been sleeping in until 8:00 - 8:30 !!!
We had a pretty large snowfall the other day. We created 2 toboggan slides and a half pipe over the last 2 days.

As much as I curse the cold, snow is a lot of fun! :D

My aforementioned movie viewings have caused me to really think about my personal priorities.

I have always been somewhat compassionate and socially responsible but I'm still a big sports fan.
I have to admit that as much as I truly love sports, I question why I waste so much of my time on it. I suppose that sports is a bit of a release or escape for me, the way books and movies are for others. It will no doubt come down to determining what is an acceptable amount of "escapism time" but nevertheless sports seem to be relatively meaningless when one looks at the issues facing humanity and our environment.
I can't help but feel sickened by the obscene amounts of money being paid to athletes and actors. But this too brings up another issue.... If it were me receiving this amont of money..... would it change my viewpoint?
At this point of my life, I would say no. An enormous percentage of it would go to charity, but....... when I was younger (at the age of many of these athletes and actors) it would probably be different.
* How much is too much?
* Should there be an obligation to share your wealth with those less fortunate?
* Do we need that enormous SUV or would a lesser priced more fuel efficient used vehicle do?
* Do we need a 4000 Sq Ft home?
* Do we need 4 TV's in our homes?

Seems to me that greed & consumerism is a major obstacle to the evolution of humanity and the environment.

Okay ...I'm through rambling (at least for now) :wink:
