  1. I love it lightly steamed with fresh lime and salt. I also like to add it into salad(you could steam it alittle to see if that helps eith the gas) and I love to use it as a topping on pizza and in soup!

  2. I love Mexican food!

    Besides the fake guacamole and cheap salsa, what I don't like in grocery stores is they never sell tortillas made of corn flour, always wheat ! At least there's some corn chips.


    If you can get Masa Harina you could make your own corn tortillas!

  3. HEy all! I think it is great this discussion is going on. There are lots of valid points being raised.


    The thing that bothers me the very most is the language Johnny is using to promote the place. Viewing women as meat. The attitudes he is perpetuating toward women are not ok. strip club owner or not...unfortunately this attitude is the norm.


    Anyway...it just so happens that we are showing a movie about women in advertising tomorrow night at the Red and Black Cafe. Starts at 7p.m.


    The name is the movie is Killing Us Softly 3 Advertising's Image of Women with Jean Kilbourne.

    We will have a discussion to follow.

    Please join us!

  4. What a reward, a bunch of unhealthy food! Weather you are Omni or not it seems more sensible to offer healthy food....if nothing else it would keep the call offs (due to sickness) less and the longevity of the workers at an increase.

    Some people don't think it is food unless it has some dead animal or animal secretions in it.

  5. My job often get me stressed out, often I have no time left for exercises or meditations. I was just wondering if there are other ways to reduce stress? Please help.


    A relaxing massage increases Parasympathetic Nervous System firing and is great for decreasing stress.


    Plus you don't have to meditate for hours, you can just do some deep breathing at night in bed before going to sleep and a short meditation. You can probably buy a guided meditation CD even...or take yourself through one. You can tense up parts of your body and then relax them, starting with your feet and working superior section by section.


    Bath with essetial oils, dried flowers, and candles.

    You can put a stress reducing essential oil on a washcloth and use it on your body in the shower.


    It is very importatnt to make time for yourself, find what works for you and do it. Stress can cause all kinds of illness, as I am sure you know.

  6. I love Mexico. I have not been to Guadalajara or Guanajuato but I have heard great things about both... I like to avoid the tourist areas and meet people who live in the areas I am visiting and just do they types of things they do. I have not bee to Mexico for Day of the Dead but I wish to.

    Ride the buses, the trains etc. There is so much to see.

    I agree with what folks are saying about the U.S. as well but I also like to go to see other cultures.

    Although, there are many cultures with in the U.S. New Orleans Bayou, Appalacians, Native Americans (may tribes), SW U.S. etc.

    I too, love to travel

    Have a great time in whatever you decide!

  7. Looks like you are having fun! I would love to visit New England sometime! I have been saying that forever....but one day I will do it!

    I like any kind of rowboating too.

    Good to see you both, (and the doggies too) even if it is only photos!
