Re: What PIE do you like best?

I have met very few pies I didn't like, but I definitely prefer fruit overall. And not this lemon meringue business, either, I want chunks of fruit, not fruit-flavored jelly stuff. Classic apple is probably the best. I bought a really nice apple pie at a local apple orchard last weekend and brought ...

Re: What is "Natural" - Is "Organic" the same thing?

You know, I've never really done a comparison, and even when we buy eggs at the store they are free-range eggs from a local farm that are sold at the co-op.

Maybe I should science it.

Re: What is "Natural" - Is "Organic" the same thing?

Yeah, nutritionally-speaking, eggs that you get from your own chickens or free-range chickens (that are ACTUALLY free-range, not just in slightly-larger cages) are going to be superior, because they aren't necessarily being fed corn and soy, and are probably getting more in the way of roughage and b...

If people don't want to hear a baby cry, then they should want to see a baby breastfeeding. I don't know if the other opinion would say that. Why not formula feed or no baby at all?

Breastfeeding is only remotely like getting a little nooky. But I don't think it's unfair to wonder if it's indecent. That's the issue: Breastfeeding has absolutely nothing to do with sex. So there's no justification for calling it indecent. Peeing in public has nothing to do with sex either, but i...
