Excellent Tee.......

No problems with the shameless plug for Jack's CD. I have a copy (thanks to Jack) and it IS superb!!!!!!!

Thanks for the pix guys and gal. Always great to see Happy Moon folk.

Hope to meet a few more of you myself in the next few days/months/years............how sadistic is that????

Then I went to see an old friend turn 40 and had meals again... and beer. I gained six back

Anyway....sorry father kirk for the confessional...here's how...

1) I'm home on Mondays, so I cook my lunch for the week. I make chicken or meat and mix it with a vegetable and rice. Bland, but I'm a bland guy. I also eat a salad with fruit. I have this affinity for "filled" crackers and trail mix, which I also eat. I think I'm eating too much for lunch as of late, but it saves me from fast food or eating on the run. I work at three part-time jobs, so I don't want to worry about going out to eat.
I'll second that. I met Rick several times... he's very bland!

Seriously, the carbs in the rice... give 'em up! Fruit... lots of carb. Trail mix... more carbs and fats too (there are nuts in your mix?).

I was only drinking diet Ginger Ale for a while, but have since switched to root beer or diet soda. The problem with that is that there's more sugar in them than a Partidge Family tune, but total abstinence would be too hard to maintain, so I expand it a bit. But definitely no more regular soda...I think that's a major factor.
Soft drinks are evil... Look at some of these numbers:

Sugars Content of Carbonated Non-Diet Soft Drinks / Sugars grams per 12 fl. oz (360 mL)
Minute Maid Orange Soda (Coca-Cola Co.) / 48
Mountain Dew (PepsiCo) / 46
Pepsi / 41
Dr Pepper (Cadbury Schweppes) / 40
Coca-Cola Classic / 39
7Up (Cadbury Schweppes) / 39
Sprite (Coca-Cola Co.) / 38

For comparison, 40 grams of sugar is 10 teaspoons! That's gross!


Calorie Content of Carbonated Non-Diet Soft Drinks / Calories per 12 fl. oz (360 mL)
Minute Maid Orange Soda (Coca-Cola Co.) / 180
Mountain Dew (PepsiCo) / 165
Dr Pepper (Cadbury Schweppes) / 160
Pepsi / 150
Coca-Cola Classic / 140
Sprite (Coca-Cola Co.) / 140
7Up (Cadbury Schweppes) / 140

For comparision, a *pint* of Guinness is 125 calories.

i second that soft drinks statement.

besides sugar/carbo loading, you're treating your
insides to an acid bath. if you want to swear off,
it's easy to gross yourself out~
place a small piece of beef in a glass of cola.
2 days later, the meat's 100% dissolved.

pennies take about 2 weeks.

try substituting roasted almonds for your trail mix.
they're a protein, and recent studies show they
lower cholesterol. observe portions, don't overdo it.

try things like fat free ryecrisps and organic almond butter
for a more nutritious version of filled crackers.

the main thing is, don't beat yourself up for an
occassional slip. it took years to put the weight on,
it takes time to adjust the habits.

i say if you can lose weight or slow the alchohol intake
while raising teenagers, you need to write a book.

After seeing that, I switched to Mountain Dew.

All the sugar, twice the caffeine. Wait: that's Jolt.

Ah well...

yeah, you know Coke actually uses the syrup to
clean their truck engines...???

the tanks carry the acid/corrosive emblem.
if a syrup tanker wrecks, hazmat teams do the cleanup.

---------------------

seems like there's a few of us here in the
"teenage endgame"

all i'll say is, monitor the ipods, mix cds from friends,
view the history of net sites visits.
you don't really know what they're listening to.
it's easy to dismiss it as "that's what my parents
said about the beatles"...that gets a carlos mencina
"deet dee dee".

if you spot insane clown posse music or merchandising,
ignore doug adams and PANIC!! seriously.

Didn't Primus do a record about that?:

Well, maybe I should start writing. Wait...I think I transferred my intake to him

Three (3) Oreo cookies (the mfg's suggested serving size) is:

Calories: 160
Calories from fat: 60
Calories from carbohydrates: 94
Calories from protein: 2

Sugars: 13g
Protein: 2g
Total carbohydrate: 24g
Saturated fat: 1.5g
Sodium: 210mg

10g of sugar is a teaspoon.
2400mg sodium is a teaspoon of salt.

If you eat the suggested serving size, you're probably OK.

Hi all:

It was fun to meet the TeerminEIGHTor! Chris e-mailed to tell me that he was coming into S.F. to see Marillion, and asked if I wanted to go. Sadly, I couldn't make the show, but I was happy to be able to get together with Chris for pizza and beer! Thanks Chris! (And thanks for the shameless plug!)

If anyone else is visiting San Francisco . . . I can't promise that I'll pick you up at the airport! But e-mail me, and who knows!

Indeed. One of the better benefits of being on staff is the ability to ... er ... sample the wares. Jazzraptor has yet to disappoint. Ever.

You can purchase Jack Foster III - Raptorgnosis cd @ musea records (which might be better for you Wojtek) http://217.128.227.4/boutique/anglais/index.php or @ http://www.muse-wrapped.com Jack's record label. I definitely like this cd better than the first one and the first one was great.

Went to Wichita Kansas this weekend and had dinner with Avian and his lovely wife. We ate at a wonderful Bayou cuisine restaurant called Red Beans. We ended up chatting for almost 4 hours, hated to leave. Very good evening. We've got to have a Moonie convention.

tee, you must be fast approaching vax's record for moonie meetings.

good to see you, avian.

unfortunately, spike and i didn't manage to meet up in Vegas due to weddings and cell phones that didn't co-operate.

we've been talking about a moonie convention for a long time. as far as a halfway point between west coast usa and across the pond, maybe Rosfest would be the time and place?

ROSfest would be great and it's shaping up nicely too...

Chris has met 4 moonies IIRC: Mossy, Nadina, Avian and myself. 5 if Mrs. VAX counts. I've got 15 to my count.
