With all the variations of sweeteners out there, sugar, honey, the altered corn sweeteners, plus all the manmade chemical-based ones like sucralose, saccarhin, and aspertame, it can be difficult to find something to take care of a sweets craving, and avoid all the side effects. The best route to take comes from the Andes and has been cultivated there since the days of the Inca, Nazca, and Moche Indians. It’s a little flower that thrives in these mountains, and creates a nectar that is ten times sweeter than sugar, safe for diabetics, and even provides fiber. Take a chance on Stevia someday, and you might finally find that sweet fix you’ve been looking for. You can buy stevia at most supermarkets, and it is found in the baking goods section of the store. There are online stores that feature stevia, like http://www.stevia.com, and http://truvia.com. Try a packet in your tea some time, and you’ll never go back to the pink, blue, or yellow stuff.
This book is one of my favorites from Roger Zelazny. The 2 Amber Chronicles are my all time favorite from him though, but this book Isle of the Dead I have read almost as many times as the Chronicles. This story, even though it was one of his earlier, is why we still love all of Zelany’s works. They are just that good even though a lot of critics of the day and even now do not like his work. Then again how many fantasy or sci-fi pieces truly get reviewed for what they are. People see them as worthless wastes of time. I say they show the true soul of humanity and can show us how to better ourselves. Rodger and his contemporary artists were men like that. They may have their faults but their stories can teach much about ourselves and the world around us.
I just saw this on the BBC Scotland News from me following them on Twitter – teacher suicide remark I really do hope that they are suspended indefinitely.
It is just plain wrong to tell any child that another child is going to go to hell for any reason. They are children and saying things like that just foster intolerance and hate among kids. I know the child in question took their own life but that does not give the teacher the right to tell her other students in a classroom environment that their classmate, that I am sure some cared about deeply, are going to go to hell. For many children hell is used to scare them straight. To them it is the worst possible place to go, it is even worse then death itself. To say that….
Online comics are hear to stay so I have decided to give my impressions about some of the ones that I read all the time. If you know of one that you want reviewed then let me know and I will take a look at it. That being said my first review about an online comic is Menage a 3 If you haven’t ever seen it then you should head on over to http://www.menagea3.net/ and check it out.
Warning: It is adult rated and does have drawn nudity and sexual situations through the entire comic. If you don’t want to see that sort of thing then don’t go see it as you would not like it then.
There are many religions in this world and the majority of them are about helping each other be better people. Those are the religions that should be fostered and built upon. It is the religions of hate that should be done away with. Tell me, which would you rather have near you, a person that cares about the health and well being of what is around them or a person that wants to control everything that is happening and that if you don’t believe what they say then you should die? I know who I would want near me and I would not be too concerned about what their exact faith would be.
