    Re: Why You Should Eat More Ginger

    Well, sometimes I mess it up before I can fix it but then I saw where it had gone wrong. BTW, when you first post an item there is a little box in the band of tools above the window where you can add...

    When I brought home a rescued German Shepherd to my three cats, each one reacted differently. My gray tabby, another rescue, accepted the dog immediately. My calico was completely standoffish but...

    Re: 9 Foods That Shouldn't Be Consumed Raw

    I completely agree with this, Pattypans. I'm assuming the article addresses the population at large, the general public that buys supermarket sprouts. I can remember several recalls of contaminated...

    Re: 9 Foods That Shouldn't Be Consumed Raw

    I would object to eggs and milk. The days of filthy henhouses and contaminated dairies are far behind us. A few states still legislate against raw milk but it's far more common and commercially...
