    From Catherine Collins RD member of the BDA that promotes a high carb diet for diabetics this line from the Lancet article "And medicine seems comfortable allowing quacks and charlatans to prosper. Insane indeed." should include dietitians that promote a high carb diet for diabetes

    Quacks and charlatans. That about sums her up, Clueless muppets who know where the brown envelopes come from.

    I had a horrifying though the other day. When the New Eatwell Plate turns out to be an even bigger disaster than the previous version, as it surely will, this will be blamed on doctors failing to apply it to patients and it will be made illegal to recommend or even discuss anything else.

    Greg Wallace grinning all over his fat face, advising how to eat well for less. Pushing his 'healthy' low-fat burgers, full of your 'five-a-day' and not knowing the first thing about nutrition; just like the nutritionist they use. She has me bouncing around the room in frustration. Too much fat makes you fat! You need your five a day; and she means the most sugary-starchy fruits you can find. Same old mantra. Just when will they stop thinking about money, and realise they are killing people, who rely on them. I don't think I am overstating the case when I say they ought to be arrested and locked up. It has me hovering with rage! rain

    "Greg Wallace grinning all over his fat face" Agree, a complete pratt in many ways. The media world is full of mediocre 'celebs' The TV programs have gone for cheap fly on the wall programs big time for sure. Line up an ever growing line of wannabees, and Z list have been's, and voila, the plebs are glued to the box. This short vid has worked the dynamic duo out.

    Having a look around before turning in and ended up at the forum of flog.

    "I wasnt even aware that the heart burned sugar or fat I always thought the heart was a just pump."

    Who else but Sid (the enforcer) Bonkers

    As someone told him, the heart is a muscle, perhaps Sid thinks we run on fresh air. No wonder his 17 grams of cornflakes and a splash of semi-skimmed keeps him going, but what about that 4lb muscle between his ears. affraid

    Surfing around the other day I discovered this bloke. Seems to have a healthy outlook on life, the fate of the working man eh.

    “How in the hell could a man enjoy being awakened at 6:30 a.m. by an alarm clock, leap out of bed, dress, force-feed, shit, piss, brush teeth and hair, and fight traffic to get to a place where essentially you made lots of money for somebody else and were asked to be grateful for the opportunity to do so?”

    Charles Bukowski,

    Why do we work for so many years to collect a hell of a lot of junk. One of our sons is clearing out an old persons house, because the person has gone into a nursing home and must sell her house to pay the ludicrously high fees. Apart from the value of the house, the rest might pay a couple of weeks fees. A whole lifetime of work doesn't amount to much in the end for most. There is another way, but not for the feint hearted.


    This struck a chord with me years ago.

    “So it is no wonder that the mass of people regard the wanderer as a cross between a romantic vagabond and an irresponsible semi-ne’er-do-well who can’t-or won’t-fit in. Which is not to say that those who are fated to stay at home and toe the line do not look at the wanderer with envy and, yes, even awe, for he is doing what they would like to be doing, and something tells them they will never do it unless they either “strike it rich” or retire -and once retirement rolls around, chances are it will be too late. They know that too.

    This would seem to mean that the whole thing is largely a matter of luck, with which I would be the first to agree, having been blessed with good fortune through most of my working life. But I would be remiss if I didn’t add that if you want to wander, you’re going to have to work at it and give up the one thing that most non-wanderers prize so highly-the illusion of security.

    I say “illusion” because the most “secure” people I’ve encountered are, when you come right down to it, the least secure once they have been removed from job and home and bank account. While those unfortunate enough to be locked into some despised and unrewarding job are even worse off. And if I have been favoured with good luck all down the years, I can also quickly single out scores of men and women spread around this beleaguered old world who, without “luck”, have managed to live lives of freedom and adventure (that curious word) beyond the wildest dreams of the stay-at-homes who, when fresh out of school, opted for that great destroyer of men’s souls, security.”

    Sterling Hayden from his book The Wanderer

    although i got bored during the wanderer poem? thingy, this deepness of thinking is shallow, firstly why the hell couldn't someone be happy getting out of bed yada yada yada, if it wasn't so shallow he wouldn't care about making someone else rich as apparently the richness of someone isn't important, personally i don't look at wanderers with envy, nothing i like more than feeling like I've earn a wage doing honest work, getting home to the best house i can afford and watching the biggest telly i can afford on the biggest sofa i can afford in the knowledge i earned as much money today as i could to give me family what they want or need

    some would call me a sucker, i would call them.... fk all, i couldn't care aless what they do or say but don't stand outside my window in the rain hoping for a handout, get a job you lazy wandering hobo

    **laughing my ass off emoji** can't do emojis on this computer, god i must be bored

    Charles Bukowski was a successful writer in his later years, worked at many jobs before becoming a writer. Sterling Hayden was an actor, he was the bent cop Michael murdered in the famous restaurant scene. Being a wanderer does not mean being a lazy hobo. Come to think of it, you are a wanderer Andy. Didn't you get off the grid and start your own business, you don't rely on or work for others. You had the balls to roll the dice. A wanderer can mean many things.

    As for the biggest house, TV etc. no-one went for the American dream more than me, I had it all. The big house, his and hers matching Mercs on the drive and the country club memberships. I don't regret having been there, well I didn't until at 58 I very near croaked. The fifteen hour working days, constant travel, away from home a lot, etc. etc. Looking back I guess I had something to prove, was it to me, was it for others, who knows. I used to say it was better to be worked to death, rather than being bored to death, I still reckon that. I suppose it's all about finding a balance, but then again, I never did do balance very well. Just ask Mo.

    I started my business because I've always had an overwhelming urge to stand on the edge, look down, decide this is probly a bad idea then say fkit and jump, metaphorically, it has always served me well strangely, next time maybe not

    You might find him on YouTube or elsewhere but an old comedian from my youth, Uncle Dirty, summed up the American Dream

    "You buy what you don't need, with money you didn't earn, then sell what you never had for more than it was ever worth"
