: Ok, maybe you are right about where the people who made this page work, but when you start throwing childish, immature accusations around, maybe you better stop to think about what you are saying. You sounded pretty much like a mad 12 year old to me. And can you spell?

Perhaps we all need to think about what we are doing. I, too, found the misspelling and poor grammar a little difficult to follow. But in my heart of hearts I know that there is some very solid foundation to the basis of this site.

In the past I have usually been about 5 years ahead of my baby boomer peers in my ideas. About a year or two ago, I found myself repulsed by the whole "eating out" scene: what we eat, how often we do it, cleanliness standards or lack thereof, lack of imagination in choices, the complexity, waiting for someone else to wait on us and other intangible factors I can't even remember right now.

I have yet to break myself entirely of this nasty little socially-acceptable choice. But this site has empowered me to make a better choice more often. I'm taking responsibility for my choices and I hope this helps others to decide what's really important.

Having been somewhere else in the world beside my own country (only once), I have seen the poverty. I want to contribute to the good of the world, not the continued oppression of the poor and certainly not to the seizure of what little others have. That's what we do when we take away the homes and forests of "less our-worldly" groups of people. My thanks goes to whoever is working on this site, no matter how poorly you spell. Thanks for kicking my integrity mechanism into gear, for helping me think more logically and further afield than I would have done otherwise.
