Fact:  Atkins smiled.
Fact:  Atkins died.
Fact:  Smiling kills you.

Living is hazardous to your health.  What's important is how good and fit you look in your coffin.

Liza, do you like crinkle cut or regular chips?  I prefer crinkles, or Frito's Scoops. 8) 8)

Hey ! I just noticed I passed 9,000 posts !

Here is a picture of Dr. Robert Atkins:





Are those tomatoes in the pan?  Tomatoes have carbs?  He's gonna mess up the diet.

Fact: Atkins ate carbs.
Fact: Atkins died.
Fact: Carbs kill you.

He slipped on the ice and broke his head open and died.

The Atkins Diet is not no carbs diet ( there is no such thing)
It encourages eating lots of vegetables and some fruit low on the Glicemitc index ( low sugar).

BTW..Correlation does not prove casuation  :)
Your idea has been debunked 1000 times already.. Maybe 1001 will be the charm

What? Low carbs cause increased instability on ice?!?!?!  I don't think that was listed as a disclaimer on the Adkins diet book...

It all makes sense now.  It causes the ice itself to be unstable!  Low carbs are responsible for icecaps breaking apart and global warming which is destroying the Eskimos way of life.  I had no idea Dr. Adkins was so nefarious.

...and for my 8,000th post I bring you an odd photo I took a few weeks back.

What do you think it might be?



....and....

I couldn't resist to share a photo of an Orthodox Wedding from the late 1950's.

My mom is the maid of honor, holding the crown over the bride.

Earlier on this thread I officially retired from actively commemorating posting milestones.

Since that time, a year and a half ago, I've made about 10,000 posts.

Which is shocking. Have I really averaged about 18 posters per day over the last year and a half?

Anyway, I meant to come out of retirement to commemorate my 24,000th post, but I forgot to do so and ended up zooming right past it.

Maybe I'll remember at 25k and post some pics then.

I should get there by November.  :angel:

We could all pool the money together to get him a year's worth of supplies.

I thought I would never see this milestone and here is post 9,500.

Even 10,000 posts is a reasonable goal in the coming months.

The next level is 11,000 posts; I don't know if I'll see that goal as long as I feel happy on this board and my posts per day average continues to decrease.   :)

....and for my 10,000th post....(I remember being amazed that I had 300 posts, at one time).

....I bring you what is most near and dear to my heart....all the people I value and love (minus a few who are missing from the photo, whom I love very much).

May God grant them all many, happy and blessed years!!!!



Nice!!

LOL!  I'm behind the camera!!!  ;D
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Beautiful group shot in the church. And the dinner too.  :angel:
My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river
