Thank you for you generous information. There is so much valuable information here to choose from. Some of it I have already adopted. 2% milk, wheat (not white) flour/bread, olive oil and Splenda are family staples. Others I will consider incorporating.
We seldom eat red meat (though some times a man’s just GOT to devour some steak or his scrotum might shrivel up and disappear). And we almost never eat pork. Fish, chicken and turkey are flesh of choice. You’d be shocked by how good I can make turkey burgers and bacon taste.
But we still drink WAY more soda than we should.
You make some valid and persuasive points about how Moonsigns has done what she accused A_womon. It reminds of something I recently said to Yukio that he took exception to. We all to varying degrees/circumstance generalize/stereotype. And that makes for conveniently lazy, unimaginative thinking. So as we accuse others of such, we should be mindful that it is likely that still others may see that glowering demon emanating from within us as well.
And I would likely concur that Aretha Franklin is the "best singer in the history of recorded music". Calling her simply the "Queen of Soul" is is far to restrictive a moniker to tab her with. She's the reigning monarch of ALL American music.
Although I think Chaka Khan, Barbra Streisand and Ella Fitzgerald could share the stage with her. I am hard-pressed to recall a single male that I would consider to be in Aretha’s class, other than Ray Charles (and maybe Pavoratti).
I will pray that your daughter gets all the help she needs to grow into a wonderfully bright and healthy woman. My departed friend also was heavy when he was a young child, although he lacked the support system that you obviously have attempted to provide for your daughter. I think Miss_wysteria advice seems quite useful here. The key is to try to help her in a more holistic manner or in ways that are natural, less drastic and emotionally/physically damaging. I think had my friend gotten the help/love that you are giving your child, perhaps he might be still here today.
