    A guy at my Publix said they'll be expanding their organic selection of foods. Look for their Greenwise signs, I believe. I love Publix, too.

    there's almost a cult-like following!

    It's just a grocery store!

    Oh, no, it's not just a grocery store! George Jenkins is rolling in his grave right now.

    Do not mock that which you do not understand.

    Come on Darrel, it looked like you were on a roll; you can do better than that?

    Better, but you never did say how you liked that big cheeseburger just post surgery. I know if I'd been gassed out for the procedure there'd be some nausea post and I'm trying to picture how a big cheeser could seem desireable in that situation. I used to be all over the place but now lay in my bed like a big maggot and order morphine three or more times a day. My last day in hospital two weeks ago I had to force myself out of bed in the morning with my discharge scheduled for the afternoon. With all of this laziness I had a few of the doctors and some of the nurses tell me what a big sucess I was as a long-term para, having my level of ability and autonomy. Go figure.

    That's the way I am about trying to generate interest in the site any more. I can never restrain myself from telling a new gimp I meet about how great the CCC is but I've learned that they may not even bother to check us out even when they assure me that they will. "Their loss"; "different strokes", etc. and what can you do but your best to spread the gospel of CareCure and accept that it may not take.

    I've been wanting to try those Veggie Stix (though, I doubt I could ever be a vegetarian ). Have you ever tried plantain chips? I love those. I don't really like cooked plantains like you'll get with meals at Columbian or Cuban restaurants, but the chips are yummy.
