Excess always dangerous- But not water if you are » Post #15

Tue Jul 09, 2019 09:46 in General Talk

Like the world, the body is made up primarily of water. Water is a hydrator and a cleanser,
inside and out.

I won't speak for other countries but America has a really very very big problem with the
way people eat. Sugar is probably the main culprit here. They put sugar in EVERYTHING.

I buy can bean soup and can vegetable soup often, especially in the cold months of the year.
The can soup has a very small amount of sugar in it but still....shouldn't be any sugar in it.

People are not getting the exercise they need. Many jobs are sedentary. On pay days
people go the grocery stores and load up on food and junk food, come home, watch
tv and eat until bed time. They mow their yards with riding mowers. The garden by
sitting down with a comfy pad under their knees.

My street has a fair amount of foot traffic from time to time. I was mowing my yard one
day in the front and a boy about high school age stopped and ask me how I like the reel
mower. Sweat was pouring off me and I laughed. A reel mower is a rotary push mower
with blades. I replied and said 'this one has 5 blades, it cuts the grass like scissors, it's
better for the lawn, it does not use gasoline, it does not use oil, it is good to sharpen the
blades once every a couple of seasons, and it's a sauna on wheels, keeps the blood flowing,
gets the muscles bulging, and works wonders to keep the fat off the axx. :lol:

I mowed yesterday and it was really too hot for me to be out there with the reel mower.
I would take short breaks. Come in and cool off, drink some water, etc and go back out
and mow some more.

At first people looked at me like I was crazy. Now they all wave, some times stop and
ask questions. Still, I think I am the only one in this town that mows their yard with a
reel mower.

People getting too lazy and too fat.

Netflix is losing ground ! » Post #11

Early on when Netflix first launched, I really liked it. I did the 3 dvd's out at a time.
That was back before rental dvd stores began closing. Mostly I would choose the dvd
to catch the newly released movies. After some years I went to the one dvd out at a
time. Finally I stopped the dvd's completely. There's really not much on Netflix that
I care to watch. I like a few of the crime documentaries when they have them. A
movie or two now and then. A couple of series. However, for the most part, I don't
subscribe to it all year long.

For me, Amazon is the best bet and I guess that is why Amazon is so popular with
the prime membership. Free ship, Movies and TV programs, Cloud for photos, etc.

Also it seems to me that Amazon has more of a selection of what I like to watch.
Netflix seems more geared to the teenage and very young adult crowd and they
don't have many old movies or classics.

I can always find something on Amazon to watch.

Yep, people started canceling their satellite and/or tv cable. Now it's become so
crazy with many separate fees for channels that some would be better off sticking
with cable.

He absolutely did say it. Maybe not exact word for word that I posted but yes he did.

I know I did not catch the entire talk but I caught it when the news guy was asking him
about dvd mailers. I think he replied that they had no intention of discontinuing it. From
there went on to talk about rising prices of their subscriptions. From there some of his
final words was 'We're not a charity' and something like 'there is basic tv.

Do a search, you actually might find it, maybe someone posted it on youtube. This
was probably around two years ago.

I watched something awhile back on tv news talk show that had the owner/ceo/president/bigshot
whomever, of Netflix. He made a comment that I didn't like and I thought he was full of himself
and a big fat snoot. :lol: He was ask about rising prices and such and he said something like
'Netflix isn't a Charity Corporation, we have to make money and if people cannot afford our low
price they will have to stick with basic tv'. Ole fat rich snoot. :mrgreen:

Oh I know, I know. I guess it has always been the way of the world.
Prices have been going up since the dawn of the ages and quality often goes down.

I think back in the 40's, 50's, especially, people were very proud to have a job in the USA.
Coming out of a depression and the war. People were proud and happy. They made products
with care and quality parts. Manufacturing was every where in the USA. Come the 70's and
you were a young man fresh out of high school or even older, you could head to Alaska and
make good money on the pipeline.

Now, cash and coins will be a thing of the past before long every where. I hope I am dead
or with my maker before the big balloon burst. I feel sorry for everybody that has to go thru
that.

Life is hard but we have to do the best we can and focus on the good and not allow ourselves
to be disrupted by the bad....if we can help it.

What do you think glucose is?

It is sugar. When a person is getting glucose, they are not getting water, they are getting syrup.

Yep, I cancel Netflix often. I plan on canceling it again at the end of this month.
They keep your info so subscribing again is nothing more than paying again.

For me, Amazon is enough.

I have Roku and they keep downloading channels but only a very few do I watch.
Yep, I have tried removing them but they just come back again. So, in a way,
Roku isn't good like it was in the beginning either.

Too much population, don't ya think?

Places to live in New York are expensive but when we say New York in the USA we
are referring to the New York, New York. Primarily the big city and near surrounding
area. I would guess that houses in New York State, is much much lower priced.

If people would stop buying, people would either stop selling and stop selling at
such an extravagant price.

I became interested in a program 'Alone'. Netflix has two seasons of it but not
any more. They drop people off alone on Vancouver Island. So beautiful.

True!!

Even manually withdrawing from a branch is nearly non-existent, Most branches are not even dealing with it anymore.


You can still withdraw from an ATM of course!, But slowly we also experience more stores that don't accept cash at all.


Very few are doing transactions the old way, So we are more and less forced to have a online-net bank (I think it's pretty intentional).

WOW! Ok thanks for that info, I did not know that.

That's a very dangerous so called 'study'. Very dangerous!

Water is of course great for you. I drink a lot of water every day. However, water is
absolutely NOT a cure all.

It depends on the bank and their plans. Lots of banks here with many different
plans. Not all banks but many do offer free checking accounts to senior citizens
and few do offer a small payment if you write limited number of checks per month.

My checking account is free since I am in the senior citizen category and I receive
an automatic $2 per month in my checking account as long as I do not write over
5 checks per month. There are a few other checking account options at my bank
but this is the one I chose. The only way I would be charged a fee is if I made
a lot of atm withdrawals or had an overdraft. Also, my first set of checks are
free and I may never need another set anyway. The $2 has nothing to do with
interest....it saves them money from processing checks.

The bank I bank at pays me $2.00 per month if I don't write over 5 checks per month.
Rarely do I write a check. I guess it saves them money in the long run not to process
checks.

That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.

I agree 100%, I guess you've been reading Revelations too :mrgreen:

As far as precursors to evil, Bitcoin is just a tiny drop in the ocean. One of the biggest precursor to evil is paperless money in all its form, and of course one day when humans will require chip implants.

Yep, that's true.
