This past weekend, the boyfriend and I were hoping to pick berries. That did not happen as the berry farm closed down early due to too much rain this summer. Acting on instinct, he turned his vehicle east toward Milwaukee and decided we should go to the Milwaukee Art Museum. It was SPECTACULAR!
Now, Grubster, being an O, isn't very good at avoiding bread. In fact, we went to Atlanta Bread Company and bought a loaf of baguette. We ate this on the road trip along with buttah. Needless to say, all that white bread is wreaking havoc on my gut.
I tried his chicken earlier last week. He added so many ingredients that I can't even remember all he added. The kelp was surprisingly tasty in the mix. I've never seen someone use a crock pot as much as he does.
OK, back to the art museum. If you ever come to the Midwest, this is would be a great stop. The museum is located right on Lake Michigan. It's just gorgeous. The art is nice. Mostly, I enoyed the feature artist who paints nature scenes of Northern Wisconsin. I'll have to find out his name again....otherwise, if you are interested, you should check out the webpage...
I just finished after many long car rides listening to the DaVinci Code. There really is something about Mary......Magdalene. At Barnes and Noble, I've seen a lot of books to dispute the author's conspiracy theory. Everyone wants to know what is truth and what is legend. How woman has become "evil" when female energy used to be just that...female, not evil.
I think if I lived five hundred years ago, I'd be considered a witch. I'd be burned. I've always been extremely interested in new age stuff. Instead, I'm just stuck in a pharmgirl land in the 21st Century.
Really, not all that interested in food as a topic today, but more interested in thinking about herbs. I picked up an interesting book on herbs for women. I find it strange that every election year, there is all this talk on abortion in the political ring. All these doctors being killed. What I find fascinating is that all you have to do to have an abortion is give yourself the right herbs. I don't want to talk about whether it's legal or even moral, but that anything you need to know is right there in the bookstore!!!! I mean, really, it's simplier than that. Ever read HAMLET?? There are many theories surrounding Ophelia's monologue where she mentions a few herbs that act as emenogogues. Some critics believe she was pregnant.
The same book also talks about how to save a potential miscarriage. How to curb PMS, how to support your pregnancy with the right herbs, and how to cure diaper rash on your baby. I can't say I'd ever take abortificent drugs myself based on my own belief system that life is precious. But I wouldn't tell others what to do with their bodies and lives except hope that they choose life. OK, I really need to quit watching CNN.
Herbs, chemicals, drugs, whatever category you put these structures into, I'm amazed (and that's why I became a pharmacist in the first place) that it only takes a few milligrams or even micrograms of a substance to create life (clomid, etc.) or destroy life (poisons) or prevent life (in the case of birth control).
Even with what I do know after all these years, I'm still amazed. I take seriously the power of chemicals. I treat them with respect. Despite the entanglements of (mis)managed care. That's all for now....
