It's funny - he is politically liberal, but when it comes to drum corps, he's pretty conservative / traditional. I miss that side of him.


Kimberly, I can't tell you how impressed I am with that comment. SHJ has been more inappropriately mean-spirited to you than to almost any other poster, and yet you have something nice to say about him. Thanks for restoring a small chunk of my faith in the character and generosity of our little community.

To everybody else, let this thread remind us that personal attacks and vitriol have very tangible consequences to the health of this message board. Let's keep it civil and remember to respect each other's opinions. We don't have to agree, but when we disagree, let's be nice about it. As every musician knows, the tone quality can be more important than the notes being played.

(And I apologize if I have blatted out too much in the past...)

Hello.

The first half of this year has seen quite a few changes in my life, not the least of which were the wedding (April 8th, 2006) and honeymoon a few of you mentioned (more on that here). Needless to say, that was pretty much all I was concentrating on the first third of this year.

Suffice to say that 2006 has seen me become generally less interested in the internet as a whole; it just doesn't hold my attention like it used to. I was expecting my desire to surf the web to rebound after all the festivities in April, but it hasn't. I guess the web is sort of like a drug: once you've weaned yourself off of it, you find out you don't really need it any more. My "favorites" list has been whittled down from 26 to 7, and I've gone from spending 4-5 hours a day online (each day, every day) and posting on 8-10 different forums (musical, political, and everything else) to now logging on only 2-3 times per week to check on one or two forums.

So yes, I'm back, but I'm expecting to pretty much be an "on-season" poster, meaning I'll likely disappear again come September or October. And, since I've come back FOR drum corps season to talk DRUM CORPS, I don't anticipate I'll be seen much (if at all) outside General Drum Corps Discussions. *waits for applause to die down*

:cool:

Thanks. I have told him this in PMs.

You know, there are difficult people everywhere. I try not to let them get to me, because a lot of it stems from their insecurities. It makes life difficult at times, but I look better when I rise above it all. Ya know?


Here's a freebie - put a grapefruit, ripe banana, and some ice in a blender and blend until the ice is chopped up. YUM! I know because I just finished drinking one.

I put bananas with Splenda, some strawberries, a dash of Vanilla extract, ice, 1% or Skim milk in a blender. Makes a great shake for my kids!

1/8 cup flax oil(roughly one coffee cup scoop)
1/8+ cup of natural vanilla whey
1 cup unsweentened cranberry juice
1 cup of assorted frozen fruit(I'm partial to strawberries)

Mix in a blender. Makes two big tumblers of smoothie. Very yummy, and I almost feel virtuous eating such healthy food!

I never tried that. Maybe I will.

Tried the kashi protein powder and I couldn't stand the consistency so I substituted a banana instead.

I had a caramel frappucino from Starbucks today. Heh.

That probably cancels out the good from the smoothies. :lol:

Yup, but you're no worse than even, right?

When I hit Starbucks, I go for the sugar-free Hazalenut Latte with low-fat milk. Add a touch of Splenda and I'm good to go...and relatively guilt free...


After all, caffiene makes me a better person... :twisted:

Today I added several sprigs (5 or 6) of parsley to the grapefruit and banana combo. The parsley took it from a fruit smoothie to a parsley with a tiny hint of grapefruit smoothie.

I'm eating a ton of raw foods these days, very little cooked, and greens are really good for us, so I'm not too sad that my yummy smoothie blend was hijacked by parsley. Will throw in some spinach later.

I've been drinking this one a lot recently:

1 apple
1 big kiwi or 2 small kiwis (fruit, not people from New Zealand)
2 bananas
handful of frozen strawberries
ice
water

who knew we were a bunch of blender fanatics!!
