Unanswered Questions

He was an agent for health coverage for a company older than time itself. She questioned it in the back of her mind. How was that possible? How could that be?

She'd always considered her life to be the normal boring. Nothing too exciting and certainly not a man who had not aged in centuries. Sure, maybe in the movies, but lets face it, this was real life!

Now here she stood outside of the agency, wondering just how many others were like him? Where did they come from? Why choose a health insurance company as their cover? There were so many questions she needed answered and now she was about to find those answers out.

Growing My Own in Kansas

I'm all for homegrown foods. In fact, I'm so much for them that I decided to save the Jalepeno and Bell Pepper seeds from produce I bought from our local farmer's market and start some potted plants of my own.

Now anyone that really knows me, knows that I really do not have a green thumb. I make major mistakes like starting my seeds too late in the seasons,planting them in really small pots, not giving them sunlight and forgetting to water my plants.

Well this year somehow, I got damn lucky! And yes, as you can see from the photos, the peppers are small, but by gholly they are growing and that makes this Insane Writer extremely excited!

Next project: Growing herbs indoors for all year round!

Okios Advertises False Hope to Customers Looking For Real Fruit

So you know the new commercials with actor John Stamos for Okios Greek yogurt? Well, I hope he knows he's promoting a yogurt that doesn't even have real fruit on the bottom like they advertise. No sirie. What you get is a jelly with the seeds of your favorite fruit.

How's that real, folk? Can you explain please. I would rather buy plain Greek yogurt from another brand and add my own real fruit.

Please, if you are going to say your product contains real fruit, don't bullshit us. We are not idiots. Thank You!

The Glorious Wonder of Homemade

When it comes to real food, I'd much rather have homemade that way I know exactly what is going in my body. I'm in charge of the ingredients and I love that!

One of the most saught after fake foods that people don't seem to mind is fake butter (You know that margarine crap). It's cheap at $2 to $3 a tub and people don't mind man made ingredients, because real food is costly, plus they are addicted to fake ingredients that we were not meant to digest. Sad, but true I'm afraid.

Well, lately I've been trying to eliminate processed foods as much as possible. One step at a time is always the best way to go about it, it seems.

So, to make a long story short, I got bored one day and had no real plans for the whipping cream I got, so I made butter. Let me tell you ladies and gentleman, it was the best 1. 89 I've ever bought and so ridiculously easy to make!

Simply pour whipping cream into a food processor, turn it on, and in a few minutes you have wonderful real butter! Yummmmoooo!!!!
