The sun is trying to come out today and I plan on going out into the teeny garden tomorrow and planting BEETS!
Lately I've been reading a lot of things about the health benefits of beets.

What do you think?

I know that they get sugar out of beets, so I was wondering if they are off limits to diabetics ... anyone know?

BTW I love Borscht.

Aren't sugar beets a different species of beet from the ones commonly available in markets?

I almost never read anything in Politics and Other Controversies because the amount of extremism there is not good for my blood pressure. But the title of a thread by a radical feminist caught my eye. This OP has openly stated in the past that men are the enemy. Well, in this thread someone posted a brief UTube clip of a radical feminist (presumably not the OP) explaining that all the men and boys simply have to be killed. Yes, shot down in the street. It was quite short and there was no detailed plan of action presented - just the statement, calmly made, that's that what needs to happen.

Just when I thought I knew what extremism was, along comes something like that!

I once met a woman who hated men & in talking to her (not for long, thank you), all I could think of was my 5 wonderful brothers & my beloved son.

How sad that other women don't have those wonderful memories.

There are extremists of stripes, colors, and persuasions.


I am shocked and heartbroken about the deadly attack on two Coptic churches in Egypt.


How can any sane person plan such an attack on innocent worshippers?

That makes me sick too. It's bad enough to be a Christian in non Christian country, but to be slaughtered in the one place where they should feel very safe!

Oh--as for your question about beets. They're supposed to be good for the liver but I don't know nutrition-wise beyond that. They are sweet, like carrots are sweet but that doesn't equate to eating very much sugar, I don't think. They grow best in alkaline/non acidic soil aka "sweet soil." And there my beet knowledge ends.

I bolded the words, in particular "sane", as being the answer to the question.

I'm not educated in it, not an engineer, etc. So I'm not really qualified to have a conversation about it. But I do admire some of it. Whenever I went to TX to visit my son, my ride to his home took me through Dallas and some of the buildings were interesting to see. There are some homes/mansions that are beautiful to look at. Sometimes when I see tall buildings and how they are put together I marvel at the workmanship that went into them. The molding alone is amazing.

So yes, to answer your question, I do like architecture.

DH and I aren't sophisticated in matters of architecture. But like theater, and music, we certainly appreciate it.
