    I don't often have a choice - I splurge on things like steak and so on time to time, especially around the holidays, but usually the basics are the same.

    when we are out cruising the islands, however, it will be lots of fish and rice and beans, and local produce. cheap and delish. oh, and rum. ;-)
    Sounds yummy!
    I wish there was decent local produce around here - but Arkansas just isn't the place to get things like that. We're such a swamp land. Too much water makes the veggies loose their flavor.

    That would be very inefficient and a huge waste.

    If they are going to provide free trainers, then it should be exclusively for the fat people.

    I think that it was the promo of some fast food restaurant that making such activities. Because they want to catch many customers. It is not bad for making that things. However, we could see those effects for our kids.

    I think the law is ridiculous. As others have states it's up to individulals and parents in the case of minors.

    McDonald's tastes so good. That's why it's a very rare treat for me.

    As a youngster when I did eat McDonald's I liked it because it's tastes good. I didn't give a rat's ass about the toys.

    Of course real burgers are better. Real anything is usually better.

    I do not understand the idea that more laws will solve problems. People taking "actual" care of their children would remedy child obesity. The problem is that people do not want to be bothered by their children so they put them in front of tv's and video games, feed them junk and are surprised when they get fat!
