Biggest Loser Comment

Everyone has done very well, but I don't think the majority of them put out the dramatic results we've seen in previous shows...but there was some remarkable success there tonight...but what I'm really going to comment on is how VERY UNCOMFORTABLE Gillian looks in a dress and heals!? Poor thing. People sure love her but she sure doesn't have the femininity to bring to the party....all I'm saying is I need a trainer that is comforatable wearing lifting gloves and lifting heavy weights AND wears high heals...its the way I want to be so that's only natural...above all else you have to go with the trainer that fits for you...

Let's discuss

Man Finally Put In Charge Of Struggling Feminist Movement

WASHINGTON—After decades spent battling gender discrimination and inequality in the workplace, the feminist movement underwent a high-level shake-up last month, when 53-year-old management consultant Peter "Buck" McGowan took over as new chief of the worldwide initiative for women's rights.

McGowan, who now oversees the group's day-to-day operations, said he "couldn't be happier" to bring his ambition, experience, and no-nonsense attitude to his new role as the nation's top feminist.

"All the feminist movement needed to do was bring on someone who had the balls to do something about this glass ceiling business," said McGowan, who quickly closed the 23.5 percent gender wage gap by "making a few calls to the big boys upstairs." "In the world of gender identity and empowered female sexuality, it's all about who you know."

McGowan, who was selected from a pool of roughly 150 million candidates, made eliminating sexual harassment his first priority before working on securing reproductive rights for women in all 50 states, and promoting healthy body images through an influx of strong, independent female characters in TV, magazines, and film.

"It's about time," McGowan said upon returning from a golf game with several "network honchos" in which he brokered a deal to bring a variety of women's sports to prime-time television. "These ladies should have brought me on years ago."

McGowan claimed that one of the main reasons the movement enjoyed so little success in the past was that the previous management was often too timid and passive and should have been much more results-focused.

"You can't waste time pussyfooting around with protests and getting all emotional about a bunch of irrelevant details," McGowan said. "If you want to enjoy equal rights, you have to have a real man-to-man chat with the people in charge until you can hammer out some more equitable custody laws."

"And don't get me started on how disorganized and scatterbrained their old fundraising methods were," McGowan added. "Let's just say the movement never really had a head for numbers."

After McGowan successfully appointed three of his best men to lead Smith College's women's studies department and called in some favors to a number of powerful board chairmen to triple the number of female CEOs in Fortune 500 companies, analysts predicted that the feminist movement could achieve all of McGowan's goals by as early as 2009.

"With a charismatic, self-assured guy like Pete pulling the strings, we might even see a female elected president one of these days," said Nathan Roth, an analyst at the Cato Institute. "Finally, the feminist movement has a face that commands respect."

McGowan, however, said he didn't get into the business of women's rights for the praise.

"What these women were able to accomplish with the little manpower they had is very impressive," McGowan said. "I just bring a certain something to the table—I'm not sure what—that gave us that extra little push into complete female independence. I guess it just comes naturally."

But despite his modesty, McGowan continues to garner praise from those closest to the cause.

"The whole movement just seems more legitimate with Buck in charge," leading feminist Gloria Steinem said at a gala dinner Friday. "His drive, focus, and determination are truly remarkable. Mr. McGowan is a man with a plan."

Although he has not hinted at any future projects after all forms of gender discrimination are a thing of the past, McGowan has vehemently denied rumors that he will leave the feminist movement to head up the struggle for gay rights.

"The wife would kill me if I took on any more hours," McGowan said. "I'm sure those fellows know how that goes."

Seitan – A protein-rich food made from wheat gluten and used in many vegetarian dishes. Seitan’s firm texture is definitively chewy and meatlike (which is why it’s also called wheat meat), its flavor rather neutral. That mildness, however, allows seitan to be a kitchen chameleon that easily picks up flavours of the foods with which it is cooked. Available in the refrigerator section of natural food stores and Asian markets, seitan typically comes in foil – or plastic wrapped cakes that may be square or rectangular and that average about ½ inch thick. It also comes in 8-ounce plastic tubs. Check the expiration date on fresh seitan.

I have real difficulty with the name of this myself. (Seitan - pronounced SAY-tahn, so I really accent the h in tahhhn.) It is an ingredient required in a 40-40-20 recipe that is completely vegetarian.
Two Bean Seitan Chili

A friend provided other references to learn about this stuff.

Apparently seitan can be made easily enough by boiling Gluten Flour in water or flavoured broth. Still too much trouble for me as I’m not that interested in going to so much trouble to make a vegetarian recipe. The recipe was right on the box (of
Arrowhead Mills Vital Wheat Gluten) I opened today when I made Irish Brown Soda Bread

If you are struggling to find a way to get more protein in your diet without eating cottage cheese then I suggest gluten flour. It would seem that you can use it in addition to the regular flour in your recipes to bump up the protein.

You can get other balanced recipes that call for gluten flour at Go to recipes and do a search on gluten flour.

Blogger's Block

I'm having difficulty coming up with content for my blog so I am stealing ideas from forums and threads I read.

1. Do you work hard or do you take the easy way out? With respect to working out, I work pretty hard. I think I could work harder. I am scared to think of how a trainer would push me. Regarding work these days, I am bored and unchallenged. I have become complacent in my work. I like what I do but the pleasure just isn't there because of my Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde boss. I never know who I'm dealing with. My boss if female so that only adds to the complication and misery. As to 'taking the easy way out' I'm all for streamlining and efficiency without sacrifice for the finished product.

2. How's your day going? Boring. But I did clean my desk up at work. I have 3 IN trays and I had shit in there from 2003. I hold on to things because 'you just never know' and then there comes a point in time that the shit is meaningless now, don't know what its for or it doesn't apply any more and it can just be turfed. That is a great feeling and it is great looking over at my in tray and it is tidy and it's contents current.

3. How many pairs of shoes do you own? 10 maybe. Only 3 in regular rotation.

4. Do you consider yourself cool? Sure I do. But its all relative. There are a lot of losers out there. (My 12 year old son thinks I’m cool because I used 'k' instead of typing Okay in MSN messenger the other day.)

5. What's the last song you listened to? "One Gun" by 54-40 on

More drivel:

Enjoy your coffee

A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old university professor. Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life. Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups - porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal,
some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite - telling them to
help themselves to the coffee.

When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor
said: "If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken up,
leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is but normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your
problems and stress. Be assured that the cup itself, adds no quality
to the coffee in most cases, just more expense and in some cases iteven hides what we drink.

What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you
consciously went for the best cups... And then began eyeing each
other's cups. “Now consider this: Life is the coffee, and the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and
contain Life, and the type of cup we have does not define, nor change
the quality of Life we live. Sometimes, by concentrating only on the
cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee God has provided us."

God brews the coffee, not the cups..........enjoy your coffee.
