Re: Eat your way to happiness!

I am eating well* and I am happy. Chicken and egg? I avoid both. :smile: Fresh fruit, fresh green veggies, fresh air, sunshine and moderate exercise. You can't go so very wrong this way... Best wishes, Su Dongpo *I have an ongoing addiction to Diet/Coke Zero, but other than that... :thinking:

Re: Sports craze in San Francisco

Not very sprortsman like for Philadelphia to make threats to the Giants just because they were behind (although it does show alot of courage to threaten a team of giants!!!)!!! But I guess that in a game called base ball one should expect such baseness. chownah I know, I have in times past been thr...

Re: Sports craze in San Francisco

The SF Sangha ("Giants") wins Game 1!!! :clap: The lowly Giants pushed the previously untouchable Cliff Lee, well, off the cliff before the 5th inning (or so I hear). I only got to see the a bit of the game after Uribe broke the game open with that three-run blast. I am 10,000 kilometers away, but t...

Re: Sports craze in San Francisco

It was an exciting series. The San Francisco Giants beat a stronger Philadelphia team in six games, the last win coming in Philadelphia. The score was tied, 2-2, until late in the game (8th inning) when Juan Uribe hit an opposite-field home-run into the right field stands. Philadelphia threatened in...

Re: Life Sux

The conclusion to this thought goes some like this:

Things are bad (Life Sux),
And they're going to get worse --
Before they end.

That's me, not a quotation, but I think the sentiment is closer to that of Sartre than Buddha.

Re: E-sangha news

They should simply cut their losses and start from scratch or just scratch e-sangha off. We can then hold a memorial service. I don't know any more about the problem than I've read in this thread, but I don't see why e-sangha should be abandoned permanently. Perhaps the database of old postings wil...

So false. She didn't realize anything, she was just an actress reading the lines in the script. Or are you feeling empathy for a figment of someone's imagination? You are assuming, methinks, that the imagination, and in this case an imagined persona, is less real than material reality and "real" pe...

Hi David,

The avatar problem may be a separate issue. Leo posted a message about ten days ago explaining that that function wasn't working and that he does not have time at the moment to fix it.
