@StellaCadente best of luck to you! Do what ever helps in your case. I just felt that there should some scientific information to balance all the claims made in that thecandidadiet link.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Candida_(fungus)#Alternative_medicine_therapies No studies have proved that having intestinal candidiasis causes any symptoms of illness. To treat what they refer to as Candida, some alternative medicine practitioners have recommended avoiding antibiotics, birth control pills, and foods that are high in sugar or yeast, ostensibly to "eliminate excess yeast" in the body. However, there is little clinically valid evidence that these "candida cleanse" treatments treat intestinal candidiasis effectively, or cure any of the symptoms claimed by the proponents of the hypothesis.

If you have a lot of stale bread, you can make German Bread Dumplings (Semmelknödel), which are delicious with Goulash, Mushroom gravy or roasts. Quick recipe: 1 lb of stale bread, cubed 1/2 cup of warm milk 1 onion, finely chopped 2 tbsp butter 2 eggs 2 tbsp parsley 1/2 tsp marjoram Salt, pepper, nutmeg to taste Saute onions in butter, add to bread cubes and pour warm milk over the mixture; let stand covered for 20min. Add rest of ingredients and form baseball-sized dumplings with wet hands. Add into large pot of boiling, salted water and let steep for 20min, just below simmering. Guten Appetit! :)

Same thing happened to me at Kress Supermarket. I was there with my 3-year old on the weekend. He needed to pee and that usually doesn't give you a lot of time to find a bathroom. The employee in the store claims they don't have a bathroom. Next time I come back, I notice a customer asking for the bathroom and being led right to it! That was the last time I shopped there. And the way I read this law, they would have had to let you use their bathroom: http://consumerist.com/2009/05/washington-state-says-stores-have-to-let-you-use-the-bathroom.html

We usually buy Plain Mountain High Yoghurt http://fresh.amazon.com/product?asin=B000R4CJA8 and mix it with our own fruit/apple sauce/jam. Sometimes (=when they are on sale), we get Safeway's O Organics Yogurts.

Sounds great! How exactly can you be "taking care not to crush the kiwifruit seeds"?

I agree with this review. Got this as a gift - lots of fun and delicious ice cream, but used it once...

As far as I know, the buses have transponders and at fixed checkpoints the system can track the number of the bus that just passed. But as soon as one bus is very late (or early) or leaves the planned route this system is very ineffective, which became apparent in the recent snow days. I'm hoping the GPS upgrade will make this a lot more reliable and should also help in the snow chaos scenario.

Seattle Buses do not have GPS...yet. It is a planned update for 2010 http://westseattleblog.com/blog/?p=13162 Stephen, OneBusAway rocks! But all available applications use the same data, which becomes very unreliable, if the buses deviate from their route in bad weather.

Regarding kSolo.com: I'm trying to build a little community for kSolo.com. I'm hoping if enough people speak together we can get them put in some hard-missed features. Please, contribute at kSolo.marcofrom.com Thanks, Marco
