Thanks Dee. It does. I guess I just relate to the feeling of surrealness when it's happening, like being trapped in a nightmare awake - an alternative world you can't escape from. Horrible, I really felt for the Parisians.
I have been in Israel when bombs were falling, and I have been detained and questioned because my Hebrew was too good and they didn't think I looked Jewish...all because of these maniacs who inflict terror.

The pictures today of all of the tributes are heartbreaking. So much love and so much pain. We can only pray that some good comes from this, and that the 352 injured people can survive and heal.

And yes, our AVs are so sneaky....why don't we all make a pact to come here BEFORE we pick up a drink...I know I am very blessed to have Snooz just a phonecall away, but we are all here for each other...just yell out, and someone will be here to help.

Sorry, this weekend's events have made me extra sensitive and soppy.

Sorry Wolfy...you did ask about links to cut down on sugar. I've done a lot of different things for over a year now.

I did a Whole 30 originally, which is 30 days of no wheat, dairy, sugar, preservatives. Basically good, real food. After 30 days, I had no desire for sugar at all. It's soooooo addictive and added to so many things in our diet. I then saw a doco on high fructose corn syrup, which is in everything! Ice cream, chocolates etc. and that is one scary chemical. People think it's safe because it's "corn" but it's so modified, uggh. I then realised that even popcorn made me crave sweets, sugar/high fructose corn syrup.

Night SW. Going to bed soon here too. My daughter seems better, thank goodness. I hate when the little ones are sick. Makes you appreciate the days when everyone is healthy. Have a good night/Sunday everyone!

Hey Wolfy, I remember we actually did a thread which chronicles what we did and ate for the 30 days. You will get meal ideas etc. there. Forgot about that thread! It's something you do have to prepare for, or at least be committed to doing. It's not for everyone.

Hi everyoneeeeee

I've just finished my Sunday shift & ready for home. Have a few minutes to kill so thought I'd pop in and say hi

I love it that this thread has been busy. I'm glad you are a Julyer now Venus . It's lovely to see you in here each day :-)
I don't know if anything else has happened in Paris , I'm like V :/ it's too depressing & these events really upset me.

I used to drink so I didn't think about what a shittty world we live in at times.

But it can also be a good place with good people.
I'm pretty confident that the good people outweigh the bad.

Just look in this room:-) we rock !
