Topics I've Started


11 July 2019 - 11:22 PM

We have the Snake Diet thread, but otherwise not much on Keto. Has anyone else tried it? Kind of a more reasoned version of Atkins.

Full disclosure, I’ve been on it for six or seven weeks, and it’s been incredibly easy, effective, and also informative about the whole hunger thing.

I can readily imagine (and describe) people who wouldn’t find it easy. In code (per Plotnicki) easy for French eaters, hard for Italian.

And related to the last point, pretty easy to follow in the kinds of restaurants I like to go to (piece of meat or fish artfully arranged on plate, simple garnish).

FIFA Women's World Cup 2019

A bit late, but has anyone else been enjoying this?  The quality of play is so high, and the last two USA games have been nail-biters.

The iconic British satirical magazine Private Eye goes through editors like The New Yorker in its heyday. Two editors in the last 56 years. But it was co-founded and edited - for its first year only - by Booker. He subsequently wrote many books which were controversial, not to say wrong.

Reporter and...character.

Chicago 2019

I may have up to four dinner opportunities in Chicago in June, although the number will probably dwindle.  I liked The Girl and the Goat last year.  Any suggestions welcome.  Preferably within reach of downtown, although now I've succumbed to Uber/Lyft that's a larger radius than it used to be.
