What's not to love with pork, pork fat, lotsa of salt, herbs and spices..... Maybe you can ship some over to me.....
I hate foodie as much as the next person but it's the quickest way to describe a person that enjoys what good food supposed to be. I still think that a fat person cannot be a person who enjoys good food because there is only one way to get fat and that is eating too much. Unless the person has diabetes of course but that could also mean a person who has over-indulguled. Also I think there is a lot of people out there who think they know food when they don't.
Yes, I know it's not pc but it's something I believe. I don't think anyone that is fat can consider himself/herself a foodie no matter how supposedly good their taste are....
Agree or disagree.... I want un-pc answers!

That work sometimes but other times trying to understand will not work because some people are just the way you are. No matter how hard you try to understand, you will never get to a reason that is...

Forgiveness is one of those things I believe everyone needs to learn and use. If someone wronged you intentional or not, it will hurt you more in the long run if you were to hold on to these things. Forgiveness is IMHO one of the toughest things to learn in life because no one likes to feel hurt, used, etc. I agree for the most part that women hold on to grudges more then men but I have met men that are just as bad or even worse with holding grudges. The amount of time...
