    I'm watching the Twinkie thing, and the union that use to work there-I had a question: What stops a business with a unionized workforce from dissolving itself, lose its unionized workforce- and then come “back” again with the same product…. but without a unionized workforce. I know it’s not the same thing with Hostess- and if you put aside the financial loss the owner of the business would take by shutting down and coming back up again-are there laws in place to prevent this? I would assume there would have to be or more businesses would do it.

    Passive voice is my worse deficit, but I am not getting it. Please take this sentence: “ I think that not enough has been done to explore the benefits of certain treatments because of the stigma they possess. “ I know this is in passive voice, and I need to get rid of "has been" but for the life of me, I can't figure out how to rearrange it. Online instructions are Greek to me. They also use shorter sentences as examples, which do not help me with longer sentences. I can figure things out better if I am allowed to take them apart and work backwards. If you could please restructure this one sentence in the active voice, I would appreciate it.

In this game, it's not how much you know about a subject, it's how much you know about people, and what they think about a subject.

Yesterday morning I woke up to one of my back muscles in a knot (must have slept wrong-It's still killing me. ) so I took two 5 mg valums. Today I am advised that I was offered a new job, and I have to take a urine test ASAP. People around me say I should be ok, since the prescription was in my name, I should declare it and be ok. Will I get in trouble for taking prescribed valum for an ailment that I didn’t go to the doctor for, in particular? If so, is there a way I should handle it, or am I stressing over nothing? I have no idea how sensitive employers are about this. Right now, my back hurts, and I’m afraid to take anything for it.

    My mother is in her 70's, and I am trying to send her some good audio books. I personally am not a mystery fan, and know little about any good mysteries or mystery series that are out there. An example of what she likes is: "The cat who" series Agatha Christie books Dean Koontz Sex is ok, as long as it's point is to further the story, not to sell soft porn. blood and gore is ok- again, only for the same reasons. She's a sucker for late 1700/1800/ early 1900 British situational stuff see ""Downton Abbey", or Charles Dickens, but it doesn't have to be this. An example of what would NOT be ok is the "southern vampire mysteries" They are so poorly written, and it's sole point is to have graphic sex scenes surrounded by moronic plot development. If it's fairly new- within the last couple of years, if I am lucky, she hasn't read it, but she's a voracious reader. Anything you suggest, I will look up, read reviews, and base my decision on that. Thank you.

It really doesn’t serve any purpose other then the gratification of the person who does it. Why are they gratified from it?

If they have to resort to Yahoo answers to troll, my assumption is that they must feel pretty bad in the real world and their day to day life. Is there any documentation on the psychology of trolling?

    Peaches are grown in my area, and I have to move fast before the harvest ends. I want to make peach wine from the area fruit. I have made my very first batch of wine already- tea and apple. I have learned some things during to this process. I knew nothing about what “body” meant, but I read the raisins would give the tea and apple wine this body. The recipe called for raisins, but as I was adding the raisins, the smell was appalling to me. I had to make a decision- continue on and trust the recipe, or fish them out. I fished them out. The end result was that the wine was too light; it was all alcohol, and nothing to hold it. My goodness! The concept of “body” in wine was much like the physical aspect of body and soul. WOW, how apt. Ok- lesson learned. I see how a good body is necessary. Also, the wine did not taste like either tea or apple! I thought- ok- had I left the raisons in there, would they still take like raisins now? I don’t want a raisin taste in the wine, but it needs body. I have read that peaches don’t have a good body on their own, and need something else. I would like this wine to taste more like peach, and less like something else. To accomplish this- should I use bananas or raisons, or grape juice to give the wine body? Which would make it taste more like peach, and less like something else?

I like: Stargate SG1, Stargate Atlantis, Eureka, Haven,Warehouse 13- Its all good. I started watching Sanctuary on Netflix, and although the 1st episode was slow, I went through it- it's just the pilot, they have to introduce characters- acceptable to be slow. When I watched episode 2, I was actually a little angry at whoever put this show together- what a waste of actors and fan base. The flashback sequence of her enemy/lover being Jack the ripper.. his wig looked like roadkill glued to the top of his head, the prostitute looked like a ren-fair reject in a leather red corset (I just burst out laughing when I saw her wardrobe). I run on the treadmill- the only thing that has worked for me exercise-wise is running on the treadmill to movies or TV series. I know I will stop exercising if I don't' have something to watch. All the series I mentioned up top were GREAT running-fodder. I need more. I also wll end up cutting my exercise short if what I am watching is complete crap. I have to know that it's going to be good stuff before I start, Did this series ever get any better after those episodes.. should I give it another try? I ran out of stuff to run to.

    First time brewing wine. I read : Sulfur smell=Bad Vinegar smell=Bad What should the yeast C02 smell like? The must as been 5 days in it’s primary fermentation vessel (bucket and lid with air trap) The first days it smelt nasty, I had to air out the room, but then it really took off. The air bubbles came out more than one bubble a second. You put your ear to the bucket, it sounded like static. The yeast seemed very happy. Now, it’s slowed down to about a little less than half of the bubbles it had before, and the smell has changed to a clean alcohol smell. This is all normal, right? Does the clean smell indicate it’s time to transfer to the carboy? I read what it shouldn’t smell like- but what SHOULD it smell like? Should I add more nutrients when I do rack it?

Tonight, I went into my back yard to get some mint, and I scared an opossum that had crammed its self between my oregano and my mint pots. I did have pots of catnip out there... but something was decimating it (gobbing it up) so I moved the pots inside. I assumed the neighborhood cats found the pots. Now I am wondering if the opossum was the one eating the catnip. Do Opossums like oregano, mint or catnip? If they like mint, they would certainly like the catnip. The mint pots are recent, so I doubt it would have had a chance to eat them yet.
