Metq----- I know what you mean. I actually fell asleep at my computer the other day reading some of the other threads.
Just like school/work they have their clicks and when someone new or another pointed opinion voices, it's.... pssst ----- right over their head or I kill the thread . So I just talk out loud a lot and go on my merry way.




EDT ---- I got a call today from a murse at my ins co. She informed me that the Railroad Division of my ins co has a wellness program. That means a free dietician and exercise program() they take you thru. Call you one a week and follow up and discuss your goals and expectations.

got a story for ya.....

So my boys and I were leaving the grocery store yesterday. We headed to the Blazer, I walked around the drivers side and saw a lady loading her groceries into her car and she had a baby sitting in the cart. I opened the door and unlocked the other doors for the boys then went to the back and put my groceries in the Blazer. I walked back to get into Blazer and saw the woman had her stuff loaded into her car and was getting ready to take her cart back. I told her....Hey, why don't you let me take that back for you so you won't have to carry your baby back to the car. She said that i didn't have to. I told her that I know that I didn't have to, but you (she) had her hands full and it wasn't a problem for me to take the cart back. She thanked me and I headed off with the cart. When I returned, she was in the car getting her child buckled in to the car seat. She smiled and thanked me again. No problem I said. I got into the car and looked at my oldest son and thought that this could turn into a lesson for both of them. I said, "hey....did you guys see what I just did?"

This is where it gets good.....

Without missing a beat the oldest said "Yeah, you were totally diggin' on that chick!"




I said...don't tell your mother. On second thought, DO tell your mother!!!

I ended up telling her. I think that she got as big of kick out of it as I did.

I did explain to the boys that the reason I took her cart back was because she had her hands full with her child and it was the right thing to do.

so, this maybe off subject with regards to the above posts, but since we are in the gla cla room I have a question.. I am in the market of buying the mixed supplement, I am now taking 1000mg fish oil with epa/dha, is this the same as Borage oil or gla's?
which supplement name brand has the stack of gla/cla? I'm confused on what oils to get.

Hi jamistar77, I wish I had the answer to that one. it would be nice to take 1 sup with everything in it lol. I could be wrong, but I don't believe the fish oil is the same as whats in the GLA. I used to take cla & gla & fish oil. Take the fish oil a few hours seperate from the cla/gla. Hopefully someone else can jump in here and answer you better.

They aren't the same. different oils, different ingredients, different properties. All good for you, but not the same

Wouldn't it be great if a manufacturer made a Real COMBO for us!!! In a liquid form too?

the GLA is gonna be in either borage oil or evening primrose, but the latter gives people unpleasant side effects and is supposed to be not as effective for what we want.

Yes, that would be great. I hate taking pills, I just shudder and make ugly faces when I think of it. LOL just like that, lol. So the evening Primrose can be unpleasant.. I'll check with the borage oil. thanks for the info!

Your right. I just looked up somethings and the fish oil is omega 3, and the borage gla, is omega 6. Thanks for helping!

jamistar77, the primrose tends to give headaches and doesnt have as much gla as the now brand borage oil, (so less caps to take), so its the better choice. I'm doing some googling on cla stacks to see what the best mix is. I'll let you know what I find out, if anything

Hey Ms Luckiangel!!! Nice to hear from ya....I will be missing the pleasures of the Cochise County Fair this time. Will you be working it again this year? I will however be making some trips to Tucson in the future. If you find yourself out there, we should meet for a drink, a meal or something. It would be nice to see ya again!

Man, I just realized that I am taking so many different oils. Is it possible that the next time I jump in the pool I will automatically float to the top? I do give them about 3 hours in between dosages though.

Hi there, I was wanting to let you know that yesterday when I was at the store I found an omega supplement that has all three omegas in it. Omega 3,6,9! Of course right now I cant remember the name brand, but I'm going to get it today. Now omega 6 is the gla right? If so, Im very excited, the less pills I have to take the better!

check the ingredients for GAmma linoleic acid. That's what GLA is specifically.

I was reading an article in a magazine thats suggests 1200mg of the gla, so I'm going to up mine to that. That would be 5 of the Now borage oil caps a day


Hi lizzybme, start with 3400mg of cla, and up to 1200mg of gla.

The sookie books are very good ive read them all to date. Show is diffrent but goes with the story. What do you think happened to Bill in the last episode? I think I know because of the books. Yes Eric is my favorite vamp in this series of books. have you ever read the anita blake books by Laurell K Hamilton? that is my favorite book series of all time. Very adult. I have read them about 3 times each and there are 17 out right now!

No I havent, but I'm going to look for them. I love to read. I think Eric hired a thug to grab Bill. I just started the second book, so I have no clue whats going to happen lol. I was surprised by the ending on the first book, who really was dead in the car . I havent figured out who Bubba was supposed to be. They said a famous singer. Are they talking Elvis???

Yea bubba is Elvis. I hope he makes it to the screen. Love to see that. Im sure eric is behind Bill's snatching, but I think I know who is also involved but I won't say till you read club dead. The 3rd book.

The first book followed the show pretty close until the end. The second book I just started just mentions Tara like she owns a clothing store in a strip mall Bill just bought ?? I'm glad the show has her in it more than the book. I like her. I am wondering if I should continue reading the books, I may get the show mixed up with the books and be really confused
