Too much time spent on here-I just made my 15,000th post.
At least it was about the nationwide food drive instead of the usual crap I post!

9. Well hey, the guys of NIN are pretty impressed!


Especially after they were mocking me for my petty 2000-post milestone yesterday...something about not learning to waste time in the proper DU manner. :P

show me how impressed he is.

I'd share any worthwhile pics afterward!

Maybe the sun-shine over here has turned me into a floozy.

34. IIRC you made 10,000
just before I made 5,000 and now here you are at 15,000 before I get to 8,000. Must be some advantage to starting threads that lots of people reply to and replying back to them.

40. I like parsley too.
When brewed and drank as a tea it can alleviate allergy/hayfever symptoms. Some studies have also shown that eating a fresh sprig of parsley may reduce the amount of sweat produced by 50% over a 2-3 hour time period.

And thank you for the congrats.

42. Aye, but if the parsley studies are not double blind peer review,
they are not worth buying as anything more than food.

IMO.

45. It's always worth a shot.
I can testify that the parsley tea has helped my hayfever. I've been taking it, along w/ a dose of locally produced honey, for the past month(honey every day, parsley tea when symptoms first appear) and have yet to even need a Benadryl. In the past I've been on prescriptions, sneezed myself into nosebleeds and have my eyes become so irritated that I had to get a prescription for eye drops d/t pink eye.

It's worth a shot, compared to the price of a prescription that will make me drowsy and unable to stay awake all night.

49. I see, sure, if not taking also involves buying something then sure.
And as for what you do in your home, lots of stuff is fair.

Do you live near a city?

50. An hour away.
Farming community w/ lots of pollen.

Dried parsley costs very little and soon I will have some fresh in my garden. Buying my honey locally helps out my local producers.

And it's much cheaper than the over $100 a month I was spending on prescriptions.
