I'm just trying to minimize the craving and NOT GRAZE/MUNCH/EAT.  It's gonna suck for a bit, but I'm tough.  That's it.  If I can get the craving a bit more manageable, it'll be a cake walk.

So many people I know who've quit have put on a lot of weight because they substituted eating for smoking. Try getting a plastic straw and chew on it. Or get a toothpick to keep in your mouth. If you can keep chewing on something that you can't eat, it really does help with the cravings, and also I've heard that drinking a big glass of water helps too. Actually, water helps flush the nicotene out of our system a bit more quickly. Of course, that'll probably make you pee more, and when you stop at those truck stops to pee, you'll be tempted to buy a pack of smokes.

Hahaha on your "garden plants" Lowe! The purslane is actually edible! There's more of that growing in our garden than anything we actually planted.

oldguy, veggie gardens (and flower gardens) take constant maintenance. To help prevent the weeds from taking over, why don't you go to Walmart and get a lot of boxes. If you lay them flat in the rows next to your plants, and then cover them with some mowed grass, or even weeds you pulled, it will keep the moisture in, keep weeds OUT, and by next year it will pretty much be compost!

Between yesterday and today I went through SIX tanks of gas on my weedwhacker. Tomorrow we will both be on our mowers for about 3 or 4 hours each. We have also cleared out so much brush with chainsaw and loppers that we filled a large trailer hauled by the four wheeler, three times!

But for us, we love being outside. It's constant work around here to keep the yard and gardens looking nice, but what's the alternative? Sitting inside in front of a TV or on a computer all day? We simply couldn't do that. We are not even inside the house more than 10 minutes from the time the dew dries in the morning until the sun sets in the evening. I've already lost 5 pounds since it started getting warm enough to be outside, and I haven't changed my eating habits one bit. Constant motion, plus not putting snacks in my mouth because they aren't in reach, is the magic bullet.

The only drawback is how horrible my hands look. Cracks with ground in dirt all over my fingers. They are embarassing to look at. They won't look better till November.

I'm having a great year. I planted eastern black nightshade, common mallow, lamb's quarters, quackgrass, and purslane. I'm going to have the best year ever.

General Discussion / NYT Lists 'Trump's Lies'

                                                        NYT Lists 'Trump's Lies'



The New York Times has compiled a massive list called "Trump's Lies," in what they say catalogues "nearly every outright lie" President Trump has made since his January inauguration.

The Times's list, which ran in the paper's opinion section, including his inaccurate claim that there was a terror attack in Sweden last February and his recent incorrect statement that the Paris Agreement isn't non-binding. The list also includes Trump's claim that he has been on the cover of Time magazine more than any other person — a distinction actually held by former President Nixon.

The Times feature says that Trump made "public lies or falsehoods" every day during his first 40 days in office.

Trump has often called the paper “the failing New York Times.”

The list comes just one day after Trump tweeted that he did not record his past conversations with former FBI Director James Comey, after implying for more than 40 days that the tapes existed.

Many Americans have become accustomed to President Trump’s lies. But as regular as they have become, the country should not allow itself to become numb to them. So we have catalogued nearly every outright lie he has told publicly since taking the oath of office.

                                                                       All the President’s Lies

      *Trump told a public lie                                                                                                                            *Didn't tell a public lie



President Trump’s political rise was built on a lie (about Barack Obama's birthplace). His lack of truthfulness has also become central to the Russia investigation, with James Comey, the former director of the F.B.I., testifying under oath about Trump's “lies, plain and simple.”

There is simply no precedent for an American president to spend so much time telling untruths. Every president has shaded the truth or told occasional whoppers. No other president — of either party — has behaved as Trump is behaving. He is trying to create an atmosphere in which reality is irrelevant.

We have set a conservative standard here, leaving out many dubious statements (like the claim that his travel ban is “similar” to Obama administration policy). Some people may still take issue with this standard, arguing that the president wasn't speaking literally. But we believe his long pattern of using untruths to serve his purposes, as a businessman and politician, means that his statements are not simply careless errors.

We are using the word “lie” deliberately. Not every falsehood is deliberate on Trump's part. But it would be the height of naďveté to imagine he is merely making honest mistakes. He is lying.

                                   Trump Told Public Lies or Falsehoods Every Day for His First 40 Days

The list above uses the conservative standard of demonstrably false statements. By that standard, Trump told a public lie on at least 20 of his first 40 days as president. But based on a broader standard — one that includes his many misleading statements (like exaggerating military spending in the Middle East) — Trump achieved something remarkable: He said something untrue, in public, every day for the first 40 days of his presidency. The streak didn’t end until March 1.

 Since then, he has said something untrue on at least 74 of 113 days. On days without an untrue statement, he is often absent from Twitter, vacationing at Mar-a-Lago in Florida, or busy golfing.

The end of May was another period of relative public veracity — or at least public quiet — for the president. He seems to have been otherwise occupied, dealing with internal discussions about the Russia investigation and then embarking on a trip through the Middle East and Europe.

                                 Trump’s Public Lies Sometimes Changed With Repetition

Sometimes, Trump can’t even keep his untruths straight. After he reversed a campaign pledge and declined to label China a currency manipulator, he kept changing his description of when China had stopped the bad behavior. Initially, he said it stopped once he took office. He then changed the turning point to the election, then to since he started talking about it, and then to some uncertain point in the distant past.

                                    The Public’s Mistrust of Trump Grows

Trump has retained the support of most of his voters as well as the Republican leadership in Congress. But he has still paid some price for his lies. Nearly 60 percent of Americans say the president is not honest, polls show, up from about 53 percent when he took office.
