07:08 pm: Finally! The "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" Law is Gone!

Last night I watched a DVD and read the paper I bought. I got to bed to read at midnight and finished the book at 2:30am. I wasn't sleepy, so I started the next, which gets one more try tonight. No paper again today -- I filled out the form again and asked if there were humans because I haven't heard from any of them. I didn't get the TV Week, so I'll have to work with TitanTV to find out what I'm watching next week. Admittedly, during this time, most of the real shows go away and tacky holiday shows come on.

For December, our bookgroup gets a good story from a Best Of and then comment on others that are good. I brought one of the old DAW ones, and the librarian/leader/fan and her husband brought two different DAW ones. The others had newer anthologies. I was the only one who'd typed up comments for the one I liked best. We didn't go to dinner because half the group had colds and another quarter had places to go.

I was planning to put this up, and even though it doesn't matter as much now that DADT is dead, I think it's a really great moving opinion by a Marine infantry captain.

An ad in last night's paper caught my eye -- bottled tea. Bottled tea is almost always sweetened, so I looked to see what it said. Yes, the picture had bottled sweetened tea. And then the words were:

Enjoy the home-brewed taste of Gold Peak Iced Tea -- made with real sugar, hand-selected tea leaves and natural flavors, just like real tea.

I thought I didn't put natural flavors in my tea, plus I like mine unsweetened. I went to the Gold Peak Tea forum and find that first, there is unsweetened tea, and that the flavors are green tea and lemon. Coca Cola put up an ad that would have made me go on if the "flavors" didn't bother me. I wonder how many people just pass it up.

I've always wanted to grow a natural flavors bush.

I've been having difficulty finding seeds.

LOL You could probably just chew the leaves to get the flavor you like!
