flag
Sliced Bread It may be. Onion, bokchoy, olive oil.
flag
Sliced Bread C'est tout.
flag
Sliced Bread I started the pasta in spring water.
flag
Sliced Bread Oh, and a tiny bit of green pepper that had to used or tossed.
flag
Sliced Bread More like rendered wrt the green pepper.
flag
CayenneCarrot I haven’t even bought bok Choy since I was in China.. I should though. Very lovely for soups/ veggie mixes.
flag
Sliced Bread Superior to celery and usually better quality in this neck of the woods. Can be cheaper here too.
flag
Sliced Bread The celery here is mostly miles from organic.
flag
CayenneCarrot I don’t even purchase it.
flag
Sliced Bread It's been years for me.

Sliced Bread I never had a problem with gmo till I bought Mike's Organic Lemons.
flag
Sliced Bread Taste like a test tube.
flag
CayenneCarrot Composted or thrown away
flag
Sliced Bread I ate them. Always best to suffer the consequence. Helps u remember.
flag
CayenneCarrot hopefully
flag
Sliced Bread At least for me. If I tossed then I'd end up buying them again.

flag
Sliced Bread I'm transitioning to the Treaty Shore.
flag
Sliced Bread This place was not meant for settlement.

flag
CayenneCarrot You do not fish?
flag
CayenneCarrot That must be fascinating.
flag
CayenneCarrot Physics was always my downfall when I was young.
flag
CayenneCarrot Well I think I had a B+ in high school, was a difficult year for me due to familial issues.
flag
CayenneCarrot And because of it, I didn’t think to study further, but I do respect someone who can excel in that field.
flag
CayenneCarrot I suppose my mindset was more focused on biological psychology and psycho linguistics at that time, which didn’t do me much justice as I am now as I referred to before, in middle management.
flag
CayenneCarrot Are you funded via grants or work as a consultant
flag
Sliced Bread I recall the optics portion on the high school exam was rigged. And I has the same problem in university and in calculus as well.

flag
Sliced Bread I paid the journal fees.
flag
Sliced Bread Me or my co-author did.
flag
Sliced Bread I expect intellectual property royalties may arise.
flag
Sliced Bread Just waiting for someone to apply for a patent that cites my paper.
flag
Sliced Bread Before the patent is granted, I get paid. So I think.
flag
CayenneCarrot Someone is already in the process, or you are awaiting a person to apply
flag
Sliced Bread The more the merrier.
flag
Sliced Bread But I can't say for sure if anyone is working on this.
flag
Sliced Bread The plandemic can go on and on.
flag
Sliced Bread Spring 2022 is my guess for the end date.
