@Pi Walkable does't just mean that you can get from one end of the city to the other in a short amount of time on foot. It can also mean that the streets are walker friendly. NYC for example is a walkable city, lots of wide sidewalks and timely crosswalk light. Buildings are also close together. LA on the other hand has stretches of space between buildings, a lack of well maintained sidewalks and it's often difficult to cross the road. You can have a walkable city that still has use for a monorail to get from one end to the other and public transportation is great when you have a lot to carry from Point A to Point B.

Won't touch it. Sweetener is sweetener not matter the form. As someone with celiac and a sugar sensitivity I don't bother with things like this - my body is going to react the same way to sugar as it does to agave or maple syrup or Splenda. All the GF or sugarfree products out there make someone who has a dietary health issue think they can be normal when they're just masking the problem with junk rather than taking the time to understand their body and its relationship to different foods in order to be healthy.

Sounds like my experience with brussel sprouts this weekend. They were the size of my palm (which is rather small, but still way too large for a brussel sprout). As much as I wanted some with my dinner I had to pass. Same went for the watermelon wrapped in celophane - it was practically white. The non-GMO, pesticide free, in-season stuff always tastes (and looks) a million times better.

Gen X/Y cusp - limited by space, but I certainly garden in my little apartment. I was on the balcony until my landlord dubbed my tomato plants as "furniture" which was forbidden on the balconies. What a bording building facade we have.
