We agree with LAL, there is very little worth paying to store long-term. Use it or get rid of it. My BIL and SIL recently learned this lesson when they cleared out their long-term storage and realized they didn’t actually want anything in there. (Though on the plus side, some of that stuff was stuff they’d borrowed from DH! It would have been cheaper to return it before paying to store it.)
Interesting debate about homeopathy in a medical school. People, I like science. I also like plants. But I like science-based plants. I like making money, and improving lives, and railing against the American “health”care system. But somehow I seem to like science more. I’m not very well informed about most of this, but I kinda think there’s a difference between acupuncture and homeopathy. Anyone with evidence can feel free to inform me in the comments! (#2 notes: If homeopathy is real then we’re all drinking essence of poo.)
