Dagger to say that there is no correlation between diabetes and diet is just plain wrong.  Sure there are other factors such as genetics, and exercise, and stress, but diet is the most important factor in Type II diabetes.  As I said in my previous post there are always exceptions to the rule, but the evidence is monumental.  I am a great example of it.  Once I left the restaurant world and became a food service administrator where I pretty much sit for 8 hours a day as...
Unfortunately, Someday, it's not always easy to get fresh mussles in some places.
Dagger, while I will agree with you to a point, that there are many factors that contribute to obesity, diet is a huge one.  Sure you can point to those skinny people that are couch potatoes and eat terribly, and I can point out "fat" people who watch what they eat and get a good amount of exercise, those aren't the norm.  Study after study have shown a direct link between diet, lack of exercise, and diabetes.  Americans, as a whole, are not as active as we used to be, and...
While it could be a homemade rosette form, the placement of the handle would make it awkward to work with.  The handle normally would be in the center, rising above it. Whatever it is, the more I look at it the more convinced I become that it is a homemade thing.  I also wonder if it is a "kitchen" tool.  I know that I have a number of other tools in my kitchen so it really could be for anything.
I have never seen anything like that before.  I kind of agree with phatch's assessment that it might be a homemade job, but for what I couldn't guess.
Foodpump, I don't think anyone will disagree that our Western, American diet can be pretty terrible and we have become, generally, lazy as a society, where kids would rather play on their Playstations than go outside, move around, and play pretend like we did when I was a kid.  But I have to ask, do you seriously advocate letting our government intrude into our lives so much that they can dictate what we eat?  Let's face it, our government is divided on things like global...
Dang! It just got real!!!!
I hope that Sodastream doesn't tank!!  Or if they do, I can find someone else to sell me cannisters of CO2 that fit the machine.  I have never been a fan of their syrups.  Even the non-diet ones contain artificial sweetener and I'm just not a big fan of the taste it leaves behind.  I will, on occasion, buy one of their syrups but for the most part we make our own soda syrups as well as shrubs (drinking vinegars) that we mix with the carbonated water.  If I'm in the mood...
Exactly who is making a mockery out of this site?   I think the question is a very legitimate one and, while I might not agree with all the answers, the dialogue has been a good one, with everyone contributing something to the conversation.  I don't see what the problem is.
