No, but cooking the livin' @#%$ out of it does.

Part of the problem with cabbage is the fiber. The rest is sulfurous compounds.

The good news is that you break down a lot of both during the long cooking process.

Just to be safe though, its advised that everyone in the household eats the cabbage.

If all else fails, blame the dog.

It is the same for trolls.

What he said above....


And.... I can not believe that any of these spam emails actually get someone to buy... but as they say about fools.....

BTW... maybe if they had a .1 cent charge on each email sent... or something like that it might cut down on all the spam... but I am now going on a tangent...

They're just "cruising" the Internet.........usually I ingore them.........

Of course, someone from New York who spells behavior as "behaviour" could be trolling.

OK, explains a lot... I did not want to go that route as the hours were not what I was interested in doing after working for one of the Big 8 (yes, back when there were 8)...

Still would love to get one that has some travel to it though...
