“Often I wonder to what extent a mortal‘s love grows from the bedrock of his or her foreknowledge of death, love coiling like a green stem out of that blankness in a way I‘ll never quite understand. And lately I‘ve been having a terrible thought: Our love affair will end before the world does.”

So this comic is completely new to me, but it looks like something I would have loved as a kid! I was fanatical about Archie comics.

Candy is about a midwestern girl named Candace who was apparently very sweet but also had a mind of her own. It was published in the 40s and 50s.

Coffee, Tea or Me? | Donald Bain, Baker Trudy, Jones Rachel
post image

This book caused such a scandal when it was released in the 60s. I remember it was verboten in our house—not for kids! It was actually written by a man, Donald Bain, though it was touted as a memoir by two “airline stewardesses. The “stews” were written as lusty and insatiable sex babes (naturally, in the male mind!). When I thought of the song, “No Sugar Tonight” I thought of this book...no sugar, and just no 🚫 to the book as well!

Cinfhen Ha!! Like your interpretation for this one ☝🏾 I remember this ( Coffee, Tea or Me?) as being a catch phrase 10mo
gradcat @Cinfhen I‘m surprised that you remember that...it was a double-entendre for the times. Long time ago...and once again, I‘m showing my age! 😂😂 10mo

SleepyDragon Never heard of this book, but it reminded me of Jeri Ryan in the movie "Down With Love." 10mo
gradcat @NeesyBeth That‘s perfect! 👌🏻😂 10mo
Crazeedi @gradcat @Cinfhen wow, totally forgot this, and how we used the phrase when our parents weren't around!😉 it was so racy and so verboten!!! 10mo
Cinfhen So true @Crazeedi As a child it felt “sophisticated” using that phrase @gradcat 😂😂😂 10mo

#nosugartonight (or any night, really) if you're diabetic. #timbittunes @Cinfhen @TheKidUpstairs

Cailey_Mac The endocrinologist I worked for always strived for this; I loved that he would try to get patients off any medications if he could. 10mo
SoniaC Would you recommend it? I‘m struggling with diabetes and am curious if this is worth reading. 10mo
jenniferw88 @SoniaC I haven't read this - just did a Goodreads search but if you use insulin and carbohydrate count i can recommend 10mo

SoniaC @jenniferw88 Thank you I‘ll check it out. 10mo
Dndlnz @SoniaC I‘m torn about the book and his theory. I‘m diabetic. After great A1C for 2 years it doubled. I‘ve spent about 8 weeks on the keto diet. I‘m not perfect — it‘s HARD. I‘ve lost about 6 lbs - not much. Blood sugar down a little. By far biggest help is intermittent fasting 20+ hours. Much more effective than keto. I‘d say go keto — but FAST 24 hours each week. When fasting bs drops and stays low a few days regardless of diet. 8mo
jenniferw88 @Chrissyreadit again, the comments may help. 3mo
