What would you, my friends and fellow boaters suggest?

Larry, I love Bob Evans biscuits and sausage gravy, but never forget to "Take Home a Package of Tennessee Pride".

Ms BandB has the right idea. The term "trawler" is correct if it helps communicate the intended message. It is the wrong term if it creates confusion.


I enjoy being termed a motorsailer, as this term is more self explanatory than trawler to non-boaters, so I don't have to assess the listener as carefully before saying what type of boat I have.


For those who like to group things neatly, my mast is slightly too long to be a trawler, but not quite long enough to be a sailboat.

Don I hope you never find out what's in the biscuits and gravy just like I'm afraid to know what's in Jack in the Box $0.99 for two tacos.

Merriam-Webster defines a trawler as "a person who trawls or a boat used for trawling."

No worries, Eric. I know a Jack in the Box regional manager and he assures me that the taco ingredients are produced under the most stringent quality controls Dow Chemical has created to date.

Marin,
Thank's but how can they make two tacos for 1/15th of minimum wage?

I'm going to search my 1953 Motor Boating magazine for the word trawler. May not find it.

The tacos may be what are called "loss leaders." This term, as I understand it, means a product that is sold at a loss but that helps generate more overall business for a company, or helps build demand for that particular product.

When the Toyota Prius was first introduced in the US it was sold for a tremendous loss. You could buy them for a song. One of my co-workers and her husband bought two of them when they first became available (she still has and drives hers). I think they paid less than $20,000 for each one of them.

As the demand grew, the price began creeping back up and now today they are a profitable product for Toyota.

Eric, at my age I think the only thing holding me together is the glue stuff in that sausage gravy. I am afraid to stop eating it.

You might consider it Don. I think Biscuits and gravy is about the most unhealthy thing you can eat. I've even been reading that Wheat is so bad one should not eat any of it. That's where the sugar is comming from .. not so much the usual places. That's why we Americans are so fat. Two slices of wheat bread = more sugar than a Snickers bar. We're learning so fast about food nutrition that it's hard to find good food to eat.

3 fingers of decent wiskey, bourbon, rum, scotch, (insert preference) fixes all that.....

Of course not if you have a behavioral or chemical problem with it.....

Coming from you, Eric, I know that it is good advice. Like you said that bread is a carbohydrate. All carbs are basically sugar or the body easily converts them to sugars. That raises glucose levels that leads to weight gain.

Greetings,
The MAJOR problem with weight control is NOT carbs or sugars or fats or any other "bad food of the week". It's portion control-plain and simple. Just take a look around your local Golden Griddle. Don't be so quick to overreact to the latest "food doom". Nothing inherently wrong with almost anything you may care to eat IN MODERATION.

On my SPORTY (not a trawler, no matter how slow I drive it or what kind of fishing I do, of which trawling is a part of) I have 2 eggs over easy and 2 peices of bacon every morning. My mom and dad et that, my grandparents on both sides et that. They only lived to be about 95ish or therebouts. My mom and dad are still eating like that everyday. Dad is 78 and can still put 125 bales of hay on a truck faster than anybody here. Garranteed.

Agreed x 10 - However, I must say... there are some foods better for nutrition and your system in general than others.

In regard to food, my preferences are the same as my boat. Keep it simple!

My wife & I try not buy anything with more than 3 ingredients; Especially if we cannot pronounce them.

And as RT said. Don't overeat. Learn to listen to your body. Eat because you are hungry. Not because you are bored/stressed/thirsty/anxious. Stop eating when you are not hungry.

It is as simple/difficult as that.
