    The following is ALMOST poetry (in fact I may make a poem out of it later on) .

    The Director of the National Museum in Iceland says that it is definitely established that during 600 years,1200 to 1800 in Iceland, there were no dental cavities. The foods they ate were milk and milk products, mutton, beef and fish. They ate no carbohydrate. The only exception to this was a little moss soup in the summer, but this was a rare 'fun food' of little nutritional importance. Two Indian tribes reveal the same thing.

    The prehistoric Indians of California were vegetarians, unlike most folks of that period, and they had tooth decay. In contrast, the Sioux Indians lived on buffalo meat and were devoid of cavities. The Pueblos worshipped the Corn God, but he was not grateful. They have the most wretched teeth of all the American Indian tribes. They live on corn, squash and beans. The Laplanders, who ate mostly reindeer meat during the 18th century, rarely had cavities. Modern laps have a decay rate of 85% of their teeth.

    Best wishes

    Look Ma, no fluoride....!

    OK, we're getting a good list going, but let's 'close the doors' until I hear from those we've already invited. I'm sure everyone wants in, but I need a minute to tally the volume and space requirements before we proceed. I'll post tomorrow am where we stand.

      brief bio, please, like a SHORT paragraph (most have around 3 sentences) .

    I am very much looking forward to seeing a mix of our work side by side in this way as I find book reading to be an entirely different experience than reading posts on the internet! I hope anyone looking in will feel free to send 3 of their best poems and their bio to Lori in time for inclusion, as there doesn't seem to be any huge danger of it getting too big at this point.

    thanks for that, and now back to our regularly scheduled programming. I have poems for Max, Sherrie, Herbert, Raynette, Marcy, Mary, Mahnaz, Alice Vedral, and Sally Clarke. I've emailed requests to David Nelson B., Ulrike and Jacob Hassler, but John Kay and Andrew K don't accept email. I need some lunch; someone reach out to the others, please. Then I think we're set!

      I sent news to John and Andrew via Reply forms from old e-mails. I also notified Lamont, Adam, and Michael Phillips. Anyone else think of any 'regulars' here?
