Alan made a joke, that posting a photo of Macadamia Nut Pie was mean, I was tempting the members of HoboTraveler.com. I have not ate sugar for 2 years.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America
I was sitting on the Kitsch Bakery porch a few days ago talking to my friend Bob, when he spotted a piece of pie being served at the next table, he says to the waitress,
“What kind of pie is that?”
“Please give me a piece.”
“Let me take a photo, I have never seen a Macadamia Nut pie in my life.”
Then, a few days ago, inside the members only area of HoboTraveler.com, I posted the photo for fun, and to help Hobo members to know that Macadamia Nuts are cheap, and grown in Guatemala, so in the event they visit Lake Atitlan, they can enjoy these nuts that are expensive in the USA, but cheap here.
I gave up Sugar, May 18, 2014, the day they buried my Father in Orland, Indiana, and for almost two years, I have gave up eating sugar as best possible. It may well be impossible to stop eating sugar completely, they insert this in products, and almost anything packaged has it. Nonetheless, I have done good, I am not perfect, but this addictive substance is not going to kill me.
I believe that sugar along working along with all the chemicals that touched my Fathers body, soap, hair cream, shaving lotion, aftershave, shampoo, and 100’s more killed my father. The chemicals gave him prostate cancer, and the sugar fed the cancer, his addiction to sugar made him fat, weakened it, and the body was not able to stop the cancer from growing.
Sugar kills, in my opinion, it is worst than alcohol, heroin, prescription medicine, marijuana, cars, and cigarettes, it is the killer of Americans. It is even worst than mosquitoes!
My brother now has type II diabetes, what can I say, this is the killer of my family; the worst addiction on the planet is socially acceptable, and encouraged.
So, here I am posting a photo of an addiction, am I mean? No, however, yes, I did think 2-3 times about this photo before I posted it, but maybe there is some good by tempting you to look at the photo, then tempting you to read this, maybe I can tempt you to watch this video about baby killer sugar.
