    • The Trevor Project Orange Party - October 10, 2015   10/04/2015

      Dear Thinner Times Members -  As is evident, we don't use Thinner Times to serve advertisements or to generate profits. Every now and then, however, something comes along that 'hits home' that we like to promote. My partner, Josh, is the co-chair of the Ambassadors group for The Trevor Project - a leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ youth. Josh is co-hosting the San Diego annual fundraiser and party this year, which we have been spending many tireless months planning for. If you, a friend or family member is interested in supporting the Trevor Project, make a night of it next week at The Orange Party. Tickets are $75 for general admission, and $100 for regular admission. Two of the cast members from "Glee" will be there co-hosting, as well.  Learn more about the event and registration on this website I put together this weekend: http://trevororange.party/. My father, Dr. Callery, will also be attending, so we hope to see you there! John Callery

    Cinwa, I promise I'm not fixing to chow on the stuff.. Lol I was just wandering when it would be ok. I don't even want to know how many calories are in the movie theater popcorn!! I think it would give me a heart attack!! No pun intended!! Lol

    Ok, I know there is a thread somewhere about popcorn, but I could not find it. I know that I'm prob too early for popcorn now. But I was just wandering at what stage or how far out did everyone else eat some popcorn. I do not et it very often at all, but I do take my little girl to the movies occasionally and would lime to have a little popcorn.
    Thanks and Merry Christmas to all!!!
    Oh yea, I'm down 25 1/2 lbs now since surgery!!!

    I find it offensive to the person thatsaid that people who tell about their surgery and need a lot of support or not strong enough!!!! Well ur Dead wrong!!! I have told peoe about my surgery and will cont to tell people as my journey cont. I love having the support of my family and friends!! Do I need it. Not really! I would have done this anyway! But it's nice to have those people when u have a rough day. I am a strong person and will succeed!!! now u saying u don't need support contradicts why u are on this forum!!

    I found walden farm salad dressings at our Walmart tonite. I only bought the ranch to give it a try and it was very good. I'm still on mushies so I came home and fixed a baked potato and put the dressing on that. Very good!!!
