Grocer (no not her)
I seem to remember that a diet almost exclusively of chickpeas etc damages the nervous system so maybe not suitable commercial weight loss exploitation though I like the idea. I think these side effects of pulses are only seen in the poor who are eating them to excess, if that is not a contradiction.
Regarding old and hard chickpeas needing longer cooking, that applies to all pulses so this is exactly the wrong time of year to find good quality ones. Your grocer (remember them?) is your friend an will be able to tell you how ancient the pulses are that he is selling at any one time.
Curiously, the older peas are more expensive if you are buying them for poultry feed as they lose more and more water each year they are kept and thus have a higher protein content per kilo. Same principle as salami etc.
If you are advocating that the poor should live on daily chickpeas, just be aware of Lathyrism which causes shrunken buttocks and other symptoms.

"Re-reading my copy I don't believe I have come close to suggesting you have to use Android to access a Google Calender on the go"
I think you came close when you wrote "Google’s cloudy calendar was the main reason I adopted Android as my mobile OS of choice" which I think implies you cannot use it elsewhere but it's not worth arguing about :)
Sync Google to Apple
No doubt it is a wonderful app but your premise that you have to use Android to sync with Google calendar is way off as I have no trouble syncing several Google Calendars [ie several free G accounts] with my Apple Mac Calendar app and Apple iPod Touch Calendar app.
He says he has all his photos elsewhere
He says he has all his photos elsewhere, it is more that he has lost all the other flickr content - comments, links etc.
Perhaps they will take it out of his salary ...
... which I think is in the region of $1.00 per annum.
Does it have blu-ray?

In court you should ask to affirm and they will produce an alternative oath. However, from memory, it reads "on soul and conscience" which begs several questions :(
No need to stun first in UK
No need to stun first in UK provided you are a Jew or Moslem. I believe some Moslems are OK with stunning before throat cutting but Jews are not

Sergeant pilots were still flying in the RAF in 1957 when I was a National Seviceman in Aden. I am fairly sure that they were all Polish.
