You can only change ONE letter, AND/OR rearrange the letters currently available. The first word is:

You are a very creative and talented lady.

I try to move not too much

most

of the time, my office is not very large. But during my lunch break I have a chance to walk around in the nearby area. I can watch things grow in the nearby allotment gardens or do some shopping so that my purse won't be too heavy. We prefer to buy organic things, of course. There is an organic supermarket within reach. Luckily the normal supermarkets offer more and more organic food, too. 4,4 percent of all the food sold in Germany is currently organic. That is not very much. Other countries have higher rates, but I think this will rise steadily. The demand for organic products in Germany is higher than the available number of products already, so a lot of things have to be imported from other countrys. Only 9 % of our farms produce organic food, so there are not enough regional organic products to get us fed organically. Organic production means more work for the farmers, but their payment is better on the other hand. Prices for conventional milk are so low here currently that no farmer can live from that money. With organic milk things are going better.

you are too hard because you changed too many letters. We will use a

stop

to continue.

Okay I start my work out with.... a...

step.

I drive to the garden center for some material. May be two more calories are allowed on top today.

And yes I can move my ears too.

I read something about it in a german newspaper around two weeks ago. It is a relict from ancient times, when our forefathers have to watch out for dangerous animals.
A second one is when you tipp together thumb und pinky and bend your wrist. A muscle will appear in the middle of your forearm. 85-90% of mankind still have it. Today it makes no sense cause we are rarely climbing trees to hide or something like that. It is used in plastic surgery as replacement.

I still fail to see how evolution can possibly happen. Honestly. And years ago they said things like the appendix were useless, then found out they make white blood cells. So we may find another reason even for a muscle.

Regardless of where we came from, we're not doing too well with the way we treat the planet. It's hard to find organic farms anywhere because we have tainted the soil for years, and GMO crops have pollen spread by the wind. The food tastes wonderful, though. It's about four times the price here and limited. I love the sweetness of organic onions and carrots. And organic tomatoes are to die for.

12102. Ayla877 April 2016, 6:52 GMT +02:00

It's good to know that we have some spare muscles as a reserve. But I would agree, Evolution is going too slow for us. This may well be the reason why mankind will die out (not before we have ruined this planet, of course, which won't take very long. We are good at it.).

There are some predictions that insects will still live on Earth when humans are a thing of the

past.

I prefer to look at prices not too accurately so that I won't lose my happyness. But I have the impression that we are lucky over here - the price difference is not that great. Margarine costs three or four times as much, but the average price difference tells us that organic products cost only nearly twice as much as conventional food here. Organic food is sometimes cheaper than conventional branded articles because the owners of those brands let us pay quite a lot for their well-known names (and for the effort they invest in commercialsto promote it). I think the extra money for organic food is always a good investment, and the farmers deserve to get paid more for their healthier products.

12103. xymonau7 April 2016, 14:23 GMT +02:00

If we could get rid of the middle man, we would have far cheaper food.

spar

12104. Ayla878 April 2016, 6:32 GMT +02:00

That's right. In some areas the way we handle things is far too complex to be efficient. One

part

often doesn't know what the other is doing. So things are done twice parallel (and everyone wants to get paid for it). That goes for medical examinations as well, because the results are not shared by all the doctors who treat you.

12105. xymonau8 April 2016, 11:59 GMT +02:00

Yes, with private doctors here, unless a GP has referred you to a specialist - in which case, they automatically send their findings - you have to pay for the info to be sent. Ridiculous. It's a money

trap

and there are far too many of those. Money should represent real goods and real services, not fake ones. That's how an economy gets ruined.

12106. Ayla878 April 2016, 12:45 GMT +02:00

That's

crap.

Here your doctors often even don't ask if you have been examined recently. They don't trust the findings of other doctors, and - even more important - they want to earn the money for another examination themselfs, even if it has been done already.

12107. xymonau8 April 2016, 15:53 GMT +02:00

Anything to

crop

our wallets. LOL

12108. Ayla879 April 2016, 9:58 GMT +02:00

Yes, that's what they are good at. It's their speciality.

We have to call the

cops

to stop them.

12109. xymonau10 April 2016, 13:30 GMT +02:00

Can't

spot

a cop when you need one.

12110. Ayla8711 April 2016, 6:57 GMT +02:00

They have to

sort

out first, if they drink coffee or tea before going out on the streets. So they have their own priorities.

12111. xymonau11 April 2016, 10:39 GMT +02:00

You mustn't forget their

rota

of doughnuts. Or is that just the US?

12112. Ayla8711 April 2016, 12:29 GMT +02:00

Yes, we have a chain here called Dunkin' Donuts who offer them with saugar toppings in all colours of the world, including

rosa.

But they are not too common. Things like a Kebap or a currywurst are more likely to feed hungry cops. Even Ms. Merkel is fond of eating Kebaps.

12113. xymonau11 April 2016, 20:37 GMT +02:00

Is a kebap the same as a kebab? Describe it. We also have Dunkin' Donuts - there's one in town. I find them very rich and stodgy. The very best doughnuts I have tasted, and I swear they are made with heroin, are Krispy Kremes - the American ones. Their plain glazed are to die for, particularly when fresh, soft and aromatic. Sadly, they are made with milk, and I have to avoid them. The closest place to get them is in a roadhouse on the Bruce Highway about two and a half hours from here, anyway. Our common doughnuts are either plain round and dipped in sugar and cinnamon, long and thin, cut down the middle, filled with mock or fresh cream and a dollop of raspberry jam (also rolled in cinnamon sugar), or big round ones with no hole, rolled in cinnamon sugar and with a big dollop of raspberry jam in the centre. It's always interesting to learn about the common good and bad foods of each country.

Just as long as it's not spicy and not made with coriander, which tastes like

soap

or worse, to me, I'll give it a try.

In New York I tried a cannoli - a pastry wrapped around a custardy filling - and fell in love with them. Couldn't get them here in those days, but you can now.

12114. Ayla8712 April 2016, 6:58 GMT +02:00

The kebaps here are called Döner Kebap (or just Döner), and here is a description:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doner_kebab

I like them especially with hot sauce. Garlic sauce is also very common, but the strong garlic taste lasts very long, I don't like that.

You are lucky that Donuts are available with a lot of cinnamon. I love cinnamon.

We have also a lot of swedish cinnamon rolls in varying taste and quality available at a lot of stores, and they are very tasty.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cinnamon_roll

Whenever we find it in a

shop

it's hard to resist...

12115. xymonau12 April 2016, 11:00 GMT +02:00

Okay - those are the doner kebabs we get. I just love them. I like barbecue sauce, and plenty of salad with mushrooms and olives, and sometimes pineapple as well. I only ever get chicken or falafel ones. Are yours toasted after wrapping in a sandwich press? Honestly, they are just my most favourite take-away, but there is only one place locally that makes them. When I go to Hervey Bay I always buy one. They have a few more places. Shish kebabs are common, too. In our state and New South Wales, they are called kebabs, but in the southern states they are called gyros - the Greek version. Of course, there are a lot of cultural and food similarities between the Greeks and Turks. And because many Greek people came here in the 1950s, and generally settled in the Southern states, that is why the name differs.

When I was seeing my granddaughters, on the trip out of Brisbane I would stop at a roadhouse where there was a kebab shop. An Indian man ran it and he offered a selection of various Indian stews and samosas that were to die for. I would buy a kebab and eat it in the car park, and always a few samosas and whatever else appealed to take home and reheat. The food was so good. Sadly, they closed.

I love cinnamon sugar coated macadamias.

None of the food I like is

posh

and it tends to be hearty. I'm trying so hard to be good, though, and I'm doing moderately well. You should have seen the size of the piece of champagne (yellow) watermelon I had yesterday! It was divine, and my local rainbow lorikeets have been feeding on the remains all day. They love eating watermelon and pawpaw - any fruit, really, as they are nectar eating parrots.

12116. Ayla8712 April 2016, 12:41 GMT +02:00

Oh, I like barbecue sauce, too. I could take

pots

of it to bath in, and it goes well with chicken meals. Chicken Döner is my favourite version, the flesh is not so heavy and I have the feeling that it is a little bit healthier.

Most shops toast the bread for Döners to make it warm and crisp before they fill it. That is really nice.

Falafel can also be very tasty because of the spices, but sometimes I find it a little bit dry like powder in my mouth.

We have seen a lot of good food places come and go during the years. I'm afraid it is a sign that we are getting older.

It is very caring of you that you share your delicacies with the lorikeets. When you arrive in heaven one far day this may well reserve you eternal supply with delicate treats waiting for you.

12117. xymonau13 April 2016, 8:39 GMT +02:00

So they toast them before over there? That's interesting.

I hope heaven is not just going to do an eye for an eye. I don't want an eternal supply of watermelon skins! Frankly, I think my diet might contain more

soot

than watermelons. :(

12118. gesinek13 April 2016, 14:00 GMT +02:00

My brother is a cop.
They go for fries with Currywurst. It is a fries sausage cut in slices with bbq sauce and a lot of curry powder in different severity levels and for all varietions of fish buns. To have something sweet they buy mormally little pieces of cake calld 'Plunder' or 'Kopenhagener'. Ithink it is called 'Danish' in Australia. There was a link in an online newspaper (http://www.thesugarhit.com/)
It is the second

post

from 11.4.2016.

12119. xymonau13 April 2016, 21:55 GMT +02:00

Yes, I love apple Danish or berry Danish. The curried sausages are interesting. Apart from American style burgers (Hungry Jacks - which is Burger King, and McDonalds offer police half price burgers to ensure there is a police presence there), I don't think it's typical police fare, but we have meat pies as a very traditional take-away. Mutton and peppery gravy filling in a case of flaky pastry. And all kinds of variations on the theme, especially today as our palates are more sophisticated. One of my favourites locally is a garlic chicken triangle - a creamy garlic chicken filling wrapped in a triangle of flaky pastry. They only make a few each day, and you can't always get them. I rarely buy them now, anyway, but I was raised eating a meat pie with scalding gravy running all over your hands and burning your mouth as the food you bought when the family was out and about. A lot of food-related memories from the

past.

12120. Ayla8715 April 2016, 6:32 GMT +02:00

Gesine, Christa and I are fond of Currywurst, too. Luckily we get organic Currywurst from happy animals. I don't have to be a cop to like them, not even a

star.

The quality and range of take away food differs a lot between the countries. I have the impression that in England you get many more fresh and often healthier sandwhiches than here - a thing to make us envious.
