    I wonder if european families who routinely have wine with their meals have any increased or decreased incidence of alcoholism with their children?
    That is a very good question. I have friends in France and Holland, in France my friend says when she was a kid it was no big deal to drink, since she had wine starting around the age of 5... it was there and no big deal, she could take it or leave it. Now she isn't much of a drinker, once in a while. But, now that my friend is a parent, she says she has seen an increase in the use of alcohol for 'getting drunk' by teens in France. I believe I read that France has a highest rate of "alcoholism" per capita in the world, with Finland being #2. (must be those 6 months of the mid-night sun).

    My friends in Holland, where of course many wonderful substances are legal and or decriminalized... they say there is a bit of a problem with driving while impaired. On a personal note I don't know how one finds their vehicle after stopping at an Amsterdam "coffee shop". (It ain't coffee that they're selling there). That must be why there are so many bicycles in Amsterdam.

    My friend Sam from Holland sends me chocolate from time to time (during the mad cow thing, it was taken... darn)... anyway, he doesn't understand that he can't send marijuana thru the mail. So, maybe that is some insight, if not, just ignore me.

    Hi Rustyhammer, thanks for the compliment.

    oops, ignore that test. Guess I had too much Valerian root tonight.:kiss
    Amy from,

    Hey, whatever floats your boat. My hubby has his wine every night, I don't, with my Lupus it causes too much darn pain. My choice to not drink, I respect the choice of others. I do miss a nice cold Zima on a hot FL day... or the Margarittas at Chilis.

    Hi all,
    I just found this site via my site meter. Who am I? I am Amy, RN, MSN the writer and owner of I see that Betts forgot to mention that the post she posted was from my "Dumb Reasons to Drink" a list for TEENS and younger students. So, that's why it sounded like a lecture.

    I'm sorry if I sound a bit harsh that Betts didn't mention she got those words from my site. I just had a site in AU take 14 pages of Cool Nurse verbatim and even use the artwork that I had either paid for or created myself.

    So, that's it. I write for teens, not for adults. If some of you liked the site, then I'm glad. But at least tell people those were not your words. My best friend who died of ALS in July 2000 wrote that with me one day while we were gabbing online, so I guess I am a bit protective of my 350 pages.
