    Any thoughts on coconut sugar? I just purchased some and it seems to have a very sugar count.

    I am very interested in this topic..I avoid sugar as much as I can but don't have a lot of knowledge on how other sweetners can be just as bad for you such as diet drinks etc...need answers and this sounds like a very informative meet up...looking forward to leaning more on this topic.

    The sweet and sour sides of sugar, and on Shakespeare's birthday, no less. In honor of the Bard, I will bring some local honey...

    This joyful springtime hummingbird will be there to suck the nectar of your lessons about the sweet and sour sides of sugar. It's Shakespeare's birthday--what kinds of sweets did they love in the Renaissance?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
