I had 15 comments to moderate and all of them were spam. I’m beginning to think that no one is reading my blog any more. I haven’t gotten a single comment that I can publish for two weeks. Maybe I’m doing this just for my own amusement and nothing else. Do I keep on or do I quit? I feel like I’m talking to myself.

    I’ve read your whole blog now, and love it. Please don’t stop.

    How do you tell if a persimmon is ripe? Also, I just paid $1.99 for a young coconut. Is that price okay?

    Shout out to Tommie! I’m listening! =) Don’t stop your blog… it is an inspiration and I love the way you write. The world needs more raw blogs – so I started one too. =) I hope it will be half as fun as yours!

    I have just begun looking into raw food diets as part of an attempt to move towards eating only whole foods most of the time. I have enjoyed the information and insights you have shared in your blog and hope you won’t give it up.
    best wishes,

    I’m reading your blog! I found it a few weeks ago and I’ve been reading religiously since then, but not commenting. I actually went right back to your first entry and read every single one you’ve written, it was so cool to witness your whole journey all at once. I’m 18 and I’ve been raw for 4 1/2 months (vegan for two years before that and vegetarian for 4 years total). You really remind me of a raw friend I have, who is 65.

    Thanks to all of you who responded to my blatant scream for attention! I do appreciate it. Since I do most of the “talking” on here, it’s hard to tell if anyone is really staying and reading.

    Chris, if you get a fuyu, you can eat it at any stage. It won’t pucker your mouth. If you get an Asian or Japanese (Hachiya) variety, it is astringent and has to be almost falling apart to keep from puckering your mouth. Let it get really really soft before you slaughter it. As for the coconut, that’s higher than what I pay. Where I buy mine, singles sell for $1.69, a case of nine goes for 10 cents off each one. However, my daughter has to pay close to $3 each so yours is considerably less than that.

    Amy, I took a look at your blog. It’s beautiful! This is kind of the Plain Jane variety. My daughter was talking about a “more graphical” one but this is me.

    Jeff, I’ll write as long as people are reading. Leave me a comment now and then so I’ll know I’m not all alone.

    Freedom, I found your blog recently, too! I thought it was interesting that you have such a hard time finding uncook books. There’s a wealth of recipes for raw food on the World Wide Web. Just look around. You and Chris are both brave people to wade through all my stumbling and groping through the raw food maze. My secret weapon has been Roger all along, though. I couldn’t have done it without him.

    I’m sure that’s what it is. 8) And you’re welcome!
