It will be interesting to see It will be interesting to see how many people over the coming years will join and report that they had looked at this site previously but decided not to become members at the time. I realize how slow change will happen for most people when I look at how our eating habits as a family have changed over the las ten years. At the time going to fast food restaurants was pretty normal and we didn't worry about it if it was "only once a week". Then we decided about 5 years ago to plant a veggie garden and eat only whole grains. Now we don't eat at fast restaurants at all any more, rarely eat at any restaurant, eat mostly organic, non-GMO, almost no processed food, starting to go gluten-free and I'm seriously looking at both Paleo and raw vegan, LOL. The reason I'm saying all this is: We don't live in a vacuum, as the answer to the children's footwear thread show, we are influenced by friends and family, the internet, TV etc. and even once we have decided to try something very new it can take months or years to replace old habits with new ones. I did not realize this for most of my life, but shoes are so much more than a foot covering. There is a reason the average woman who can afford it has 30 pairs or more.
