How many calories are there in a glue stick? This question came up in a discussion with a chef about at what point edible things cease to be food. The chef felt that the substance must contain some kind of nutritional content. Is a glue stick food if it has calories? What about elmer's glue?

FungusFilter: I have an unpleasant intenstinal reaction to shiitake mushrooms. A nibble off of one is enough to set it off. This is a fairly new thing for me (I used to be able to eat them, though fortunately for me, I was never a big fan). Regular cap mushrooms and portobellos are fine. This leaves a lot of other mushrooms (porcini, etc) in the twilight zone. Based on this limited knowledge, are there other mushrooms I should avoid? Experimenting with every mushroom that comes along could get pretty ugly.

Living in Dunedin I know of Casa Tina, which I am not that impressed by. Besides The Columbia Restaurant in Ybor City and Terra Sur what are some of the best places to get some good quality Hispanic/Latino food in the greater Tampa Bay area? It doesn't matter if its Cuban, Mexican, Puerto Rican, Dominican, Peruvian, etc. This could also be a really fancy place or even a hole in the wall type of establishment (which can be the best).

Can any of you recommend a thermos/food jar that is durable and can keep food hot (not just luke warm) for at least 8 hours. I have tried a few thermoses and have been really disappointed even if I heat the thermos with really hot water beforehand. The ones I have tried were pretty cheap plastic ones. I am willing to spend more money on a stainless one or some other material if it works decent. I'd just like to get some opinions before I plunk down my money on any one brand of thermos. Thanks :)
