  • Neighbor had me over for Memorial Day. I brought deviled eggs because our tradition was to go to my sister-in-law condo in Wisconsin Dells. They had a big cook out. You bought either a steak or chicken and then those at the condo would bring a side. DSIL would always make deviled eggs. My friend, Jeannie, who I mentioned…
  • M Agree about insight and Mental Illness. It is one of the saddest part or the disease. Your brain will not accept there is something wrong. Without being able to understand there is a problem it makes it very difficult to treat. To overcome this the person has to rely and trust the people around them to let them know a…
  • I lost my wisdom teeth as a teen. I have the rest of my teeth. Two are capped but no root canal. I noticed since I have changed the way I eat my sinuses and the one capped tooth on the same side I had sinus issues no longer bothers me. I learned when I was researching a better diet for myself that tooth and gum disease is…

  • Talked to my friend's daughter. She is at the sleeping most of the time stage and not saying much. I told her to keep talking to her. I believe it helps my friend and her daughter. Her other daughter who lives in Seattle flew back so she is surrounded by her children. She is in a hospice setting in the nursing home section…
  • (((Beth))) (((Annie))) Decisions are lousy and lousy. Went through this with DH mom. One up side to DH is I did not have to put him in a hospital or a home. Hard enough without that extra burden. Please do what you can to take care of you at this time even if you only have five minutes to take it!!! I know eating the best…
  • Lisa you and a couple of other friends alerted me right away so I was able to hopefully put a stop to the hacker. Thank you!
  • Last time I made yogurt I let it incubate for 14 hours rather than 12 it did come out thicker. I am using organic grass feed whole milk. It is a bit pricey I do get two batches out of a half gallon cartoon. One container of good quality yogurt costs about the same as my milk so I figure it does save plus I know it is…
  • Flea herbs like rosemary, lavender are mediterranean plants so they don't need much water. Basil likes to stay moist and likes some shelter from intense sun. I pot mine separately from other herbs for this reason. When about 4-6 inches cut off tops to get it to fill out and not go to seed. If I want it handy I will cut off…
  • (((Rebecca))) I am glad for you they are being so thorough although it might take a bit longer because of it. Happy Dance once it is complete.
  • RebeccaAre they addressing the mold on the dry wall? This is the time to do it before the new cabinets are put in. I know you'll be glad when it is done!
  • I went walking with Jane and DrewB to enjoy the crabapples trees in bloom! <img…
  • I am enjoying my homemade yogurt. A friend tried it and she said it was like the yogurt you get in Europe. It is not quite as thick as the American version. I used a good starter Whole Milk Stonybrook ( a Minnesota brand) I use organic whole milk too when I make it. I reserve 3/8 of a cup from a batch to 3 cups of whole…
  • Barbie I call it being aware of the muck. Gratitude and focusing on what you can do to make your life and health better is what keeps the muck from pulling you down.
  • Evelyn So sorry about family losses. Allie Add my voice of support as Tracey and family (including you) go through a very difficult time Barbara As we get older we often times have less stomach acid than more. For some reason this causes the valve on our stomach to not close properly hence GERD. Unfortunately excess weight…
  • RoriI found Nestor's stories about how so many of us have breathing issues due our mouths becoming smaller due to diet changes...less chewing and more processed foods. These changes have been going on for generations. I am working on changing my diet. In doing so a low grade sinus infections cleared up and a check up of no…
  • Thank you Barbie! Went to the cemetery to start the design for DH and My Marker. I want it to match our son's so we will have separate markers that match our son's marker. The designs in the joint marker do not match his. There is more flexibility in doing it this way. I decided to make them more unified by having each…
  • Went to a Bells Concert at my church with a friend yesterday. They ringers were outstanding. She had never been to one and it was on her list to experience it. Wonderful time. She had just watched a documentary on Netflix on the gut. I had just listened to Robert Lustig on The Quit Sugar Summit so much of our chronic…
  • Rori when DrewB went through her anemia a year and a half ago. I started looking for other answers when the vet wanted to give her steroids. I now give her a diet 80% non processed food- liver, organic chicken or beef, a few veggies, goats mild or home made broth. The other 20% is freezed- dried Kibble. Because of our…
  • On a gray rainy day went to Art in Bloom with my friend Jane. We had a wonderful time. I will be posting more over the next few days. <img…
  • One of the comments from the Quit Sugar Summit is that one of the biggest motivators for people to change their diets is their brains are not working they way they want. Creating the diet that works for you that causes your blood sugar to be healthy results in a brain that works in a healthy manner. The second speaker I…
  • Our block had quite the excitement. A neighbor up the street 80 year old aunt drove her car into their home. She hit the accelerator and got confused and lost control of the car. So taking the keys away from a loved one who is no longer well enough to drive can help them stay safe them as well as others. She and her…
  • Michele So hard about your friend when you are so far away. Holding you both in thoughts and prayers!
  • I watched a video on YouTube last night on insulin resistance. As I look back to my numbers from my last doctor appointment I was going from the slipping category to pre diabetic. This wake up call is what got me to change my diet. The damage insulin can do in your body when it is not doing its job properly is scary same…
  • Tracey when I was teaching and I had to do something like that I would say I am putting your desk in time out! I learned that from a special Ed teacher. It does catch them off guard. I found it worked better in some situations rather than giving the student a stop and think time. I also learned the best way was to do it…
  • Good Morning...I got DH car sold to a friend so she could have it for her daughter. I told her what maintenance I would do if I kept the car so I priced the car with that in mind. The DMV did price it higher which did not surprise me. This way I did not have to take it to CARMAX and I got about what they would have paid…
