Maybe our yeti has gone back to Siberia?? :unsure: Now trending on Yahoo news:

"Bigfoot researcher and biologist John Bindernagel claims his research group has found evidence that the Yeti (a Russian "cousin" of the American Bigfoot) not only exists, but builds nests and shelters by twisting tree branches together.

"We didn't feel like the trees we saw in Siberia had been done by a man or another mammal.... Twisted trees like this have also been observed in North America and they could fit with the theory that Bigfoot makes nests. The nests we have looked at are built around trees twisted together into an arch shape," Bindernagel told the British tabloid The Sun."

Anyone have a nest in their garden?

OMG..............I'm gonna be looking around my outdoor surroundings very carefully from now on....... . . ..for large, twisted clumps of branches....

A nest that would hold our yeti would have to be a fair size. I would know this well, as I was the one relegated to the job of measuring his inseam for Amanda's wedding tux..... . . . .

:lol:

I think the baby Yeti is still in my basement where he hibernated all summer. He should be coming out soon.

Gads. Pouring rain here. My thought process this morning has been:

Not riding my bike.

OK, 7:05 boat instead of 6:20

7:55 boat

do I have to go.....yes, dangitall.

PeOte--We took a ride the other night and somehow ended up listening to a radio station out of Toronto. (we have satellite, but Mark still likes to fool around with the dial) I think it was 720? Old stuff but enjoyable.

Hi everybody! Haven't been here in ages. :( Caught up a few pages, but not far back, knowing that I could get totally sucked in and lost forever.

Joess....I LOVE, love, love the new babies!

I'm glad that I see some of you on FB, and so am not totally out of the loop. Hoping that you are all relatively well. Hugs all 'round!

HAPPY GOBBLE GOBBLE TO ALL WHO CELEBRATE AND HOLIDAY BLESSINGS TO EVERYONE (THANKSGIVIANS OR NOT).

My boy is back home through Sunday and we go to Ct. overnight tomorrow (and as usual I have walking pneumonia). At least it won't stop me from enjoying the food - just the wine.

Rachelle, extra thoughts, blessings, and prayers to you. You're one of the strongest women I know. Just remember we're all here for you!!!

Love,

Loey wub.gifwub.gifwub.gif

Well.....as much as I hate cooking.....and doubly hate cooking food which I can NOT EAT!.....this Thanksgiving was one of the best. I am pretty much limited to meat and veggies, so I successfully tried 2 new EASY veggie recipes. Seasoned broccoli and oven baked asparagus(with parmesan cheese....yummm)

Back when my diet was less restrictive I would make and enjoy traditional family favorites.....praline sweet potatoes and homemade creamed corn, which I still cook for everyone else.(Oh wait, I made my brother fix the corn :P )

So my daughter made a pumpkin pie and hubby brought home a co-workers home-made sugar cream pie. He also had brought some persimmon puree with which HE made persimmon pudding! (ok....so it took twice as long as expected, delaying the start of the turkey. But I hear it tasted great!)

Let me explain something here.

Brian does not cook.

Ever.

So what is usually a very stessful and painful (bad back in a kitchen all day) event was actually only mildly painful and quite enjoyable.

We were also serenaded with NUMEROUS rounds of the ABC song thoughout the evening by my 2 yr old grandbaby, Alexis :rolleyes:

And best of all, I am reminded that a little over 2 years ago I came close to losing my son and husband at the same time, but they both are alive and healthy today. For this I am extremely thankful.

Doesn't get much better than that.

It sure doesn't. :):wub:

I've been thinking about you, Leeeesargh, over the last little while as I was sure that the horrific stories with Brian and your son were coming to us around Thanksgiving... . .....such a difficult anniversary to acknowledge, but it sounded so wonderful for you this year! :)

CNN just aired a program on Christchurch, NZ and the opening viewing of the Cathedral...as aftershocks continue. And awaiting the demolition of so many beautiful buildings. So sorry Shroomy! :( Hope your city recovers in glory!

Thanks for your post, Lisa - kinda teared me up :( which I guess is kinda psilly, 'cos it won't put the bricks back :rolleyes: I am not going to do the walk or the bus tour - just move on to the future and hope they don't build too many tilt-up concrete slabs with no soul :unsure:

Did they mention the ReStart with our one home-grown fine department store, Ballantynes, which survived a devastating fire in 1947, came through the quake in pretty good shape and is now reopened meeting 100% of current earthquake standards!! on City Mall, with a crazy bunch of shops and little cafes in two precincts created from new shipping containers? Sounds weird but is actually quite quaint :) Life goes on..... And by the way, ssshhh, but the aftershocks are becoming less frequent :D About time too!!!

I tried to find a video clip, but perhaps too soon. Not too sure about the ReStart. It caught my attention midway into the program.

The new ChristChurch will be better and stronger, as will the peeps! History and Heritage is created every day! ;):) And yes....ssshhhh

    • Over the past month or so, I have been have a fuzzy feeling in my left ear canal. The best I can describe is it feels like there is a bug in my ear, but when ear is checked, no bug but the fuzzy stays.  Any ideas?  Or is this one of those strange neurological symptoms from gluten?  Please don't tell me you need to get ti checked out, because all the doctors will say is "There's nothing wrong, everything's normal." BLAH!
    • Breakfast on the go is always trickiest for me - I go with a whole fruit - banana, apple - or a yogurt, or a small bag of nuts.  Occasionally, I have a couple of hardboiled eggs at my local pret a manger.  Much prefer breakfast at home, where I can make myself an egg and cheese sandwich with avocado on gluten free toast.  Or cereal ;-)
    • thanks for your input, the reason I do the blood test is because I found out my duagther has it recently and she carry dq2 gene,so must be from my husband or me...im in the process waiting for my genetic test back,,by the way,I do have lots of celiac symptom,so it could be gluten sensitiive you said,thanks again.  
    • No I'm in the UK, from what I've been told that's a good thing for gluten labeling and standards compliance. What you and everyone else on here says makes me sense than what the doctors are saying (a confused message at best is what they're giving me, each one with a slightly different version of it). My referral letter is in the post so on theory appointment may not be that far away. I have a load of my favourite Quorn stuff (non-gluten-free version) in the freezer so perhaps using that up may be a good way to proceed for now. I'm out at the moment and torn whether to try chips from a café, in the strict gluten-free future would probably be a no-no but in current situation probably not so bad...
    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
