"The Other Woman"  is a great name for a sailing blog.  I have seen one or two boats by that name.  A gentleman's ship is truely  a mistress.  Um, maybe a good thing? :rolleyes:

That means all of our wonderful Psilly men are "The Other Man"

You guys are so nice!

 

Here's my first post:

 

The usual thing is to start out with "test test" or "hello world" or some other mundanity, but I'm  not up for that.  I'm just gonna hold my nose and jump and hope it all turns out alright.

 

I suppose the first order of business is to point out the the first woman is a sailboat.  I know, there went 90% of my readers but they would have figured it out anyway the first time I posted a picture of "her naked bottom" and they realized:

  1. We scraped the bottom paint off the boat and she isn't too stimulating when naked and 
  2. The humans involved are actually plump and middle aged.  And will likely never appear naked in this blog.

Ok, so no nudity and we're all happy about it. Then.......what's the point?

 

Well...I want to track my journey.  Part of this will be the sailing thing and part will be whatever sort of random thing seems to be connected with the sailing.  Since we aren't yet on the water much of the early blogging will be random and probably introspective. 

 

I do want to make this fun for anyone reading, partly because I like to be entertaining, and partly because I'm just an ordinary person who had this wacky idea that she could dump her life and do something completely different.  I want other ordinary people to realize that they can do the same.

 

I hope you'll keep reading, and I really hope I'll keep posting.

This is the 3rd time I've written this post and lost it before I sent it! You better not stop blogging or posting because this is NOT ordinary (it's awesome like you)! It's well written & hilarious. How many women get to ride on top of the mistress with their hubbies?

(((Hugs)))

Okey dokey.  Giant chickens have been stuffed into the freezer.  "Ha!" I here you say.  "Just how giant could they be? They're just chickens!"

 

Well, my skeptical friends, the roosters were so big that they had to go into 2.5 gallon bags and my freezer barely closes. The hen is crammed into a gallon bag that can't possibly close but she's in the frig and we'll roast her on Tuesday.

 

Sadly I have no scale so I don't know how much they weigh, but they are hefty and pretty much fat free.

These guys were destined for the table from the start.  They're bred to grow to (beyond) full size in three months and they aren't really healthy.  The hen's liver was already in poor shape and the boys had these weird, long hearts.  Their joints just can't handle the weight of the birds and they would waddle a few steps then sit down.  Well, plump down.  It was kind of a controlled fall.

 

I decided that my options were to either give up meat entirely or participate in the process that brings it to my table.  Harsh, and I don't like it, but I'm not yet willing to become a vegetarian.

Good morning, and welcome to August.

Back in the day, Nikki would do a first day of the month post, but she hasn't been here in months.

Woke up this morning to find (well, Jacquie found it first) a "present" on the bedroom floor. One of the cats caught and killed a mouse and left us the trophy. Riley had been after something in the kitchen recently, and we set out some traps after finding evidence, but the traps remain unsprung.

I am wondering if there is a correlation between cats and celiac/NCGI??

My cat died on Friday, under 10, no obvious reason :(

She was a useless mouser. I once saw a mouse run between her front paws, and she didn't even notice.

There do seem to be an awful lot of them about here.

This seems totally beyond possibility, but you made my brain go out of normalcy. WTH?

Cats and celiac disease.

I probably had celiac disease at a low level for decades before it flared up big time in August of 1995. Diagnosis did not come until July of 2000--five years of celiac hell.

On July 1, 1995, our first cat adopted us. A long story, but he was lost and wandering and we took him in--intending it to be temporary until we could find where he belonged. It turned out he belonged with us. :wub:

But now I wonder: was the timing a coincidence, or was there more to it?

And even if it is so, it won't change my love of the cats who allow us to share their home.

Hahaha, always glad help freak someone's head just a little bit, especially if it involves cats.

Ours was a rescue cat, who I knew was coming to live with us as soon as I saw her little face on the website.

I hope some new cats choose us soon....

Took our puppy to the vet last night... he has been having problems walking and stuff... he is 14 or 15 years old (was a rescue so do not know)... dx was arthritis... not sure how much time we have left with him... our son has only known life with our puppy around (we got him the year before our son was born). Gonna be rough when the time comes. BUT for now, got him some narcotics to try.

I'm so sorry to hear about the loss and illness of Psilly pets.....they have been a HUGE part of our lives in Psillyville, right from the start.....  ..Dogs, cats.....even a yeti....and I do wonder how he is faring -- do yetis get osteoarthritis?....Do they get taken in as strays, and put up for adoption?....Quite a commitment, that...        :rolleyes:

Well the puppy is acting a bit younger on the narcotics. At least he is not falling over when going potty and can shake himself out again. So I guess that means it was a good call on the drugs for now.

Definitely no cat involved with the Celiac here, I've been terribly allergic since birth.

 

 

As to the yeti, he's sore and creaky but moving better then before. ;)

http://southbrunswick.patch.com/groups/police-and-fire/p/police-respond-to-mvc-after-man-refuses-to-remove-pas250cc0dc13#comment_6446963

 

At about noon on Feb. 2, South Brunswick Police responded to the MVC facility on Route 130 in Dayton on reports that a man renewing his driver's license refused to remove the pasta strainer he was wearing on his head for his license photo, according to a police report.

 

According to the police report, an MVC employee told Williams that it's against policy for people to wear head coverings in license photos, unless it's for religious reasons. 

"As a Pastafarian, I believe the universe was created by a Flying Spaghetti Monster," Williams said. "The strainer is a showing of my devoutness to the religion."

    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet. Welcome to the forum!
    • I have microscopic colitis. Having a bad flare of D.  On Budesonide for first time for this. It's helping some- only on it a week. Do you think gluten free would help even if tested negative a few years ago?  Was gluten free yesterday and no BM changes. Even had cramps this AM that wasn't really having before. Thank you!!
    • Do you want to tell us the name of it ans where it is located.  maybe someone else will be looking for a restaurant there. Also, it is very helpful if you go to Find me Gluten Free and review it.
    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.
