We have a full bloom going on our rose bush...not sure what kind it is, but it finally warmed up in Northern California (but it's probably not cold compared to there!).

Spring is quickly departing and we are heading into summer here in Southern California.  My daffodils, freesias,  and iris are long gone.  Some Camilla bushes are still in bloom.  My fruit trees (apricot, Valencia orange, lemon and plum) have stopped blooming and already have fruit growing.  I should have tomatoes in a few weeks if we get fewer classic May Gray or June Gloom (ocean breeze weather pattern) cloudy days.    I spent many hours this spring weeding.  The winter rain helped my fruit trees after years of drought but also helped the weeds to germinate.  

I can ride my bike without arm warmers or a vest/jacket.  But that means riding with sunscreen slathered on.  I bought some “sun” arm sleeves and hope this will reduce my use of sunscreen but I am not sure if I will get too hot.  Short rides are around town to the pool or market.

I used to live in San Clemente and then Laguna Niguel when I was a kid and have great memories from down there.

Around here (SE Ohio), The dorkydills are mostly done blooming.  The Red buds are blooming and the trilliums in one spot along SR 690 that I always check for them in spring.  Some pears are starting little fruits but some haven't bloomed yet too.  Tree leaves are out though and I mowed grass for the first time last week.

My ducks are getting bigger and have their baby feathers now.  They grow fast.  Several more weeks and they'll molt and get their adult feathers on.

My brother Johnny is preparing his garden area now.  He won't start planting anything until Mother's Day though.  That is usually the last frost date.

Hi Scott,

I've eaten duck eggs in the past and didn't get sick.  So I suppose they are ok for me.  But then again I eat chicken eggs with no problem either.  My ducks probably won't start laying for another month or two.

I had car wreck today so may not be on much for a few days.  Got some neck pain and such like but nothing major.  Doc said to take it easy for a couple days though.

    Hi Lfortson, I assume you are on the gluten-free diet?  So no wheat, rye or barley?  That's good, but there are about 10% of celiacs who react to oats also.  So you might want to get rid of oats for several months and see if things improve. Another somewhat common food issue is dairy.  Some people can't digest lactose (cow milk sugar), and some can't digest casein (cow milk protein).  So it might help to eliminate all dairy for several months also.  Almond milk is a possible substitute
    Thank you for all of the suggestions and information.  I will see a lot of the symptoms that I have that I didn't mention listed caused by lack of certain enzymes.  I have blood tests every 3 months. That is when I noticed my cholesterol, etc. not in check.  I eat too many carbohydrates because it causes less diarrhea than a lot of vegetables.  But in talking to 3 of my sisters they are already on medication for the problem.   One has Celiacs the other has Sjorgrens which I also have.  I'm conce
    For the fog and memory, it can be many things, the brain requires certain ratios and amounts of fat to function, it also requires b-vitamins the full spectrum among other amino acids, minerals and vitamins, nerve functions require magnesium, potassium and other things to fire right.  Celiac can hamper the ability to break down and absorb nutrients, digestive issues and enzymes can further complicate this, and trying to eat the right ratios of foods.
