Wow...alot of reading tonight.

Just stopping by to say hi to everyone in R-ville. Monday's always suck and I'm really tired from lack of sleep. Time to crash out now.

Susan...you lucked out...no science today. ;)

Be back tomorrow though. :)

Its getting cold here now...I think it might be right around Rachelville's temp....85 or something close to it. I *need* heat. I hope we can get back up to at least the 90's (and soon). Yesterday....working in the yard all day and I didnt even break a sweat! There was hardly any sun...it even sprinkled on me for a few minutes. :blink:

What happened?? I miss the heat wave. :(

Yes, I know that I'm in the minority here... :rolleyes: Thats why I have my sauna in Rachelville. WHOOHOO...I love the sauna!!! :D

Megan is doing so well!!!! This is awesome. I'm getting more excited with each update. :)

Hi how is everybody doing?

Im still alive.

Thanks for your caring and concern, and advice that you wrote.

I have been working a lot and trying to figure things out.

I cant stand my job and im thinking about leaving the profession and changing carrer goals all together, from nursing to communications/consulting/psychology/?.

It seems like you guys are doing well on a low histamine diet? I havent considered that. Correct me if im wrong, would like to know if thats working. I know its prob not that simple.

I heard that people are safely eating nuts?! thats nuts! which ones

I was sent into a period of hell a few weeks ago which I think was due to peanut butter, advil, and concentrated fruit juice that I was drinking.

I had also had some vodka- absolute, and I think that was bothering me too.

Greygoose doesnt bother me, but the cheaper ones do.

Im still not sure why I was in so much pain, but the fruit juice didnt help at all.

Also the hospital salad bar and their food makes me sick all the time, and I was eating a lot of salad, with ranch dressing.

enough said. I feel better than I did then.

I started seeing a counselor to help me work through my pain and emotional issues, relationship, career, I saw her today and see her ever week for 6 more times.

Shes nice. but expensive 100$ a visit! which i pay in cash.

Im just reaching out and trying to make myself stronger, more finacially and emotionally independent and tanning and exercising and trying to look good, feel good.

The stress the relationship puts on me is unecessary, but I still care for him, we are just different personality types he is my opposite.

I took the myers-briggs personality test, through a book I got and it said that I am a ENFP,

extrovert, intuitive, feeling , percieving,

and I think he was a Introvert, sensing, thinking, Judging,

the exact opposite.. lol :)

I think I love psychology and helping people and consulting and jobs like that geared more towards being a catalyst for change in peoples lives.

Nursing is so constircting and routein and you get poop on all the time, like a slave, I cant stand that part anymore.

I bought several books including "Do what you are" which is based on the mysers-briggs personality test and its matches my personality pretty well. I still feel like I need to become a nurse so I can live and make money, but I dont want to go into the wrong direction either and try to be somthing Im not.

right now I cant stand the hospital im working at, theres a lot of drama, too little pay and too many patients for one person yet, I find it boring and tedious, if I have to take one more set of vitals im going to flip out!

any career advice you guys have would be great!

love you all, Christine

Lynne:

Thought that we need to educate all others that are not Southern Girls GRITS- Girls Raised in the South.

For instance:

When, I posted about "putting up corn" Susan was all over me "like white on rice".

A few hours later a strong thunder storm came through .. it "was raining like a cow pissing on a flat rock in a rain storm".

After, we werrrrrrrre sweating "like a ho in church".

And on and on and on.

Southerners aren't dummys, just a little sly ( actually, I was born in Bergen County, NJ). :P

And just what would that job entail........ :huh:

From Mitch:

The job would entail the proper dietary maintenance which results in a better quality of life. The individual essentially would be self appointed gluten free experts. This would be a life long hobby but for those who consider it a job, it would be moonlighting.

My mouth is watering ...

Lisa; I know what you are talking about, hubby and I just did that a week ago tomorrow. But you have a step I did not do, we just cut once so your corn will be MORE creamy than ours. My recipe called for butter but I use no fat. It sure is good...but we earn it. we got ours free from a farmer neighbor, do raise your own? We did last year & may again next year. Sooo goood!! We have a man cook on TV here/ cooking show who says it that way..cute :) later, evie

Lisa -- doesn't matter where you were born, it matters where you spent most of your LIFE. You're southern. I'll gar-on-tee it!!! Have said the "sweatin'" thing for as long as I can remember . . . "white on rice" . . . say it just bout every other day . . . cow . . yep . . . also say "chaps my a**" . . . don't know if you say that one . . .

Speaking of Grits (not the girls raised in the south-type) -- have you ever had Garlic cheese grits??? Best thing you've ever had . . . guaranteed. And I'm not the typical "grits with every meal" southerner!!!

So sad . . . we have an orchard that is actually in southern Indiana, but it has the best food in the world . . . Fried chicken, mashed potatoes, corn, green beans (cooked the right way) home-made potato rolls, all served family-style and for dessert: homemade pies --especially with whatever fruit is in season . . . I told Dave that I really MISS that place!!! Don't know how many Perkinje cells would be destroyed if I went there just ONCE . . . . I'm already in a wheelchair . . . I mean, a few more dead cells couldn't be THAT bad!!!!!

Well, going back to Bridalville . . . goodnight all in Rachelville . . . talk to you tomorrow!!!

Lynnie - - good luck with THE WEDDING.....hope y ou are feeling great and looking fantastic that day! Best wishes in getting through all of that - - it will all be over soon!

I want the garlic cheese grits...badly....

Does it make me suth'n if I say "he was all over her like a hobo on a three-day-old ham sandwich" because I say that a lot.... :P

RAchel - I think we all know when you're feeling better, NO SCIENCE POSTS! :rolleyes: I'm a little concerned with all the ice cream you're eating ;) ....holy cow, you do not want to become intolerant.... :unsure: what would you do??

Christine, good to see you again! Sounds like you're making some positive steps....I don't know where you live, but you might also want to look into affordable counseling...there are places (Catholic Charities is one) that work on a sliding fee scale, there's a great place here in town that uses interns from the UC San Francisco psychology program, I went to a gal there FOR FREE for a few months, and she was fantastic. Keep at it, girl, just let yourself get strong, it does take time.

what else....forgot everything.....reading again......

oh my gosh, I'm all by myself now....so sad....see y'all tomorrow!

:) Hi everyone. Wow, so much to catch up on.. Yeah, maybe Ryan should be John Boy-Vincent is more the ornery one-was that Jim Bob?

OMG-Corn shucking. We used this little square wood board thingy that had a nail in the middle that we put the end of the cob on and first cut the corn then scrape it to get the milky part out and yum indeed. I have to say, though when you are looking at six dozen ears of corn, you do feel a bit overwhelmed. It is a great feeling when you have it all put up, though. Good job, rinne. We always would freeze it. Freeze the corn, can the green beans, can the tomatoes-in the heat of August ugh. I now only grow herbs, flowers of all kinds and tomatoes. Love the farmer's market, though.

Christine, follow your heart-if you are working at what you love it will never feel like work. I am glad you have found a good therapist, although pricey :blink:

Susan--I know you want a Southern guy, I guess Aussie's are waaaaay Southern !! I want to see your jewelry too!!! I do the elastic -scrunchy type bracelets, too Donna!

evie-Cat woman! :P I have done the gamut of crafty things too. I am never bored, there is always something to decorate, paint, re-decorate, plants to care for, seeds to grow.....on and on.... I got one of those round loom things for a Christmas last year and made so many hats that no one I know will ever have cold ears that is for sure. I am still hoping and praying for a studio, though for my true love -clay. :)

(not clay aiken--the stuff you sculpt!!) I tell Zack--boring people get bored.

Smoking-wow, cecila-I am one of you as you know from our "smoking section" thread. I quit for a couple of days, go nuts, get sick as a dog with cramps and D, and pick them back up. I need to feel stronger and get a handle on this food thing. Tavi, I am so proud of you to be able to quit in the midst of this illness. You too, Rachel.

penguin--Take the class, you are SO not too fat!! I have seem major pork-queens belly dancing. It is about the sultry dance and the exercise-you will be wonderful. Charge it on his visa and catch the mail before he gets the bill-one of my girlfriends swears by this method. :lol:

Weight-I need to lose, and my sons both need to gain. It seems like they have just as many struggles with gaining as I do with losing. Miamia, you are lovely, my dear. My son has been hurt by rude remarks about his thinness and I just tell him-insecure, ignorant people feel the need to ridicule others to feel good about themselves. They are to be pitied. Regarding kale and spinach-I seem to be getting sick from both, and turnip greens too. There IS something to this histamine problem. I hope you can tolerate them, though since they are so healthy.

Cissie--I miss you!!! :D

Nikki-I 've been wondering-what do people think of Prince Charles and Camilla? I read an interesting article in last months' National Geographic about him and really was impressed with his farming practices in Wales. I actually gained a new respect for him and for his position.

Wonderful Dreams everyone- OOps, I mean Y'all :D

Southern phrases--omg, I was getting ready for bed when it hit me that I have to ask if anyone has ever heard of this word--Gom -pronounced gahhhm. Used to describe a mess. As in, "You kids better not make a gommy mess in there!" I grew up with that word and was wondering if anyone else's family used that. One of my friends had an uncle who used it, but other than that, I haven't met anyone else who knows that crazy word. My husband thinks it is an Americanized version of some old English word that is obsolete. Anyone???!! Weird, I know. :blink: This has been a quest of mine for awhile :P lol.

Lynne, I saw that commercial too and thought immediately of the float!!! That isn't the weinermobile I remember!!

Robbin -- it has gotten remarkably larger. Wonder if they knew about Rachelville and the altoids parade???

Haven't heard of the gommy mess, but my mother was the resident expert on cyclones . . . as in "your room looks like a cyclone hit it" . . . . living in Kentucky, I DON'T think she ever experienced one, but she sure knew what the aftermath looked like!!!!!

I'm loving this education in Southern Slang,my particular favourite so far-

After, we werrrrrrrre sweating "like a ho in church".

I think the British public have warmed (slightly) to Charles and Camilla.

I think it's because he really does have his sons best interest at heart,and has shown a more caring ,less stuffy side to himself.

Camilla?-Well she's never going to be loved by the public like Diana,but it's clear that Charles and her love each other,and according to the press Prince William and Prince Harry get on well with her.

Prince Charles is quite outspoken about organic farming and is very 'green' in all his ideas!

I've mellowed out on the ice cream a wee bit....still eating it...just not in mass quantities. You know...cutting back but not giving up entirely...like eating 8 nuggets rather 18! :o

Good morning, y'all . . . Gettin' ready for another day in Brideville . . . . the wedding (I think) is going to be so nice . . . but, doing this on a limited budget --means that I am making SO MUCH of the stuff. Today's menu: Card Box (have to pad with quilt batting --have material that was on Ashley's Madrigal Costume -- it's gorgeous -- can't think of the word/type -- but it's white with silver thread design -- then embellish), Have to do the ribbons & porcelain roses on 36 tapers (just found out YESTERDAY that the hall provides taper holders . . . ) and the flower girl's basket . . . need to put the "finishing touches" on it . . . found a beautiful sheer ribbon with tiny pale pink roses and sage leaves (dimensional) on it . . will put that on the handle (same color pink as are going to be in Ash's bouquet -- along with white), then will put sheer sage bows on the sides, with porcelain roses (tiny) in the center. THEN . . . need to do the tapers for the cake table . . . and the Unity Candles. Tomorrow's agenda: Lighted tulle to place around the cake table and on the bridal party table, and 18 Pew bows . . . . then, I think I'm finished until Friday. Friday morning is pick up the cakes, cupcakes (we're having a lot of children there -- so we have a white 48 cupcake tree -- it's pretty cool. We're having the cupcakes iced with sage green icing, and a single white rose with a slightly darker sage leaf) and the flowers. Need to beat the flower stems and stick in buckets of water, then make the boutonnieres and possibly corsages that morning/afternoon and the bouquets that evening. If ANYONE in Rachelville can think of something that I have POSSIBLY missed, PLEASE PLEASE let me know. I am so afraid that I'm going to have forgotten something, and then am going to be in a spinach-load of trouble.

More southern sayings: They were all over (him)(her) like flies on spinach . . . Don't know if this one is southern, though . . . as nervous as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs . . . . and don't listen to him, he doesn't (pronounced dudn't) know spinach from shin-ola. (Also, the older folks don't say "ho" --- they give it the good old long version!!!) Some of the older folks get the "swoles" -- swollen feet, etc. during the heat, and when the Good Old Southern Baptists faint during church because the spirit has taken them, "they done fell out" . . . . .

Have a good day, Rachelvillians . .. would you be mine, could you be mine, won't you be my neighbor???

Toodles,

Lynne

Also, black eyed peas and hog jowls on New Years!

You should start making afghans. they're just like scarves, but bigger. I learned how to make them first, then scarves.

My next obsession! :lol:

Donna, you're going too - - yay! Yes, decorum and civlity, but with some smirking and giggling.... :P

Yes I'm going...already paid for registration and yes, decorum, civility and a lot of smirking and giggling. :lol:

yeah but how do you do it for MORE than one post you want to reply too...I just get lucky sometimes and keep prematurely posting to different ones, but I type so quickly that they just keep adding to the one(s) I did (if no one's posted after me).

I copy whatever I want to quote--like just one paragraph...before the paragraph you type

and at the end of the paragraph you type [/quote ] (but without the spaces between the e and the ].

I shucked on Saturday (really, only one ear, but still shucked). :lol:

Been wondering how you were! Hang in there, it sounds like you are on the right track. I just started a lower histamine diet yesterday, so it's probably too soon for me to tell, but I can say that my legs didn't itch quite as much as they did the day before...could be coincidence or the placebo factor, but whatever, makes no difference, they didn't itch as much. :lol:

I made 4 more last night. :ph34r:

:lol: Sorry, but that just struck me funny! I LOVE your new picture by the way.

Thanks!! And it is funny!! At least you struggled with Bumble bars thats kind of an inbetween. Healthy but sweet. But spinach is really th eon;ly thing on the histamine list I eat and everything else bothers me so I avoid it- Bu tI love me some spinach!!!!!! I'll be the official town popeye.

Catching up.

Ahhh, creamed corn! Love it; hate to make it. I don't mind the shuckin' or the slicin', but the scrapin' - Lord have mercy, what a mess! That corn milk flies all over the kitchen! And, yep, you must use bacon grease, not just butter.

How does this Southern meal sound: A cup of pot likker doctored up with pepper sauce and lemon juice; turnip greens cooked with the all-important salt pork (It gives the pot likker the right flavor.); creamed corn; hot cornbread dripping with butter; green beans, cooked for hours with more salt pork; Whippoorwill peas and okra; fried chicken; sliced home-grown tomatoes; sliced Kirby cucumbers and sliced red onion in vinegar; spring onions; and radishes. :):):) Have I left out anything? Oh, the Whippoorwill peas are tiny field peas that turn brown when cooked. They start "coming in" in August.

Here's a Southernism: "She don't know me from Adam's house cat."

For all cooks who like to read cookbooks, I have two suggestions. "White Trash Cooking," and "Sinking Spells, Hot Flashes, Fits and Cravings," both by Ernest Matthew Mickler, with pictures by the author. The pictures alone are worth the price of the books. :lol:

Lynne, the wedding will be lovely!!! Did you mention the Guest Book table? I probably just overlooked it.

My husband is full-blooded Italian, from Bayonne, N.J. He and his sister and cousins used to have me ROFLMAO at their stories of Italian "Football" weddings! :lol::lol::lol:

Also, black eyed peas and hog jowls on New Years!

Oh, Lord yes, girl! And turnip greens! :P

Be well!
