Please get some snuggles in for me. Found out today I have a heavy duty case of Epstein Barr to add to my list of ailments. At least I know why I nap so frequently.

Hugz,

Loey

Questions... are all these issues side effects of something else, or you just that lucky?

Epstein-Barr is Herpes 4, and one of the most common viruses among humans. It is much more

likely to affect those with compromised immune systems. So probably a lot of things are linked

for Loey :( I had the shingles a few years ago, again more likely to surface when you have an

autoimmune disease. Hope you haven't had the shingles Lo! They suck! Take lots of nappies!

Asked hubby to help me remind kids to clear their dishes from the table and keep their stuff off of the kitchen island (hairbrushes, library books, school id . . . ). I said I was starting my new year's resolution early . . . to keep the kitchen table and island clear of clutter.

Hubby: "Oh, like last year there would be no dirty dishes in the sink overnight?"

Me: "I said that?"

Hubby: "Yes."

Me: "That doesn't sound like something I would say."

Apparently the "just deny it" resolution stuck.

I put this fake green pine garland on my indoor stair rails for Christmas. I have decorated it with some icy looking branches, lights and a few glass Christmas tree ornaments. When I put them up, 3 of the balls always detach from the top cap and fall and break. This year, I laid them out on the dining room table and glued the glass balls to the caps while still attached to the greenery. A blue one was hanging off the edge. Gracie calmly whacked it and it fell, shattered and Gracie calmly walked away. I think I need to get the plastic " shatterproof" balls ones and replace them.

Welcome to the holidays according to kitty....our first Christmas with Shelby she removed all the ornaments from the bottom quarter of the tree and would pop out from hiding behind branches of the tree to swat at us if we tried to rehang them -- my toddlers (now teens) never created such mischief :P

We discussed this at dinner. M pointed out that we have always hung the non- breakable kid ornaments at the bottom due to large dog tails so we should be good.

Hey wanna see something cool - well if you are interested in medical advances -- a friend of mine is working on this "tumor paint" molecule to help neurosurgeons find their way around the brain - if you have about three minutes check it out and vote the video up as it is some sort of chance of running for Sundance -- oh there are a couple gooey shots :ph34r:

Shadow

Did the kitty present have catnip/catmint by any chance?

We had a pretend robin on the tree one year, and saw the cat do that crouch down butt wiggle, but we were the other side of the room and could do nothing to prevent the demise of the robin.

My Mum's cat used to tap some little bell decorations and ring them.

Great idea - need to pick up Advent candy today - am going to look for some bells for the bottom of our tree!

Thanks Mw :)

Very cool. I voted for it! It's amazing the things they can do these days in medicine.

Not as far as i know :) She normally got a sealed can of treats and a toy.

I've still got this head cold thing going on. Looking back on it, previous times when i've had this type of cold it would be a lot worse. Perhaps this is because i've been feeling soooo good since the diet change and all that jazz? Not to mention, i don't weigh nearly as much as i used to (used to be pushing 190, now am at about 130 at 5'4'', rather proud of that i am), maybe that is a factor. Who knows :lol:

Now if we can just get them to devise a test to gauge our reaction to gluten in a petri dish rather than by challenge or measuring antibodies in our blood I'd be a very happy camper :P

Oh wait...a bit of a magic wand waving in the general autoimmune realm would be appreciated too :D

Oh and maybe doctors could get more than 6 minutes of nutrition education...now I'm living in the land of make believe again.

oops not funny page rant - sorry :wacko:
