Lol, this is VERY random, but I needed to share this with someone...

 

When I was driving, I saw a bird carrying another bird that looked like it in its claws and flying away from crows, trying to attack the bird in the claws :(

 

Lol, I'm stupid... But seeing this just made me want to cry.... WHYYYY DO I HAVE TO BE SO FREAKING SENSITIVE/EMOTIONAL!?!? Lol.

That sounds so sweet! Probably a young bird. The crows can be soooo mean and attack the baby birds and eggs. I have been known to go after crows and train dogs that like or dont care about birds to chase crows. I know that is just what they are made to do, but they don't have to do it in my yard!

I think you are very sweet to be so concerned, (hey, I cry at the sight of road kill, so I get it)

but Karen is right. It is likely the bird was rescuing it and I am sure they were both fine.

Crows are obnoxious.Loud and rude....and  I shoo them off all the time.

OMG!  I get all upset over road kill too!  I always feel sorry for the poor whatever that gets killed....especially if it's a deer.  And yes, I do like to eat venison but I don't kill them myself.  I'm such a hypocrite....... :wacko:

Crows actually chase hawks away and for that reason I like having them in my trees.  Saw them chase away a small hawk that I believe got one of my baby turkeys.  Hawk hasn't been back.  A few days ago I saw (heard, mostly) a crow way up in the sky dogging an eagle that was perusing the open buffet that is my yard full of chickens.

 

I happily share my chicken treats with the crows. :)

    • If you're going to continue to push for a diagnosis stay on gluten! A break could lead to a false negative. It's a lot harder to go off it and then go back on...   
    • I still prefer steaming, but I wash my white rice throughly.  I purchase California rice which has a lower level of arsenic.  Moderation is key to most everything!  😊
    • I eat pretty much grain free just fine, I eat fats instead. But on a side note I posted some specialty and grain free options as of late in the food alternative page where I list companies and food product alternatives. I honestly just welcomed bread back into my life, I found a company that makes grain free bread out of nut flours. Given you have to toast the dang bread to use it well but seems to work decently. Pasta there are carb free versions out there, and there are ones made with quinoa, buckwheat, or other grains, I even know one company that makes nut flour based ones. You can get these gluten-free options and avoid the rice. As to levels of arsenic they do test foods for these, and all should be safe, the trace amounts and the sheer amount you would have to eat to get effected is staggering, a bit of rice will not hurt you regardless if your concerned I know gluten-free watchdog does arsenic testing on products you could check and find the "safest ones" for your concerns.
    • I've forgotten them, just remember the good stuff. Weekends in Baja or Vegas or up Pacific highway to see the Redwoods and Frisco. Watching the sunrise at Mount Soledad and watching it drop into the Pacific in the evening. Carne Asada Burritos on Garnet* Solana beach ale* Gorgeous women entranced by my exotic accent, humboldt county weed, raves at the romper room, *1.99 are you out of your mind Denny Breakfasts, Christmas on the beach, *Beers in the gaslamp quarter. I need one of these                                      * which by the power of my imagination have magically become gluten free     AANNNYWAAY... Arsenic in rice. Yeah. 
    • Oh, it definitely struck me as very odd! It also says "no significant increase in intraepithelial lymphocytes". That's their favorite word I guess!  My blood work pre-biopsy also showed increase lymphocytes and my primary doctor said it usually means increased inflammation. Doing all the things I can now---filing a complaint, I've emailed my doctors to tell them I'm upset and don't think I received proper care, I'm in the process of trying to see a naturopath that diagnosed a friend of a friend w celiac. I'm going to see if i can get the other blood work done with them---and I've been gluten free for a week and a half!
