Maybe our yeti has gone back to Siberia?? :unsure: Now trending on Yahoo news:

"Bigfoot researcher and biologist John Bindernagel claims his research group has found evidence that the Yeti (a Russian "cousin" of the American Bigfoot) not only exists, but builds nests and shelters by twisting tree branches together.

"We didn't feel like the trees we saw in Siberia had been done by a man or another mammal.... Twisted trees like this have also been observed in North America and they could fit with the theory that Bigfoot makes nests. The nests we have looked at are built around trees twisted together into an arch shape," Bindernagel told the British tabloid The Sun."

Anyone have a nest in their garden?

OMG..............I'm gonna be looking around my outdoor surroundings very carefully from now on....... . . ..for large, twisted clumps of branches....

A nest that would hold our yeti would have to be a fair size. I would know this well, as I was the one relegated to the job of measuring his inseam for Amanda's wedding tux..... . . . .

:lol:

I think the baby Yeti is still in my basement where he hibernated all summer. He should be coming out soon.

Not riding my bike.

OK, 7:05 boat instead of 6:20

7:55 boat

do I have to go.....yes, dangitall.

PeOte--We took a ride the other night and somehow ended up listening to a radio station out of Toronto. (we have satellite, but Mark still likes to fool around with the dial) I think it was 720? Old stuff but enjoyable.

Hi everybody! Haven't been here in ages. :( Caught up a few pages, but not far back, knowing that I could get totally sucked in and lost forever.

Joess....I LOVE, love, love the new babies!

I'm glad that I see some of you on FB, and so am not totally out of the loop. Hoping that you are all relatively well. Hugs all 'round!

HAPPY GOBBLE GOBBLE TO ALL WHO CELEBRATE AND HOLIDAY BLESSINGS TO EVERYONE (THANKSGIVIANS OR NOT).

My boy is back home through Sunday and we go to Ct. overnight tomorrow (and as usual I have walking pneumonia). At least it won't stop me from enjoying the food - just the wine.

Rachelle, extra thoughts, blessings, and prayers to you. You're one of the strongest women I know. Just remember we're all here for you!!!

Love,

Loey wub.gifwub.gifwub.gif

Well.....as much as I hate cooking.....and doubly hate cooking food which I can NOT EAT!.....this Thanksgiving was one of the best. I am pretty much limited to meat and veggies, so I successfully tried 2 new EASY veggie recipes. Seasoned broccoli and oven baked asparagus(with parmesan cheese....yummm)

Back when my diet was less restrictive I would make and enjoy traditional family favorites.....praline sweet potatoes and homemade creamed corn, which I still cook for everyone else.(Oh wait, I made my brother fix the corn :P )

So my daughter made a pumpkin pie and hubby brought home a co-workers home-made sugar cream pie. He also had brought some persimmon puree with which HE made persimmon pudding! (ok....so it took twice as long as expected, delaying the start of the turkey. But I hear it tasted great!)

Let me explain something here.

Brian does not cook.

Ever.

So what is usually a very stessful and painful (bad back in a kitchen all day) event was actually only mildly painful and quite enjoyable.

We were also serenaded with NUMEROUS rounds of the ABC song thoughout the evening by my 2 yr old grandbaby, Alexis :rolleyes:

And best of all, I am reminded that a little over 2 years ago I came close to losing my son and husband at the same time, but they both are alive and healthy today. For this I am extremely thankful.

Doesn't get much better than that.

It sure doesn't. :):wub:

I've been thinking about you, Leeeesargh, over the last little while as I was sure that the horrific stories with Brian and your son were coming to us around Thanksgiving... . .....such a difficult anniversary to acknowledge, but it sounded so wonderful for you this year! :)

Thanks for your post, Lisa - kinda teared me up :( which I guess is kinda psilly, 'cos it won't put the bricks back :rolleyes: I am not going to do the walk or the bus tour - just move on to the future and hope they don't build too many tilt-up concrete slabs with no soul :unsure:

Did they mention the ReStart with our one home-grown fine department store, Ballantynes, which survived a devastating fire in 1947, came through the quake in pretty good shape and is now reopened meeting 100% of current earthquake standards!! on City Mall, with a crazy bunch of shops and little cafes in two precincts created from new shipping containers? Sounds weird but is actually quite quaint :) Life goes on..... And by the way, ssshhh, but the aftershocks are becoming less frequent :D About time too!!!

I tried to find a video clip, but perhaps too soon. Not too sure about the ReStart. It caught my attention midway into the program.

The new ChristChurch will be better and stronger, as will the peeps! History and Heritage is created every day! ;):) And yes....ssshhhh

    • Reality check in the past few weeks, looks like I got glutened at what should be a "safe" restaurant for gluten-free and gone right back to the beginning again recovery-wise Now too scared to eat anywhere and turning down social opportunities because of the food issues, what a miserable way to live this is.
    • Your issues is probably with the carbs then. there is a alternative. best pricing is miracle noodle. For Konjac rice substitute. Konjac flour works with some people others it does not. https://miraclenoodle.com/collections/miracle-noodle-rice-products There is a trick to cooking it but they make no carb noodles, and rice. I use the rice to make all kinds of rice like dishes like my mothers mexican fried rice etc. It does have a tad off texture and flavor but comes close. If your looking for no carb breads Julians Bakery makes some pretty decent breads but you HAVE to toast them to use them. I just found them a month ago....First time eating a bread in 2 year, and first time in as long as I can recall eating one that did not make me feel bloated and fat. No carbs, no sugars, no yeast, no dairy, no soy, and very low sodium...... Been eating french toast, vegan cheesy bread, bread with almond butter and sugar free jam I have honestly been in food heaven since I found it. BTW some celiacs can not tolerate any grains very rare but it happens.    OH and on what I have is really bad Ulcerative Colitis, so I have a bunch of other trigger foods that cause inflammation, bleeding, distention, constipation, gas, bloating etc. Carbs/sugars is a huge one for me fructose, glucose, sucrose.
    • They rotate growing rice and oats in the same crop. I unfortunately am intolerant to oats.  I have Dysbiosis according to a stool test, which is why I am quite sensitive to gluten among other foods.  May I ask what AI you have that makes you sensitive to carbs? I have been in and out of the doctor since November 2016 with chronic pain.  Trying to figure out what is going on with my gut, it's terrifying. I tried Dynasty jasmine rice from Thailand the other day which was recommended in 2009 by someone on here and a few hours later had the worst low blood sugar attack I'd ever had in my life. I am severely underweight due to the pain and I think this happened because I ate a bit too much (I LOVE rice) upon my first introduction back into my diet.  Even so I reacted just as I do when I ingest gluten (intense anxiety/hard to breathe/fast heart beat/constipation/intense pain under my ribs) So I don't think Dynasty is a safe brand, not for me at least. I only react this way to gluten. My other food sensitivities, the symptoms pop up around 24 hours later and are completely different. 
    • Thanks so much for the information. I tried Dynasty jasmine rice which was a recommendation from a sensitive individual on here. The post I believe was from 2009 so there's plenty of time for practices to have changed. I only ask this here again for updated information as I tried the Dynasty brand and got sick. I do not have Celiac disease (according to an Endoscopy) however, I have been gluten-free for 2 years and only ate a cookie or a donut maybe a few times a month for a year and a half before I was tested. I actually like going without gluten as I get less low blood sugar attacks and rarely ever get migraines. Not to mention, before I had the Endoscopy I was fasting for 2 days with no food or drink while I received other tests while I was in the hospital. I also got a colonoscopy at the same time so I had to clear my system out completely. My doctor believes I have a non-Celiac gluten sensitivity due to my symptoms after ingesting gluten. I was diagnosed with Dysbiosis so it could be my body lacks the correct bacteria to break down gluten. I have several other food intolerances including dairy and oats which many facilities process along with rice.
