Enjoying the A.C right now.  The real trouble starts later into the afternoon.  The heat kicks up thunderstorms, and there is a risk of losing power.

I'm doing both the Rotary Auction and The Ovation production right now.  Weekend days spent in a large room full of dishes... evenings spent on a platform in a little closet that smells like teenage boys.

I have chicken stories...

 

Two moms with chicks two weeks apart.  I looked in the coop last night to see if mom and older chicks were already roosting and no longer using the nest.  Discovered the silkie (mom with younger chicks) up on the roost and the other hen on the nest with all the kids.  Older kids are so big that just their heads fit underneath and their backsides stick out.  It looked so weird to see a white hen sitting on a black feather pillow that I stared at them for probably five minutes before I figured out that it was a chicks butt coming out from under her chest.

I wish you could all be teleported!!! Em & family have been in Mass. since Wednesday. Poeter & Jacquie left this morning. The rest of us are heading up tomorrow. We're meeting for dinner at 5 at Joe's in Peabody (giving you all the details in case anyone decides to take an unplanned trip). We will hijack the restaurant with our psilliness. After rabble rousing til closing we'll get some sleep before reconvening for brunch at the Fireside Restaurant in Brookline section of Boston. There will be much laughter, tears, and hugs (and hopefully plenty of picture's. All of you will be in our thoughts and conversations.

Love & (((hugs)))

Even chickens like to hire a baby sitter occasionally!

Eat some good food for me in Boston! Will be expecting pictures and some tales of raucous behavior!

This can be the First Annual Psilly Psummit to be followed by many more (perhaps Ellen will still answer Em's email). You will all be sorely missed  :(

 

P.S. Poeter & Jacquie arrived safely.

Trust me you will all be missed!!! We will all drink a toast to everyone who couldn't join us.

We're on our way to Boston as I type. I hope this will be the first of many Psilly Psummits!! We couldn't have done it without Bev. She found and booked our dinner & brunch. And we were all staying in different cities. No easy feat!

Check for updates!!!

Love & (((hugs)))

I have three of the plump little meat chickens left (for another month anyway) and two of them are roosters.  Well, two roosters is too many in most chicken books and these guys decided to have it out.  Picture two sumo wrestlers wearing chicken suits stomping around in circles.  They managed one circle, puffed up their neck ruff, then plopped down, because standing is way too much trouble....

Chicken reality is so much better...well....maybe not for the chickens.....

 

I am afeared of what will happen when the Tom turkey reaches sexual maturity.  The little silkie rooster could be in for a tough time.

Hi dear psillies, hope you're having a wonderful 4th of July!

Judy (Lockyer) wanted me to let you all know she's having surgery tomorrow. She would appreciate prayers, positive energy or any other good thoughts you can send her. She didn't feel up to posting (and also didn't want to post something unpsilly here). She misses her Psilly pfamily.

Love,
Loey

    • Me too. I still get transient lower back pain occasionally when my bladder or colon is full. It goes away immediately on voiding. Regardless of anything other diseases you may have, being wheat free gives you relief so even if not Celiac you are Non Celiac Wheat Sensitive. There are over 200 symptoms that are improved with GFD gluten free diet. Google it. It is an impressive list. In any case, while it is good to have a diagnosis, there is only one treatment, do not eat wheat and deal with the inevitable malnutrition damage.(think Biafra babies 1970.) Most will improve over time. Whatever doesn't improve should be investigated to be safe, but realize that recovery may take years. Wheat flour used should be limited to Paper Mache sculpture and library paste.  
    • Here is a partial list of what I no longer suffer from as a result of not eating wheat. Some like the sleep apnea and gerd and back pain and addiction to alcohol were almost immediate. The foot pain is improved to just numbness sometimes. My long term depression went away when I added vitamin D 10,000 iu a day for a year, but the improvement started almost immediately. Muscle tone and energy improved when I added iodine. one sheet sushi seaweed a day. My Fibromyalgia is controlled with 15 mg oral Prednisone a day. I remember as a kid waking up and having to pick the dried mucuos off the roof of my mouth. That is gone and for the first time in my life I am a nose breather. Drink lots of water to help with the mucous if it is thick. Some mornings mine is like rubber cement. I need to quit smoking now.  You can improve have faith, but healing takes time. Stay the course. A Romaine lettuce salad everyday helped the gut pain. Gerd shortness of breath sleep apnea back pain snoring prostrate hypertrophy contact lens protein buildup night vision improved cataracts reduced head hair growth foot pain sleeping no more than 2 hours at a stretch slow healing no energy. Pretty much bed ridden. 
    • Celiac Disease is damage to the nooks and crannies in our intestines leading to malnutrition, vitamin deficiencies with all the various symptoms that make it so hard to diagnose. Then you add years of the antacids, antibiotics, Tylenol, opioids, alcohol, etc., each with their own particular side effects and damage. Now you've got a toxic environment that kills off the beneficial bacteria increasing malnutrition. Theoretically you can eat anything except gluten. But wheat is so ubiquitous in our diet and economy there are unlimited opportunities for cross contamination. So read the label. Use common sense. If there isn't a label it doesn't have wheat so you can eat. Big Food likes to add wheat to everything because it is addictive and helps them ensure you can't eat just one. Why on earth else would Campbells Tomato Soup have wheat listed as an ingredient? Meantime your body is in distress from malnutrition so you need to be sure to replenish D3, and Iodine for starters and treat and support any other symptoms while you heal. Good nutrition without wheat is the only way to stop progression. And just like chewing paint chips made with lead is bad, so is food with wheat.   well said, doesn't need a label.
    • We use pure cherry juice with our snow cone machine. Makes for a nice dessert after dinner.
    • Hi Kurasz, How's it going?  Any change for the amazingly better?  Or slightly better?  
      If not, hang in there, and keep praying! :)
