Amazing that Canada is having temps like these.

 

Actually, not amazing at all....in fact, southern Ontario has very hot, humid summers -- often in the 90s with a significant humidex. Yep, we ain't all in igloos....   ;)   Don't retire here ..  .....June through October can be uncomfortably hot...

 

 

Now, the Yukon...well, 'tis another story...

Amazing that Canada is having temps like these.  And here I was thinking of a possible retirement place to avoid the extreme heat when I get older!  ^_^

 

It is very hot here in Boston but the humidity level is at 49% also...which is drier than it's been for awhile.  I thought it more bearable today than the past week because it was like soup outside then.  I detest humidity.  It's gonna break, poeple, this coming week-end so hang in there everyone! 

 

Hi All...Have to join in as I still aspire to retire up North....Montana near the boarder...or Vancouver Island....yo Pete...how do I defect?

I rarely use my iMac since Superman gave me his iPad. When I post with the iPad I don't even see the options for size, fonts, emoticons, etc. I miss those features but I'm lazy. Plus I can't sit at the computer for long (mostly laziness). Loved the cookies (doh!).

Hey everyone! I found the Yeti! Apparently he has found employment doing the voice for Garmin. You know....usually you get a woman's voice telling you to "turn left in 1 mile". So my husband recently discovered he can change the voice and one of the options is YETI!! I kid you not :P

And Garmin is based here in Kansas! Is the Yeti here? Just working for Garmin and living in the neighborhood?

So this is my last morning in the 5-star hotel in historic Philly. I am finally to the point where I can walk around and find necessities (like Starbucks) with out looking at my phone map. Its been interesting, and I definitely learned that you do not need a car if you live in a city. I parked my car in the garage the afternoon I arrive and have not pulled it out since. This might be the longest stretch in my life with out driving since getting my license... well not count my honeymoon cruise. smile.gif

IT has been interesting for sure. For example this AM I was standing on line a Starbucks and a woman walked up to me to tell me that she is scared of werewolves. Yeah... So I guess that is information I needed to know. Not sure why, but maybe I should document it some place just in case?

Maybe you can write a book about it...

Been out fussing with the feathered fiends.  The tom turk keeps attacking one of the hens and he's so big I'm afraid he'll hurt her.  I picked her up to protect her and he followed me around, staring at her.  I put the chickens back in the pen and left the turks in the yard for a while.  They kept flying over the fence and finally one of them flew off into the woods where she stood on a branching saying "ummmm...hey....um.....mom?....hey".  Eventually she jumped off the branch and tramped through the underbrush back to me.

 

Once the chickens put themselves in the coop I shoved the turks back in the pen.

 

Now I'm drinking.

 

I think it's time to do in the meaties -- the roosters are becoming more aggressive towards each other and I don't imagine they'll get much bigger.  They're already huge, mammoth when they stand next to Mulberry the tiny little silkie.

 

Did I give you guys this link? http://www.infobarrel.com/Blackberry_Vodka

 

I'm drinking the plum version of that.

OK, I'm starting a new blog to journal the sailing stories and I'm calling it "The Other Woman". Whad'ya think?  It's kind of a play on the joke that a woman has to realize that her man's boat will always take the majority of his time and attention.

 

When I have a few entries I'll post a link on fb.

    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
    • Why yes it is! jmg and myself are NCIS, I mean NCGS specialist/experts or is it NCGI people ourselves. posterboy,
