Sue, you're bound to get way more snow there in ski country than here with us flatlanders! When you go to Portland, have you ever eaten at either Hugo's or at Duck Fat? The chef/owner of both of those restaurants grew up in my town, and is one of my friend's brother. AMAZING food, we were treated by him for a 7 course meal, wanted to take pictures of it rather than eat it! It was scrumptious.

Where do you sing? What type of music? Do you remember the country music star (older one) that could barely talk due to his awful stutter, but could sing beautifully, no stutter whatsoever...

Ann, you might substtute artyichokes for the anchovies for a morning breakfast.

I'm pleased to report no signs of snow out the window -- just mud and a driveway that is rutted. There is a sign of green grass in places on the lawn. Yippee, spring just may be on its way to SD after all.

Kimberley, you fry the chicken in a tiny bit of oil, about 1/2 tbs. I supposed you would call it stir frying. I never deep fry food and use hardly any oil in my cooking.
Helen I just went to a book sale and got a travel book on Boston. Can't wait to read it. Mt facial was sticky and I didn't really enjoy it. Won't do it again.

I am exhausted from lack of sleep with a smashing headache, my glasses are broken so I will take them off and won't be able to read maybe Hubby can fix them when he gets home from work. It's his last day today .

See you all, well type to you all soon.

So we did the specialist clinic thing. Smashing clinic. Difficult visit. I just wanted to run away by time they were done with us. And now the tears are flowing. Someone put that darn kettle on while I compose myself, or try to.

Thanks for the recipe and talk of scrumptious food. Love to you all.

Oh Jellycat, sorry, sounds like you have had a very trying time at the clinic. Thinking of you and your Mum. I will put the kettle on for you and have a nice chocky biscuit as well.
Got my distance specs on ao hope not too manta spelling issues.
Clinic visits are tiring and mentally disabling! Give yourself and your mum a hug from me .

Thought you were going to say that you can see me with your long distance glasses! Thanks for the tea and chocky biscuit. Just right. I need the sugar today.

Default Re: Come For Tea

Jellycat, I'm so sorry to hear that your visit to the clinic with your Mum was so hard... I find them very difficult, as I don't think too much about the bad potentials until they start talking about the choices I get to make...

You know what I find most difficult right now? When I run into someone, especially at my kids' schools who I haven't seen for a while.... it's always, what's with the cane? What's going on? Happened to me yesterday morning with a dad that I've know since our kids were 2 years old. They're well meaning, but I just can't get into it, and invariably, I'm tearing up 5 minutes later (if not sooner). I don't want to say that I've been diagnosed with this, especially as my boys do not know the name of it yet. So I just say that I have some neurological problems with my legs and leave it at that. Wish it were only that.

I'm going for my morning mug of tea (its a huge mug, no little tiny cup for me!) and a slice of the yummy lemon cake I bought from... WALMART!
Have a good day everyone, it's still snowing here. Tired of it, but it is prettier than the mud and dead looking gardens and lawns! Like white frosting on all the trees.

Avril, I want to hear all about the visit, but only when you feel like it. Hugs across the ocean for you and the Club Cervical President.

Helen, I used that way out--I have a neurological problem--they won't get the ALS meaning anyway, and it'll drain you having to tell everyone you meet... and then that's all they want to talk about in the future. Ha, I only told good friends, knowing we can talk about loads of other things.

I look forward to my coffee! Still in bed, Phil doing his stuff and will get me up momentarily. If he comes in, I fly off the computer so he doesn't have to wait--I think that's the only thing now I can "do" to be of help.

Aly, thinking of you. Don't starve and get weak...please. Hope your glasses can be fixed by your hubby!

Club cervical president, that's a giggle. I love your sense of humour( hate it when the spell chech throws in the American spelling for humour). Anyway. After much searching, Sam remembered he had put my other pair in a cubbyhole hole in my car, so 10 pm he found them. It's a relief cause I want to go to the beach house today and stay the night. I was going to havecto go to the optometrist first.

April fools day yesterday, so Sam had put books in Hubbies pillow and a mass of cardboard under his sheet, so that he would get a surprise getting into bed. He did not come to bed until 11 pm, so Sam was still awake waiting forvthe reaction, it was rather funny. I didn't know you could fit that many books in a pillow case!

Helen, I get asked at the MND meetings I attend, whether or not I have a relative or what's my connection with it. I say, I am a volunteer and helping on the committee. Can't say thatvi have a MND, rarely rare, not too bad blah blah blah.
When I did the injection training last week and ceased up at the patients house, then struggled big time on her stairs, I saw the look on thevpatients face, and just said I had a neurological problem that is not Ms and change the subject. It's been difficult with my trial patients as I have seen them every month for 4 years and they noticed the limp. With them I have been honest. None of them have the slightest sign of MS, except one has a spastic gait. They are all great, I did burst into tears when talking to my youngest patient, he was being really nice and it was all too much. He is a Christian, so he took my hands and said let's pray together, which we did . He was only 26. !

Well it was 4.30, better that yesterday's 3.30. I an about to have a nice cup of coffee and breakfast.
Avail, I hope things are feeling a bit better and you sleep well tonight.

Helen I got the book on Boston for just $5 in the sale. It was weird there were more books on sightseeing in Boston than any other city. Calling to me maybe . Autum in Boston here I come ? We shall see.

Well, I want you all to know that (this is a tea thread--and all foods tend to pop in) Clarence Birdseye, while a fur trader in Labrador, learned about those flash frozen fish the Inuits caught (some were alive months later when thawed), which eventually led to his learning to blanch and fast freeze vegetables. (Invention and Technology, fall 2010) This is of grave importance to me (lol) since Phil brought canned peas home from the store and defended his action a couple of weeks ago. His own magazine credits frozen vegetables as more like fresh... and he gave me the argument (oops! I meant article!) to read himself.

Good morning -

Aly, if you get thrown in jail and get one phone call - well, you know who to call! Seems the moderation court has been frequented by a lot of upstanding forum members lately so perhaps it is the next fad in life. If you don't go there, you aren't posting enough!

Sunshine with blue skies and puffy white clouds -- white clouds beat white snow!

I need to call the cemetary in Pennsylvania today and find out what it takes to have Mother's site dug to put her ashes beside Dad. I have been putting it off since it is another reminder and will awaken the grief again. Called "burst of grief" by grief counselors, and normal, but none the less painful.

Inquiries for summer guests are picking up - that is always good so after the talk with the cemetary folks, I'll respond to the inquiries that came in from France and England during the night. Already have an Aussie group booked for September! Seems like the foreign travelers are discovering the Black Hills.

After all that - well, I'll check in and see if you are still in moderation court, Aly!

Ann, canned peas, YUCK! Without reading the article, I know that!

Ok, so can I do Boston and south Dakota? I really want to vist America properly, while I am still running about. I can put on sad eyes, quivering lip and do the poor limpy me. Trip a few times, fall over,graze myself ( do that anyway) cough and splutter and my other half will do anything I wish. Well I have never tried, but feel sure I could be a spoilt brat and go on a tour of the States. now there is a thought. Will ask him to come as well, cause I need him so much and couldn't manage on my own.............would need lots of leg room...........fly business class........oh I can picture it now ( evil smile ).

Aly, and Joni, just tell me when your coming and I'll have a room ready! Wouldn't that be fun....

Kay Marie and her son were here last June for some R&R.

Better hurry before a buyer comes along that is willing to give me my price and I sell.

The business is getting harder and harder for me -- it was fun when I could be the one "doing" and not the one sitting and watching someone else do. Know what I mean?
