If they tasted like cucumbers, you had "Mouse Melon", which is "Melothria scabra", and a natice of the American Southwest. Looks like tiny watermelons.   Does this look like it? http://www.underwoodgardens.com/Cucamelon-_-Mouse-Melon-Melothria-scabra/productinfo/V1041/
Yes - Lantana.  Fast growing, heat tolerant. The berries will give humans some serious indigestion.   In your climate, they are annuals because they can't survive freezing weather. You might get them through the winter if you have a sunny window and they are in pots.
  What other trigger? An infection by a wild-type virus.   So they claim, but they have never allowed anyone to check the medical records of their patients, verify the claim of zero autism, and publish the results. If it is true, they are withholding information that is scientifically valuable that could prevent a lot of suffering. What are they hiding?     That sort of study would never get approved. It is unethical and reprehensible. The study's organizers would have to...
  Many factors that lead to higher rates of autism diagnoses have been identified. But they are not something you can do much about, whereas "teh toxins" work well as both a scape goat and a bogeyman.   http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/autism/DS00348/DSECTION=risk-factors Old Parents: http://autism.about.com/od/causesofautism/a/oldparents.htm New mutations:...
  Have you heard of "Huntington's Disease" ... people develop normally, hitting all the milestones until they are in their 40s, then lose physical and mental abilities.   And, there is doubt that the development was 100% normal - http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15362172  Although several studies have documented the validity of parental reports of regression using home videos, accumulating data suggest that most children who demonstrate regression also demonstrated...
Is it this?  A common, rather gross-looking but harmless slime mold.   http://www.google.com/search?tbm=isch&hl=en&source=hp&biw=1152&bih=721&q=dog+vomit+fungus+slime+mold&gbv=2&aq=1&aqi=g2&aql=&oq=dog+vomit+fungus 
raspberry, crabgrass = No substitute for digging them out by the roots because they can sprout from underground runners. After you get the large plants and think you have it all, water well and stay vigilant for more sprouts.   goldenrod, thistle = Slice them out with a weeding tool, making sure to take out the base of plant below where the leaves come from.   As you clear each section, cover it with several layers of newspaper and something for a thick mulch to...
I could dig out the references if I had to - it's probably somewhere on scienceblogs.com  - but I vaguely remember reading some research done on babies and toddlers who were exposed to a multi-lingual environment.   Search for this on Google:  Language acquisition in bilingual children    Found some good parent-level articles : http://iteslj.org/Articles/Rosenberg-Bilingual.html http://www.kidsgrowth.com/resources/articledetail.cfm?id=1229        
This has nothing to do with training the dog, but:   http://www.cchdwi.org/store/index.php?app=ccp0&ns=prodshow&ref=SA-DB200    Put the phone to Vibrate.
My neighbors subscribe to a CSA, and they are saving money on fresh produce. They gave us their pick-up coupons this spring when they were travelling and it's like a veggy grab bag.    It is easy to find out what to do with the things in the CSA box. The farmer labeled things and all I had to do was google for the vegetable name and the word "recipe" and see what came up. Then I picked based on what sounded good, feasible, and what else I had on hand - because there is...
