You sound like you have the flu. Occillo?

I don't even really know what the concern was. (I've had time to process it, and am taking it with a grain of salt,) because someone on the Sustainable Living listserv said something about an article in the Weston Price magazine, which apparently isn't online yet, because they don't put the articles online until the magazines sell out. Well, that and most of their articles about cooking tell you TO use stainless steel.

It just seems to me now... that if it was really such a horrible threat, wouldn't it be the responsible thing for them to get the information out there, and not worry about magazine sales, or is that just me?

Considering the source, (WAPF) I don't know if I would believe it without a REALLY substantial bibliography.

Uh, I have a nickel allergy. But I love my stainless. If I'm not reacting to it I can keep using it, right?

Well I am wet. I just had to pick all my grapes from the back fence... on the street side. The boys next door were picking them and throwing them at people, and getting them all over the street. It's one thing when people pick them to eat.. but damnit.. don't waste food to throw!

I will be spending tomorrow making jam and maybe juice... I still have the grapes on the inside of the fence.

Oh and DH just bought a car for $188. So it was nearly a straight trade.

I might be able to get our school! but it's on Sauvie Island, want me to ask...??? for little, little cost...
Yes, check it out! It might be worth it to drive a bit for an inexpensive venue. Thanks!

Indeed.[TM]

Both children in the bath. Washed Sprogly in spite of his strenuous objection, but trust me, it was time. The excuse was that he had paint all over himself, which was true, but which actually bothers me less than the smell.

Pizza is in the oven. Not doing it on the stones, just in a pan. I'm swooning with hunger.:

I can't drive DH's new car either. : I can't push the clutch in all the way.

"People with nickel allergies should avoid cooking with stainless steel cookware."

Crap. Having lots of health challenges...maybe this is part of it.

Karen, I can check with Mt Tabor Presbyterian Church. Not the most aestheically pleasing space (church dining room) but LOTS of space and a kitchen. Will let you know.

Stupid *&(^( maintenance right when I'm about to post. *(^*^

OK, I started a new thread for cake party planning, just to get it off the various threads and into one spot. I'll edit the first post as needed.

Dishman Community Center's auditorium is available on Nov. 22 at 4pm, but it will cost $250. *sigh* Please, please, does anyone know cheaper alternatives that can hold ~75 adults+kids and allow food???
the UPSTAIRS at liberty hall is big and awesome and has a stage and holds 200.. and its CHEAP.

Liberty Hall link.

Well, sh!t. Woke up an hour ago with some kind of reflux thing, still awake. Lovely way to start the week. I've got a bunch of extra stuff after work to do this week, too. This is really all I need.

Welp. Guess I'll pull out my book. Anyone still awake, think sleepy thoughts for me.

Wasn't there some kind of dance troupe who had a class right before the cake party and got the floors all gross and sweaty too? Maybe we can consult a schedule? I wasn't there but heard about it.

Todd's employer is really starting to annoy me. We STILL haven't been paid, and I need rain gear. I re-discovered the reason I don't like that wool poncho for rain... it is just way too loose a knit, and the rain just gets in anyway. Not so good as rain gear, then it gets stinky and itchy on top of it.

So... once again I have to drive today. I think I might just beg him to take something out of savings so I can ride this afternoon instead, because I worry that I'm going to completely lose my will to do this if I go too long.

That was a different place - Village ballroom . . .


I've been doing some strength exercises in the mornings with small free weights (yay me!) and my arms are just killling me. It's a good pain but ouch! Better get to it while Sophia's still asleep. She does not like it and does everything possible to stop me.
post #255 of 1618
Yeah, same with Ruby. She also hates the stroller, so really the only way I can get exercise that she seems to approve of is to ride the bike or strap her to my back and take a walk. Although she's starting to get too heavy for the latter. I thought my ribs were going to fall apart the other day when she was back there too long.

That's good to know about the village ballroom.

Do you have to do something/activity when you get to where you are going? Why do you need to be dry? I only wear a rain jacket to work when it's cold and thermal pants. My stuff dries at work but if you just go straight home you can change your clothes, right. I understand that if you are going to go shopping, drink coffee, or hang out with friends you can't do it dripping wet but otherwise it's just water. I know getting wet sucks, it really does. I guess I've just gotten used to it.

Not every day, right??? 'Cause you should only strength train every other day or less. Your muscles need about 48 hours to recover. Cardio (walking, biking, aerobics, etc.) you can do everyday, but not strength training.

Well, not every day, but there will be days when I will. Mostly, I can't stand to have a wet back, and it would be wet for a good hour and a half because it's 45 minutes each way, twice a day, so I would need to change clothes when I got home, then either get another outfit wet, or put the wet clothes back on when I went to pick her up. All in all, 3 hours a day with a wet back = not my idea of a good time.

I was at NS the other day and they were watering their hanging plants which are above the bike racks. They have some kind of hose system and it just soaks them for a while. Well, I also got soaked trying to get my bike out of the rack. Could not get that key to work fast enough. The ride home was pretty annoying.
