    Why am I not at all surprised the first thing these silly useless girls wanted was to start their own club and kick those cootie infested boys to the curb.

    WordPress says I am the first to comment. I will believe it when I see it posted.

      Fox News should have paid attention to what happened when Coca Cola tried to reinvent itself to be more like Pepsi.

      What FOX did election night was planned. What the hell did they think would happen? I hope a handful of FOX executives go to prison for conspiracy treason.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I think election night was just the last straw for a lot of us who put FNC into cold storage with a click of our remotes. The liberals on the panels were just too insufferable and they were showing up a lot. What’s worse, Fox seems shocked they’ve lost us.

        • Constance says:

          Oh! And remember their bullshit suppression polls. F fox news and all their other channels too. Supposedly they don’t know what to do, well hey, why don’t they buy some integrity? Oh yeah, it’s not for sale.

    I guess they like the khaki uniforms better than the green? The Boy Scouts are bankrupt so they need all of new recruits they can get, and I guess they think it’s easier to add girls than to recruit more boys. Financially, the Girl Scouts are in much better shape. They can ride out this infatuation some of the mothers have with enrolling their daughters in the Boy Scouts.

    • Somebody says:

      My two youngest granddaughters joined the boy scouts. They did one year and were done, they were actually done before the year was over but my son made them finish the year. The oldest preferred to join the girl scouts and she has really enjoyed it. Her younger sisters decided they prefer the girl scouts after all, but right now there are no scouts thanks to wuflu🙄

      • elliesmom says:

        The girls in the Scout troop I led were 12-18 years old. Most of them had started in Scouts in Daisies or Brownies, but I picked a few up here and there who were Scouts for the first time. One of the first things the troop did was raise enough money to outfit the troop with camping equipment. We had enough of our own tents, cooking equipment, lanterns, etc. for the whole troop. The girls only had to provide their own sleeping bags, and I had a source that would buy a girl one if she couldn’t afford one. As the girls in the troop aged out, new girls joined so the troop was self-sustaining.

        We went camping lots of places that involved travel, but we also had access to an unimproved campground owned by the Boy Scouts in our own town. We just had to tell the fire department we’d be there, and often the girls showed up on their bicycles.Not much advanced planning needed and very little expense. Sometimes I coordinated with the Boy Scout troop to be there at the same time. Sometimes we all showed up accidentally. Often it was just us. While the girls had fun the weekends the boys were there, too, they really liked the weekends it was just us. As they put it, they were free to fart. Those weekends in the woods that were just young women left them free to try new things and maybe fail at them. They could be silly or serious. They could laugh together and often cried together. When the boys were there, too, the dynamic was very different. I don’t have a problem with a coed club that does the kinds of things scouts do. I just don’t want girls to lose their girls-only organization.

        • Somebody says:

          The boy scouts here own a nice piece of land on a big lake that feeds into the St. Johns river, they own other properties too. I don’t know if the properties are owned by the national boy scouts or regional, but it’s prime land that would no doubt fetch a high price. OK technically it’s an inlet and not a lake, but around here we’ve always called it Doctor’s lake. It’s 13.2 square miles and spits out into the St. Johns which is 2.5 to 3 miles wide at that point. So the Vista from this property looking across the lake and river is breath taking. If the boy scouts are bankrupt and need money can’t see them holding on to prime property like that.

          The girl scouts own property south of there. They have a camp there, no million dollar views though😉

          On Amelia Island we have our own Central Park. The girl scouts own a small cottage there in the park, that’s where they hold their meetings. Local charities do maintenance for the girl scouts, they pay no taxes and the county covers the electricity and water for them.

          My granddaughters went camping on the lake with the boy scouts, but my son was required to go. The girls and their families were in a separate area than the boys. They were in a more primitive area of the campground, but participated in the daytime activities. In the evening they had to do their own campfires, etc. My son was required to attend all meetings of the boy scouts with his daughters and go to all activities.

          Contrast that with the girl scouts. You drop off my oldest granddaughter and return at a set time to pick her up. She’s been on two camping trips, one was at a girl scout camp up in Georgia. She went by herself with the troop leaders and both times they stayed in cabins. Oldest granddaughter has LOVED everything about girl scouts except one event.

          The one event was a Christmas play last year downtown in our little town. It’s combined with a local theater group, the scouts are supposed to be extras and participate in carols. Local seamstresses make the costumes and locals do the girls makeup and hair. My oldest granddaughter is gorgeous, like could easily be a model. She was stunning, like mouth agape stunning in her costume. The girl that did her hair and makeup did a fantastic job, granddaughter could have stepped onto a Hollywood set.

          The director found granddaughter breathtaking and made last minute changes to give her a roll and speaking part. My granddaughter literally threw up and started crying. The director didn’t care he wanted that stunning little girl front and center in a PR shot of his production. He would not back down. When my granddaughter was forced out on stage she jumped off the stage and ran down Center Street which is our Main Street🤣🤣🤣 My son did manage to snap a few pictures, don’t know if the director got any🤣🤣🤣

          As beautiful as she is and she is that’s not just grandma pride, other people see it too. Anyway as beautiful as she is, clearly modeling or any kind of public appearances are not in the cards for her🤣 So much for my beach condo and comfy senior years on the back of my granddaughter🙃 But there is still hope, the youngest looks exactly like her older sister and youngest would have taken that stage by storm😉

          • elliesmom says:

            The Boston area Girl Scouts own several gorgeous properties. One is on Cape Cod and another in New Hampshire on Lake Winnipesaukee. They had a sailing camp on Martha’s Vineyard, but accessing it by the ferry made it expensive for the girls so the Scout council sold it for a small fortune and are using the money to keep the other camps up. My troop camped at several of the camps, including the sailing camp before it was sold, but booking into one of them took advance planning. The Boy Scout land was just a piece of property. No buildings, no facilities except a pump for water. But a phone call to the fire department and we were good to go. The girls could decide at a Wednesday night meeting they needed a break and wanted to go camping that weekend.

    • Constance says:

      My ex coached children’s soccer for many years. There were always a few parents who wanted their girl to play on the boy’s team which aggravated my ex. In younger ages and really until age 13 or 14 girls mature faster and grow faster. He would get so frustrated with the 5th grade boys who can’t listen, he would scrimmage them against his 3rd grade girls and year after year the boys would get their asses kicked because they are ball hogs and compete with their own team for the ball, can’t focus on plays or even play concepts and they don’t have a physical advantage yet. So he couldn’t figure out why anyone would want their girl playing with a bunch of hyper active twits randomly running around.

        I love that Shayla loves me. I do not hide my flaws The moms have all bought me Christmas mugs. Kate has 5 kids. 5!!!! The brats get me yelling when need be i take action. Uncle Tim is a cunt. I say cunt. I got my kid and her friemds. I sit awake until 4 making sure my girls are tucked in. I have no issue running up the street barefoot and saying get your bony ass home. The girls can hate me I do not care. I feed quesidillas as I fill tortillaRs with cheeses and peperoni. I feed these girls. I fed. I fed.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I think the ladies doth protest too much. As the tweeter said, it is the girl scouts with extra steps. I enjoyed being a girl scout in the primary/middle school years and I don’t remember coveting stuff the boy scouts did, we built bird houses too 😀

      I have no inside information but I wouldn’t be surprised if Shelby and Grassley didn’t run given their age. Shelby is currently 86 and Grassley is 87, in two years they’ll be 88 and 89, their terms would stretch well into their 90’s. Their egos may induce them to run, but I think they should retire

    She says the president’s ‘own people are misleading and undermining him’

    Powell told The Washington Examiner that her access to Trump has been cut off since Friday, when the president reportedly floated the idea of appointing her to serve as a special counsel to investigate voter fraud — which was an idea shot down by some of his advisers.

    I’m home from my adventure. Clearly I survived😉 Right now I’m numb so I’m fine, not sure how I’ll feel in a few hours. Once again they had a devil of a time, lots of bleeding, hence why they wanted me in OR. They cauterized and stitched me again to stem the tide. Since this was a skilled surgeon, highly skilled with an outstanding reputation, I’m hoping it’s not quite as bad as last time.

    They only did biopsies and cytoscope to check urethra and also looked at my bladder since the tumor is so close to that area. For some reason I have restrictions like no driving and no lifting anything heavier than a gallon of milk for two weeks, seems odd for a couple of biopsies but OK.

    The staff said I was the funniest patient they’ve had in years…..so maybe I have a future in stand up after all🤣.

    The OR was cram packed with people, so much for social distancing🙄 I had to sign a bunch of releases. This is a teaching hospital, so residents, medical students and a couple of seasoned doctors were in attendance. They all signed up for the “freak show”. As I said I have an extremely rare cancer so this was a teaching experience. My surgeon’s father has written a lot of papers regarding this cancer he’s a leading expert or was. If/when I ever have my surgery I hope it’s bring your father to work day😉 His son trained under him and is also studied on this and skilled at the surgery. Many women come here from other areas or they did to see dad and have him operate on them, but he’s basically retired. He consults and is a part time professor and guest lecturer.

    Anyway, I’m unique🙄 Less than 3% of women get this type of female cancer and my type represents less than 2% of those cases. So they had plenty of people wanting to be there. When I have my surgery they may have to rent out the stadium🙄🙄

    Apparently they sat me up and the group sang Happy Birthday to me in the OR. Don’t tell Dr. Fauci🤣 Mind you I’m butt naked with a sheet draped over me and in stirrups😳 They asked me afterward if I remembered and I told them I didn’t, but if they filmed it and put it on porn hub I expect a cut🤣

    They rolled me into recovery, surgeon went out to talk to hubby. They told hubby I’d be in recovery about an hour. Once I woke up they immediately gave me a drug cocktail via my IV for the ride home. I asked for my clothes. They said Mrs. X you just came out from under anesthesia and we’ve given you a strong drug cocktail you should just lie there for a bit. In about an hour we’ll take you to the bathroom and if you go successfully and are not too light headed we’ll discharge you. I still feel the burn of the stuff running up my veins and I tell them, yep I need to go potty. They’re like oh come on, I’m like gotta go potty totally serious. They help me stagger to bathroom. I manage to squeeze out enough to please them. I said I’ll sit right here hanging onto this bar and you bring me my clothes🤣 They were like you are one hot mess lady, you should lie down for a bit. I said no, no trust me I’m a tough old bitch bring me my clothes and tell my husband to fetch the car. They called the anesthesiologist, my vitals were fine she said I could go. I was dressed by the time she got there.

    Hubby had just gotten in line at the coffee shop when his cell rang. He said they told me an hour it’s been five minutes. The nurse said, she’s your wife sir I’m sure you understand. She’s already in the wheel chair, she refused to leave the bathroom unless we put her in the wheel chair🤣 Hubby said I understand, I’ll get the car, bring her on down🤭 They told me, when you have the actual surgery you’re not going home you’ll be with us a few days Mrs. X. I said we’ll see about that and the nice young men whisked me off and down the golden elevator. I snickered all day at the one gold elevator that takes you to surgery unit, totally random and Trumpian.

    So I’m home for the holidays, but my 2021 is going to start out pretty crappy apparently.

    • Somebody says:

      The drug cocktail they gave me twice today is freaking fentanol. I thought that stuff was dangerous, they scoffed at me they are professionals after all. I see why people take it, buzzzzz

    • elliesmom says:

      Use the restrictions to get some pampering. You deserve it. I electrocuted myself on a faulty waffle iron once, and a very cooperative nurse let me dictate a list of restrictions for the next two weeks. She signed off on them because women deserve time off now and then. And Happy Birthday. I’d say have a glass of wine from all of us, but I’ve heard it doesn’t mix well with fentanyl. 🙂

      • elliesmom says:

        And thank you for checking in.

        • Somebody says:

          EM has your daughter decided if she’s coming and when? I know your son and DIL are coming tomorrow.

          We’re doing take out tonight, my son and grandkids are coming over. We normally do breakfast after the Santa reveal at my son’s then come over here for prime rib and trimmings. Son is handling breakfast this year…..might be eggos 😉 I simplified the menu for here, hubby, my son and youngest daughter are going to do the cooking. I have all the pertinent recipes sitting on the buffet. They each have assignments, I’m the supervisor😉

          I just now thought of something, my oldest daughter is an excellent cook. She could cook everything no problem. I wonder if that might be part of her deciding not to come down, she didn’t want to be the chef.

          • elliesmom says:

            My son and his wife will be here for dinner tomorrow night. My daughter and her family will be here on Sunday. My niece is going to stay with her stepmother for awhile on New Year’s Eve so my brother can come to visit me. I could go see him, but he needs a break from his wife. She has severe ptsd, and he’s her caregiver. Everytime she gets hospitalized he heads for my house, and as awful as it makes me sound, it’s fun to get him all to myself every once in awhile. He’s 9 years younger than I am so our relationship has never been one of rivalry. Ellie and I have a couple of Secret Santa stops to make Christmas morning, and then we’ll have a quiet day. One of my dearest friends is coming for a weekend of serious baking after the holidays. When she was here in October, she asked me not to bake ahead of time so she could help. She discovered yeast, and I have created a monster. I kind of like having it spread out like this.

      • Somebody says:

        I’m on a no alcohol restriction for 24 hours because it doesn’t mix well with fentanyl

    • DeniseVB says:

      Glad this part if over for you, now we wait 🙂 I may keep you company. Looks like all that MRI and Catscanning looking for bloodclots last Oct picked up a couple of spots on my lungs. Pulmonist not too concerned, going to retake some pics in Feb to decide on biopsy or not, or just something to watch for the rest of my friggin’ life 😉 Couldn’t help but think of RBG’s lung cancer diagnosis while they were looking for other stuff. I’m not worried, she died from the other stuff.

      • Somebody says:

        Voter mom put a link up for fenbendazole which is for rodent pinworms. It’s legit, it was discovered by accident at Johns Hopkins. They were doing research on mice they gave glioblastoma except the cancer wouldn’t take in one group of mice, that group was being treated for pinworms with fenbendazole, the researchers were like holy cow.

        Research immediately commenced and is now in phase two human trials and showing great promise on several fronts.

        The link VM put here is a doctor that was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and basically sent home to die. He poured into research and decided to try fenbendazole and various vitamins. His cancer is now gone. Obviously your mileage may vary, cancers vary greatly what works for one often doesn’t for another. However, fenbendazole is fairly safe. If there is no contra-indication with anything you are on, I’d consider taking it and the vitamins. You have a couple of months before your scans, they might be like hmmmm where did it go🤔

        If I had known about it in October when I got the first biopsy I would have started taking it and maybe I wouldn’t be in the pickle I’m in. Although I can’t find where it has been used or is being studied with my type of cancer. Once I’m through this I will probably take it a couple of months but in the lower maintenance or preventative suggested dose, just in case there are any stray cells.

        Hopefully though the “spots” are nothing. My FIL got them all excited about spots on the lungs, he was a lifelong smoker. Turned out to be nothing. Same with my mom, she smoked when she was younger quit in the 60’s but a scan for something else showed suspicious spots a little over a year ago. They went right after exploring it, turned out to be nothing.

      Welcome back home! I’m relieved to know how your surgery went and that you are back so you can tell everyone what to do this Christmas.
      Your birthday/surgery was/were the first thought I had when I woke up this morning.
      Happy birthday and good recovery! ❤️

    • foxyladi14 says:

      Happy birthday Somebody! ❤

      • Somebody says:

        Thanks for the birthday wishes guys. I’m really doing fine, which is clearly a reflection of the surgeon’s skills. What he did today was very similar to what the gynecologist did in October, except he took one biopsy today the surgeon took 3. The gynecologist couldn’t go very deep, the surgeon absolutely did and did so on purpose and took much larger tissue specimens. They both ran into issues, had to cauterize me and stitch me.

        It’s not like I am unaware I had this done, but my pain level is far less than before and bleeding is almost non-existent, last time OY! It has to be due to the skill level between the two. Last time the first 3-4 days were tough. Right now I feel like I felt a week and a half out from last time. So I’m hoping the big surgery goes well too. I know it will be way more involved with a much longer recovery, but hopefully not as bad as I am fearing.

      a sense of humor comes in handy in a teaching hospital. Especially when they are all in lab 🧪 mode and you are the one under the microscope 🔬.

      Glad everything went reasonably well and give us the address where were can write suggesting they start a new trend with a bring you Dad to work day and suggesting a date that just happens to correspond with your schedule.

        That’s sweet. It’s always nice to find out your secret crushes crushed you back😉 In my adulthood I’ve found out 3 of my secret crushes were crushing on me too. I found out about one of them before hubby and I started dating and I dated the guy briefly. What wasn’t to like? Hot guy, hot car, rich parents and grandparents, super popular in high school.

        Gotta say as a date, meh. Don’t know about anything other than kissing, but again meh. Freely admit, I hung on through the holidays because I wanted to go to his parents Christmas party in their mansion on the river, shallow yes. Figured I’d score a decent Christmas gift too, once again shallow, but I was right…..jewelry😁 However, he was not my type, we got along OK, but he was really conceited and arrogant.

        I discovered the truth about my other two crushes years later in my 30’s, quite by happenstance. One of them owns a contracting business and was doing a major renovation on my brother’s workplace. He saw my brother and immediately asked about me and confessed his crush😍 He called me and begged me to meet up with him for lunch, but I declined. He was still single had been busy building a pretty successful business.

        The other one I found out about through a former neighbor that was BFF with my crush in high school. He said OMG, I know you! I was best friends with X(I knew that), you know he had THE biggest crush on you in high school. I was like really? Isn’t that sweet, then did a happy dance later🤣

        It is nice to know you were noticed though, so good for Al. How sweet Patrice kept his drawing.

          I got a Christmas present from a secret admirer freshman year in college. It’s a simple gold rose on a delicate chain. I never found out who it was from. It drove ED crazy whenever I wore it. Yes, my daughter does still have the portrait of Weird Al. I don’t know if she’s let him see it.

    • elliesmom says:

      My daughter had to submit a portrait as part of her portfolio to get into the arts program at college. She did a charcoal of Weird Al. The head of the art department literally squealed with delight when she saw it. That’s when my daughter knew she was applying the right place. Both the grandkids have been to see a Weird Al show. He’s right up there with JoJo Siwa for Crash.

        • elliesmom says:

          We have places around here where you can go for a test with no appointment. Before you put Shay through the trauma of thinking she brought the virus into the house, you might want to get a test. If your fever is a symptom, you should have enough of the virus in your system for it to appear on a test. I didn’t react to your original comment about having the virus because no one I know who has had casual contact with someone with a positive test has come down with the virus. It appears to take more than casual contact to actually get the virus, and there are a lot of things that cause a low grade fever. Don’t put Shay through hell. Get a test. ❤

            I am not scaring Shay. Shayla is scaring Shay. I might just have allergies. Mine are awful. It is ten degrees then 50. Rotting leaves kill me. I get bronchitis.

Do i carry their immunity?? I test positive for Hep C .there is zero trace in my blood. I have antibodies but not Hep C.

          Tim look up Eastern Virginia medical school protocol for covid.

          Get yourself Quercetin, this is the only item that will be a bit of a challenge to find but Amazon carries it. Take 500 mg twice per day.

          Right now this minute take vitamin D, 2000 to 4000 iu once per day, take 500mg vitamin C twice per day, take one super B complex per day, take 75-100mg of zinc per day, take 6-10mg once per day at bedtime and take 81-325 mg aspirin per day unless contraindicated by daily prescriptions you may be on.

          If you really have covid they suggest you also take 150-200 ug/kg Ivermectin once per day for two days, but that requires a prescription unless you buy the apple flavored ivermectin horse paste which some doctors are actually taking themselves, but if you have it I’m sure a doctor will prescribe the human medication.

          This protocol works, it works better when taken early. My brother got sick on Saturday afternoon, couldn’t break his fever. He was tested, rapid test was positive and they did deep nasal to confirm. He got deep nasal swab results on Sunday afternoon. I dropped off enough of this protocol to last him 20 days in envelopes along with a copy of protocol. His doctor offered ivermectin prescription but he passed.

          He had been unable to break his fever and was getting worse. He started on the protocol immediately upon our delivering it. 6 hours later his fever broke, the next day he had a slight runny nose. Tuesday he felt completely normal. He remained on protocol for two weeks, but one week out from being positive he tested negative.

          Today my anesthesiologist told me she had covid back in August. Her daughter was sick, was tested and they tested her too. The next day she had a low grade fever and was feeling sick. She had already started her daughter on the protocol. Her daughter was feverish and sick for 4 hours. She felt fine by the time she got her positive results. The anesthesiologist started the protocol the next day when she too was feeling sick. One hour after starting protocol she found out she and daughter were positive. 6 hours after starting she felt fine she said. She too stayed on it for two weeks but was only sick for 6 hours.

          On another blog an extended family 10 of them got it, they all used this protocol without the ivermectin and all recovered in hours or a couple of days except one. The guy’s cousin would not take all the pills insisted he’d be fine. He ended up in hospital got remdesivir, felt better was scheduled to go home the next day and had a massive heart attack in the middle of the night and died. Cousin’s in-laws in their late 80’s lived with he and his wife, they had it as did his wife. They all took protocol and recovered. The parents it took 4 days for one and 5 for the other.

          If you look up the protocol there is a prophylaxis protocol using the quercetin and vitamins. It’s a good idea to have all of it on hand. I have enough for my entire street, maybe more🤣 I take the prophylaxis whenever I have to go out. I do a 5 day regimen. I discussed this with my surgeon and oncologist, they were both familiar with it, endorse it, use it and approved of me taking it. (I had to not take quercetin and aspirin for a week prior to surgery, but they told me to take all the others because I’ve been all over getting labs and testing).

          I also discussed it with my Mayo doctor she too was familiar with it, endorses it and uses it. She wholeheartedly supported me taking it and using it in the manner I am. She suggested one week instead of 5 days following an outing.

          So take it for what it is worth. I agree with EM, go get tested. The test is widely available and free.

            I no longer have a fever. I was only under the weather for a day. It was ten degrees then 50. My lungs rot when weather goes yo yo. In days of yore I would have put myself together. Covid bullshit had me thinking death. I don’t respond well to rotting leaves. It is poison. I put on my big boy pants and moved all you can do to fight my allergies is move. It, for me, goes away once I move. I get up with a runny nose. I cough. I take my very bad girl for a stretch and I feel fine. Yesterday I got the hint I was not long for this world. Bell bell, my bad girl, made me walk her. I had barely made the acquaintance of cement and my kung flu was gone. I was absorbed in my cold. It is so easy to lay in bed and drown in misery. Bella said fuck off take me on my stroll. Funny my very bad girl is afraid of the dark. She never has me walk her when it is streetlight time. I honestly think she said fuck it get your ass up and walk me. I did not subscribe to this horseshit. I feel fine and fever is gone. I treasure my bad girl. Ugh my Bella.

            Allergies? Guess what Tim? Lots of people swear by Quercetin for helping with seasonal allergies so taking it is a win-win.

            Vitamin C is suggested for allergy sufferers too, another win-win.

            Vitamin D aids the immune system and is important for heart and bone health. Most people are deficient in vitamin D, especially during winter months. It’s a building block for your immune system. In fact scientist attribute cold and flu season partially to lower vitamin D levels during winter.

            Just a quick factoid, experts predict that eventually 66% of the population will contract covid. Many will get it or may well have had it and not even know it. Vaccine or not, it’s out there and it will do what viruses do. So having the items on hand from Eastern Virginia Medical school protocol is advised. That protocol is science based, widely used and lauded. Bonus it works for all viruses including the common cold and the flu. It’s not a miracle, but if primes your immune system and gets it in tip top shape. I would suggest everyone download the protocol and secure the supplements.

            Specific to allergies you could add bromelain or become a pineapple juice drinker. Bromelain is only found in pineapple.

            If your allergies are sinus related take probiotics. Gut health is directly correlated to overall health. Years ago when my daughter was in cancer treatment she developed chronic sinusitis. They were throwing all kinds of stuff at her. Eventually it kept on developed into bronchitis and then pneumonia and delayed her treatment. In her case chemo had destroyed her IGG’s and she needed expensive IVIG infusions for the remainder of her treatment and 8 months beyond.

            During those early days I read everything I could on sinusitis. I stumbled across an ongoing study at the University of Michigan on chronic sinusitis and probiotics. They were just moving into phase 3 trials and their results were quite positive. 70% saw some level of relief as opposed to placebo group. The pediatric ENT specialist and my daughter’s oncologist were very impressed with the study. There was more to it than patients reported feeling better, various markers and levels were tested for and real clinical improvements were documented. The pediatric ENT contacted them and began work on putting together a pediatric study.

            Moral to the story gut health equates to overall good health. A healthy gut aids a healthy immune system. Taking probiotics or ensuring a diet rich in yogurt and keffir will not hurt you, it can however keep you healthier in more ways than you can imagine. Final tidbit I’ll add, once again scientific studies are behind this. One of the biggest bangs for your buck as far as calcium intake is from yogurt. The older we get all of us should try to add yogurt to our diets, hopefully not unhealthy super sweetened yogurt.

            So eat yogurt or take a daily probiotic or do both. It will improve your digestion and your immune system. If you add yogurt it will help keep your bones and teeth strong.

            Oh and as for your pre-diabetic issues, number one are you on a statin drug for cholesterol? They are finding more and more evidence of statins causing type 2 diabetes, some are worse than others. There are alternatives so discuss with your doctor.

            I mentioned before and I’ll mention again Goat’s Rue is metformin. They both come from the same plant. There are diabetics that substitute goat’s rue for metformin to save money. Most drugs are lab made, but many older drugs came from nature and metformin is one of those. If you are not truly clinically pre-diabetic or barely are goat’s rue may be too strong for you, always start in lower doses.

            You can also try Ceylon cinnamon, not the cinnamon in your spice cabinet, no, no. It must be Ceylon cinnamon or true cinnamon it is sometimes called. Ceylon Cinnamon is easily tolerated and controls blood sugar levels. It’s been used going back centuries. It’s much milder than goat’s rue but not as effective because as I said goat’s rue is metformin. The issue with taking goat’s rue is it can cause hypoglycemia you have to be careful.

            OK that ends my daily advice, take it or leave it, after all it was free. It’s your body, your choice.

    I’m getting a rib roast ready to go into a sous vide for dinner tomorrow night. My dad was a butcher, and anytime I get out the knives and the string, I think about all of the times we got meat ready to cook together. I let Alexa pick a random music station for me, and Trisha Yearwood came on with this song. It was teary time. Now I just need a bicycle or some other toy that needs to be put together dumped in my lap, and I will have had my Christmas memories of my dad completed.

    Shay quit being a vegetarian a few weeks ago. Just decided she wanted meat. I am cooking again. I am pretty sure that people dying from covid do not eat four hearty slices of beef pot pie. Oh yeah I went to town. Got a return ticket and had cherry cheesecake. Covid 19 can piss off. I am not gonna play. I love eating too much to pass away. You can hate me if you must I eat whatever I want. Still at 148 pounds. I do not gain weight. Constantly pre diabetic though.

  36. Mothy67 says:

    Just a funny. Shay has decided she loves good bread with sandwhich pepperoni. Spoiled is an understatement. We have scads of bread. My mom and I both bought tons of bread. Hey Zeus crisco would be green with envy.

    • elliesmom says:

      I suggest you buy Shay a bread machine. She can open the lid, dump good ingredients in, close the lid, walk away, and have really good bread in a couple of hours. The machine will pay for itself very quickly. A loaf of artisan bread in the grocery store is $4 or more. You can make it for about a buck. Very little effort, and the smell of it baking is fabulous. I’ve haven’t bought a loaf of bread at the grocery store in years. While I like to get one with the dough, the machine means I can have fresh bread even when I don’t feel like baking. Get her the machine, a pound of yeast, some white flour, some whole wheat flour, and some rye flour. Lots of bread machine recipes online. Liquid ingredients in first, then dry. No magic, except that’s what it feels like when the bread pops out.

      • Mothy67 says:

        I forgot that i have a machine. It sits in the pantry. It is top of the line cuisinart. I bought it years ago. Forgot it was there. I loved it when i did use it. The smell is worth it alone. I was way to worried about nutrition with da brat. I always had to worry about salt. Vegan shite is loaded with salt. Stuff is loaded with salt. I can not have much sodium. It literally makes me puke. I took tons of meds as a kid. Salt was a no no. Buy vegan nuggets, burgers, or bacon. There is a yuuuge amount of salt. I had to cook meals from scratch. Oh yeah it was work. Ya had to slave. How do you make cardboard taste good without salt. Baby girl just woke up and said I want pepperoni. She loves her a sammie. She now devours meat. I gotta say hush you Timothy. Girl is consuming. I be like old Jewish Shiska. Eat my child eat. I get yelled at forever and a day. Leave me alone. God you are annoying. Go away. I aint ever stepping aside. I cherish my brat. She can preach and likely scream and scream out loud. I is for always gonna be plopped outside her door. I will today, tomorrow, yesterday, gonna be there. She gets to say I hate you. Like I care. My brat matters. I accept being called asshole. I call me asshole.
