    How long did it take for your bloating and stomach pains to disappear?

    It took a while, but it's finally "long".
    In May 2010 I cut it about 2" long.

    The chocolate coins just looked - waxy (and I knew I had better waiting for me at home)

    The pains, almost immediately. The bloating, Saturday night, Sunday??

    We went out to the bush and dug up 5 trees:





    And planted them at home:



    I borrowed some old pruners from my in-laws and turned this:

    Monday

    I DROVE the COMBINE!!!



    1st time EVAR!

    There are multiple steps to remember when driving a huge piece of expensive machinery.
    (besides the obvious "Don't hit anything")



    When starting, make sure you are in low gear
    flick up the main combine switch
    flick up the header switch
    THEN shift to high gear
    lower the header
    line up to the rows of corn
    drive straight down the row
    at the end
    lift up the header
    flick off the header
    flick off the main combine switch
    swing out the auger arm
    line up to the wagons
    switch to low gear
    lift the lever that starts the auger (to unload the corn)
    switch to medium gear
    if necessary, move the combine a little to evenly spread the corn in the wagons
    when empty
    switch to low gear
    lower the lever that stops the auger
    swing the auger back in place
    line up for the next row and repeat all steps

    From 10 am till 5 pm.
    My Farmer drove the full wagons to the elevator and back.

    My friend came and rode around with me for a couple of hours:


    At 5 I left the field to make supper. I had to drive the tractor home
    Another 1st!



    After supper I went to band.

    Reminds me of my first driving experience - a tractor at age 7 when we lived in Italy! My parents had a fit, but the local family next door thought nothing of it. As I recall it was fun......
    Female 53
    Starting wt: 198, Goal: 135, Current with PB: 160
    Started at a size 16 down to loose 10

    With PB my asthma has improved, low back pain is gone, & I've got more energy

    Tuesday

    Well I had yet another job interview at 10am today.
    Got the "Sorry, but you were the unsuccessful candidate" call at 3pm.

    My life...

    I was on my way into London to go shopping with my daughter.
    She needed a Halloween costume.
    Surfer Son needed a video game.

    I got nothin'

    A few Winencandy ranch photos:

    We made the Butterfly pen larger. This is what the antique "Double Loop" fencing looks like:



    Here's their larger pen (I'm still going to make it bigger):


    The Greenhouse and the "drinkin' water" well pump are in the background.

    Another view of their pen (from the greenhouse)



    Here's my chair inside the greenhouse:



    My still growing tomatoes:




    Observation:
    I bought a box of my favourite wine on Friday.
    3L box (equal to 4 bottles)
    The box says it will stay fresh for 6 weeks.
    I thought I'd try it.

    6 weeks...
    Pffft
    The wine is gone.
    5 days.
    4 bottles...

    All I can say is "been there, done that..."

    Sucks about the job interview. Really.

    I love your greenhouse! You're going to have a lot of planning for spring!

    And that's a "pen"? More like a butterfly acreage Lucky doggies.
