    I have a rash on my neck and bosom. Heat rash? One of the dogs getting into something and getting it on me? Mysterious reaction to the corn chips our guests brought? (And which I ate way too many of.) All I know is, it itches!

    I am being a model of restraint, but I WANT TO SCRATCH!

    SCRATCH, SCRATCH, SCRATCH!

    I hope you feel better soon. Itches are the worst!

    sorry your first experience with plasma donation didn't go well. Maybe be sure to mention it next time so they use a smaller needle? It'll take longer to draw the blood, but maybe it'll work that way? Good luck.

    Be sure and drink a lot as they told you, and if you exercise that day, do it after the donation. That really affects the ease in drawing blood.

    Hope the rash eases! Wonder what it is?

    things like contact with mold, mildew and algea can cause rashes......... wondering if any of your dumpster experimenting got any on you? Hydrocortisone cream is probably your best bet to ease the itching and help it go away.

    2 years ago I was floating on the lake on a mesh type floating thing........ had a ring a air with a mess center --- anyway - my bum came into contact with some rocks near the bank....... FLAMING rash on my toosh!!!! We're talking Port Wine Stain birth defect looking rash! I looked it up and sure enough - some types of algea can cause some major irritations! I loaded up with hydrocortisone cream everytime I needed to use the bathroom! Plus after showering and before bed! Took about 10 days to go away.

    You're curry sounds heavenly. We make curry the India way........ start with onions, sauteed in lots of ghee - then start adding in the spices - cumin, corriander, minced garlic, garum masala, red curry powder (not yellow), paprika, chili powder, cardamom pods, salt and pepper, curry leaves -- let it cook until you have a good paste -- then add the chicken and cook for about 15 minutes, then stir in the crushed tomatos and a big blob of yogurt. Let it slow cook for a few hours - serve over basmati rice. You can also make it with beef, lamb or fish. (hubby is a missionary's son - his parents were in India for 36 years) Our family gatherings are always an India food feast! I love it when I see others cooking India food - its the best food in the world!

    I'll be sure to ask for a smaller needle. Good tip, Jenn.

    As I haven't gotten IN to a dumpster yet, I don't think that's it. Skin is just a mystery sometimes, isn't it? Glad this one isn't on my toosh!

    Curry at Tomi's house, everybody! That sounds fantastic. I've never thought about putting yogurt in. What does that do to/for it?

    I have never had Indian food... never. Like ever in my life... makes me wonder what I'm missing out on.

    Yogurt or cream thickens it and adds flavor, at least with the ones we makes. Curry is pretty much a weekly staple for us, in one variety or another.

    Curry is the "signature" food of India --- but it goes FAR beyond curry. Buy yourself a good India Cookbook - and go for it! Just remember - the spices are KEY! Get as much as you can from an India grocery store or buy online from an India supply store. The "curry" powder you get at the normal American stores is yellow - that is mexican curry. Its entirely different than India curry. India curry is RED.

    Yogurt thickens as NK says - and adds flavor also. Hubby also puts on chutney to add more flavor. We are fortunate to have friends that get us chutneys and curry powder direct from India - its amazingly flesh!

    Thanks, Naiadknight!

    "3-6-9, 12-15-18, 21-24-27, 30!

    Yes they did
    Now's there's threeee in the family.
    That's a magic number."

    This is what's running through my head this morning, courtesy of Naiadknight's niece.

    Dinner last night: beef stew from the freezer. And rice crispies treats.

    My rash is showing signs of being poison something. (You know how it gets bubbly after a couple of days?) But not as extreme as it has been in the past. Maybe my body is sick of reacting to the stuff. Figures why should it get so worked up if I'm going to be rolling in this stuff a couple of times per year. Or maybe just some dumb luck.

    I have a patch on my face (ugh!), but I have been VERY GOOD about not scratching. Just doing some Japanese Bed Therapy (3 points if you know where I got THAT from) and moaning a little, for effect.

    Had a very nice time yesterday, meeting with a friend and going to a free-breakfast-with-luxury-cruise-sales-pitch. Yummy food (HUGE bacon and egg sandwiches on sourdough, which I ate open-faced), beautiful pictures, minimal pressure, and a good friend to chat with afterwards. I even scored a second B&E for lunch before I took the train home. Got a lot of knitting done as well. An oasis of relaxation and pleasure in the midst of stress. Everyone should have one.

    Speaking of...is there anything you do, that is so deliciously good, that when you do it, you pray for everyone in the world to experience it, or at least, that feeling? Nice hot baths are that for me. I just relax so fully, when I lay back in one. I can literally feel the worries leaving my body. I can shut my eyes, and just...be.

    Cold baths, while they have their own charms (who have thunk?), are just not the same.

    But it is too hot right now for hot baths. As soon as night falls, we open up the windows and doors, and sit with the attic fan pulling slightly cooler air over our bodies, sweating. Very 'Cat on a Hot tin Roof'.
