    Yes, I have lots to learn about CO. I would think it is one of those substances with a great capacity for allergic reaction, I don't know why. Just seems like it. I have puzzled over the coffee thing. Not something I would ever have thought of. Not knocking it at all, just haven't tried it. (For one thing, I can't drink coffee, gives me horrible GERD.) But I guess I feel weird commenting about other people's eating habits. I know my own eating is very idiosyncratic.

    Developed a craving for beef this AM, so went to the store and came home with a flatiron slab. Seasoned it up, sauteed it, heated up the rest of the zucchini stuff -and - the piece de resistance - squeezed orange juice over the whole thing. Also added all the pan juices. Did you know that orange goes very well with beef? It does. I guess the Chinese already figured that out Ate it ALL. I've eaten quite a bit of food today already! It's raining, my favorite classical music program is on the radio, my back is a lot better and all is right with the world. For this moment anyway, and this moment is really all that counts.

    I checked out the price of ghee and nearly fell over, but I know I can make it myself quite easily. Sounds like a good thing to put on the calendar for the next rainy day.

    Yep, oranges are the super food for cooking with. Glad you like them too.

    Have a super day. Yes, all the Indian populations says ghee is quite simple to make. It's that clarified butter you get with lobster tails. A little strong for me on a daily basis, but great stuff -- especially on a piece of naan bread.

    Cats are all cuddled up. Like you, I just might put some music on. My favorite kind is classical Hindustani -- specifically, the sarod. Love that instrument.

    What a lovely picture I have in my mind - kitties, great music -

    I used to make ghee, ages and ages ago - it is a good way to preserve butter as it lasts just about forever when you remove the milk solids. And of course the taste and the ability to cook with high heat. Big win situation. Yes, must make ghee.

    I am feeling good - way too good - way, way too good - just visited L.L. Bean and found a dress and a sweater I can't live without (right). Told myself I wouldn't get it unless I had a coupon to redeem, thinking that of course there would not be a coupon...but there were TWO coupons. So the dress and the sweater are on their way. Damn.

    I think I have a slight coconut allergy, I tend to get reactions when I have a lot. I have a couple of foods like that; if I eat them in very small doses, I'm okay, but I can't overdo it. Citrus, unfortunately.

    You and I are obviously wired differently. I like to mull things over for quite a while; so many of my impulse decisions work out badly! And I often prefer to ease my way into something, rather than plunging in. And I really detest flip-flopping. Once I've made up my mind, good luck talking me out of it! It takes a lot of evidence, and time to mull it over... Of course, life would be so boring if we were all the same.

    My cat brings chipmunks inside the house sometimes. The good thing - he never kills them, just likes to play with the cute, little critters. The not so good thing - I get to spend hours sometimes chasing them around till I'm finally able to capture and let them outside to freedom. I even have the pictures to prove it. LOL!!!
    Oh, and Siobhan, I'm so glad to see you are doing much better.

    Back at work and loving it! It is so nice to feel better and be useful and productive and have people come up to me and tell me they are glad I am back and they missed my work.

    Did all my eating quite early today! Been running around here and am starting to get a bit peckish, but I'm going to wait until 2 AM. Then I won't eat again til around 4 PM. That's the plan! Not written in stone though.

    Hey, I had a cup of coffee with a teaspoon of coconut oil before I came to work, tasty it was too. I could get used to that. No GERD! It was a small cup. Maybe the fat helps prevent the reflux? I will experiment with that again.

    I'm halfway through my shift and feeling great. Thinking back over this episode I am pleased that I stayed primal, although I can't claim any great willpower or anything as I really, really like being primal, and I sincerely believe that being primal helped me enormously. Normally something like this would have sucked energy from me like a sponge, maybe led to a bit of "oh poor me" or something - but hey, I went through it, I learned from it, I'm dealing with it. Anything that threatens my independence is horrible for me, as I am a fierce loner who despises asking for anything. Luckily I fed my brain enough fat to think through the situation more clearly than I would have imagined and didn't get all bent out of shape. There will be challenges in the future and I will deal with them - as long as I have fat coursing through my body I will be okay! Actually I am extremely pleased to find out, because of all the imaging that has been done, that my spine is in terrific shape. Not bad for almost 53. As soon as the sciatic nerve calms down, I'll be 100%.

    Just had a rather large meal. Couldn't wait for 2 AM. So decadent. Crab with butter, smoked salmon, avocado, onion, broccoli slaw with BV+OO, a pear. I will be okay for quite a while now.

    Weird thing just happened. I just caught an error that had gone through about 12 people. There was no effect on the patient, just an admin thing, but still I kind of surprised myself. Pretty alert for an old girl at 3 AM!

    Good on you. Although I wish you'd stop calling yourself an old girl. I've got a couple of years on you! And glad you're feeling so much better.
