    Yup, the Epsom salts work, and rather gently too. I only took 1 tsp in 4 oz. water, mind you.

    Judj, I saw a post on tomi's page about soy sauce. I just tried coconut aminos in a stir fry for the first time a couple weeks ago and it was a great substitute! made from coconut sap and salt. Just thought I'd drop by to mention it.

    I've been reading your posts too for a while. I'm more a lurker than a poster, but you're doing great! Congratulations on all the progress!

    LOL! Too busy to dance... I want to drop that first number a bit more. It's a stubborn one.

    And yay for avatars! You have nothing to be ashamed of, Tomi. You look just fine. *adjusts magnifying glass* Yes, just fine.

    Thanks, KimT. I didn't realize I had lurkers. LOL! Where do you find coconut aminos? They come in a bottle, jar, box?

    Crashing a bit today. After grocery shopping, etc, hubby went out to take our grandsons off DIL's hands for a couple of hours. She's due to pop with number 3 any time now and welcomes any break she can get. I decided with great reluctance to stay home. Just too tired to handle wee ones. Not too sure why. Phooey! On the other hand, a very quiet house feels kind of good right now, despite the sticky weather. Haven't dug out our fans yet, apart from the one in the bedroom which I never put away last year. Laziness has its perks. We were supposed to get thundershowers this afternoon, which might have broken the heat, but so far we only have wind. Good tornado weather, when you come right down to it. Hot, sticky, windy. I don't think it's quite hot enough though. Hope I'm right.

    Okay, now I'm rambling.

    Hey -- it's YOUR journal - you are entitled to ramble all you want! I do on mine - and maybe on other peoples too...... Although I really not to. Rest up today if your body is asking for it.

    Just saw that there is a weather alert for severe thunderstorms, possibility of a tornado. Looks like I called that one. But I have no desire to see a tornado. I've been in the kind of weather that spawns them (as in, it happened a few towns over) and that was not fun. Lot of damage, power out for days, kids clinging to my legs and crying in fear. Nope, that was close enough. That was the time lightning hit the transformer on the corner of our property just as we were entering the house, about 20-25 feet away. We were lucky, in that we had no damage on our property, although several neighbours did. One tree on our block got split right in half by a lightning bolt.

    I don't exactly live in tornado alley here, but it seems every summer we have some kind of violent windstorm. I don't remember it being like this before.

    Let's see, I have now lived through the ice storm of the century (seeing as this area is the world's worst for ice storms, that is significant), the earthquake of the millennium (seeing as this area is pretty stable, that wasn't so impressive, although it scared the people who hadn't seen worse. I've seen worse, so I couldn't summon up the energy to get scared. Even worse didn't scare me, so meh.) and the tail end of assorted hurricanes which had been downgraded to just nasty storms. All in all, I've been let off easy, I guess. Which is fine by me.

    See, Tomi, I'm listening. I'm not doing anything productive or stressful at all. Talked to Architect Son (I love the way Winencandy names the "characters" in her journal, so I'm following suit.) from the couch. It was a great excuse to do so.

    Hey, Tomi said I could ramble... LOL!

    I love to ramble - and read rambling! Its like giving the brain permission to take a mental stroll through the park! Its therpeutic, I think.

    I love the naming of characters! We do that at the boatshop to keep are various customers and work associates straight! Lets see, we have Machine Shop Gary, Superior Engine Dave, Lunchtime Bob, Pedifile Bob, Landlord Dave......... and the list goes on and on! Its fun to come up with new names for people. We also have Nephew Scott and Icky Scott (yes, icky truly fits) *skin crawling* .

    Okay - enough of this for me........ back to yard work! Duck when that TORNADO passes by!

    I will duck right to the basement! Hasn't hit yet though. Not even rain yet, which I would welcome.

    Yesterday's report. No, no tornado, although we did finally get the thunderstorms and rain. One 18-year-old in critical condition after taking shelter under a tree, which got hit by lightning. *sigh* You'd think they would teach that in school, or at home, or somewhere. NO TREES in lightning storms... Get wet instead.

    You must have sent your storm up here. We never get much in the way of thunder, but yesterday the thunder literally shook the house. Lightning stuck about two houses away, it seemed like. Cats were freaked out in various degrees. Amazing. I knew about the tree thing, but how is it that houses don't get hit? Cars are grounded, right? Seems like trees would be very grounded. Anyway, glad you are safe.

    I'm going to try pigs' skin as soon as ecks makes it primal with sea salt and baked!

    Your cappuccino sounds yummy! Take it that it's warmer there than it is here.

    Lightning totally trashed a tree at our local high school less than a mile a way. It was splintered.
