Good morning Day 9,
I had a lovely hike yesterday the weather was perfect and the dogs loved the mud.
I had some pineapple yesterday and was worried about it as I could not see it on the shopping list, so I put a post out there. I got some good helpful responses, but there is always one that will bitch you and it really hurts. I was on a forum many years ago for about 2 years, I spent so much time helping other and it was great because I made some very special friends there. Some of us even met up, we got to see we were real people. We chatted for hours on the phone and were there for each other. Three Ladies are coming to see me next year from the USA, we have all be web friends for 7 years. I can't do that again here and it makes me sad, I have read so many posts but I don't want to get involved. Its a shame, I feel here new people are not welcomed very well by some. When someone takes the courage to tell their story and make a big change in their life you need to be positive for them. I know its frustrating because so many come and go, but I bet half leave because no one answered them or they got a uncaring response. If you don't like a question don't answer it, because you could be really damaging that person.
Oh I have stopped dairy for the next 10 days, which seems a shame as I don't eat red meat and I get protein from cheese. But it will be interesting to see what happens. No bike riding yet as weather was not nice Sunday and I would rather hike with my dogs, biking will be when I have some spare time.
