YodaMamma MS & More

Location: Crescent City, Fl, United States

I am 60, have MS, am an avid cook, love making candles (soy) and watching the endless parade of Nature outside my home. I treat the MS with supplements and LDN, I do not use any of the C.R.A.B. MS meds, we don't get along well. I was married for 13 years, we were together for 15. We are now divorced. Sad, that. I do still love him, but ONLY as the father of my baby. Better to keep it civil, hurts the child(ren) less that way, but is oh-so-hard to do sometimes.

I'm going to have to think of an appropriate PUNishent for Rob...the other day in a conversation I said something about "That's why God created kitchen appliances" He then said...hold on now, wait for it......
"Would that be Amana from Heaven?"

Phoenix the rescue kitty

Phoenix appeared one day in our backyard, over by the chicken coop. We have no idea where she came from, and the coop is quite some distance from the closest road, so it must have been a harrowing trip to get where she was. I think someone must have tossed her out of a car. She was injured and starving. Of course we fed her, well, put out a can and hoped she would find it, and of aourse she did. So we started feeding her daily. Rob took the pic you've seen after about a week or so, so she was already looking quite a bit better then when we first saw her. She had trouble walking and a couple of obvious injiries, one on her flank and one on a shoulder, and a big tick on her ear.
One day after obtaining some trust from her, I put out a can where she would see it, and inched my way toward her. Finally I was able to pet her, but we left her a few days more to instill more trust. Then one day Rob put a can in the carrier and she came right in, we closed the door and the funniest thing happened...she was instantly as tame as if we had raised her from the start! You would never know she was feral! Rob took her and bathed her and removed the tick and washed those great big ears out, and perixided her wounds. We then brought her upstairs and put her in a vacant room for a day or so to get used to the idea that she was finally safe, with abundant fresh food and water. She also instantly litter trained herself!
Since then, we moved her into our bedroom, she sleeps on me or by me every night. She is getting sassy! She has a very long tail, long legs, big ears and a tiny, pointy, foxy face, with astounding eyes that change color constantly. I have seen them sky blue, green, sage, golden, and almost colorless. She has also learned to play!!! She is a very sweet kitten, and a bit of an enigma as we really have no clue how she got to be where we found her, all we know is she was tiny and injured and starving and now she is growing, her wounds all healed up and a very sweet little addition to our home!

Reflections of a hippy-dippy (or is that a dippy hippy?)

One of my email groups was talking about hippy stuff...as you can see my son is a fine up-and-coming hippy himself, and I wear tye-dye as much as possible. I was reflecting on my youth, and was remembering that my first kiss was to Inna-Godda-Da-Vida, and it wasn't on the oldies station, either. Actually we didn't even HAVE oldies stations back then. I remember Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Jimi, Mama Cass...from Buffalo Springfield to Dusty Springfield to Rick Springfield...I remember the first COLOR TV!!! I was about Robbin's age when my father brought this Gigantic thing home. There were only one or two stations that broadcast in color at the time. Now look at us! In my wildest imagination I would never have dreamed of the things we see on TV now! And maybe that is not such a good thing, kids today don't HAVE to use their wildest imagination, all they have to do is push a button or two...I don't know. I Do know that Robbin does have a vivid, wild imagination and uses it all the time, Jimmy Neutron and Spongebob notwithstanding...And he has discovered green veggies!! How many times do we tell our children to eat their veggies so they can grow big and strong? Well it seems to finally have seeped it's way in, and now he requests something green every dinner (not that I haven't always made them) and eats it all up, saying "Green Power! YAY! Green Power will make my brain strong and will make ME strong like my daddy! Green food is good for my colon!!!" (Now WHERE did he get THAT one from???) Yes green food IS good for all that but how many 8-year-olds are concerned with their COLON?!?!?!
My Hens have finally started laying!!!! YAAY!!! The first eggs are tiny, the empty shell fits into a regular egg shell, but the yolks are orange and thick, and they stand high and firm and yummy! The shells are also very thick, which is great, means they are getting enough calcium in their diet.
I am a bit concerned about LDN, I am on the last pill and haven't got the funds to get more right now, and it takes so long to get here, it will be at least a month or two that I will have to go without and I don't want to have to quit it! I have no choice though. Oh well, wish me luck, I don't want my symptoms coming back, I hope they don't.
Robbin just came up and is chattering away about going too have green food for dinner ROFL...actually I haven't decided yet what I'm going to make for dinner...maybe a stir-fry?
Ok that's all for now...Stay Cool!
