Thank you all.  Keeps me really humble.  Just checked in, and the yellow shields, yellow, yellow everywhere, are like a home-fire burnin'.  Immense thanks and may God bless you all.

Hey, I'm feeling pretty good, in spite of...everything....

Just enjoyed an Indian lunch out: Lamb Korma, cauliflower, Yogurt Lassi. Actually stopped to make eggs for breakfast, too.

And, B's, I'm doing some cool supplements. I KNOW the minerals are good, the GLA's too, and I have a feeling the Eleuthero is playing a strong supporting role as well.  

Honorable mention goes to my old pal Magnesium:  Y'know, it was one of the ways I KNEW, when I first read ER4YT, that Peter was onto something:  I'd been a Magnesium devotée for virtually my entire life already...and he recommends it as part of B's supplement protocol for...dang near everything! (Actually, I WONDER HOW Peter arrived at this discovery re: B's and Magnesium -- anyone know?)

Whole Foods is doing its part in the winter vegetables (Prepared Foods) department, too.  Baked Yam, or gingered carrots, or olive-oil-sauteed shiitakes, or cauliflower gratin, or broccoli salad, or beet salad, or parsnip pancakes....Is this not B-Heaven?  Now if only the lamb shanks were not braised in tomato-ey sauce!!

Anyway, just checkin' in with the Family.

Mostly doing renovations(minor) on my house, removing carpet and trim, painting,adding laminate. The dog wore out the hall carpet rolling on it. Starting my tomato seeds for the year(I am a non remember). Went to a great yoga class tonight ,we didn't do headstands like last week but advanced pigeon pose and eagle stance were enough of a challenge. Ended up covered with sweat. Oh an O fellow engineer at work just go engaged to a Seattle vegetarian who swims laps for an hour and wears a diamond stud in her nose. He was complaining about gas today, should be interesting. About humming the latest CD on the iPod is Death Cab for Cutie's Transatlanticism.

Love Death Cab for Cutie... don't have anything by them, however...  

How do you start your tomatoes... under grow lights? Or can you plant outside this time of year? Not that I will be growing tomatoes anytime soon... mind you.  

Great... you do yoga... didn't know that! I had a daily practice for years, and feel the need to once again return to that. I miss it.

I start the seeds in peat pellets indoors and when they sprout put them on window sills underneath flourescent lights untill late march or early April. I have to start early it usually gets to hot for them to produce about the end of july.

Good to hear Exj-j
What is the story about magnesium and B´s- I asked for the magnesium citrate here and they look at me like ????
What the citrate and not the carbonate ?

BTW I feel SO much better this week- I seem to have recovered from my pneumonia really well.
I started to take a product called Kan jang= Acanthopanax senticosus + Andrographis paniculata and this has really been very impressive how well it workes.
My chickens have started to lay LOTS of eggs- pretty tiny= 30-50 grams and I eat more of those again -espeacially at lunch instead of meat. My body dreams of spring and asparagus and other green veggies
I am a bit fed up with root veggies I must admit.
I got seeds yesterday from a UK seed club called real seeds http://www.vidaverde.co.uk
I used them last year as well. We have sown several red/yellow peppers ( no tomatoes for me - just a few tiny ones for my daughter)
Today it feels like spring: a massive snow blizzard yesterday turnend into rain in the night and at least I can see some spring bulbs next to the house - so I am happy

Ah, here in Northern California, Spring starts just after Christmas.  The jonquils are up and fragrant around New Year's, the Cherry trees are in blossom about half- or 2/3-way through January... It's pretty amazing.  The saying goes, "April Flowers bring May Showers"...where I was born (New York).  Here it's more like, "December Showers bring January Flowers".

Henriette, so happy about your recovery.  Kan Jang, huh? I was about to say I've been taking a chinese herb preparation in the morning, but -- WHOOPS -- I forgot to take it this morning...And as for the magnesium I'm currently taking, it's a compound I've forgotten, as I transferred it to a little ziploc bag awhile back...

Great to hear from you, and I'm jealous about the little fresh eggs!

wondered where you'd been - now I know! Glad you are recovering even though I didn't know you were ill.

I hope to start growing things (eventually)when I move. Dad has been doing some decorating for me this week (very kind of him) but I have upset the rest of my family. I am normally the boring sensible one so I figured it was time for me to change! Anyway, will see what happens when my dad comes back tomorrow...

Is there any commercial brand of chips or crackers that are 100% “B” compliant?  Like a rice and nut chip made with olive oil.  Something to munch and crunch and carry with you.

Nope.

Well... maybe one. Eden makes a rice chip that is rice flour, rice bran oil, sea veggie (nori?) and salt. But they are mostly oil, imo. And not all that satisfying but OK if you don't eat too many of them.

For exj_j  

I have officially retired as a moderator on the boards but am apparently maintaining  mod status, hence I placed the "moderator emeritus" posting underneath my avatar. I didn't want members to think I was still an active moderator even though it looks like I am... rather confusing. Perhaps I should change it to "inactive moderator" but... that makes me sound like a lazy oaf and us B's have such an unwarranted rap with the supposed 'unambitious' personality trait.

Hi there!   Just checking in here for a moment.  We had a lovely day today with about 8 inches of fluffy snow, not too hard to shovel.  

I'm with you, exj_j about the magnesium.  Lovely stuff for us Bs.  I take about 1200 mg a day, actually.  I take it morning and night as supplements.  I was taking mag citrate but recently couldn't find it when I needed it in the HFS so bought a combo of oxide, citrate and aspartate forms by NOW Foods.   I think I like it better so will stick with this.  Personal preference, that's all.  

Just saw the coffee thread and was reading that.  Caffeine has never bothered me, fortunately.  I was given a small espresso pot a year ago, the kind you put on the burner of the stove, and ever since I have had a cup of espresso every afternoon.  It's like a reward for being really good with food choices day in and day out.  Gotta have some kind of reward, don't you know!  

It's great having a B thread.

Do you actually atke 1200 mg a DAY ??? Wow that a lot.
I went to London in my term break and found magnesium oxid .. so I am fine at the moment.
We had LOVELY sun today but really freezing cold. -2 c and wind from east.
I can see spring and I started my peppers and eggplants today- how good to be alive and put small seeds in the pots BUT they promise another snow blizzard tuesday I am fed up with winter !
I am SOOOOOO busy at the moment and slightly stressed: I have to finish 3 mayor papers/ exams, do two small (10- 20 pages) papers and follow classes : 28 lessons pr week. I wonder if the school think I should sleep the next 3 months!
AND I suddenly remember why I don´t like to study! THE PRESSURE of doing something I don´t choose myself .
I want to feel free- I just love the classes the books the talks etc but I hate to have a long list of things to do. BUT good new on the exercise part:
I have managed to do 2-3 times yoga pr week and a long walk every day the last weeks... I think the lioghts make a difference and I signed up to do some weight training as well I know I am really too busy but I want to get in shape.

I REALLY miss the country.   I used to live way out in the hills, in the middle of nowhere... walking every day in pure nature, in touch with weather, seasons... And now I'm in the city of San Francisco, a relatively fresh/clean city, but a city nonetheless.  I'm envious of those of you who are planting and harvesting and herding and all those REAL things.  I need to get the heck out of here.  May God open those doors...

I have already started my tomato plants inside. I will be planting things outside around the end of March after the Herb Festival is over. This year Cherokee Purple, Black Krim, and Mule Team tomatoes, Butternut Violina winter squash, Burgundy Okra, Delistassen Cucumbers, various herbs. Maybe the blueberry bushes I've plantd will start to produce. Now if I can just persuade DestructoDawg not to dig up everything I plant! Not enough room for sheep or goats.

Lucky you
My tomatoes (for my daughter) and peppers can first go out in May.
In late march I can start spinach, peas and that type of hardy things- then everything explodes in april -luckily Easter is late this year -so I plan to do the majority of my kitchen garden then- except sqaush and beans they have to wait to early May when the cherry trees bloom.
Oh my I am daydreaming today- another blizzard hit today

Exj -that was why I left the big city- I felt than the seasons passed away without me really feeling it- when I miss life I am just 1,5 hours away from Copenhagen that suits me having nature around me- beeeing close to big city.However I envy Kristin when I read her blog yesterday- I want mountains - wrong country I suppose.

Henriette, you will have to come and visit me in Wales to see some mountains!

I much prefer a slower pace of life which I get here in the country.


Now, to completely change the subject this is something I've been wondering about for a while -
Bs AND HEIGHT.In the Encyclopaedia it states Bs are statistically taller - but this doesn't seem to apply to the Bs I know in my family and friends....just wondering how this pans out elsewhere. Are you tall or like me are you mostly looking up to others ?(well, physically at least hee hee)

Well... as you know... I have looked down on others my whole life.




Really... I've only met one woman my entire life (so far) taller than me. I'm the one that sees all those undyed roots on tops of heads...

Uh oh, Kristin, I'll have to push forward my colorist date... Which I have to do anyway because of the rate of my hair's growth.

In all seriousness, everyone who's ever done my hair has commented on the incredible speed with which it grows.  My current hairdresser says she's seeing what she'd estimate as SIX OR MORE MONTHS' growth when I come by for my 2-3 month appointment.  I told her the good side of that:  I never sweat it if a hairdresser cuts too much off.  But I do have to attend to my bangs every week or so.

O, when I lived in the sticks, hair-length and roots were never an issue...

Funny my hair grow like weed as well- years ago I gave up to have short hair

Mountains- Oh it sounds good- I´ll see how my economy is later this year -thanks

Just to let you know - I have just found out my secretor results  and turns out I am a nonnie - which I did suspect, feels kind of weird though. I put off doing the test for ages, and now there's no room for doubt! Things like tea and coffee not seeming ok, potatoes seem to make me stiffen up, can't make out dairy front).

I'm not sure where this leaves me diet wise - although i believe I can eat pumpkin seeds now. Ho hum, any wise words from the other B nonnies? Actually, I've been pretty good on the wheat this week, had some yesterday (we went out for my mum's birthday ) but not as much as I might normally have done.

Henriette I'm not too good on converting measures - I know this country is meant to be metric but we're a bit schizophrenic, and so we still use the old measurements - I think though I am about 1.5 metres,(5'2""). but I am the smallest in the family (I say all the growth meant into my brains  - I say that to my tall youngest sister!).

Wow, Kristin, how tall are  you?!  It's funny -when I used to go clothes shopping with my tall O friend - I would complain about not being able to find trousers short enough, she couldn't find ones with legs long enough. Hey, and I'm glad I don't dye my hair any more (I went through a blonde phase when i was younger to see if blondes really did have more fun - didn't seem to work though  so went back to my normal colour hee hee)
