There's all this news about katrina and wilma... but on the very bottom of page 12 of a recent SF Examiner there's a 2 sentence paragraph to this effect:

79,000 DEAD, AND STILL COUNTING, IN PAKISTAN QUAKE

I think that merits the front page, certainly ahead of Maria Shriver's visit to the Exploratorium or the visit of Mayor Newsom to the Pier whence a deranged schizoid woman had tossed her 3 babes into the water.

79,000, which means, in Pakistan, something like 20,000 B's!!!!!

Can anyone here comprehend the meaning of these numbers?  While O's succumb to cholera and A's/AB's to cancer/cardiovascular disease, and B's to viruses,

EVERYBODY is killed by such "acts of God"... Count my mind BLOWN.

The US media is truly pathetic when it comes to acknowledging the magnitude of world events.

It is totally mind-blowing, unfathomable... I just cannot imagine coping with an event of that scale...

Kristin,
how about starting part II of this great thread?
adding the link to this part I, ofcourse for reference.
it is taking quite long to load.

Really it isn´t only US media - danish media aswell! And danish government and population...

Norway gave around 220 mill dk kr and denmark gave 30-45 mill.dk kr- we are about the same population and same economic standard! I feel so ashamed of being danish... we have become a selfcentered and xonophobian society. SAD
1 dollar= 6 dk kr.

We have had quite  a lot of coverage of what's happening in Pakistan - we do have a lot of Asians who will have families over there - very worrying for them - but the other night I did notice the headlines were about the Conservative Leadership Contest followed by the Earthquake.... Hmmm - which one is more important?

I actually avoid watching too much of the news as they tend to go over and over the same things, endlessly discussing and if possible trying to find blame for whatever it is, and this actually affects me negatively - and seems so pointless. Yet, behind the scenes often there is a lot of good that happens that is just not covered by the main news. This I find depressing. How can we hope for people to grow up with a positive view of the world around them if all they are exposed to is the negativity and the "bad" things?

I agree - We used to watch the news while we were eating dinner- but I have stopped- because it was so blody depressing- somehow I didn´t want my daughter to belive that all things that happends are negative/ terrible events.
We still watch the news together at other times- because I believe very strongly in telling kids about the world- including the bad sides... but at dinnertime- nope.

Yesterday, the 2000th American soldier was killed in Iraq.  As horrific as this is, there is much less mention of what is speculated to be 30,000 Iraqis killed during this senseless war. (Please excuse my political leanings.)

Hello B's.  Hello B-halves of AB's.

Exj_j is, for the moment, back in the saddle, for numerous reasons...and by various means.  Some of it is inspirations/coincidences/synchronicities that were the answers to y'all's prayers, fer sher.

Whattan amazing bunch you/we are!!

Ellie, what's going on with you -- I recall there was a health challenge coming up for you in November, so, if you care to, remember we're here for ya.

And Kristin:  Where've you been?  You used to be everywhere, and, maybe it's me, I don't think I've seen from you in awhile?

I picked up a book at a sale the other day, on Central Asia (Uzbek/Khazak region): Very jazzed about it, not ready to start it right away, but I'm looking forward to reading it ... side by side with a book about those RUGS!!! The rugs of the nomads from the B regions are very attractive, and less expensive than those of villagers and workshops...Made by B ancestors/relatives, no doubt!

Check in, brethren and sistren.

Good to see you Exj
Ellie
I was wondering about the same?
Haven´t heard from you a while!

Well guys I am 2 weeks into my 4 week teachers practice :
I am at a pretty large school teaching 8 years old - they are so funny and sweet
This week I really had to use all my B´nes. We were working together with children from grade 1-9  mixed! in a theme about children in other countries.
I was part of the South American team.
It really demanded a lot of imagination, octoupus behavior and I LOVED IT - it was so fun...
Lots of the old teachers really couldn´t stand it- not being safe in the classroom with their own kids- but I liked the networking- the stories- the chaos .. BUT when I came home I really needed to be left alone!
I have 2 weeks left- It will be more tradional teaching- I´ll be teaching the 8 yo danish - will do a theme about the old nordic gods. I think it ´ll be fun

It's been a month so I thought I would bump this back to the top. Well Thanksgiving is nearly hear all of the relatives will be getting togather, 2/3's Bs with scattered puzzled Os. At least 2 people will bring cheesecakes and I will be putting cream in the pumpkin pie made with veggies glycerine I'll be making, after I tweak it I'll post it. Made with fresh grated pumpkin. Then we'll watch the college football team from the school most of us attended get used, bruised, and abused. The dogs will outdo their usually best at the "I'm starving, may I please have some more?" A distant relative from a nearby mil;itary base will be there for the first time. Could we have a lone A?

where've you been?
doncha know there's a B and Individuality II now?  I like having the whole thing on one thread too, but the techies said "takes too long", so we're supposed to use that second thread.
B & Individuality, by any name, is a really special place to be.

Yes, I am here folks - updated on my own little thread - the pre-surgery one. I didn't realise my little B friends were thinking of me on here - it's so heartwarming to see those messages.

So for those who don't know, I couldn't actually have the op because my blood pressure was too high (first reading 157/110) but at least have seen and experienced hospital and staff first hand and am pleased with my choice. ..so now have to get the BP sorted before I go back - I have had a new date through of 5th April next year.....which should mean I will have moved house and had a bit of a chance to settle first....

So exjj how are things with you?

Henriette, have you got exams/assessments? I meant to email you, still catching up with myself!

Hey, Ellie! Yay, you're back.  OK.

Sorry, but I can't go into much detail about the "situation".  I'd love to remain on a sort of "code green" status, or something, whereby I'll just know you B's are occasionally directing a little prayer my way...

As for you, I hope you're feeling ok.  What are you doing about the Blood Pressure? Have you seen Dr. D's book on Cardiovascular Disease?  It's great. Between the focussed diet, the supplements (there's a hypertension protocol in there) and the exercise/fitness, you may very well tweak those numbers downward.
Hope so.

Thanks for checking in both places Ellie. I'm glad your trial run went well.  

Better keep those channels open for B love, exj_j  


Hey B's - I had a nice B experience this Thanksgiving. We visited my husband's aunt in Santa Fe and she asked me about the BTD. So I gave her the rundown... and her blood type?... she's a B too!! But not only that... both her ex-husbands were B's (I always wondered how that B&B combo would work... obviously not so well for her  ) and all 4 of her children are B's. So here I was surrounded by B's and I didn't even know it! She then told me a story of when her daughter was a young adult and went from very healthy to very sickly in a short period of time. What was the culprit? Her daughter had stopped eating dairy. When she began eating dairy again as her mother suggested, her health returned.

Too cool!

Wow, Kristin! Especially love the dairy part! We B's have simply GOT to lead the charge against AntiDairy Propaganda Forces!  Stories like Kristin's husband's niece's, and like many of ours, scream out to be told in the mainstream. Calling Dr. D?

And Henriettebsec and I are gung-ho WholeMilk, etc.

Lucky you, Kristin, with all those B's.  But I have to say -- uh oh, I'll get fried for this -- Many B's are... too much for me.  I mean, B's are often unusual, yes, as am I, but some have some really VOLATILE moods, and in a family setting, this can be draining.  ... There, I've said it.  I think it might be acceptable, coming from an actual B, right? But I wonder about B's sometimes, "Is this one of the sane ones or one of the I-dare-you-to-handle-me/demanding ones?"  (Any takers?)

Funny in my B and O family the O's are the ones with the volatile moods. All the B's would just shrug and think "to each his own" . The B's seem to be more accepting of people's differences while the O's are much more conventional and a bit dull! At least the B's out number the O's.

That's a really interesting story with the dairy Kristin! I seem to do better with goats dairy tho than cows (although a little bit seems ok).

Exj-j, I haven't done anything specific about the BP yet. Need to make an appointment with the GP, have just been adjusting to being back home. It has made me really think about how I do push myself still to do more than my body can handle, incl sometimes trying to go for a walk or even talk too much which I can feel makes my body stressed and as if it doesn't know how to calm itself down. So as I have a few things to do already in the next week or so, I will not make an appointment with the GP immediately.esp as I now have till next April!! ...I've been wondering about giving Nitricycle a go too. And to up my meditations. ..
and still keep looking at the secretor test which I haven't done yet.

Also, not expecting any intimate details from you, just an indication - are you code red for emergency eg? Keep reminding us, so we keep lighting candles for you!

hey fellow Bs,

Just want to get the nonfat/lowat/fullfat dairy debate started again, if you dont mind.

like many of you I have switched to full fat dairy recently, largely because of some B's raving posts about fullfat dairy. I too think that it just tastes way better and it also makes me feel better. lowfat and nonfat milk has such an empty taste, almost like water.

But heres my question: Why is fullfat dairy better for weight loss? What's the logic behind that? Isn't more fat = more weight gain? I am confused. This goes beyond my intelluctual grasp

I want to find for you the name of a scientist at the forefront of this, someone in particular, not at the tip of my tongue right now, and I'm not home at the moment: Rapidler, I promise I'll get you that name. I think it's Virginia E....

But another one comes to mind, actually the perfect "entree" name for this issue of Fats leading to weight loss, also now a "bestseller": Will Crower? or Clower, PhD, author of The Fat Fallacy.  This'll set you on the right road.  And he refers to the above and other scientists. I love the book! And I'm considered a tough customer...

Really cool to see the "Food Group Pyramids" of different countries in this book,  how the US is on its own bizarre track.

In the US, we've been pushing the "low fat" thing, and our incidence of heart disease keeps getting worse and worse!! ESPECIALLY during the same years that Americans are cutting back on fats more and more.  Find out more about this by reading The Fat Fallacy.  In fact, I recommend this book to all B's especially.

Now: How did I lose 10 lbs in September?  By enjoying full fat dairy.  Rapidler learned of this and put it to the test, obviously successfully.  Here it is in a nutshell: Keyword: SATIETY.
Instead of stressing carbs, which low-fat eaters do (the ingredients lists of "low-fat" products often add carbs, not to mention chemicals, to imitate taste factors/consistency), and instead of eating HUGE low-fat protein sources, we full fat eaters, in adding cream, for instance, are enjoying the LONGEST LASTING and filling and "mmm....satisfying" aspects of our food.  We are thus not frantically seeking to satisfy inexplicable cravings with add-on carb snacks.  We're happy people.  Food is GREAT at mealtimes, because it includes everything we want and need. We're not deluded that fractionating dairy products (and adding various chemicals to the fraction to simulate decent products) is going to be GOOD for us!  

Most important, as Clower points out, we're not waiting for American Dietary associations to admit that the other countries are healthier and eat differently, including Whole Dairy.  He points out how difficult it is in Europe (and I concur, and would include the middle east) to LOCATE low- or non-fat dairy products in the markets.  These people don't use them, and their health is PHENOMENALLY better than ours.  

Clower was on a different track, originally.  He was a neuroscientist on 2-year research fellowship in Lyon, France, and the lifestyle over there, the diet, etc., really intrigued him, to the point of changing his whole career focus.  His whole family was eating daily cheese, butter, cream, and dropping the pounds. So he wrote The Fat Fallacy.  There are other books out there, with "French" in the title, "French Diet", "French Women", "French Paradox"... but, having browsed them in the stacks, they're not, for me anyway, as compelling. Fat Fallacy holds together, is cogently presented, and is kind of humourous and iconoclastic: Perfect for BTDers!

Interesting note:  The size of the Heavy Whipping Cream display at my local Whole Foods Market is... HUGE.  I don't know if they've SUBSTANTIALLY increased their purchase for the holiday season or what.  I think the Atkins followers are a pretty big factor...

On another recent topic on the thread, B's and moods.

I've been noting the blood types of clients for a few years now.  My B clients can be a test.  Some of them are kind of demanding, as in "See how difficult I can be? Admit it, I'm a hard case".  I usually score VERY well with my B clients in the end, because I can meet them every step of the way. But they can be challenging. But it's as if they're saying "Prove how good you are at this.  I'm your most difficult case. I wouldn't be surprised if you just threw up your hands and gave up".

Maybe I expressed it badly above, in a former entry. I called it moodiness. But, actually, it's, rather, a sense of "specialness", as in "I'm a Special Case".

But: Aha!  Because we B's are found in such small numbers around the Western world, we get used to being different...

I don't know, friends, I'm just rambling.  See if you can cope with me.

high fat cheese has a very low carb ratio.

a high fat diet, will definately let you loose weight.

the lower your carb intake, the faster you loose.

Hi all B´s
Great to see you Ellie.
I would say some stress relief would lover your blood pressure and mayby high potassium food?

I am and have been stressed. My last 2 weeks with the kids ( teaching) was a bit demanding.
The planning...... (I am really in many ways a spontanious person) and the fact that kids normal teacher was sitting in the back looking at me......
BUT I did get very good feed back ... they told me that the only thing I lacked was something I would not learn at College:
Experience!!!

Next 2 weeks will be busy..
I´ve got my first really large paper....Exams in danish
Paper is about about kids reading habits -what they read and why-
and then it is Christmas.
A little bit stressful for me since:
Last year my dad died from me in the Christmas.
Actually he first died Jan 9th... but somehow I felt he died during Christmas. I do feel fine about him dying etc yes I miss him...
but It makes it important that this Chistmas is a nice -happy one - and not that sad weird one like last year.

So think about me the next weeks.- and give me good vibrations
I´ll be around some days. It makes me happy reading your guys` posts -
HUGS to every one.

Hi Henriette  

I remember when you talked about your dad dying at the beginning of this year, and what a sad time that was for you then. I do send you all the good vibrations that I can to have the Christmas that you most desire this year.  

We'll be thinking of you... and best of luck with your term papers and exams... we're all rooting for ya! Remember to find time to relax and decompress... so important, and medicinal, actually, for us B's.

"URGENCY"!

Last night I figured out what I was trying to say re: B's.  I think we're basically analytical types, used to figuring things out in our lives somewhat on our own, and when we can't, we don't:

- DENY our need, as would, say, an O, who might convert neediness to anger
- DOUBT ourselves, get anxious internally but try to hide the need, as might an A

but, rather, being analytical types, we B's reach a point where a light goes off in our heads that says, "OK Time to Get Help!" and then: "Make sure the helper knows how desperate the situation is!!" And there's this URGENCY re need, for the B, as if to say: "Hey, if it weren't REALLY BAD I wouldn't be consulting anybody"...

That's it.  We B's are relatively Independent types, and when we make the decision to reach out for help, we're not Angry with the counselor, we're not Scared of what's happening, but we're recognizing the seriousness of the situation, and this can call forth all kinds of emotions in and of itself, that we're not accustomed to sharing. Maybe.  

Thought-work in Progress.

Thanks - I am feeling a little better- since my "professor " decided it was ok to get the paper fished in January instead

Exj-J
I think you are SO RIGHT
At least it fits almost 100 % on me.

BUT

Yesterday I had this weird reaction- I realized that when I freak out with my family and gets angry or sad- it is when they show too much weakness.
I think it is because I try to be strong and independent and it has to be really serious before I ask for help- so when I find my family showing weakness... It reminds me that I am weak as well.. And I loose it...
I had a stupid and very bad fight with Emma ( My daughter) a week a go and I got so upset because I realized I was really freaking out because she was sad  for no reason ( That was my thought in the situaton)
I don´t get it
All tests I have done ( to get a job) shows high on empati- that I am really good at understanding other people and their feelings and then I get so upset when my family shows weakness.

Just sending you lots of HUGS and thoughts and your daughter too - is she thinking about her granddad like you? Funnily enough today was my granddad's birthday - his death was really awful for all of us, and I was much older than your daughter...Also, I know I sometimes do far too much, I've always been the tough one, (I think that's part of being an older sister too) but sometimes if I feel I need help and nobody seems to care or notice without being asked then I got really annoyed at other people getting all the help they want - and i suppose this is when they are weak - so I wonder if it's the way I can feel with my family. Don't  beat yourself up about it - you're still wonderful  

Bs and Independence - wow, that is so true! Also not asking for help very easily. I think that fits my sis that's definitely a B and my friend here that's a B. Maybe the way we think/express ourselves is different therefore we can be easily misunderstood and learn early on to shut up and quietly keep our own counsel! I sometimes say something and people find it funny and I seem to get laboled as weird. Anybody else get that? Although I'm sure life experiences come into it too.

Oh yes, Ellie... the weirdness factor. And feeling misunderstood most of the time, too.

Yes... I have learned to "quietly keep my own counsel" as you so eloquently phrased it... much easier that way. But I think the world needs the voices of B's in it too so I have made conscious efforts in recent years to voice my perceptions and realities and not worry about how it is interpretted by others.

And I find it so important to surround myself with other weird people... or "socialize in alternative circles", as a friend puts it. They don't have to weird in the same way as I am... but I like being around people who choose to live a unique rather than conformative life.

Maybe it's just a B thing...

Hi Kristin

Yes, it is important to speak our truths in the right places and times - this is something I have just started to do, be much more vocal about who I am - this is about me saying "I have just as much right to be here as everybody else, and to voice my opinions". And yes, do you think it's coincidence that the one good friend I have made where I am living is a fellow weird B? I think not. Although we did meet through our Welsh classes, which isn't that weird! (not in my opinion anyway!).

I am finally giving myself permission to explore the world fully wherever  I feel led. How's this for weirdness  - I have just received the first instalments of  the Bardic level course for a Druidic order, which I am hoping will help deepen my connection with the world around me, living in tune with nature and all that,  and help develop my creativity. It is NOT a religion in case anyone thinks I'm getting religious.  Seems pretty B-like to me!

Love it!! The Welsh classes and the course for becoming a druid. How cool!


And deepening your connection to the world and nature, developing creativity,... yeah... you're a B all right.    How wonderful that you are allowing yourself to follow those inner impulses for self-exploration. Very inspiring!!

Yes we are different but sometimes that is a good thing. Alot of people I work with, usually O's with a few A's seem to think that there is only one solution to a problem. I can allways come up will several alternate solutions one of which is that maybe it isn't a problem at all. Maybe it is just the pattern sensing INTJ in me. About being independent my family is mostly B's with a few O's and we are about as independent as cats. The B's in the family can work togather on joint projects though.

Hey, how're all you B's (and half-B's) doing? Checking in at the Best Thread in Town!

Check out the Introvert/Extravert thread too: I think it would be interesting to poll B's in particular.  However, it'd be hard to extrapolate from any data we'd thus collect.  There are plenty of really extraverted B's out there making millions of dollars, not hanging out in a Forum...

How's Henriette? How's Ellie? New Hampshire Girl? Gulfcoastguy and all the rest? Where's Betul? Say Hello!

I was hoping someone would step in to keep this thread alive and I figured it would be you, exj_j...    

But don't worry... I was keeping my eye on it and wouldn't let it fall off into oblivion.


Yes... the Bee's have been rather quiet lately.... perhaps hibernating??? I know that living in a temperate climate, I tend to be less active this time of year, too.

Hi, doing pretty well. I'm just getting ready to go back to work after the new years holiday. Tomorrow I am going to get blood drawn)(drained?) and a week latter I'll know how bad the 2 month break in my excercise and eating routines that Katrina caused have affected my lipid and sugar levels. That will no doubt take half a day as I think the doctor added a new test on her little blue form. I am Intj on the meyers brigg test though all though the n rating wasn't very strong.

Hi everybody HAPPY NEW YEAR

Yes, I have been away - at my sister's for Christmas and then my other sister (with kids)came to us for New Year....busy time!

Henriette emailed me - her phone line has been down so is missing being on here, but is ok it seems.

Gulfcoastguy, hope your tests come out well.

From a book based on the Meyers-Brigg test, I think I assessed myself as INFP....

YES I AM BACK
Today my phone came up.
Some stupid girl got annoyed with my daughter a cut our line- It is sitting on the corner of our house.....

BUT I am sooo back.
Almost finished my paper for school - good thing amount not being tempted to do the www

Had a pretty decent christmas - only had to many cookies, marzipane and chocolate
BUT no real bad stuf so I am feeling fine
- just need to go back on my full fat dairy, veggies. meat/fish / fruit B diet again

. Got a very nice book about yoga - tried some of it.- oh my god (or gods) I am soooo stiff!

Well weather has kept us indoor- LOTS of snow and some days with snow blizzard made me stay on the sofa with books and hot cocoa ( good to be a B !)

I am actually even feeling ok about the the 1 year date for my dads death - somehow things has calmed down- however Igot a bit upset yesterday- one of my daughters friend ´s big sister died New Years eve, after having a blood clot in her brain. She was just 13 years old and seemed ok healthy...

I just couldn´t believe it- it made me so sad and had to think about life and I was even nice all day!
Emma thought :How weird my mum does not ask me to tidy up or shout today !

seriously it made me think a lot about how important it is to enjoy life

SO HAPPY NEW YEAR - ENJOY AND LIVE IT

Hugs to all of you

Henriette, good to have you back on the web!

I am still overindulging as there is still too much temptation in the house! (my stomach is coping very well, maybe helped by the dandelion tincture I  have started taking?)

I also know of a sudden death of a 9? year old girl, the daughter of our local garage salesman (altho didn't know her personally), from a brain haemmorrhage or something.This also happened at Christmas.

All my family are alive - but my two sisters are having major crises.... there's a lot of shaking up going on in the world at this time, I understand it to be like a waking up call for the world...

Hi there!    I found myself indulging in chocolates left over from Christmas so I took myself in hand and threw out almost a whole box of chocolates.    That took some will power, I'll tell you!  

I'm very glad for the calm atmosphere around here after a glorious Christmas celebration with the whole family.  All our grown-up kids and spouses and 3 grandchildren come over every Thanksgiving and every Christmas so it seems to me all I have been thinking about is food, even chocolate pies which I made.    I still manage to weigh the same but am waiting for my new prescription of Westhroid to arrive so I can improve my weight loss, hopefully.  I realize my expectations are too high at this point but nevertheless I can't seem to help myself!  

My exercising went by the boards this past month but I'm back on the treadmill and lifting my weights.  So, really, I'm enjoying this calm atmosphere   and then I'll look for something to rev up my life some more.

Good for your New Hamshire.
Well all of our homemade choclates are gone- and since they were made of almonds.honey, butter, dry fruts and really dark chocolate I think they were pretty harmless.
Well I haven´t put weight on

OH Ellie I am so sad to hear about your sisters and this little girl.
Makes me want to LIVE life even more .
Yes life is fragile isn´t it.
I don´t think this girl had any health problems... you know teens never look very healthy-I think she was pretty typical.
Emma told me that her parents had been told that there was no indications why ! But off course they are completely shocked.

I can´t help to think about two B´s I know who had blood clots- me and my granny.
When I was 20 I went on the pill- I did not live BTD at that time- but did pretty well foodvice since I lived in Dublin.  I had plenty of lamb, potatoes, carrots and cabbage.
After 1 month or so I had this severe pain in my left arm- went to hospital my bloodpressure was shy high and I they told me that I have had a minor blood clot in my arm.
Went off the pill and today I have absolutely NO indications that I should be in any risk .. I am still 15 kg overweigt but othervice very healthy.
THe other B was my grandmother. She was 93 when she had a blood clot in the brain and died- her LAST SUPPER  was CHICKEN ON RYE BREAD ! makes you wonder.........

Back to LIFE

I am really not good at planned exercise-
I like walking- climbing mountains(  a bit difficult her in Denmark)- swimming in the sea( In the summer )- physically work with a purpose- like cycling to the shops, digging the garden etc
- othervice I am really not great.
I got this book about yoga to brush up my memory ( I used to do it a lot) and I seem ok about that.

Yesterday I used Emmas step counter and I know I was sitting infront of the computer a lot that day- however I only took 1000 steps???? I just can´t believe it !-some one told me I should take 10 000 steps pr day.
Normally I would have walked about 30-45 min. but weather was bad and I was busy with my essay for school.

Any thoughts about numbers of steps pr day ?

So sad about those young children dying. It feels so wrong. I just heard that one girl I used to know (we lived at the same dorm in Copenhagen) died a few months ago from a brain tumor. She was in her early 30's. So sad...

Quoted from Henriette_Bsec
...She was 93 when she had a blood clot in the brain and died- her LAST SUPPER  was CHICKEN ON RYE BREAD ! makes you wonder.........


Haha, Henriette. If I were 93 I would eat what ever I pleased. Period!
Besides, when she made it this far on a Danish pork and rye bread diet, I'm sure she was pretty much immune to lectins.
Just like my granny who was 92 when she died. All her life she drank 10 cups of coffee a day and her favourite food was white wheat bread with butter and cheese. She hated vegetables - only ate them pickled - never ate fruit if not as marmelade (she made the most wonderful marmelade - mmmmmm!) and never drank a glass of milk. Dunno her blood type, but I don't think any blood type would fit into THAT diet!

Quoted from Henriette
- climbing mountains(  a bit difficult her in Denmark)


What? You have Møns Klint just around the corner!

Quoted from Henriette
Any thoughts about numbers of steps pr day ?


10.000 steps is the recommended amount. This november we had a competition at work, where we wore step counters and raced other work places. We could win a trip to the Virgin Islands. It was through Helse. Even though I stand and walk all day long at work, I don't take more than max 6000 steps during the 8 hours I normally work! That was a bit schocking - I thought it was way more! So I had to walk the dog or vacuum the whole house when I came home to hit 10000. Phew!

Yes I thought it was 10.000 steps- but I realised today that I had placed it wrong- so it was not sensitive enough- I missed a lot of steps- until now (afternoon) I have taken 8000 steps- and it has been pretty much a office day- however I went for a 30 min. walk.

Møns klint - yeah right - it is dangerous this time of the year!.

Old people eating weird diet:
I know for sure my geanny never ate weird oils-trans fat-margarine, E numbers or a massive amount of sugar.
She did eat some avoid food for b like
pork and rye bread- but chicken was a luxury and corn and tomatoes was not that common.
She had plenty of whole fat milk, butter, veggies and fruit grown in their own garden, she had eggsfrom her own chicks almost every day. Some fish and meat( well no lamb , but rabbit, beef and pork)
Her lifestyle- with lots of children and her beloved garden- would I consider perfect  for a B

I really don´t think a lot of people walk 10.000 steps pr day- but i recond it is one of the main reasons why people get fat today!

Ellie:

No, I'm pretty much "holding" at the weight I achieved in October, but the "holidays" intervened, and, though I've remained compliant, there's been alot of disorder in my eating.

BTW, The Dungeness crab season is underway.  And now we're into January/Feb., when they're at their sweetest.  I allow myself to nose in on this season.  I've tried them once, in December, and, y'know?  They didn't "do it for me" this time!  Am I weaned? Fine.  One more shot, in Jan. or Feb.
And that'll be it.  The guys down at the Oyster Depot are wondering where the heck I've BEEN!

You're absolutely right, Henriette. I too believe it's the transfats, E numbers, stress and sugar that kills off people early.

Actually I don't think we'll see more and more people getting over 100 years old, as they tell us on TV. I think in a few years time the number will fall again, because our generation is slowly killing itself with wrong food, not enough physical work and stress.

I'm sure if we asked both our grandmothers, none of them had ever experienced stress as we do today. If they had work (my grandmother worked in the accountant-department of a chocolate-factory before she got married) it's not at all comparable to what work is like today. That's what my 82 years old godmother tells me anyway, who worked as a typist at an office before she got married. They maybe had long hours, but there was plenty of time for chatting with your co-workers or run an errand if needed.
Come to think of it, my godmother follows the exact same diet as my grandmother did.

As we've discussed before, when asked, 100+ years old always seem to have had simple quiet lifes. Lots of them hard working people with lots of children and not much money. I can only think of Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller (95 years old Danish billionaire) who doesn't fit that picture. But still - I think he and his wife has kept their private life simple...

EXj-j. holding seems pretty good to me! I'm too scared to get on the scales (not that the ones we've got are accurate - they make you even weightier than you really are - no need for that! )

Henriette, we've been told 10,000 steps here too. I sent off for a pedometer but either  I didn't set it up properly or it was rubbish anyway - it wasn't even accurate in the house . It also said it wouldn't work except on the flat (not much use when you live in a mountaineous area !!) so didn't really use it at all. I should be doing a lot of steps going up and down our house, although haven't actually counted - we live in a four storey house with lots of stairs and my bedroom is on the top floor!!!

And I do think that having purer food gives you a better chance healthwise - both my "grannies" lived to be over 90...(although the men conked out sooner  .BTW, today we had local grass-fed lamb chops for tea - the texture and amount of meat is so much better than what normally comes from the local supermarket. Makes healthy eating a pleasure.

Did I tell I was reading a book on meditation? I was sent a free link to an e-book to download - only read a few chapters but quite interesting - looking at what exactly is meditation (eg and how it may differ from other techniques), the scientific research behind it, and how to do it..

Ellie it  sounds good- the lamb and the meditation
Well yesterday I reached 9570 steps so it was a good day-
Today I have been lazy( had a mayor headache for 3 days !!! ) so I have only reached 5000...
BTW I cured my headache by eating a lunch of pretty fatty stuff:fried egg( my first from my chick in months - the sun is coming back)- cheese and red pepper, and turkey and apple and a large glass of full fat jersey milk!
I realised that the whole week I have been very low in fat- and I was kind of hungry all the time.
30 minutes after my meal I was fine and felt no hunger for the first time in a week. So look out! being low fat can really trigger your health!.
I am starting to think that the guys at /www.westonaprice.org/index.html has a point about fat and food -
at least most of the stuff fits quite well for me as a B ( and btw about the whole fact about diets in the past and old grannies)
About Betul- she wrote in  the autumn something about being busy- but yes it is strange that one our B(ees) has disappeared

PS Special mention to Ellie: En route about a half hour ago, I knew I'd been heard. It really helped me to "look up".

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...

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...

Well I am not tall- kind of medium: 1.66 and my sister another B is 1.72 - however my friend ( B) is tall 1.82.

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)

Hey Ellie I thought UK was supposed to go metric like the rest of us
but you would be somthing like 1.58
and I am aprox 5.5
see this  http://www.worldwidemetric.com/metcal.htm

So you are a nonnie
well you get from neutrals: Ghee, walnuts, blackberry,blueberry,cherry,figs, raspberry  to beneficial- lucky girl
But as I recall a lot of things turn avoid as well and some gets neutral like pumkinseeds, soymilk and tomatos
AND lots more. I can´t remember if there is a whole list somewhere - but maybe some of your fellow  B nonnies can help you.?

Arlene, wow if that's English size that is big feet! I have small feet but wide (like the rest of me hee hee - my growth has gone outwards sigh ). My middle sis(another B) is about 5' 4" and her feet are I think size 6 which seems big enough. Still, there must be some advantage to big feet?

Henriette, yes, I know we are officially metric and that's what I learnt in school but even though shops now have to weigh things in kilos, they often still put it in pounds too - cos that's what most of us are more comfortable with! (but not having learnt the imperial system in school, I actually can't fully use it )In the papers this week there was talk about whether all our road signs (which are in miles per hour)should be changed for the Olympics into KPH - so all you Europeans don't get too confused (it will only cost about 80 million pounds or something and confuse everybody in this country but hey!). We Brits like to keep a little bit different to everybody else, or haven't you noticed?!

And this is the saddest thing, because of the oestregen thingy some of those fruits I can't eat even though I love them (I am so hoping to get that sorted!)Also soya milk and I'm not sure about tomatoes - I gave them up before BTD as I'm pretty sure they don't agree with me...

Anyway, my intuition was right,at least!

We here across the Pond were told we'd be switching to metric WHEN I WAS in grade school, 40+ years ago.  NEVER HAPPENED. Gave us quite a scare, though.

Hello B's

I've skimmed thru this thread-since I'm so new I have to have a look around and was glad to find a thread just for us but I'm not sure what it's for so I hope I don't ruin it.  ha ha
You guys have been discussing magnesium.  Is there a specific kind we should have?  What's best? Oxide, Citrate?
No one said they found a good B cracker yet.  Hopfully there will be one someday.  I love rice crackers and nut thins and they don't bother me but I could eat the whole box.  Especially with salmon and cream cheese spread.  
What are the best recipe threads for me to look at?

I am a size 6 in UK, a size 8,5 in US and a size 39 in EU.

Well the typebase are good- but please dubblecheck there are plenty of mistakes in it.

BB you can´t ruin this thread - we chat about everything here

I think the The magnesium citrat is best but I can´t find it here so when my UK supply ruins out I have use the oxid.

You could try to make things yourself.
Most packaged things contains really bad oil for B´s ( well most people really)
This year we made homemade veggie and potato chips/crisps fried in oliveoil or grapeseed oil.
I go for the nuts most of the time if I want something crunchy like almonds, macadamian or walnuts roasted on a hot dry pan - a bit of spices added last.

Doing just fine down here in Katrina land. Extreme Make over had a special about our area tonight on ABC. The park they couldn't identify was De La Mar Park. I've been busy installing new flooring and painting (no hurricane damage, just remodeling). Also I'm getting ready for the new gardening season, been weeding out the flower gardens, transplanting tomato plants, and the Ocean Springs Herb Festival is this weekend. I plan to take Trudie the boxer and go see if I can find some new plants over there. Confederate Jasmine to grow over the mail box sounds good. It should be the last cold snap this weekend then summer will come rolling in.
 Let's have a rollcall: Heinrieta, Kristin, all the B's and the wannaB's!

Hey hey... still here... rolling with the punches... although I think it is hormonal fluctuations doing all the punching lately... jiminee!!! I haven't felt quite like myself for the past few days.

I am preparing to be the US representative at the European BTD gathering in Samos... I think the B's just might be the largest blood group represented with myself, Ellie, ion and Alek and the better half of Isa in attendance. Wow... wouldn't that be cool to be the majority for once!! Goat cheese for everyone, I say!!

Also... still hiking although difficult to do in the mud and ice this past week... exploring some new trails and getting somewhat lost but what breath-taking views I stumbled upon!! Makes getting lost not quite so bad... Watching the ever-changing shapes of ice in the mountain streams and the pattern of water over, under, and around the ice sculptures creating, transparent, lacy edges so fragile and delicate. In watching the water flow down the cañon I feel held in the hands of time...

Still winter here, though.... Dreaming of Spring....

My crocuses are now in full bloom... and I am remembering Zareen.

I don't know if I could take it, Kristin.  I attribute a certain substantial share of my contrarianism to my B'ness.  To be counted amongst a majority sorta sticks in my craw...

My birthday was Thursday March 23.  Last October this new kid started in our office.  It is his first real job after receiving his Master Degree.  He played football for the U of West VA.  He knew absolutely no one in Illinois but he people in our office.  He was going to spend his 26th birthday alone at home.  My son’s friend whose birthday is also in October was home on leave from the Marines.  I decided to take them and 8 other friends of my sons out to dinner at Buco De Pepo which serves family style Italian dinners. Then I took my son, his GF, his buddy & GF & my co-worker to a movie.  Well on Thursday, to my surprise, this young co-worker made me a double layer Angel Food cake with cool whip frosting.  It had fresh strawberries on top and in the middle.  Of course I had to have some and share the rest with my other co-workers.  (Peppermint, we did this in the conference room.)  Tonight, Friday 3/24/06, during Sci-Fi Friday, my son brought me a bottle of wine and a piece of French Silk pie from Baker’s Square.  So I have had my birthday sugar high that should last me until next year.

Happy bithsday VERY late  Arlene
I am / have been so busy that I have not really been on the net much. I am doing 3 final papers at the time:
Well I thought I was good at multitasking but..........
AND spring is here the snow is gone- it is raining like crazy but its luke warm 10-12 celcius- yesterday it was sunny and I picked up rubbish in the garden- I had forgotten how effective gardenwork is on my stress.
My garlic in the garden is 4 cm high - the crocus is everywhere but my bees died -this long bloody winter so I am the only B around here... so I better change my signature! and get anew family before the apple and cherry trees bloom.

O you guys.  You're bringing a lump to my throat.  You're SO awesome
Please keep doing whatever you're doing, please.  I really feel supported! And you KNOW me.  You know I wouldn't ask if it weren't ... needful....

* * * * * * *

A couple of days later.
Still struggling, and on a deeper, deeper spiritual level.
Keep it up, guys.

It's "Holy Week", BTW....

Hope it's a lovely time for the rest of you! I'm thinking of you, and grateful for you!!

I'm happy, Exj_j, to report we're still singing traditional, lovely music which is the kind I'm more comfortable with and gives me wonderful shivers.    

I attend a congregational church (UCC) which is prevalent in New England.  My preference is Presbyterian (USA) but there are very few here.

Now you know!  I'm pretty traditional.  Actually, I'm a classic.

Hello Bees.
(And Half-Bees)( )

For those of you who've been amazingly praying for me, I'd like to share with you just a tiny tip of the iceberg of what I'm dealing with here.

Go to the Thread entitled "Forum Administrative Question(s):Santé/Exj", for a small sampling.

And, yes, I covet your continued heaven-storming on my behalf, to make up some of my own shortfall.

Otherwise, Bee happy and Bee healthy...With Love, Santé/Exj

Dear Fellow B's,
Enjoyed reading this thread.  You all sound like family.  I fit the B type so good, it's scary.  I

believe in prayer, too, and will remember those who have asked.  I think of myself as an older,

wiser, B.  I was introduced to Dr. D's book ER4YT when it was first published and thought, this

really makes sense.  I especially enjoy LR4YT and CRFYT.   Basically I have been following BTD all

these years,  not 100% compliant, but  stopped eating the big, bad things like chicken, corn and

wheat.   I'm retired, have four grown children (2-ABp, 1-Ap & 1-Bp)  I hope I can be helpful where

needed.   Living in Hawaii. .

Hi Doris

Welcome to our little B club. Any other Bs on Hawaii or is Doris our first? Can you see  a difference with all those different Blood Types in your home?

Henriette, I hadn't worked out the P either! Hope you are keeping your head above water with all the college work. And hope your chicks are not too unhappy.

Exj-j hope you're getting your computer sorted out. I'm lucky - mine is in the shop at the moment but I'm able to borrow my mum's.

Hi gulfcoast guy. how are you?

Well, I'm off to Samos next week, where I believe the Bs are well represented! I'm also moving house - well mostly. Furniture is going on Friday. Then on Monday I will spend the night there for the first time in 3 years. Hopefully the electrician will have done his little bit of work. And on Tuesday, the day I leave for Samos (travelling day before to be near the airport - flight leaves at 9am eek) I have an appointment with a doctor who has to assess whether I'm medically eligible for the benefit I receive (I get what's called Incapacity Benefit, which I get because I have worked in the past but have been not well enough for a few years). I still need this money at the moment, as although I have improved a lot, I have not lived completely alone for 2 and half years, and need to get used to that first before worrying about working).So any prayers for me, greatly appreciated. (my mum will be hiding my suitcase in the car).  I am basically an honest person, so I wouldn't lie but I sometimes forget how bad I can be which is what they need to know.

Hi Ellie, Good to hear from you. About your interview with the medical beauracracy, It might help to write down everything that you want to say in advance and have copies of your medical records on hand. That way you won't forget important thoughts/arguments. Yeah I know, organization from a B! Anyhow, good luck in your new abode.

So here's a question about this B and individuality thing.

I've always seen myself as pretty offbeat, not typcial in many ways.  However, don't a lot of O's and A's feel that way?

My husband is an O and is as offbeat as they come.

So how does one differentiate the unique way a B might be individualistic compared to the other types?

Just wondering.

Gee Exj_j, you're brave to try some chicken!  I'm scared silly to touch it.  Strokes are not my sense of fun.  Really and truly I haven't gone near chicken since 1998 and I can truthfully say I don't miss it at all.  It's probably mind over matter in my case.

Are you really afraid that if you taste some chicken, you will suffer a stroke? Thank God I don't live in such fear!

I didn't feel "brave" at all: It's just the way it worked out that day...Later there was some tabbouleh too, the least of all evils presented; I chose it over the hummous, etc., because it was MOSTLY PARSLEY!!!

Yes I tried it accidentially in a stuffed mushroom. I try not to do it as it seems to just sit in my digestive tract like a brick. I really don't even like to smell it cooking anymore. Unfortunately it seems  to be in my old favorite Hot and Sour soup. At least I am a nonnie and can still eat my homegrown heirloom tomatoes. Just got through planting okra also. Okra and tomatoes ummm!

once I gave a statement about my earliest impressions with chickies ptuuuiiii everytime when I was forced to eat such stuffies I felt bad after...means about in my earliest youth (3-4 years old )
and I never ate it again....I've got like this...but when it was no in my mind it was n o !!!!
Obviously my NT-character showed very early that I've been more than a choleric-one and this saved my a...hem ;)  


aannnddd I have something to add here...... in Samos the taste of turkey was without any kind of après-gouts....just supperrr , fine and easy to chew...here in Switzerland, I guess perhaps are they only killing the older beasts ...so far they do have all such a irxy taste....even when written *organic raised*.... :p  
hey does it matter the white flesh and the red-ones? In the darker there's muchmore
tryptophane...ok...but what's about the white-one I remember ours was almostly white ......
Thaaaasssoooooo where did ya bought those giggles ?????

I had chicken for the first time this Easter  and it was good( just a taste) - a large organic bird from the neighbour - tasted better than the turkey breast my mum made for me! but I hate the way chicken make me feel

Our turkeys taste very different -some taste okbut  a little rough - not like chickentexture  at all. Most turkey here has a taste that I am not crazy with... I must say I prefer the white mildtasting meat... BUT I alwys marinate in lemonjuice, wine or yoghurt- then it a OK substitute to chicken - but not the same !

BTW I must share :
I am just so
today !
Last monday I poured coffee into my little best friend: minimac and it went out like
So we split apart - and put it a dry place to dry out and this afternoon it started up- no problemas - just telling me the date was wrong   I am so relieved that I do not have to buy a new one - thank you apple - for making Henriette proof products  
So after a week with rainy weather - no computer - I am back- had more than 30 mails in my mailbox

I'm stubborn in many ways but not when it comes to following the basic guidelines of BTD.  I have had no problem taking chicken out of my life now and forever more.  It does smell good when my A husband is baking it in the oven, I will admit.

Gail I think your Q? drowned  

Well I am sure that other bt can feel individualistic as well - so I am not sure how to differentiate the unique way we B feel -as you put it.

I do think that MORE B´s are individualitic than O´s and A´s  as a group... but that is just my experience.

Great question!

I have to admit, that I absolutely DON'T believe in the bloodtype's connection to the personality.

I consider myself very NOT like everyone else. To the point of making a point of it.

If everyone else is doing something - I'm NOT. If everyone else is raving about something - I'm NOT. If I see people all running in one direction, I wander off in the opposite direction. If everyone else is excited and/or aggitated - I act cool and calm.

I don't think my B husband thinks the same. He's OK with being like others (He's not - of course - wouldn't have chosen a run-off-the-mill-husband, now would I?! ) and with following the same trends as everyone else, if he likes.

In my opinion it lies in our upbringing, mostly. I'm brought up with, that I'm an individual and NOT like everyone else. (We're a family of O's and A's) So it's absolutely OK to be out of the ordinary.
My husband's family (O's and B's) is more concerned about what the neighbours are thinking and don't like to break out of the common patterns.

Poly it is so funny to read this - you should have been my big sister

My dads family sounds just like your husbands family

while my mums family was VERY concervative University Educated- oriented-
I wonder how she became such a wild O ?- and got 2 very individualistic B daughters and a even worse O granddaughter
So I agree I don´t really think it has any thing to do with BT

Aww... someone called me "little"  

But Isa is right, I do carry the nonnie gene... does that make me half nonnie??

And Poly... I come from a very conservative family big into following the norms and not straying too far outside of dominant cultural expectations. And yes... I am called the "oddball" of the family.

I think it is a whole host of experiences, genetic predispositions, individual temperaments, that make up our unique personality expression.

Thanks for responding to my thread.

I think the whole thing gets complicated.  Sort of like astrology,  Jungian typology, enneagram types, etc.  But with all of these, despite similarities across groups, there may be a certain "essence" that is similar within a group.  With some people it just shines forth, and with others it's more subtle.

Still, I know that my Type O husband and his Type O sister are pretty offbeat and as individualistic and non-conformist as they come.  


On the OTHER hand, maybe the B individuality thing is more like the nomad type as a seeker, or someone who searches out new ideas.  This could include thoughts, ideas, goals, etc.  They may be more fluid and open to new ideas and playing around with new directions.

My offbeat O husband can be pretty rigid and stubborn, and wedded to his "offbeat" beliefs.  But I am more likely (despite my initial stubbornness) to consider other views.

Just some thoughts.

Gail, luv: This might seem like an unfairly heavy homework assignment, but:

The "B & Individuality" Thread (preceding this one, which is its second generation) began over a year ago, featuring the answers to your question.  I think you'd find it really interesting to go back to it (It's considered a "sticky" thread) and read through it, and then pick up this one ("II") at the beginning.  We B's have been getting to know each other and dealing with this "Individuality" issue together for a long time, and we welcome you by our desert campfire...

I was going to write this to you sooner, but I was...lazy...or too busy watching the clouds commute across the sky

Wasn't there a thread about this somewhere? It was based upon one of Dr.D.'s blogs or an Ask Dr.D-thingy about that subject - the heterozygote scretor.

I can't remember what it said, but it was something about being a half-way non-secretor. I'll have to try and search for it again (where's Lola the search-wiz, when you need her, hm?? )

Funny thing is, after Isa mentioned it, I looked the O-nonnie-diet up in my LR4YT. I never before payed it any attention - I always knew I was a seccie, even before the test.
So I looked the nonnie-diet up, and - lo and behold - I eat like a nonnie!

You know me - I love food - I'm totally omnivorous! There are not many food items I don't like or don't agree with me. Turns out, that every single thing I have an aversion or bad reaction to is an O-nonnie-avoid. Even the frequencies and portions fit: I eat protein at every meal, and spelt is a rare treat - I gain weight if I eat too much spelt. Funny, huh?!

OK - I'll now shut up and leave you B's in peace! *Poly makes a B-line*

Aw, you can't be everywhere at once, Lola - though I must admit I'm amazed how you can look things up and reply on almost everything and almost everywhere. Just amazing!

Anyway, my memory about this subject was so vague - my PM would have been: "Lola - where's that article about that thing with the thing where you're halfway a thing, you know?!?"

Now, how long do you think, I'll have to wait for an article that says: Change in rating for coffee - now beneficial for O's!!!

B's: Hello there!  There are a number of new-b's in the Forum, and I'm sure we B's would like to welcome them into our special family.
Also, it's been awhile since we've had a pow-wow.  How is everyone?

After I posted the Dairy blog a couple of weeks ago (Note: My blogger-name is "Santé_j", for you newbies), I made one of the recipes: the Shrikand... I'm looking for a smiley that says what I wanted to say about this amazing dessert, but it doesn't exist...
DO try it out for yourselves.  We're so Blessed to B able to eat it.

For my part, I've lately had some avoids here and there, and, I've gotta say.  I do so much better on my bennies and neutrals.  BUT: You can't beat Double Rainbow's Chocolate Chocolate Mint ice cream.  Don't worry, it's only available at ONE shop in this town, and I just order a scoop on a cone, oh, 6-7 time a year.  DEE-lish!

So: Where are y'all these days? Newbies, Jump right in!

Same old place. I just got through eating leg of lamb slow roasted in Shiraz with portabello mushrooms, vidalia onions, carrots and fresh rosemary. Poor dog had to eat dog food since she is getting sort of plump.  It is 95 F here with no rain in sight, so I had to water the tomato and okra plants. They are full of big green tomatos but no ripe ones yet. Tomatos....one of the few nonnie benefits. Had a pretty intense hour and a half yoga class but sad to say I can't do Wheel pose yet. Hand stands are progressing though. Hasta la vista.

Passed my exam in  Psychology at University today with a VERY good grade I am so happy since it was my most difficult subject.
It is 29 c /84 F here and the sun is VERY strong for this mild country - everybody seem to get burns...
. I am just about to go out and do some work with my bees I hope they are all out collecting nectar in this wonderfull weather.
My garden grows insane- we have had lots of different weather - now new potatoes, asparagus and strawberries with CREAM are ready. I can´t believe how much better homegrown- oldfashioned strawberries taste.
My tomatoes ( for my little 0) has just started to set small green fruits- I think they weill be ready in 4-6 weeks time.

Welcome to the new B´s

And I really did wave to you from Amsterdam when I was there!!

No- I need to do a small exam more on monday : Skolen i samfundet "

That is why I want to get my act together and fix my diet and exercise AGAIN ( I wrote more in the FS thread )
9 weeks at home with the garden and myself, books  relaxing...
But I hope that this crazy heat won´t be non stop or my garden will be ...... It looks like a august dried out garden
I plan to enjoy this since it is my last LONG vacation untill I get a pension at 70 years or so ?

I chose neuropsychology :
Girls and boys brains developement- how can I use the difference in the classroom and should I ?

I used Erik Erikson  and  Daniel N Stern in a combo with a finnish guy called Matti Bergstrøm.

I think I got such a good grade because I chose something independently that we did not do in class, it was mainly Freud, piaget, Vygotsky and that type of stuff.

Oh how I know theory and practise is not the same Isa
- I think my poor Emma has been pretty confused: some days mummy uses her psychology other days it is just not a very nice mummy.....

Yes -5 weeks holiday!
Poly why do you think I chose teacherhood

You arewelcome Isa
I prefer Jung as well - I just had to use Erikson etc  because they fitted so well to the theory about brain developement.

It's great to hear from some of you.  GCG: That lamb sounds G-R-E-A-T (think: Tony the Tiger, from Sugar Frosted Flakes commercial)!

Here in San Francisco, we're enjoying our signature cool weather.  Fog season is trying to come in a bit early.  We're pretty much guaranteed to be Pea Soup'ed in time for July 4th, when I perennially wonder why CROWDS go down to the waterfront for the Fireworks "Display"! They can't see 'em!!!

However, from my hilltop window, I can see above the fogline, and it's pretty dang impressive...

Hi everybody!

congratulations, henriette on your exam success, how do you have time to to do everything?! Are you sure you can't come and help sort my garden out? (I have rhubarb, gooseberries and blackberries which grow themselves quite happily!)

I'm busy just trying to get my new house sorted and enjoying the beautiful sunshine we've been having (it's not as unbearably hot now as it was, just nice summer weather)

Hi Ellie-
Will try and write you later this weekend.
Well I have found that working in the garden calms be down- and somehow I remembers my stuff better IF I take breaks from the studying and sits in the garden...

I would LOVE to come and see you - but money is SO tight that I basically have to live from the garden the rest of the summer.
Emma has grown so much that I had to buy her new clothes and shoes for a fortune
I have to stop feeding her O diet I think and get her on the normal sugar, wheat and cola diet

Hey Henriette!

Congrats on your exams!! THE reason you could not join us on Samos.
Well, there will be other Samosses!!! No doubt, but as Kristin already said, the first Samos holiday was really the first one, and will never repeat itself..

Hey Ellie! How are you doing in your new home??   Doing the garden and growing your own foods?? Awesome!! I just saw your post to Henriette... Hope you are enjoying the new home and have settled more or less. I know that last part takes time..

Wow!! 5 weeks holiday Henriette, yeah that is the 'fun' with those professions!!!

I had my week holiday on Samos and maybe some days in the next few months.
Still a lot to do in my office and extension plans regarding my practice..
Always on the move with such a 'hot' profession inside the BTD..

Take care

OMG why are some people soo lucky  hey, you better enjoy it, as it is in Denmark and in Holland, you never know when you can stop working... hhhmmm with these 'older' people getting older, there will be no money left when we reach the age of 65 or even older!!!

There is one thing I don't understand, still the bigger part of the populations doesn't adhere to the BTD and still they grow soo old... Just imagine when all start the BTD!! We all grow older, but.... and that is the difference: on BTD we do not want to stop working, because we stay healthy till the age of 100 or older!!!
So the pensions won't cost millions anymore

So that is solved then!!!  

Hey B-gal enjoy your holiday and stay 'cool' during heatwaves!!!

Isa   she has been on this diet half of her life... so no I would not... I can´t afford to buy that kind of junk anyway.
I am sure she would enjoy some swiss -teutonic - she is quite gifted for language..
She will begin studying /learning german after the holidays when she attends 7th grade(year 8 )
and she is already playing with the words. My german are soooo rusty .. I can read it so and so... but speak it -nope .

Hi again

henriette, Yep, have to start feeding Emma junk food, or send her out begging hee hee. My house is not really ready for proper visitors yet, so it's ok really not to come - when you're a wealthy (!) teacher maybe...

Cocky thanks for asking - not doing any real gardening yet - anything that's growing is doing it by itself!

Anyway, better go and cook my tea - lean beef mince, sweet potato, broccoli and red pepper, i think.

It's watermelon season.  Plum season. Berry season (Please Pass the CREAM). Lots of good stuff for smoothies.  Some fruits are so juicy you can save the juice and throw 'em in the blender with yogurt/kefir...MMMM.

Pluot Plums are in season! Heavenly! Move over, pineapple!
Are all you B's at the B-each? I myself have been away from the Site for a week.
We had a "heat wave" here for a few days (in the 80's). Hope everyone is thriving.

I was out of town at a continueing education seminar.  I managed to pick some blue berries wednesday but the drought has really hurt them. There is rain today though so my tomatos will be happy. The temperature has been from 95 to 100F during the day lately.

It was 52 degrees and foggy this morning, but the sun is out now, so it's probably about 70.  Anyone who needs to cool off, come on over to the Bay Area!

Had a lovely midsummers Eve:
Good friends, lukewarm danish evening 61 F,
Good food and wine: veal, chiliprawns, couscous with herbs and grilled asparagus, red peppers, onions, watermelonsalad with feta, houmous, white chocolatecake, wirh strawberries on top- yes I survived.

We lighted the bunfire at 22- standing under the oaktrees at the seaside singing sad but wonderfull danish songs about the dansih summer: never knowing if it is hot and summer or mild with thunders and rain - just like a yound blond woman
We could see other bunfires along the coast- one feels so connected with ones past- knowing that our ancestors have done the same for thousend of years ( well really on the 20/21 ths- along came church....)

I am so tired to day- how can one go to sleep with the heat from a fire- the quiert sea so blue- the bats flying around in the treetops?
The night is so short from 2200- 4.30 one have to feel alive on a day as this- Happy midsummer

Well, here in New Hampshire we have a flood watch going again!  We're having way too much rain!  There might be a couple of beautiful days and then *bang* it's raining again.  One good thing, though, is that the flora and fauna are growing great guns.  I've always heard about how green Ireland is and I think we're giving a little competition here.  

My daughter-in-law is of Scandinavian descent and loves the idea of bonfires.  She has one every year during her birthday celebration.  Everyone gathers round.

I've been quiet lately because I have been seeing my husband through a stent procedure with following complications of fluid around the lungs making it hard for him to breathe.  The doctor is working on it and I am glad to say my husband is much better, now.  He has some tests ahead of him this week.  He's breathing so well, now, and looking good that I'm keeping my airline ticket to Pennsylvania next week to visit my sister.  We're going to play a lot of piano duets, shop at Theodore Presser for more music and visit tea houses.

NHG-Oh I hope he is getting better.
I have never been to NH- however I would love to go to Eastcoast in general- but I have lived in Ireland- and yes it is green there almost too green
We could really use some rain - so please send it over to us ( a few nights rain would be great)- normally it is first dry in August- but this year summer came in May- and I have to water my strawberries and Raspberries if I want some later.

Ohhh, Henriette, I would so love to send you some of our rain!!!!  It's funny how we could have such different weather, isn't it?  

Do you mean Ireland's greenery looks almost artificial?  Is that how green it is?  I don't think I'll ever get there to visit.  There are so many countries I would like to see.  At the moment, as you know, I'm sticking close to home and husband.  Thanks, he is doing much better and we'll know more after a few more tests.

Yes when I stayed there - I found the winter so green
- I mean Denmark is mild as well- but if one vists during march and april the grass will be brown green here- but In Ireland - especially at the westcoast the grass was sooooo green. No wonder the lambs taste good and that they used to celebrate their fine yellow butter in the springtime.

Aha!  I buy Kerrygold butter which comes from Ireland.  (At least, I hope it does!) It tastes soooo delicious.

I'm sorry to hear that your husband isn't well. I'm happy to hear he's on the mend, though, and hope he'll fell much better soon!

Quoted from New_Hampshire_Girl
...visit my sister.  We're going to play a lot of piano duets, shop at Theodore Presser for more music and visit tea houses.  


This sounds like you and your sister will have a wonderful time together. I hope it will be possible for you to make the trip!

Playing music together is a pleasure I really miss. My sister and I did that a lot when we lived in the same town. She played the piano and I the flute. Heh, that was fun.

Thank you Exj-j and Poly.  My husband has some more tests this week but he is feeling so much better I can visit my sister with a very clear conscience.

The piano playing with my sister will be very therapeutic.  It would be beautiful to hear the flute playing along with us.  Music is wonderful for the soul.

Poly did you play the flute ?- so did I :
first for years I played blokfløjte ( sorry guys I don´t know the english word)and at 10 I played transverse flute until I reached teenage life high school and sadly lost interest- got involved in students politics and boys.

NHG - what a fabulous orchestre we would be!!!

Quoted from New_Hampshire_Girl
Aha, Henriette!   Today just might be the day!!!!!!  


ITA!!! Not long ago I found my flute in the attick - it had been burried under my stuff when I moved in with my husband 8 (8!?! Is it really 8??? ) years ago. Now I only need to find my music sheets, and I'll be playing away to my heart's content!

Quoted from Henriette_Bsec

Hah, again we could be sisters, Henriette!!!
I started playing blokfløjte (recorder, I believe is the English name) when I was 7, and shifted to the flute when I was 15. I continued to get lessons until I left school at 18. My teacher said she would coach me if I wanted to go to the music acadamy (Konservatoriet) in Copenhagen. Eeek!!! I have not an artistic bone in my body - well not enough for a proffessional music carreer anyway - so I said no thanks... Phew!

Still, I love to play just for the fun of it. How nice it would be to find a group of people to play with!

Well here it is pleasant hot 25 c / 77 F  and a mild east wind
I am planning another day in the garden.
Yesterday I used all day to weed my vegetable patch.
Today I need to pick at least 4 pounds strawberries and do something about some baby plants that ought to have moved on from the box to the flower bed long ago..
Saturday I harvested  25 glass/ pounds honey.
This early honey was so thick and dark - almost greek style- it must have been the very high summer like weather we have had the last 2 months.

Yes it is good to be a B

Hello Kristin and Heinriette, I everybody is having a great monday. Kristin it would be about an hour and a half drive to Gulf Shores more or less depending on traffic. Meeting in Mobile would be about half way. If you are going to be in the area PM me and I'll give you my cell #. I think we have a BTDer in Fairhope which is only a few minutes from Gulf Shores. I don't recall her being a B though. Peppermint Twist would be a bit farther than me in the Sarasota Florida area.
   Heinriette 77F would be a pleasant spring day for me. It is good to hear about your honey, I remember when my family harvest honey from a wild be tree. It was very dark honey. My grandmother looked at it for a few minutes, chopped up pecan nuts, added flour, vanilla, honey and maybe eggs and made the best cookies I have ever had. She never used a recipe for anything, just a country farm wife who had been cooking for a large family since she was 14. I have a lot of tomatoes to pick and freeze today and tomorrow but it will be a while till my okra is ripe.
  Time for the rest of the Bs to wander in.

OK: Here I am, gcg, wandering in.  I just searched-up the thread and teased it out.
I've missed you guys.  I've been away from the Forum and blogging for the past week, totally, and might not be back for awhile, either.  So, blog-wise, you'll just have to catch up on my Archives before I post again, tho' I'm full of rough drafts.  Thank God it's because I'm so swamped with business right now.

I still don't have my own computer, and my Stalker is Stalking like crazy, so if anything bizarre happens here, concerning me, you'll know it's NOT ME...

Love y'all.

I hope that is just a forum stalker and not the Leave- a -dead- horses -head in your bed type! If it is the later, it is time to be calling in the cops. If it is the former it is time to hire a hitgeek to trace him down and then report him.

I wonder if this has the record as the longest lasting thread. Probably would if the first version was combined with it. We are missing a few though like U2dan. Maybe they will migrate through.

My mother spent the last three days at my house helping with renovations and cleaning. She is and O though, didn't appreciate my lime habenero cheese cake.The poor dog was even guarding her bones to keep them from going in the trash.

Well the cheese cake recipe came from foodtv.com. Just search the recipe base using the word lime  to search with. It was one of emerills recipes. The only sugstitution I made was to substitute a half cup of vegetable glycerine for the one cup of sugar although I used the 2 tablespoons of sugar. You'll see the reason why I kept those 2 tablespoons when you read the recipe. Oh and unless you have an asbestos lined mouth you might want to cut the 3 habenero peppers down to 2, they are known as the hottest peppers in the world for a reason.

Heinriette "tired of strawberrys and cream" poor baby! Oh well at least blueberries will grow around here. Limes are real cheap in this area right now due to all the Mexican immigrant workers I guess. I might try that cheesecake without the peppers.

Seriously though we seem to have lost a lot of our B posters from a year ago. Maybe the new ones will start posting here.

Hi Kristen! Yes my forty(cough, cough)birthday was tuesday the 25th. I spent the first 3 hours of it helping a survey crew chop through the heaviest underbrush I have ever seen. We were trying to survey for a new highway in temps near 100F and high humidity. of course then I seriously annoyed a hive of yellow jacket wasps who chased me out of there with 6 plus stings to the arms and rear end. I happen to be allergic so I had to stop and go take Benadryl. The next day next verse, same as the first so I took a day off to get the venom out of my system. Today we went back and completed the initial survey work. I finally figured out what was the matter, I use a shampoo with teatree oil in it. I skipped washing my hair this morning and no problem. I hope you found the recipe for the habenero lime cheesecake, I think one has to be a B to appreciate it. Except for yoga in the morning, and picking my okra, I am going to take the day off and drive to Whole Foods in New Orleans and restock on Sodium Laurel Sulfite free shampoo, shaving cream, and toothpaste then see where my muse takes me.

Oh happy birthsday GCG  - I think Kristin will be the next B right - then Ellie then I or ?

Sound horrible 100 F and wasps stings ....

Here it has finally cooled a bit down -to more normal 78 F - but still almost no rain in 7 weeks. - my garden looks horrible I am not so sure that I like global heating
But the fruits has been brilliant  - very strong flavour- no watery . But I have to use a fortune in water to keep my kitchen garden alive. I have started to do some work indoor - painting my larder- I have forgotten how much work it takes BEFORE painting - but it gave me a chance to finally kick a few avoids out for both B´s and O´s- only left is pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds - OK for Emma - and I´m not that tempted to indulge in theese.
Hope all B´s are OK- new and old ones

Just checking in.  I wouldn't trade our weather with GCG for anything but I do find myself complaining about our weather this summer.  Either it's raining or it's hot!  Not the kind of New England weather that is legendary and what at the moment I'm yearning for!!!!!!

Just to keep you informed, my husband got much worse before he got better.  His breathing got worse and worse until he was hospitalized and both the pulmonologist and cardiologists were conferring.  To make my story short, they fixed an atrial fibrillation they had discovered and they have given him mucho medicine to take to get rid of the fluid buildup.  He came home from hospital this week.  He sleeps at night with room air oxygen which is provided by a neat pumping thingy and there is supplemental oxygen here if he needs it, which he hasn't, thank goodness.  He had empyema as a kid and as a result has one full lung and one partial lung so he does not have the breathing capacity of most people.  He did build up his lung power with much swimming and rowing as an adolescent and that was a very fortunate thing.

As for music, my daughter celebrated her birthday this week by selecting a brand new Yamaha sterling silver flute.  It has a beautitious sound!!! (I don't think that's a word, do you?  )  So, the beat goes on.

Henriette, I wish I could send a little of our water your way!  We're having wonderful (not) thunderstorms that keep cropping up here and giving us too much rain.  Between that and the hot weather I find myself wishing for September for the first time, ever.  I don't usually wish my time away and I don't want winter to come any closer.

Exj-j, you must get rid of that stalker.  That's just too scary to think about!

Nice to get back in touch with you Bs again.  In fact, this whole forum is quite wonderful!!!!!!

Hi again folks. Happy Belated Birthday GCG.  Best wishes to you husband New Hampshire Girl. i am sure he will feel better with all the beautiful music from that new flute. BTW I also played the flute at school altho really badly, i have to say. (although i did once beat a really good player in a school competition which was quite bewildering to me).

Today i met a group of people to celebrate Gwyl Awst, trad on 1st Aug, celebration of the first fruits of the harvest. We were right overlooking the sea, and although it was quite windy it stayed dry. I picked the short straw so had to run around after the Corn King, before striking him down with my sickle. (i was the 'hag'!) We took food to share and I made a kind of Gooseberry Fool - consisting of home grown pulped gooseberries, a bit of agave nectar, and a tiny bit of cream. A bit tart but I think it was quite good myself, considering it was the first time for making anything like that and the original recipe called for milk, which i substited with the ricotta. Anyway, most of it has come back so i will get to eat it myself. (luckily there's not too much anyway).

Now the blackberries are starting to grow, so i will be able to experiment with those soon.

Thank u debra. hope you are enjoying the summer.  actually pretty much all the other food on offer at this party was full of avoids, but i did my best!

Henriette, we have had a good lot of rain again the last few days - down in the south of England they have a drought, while we are apparently shipping our spare water to the Arabs! I hope you enjoy your home grown honey.

I thought I replied on your thread. Anyway, I would eat something light like fruit about an hour before exercising and eat lunch after exercising. My yoga teacher specifically tells us not to eat within one hour of yoga class.

Hey you clever Bees!

I need some suggestions for some anti-depressant power-food for a B nonnie.

Hubby takes Efexor 75 mg for depression, and it helps him (and me ) a lot. But now with autumn approaching he is getting more tired and quiet. I don't want him to up the Efexor, so I thought maybe some B-power-foods would be good for him!

Suggestions?

Is he taking B vitamins?  Also, you might do a little research into taking extra vitamin B6 besides the B-complex.

how about licorice DGL'?
gingseng, Panax ginseng (Korean ginseng), Eleutherococcus senticosus (Siberian ginseng), Boerhaavia diffusa,

Bacopa ('Brahmi') is an Ayurvedic botanical, Lipoic acid, it s all in cortiguard, I believe.

I am not up to speed on supplements but since you sad it is getting worse as fall approaches could it be SAD or Seasonal Affected Disorder? Where people get more depressed as the days get shorter? If so light therapy has been known to help. For general depression or anxiety exercise has been known to help. It seems to work best for me if it is outside or with other people. A yoga class seems ideal to me. Dogs also seem to help depression and you get the side benefit of walking them. If it doesn't get better maybe a psychiatrist though, one who doesn't just write prescriptions?

Thanks for the advice, guys!

Yes, he has SAD. That's why it took us so long to discover the "real" depression, because we were used to him getting "down" in the winter. I used to feed him during the winter months with a supplement with Gelee Royale, Ginseng and Guarana, that seemed to do him good, but stopped one year when he said he didn't want to take the capsules because they didn't work. (That was the depression speaking, but what did I know..?! ) That winter and following spring his depression broke through in full force. Maybe I should start him up on those capsules again, hm?

To help with the SAD, he has a natural light lamp (or whatever the term is) he uses for 30 minutes a day in the winter months. For his birthday last winter I bought him an alarm-clock that wakes up with light instead of sound. Nifty!

He takes a regular multi-vitamin every day.

We have 2 big dogs. And YES, they're very beneficial!

Hi again fellow B's!
Today's blog is about Sardines.  I'd of course be thrilled to learn of your own ways of enjoying our "Beneficial"...
Otherwise: How are y'all doin'?

Sorry Sardines - just not something for this B!
I LOVE food and I like trying new things- but I have tried sardines and mackerel etc and I just can´t stand the fishy taste.
I only like fish that taste very clean and fresh-
even salmon I am very choosy about- I prefer it smoked or marinated- not cooked.

Do you realize that in less than a month this thread will be a year old? We didn't even have to have it made into a sticky! Of course it would be even older if they had let us keep the original thread going. As far as B BTD I've been eating on a goat shoulder cooked in the crockpot for the last couple of days. They opened a saturday farmer's market in my town. I have found fresh free range eggs, okra, greens, sweet potatoes, goat meat, and the goat meat lady said that next week she would have goat cheese if I get there before she is sold out.

Wow - 1 years birthsday

Goat- it is far more yummi than people realise- first time I had it it was smoked and cut in thin slices- I couldn´t believe it was goat.
Sounds good with such a market . I miss than kind of markets- silly as it is - I live in the countryside- and we do not have markets- when I lived in Aarhus ( second largest city in denmark) there was a lovely market  - but here I have to ask the farmer if he will sell me stuff.
I just had a dessert: yummi sheeps yoghurt with raspberries from the garden and my last blueberries and homemade honney - what can one ask for more ?

Guess what?

I started "B & Individuality" on March 5, 2005, so the Thread is, indeed, quite a bit older than 1 year.  Administration decided to start "part II" of it a number of months later.

B's have staying power, folks. And we also need to get away from the Hoi Polloi and have our little place, APART. Which is why there'll always be a place to be B...

Well Ihad to miss out on the farmers market with the fresh goat and goat cheese, free range eggs, greens etc last saturday. I spent all day waiting in vain for Lowe's noservice to deliver my washing machine. Had a bit of a problem yesterday with my hip aching where the femur attaches to the hip but some ibuprofen and yoga seems to have helped that. Still wondering what happened to some of the Bees like U2Dan. Charlie Daniels is putting on a free concert on the Pascagoula beach friday so the comingweekend will be off to a flying start.

Well tomatos are the one advantage of being a nonnie and I'm sticking with them. For now anyway. Nearly time to close my eyes and give out mass produced chocolate to the little monsters. At least it doesn't have corn syrup....I think!

Good blog sante
Well a few days ago I had a pizza with tomato - not bad enjoyed every bit.
BUT yesterday I made some chocolate fudge for my daughter ( we have just got autumnholiday- special treat)
my mum had gotten me some eggwhite/sugar mixture - and I used this and all the rest was at least neutral I thought!§!!!
After the first 2 pieces- I felt stoned- well drunk -like I had had 2 bottles of wine or?- my heart was racing and after that I just tired headache - I was really surpriced- normally I do not have a problem with sugar. I looked again at the eggwhite /sugar thing- took the danish translation of and the american ingredienslist said cornsugar/sirup and eggwhites §!!!! got really angry felt cheated- ONE thing that I never give in at is cornsugar/sirup and oil- they are worse than anything for me- even worse than cornflour and corn on the cob !

Cornsugar and sirup is NORMALLY not much around in Denmark- we produce more than enough sugar beets no need to use cheap sugar like corn ! BOY I am so  

Well I am going to spend the next days enjoying my break- cleaning up the garden- it is still pretty hot and sunny- but the frost will be around any day - read nice books - cook some special food and just relax- I need that.
BUT the fudge well Emma and her friends can eat it- I know it is bad for her as ell- but It does not freak her out like me.l

You are an excellent writer, exj-j, and I mean that quite sincerely.  I read only a few blogs on the internet as I usually don't have patience with them but yours I do read all the way through.

Do you remember when Meg Ryan got sick after eating cheese in "French Kiss?"  I didn't notice whether she was following it through with wine and fruit, though.  Next time I watch that movie I'll have to observe.

Hi B's! I really do miss y'all.  I'm here quite seldom, and I love our little "yard", hoping to catch up with you.

I do hope you're finding the recent series of Blogs for B's helpful.

True Confession: Eating lots of ice cream lately AND I actually resorted -- for the first time in YEARS!-- to popcorn the other day. I was starving, at someone else's house, and there was, I tell you, NOTHING to eat there.  I popped this cr-p, burned it....it was a lose-lose all the way, but at least I wasn't hungry for awhile afterward.

Oh well.  Stay in touch, clanmates....Moi

Oh don't tell me you sold out to Orville! The horror! Just doing laundry and getting ready to go spend the weekend in the French Quarter in New Orleans. One of my coworkers is getting married there. Talk about a brave O, getting married on the thirteenth 2 blocks away from where his exgirlfriend is working at a strip club. Trudie my boxer dog is laying nearby totally unaware that she is getting boarded tomorrow. Had to ambush her and drag her into the shower yesterday.

BTW why isn't this a sticky?

Have any of you clever Bees tried Polyvite, Polyflora and Deflect for B's?

DH (you know - B-nonnie ) has taken them for 3 weeks now, and they really don't seem to agree with him. He's majorly bloated and has stomach aches almost every night.

He's had a rumbly stomach for a while, so I put him on Polyflora to help him with that, but it only seems to make it worse...

His diet is so-so-BTD. That means breakfast and dinner is BTD - the rest isn't...

Just wanted to hear if any of you had noticed anything similar.

(I do well on the O-supps myself! )

I have never tried the deflect - but the rest works fine for me- I did do the low dose due to the cost.

He could be catching a bug... lots are around
or just getting used to them.

However IF he eats some of the really nasty stuff for a b nonnie- he would get problems....
They are much more sensitive than us secs.....

I don´t do NAP vitamin products at the moment- cant afford them

I do multi B complex
magnesium
and halibut liveroil ( natur A og D) at the moment

and I seem to be fine- when summer comes I´ll change the liveroil to ordinary fish oil ( I never get around all that fish ) and will add some clorella.
I eat homemade or Thieses drænet yoghurt every day- and it seem to keep my stomach in fine shape

*slaps forehead* I can't believe I didn't think of this! Of course - I'll give him youghurt in the morning. He's eating his own home made spelt bread with ghee and cheese every morning. (I HAVE told him, that all that starch isn't good for him being nonnie and all...) Time for a change! Thank you SO much, Henriette!

Well - if that doesn't help, I don't know what we'll do!

Henriette, do you drink the B drink in the morning as Dr. D. suggested?  I have used the flax oil for years since I first read about it in Eat Right 4 Your Type.  Recently I substituted olive oil but was not happy with that.  The last two days I have used only the cod liver oil.  So, the drink goes like this:  1 tablespoon oat bran, 1 tablespoon lecithin, 1 tablespoon psyllium and 1 tablespoon cod liver oil in pineapple juice.  What is your formula?  I was wondering whether to also put in fish oil besides the cod liver oil and forget the flax oil altogether.

What do you think?

No I don´t - we can´t get the lecihin here- ( or more correct I have only found soy lecithin- and when I tried that 3 years ago- I felt really bad

NHG Is it dark in your area ???
I only eat codliver oil or more correct halibutliveroil( Can´t get pure codliveroil here) in the wintertime because I don´t get a lot of fatty fish and it is really dark here.
We only get enough vitamin D from sun in june and july !
Ther rest of the year I use regular fishoil ( from salmon9- to get omega 3 - I think as I have said before that I do better with the fish omega 3 than with flax- maybe becourse of my forfathers life at the sea??
I drink homemade pinapplejuice or other juices with my lunch as a dessert when
I´m home - I don´t do well with to high sugary/carb things in the morning.
I use flaxseeds in bread or on salads- but never the oil- I find it to go stale too fast - it smell like my paint for my windows - with linseedoil

Poly I think he could do worse !!

I rotate with my yoghurt and fruits-
In summertime I might have fruit and cheese instead
Sometimes eggs as well.
In winter I do have oats in the morning if it is really cold or eggs and sausages.
Then I have yoghurt as part of another meal.

Henriette, thanks for the help.  I believe I will forget about the flax oil from now on and I'll try the salmon oil.  No, it's not that dark here in the winter but there are a lot of overcast days.  However, the suggested levels of vit. D have risen for bone health so I'm not too worried about using cod liver oil year round, now.  I used to be an outdoor person but have changed and find myself indoors more than I should be.  In the cardiology book, Dr. D'Adamo suggests using olive oil instead of flax and that's why I tried that.  I wasn't too keen on that, though.  I think I tried it for one whole week.

Just thought that iwould poste this for my B firends - another reason for getting organic dairy / or keeping a cow in the garden

copied from something I wrote in  another thread

Scientist have found out that if they let organic cows eat grass COMBINED with white clover and alfalfa they raise the omega 3 ammount in organic dairy with 100 % - and the milk taste much more creamy.....

They advice that more fields will be sown with a combo of theese herbs and grass
and since organic cows here have to be on grass from april- november( compaired to regular cows that often never sees the sun)- it will mean just another reasons for the B´s ( and abs ) to choose organic milk....

Hello Heinriette and all the other B's and wannaB's. It is looking like spring is getting closer. My tomato seedlings are allready sprouted and growing on the window ledge. Five weeks or so before time to transplant them outside.

I haven't seen many cows but a field near my parent's house has goats and all the females have little twin goats born in the last week. Cheese, yogurt, and stew on the hoof!

Lucky you GCG
Here it will be late May before my peppers and tomatoes( for Emma ) will come out.
I have just sown eggplants and peppers in door. Will do some flowers as well.

Winter has finally hit us this weekend..... but they say the snow will turn into sleet/ rain during the day.

By mistake I pulled up an asparagus plant and it had 3 cm long sprouts ( asparagus)
- so if the lukewarm vinter contine I´ll get early aspargus.

Baby goats are just so cute ! as all animal children

Just reviving our little world here, B's, especially for the benefit of Henriette_Bsec who says she's been feeling lonely for B company.

I just had a thought, too, about B and solitude. Elsewhere on the Forum Tomatilla was saying that AB loves solitude, and I am a fool for it! Just wondering where my fellow B's weigh in on this.

Sure I love solitude- that is why I´m not married
It seem to me that most B´s at least the ones around me are independent types that like spending time on their own-AND getting back to the clan
I just felt the odd B- among all the b nonnies.

Yes I need about one day of solitude a week to wind down after a workweek. Unfortunately lately I have been busy with family commitments most week ends. Nothing planned for this weekend except yard work and maybe painting my garage(detached). Tie up the tomatos, retrain the climbbing squash etc. Yoga of course.

Yep, I need downtime as well.  I call those days of solitude my mental health days.  They fortify me and help keep me emotionally strong.

NHG I had all forgotten about that you are a B sec as well. so I´m not the weird one in the B camp
There were suddenly so many B nonnies around and I love your guys ,,,, but you alwys just seem a bit more restricted than I

I´m so stressed at the moment that tonight I´m going to spend on the couch with a beer and some nice books and NOT feel guilty about the stuff I ought to do- including calling friends...

Work in the garden is such a great B friend... I need to put that into my program the next horrible 5 weeks-
I´ve got 4 exams- 1 written 24 hour exam and 3 spoken ( ? ) exams and I am already tired...
At the moment I feel my life is  so controlled/ planned / restricted - not my kind of life .

We would call them oral exams in the USA. A 24 hour exam? I thought it was rough when I had 8 hour exams on everything I had learned in university, of course I have had 3 of them. 3x8 eq 24. I can't find a complient beer but a little Merlot sounds nice.

Henriette, if I had to look forward to that kind of stress with school I would be chilling out this evening, too!!!!  I wish I could join you with my beer.  I'm baking a sweet potato so I could share that with you, too.  

P.S.  I guess I'm weird, too.    Heh, heh.

Three cheers for B secretors (hic).

OK: Here's a question for B's:

Which supplements, recommended by Peter, do any/most of you take, occasionally/daily/usually...?

It would have been great it was a nice organic honey beer- very tasty
Went to bed and slept 10 hours....

Ok Oral exams ....
I´ve got 1 oral exam lasting 30 minutes about John Dewey´s theory: learning by doing
1 oral 45 minutes defending my final paper in Geography ; The Caucasus Area - how and why do we teach in this subject in junior high....
1 oral 45 minutes in Danish; Which books do we want grade 4-6 to read and why ?- What roll do I play as a danish teacher in guiding the kids?

My 24 hour exam is : written Danish.
We are given a lot of material on a cd- it could be written, pictures, movies, children reading alloud etc and we have NO idea what the questions will be..
We can prepaire by looking if we can figure out the subject and it can really be anything ; how to teach kids with another background than danish to read, how to teach kid writing skills, how to teach kids littature or ???
Next morning we get to college and are given 3 question and 6 hours to write apox 10 pages....

Last year the failore % was 60 % - I have never failed anything but I am a tad worried. Normally I work best IF I can take a break and do something else- like weeding... that is not possible....
So this B´s creative mind has to be at it´s best monday /tuesday...

Supplements:
Magnesium I take all year round.
I normally don´t do a lot of vitamins - since my deit seem quite well.

However last year I did attentia and cortiguard when I was under a lot of pressure- I somehow missed getting some this year.. so I´ll survive without.

I take ( not particulately recommended  by Peter):
Halibutliver oil during winter- we get very little sun here and most of us Danes are deficient in vitamin D - no food is supplemnted here so....
During summer I take fish oil ( from salmon) it helps my stiff joints and I don´t get enough fish so.....

After sickness I do vitamins and minerals from nap - but they are horrible expensive here in Europe so......

Ooooh, that's a honey of an exam!!!!  And that honey beer sounded good, too.  

As for exj_j's question, the only NAP products I take regularly are the probiotics and Taraxacum.  I take many other vitamins that I buy from iherb.com.  As for magnesium, I take twice a day and I can't do without that!

I didn't mean it had to be NAP.  ANY supplements at all. There are just so many protocols when you have all the books, as I do. It's interesting to find out what people are actually using and benefitting from.

I use the fenugreek because I have a genetic tendency to high triglycerides and low LDL cholesterol. It was in one of the protocols.

I just like cooking and when I saw a recipee to use elderberry sirup to cook pears in I thought I could twist it...
Anyway if you had to pay the european prices for NAP products you would try to find other sources as well.....

Yes, I can see your point there.  I've never made a syrup of any kind.  My aim in cooking always was to cook up nutritious meals, eat, wash up and get out of the kitchen.    When my family was growing up, though, I used to love making desserts.  The desserts had to be home made and thoroughly delicious.  Whenever we went to a church supper I always took along a delicious cake as an offering.  My two best things to do were 1)make good desserts and 2)darn socks really well.  Now, I don't do either!!!!!   Who darns socks anymore?  And, my husband and I watch our diets.  And, then, of course, along came the BTD!

Well maybe we should return doing things like that...
I have noticed mor and more women here in Denamrk starts taking up things like cooking gardeing sewing etc... They don´t do it all the time - but maybe cook speciel dinner in the weekend or knit during winter evenings...
IT is sad that our life has become so rushed that there is no time for this.
Desserts I´m there too and I´m still are
I find it easier to live BTD IF I have a good cake or dessert in the weekend I don´t crave sweets during the week....
I´m pretty thankful being a B that way. However my O is allowed cream in the weekends.....

I hope you do well on your exam, Henriette.  I think that's brilliant for you to look forward to dessert on the weekend.  I can see where that would make it easier for you to follow BTD all week.  We all need some kinds of rewards in life.

I used to crochet but I think it's time to learn how to knit.  I'm glad you brought that thought up.
