Yes---we all found each other, didn't we?

ABNW, if I had 4 1/2 more people bet 10 bucks each also, it would pay for his saliva test!

I've been a real jerk lately (I'm so tired).  My  husband could say some things about me too.

We were up in Greenville a few weeks ago (actually, that's where I'm from, and my entire family still lives there) at BJ.  My  husband was being interviewed for the homeschool curriculum videos.  You might just see his face one day (if you happen to order that one).

Quoted from RedLilac
Caz:  You and your hubbie must be weak secretors because you each had to have a non-secreting gene to give to your daughter.  You have to have 2 non-secreting genes to be a non-secretor.




Okay, so if my daughter is a nonnie, which we assume she is because she's done much better on the AB nonnie diet, then it means my husband is also?  Wow!  Would that mean that all our children are, or would they necessarily inherit nonniness?

Now what's this about weak secretors?  I remember reading something about it before, but in light of the other thread about whether or not your your secretor status can change over the course of your life....Makes me wonder if you secrete more or less during your lifetime and the status would appear to change based on the amount you secrete.

Also, since I'm a nonnie, that means both my parents are?  They loosely follow the diet, but they both follow the secretor diets (father A, mother O) because they didn't want to put out the money for the test.  Now we know, I guess, they've been following the wrong diets.  And does that mean all my siblings are nonnies just because we know I am?  (Boy, that sure would explain some things.)

Yes... I'm a secretor with a nonnie child. So being a nonnie means, in the least, that both of your parents possess the nonnie gene. They could also be nonnies as well... no way to really tell unless they are tested. However, if both parents are nonnies, they can only produce nonnie offspring.

Regarding genes that we possess but don't express... I think the jury is still out on how those non-expressed genes influence our physiology.

RedLilac, say hi to the EAA for me when you drive by.  If you're going by on the freeway.  Have fun.  Yes it's pretty.  It was 80 on my Mom's back porch in the afternoon today.  It's a little cooler where I live though because of the lake.



I waved did you see me?

OK Im confused; you work in Oshkosh and live near Racine.  How far of a drive is that for you?  I was at OSH new ATCT, it just towers over the old one.  Next time give me some hints on where to eat.

OK I just re-read the post DUH Im dense.  I waved from the highway, not EAA.

Anyway, I saw a buffalo herd on the drive home.  In Fargo, ND I saw a herd and stopped and brought some meat home with me.  I saw a banner that it was open but I couldnt figure out where.  No I dont recall which town I was passing through in WI.

GOTCHA!!!!  It's been a while.  I thought I should rent it because I think my kids would get a kick out of it.  I think it was made and we saw it before they were born.

RedLilac, sorry to confuse you.  I do that sometimes.  What freeway did you take up from Illinois into Wisconsin?  I'm assuming 94, but I don't want to assume anything.

I took 94 and 41.  It was 57 miles each on both of those with lesser amounts on other roads.  I could have seen the buffalo on either of those.  For those people reading this post who do not live in Northern Illinois or Wisconsin, EAA stands for Experimental Aircraft Association which is very big in Oshkosh.

If you went up 94 you went by pretty close to where I live in northern Racine County.  I figured as much.  Yeah, the EAA is a cool place.  Did you stop at the Osh Kosh B'Gosh factory outlet store?????  hehehehehhehehehe.

I just hung around the airport and then my hotel.  The hotel had free drinks for 2 hours, and then I stumbled to the Subway which was within walking distance to get a roast beef salad.  Afterward I soaked in the hot tub and then watched the boob tube.  One advantage to over staying the Managers Special (Happy 2 hours), is that I open up and talk to strangers.  I was on a BTD kick that night.  I also told horror stories about popcorn while the other patrons were gobbling up the free stuff.  I stayed away from the popcorn.  I also informed anybody ordering a diet soda either alone or mixed with alcohol about the danger of artificial sweeteners.  I bet they were so glad I was only staying 1 night!

Oh, when I drink I revert to the BTD where non-secretors can have alcohol.

RL, that sounded like fun!  You never know who you might influence. Keep talking. I still try to weave it in discussions.
Hope your knee is better. Are there any slow exercises you can do when it isn't in pain?
I started getting some e-newsletter from a Dr. Bill who was a good knee surgeon, but can't practice now due to a bad injury, so he wrote a book on knee exercises that can strengthen the knee & hopefully prevent surgery.  I'm not good at remembering web sites, but if you are interested, I can let you know so you can see what he sells. I only get slight pain in one knee, but who knows if I will spend money on the book eventually. You know I finally ordered my secretor test New Year's Eve!(but haven't taken the test due to this coughing problem & now this touch of the flu or something.)So I might get this book too in 5 years!
Cheers!

Thanks Mrs T, but I already know what exercises Im suppose to do.  I went to the Chiropractic College and they gave me some plus my Yoga-lattes instructor is a physical therapist by day and has made some suggestions on what to do.  What I need is to be able to grow the cartilage back, I think.

I could finally walk short distances this weekend.  I was so glad.  Ive been doing upper body exercises at the gym to help stave the fat off.  I do some light leg exercises where I dont put pressure on the knee. As long as I am progressively getting better from the twisted knee, Im happy.  I dont think Ill be going back to my old exercise routine.  I need to give my knee time to heal.  It is weak in the 1st place because of that old skydiving accident.  Oh well, we humans are good at adapting.
