    Toot, toot, toot, toot ... lol

    Nobody ever answered me as to whether Beano works well or not, have you ever tried it Tweety?
    I have tried it. Not for beans though. I went through a phase of eating a lot of raw veggies. I just eliminated the culprits which were raw zucchini and cauliflower. Fortunately for me beans don't bother my digestive system in that way. Toot!

    You guys are crackin me up.....ty.....needed that.
    Two more shifts after this one...yippeee
    DH is interviewing for a job at the hospital I will be working at in the morning.
    I am so looking forward to the change.... no more traveling for work, staying home with dh, hoping it will be easier to stay focused on the self-improvements I am trying out.
    Catch up with ya'll work right now

    er, good luck to dh.

    On a side note. Beans are a superfood, they are high in immune boosting antioxidants, good protein (when combined with a grain they are complete protein), low fat, high in soluable fiber (the kind that lowers bad cholesterol and raises good).

    tweety, you are too funny! :d started my day with a smile.

    i just have to share this. i signed up for the ww newsletter. it's totally free and the recipes for this week are just so fabulous, i have to share a little, because it's all about grilling. you can sign up at

    what's cooking: grilling

    • article by: lisa chernick

    let the grilling begin! in honor of memorial day, the unofficial start of summer, we've picked our best beef, chicken and fish recipes for the grill, as well as irresistible sides and salads to pair them with. it might not be beach weather yet, but now is a fine time to start enjoying this mouthwatering, healthy, quintessentially summer style of cooking.


    yes, perfectly grilled steak is one of summer's surest pleasures. add delicious accompaniments and you have the start of a great menu.
    grilled beef fajitas
    grilled beef with wasabi slaw
    grilled flank steak with mango chutney
    flank steak with triple-grilled onions


    this versatile protein is at its best grilled and dressed up any way you like.
    grilled chicken skewers with satay sauce
    grilled chicken with parsley-caper sauce
    grilled tandoori chicken and red onion skewers with couscous
    tequila-jalapeo chicken


    use a grill basket to keep fish and seafood from falling apart or falling into the fire.
    grilled halibut with pineapple
    grilled shrimp salad
    grilled swordfish with seasoned asparagus
    grilled tuna with mustard-dill sauce
    orange-grilled scallops with mint and tomatoes
    salads & sides

    adding the smokiness of the grill to your favorite vegetables, beans and grains means super-flavorful accompaniments.
    grilled leek and bean salad
    grilled mexican corn salad with mango and jicama
    grilled portobellos with fresh corn salsa
    grilled vegetable pasta salad

    No beans here, but can I throw in a toot anyway? TOOT I hate to be left out of the fun, LOL.

    Hikers home, sunburned and still wishing she were in a tent, LOL. We went hiking with the kids . . . not nearly as ummm, efficient as hiking without them , but it's nice to stop and look at all of the bugs, lizards, etc, and just spend time playing. They spent hours trying to catch rabbits and just enjoying getting dirty. They're amazingly good at that last part, LOL.

    It was soooo good to get away. We couldn't at all last summer because I had a full load of classes and both DH and I were working full-time.

    i am feeling a bit blue today, not sure what's up with that. i think i am just jealous that my brother is going to be moving to lasvegas and i am stuck out here. don't get me wrong, i love the prairie, but every once in a while i long for a taste of that youth where it is so easy to just pick up and move wherever and whenever you want. the family kinda puts a damper on that for me, lol! drat! oh well. i've been good today, so that's a plus.
    {{{{{{{sarah}}}}}}} i understand how you feel about not being able to just pick up and go where you want. i like the maturity of where i am right now, but i do miss having the world open in front of me, too.

    Quote from ertravelrn
    well.......i made my decision and will be working close to home. i emailed the hospital and explained that the pay was almost enough. they called me back with an increase in starting i took it.
    ty everyone for your thoughts on this
    i'm so happy for you--and to have your dh working with you, too. is he a nurse? it'll be nice to spend time together, eh?

    Quote from zoeboboey
    thanks tweety, the h/a is better but the cough is more frequent! grrr... and i am dang tired from waking up to cough and pee (yes the two go together lol)

    they do after a certain age, yes?

    hope you enjoy your camping, we did it a lot when i was a kid! (i agree on the disposable clothing, ditto on blankets and pillows and such!)

    had a blast it would be so nice just to throw all our gear in the recycle and be done with it. you know, maybe they could do it like at hospitals--just check out what you need at the ranger station and drop it off when you leave . . .

    as to moving - first chance you get, go to visit him! it might not be all it's cracked up to be!
    las vegas drives me nuts. i'm a bit overwhelmed by all the noise, lights, color, and cigarette smoke--i forget there are states without smoking policies, lol.

    Quote from bluehair
    hiker - i think you are onto something there! multiple uses, not just camping. what you need is someone to help with product development - you could get rich!
    are you offering to help with development? :d

    Hiker, thanks for the birthday wishes. I had a great cyberparty. The hike with the kids sounds fun.

    Sarah, hope you're feeling better today.

    Angie, thanks for those links. It might give me some ideas.
