Well jc you are not alone. I too have lost a child. Only mine was a mother of five. And my son The Pirate lost his first born when he was nine hours old. There is no pain like that of losing a child. No matter what the age.

The folks in here at DC are very caring. They notice when you are among the missing for a spell. If you are ever feeling down, head over to Today's Funny. Start on page one and I guarantee and promise your spirits will be lifted up immediately. We also have one who raises chickens. Find the Chicken Chronicles. Another absolute delight to read. And they too will have you on the floor holding your side from laughter.

It is in every animal and has a definite purpose.

On pork and beef ribs, it is plainly evident, and is called silverskin. In a chicken, it is the same tissue, but isn't as well known by most home cooks. It is broken down by slow, moist cooking techniques, where it is converted mostly into gelatine. It gives broths a richer mouth feel. When fried, or roasted, it can be very tough and chewy.

It won't hurt you. It's just not any fun to chew on, and chew on, and chew on. It also carries virtually no flavor.

Constance is correct.

The 7yr old post comments, so there's a deadline on the topics...lovely. To the comments that the chicken can't move I mean really that's beyond immature. Which every single reply is immature. It's my choice to eat what I want. I commented on this to tell that it used to not be there and that it makes me sick too. For all the immature rediculous comments it's worse for the site administrator. All your rules and you make a comment. I said nothing that should've been replied to in this manner and this disrespect.
No reason to be offended. We like to have fun here.

We all take a ribbing from time to time. It wouldn't be unusual for someone to be called a chicken. I haven't been called a porker yet but nobody here has actually seen me eat. Don't be surprised or offended if someone here eggs you on.

By the way nice to meat you.

Welcome

Those feathers are not to be touched! They are my stash for tying fishing flies! It's my fly-fishing bonnet. I'm a peace lover, ya know. And I only remove feathers from sustainable birds, like chickens, and ducks, and geese, and grouse, and deer, uh, oh, I mean beaver. Uh, dang, I deep gettin' that mixed up. I must have drank some of that joisy water. There's enough mercury in there to make a hatter mad.

@Hoot...Thankyou, I'm so sorry about your child...stuff like that really hurts. before I can remember hearing of people who lost children and I would think God I know that has to be very hard and it has to hurt really bad but I never knew just how much it did until it happened to me. For the first month and a half in the hospital my husband said I would set staring at the walls I wouldn't watch TV nor did I wanna speak to anyone. I only remember bits and pieces. Thanks for welcoming me, you guys are great. I think I'm gonna like this site after all
@kylie1969 thank you
@Addie wow my heart goes out to you losing a child that you have lots of memories that breaks my heart for you, as bad as mine was I can only imagine how you've pulled through it. You have to be a very strong lady. Then also a g-child...God love you. Also thanks for all the info I look forward to figuring everything out.
@jharris ...wow we have something in common and that's the porker...I LOVE FOOD!!!! Thanks

Right now I am facing the possibility of losing my first born. She has been diagnosed with brain cancer. She is doing fine right now, but we won't know her prognosis until October at the earliest. The folks here at DC have been a pillar of strength for me. When I first got the news I was a wreck. But with some medication and support from friends I am now able to do whatever it takes to help my daughter. You will notice that all my posts have an angel at the end. It is for my daughter. Everyone needs an angel to watch over them. The folks here are very generous with their angels. And for that I am so ever grateful.

I have never lost a child, and so can not say that I know how hard it is. But I have children and grandchildren who mean more to me than anything else in the world. I have seen a few close calls, where but for a favorable instant of time, I could have lost one of my children. But Heaven smiled down on me, an spared me that pain.

This is not a religious site and so I'll respect that, though I have strong beliefs. Let's just say that I believe in life after death, and that families are forever, not just in mortality. You will see them again, all of you.

DC is full of good people, even if we get a little goofy sometimes, right BT?

And just so's ya knows, BT and I are brothers in spirit. We share the same birthdate, and many personality traits, and have a huge amount of respect for each other (shhhh. Don"t tell him that.) He was refering to a rather famous pancake recipe of mine, and telling me not to be messing with it.

And now I can't even remember the initial topic of this thread. But I do remember one thing, that I'm looking forward to sharing all things DC with you.

your question has been answered, along with an entire community's input. i hope you can unclench and see that. from a larger perspective.
btw, i'm curious about a subjext that you brought up in ypur distemper

i've seen both positive and negative responses from the powers that be wherein recalling old posts was frowned upon and supported.

what say you, emporers of dc?
It goes to show that old posts never die, they don't even fade away. I suppose if I did a search for celiac, something from way back when would show up.

What I don't understand is why touching that tendon makes some feel sick. You will handle livers, the stomach and gizzards of the chicken, but a clean tendon? You are even willing to stick your hand up the backside of the chicken, so why not touch the tendon? You go so far as to clean out the blood clots inbetween the rib cage of the inside. I would hate to see someone field dress an animal that has been shot during hunting season. Maybe it is just me. I have a rather strong stomach for such things. I would love to watch open heart surgery. The more blood and gore, the happier I am.

BTW having the butcher take out those tendons just adds to the cost. The more labor, the higher the cost. The only time I have ever seen them removed is when the tenders are sold separate. Then they are removed for esthetics only. If you notice they usually cost more per pound than the breasts that they came off of.
