A co-worker of my husband's has a family blueberry farm. We just got 10 lbs of blueberries for $20. I'm in the process of freezing blueberries right now.

Good deal, Nikki! I'd sure love to know someone with a blueberry farm...!


**********
It's hot and a little on the humid side (for here) today. Fixing to go into the kitchen and prep fresh veggies to have easily available to munch on. I'd rather take a nap. :-)

I doubt you have the energy to deal with reporting him, but could your husband? That is totally unacceptable behaviour from a doctor. He is endangering you. He is a danger to other patients as well. Does he think the doctors at the OR are incapable of diagnosing a stroke correctly?

How old is this guy? Is it possible that he doesn't believe there is such a thing as a TIA? I know that doctors refused to believe my mother when she told them she was having "mini-strokes", back in the 70s. They claimed there was no such thing. But, we know better now.
He is fairly young. My GP is on it. She hasn't seen me yet but got the reports, set up a few tests and I go in after she gets the results. She talked to TB while I was sleeping about the stroke clinic Dr. because his report was very "negative". TB explained from our side and she is going to look into it and if needed will refer me to a totally different clinic so I don't have to go back there. I have definitely had TIA's and she said that the plaque on the carotid artery IS worrisome.

It is definitely a perk. Quite a few of his co-workers live out in the county (a local colloquialism for living in the country outside of the city), so we get fresh eggs every week, and then blueberries and apples every season.

Nice, Nickee. I'm out in the boonies and we enjoy many perks of fresh farm produce and eggs, too. I love it! Still trying to use up the 4 dozen fresh eggs I bought last month from happy free range chickens.

Oh, and I got the spelling of your name right this time.

Oh, I can't wait to live in the boonies! I'm original from the boonies, and so is my husband, but until I'm done school, we're staying in the city. And THEN we're moving to a place with a few acres. The plan is to have chickens, goats, bees and a greenhouse.

Way to hot to eat. Obviously my Nordic genes are not happy. Third day running where heat advisories issued.

Besides trying to stay cool, I am waiting to hear my dad's bone scan results. He was diagnosed with cancer last week.

Oh no! (((Hugs))) I hope it's something that can be easily cured.

My Nordic genes are not making me happy either with this weather. It doesn't help that they are saying that "older adults" should be careful. I'm staying in the air conditioned house most of the time. I may do some late grocery shopping, but it's still 28 (82F) and feels like 36C (97F) here at nearly 21h00 (9PM).

Thanks. TL. Hoping for the best.

I imagine Montreal has had the "feels like 40 with the humidex" days we've been having...I promised not to complain about the heat after the winter with the -30 w/ windchill days in Jan and Feb. I didn't know this part of Canada had such extreme temp variations. I might have pushed harder for the DH to move to MN.

As a friend put it, "At least you don't have to shovel humidity."
