I'm getting ready to go with TB to the hospital to get all of his test results from his bout a couple of weeks ago with the shakes. We are pretty sure it is going to come down to his thyroid, or blood sugar, but they did heart and stroke tests as well.

On the yogurt front, I need it for my candida but can't have it for my dairy allergy - so, I have come to love plain goat yogurt which I eat plain or turn into tzatziki. What I don't like is the price! $7.00 for a 500 ml (2 cup) tub and I have to have it twice a day!

I am sorry, but I can't get past sour. It is the one taste sense that sends me off to rinse my mouth out as fast as I can. Not even the Greek yogurt. My DIL comes from Albania and grew up on Greek yogurt. I keep hearing how so much different it is from other yogurt. So When he opened a small cup for my grandson, I asked her for just a small taste on the tip of the spoon. Nope. I worked it back to my taste buds and couldn't get to the faucet fast enough.

There are only two foods that I am willing to eat a little of. A cucumber, dill and onion dip with sour cream and an onion dip with sour cream. After just a couple of dips, I prefer to eat just the chips. I do not like sour cream on my baked potato.

I wish I could eat yogurt. It would have been the best thing for my stomach upset yesterday. And many other times. All my kids love it. Most mothers usually don't cook or offer foods to their kids that they don't like. But yogurt was always on my grocery list for a snack for the kids.

Whatever.

Volvos are great in winter snow.

I just got home from walking to the dep (convenience store). It's only a block away. I'm glad I tucked my pants into my boots. The snow was almost up to my knees. It was very heavy walking, just getting to the street. It's the kind of weather when Canadians walk in the street, 'cause you can't find the sidewalk. I am pooped.

I am glad I didn't take the car. There were cars getting stuck all over the place. The parking lot of the dep hadn't been plowed yet. I saw the snow plow doing my street on the way home.

Yesterday they predicted 15-25 cm (6"-10"). There was already more than that when I woke up. Now they are predicting 25-50 cm. It's still coming down. I am not going back out in that unless there is an emergency.

I thought Canadians walked in the street so they could play hockey with a clod of ice, using the curbs as goals?

I saw a commercial yesterday (Canadian) on the World Junior Hockey Championships with a young guy in a Canadian hockey jersey, stick and hockey bag and all he said was "You take away hockey you might as well just shut Canada down for the winter".

Hey, why doesn't anyone remember that Lacrosse is our official national sport and Basketball was invented by a Canadian?

I have always thought of hockey as Canadian. When the Bruins play any team from Canada, we know that our team has to play a lot harder than when they are playing an American team. Canadians have been playing hockey since childhood. Like four years and up. Our kids don't get a real start until they are in high school.

Hockey IS Canada for sure....but I don't think it is enough to shut down the Country

Yeah, I guess Canadians do that too, but today you can't find the curb.
