Thank you Amy, Auntie needs lots of prayers. She has been so healthy and all of a sudden this thing has got her. She gets horrible headaches, dizzyness, swollen feeling in her ear, neck and even her back. It has incapacitated her. She likes to be out painting her house, doing yard work, walking her new doggie (a Tibetian Terrier she got this spring), and tending to her 9 grandkids. But now she is miserable and has been to her primary doc for months with no results. The ENT is examining her CAT scan and MRI, but she has to wait until July 10 to see him again. Seems like a long wait while a person is not able to lead a normal life. Thanks everyone for your prayers, keep them coming! The Niece, TheConservativeParty

Happy FRYday, everyone!

FRIED ONION STRIPS

Ingredients

Vegetable oil, for frying
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 egg
1 teaspoon hot sauce
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 Vidalia onions, sliced into 1/2-inch thick strips

Directions

Place oil in a deep skillet until it comes about 1-inch up the side of the pan. Heat oil to 360 degrees F.

Mix buttermilk, egg, and hot sauce in a medium bowl. Mix flour, cayenne, 1 teaspoon salt, and pepper in a bag. Pat onion slices dry and dip in the buttermilk mixture to coat. Transfer slices to bag and toss to coat. Deep-fry onions in batches until golden, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain, sprinkle immediately with salt, and serve.

(This is really good served with blue cheese or ranch dressing.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~
For those of you who shy away from FRY'd food,
Here's a steamed Maui onion!

I agree ... FReepers are the very BEST!

Are you attending a Tea Party this weekend?
We are going to the one in Tulare tomorrow.
I'm also planning to be in DC in September.
Will you be able to attend that Tea Party and our Convention?
I'm hoping to meet lots of new FReepers there.

Have a Super Friday and a Fun, Safe Weedend.

Happy FRYday, Yorkie.
I'll skip the onions today. :)
I have been eating fast food every evening this week.
After swimming, Marissa is hungry and we are 45 minutes from home,
so it has been: Tuesday ... McDonalds; Wednesday ... Burger King and
Thursday .... A & W Root Beer.
If the weather cooperates, we may try a picnic again tonight.
She loves to go to Freedom Park for picnics.
They have an area where water shoots up from several diffent underground sprinklers.
There are always kids there and she enjoys playing there for another hour.
Now you know why I don't get back in the evenings. :)

Hope you are enjoying the July 4th weekend.
Have a FUNday.

all that rain sounds miserable.

Amy you found the perfect description.

We broke a rain record and we broke the all time record for least sun. I don't remember any sun in June, but they said we got 11%. I sincerely believe that 11% was at night.

It's sad. Because of no light we might as well be having 4PM winter sunsets.

Weathermen have started to forecast sun toward the end of their 7-day forecasts in attempts to keep spirits up, but sun never comes.

Some day we are bound to see sun here and we won't know what to do.

Hugs

To: Kitty Mittens; TheConservativeParty

Thank you for the ping, Kitty Mittens, and the opportunity to pray for TheConservativeParty’s Aunt Mickey.

I was just reading a prayer ping from knittnmom about her daughter and our fellow FReeper, Ellendra, who has just been diagnosed with tin poisoning:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2262183/posts

She was having dizziness as well.

I didn’t know anything about it and went online to read a bit about it.

When I saw that TheConservativeParty’s aunt loves to paint her house and work outside, I wondered if this could also be a part of her problem, or something similar anyway.

Seems tin is used in paints and pesticides, etc..

Of course, it may have nothing to do with his aunt’s problem, but since they don’t know what it is perhaps it wouldn’t hurt to check.

I will certainly pray for TheConservativeParty’s Aunt Mickey. God bless them to find the cause of her health problems and treat them successfully, and may she successfully recover her good health.

TO ALL AT AMY’S PLACE

NEWS ON MY AUNT MICKEY******Your prayers are answered******

Just got off the phone with Auntie. She had such bad symptoms around 3am Thursday, she had her son take her to the ER again.

This time the new set of eyes I was praying for, the ER doctor, knew what the problem is!!!

He says there is a large nerve up the right side of the human head, and that nerve is inflamed in my Auntie’s neck. That would explain the neck and back pain, and even the dizzyness.

He gave her those nasty nerve blocking shots (I had those for toe surgery and it was excruciating) to calm down that nerve. He has her on vicadin to ease the pain and also to reduce swelling while the nerve heals.

Turns out it was not an inner ear problem at all which explains why the primary doc was getting nowhere fast with that line of reasoning.

She will see the primary doc on Monday, which is the procedure in her insurance situation. She can be off the allergy meds that only made her feel worse, and be only on the vicadin, of which she is taking only half the dose to prevent being loopy.

Auntie sounded very relieved on the phone! I can tell she is sure that ER doc found the problem. And it is not a complicated problem either, just a nerve gone wild. Could be from all the work she likes to do, since her husband has been with The Lord for nearly 7 years now. Auntie is like me and does things for herself, and evidently lifted too much heavy stufff and hurt that nerve.

She is staying with her son until her Monday appt. I will call her that night and check on her.

A millions thanks to everyone at Amy’s Place for your prayers!!! HUGS to ALL!!!

Because Obama is failin’
There could be a chance for Palin,
As long as people aren’t bailin’
Meltwater from out of their home.

She might go tripping to Russia,
She might, but please don’t rush her,
Another insult might crush her,
And send her packing for Nome.

Thank you all for visiting.
Thank you for your graphics, prayers, and friendly chitchat.

I'll try to get back sometime this evening.

We need to leave here not later than 6:30.
May have my coffee on the go.

Have a fun/safe weekend.

INDEPENDENCE DAY 2009





CONCORD HYMN



By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April's breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard round the world.

The foe long since in silence slept;
Alike the conqueror silent sleeps;
And Time the ruined bridge has swept,
Down the dark stream which seaward creeps.

On this green bank, by this soft stream,
We set to-day a votive stone;
That memory may their deed redeem,
When, like our sires, our sons are gone.

Spirit, that made those heroes dare,
To die, and leave their children free,
Bid Time and Nature gently spare,
The shaft we raise to them and thee.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thank you for the prayers! I got good news today. My Auntie phoned and at first it sounded bad, as she told me she had to get to the ER at 6am Thursday. Then she went on to tell me that the ER doctor probably figured out what the cause of her problem is. It was not allergy realated at all! She has a badly inflamed major nerve on the right side of her neck. The ER doc gave her several nerve blocker shots and a prescription for vicadin until the nerve heals. Auntie was sounding so much better than a few days ago when no one had figured out the real problem yet. It might take a long time for that nerve to get back to normal, but at least we think the cause of the problems has been found, Praise The Lord!!!

REST IN PEACE, FALLEN BROTHER!





Sgt. Terry Jay Lynch, USA, KIA 29JUN2009

I have fought a good fight,
I have finished my course,
I have kept the faith.
2 Timothy 4:7 (KJV)


God Of Our Fathers



Rest in Peace, fallen brother, rest in peace!
We who remain hold you in high honor.
Rest, fallen brother, in this sacred precinct;
We who remain keep this place sacred.
Rest, fallen brother, among these, your comrades;
We who remain keep the watch.
Rest, fallen brother, among these who answered the Nation’s call;
We who remain press the fight forward in your name.
Rest, fallen brother, lay down thy burden;
We who remain have taken up the torch.
Rest in Peace, fallen brother, rest in eternal peace!
