It doesn’t feel good, either. I feel almost as bad as I did when I was working.

I need to go get some wine, but I just don’t feel up to it. That will help with the nausea, and probably help me sleep as well, though I hate to resort to that. *sigh*

I shoulda been a cuppla other guys....

I’m sorry you’re feeling poorly. Have you tried peppermint for the nausea? There was a lady in my prayer group in Tulsa who had something-myalgia, and oil of peppermint helped her with nausea.

Unfortunately, one can’t use it during pregnancy ... best you can do it mint tea :-).

Ah, the catz are schooling about - I see their bowl is empty.

I don’t care for mint, but I would try the tea if the mint flavor is not too strong. When I feel up to going to the store, I’ll look for some. Thanks!

Iirc, you can put the mint oil behind your ears, and it’s absorbed into the skin. Or you can just inhale it!

Pleased to help! You might find it at Wal-mart in the vitamins and supplements section. I get Tea-tree oil at Wal-mart. Vlad’s almost two, and no ear infections!

The Wal-Mart I go to isn’t a Super Store, so it’s fairly limited in what it has. Since I have to go to the organic store, anyway, I’ll look there, first.

But thanks again!

Well, I'm not quite sure how you do that, but it sounds like a nifty trick.

I'll bet it will save you lots of time and money on air flights, too.

Yah, it would be nice but with my luck part of me would get lost going through the network routers. And there's an operation involved called "fragmentation" that could get dicey.

I take it as a good sign. I for one am glad that you're you, because if you weren't you I wouldn't know to whom it was I'm talking. Or something like that.

But (seriously, and I know that's frowned on in the UT) I pray you'll be feeling better... several minutes ago. Or something like that.

Good news out of Canada, eh?

Kyoto accord, RIP

There are excellent reasons to quickly reduce our reliance on fossil fuels outside of Kyoto: We're running out of them; burning them pollutes our environment; and the less we have to rely on the unstable Mideast for oil, the better it will be for global security.

But we can no longer pretend Kyoto's the way to get there or we'll end up where we are now -- running in circles.

Yikes! I Googled "sionnsar" and found this:

Sionnsar Sìthe MhicCruimein
Tha an sgeulachd seo air a h-ath-sgrìobhadh bhon sgeulachd a chaidh fhoillseachadh ann an Leabhraichean-leughaidh Blackie, leis a' Chomunn Ghaidhealach.

Cha chualas riamh air thalamh sionnsar bu bhrèagha ceòl na an sionnsar airgid a fhuair MacCruimein bhon bhean-shìthe. An uair a bha esan a' pìobaireachd na aonar, ann an lagan uaine ris an canar gus an là an-diugh, 'Slochd nam Pìobairean', thàinig am boireannach bu bhòidhche a chunnaic e riamh thuige. Cho luath is a chunnaic MacCruimein am boireannach sguir e de chluich na pìoba mòire; agus mus do a bhàsaich mac-talla a' chiùil sna beanntan mun cuairt, thuirt i ris:

Thug do mhaise is ceòl do phìoba
leannan-sìthe air do thòir;
sìneam dhut an sionnsar airgid
a bhios binn gun chearb dod mheòir.
Fhad gu bràth 's a nì thu chumail
cha tig cunnart ann ad chòir;
là is bliadhna triall fo gheasaibh,
...

It's Scottish Gaelic and it talks about one of the saddest songs in Gaeldom (and there is NOBODY more skilled at sad songs than the Gael!), "Cha Til MacCrimmon" ("MacCrimmon, home, no more returning") -- composed by one if the bagpipe greats, the evening before he died on a battlefield and proved his prophecy.

Given title translates roughly as "The ghost-chanter of MacCrimmon" ("chanter" being the melodic portion of the pipes).
