    Thank goodness for hotlists or I might never have seen this.

    As far as my health, I think it's a ten-year cycle. Last time I was this sick for most of the year was ten years ago. Plus, this is the first year without all the stressful things keeping me on the edge almost every waking second (with poor chance of sleep) so I think I'm catching up added to the compromising of all the previous stress. Sort of a forced healing I guess.

    I'll try and drop you a line. I lost access to my last email when a new feature was rolled out so I had to get another account set up. Right now though I'm playing a bit of catch-up from the last 10+ days so it may be a bit. Look for me.

    And thanks for asking. It's always good to see you PK... and vcmvo2.

    Hope you are well and that your husband is mending well too.

      health.  If you would try some cilantro, I think it would help end this nasty cycle.

      Hub is finally on the mend.  Any forward movement is inspiring in that area.  Be a miracle if one of us doesn't kill the other for crabbiness but we both want the same thing so we might as well cool it and be patient.  If I knew what that is it would help.  Patience.  Have to look that up.  Doesn't sound like anything I recognize.

        Again, I would have missed this if not for the hotlist. Which I'd been avoiding because I had so much to do.

        Yeah right, the problem is I have had cilantro in my mouth all too often and never by choice. If it's in the food even a tiny amount I can tell. It's overpowering. It's all I can taste and it destroys all. Must... Spit... Food... Out!

        Seems there is an enzyme and/or double recessive gene at play. I am by far not the only one. I can list off a dozen other kossoks easily who despise it as well.

        However, it turns out cilantro isn't the only plant that causes problems. Some people can't manage cabbage and others from the cabbage family (which I love) or hops in beer (which I can't abide either).

        I did finally figure out why I don't like wine. I don't like grapes. Not of any kind including raisins though I will have a couple handfuls of grapes (preferably black) each year if they are fresh. When I did try to drink wine I did actually like rhubarb wine. Which made me think I was a rube.

        Glad to hear hubby's getting better. I was worried over how harsh it seemed at first. I can't imagine how stressed you must have been. Now, despite that it's easier you must be exhausted from the cumalative.
