Paget51 Hikergal, What a beautiful daughter and grandbaby! You are blessed. :)
My new son-in-law is a handsome man. He is half black, and the rest of his relatives are German, English. Daughter is Norwegian/English, and neon white like me. Poor thing, she burns whenever she is out in the sun. I'm looking forward to being a grandma someday. In the meantime, I sure like being a virtual auntie to all these darling babies!

FL Homeschool Mom wow, thanks for sharing, Hikergal. Your daughter is beautiful and she passed that on to her baby. You must be so proud.

Hikergal posted on Coffee Klatch I have been thinking about "our" Charzi and Miss Tori I am blessed to have 4 sisters and when my 2nd daughter was born my 1st thought was "thank you Lord Jenn has a sister"so I went to http://www.quotegarden.com/sisters.html and couldn't choose one. I know I would not be who I am without my sisters both my real sisters and my cyber sisters.

Surfhut My big sister passed away a few years ago. I don't know how my little sister and I would have made it through without each other. Also have a girlfriend from childhood who is my sister. And now I'm blessed with cyber sisters!

Surfhut When my husband died, I was a complete wreck. My sister flew out from OKC to be with me and help me get everything done. The second I saw her when she stepped off the airplane, I knew everything was going to be OK. And it was. I love you, Treesie!

Rollingcow I grew up about a mile from my SIL, she's been my friend forever and is a sister in the true sense of the word. She has five sisters I've know for almost as long and can't seem to rid of, nosy gals aways butting into my business and irritating me to no end. Hmm, guess I've got sisters after all. Mrs. Cow
Surfhut Plus you have cyber sisters, Mrs. Cow! I want to break out in that song We are family. I've got all my sisters with me !

Surfhut HG, we do the same thing at our weddings! So much fun, even the old gals jump in after they've had a glass.

Rollingcow I guess I think it goes without saying that everyone here is my sister-except Phooey who is a brother. Mrs. Cow
Labrador Heaven They clearly are war mother and/or sister. It never ends. Closure is just a nice word for nothing of any consequence, really. It makes others feel better to say it as an end point to sentence that makes them feel better. The real loss is shuffled endlessly into the deck of life cards, but you never forget or are allowed respite, holiday or not.
And today, our hostess is still reminded of loss. Josh did the same as any soldier - plodding in an endless loop down to The Pit to save what he could, retrieve what he could if possible, and continue right into fall-over exhaustion, day in and out. Rescue, Recover and Revenge. And he reminded businesses along the way how to *properly* fly the American flag in the midst of that crisis and disaster. We miss Josh terribly, and honor him today as well. Newcomers may not know of those terrible days on this board, but go back and read the archives on archive.org, or ask on the board.

MsCharlotteVale I'm not much on noise stuff. If you'll look closely to the right, I'm over in a corner discussing conspiracy theories with some poor, unfortunate soul who's trapped by my charisma. hahaha.

Hikergal posted on Main Page The Lobby this may belong on the gardening wall but I thought it was very interesting. Ramps are a VERY VERY pungent plant and when eaten they exude thru the skin so that you get strange looks questioning your health habits.I tought this might help clear up "Stinky" Obama.The plant called Chicagou in the language of native tribes was once thought to be Allium cernuum, the nodding wild onion, but research in the early 1990s showed the correct plant was the ramp. and that is what Chicago was named for a stinky plant!!!
Hikergal It's hard to explain I need t figure how to attach an image but if you Scroogle Ramps the wiki entry is very good

Betty Jean I just figured he emitted waves of arugula, nicotine, cocaine (don't know if you can smell that or marijuana) and hatefulness.

Hikergal thanks Donal I got it on the Garden wall .Ramps smell like food writer Jane Snow once described it, "like fried green onions with a dash of funky feet,"

Olhokie64 Hikergal, what part of West Virginia are you from? I believe only West Virgians knew about ramps. They smell and taste awful. i know what they look like and do not want to see a picture of ramps.

Hikergal I'm originally from NY state but live in NC when I hiked the Appalachian Trail I was introduced to them. They can bee found any where along the hills of the east. When you eat re-hydrated food all the time fresh stuff is nice and after a day on the trail they didn't smell to bad and they seemed to help keep the bugs away (the non-hikers too LOL)

FL Homeschool Mom Have you ever been around someone who ate a gyro? My husband had one for lunch one day and I could still smell it on him the next morning. I told him the next time he eats it he can just sleep on the couch. Yuck!
March 31 at 17:38 EST .
Ynaught Gyro? We have them often and I have never noticed any smell.

FL Homeschool Mom He picked it up in Orlando -- I don't know what was in it, but it was strong!!

MsCharlotteVale Heavy seasonings come out of your pores. I won't go into anecdotes but it's the truth.

Wrightwinger I have never eaten them, but ramps are relatives of wild onions and wild garlic. They have a very powerful effect on the human systems especially the sweat glands and the breath and other end. Jim Comstock, former editor of "The West Virginia Hillbilly" newspaper once mixed ramp juice with his ink, and mailed a bunch of newspapers to former WV residents who had moved to other states. The Post Office was not pleased! I suspect it is an acquired taste, and entire towns indulge together in ramp festivals to spread the wealth, and the local perfume. Richwood is the Ramp place to be in the spring.
