  1. how are you doing? i have been wondering about you.

  2. Dearest friends, Thank all of you for your helping hands that helped to pay for some of the snakebite related medical expenses. It is enough, so I am asking that the donation button be closed. Mais cher! You have been such good medicine for a bad day! --PureCajunSunshine
  3. Bless all y'all, and thanks so much for your prayers, good thoughts and sweet helping hands! Here's my story (and then some, lol!): http://mrssurvival.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=36784&st=0&start=0
  4. Meow!!!!!!!!!! Congrats on a brand new 'kitten'-to-be!!!! ((((((Big Cat, Little Cat, and Kitten-to-be)))))
  5. Oh boy! ohboyohboy! This is one of the coolest things I've ever seen on the internet! Great idea for this forum!!! But wait! What? No cookwagon? (Back in the old days, did a wagon train have one of those?) If so, maybe I can get over this snakebite in time to rustle one up, if'n someone hasn't already beaten me to it. Y'all wanna hire an authentic Creole/Cajun cook? I can cook beans just as well as a Texan, I guarantee. And mais cher! Lookit the size of that beignet! I do Jambalaya and Gumbo pretty good too. Oh, I can hunt real well too. I
  6. To each, her own...and I have the BTDT tee shirt! In a hardship situation, I'd look at the live critters as 'extra protein', but it's the dead critters in the food that's the problem. In the normal course of things, we all eat bits and pieces of dead bugs without knowing (even the FDA allows so many bug parts per quantity of foodstuff)... But an abundance of decomposing and moldering bug bodies isn't good! If I find bugs in my pantry, I will routinely inspect suspect foodstuffs with a magnifying glass to determine that there's not significant evidence of bug die-off going on. If not, th
  7. Hi there! Thanks for asking... look at this one, scroll down a bit, under "Forum Topics" and you'll see all the threads that are up for voting. http://mrssurvival.com/forums/index.php?showforum=56 I'm the knucklehead that cooked this forum up then tried to explain it all. lol Sorry 'bout that! As you can see, it still needs a lil' tweaking. Thanks to your questions, I see where I need to make some adjustments! I appreciate your patience. Please let me know if this link clears things up or not...
  8. "When there's a will, there's a way"... I'll be there too! Making coffee now...
  9. AUDIO-BOOKS!!!! Hearing those superfine audio-book voices, and being intellectually entertained at the same time might be just the ticket! Don't push yourself. All that work will still be there when you get better, 'tain't going nowhere, nohow. I have not yet read this whole thread, 'cause I can't sit for long...but just wanna let you know that I hope you can keep in touch best you can! Thinking of you often, with lots of hugs, kisses and misses, Sharon
  10. I read somewhere (don't remember where) that sometimes a haze will appear on the surface of some syrups and that it is harmless. Occasionally this has formed on the surface of my syrups, but eventually it disappears. Does anyone know what causes this haze? On my blog, someone asked me about a 'questionable' film that formed on the surface of her recently made elderberry syrup that was made with a stout concentration of 70% sugar... http://purecajunsunshine.blogspot.com/2009...ed-to-know.html Here's what I told her: It is possible your sister may be seeing what I
  11. Before you venture into these websites, notify your next of kin, because you may not come out for days...Between these two sites, there's a nice collection of 1,650,328 books written from 1620 to 1999...most of them are from the early 1800s and mid twentieth century. These old books and journals have been rendered into electronic form, and are free to anyone. The first link is agriculturally related, the second one deals with all things related to home and hearth.... http://chla.library.cornell.edu/ The Core Historical Literature of Agriculture (CHLA) is a core electronic

  13. There are many edible plants that are used as vegetables in some parts of the world but look like 'weeds' to those who are unfamiliar with them. To mention a few: Orach... Lamb's Quarters (Magentaspreen) Calaloo (vegetable amaranth, Carribean type) ...I'm growing it this year and it is delicious and pretty as an ornamental! All are available from Johnny's Seeds. http://www.johnnyseeds.com
  14. The link nmchick posted contains additional links to similar threads (thanks!). Here's another one! Crop failure, what if… (contains lots of info on kudzu and Jerusalem artichoke) http://mrssurvival.com/forums/index.php?sh...garden&st=0
  15. Hey Christy, I love that spa / canning station / laundry room you got going there in the barn! It might be a good thing that the woodburner is in the corner...that way, if wintertime finds you still having to bathe in the barn, you can string up 'curtains' of sorts to make a smaller triangular 'room' and trap some of that fire's heat to warm yo' cold wet booty! Do you think your house will be renovated enough to do indoor baths by wintertime?
