Chris, very good news that your migraine has ended and you are back to normal. Do you think the migraine was stress related, even as your challenges have calmed down a bit? I very rarely have migraines so have no idea what to suggest. 

I use the"Stop, Breathe, and Think" program these days. They are short little blurbs that help me stay centered. I expect this option is too simplistic, however, I offer it as a daily meditation practice.

Thanks peeps.  The diet is still taking fat off my bod.  Every once in a while, I get a craving for carbohydrates, but I've only given-in once or twice, and then didn't eat much.  I've lost 25 pounds in 48 days.

I had my blood drawn yesterday, and will see the doctor next week to go over the results of the blood tests.

Spud, your garden will bring you many pleasures in additionb to reducing you food costs. My family has made a commitment to get off the grid as soon as possible and grow as much food as we can. Your gardens of the past years have inspired me. You did it, and will do just fine. 
I do hope you are able to get your food stamp total restored. There are some things people just cannot grow themselves. 
When I moved to Spokane 41 years ago with y three ten year old children, I went to a Mom and Pop store and told them the things I was doing to put nutritious food on the table. I was not able to supply as much fresh food in the winter as I hoped because I bought my home on July 1 and didn't have time to grow and make anything except sauerkraut and root crops. I asked the owners if they had suggestions for me. They offered to allow me to scrounge in their back room for milk, eggs, meat, beans and such staples. That got me through my first winter. 
I continue to shop at that store 41 years later for all my groceries. I am a faithful customer and they know me by name 

By all means, keep thinking of other options than food stamps. I, and my children lived in a more compassionate food-stamp-world than you now confront. Don't give up. There continue to be compassionate people.

They know so well how to bring people into trouble - I hope you manage, Spud!

Wow, Spud, that's not much. How's that diet coming?

Glad you're feeling better Plinius. 

I've not been able to access the internet for 2 days, but it's back on today.  Hope it stays that way.

Just finished my re-evaluation for food stamps.  I'll continue receiving $16/month.  I was hoping it would go back up to $89/month like it was for 2 years when the rules were different.

Thanks, I slept it off last night, and made a good breakfast with a fruit and seeds smoothie.

I am considering returning to Greece next May on another Sierra Club hiking trip. Reading your comments about Greek food is a great persuader!

Chris, get well soon.

Daniel, your kitchen is so beautiful and looks like a nice place to create all he delicious flavors you prepare. I like the cabinet and the way you used colors. You have so many skills; I enjoy your writings and photos.

Chris, I hope your full recovery is fast and complete.
