Listen well to the children ... they say the strangest things containing alien intelligence ... a step ahead of their parents that settled for what they know years ago --- Art Linkletter of the stuff kids say! Jack's following part should listen! There may be secrets hidden in the boners mentioned ...

One should learn strange thing that they don't know at present ... intellect is extensive ... kind 've out there for those determined otherwise!

Winder .... ???? Cranked??? Gets around the concept of a straight etic when doing etudes! Imagine word variance! Something additional to look into ... more words out there than imaginable ... in some belief systems words are restrained, bridled and restricted ... wiles ain't bridled ... is out there in some minds ... some reasonable confinement is suggested in certain environments ... uncertain environments may blow! Thus becoming extensive space ... perhaps eternal!

Look up at night and the darkness does get going around ... all chimera -Y! There may be chiral connections ... as chelate! The spot mist ... in German that's something lunged! Sometimes aero sols are good for breathing difficulties ... especially when there are natural scenes that take it away ... sol that isn't? Is that negative of just deficit in wiles ...

I'm told that great pools of word are dark to a host of people and thus intimidating! Can you imagine this in polity?

Creepers ... thus I drag along ob serving ... ob stanantly! Nantes being a real place ... in the great wandering path E? The pain of awareness ... and prickly sensations! Laurels ...

Then wholly (completely, totally, absolutely, entirely, fully, thoroughly, utterly, quite, perfectly, altogether, downright) may leave someone a bit mistered ... if someone has dropped a sheep on you! Wouldn't that be Marah in a sea of entangled fibers ...? Just Ur OBI'n about in an bodily extraction ... copy making functions! Some take it very piously and do not recognize the relaxation syndrome ... that follows the daily stimulus of living!

May cause some Eris and dissonance in the populace that knows no different! Mental storms of particles in the dark ... NU Rons?

Thus the unspeakable caldron is stirred ... by ineffable scenes ... ladies in the lake? Naked angels in filmy wear ... almost invisible ... at least there are people that cannot see such art ... transient booty ...

I stewed up the remainder of my peaches yesterday. I love fresh fruit but two old people can only eat so many before they start to get soft. So have a bowl of stewed peaches with your toast this morning - and be grateful for all the good fruit and vegies we have at this time of the year. No wonder Canadians choose autumn as the season of thanksgiving.

I went to the Honey Festival yesterday in a small community in the beautiful setting of the Avon river. All kinds of honey products. The museum at the edge of the river was slanted like a ship in a storm ( the portrait of the stern school teacher greeted you at the door- she was the wife of a captain), glad those school days are over. They had an environmentally study done and showed a map that clearly showed that the low lying areas that were diked in including the museum, will be flooded within a year at least with every high tide meeting a storm or high winds.

Next week is Garlic Festival there, with a garlic eating contest. I can’t imagine that someone will do that. Healthier than hotdogs, though.

T'is the season of festivals - and fall fairs :) We dropped in to see good friends today - it was 'tomato sauce day' - which we have heard about for decades, but never witnessed. Italian heritage tradition - now taken on by the next generation in the family & their young adult children, friends & cousins. Processing 7 bushels - or maybe 8? So interesting to see the early cooking in a big pot on an outdoor propane element (used once a year for this purpose), next to cool to just the right consistency & be put through a special grinder that removes the skin & seeds & spits them out one channel while the ground pulp goes out another channel into big buckets. The pulp is strained further to drain out more water, then taken into the house where salt is added & it is cooked more in a big pot on the stove top - until it meets the 'spoon test'. The wooden spoon must stand independently at whatever angle it is placed in the pot. When thick enough, it is ladled into waiting sterilized jars, each with a large sprig of basil in the bottom. The tops are put on the jars & then they are taken to the dining room. In a corner on the floor, they are all placed tightly together on top of several thick comforters & wrapped well with other comforters. This retains the heat and they cool over several days before being moved to storage. Interesting process for sure, with lots of happy workers! Sure smelled delicious too!!

Yep. Western Fair is on (or maybe ending, I forget), the airshow is this weekend, and the annual pow-wow at the Museum of Ontario Archaeology is on. I can hear the last from open windows since the museum is just across Medway Creek from me.

BTW, it's an interesting museum for those who aren't familiar with it. It's on an actual archaeological site, an indigenous village dating to pre-European times. They've reconstructed one of the longhouses, have a display of artifacts, and run various events and courses including summer camps to introduce kids to archaeology. And, AFAIK, they get on okay with the local indigenous community (which are, IIRC, a different nation from the one that built the place due to migrations).

Went to the discovery centre’s exhibition of slow animals- did you know that the sloth only poops once every three weeks and for that it goes all the way down to the ground from its high rain forrest tree, so it can burry it, because otherwise if it just drops it from above, predators could discover it. Because it just hangs there in the tree in the rain, it usually gets all covered in moss, giving it a camouflage. Nature is so smart- how come humans turned out so stupid?

Thus the expression sloe down and live ... hang like a gift in the trees ... aton ... that was a'mon in another tradition ... unknown factors! Runs parallel to mammon in Nordic ... when conjoined something will fly ... in essence!

Realize it is a trap or loupe ... the great circle as O! Nothing like it? It is disputed over ...

My loved your description of this festival in the details of making tomato paste. Your description of the special grinder separating the g ood from the bad, reminds me of an old-fashioned farm cream separator. I well remember watching my uncles carrying milk from the barn to the porch where grandma (after saving some for household use} would pour the milk into the separator. We kids would beg to turn the handle and watch the milk coming out one spout, and the rich cream coming out the other. I found it hard to understand why the cream was valued, while the skimmed milk was mostly given to the pigs. Mom explained that the cream was sold to the dairy for money needed to buy the things that couldn't be grown on the farm.

In the spirit of the Fall Fair season, the coffee and tea cart has added optional Pumpkin Spice flavoring for just about anything that can be imagined. Enjoy.

* shakes head sadly *

Pumpkin spice belongs in pumpkin pie or other desserts, not in tea.

* ignores pumpkin spice and pours an Earl Grey instead *

I had a pumpkin spice coffee at Timmys the other day....eeww! And I love pumpkin.
By the way if anyone doesn't know, McDonalds sells every size coffee at a lower price for seniors, but you have to ask for it to get the lower price.

And, per my son, McCafe is supposedly better than Timmy's at this point. At least it's his preferred coffee shop coffee. In fact, I think he said that they are using the supplier that Timmy's used to use before the BK merger.

McDonald's coffee is far better than Tim's now. I doubt I would ever try a pumpkin coffee at Tim's or McD's. Now, a pumpkin latte from Starbucks or a similar place is quite nice. That being said, one or two per season is enough.

I've had my coffee and am now working on a small pot of Irish Breakfast tea. Yum.

The tea is what I need today. I decided to call a couple of medical clinics yesterday to see if there are any doctors taking new patients. That turned out to be more depressing than necessary. I sent an email to HealthLinkBC to see if they have any resources to help and got a useless email in response. Basically, the gist is I have to call clinics. They suggested a nurse practitioner which is a good suggestion. The link they gave me for the nurses association is useless for finding someone. You need the nurse's name for the search. Very unhelpful.

So, I've been sitting here with my earphones in watching Big Brother and The View on my phone. I have come to realize that one reason I am so bummed out is that it feels like I'll go from having am amazing health team to being set adrift when I need follow-up. I'm sure things will work out. In the meantime I'll have my funk and tea.

Is there a new development near you at all? That is one thing this area is not lacking in now at all, there are so many new clinics and most have doctors who did not come with a bunch of patients already.

If you do, go for a drive, note down the names of clinics you pass and then you can look them up and call (or drop in and ask at reception if you feel like it right then).

Surely must feel discouraging and worriesome Northwind. It's a normally anxious time when finishing up treatment & feeling adrift with no family doc makes it even moreso. I do hope something turns up soon for you. Is there a walk-in clinic you use in the meantime? Not the best for sure. Does your sis have a GP? If so - any possibility of her requesting them to accept you as a family member? Sometimes that happens here.

I know my own Dad (also an island resident) wanted to change family docs & simply could not as nobody else could be located who was taking new patients. Serious situation for everyone out there.
