Noca, by any chance do you live in an area where your water comes from your own well? When my son was young he had horrible IBS. We tried everything we could think of and then someone suggested the water. We switched him to bottled water and his problems stopped. Some mineral in the well water seem...

I smoked for around thirty years. My husband and I both quit nine years ago. I used a nicotine inhaler to help quit, so there might be something to the idea as nicotine as an assist for ASD. I sure think cigarettes and all of the paraphernalia are great for stimming. Play with the cigarette, the pac...

For most of my life I was very, very picky. I hated "big" things like kidney beans. The only spices were salt and pepper. I will try new things sometimes now but only a bite or so, not a whole meal.

US English has been creeping in thanks to Microsoft and Windows default languages. And while the affectionate term for mother is o...

I do "Nordic " walking. You use poles similar to ski poles except they have rubber boot-like feet. You have to be prepared to be teased about using them in the warm months! They give a super upper body work out in addition to the benefits of walking. They take a lot of weight off your hip ...
