Peanut/Tree Nut Allergy / Re: Pine nuts - safe brand???
« Last post by shushanikefforts on September 13, 2022, 08:33:09 AM »
Me too. I can't even look at pine nuts and already have allergy symptoms. I am allergic to a lot of food, so I carefully choose the food I eat. It is a disadvantage and an advantage at the same moment. First, I am pickier at what I eat and usually try to eat healthy food, for example, organic granola, so I don't develop allergies. On the other hand, I can't normally go to a restaurant, because I need to ask every time about the ingredients of the food they serve, so I don't get something I am allergic to.

Usually I am the last one to get my flu shot in this house, I spend too much time getting everyone else scheduled.  This year, with 3 kids in college....I am first.  Got it yesterday! 

Of course I am badgering the kids by text to watch for campus clinics and register to get theirs.  DH typically can get one at work, not sure when they will be offering and he rarely goes in.

Driving home I just kept thinking about Mumaluke.   :bye:  Hope things are good!

Thank you for thinking of us!!  And I am happy to hear your put yourself first this year  :happydance: 

Great reminder for all, It's that time of year to get your annual flu shot!!  According to the CDC, you can get your Covid and Flu at the same time if anyone is in the boat.

Things are well on our end, but unfortunately we are heading back into flu season and the stirs many emotions for our family. But as we do every year, we will be reminding folks of the importance of their annual flu vaccine.

No sign of caterpillars. And the plants are in my yard, so no pesticides.

Heís never had problems eating tomatoes, but heís also never previously had problems with the plant. I did say, at least we have Claritin, and Iíll let him use one of my epiís. He actually laughed.

Not necessarily.  Was the plant treated with pesticides?  Does he normally eat tomatoes without a problem?

So my sister has a friend who has to cover all skin in order to mow the lawn in Maine due to a caterpillar.

DH appears to have had a reaction to touching a tomato plant.  Would that mean eating the tomatoes would be risky?
