Chronic pain isn’t pleasant. Medicine sometimes works and sometimes it doesn’t. My transformation, in a matter of a few hours, with only one relapse in almost four months (because I went back to my old eating habits), makes my life so much more enjoyable. A few of you will say it is all ‘in my head’ and maybe some of it is. To be honest, if my believing that my diet change has gotten rid of my chronic pain it really doesn’t matter The snow that fell locally on March 22 was quite impressive; by noon we had eight inches and it was still coming down with conviction. Surely this will add to the volume of runoff once it warms up again. My daughter went to the coast where the snow is gone. She enjoyed dog walking on bare ground. Happy birthday to Angelica Goodheart, Peg Haviland, Sharon Jones, Carolyn Keck, Paul Perry, Joyce Emery, Aroline MacArthur, Judy Longto, and Marilyn Seminerio. West Newbury hosts the annual turkey supper, summer festival, spring variety show and now the spring pancake breakfast. There was a constant flow of people, and the many workers kept the plates full all morning. There was no need for seconds for me because I got more than I could eat with my first serving. Put it on your calendar for next year. The concert at West Newbury Church on March 21 was spectacular. The pianist, Dr. Winn, performed beautifully on the grand piano, and Kathryn DeBoer was a delight to hear. Halls Lake news: As I write this on March 22, I would say Halls Lake Road is impassable. I almost got stuck as I traveled to the pancake breakfast. A few days laterl discovered I couldn’t drive faster than 50 because my car would vibrate terribly. The garage cleaned out my wheels and reported that they were packed tightly with mud. I guess I should refrain from going “m udding” in my being pain free. I have great empathy for those with chronic pain and if even one of you are helped by the seminars, such as those listed next, life will be so much better. On April 5 there is going to be aweb- ex, “Eating for Parkinson”, beginning at 4:30 p.m.. Go to wwww.drlaleh..com/ workshops for more information.

He is good in a home with other dogs but no kids or cats. He is housebroken, cratetrained, neu- tered, UTD on vax. Pedey is about 5 Subru. My topic this week is the Farmhouse Kitchen Wood stove. Ours was a workhorse. It kept both the kitchen and diningroom warm. After sleeping up- stairs in a cold bedroom or being outside in winter, sitting in front of stove with my feet on the open oven door was a delight. My mother and father knew how much wood and which kind to put in the firebox to bake bread, roasts, or cakes and cookies. There was no thermostat. Oh yes, it also heated the water for the house. The top of the stove cooked stews, soup, and even boiled the clothes before they went into the cement tubs to hand scrub on scrub boards. Next week I’ I] share memories of our early electrically-run appliances like our “washing machine.” Mondays were wash days; my mother spent untold hours ofher life hanging wash outside on the perch in the winter and out in the yard in warmer weather. In fact, on one memorable day for Mama, she was hanging out the wash in August when she was stung by a wasp. This induced labor which resulted in me being born prematurely; I was four pounds two oucnes at birth. Back then there were no incubators or medical procedures for premature babies. Without a lot of confidence, I was sent home in a shoe box that I shared with a hot water bottle. My parents kept me by the kitchen wood stove to keep me warm, and I survived. Newbury Edee Thurston (802) 866-5532 Bill’s niece, Barb DiDomenico from North Haverhill, Visited them on March 21. Wayne Foote, a friend from North Haverhill also called on them.
