    Re: ~cattleman cafe~ & another 24...

    Another 24 hours please & thank you.

    Big Al, as Cowboy said, your quit will eventually stick. Until then, every day you don’t drink, you win and the beast loses.

    Mrs QW had her scan yesterday afternoon, now we wait a few days for the results to get to her doctor. And across the street from the health centre was a protest by anti-vaxxers. We spoke with a few of the over worked staff and they found it very disheartening.
    And watching the protesters were several police and peace officers. Yet one more expense paid for by tax payers so these protesters can have their say. It would be ironic if this became a super spreader event and many of them contracted COVID and required hospitalization wouldn’t it.

    Off for a walk in cool but dry conditions.

    Thanks for brekkie Cowboy. I hope you get the day off to spend with Bubba and Hank.

    Have a great af Sunday everyone!

    BigAl, don't you dare erase those days! If you got 99% on a test you wouldn't count it as a fail so don't count a one day slip as a fail. Just mark that day differently and keep counting! You got this!

    I've started some biofeedback for my pain. Fascinating what the brain is capable of!

    QW, it makes me sad about the antifaxers. Just saw a news report about a man with colon cancer that can't get it removed because all the ICU beds are full because of unvaccinated covid patients.

    I hope we all have an easy AF day. And remember, every day we beat the beast is a win, don't let a slip here and there beat you up, that's just what the beast wants!! 24 more for me!

    Re: ~cattleman cafe~ & another 24...

    I am amazed all all the things I don't know!! LOL But, here's a surprise for you, Ginger and Cowboy:

    "Although they look similar, canola and rapeseed plants and oils are very different. Canadian scientists used traditional plant breeding in the 1960s to practically eliminate two undesirable components of rapeseed — erucic acid from oil and glucosinolates from meal — to create “canola,” a contraction of “Canadian” and “ola.” Canola oil is prized for its heart-healthy properties with the least saturated fat of all common culinary oils."

    I did a little research and found that nugget on the U.S. Canola Association website: What is Canola? – About Us – U.S. Canola Association – non-profit to increase U.S. canola production | U.S. Canola Association

    So I guess technically there wasn't a name change for PC reasons. Unless my source is incorrect.

    Slow day around here I guess...

    Ginger, I think the PT will help a lot. I did a course of it for leg pain and it did the trick for me. Mine included traction. I am on 300mg of Gabapentin at night. I hope you get relief soon!

    Re: ~cattleman cafe~ & another 24...

    Good morning Cafe friends and canola oil enthusiasts. That’s right @BigAl, dust yourself off and move forward. If it were easy, there would be a lot more folks here. However, once you make it stick, and you will, your life will just get better and better. For me, i would feel so much better after a few days of sobriety that I convinced myself I could handle a few drinks without serious consequences. It took several of these back steps before I realized I preferred the days of clarity. It is a process not a program.

    It is a gorgeous day here. Just back from a run as this is a rather late post for me. With a deep sense of gratitude I accept another 24 along with all you amazing folks. Have a wonderful day. Blessings x

    Re: ~cattleman cafe~ & another 24...

    Good afternoon Cafe Friends. I have learned more about canola than I ever thought I would know. It's not a crop that you see here, we are mostly beans and corn, some wheat, a tiny bit of milo, but that's it. The good farmers rotate, the bad ones abuse their land for money. We had a few volunteer corn plants in one of our bean fields and Dad pointed at it and said "I love to see those corn plants popping up, it tells everyone who knows better that we had corn in this bean field last year."

    The chalkboard is good for me, I know that a 99% is still a passing test but I want some pain to accompany a slip. My pain is erasing the numbers off of that board so that I see it and my wife sees it and I can reflect on it properly. I am back on the horse. Going to supper tonight at the farm. I passed on the '34 Ford, just needed too much work and the '68 C10 is worth more than what they wanted to trade for.

    All of you are in my thoughts, those awaiting test results, those starting a new pain regimen, and those just living life to the fullest. 24 more for me please and thanks.

    5:42am in Alberta, another 24 please, and thanks...

    In the last 24 hours, these people have signed in for 24 hours of wellness:
    @Jude58 @dill @Quit wining @paulywogg @Ginger999 @techie @BigAl abcowboy

    Today is going to be a darn good day not to drink!
    Quitting and staying quit isn't easy, its learning a whole new way of thinking. It's accepting a new way of life, and not just accepting it, embracing it...
    Worry about tomorrow, tomorrow. Just get through today. Tomorrow will look after itself when it becomes today, because today is all we have to think about.
    Friendship is not about how many friends you have or who you've known the longest. It's about who walked into your life, said "I'm here for you", and proved it.

    Well, would you look at that, I stand corrected @dill. It makes me wonder now if rapeseed was ever planted in our area. I'm going to have to check with the senior farm boss today! Thank you for that information!

    I didn't get the whole day off yesterday, it dried up enough for us to get the remaining 70 acres of swathed canola finished. We drove all the equipment back to the yard and then I headed back to Veg to have supper and spend the evening with Bubba and Hank. Head back out this morning to do 50 hour services on the combines, fuel them up, then get at the last 1000 acres of standing canola. The weather looks good for this week, so as long as the canola is ready, we'll finish up before the weekend!

    Crop rotation is practiced by everyone up here @BigAl, it's simply a must since summer fallowing became a thing of the past!
