    Peg, I don't understand these doctors who just move away without making adequate arrangements for the patients they're leaving. Shame on your ex-neuro for not referring you to an arrangement that would work for you and your infusion.

    I've seen Ragu and other pasta sauces on supermarket shelves but never tried them. I used to make spaghetti often and had 3 different recipes I used. I used canned tomatoes and canned tomato sauce though and sometimes even broke down and used canned mushrooms instead of fresh.

    I always thought spaghetti to involve quite a bit of effort, I guess.

    School lunchrooms have a way of serving really dismal spaghetti. I thought the readymade kind might taste like that. But you people here are eating Ragu and liking it. Maybe I'll give it a try.

    Cool

    It's really good Agate, and like Cat pointed out, there are a variety on different ingredients added, just pick one that suits your taste. And add a meat. Most folks just add ground beef, but I mostly use ground turkey. I feel like beef has so many injections when it's alive, turkey probably has less, or none. I can't imagine giving a flock of turkeys a shot!

    I've got a good recipe for spaghetti sauce, and another for pizza sauce but I find the bottled sauces an acceptable substitute. Make the pasta, add meat (cooked), heat sauce, toss together. I usually add extra oregano and basil, but that's not necessary. We have it often as it's quick and easy. (And you can make it meatless if you want).

    Thanks for the heads up on the bottled spaghetti sauce!

    I'm afraid turkeys and chickens are pumped full of antibiotics. I really wish they'd stop this. It's very dangerous. I don't know if they get an injection or a pill. I can imagine that on a large turkey farm there'd be a regular assembly line for turkeys getting their shots....

    I watched part of the video, and it looks as if the antibiotics are added to the water.

    Ann, maid showed up today. It's alright, since I go at such a slow pace when I do the whole house it takes me at least 3 days. I will vacuum after she finishes with her work and leaves. It really is fine, but I would like to know and she could have just called me yesterday. She said she forgot. I like and trust her so I will try to continue on. She has done this before and then shows up later.

    Guess I don't understand, Virginia. The maid comes to clean but you do the vacuuming?

    I'm wondering if she could do the vacuuming? I find vacuuming to be one of the harder jobs.

    Cool

    I have all my stuff I ordered this month, except my CBD oil. Is that the name? Anyway, it's going to be the last package coming in. My Amazon stuff got here, my bills are all paid, so nothing else waiting to be done.

    Well, make a meal. I have the pasta and coleslaw I made yesterday, so bread in the toaster oven, pasta in the microwave, and a glass of soy milk. THEN I get to drink a few beers. WOOOHOOOO!!!!

    I saw you on the bus today, Howie. I knew you by your hair - long gray ponytail w some yellow at the tip. You were wearing blue and white polkadot walking shorts and an orange logo shirt (probably said, "I'm not drunk, I have MS"). I must say, you have gained alot of weight!!

    Saw the doc today for swollen ankles. New for about 6 weeks. I have to have stress cardiac echo and take lasix! Not liking this.

    Ann, you can't eat pasta everyday, and not add a FEW pounds!

    ANN, doctors always seem to dream up tests if you go in with a problem. Often they're just trying to make sure they've covered all the bases in case you get in a suing mood later on.

    I don't think it was Howie you saw on the bus. Polkadot shorts aren't a thong.
