    what happened to the rest of the recipe? It sound like something I could make for my mom.

    Thanks, I’ll have to check with the Yankee “blogmaster” tomorrow. I have no idea why it\’s cut off like that! Stay tuned….Edie

    I hope you get to feeling better, Edie! What a struggle you have had with this disease! The recipe sounds delicious. I love butternut squash!

    Thank you for the article on Lyme Disease. In 1970 I suffered tick bites while training in Fort Dix, New Jersey and soon after I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, a diagnoses we now know was incorrect. No one really knew about the disease in 1970 and it wasn’t until I was married to a doctor who became interested in my story that blood tests were taken and it was discovered that I am loaded with signs of Lyme Disease. As I type this I’m am having the same symptoms that you had and will now look further into treatment. I didn’t know, until I read your article, that the disease can be persistent. I wish both of us good health.

    Oh, yes, the symptoms can come and go. I have heard about an acupuncturist who specializes in Lyme and I plan to make an appointment with him. A friend who had one of the most horrifying Lyme experiences that I’ve heard of (yet) recovered but never completely until she saw this man and claims that her visits with him made the difference between being sort of well and being really well. I can’t know how she feels but she has never looked better. Your experience of your diagnosis is very common, esp. in those early years. The doctors who were studying the disease were, for the most part, RA specialists, which is one reason why the full range of the disease’s symptoms were unknown for so long. None so blind as a specialist. I also wish you good health and successful treatment, whatever you choose. I hope I’m confident in saying, you CAN get better! Edie

    Edie—this is Ruth (Bixby) Bray—I found a YANKEE A FEW MONTHS BACK—did leave a comment—if there was a reply I missed it. We met years ago when as a Home Health Aide I met you at our first Hospise meeting in Salamanca & you spoke to us. I have since retired but I still do some as a Hopice volunteer—mostly in line with Fund raising. I’m really OLD now–& other than some miserable siasica I keep moving. Lost 1st husband some years ago & have remarried. You have spent so many years as a widow. I know you have an enjoyable life in you delightful home & Yankee. You did know we were traveling and stopped by (few years ago now)? Don’t travel only “To TOWN ” now. “I’m awfully well for the Shape I’m in” Keep up all your good writing— Ruth
