By the time I got to the store to buy my herring, there wasn't much left.  A couple jars of creamed herring and some jars from Poland were all that were left.  Interesting combos in the jars from Poland though.  Along with very large pieces of herring, there was cabbage and onions, carrots and cabbage and pepperocinni and onions.  Knowing my husband would go "yuck" with the first two, I opted for the one with the peppers.  It was pretty good, just a little kick to it.  Of course, it will last quite a while since it's a very large jar lol.

Happy New Year to all.  May this year be healthy, happy and prosperous for everyone.

In Response to Re: New Years Traditions and Superstitions : Marie, I hope that you will soon be well again.  You said you just got out of the hospital again.  Was this for the same problem.  I wish you a healthy New Year and hope to hear that you are feeling "fit as a fiddle".

Thank you.  Yes, both the end of November and middle of December was because of AFib.  The second time I also had a sinus infection with a bad cough and each and every time I coughed the heart rate would go up.  Both times they had me set up to shock me, but thank God, it returned to normal rhythm by itself with the meds they were giving me.  Right now I am on new meds, including coumadin and have to go for PT tests.  I have a Factor VIII deficiency where the blood doesn't clot properly, this coupled with the coumadin, one week it went up to 6.7.  Should be beteen 2 and 3.  so they have to watch the PT.  Please remember me in your prayers.

Marie, I will be thinking and praying for you, and hope that you are feeling better soon.  I too have atrial Fib, but it is controlled very well with meds.  I also take coumadin and go in regularly for blood protine tests.  I've been doing it for about 5 years, so I'm sort of an "old Hand" at that.  I know all the people at the lab by their first names.
I was interested to hear about your Factor 8 deficiency as I am a factor 8 carrier.  My son is fine, but my grandson has factor 8 hemophillia.  He is a freshman in college in New York and takes care of administering his factor by himself.  We are very proud of how he takes care of himself.  Again take care!  I'm sure everyone on this site is thinking of you!!

Every year on New Year's Day we eat pork, saurkraut, and dumplings.  It is supposed to bring good luck and fortune.

Barbara:  Thank you for your prayers.  Glad to hear you are doing well.  So glad to hear that your grandson is doing well and taking care of himself while in college.  It is not easy with the factor VIII.  God bless him.  Will pray for him, too.

Always have black eye peas and collard greens. I know many Spanish countries have the grapes but did not have any. Had pork too and  sauerkraut too. Forgot to bang on the pots and pans to chase away evil spirits but just tell the devil and his crew I am  a child of God and he and his crew are not welcomed in my home.
