[BlueDanube] Lemon-Raspberry Muffins

 

1119969
Lemon-Raspberry Muffins
By Marie Simmons, EatingWell
The secret to the sparkling flavor of these delicately crumbed muffins is the strips of lemon zest finely ground into the sugar. Enjoy the muffins warm right from the oven.
Makes 1 dozen muffins.
Active Time: 15 minutes/Total Time: 40 minutes
 
1 lemon
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup nonfat buttermilk (see tip)
1/3 cup canola oil
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup white whole-wheat flour or whole-wheat pastry flour (see shopping tip)
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen (not thawed) raspberries
 
Preheat oven to 400 F.
Coat 12 large (1/2-cup) muffin cups with cooking spray or line with paper liners.
Use a vegetable peeler to remove the zest from the lemon in long strips. Combine the zest and sugar in a food processor; pulse until the zest is very finely chopped into the sugar. Add buttermilk, oil, egg and vanilla and pulse until blended.
Combine whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Add the buttermilk mixture and fold until almost blended. Gently fold in raspberries. Divide the batter among the muffin cups.
Bake the muffins until the edges and tops are golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack. Serve warm.
    To Make Ahead:
Wrap each in plastic and freeze in a freezer bag for up to 1 month. To reheat, remove plastic, wrap muffin in a paper towel and microwave on High for 30 to 60 seconds.
    Recipe Tips
--No buttermilk? Mix 1 tablespoon lemon juice into 1 cup milk.
--Shopping tip: White whole-wheat flour, made from a special variety of white wheat, is light in color and flavor but has the same nutritional properties as regular whole wheat. Whole-wheat pastry flour can be used as a substitute here. Both can be found in the natural-foods section of the supermarket or online from King Arthur Flour, bakerscatalogue.com.
    Recipe Nutrition:
Per serving: 185 calories; 7 g fat (1 g sat, 4 g mono); 18 mg cholesterol; 27 g carbohydrate; 8 g added sugars; 4 g protein; 2 g fiber; 245 mg sodium; 47 mg potassium.

[BlueDanube] Native American Symbolism Of Feathers (Sioux & Hopi)

 

Native American Symbolism Of Feathers (Sioux Hopi)
Feathers-300x241
Feathers
There are hundreds of Native American tribes who have evolved and developed their beliefs and rituals over the span of hundreds of years. This being the case, it is difficult to pin point
one single, specific meaning of feathers to Native Americans.
 
However, I have read legends in which the Hopi used turkey feathers in various symbolic placements and rituals. The number of turkey feathers used is four. The turkey is a symbol of the wildness of the Earth, and the number four represents the four winds. Together, this is a symbolic message that the Earth is a wildnerness that man can never control.
 
I also know that the Sioux used feathers in headdresses (reserved for the higher-minded or wiser souls, tribe noblemen, soothsayers, etc). Twenty eight feathers were used in Sioux crowning rituals. Twenty eight is sacred to the Sioux to represent the life of the Moon breathes within a span of twenty eight days. There are also twenty eight ribs within the cage of the buffalo, which was/is sacred to this tribe.
 
Also among the Sioux, the Eagle (specifically, the Golden Eagle) was a sacred symbol, and twelve of her feathers were used in ritual, ceremonial events to signify the number of months in the year as well as the twelve.

Re: [AquaticLife] RE: Re: Urgent Help: Rosy Barb

 

Hi Noura,
 
One very unnerving "stunt" that Clown Loaches are famous for displaying is that they will occasionally lay down on their sides, looking for all the world like they're stone dead.  May I assume that you've seen this behavior by now, and if so, what did you think of it at that time?  If you haven't yet seen this in your Clown Loach, then be prepared for it and don't panic when you do.  They're notorious for this, to most hobbyists maintaining these fish for any good length of time. 
 
Two years isn't to bad of a time period for keeping a Betta.  Their average life span has been said to be about 2 1/2 years for as far back as I can remember-- and I don't want to admit how long that is to protect how old I am (LOL).  There are always a few that will live much longer, just as there will be in most other species, but lately many of the Bettas here in the States don't even live as long as this.  I don't really know why except to say that the average mass-produced Bettas in the shops here rarely make it past a year.  Perhaps it's just a matter of inbreeding as those Bettas bought directly from prominent Betta breeders hold up much longer.  
 
Ray

Hi John,

Silver's color was off during his illness. He was pink when healthy. The photo's colors are even paler as it was taken by my tablet (not the best camera). In reality, there was still a hint of pink on his sides.

On the other hand, Smoky always says "feed me"! lol

If you noticed some irregular flow in the lines in his "side fins" (The closeup snap), that's how short these fins were when he was injured and sick. Half of his tail has gone. I think it took about a year for him to grow everything to full length. He was such a fighter!

Clown loaches are one of the most interesting fish I kept. I also loved Betas. But never had much success keeping them alive for longer than a year or two.

I had a fish that turned its head sideways, left and right, examining the gravel. I can't remember what kind of fish it was. I only remember how it took my breath away when it did that head tilting!

Hi Noura,

  Those Clown Loaches are a riot! Very interesting fish to watch so I know what I'll be getting if I ever decide to set up a tropical tank. I wondered if Smoky was tame because he seems to be saying "feed me" on that close up shot where he's posing for the camera. Nice to see what Silver looked like-did he change colour or was he always silver? I guess most fish have the genetics to change colour over time-I'm only used to seeing Goldfish & Koi do this.

Hi John,

The Angelfish is not nocturnal, I turned the lights on to take these pics and he remained asleep for 2 more minutes! I only realized it because he didn't move to me lol

When I tapped on the glass gently, he woke up! I don't know how tame fish can be (other than Goldfish), but almost all of them will take food from my finger at the surface, they would happily eat my finger as well if they could! Lol

Yes the Clown Loach is a very funny fish! He has takes weirdest positions! They would gather behind rocks like a fish pile when there were several young ones.

He can stand upside down in a corner, empties his caves from small shells that somehow got in, makes clicking sounds when eating flakes or lettuce, and yes.. he digs the gravel and moves it around. I noticed he's digging a long hole inside the cave, maybe to accommodate his growing height. I never imagined he will get this big when I made those caves!

He's HUGE… almost as long as Smoky "excluding the tail", but I know he could get much bigger. (He or she, I don't know)

I used to exchange my growing fish for smaller ones at the petshop before, but in these tough circumstances I haven't changed anything. Haven't replaced dead fish, and also I didn't want to take the big ones to the shop, because I knew there's a very slim chance for them to be properly taken care of in another home.

So, we're sticking together for the time being J

There are only 3 fish in the 20 G.

Hi Noura,

  It took under 10 minutes to approve your photos, they were already approved when I looked-someone is on the ball! Thanks for replying so fast-Smoky is a great looking fish, are they nocturnal? I don't know a lot about Angels, are they tame & can they get to feed from your hand?

I remember several years before I got fish seeing a tropical community tank in an old folks home & I was very taken with one particular fish in that tank which I now know to be a Clown Loach. I loved the way it stood on it's front fins like it was paying attention to something. This particular fish would dig a hole in the gravel & build all the stones up in a pile next to the hole-does your do that?

Here's my big boy Smoky.. He's a monster J

I wanted to take pics of the Clown Loach, but they were sleeping. He/she likes to hide in those caves, especially at night, like now.

(It could take a while before the new photos are approved)

Hi Noura,

  I just looked at Smoky as a baby-you must be very proud of him he's a great looking fish. I'd be interested to see what he looks like now if you can post some pictures anytime.

Thanks for your kind words, Ray. And for all your, and John's help.

Exactly, he was sitting upright just before the water change, and breathing at an almost normal rate. And went lying on his side immediately after it.

I've been turning this in my head all day… I know I did everything I could, but I really had high hopes for him after his condition stabilized.

Your thoughts about the extreme weakness made me think that maybe the water movement while I was adding the new water have exhausted him completely, and beyond recovery. I wasn't pouring water directly and heavily, I have put a 500 ml cup on the tank's bottom and poured the new water in it so that water spilled from all its edges like a round fountain. Still, I noticed there were some currents that dragged Silver around a little in the tiny tank.

I examined the tank very carefully today before changing water, and there were no droppings at all. It could well be that he hasn't eaten in a week. Sigh…

Last time I had to medicate a fish so intensely was with a smoky Anglefish, about 3 or 4 years ago. The hospital tank was barely deep enough for his rotten fins length. He had a really bad case of fin rot and wounds due to fighting for 5 minutes with the black Angelfish. His fins almost reached the flesh in places where they were torn. I had to medicate him for 8 weeks, with extensive PWCs "He was 3" long". But he came around beautifully. I still have him now in the 20 G with a small Pleco and one survivor Clown Loach. Smoky is now more than 25 cm tall!

We don't get to win the fight everytime.. eh..

Now I have to tell my mom L.

Her tank is empty now. Anything to do to disinfect it before she gets any new fish?

Thanks for your valuable help though this!

Hi Noura.

I'm so sorry to hear that this fish didn't make it, especially after all the effort you went through in trying to help him.  I read both you messages, but thought I'd reply to this one first.  I have no specific reason why he died, but I extremely doubt it was because you prepared the Erythromycin solution last night and stored it in there fridge.  The worst thing they could have happened to the medication would have been that it lost some of its effectiveness, but that wouldn't have adversely affect him like this. 

Don't blame yourself if that's what you think, as the only thing that an inadequately strong medication would do would be to allow the disease to advance slightly.  That would only mean that the disease would take a bit longer to completely cure.  Of course, that could (but not necessarily) also allow for a mutation of the disease to develop, making it harder to cure the disease but that's not going to happen in a matter of hours. 

While I wasn't there to see exactly how well (or how poorly) he was doing just before the PWC, and only know that he was sitting upright on the bottom of the tank -- since you said he was lying on the bottom of the tank after this last PWC (a marked difference) -- In my estimation, his constantly weakening state from not eating is what finally did him in.  I've seen enough fish that have gone on a temporary hunger strike and were no longer able to swim because of their weakened condition, only to have never been able to pull out of this condition and die despite regaining their appetite and eating well again. 

Many just don't make it and while Carp (which would include Barbs) may do this on occasion and regain their abilities, the smaller the fish is the less likely it's system is able to cope with such malnutrition.  One major reason why I was hoping he'd start eating.  I also don't believe it was the disease itself that overwhelmed him as you did everything you could to combat it and I doubt he was battling it at all anymore.  Still, even if a fish is completely cured, the medications need to be continued for the full duration of the treatment to prevent a relapse, and you were continuing his treatment at this time.  I applaude your efforts and all the care you've shown!      

Best regards,

Ray

He's gone L

Unbelievable…

I'm sure it has to do with the last PWC about 3 hours ago. But I can't think of the direct reason, I did everything exactly the same way as before.

The only difference is that I prepared the Erythormycin solution last night and kept it in the fridge. It can't be this.

Hi Ray,

The Barb went lying on his side right after the last PWC 2 hours ago. And he's still like that.

Test results are the same as last time.

I matched the temperature for the added water and added the 3 medications, so not sure what's wrong. He seemed okay before the change L
