In Honor of Terry Pratchett, Let’s See your Most Fantastical Post!
Today’s corn allergy conversation has been preempted by the passing of British author, Terry Pratchett. He passed away Thursday, March 12, 2015 after a long battle with early onset Alzheimers. For those of you that have followed this blog for a while, you know I’ve been a big fan for almost all my adult life (When you do the math on that one, please be kind!). I’ve even created a recipe for Dwarf Bread based on his Diskworld novels.
Thursday was the second time in my life, I’ve cried over the death of someone I’ve never met. The first time was when Douglas Adams (of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy fame) died. What consoled me then was that at least Terry Pratchett would still be writing books.
I’m inconsolable now. No one can replace his dry wit and rampant use of footnotes*! He used a medieval fantasy setting to skewer modern society much the same way the court jester got away with telling the king the truth when no one else could.
So in honor of Terry Pratchett, today I’d like to suggest that you share your most fantastical recipes, crafts and tips. The more wild and unbelievable, the better! As long as they’re corn-free, they’re eligible. We’ll get back to our featured post next week.
Meanwhile, try a Diskworld novel, if you haven’t already. They’re fabulous!
May you live in interesting times!

Increasing Corn Allergy Awareness
I’m so pleased that everyone is enjoying the corn-free link party. One of my long-term goals is to raise awareness of corn allergies until it is recognized as a top allergen and labeling is required. It’s my personal opinion that corn allergies in the United States are very under-diagnosed. It’s in just about everything so it’s hard to eliminate and prove that corn is the cause of the allergy symptoms.
I think this party can help raise the awareness with bloggers. So I encourage you to spread the word and thank you for linking up today!
I appreciate all your comments. I’m always so pleased to find out that I’m providing valuable information to you. A couple of people have told me that my spam blockers have given them problems. I’m so sorry that spammers are ruining it for us all. I just don’t have time to fish out the real comments from the spam and hold down a full-time job.
