I just knew you'd be okay.

 

When I had my brain MRI for all the neuro symptoms,
and it was negative, I said to Jack tearfully "well, they looked at my brain, but they didn't find anything in there!!!".


which prompted laughter, of course. :D

 

Please, have a daiquiri for me, too! No, 2!!! 

 

SO happy for you, hon! xxoo

Thanks guys!

 

Last night Me and Bob, from the Red Mill, are getting things together to make brownies.  I'm gonna add walnuts and the walnuts I have are whole nuts.  So I hollar out to hubs in the garage, "how do I make chopped walnuts",  he pops his head up and starts laughing at me and says "grab a clever and have at it".  Now I'm thinking, did I really not know that?  In my defense, I thought some kind of kitchen appliance would chop nuts.  

 

I'm thinking of starting a community in Love2Travel's back yard for the "Cooking Challenged".  I know there are some of you out there who have never chopped nuts.  Anyone with me?

It sounds like you have been carried well!  I hope you will soon feel well strong, and recovered from gluten.

 

I am celebrating by making my first post for days.  My computer didn't let me post for at least 3 days.  I also had trouble reading the site.

Argh....there's nothing like renegade nutz. Nutz that go rogue. Misbehavin' nutz.

 

I ,too use the mini chopper.

 

but this whole discussion has prompted a memory of a funny joke.

 

Shall I tell it?

This works better as a visual, but here goes:

 

Little boy, dressed head to toe in a cowboy outfit goes into an ice cream shop and stares at the woman behind the counter.

She says: "well, aren't you adorable!" 

Kid pulls his little toy guns out of the holster, points them at her  and scowls,  "No, I'm not! I'm a cowboy and I'm tough, so don't make me mad!!" 

She plays along, saying: "Okay, cowboy, what'll it be?"

Kid curls his lip , points the guns again at her and says gruffly: "Gimme a sundae and make it quick!"

She can't help but smile at his tough guy routine, but asks; "would you like vanilla or chocolate ice cream ?"

Kid, becoming irritated snarls: "Chocolate and make it quick!"

She: "pineapple or hot fudge?"

Kid: "Hot fudge and make it snappy, yer makin me mad, lady"

She asks: "and do want marshmallow or whipped cream."

Kid, face turning red and waving the guns in her face yells "yer really pressing it....whipped cream! hurry it up!!"

She can't help herself: : "and do want your nuts crushed?"

 

and the Kid says>>>>>>>>>

 

 

Guess what the last line was????

 

Kid says:

Ohhhhhh...that's a good one Irish.  I was picturing Dennis The Menace as the kid and Zena, Warrior Princess as the Server.  She could do a number with those nuts.

it's.......

 

Lady: "You want your nuts crushed?"

 

Kid: "You want your boobies blown off?"

 

 

 

Probably crossed the line there, :ph34r:  but it is Colleen's celebratory thread and she likes to laugh, so I'm leaving it there. :lol:

 

for a few minutes......until we probably need to  "hide it".

    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I saw this the other day too & like Karen, wondered at the last line of the article. The article had me once again thinking about my deceased brother who was dx'd paranoid schizophrenic in his late 20's. He also had alternating constipation/diarrhea  but "they" always blamed it on his meds for the schizophrenia. We, his family, knew he had those issues prior to him being prescribed the meds but there is no telling the medical community something when you're talking about a mental patient.  Okay, I know the guy is selling something but the research noted in the article is valid: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/06/22/gluten-grains-cause-schizophrenia.aspx We knew about this back in the 50's & going forward. They even coined the term for it "bread madness". Why have we not recognized this in the psychology/mental health/institutions community for all these many years? Why does it seem to have been just shoved under the rug like some dirty little secret?  Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      My first thought was how many people that have been labeled as mentally ill or psychotic actually have Celiac Disease and never get diagnosed?  Their whole lives spent battling these conditions, being flooded with various meds and no one looks at their diet or does other testing!  It really is tragic.  I always wondered whether Patty Duke was an un-diagnosed Celiac.  She was finally diagnosed with bi-polar and ended up dying of a perforated intestine, at the young age of 69.  Ya gotta wonder........
    • Desperately Seeking DISARONNO!
      I think the company knows what the ingredients are better than us.  If you mean Amaretto, I have had it.  
    • Gluten free before biopsy???
      My doctor required me to continue eating gluten before the endoscopy for biopsy. She did say I could let up "a little" to ease some of the terrible pain I was having, but wanted me to eat gluten-containing foods every day until the biopsy. As it turned out, they were able to get me in quickly, so it was really only a few days for me. Both bloodwork and biopsy confirmed the diagnosis and now I am happily gluten-free! It has been a challenge, but having a gluten-free kitchen, checking labels on foods and being super-careful when going out has worked wonders. I am not 100% recovered yet, but getting energy back a bit at a time as my nutrition status improves. We don't eat out much - mostly at vegan places that declare they are gluten-free (although I still eat chicken, eggs, milk, and beef sometimes at home). One day, I'll go somewhere else - but not without checking first! Best of luck to you. I think it important to always double-check with the doctor when there are any questions at all. My doctor welcomes questions and I hope yours will too.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      Thanks for posting I was just looking at this a short time ago. Something I found interesting was the last line of the article- " The psychosis that the woman experienced was an extreme condition and very unique, Fasano said. " While not common I am not sure that it is that unique.  There is a fair amount of research that has been done on the effects of gluten on the brains and nervous systems of celiacs.  Doing a search with the words neurological and celiac at places like Lancet, PubMed and the NIH can bring up some really interesting studies. Thankfully this impact is slowly becoming more common knowledge in the medical circles. Many of us have experienced in our families or first hand the way that the antibodies can impact our mood and thinking. It does seem miraculous when the clouds finally lift. I wish more doctors would test for celiac before pulling out the prescription pad, especially with kids.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
