I was just bustin' Chris' chops! Had to give him some grief over SOMETHING -- the guy is freaking amazing!!
Jen e-mailed the picture of us . . . as you can tell, I DON'T like having my picture taken, but I WILL place it in my avatar . . . . TEMPORARILY. The other girl in the picture is Brooke, my son's girlfriend . . . . . . Both she and Jen's pictures are good. Mine looks pretty bad . . . . .
Okay, the file is too big, so I'm going to have to go in and re-size it . . . . . I'm NOT good at it, so it may take some time . . . again CUT ME SOME SLACK!!!!!!!!!
It's done . . . . are you happy now???????
Courage does not always roar. Sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of the day that says, "I'll try tomorrow".

The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.
The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011. We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again. At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine. The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes. It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on. If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.
See how right I am that Lynne is such a beutiful woman. And such a glorious smile. Excuse me Lynne, but is Brooke in grade school? Just kidding, as I know how old she is. But, she does look young as do all of you.
THANK GOODNESS, we now have a real picture of Lynne.

Hey, Lynne, I love it! What are you talking about, saying that the girls look good, but you don't? You look beautiful to me! Don't take the picture down again, I hope you'll leave it for a long time, it's awfully nice.
