Just noticing - - In my av you canna see the large, blacked-in hole in my smile that I painted over my teeth. Will's is quite visible.....I must have had it on the side turned slightly away. It was HUGE, and SOOOOOO trailer-parky.

I don't look nearly as phunny there as I was, truly.

Holy Smores!!!! WIH is everybody!!????!!

Took down another tree yesterday. We thought we would be able to save this tree but after the mass deforestation project of a month or so ago, we found out just how bad it really looked. Have gone out and priced some new trees . . . some of which will already be a decent size and can I just say . . . YIKES!!!

Patti . . . have you gone and checked out the hole in the ground progress on your house?

Still sleepy from little sleep two nights ago. Lab party tonight. yay. A bunch of people, some of whom dislike other factions, some of whom have had their hours cut because of no money, some of whom have cut their hours 'cause it's no fun to be at work......should be a rockin' time.

I meant to tell you that I'm glad the JoDog's bloods tests were negative. Hopefully, that's the end of it!

Hey, Jess . . . might I suggest that you get really trashed and tell everybody what you think of them . . . will make for a lovely work environment come Monday . . . :P . . . of course, they might not be offended when you tell them their acting like a bunch of ridiviculs civkebs. :lol: How did the callbacks go?

Good morning everyone :)

A cold, rainy A.M. here in Clinton Township. It's been nice not to have to run the air conditioning.

Hey Emily and Peter--

Scott may have to go to Ontario next month on business and I was thinking I might go with him. Any advice on places to stay, things to do? He would have to validate new vehicles at the Brampton plant--how for is that from either of you?

That's what got me in to trouble in the first place :ph34r:

Callbacks were fun. Still waiting to hear if I'm in. Sorta have mixed feelings. Being there reminded me of just how much time is involved in doing a show. But it's also fun. :blink:

I am a lot closer to Brampton than Emily, but I'm not really familiar with the area. It is on the NW corner of the city of Toronto, but I haven't been there is ages. It is close enough that you could look at Toronto for accommodations and activities.

Rayechull! Youse is comin' up north? Damn, Brampton is pretty far from here, but only about a half-hour drive from downtown Toronto. There is LOTS to do and see in T.O. - - it is a phab city! You should definitely accompany Scott. You could meet POeter at the terrific restaurant that serves delicious gluten-free pizza.

I WANNA COME!! :angry:

:rolleyes:

They posted the travel schedule at his work yesterday but haven't assigned the trips, which are to be divided amongst Scott and his co-workers. The validation trips this summer are to Ontario, Toledo, Windsor, and I think Austria and/or Italy. I said I'm up for Ontario and Italy as a tag-along.

I'd love to meet up with you, Peter. We could have lunch while Scott's at work, or all meet for dinner one evening. Emily, maybe we could all drive to a half-way meeting point? I'd absolutely HATE to get so close and not meet you

:(

Anyway, I'll let you know for sure as soon we know, but it looks like it will be next month (in 3-4 weeks maybe).

Oh, how exciting! A possible meeting of sillies international :P

So far all we know is that there is a prelim. date of about August 3-5 for the trip, BUT, noone has been asssigned to it yet. Scott can request it as his trip, but the actual date is based on first run of production on vehicles out of the plant in Brampton--so the date depends entirely upon that. We will know more in a couple of weeks.

Peter and Em, what are your plans in that time frame?

Any one else game (hint-hint)? We'll drive ;)

So halfway between Toronto and Seattle appears to be Pierre, S Dakota. I really like you Mims, but maybe not enough to drive through Montana and South Dakota during the hottest part of the year...

Morning Sillies-

The start of a long weekend!

Still cool for summer- I dont think us Northern SIllies are really getting a fair summer season- we spend the rest of the 9 months shivering....

John and I are hoping to head to the beach later today until tomorrow. We are not staying at the beach- we are thinking of Atlantic City.

Have a great holiday weekend!!!!

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
