Have you tried the trains? I'm not that talented but they're pretty cool!!

I'm headed to Bellingham on a road trip with my mama tonight. I'll wave to ya from across the bay. My sister lived on Orcas for a few years. She was a councelor for Camp Orkila. I never got a chance to visit her, but I hear it's sooooo beautiful!! (not sure which island you're on ;) )

Can't speak for the rest of the Ruskins ( none of us can) and can't speak for meself. As none of us can. The coasts are beautifyl, but the mid earth is lacking in geografical intuition. Butt, peops living in the US, do you know that the east end will soon be flooded and the west end will slide into the sea? The only place that will be saved will be Canton, Ohio, because it has the Phootball Hall of Fame, And God loves foozeball. My evil twin, the capitolust, lives there! And, I live in the Gulag.

Both ugly. Both saved.

I hope to write the great Rushin novel

"Warts and Pheats".

By Sluziyinski Iranianv Toiletstoy.

ps. Can I use the pic of yer feets? and yor boobs for the book "Crimes and Puberty" ?

by Slutvanolski Dooserevski.

pps. No one living in Cannadda will survive the impending doom. So, slease, send me pics post haste!

Peeps, starting to feel a little under the weather. Flu has been hitting hard here. Some school closures due to high absentee rates. I'm hoping it's just my hypochondria flaring up but I shall go to bed early tonight!!!

Been very very busy and very very unsilly but I've been reading along. :D

Spent yesterday evening demo'ing somebody's basement. A friend of a friend. Serious physical labor. Felt pretty good.

This morning slept later than usual, raced off for a massage (noticing that Lyle looked a little off), came back, decided Lyle was too off to 'wait and see' Called the vet, they said bring 'em in (what does it mean that not only did I not get an 'emergency surcharge', I didn't even get charged for the office visit. D'ya think I've paid my way into gold card service?) Anyway, his jaw is infected. Got antibiotics. The point of this story being

I'm just now having coffee

Criminy

just so ya don't feel too sorry for me, I'm also having bacon

and bailey's:ph34r: :ph34r: :ph34r:

An unbusy Saturday. DD went out o'her way to bring me new patches so I could continue being a non-smoker. That surely is love! And, she's 3/4 Irish witch explains a lot of kindness. Glutened meself today being just plain STUPID. Because I'm all Irish. We just like what we like. My evil Rushin twin is way too smart to ever do that.

Jagnut - I hope you feel better.

Jessness - I hope Lyle is OK.

Petravonasilli, the 3 major food groups, according to my Way stupid iRish Antler-ego in an x-mail she sent me today, are as fallows:

1. Potatoes

2. Chocolat

3. Baileys

Of course, we, born Nort of the Ballsacks, are usually listless, but here's the list.

1. Vodka

2. Vodka

3. Vodka

It's all in the rotational rate of the moon explosions.

Psills, I made the pumpkin muffin/cupcakes posted in the recipe area . . . seriously yummy. I got an "OMGosh" out of Skeeter with an eye roll.

Also, feeling about the same as last night which means it's just a cold . . . I'm OK with that because there's a lot of flu around here and I'd just as soon not go there.

Sloozen . . . we are majorly proud of you stickin' wif the smoke-free thang . . . no go have a vodka and celebrate!!

How do you tell when it's ready to be picked. Mine is going crazy but I haven't picked any yet. Some of the older ones have lost their pale stripes and are now a solid color whereas the smaller/newer ones still have light green stripes. The stem is still green...This is my 1st garden :o I've learned SOOOO much this year-especially not to grow watermelons where people can easily steal them!!!! <_<

A solid tan color indicates they are ready. So does die-back of the vines, or the vines near the squash turning brown. Cure them by drying (warm, dry place :P ) for 10-14 days. When the skin is too hard to easily puncture with a fangernail, they are ready to store. I cooked some ahead to freeze for easy fixin'...but they are not hard to fix anyway. Been looking up recipes for soups, breads, any way I can find to use them up! Still sucks big ones about the watermelons. Rotten fieves! :angry:

Jgest....hope Lyle crocodile feels better soon! How nice ..he's got you to snuggle and commiserate with. On a heated mattress pad, no less!

GJagnet....hope your cold only has a short visit. So glad it's not the flew! Seems it's already hittin' pretty hard in lots of places. Miserable stuff!

Hey ho to ever'body else!

Well I decided to take an impromptu trip to Tammys today. Now that she is at her new house she only is 1 hr away in Hazleton. All the leaves are changing up there, very scenic trip up. Loved spending the day with my neices. We put together a Little Tikes jungle gym thing in her playroom for the winter.

Now its off to the grocery store so I can make dinner. I am starving!

In the car on the way back to Portland. Was supposed to be such a fun weekend, right before we got to my brothers house, he got a call that his mil had passed away. 2 weeks after her cancer diagnosis. Was very sudden :( My mom and I tried to make the best of the time we were together. Had us some martini's and wine and came clean about our first experiences with weed-I musta been drunk!!

Anyways, we're taking him to Tacoma on our way back to inlaws house. Hopefully the rest of the day will be a happy one!

Hope y'all had a great weekend!

Yesterday i took the frigging sign down from the house and laid on ground

she never put sold on it.

so.............don't want it up as people are still stopping to ask about the house

several friends stopped by to see us as we missed the block party

guess all he old gang i would have wanted to see wasn't there any way

we used to have such a great time.

all the older folk, new neighbors who moved in

guess the UP SCALE MEGA MANSIONS like to party different than us.

mostly little kids.

we'd have BBQ grills, tons of main dishes, deserts.........booze..............bands

all were dancing till the wee hours.

now it's 1-4 in the afternoon and all little kids

times change as i'm sure learning.

Change is good :lol: did i really say that :o

See I'm looking forward B)

no more back ward thinking or looking.

better think of cooking

sure wish i was like Susan and like to cook esp to relax.

makes me nervous to cook........HATE IT.......... :ph34r:

    • It is absolutely possible for non-Celiac gluten intolerance and/or gluten sensitivity to cause extreme symptoms. The difference between those and Celiac is that Celiac will cause actual small intestinal damage to the villi, while NCGI/gluten sensitivity can have extreme symptoms, there is no damage to the small intestine.  Other causes of bloating can be SIBO or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.  The title pretty much says it all and you need antibiotics to help combat that. Basically, your small intestine's bacteria is out of whack and you have more bad bacteria than good. I know there is a test but have no experience with this. You may want to google it and read up on it and maybe ask a specialist about it too?  This is something they should be testing for anyway to figure out what is going on.  You could also have food allergies, as opposed to an intolerance like Celiac.  You can see why this is so hard to figure out sometimes! Are you sure you are completely gluten free?  This diet has a big learning curve and cross contamination is important.  Please take a look, if you already have not, at this link.  It was written by a previous member of the forum and although it is a bit lengthy, it is what you need to know about following the diet and living gluten free successfully. She did a very good job on it!  Even tiny amounts in your diet can still cause symptoms. http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ Have you been tested for vitamin deficiencies or anemia?  These could offer a clue to see whether you are malnourished or not. Many people with celiac have both deficiencies and anemia.  Between testing for these and genetic testing to see if you carry a Celiac gene might help you to rule it out if you cannot have a scope done.  But you do remember that you need to be eating gluten for the scope? 
    • Celiac disease is a tricky rascal. Just when you think you've got it under control, it sneaks up and manifests into new and often unexpected problems. At least, this is what we have found over the last decade. From contacts with others who have Celiac disease, we know we're not alone. I'm in my early thirties and find that sometimes my body acts more like that of an old man's. View the full article
    • Thank you, Gemini.   Is it possible for non-celiac gluten sensitivity or intolerance to have this severe symptoms?
      I'm on gluten free diet two weeks now and no change... What are other causes of these symptoms beside food?
    • I am trying to decipher the test and it looks to me like the Total IgA is fine.  Your number appears to be in the middle of the reference range, which would be sufficient IgA for testing.  I am in America so your country's testing is a bit different from here....I really hope I got that right!  If you have severe enough symptoms of a GI problem, some doctors here would move onto a biopsy even with negative blood results.  I think if you cannot get a full Celiac panel done, then a scope with biopsy should come next. Severe bloating has a cause and they need to rule out a food problem. There can be other causes but food is usually a big trigger. Yes, keep us updated!  We are here to help.
    • A rapidly expanding knowledge of the celiac disease regulatory pathway could soon lead to new breakthroughs. View the full article
