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.

Jyes' bacon, coffee, and bailey's . . . sounds good to me. (Hope Liol starts "looking on" real soon!)

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.

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

    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back.
