I is still in Nevada, Em. Still don't know much except apparently no casualties or major injuries, lots of cracked bridges and motorway onramps, broken water and sewer lines, all hospitals operational, still no power so no word from my housesitter. Although I did find this in the newspaper about our 'local':

"Historic Godley House has suffered very serious damage. Owner Richard Hawes said he thought he was going to die as he was on the second floor of the 130-year-old homestead and when it "wobbled like a jelly''. The building now has cracks from the foundation upwards with many windows out and a large hole in a wall."

Of course it would have no earthquake proofing, but is about a mile from us at most, so that means it was definitely "felt" in Diamond Harbour :blink:

I just read that Diamond Harbour is cut off by a 50 metre slip on the road; fortunately, we have a ferry service across to Lyttelton :D

Thanks. Looks like I might have some shopping to do when I get home: :P (from the Christchurch Press)

"Press arts editor Christopher Moore said he was thrown out of bed by the shake. Moore, who lives in Diamond Harbour, said every piece of crockery was broken and book thrown to the floor. A heavy, carved Victorian wall clock, had swung about a foot in each direction and a heavy, enamel Kent fire was ejected half way across the bedroom floor. Moore said it felt "much worse'' than the Inangahua earthquake of 1968 - also a magnitude 7.1. " It was savage, terrifying, horrible."

Of course, a lot of the homes in Diamond Harbour were formerly what are known as baches or cribs (poorly constructed holiday shacks which have been modernized and added on to. I don't know where Christopher lives :huh:

(It would take a bit to move our Tulikivi stove, though - that sucker weighs about two tonnes :rolleyes: )

I leave to hang banners at the footbal stadium, tailgate and watch J's high school game and look what happens! A big honking earthquake at Shroomie's other house! I hope the house sitter is OK cause that's gonna be one angry Kitty.

Natural disasters are befalling Psillys. Hurricanes, wild fires & earthquakes. Us Midwest Psillys better keep a sharp eye out for tornados ( that is one of the main ones we are missing). :huh:

Well you Mid western folks better keep your eyes peeled to the sky cause looks like those tornados are all that's missing for sure.

Well, I did notice the lateness(earliness) of the hour . . . you were up 4:45 my time. I shoulda got outta bed and chatted with you, Judee as I was awake at that time . . . just a tossin' anda turnin' . . . and tossin' . . . and turnin'

Headed out to go birding this morning!!! Trying to get Skeeter to join me on one of these treks but she keeps declining. She'd be really good at it. She's forced to listen along in the car when I'm playing my "Birding by Ear" c.d.'s (helps with the identification, you know). I would hazard that she's better at it than I am. Chidlins don't have all the tatt cluttering up their minds like mental grocery lists, appts, stuff I need to gossip about, and errands to run.

:huh:

:blink:

Now DIS is HOT. That is sub-Saharan, er sumfin'. . . .. ...... .watch it out there, Joooodie!

She's forced to listen along in the car when I'm playing my "Birding by Ear" c.d.'s (helps with the identification, you know).

This sounds like quite a collection of C/Ds, Jyaghnutt. .. . . . .... . it would be excellent to put one of them on our living room player when DD has five of her girlfriends over, lolling about on various pieces of furniture. "Hey, c'mon, guys - - let's try to dance to this!"

Their faces:

:huh: :huh: <_<:mellow::unsure::o

The last face is Sophie's, her classic look of brazen, embarrassed horror. . . . . .. ...

My dad was a consummate mimic of human and animal voices. He perfected the calls and whistles of several birds, and created one that sounded like it may have come from a strange, extinct parrot or hawk. Through the years he slowly drove our neighboUrs behind us out of their minds, as he would stand at the back fence and make this quiet, trilling whistle. We'd hear old Mr. Lyndski scrambling out his back door.... ."Margaret! There it is! Get the tape recorder! We need to call the news channel, send somebody out there!"

Dad would wait a day or two, then hide out there and whistle again, somehow throwing his voice up to the huge elm that bordered our properties. I would see from my upstairs bedroom window a flurry of activity as Mrs. Lyndski rushed about for the big binoculors, Mr. Lyndski throwing back curtains, yelling excitedly. . .. ... . ....

I have often wondered if my dad's bizarre, yet somehow very credible whistle made it onto any birding soundtracks. Jyaghnutt, if there is a crazy, prehistoric call on that C/D that is stumping you birding identifiers, we may know from where it came... . ... ..particularly if there is follow-up commentary from a Mr. Lyndski...

    • 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.
