minimommy!!!!!! How the heck have you been? :D

You've been missed here in da ville!

Hellooooo Padts :D So nice to speak wif you again! I haven't been very active on the forum for quite a while (sorry). Lots goin' on. I'll be posting next week after I attend a celiac support group meeting here at my library, let peeps know about it.

I left FB when they changed their privacy. I left a message up b-4 I split but I don't think anyone saw it.

Life in Dey-trois is interesting. I've been doing a lot of volunteer work--helping out at the community food bank in my county and getting active to call attention to the economic disparity in Detroit city proper. Also, we had a tornado in my hood last week--big mess. Lots 'o clean up, no bad damage. All is well.

How are all the psills? Is Padts still in Texas? How are things across the pond w/ Nik? Anymore quakes (doesn't that make 3 psills who've had them now? :unsure: ) What's up in Fres-no with Suze? Is Judee still smokeless? (I confess, I tried but didn't succeed <_< .) How are Bev and Jess doing and all the rest of youse cwazy kidz? I know several of you started blogging--how is that going?

Hugs to all!!

I will inform my chidlins that my choice of music is nae so bad! - some kids in other countries have to listen to birds wink.gif

:lol: :lol: .. .. .And must try to dance to the trilling calls, yet.. . . . ..

Sitting listening to the birds in my yard. Some delightful chirps! Some god awful squawks! Some sound just like a neighbors telephone?

Kherrighnne, that may just actually be your neighboUr himself that you are hearing. . . . .... . .some awfully strange characters living in our midst, tryin' to mess with their neighboUrs, I hear.....

:rolleyes:

Nope, nary a word (about my place - power still out there). Plenty of pics and YouTube stuph though - lost a lot of our heritage buildings, and a lot of the brick (unreinforced) facades off CBD buildings, hence all the rubble. Looks like a war zone. No casualties.

Hey, if our patio is all broken up maybe we can repave with used brick???? :lol:

Well, the news is all good :D One very frightened kitteh who now sleeps in the bed instead of on it :rolleyes: , some broken ornaments, cracked interior plaster, and stuph flying out of cupboards (but only paperwork and stuph, not breakables, apparently) Modern earthquake proofing sure makes a difference and everything eminently fixable. All the tiles still on the roof even. Haven't got down to the nitty gritty yet, but whew, what a relief. Power back on but no water yet. Guess we will go back after all :P And I won't get some new dinnerware out of it :(

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.

Isn't there a old song somthing like this.........""tossin' and turning' ''' oye my foggy brain.

Going to hit the bed early tonight for sure. that was a odd nite.....heck we should'of chatted course i would have made less sense than i usually do............

What birds did you and Skeeter find today?

Jim went on a World Series of Birding in Cape May NJ and was on a team that birds for 24 hrs straight and though the nite and alot of birds are obtained for the list by ear. Amazes me............

You must be a good birder.

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

My dad was a consummate mimic of human and animal voices.

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...

Em had to cut your emotion cons b/c wouldn't allow me to post......sorry

yep hot in the desert......they lied to meph34r.gif

Jim would have been Mr. Lyndski. Wish i could have met your dad Em.........special man he was for sure

JOODEE!!!!!!!!

Get thee to bed woman!!

'Birding by ear' amuses me

I will inform my chidlins that my choice of music is nae so bad! - some kids in other countries have to listen to birds

Em!

Mr Lyndski!

you always make me laugh. thanks Nikki

Hellooooo Padts So nice to speak wif you again! I haven't been very active on the forum for quite a while (sorry). Lots goin' on. I'll be posting next week after I attend a celiac support group meeting here at my library, let peeps know about it.

Is Judee still smokeless? (I confess, I tried but didn't succeed .) Hugs to all!!

glad to see ya !!! post on the meeting...can't wait.

NO NO NO.........I'm not smokeless...........ph34r.gif sorry to say.........9 months and the house closing in PA made me NUTSblink.gif

LOVE YOU HAVE HUMOR....

Great news, Neroli!!! Glad to hear it!!! Is it too late to "stage" the dinnerware being tossed about in the earthquake? Any aftershocks? Perhaps the kitty/house sitter can balance all of your dinnerware on the edge of a table so that an aftershock can send it over the edge??

What birds did you and Skeeter find today?

Skeeter didn't come but she said she will next Saturday.

Well, it's fall migration time here so the Warblers are coming through. That's what the big hub-bub is about. We went out this morning as well. We've seen Redstarts, Nashvilles, Yellow-throated, Common Yellowthroat, Black-Throated greens, Magnolias, Black-and-Whites, Bay-Breasted, there was another, but I didn't see it, so it doesn't count ;)

Also saw pileated woodpeckers. It's always a good day when you see a pileated.

Lots more, but it's all about the warblers at the moment.

Thanks guys. Here's a summary story two days on if anyone is interested. Sadly, a lot of beautiful old historic buildings were lost, many of which I was intimately familiar with.

http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/4098390/Cantabrians-rudely-shaken

There have been dozens of aftershocks but none greater than 5.0, still ongoing, and the quake was on a fault whose existence was previously unknown, beneath alluvial plains, and was only 10 kms. deep. A lot of the areas that liquefied were built on fill, much like the Loma Prieta damage in San Francisco.

Be careful. They probably have a coating on them and/or are not actually glass. Was it actual Super glue brand?

Jooooodie, I've been able to get dried glue off a windowpane with a razor blade - - carefully picking at it until it came off in one piece. Might be trickier with a little area like a glasses lens, and you don't want to scratch the surface, but it sure worked on the window.. . .. ...

We've been gone about an hr and HA THERE ARE ANSWERS.

Karen.......will have to look it up as not sure it is actually super glue brand but did keep the instruction card.......must find it of course ph34r.gif

I did print the page and thanks alot of good info

Em.... bet it did work on windows.

Agree afraid it will scratch the glass and they do have that coating where the glasses turn dark in the sun.

Of course it happen on a Thursday nite........

As revealed in Karen's link, cyanoacrylate adhesive will break down if exposed to acetone. It does not matter which brand of CA is involved--the chemistry is the same. If you don't have pure acetone, nail polish remover has acetone as the active ingredient.

Most plastics are unaffected by acetone, but if the lenses are coated, the coating could be affected.

Sorry I didn't see your post

I agree....think they are plastic but coated.

All i tried before writing was the spray to clean lens when I got the glasses and of course it didn't work

Glad to know all those adhesives have the same ingredients.

Show have known our Peter would try to help out too with his scientific brain a working away on a LABOR FREE' WEEKEND ..........tongue.gif

How is your new employee working out??? I hope it's a good fit. With a great personality......and a brain.........most people can learn the job.

    • Personally, I would ask for the full Celiac panel and see what that shows.  I mean, the full Monty, not just cherry picking testing.  On the full panel, if the tTg and the EMA come back positive, that is a diagnosis without biopsy.  This is how I was diagnosed and there is absolutely no doubt I have Celiac.  I presented with classic celiac so it was a no brainer with my blood results. If you cannot stick to the diet religiously, without cheating, unless you have a biopsy picture, then I would go on to have a biopsy.  Like your daughter, I was way too sick to have one done at the time.  They would not have agreed to use sedation because I was so anemic and malnourished and that ended that!  Good luck with whatever you decide!
    • This Asian-style barbeque chicken makes a great summer treat. Barbecue chicken is a perennial summer favorite around these parts, and this recipe delivers barbecue chicken with a decidedly Asian flare. View the full article
    • And as for the green stools, you said you eat a lot of kale and spinach?  A generous, daily diet of kale and spinach will be reflected in the bathroom.  You are what you eat.  
    • I just traveled three weeks this summer in Europe (Eastern).  Do not trust that the airlines will remember to load a gluten-free meal for you.  There is a 50-50 chance that they will not (in my experience).  We packed ONLY carry on.  Still found plenty of room to stash some emergency food.  You should be able to find food within an International airport.  Chips and typical junk food clearly labeled, even fruit.  Print or load Celiac travel cards with you in all the languages you will need.  They are free.  Google it.  Found these handy (not only in restaurants) but in the markets when we could not read labels but the staff could read them and Help us to make gluten-free choices.  amazing how you can communicate without knowing the language.  A few words like "thank you" in their language go along way (so does Google Translator).  Never met anyone who was not willing to help.   I carry a collapsible cooler that I pack with food and bags of ice to eat on then plane or right at my arrival or connection.  I take extra zip lock baggies with me.  Sometimes TSA will let you through if the ice is still hard (not melting).  Some will make you toss them then I just ask a restaurant to refill my ziplock baggies after passing Security.   I also carry a doctor's letter on my phone to show I am celiac, but no one has ever asked for me to present it.   Even though I carry a "third" piece of luggage on board, I have not been stopped.  Both that and my day backpack fit under the seat.  I use this cooler as needed through our trips.  If not, it fits in my backpack.  
    • Welcome, Kierra. You're only 15 so you need to make sure your parents are 100% aware of your medical issues so that they can advocate for you. It may or may not be celiac, but the only way to find out is to start with a full celiac blood panel, then an endoscope if necessary. However, for the tests to be accurate, you must consume gluten on a daily basis.
