Yes, a superb pic of past and present c.commers! Ptaoughmmuss's feet do, indeed, look rather gun-boatish... . . . . 'Tis a good thing, for he is, as I recall, very tall as well -- like, six-five er somethin'.. . . . ..?.....At this height one must need a lengthy stabilizing base.... :rolleyes:

When I win the lottery I'm going to visit all me psillies! ;)

OR we need to all meet for a weekend somewhere that's an approximate geographic midpoint. Hmm....London, NZ, throughout the States, Eastern Canada . ......POeter, where would that be?

Don't pick Kansas! I know it's in the middle of the US but I want to go somewhere fun! Bev just got back from Belize & it looked great! Let's go there!

My oldest had those shoes on Ptaum's feet. They made his size 12s look larger. They were huge shoes.

Nooo!! Progressive!!!! We go to everyone's house, picking up each person on the way, circling all the way back around dropping off each person. so Russel and I go to Cali, pick up Judy and Tom and Suze, we go to Kansas, pick up the midwesterners, we all go to Canada, pick up Em and Peter, head down the coast, etc ending up in NZ. Then y'all come back to WA, drop off the northwesterners.... and so on and so forth.

Could we get a tricked out bus, like a rock star? With all our various diet issues, it would be good to have the ability to cook. Perhaps, Nik can come over to No. America this year for a tour. Next year we can tour over there?

Remember the thread about completely gluten-free restauraunts? We should hit all of them!

There actually is stable ground in Christchurch? :unsure:

Well, not eggsactly stable stable.. Doesn't mean that it doesn't occasionally move around a bit. Just means that there are no gaping wide cracks in it, and no liquefaction mud volcanoes and such :P and no newly formed ponds or hills.

Yessirreebob, we are all just finding out the insurance ramifications of mother nature's hissy fits. We don't have to use our imaginations any more :ph34r: Our EQC (govt. earthquake insurance) premiums have just doubled throughout the country (first hundred thou of damage) and all other premiums are going up gastronomically :P (as in stomach churning) as they become due. The shoe will fall on us in May. Insurance is THE MAJOR impediment to everything right now - the rebuild effort, construction permits, government buyouts on homes in disestablished 'burbs, etc. No one will move until they can get insurance and the insurance companies themselves are struggling to get reinsurance so they can offer insurance :rolleyes: and are delaying payments as long as humanly or inhumanely possible :(

:unsure:

:unsure:

:huh:

And yet we just flew in over the city a couple of days ago and the city looked luverly :) It was one year ago on the 22nd that everything fell apart :o

Thanks GeeEFF! I think we are good for this year, but I will pass this to the Robotics coach who also teaches digital electronics. Might be a good time to stock up on all those odd little connectors.

It was a nice visit with Mouse, Chris and Tom. He does have big feet, but never noticed the thumbs. It was great fun to meet up. We should do more of that. ;)

It really was great Lisa. How's your brother been btw?

Hehe "never noticed the thumbs"?!! That pic was taken just moments after your intently quantifying gaze left my hand, having been placed on your shoulder just a second before!

Pfffft never noticed.

:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes: Well, I think our meeting pre-dated a lot of things, one included the GREAT THUMB DEBATE. But....perhaps it did not preclude my glimpse at your "large" hands tightly wrapped around... that coffee cup. :P:D

Brother is still in Shanghai, soon to return stateside. How's life in CA?

Ouch . ...Kairreign trying to allhatnocattle me eh? [forehead smacking not producing right phrase]

They are distinctive but it would've'adto've been 5 yrs ago. Avia stopped making bball shoes in '07. It was sad. I liked them enough I tallied up 9 Big5Sports stores in 3 states to stock up. Still have new all-blacks & all-whites.

Hey shroomie maybe we've both been at the one in Sparks ....on 2nd thought u may never have a reason to go to Sparks anyway - if you're heading to the city what's Sparks got that Reno doesn't? (besides best discount brandname sports shoes store of course ;) )

Notsomuch. ... . ...I was more inspired by the countless '55 Chevys.. . . B) ....man, they were everywhere..... . .. pristine, whizzing by, sounding their great horns....like stepping back in time. In all the music surrounding us, as well -- from Nat King Cole to John Lennon...... .and everything encompassed in a curling haze of maraca beat and fine cigar smoke... . . ..yup, it all begs to be recorded. Hemingway knew this, and I do hope to return there someday to get things down on canvas as he did on notepaper, napkins, envelopes, chequebooks.. . .. . ..:)

Hello Dearest psillies,

Boy have I ever missed you! It's nice to be coming back from the almost dead (don't mean to sound over dramatic). As I mentioned I lost almost two weeks of my life. Superman was amazing. Right now he's "the boss of me" and I'm gladly letting him. I still have memory loss, tremors, and depression (though I feel blessed to have super Rob and all my friends - psillies and those fro home). I have a new therapist who also is licensed to adjust and give out prescriptions. She also works with my neurologist.My new goal is to get well enough to make a trip to NJ in July.

My brother flew up to see me Thursday through Saturday and it meant a lot. On Friday night we took Tony and 4 of his friends to celebrate Tony's 20th BD. We we to Fire and Ice (a great restaurant for us gluten-free'ers). The kids think we're the cool parents so they let rip. At the restaurant one of the kids suggested two games - one was most memorable thing about Tony. Rob's was watching him come out of me. My brother's was watching Tony pee in Rob's face. Mine was him vomiting green eggs & ham on Dr. Seuss day. I'm forgetting what most of the kids said. I think a few were about his my little pony collection. He was very scruffy with a long beard and hair (just the type I was attracted to in college). He has to shave it all off and get a good haircut before he can start working for the public defender. He already started working at Providence Hospital. I'm very proud of him.

Time to hit the sack. Again, I've missed you more than I can say.

Love & Hugswub.gifwub.gifwub.gif

Loey

All right, I want to know which one of you northern psilly peeps stole our southern summer :ph34r: Here we are, into our second day of autumn already and I have barely got out of my sweats for more than a couple of days. And the good folks of Oz are sending us a "storm bomb" for tomorrow with winds and rain, which is all I got on my mini-vacation to Wellington last week too. I know it wasn't you pholks who had all the psnaough, or even the tornadoes, but SOMEBODY DONE IT!!! You had best turn on a northern summer for me.:rolleyes:

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
