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

Just a quick pop-in for KarenG. Hi Crayon, this electronics site has lots of neato stuff the robotics club might like. They are having a sale on some items per their recent newsletter. I don't remember if I told you about this site b4 or not. Meh, probably, but who knows?

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:

Us folks with the tornados have been having a lovely, warm winter.....hence the tornados. It was 70 F today here in KC. Perhaps you should have wintered in Kansas?

    • I think the idea of grinding your own at home stems from the thought that flavored coffees might be ground on the same machines.  The grinders in the grocery are not cleaned between uses.  However, I have not found a flavored coffee bean that had gluten, so it's probably not a real concern.  For coffee that comes from a factory ground, I wouldn't worry at all.   Machines would be cleaned between flavors and nothing but coffee could be made on the machines or even in the same building ( everything made would taste/ smell like coffee). if you still have doubts - I went to the International Celiac Disease Symposium a few years back.  This is held every few years in different countries for medical professionals that study and treat Celiac.  They present research, etc.  All food served was gluten-free.  We drank a lot of plain, already ground, coffee!  A lot!   Coffee is not on any lists as a gluten containing food.  Talking legitimate organizations - not some blogger or pseudo- science website.   After all this, if you still doubt that coffee is gluten free...... Then don't drink it!  It leaves more for me!    
    • To answer some of your questions.... Non celiac gluten sensitivity does not cause any damage to the small intestine so that is not the source of the "little holes or bumps".  You need to get her records including the report of the endoscopy to see exactly what it says as well as the pathology report of the biopsies. You should always get medical records anyway & keep a copy for yourself. How many biopsies did he take? There should be a minimum of 4, ideally 6. The small intestine is very vast even in a small child. An adults is the size of a tennis court! That's a whole lot of territory so biopsies can miss damage especially when enough of them are not taken! She has 2 positives on the serum panel. This crap about "weak" positives should be thrown out of the nomenclature! A positive is a positive, weak or not! Her DgP IGG is way over the range and extremely telling. As far as my knowledge goes, there is nothing else that causes a positive DgP IGG other than celiac disease. False positives are really rare and to have 2 false positives would be astronomically rare! You are right & smart that she really does need an official diagnosis! IMHO, keep her on gluten for right now. Get a second opinion pronto & I believe you'll be able to get her a dx based on the 4 out of 5 rule if nothing else. I wouldn't think it's going to take more than a month to get to see another doc for a second opinion. Then you can take her off gluten. Kids heal up really fast, way faster than us old geezers! I'm sure as others  wake up & get on their computers they will be along to voice their knowledge. I am in the eastern time zone & rise before the birds so I was on here early. Hang in there mom! You're doing the right thing!
    • Now that my initial rage has calmed a tad.... your daughter has to fulfill 4 out of 5 of the diagnostic criteria. Second opinion can do a gene test. If positive, then she will have4 out of 5 of the dx criteria to dx without a positive biopsy. See: http://www.gastro.org/news_items/a-biopsy-should-not-be-required-to-make-the-diagnosis which says in part: The presence of signs and symptoms compatible with celiac disease. Positive serology screening (high serum levels of anti-TTG and/or EMA). Presence of the predisposing genes HLA-DQ2 and/or –DQ8. Histological evidence of auto-insult of jejunal mucosa typical of celiac disease. Resolution of the symptoms and normalization of serology test following the implementation of a gluten-free diet.   Also see: http://www.tenderfoodie.com/blog/2014/5/1/dr-fasano-on-new-gut-autoimmune-research-autism-clearing-up.html She can get a dx after her symptoms resolve on a gluten-free diet!
    • OMG!!!! The doc wants her to get sicker & sicker & do further damage so he can diagnose her? Don't do me any favors doc!!! I'm so spitting med right now I can't even speak! Find a new doc, take the records & get a second opinion. Maybe the next doc will have a freaking brain & dx your daughter. She should be dx'd! This is absurd in the extreme. The very least that should happen is the doc give her a dx now & then in a year or 2 have her do a gluten challenge & do a biopsy all over again but seriously, that would be just as cruel as what he's doing now. He's an ASS!
