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:

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 have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
