Damn... . . . . .the Funny Object thread is now locked. I was steering the debate toward the "thing' being perhaps an elephant's trunk... . ....I was ready to draw diagrams an' everything..... . . . ...

Never mind. The way the board's been going lately I'm sure you'll find another opportunity :rolleyes:

Dani sure did get the best of that whole exchange - showing some new talents.

Guys, I am living with a green-eyed monsta :unsure:

We are still feeding the neighbor's cat. They came back and are renting a few miles away, took her home with them, there was almost immediately another aftershock, and she ran, showed up back here 3-4 weeks later, all skin and bones and burrs, and spooky, but here. She is slowly regaining confidence and putting on condition. She used to show up for food once a day, now it is more like three times a day (winter's coming on). We have to move where we're feeidng her because I have a curved stairwell on the outside of the house with "wonky" glass in three long narrow windows in it but "she who kows she is the apple of our eye" can look out the lowest one and see the unfaithfulness to this other feline creature that is occurring, at the same time the green-eyed one has been put on a diet because our housesitter fattened her up last year and our cutting her back hasn't done a lot of good. So the green-eyed furry one I am sure figures that all the extra food that she should be getting is being transferred to this outdoor interloper :ph34r: She then goes over to the front door and wails, crying her heart out :lol: , until we come back in. And the neighbor's kitty can "feel" the evil eyeball on her.

It was all over my jeal-ous-y :D

:lol: Happens from time to time 'round here... . . ....incredibly, there are times when Psillies actually have lives to live, and things that need tending to outside of this thread.

T'is a paradox indeed Emmel!

It's been one of the driest winters on record, the reservoirs have run low and so a (garden) hosepipe ban was put in place.

As soon as this was in place it rained virtually EVERY day in April (it's still not enough though to top up the reservoirs for our water supply dry.gif)

SOoo, as the ground is so dry & unporous, the heavy rain has just run off of it causing flash floods.

Fascinating eh? blink.gif

Aw, damn no comments on the Omission gluten-free Beer thread. :(

I'm guessing it's more due to it being in the Publications section than anything else, right?

Beer threads usually get ppl talking.

Anyway . ....how can someone of sound mind name a gluten-free beer OMISSION and not actually omit the barley??????!

Usually Oregon plays to a higher standard in these matters.

These barley gluten-free beers are hard to explain to Hub. He happily goes off on his errand to the beer store. He, ever on the look out for a new, improved gluten-free beer, might bring one of these home. But They say " gluten-free"!

Yes honey, and they achieved their goal - you bought it.

In my world, the babies, including Dufus Drumstick the turkey have all managed to get themselves up the ramp and into the coop. Yay!! I was tired of chasing peeping babies around trying to get them up to bed while their frantic mom ran up and down the ramp trying to get them up to follow her. Sadly, Brine, the other turkey, didn't make it. I think the feed store sold me a sick bird, as he went pretty quickly.

If'n yer bored, check out the pic of Seuss, soggy and filthy, on fb. I laugh at him every time I go out, and he's getting pretty miffed at me. :lol: :lol: :lol:

This is the end of an era here in Canada. Today the Royal Canadian Mint will strike the last one-cent coin (penny) ever.

Oh, and:

May the fourth be with you, Luke. ;)

    • Hi Anns and welcome   Do you think that I am on the right course to see if I possibly have Celiac?   Yes, it was smart of you to consider the possibility and its good that you've had the tests. Both the aneamia and bloating are symptoms, although of course they may be unrelated. Best way to find out is to check as you are doing.   Can this develope later in life ( I'm 46)?   Yes, I think its most common discovered later rather than sooner.   I ate a meal last night that was gluten free and did not feel like nearly as bloated after eating, would I notice a change that quickly?  Thanksort for your input.   Yes, I noticed far less of a heavy feeling after eating very soon after diet changes. However you would be better off not trying gluten free just yet. I collected some links and other stuff here, it may be of use: Your best bet is to eat as normal and wait for the test results. If your doctors eliminate celiac there's nothing to stop you excluding gluten at that point to see if it helps. But before then you need to keep eating it to ensure an accurate diagnosis.  All the best  
    • Well HIV undermines the entire immune system as I understand it, so that would be akin to using dynamite to put out a kitchen fire! There is some work going on to try and retrain the immune system to not see gluten as a threat though: http://www.immusant.com/docs/ImmusanT DDW Data Release FINAL 5.24.16.pdf  I'm laughing as I write this imagining the conversations you could have with people as you tell them you'd like to contract HIV so that you can eat a decent sandwich        
    • So, I have just yesterday had blood work done to test for Celiac so I am waiting on my results.  This was prompted when my Dr discovered that I was severely anemic and after other testing sent me to  Hematology.  I actually inquired if I could possibly have a gluten sensitive because of the anemia (which has improved with an iron supplement) and feeling bloated after eating and well most of the time actually and after some research I found that this could be a sign that of a gluten sensitivity.   The Hematology Dr also recommend an upper GI.  Do you think that I am on the right course to see if I possibly have Celiac?  Can this develope later in life ( I'm 46)?  I ate a meal last night that was gluten free and did not feel like nearly as bloated after eating, would I notice a change that quickly?  Thanksort for your input.   ANN
    • Yes, the first time you use gluten free flours, it feels like a challenge. ... of a gluten-free living after her elder kid was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. View the full article
    • 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!
