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

That coffee thread and the "weird object" thread had great promise--- until some folks went off base. :( Bummer dude.

Did not mean to interrupt...carry on!

: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. Like, family concerns, jobs.... . ....we don't like this kind of thing to carry on too long, however....our priorities all lie here, of course....

Well, I'm five hours behind you, Gnick, and three ahead o' you, Ptaoughmmn... .. ..guess I'm right kinda in the middle. Strategically, I believe there is NO advantage to being where I am. :rolleyes:

Well.... . . ....we have maple syrup...and fantastic beer. However, I can have neither of them...

Gnick! You have a ban on hose pipe use over there?? What is a hose pipe? Like, a regular garden hose?. .. ...:huh:.. . ...and why can't you water things if there has been so much rain -- wouldn't there be a bloody surplus of the stuff?

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. ;)

    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".  
    • Thanks cyclinglady & manasota! I appreciate it. I came to give an update...... I'm still 99% itch free. I get a "place" like a bug bite once in a while that itches and I just use the prescription steroid cream on it & that takes care of the itch. My rash is healing up rapidly everywhere. Almost clear skin now! Yaaaaayyyyyyyyyy! Now for a rundown of the "treatment". For 20 days I took a 100mg doxycycline twice a day. Then we upped it to two 100mg doxy twice per day. I took those for 5 days & made rapid progress and the itching stopped. The doxy was getting my tummy though. It was getting really rough despite my eating yogurt. So on day 6 and day 7, I took two 100mg doxy in the am but in the pm I just took 1 of them. On day 7, I was nauseous for hours on end. So since I was still doing well without itching and the rash was healing everywhere, I decided to cut back some more. On days 8, 9, & 10 I have only taken two 100mg doxy in the am and none at night. I'm doing good and my tummy is much, much happier! No more nausea!  I'll update as things go along.
    • Many things can damage the small intestine besides celiac disease: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-else-can-cause-damage-to-the-small-intestine-other-than-celiac-disease/ Happily, I can share that I became a Great-Aunt this week for the first time  to a charming little boy. Sadly, my lovely 19 year old niece was diagnosed yesterday with Crohn's.  She had so many symptoms of celiac disease, I was sure she had it.  Actually, I was hoping that she'd have it, because Crohn's can be much worse.  At least there is a "cure" or known trigger for it -- gluten!   Anyway, your daughter might be suffering from something other than celiac disease.  It is possible.  It could be a food intolerance (e.g. milk).  My niece has suffered for years with periodic episodes of abdominal pain, vomiting, etc.  She doesn't have all the "classic" Crohn's Disease symptoms either, yet a recent pill cam revealed a lot!  Her endoscopy was normal.  Celiac panel normal.  Gallbladder scan normal (non-functioning gallbladder is a family curse).  My heart goes out to her, but at least we know what we are dealing with.  Will she ever get celiac disease?  It could happen. Keep advocating, Mom.  That's what I kept telling my SIL.  I also provided my SIL  a family health history tree that each GI was happy to receive.  Unfortunately, no one has had Crohn's in the family.  But, at least it allowed him to test my nieces gallbladder and for celiac disease (a full panel,  mind you).   It would not hurt to get a second opinion.
