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. 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....

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. ;)

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
