oooooh that might work.... no duct tape or masking (i don't think)... i'll see what i can scrounge together...

Or try a rolled up bath towel.

Does housing pay your heating bill? If so you might email them to suggest they install a gasket on the bottom of your door or threshold which will keep bugs out and save energy :)

I've been doing the towel, but i can't do anything with it when i leave as it moves. I did however find some double sticky side tape and some cardboard and taped it at the bottom of the door so its flush with the floor. It opens and closes more slowly.. but if it works...

Yeah, they do. I used their email this time. I know for a fact that the head of housing often answers the emails.... so maybe this'll get them to do something about it?

I would have sent an emailing discussing the wasps I had found, then stated that I was allergic to wasps and demanded to know what precautions they would be taking to get me to the ER if I were stung.....

maybe. Oh well (I swell really bad at the sight, it has yet become bad enough for epi pens apperently), I'ma get a can of hairspray next time i go to the store. Probably something cheap to make it easier to kill them, as lysol ticks them off.

I got myself into another delima... lets just say never leave dishsoap on something thats going in the dishwasher to be ran. Don't do it!

There was one family who we have not heard from since before the storm and we could not reach all day. So I put out an all call on Facebook to track them down and someone saw it and called someone else who drove out to their house and found them stuck with out power or food! Now they have dinner and are safe! Yay! Internet+Smart phones rock at a time like this! *insert snoopy dancing here*

I just lost all 5 of my multiquotes, and I can see smilies but can't use them.

When you select posts for MultiQuote, a button will appear in the bottom right corner. Use that button to launch the reply window with the quotes in it.

If you can't access the smileys, try clicking the leftmost button on the upper tool bar. That is the one that toggles the edit mode. The tool bar buttons do not work in basic edit mode any more--they did before the upgrade.

LOL! I don't know if it was your karma or not. The outage originated with power problems at the internet connection to celiac.com. The celiac.com server is in your state, Bunnie! :o

Please check your messages - still trying to figure out alternate way to get volume 4 if the Kindle keeps rejecting it.

Glad you're okay, Patteigh. :)

I'm also glad you're alright, Patti. You were in one of the two hardest hit states. I worried about all of my friends back home. We're such a widespread group that it's scary when we can't stay in touch. I was without power from Monday at 4 pm until 3 am this morning. We lost a lot of meat from the freezer. the food losses in the fridge were not as bad as we thought they'd be.

Going to bed as I'm wiped out. Tomorrow I see the pain doctor. He's seeing patients at a restaurant as he has no power. I'm guessing we won't have to give a urine sample.

Be well my psillies. Stay warm & dry.

Much love, :wub: :wub:

Oh my word, I kept waking in the night to see if we were back together :o

My friends Granny in Baltimore lost phone contact for a while, we think the mast went down, but everyone now accounted for.

Nice to see everyone again. Hope anyone who has clean up to do finds what they need x

    • I would like to ask if anyone has eaten puffed rice from Arrowhead Mills.  My daughter, who has celiac, wants to eat it and I am looking for advice.  The only ingredient is rice, but they do not test the product so do not label it gluten free.  I called the company and they say they clean all their equipment between each product, but since they don't test it cannot label it as gluten free.  Would you allow your daughter to eat this product?
    • He might have celiac disease (or just the start of it).  He might have Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance, which is real, but there is not a test for it.  He might have other food intolerances (milk, dyes, etc.).  You have been to an allergist and he did not positive for allergies (I assume wheat was included in the panel.).  Trialing a diet is fine, even a gluten free diet, when you ruled out everything.  But you have that quirky TTG result.  I gave you the link from the MayoClinic (top notch) and their algorithm recommends further evaluation.  An allergist is not a celiac expert nor is primary care doctor.  You should get a referral to a Ped GI.  If she/he suggests a gluten-free diet, then fine.  Because if he improves then, the GI will give you a diagnosis.  By the time you see the GI, he might have ordered another round of celiac blood tests, genetic tests, or he might want to order an endoscopy.  This case is not clear and that is a bummer.   The cure is the diet.  But he will be going to school and a diagnosis will pave the way for accommodations all the way to college.  And anyone here will tell you that once you get off gluten (and that is the root cause), it is awful....horrific... to go back on it for further testing.   This is his life and yours.  You must do what is best for your family.  I wish you well and we are here to support you.  I care.  I am mom.  
    • This just published: Highlights   • Kernel-based gluten contamination in oats skews gluten analysis results. • Grinding inadequately disperses gluten to allow a single accurate analysis. • Lognormal distribution of the test results renders a single test unrepresentative.   Abstract Oats are easily contaminated with gluten-rich kernels of wheat, rye and barley. These contaminants are like gluten ‘pills’, shown here to skew gluten analysis results. Using R-Biopharm R5 ELISA, we quantified gluten in gluten-free oatmeal servings from an in-market survey. For samples with a 5–20 ppm reading on a first test, replicate analyses provided results ranging <5 ppm to >160 ppm. This suggests sample grinding may inadequately disperse gluten to allow a single accurate gluten assessment. To ascertain this, and characterize the distribution of 0.25-g gluten test results for kernel contaminated oats, twelve 50 g samples of pure oats, each spiked with a wheat kernel, showed that 0.25 g test results followed log-normal-like distributions. With this, we estimate probabilities of mis-assessment for a ‘single measure/sample’ relative to the <20 ppm regulatory threshold, and derive an equation relating the probability of mis-assessment to sample average gluten content.   The full article can be accessed at Gluten Free Watchdog if are a subscriber.
    • If I may say something right now, the suggestions, advice, and information provided to you in this forum is just that: suggestions, advice, and information.  What has been provided can be used as tools to help figure out what is going on.  Please don't go away disgruntled or too frustrated.  There have been times myself when advice and suggestions was given to me, and I was not sure what to do about all the information.  I had to think and pray on it before I could act on it because my brain was functioning enough to do something about it right away.  It was on survival mode.  Forgive me if I am wrong, but I believe this is where you are at right now.  You are not sure where to go or what to do, so your body is just doing what it can to function day in, day out.  If this assumption is correct, I GET IT!  It is not fun, neither is it easy. Don't give up.  Things will get better.  Take all of this information and go to your primary doctor to see if you both can put your heads together and figure this out.  The answer may not come right away, but be patient.  it could be everything coming at you at once that making your body go into hypersentive mode.  I don't know, because I am not in your situation.  Until you go to the doctor, do what you know to do and God will take care of the rest.  There is something that has kept me sane through this past year: It will be okay because God is in control.  He knows what is happening to you and your future is going to be.  When you have a good day, enjoy those moments.  When you have a bad day, bring back to memory those good days and see if you can do something for another person.  I have found this year that if I focus on someone else through the bad times especially things don't seem as grim. I will be praying for you.
