Loey

Well, perhaps Kween Jyaghnutt can proclaim somethin' for Psillyville..... . ...we could all keep our clocks the same around here...I'd be up an hour before everyone else, sitting for an extra hour at appointments, heading to bed while everyone is watching the news...But we'd be together in Psilly Psolidarity! :rolleyes:

-sigh-

Alright, so part of my headphones died yesterday right? No big deal right? Right.

so i opened my backup pair today only to notice they've reduced the feel of them. Fine go green and all that. Then i noticed a white poweder on them. Fine, whipe down really well with a damp paper towel and keep going right? Noticed i did not get all of it off so after class the pair of headphones got a full bath (made my ears itch so its probably latex or something).

All good right?

When i went to insert it into my mp3 player, it was not working right (this was before the bath). Alright, unplug plug into something else. Headphones work fine.

Sadly, I believe my mp3 player is dying. I'm hoping it'll hold out till black friday so i can replace it (its... 4 or so years old? it gets used every day and it helps me with my stress issues).

Why now? why why why TT_TT

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

Besides, I'd like to think that I've paid my dues by now and my karma

should be bringing the pSiLlies only happy things at this point. Right? :lol:

I can't wait to get an extra hour of sleep! It does help to have more light during your waking hours too. People start to stagger around like zombies during this time of the year, until the time changes.

I tend to zombie most of the time. :wacko:

So drizzly and gloomy here. Slept in til almost 8 - even the rooster wasn't getting out of bed any earlier - and waiting for a break in the rain to run out and feed the chickies.

Had the pirate over for a couple days. Don't see him as much now that he has a job.

Computer crashed. Never figured out why, but was able to use my disc to boot up and restore to a previous date.

Harvested what may be the last of the tomatoes and peppers. Most of them are split from the constant rain we've had for the past few weeks, so I think I'll throw everything in a blender and make salsa.

Need to make another pot of apple/pear stuff. Gearing up to sort through the last box of pears to see if any of them are usable. Already gave some to the chickens. Some look moldy, but undamaged so I'll soak them in venagar after washing, and peel all the skin to check for mold. I think it's just from the couple of truly moldy, damaged pears that were in the box.

Still have plenty of apples, but they are hardier than pears so I'll deal with them later.

What do you teach, Vynscegnt?

I am going over the master list of props/costume items needed for Jack's Fall Production. We have a labour dispute going on within the province between all the teachers' unions and the government, who just passed a bill of pretty tight austerity measures. As per usual, the kids are the ones suffering, as the teachers have stopped ALL extra-curricular activities -- no high school sports teams, arts clubs, tutoring groups, or drama productions. SOoOOoOo, some amazing kids at Jack's school decided that the show must go on, and are putting on their own huge production all on their own. They've had to search out sponsors, get a rehearsal venue, theatre for the final shows, all props and costumes, all advertising .....with no help from the school board. It's quite exciting, really. |I can't believe what these kids can do with a little support.

So I need to find, in order of importance: two burqas, a straight jacket, a (fake) sub-machine gun and and a sultan's headdress. :unsure:

Here's the promotional poster I did. We're sending it to all media outlets and posting it on community billboards. Jack's the guy on the left...

We use Kraft shredded mozzarella. There are ingredients: cheese (with sublisted ingredients), cellulose powder and natamycin. I've never seen any kind of starch in a Kraft cheese product.

I'm pretty sure the Kraft Shredded Mozzarella I buy has potato starch in it-- don't have a bag to look at now but I'm pretty sure. Maybe different in Canada, PeOte?

I see Vyncegnt had been issued a psillie spelling. Very nice.

Ok, gonna go build a fire in the fireplace and cozy up the living room. Getting a little chilly.

Maybe. I have a few Kraft cheese products in the fridge and I checked the ingredients on three of them, including the shredded mozz.

    • Biopsy completed
      I was diagnosed with blood tests in October with celiac.  My numbers were all so positive and high, and therefore, elected not to go through with the biopsy.  He diagnosed with my celiac then. However aftrr 3 months of pain , I did go though wiith the biopsy.  My doctor said I didn't even need to go back on gluten which was fabulous for me.  He said with the numbers that I have, the pain I am in, he has no doubts I sill have damage.  So, that is what I did.  No gluten challenge here. I was happy that virtually everything was good. Stomach was great. However, I did have "duodenal mucosal changes" -- which were "supicious' for celiac.  Now we wait for the biopsy samples to come back.  
    • Normal Iga Levels For Kids?
      Just came back from a pediatric GI doctor with my 12 year old. the doctor told me that Chris' IgA level of 45 is too low and normal range for his age is 70. Although the standard Celiac panels came back negative twice, he wants another done with TTG and IgG.
    • Celiac in 10 month old?
      only the first one is a celiac test.  and you need the rest of them run.  What country are you in?
    • Second Panel has come back...advice?
      If you follow the gluten-free diet correctly, without being paranoid about it either......your DGP will drop because you won't be eating the food that makes it rise.  I think having a gluten-free house is a great idea because it allows you to relax in your own home. As for reading labels all the time, I have a few comments on that one.  In the beginning, and depending on just how much processed foods you plan on eating, it is a good idea to get into the habit of reading labels.  You learn how to do that correctly from experience.  However, in 11 years gluten free, I have never once seen any processed food I have bought that changed their ingredients. I'm sure it can happen but I've never seen it. Usually, with higher end brands, they never do that because if the product is a success, they don't mess with it.  I can't speak for generic or store brands because I do not buy them. I do not eat a lot of processed foods either. If you are buying a product specifically geared towards the Celiac population and is certified gluten-free, you do not have to check the label unless you have other food intolerance's. Glutino and the other companies which market a gluten-free line of products will not change their ingredients and put something in there we cannot have. Whole Foods Market Gluten Free Bakery line....same thing.  They are all dedicated facilities that make food for Celiac's and are not a worry. I am from New England and buy B & M baked beans, which are gluten free. They are a New England company and haven't changed their recipe for years and years...in fact, maybe never.  Those beans are an institution around here and they will not change their ingredients that have been popular for a very long time.....they have been around since my great-grandmother's time. I buy the basic ones without the added flavorings like onion, etc. I can't speak for every flavor they produce because I eat only the basic beans. But I no longer check the label....don't have to. The company specifically told me they don't mess with success and would not change ingredients. Supplements are something you need to read labels on every time but food items are a little different and you will become very good at understanding the whole thing the longer you do it. It becomes second nature. I am very happy you are on your way to a much healthier life! 
    • Nation's First Free Food Pantry for People with Food Allergies or Celiac Disease
      Kansas is wheat country, and like the rest of America, Kansans are generally not gluten-free. That means the food in their charity food pantries are not usually gluten-free. View the full article
