Here it is! Post number 6,000 by yours truly. Scott is still at 5,997.

The plumber and his helper are here, trying to get to the root of the problem. Well, that is it, you see. The drain is partially obstructed by tree roots that the plumber's snake is having trouble getting through. This is a condo, so the part of the plumbing outside the walls is the responsibility of the corporation. Hmmm.

Nice - I knew today would be a good day for a phlip :)

Sorry you have a root blocking the path - but certainly glad it will be covered by your homeowner's association - now if the e-break will magically repair itself all will be grand!

Oh...the oven - mine is older than yours -- one of the old white porcelain gas stoves from the 30s that I love - made the hubby find one for me when we moved in 21 years ago - not sure I'd be in love with a harvest gold stove - at least it isn't avocado ;)

Burnt orange shag is back!!! well they call it my some other term - my folks replaced their "custom" shag from the 70s in their family room with a very close match - my Dad said - "No, this is not shag" - still laughing because no matter what the designers call it -- this kid from the 70s calls it shag - period ;)

My first house had avocado appliances. The fridge was a Norge with flowered vinyl contact paper in the bottom (because it was cracked). Lots of shag carpeting throughout. The nice thing was that it had some really nice hardwood floors underneath.

This quote from Shroomie (from a perfectly legit thread) is too good not to be posted in THIS thread:

I refer to them as bunny scat. I once knew a "head of household" who decreed that two sheets of tp was the maximum allowed. I said I bet he shat bunny scat. Never heard of the big D!!

Am skeert. :ph34r: Still haven't got me roof fixed :unsure:

I KNOW that insecure, broken-roof feeling (post-quake it was).

But during a remodel, during which the builder was putting on a real pitched roof to replace our tar and gravel jobbie) I arrive home from the gym, in the rain, to find the crew hard at work on the exposed roof. I scream and yell, don't you know it's raining!!??? and they tell me they don't call that rain. So I go inside and find water dripping out of my light fixtures (including my walk-in closet) and all buckets and bowls packed away and desperately finding containers to put on hardwood floors and towels for mopping and plastic for covering, and "GET A COVER ON THAT G********D ROOF!!" and this being California where it never rains in June they had to drive to the hardware store and buy Visquine (Sp?) :unsure::blink:

I was leaving my last class and one of the professors requires his class to sign out right? Well, i sit at the second row from the bottom (big theater style seatng classroom). People were crowding the stairs to get to the sign out sheet. I was able to slid through to get to the other side only to have my good knee catch hard on an armrest. I somehow skinned it through my jeans. Naughty words were said at this point. It still hurts.

Brighter side of things, remember that ppaper i stayed up till 4am working on? got an A on it with a "good job" message.

Sorry for the double post, but this needs its own.

Imagin, going into your bedroom at 12am, turning on the lap (aka only light sorce in the room) so that you could start folding clothes for a trip tommorow. When, all of a sudden, you're buzzed by one ticked off wasp. My guess is that it was hiding in the lamp. It got ticked off and started buzzing around the room and it landed high up on the wall (far out of reach). As i gathered my courage, it decided to buzz the lamp, only to get even more ticked off and finally falling to the ground, where i then delt with it.

Fine, okay.... its over with. Becuase i had to use a spray to deal with it, my room's window had to be opened up, and there in the window seal, i find the body of #7.

I wanna cry... I am so sick of this.

Oh and my knee is now a nice blue and purple color.

Burnt umber? Raw sienna? These somehow sound too appealing... . . . .... ...Puce?

Yep, sounds like a nest to me. Had one in my last house. Used to get big fat lazy ones come in this time of year. They love eaves and attics.

One for building services I think. I think we paid someone to deal with it.

Yep, and there is nothing i can do because A: its probably in the vault of my room where i cannot see. You would need one of those really big ladders to get up there. Or B: its somewhere in the hallway. All i can do now is notify housing about it. -sigh-

At any rate, my knees are acheing. I've been overcompensating with my bad knee (my left) because of the incident with my right (which is a lovely shade of red, black and blueish purple). Its an endless cycle. I'm going to have the doctor re-examine my knees again. Its been... 4 or 5 years since its been done last. While i've lost quite a bit of weight since then, it hasn't really helped all that much. Any ideas on what i should ask?

Just a thought, I used to have knee problems and I eventually found I had pronation (sp?) in my feet. That is dropped arches or flat feet. You can get shaped inserts to help support them.

I am still susceptible, and I know what you mean about moving the problem round :(

The other thing I did was swimming and cycling to build up the muscles above my knees

Good luck x

Yesterday afternoon, we had the vehicle looked at for the parking brake problem. A couple of seized parts needed to be freed up, but I was less than pleased at how they went about dealing with me. The guy said we'll know in twenty minutes. We'll wait, we said. Fifty-five minutes later, I inquire, and they still aren't ready. Then they want to sell me expensive work that had nothing to do with the problem I asked them to look at initially. No sale, guys! I'll pay the laboUr charge to free up the sticking parts, but don't expect to see me again.

This morning, Tony the appliance guy found a simple problem with our stove, and replaced a defective wire. So, the harvest gold stove lives another day. This calls for home-baked pizza tonight.

    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Welcome, @iwillmoveamountain! Of course you are not wrong to pursue getting testing for celiac. My advice is to drop that doctor and find a new one, preferably one who is celiac savvy, and who will listen to you and test you for the disease.  
    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Hi! I was hoping some of you might be able to tell me if my symptoms seem like good reason to be tested for celiac disease... I actually asked my doctor to test me (years ago) and she told me she would not test me because the test is expensive... However, I am now desperate to figure out how to manage my health issues and am willing to find a doctor that WILL test me if my symptoms seem to point to celiac...Here they are:
      I have been diagnosed with all of the following over the last 12 years (I am 22 years old, and have always been a healthy weight/slightly underweight, and quite active):
      Irritable Bowel Syndrome Fibromyalgia Anorexia (started when I was 10, I have been mostly recovered since I was 14) Depression Anxiety Panic Attacks Horrible mood swings (from suicidal to totally fine in a matter of minutes)
        Chronic constipation and bloating Acne   HOWEVER, no one in my family has been diagnosed with celiac....am I wrong to think I have it??
    • Weird Reaction
      Yes, I was surprised about the MSG in broccoli as well. I just had a quick look now as I couldn't remember where I had read it but some mushrooms have it to. A Google search will bring up a few things. I always just thought MSG was an artificial food enhancer!! Insecticides are still a big possibility though. Why do you not want to try organic? We buy organic when we can and fruits and veges that are in season are usually the best and cheapest.  Thank you for the link, Cristiana. Very helpful. I have an appointment with my Naturopath in a couple of weeks and going to have a blood test done before that. She is excellent. Very knowledgeable and loves her work. Until then I'm not taking any supplements. I generally eat pretty well anyway so we'll see what she says. In the past I have used B12 injections (aka Neo Cytamen) which I found much better and safer than taken orally and very cheap. The energy boost was very noticeable. I didn't know it helped with anxiety though. She has also had me on Magnesium, Probiotics and Vitamin D3 and I also make my own Liver Tonic (Milk Thistle, Dandelion Root Powder, L-Glutamine, Taurine and Choline Bitartrate) which I use from time to time for a quick detox. Too much of anything can be bad but I think iron can be not real good in large amounts. Deficiencies can be related to gut health and/or competing for absorbtion with something else you may be taking I found. I'm no expert though but just a few things I've picked up during research. My normal GP told me to just eat some more red meat but I want to speak to my Naturopath first before supplementing. Her knowledge on nutrition is a bit more up-to-date.  I was just sitting there at lunch today after feeling great all morning and had a "weird feeling" come over me. Just a not quite right feeling. Very hard to describe and nausea seems to have returned to. It's funny that as I get older any little thing I get I seem to think it's life threatening even though all the tests I get back say I'm in good health. I guess that's part of that dread and doom and gloom feeling I mentioned earlier. Wish that would go away.  
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      There are great gluten-free pizza crusts out there, as well as good dairy free cheese. I find the key is to add good toppings, e.g. meats, carmelized onions, other veggies, white anchovies. Life goes on. Congrats. Hope the good feelings keep up. 
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      Just want to update incase anyone can find this helpful. I have stopped eating grains and dairy and everyday I'm feeling more and more like myself. It's amazing and I don't really care that I won't eat a regular pizza again. I mean 4 months ago I would have said I would die without gluteny soft pizza, now I am happy to never eat it again if it means I will never have to suffer a panic attack.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
