We could make our own Thanksgiving parade out of it.

The psillies organized a parade long, long ago to celebrate, well, psilliness.

A thought for the old-timers: Let the Yeti lead! And have plenty of Altoids handy.

To read about the 2007 parade, start reading here:

Wow...this thread is developing into a palpable realm all its own...an empire with King, Queen, fifes, serfs and duchesses, many court jesters, (hmmmm...me....I could just be the slattern in the alehouse)....I think we should break into a huge virtual parade, with tassle-twirlers leading off, our Monarchs in fine livery, Lord Tom piping everyone in with his sax (could you manage something regal-sounding on a medieval hunting bugle, Lord Tom? Just for this event?) Tostito eaters and a fine yeti would bring up the rear. So regal...I wish we could parade all through Celiac.com! Just like the Santa Claus Parade, up and down all the threads and forums!! :lol:

Gah, this has all been responded to (ha -- good luck configuring one's way outta THAT improper preposition positioning), but ah, well.......

Or .. ..(gah! Indecision!) the not-too-long-to-hold-straight ceremonial horn w/ that banner/flag hanging from it, cuz I bet those come w/ a cool hat. ;)

And the ceremonial horns could get use in the upcoming inauguration ceremonies.

Of course I remember our drunken royal jester, but was there not a BUGLER around, as well?..... .. .dunno if he was as much of a miscreant....and I dunno if he was much of a horn-player, either.....

No Community Band? Even Hooterville had one . .. . . . sad.gif

Parades, herxes, Tostidos, Tom's foot placement in the bathroom stall, flutes--no way I can keep up given my still fogged-from-Sunday pea brain.

DagNabbit ( laugh.gif my great-grandma's swear word of choice laugh.gif ) just lost my post!!!! Now I have to start all over - Don't know if I will be as witty the second time around!

How about a mojito-dispensing Yeti float with Charlton Heston (GOOD GAWD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) and what we need is less care Bear...more TASSlE TWIRLING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

oh the HELL you say!! Yes, you are in charge of the fried dough wagon. I agree w/ Richard, we must open it up, in the spirit of the Care Bear, to ALL who want to participate in this bacchanal revelry. And YOU are also here to keep us in line, missy, should one of us suffer, say, a marshmallow to the eye or, overt and intentional cheating with the dough *gasp* ohmy.gif

:lol: :lol: This stuff is priceless!

    • Take a deep breath and calm down!    The incidence of cancer with Celiac Disease is rare.......it can happen but the vast majority of people never have that experience.  You may have somewhat enlarged lymph nodes due to inflammation from undiagnosed Celiac but that will all calm down and go away once you get going on the diet.  Believe me, there are many of us that have things happen during the diagnosis and early recovery period and everything turned out just fine.  There is an elevated risk for some cancers with Celiac but that risk goes back to that of the general population after a couple of years on the gluten-free diet. I cannot remember the exact time frame but it is somewhere between 2-4 years, I think.  So many of us went years without a diagnosis and when it was all figured out, we have gone on to be healthy with little complications.  Really...do  not worry about this.  Concentrate on learning all the ins and outs of this disease and how to live gluten free happily.  We are here to help you and guess what? The diet is not as bad as some make it out to be. Many things can be made gluten free and are every bit as good as their gluten counterparts. The diet may not be convenient but it is not hard. I would not lie to you!   
    • Well....one common symptom that most celiacs have when they are diagnosed (or undiagnosed) is anxiety.  So, there is a risk of cancers, but science has demonstrated that that risk goes down on a gluten free diet (if you have celiac disease).  In goes down to the same risk as those without celiac disease.   I kind of was a basket case.  I drive my family a bit crazy because I was anxious.  I felt a bit stupid too.  I guess I had a little brain fog going on too.  All that resolved after I healed. Welcome to the fourum.  Read our Newbie 101 thread under "Coping" (pinned at the top of the page) and learn about hidden sources of gluten and cross contamination.  I think most of us do not worry about cancer. We mourn the freedom to eat anything anywhere!   I did not have swollen lymph nodes, but I am sure others have and they did not have cancer.  Hopefully, they will chime in and set your mind at ease.  If not, you can search for "lymph nodes" at the top of the page (little magnifying glass).  There are lots of members with the same issue!  
    • I was recently diagnosed as having celiac and to be honest the part I'm having the most trouble with isn't the change in food or lifestyle. I'm really upset about what I've read about the risk of cancer increasing with celiac disease. I think this is playing into my fears because I currently have lymph nodes all over my body-my Doctor says they are not considered swollen or concerning, but I don't usually feel nodes. The lymph nodes and horrible diarrhea for the last 3 weeks were what got me into the the doctor for lab work. My blood work came great so I'm wondering if anyone else experienced lymph nodes reacting when they found out they were celiac? Also how do you deal with anxiety surrounding the increased risk of cancer? Thanks!
    • Wow I'm gonna be a skinny Minnie in no time rather than a bloated and confused Thankyou I'll try look at these images 4 days gluten free
    • Hi Natalie, The dairy should be eliminated completely for a few weeks at least.  It can be hard to tell what food is causing symptoms at first.  Dairy is a known problem for many people, even those who don't have celiac disease.  Carbs are bad if you are having digestive upset and bloating.  The carbs feed the bacteria that make gas in your gut and that can cause symptoms.  Everybody is an individual though so you may not have bad symptoms.  But when you are trying to heal fast and aren't sure what's causing the problems, eliminating some common problem foods makes sense.  There is no reason to reduce the dairy and carbs slowly though.  They can be cut out completely right away.  You should be able to tell if it's helping within a week or so.  Eliminating them is no problem as long as you don't blow away!
