But surely child labor (even virtual) would not be countenanced in Psilliville? That would send the Minister of Labor sallying forth on her high steed, cracking whips and busting heads and bums toot sweet.

I have had 2 childs and I have nothing against them laboring! It keeps them out of trouble!

. . . as many things are schmashed under her highnass.

Quit talkin' about me arse, GeeEff!! I may not be the queen anymore but I can still get schmashed do some schmashin'

Speaking of safety . . ...I just signed off a new req for black-belted security. Dunno wth last administration was up to, but the head of security is saying that w/ some new 'seniority by height' rule, the union won't allow a new addition over 5 feet tall.

Arrrgh how'll I ever find a short blackbelt willing to work for virtually nothing? (At least the work's virtual too)

Anyone got any of those?

I got one at my house . . . he's used to working for nothing. To quote him directly . . . "I'm nothing but a slave to you." . . . and my response . . . "Yes, yes you are." (all said in fun by the way)

My congratulations, King Tom. Unfortunately, what with the holidays and all . . . I was unable to get the robe to the dry cleaners so I just tossed it in the washing machine. It shrunk a tad . . . maybe a little more than a tad . . . How do you feel about a royal poncho?

Dearest Psillies,

Earlier this evening I wrote a rather lengthy note to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving surrounded by those you love the most. I am so grateful to have you as my family. I hit the wrong key and lost the message I was writing. So, here I go trying to recreate it.

This past year has been a rough one and you stood by me with unwavering love and support. It was about this time last year that I started to lose my grip on reality and write rambling replies, sleep 20 hours a day and vividly visit with my loved ones who have passed away. Superman stood by me and I wound up at Yale University where we discovered I was on a dose of Depakote that could kill an elephant. PLEASE don’t ever take that evil drug.

Now I am on the road to recovery, seeing a naturopath and having her work closely with my doctors. My medication finally seems to be the right combination.

This year I’m having Thanksgiving at my house. I paid to have it catered and my dear SIL is making Lasagna (our dear Annie {Tony’s friend} is a vegetarian so we have her covered). We’ve got a houseful staying over. My DB & DSIL are here until Friday and the kids are staying until Saturday night or Sunday.

I feel so truly blessed that I’m out of the dark tunnel and into the light. You have all helped more than I an ever say.

I wish we could all have Thanksgiving together and perhaps one day we will. In the meantime I wish you a bright light to follow, improved health, and a year filled with joy and only the best of everything. I treasure each and every one of you and look forward to sharing our tales (be they happy or sad – I’m praying for the happy) .

All my love, healing hugs and blessings,

Loey

I seemed to have posted the same message three times but can't find a delete button. It does give me a chance to wish you a blessed Thanksgiving again.

I love you all,

Who wouldn't want the power to proclaim? Fear not!

You, MW, could mandate replacement of "yet" w/ "yet(i)" heretofore, if you wish.

(Hehe, almost missed that)

Just can't get too cocky bout it or The People might churn 100 pages in 2 days.

ExQueen Pseuzee's "whot . ..only 4 pages to read?" when it was 104 topped it off.

Hey LoLo, Happy Thxgvg inDEED!!

Nay, do not go getting too cocky or thy subjects might rise up against thee in the midst of thy Thanksgiving feast, when ye are most vulnerable, and yes, most of us do know the way to Sannazay :D -- if ye are from So Cal (or some other strange parts of the territory) just follow THE 101!!

Hiyo Pattiyo, down there all unsquiggly . ...do we still get squigglies?

I've noticed this, sadly.... . .we do not squiggle, ever, anymore. What has become of us? Have we become so jaded, so old and tired at all of this? Is this life not still offering us a multitude of reasons to squiggle??. . . . .Your Majesty, please do something about this.

Thank you, thank you . ..[royal wave]

Good question... . ..I found this interesting -- Canadian Thanksgiving coincides with the U.S. observance of Columbus Day and has done so since the United States implemented the Uniform Monday Holiday Act in 1971 (most countries in the Western Hemisphere fix Columbus Day to October 12). As such, U.S. towns with high amounts of Canadian tourism will often hold their fall festivals over Thanksgiving/Columbus Day weekend in part to draw and accommodate Canadian tourists.

What in hell is the Uniform Holiday Monday Act? :huh: Citizens must wear uniforms on certain Mondays er sumphin'?. . . ... . ..

Happy T-Day Psillies! :)

Loey, enjoy your turkey and family. I sometimes write longer replies in Windows notepad and then paste them into the c.com reply window. Might work for you?

Congrats to Keeng Ptaum, our new monarch with the incredibly curly horn!

Postcard echange

I'll post the game plan later for the exchange when i get them for the art website. No need to be super arty on it. Printing a card from the 'puter is just fine.

Back at ya', sistah!! :wub:

Thanksgiving was delicious (I didn't have much of an appetite) but the company was the best. My DB & DSIL even brought Annie a present so she wouldn't be left out. Right now everyone's watching a movie and I crapped out. My nose and sinuses suck so I'm going to read Master Vincent's book in bed until I fall asleep. I wish I could stay up tonight because DB & DSIL are leaving early in the AM. The kids are staying until Saturday night or Sunday afternoon. Annie is very comfortable here and cooks her own meals (I keep vegetarian food in the house) and offers to cook for me. OK, fading fast. I just wanted to say that I hope you all had as splendid a Thanksgiving as I did, just wish I could have made it longer.

God Bless dearest psilies.

All my love, Loey, LoLo,etc.

P.S. anyone here collect disability and nit get it yet?I would have thought that they'd have posted it yesterday. Hope I'm not being flagged about anything - can't imagine what. Will call tomorrow - please wish me luck.

    • How the gluten-free diet can cause new heartburn / GERD: sodium acid pyrophosphate
      I never really had much heartburn before my diagnosis of Celiac and consequent dietary changes. But since then, I have discovered Udis, Van's, Canyon Bakehouse, and many other gluten-free brands. About a year ago I began eating 2 waffles every day, 7 days a week with my breakfast. The waffles I was eating were Nature's Path and Van's, both which use very high amounts of sodium acid pyrophosphate. The waffles are mostly air and carbs. Within a few weeks I began to develop recurrent, very painful heartburn that would popup constantly. My tolerance for acidic foods declined--whereas previously it would take much more acidic foods to cause heartburn, now any amount, no matter how small, would cause heartburn. And it kept getting worse with each month to the point that I began to worry about my health. I developed GERD that wouldn't go away for 24 hours after eating an offending food. The offending foods list kept growing bigger and bigger to the point that almost anything would cause heartburn and some degree of GERD. So I eliminated almost all foods containing sodium acid pyrophosphate and the heartburn and GERD stopped. I can eat tomato-based foods again with either no discomfort or 5% of the discomfort I used to experience, and I can eat foods on the offending food list again with no heartburn at all. Despite searching the internet for hours for an answer to what was causing my heartburn and GERD, I found nothing definitive and had to figure it out on my own. Did you know there is absolutely nothing at all anywhere on the internet connecting sodium acid pyrophosphate with hearburn? To my knowledge this will be the first ever post on the topic on the entire internet. Either that, or both Google and DuckDuckGo are suppressing the information. Also, did you know that sodium acid pyrophosphate is an ingredient found in almost all aluminum-free baking powder? That's what I get for trying to eliminate aluminum! I am making the switch to single-action aluminum-free baking powder soon--single-action doesn't have this ingredient, but it's less convenient to use unfortunately. I'm interested to hear if it causes anyone else heartburn as well. I'm glad to be heartburn-free and comfortable for the first time in a year.
    • Do this, scientists! (experiment to confirm/deny the existence of "leaky gut")
      Leaky gut is a condition that we have little knowledge of.  The symptoms this condition could cause are not agreed upon. Some health practitioners say it could cause "wide range of long term conditions [1], like chronic fatigue syndrome and Multiple Sclerosis. The possible cause list NHS gives is much more accurate: inflammatory bowel diseases – such as Crohn's disease infections of the intestines – such as salmonella, norovirus andgiardiasis  coeliac disease  chemotherapy medicines chronic kidney disease   radiotherapy to the abdomen (tummy) immunosuppressants (medicines that weaken the immune system) HIV/AIDS  cystic fibrosis   type 1 diabetes sepsis complicated surgery As you can see, the list includes a lot gastrointestinal conditions. Gut becomes "leaky", letting too big particles into blood system, and possibly these particles act as poison (because they are not  supposed to be in the blood, thus the possible bad effects). Now, to confirm this disease, I was amazed that this test hadn't been done before:
      Feed the supposed "leaky gut" patients (e.g. celiacs with damaged bowel) with IV fluids. Because these fluids go directly into the blood stream, and the particles are "elemental" (glucose, vitamins, amino acids... all supposed to be in the blood stream anyway), they shouldn't cause any symptoms. If they notice improvement, the problem is in the digestive system (I'm also including stomach). If not, such condition as "leaky gut" doesn't exist. Rather the problem is how the body reacts to the "elemental" particles. E.g the most common explanation would be diabetes (the IV fluids just caused elevated glucose levels), that also should be tested. Also the "candida theory", because its proponents say the candida is in the WHOLE body, including the blood stream. To eliminate this, patients should take anticandida meds, then again go on IV fluids, and if they NOW get better, it was candida. If not candida, and not diabetes, nor allergies, we have a new condition we aren't even aware of (body reacting to elementary particles with no obvious reason). However, if the patients DO get better, the problem IS in the gut. Now, it could be celiac disease, and the improvement could have been due to eliminating gluten from the diet (because IV doesn't contain gluten). The question remains that did the bowel actually leak any particles? (not just gluten causing autoimmune reactions and malnutrition, and explaining all the  300 symptoms).  Or the patients just get better due to NOW acquiring all the necessary nutrients.  To eliminate these possibilities, they should feed the patients with gluten-free food (or even better, with elemental diet, because it could also be lack of digestive enzymes or something else). If they get worse, the problem is STILL in the gut, and thus the "leaky gut" exists. If not, "leaky gut" is probably a non-existent condition.
    • So Hershey's Miniatures Aren't Gluten Free?
      I am really ill just now - 20 minutes after eating 2 Hersheys Milk Chocolate Miniatures - checked on the Hersheys site and the milk choc. minis are NOT included on their list of gluten-free products -and no, I am not sensitive to dairy, so that's not it.  NO MORE for me... it is not the "end to a perfect day" but it isn't fun.
    • Candida test
      I noticed after I posted this that there are some topics about this posted before.  There is a search function above.  But, if anyone has anything new to post that would be appreciated.
    • Negative tests, possible celiac?
      I had a celiac blood test around may 2015. I'm 20, male. AGA  -        35       range 0-20 TTG IgA -     5      range 0-20 I believe total IgA was normal. I have been gluten free, avoiding gluten best I could for about  2 weeks before this. On june 2015, did a biopsy, results said no signs of villous atrophy, doctor convinced I don't have it. Been gluten free for about a month before this, doctor only said to eat a 'normal' diet beforehand. I know that this could yield false negative results, but I don't think the amount of time is enough to hide the damage?   Had symptoms since I was 4-5 years old, very skinny , pale, constipation, diarrhea, inconsistent nausea (from eating wheat products, soy sauce), migraines, stomachaches, night terrors, sleepwalking. Symptoms were most evident till around 10 years of age. During my teens, the symptoms seemingly start to fade, rarely nauseated, random bouts of diarrhea 1-2 times a month or so.   Been gluten free for up to 8 months now, decided to start eating gluten again just to see how I would feel/ for retesting. Almost on day 2, no noticeable symptoms.  Ate gluten heavy for a month, a year before, breads, pasta 2-3 times a day, lost over 3-4 kg, started feeling overly lethargic during the day/after eating gluten. Sharp stomach pains and mild diarrhea once or twice.   I'm quite certain it's celiac, but if its not, and after reading about how non celiac gluten sensitivity might not exist,i don't really know what to think anymore. Any opinions/ similar experiences would be appreciated.
