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,

Loey :wub:

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!!

ALL HAIL, KING PTAOUGHMMNUSSS!

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

So far Kareng and JeroisyfishAngler r in the for the post card exchange. Going to need at least one more I stink so there ist an even number. 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. Actually any thing is just fine, to each their own!

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.

    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
