Florida was GREAT! We were in St Pete Beach and did a day trip to Sanibel where I got more shells than I know what to do with and saw dolphins really close to shore!

BEV!!! I spent the day on Sanibel once, back when Dad still lived in FL.

Closest thing in the states to a South Pacific feel that I'VE been to anyway. Reminded me of Boracay. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm

Seriously- oh wait! Spring break? March or April? If it's march I'll be in cancun filming Lymies gone wild- IV lines are the new sexy :P :P

:lol:

Except when David wears those buttless chaps!!!!!!!! :ph34r:

Which David?

:lol::P

You all had me reminiscing back to MY younger days (second oldest phart here, somewhere between Peter and Patti).

As a date at a VMI (nikki - Virginia Military Institute and at the time a totally male institute) I saw Tina Turner WITH IKE. I am sure that it was quite a night for many a maiden :rolleyes:

Tooooooooo toooooooooooooo funny - I very recently discovered I HAVE this mp3 on one of the mp3 C.D.s I made before flash players existed. :lol:

I mainly listen to Classic Rock. I grew up listening to it and really have grown fond of the bands from the 60's and 70's. Those are what are mainly on my IPOD.

My first concert was Aerosmith and I was in the 5th row, center. It was wonderful. I think saw Goo-Goo Dolls at a college campus before they got big. I have seen Journey twice now, Forgeiner, Peter Frampton, BonJovi.

Bon Jovi is in concert in March in Philly but I can't go.

I would love to see Van Halen though

We have similar tastes in music Amanda, I'm a big Classic Rock fan :)

Aerosmith was one band I didn't get to see in the 80s/90s that I would have like to.

Van Halen was awesome, saw them in the "Sammy" days when they toured with Monsters of Rock.

Speaking of college campus concerts, I saw Modern English when they came to my school in 1990..you know that song Melt With You??

This was years after the song was popular, there were about 100 or 150 of us that showed up in this small room, talk about up close and personal! It was fun though.

VH came to fresno recently!! once with sammy and then another time with david

i perfer sammy over david!

I do too!! I LOVE Van Halen with Sammy.

5150 and 0U812 were pretty much the soundtracks for my high school days :lol:

Count me in for Rick Springfield.

I lurve Rick Springfield, is there any song better than Jesse's Girl?!? :lol:

I cut my teeth on 70's stuff--lots of Motown, 3 Dog Night, Elton, Chicago, Neil Diamond, Steely Dan (Deacon Blues--possibly the greatest song ever).

"Your Song" by Elton John reminds me of walking home from school with my best friend, Sandy, before I had a care in the world :rolleyes:

Music played such a huge role in my life growing up and even as an adult. When my older son was born (1981), I had my transistor radio (!) with me at the hospital and "The Tide is High" by Blondie will always remind me of that night.

Yep--hearing a song will put me back to a place in time.....

Neil Diamond, I would LOVE to see him in concert!

Patti, that is so true about music bringing you back to a certain place and time.

Blondie's "The Tide Is High" brings back so many memories for me as well. I was just 8 or so and had just gotten a new record player. I was so excited, my mom took me to a Peaches record store to pick something out to break it in and I picked out Blondie's Autoamerican. I played that record over and over and over again. The Tide Is High was one of my favorites.

I just saw that he is gonna be on Oprah today.

I saw that too :D

Saw Genesis at Wembley Stadium London - - GAD!!! I felt grown up!!! (I was only allowed to go as I was with my brother!! :lol: )

GGGGaaaaaaaaaaWWWWDDDD!!!!! Surely NOT the English ska band???????? :unsure::D

Nikki, this sounds so fabulous! You say it like it's no big deal, oh yeah I saw Genesis at WEMBLEY :blink:

Hee hee, living vicariously through Nikki :lol:

Oh yes, Madness. They were very poplular in the states, their videos a staple on a little ole newly born network called the MTV!!!!

Part dos, busted for over quoting :blink:

Me, too, Patti! We had music playing in my house growing up literally all the time. My mom plays piano, my dad the uke, and if they weren't playing we were listening to Duke Ellington, Frank, Gershwin, big swing bands...

My dad had musical numbers he'd write for his show that ran in the 60's and 70's, and I used to watch him while perched on the stairway, as he practiced an intricate soft-shoe or lip-synced some Al Jolson....Then he'd come to the dinner in full black-face, and we'd tell him not to get makeup on his serviette... :rolleyes::lol:

:lol:

Me three, music was a big part of my childhood. My parents loved music and it was always playing in the house, lots of "oldies" 60s music, Elvis, 5th Dimension, Johnny Mathis, Neil Diamond, John Denver.

Then when my brother and I got a little older we took over with Kiss, Blondie, and REO Speedwagon...and the rest is rock history :lol:

i was king when i had this recorded from teh stereo speakers onto my portable casette player! i would bring it school and we'd rock out !

My Sharona

:lol:

Good song! Good times!

Florida was GREAT! We were in St Pete Beach and did a day trip to Sanibel where I got more shells than I know what to do with and saw dolphins really close to shore!

If it's march I'll be in cancun filming Lymies gone wild- IV lines are the new sexy :P :P

:lol: Lymies are all the rage

Glad you had such a great time in Florida :)

Ok.....I'm about to reveal something that goes way beyond bodily functions and other things I've shared here. I was in the AV club in high school. :ph34r: Kissey's post reminded me of it--I'd bring in 3 45's per day and play them over the loudspeaker after the Pledge and before the announcements. I always got rave reviews on my Seals and Crofts.

Having a deja vu moment........I do recall a conversation about this before because I remember this little unknown fact about you Patti :lol::lol:

ARGHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! busted for too many quotes again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :angry:

Nicola's query - where is kissey:

Kissey - not here - somewhere else - - but we are actually sharing the same brain so it's okay when he's gone.

:wub:

Day On The Green #2: Foreigner, Loverboy, Scorpions, Iron Maiden (July 18, 1982).

Day On The Green #1: Journey, Triumph, Eddie Money, Bryan Adams, Night Ranger (July 30, 1983).

Gary Moore was originally slated to appear but was replaced on the bill by Night Ranger.

Day On The Green #3: The Police, The Fixx, Madness, Oingo Boingo, and The Thompson Twins (September 3, 1983).

Kissey has a small hint but doesn't QUITE know the extent to which I disdain crowds/concerts/loud events with throngs of people (Alex, I totally can relate!!!!).

I did see The Police w/ Oingo Boingo here in Fresno in 1980-something.......but look at Kissey's Day On The Green 1 and 2 - those are bands they watch in hell. :ph34r: Don't tell him I said that. :lol:

OMG guess what you guys........you all know how much I LOOOOOOOOOAATHE musicals and plays............guess where I'm going Thursday night w/ Squats: a musical dinner play of the worst possible calibRE. Yup, a local thing I have avoided for 20-plus years - I think I went once, decades ago.........so we're seeing this play with some of his friends. My mom snorted quite madly in the phone and took great joy in telling me that her friend has seen the play that we are in fact seeing, and that it was quite bad. :blink:

I'm taking a flask. :ph34r: Or else, maybe just some LSD before hand...... ? :lol:

<response to Julie welcoming Kissey>

:lol: kissey is the funnest word and it just makes you really happy to say it. Kissey, Kissey KISSEYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

VH came to fresno recently!! once with sammy and then another time with david

i perfer sammy over david!

Kissey went to Van Halen concerts? oh dear......he's such a metal head. How can this work out? Alas, I have converted him to my music. Slowly, the brainwashing is working..... (I DO have a couple of Van Halen tunes on my Ipod, BTW).......

In response to Patti's post:

Three Dog Night was part of my early childhood........the rest were high school. Except - - OMG - dare I say it here??????????? am I the ONLY person who abhors and doesn't remotely comprehend the appeal of Neil Diamond?????????????? help me......... :ph34r:

Peter/Scooter!!!!!!!!!!!! A Silly is ALWAYS young!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And if it was possible to sound any dorkier, I went through a mildly rebellious stage when I was 19 and I knew one thing that would anger my dad the most was to take up smoking, but my first attempt ended up in me gagging and vomiting in front of a bunch of smokers. We're not even talking about MJ here (that's a entirely different embarrassing story), just plain old cigarettes. I still feel nauseated when I'm around someone smoking.

:lol: I started smoking cigars in 7th grade w/ my best friend Susie Bailey. But can't do them now - will vomit (green-faced emoticon)

GGGGaaaaaaaaaaWWWWDDDD!!!!! Surely NOT the English ska band????????

Madness, The Specials, English Beat - - I saw all of them!!!!!!!!!! Still play almost DAILY some English Beat and Special Beat Service. Kissed Dave Wakeling on the cheek at concert in Monterey, where I saw him three times.

Oh. Fee Waybill of The Tubes kissed ME on the cheek as I was front-and-center, standing on the table, at a small concert here in town when I was young and hot - decades ago. :lol:

Yeah - - well - if Susie likes ya ...you must be ok ;)

oh.........he's more than okay............but don't get me started.........I could go on and on and on..............he's a DREAM. ;)

<okay, OKAY! I"ll stop now>

"Feelin' Stronger Every Day" was another of my personal theme songs last summer as I went thru the awakening of getting my life back. <gittin a lil verklempt now>

thanks for that memory! I just this second downloaded it from Itunes!! :) I do have Kid Charlemagne on my ipod, FYI........Steely Dan was HUGE for us in high school.........and The Stones, Journey (scary - can't ever listen to them again, unlike all other things), Van Halen....lots of Ska including The Clash......and many more.

Me, too, Patti! We had music playing in my house growing up literally all the time. My mom plays piano, my dad the uke, and if they weren't playing we were listening to Duke Ellington, Frank, Gershwin, big swing bands...

My dad had musical numbers he'd write for his show that ran in the 60's and 70's, and I used to watch him while perched on the stairway, as he practiced an intricate soft-shoe or lip-synced some Al Jolson....Then he'd come to the dinner in full black-face, and we'd tell him not to get makeup on his serviette...

Em........your childhood homelife sounds idyllic and dreamy.......and if we ever do have a sillyville reunion, yer dad's a' comin.......................

by the by... im not pullin any fingurs 'round here !!

smart boy.......best not to........but a sidenote on that: Nikki didn't know what "pull my finger" meant as evidently they don't acknowledge that sacred little ritual across the pond........alas, we introduced it to her - her boys love it and so - now it's spreading like wildfire. I think I saw The Queen sticking out her finger to a guard the other day................ :lol:

P.S DON'T LET Susie watch ANY cable TV ( she will NEVER move off the couch )

Kissey already heard my squeal of delight as I blasted out his ear over the phone when I realized I could watch FOOD PORN at his house!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OMG - we had The Knack on 8-track in the early 80's, on this ski boat we had. at the end of the summer, I threw that 8-track and a few others into the lake...............sorry for the polluting........(shame-faced emoticon) but I couldn't take it any more.....ha ha ha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Part Deux coming up..........

We do!! Do you ever listen to Virgin Classic Rock? It is this awesome channel out of London. We used to stream it all the time when I worked down in the lab. Who knows, one day maybe we will catch a concert together, it would be quite the party!

Congrats Queen Tom

Ok while we're on the music topic, I'm hearing an awesome variety on my old mp3 C.D.s on the ride to WhF - and :lol: catching up on posts now sitting in pkg lot :lol:

Right now one of the 1st Sade songs, "By Your Side".

"Protection" by Massive Attack; the only Fiona Apple song I liked; "Haunted" by Love&Rockets; "We Only Get What We Give" by the New Radicals & Nick Drake's "Pink Moon".

Gah!!!!! Too much to .. ..which to reply(!)

Must SHOP, drive THEN type!!

But, yeah, my Needle Dimundo (as we somehow called Neil D in our youth) appreciation doesn't go much past 1975's Hot August Night.

:lol: yep

Kissey - not here - somewhere else - - but we are actually sharing the same brain so it's okay when he's gone.

:wub:

Great idea on the brain share (one & the same and all that)

Wondering how Kissey copes with the lone dingo thoughts whilst shampooing carpets though :huh:

I'm taking a flask. :ph34r: Or else, maybe just some LSD before hand...... ? :lol:

Personally I'd drop the tab ;)

Kissey went to Van Halen concerts? oh dear......he's such a metal head. How can this work out? Alas, I have converted him to my music.

Oh ok.........how's he getting on with The Spice Girls and Will Smith??????? :lol:

Madness, The Specials, English Beat - - I saw all of them!!!!!!!!!! Still play almost DAILY some English Beat and Special Beat Service. Kissed Dave Wakeling on the cheek at concert in Monterey, where I saw him three times.

I never knew those bands were big in the US!!!!!

When hubby was a teen he was a 'mod with a Lambretta (anyone seen Quadrophenia??)

My son appears to be crossing over too . . . got off the school bus with an "I'm reaaallllly cold" . . . now he's running a fever of 101. . . so I guess it's when you start running the fever.

And here is a shocker, the school nurse ended up in the hospital ICU for about a week with double pnuemonia(sp?). I don't think she's home yet. They say she'll end up off work for about a month. Hopefully she'll come back but I heard she was thinking about retiring and this may be the deciding factor.

Kingy say Dingy go download that "By Your Side" (augh! you better NOT have some inexplicable gluten-brain disdain for Sade!!) for a dingoland snuggled singalong.

Such a sweet song of unconditional love.

And I particularly like the way the lyrical phrasing extends outside the musical.

"Hold youuuuuu tiiiiiiight" .. . .<and ya think it's over. .but then>

"to me"

I'd guess the range is right .. . .Susie kinda alto-ish?

OH!!!! GOOSEY!!!

Tina WITH Ike IS quite the coup!!!!

5150 and 0U812 were pretty much the soundtracks for my high school days :lol:

Boyyyyyyy do I remember when VH's 1st record came out. NOOOOOOOOoooooooobody sounded like THAT before!!!!!

:lol: at WhF, "Keep Talkin' 'bout Love!!" was rockin' from ceiling spkrs! :lol:

********************************

(I feel an overquoting coming & I pre-emptively blame Sue :lol::P )

OMG guess what you guys........you all know how much I LOOOOOOOOOAATHE musicals and plays............

Plays too????? Thought it was just musicals.

Even some Tennessee Williams' et al classic w/ great actors??

(Or just Clooney as Brick?)

:lol: kissey is the funnest word and it just makes you really happy to say it. Kissey, Kissey KISSEYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm getting the feeling Susie's in a good mood.

Madness, The Specials, English Beat - - I saw all of them!!!!!!!!!!

The Untouchables?? <one band of mine opened for them ~'83 before I joined :( >

Oh. Fee Waybill of The Tubes kissed ME on the cheek as I was front-and-center, standing on the table, at a small concert here in town when I was young and hot - decades ago. :lol:

<here I go again> Last band I was in opened for them at Fremont Arts Fest ~'98/99.

It should've been more fun but I was heavily celiac-depressed. :(

thanks for that memory! I just this second downloaded it from Itunes!! :) I do have Kid Charlemagne on my ipod, FYI........

Ahhhh Feelin' Stronger = that summer betw 6th & 7th grade, at the pool w/ best friend, for me. (Besides last summer's theme song)

Walter Fagan on Kid C has the sort of vocal inflections that make Elton's singing special.

"I think the peeeeeeople down the hallllllll know who ya ARE!"

    • They are big on selling books -. They try to spam a lot forums and FB groups. why can't you eat nuts, nut flours, quinoa, hummus and beans? I think I missed that. Those are a good source of protein.  If you can't digest lactose look for a lactose free cheese - like one made from yogurt. at first,I thought life was over.  But with a few years of experience, I have found it isn't that big of a deal. It helps to have an attitude of "I am not here for the food.  I am here for the wine ( or the company . ). Also helps to not care what people think - "I don't care if you think it's odd that I brought my own lunch to the funeral luncheon. "( And it helps that my lunch looks better than theirs lol.)
    • Gracey, It am a mother and I am going to give you some  valuable advice.  You need to keep and document everything related to your health.  Every lab test result, notes from your doctor's visits, etc.  Why?  Because only you are your best health advocate (except for your mom).  Doctors come and go, but it is up to you to manage your health.   When I changed insurance and doctors, I had copies of all my medical records in hand.  My new PCP was impressed.  There was no doubt that I had celiac disease, fractures, Hashimoto's and diabetes, anemia, etc.  I had physical proof.  As an result, she was quick to refer me to a new GI  and order tests to measure my progress  (e.g bone scans).  My family health history chart helped not just me, but other family members.   So, find out if biopsies were taken during your endoscopy.  Get the pathologist's report.  See if your doctor checked for other issues besides celiac disease.   Hugs!  
    • I don't do grieving, bad enough for something that's been taken away in the past but to know my future is pretty much gone now just feels too much. The only time I've forgot about the unfolding nightmare was during my hour or so of sport so need to cling onto that at the moment or I fear going to a very dark place indeed. Yup that SCD site is terrifying, still can't make up my mind if they're giving out useful information to genuinely help people or using scare tactics to sell their books etc. 
    • I agree with all the advice you have been given.  It is excellent!   I just want to add that things will get better.  There is a huge grieving process to go through.  Do not fight it.  You have a right to grieve as your health and lifestyle will change, but you will adapt!  Exercise gently until you feel a bit better.  There is plenty of time to exercise hard later.  Taken this advice from a gal who just rode 40 miles (no biggie you say) this morning  on her bike through the Santa Ana winds (better known as the Devil's winds!).  But I am three years into my recovery.  I took it easy the first six months because I was anemic.  I teach few exercise classes, bike, swim and run and I am in my 50's.   The SCD website?  It can scare the (bleep) out of you.  There was one point that I took from the site and that was to stick to whole nourishing foods.  No rocket science -- just common sense.    
    • Thanks for the replies so far everyone, much appreciated Great, another doctor gets it wrong, how many more times can they make a mess of this diagnosis process?! Bloating had gone down a bit in these first few days of cutting the gluten so I guess expect that to come back. It's one way to have a farewell tour of the gluten foods I guess - if a little or a lot makes no difference may as well go all-in... The doctors didn't diagnose this at all, Google did. If I trusted in the health professionals I'd be blaming the symptoms all on stress and having counselling for it whilst the fire raged on inside me due to a clinical condition they'd missed. Just glad one of doctors agreed to run the test on second time of asking to keep me quiet as much as anything. Believe me I've read that newbie thread multiple times, as well as numerous others around the web. Been doing nothing but since Tuesday when the blood test results came back and each time I go into the comments sections a little bit more of me gives up inside. Seems so many don't ever heal and so many associated complications too. The reality looks bleak apart from a lucky few it seems. In the nicest possible way the vegetarian choice is non-negotiable, it's a core part of what I believe and the thought of eating any form of animal \ fish flesh would make me physically sick (sorry meat eaters) so will have to find some way around it, how I don't know yet. Perhaps lots of this... http://www.pulsin.co.uk/pea-protein-isolate.html The cooking bit is a concern as it's something none of us do well at home, adds to the feeling of being completely lost right now. I kick myself for the decision that lead to the stress as I could've avoided all this. The only thing I can cling onto there is that I was having some pains in the side before that time which I blamed on a muscle strain... maybe that was the early stages, in which case I could feel a bit better knowing it had just come on gradually. With the biopsy and gluten from what I read the villi take a long time to heal up so they'd still see that. With the blood test result as definitive as it was surely the disease is pretty much confirmed? How can it heal enough for non eating gluten to throw a biopsy result yet on the flip side take over a year to heal (that sounds like the best case scenario time-wise from what I've read). Not suggesting anyone is wrong for one second but need to understand how that works with what's going on inside to make any sense of this situation.
