OK, so someone please explain why there's a grayish statue/bust showing up in people's avatars :huh: Am I missing something? Is it some kind of fad going around the Internet or something?

Thanks.

Well . . .. . . . . .....

The story is long and meandering .. . . where to begin?

My husband was down in the underground parking garage at his office a few weeks ago, and as he was walking by the large garbage receptacle, he saw this....bust. A male head, in profile, with frontal-view shoulders and chest, in much the same position that ancient Egyptians used to portray their painted figures.

He brought it home. The mystery began.

Where did he come from?

What was he used for? A piece of art? A display?

Why was he thrown out?

And perhaps most intriguing.... . .. . by whom??

I began to take it on as a mission, to find out the story of Sam Hill Manhead (now, his acquired name is another entire story - - one can go back about thirty pages on the Tickle Me Elbow thread and follow it through).

There are seven businesses occupying this building:

Two law firms

A homosexual dating service

The Embassy of Burundi

A modelling agency

The Workplace Safety and Insurance Board of Canada

A denturist

With one of these businesses as a potential owner and user of our Manhead, we really began to wonder... .. . ...

What/Who is this mysterious character? What use could he be to a lawyer? A Burundian refugee? A homosexual? A civil servant?

We still ponder this question.

We talked about how he could be used by someone living alone who wants outsiders to believe that there is a large man living there, too - - he could be placed near a window, and moved about throughout the day.. . . .. .a fine safety tool. He could be placed in the passenger side of one's car, and the carpool lane would suddenly be an option. He's the seat-holder when you leave the movie theatre to go to the washroom. Quite interesting possibilities... . . ... . ..

The Sam Hill Manhead story is full of clandestine details - - it is a love story, a chilling mystery, a great, epic international crime story. And it should be read by all - - on the Tickle Me Elbow thread. All of the details cannot be recounted here, as my post is already long enough!

;)

The funniest part of this story is that not a single person in the TME thread thought it was remotely unusual that Emily's husband goes through trash receptacles.

OMG....'Tis true. . .. ....

Actually, Sam Hill was placed in the garbage area, in full view.

Another bit of significant information?

Ah Em, thanks for the stroll down memory lane :rolleyes: The story of Sam Hill never gets old.....although I feel I must add that it was I who first uttered the words "what in the Sam Hill....." that was, I believe the inspiration for his name.

Patti, yes!!! And the raucous, fascinating story of who the original Sam Hill may have been - - who the man was that inspired such a wonderful, handy expression....."where in Sam Hill is that wife o' mine?" - - is yet another tale for all to read, in the last thirty pages or so of TME.

:D

Mygawd....this isn't even the TME thread, and people are still scurrying away!

:lol::lol:

All right, everyone.

The trials and tribulations of a chronic illness like celiac disease are exhausting and very unfunny. I think this is why the Tickle me Elbow thread is so special, and has become a favorite spot for many of us to come and laugh. Honestly, we can be spitting out food or drink upon reading some posts.....things get that hilarious. I mean, isn't the new folklore icon of Sam Hill Manhead and his rise to cult status worth investigating? 'Tis funny!!!

AND, Best of ALL:

You can learn how to make these!!

    • Depression / anxiety issues
      The second link I gave you was to a series of online video courses, you can try those for free to see if its something you think might help. There are also a lot of worksheets you can download, the first link had some I think but there are plenty of others out there if you search online.  Finally I had another look and found this: http://www.getselfhelp.co.uk/step1.htm  Which looks like a decent 7 step program Obviously its not as good as a dedicated session with a CBT counsellor, but the above may give you some tools you can use, especially when your thoughts are spiralling into a destructive circle. You could also search to see if there's any group sessions in Melbourne, that's how the NHS delivers it, they would be cheaper and there's really no need for one on one CBT, because it's more about delivering knowledge of the toolset. I approached it very sceptically but found it of some use, although at the time I was still under the gluten influence so it never tackled the root problem. The game changing aspect of discovering this is that you now know why the psychologist sessions didn't hit the mark, how could they when the root of your depression was your illness? My sessions now are far better and more enjoyable than when I was under a gluten fog.  Aside from all this the other advice holds, eat well, exercise, get sunlight every day and the longer you're on the diet the better you should get.  Oh and at least NI put up a hell of a fight in the Euros, hope you got to see that down under!
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Funny enough that a naturopath at a mind & body convention that I attended last week said I was also deficient in selenium. You put your finger into a small holder (Similar to having your heart rate checked) she said I'm deficient in b vitiams, selenium vitiam d, she also said Somthing about having a lot of mercury in my body, to be honest it all went over my head as yet another thing to deal with so I haven't looked much further into it as it was all just to much, I have a print out of the results that she gave me tho, I'm going to look into it. Thank you for taking your time to reply to this thread 
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Thanks for replying, I have not yet tried Cbt, I did meet with a psychologist for 2 months when I was really in the deepest depths of depression but it didn't really help, I couldn't concentrate at all during our sessions my anxiety and negative self talk was trough the roof at the time, and after loosing my job I could no longer afford the $150 sessions, I don't have medical insurance as I am currently waiting on my permanent residence visa to come tru ( originally from Northern Ireland) I might look into some Cbt sessions to see if they help, I'm willing to try anything

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
