We have the books to finish but we've seen all the movies now. They were fantastic. I love them all. We aim to own all the movies as well as all the books.

The next adventure we will embark on is Pirates of the Carribean.

I read all the Harry potter novels before I saw the movies which I think was really good as the movies dont show half of what is in the books. You will love Pirates of the Carribean we are waiting for the fourth to come out on dvd to join our set.

I LOVE the books, have the whole series but I can't stand the movies. Just dosen't follow the storyline all that well for me. I know they can't fit everything from the books into the movies but I come away feeling dissatisfied. Oh well. Now, i'm getting into the Percy Jackson series and the Kane Chronicles. I'm an adult but I love these books. :D

My oldest son (10.5 yrs old) loves the Percy Jackson books and the Kane Chronicles. I decided to pick the first Percy Jackson book up and read a little bit. It was a good read! He didn't like the Harry Potter books though.

I love the Harry Potter books. My favorite is the last one. It reads like an account of the holocaust. When I was teaching High School English, it hadn't come out yet, and after I read it, I wished I was still back in the classroom. I taught at a rural "southern" school where there was quite a lot of racism. I would have loved to assign the books as a major test grade replacement. I would have had them write a paper comparing and contrasting it to the holocaust and describing how we could use the examples presented by Harry in our lives today. *sigh*

We've read the whole of the first book. It worked out well for us to watch the movies first because my dd has autism and without the movies she wouldn't be as interested because she can't imagine what she's reading but she can think back to the movies while I read them to her.

    • My daughter, who is almost 21 and has celiac disease, was diagnosed with Epilepsy a year ago. Hindsight being 20/20, we realized she had been having seizure since she was a teenager but the random passing out and feelings of being 'out of it' were attributed to dehydration or poor nutrition and sleep habits during numerous trips to the emergency room. In our reading about Epilepsy, I have found some mention of celiac and gluten issue connections and even where a strict adherence to a gluten-free diet provided a lot of improve the with frequency and severity of seizures.  I would be interested to know if anyone else shares this experience.
    • I have also reacted to various Planters products, believing them to be safe because gluten is not listed in the allergens but have had almost identical reactions to yours.  It did not occur to me that I might be getting zapped from them until just recently when I ate some of their Salt and Vinegar almonds and became really ill and then recognized that I had reacted to them before. I have notice in the past few months that the 'Hermans' brand nuts, which have never mentioned wheat in their allergens now carries the 'processed in a plant that processes wheat' disclaimer.  It makes me wonder if all nuts are processed in the same manner and if all nuts and nut products should be considered unsafe? I know that I will not trust the Planters brand any longer regardless of whether wheat is listed or not.
    • I've heard some people say that they're gluten free, and some say they're not.. I had a container of planter's cashews that I ate a few days ago and I haven't been feeling that great since then. I thought I was fine, but yesterday I woke up with a headache and was feeling really gassy all day. Then since last night, every once in a while I'll have some stomach cramps. They last for a few minutes and then go away.. that has happened 3 or 4 times since last night. It seems weird that I wouldn't have a reaction right away though.. or at least within a few hours of eating them. I ate some on thursday and on friday, and I didn't really start to feel sick until saturday. It's been a while since I last got glutened though, so maybe my reaction has changed? Or maybe I'm being paranoid and I just ate too many cashews haha. But that's the only thing I've eaten in the past like 2 weeks that was different. Has anyone else had a problem with planter's nuts?
    • Well, a different doc is checking for wheat allergy not the one who ran the celiac test. Interesting about the lyme and ttg iga, I didn't know that.  So much to muddy the waters with her.  She's been treated for lyme for many years but they keep coming back with other tick borne illnesses that may be infecting her.  But since  the testing is so poor and nothing is solid in her testing, I am needing to look at every avenue I can to try to help her.  It's just not adding up. As a young child she had sensory processing disorder, than PANDAS (reaction to strep), then Lyme.  Was gluten free for many years until we added it back in about 4 years ago.  Then 3 months ago started failing fast with psych symptoms of dissociation, anxiety, fears, unwanted laughter, joint pain, random pain, feeling ill after every meal, severe pain after wheat and dairy combo followed by diarrhea.  I hope we get a good GI who will at the very least be willing to rule out celiac as we are running out of ideas.   I hope after all her testing she will be willing to go gluten-free again regardless of what we find, to see if it will help her.
