Can I vote Man U? ;-)

Nah... if I *had* to pick a baseball team (and ... er ... let's just say baseball isn't exactly my favorite sport), I'd have to at least go with one from the West Coast. I'd ordinarily say Angels (being from Orange County ... no, they are not and will never be the Los Angeles Angles, unless they move their stadium into Los Angeles County at least), but we may move to Seattle, so I might have to change that to Mariners in the near future.

Forgettabout the "Yinkees" and paaark a caaaar on the Dead Sox as well. There are sports teams outside of the East coast or big cities for that matter. My allegiance is with the Tribe and always will be.

I'm a red sox fan because my boss is and 'ware anyone who isn't - lol. And I don't know a single thing about baseball, so I just go with it.

I'm not a big-event goer to, except for maybe RenFair.

Red Sox....

I live in NY, but here are my problems with the teams here. The Mets...well, they stink. And I have just never found them interesting to watch, nor do I particularly like anyone on their team. The Yankees aggravate me to no end. A few reasons:

1. It's boring to watch the same team win every year.

2. They just buy out all the talent in the league, rather than spending their money wisely.

3. They overpay people, such as Derek Jeter (by 10 million in baseball standards--that is to say, for the job he's doing, he'd still be overpaid minus 10 million dollars) and drive up the market for such players. If Jeter is worth an extra 10 million, then Garciaparra feels that he is, too. And that makes it that much harder for smaller teams.

4. Low moral standards for keeping Giambi after the steroid incident. The most common reply to that is, "Hey, well the Giants kept Bonds." Well, the Giants are low, too.

5. I just don't like the players on their team. Though many will swear to the contrary, I think Jeter is cocky...a bit of an egomaniac, though he may put on a pretense not to be. I strongly dislike Giambi for obvious reasons, and there are little problems I have with each player, that I'm not going to bother to attempt to explain. I respect that Cano is a talented 2nd baseman for a rookie and respect Jorge Posada as a catcher who was underrated until recently (though he's still not in the same league as Varitek offensive or defensively), but other than that, I don't like them.....

And make the Orioles keeping Raffy too....

Also, Jason Varitek is the best and Posada is good but not near Varitek in my opinion either.

    • Favorite Hamburger Buns?
      What brand of hamburger buns does everyone like?  I have not yet found one that I like after a few bites.  Maybe it takes time to get used to the different texture/flavor of the gluten-free bun?  I would love to hear if people have found brands that they really enjoy so I can try them! 
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hi Kam,  I second everything that Cyclinglady has told you, but just to let you know that I be me intolerant to dairy before my diagnosis for coeliac disease. The 2npositive tests, were they both blood tests or one blood test and one endoscopy? If you are waiting to see them in the Endocsopy department, I think they will want to do one if you haven't had one already and in order to do this and get the correct result, you must eat gluten for at least 6 weeks before you can have the test done, because it is the gluten that causes the auto-immune result.  I too have a thyroid disorder, which was diagnosed long before I had been diagnosed with coeliacs disease. Also a couple of years after diagnosis I became intolerant to soya and xanthan gum and E464 (hydroxypropl methyl cellulose) which is quite often found in gluten free baking produce, including bread. A food diary is a good start, which has also been suggested, but don't jump the gun if you haven't had an endoscopy with biopsies yet. It is still possible to carry on with gluten free and dairy free diet if you are vegetarian, but it makes it a little harder and don't forget dairy free milk is usually fortified with vitamins and minerals.
    • Are The Following Gluten-free?
      You might have a corn intolerance or reacting to something else like gums or preservatives.   Just something to consider.  
    • Blood results - odd
      The OP's hemoglobin levels are below range indicating anemia.  Her ferrtin levels (iron storage) is very low.  Like you, my body processes iron just fine.  It was absorbing it that was my issue due to celiac disease.   This explains it better. Excellent recommendation regarding the Vitamin D.  Other vitamins and minerals should be checked too.  What was odd, and perhaps you can clarify since you are in GB, can you not purchase iron supplements in a drugstore like Boots?    
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Fat.  Seriously.  It is what keeps you satiated and does NOT raise blood sugar.  I have been on a Low Carb, High Fat diet for 2-1/2 years.  I eat to my "meter".  I did a lot of testing the first month to see which foods raise my blood glucose levels (no surprise, everyone is different).  Buy a cheap meter and strips at Walmart and test it yourself.   I eat protein in normal amounts (too much and the blood can convert it to glucose), veggies, nuts, dairy, and some fruit.  I do cheat on this diet, but NEVER on the gluten-free diet.  My blood sugar has been close to normal ever since.   Butter melted on my veggies.  Heavy cream.  Avocados, olive oil, meat drippings, bacon.    Yum!   Finally, the American Diabetic Association is recommending this diet for some people.  Why not for all?  They thinks it is too hard to maintain it (they should try maintaining a gluten-free diet!) and to be honest, there is not a one size fits all for diabetics just like celiac disease (we all have our various tolerances beside the need to be gluten-free).   My GP disapproved at first.  Now, he says to keep doing what I am doing.  My cholesterol levels are terrific!  (Normal compared to being super low before I was diagnosed).   I started this LCHF diet because I know that I want to avoid medications for diabetes (insulin excluded).    My gut just can not take it.   I have been weaning my family off all the excess sugar that is so prominent in the Standard name it .... diet.  I felt best when I went on this diet after being gluten-free for a year.   So, do your research.  Do what is best for you -- not for the herd!

      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. Thank You,
