I was actually surprised the other day, Dad and I went for a

Country cruise to check out potato fields and they are blossoming like crazy!! Which is great considering many thought the crop was going to be ruined by the mass amounts of rain we got...I suggested we grow rice in our new paddy's while we waited for Noah to load the ark hehe 😜

Some of it is for feeding animals, too. The soy here looks good from the street. Nice and green still. Maybe I'll get out and see if we have beans.

Last year the corn in Ks fried but the sorghum did really well. I have heard some farmers switched to sorghum for this year.

The piece I heard on the radio the other day pointed out that 75% of foods we buy in the grocery store contain some form of corn. But they also said that most of the cost of things like corn flakes are PACKAGING, so the prices on things like that won't go up TOO much. It is the cost of meat that will rise the most.

Out here in the midwest, one of the things they use corn for is that abominable ethanol. (My car is a '96 and won't run on it. I accidently filled up with it once and had to have my fuel pump replaced because ethanol dried up the rubber seals.) In many areas you can't find gas that DOESN'T contain it.

Now the farmers are trying to get the rules changed so they don't have to make and sell so much of it. With the shortage of hay already critical, they (rightly IMO) want to free up more of the corn crop to feed the animal.

    • I sit in an ice bath after a long training (running or riding).  It speeds my recovery, I swear!  
    • Oh, one last thing..... ICE PACKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You'll feel better. Hey, you have a tub? Want to join the polar bear club in the privacy of your own home? Fill that thing with cold water & dump a 5 or 10 lb bag of ice in there. I'm serious.
    • I don't care what she specializes in, you MAKE her do a dh biopsy. I'm not being mean. Please understand that. It's just that I've heard this a thousand times before - no, a thousand one hundred!  Here's another thing ~~~ get her to order a eTG aka TG3 serum (blood test). That is specific for dh.  Oh gosh! Don't you just hate the ones in your ears???!!!!! Nah, we hate ALL of them! I swear though, when those suckers get going in & on your ears it just drives you stark raving mad!!!!! You've convinced me there is more than ample reason to strongly suspect it's dh.  Here's a tip..... the patterning the lab will be looking for is very easily destroyed by scratching so pick you out some prime places that are new & maybe, just maybe you haven't scratched them to smithereens thus far, and make some super thick gauze bandages & place them over those places so even if you reach to scratch (& we know you will! right?) the gauze will remind you & hopefully help to protect it. The biopsy needs to be taken from a clear area adjacent to a fresh lesion. No steroid creams okay? Not till after the biopsy. BTW, if she wants to put you on steroids after the biopsy be warned, 99% of the time there is such a backlash of the rash the moment you go off the steroid that you will wish you were never born. A dx of dh IS a dx of celiac disease & no further testing is needed. Please come back & update us after you see her tomorrow. In the meantime you have my heartfelt sympathy. Take those cold showers & grit your teeth. Hopefully you will soon be able to go gluten free & start getting some relief.   
    • Extremely itchy and keeps me up at night to the point I was taking cold showers at 3am.   Currently my ears, scalp, feet, and chin just will not stop itching, my elbows have the rash and look purple. Eventually the rash will heal and leaves scars that seem to be purplish in color. I have not tried gluten free diet yet.  Waiting for all the testing to stop.  The new allergist i am seeing tomorrow specializes in skin disorders.
    • I am so sorry for your suffering.  Your story drives home the point that having Celiac Disease drives us all to do our own research and try to find a doc to help--if we are lucky. I wish you a speedy recovery and my most earnest wish that you are NEVER cross-contaminated again! You are a real trooper (little comfort, I know).  Wish I could do more.
