Omfreakingawd! Just tried Glutino Genius Bread fer the phirst time. Hands down the best bread I've had since gluten-free. Made grilled cheese sammies, and asked Mark if I was remembering correctly, that this tastes "real"-- he agreed it does. Wow.

I think I left my new official horn there. Hope the movers got it but wish I'd put it back in its case.

Well, we'll have to listen carefully for the sound of your curly horn, Ptaoughmnn, coming from the distance of other threads.. . . ....it could turn up anywhere. Could be in the "Publications" or "Dermatitus herpetiformis" sections.... . . . or in the section where the mods can only go -- you guys keep an eye out, will ya, Paghteigh, POeter, Jyessss et al?....

There's a fracture in the time-space con-psilly-um.

Gawd, 'tis true....my whole life has completely....well, shifted, since the Psillyville closure and restart ... . . . .. ..it all feels different, somehow......like the grand vertical hold has been tampered with....

Hey...what ever happened to the vertical hold? No one ever speaks of it anymore, and none of my TVs ever have this flipping picture anymore. My kids would not know what I'm talking about, I realize..... . . ...

I kinda miss it, actually...

:huh:

:rolleyes:

Skeeter told me she saw a movie (or show or something) the other day and she could tell it was "old" because there was a record player in it. :blink::huh::lol:

Hold that Victrola.....

Vinyl is back! My 19 year old is collecting now -- bought him a turn table last Christmas with USB connection so they can transfer their vinyl to digital...yep...stay tuned we are not as old as we thought - well that may be going a bit too far ;)

The current vinyl comes in a wide variety of colors, transparent, opaque, etc. -- not the solid black of yesteryear - kinda cool.

We kept our turntable and it is inserted in our "stack" for all those old vinyls... no USB though :( It gets to be hard to stay up-to-date as PeOter found out recently. Especially when you get to be of a certain age and not that hip anymore (as I am finding out :P ) Lots of modern stuph just passes me by, I'm afraid, even stuphh I have in me house!!!

Shrooomie, you constantly surprise me at your knowledge of modern/pop music -- I often read one of your song titles in ANOTHER THREAD (can you IMAGINE? ME, in another thread??), and think, Whoa... . . . ....is that, like, Top 40 rapper stuff? And I ask my kid, who says that indeed it is.

Shrooomie, are you really a cool, hip, nineteen-year old New Zealand hottie?

And in the immortal closing wurdz of Leesur (GottaSki) in the Funny pages thread that was laid to rest:

"No hangover here"

Such an inspiration! Quite a goal for us all to strive for Lessur! Yes, we now have a new standard of eggzallence to stumble towardz, or crawl towardz in some cases, for this holiday season. :)

OK, for those so encumbered by the seeking of konwledge on the post card eggschange proejct, I started a thread for it here:

Or maybe you got a wasp with celiac :):o

nah, it acted like it was somewhat drunk.

It's like a mini cross-species celiac quiz! :wacko:

And the answer is .. ... ..[hey what's a King gotta do to get a drumroll around here??????] [Not to be confused w/ a durum roll]

. . . ....Ataxia!

I might be inclined to appoint a Royal Commission . .. . .hmmm .. .the Wasp Ataxia Special Project . .. .yeah, I did it.

Is it the poison or the zapper or a uniquely ratioed combo?

Is the ataxia wasp in throes of death or a superwasp survivor, stumblecrawling away to find a supermate, rendering future EMF attacks innocuous? Yours may be the wasp world's Cornelius in Planet of the Wasps . .. ..

Gotta launch these things early in an administration. Not sure when lame duck/drunk wasp status begins.

And just how lame IS a duck if it's just his foot? Am I missing a wing-only connotation?

Yes. Clearly a lame duck has either a left- or right-wing injury.

My gawd, I am so cool and hip and hot I am afraid to post a pic as my av due to the reactions it may engender. And I am espoused to a super sugar daddy which allows me to spend my days on idle frivolities (and keeping my trophy-wife bod in shape :P (my night-times are of course committed). Think Hugh Hefner and a cool hip playboy bunny (Ewwwww :unsure: ); think.....

:huh:

I am having a hard time coming up with another example; Silvio Berlusconi (no, the sod's a carouser) Jacques Chirac (nah, they're both too corrupt) -- well, anyway...... I is kept (for the moment).

Yes. Clearly a lame duck has either a left- or right-wing injury.

A lame duck can be a very precarious state, whether on the left or the right :rolleyes:

can you tell i'm tired :lol:

At any rate, i did something stupid... i left some water on to boil as a makeshift humidifyer right? It was fine when i last checked on it (like 20mins ago) right? then i start to hear this pop pop sound. I get up and the enamal (which was already weak to begin with) poping off all over the place. Luckily, my pot of soup in front of it had a massive lid on it completely sealing it from the poping enamil going into it. Lucky lucky, i would have had to toss it out otherwise (the lid is about a half an inch bigger than the pot is so it goes over a bit on all sides and it also lips upward, normally this lid is used in a fry pan).

The pot was already ruined by the dishwasher (took the main layer off, leaving a rough texture). So no big loss there (i should still be able to use it as a water pan though, its cast iorn underneath kinda looks like the pot in this http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?SKU=40568744&RN=816& (actually my bigger one is exactly like that :lol: )).

soooo glad for the lid on the soup, else i'd be without dinner right now (of course i took the lid off after i fixed the other pots issues just to check :blink: ).

Lesson learned.

I got a little humidifier at CVS for travelling, it's a sound-wave humidifier, no filtration,

you just tip a bottle of water into it and turn it on. It has a little adapter thingy for the

bottles of water. I think it's fantastic. Plus, no boiling! :P

Not my choice of parting words for the best thread ever -- and no promises of lack of holiday hangy-overs here.

Hey Peter -- you there? It seems we need another edit...we need a link to this thread at the end of the ORIGINAL Silly Pages.

Personally, I do not like those. They leave a film on everything in the room. I do not know what that film is, but I sure rather not breath it in. I much perfer cool mist, even if you have to keep up with the wicking filter.

It does give a cool mist, and I know the film of which you speak- this one has not

done that. I am, however, giving it filtered water. So, I dunno.

    • Good luck with all the testing.  You are doing the right thing by telling your son to gluten up!  Buy him one of those gluteny cakes at a bakery...if that doesn't spike his numbers, nothing will. 
    • Thank you for this response! You are right, I'm sure. My sed rate was normal. My c reactive protein was 6, which is high. My platelets were a bit elevated and I was slightly anemic. I am going tomorrow for another endoscopy. I know that these things could be related to other things... but I'm thinking there is a change they are all still related to celiac (I'm hoping). What other autoimmune disease do you have, if you don't mind me asking?
    • HIV doesn't turn off the immune system, it destroys it to the point where most people die from complications that arise from having no immune system.  Some end up with pneumonia or cancer, which takes their life. It is pretty amazing the treatments they have developed for it, to slow it down and give people longer, quality time. I am perfectly content with the gluten free diet as my treatment and honestly, if they developed a pill that they claimed would make it possible for people to eat gluten again, I doubt I would. I could not bring myself to eat a food that I am genetically programmed to not be able to digest and that totally pisses off my immune system.  However, if they succeed with some of the meds they are working on now, one of which I posted about earlier this summer, I would take those.  They are working on things that modulate the immune system down so inflammation can be tamed down further.  Even with a strict gluten-free diet, there will always be more inflammation for us than for those who don't have AI diseases.  I do everything possible to tame it down myself but it isn't in the normal range.....yet. Long term inflammation can kill you so something along those lines would be welcome.  You would still have to eat gluten-free but the disease activity would be calmed down.  This is a drug that targets those with lupus and maybe Sjogren's....which I have.  There are possibilities for other AI diseases from that!
    • Hi Anns and welcome   Do you think that I am on the right course to see if I possibly have Celiac?   Yes, it was smart of you to consider the possibility and its good that you've had the tests. Both the aneamia and bloating are symptoms, although of course they may be unrelated. Best way to find out is to check as you are doing.   Can this develope later in life ( I'm 46)?   Yes, I think its most common discovered later rather than sooner.   I ate a meal last night that was gluten free and did not feel like nearly as bloated after eating, would I notice a change that quickly?  Thanksort for your input.   Yes, I noticed far less of a heavy feeling after eating very soon after diet changes. However you would be better off not trying gluten free just yet. I collected some links and other stuff here, it may be of use: Your best bet is to eat as normal and wait for the test results. If your doctors eliminate celiac there's nothing to stop you excluding gluten at that point to see if it helps. But before then you need to keep eating it to ensure an accurate diagnosis.  All the best  
    • Well HIV undermines the entire immune system as I understand it, so that would be akin to using dynamite to put out a kitchen fire! There is some work going on to try and retrain the immune system to not see gluten as a threat though: http://www.immusant.com/docs/ImmusanT DDW Data Release FINAL 5.24.16.pdf  I'm laughing as I write this imagining the conversations you could have with people as you tell them you'd like to contract HIV so that you can eat a decent sandwich
