Still crossing everything that you and Mark will make it to the party. I'll be the one who's overdressed. It's a casual party but I am the hostess. :D :D

Love you!

Loey

P.S. I'm disappointed that Vince is in Cranbury (next to Plainsboro) this weekend and can't make the party. If I still lived in Plainsboro I'd be in the congregation beaming at our very multi-talented fella! I only wish I could have made it. :(

I did not mean to post this twice. OOPS!

Yeah!

Well, no miracle chickie resurection, but Re-peep hatched and seems fine. I'll listen to the last egg today, and if it's not peeping, out it goes. That way Dovey can get up and follow the kid around if she decides to leave the nest.

Will continue to say prayers. I think Re-peep is pretty miraculous!

Love,

Loey

Want to hear something funy? Come hear me attempt to preach to day! LOL I better at least go take a shower first. :)

I would have been there in a minute if I still lived in Plainsboro. You've all been in my thoughts and prayers. Would love to see your sermon if you want to IM or email me. Kristi and Timothy must be so proud of you and so are all us of psillies!!!!!!!!!!

Hugs,

Loey

I was thinking that, too!

I need some serious help! I can't stop eating peanut brittle! smiley-animal0025.gif

I can't stop eating period! Superman says if it's not nailed down it finds it's way into my stomach. At least it's gluten-free and Celiac is back on track. Enjoy that peanut brittle, dear friend!

Love,

Loey

Sorry about the cikvebs Jestgar.

OK, since Jest brought up resurrections stories, got to throw a couple real ones in. Too late for Vinchants sermon though, sorry.

Ok, so many years ago, on a ground far away, I had cabin on a rise in a ravine between two steep hills. Wild white trilliums bloomed in the yard in the spring. I may have seen a Rocky Mountain Combine once too. And some May apples liked the quiet of the dark woods as well. There was a little rocky stream that flowed past the cabin on the left side. Large rock cliffs lined the stream and grape vines hung from the walnut trees in the woods. Place was called Bear Wallow Hollow. But man moved in and drilled a well.

One day I left the cabin via the front door to check on the well drilling. I stepped down and felt a squish just as I saw a huge brown caterpillar under my descending right boot. This guy was five inches long or more and as big around as a super-sized Cuban cigar. I didn't smash his head but his body was kind of paper-thin. A big squish of green goo came out his back end on the step. I figured he was a goner for sure.

The feller drilling the well was done and got in his truck to leave. He backed up and stopped his rear wheel on a little furry kitten that as all of 6 inches long. I yelled at him to stop and he did, right on top the kitten. There was just a little head and two tiny front legs sticking out out from under the rear tire. He pulled forward and stopped. The kitten was particularly flat. We both stared at it for a little bit and figured it was a goner. But danged if it didn't get up and start wobbling around the grass. Falling over several times but walking. After a few minutes it acted like nothing had happened!

When I got back to the cabin the caterpillar was gone. It had crawled off the step and made a hasty retreat. I don't know how it survived a 200 lb man's boot stepping on it and squishing out it's innards but it did. I figure it was mostly half digested leaves and such that came out.

Well, that's all I got.

Wolfie, get better soon. Take it easy on your stiches!

Jestgur, can find away to stretch your back, maybe hanging from a door frame or something? If you hang from a door frame and wiggle a bit gravity will help stretch out the discs in your back and that can help things get back in alignment.

Looey, good to hear you are doing better and back gluten-free. Have a great time at your outing! :)

and Happy New Year to everyone! :D

Great story, Gee Eff--glad those critters had a happy ending :D

Had a mole removed once but they cauterized it--no stitches. Had 3 ugly looking "moles" on me forehead that were actually some other harmless (but ugly) growth--the derm froze those off :unsure: . Good to get those things taken care of ;)

Well, Happy New Year all :) We are going to friends' house later to ring in the new year--bringing my homemade cheesecake w/pecan shortbread crust and chocolate ganach topping. B)

LOVED the squished kitten and catterpillar tales, Geee-Eff...! The will to live, the will to live..... :) .. . . .

Jestgur, can find away to stretch your back, maybe hanging from a door frame or something? If you hang from a door frame and wiggle a bit gravity will help stretch out the discs in your back and that can help things get back in alignment.

This, whilst being excellent advice, somehow strikes me at the same time as being SOOO funny..... :lol: Just picturing Jyesss vaulting up, hooking her legs around the top of a door frame, gracefully hanging downward...... :lol:

...Something I may try this evening......"tis New Years eve, after all......

The wanna be librarian in me says Mexican with a cross reference to pasta.

Make sure Will gets a pic!! :D

The hanging in the doorway reminds me of an old Andy Griffith show where Barney was deemed too short for his job (new rules) so they tried stretching him by putting his head in a harness and hanging him in a doorway. Hee!

Novel therapy seen this summer: hubs in harness (no, psillies, this is not something kinky :P ) with the physical therapist hanging on the straps trying to rein him in. Like a draught horse pulling a (small) cart loaded with rocks. Now he's in massage therapy for his neck and shoulders :lol:

M decided it should be in pasta with other lasagnas. I thought about making copies and putting recipes in more than one place but ......too much work. I got some cute binders and the only recipes in these will be the ones I know we like. A pocket page in each section for recipes I want to try but haven't earned the right to be in the book.

I had a friend that defrosted a kitten. A feral cat had 2 kittens somehow on top of the wood pile - in a window box over it or something. the kittens fell down into the wood pile and got stuck. My friend came home and realized something had happened. She dug them out and one was frozen & dead. She brought them in and warmed them up and the dead one came back to life. She was always a bit uncoordinated and odd but a nice house cat.

Ok, when you put it in that context it makes perfect sense. :rolleyes:

    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet
