Thanks for the neat article Shroomie. It sounds like CC is getting pretty creative with the rebound effort. Art projects and shipping container malls. Really sounds kind of fun. So now we know wher you hang ot on Friday nights, the Smash Palace?

"Smash Palace, selling boutique beers, is a mobile pub made from two buses, scaffolding and a shipping container."

Today, my yoga teacher was trying to explain something and used an anaolgy of 2 pieces of bread and the meat in the sandwich (don't ask, it didn't make that much sense to me either). She said sometimes someone says they don't eat meat. I piped up with "I don't eat bread!" She said think of a letttuce leaf sandwich. <_<

I tried :)

On a latex related note, I'm healing! Yay! Still have outlines that are visable, but its going away. I'm letting it clear up on its own instead of taking something for it. I can't tell ya how much i wanna take a backscratcher to it sometimes.

Underneath my kitchen windows I have a big bricked in planter with my herb garden contained therein. (I know, it's from my days of legal writing :P ) In that herb garden grow most of my herbs except parsley and cilantro. This includes rosemary, sage, and an enormous forest of dill waving its tall yellow flowers at me through the windows, blocking my view of the ocean, nagging me to come and whack it. (This is a task my late sister always performed when she came on a busman's holiday during Novembers in times of yore so I always left it for her.) So, of course, not this year :( :(

Hubs, the inveterate (hahaha!!) gardener in the family, says in all seriousness whilst perusing a recipe online that he was proposing to prepare: "What a pity we don't have any dill in the garden" Me: "Oh, if you look really, really hard, I think you might find some out there." Hubs: "What does dill look like, anyway??" Aha, the root of the problem!!! I shoulda trained him better, but he's doing really well on the chefing front :D as long as he can recognize what he's putting in :P

Poison oak, no -- we don't have none of that hereabouts (big reason for leaving CA - for both of us; couldn't handle the prednisone any more :unsure: ). And I wouldn't know what hemlock looks like, come to thinkofit. But I don't think we have that either - that is SO old world :D

Captured from the chemical allergies thread:

From my understanding, different rubbers are used for different things.

That's my understanding also, Wolfie. :D

Re-peep seems to be past the fragile stage. She follows Mom around instead of standing in one place crying, and she's successfully put herself to bed three nights in a row. Guess I can stop fussing now. :rolleyes:

In other news, after watching that 'Hoarders' show I've started trying to clear crap out of my house again.It's not that I have a lot, I just don't see the reason for keeping stuff I'm not using.

We'll see how long this phase lasts.. :ph34r: :ph34r: :ph34r:

Heard from the college boy last night. His chocolate milk kit Xmas gift was a big hit. They only have plain milk at his frat. I got him this type of bottle and Nesquik chocolate syrup.

The old server was shut down 24 hours ago. The new one was up a few hours later, but since the IP address changed, your DNS cache might remember the old one for a while. There can be deeper issues. My ISP's default DNS server, preprogrammed into the modem, is out of date and no longer refreshed regularly. I had to tweak my router to use an explicit DNS server by IP address (4.2.2.2).

I figured that might be what you did since my work machine could reach you (dif ISP) and my home could not. Thats why did not bug anyone in the admin section :)

Our DOC (Dept. of Conservation) controls a lot of parkland, and thoughtfully 'maintains' shelter huts for trampers and backpackers to take cover from our sometimes wildly unpredictable and inclement weather (howling gales and major downpours in the last week at height of summer hols.) Someone with a sense of humor has been visiting the huts this summer, posting signs. Here's one:

Warning: children conceived in this hut are the property of the Department of Conservation.

:unsure:

And another:

We would have enough money to restore this hut if you would stop voting for that dork John Key!

:lol:

You guys seriously have to watch the video I shared on FBook, it's so funny it made me cry.

That's never happened before. Might have something to do with the flu, but hey....

It really is hysterical. I sent it to the theatre people - they're doing Les Mis this season

    • 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

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
