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

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
