Yup, you get the good stuff...hope it hold until it gets to the coast. Sadly, we might just get a dusting. Snow day tomorrow for YOU! :D

We usually do not... we usually get nothing here due to the small mountain valley we are in.

Ohhhh Gnikkers, hugs from me too. Screw that boiler tho, yah?

Russel (hehe) awesome that the work hrs didn't change. How awful/worrisome that something as potentially impactful on your ds could be so cavalierly changed.

Hugs Nikki :wub: ... I have ordered a professional baking pan for donuts, it's heavy enough to classify as self-defense weapon. If you need it, it's yours. Just stress management, you know... :ph34r:

I've been working on my five year plan - whaddaya'll think?

Plan A. Work for five years, save money, sell the house, move to Ecuador and retire.

Plan B. Work for five years, save money, sell the house, spend several years sailing the South Pacific, around South America, and the Carribean with the pirate. Then move to Ecuador and retire.

Good luck with all of that....then come a visit us on the "better" coast. Sail to us...it can be done.

We're in the South Pacific ;)

...... well, maybe the south South Pacific.

You could always talk to my niece. She did that for several years, well not the retire part but sailed the South Pacific with her 'pirate' whilst operating her wholesaling business. Put into Fiji, fly off and come back; put into Papeete, fly off and come back; put into Pango Pango, fly off, come back. Had all the ITC equipment on the boat. Not sure if she got tired of the boat or the pirate :rolleyes:

NZ is on the to-do list. It'd be in about 7 years. Plan to go hiking with me Shroomie.

Heck, by that time it would have to be somewhere my walking frame would go :blink::lol:

Certainly not the Milford Track, which you really SHOULD consider doing. And maybe the Abel Tasman, and the Heaphy, and the Hollyford......

Why don't y'all just come visit us when we hit the Carribean? Or Hawaii? Or Fiji?

Been doing more numbers on this. Totally doable as long as the housing market continues to rise.

Pirate says we can go around South America from left to right, but not the other way (prevailing winds and tides and all that). Once we're on that side, the only way back is through the Panama Canal.

    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
    • I have been on a gluten-free diet for exactly one-year. During that time, I have had no stomach issues or problems when I inadvertently ingested gluten. The other day, I had GI discomfort (no vomiting or diarrhea) and my blood pressure spiked t0 200/98 (normally 119/75). As my GI discomfort subsided, my pressure crept back to normal. This took about 16-hours. I know that I ingested something with gluten, which I had thought was gluten-free.  It never bothered me before. Should I expect that the longer I'm gluten-free, the more susceptible I will be to having a pronounced reaction to inadvertent gluten exposure? Has anyone else had similar experiences with blood pressure spikes?
    • If this is helpful: My local public library had a copy of Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.  There is a Facebook group, I believe it is easily found by searching SCD Diet, and it's a closed group.  If you go directly to the official website of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, there's lots of information for free available, including the basics about the intro diet and beyond.  I would go to the original source of this diet rather than go to other groups/books who have perhaps veered away from Elaine Gottschall's fundamentals. Best wishes to you!
    • AdrienJ, thank you so much! I dream of traveling more one day. I have spondylitis too. I'm so glad that a gluten free and casein free diet is helping you feel your best!
    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
