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.

    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.
