More great weather, and the first barbecue of the season is grilling as I type. Corn on the cob and hamburgers with Udi's gluten-free buns.  :)

My 5 week old poults were going at it hard.  I tried separating them, tried detention, nothing would deter them so I resolved to listen to the squeals and let them work it out.  But I hadn't figured on Mama.

 

One of the poults was raised by my silkie, so she listened to about 5 minutes of squealing and had had enough.  She marched her tiny little butt over there and gave those miscreants what for!

 

Dunno what she said, but we had peace for most of the afternoon.  Late in the day another row started and lasted about 45 seconds.  She charged the two like a little bull and they split up immediately yelling "We weren't doing anything!"

 

The other chickens, of course, just circled up chanting "Fight! Fight! Fight!"   Rotten girls.

Jess's bird children sound just like human children.  We let them try to work it out, but when we get tired of listening to the fighting, we have to separate them!

 

Victor/Vincent - I don't know much about anime/computer characters but I do think the women are supposed to have a lot less clothing and a lot bigger chest!  :o

 

Just watching Dr Travis on Rachael Ray.  He said we should be checking a guy's ring finger.  If the ring finger is longer than the pointer......he is considered "well endowed" (that was the scientific medical term he used).

I had a lovely visit from 2 birds clinging to our family room outdoor screen. They were adorable! I felt like they were welcoming me as I've been watching the seasons change from my couch. I plan on that changing soon!  :) Gotta get Superman to BBQ. He has online homework for the new job before his start date.

If your pics have less clothes, you will need to spray tan them? Really, that man had a few too many clothes, also. All he really needs is a strategically placed sash.

I just wanted to wish all of my dear sweet psillies (and their family members) a healthy and Happy Mother's Day!!! May you be surrounded by everyone you love most dearly.

 

We're celebrating today and having dinner with Tony at Ruth Cris's Steakhouse in Providence. Superman bought me a lovely orchid plant (I received orchids on my first mother's day). I am one blessed lady. Wishing the same blessings to you all.

 

Love,  :wub:  :wub:  :wub:

Loey

 

P.S. Tony bought me a gorgeous necklace and it was the warmest visit with him I remember in a long time. I thinks he's coming back to us a little  :D  :D

Man... check it... well worth the six or 7 mins this will take!

We’ve all gotten used to those ubiquitous pump-topping TV screens that scream inane chatter at us while we wait for our hilariously overpriced gas to top up. But what if one of them started talking directly at you? Such is the nature of this "Tonight Show" prank, in which a talking head on a gas pump screen charmingly bantered with Will...

Hello my dearest Psillies.

 

Well my wonderful Mother's Day dinner cross-contaminated me. I now have wrap-around pain :(  and other than going back to eating only brown rice I've forgotten what measures I can take to help alleviate the pain. In the past I always had my pain killers and have NO desire to ever go down that path again. I've been using a heating pad (either on my back, abdomen, or between my legs). The good news is that it's dwarfing my ladyparts issue (still there but I think it's improving). The dinner was worth the suffering but my boys had too many gluten laden appetizers and three bread plates at the table so I'm not surprised I was glutened. I also splurged and had a champagne cocktail. I don't think they were too careful when they wrapped my leftovers. Oy Vey!  I just finished a 5 day course of Keflex and am taking 100 billion mg of probiotic detox 3xdy.

 

Any tips are greatly appreciated. I went back to the main Forum page and did some searching but I don't have much patience and you, dear psillies, know everything.

 

Love (and thanks),

Loey

 

P.S. I hope I didn't offend anyone on my email list with the Sandy Hook letter.

Loey- Charcoal! Worked like magic for me last time I got glutened. And I used

digestive enzymes for the next week to help with getting my other foods absorbed.

And Yogi Peach Detox tea, which happens to be quite tasty as well. Watch out with

the charcoal- it should be taken away from any other supplement or food.

Hi Lo:). Hope yer feelin better. If I get cc'd, I am more comfortable if I keep a little starchy food in my stomach. Hot tea, lots of rest. Beyond that, it just has to pass.

No worries from me, I'm pretty hard to offend ;)

Hi Sillies!!

I've never tried the charcoal, but a gastro once suggested it to me. Glad it helps, Bun:)

:'( she certainly was, Pads. I haven't been around and now I want to go and read and savor her amazing words all over this forum....

I am stunned and also saddened to know that I am here too late to communicate with her....the card i purchased was never sent, as is my very bad habit. What a gal she was.....did anyone ever get the chance to meet her, when she came to the states?

Shroomie :(

I, too am bad about cards, but fortunately I was on top of it this time. I was thinking about searching the thread for Shroomie-isms to post but just don't have the energy right now. Sounds like a job for Jya-nut, but haven't seen her around for some time.

    • Second Panel has come back...advice?
      Update!  I went to my follow up with my gastro. He's hesitant to diagnose celiac without an endo, but said he will redo the blood work after I'm several months gluten free. My DGP IGA should drop after being gluten free, right? This could confirm the suspicion? I know the TTG levels drop, but want to be sure the DGP also drops on the diet.  Thanks! I've already replaced all kitchen equipment and pantry/fridge items. Early on I didn't realize the potential for cross contamination in restaurants. Now I do, so eating out has been put on halt for a bit. 
    • does your diet have to be like a perfection?
      Yes.  You have to be 100% gluten abstinent when you have Celiac Disorder.  It gets easier to be gluten abstinent, not because you get used to it but because of the negative effects that ingesting gluten causes when you accidentally eat something with gluten.  Nothing tastes good enough to go through a glutening.  As your system heals it will become less tolerant of your occasional lapses into gluten consumption--accidental or otherwise. You have to take this seriously.  You get used to it and there are some wonderful gluten-free options out there.  But you can't go back to gluten and stay healthy.  It just doesn't work that way. Good luck.
    • does your diet have to be like a perfection?
      I  think you need to watch where you get your medical info!    Of course you can't introduce gluten back in. And  of course you have to be strictly gluten-free and not intentionally eat gluten.   "The gluten-free diet is a lifetime requirement. Eating any gluten, no matter how small an amount, can damage your intestine. This is true for anyone with the disease, including people who do not have noticeable symptoms. It can take weeks for antibody levels (indicating intestinal damage) to normalize after a person with celiac disease has consumed gluten. Depending on a person’s age at diagnosis, some problems, such as delayed growth and tooth discoloration, may not improve. The gluten-free diet requires a completely new approach to eating. You have to be extremely careful about what you buy for lunch at school or work, eat at cocktail parties, or grab from the refrigerator for a midnight snack. Eating out and traveling can be challenging as you learn to scrutinize menus for foods with gluten, question the waiter or chef about possible hidden sources of gluten, and search for safe options at airports or on the road. However, with practice, identifying potential sources of gluten becomes second nature and you’ll learn to recognize which foods are safe and which are off limits." http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/living-with-celiac/guide/treatment    
    • does your diet have to be like a perfection?
      FlowerQueen is correct.  Once diagnosed with celiac disease, you should never consume gluten again without the risk of becoming very ill (osteoporosis, liver damage, lymphoma, etc.).   I think everyone has trouble in the beginning sticking to a gluten free diet.  That's because gluten is in so many processed foods.  It takes time to learn to read labels, make a safe kitchen, learn to eat out, get your family to support you.  I would advise reading out Newbie 101 section under "Coping" within this forum.  It contains valuable tips for becoming gluten free.  Also, check out the University of Chicago's celiac website to learn about celiac disease.  Knowledge is power!   Everyone has different degrees of damage, but I would say that learning the diet and healing can take months to a year or longer.  The good news is that this is an autoimmune disorder that is treatable -- avoid gluten at all costs!   Take care and welcome to the forum!   
    • does your diet have to be like a perfection?
      Not sure what you mean by perfecting your diet? Do you mean accidentally eating gluten?   As to re-introducing gluten again, if you have celiac disease, please DO NOT ever re-introduce gluten again. It's an auto-immune disease, not a food intolerance. It will damage your gut again if you do.  Hope this helps.
