"The Other Woman"  is a great name for a sailing blog.  I have seen one or two boats by that name.  A gentleman's ship is truely  a mistress.  Um, maybe a good thing? :rolleyes:

Would the other man be Celiac.com then? :D

That means all of our wonderful Psilly men are "The Other Man"

You guys are so nice!

 

Here's my first post:

 

The usual thing is to start out with "test test" or "hello world" or some other mundanity, but I'm  not up for that.  I'm just gonna hold my nose and jump and hope it all turns out alright.

 

I suppose the first order of business is to point out the the first woman is a sailboat.  I know, there went 90% of my readers but they would have figured it out anyway the first time I posted a picture of "her naked bottom" and they realized:

  1. We scraped the bottom paint off the boat and she isn't too stimulating when naked and 
  2. The humans involved are actually plump and middle aged.  And will likely never appear naked in this blog.

Ok, so no nudity and we're all happy about it. Then.......what's the point?

 

Well...I want to track my journey.  Part of this will be the sailing thing and part will be whatever sort of random thing seems to be connected with the sailing.  Since we aren't yet on the water much of the early blogging will be random and probably introspective. 

 

I do want to make this fun for anyone reading, partly because I like to be entertaining, and partly because I'm just an ordinary person who had this wacky idea that she could dump her life and do something completely different.  I want other ordinary people to realize that they can do the same.

 

I hope you'll keep reading, and I really hope I'll keep posting.

This is the 3rd time I've written this post and lost it before I sent it! You better not stop blogging or posting because this is NOT ordinary (it's awesome like you)! It's well written & hilarious. How many women get to ride on top of the mistress with their hubbies?

(((Hugs)))

Okey dokey.  Giant chickens have been stuffed into the freezer.  "Ha!" I here you say.  "Just how giant could they be? They're just chickens!"

 

Well, my skeptical friends, the roosters were so big that they had to go into 2.5 gallon bags and my freezer barely closes. The hen is crammed into a gallon bag that can't possibly close but she's in the frig and we'll roast her on Tuesday.

 

Sadly I have no scale so I don't know how much they weigh, but they are hefty and pretty much fat free.

These guys were destined for the table from the start.  They're bred to grow to (beyond) full size in three months and they aren't really healthy.  The hen's liver was already in poor shape and the boys had these weird, long hearts.  Their joints just can't handle the weight of the birds and they would waddle a few steps then sit down.  Well, plump down.  It was kind of a controlled fall.

 

I decided that my options were to either give up meat entirely or participate in the process that brings it to my table.  Harsh, and I don't like it, but I'm not yet willing to become a vegetarian.

Good morning, and welcome to August.

Back in the day, Nikki would do a first day of the month post, but she hasn't been here in months.

Woke up this morning to find (well, Jacquie found it first) a "present" on the bedroom floor. One of the cats caught and killed a mouse and left us the trophy. Riley had been after something in the kitchen recently, and we set out some traps after finding evidence, but the traps remain unsprung.

I am wondering if there is a correlation between cats and celiac/NCGI??

My cat died on Friday, under 10, no obvious reason :(

She was a useless mouser. I once saw a mouse run between her front paws, and she didn't even notice.

There do seem to be an awful lot of them about here.

This seems totally beyond possibility, but you made my brain go out of normalcy. WTH?

Cats and celiac disease.

I probably had celiac disease at a low level for decades before it flared up big time in August of 1995. Diagnosis did not come until July of 2000--five years of celiac hell.

On July 1, 1995, our first cat adopted us. A long story, but he was lost and wandering and we took him in--intending it to be temporary until we could find where he belonged. It turned out he belonged with us. :wub:

But now I wonder: was the timing a coincidence, or was there more to it?

And even if it is so, it won't change my love of the cats who allow us to share their home.

Hahaha, always glad help freak someone's head just a little bit, especially if it involves cats.

Ours was a rescue cat, who I knew was coming to live with us as soon as I saw her little face on the website.

I hope some new cats choose us soon....

Took our puppy to the vet last night... he has been having problems walking and stuff... he is 14 or 15 years old (was a rescue so do not know)... dx was arthritis... not sure how much time we have left with him... our son has only known life with our puppy around (we got him the year before our son was born). Gonna be rough when the time comes. BUT for now, got him some narcotics to try.

I'm so sorry to hear about the loss and illness of Psilly pets.....they have been a HUGE part of our lives in Psillyville, right from the start.....  ..Dogs, cats.....even a yeti....and I do wonder how he is faring -- do yetis get osteoarthritis?....Do they get taken in as strays, and put up for adoption?....Quite a commitment, that...        :rolleyes:

Well the puppy is acting a bit younger on the narcotics. At least he is not falling over when going potty and can shake himself out again. So I guess that means it was a good call on the drugs for now.

Definitely no cat involved with the Celiac here, I've been terribly allergic since birth.

 

 

As to the yeti, he's sore and creaky but moving better then before. ;)

http://southbrunswick.patch.com/groups/police-and-fire/p/police-respond-to-mvc-after-man-refuses-to-remove-pas250cc0dc13#comment_6446963

 

At about noon on Feb. 2, South Brunswick Police responded to the MVC facility on Route 130 in Dayton on reports that a man renewing his driver's license refused to remove the pasta strainer he was wearing on his head for his license photo, according to a police report.

 

According to the police report, an MVC employee told Williams that it's against policy for people to wear head coverings in license photos, unless it's for religious reasons. 

"As a Pastafarian, I believe the universe was created by a Flying Spaghetti Monster," Williams said. "The strainer is a showing of my devoutness to the religion."

    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.  
    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
