I am a very lucky girl. My honey has stood by my side...carried me when I could not walk and tonight brought me too many roses to count....he has never been big on floral displays in the past - yep he made me cry.

He really is a honey. How lovely it is to be loved and apppreciated by someone for who you are and not for what you are able or unable to do. :wub: And you deserve those uncountable roses -- do not even try to quantify them!

I'd say you are both very lucky, dear girl!! ;) Happy Val's Day.

I would tell you all about my sweet Irishman and all he has done for me, but I will instead, just point you to the Gluten Dude's blog in the coming days. My love letter to the hubs should show up there shortly.He is my "Anam Cara", a Celtic phrase meaning ( roughly) "my friend of the soul --one who always beholds your light and beauty and accepts you for who you truly are."

Yup, we've got ourselves some very good men. Enjoy your roses.

Last year I purchased a special cake pan on the clearance shelf -- it creates a heat shaped hole to fill so that when sliced it creates an edible Valentine. Followed their suggestion for the filling even though I knew it could not possibly firm up -- yesterday was busy so I made the cake early in the morning and left it in the frig to firm up....

Then had a very tough day...ran home to pack up to slices for my parents -- and got the best laugh when I was right about the filling --- more often life is just plain messy and more fun!

Hope you all had a nice Valentines Day -- I completely understand those that could care less. The main reason I've never recieved red roses on valentine's day is my wonderful husband chose that particular day to break up with me 29 years ago -- I never much cared for the day after that - this year is different because I am finally finding health -- we celebrate everything!!!

Oh -- a friend of mine gave me a great idea -- use a funnel to shape rice crispie treats and wrap with foil -- huge "kisses" make great gifts -- everyone loved them...

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
