In Topic: Hoping To Meet People Like Me

16 March 2009 - 12:29 PM

As I have not been on here in a long time it is still nice to see some of the oldsters like me on here. Jersey Angel, you are looking quite furry today.

Anyway, I am a writer, artist, photographer and I can relate to how you feel. They certainly were not much as friends go, were they? I didn't lose my friends, we still talk by phone. The thing is about this disease you will feel cheated. Where I am there is very little places to go eat for us folks. So my friends go out and have fun and I, stay home and paint and write. Although I consider what I am doing a much more admirable pursuit than swilling alcohol, there are some days I wish I could have dinner with my friends.

I never eat at their places because of cross contamination issues. I also don't want to put them out to attempt to make anything special for me, so I don't go. The thing is until someone has the disease they just don't get it about the disease and I wouldn't expect them to. So in the meantime you have us, we are not the same and as we live in different places and countries it makes it difficult to hang out. We just have to make our own world.

In Topic: Any Irish Out There?

Hi. OK. Maiden name; Seymour. Grandmother: Helen Long. Great-grandmother: Molly Ahearn. Any relatives out there? My question is this- I eat corned beef and cabbage every St. Pat's day, but is it authentic?? I have a feeling that people in Ireland don't. Anyone know?


When I was in Ireland corned beef and cabbage was rarely on the menu. I think I saw it once and that was in Dublin.

But I can say I had absolutely no problems eating in Ireland and I love Ireland for many reasons.

In Topic: Glutened By Kraft Bar-b-q Sauce

I would like to say that I do not touch the BBQ sauces because a great deal of time they have Barley Malt in them which is a gluten.

I have never been made sick by Kraft and I am so sensitive that miniscule crumbs devastate me. I would definitely suggest calling the company.
