:o OOPS!!!!! Thought the cops were women!!!!! My bad . . . Okay -- no Gay in him --- trust me on this one ;)

So, now that we have THAT straightened out . . . no pun intended :P . . . . on to the next problem:

I think that we need to have a "gaited" community, possibly. OR, we could have an official Rachelville tour guide -- and tours are only conducted ONE WEEKEND per month . . . so that our lives are not interrupted. THEN, on that weekend, we could all wear our official t-shirts proudly. And they would NOT be for sale to anyone who is not a member of R'ville. Those people would have to get the previously stated, "Someone I love visited Rachelville and all I got was this t-shirt" . . . . . that would keep in check!!!!!

Wellll....so far the cops are only male, because as of now we have about five men in R-ville, and they are all married, so we NEED the beautiful male cops..... ;) you know, for the single gals....

So, I take it everyone in R'ville except for Vincent is going to be constantly trying to get arrested?! And I didn't even see the pics to figure that one out!

I JAYWALKED THROUGH TOWN TODAY!!!! TWICE!! :ph34r::P

I currently have Bob's and haven't had a reaction but I know other people have. I think Authentic Foods is on a dedicated line but it is very expensive.

I use Bob's, but my celiac disease is not as sensitive as some..

:o:o:o Does this mean my new title is "Town Hussey"?

ROFLMAO OH GAWD!!!!! :lol:

Um, good idea, we need a ship-builder for our sea-faring buddies, but, is your husband mildly gay - - being distracted by the cops and all......just checking..... ;)

ROFLMAO!!

OMG....I fully busted my gut reading that!!

Susan, you are on a roll today girl, I havent stopped laughing since I signed on...

OK...premature post (Susan....such a bad influence) back to more reading...got tears coming out from all the laughter! :lol:

Listen, my children, and you shall hear. Just because I'm Town Matriarch, and even though I can't see that town trophy, doesn't mean that I haven't . . . uh . . . been young. You'd be surprised at the tales old folks could tell. Remember that, the next time you see an old lady in her rocking chair, talking to herself and laughing. You may think it's senility, but I'm here to tell you it ain't necessarily so!

LMAO

Can I leave Jim at home when I move to R-ville? Well, as a retired airline pilot, he may be usefull.

He now makes beautiful collector boxes out of exotic wood. Perhaps he can make the boxes that we put our collection of altoids. :)

:o:o:o Does this mean my new title is "Town Hussey"?

:o

I dont think we have enuff men in R-Ville at this time....will consider the "hussey" title when we have more than 3 men in our town. :D

The way its looking the R-Ville residents will have the freshest breath around (thanks to the altoids) but thats about it.

possibly but that may depend on the OUTFIT your create for yourself..... ;)

ROFLMAO!!

Ummm...yes...we've already had the dicussion (about 100 pages back) about "covering up" in Rachelville....I think everyone was in agreement that clothes must be worn at all times.

Remember...this is when some people thought I might be a hippie nudist or something. :o

All I wanted to do was wear my overalls and tank tops instead of long Amish dresses. :rolleyes:

Yeah, but once the word gets out how talented us Rachelvillettes are with our Altoids, pretty soon there will be population explosion and for every one woman, there will be 20 men......

Does that mean I will have to give a step by step demonstration on the proper technique?

Just think ladies, we will have more men than we will know what to do with!

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

Cissie, you rock!

You remind me of my neighbour across the street. She's 70 years old, and is the biggest Pink Floyd fan going! Up until 2 years ago, she drove around in a red sports car (until gas got too expensive!). She has told me stories ranging from trying to survive the Blitz in London in the 40's right through Hippieville in the 60's and going to see every rock band she could in the 70's, 80's and 90's......

It blows my mind that she is the same age as my mother! My 12 yr old Eileen thinks she's the greatest thing since sliced bread.....

we are all very funny today!! spinaching all over the place!! :lol::lol::lol:

and Karen how I DO look forward to these 20 men for every woman......what joy! and they will all be beautiful, kind-hearted, altruistic, brilliant, morally upright and wildly funny DOG LOVERS!! (okay maybe not all, I"ll just need the one when I find him). ;)

I"m going to sit at Cissie's knee as she's laughing madly to herself in her rocker and make her tell me what she's going over in her brain..... :D

Hi,

Just visiting Rachelville. Looks like a nice place to visit, but don't see an opening for a PE teacher.


Liz

Started Specific Carbohydrate Diet on 8-16-09 because son was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and want to give him moral support.

Diagnosed with Minimal Change Nephrotic Syndrome in 2003. Discovered that going completely gluten-free put me in remission.

Rachel: Ice cream maker

:lol:

I left my ice cream maker at my mom's house. :(

This is very tragic as I sit here ice-creamless.

I bought half n half anyways and I'm sitting here debating on whether to run to the store and buy myself another ice cream maker.

My friend just gave me a lecture...telling me I cant go buy one...it wont kill me to wait one more day till I'm back at my moms....blah blah blah.

She doesnt understand...I CANT wait one more day!!! :ph34r:

Hi,

Just visiting Rachelville. Looks like a nice place to visit, but don't see an opening for a PE teacher.

Sure...we could use a PE teacher. Our little ones need to learn rock climbing and softball and all that fun stuff. Oh...just realized we need a softball field here in R-Ville.

Here is the application for PE teacher in R-ville.

Are you gluten free?

Do you promise to never infiltrate Rachelville with gluteney foods?

Do you promise to never bring gigantic Auxigro ridden produce into R-Ville?

OK...Thats about it.

If you answered yes to all of the above....the job is yours. :D

Oh...the purple glittery bats are our friends...so please do not hurt them. :)
