Recommended Posts

Who me? Im just incconcently sitting here thinking about a 4th bowl.....

Yeah...he's taunting me allright. <_<

Its ok though...I've got my frozen apple juice pops....so there! :P

ok...so I admit...that wasnt too convincing. Nothing is as good as ice cream. :(

And while you're sitting at your computer tighten and release your gluteus maximus' regularly to prevent computer chair spread!

LMAO

OK...but first...what is gluteus maximus? :unsure:

Does it have anything to do with gluten and the diet cuz we're taking a break from "science" lessons today. Susan cant handle it on a daily basis....freaks her out a little. :rolleyes:

Oops, sorry. Didn't mean to be too scientific. It's latin for your butt muscles. (That will be the "education" part of physical education for today.) Tighten, release, tighten, release, tighten, release...

I'm so over the eating gluten thing! On the upside...I'm not that anemic anymore!!!! Wahoo!!!

Gotta retest in another 6 weeks though...

Mango, what are the Aussie men like? ARE they all like Russell Crowe and Keith Urban? Kinda scruffy and o-so-lovely?

Yes. All of them. Seriously. :)

I keep buying 1/2 hour internet passes, and by the time I get around to posting on here, there's 30 seconds left :lol:.

Okay what's with the ice cream makers and the purple bats? :huh: I'm so not caught up. I'll have to come back later. Bye for now, Rachelville!

Hey --- I live in Kentucky --- Louisville, in fact, home of the Kentucky Derby --- and MINT JULEPS!!!!!!! I have a HUGE area of mint growing in my back yard . . . . know how to make the Julep Syrup . . . (can do it gluten-free), AND, Maker's Mark Bourbon . . . (Best in the world) . . . is Gluten Free . . . . oh yes, my friends, oh yes. Nothing beats sitting back at the end of a hot day sipping mint juleps . . . . :D

Ya know Lynne, when I designed the Rachelville Citizen of the Year Award Trophy, I honoured you by using the Kentucky Derby trophy as the base. I just stuck a tin of altoids over the horse on the top! See how much I admire you? :D

:lol::lol: I love you so much, my friend!!!!! I wonder if I could talk Churchill Downs into letting me display it with an Altoids tin in the Derby Museum . . . it truly IS a fine piece of craftsmanship with the modifications. Although . . . then they might get jealous, and tell CNN about Rachelville . . . better not let them know. Yes, that's definitely BEST!!!! B)

On a very serious note: To all Rachelville residents: Don't know if no one mentioned Karen's response to my "indebtedness" to Dave because we were skating dangerously close to the edge, or because of my "wheelchair" status. Please rest assured, I am SO over the wheelchair thing . . . Karen knows that as well. I have been in it for well over a year, and am to the point that I can joke about it and really mean it. That is why her post was so hysterically funny to me. It wasn't a jab -- if anyone was afraid of that. First, we all know that Karen isn't like that, and second -- it was Karen who sat on the telephone with me for over 45 minutes at 10:45 at night, while I was sobbing over the whole wedding issue with my daughter, and she was calming me down the whole time. THAT is a friend . . . . . So, please rest assured, any reference to my "chair" is O.K. -- even the references to the numerous falls I've taken -- that's O.K., too! Just wanted you to know that.

On a much more "up" note with regard to the same thing -- I have found four T-shirts which my dear NOT GAY husband wants me to purchase:

1) "Be nice to me. I'm not above rolling over your toes."

2) (Picture a handicapped parking sign) "I'm only in it for the parking."

3) (Picture a drawing of a butt) "If I look like this, please put me back in my chair."

4) And my personal favorite . . . In PINK, no less, with purple writing on the FRONT AND BACK: "I'm not drunk. I walk this way on purpose."

While they're not on level of the Rachelville T-shirt I'm designing (I know you're all waiting with baited breath for the "unveiling"), I still think they're fabulous!!!!!! :rolleyes:

Karen, from here on in I will never think that a Mint Julep is complete without crushed Altoids on the rim instead of sugar . . . . . :lol::lol::lol:

I'm so bummed I missed the party!

Sorry my cop picture links didn't work, but it's not what you think! They weren't pictures of shirtless cops from a gay porn site or anything like that :lol:

You guys should talk I just got done going over all the pages I missed and there was talk of altoids, gay husbands, nuggets, and clenching glute muscles!! Karen, this is all your fault :lol:

Looks like I am going to have to call to order not one, but two interventions. Rachel is in a bad way with her ice cream, out of control completely. And Susan with her nuggets , don't know what to make of that one....

:lol::lol:

I'm sorry I missed Mango, again. Hi Mango! Hope you are having a great time down under!

Also so sorry rinne you still are not feeling yourself, I hope you feel better soon!

I have been a lousy Rachelville greeter of late, hi to everyone new that I have missed, Carla, Lynne, Lisa, lonewolf...Welcome to good ol R'ville :)

Sounds like quite the party, glad to find such hilarity in Rachelville.

I fell asleep early and am now awake feeling a little better than I have been. Thanks for the well wishes.

Rachel, congratulations on the weight gain, that is wonderful news.

Ya know . . . . as a "non-gastro" celiac, I'm very happy for you guys when you gain weight . . . . but it takes most of the sympathy/empathy I can muster to be happy for you rather than to be so envious I can't STAND IT. I have gained 100# since all this stuff started 3 years ago . . . 100 lbs. -- THAT IS A WHOLE PERSON. I was lean, in fantastic shape . . . and BOOM. Everything just went to He**.

So, I'm very happy for you that you gained weight . . . . I'm very happy for you that you gained weight . . . . I'm very happy for you that you gained weight . . . (saying this with very clenched teeth, but smiling . . . . ) :D

Trying to stay happy in Rachelville . . . . .

I use some of Bobs too without a problem- I have had a problem with their baking mixes but I think that was due to the use of bean flours which I don't do well with. I also have started to use mrs. robens .

I was picturing more along the lines of a piston on wheels......

:rolleyes:

OMG :lol:

Karen -- I am laughing so hard I can't BREATHE!!! Dave is simply shaking his head . . . . :P

In case y'all don't know . . . I'm in a wheelchair . . . hence, "piston on wheels". Good thing I ordered new batteries for the wheels two weeks ago!!!!!!! :lol::lol: May have to order new brakes, too!!!!!

Karen, you are the BEST :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

:lol: You know, I can sit here and laugh and chuckle and MY husband looks at me funny and shakes his head. He thinks we're a bit loony.

Oh my no... our geese don't poop :)

If we have purple glittery bats, how come we can't have geese that poop hypoallergenic flowers?

ROFLMAO!!!

OK...now I've really hurt myself from busting my gut all over again!

Lisa....why would all these women be discussing hunky cops and altoids in the same sentence....if...um the cops were women?? :unsure:

:lol::lol::lol:

I was wondering about your husband myself but leave it Susan to come right out and ask!

LMAO!!

:lol::lol::lol:

Altoids should work the other way around....even for the "hunky" female cops no? ;)

SOO many things in here I don't know where to go. Who knows, maybe the hunky women cops look like men? I have never imaged a "hunky woman" :blink: I expect they do look like men? Could we all be decieved?

Regarding my husband, well, he's straight, but not as much as he used to be. :unsure:

ROTFLMAO :lol::lol::lol:

I have a question...nothing about gay cops, altoids or hunkey females :lol:

Yes, I have a serious question... imagine that :o

Just wondering if anyone else has this... when I hurt myself enough to break skin... like a cut... no matter what I cut myself on... that injury becomes an allergic reaction, a hive... does anyone else have this?

Not with me, but when I bruise or skin or scrape skin, it takes months go heal and the color to subside.

what is with my new junk food cravings? (oops - better look at the calendar - sorry guys :ph34r: )

Susan...all three guys in R-Ville are married...don't you think we look at calanders enough as it is?

Like Lisa, my cuts take months to go away now that I have become gluten free. And I seem to bruise a little easier than I should. I used to heal VERY fast, and now, not so much.

Well, in the spirit of my handy man duites here in real life, I have to go install some gable vents in my attic. We just bought this house, and the previous owners sided over all the natural vents in the attic, cousing my a/c and heater to work to hard. Back as soon as possible.

Also, in repsponse to the CNN thing, they may take the cult thing too far....I amy be from Canada, but we get CNN here and they have (with all the sarcasm I can muster) never blown ANYTHING out of proportion!! :P<_<

Talk to you all soon.

Thanks Lynne for thinking of posting that. It never even occurred to me that someone would read my piston joke and think it was callous in nature. I have to remember that not everyone knows that I'm just a silly Whacko from Up North!

Hugs.

Karen

Me too. "Well isn't that niiiiiiice." <---I have to say that with my severest southern drawl to get enough non-envious sincerity into it.

I gained 20 effin' pounds in a month when I started this gluten challenge. A MONTH. I didn't think that was medically possible :blink: Y'all can take some of mine. I guess we all have weight struggles of some kind...

Good Morning and what a beautiful day.

Just wondering if anyone else has this... when I hurt myself enough to break skin... like a cut... no matter what I cut myself on... that injury becomes an allergic reaction, a hive... does anyone else have this?

Cecile, I don't have this. I do bruise very easily though, in fact had a bruise on may arm just from sleeping with my head on it. :( I used to get boils but found that if I ate a lot of garlic, garlic oil capsules, it would stop them, they would recede and not come to a head. Garlic is supposed to be a natural blood purifier and I always figured that the boils came when I started to get overloaded with toxins. Don't know if this would help you but I'm sorry about the hives. Ow. :(

Good morning guys and gals.

Nice to hear from you Ryan and Julie.

Rinne, glad you are feeling better today.

Celia, that is odd about getting an allergic reaction, with the exception of a cat or a dog scratch. I have no idea what would cause that.

Vincent, oooooohhhhh. Poor Rachel. So did you have 2 supersize servings or 4 small servings. :P

I have a memory of someone telling me that the aboriginal people here knew that if there was a poisonous plant there was also a plant that grew nearby that would counter-act the poison. I think that there are many natural remedies that we are surrounded by but have lost the knowledge of the ways in which they heal, garlic being one of them. Love these relevations. :)

Drift....

Cause that's is what we get to do in Rachelville. :)

A friend of mine tried a hundred mile diet this winter, his wife was telling me that all his digestion problems went away while on the diet but when he re-introduced peanut butter he started having problems. I suspect it may have been a combination of eating locally and being on what could be an elimination diet.

Julie, the vitamins I found are Floravit, made by Salus, they are primarily Iron and B vitamins in a fruit base. I've just been taking one teaspoon a day this week and thus far they seem o.k., I think I will continue for a month and see if I notice some difference. I'm going to keep looking too, if anyone knows of liquid vitamins could you post the brand name. Thanks.

Hi Andrea, yes I am feeling a little better today. I find that when I wake up the first thing I do now is scan my body to assess the level of pain I am waking into and whether or not it is greater or lesser than the day before. I feel like I am becoming an expert on pain, just as the Inuit have many names for snow I could coin another ten ways to name pain. And Cecile, no I am not living on Morphin. :lol::lol::lol: I've never taken anything for the pain and now that I know about leaky gut and such I am really glad that I didn't.

Last night I was talking with a friend who is going through a very ugly divorce and she said she wonders sometimes if she will get another chance, another opportunity to feel truly alive and engaged, that she is impatient to get over this and at the same time she is afraid that there may not be another chance for her, that maybe she is too old and will never really recover. Me too, but for me it is my health.

I think that surprised her. My point being that spinach happens to everyone, although uniquely so in Rachelville :lol::lol::lol: , and it is what we do when it does not whether or not we could have protected ourselves from it. I love that we laugh here.

I take the iron supplement version of those vitamins, it's called floravital (same company). They actually work! In 6 weeks my iron levels went from dangerous to barely anemic while I was taking those. I can't tolerate any vitamins so it's amazing that these don't bother me. You can find them at whole foods.

:) Hi R'ville friends-just thought I'd check in before going out (dh, ds, and myself) are going to the caves in the mountains to COOL OFF!! Ungodly hot today and humidity is ugh, but I need green sights to energize for the week ahead. :)

Cecile-I get that!! When I get a little scratch or a first degree burn it itches like crazy! What is with that?

penguin-I forgot to mention--YOU LUCKY GIRL!! Matthew McC--omg--the babe of the century!!

rinne-the native peoples were so much more in touch with the natural world and probably with their own bodies. Native plants are disappearing so fast, there were probably some nice plants that grew near poison ivy that would remove the toxins -wow wouldn't that be a great plant?

Susan -what are the nuggets? Are they like Hershey kisses? Hey, the wavy Lays are great! I am the only one who likes them in this family, though. I use chicken salad as a "dip" for 'em for a nice lunch sometimes.

Lynne- Mint Juleps, mmmm... my grandma was a native Kentuckian-I'm a descendant of Henry Clay--Mint Juleps and iced tea run through my veins!! (Love my new home VA though, South is South, right?)

We are all Southerners in spirit. Kindness, courtesy, self-sacrifice and hospitality are all here in R'ville :lol:

Alright already, I have to go... :D Have a great Sunday!!

edit--MANGO--NO WAY!!! A WHOLE COUNTRY OF THEM!!????MUST BE A WONDERFUL TIME YOU ARE HAVING IN AUSSIE LAND!!!
