Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

That is a great tune but what is it?

Oh, man, now I feel OLD!!!! I thought everyone knew that song!!!

When I think about doing a cafe I know I would have to limit what I could do but I wouldn't have to do it alone, I've got all these great nieces and nephews to hire. :)

Are you near Cincinnati??? I've been thinking about the same thing! I've got kids for hire, too.

Sex: Yes Please

:D

I know the song - - am old, too.....but can't remember who sang it....I think it was big when I was in - junior high....

forgot one thing - Julie - made a toasted tortilla last night....I don't think I did it right - pretty tasty but needs improvement - - guess it really is an ART FORM requiring great skill? :lol:

yup, that's what I was going to stay and thought I made it up....One-hit Wonder band, clearly :)

Welcome Tiffany :)

Karen- great news about your mom and daughter

Nikki and Beverly- I am also wishing you both very safe travels

rinne- I am pretty sure it's a 60s tune, not sure who sings it but I know it has recently been used for some commercial. I kinda hate when they take great songs and use them in commercials, like for a dishwashing detergent or something, it makes me associate the song then with that product. I guess that is the idea behind advertising <_<

Tavi- I did a google search on just Tavi and there were thousands, then I did Tavi + Celiac and you came up. I did a search on Julie + Celiac and I came up. So I see what you mean, kind of freaky. Of course someone would have to think of putting the name and the condition together. I wish there were some kind of protective/privacy thing on this board.

Good morning Vincent, Andrea, Carla, Donna, and Susie :)

edit* guess you all discussed the song while I was posting :lol:

Donna - I have to try a Bumble Bar before I meet you :P - - Whole Foods?

Yep, except mine has been out of the CHOCOLATE variety for two weeks now...could THAT be why I haven't had any Bumble Bars in two weeks. :lol:

Oh, man, now I feel OLD!!!! I thought everyone knew that song!!!

I knew it but couldn't remember who sang it...I see below that someone has found it, lol. :lol:

Helps if you have a toaster oven I think...and definitely takes some trial and error with timing. :P

:lol::lol:

Now corn tortilla eating is all the rage here in the 'ville (stealing The Dave's wordage)

"Toasting" is dear Donna's department, she might have some tricks of the trade to share. I do the steaming, which I have just about mastered, have yet to try toasting.

But glad you tried it Susie Q :)

Yes dingbat, it IS a toaster oven..... :lol::lol::lol: perhaps not toasted long enough...I was impatient.....

Julie - yes, can't stand it when they ruin a song for me and yes, having to think of DETERGENT when I hear something ...... :angry::lol:

Must be divine intervention Donna :lol::lol:

Needs to happen here, NO NUGGETS in the entire San Joaquin Valley..... :lol:

I really wonder what the synergistic effects are of highly processed food cooked in a micro-wave. I had one years ago, I think my mother-in-law bought it for us - she loves to buy appliances, but I rarely used it because I didn't like what it did to the flavour and texture of food and then we just gave it away. Do you know there are restaurants where literally no cooking is done, only packages opened that are then micro-waved?

I wish more would ask who's interests are being served by our having to go so fast that convenience has become everything, when did we lose the joy of simple food and the time to enjoy it?

There is a really interesting book by a woman named Linda McQuaig called "All You Can Eat", to quote from the cover, "Despite dizzying economic growth, we seem to have gotten things fundamentally backwards: we're allowing society to serve the interests of the economy, rather than insisting the economy serve the interests of society". It appears to me that our appetites are being programmed to serve the corporations that would sell us the highly processed foods and a lifestyle of consumption requires more work which means less time which means fast food..... I'll get off my soapbox now. :ph34r::lol:

I don't work outside the home, my sweetie makes enough that we can live simply on his salary and we decided we'd rather have less stuff and more leisure. It has been a blessing that we made that choice because for the past year I couldn't have worked. I'm beginning to feel better now but I won't be working for anybody else. When I think about doing a cafe I know I would have to limit what I could do but I wouldn't have to do it alone, I've got all these great nieces and nephews to hire. :)

rinne as always, very interesting post, makes me ponder a lot of things.

Thanks for the book suggestion.

I had a feeling about microwaves in restaurants, I imagine they rely on them a lot.

I know that for me, my diet continues to get purer and purer and when I eat the processed and packaged foods once in a while, or get something from a restaurant (which is so rare), it doesn't even taste good to me anymore. I can tell a difference right away. I think our food supply has really changed, if you can even call it food anymore....

A cafe is a lot of work, one of my family members owns and runs one. Long long off hours, lots of turn over with the help, but at the same time she is rewarded by the experience- cooking for people, the personal relationships she has with the townfolk.

Just call all the stores in the area and tell them that you are addicted to nuggets and to please not carry them anymore. :lol::lol:

There is quite the story behind how Chevy got the rights to "Like a Rock" the Bob Seger song. They actually made the commercial and sent it to him because he said no. Then he liked it and said okay. He didn't want some lame association with his song.

:lol: I toast the first side on the DARK setting then turn the tortilla over, spray it with Olive oil and add salt then toast it on the MEDIUM setting... It is a little crispy on the edges but a little chewy on the inside and doesn't have the raw tortilla taste...I'm also using a corn tortilla that I found at whole foods, which looks almost as white as a flour tortilla.

Nikki -- I hear in the UK now they can't even take electornices (MP3 players etc) on the aircraft now. They are thinking about instituting the same policy here in Canada as well. What are we supposed to do on international flights now? Can't even bring our own drinks etc anymore.

Hope all of you who are planning to travel are safe, and there are not TOO many delays. :blink:

If I missed anything in the last few pages I apologize in advance, and will be caught up soon.

I have an idea with the name/google problem. First of all, I doubt a family member or friend would even think of searching for our names or their name with celiac ... but in case they do, if you say something here meant for our eyes only, then you can always go back and delete it after a couple days. It's not like any of us go back and read through the old posts! Another board member and I deleted just about a whole thread for this reason. I think Susan at one point stumbled on to it, but the party was all cleaned up by the time she got there :)

Wait- I thought you could pack 'em in your luggage- just not carry on? Is it different in the UK? Ugh! Nikki- safe travels; please return to us (with new makeup and perfume!!!!!).

I love that song?

Clowns to the left of me

Jokers to the right

Here I am.....

went white water rafting once and that was the theme song for our video. Very apropos as we lost the guide off the back of the boat in a class V rapid. No one even noticed until my shy sister-in-law looked back and said, "uhm, you guys. I think we lost the guide." :ph34r:

We lost him and he lost his swimming trunks :huh: Luckily, he had neoprene shorts underneath!

Donna and Beverly,

DIET COKE???? :o

This stuff is Bad (with a capital B)!!

In all my research I've come across so much info. having to do with aspartame. Aspartame was the very first thing in food I knew I was reacting to...way before I heard of gluten. It was only in my gum but it was causing severe symptoms that calmed down once I stopped chewing gum. I looked it up online not knowing a thing about it. What I read was scary. :ph34r:

I also read alot from people who had suffered tremendously because of the aspartame in all the diet products they were consuming. The stuff is toxic...period.

Beverly, since you've been through the wringer with symptoms similar to mine...from the nightsweats to everything else...I would definately lose the diet coke...at least for a week or two. I feel like you will notice some improvement for sure. If you dont I would be very surprised. Have you ever stopped drinking it this whole time? If not it could be something to look into. If you do decide to eliminate it....dont switch to another diet drink. You would be better off drinking regular Coke.....seriously. Avoid the diet products and see what happens.

Donna, you could try elimininating it too. If you do have problems with histamine....food additives like MSG and Aspartame will cause a reaction. They dont actually contain histamine but because they are essentially a toxic substance the immune system will respond with a release of histamine. Thats why they are not allowed on a histamine restricted diet. They cause pseudo-allergic reactions.

http://www.mcmanweb.com/article-110.htm

Dont know if this will help either of you with any of your symptoms but I've read posts from other people on various boards who said they had alot of problems that disappeared after they avoided Aspartame. I believe it because of the severity of my own reactions just from the chewing gum.

oh....I'm feeling very scientificness today so I may have more stuff to report later today if I get the time. ;)

This stuff is Bad (with a capital B)!!

:lol: When I type out a "B" with the parenthesis after it....I get this dude. B)

Rachel- You're right, you're right, I know you're right.

It's just so harrrdddd!!!!!!!!!! (whine, whine, whimper)

You know what- while on vacation, I will try not to drink any diet coke and see what happens. :ph34r::ph34r:

Luckily??

Well, I mean I guess we could have lost him completely!!!!! Certainly would have been embarassing to pull out a 60 year old rafting guide with no swimming trunks. B)

Have to agree Bev,

Diet drinks are the worse and regular soda type drinks aren't much better.

You can do it.

Remember.....I know I can, I know I can, I know I can.....not drink to pop.

Rachel- excellent scientificness :lol:

I was going to say something about the iet-day oke-kay, or just oda-say in general, but didn't want to sound preachy :unsure:

Beverly- hysterical about the white water rafting :lol: There is some information about Coke, the formula used to be engine cleaner, just add sugar syrup. Imagine what it does to our insides :o
