*begins building R-Vills' first Diet Coke Stand*

I was just in the midst of a very long and very scientific post. I lost it. :angry:

I am so angry right now...I dont have time to retype it....have to run errands.

I hope the scientificness stays with me until I have time to redo it. :unsure: Who knows when brain freeze will take over....I will refrain from eating ice cream until I can repost.

This sucks. :angry:

EDIT: I will try to refrain from ice cream until I can repost. :ph34r:

Heres a TOP SECRET HINT - When you have long posts like that, type them first in MS Word, or other word processor, that way you can save your work and wont loose your post. I do it when evern I am typing more then a few lines... helps with spell check too :P

*sniff* lucky you, CArla.....I want a grandma....with a cabin.....in the mountains.....(right now I would just take anyone with a cabin in the mountains, hence my e-correspondence with that MISCREANT - that's right - from my past...... :angry::lol:

never too late and dang, aren't you only about 30? now at my age you have to start to get worried.... :o

Premature Post

OMG- I cannot get the music of that ex-MISCREANT of yours out of my head. It's been looping in my brain for two days. must replace it with some Led Zeppelin.

Psst.... look to the left. New user name but still same old me. Shhh..... :ph34r: I got tired of my old one and did a few googles that came up with some things I didn't like.

Leah- Welcome. I've always adored your picture- I think you look like Shawn Colvin in it!

OK- no more diet Coke. I do so solemnly swear none shall infiltrate in to R-ville ;);)

Oh...more news. Colonoscopy results CLEAR. Still violently ill. Hubby and I have decided upon return from Seattle we are moving out. we're convinced it's this apartment. He's been leaving every day for the last two weeks to work in the office instead of at home, and he even says he feels much better. After watching me bow to the porcelain god tonight FOR NO reason, he said we are outta here.

So my communication in the next few weeks may be somewhat sporadic but I will pop in for summaries and to say hello! Love to all, Beverly

Wow Beverly,

That's not good if your apartment is making you sick. Who'd have thought. Enjoy your trip to my beautiful state (can't say I like Seattle very well myself though :P ).

Nooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It'll do me in just like Blue Diamond Nut Thins. Yes- Rachel, they killed me. I woke up the next morning and had to do a polar bear swim on New Year's Day for charity. 40 degree water does NOT remove gluten. Ugh!

Picard- Enjoy your time with your dad.

Leah- I travel all the time. I bring a lot of my own food, call ahead to place, when in doubt leave it out. two suggestions- in New England I always stay at inns or B & B's that are familiar with Celiac's. There are lots of them. Just google an area, gluten and "inns" or "bed and breakfasts". Another option is in instead of staying in hotels, rent a place with a kitchen. I have a friend who is intolerant of 50 bazillion things and when she goes anywhere, she gets a condo or apt so she can cook. This woman has been all over Europe. It CAN be done and i love to travel so much I will not give it up. So far, I've had minimal problems!

Bev - - excellent new name BTW - - but you are confused on WHICH miscreant to which I refer! not the "angry little man/ has-been pop singer"/miscreant.....no, the one who contacted me adn asked me out over email this week. turns out he is STILL a miscreant. :angry: PUt on some Nick Drake and you'll be fine! And SO glad you're moving! that's a really big step and glad your husband finally agreed!

that's all I got. gotta head out again - - - safe travels to those who are leaving and a good, healthy and restful night's sleep to eveyrone else.

edit - just one more thing before I go - -

and it includes scientificness so please tell me what you think!

An acquaintance emailed this to me and I want to know if you guys know anything about this:

"In addition, I attended an amazing lecture on a new emerging

technology...glyconutritionals. Four of the last eight Nobel Prizes were

awarded to scientists in this field. There are 8 essential monosaccarides

(sugars) necessary for cellular function. We only get 2 in our diets. As a

result, we have an huge increase in many types of diseases in the Western

countries. (soils depleted, chemical engineering, pesticides and

herbicides, etc.)

Many people with many diseases, including Celiac, have had their body heal

itself with supplementation of these nutrients. I met a man who's daughter

with Celiac can now eat bread after three months of being on the

supplements!

I'm going to try them and see what happens. They've benefitted stroke

patients, cancer patients, Down syndrome children (you should have seen the

amazing before and after photos!), and on and on. If the cells get what

they need, the body functions properly and can fight off disease and heals

itself."

Do you guys know anything about glyconutritionals? I have to say, it sounds like quackery to me, but I've done zero research. So anybody who might know, would love to hear what you think.

See you!

Interesting post Susan. I know nothing about it and will look forward to any others who may have. I'm skeptical too.

Susie- how did your dinner go?

Look at you and your scientificness :lol::lol:

I haven't heard specifically about these glyconutrients. My thoughts are this: in my experiences of taking mass amounts of supplements (vitamins, minerals, essential nutrients) over the last 10 years, they didn't allow me to eat just anything I wanted. They may have made me a little stronger, immune system wise, etc., but I still had the allergies/intolerances in place.

Andrea- like with everything else, the chocolate eating in Rachelville has become contagious :lol:

I had Pamela's chocolate chip cookies and bbq sauce tonight :blink:

I will have to start all over with my histamine diet tomorrow, bad me

Beverly- congrats on the good colonoscopy results! Glad you are deciding to moveout, maybe it will make a difference with both your and hubby's health.

Picard- Enjoy the time with your dad :)

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

Carla, I'm in Canada, Manitoba actually.

I'm also only on page 372, that's what I get for taking a day away. :lol:

Not together, I had chocolate chip cookies after I ate some brisket with bbq sauce. Three no-nos on a low histamine diet, chocolate, sugar, and tomato products :huh:

Where is everyone tonight??

And does Celia no longer love us?

Julie,

I couldn't resist. Hopefully you won't have a real bad reaction to it since you've been so good lately.

I'm here but gotta get your little king to bed in a few minutes. Then I'll be back later and you'll probably be gone.

I know you were just kidding with me :D

Oh my little King Seth, smooshy baby cheeks! Give him a big kiss for me.

I forgot to ask you about the coconut oil and how you make butter with it, do tell.

Yeah, I'll probably turn in in a few so if I don't see you back here, goodnight!

Julie,

I pm'd you the recipe but I'm posting it here for others who may be interested.

Recipe for butter from Ten Talents by Rosalie Hurd

Into the blender put:

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup carrot juice

OR 1 cup water & carotene

Add.

2 Tbs Powdered soy milk (I omit this)

1 tsp salt

1 Tbs. Coconut meal (Optional) (I don't use this either)

Blend well then add slowly while blending:

1/2 cup soy or safflower oil (I use grapeseed)

Last blend in just to thicken:

1/2 cup coconut oil + 1-2 Tbs liquid lecithin (I don't use, I increase the coconut oil)

Pour into container(s) and chill to get hard. Keep refrigerated.

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.

Julie, seems like I just missed you.

I have had the same experience with my diet.

The best part of running the deli and juice bar was my regular customers. I love to feed people.

Welcome Queen of Hearts, how do you come by your name? :)

And must we send a posse out to find Cecile? B)

Karen this is the best news. I'm about 6 pages behind as i couldn't get in last nite..then Patti helped me figure out 'the map to Rville.'So now maybe i can keep up. She taught me about the quotes too...all on a nite with a full moon. (God for bid) good news about your daughter too. your on a roll. What's this about you being sick again. Can' t find that part again as i 'lost my Rville road map)

[quote name='Canadian Karen' date='Aug 11 2006, 12:36 AM' post='184044'

Well, yesterday, this same lady called me and said that a one bedroom apt is coming available September 1st right here in Bowmanville! In fact, it is in one of the buildings that I put Mom's name on the list for! We go see it tomorrow at 1:00 p.m....... I sooooooooo hope this works out, because it would be awesome having my mom so close to me again! I have no idea what miracles this kind angel of a lady performed, but I thank my lucky stars for it! It just re-inforces my belief that you catch many more flies with honey than with vinegar......... Being nice is always the better way to go......

Karen, I was in Newfoundland last summer and loved it, it is wacky. :lol: That is great news about your mother and I think you are absolutely right about honey. :)

Cecile, that is beautiful.

Morning all.

Woke up to find my dog has gone, my sweetie left the back door open and she has taken a walk. :( She is 12 and this has never happened before. At least she is licensed, wearing her collar and has a tattoo, if any of you see a medium sized collie/blue heeler cross who answers to Muji, send her home to me. :lol: I'm not too worried yet, she is a very smart dog and is best friends with my neighbour and I figure she'll be home for him if not me. <_<

I added you on my aol list Carla. I have several others on there from this site. Maybe I'll drop you a line if I see you on.

Sounds good. I usually don't actually sign on through AOL since we have high speed, but it's through AOL, so I wonder if it shows me as on. I don't know.

Beverly, glad hubby has agreed to move, I know you've been wanting to. I hope that is the answer to your health problems!

Sorry, didn't mean to bring up a sore subject! I'll make my next batch of cookies chocolate-free in your honor.

Oh thank you...I might just be able to avoid that 12-step program. :lol:

Are any of you travelers? How do you cope? Huge suitcases filled with rice cakes?

Almost...I've done most of my traveling before I went gluten/casein free, but have always taken food with me. I just went to Las Vegas a few weeks ago and took all kinds of stuff to supplement my habit, lol. :lol:

Well the appointment with the dermatologist went just about as I expected...she has no idea why my legs are so itchy. She did give me a script for some topical antihistamine cream and a mild topical steroidal cream. I haven't filled the prescriptions yet, but might be willing to try the topical antihistamine cream. We talked about the histamine foods, sugar, environmental causes, etc. but in the end she can't imagine the food being the problem because she thinks it would be more systemic itching. She also didn't think it was DH because it doesn't look like it, and it should be getting better not worse on gluten-free diet. So, I'm back to still just trying to figure it all out myself. I'm not sure I agree with the reaction being more systemic though...I think we've proven on this site and on this thread that reactions can be very different and attack in different placed in different people.
