There's lots of pounding and swearing and Nickelback music coming from below right now. I'm afraid he's going to start chainsawing his way through the wall like Jack Nicholson...Oh Raaaachel, I'm hoooome! Help!

Did'ya at least get a towel before the wall gave way? I'm sure the llamas needed a whole to look through anyway.

Voyeurism! :lol: :lol: :lol: The worst part about peeping in occasionally is that we make so little sense when continuously viewed, the occasional glimpse must be like watching One flew over the cuckoo's nest.

or maybe it's always like that....

Hi everyone-late posting here--busy day.

John's still sick- and not getting better. Jen was at work last night and knows this fab GI dr in our hospital and he has agreed to see JOhn. He cannot understand why this other dr is insisiting on more scans while a patient is in this much pain. John has not eaten since Monday--a nibble here and there and then he gets sick.

spent the evening with Jen and Landen we made dinner at their house after we spent time doing some spring shopping.

Heres a very unsilly thing- as I was leaving Jen's @ 9:15 I grabbed my phone which was on vibrate and hidden in my purse awasy from little curious hands....here I had 17 missed calls and new text msgs. So I clicked on the text msgs all from John- the 1st said call me ASAP and the next two said Help....I got scared with him the way he is....so i hurried up and called him- here he went out to switch the trash cans and got locked out....@ 8:45.....he had forgotten to unlock the bottom lock on the inside door but he had left that door open--Lucky came along and pushed on the door shutting it....locking John out in his boxers....and it is like 45 out.....so I rushed home....

not much else to report---finally the wind is dying down!

Goooood Sunday Morning, all!

Today is a crazy one for the books. . . . .My dad has gone back into the hospital - - same problems are back. So I will fit in another visit there today....spent yesterday evening there while he got xrays and CT scans.

One, perhaps two, final tourney games for the Wildcats this morning and this aft. Hope they win it all! My dad is very sad that he's missed the end of Sophie's season. :(

Annnnnnd. . . . .. another baby shower this afternoon, with another Baby Tatt Registry in place. Gad. I ignored it and got my niece several baby board books, an adorable li'l leather baseball glove and ball, and many sleeper/jammies, summer and winter.

There. That takes care o' THAT.

Astonishing thing - - I will manage to come on here at some point in the day. I simply amaze myself, sometimes.

:lol:

Amanda! That poor hubby o' your'n. . .. . ..!! Glad he finally got in safe and sound.

Uh, listen... .. .. ..just keep yer phone on "ring' at all times....even when at the movies, church, appointments. . . . . .. <_<:rolleyes:

You must be getting our weather (actually, I think we're getting yours). Here in the Detroit suburbs they're calling for 6 inches of the nasty white stuff overnight. Enough already!! My tulips and daffodils can't take anymore.

And no fears--it's not critic , but critique.

One implies self-important nincompoop with messy desk and bad diet. The other implies forward thinking liberals with fantasy life happy endings and plenty of Kleenex boxes. (I'll take the fantasy over the fast food any day.)

We don't meet anymore, anyway. It was a 2 year volunteer gig at my local library, all in good fun.

So, my husband went to Ace Hardware this morning (3 blocks from our house) to get some Primer, and they couldn't scan his credit card cuz the power had been out since yesterday--coinkydink? I think not.

And dressing in front of those doe eyed llamas is just down right embarrassing <blush> we just don't do that sort of thing around here.

Well, I ate something very bad today (no idea what) and I'm feeling better, but I'm dehydrated and exhausted. I'm going to bed (Yes, it's only 7 o'clock).

I've got a boat load of work with a Tuesday deadline. Presumably Tuesday am, since it goes into what the boss is writing and his deadline is probably Tuesday pm. I figure if I wake up early, I'll go in early. Either way it's likely to be another 11-12 hour day.

Hey everybody. Jess, I hope you feel better soon! Hi to all the new people I haven't met yet!

Just stopped by to make sure everyone here knew about the Corn Chex thing. I found the post- I should've known it would have been been-there-done-that around here. :lol:

The boys and I are doing well. I mean, yeah there's always some new drama every other week, but I'm starting to think that's just how it's gonna be for quite a while. This past week was really hard for me- Wednesday was my 9th anniversary. (Do you think it was a bad idea to get married on April Fool's Day?) :rolleyes: But anyway, it's over, next week will be better.

I finally was able to find a job, albeit it is at what my mom calls "The Poison Factory" (McDonald's.) I work in the early mornings, and yes indeed there is biscuit flour EV-ER-Y-WHERE, all morning. So I don't know how long this is going to last. But I was desperate, and so far I haven't gotten sick. But I just started a week ago and I sure don't get my hands anywhere NEAR my mouth... I try not to breathe through my mouth either. <_< If I can just stick with it till I've saved up enough money for CNA school, I'll be ok.

BTW, just so everyone knows... it's the Biscuit Maker who makes the salads and the yogurt parfaits every morning, and she is, of course, covered head-to-toe in flour. :o

Gotta run for now. I think about you guys all the time! :wub:

From then on, his mission became creating delicious and fearlessly unique gluten-free products that were clean and great tasting, while still being safe for his Celiac customers!
    Premium ingredients, bakeshop delicious recipes, and happy customers were our inspiration from the beginning— and are still the cornerstones of Bakery On Main today.

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.

    Celiac.com 06/19/2018 - Could baking soda help reduce the inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease? Scientists at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University say that a daily dose of baking soda may in fact help reduce inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease.
    Those scientists recently gathered some of the first evidence to show that cheap, over-the-counter antacids can prompt the spleen to promote an anti-inflammatory environment that could be helpful in combating inflammatory disease.
    A type of cell called mesothelial cells line our body cavities, like the digestive tract. They have little fingers, called microvilli, that sense the environment, and warn the organs they cover that there is an invader and an immune response is needed.
    The team’s data shows that when rats or healthy people drink a solution of baking soda, the stomach makes more acid, which causes mesothelial cells on the outside of the spleen to tell the spleen to go easy on the immune response.  "It's most likely a hamburger not a bacterial infection," is basically the message, says Dr. Paul O'Connor, renal physiologist in the MCG Department of Physiology at Augusta University and the study's corresponding author.
    That message, which is transmitted with help from a chemical messenger called acetylcholine, seems to encourage the gut to shift against inflammation, say the scientists.
    In patients who drank water with baking soda for two weeks, immune cells called macrophages, shifted from primarily those that promote inflammation, called M1, to those that reduce it, called M2. "The shift from inflammatory to an anti-inflammatory profile is happening everywhere," O'Connor says. "We saw it in the kidneys, we saw it in the spleen, now we see it in the peripheral blood."
    O'Connor hopes drinking baking soda can one day produce similar results for people with autoimmune disease. "You are not really turning anything off or on, you are just pushing it toward one side by giving an anti-inflammatory stimulus," he says, in this case, away from harmful inflammation. "It's potentially a really safe way to treat inflammatory disease."
    The research was funded by the National Institutes of Health.

    Celiac.com 06/18/2018 - Celiac disease has been mainly associated with Caucasian populations in Northern Europe, and their descendants in other countries, but new scientific evidence is beginning to challenge that view. Still, the exact global prevalence of celiac disease remains unknown.  To get better data on that issue, a team of researchers recently conducted a comprehensive review and meta-analysis to get a reasonably accurate estimate the global prevalence of celiac disease. 
    The research team included P Singh, A Arora, TA Strand, DA Leffler, C Catassi, PH Green, CP Kelly, V Ahuja, and GK Makharia. They are variously affiliated with the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts; Lady Hardinge Medical College, New Delhi, India; Innlandet Hospital Trust, Lillehammer, Norway; Centre for International Health, University of Bergen, Bergen, Norway; Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts; Gastroenterology Research and Development, Takeda Pharmaceuticals Inc, Cambridge, MA; Department of Pediatrics, Università Politecnica delle Marche, Ancona, Italy; Department of Medicine, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; USA Celiac Disease Center, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; and the Department of Gastroenterology and Human Nutrition, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.
    For their review, the team searched Medline, PubMed, and EMBASE for the keywords ‘celiac disease,’ ‘celiac,’ ‘tissue transglutaminase antibody,’ ‘anti-endomysium antibody,’ ‘endomysial antibody,’ and ‘prevalence’ for studies published from January 1991 through March 2016. 
    The team cross-referenced each article with the words ‘Asia,’ ‘Europe,’ ‘Africa,’ ‘South America,’ ‘North America,’ and ‘Australia.’ They defined celiac diagnosis based on European Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition guidelines. The team used 96 articles of 3,843 articles in their final analysis.
    Overall global prevalence of celiac disease was 1.4% in 275,818 individuals, based on positive blood tests for anti-tissue transglutaminase and/or anti-endomysial antibodies. The pooled global prevalence of biopsy-confirmed celiac disease was 0.7% in 138,792 individuals. That means that numerous people with celiac disease potentially remain undiagnosed.
    Rates of celiac disease were 0.4% in South America, 0.5% in Africa and North America, 0.6% in Asia, and 0.8% in Europe and Oceania; the prevalence was 0.6% in female vs 0.4% males. Celiac disease was significantly more common in children than adults.
    This systematic review and meta-analysis showed celiac disease to be reported worldwide. Blood test data shows celiac disease rate of 1.4%, while biopsy data shows 0.7%. The prevalence of celiac disease varies with sex, age, and location. 
    This review demonstrates a need for more comprehensive population-based studies of celiac disease in numerous countries.  The 1.4% rate indicates that there are 91.2 million people worldwide with celiac disease, and 3.9 million are in the U.S.A.
