All I can think of now is a tiny, unfortunate wee guy with a lil rubber cap on his head tripping and falling into the ho tub!

Yer sure there was nothin phloating on the water as you got in, Em?

:lol::lol: Tiny wee guy with a li'l rubber cap on his head......now, did I have anybody in my ho'tub around that time fitting that description?...... . .I mean, we're talking small head, here.....that could explain it -- poor wee bloke, sitting with us in the tub, inadvertently losing his rubber cap....this goes unnoticed, as we are all drinking wine, larfing away (probably at this guy's tiny head)...hmmm...this or the airplane.... .. ..they both make a great deal of sense...

The only things I think of falling from a plane (besides wings of course, which I always used to keep my eye on in my early flying days :ph34r: ) are those blue froz en things that wouldn't last long in a ho' tub though, at least not in their frozen form, and wouldn't look much llike crutch tips when they melted :D:ph34r:

:huh:

What are these blue frozen things, Shrooomie?. . ..Icicles?. .. ...

Was there ever a PICTURE of this thing?

YES. I took one, when Ptaoughmmn and I were discussing which coloUr is most commonly used in the manufacture of crutch-tips. I said brick-coloUred, as this find in my ho'tub was....Ptoughmn seemed to think he'd seen a lot of black ones.....anyways, I took a shot of this crutch tip beside the brick siding of my house. 'Twas the EXACT same coloUr.........what does it meeeeeeean??...

and what in hell has Leesargh got going on ??

The flash mob was for the International Law Enforcement Conference for the 2013 Special Olympics. It was a small group of performers with a wide range of ability <_< It was fun anyway, but I almost hope it doesn't make it on youtube. :ph34r: But I only noticed the beginning because shortly after it started a young man....a special olympics athlete...got up and danced next to me. Didn't notice anyone else after that. :wub: He was adorable! It could've looked great after the beginning. I wouldn't have known!

Weren't the Twa considerably larger than GI Joe/Barbie size?

(Oops *Aren't*! . ..sorry Twa!)

P'raps Sam Hill Manhead's original disposers dropped it whilst surveilling his whereabouts. Makes perfect sense if the crutch-tip doubled as a scale model for a Burundian hat for a Jeeyi Joe Manhead scale model of Sam.

Hey Sports Fans!! . . . . ..hmmm not much enthusiasm ..

Hey fans of 9 yr olds doing uhhhMAZE-zing things! (Ahh there we go)

I'm watching espn now, but the clips were on my local news too.

9yo kid in Utah playing midget football (how unPC), definitely one of the smallest on the field, playing running back & being almost unstoppable, breaking tackles or scooting out of reach of the little boys giving chase. 35 touchdowns!

Her dad must be so proud.

She was on our news as well . . . Has 35 touchdowns and something like 1900 yards rushing this season and she plays some defense as well but they didn't have any clips of it.

Sam Hill . . . :lol: :lol: :lol: . . . and I can't believe that tom brought up the Burundi as I was going to suggest them as well . . . totally forgot about the Twa.

Is anyone on here into video games?

I decided to play Legend of zelda: Majora's mask for the heck of it and started a new file. I'm just now realizing how ridiculously dark it is. Oh wow. If it were released today, there is no doubt it would be a "T" game instead of an "E" game. Scratch that, it is being rereleased for the WiiU (why nintendo, why?).

There is the trailer for it if your interested.

Em's post with a link for a ho' tub crutch tip.

Close enough........ . I am certain it is the large, brick-coloUred, rubber thing that goes onto the end of a wooden CRUTCH.

I said that one COULD probably wear it around one's neck. WOULD one? Another story. . . . .

laugh.giflaugh.giflaugh.gif

WHAT IN HELL is a crutch end doing in my ho' tub?????? NO ONE 'round here wears crutches.

huh.gif

This is what I found (ONE of these):

Now, could these things be used for anything else???

I think not. . . . . they're fer crutches!!!

No one, not any child, adult, neighboUr, who has been here or even LIVES around here, has crutches.

I will look for it....it could still be in my folder of old pics. I could actually look for the actual crutch tip itself, which I don't remember ever throwing out.... Could be in Jack's room, as he found this whole mystery fascinating, took it to school to the "sharing time" and explained its strange appearance in our lives. Apparently his fellow students looked at him like this:

    Celiac.com 07/21/2018 - These easy-to-make tortilla wraps make a great addition to your lunchtime menu. Simply grab your favorite gluten-free tortillas, a bit of cream cheese, some charred fresh sweet corn, creamy avocado and ripe summer tomato. Add a bit of sliced roast beef and some mayonnaise and hot sauce, and you’re in business. And it's all ready in about half an hour. If you cook the corn the night before, they can be ready in just a few minutes.
    Ingredients:
    12 ounces thinly sliced cooked beef, sliced 6 burrito-sized gluten-free tortillas 1 ripe medium avocado, diced 1 large tomato, diced ½ medium red onion, thinly sliced ¼ cup mayonnaise 2 ears sweet corn, husks and silk removed 1 teaspoon olive oil ¾ cup soft cream cheese spread 1-2 teaspoons gluten-free hot sauce of choice Sprouted pea greens, as desired fresh salsa, as desired Directions:
    Heat grill to medium-hot. 
    Brush corn with olive oil. 
    In a small dish, blend mayonnaise and hot sauce. Adjust mixture, and add fresh salsa, as desired.
    Grill corn for 8 to 12 minutes, turning as it browns and lowering heat as needed until corn is tender and charred in some places. 
    Cool slightly; cut kernels from cobs.
    Spread 2 tablespoons cream cheese on one side of each tortilla to within ½-inch of edge; arrange beef slices to cover.
    Spread beef with mayonnaise hot sauce mixture as desired.
    Place a bit of grilled corn kernels, avocado, tomato and red onion in a 3-inch strip along one edge of each tortilla. 
    Fold ends and roll into a burrito shape, and serve. I like to add sweet, crunchy pea greens for some extra crunch and nutrition.

    Celiac.com 07/20/2018 - During my Vipassana retreat, I wasn’t left with much to eat during breakfast, at least in terms of gluten free options. Even with gluten free bread, the toasters weren’t separated to prevent cross contamination. All of my other options were full of sugar (cereals, fruits), which I try to avoid, especially for breakfast. I had to come up with something that did not have sugar, was tasty, salty, and gave me some form of protein. After about four days of mixing and matching, I was finally able to come up with the strangest concoction, that may not look the prettiest, but sure tastes delicious. Actually, if you squint your eyes just enough, it tastes like buttery popcorn. I now can’t stop eating it as a snack at home, and would like to share it with others who are looking for a yummy nutritious snack. 
    Ingredients:
    4 Rice cakes ⅓ cup of Olive oil  Mineral salt ½ cup Nutritional Yeast ⅓ cup of Sunflower Seeds  Intriguing list, right?...
    Directions (1.5 Servings):
    Crunch up the rice into small bite size pieces.  Throw a liberal amount of nutritional yeast onto the pieces, until you see more yellow than white.  Add salt to taste. For my POTS brothers and sisters, throw it on (we need an excess amount of salt to maintain a healthy BP).  Add olive oil  Liberally sprinkle sunflower seeds. This is what adds the protein and crunch, so the more, the tastier.  Buen Provecho, y Buen Camino!

    Celiac.com 07/19/2018 - Maintaining a gluten-free diet can be an on-going challenge, especially when you factor in all the hidden or obscure gluten that can trip you up. In many cases, foods that are naturally gluten-free end up contain added gluten. Sometimes this can slip by us, and that when the suffering begins. To avoid suffering needlessly, be sure to keep a sharp eye on labels, and beware of added or hidden gluten, even in food labeled gluten-free.  Use Celiac.com's SAFE Gluten-Free Food List and UNSAFE Gluten-free Food List as a guide.
    Also, beware of these common mistakes that can ruin your gluten-free diet. Watch out for:
    Watch out for naturally gluten-free foods like rice and soy, that use gluten-based ingredients in processing. For example, many rice and soy beverages are made using barley enzymes, which can cause immune reactions in people with celiac disease. Be careful of bad advice from food store employees, who may be misinformed themselves. For example, many folks mistakenly believe that wheat-based grains like spelt or kamut are safe for celiacs. Be careful when taking advice. Beware of cross-contamination between food store bins selling raw flours and grains, often via the food scoops. Be careful to avoid wheat-bread crumbs in butter, jams, toaster, counter surface, etc. Watch out for hidden gluten in prescription drugs. Ask your pharmacist for help about anything you’re not sure about, or suspect might contain unwanted gluten. Watch out for hidden gluten in lotions, conditioners, shampoos, deodorants, creams and cosmetics, (primarily for those with dermatitis herpetaformis). Be mindful of stamps, envelopes or other gummed labels, as these can often contain wheat paste. Use a sponge to moisten such surfaces. Be careful about hidden gluten in toothpaste and mouthwash. Be careful about common cereal ingredients, such as malt flavoring, or other non-gluten-free ingredient. Be extra careful when considering packaged mixes and sauces, including soy sauce, fish sauce, catsup, mustard, mayonnaise, etc., as many of these can contain wheat or wheat by-product in their manufacture. Be especially careful about gravy mixes, packets & canned soups. Even some brands of rice paper can contain gluten, so be careful. Lastly, watch out for foods like ice cream and yogurt, which are often gluten-free, but can also often contain added ingredients that can make them unsuitable for anyone on a gluten-free diet. Eating Out? If you eat out, consider that many restaurants use a shared grill or shared cooking oil for regular and gluten-free foods, so be careful. Also, watch for flour in otherwise gluten-free spices, as per above. Ask questions, and stay vigilant.

    Celiac.com 07/18/2018 - Despite many studies on immune development in children, there still isn’t much good data on how a mother’s diet during pregnancy and infancy influences a child’s immune development.  A team of researchers recently set out to assess whether changes in maternal or infant diet might influence the risk of allergies or autoimmune disease.
    The team included Vanessa Garcia-Larsen, Despo Ierodiakonou, Katharine Jarrold, Sergio Cunha,  Jennifer Chivinge, Zoe Robinson, Natalie Geoghegan, Alisha Ruparelia, Pooja Devani, Marialena Trivella, Jo Leonardi-Bee, and Robert J. Boyle.
    They are variously associated with the Department of Undiagnosed Celiac Disease More Common in Women and Girls International Health, Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, Baltimore, Maryland, United States of America; the Respiratory Epidemiology, Occupational Medicine and Public Health, National Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College London, London, United Kingdom; the Section of Paediatrics, Department of Medicine, Imperial College London, London, United Kingdom; the Centre for Statistics in Medicine, University of Oxford, Oxford, United Kingdom; the Division of Epidemiology and Public Health, University of Nottingham, Nottingham, United Kingdom; the Centre of Evidence Based Dermatology, University of Nottingham, Nottingham, United Kingdom; and Stanford University in the USA.
    Team members searched MEDLINE, Excerpta Medica dataBASE (EMBASE), Web of Science, Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), and Literatura Latino Americana em Ciências da Saúde (LILACS) for observational studies conducted between January 1946 and July 2013, and interventional studies conducted through December 2017, that evaluated the relationship between diet during pregnancy, lactation, or the first year of life, and future risk of allergic or autoimmune disease. 
    They then selected studies, extracted data, and assessed bias risk. They evaluated data using the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE). They found 260 original studies, covering 964,143 participants, of milk feeding, including 1 intervention trial of breastfeeding promotion, and 173 original studies, covering 542,672 participants, of other maternal or infant dietary exposures, including 80 trials of 26 maternal, 32 infant, or 22 combined interventions. 
    They found a high bias risk in nearly half of the more than 250 milk feeding studies and in about one-quarter of studies of other dietary exposures. Evidence from 19 intervention trials suggests that oral supplementation with probiotics during late pregnancy and lactation may reduce risk of eczema. 44 cases per 1,000; 95% CI 20–64), and 6 trials, suggest that fish oil supplementation during pregnancy and lactation may reduce risk of allergic sensitization to egg. GRADE certainty of these findings was moderate. 
    The team found less evidence, and low GRADE certainty, for claims that breastfeeding reduces eczema risk during infancy, that longer exclusive breastfeeding is associated with reduced type 1 diabetes mellitus, and that probiotics reduce risk of infants developing allergies to cow’s milk. 
    They found no evidence that dietary exposure to other factors, including prebiotic supplements, maternal allergenic food avoidance, and vitamin, mineral, fruit, and vegetable intake, influence risk of allergic or autoimmune disease. 
    Overall, the team’s findings support a connection between the mother’s diet and risk of immune-mediated diseases in the child. Maternal probiotic and fish oil supplementation may reduce risk of eczema and allergic sensitization to food, respectively.
    Stay tuned for more on diet during pregnancy and its role in celiac disease.

    Celiac.com 07/17/2018 - What can fat soluble vitamin levels in newly diagnosed children tell us about celiac disease? A team of researchers recently assessed fat soluble vitamin levels in children diagnosed with newly celiac disease to determine whether vitamin levels needed to be assessed routinely in these patients during diagnosis.
    The researchers evaluated the symptoms of celiac patients in a newly diagnosed pediatric group and evaluated their fat soluble vitamin levels and intestinal biopsies, and then compared their vitamin levels with those of a healthy control group.
    The research team included Yavuz Tokgöz, Semiha Terlemez and Aslıhan Karul. They are variously affiliated with the Department of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, the Department of Pediatrics, and the Department of Biochemistry at Adnan Menderes University Medical Faculty in Aydın, Turkey.
    The team evaluated 27 female, 25 male celiac patients, and an evenly divided group of 50 healthy control subjects. Patients averaged 9 years, and weighed 16.2 kg. The most common symptom in celiac patients was growth retardation, which was seen in 61.5%, with  abdominal pain next at 51.9%, and diarrhea, seen in 11.5%. Histological examination showed nearly half of the patients at grade Marsh 3B. 
    Vitamin A and vitamin D levels for celiac patients were significantly lower than the control group. Vitamin A and vitamin D deficiencies were significantly more common compared to healthy subjects. Nearly all of the celiac patients showed vitamin D insufficiency, while nearly 62% showed vitamin D deficiency. Nearly 33% of celiac patients showed vitamin A deficiency. 
    The team saw no deficiencies in vitamin E or vitamin K1 among celiac patients. In the healthy control group, vitamin D deficiency was seen in 2 (4%) patients, vitamin D insufficiency was determined in 9 (18%) patients. The team found normal levels of all other vitamins in the healthy group.
    Children with newly diagnosed celiac disease showed significantly reduced levels of vitamin D and A. The team recommends screening of vitamin A and D levels during diagnosis of these patients.

    • I say that's proof enough that gluten or at least wheat hurts your body, and that you shouldn't eat it anymore. If you want, you can do what I did when I first thought I might be gluten intolerant or Celiac, go another 3 weeks without eating any of it, being really careful, and then try a piece of bread or even just two bites like you accidentally had at that dinner. If you feel sick again, you know that's what it is. I'm like you and don't have the means to get an actual biopsy of my intestine. I was able to get blood test, but I took them while I was eating gluten-free, because the doctor didn't tell me I should be eating gluten. So that was pretty much useless. But I know my body, and I know that I feel horrible even when I have a tiny bit of gluten. So I just never eat it. I told restaurants that I either have Celiac or at least an allergy, they seem to react to the word allergy, and usually treat me well and treat it like it's serious. While I won't go into anaphylactic shock if I eat it, I will be sick for days, even if that doesn't mean actually throwing up or anything, it will just generally mess up a lot of systems in my body. I used to be just generally gluten-free, never eating bread or noodles, but always being okay with french fries and sauces and Seasonings, I mean just eating that without checking ingredients. Ever since I learned more about celiac, I started to avoid sauces, seasonings, and french fries and the like unless I knew for sure 100% that they were gluten free. I've been asking restaurants if they use shared fryers or not. Anyway, since I started being even more careful, like someone with celiac, I felt even better. I have way less bloating, I'm more regular, and generally I have more energy. It does take time and some trial-and-error, but I think you can definitely take care of yourself without having to go to a doctor. Maybe don't go around flaunting that you have celiac, but still definitely take care of yourself and tell servers, managers, cooks, even your grandma if she cooks dinner for you, that you have a gluten or wheat allergy, you're not lying. It really does negatively affect your body. So be true to yourself and don't worry about what other people say. I hope this helps.
    • Well first I want to say, I seriously sympathize with the OP. Dh doesn't seem to be my "symptom of choice", but in fact the farther I go in and maybe occasionally screw up after longer and longer periods of time... the worse the next reaction is or next withdrawal is. This is so bad ugh  hopefully we get through it soon.   Now... regarding the post I quoted... do you know of a gluten free / soy free brand of Vitamin D? A I suppose too but I don't think from my research that I'm deficient in that one.
    • Hey I know exactly how you feel. I recently came down with this and have had to deal with making others understand it. Also, the whole thing of foods that don't actually contain gluten causing me some kind of reaction. I think once you've loaded up on gluten in your past to the point of having a situation arise that lets you know it's time to quit... your body is so beat up and weakened and then you make this major dietary change... so it's bound to cause kind of a chain reaction and a lot of things will at least temporarily be too hard on your stomach and immune system, many of which will be the common food allergens, aka things that are commonly hard on one's stomach and immune system. At this point I too am tempted to freak out, but I keep telling myself that most of it besides gluten is probably temporary. Do you consume a lot of soy? That's another one I think might linger for me, and if you read much, the overwhelming consensus is that it's lingering in everything and slowly destroying us all haha. That might be a good one to strictly avoid for a longer period of time. Anyway, best wishes on getting through this. We're in the early stages and yeah, it really sucks.
    • I found improvement when I excluded iodine (as in iodized salt and shellfish). Vitamin D and A supplements help, too.  Hope you find relief soon!
