This was the "errant boldness" of which I spoke, and the reason Will finds this pic absolutely hysterical. <_<

Ever seen that commercial for Stanley Steemer with the dog Toby?

Yes!!! So funny!

That's MY lucky number! My locker combination in HS was 27-17-7. And the address of the first house we bought was 2722. It is also in my social security number. And if you take the last name I was born with, replace each letter with the number of it's position in the alphabet, then add the digits of those numbers, you get 27. Don't even get me started on 11. :lol:

............gee..........sounds kinda like Rain Man, huh?

:lol: Lisa, very Rain Man-ish!

Speaking of favorite cereals growing up, I just decided I really miss cereal for breakfast, or a snack...haven't had it for YEARS with all the different food intolerances. I want Grape Nuts!!!!

JEWEL-LY!!!!!!!!! Arnie did a scoot! :o OMG - methinks he either needs the glands expressed, OR *gasp* he has worms............

Weezee missed her butt squeeze on account'a her mom being stuck in bed for two days. This will happen tomorrow, methinks.....

He just got groomed yesterday, cut REALLY short, and had his butt squeezed ...dunno if the stray hairs are irritating the area or what.

OMG. . . . . I was dared to request a friendship with a male name that I had to just arbitrarily think up. So, I thought up "Russel Smythe", punched him in, and there were several. I picked the Canadian Russel, and sent the friend request. Incredible, but he accepted.

So, now I know when Russ is heading out to play hockey, when he's taking back his library books, how his afternoon home from work is going. . . . ..... :huh::lol:

Haven't sent him any drinks or hugs as yet, nor have I poked nor smacked him... ..

Think you should all ask to be his friend, as well. :lol:

He's very likely celiac.....who isn't, after all?

OMG, hysterical :lol::lol: .......is Russel of age, and is he cute?!?!

I hear ya on the slipping into classy skin, I am so out of my element to in those situations.

Sometimes people hardly know how often I usually fart. It's never loud. Occassionally, I'll fart frequently, but they rarely notice. :P

Can you do it in less than 20 words? :lol:

Someone's been takin' her Omega-3!!!

I just don't know how to slip into a classy skin. . . .... :rolleyes:

Why don't you just wear what you've got on in yer av?? . . . or did you wear that at the last classy event that you went to?? . . . in which case, just change it up a bit and add a shawl and different shoes.

Tom, meant to answer your Facebook question earlier....your statuses will remain on your profile page, on your home page they are changed out as the news feed updates/rolls over..........does that make sense?

Oh and Emily if you don't have insurance you either pay out of pocket or you are SOL and don't get to receive medical care. One trip to the ER cost me over a thousand buckaroos (and absolutely nothing was accomplished <_< ). They do have various programs to help with the non-insured/low income...filled out the papers for my ER visit and was denied.

Oy, too worn out for much thinking/posting, but I'll give it a go. [i think it took an hour . ...pretty slow brain day]

Too many posts worth commenting on, but brain not up for it.

That Mayo is like an assembly line. Big-ass campus, no idea how many bldgs.

Go to that end of the bldg for appt check-in.

Back to this end for Scheduling, in a big room that looks and acts like a DMV office. "Mr. Murphy to window 7"

Up a floor or 2 for GI dept.

Window 3 this time.

Phorms.

Wait.

Pretty good doc, btw. Best GI I've ever met, certainly.

He mentioned HLA typing & when I simply mentioned DQ2/DQ8 he says "are you an engineer?" da noiv!! All celiacs w/ any online time should know DQ2/DQ8.

He didn't know if it'll be both alpha & beta. :(

(I don't have much desire to know my DQs anyway - too much research needed there)

Back to Scheduling for a piece of paper. Down a floor for Radiology & Blood Lab. Wait here, wait there, 6 vials, wait here & there & there, smocked up, do chest x-ray for some reason.

Back to the DMV . ....errrrrrrr .. . . Scheduling.

They were trying to get an endoscopy, colonoscopy, MRI/MRCP, & some other stuff all in tomorrow, but GI is full so no -oscopies (oscopii?) this time.

At least half & maybe 90% of all this is useless, but wtf, checkin' everything.

<me brain just wants to go into standby mode>

*******

A conversation w/ mom:

Me "Then a u-turn at 136th." [We'd already crossed 82nd, 90th, 10-somethin']

Mom "*I* [from "you-turn" of course] turn at 1:36? Won't we be late?"

"A U-turn, ya know, reversing direction. At 136th St."

"To the right?"

"Uhhhhhhh . ...<wondering why I even need to be in this conv> .. ..to the left, mom"

**************

Lisa!!!! 20 words?!!! Quite impressive .. . .I can't try tonight tho. Maybe last week it'd've been worth a shot.

Julily works ok duddinit? ;)

Good Morning, Psillies!

I do recall this line of boobage discussion. Now moi.....I'd choose a tummy tuck

Oh, gawd. . . ...me, as well. I would love to have all my stomach flab pushed up to my boob area, and just trapped there. Just a simple rearranging of phat, really. :rolleyes:

OMG, hysterical .......is Russel of age, and is he cute?!?!

Um. . .. . .actually, methinks he may have cancelled our friendship. :unsure::rolleyes: He no longer seems to be in my collection of Friends, though he sat proudly there for a couple of months.

He probably got to thinking, "Now, this just doesn't feel right. Don't know this woman. . ... .... what if I am just the subject of some lame, humiliating dare? An arbitrary name they've thought up, had a few good laughs over?? They break into squeals of laughter when they read all about what I'm 'currently doing right now' - - that I've just taken out the garbage, that my constipation has subsided... .. .They're probably JUST LAUGHING AT ME!! Well, I'll show you - - I'm NO LONGER your friend!"

And thus, the end of the Russell Smythe chapter.

Think I'll request his Friendship again. :lol::lol:

Why don't you just wear what you've got on in yer av?? . . . or did you wear that at the last classy event that you went to?? . . . in which case, just change it up a bit and add a shawl and different shoes.

YES! I could slip into a classy skin by slipping into my tiger and leopard skins. . . .....it's a plan worth considering.

Now, real class would also entail William following me around the hall or ballroom all evening, hand affixed to my boob..... .

Oh and Emily if you don't have insurance you either pay out of pocket or you are SOL and don't get to receive medical care. One trip to the ER cost me over a thousand buckaroos (and absolutely nothing was accomplished ). They do have various programs to help with the non-insured/low income...filled out the papers for my ER visit and was denied.

OMG. . . this just gets worse and worse....how do self-employed or laid-off, ill Americans get medical care?? I suppose many don't. . . .... :(:o

Glad things are happening at Mayo, Ptaoughmghmnuss!

Jeez.....is yer mom out drivin' the roads very often?? Yikes. . .. ..! :huh:;)

Really Em, the sad truth is that many Americans can't afford to get sick. It's outrageously expensive for an individual or an individual family to buy health insurance. :(

Phorgot to report The Ripper's phabulous ponderable question from yesterday: We were out walking the dogs, and were passing by a construction site. As we went by a porta-potty, Jack suddenly asked, "So, Mom. . . . . if you were going to the bathroom in one of those and your cellphone dropped into the hole, would you fish it out?"

OMG, that is SOOOOOO gross. . .. .... .

I said that I didn't know, but probably . .. . :gagface:... . would try to toilet-paper-glove it . .. .....

Emily . . . Thomn and Paddee have got it covered . . . couldn't agree more . . . not touchin' that fone wif a 10 foot poo-pickin' toothpick pole.

From me mum:

If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Delta Airlines one year ago, you would have $49.00 today.

If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in AIG one year ago, you would have $33.00 today.

If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Lehman Brothers one year ago, you would have $0.00 today.

BUT, if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the aluminum cans for recycling refunds, you would have received $214.00.

Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink heavily and recycle. It is called the 401-Keg.

A recent study found that the average American walks about 900 miles a year. Another study found that Americans drink, on average, 22 gallons of alcohol a year. That means that, on average, Americans get about 41 miles to the gallon!

Makes you proud to be an American!

"So, Mom. . . . . if you were going to the bathroom in one of those and your cellphone dropped into the hole, would you fish it out?"

I would report that a thief/miscreant had ripped it out of my hand as s/he ran by and flung it into a nearby port-a-potty. When asked to describe said miscreant I would come up with someone whom I really disliked and had a high probability of being in the neighborhood. I would ask that as punishment, that person be required to fish out my phone and recover the lost data.

    Celiac.com 04/23/2018 - A team of researchers recently set out to learn whether celiac disease patients commonly suffer cognitive impairment at the time they are diagnosed, and to compare their cognitive performance with non-celiac subjects with similar chronic symptoms and to a group of healthy control subjects.
    The research team included G Longarini, P Richly, MP Temprano, AF Costa, H Vázquez, ML Moreno, S Niveloni, P López, E Smecuol, R Mazure, A González, E Mauriño, and JC Bai. They are variously associated with the Small Bowel Section, Department of Medicine, Dr. C. Bonorino Udaondo Gastroenterology Hospital; Neurocience Cognitive and Traslational Institute (INECO), Favaloro Fundation, CONICET, Buenos Aires; the Brain Health Center (CESAL), Quilmes, Argentina; the Research Council, MSAL, CABA; and with the Research Institute, School of Medicine, Universidad del Salvador.
    The team enrolled fifty adults with symptoms and indications of celiac disease in a prospective cohort without regard to the final diagnosis.  At baseline, all individuals underwent cognitive functional and psychological evaluation. The team then compared celiac disease patients with subjects without celiac disease, and with healthy controls matched by sex, age, and education.
    Celiac disease patients had similar cognitive performance and anxiety, but no significant differences in depression scores compared with disease controls.
    A total of thirty-three subjects were diagnosed with celiac disease. Compared with the 26 healthy control subjects, the 17 celiac disease subjects, and the 17 disease control subjects, who mostly had irritable bowel syndrome, showed impaired cognitive performance (P=0.02 and P=0.04, respectively), functional impairment (P<0.01), and higher depression (P<0.01). 
    From their data, the team noted that any abnormal cognitive functions they saw in adults with newly diagnosed celiac disease did not seem not to be a result of the disease itself. 
    Their results indicate that cognitive dysfunction in celiac patients could be related to long-term symptoms from chronic disease, in general.

    Celiac.com 04/21/2018 - Dear Friends and Readers,
    I have been writing articles for Scott Adams since the 2002 Summer Issue of the Scott-Free Press. The Scott-Free Press evolved into the Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. I felt honored when Scott asked me ten years ago to contribute to his quarterly journal and it's been a privilege to write articles for his publication ever since.
    Due to personal health reasons and restrictions, I find that I need to retire. My husband and I can no longer travel the country speaking at conferences and to support groups (which we dearly loved to do) nor can I commit to writing more books, articles, or menus. Consequently, I will no longer be contributing articles to the Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. 
    My following books will still be available at Amazon.com:
    Gluten-free Cooking for Dummies Student's Vegetarian Cookbook for Dummies Wheat-free Gluten-free Dessert Cookbook Wheat-free Gluten-free Reduced Calorie Cookbook Wheat-free Gluten-free Cookbook for Kids and Busy Adults (revised version) My first book was published in 1996. My journey since then has been incredible. I have met so many in the celiac community and I feel blessed to be able to call you friends. Many of you have told me that I helped to change your life – let me assure you that your kind words, your phone calls, your thoughtful notes, and your feedback throughout the years have had a vital impact on my life, too. Thank you for all of your support through these years.

    Celiac.com 04/20/2018 - A digital media company and a label data company are teaming up to help major manufacturers target, reach and convert their desired shoppers based on dietary needs, such as gluten-free diet. The deal could bring synergy in emerging markets such as the gluten-free and allergen-free markets, which represent major growth sectors in the global food industry. 
    Under the deal, personalized digital media company Catalina will be joining forces with Label Insight. Catalina uses consumer purchases data to target shoppers on a personal base, while Label Insight works with major companies like Kellogg, Betty Crocker, and Pepsi to provide insight on food label data to government, retailers, manufacturers and app developers.
    "Brands with very specific product benefits, gluten-free for example, require precise targeting to efficiently reach and convert their desired shoppers,” says Todd Morris, President of Catalina's Go-to-Market organization, adding that “Catalina offers the only purchase-based targeting solution with this capability.” 
    Label Insight’s clients include food and beverage giants such as Unilever, Ben & Jerry's, Lipton and Hellman’s. Label Insight technology has helped the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) build the sector’s very first scientifically accurate database of food ingredients, health attributes and claims.
    Morris says the joint partnership will allow Catalina to “enhance our dataset and further increase our ability to target shoppers who are currently buying - or have shown intent to buy - in these emerging categories,” including gluten-free, allergen-free, and other free-from foods.
    The deal will likely make for easier, more precise targeting of goods to consumers, and thus provide benefits for manufacturers and retailers looking to better serve their retail food customers, especially in specialty areas like gluten-free and allergen-free foods.

    Celiac.com 04/19/2018 - Previous genome and linkage studies indicate the existence of a new disease triggering mechanism that involves amino acid metabolism and nutrient sensing signaling pathways. In an effort to determine if amino acids might play a role in the development of celiac disease, a team of researchers recently set out to investigate if plasma amino acid levels differed among children with celiac disease compared with a control group.
     
    The research team included Åsa Torinsson Naluai, Ladan Saadat Vafa, Audur H. Gudjonsdottir, Henrik Arnell, Lars Browaldh, and Daniel Agardh. They are variously affiliated with the Institute of Biomedicine, Department of Microbiology & Immunology, Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, Gothenburg, Sweden; the Institute of Clinical Sciences, Sahlgrenska Academy at the University of Gothenburg, Gothenburg, Sweden; the Department of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, Karolinska University Hospital and Division of Pediatrics, CLINTEC, Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden; the Department of Clinical Science and Education, Karolinska Institute, Sodersjukhuset, Stockholm, Sweden; the Department of Mathematical Sciences, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden; the Diabetes & Celiac Disease Unit, Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University, Malmö, Sweden; and with the Nathan S Kline Institute in the U.S.A.
    First, the team used liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS) to analyze amino acid levels in fasting plasma samples from 141 children with celiac disease and 129 non-celiac disease controls. They then crafted a general linear model using age and experimental effects as covariates to compare amino acid levels between children with celiac disease and non-celiac control subjects.
    Compared with the control group, seven out of twenty-three children with celiac disease showed elevated levels of the the following amino acids: tryptophan; taurine; glutamic acid; proline; ornithine; alanine; and methionine.
    The significance of the individual amino acids do not survive multiple correction, however, multivariate analyses of the amino acid profile showed significantly altered amino acid levels in children with celiac disease overall and after correction for age, sex and experimental effects.
    This study shows that amino acids can influence inflammation and may play a role in the development of celiac disease.

    Celiac.com 04/18/2018 - To the relief of many bewildered passengers and crew, no more comfort turkeys, geese, possums or other questionable pets will be flying on Delta or United without meeting the airlines' strict new requirements for service animals.
    If you’ve flown anywhere lately, you may have seen them. People flying with their designated “emotional support” animals. We’re not talking genuine service animals, like seeing eye dogs, or hearing ear dogs, or even the Belgian Malinois that alerts its owner when there is gluten in food that may trigger her celiac disease.
    Now, to be honest, some of those animals in question do perform a genuine service for those who need emotional support dogs, like veterans with PTSD.
    However, many of these animals are not service animals at all. Many of these animals perform no actual service to their owners, and are nothing more than thinly disguised pets. Many lack proper training, and some have caused serious problems for the airlines and for other passengers.
    Now the major airlines are taking note and introducing stringent requirements for service animals.
    Delta was the first to strike. As reported by the New York Times on January 19: “Effective March 1, Delta, the second largest US airline by passenger traffic, said it will require passengers seeking to fly with pets to present additional documents outlining the passenger’s need for the animal and proof of its training and vaccinations, 48 hours prior to the flight.… This comes in response to what the carrier said was a 150 percent increase in service and support animals — pets, often dogs, that accompany people with disabilities — carried onboard since 2015.… Delta said that it flies some 700 service animals a day. Among them, customers have attempted to fly with comfort turkeys, gliding possums, snakes, spiders, and other unusual pets.”
    Fresh from an unsavory incident with an “emotional support” peacock incident, United Airlines has followed Delta’s lead and set stricter rules for emotional support animals. United’s rules also took effect March 1, 2018.
    So, to the relief of many bewildered passengers and crew, no more comfort turkeys, geese, possums or other questionable pets will be flying on Delta or United without meeting the airlines' strict new requirements for service and emotional support animals.
