Bev, OMGosh! ROFLMAO!! I bet you didn't want to be touched there for a week!!

Richard, did your wife nurse your children? If so, hers probably left just like mine did. I didn't used to have to have stuff like duct tape for cleavage, but after five kids (the sixth was adopted), there's nothing left! So, when Morgan teases me about my nothingness, I tell her to just wait, I used to have them, too!!

Okay, now I'm getting teased because Morgan is putting music on my Ipod, that I've had since early last summer but have no music on. Now I'm going to have to learn to use the darn thing.

Went to Maggianos for dinner tonight ... three glasses of pinot noir, that's a lot for me these days, but I was out with my in-laws. Didn't see your mojo or anyone else's Susan. Glad you found yours Richard, no one at all had any at dinner. Except for maybe my future SIL who doesn't speak English ... she speaks Portuguese, and understands my Spanish, but her accent is funny so I have to keep asking her what she's saying. Very cute, latin women definately have mojo, I could learn something.

OMG so true! I want to be Penelope Cruz or Selma Hayek in my next life.......they are both beautiful and full of mojo. One year for halloween my husband and I went as Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera....I made a pretty darn good Frida once I drew in the uni-brow. But I'd rather look like Penelope Cruz.....she's like a Spanish Audrey Hepburn (my other idol).

Senate Designates September 13 National Celiac Disease Awareness Day

109TH CONGRESS

2D SESSION S. RES. 563

Designating September 13, 2006, as ‘‘National Celiac Disease Awareness

Day’’.

IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES

SEPTEMBER 8, 2006

Mr. INHOFE (for himself and Mr. NELSON of Nebraska) submitted the

following resolution; which was considered and agreed to

RESOLUTION

Designating September 13, 2006, as ‘‘National Celiac

Disease Awareness Day’’.

Whereas celiac disease affects 2,200,000 people in the United

States, including 1 in 133 healthy people;

Whereas celiac disease is an intolerance to gluten, a protein

found in wheat, rye, oats, and barley, as well as some

medicines and vitamins; :huh:

Whereas exposure to gluten damages the villi of the small intestine,

interfering with the absorption of nutrients in

food;

Whereas celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder and a malabsorption

disease;

Whereas celiac disease is a genetic disease, with 1 in 22 people

having a first-degree relative with celiac disease;

VerDate Aug 31 2005 22:30 Sep 12, 2006 Jkt 049200 PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 6652 Sfmt 6300 E:\BILLS\SR563.ATS SR563 sroberts on PROD1PC70 with BILLS

2

•SRES 563 ATS

Whereas the average length of time it takes for a symptomatic

person to be diagnosed with celiac disease is 11

years;

Whereas celiac disease is often misdiagnosed and underdiagnosed

due to the fact that symptoms can be attributed

to other conditions and many doctors are not very

knowledgeable about the disease;

Whereas, according to a study, 60 percent of children and 41

percent of adults diagnosed with celiac disease were

asymptomatic;

Whereas celiac disease is diagnosed through tests measuring

the blood for abnormally high levels of the antibodies of

immunoglobulin A, anti-tissue transglutaminase, and IgA

anti-endomysium antibodies;

Whereas celiac disease is treated by following a gluten-free

diet;

Whereas damage to the small intestine leads to an increased

risk for malnutrition, anemia, lymphoma and adenocarcinoma,

osteoporosis, miscarriage and congenital malformation,

and short stature;

Whereas celiac disease is linked to many autoimmune disorders,

including thyroid disease, systemic lupus

erythematosus, type 1 diabetes, liver disease, collagen

vascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and Sjo¬gren’s syndrome;

Whereas the connection between celiac disease and diet was

first established by Dr. Samuel Gee, who was born on

September 13, 1839; and

Whereas the Senate is an institution that can raise awareness

in the general public and the medical community of celiac

disease: Now, therefore, be it

VerDate Aug 31 2005 22:30 Sep 12, 2006 Jkt 049200 PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 6652 Sfmt 6300 E:\BILLS\SR563.ATS SR563 sroberts on PROD1PC70 with BILLS

•SRES 563 ATS

Resolved, That the Senate— 1

(1) designates September 13, 2006, as ‘‘Na- 2

tional Celiac Disease Awareness Day’’; 3

(2) recognizes that all people of the United 4

States should become more informed and aware of 5

celiac disease; 6 :huh:

(3) calls upon the people of the United States 7

to observe the date with appropriate ceremonies and 8

activities; :) and 9(4) respectfully requests the Secretary of the 10

Senate to transmit a copy of this resolution to the 11

Celiac Sprue Association, the American Celiac Soci- 12

ety, the Celiac Disease Foundation, the Gluten Intol- 13

erance Group of North America, and the Oklahoma 14

Celiac Support Group. 15

No wonder it takes so long for anything to get done in Washington - or should I say Whereas nothing gets done in a timely fashion, and Whereas all proper sentences begin with "and whereas", and whereas, we truly know nothing about this disease and whereas we have a fact sheet here, and whereas said fact sheet is not copyrighted and where as noone will probably take the time to read this and whereas as recess is fast approaching and whereas September 13, 2006 has been designated National Celiac Disease Awareness Day yada yada yada

And I missed the party :(

OK, Why anyone would want to look like that on purpose is beyond me.

I'm afraid I might not get any work done (or even less than I do now :huh: ) with that on my desk :D:P:ph34r::o

I hate to ruin the surprise, but I found this for you Bev. I know how hard you took it when you found yours amongst mom's cleaning rags. :( How brave of you to continue wearing it even after it was so abused. I think you'll really like this one. It's only slightly worn (most of the stains came out :) ) and you can hardly smell the previous owner :) . Sorry I couldn't find the Gene Simmons mask you really wanted. Maybe next year. ;)

Carla, I see you here too. I have something for you too. I was going to get you a sauna, but I see you already have one. So I got the next best thing - the latest in saunawear. Be the first in your neighborhood to be seen in these cozy togs. Jogging suits are sooooo last week! :P
