Hi all

I'm not back. I'm Bulgaria at the black sea coast. It's just still too hot to sleep and the hostel has free internet. I'll be back in about a week and a half. I'm just doing a quick catchup on the news.

Yay a new post!!!

And LOL I was just popping in to post to YOU nikki, that you'd be proud - I just used "sodding" in another thread. :P

http://www.glutenfreeforum.com/index.php?s...mp;#entry317041

:lol:

Ahhhh the dreaded Algernon Effect.

I've been meaning to post about it in OMG but what I wrote got so off-track & extremely lengthy I didn't want to post it.

Short version is that it refers to the book "Flowers for Algernon" and the resulting movie "Charly".

[Edited for seriousness - long version @OMG thread]

YEAH! New posts of silliness!!!!!!! Bout time.

Nikki- Love the new pic! handsome couple indeed!

Tom- Algernon effect :( It's tough! I think there's actually a medical term for it

OK- must keep laughing so on with the jokes- courtesy of Uncle ray:

Never leave your nuts alone

A doctor at an insane asylum decided to take his patients

to a baseball game.

For weeks in advance, he coached his patients to respond to his commands.

When the day of the game arrived. Everything went quite well.

As the National Anthem started, the doctor yelled,

"Up Nuts", and the patients complied by standing up.

After the anthem, he yelled, "Down Nuts", and they all sat back down in their seats.

After a home run was hit, the doctor yelled, "Cheer Nuts". They all broke out into applause and cheered.

When the umpire made a particularly bad call against the star of the home team,

the Doctor yelled, "Booooo Nuts" and they all started booing and cat calling.

Comfortable with their response, the doctor decided to go get a beer and a hot dog,

leaving his assistant in charge.

When he returned, there was a riot in progress. Finding his tizzied assistant,

the doctor asked, "What in the world happened?"

The assistant replied,

"Well everything was going just fine until this guy walked by and yelled,

"PEANUTS!"

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

My dad just sent me this:

An elderly couple was attending church services. About halfway through she leans over and says to her husband,

"I just let out a silent fart. What do you think I should do?"

He replies "Put a new battery in your hearing aid."
