And, Floridian, I hope I look as good as you when I hit 40!

I didn't look as good as her when I hit 30. :P

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.

I admit, my daughter looks a lot like me.....but I don't think I look quite that young. Boy the tazorac cream that Susan is using must really be working for me. :lol::lol:

I never wear nail polish, it makes me feel like my fingernails can't breath.

And that is a beautiful photo of you and your grandbaby, you are obviously a fabulous woman. :)

I don't wear it on my nails ... only my toes. I feel the same way about it on my nails ... like they're suffocating!

Ok, so now we have three of us. I used to wear clear a long, long, long time ago.....Once upon a time, in a time far, far away.......about 20-25 years ago. :P

HI Laura J - - yes, totally random.....silly stuff....maybe we'll have a big point to all of it one day.....ha ha ...most likely not ;) (not that we don't discuss serious stuff ever - we do)

Mouse - - the tazorac is prescription, adn I don't know how it will address wrinkles - in my family, the women don't wrinkle much (I still have very oily skin). But dang, did we bake ourselves in teh sun...and long after my friends quit baking in the sun, I was hanging off granite and baking even more. :o I do know that for really deep wrinkles, only laser procedures and/or surgery can help. For fine wrinkles, definitely get Retin A or Renova. We saw a picture of you earlier....I think your wrinkles - laugh lines - were really lovely...you should never lose those! :)

I think I am going to enjoy a glass of wine on this lovely, gray Sunday. So few pleasures....you know, I quit totally for a while, and now can occasionally drink a glass and not want more - no problem. In fact, I don't think about or miss my wine as I used to.

If only the same thing could happen with chocolate and the potato chips..... :ph34r:

edit: - now FOUR of us - except I do ALWAYS have nude color on my toes......

Interesting about the nail polish--I only wear it on my toes, too. Right now, it's clear, but I like to try out different colors.

I usually don't wear it on my fingernails--maybe for very special occasions, but normally I don't. I keep them filed and buffed, though. I think they look healthy.

My fingernails grow very long. They just grow so fast that I can hardly keep them short. I usually end up cutting then filing, but ocassionally I'll put some polish on them if we're going out. It does't usually last more than a day or two though. People are generally amazed that they're natural and so long! I just don't think they need polish!

my toes are almost always a shade of mauve. Even why I buy new colors, they are all in the same family. I don't do well with change :)

(I say this as I am surrounded by boxes because we are moving next weekend!)

I envy you long-nailed women. I bite mine so bad, its embarrassing.

Someone told me recently that someone she was related to bit their nails so bad they were having all kinds of stomach problems ... ended up being from the nails rotting in her stomach! She had to have surgery! Keep that in mind when you bite them and it will be easy to stop!!! My great-grandmother knew someone who had a ball of nails in her stomach, too. Yuck!

Just trying to help ... ;):rolleyes:

I have no idea. When she told me, I thought it was so disgusting, but I told my nail-biter son (the same one that's a liar, too, constantly lies, distresses me terribly), but it didn't help.

Wow, Carla, you are my new official mother on the board!!!!!! She used just about every trick in the book to get me to stop as a kid (and obviously, none worked.) Thanks for the 'encouragement", MOM :)

Susan, We have been in Virginia Beach for a year (moved here after I finished graduate school). Didn't have a real "plan"---go figure. Decided this summer we would start looking more long term (had a great job here, just didn't see a lot of growth). A perfect job (a master's level psychology/research position) opened at a defense agency in Northern Virginia. Couldn't resist! Plus, I am a Navy brat, and we had been stationed in DC/VA when I was younger. My parents bought a house there and had kept it and rented it out since the early 80s (the area is BEYOND expensive. BEYOND BEYOND BEYOND. Ugh!) They are wonderful and are renting it to us. It literally all fell into place. I got the job, and start on the 16th. I'm nervous, but excited. Happy cause it's not my first official job (got that one under my belt, woo hoo!) but nervous -and THRILLED - because its more in my field and I have to get my social science hat back on (nervous that I'm rusty).

Probably more than you ever wanted to know, but I'm good for that. :)

Nope, Laura, really good info....my best friends from Monterey moved to Fredericksburg almost three years ago....I have a free plane ticket any time I'm ready to go. They both work in DC and the husband actually briefs people at the pentagon on military safety and tanks and stuff.....um....not sure what he does as if he told me he'd have to kill me..... :lol: Anywho they love it back there....I think you will too.

Am watching Syriana.....I have no idea what is goign on. :lol: I have a difficult time wtih SIMPLE plots and this one....well I THINK it's a good movie but just beyond me. Even Ebert and Roper said they were confused in parts but evidently they could comprehend THE WHOLE....I cannot.

Signing off, I think, and gonna start the movie over.....not that that will help. ;)
