Went to San Francisco yesterday, boy was it a mob scene. I guess it was fleet week. I went with my mom and brother to meet a cousin I hadn't seen since we were kids. Had a great time.

What are bumble bars? ;)

Hi Julie! I see you posting!

Hello Susan: I see you lurking!!!!

Hi Liz

Hi Robbin

Where is everyone tonight?

I know, it does seem rather quiet tonight, all day actually.

I don't know about anyone else, but I am watching the game.

What is fleet week, must fill me in.....

Wow, it is quiet!

I'm just getting ready to go for a walk with my daughter. We're taking a flashlight because we keep seeing coyotes in our neighborhood. I think they want our puppy for dinner, so we won't take him. I love crisp, fall evenings. You all must live east of here, since it's just getting to be evening here now.

Started Specific Carbohydrate Diet on 8-16-09 because son was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and want to give him moral support.

Diagnosed with Minimal Change Nephrotic Syndrome in 2003. Discovered that going completely gluten-free put me in remission.

Andrea - an off the wall question. Is Lingonberries Market worth a drive from Federal Way?

Hmmm, well that would depend on what you are looking for. They sell all sorts of brands.....namaste, gluten-free bakery, kinnikinnick, amy's, etc. I really don't know all the brands.

They carry frozen kinnikinnick, enjoy life, food for life, amy's, rice dream desserts, ians' (is that the gluten free brand), frozen salmon burgers (forget brand), applegate hotdogs, frozen fruit (I think)....I don't remember everything.

Many flour mixes etc, dessert mixes, vance's darifree, cereal, gluten-free oats, muir glen tomatoes, tinkyada and other pastas, some soups, bars (like lara and bumble etc.), cookies, chips, chocolate, some freeda vitamins, the flavorings for coffee, latte's etc, canned beans, other houshold products (but I forget what they are).

Anyway, with the cost of gas it would depend on what you needed/wanted that you couldn't find up there. He's willing to try and get whatever you want. I asked him to carry 5 lb bags of enjoy life chocolate chips....he just got some in (they won't ship those in the hot weather). I really like the store and the owner is super friendly. Of course, if you come down this way, you could stop off for lunch or something. We are about 1 mile off the freeway....about 1/2 hour north of Lingonberries.

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.

Just got back inside from letting out a few good howls at the moon...... :rolleyes:;)

I better behave for two reasons:

1) I don't have my Altoids - gave them to Mom at the hospital to help her heartburn.

2) I wouldn't want to offend anyone who might faint or swoon at the sight of anything even hinting at racy...

<_<:rolleyes:B)

A BOSS WALKED INTO THE OFFICE ONE MORNING NOT KNOWING THAT HIS ZIPPER

WAS DOWN AND HIS FLY AREA IS WIDE OPEN

HIS SECRETARY WALKED UP TO HIM AND SAID "BOSS THIS MORNING WHEN YOU

LEFT

YOUR HOUSE, DID YOU CLOSE YOUR GARAGE DOOR?"

THIS WAS NOT A PHRASE THAT HER BOSS UNDERSTOOD, SO HE WENT INTO HIS

OFFICE LOOKING A BIT PUZZLED

WHEN HE WAS ABOUT DONE WITH HIS PAPERWORK HE SUDDENLY NOTICED THAT HIS

ZIPPER WAS NOT ZIPPED UP

HE ZIPPED UP AND REMEMBERING WHAT HIS SECRETARY HAS TOLD HIM, FINALLY

UNDERSTOOD . THEN HE INTENTIONALLY WENT OUT TO ASK FOR A CUP OF COFFEE

FROM HIS SECRETARY.

WHEN HE REACHED HER DESK, HE SAID

"WHEN YOU SAW THE GARAGE DOOR OPEN DID YOU SEE MY Hummer PARKED IN

THERE?"

THE SECRETARY SMILED FOR A MOMENT AND SAID "

"NO, SIR I DIDN'T,, ALL I SAW WAS A MINI COOPER WITH 2 FLAT TIRES"

These jokes certainly have me laughing. Thanks :)

lonewolf, I don't know where you live, but you do know that the coyotes can jump an 8" fence. And if they run in packs, they are not afraid of humans and would take your puppy away from you. So, that is great that you left him at home. But, the packs also will run in the daytime, not just at night. We have a pack running about 3 miles from us and since they move around, I am extra cautious when my toy poodle goes out. We have a 6" wall and it would mean nothing if a coyote smelled her scent. But, they beat the small scorpion I found in the hall two days ago. My dog was sniffing at it. Just what I would need is her to get bit by one. She already gets her yearly rattlesnake shot. I still love the desert :)

Hey Metta/Ostrich/Hamster Face: Okay, a bit confoozed here...... why would it be so hard for a coyote to jump a 6" or 8" fence? Are they coyotes from Lilliput? :huh:

Hi Tavi- Hhow are ya? Did you see the Blue Angels in Sf?

Hi Beverly:

Well, I went to San Francisco to see a cousin I hadn't seen in probably 35 years and while we were fisherman's warf the blue angels were flying. It was really beautiful. I had never seen them fly before and it was just amazing watching all they could do!

I know, it does seem rather quiet tonight, all day actually.

I don't know about anyone else, but I am watching the game.

What is fleet week, must fill me in.....

Hi Julie:

Fleet week I think is where they open up all the ships from WWII and people can walk through them. Should of seen all the sailors, although some of them looked to be about 12!

OMG, these are just hilarious. You have me laughing so hard, that my dog is looking at me strangely.

Karen. the coyotes find it easy to jump a fence up to 8' high. And Floridian, Bitsy has not had a snake bite yet, but they have a yearly shot that would prevent her from dying if she got bit and so I spend a fortune for that yearly shot. It would give me time to get her to the vet's. Because of her size, she would not make it otherwise. Rattlesnakes have been found in a couple of the townhomes yards. And she is curious enough to go within striking distance.

BTW, this thread is more funny then the full moon one. I can't believe how you all remember these jokes. Keep them coming. Of course, I am going to bed real soon, but I will read the rest in the morning.

OMG, I guess it is time I was going to bed. An 8" fence would probably be too high for me to jump right now :lol: .

The joke that really had me rolling in the aisles is Pinnochio. I had to leave my beloved computer and go tell hubby that one. Then he had to tell me to stop laughing as he can't hear the football game.
