No....it involved religious discussions, I think. that specific thread has been removed. Harumph! I want Vincent back - - I begged him to at least get his mullett-ed self back to 40-something...too much pressure on Richard to sustain ALL the testosterone.........

Too bad! :(

What's going on lately?? :huh:

gotta clean my house, Stepford neighbor is coming by this morning :o:ph34r:

LOL!! :lol:

I've got one of those too!!

Perfect house, perfect kids, oh man-oh so perfect.

Happy Birthday Tavi! What's a number anyway - it's all about attitude.

Susan - I live south of Seattle. We used to be considered rural, lots of trees everywhere, everyone has at least 1/3 acre, etc. Weyerhaeuser decided to develop some big chunks of land and flattened everything all around our neighborhood. Six houses to an acre! Huge houses with only 10 feet in between them, 6 feet at the eves (sp?).

Rusla - I agree - I actually feel sorry for the coyotes. They lived in those woods with no problems for longer than we've been here, now they're starving and have no place to go. The problem is that our old neighborhood has big yards and lots of wooded areas so they can hide, so they all came here and are eating cats, chickens and anything else they can find. But they can't have my puppy!

Andrea - at some point I might make a trip down to Lingonberries to find stocking stuffers for my kids. It might be cheaper than paying shipping on things like licorice. I'll combine it with a trip to Centralia to the outlet mall there. It would be fun to meet you!

I missed the thread that Vincent had a problem on - is he gone for good? I hope not.

no.....I have a key to her house, she has called me from teh road to let her dog out....IT IS PERFECT - - a sink/countertop/stove that look as though they've never been used...I think she is appalled by my unfinished projects, doesn't comprehend that creativity works at its own pace.....and me? I work even MORE slowly these days...... :lol: Maybe I'll run over there and give her back her...what's it called....some electric sawing thing - to circumvent her trip to my house...brillinat idea!

Liz - - I LOVE SEATTLE and all environs - tried to move there - 15 years ago applied for teaching job on Bainbridge Island - - OMG - when I drove onto Bainbridge, I literally wept - felt as though I'd come home. Can't explain it - have never felt that anywhere else in such an overwhelming way. Maybe I need to vacation there and find a single man with a fabulous cabin-ish abode...

Bev - what say you? ;):lol:

It's definitely beautiful up here, but we try to tell everyone it rains all the time so too many people don't move here. Well, that hasn't worked, it's getting overcrowded... Anyway, I love Puget Sound and all the islands. Have you ever been to the San Juans? I never get tired of our annual camping trip up there.

I hope you have a very happy Birthday, Tavi! :)

I just popped in briefly....I now have internet, phone, and cable TV! I'm surrounded by boxes but I'll be able to check in every so often. I enjoyed the jokes----I need them right now!

By the way-What is Daily Strength? Numerous people have mentioned it and I don't know what site it is?

Back to boxes....but it feels like home already. Now we just have to find my husband a job so he can move up here...its going to get lonely real quick!

Hope yall have a great day....

xoxo

Thanks Laura

I just googled daily strength but haven't had any luck getting on the site yet. I think it's a site for daily strength through a christian perspective. I see a few people from this site posting there. I am trying to check it out but can't seem to get through the sign up process

Um, if 20's are ish-ish, wouldn't she be ish-ish-ish (or ish to the 3rd power)?

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.

Hey Carla, you must have done something right. :P

Well, since I don't come to celiac.com very often anymore, Mom keeps me updated on where the good conversations are. I heard that this was the place....I wasn't planning on writing anything though until I saw all the "happy birthdays"

The ish's are confusing me :huh: Do you get an ish if you're not forty, yet you still come on? (And thanks for your Fabul-ish Julie :D )

You have been very busy since I've been gone!!

Yes, Morgan is an ish-ish-ish!! And we do hate her hair -- it's always so ugly :rolleyes: She gets up in the morning and it looks great ... I try to fix mine, and it looks like I just got up.

Thanks Andrea ... I musta done something right .... don't know when that happened! :P

Hi MO!!! Did you have fun with Daddy yesterday????

Do you get an ish if you're not forty, yet you still come on?

Yes, if you're in your thirties, you're an ish ... 20's is an ish-ish. As in 40 ish, ish.
