KL Terry,

First off, when you change your signature, it will update in every post...just so you know :). I think your problem is about not closing open tags. First, type whatever you want to say, then highlight whatever you want and make it a different color, change the font, etc. When you're done, it should say Open Tags: 0 at the top, where you can press B, I, U, FONT, SIZE, etc. Also, you could just click on the font, color, etc., type everything, then hit "close all tags" If you don't close the tag, then you see the writing the way it is right now, like this:

Hello KKLYN and James 233. In order for your location to travel with you in all the posts you will need to Click on your "user name" and then Click on "My Controls", You can add your location in there and it will show up anywhere in this forum. Then when we are discussing food and restaurants, we will have an idea of where we are all at :P

:) Well I'm a bit further down south, and I don't mean Texas or Alabama!

I'm DOWN UNDER but not in the Outback.

Right on the Sunshine Coast of beautiful Queensland in the great land of OZ. ;):D

I'm from Maryland near washington D.C. I'm pretty lucky because we have several stores with alot of gluten-free stuff. Even our major grocery store chain, GIANT sells alot of organic (and some gluten-free) items.

This idea sounds great, Wendy

Hello; Can we get this going again? I just read a couple of posts with a store name listed and a product line and I looked for the name of the area of the person posting and it wasn't there. It's so much easier if we can see where you are posting from, as there is little point in us looking for a certain store if it is in Austrailia, or the Southern US when we live in Canada. The same holds true if we Canadians post, the stores and products may not be in your location. :rolleyes:

Very cool! I was wondering how everyone got their name and history to show up. I knew everyone couldn't be just retyping it over and over! :lol:

This is great Kimberly and Susan! Hopefully we can get everyone to do it, then we won't have to guess, or ask which area the product, or store is in :D

I'm in an area of West Georgia that used to be rural but has recently been designated an exurb (who knew that word even existed until recently???) of Atlanta. Best I can tell, an exurb is a little further out than a suburb but is not quite rural anymore.

Well, like Maggie, I'm a whole lot further South, in New Zealand B)

It doesn't worry me that I can't get the products that you talk about but it does give me ideas for the kinds of things I can adapt for myself and for things I can substitute for products that used to be part of my diet.

This is a little off this topic but I do wonder what kind of diets folks ate before they were diagnosed (particularly those diagnosed later in life). I mean wether you consider you ate a high fibre diet or if you were strong on fruits or strong on vegetables, sweet things or what?

Anyway keep posting and I'll keep reading.

We'll be in San Francisco, Edmonton, Toronto and Vancouver during late July and August, so I may be able to try some of the products you write about :lol:

tonyevans ~ I was never a big bread eater before discovering the celiac disease. I ate mostly fruit, salads, casseroles, tacos, meat, etc. Not big into the bread family. BUT, it has always amazed me all the things that have gluten that I use to LOVE to eat before... that has been my grief in this ordeal. Bread?? Don't miss it at all ~ except for raisin bread. LOVE that!! :)
