Ohhhhhh.......we'll catch whoever did this.  Don't mess with a Patriot from Boston!  It may take awhile but we'll find 'em.

 

Prayers of recovery to all those injured and our hearts to those who died.  :(

As the story continues to unfold, my heart continues to break a little more...and the anger within me builds.....fury, really. Prayers from up here to all those injured and lost.  Ottawa holds the biggest Canadian race weekend in a couple of weeks, and my family is involved -- my son and husband are volunteering throughout, stationed right at the finish line. We refuse to have this horrific act change where we go and what we do, but somehow things will never feel the same at these international events.....

Sending thoughts and prayers to the families and those affected.

 

I am so sorry another city has had to go through this. I lived in London for many years, and hated the threat of attacks like this. The various attacks there were far too close to home. The London marathon is this weekend. May it be a safe and happy event. Each year, amateur runners raise a huge amount of money for charity at this event.

 

Strength going forward to all of Boston.

Why are kids always getting killed and hurt in this country?  I don't understand the mindset of people who...ugh.  It makes me sad.

 

Thoughts and prayers to our world to be kind.

My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected.

What a very sad and frightening world we live in and explaining to a child the kind of world he's growing up in is so difficult when hes still so innocent and believes the good in people.

There's so much I want to say but feel too saddened, angry and yet speechless.

God bless

Homegrown for the past ten years :(

 

Stay safe Boston!  We all know how strong you are.  Our family stands with you.

 

For me....Oklahoma, Columbine, 911 combined to make me very fearful for about two years while my children were quite young...fearful of the world we were leaving my babies -- those babies are now 18 and 19 years old -- they have grown in the shadow of these events and I am proud to say are strong, brave young men.

 

I am no longer fearful of what is happening in this world -- I am a member of my local CERT team and suggest to everyone I meet.....prepare.

 

Do not be fearful -- be prepared and remain watchful -- if you see something "fishy" wherever you live in this "new" world report it to your local police -- NON-emergency.  Millions of eyes can see far more than any homeland security group.

 

Busy day...off to move my Mom into her new home...

 

Happy Friday Everyone :)

Got that right, my Bostonian sister. And it's happening right now.

Hopefully, they can take down the remaining one without any more casualties.

Boston Strong. No fear.

    • Are you sure he didn't eat pizza or a cookie?  If you weren't there.....  just a thought.  And, is this his usual reaction to gluten?  Do you really know that it is from gluten..... I mean...positive he got some gluten and this happens?  For example - I realized after I ate something that it wasn't what I thought it was.... so I know my reaction from gluten for certain.   The thing is, it just seems extreme for a teeny amount of gluten.  I just don't want you to miss something because you blame it on gluten.  It's a natural thing to blame everything on gluten. I feel this is his reaction to gluten, he needs to learn to recognize that it is irrational and learn to manage it.  If that means he stays in his room with soft music and a punching bag.... no matter what the cause of this episode - you definitely need to talk about it.  Maybe several times.  I know with my boys, you might have to explain what concerns you and maybe a brief why it concerns you ( tho this behavior probably needs no " why "it worries you).   They may need to think about it for a while or give you a partial answer today and discuss more in depth tomorrow.
    • Potato chips are usually gluten-free. If there is a concern, it is in an added flavor. I haven't seen a problem except for some BBQ flavors, and even then rarely. Wheat must be declared on the label in Canada and the USA. Rye and Barley do not need to be declared in the US, but in practice they are not hidden. That leaves dextrose which is a pure sugar and is gluten-free no matter where from what it was derived. Potato chips are very high in salt. The potatoes themselves provide a lot of sugar through carbohydrates. Just saying...
    • Hi, Welcome. Have you taken your son to the doctor yet? If you believe gluten is his problem, then I suggest you talk with your doctor about getting him tested. Could he be behaving badly due to reasons other than diet?
    • Hello, my 10 year old son, who is celiac, ate some potato chips (which likely had wheat or dextrose as ingredients as they were flavored chips) today at a end of school year gathering. He became very argumentative and misplaced several items in his room and blamed his siblings and us. As the evening wore on, my son became increasingly irrational, yelling and screaming, saying that he felt fine and that he couldn't understand why he was acting badly. My husband and I had no success reasoning with him over the course of hours and eventually he ended up in his room and fell asleep. Tonight was a "severe" outburst with my son almost picking an argument with everything and anyone. It was extremely difficult just to be in the house with him as he makes "grumping" noises and is incorrigible when he gets into gluten. I'm wondering if anyone has experience with this age kid and the behavioral manifestations of accidentally eating things that contain gluten. My husband and I felt completely wiped out after this episode. I fear that my son's behavior, if not contained, will lead him to bad choices/ irrational choices and I know I can't be with him every minute of the day. After this episode passes in a few days, he will likely be reasonable but how do we get him to understand how he is when glutened? Should we bring up this episode and talk about it?
    • Barilla makes great tasting gluten free pasta, Etalia makes a great artisan style bread, Canyon Bakehouse makes great bagels and sandwich bread so your good to go there. Canyon also makes focaccia but I've never tried it and it couldn't possibly compare to my sisters focaccia.
