My Hub loves Dan Brown but I'm not so into it. I have enjoyed a coup,e of his books. Not sure if he has read that one yet.

I don't know. I am an avid reader. I read about a book every five days. I read all the previous Dan Brown books and like them. But Inferno is hard for me to get in to. I don't know why. It just doesn't have that I can't put it down allure that his other books do.  I actually started it a few weeks ago and read about 50 pages and haven't been back to it. That is very unusual for me. I usually devour books.

 

Does it just take some time to pick up???

I'm a slow reader, but as the Divinci Code, it only took me a  weekend.  But in my mind, I'm trying to reconnect the pieces.  Not to say that I did not like the book.   I LOVED the book.  I would just  like to discuss certain issues within the book.

 

I can't convince anyone to read the book, but it is a fast paced and not without intriqued book . As well as moral-legal-ethical-environmental issue to ponder, kinda book.

 

I loved it, but I would like to discuss it with another reader.

I'd like to read that. I'll put a hold on it at the library once their IT service is up and running - the central branch is under water from the flood still so services are pretty limited.

Are you in Calgary? If so, I hope your family is holding up well and you suffered little damage. It's just awful what Calgarians and those in High River and other Alberta areas have gone through.  Terrible, just terrible.

Nicole, can I send you a copy, or my copy?  I apologize...Canadian news does not always filter down to us, or perhaps I should pay more attention.

Yes, i'm in Calgary but i'm up on a hill in an unaffected area (just damp basements from rain).  We have friends and family who didn't fair as well, but the clean-up is well under way.

 

I feel bad for those in High River too. For some dumb reason, the town and military wouldn't let people back in to pump out thier houses because there was no gas or electricity yet (who cares-it's summer) so those houses have been under water for a week... they won't be salvageable. 

And the worst part is that insurance doesn't cover flooding up here. I'm not sure if that's a Canadian thing or just in Alberta.  :(

 

Lisa- LOL Oh no, don't send me your book! I'll get a copy of it eventually; it will just be a few more weeks.  It's no rush.  Thanks so much for offereing though - you're very sweet!  :)

 

I just hope their interlibrary loan system is up and running by the fall; we homeschool, and are at the library for resources a couple of times a week for books and videos.

    • Hi, I am a 24 year old male , with no family history of Celiac.  I have low testosterone.  they did a Biopsy today and during the scope the Doctor said I have Gastritis in upper stomach.  My lab are as follows:   Immunoglobulin A, Qn, Serum 132 90-386 (mg/dL) F Deamidated Gliadin Abs, IgA 3 0-19 (units) - Negative 0 - 19 - Weak Positive 20 - 30 - Moderate to Strong Positive >30 F Deamidated Gliadin Abs, IgG 2 0-19 (units) - Negative 0 - 19 - Weak Positive 20 - 30 - Moderate to Strong Positive >30 F t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgG 21  H 0-5 (U/mL) - Negative 0 - 5 - Weak Positive 6 - 9 - Positive >9 F Endomysial Antibody IgA Negative Negative  F t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA <2 0-3 (U/mL) - Negative 0 - 3 - Weak Positive 4 - 10 - Positive >10   I am wondering the probability that I have celiac?
    • Get pictures if you can and contact GFWD if true and perhaps we can inform others better about this issue.
    • First this is a old post please check date, second, are you celiac/been tested? You should probably see about a gluten challenge and testing if you have not. Or are you confirmed to have a gluten/wheat allergy? What kind of testing was done to determine this? Or is it a NCGS gluten issue? Sorry for the questions but different people have different issues and it is a bit hard to address them without more information. Perhaps start a new thread and feel free to introduce yourself. We always welcome new members and are glad to help out. You mention allergy but also mention swelling stomach/gut which is is sometime a celiac reaction generally.  
    • My husband & I used to be beekeepers. It would be almost impossible for wheat protein to get into honey. The honey is inside the hive; it's not like it's laying out in the open in a plate or a bowl. Here's a hive.: https://www.mannlakeltd.com/10-frame-traditional-growing-apiary-kit-wood-frames-painted?gclid=CjwKCAiA4vbSBRBNEiwAMorER1htsezzCA5djegusWEGx_DzRHG4xePYQIxxd1paGZy4ibxMR_dSFxoCFUoQAvD_BwE The bees have a narrow opening at the bottom of the hive where they enter & exit & when they enter then they climb upward inside the hive. The bottom section is the brood chamber where the queen lays eggs & eventually become bees. At the top of that section is something called a queen excluder which is generally a metal screen type thing with holes in it. The queen is larger than the workers so the holes are smaller than the queen in order to keep her in the brood chamber. This is so she doesn't go laying eggs all over the hive. The workers fit through the excluder allowing them to go to the supers (boxes) above where the nectar is deposited in honeycomb & turned into honey & when a cell is full, they cap it off. You've seen honeycomb before. So when harvest time comes, the beekeeper takes the full (of honey) supers off the brood chamber & replaces them with empty (of honey) supers so the bees can start filling those up. The full supers get taken to what we call the honey house which is where extraction takes place. Here's a YouTube video of honey extraction. As you can see, this is not anywhere that other food is being made or prepared. Other food does not get done in honey production. It's a class all it's own. There's not going to be any wheat barley or rye there.   
    • I noticed my  gluten sensitivity problem started 2 yeats ago after I had my gallbladder removed.  I had to figure it out on my own what my problem was .my sister -who is a nurse practitioner -suggested to me that maybe I am allergic to gluten? I asked her what is gluten ?that was two years ago I have noticed a definite correlation between all my gastrointestinal problems starting after my gallbladder was removed.  as soon as I accidentally ingest gluten my stomach swells up so tight it feels like it will burst have a terrible pain right at the site of where my gall bladder was removed.  I'm so thankful for the site I've learned so much from all of you it is a hard road to travel to try to find things and you can eat that will not make you sick keep posting. I think it gives all of us encouragement! thank you.
