Hey Addy, I know there are some nasty fires in your area. If you get a chance, let us know you're OK. I hope you haven't been evacuated, and I hope the smoke is not so thick you can't breathe. (((((HUGS)))))

All fine here. One of the worst is up near Park City, which I'm nowhere near. That is all touristy and such, I've actually never even been there. There is another relatively bad one that is all the way out near Tooele, so the middle of nowhere, but we can see the smoke all the way down here near Orem. It was pretty thick and brown yesterday when we headed up towards American Fork for an errand. There is a third that is the closest down in Spanish Fork canyon but we can't see the smoke from it here and that is still relatively far out. None are close enough that they could be a threat to us here.

 

I am watching closely though for new fires and such. Keeping enough gas in my Jeep for an emergency evacuation without a pit stop. Checked our go bags, made sure we have bottled water in our cars, all that. I'm not too worried unless something starts near Provo canyon or something, we're close enough to the mouth of that for it to get scary and fast. There are plenty of recommendations for people close to fires to stay indoors if they aren't evacuated. The air gets pretty bad pretty fast.

 

My husband works close to where a fire was last year up in Saratoga Springs. I had to run something up to him last week on a rather windy day. It is terrible up there, the dust was blowing off the hills and it was so bad it looked like a wall of dirt. I got the hell out of there as fast as I could, it kept getting worse and I wasn't sure if I'd be able to see to drive soon.

Glad to hear it! This morning as I woke up it was the first thing I heard on the radio and I thought of you right away.

 

It has RAINED here almost every night this summer! Haven't had to worry about fires at all. What a relief! There has even been some minor flooding, like the night last week when we got six inches in five hours. No one is complaining though. :)

That's a lot of rain! I wish we could get some rain that doesn't come with lightning. If you guys get sick of it, send it this way. I swear, most of the people here don't even know what rain is. Sometimes they call things I wouldn't even deem worthy of the word "sprinkle" rain. :rolleyes:

    • Ditto. However, this is what I can never understand about gluten free food.  (see the bold bits which I've taken from the article) "We wanted to determine if gluten consumption will affect health in people with no apparent medical reasons to avoid gluten. Gluten-free foods often have less dietary fiber and other micronutrients, making them less nutritious and they also tend to cost more,” I wonder why  what so much of what I eat  that's gluten free doesn't have added vitamins - we of all people need fortification in our cereals and bread, surely?       
    • Yeah we learned that the hard way.  I am inclined to think (as I did initially) that it was JUST the Cheerios but as time is passing and she is not bouncing back I am worried that we need to strip away dairy again for a while.
    • Oh I have no issue with being dairy free personally but tell that to a 13 year old.  We both went gluten-free at the same time and it has been mindlessly easy for me.  But I am easy about food and no real food issues.  I am far more adaptable.  She comes to the table with her own unique set of issues that complicate just easily transitioning to dairy free versions of much loved favorites.  To most they are jst that "substitutes" to her they are completely different foods and ones that she has no interest in eating.  They don't satisfy her need for XYZ.  It is like craving an apple and someone handing you a fish.  For her anyway! LOL!
    • I believe the talk around this forum is that cheerios are not gluten free enough for people with celiac at this time. I don't know if anything has changed on that and when their lawyer calls me I'll quickly delete this. haha  
    • Could be we generally say get off of dairy for a few months when going gluten free. The part of the intestines that produce the enzymes, and help break down dairy are associated with the tips of the villi, which are the most damaged if not gone in celiacs. THIS is why most of us end up with a lactose intolerance early on. And most can introduce it later after healing. As to her symptoms with it there was a bunch of research about dairy permeated the gut and causing neurological issues in a autism study I was looking at years ago. And there have been other studies about damaged intestines and how the hormones in milk can easier effect ones body.   Personally I also have a huge grudge against dairy on a personal level as it is not natural to suck on a cows tits and drink the stuff, nor your dogs, nor a rabbits......I mean come on even Human Breast milk you would find odd to drink as an adult right? Back in the past dairy was a great way to get calories and fats when there was famine, etc around I mean it is meant to make a calf grow into a 500+lb cow. But on a genetic and hormonal level it is not really for human consumption and now days the whole corporate BS propaganda push and dairy farms shove that oh its healthy stuff down your throat. There are plenty of dairy free options for everything feel free to message me if you need help finding anything I have been dairy free for over a decade.
