If you didn't have to wear 347 lbs. of winter woolies to stay warm, you'd be uber-thin.

I think this is half the country right now.

On the bright side, even if it's only about 15 right now the sun is out. With the sun it has actually gotten warm enough to melt a lot of the snow and it feels positively wonderful outside. Yay! For the short time the sun was in our back yard our thermometer read about 34. Went straight back down as soon as the sun wasn't on it. :lol: I wouldn't want to be out there without the sun on me, but overall it's a perfectly pleasant day.

Exactly!  ;)   And then when my eyelashes freeze outside that adds another 4 lb per eye and then the tears coursing down my cheeks from the cold hurting so badly freeze into 6 lb chunks.  So yes, you are correct.  :lol:

QUIT IT!  You and your fishies and your beach and your heat and your palm trees and your warmth.  Who needs it when you could have this?

Welllll... Everyone is in the cold up there, so what are ya gonna compare against?  ;)

 

It warmed up some today after we got more snow. I helped ds shovel the neighbour's driveway since it was a balmy -6C. Poor kid was struggling to shovel the three car garage driveway - the snow piles and drifts are higher than his head now.  LOL :lol:  We had to give the kids the talk about tunneling through snow - don't do it unless there is someone there to pull you out if it caves in... You have some weird conversations when you just have boys.   :rolleyes:

It's just a truck, it's replaceable. I'll drive in a lot of things but ice is not one of them. That is under my list of never, ever. Which is why I love Utah so much, we don't get ice. Just snow.

 

You can keep your beach.  :P It has been in the 20s with sun, which is perfect winter weather. Everything is white and it truly feels Christmasy. I absolutely love it. It couldn't be a more ideal December here.

87? 51? 20s? Trying to make those of us with -35 jealous? I saw photos of people in LA all bundled up in puffy coats which made me laugh out loud. I would be walking around with a bikini. Well, with a sarong to cover up my wobbly bits but still. They have absolutely no clue what cold is!!!

wobbly bits (snort) :lol:

I've got those! I've got those!

Thank goodness it's not just me! I have about 208 different wobbly bits and a couple of tight bits.

    • I'm a scientist, and I did a little research into the study. Looks valid and it was published in a respected journal.  http://www.gastrojournal.org/article/S0016-5085(17)36352-7/pdf The science looks solid. As someone who didn't have a super clean cut diagnosis before going gluten free, I'd love to see something like this become available. Then again, there's no doubt in my mind that I can't have gluten, so any additional testing would be purely academic. But like I said, I'm a scientist. I can't help myself. 
    • Update: I have tried calling the company several times and have emailed twice. I have yet to talk to a person on the phone and no one has emailed me back.    I did a little research and they were are already involved with a class action lawsuit about being labeled as salt free and one of the first ingredients is sodium chloride.  I am done with this shampoo because this whole company seems a little shady now! 
    • I've actually been glutened by shampoo with hydrolyzed wheat protein, and I wasn't even the one using it. It was my husbands! I swear I don't go around eating my husbands hair.  I am pretty sensitive though, so it's entirely believable that the trace amounts in his hair were getting onto his and my hands and then making its way to my mouth, etc. etc.  It was a slow and steady low grade glutening that eventually built up to something that I was able to recognize as more definitively "a glutening". Once we ditched the shampoo and I recovered, I realized that I'd been feeling it for weeks.  It's going to depend on your level of sensitivity, but even if you don't feel it, it could still be doing damage. Also... I second that. Starch is a carbohydrate, protein is a protein (obviously), there is no simple process that would convert one into the other. Also, as gluten is a protein, converting starch to protein wouldn't be expected to do anything to gluten ANYWAY.  Speaking as a biologist here. I call poppycock. 
    • I just want you to remind you that I just had a repeat endoscopy last week after my diagnosis some five years ago.   Even though my antibodies are still elevated, my intestinal tract has healed.  But why have I been feeling sick?  I have chronic gastritis.  Who would have guessed?   I do not drink (rarely), take any meds other than my thyroid replacement, and do not have H. Pylori.  That leave autoimmune as the most likely culprit.  I also have some other minor issues that I think is related to Hashimoto’s.  So, I am in an autoimmune flare-up, but celiac disease is not the cause of current my woes. My endoscopy results have validated that I have been doing a good job about avoiding gluten.  I can relax a bit now!   I think because the treatment for celiac disease is a burden placed on us, it can become overwhelming.  Sure, we all eventually master the diet and most of us go on to lead plain old normal lives, but if something is off, celiac disease is the first thing that many of us blame.  Actually, we blame ourselves, to be honest.  We have to remember that we are often dealing with other health issues too.   As far as hair, I buy gluten free shampoo.  It is from Costco and it says it right on the label.  Nice and inexpensive.   Do I really need it to be gluten free?  No.  I think the last time I swallowed shampoo, my mother was most likely bathing me and I did not heed her warning to keep my mouth shut (baby shampoo may not sting your eyes but it tastes awful!).   Like you, sometimes I think it helps to have one less thing to think about and that can be priceless.           
    • https://www.twinings.co.uk/hot-chocolate-coffee-other-drinks/hot-chocolate-and-malt-drinks/twinings-swiss-chocolate-drink Have discovered this drink - it's great, labelled gluten free and is also fortified.   I can't drink too much milk as I get bloated, but find it tastes really nice even made mostly with hot water and just a small amount of milk.  Thank you Twinings.
