So many people are thinking that the photo in Lynne's avatar is of Lynne. It is a little of her. She is the one on the left. She is a MUCH younger woman then me (I am in the center of the photo). She is also a very pretty woman with a bright, happy and wonderful smile. On the right is broncobux (Chris) who is certainly better looking then this photo shows. We were all having fun in Las Vegas (where Chris lives).

I THINK EVERYONE SHOULD LET LYNNE KNOW THAT WE WOULD LIKE HER AVATAR TO BE A PHOTO OF HER. Just so everyone will see what this special young woman looks like. You should all PM her and let her know.

It would be terrific if you took a photo of her tomorrow. I really don't know how good she is on doing avatar's. I personally can't do mine. Maybe she could change her password temporarily and you could change her avatar with the new photo. Then she could change her password back. That is what I did for Floridian to put the ostrich up for my avatar. Hope you two have a great visit.

Ya know, I was wondering who those other gorgeous, happy people were. I knew it was from your recent trip, but never asked.

Not that anyone else here (dozens?) need to put up a picture.

No presha.

Thanks Jen for taking pics of Lynne. When I talked to her last night, she told me about the fabulous lunch you had and that your Mother is so nice. She had a great visit. She said she would put up one of the pics that your Mother took. I really envy the members that live so close to each other.

Yeah, it is a real blessing. We have several local groups in Indy, but I've also been able to get together with 3 people from the forum--always fun :)

Beverly -- that is NOT FAIR!!!!! You guys . . . . Jen will e-mail me the pictures, I WILL post one of them as my avatar. I am ALSO trying to get pics from Ashley's wedding from the friend of hers . . . . that way, you can actually see me with real make-up, my hair done (although it was VERY foo-foo -- and PUFFY) and dressed nicely!

Don't know what the interest is . . . I'm not anything spectacular. Kind of plain, overweight and not happy about it, but I am growing long luxurious blond hair (a goal since I was a kid). When I was little, I HAD blonde hair . . . . then it got darker and darker and darker. Then, what do you know? It got little white strands in it . . . and began to get lighter! So, I figured if it was going to get LIGHTER -- then it might as well be BLONDE lighter vs. SILVER lighter! Then, I really did myself in . . . I started growing it out so that I could wear it up for Ashley's wedding. Needless to say, Dave likes the long luxurious blonde hair!! (Although, he did think it was a little hot when I was a red-head!)

Talk to you guys soon, and maybe you'll SEE me (other than Jen & Armetta -- oh yeah, and Beverly with the picture).

You need to know . . . I tried to put my baby picture as my avatar, but it wouldn't re-size correctly. You didn't state AT WHAT AGE you wanted to see me!

Yea, it's evident from the other Vegas pics, you just can't see it in this one since you can't see her.

Yes she is beautiful -inside and outside. She is also in her very early 40's and looks like she is late 20's - how wonderful that is. Her skin is beautiful and youthful looking. Heck I could go on, but you get the idea and hopefully we all get a picture.

    • Hi , no I have not, my dr said there was no point to test because we already know I have celiac. Is this something I should be doing ?
    • No I think for a positive test you need to be eating gluten for a certain period of time otherwise the test can produce erronous results.   1 If you have been on a gluten free diet the test can produce a false negative 2 After a period of time of being gluten free your gut can heal itself (in many cases...although this might take time) and so any test taken (blood test or biopsy) will potentially produce a false negative. 3 It is possibe to test whether or not you have the genes for celiac. If you have a family history, your symptoms are alleviated by removing gluten and you have the right genes for celiac, to my mind its very likely even if you dont test postive officially (science can get it wrong sometimes for various reasons).
    • Hi All, I just got back from my first visit to Montreal in a couple years, and had to report back. STUFF IS HAPPENING THERE!

      One word: Croissant.
      CROISSAAAAANT!  Yes, the flaky exterior fluffy interior pull it apart in sheets melt in your mouth OMG I didn't think I'd ever eat anything like this again how is this even possible kind of croissant. I think I might have had a religious experience while eating it. In any case, if you happen to be in La Belle Province, in one of my favourite cities as it is, run, don't walk (or better yet, hop on the metro to Jean Talon) to La Boulangerie Marquise Sans Gluten. The most beautiful gluten-free bakery I have even been in. Aside from the aforementioned croissant, they have beautiful cakes and pastries, pizza, quiche, tarts, fresh bread, bagels, etc etc... Only downside is that their products do contain soy (I cheated. It was worth it) and some contain dairy (again, worth it), so if you have serious problems with that, please stay away (cause if you step in there you WILL be tempted. For reals).

      Aside from that, other places to go:
      - Creperie du Marche - at Jean Talon market. They only do buckwheat crepes, and they are pretty good.
      - Arepera du Plateau - not only the best arepas (cornbread sandwiches) I've ever had, but known as one of the best spots in the city. Get there early.
      - Mais - my favourite spot for tacos. Most everything on the menu is usually gluten-free, but be sure to ask.
      - Cookie Stephanie - another nice bakery in Old Montreal
      - Luv - lovely new mostly gluten-free vegetarian spot.
      (not listed as gluten-free but still amazing and very accomodating):
      - Le Vin Papillon - hands down one of the most amazing meals ever. They asked me what my restructions were before I even said, and put together 3 amazing plates. Of course, the wine is amazing too.
      - Lawrence or Larry's - have eaten at both and both very accomodating and lovely.
      Generally, I find  knowledge of gluten-free (sans gluten) at most reputable Montreal restaurants is pretty high, so don't restrict yourself. Just call and ask beforehand.

      And of course, don't forget to drink some GLUTENBERG! 100% gluten-free and pretty dang good beer. Pick from their blonde, IPA, red ale, very nice belgian white, and if you can find them, their special releases like Myrcene de Glace. (I may  have returned with a suitcase full of beers)

      Closed since I was last there (RIP)
      - Mi & Stu - I used to get bagels at this bakery up Rue Park, but they have since closed their Montreal location and moved to a commercial space. Bummer.

      Have you been to or live in Montreal? Leave your suggestions here!
    • The original poster hasn't been on for many months.
    • It was five years ago when I launched the concept of "gluten is bad for us all!"
      Yes, you read that right - bad for you, bad for me, and bad for everyone else! This implies that the whole world should avoid gluten. This is a bold and an unrealistic statement to make. However, I thought that there was enough evidence about the harm of gluten for us to demand massive changes to everyone's diet, our farming practices and food manufacturing industry. Eventually, this could substantially improve the health of our Nations. However the practicalities of such a change would be very difficult overcome. Especially with the economic forces of Big-Pharma, Big-Agriculture and Big-Government. View the full article
