Just noticing - - In my av you canna see the large, blacked-in hole in my smile that I painted over my teeth. Will's is quite visible.....I must have had it on the side turned slightly away. It was HUGE, and SOOOOOO trailer-parky.

I don't look nearly as phunny there as I was, truly.

Holy Smores!!!! WIH is everybody!!????!!

Took down another tree yesterday. We thought we would be able to save this tree but after the mass deforestation project of a month or so ago, we found out just how bad it really looked. Have gone out and priced some new trees . . . some of which will already be a decent size and can I just say . . . YIKES!!!

Patti . . . have you gone and checked out the hole in the ground progress on your house?

I meant to tell you that I'm glad the JoDog's bloods tests were negative. Hopefully, that's the end of it!

Good morning everyone :)

A cold, rainy A.M. here in Clinton Township. It's been nice not to have to run the air conditioning.

Hey Emily and Peter--

Scott may have to go to Ontario next month on business and I was thinking I might go with him. Any advice on places to stay, things to do? He would have to validate new vehicles at the Brampton plant--how for is that from either of you?

That's what got me in to trouble in the first place :ph34r:

Callbacks were fun. Still waiting to hear if I'm in. Sorta have mixed feelings. Being there reminded me of just how much time is involved in doing a show. But it's also fun. :blink:

I am a lot closer to Brampton than Emily, but I'm not really familiar with the area. It is on the NW corner of the city of Toronto, but I haven't been there is ages. It is close enough that you could look at Toronto for accommodations and activities.

Rayechull! Youse is comin' up north? Damn, Brampton is pretty far from here, but only about a half-hour drive from downtown Toronto. There is LOTS to do and see in T.O. - - it is a phab city! You should definitely accompany Scott. You could meet POeter at the terrific restaurant that serves delicious gluten-free pizza.

I WANNA COME!! :angry:

:rolleyes:

They posted the travel schedule at his work yesterday but haven't assigned the trips, which are to be divided amongst Scott and his co-workers. The validation trips this summer are to Ontario, Toledo, Windsor, and I think Austria and/or Italy. I said I'm up for Ontario and Italy as a tag-along.

I'd love to meet up with you, Peter. We could have lunch while Scott's at work, or all meet for dinner one evening. Emily, maybe we could all drive to a half-way meeting point? I'd absolutely HATE to get so close and not meet you

:(

Anyway, I'll let you know for sure as soon we know, but it looks like it will be next month (in 3-4 weeks maybe).

Oh, how exciting! A possible meeting of sillies international :P

So far all we know is that there is a prelim. date of about August 3-5 for the trip, BUT, noone has been asssigned to it yet. Scott can request it as his trip, but the actual date is based on first run of production on vehicles out of the plant in Brampton--so the date depends entirely upon that. We will know more in a couple of weeks.

Peter and Em, what are your plans in that time frame?

Any one else game (hint-hint)? We'll drive ;)

So halfway between Toronto and Seattle appears to be Pierre, S Dakota. I really like you Mims, but maybe not enough to drive through Montana and South Dakota during the hottest part of the year...

Morning Sillies-

The start of a long weekend!

Still cool for summer- I dont think us Northern SIllies are really getting a fair summer season- we spend the rest of the 9 months shivering....

John and I are hoping to head to the beach later today until tomorrow. We are not staying at the beach- we are thinking of Atlantic City.

Have a great holiday weekend!!!!

    • George, i am sorry that you are not feeling well!  ☹️  I am not a doctor, but just trying out drugs to stop your symptoms just seems like a band aid  approach.  It sounds like he suspects IBS which is really, in my opinion, "I be stumped".  Has inflammatory bowel disorder (IBD) (more lovely autoimmune disorders) been ruled out?  This includes both Crohn's and Colitis.  My niece was diagnosed with Crohn's finally with a pill camera after all other tests were given.  The damage was not within reach of any scope.  I am just throwing out suggestions.  Hopefully, you and your doctor will figure it out soon!  
    • Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease that happens to have a known trigger -- gluten.  Flare-ups develop  (antibodies) causing damage. Not just in the small intestine, but systemically.  One gluten exposure can cause antibodies to increase for days or months!   Antibodies are being measured during the celiac blood tests.   If there is no gluten exposure, there will be no antibodies.  These antibodies can come down in some people in as little as two weeks.  Recommendations require gluten 2 to 4 weeks daily for the biopsies taken via endoscopy in order to be sure to catch damage, but 8 to 12 weeks for the blood tests.   The endoscopy is considered the "gold standard" in helping to diagnose celiac disease, but there are other things that can damage the small intestine.  So, the blood test helps solidify the diagnosis.   So, if you want a good result on your endoscopy, you need to be eating gluten daily for two week prior at a minimum.  I know it is tough and you are feeling sick.  Wish there was a better way to catch active celiac disease.    
    • Hi everyone, Just an update to my situation.  I had thought that I might be getting better since I started adding gluten-free grain back into my diet but I was wrong.  It seems that the Methscopalamine Bromide just delayed the effects, didn't stop them.  I had to stop taking it because one of the side effects is to stop sweating, which I did.  There were times when I felt hot and almost couldn't catch my breath.  Anyway, my doc put me on Viberzi instead.  I took 3 doses, 1 Tuesday evening and then 1 Wednesday morning and then again Wednesday evening.  Each time I took 1, it seemed that about half an hour later I would develop severe abdominal cramping, pain in my neck, shoulders and upper back and a feeling like my insides were on fire.  My face felt like it was hot and tingling.  It wasn't warm to the touch but felt like it to me.  Worse of all is it didn't work anyway, I still had diarrhea.  I stopped taking Viberzi after reading the precautions pamphlet which said, "stop taking Viberzi and tell your doctor if you have abdominal cramping, pain which radiates to your shoulders or upper back."  Go figure.  Anyway, today is 3 weeks straight of diarrhea and still no diagnosis and not sure what he's going to want to do next. George 
    • I'm still really new to all this but is it common to have trouble with sleep? I swear since my symptoms got really bad a few months ago I can't get 1 good nights sleep, like a 5 hour stretch is doing real good. Wake up at 3am wide awake almost every night. Told my doctor and they've recommended melatonin, that doesn't work. Tried chamomile and lavender tea, no help. Tried zzquil, that will knock me out but maybe for like an extra hour then I'm really drowsy the next morning from it. I don't know what to do.
