I is still in Nevada, Em. Still don't know much except apparently no casualties or major injuries, lots of cracked bridges and motorway onramps, broken water and sewer lines, all hospitals operational, still no power so no word from my housesitter. Although I did find this in the newspaper about our 'local':

"Historic Godley House has suffered very serious damage. Owner Richard Hawes said he thought he was going to die as he was on the second floor of the 130-year-old homestead and when it "wobbled like a jelly''. The building now has cracks from the foundation upwards with many windows out and a large hole in a wall."

Of course it would have no earthquake proofing, but is about a mile from us at most, so that means it was definitely "felt" in Diamond Harbour :blink:

I just read that Diamond Harbour is cut off by a 50 metre slip on the road; fortunately, we have a ferry service across to Lyttelton :D

Thanks. Looks like I might have some shopping to do when I get home: :P (from the Christchurch Press)

"Press arts editor Christopher Moore said he was thrown out of bed by the shake. Moore, who lives in Diamond Harbour, said every piece of crockery was broken and book thrown to the floor. A heavy, carved Victorian wall clock, had swung about a foot in each direction and a heavy, enamel Kent fire was ejected half way across the bedroom floor. Moore said it felt "much worse'' than the Inangahua earthquake of 1968 - also a magnitude 7.1. " It was savage, terrifying, horrible."

Of course, a lot of the homes in Diamond Harbour were formerly what are known as baches or cribs (poorly constructed holiday shacks which have been modernized and added on to. I don't know where Christopher lives :huh:

(It would take a bit to move our Tulikivi stove, though - that sucker weighs about two tonnes :rolleyes: )

I leave to hang banners at the footbal stadium, tailgate and watch J's high school game and look what happens! A big honking earthquake at Shroomie's other house! I hope the house sitter is OK cause that's gonna be one angry Kitty.

Natural disasters are befalling Psillys. Hurricanes, wild fires & earthquakes. Us Midwest Psillys better keep a sharp eye out for tornados ( that is one of the main ones we are missing). :huh:

Well, I did notice the lateness(earliness) of the hour . . . you were up 4:45 my time. I shoulda got outta bed and chatted with you, Judee as I was awake at that time . . . just a tossin' anda turnin' . . . and tossin' . . . and turnin'

Headed out to go birding this morning!!! Trying to get Skeeter to join me on one of these treks but she keeps declining. She'd be really good at it. She's forced to listen along in the car when I'm playing my "Birding by Ear" c.d.'s (helps with the identification, you know). I would hazard that she's better at it than I am. Chidlins don't have all the tatt cluttering up their minds like mental grocery lists, appts, stuff I need to gossip about, and errands to run.

:huh:

:blink:

Now DIS is HOT. That is sub-Saharan, er sumfin'. . . .. ...... .watch it out there, Joooodie!

She's forced to listen along in the car when I'm playing my "Birding by Ear" c.d.'s (helps with the identification, you know).

This sounds like quite a collection of C/Ds, Jyaghnutt. .. . . . .... . it would be excellent to put one of them on our living room player when DD has five of her girlfriends over, lolling about on various pieces of furniture. "Hey, c'mon, guys - - let's try to dance to this!"

Their faces:

:huh: :huh: <_<:mellow::unsure::o

The last face is Sophie's, her classic look of brazen, embarrassed horror. . . . . .. ...

My dad was a consummate mimic of human and animal voices. He perfected the calls and whistles of several birds, and created one that sounded like it may have come from a strange, extinct parrot or hawk. Through the years he slowly drove our neighboUrs behind us out of their minds, as he would stand at the back fence and make this quiet, trilling whistle. We'd hear old Mr. Lyndski scrambling out his back door.... ."Margaret! There it is! Get the tape recorder! We need to call the news channel, send somebody out there!"

Dad would wait a day or two, then hide out there and whistle again, somehow throwing his voice up to the huge elm that bordered our properties. I would see from my upstairs bedroom window a flurry of activity as Mrs. Lyndski rushed about for the big binoculors, Mr. Lyndski throwing back curtains, yelling excitedly. . .. ... . ....

I have often wondered if my dad's bizarre, yet somehow very credible whistle made it onto any birding soundtracks. Jyaghnutt, if there is a crazy, prehistoric call on that C/D that is stumping you birding identifiers, we may know from where it came... . ... ..particularly if there is follow-up commentary from a Mr. Lyndski...

    • Where are you? Nuts are gluten free by nature, some companies might use contaminated seasonings, or make them in a facility that processes trail mix or something with gluten in it. This is where your concern lies, A nut only company should be safe, unseasoned nuts are your best bet, and yest if you can get them in the shell then wash them off really well before shelling and eating them your pretty darn safe with them. Raw walnuts in shell are safe, they normally do not add anything them to them, in case they might have gotten dusted with something just rinse them off before shelling them, I really love taking the walnuts afterward and putting them in a pan on low heat til they start to brown and lightly roast, they are great this way. I also used to take raw walnuts and candy them. Might post that recipe since I can no longer eat them and do not sell them anymore. I have a bit of a issue getting nuts myself by I am allergic to peanuts (not really a nut but a legume). SO for me it is really tricky finding peanut and gluten free nuts lol. I found 3 companies I order from, 1 for organic almonds, 1 for my own almonds, and one that sales walnuts and pistachios only. Most people here just order from Nuts.com but they might not ship to you at a good price. Tried amazon?
    • There aren't any gluten free nut brand in my country. Are nuts with shells like peanuts,walnuts sold in stores without package gluten free? Do they add anything else to them? 
    • Supplementation with Natural Vitality Stress & Energy, will help a lot it is a sublingual B-vitamin pretty much. I use it with the Neurological support from the same company and Natural Vitality Calm Magnesium. These along with a diet in foods that help with mood like snacking on cocoa nibs, hemp seeds, etc. Takes the edge off of everything and I do not worry but just roll with life. Here are some helpful links https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/ A set of microwave cookware from nordicware will make the transition and cooking some foods super simple and cheap, steam trays, rice cooker, grill plates, omelette makes etc, also great for trips. Butcher paper/Freezer paper can make a nice safe cook and eating surface and makes clean up a breeze. Crockpot meals with a crockpot liner makes really easy soups, risotto, stews, pot roast, etc and the liner can make cleanup super simple just pull it out and toss it.    Eggs dishes like omelettes using the microwave cooker, scrambled egg dishes, are super simple and one of my go to meals I also so simple stir fry meals a lot. Saute in order of harder and seasoning veggies and meats first and finish off with a sauce/deglazing mix 10-20min meal. I have posted recipes for meals in the recipes sections. MY flat bread recipe seems to bit hit recently being cheap easy and very versatile in how you can make it.
    • Hey everyone... newbie here. I have a few questions but first my history: Dx with Hashimoto's in 2003. Had SEVERE adverse reaction to T4 no idea why but then switched to T3. But T4 opened a can of worms. Immediately after starting T4 had digestive issues. Aften a few years tried gluten free. No help but stayed on gluten-free diet. 2013 gave in to blt cravings and had wheat sandwiches everyday for a week. Woke up one morning with muscles so swollen or inflammed couldn't  get out of bed. No more gluten. Also had blood in stool. 2014 finally dx with pancreas insuffiency. Digestion improved and blood stopped but at same time also dx with colitis (i strongly doubt this dx and don't  take colitis drugs). A year later added cheese back into my diet. Bleeding came back. No more dairy now, blood gone. Now i might have gastritis and sibo. Endoscopy planned for October. 23andMe testing also shows a single mutation for celiac. If i just stay Gluten-free Casein-free does it really matter is i get a dx for celiac? Celiac disease and gluten intolerance... same thing? Is blood in stool common with celiac disease? Is colitis often a wrong dx for celiac disease. Can a biopsy dx celiac when already Gluten-free Casein-free?  Which end of the small intestines used for biopsy? Meaning, when doc looks at my stomach can he do small intestine biopsy or do i need a colonoscopy instead?
    • My 7-year-old has been complaining of constant itchiness and a skin crawling sensation for the past five months, but has no external rash or symptoms.   It seems to get worse at night, although that may be because it's more difficult to distract herself at bedtime.   We've tried switching shampoos and detergents, tepid baking soda baths followed by gluten-free lotion, re-reading the labels on anything that comes in contact with her skin, having her re-tested for more food sensitivities, and even checking the house for mold and cleaning all the air ducts.   Nothing has helped. Her pediatrician referred us to an allergist who had us try several different histamine blockers, but not even Benadryl brings relief, so it doesn't appear to be a histamine issue.  Blood tests show that her kidneys, liver and thyroid are all functioning normally.   Right now I'm trying having her go nitrate-free since that isn't included in food sensitivity tests, but so far no improvement.   Now they want to refer her to a dermatologist, but the appointment is a month away and she is MISERABLE.  I have no idea how to help her.
