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: )

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 you Mid western folks better keep your eyes peeled to the sky cause looks like those tornados are all that's missing for sure.

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...

    • Learn more about testing for celiac disease here: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You do have to be on a gluten diet for ANY of the celiac tests (blood and biopsy) to work.  While the endoscopy (with biopsies) can reveal villi damage, many other things besides celiac disease can cause villi damage too: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-else-can-cause-damage-to-the-small-intestine-other-than-celiac-disease/ So, both the blood test and endoscopy are usually ordered.  There are some exceptions, but those are not common.  
    • Exactly what are your allergy symptoms?  Were they IgG or IgE?  Allergy testing as a whole is not super accurate -- especially the IgG.  Were you on any H1 or H2 antihistamines for the last five days  when you were tested?   As far as celiac testing, four days without consuming gluten probably would not impact testing.  
    • I've been seeing my dr for a few weeks now about my stomach issues. We've ruled out the gallbladder and h-pylori and today I had the celiac blood tests done. From the reading I've done the past two days, it seems to me that it's highly likely that I have it. I've had digestive issues for years, but they've gotten progressively worse over the past 6 months or so. Pain and nausea when eating, bloat, eternal constipation, dh rash, at it's worse, tight cramp-like pain in a fist under my sternum, radiating through my back and around my right side keeping me up at night. Also heartburn/reflux and trouble swallowing, etc. 

      Anyway, about 2 months ago, I needed a change. I didn't go to the dr immediately because it seemed pointless. (I've mentioned stomach ache when eating to drs before and been blown off.) So, I started the Whole30 elimination diet (takes out soy, grains, dairy, peanuts, and leaves you basically eating meat & veggies). Figured it would show me what I needed to take out of my diet and hopefully feel better. It worked- I felt great! And it seems that grains and gluten are my biggest offenders. But, now I've been off gluten prior to celiac testing. It's been 7 weeks. After 4 weeks I tested steal cut oats, that I later found out were probably glutened. And then nothing until yesterday. Yesterday I had 2 pieces of bread and a muffin and today I had two pieces of bread and then the blood test. Is this going to be enough to show up on the tests? My dr said that it would probably show up, since I had some yesterday and today and was currently having symptoms. But, google seems to say that I should be glutened for 2 wks straight before testing. Has anyone tested positive after just a little gluten? If it's negative should I insist on doing it again after weeks back on gluten? I feel awful, but do want clear answers. Obviously, gluten's not going to be a part of my life any more either way. 
    • So just to clarify  had not consumed any gluten for about 4 days before testing. I was assured by my allergist that it wouldn't affect the test. But what was alarming was that she retested my food allergies (my most recent reaction was two weeks ago) and every food allergy I have came back negative. I don't understand how that is possible. These food allergies developed when I was 20 and I am almost 24 now.
    • Thanks! You too! I have learned from this experience to take charge of my own health. It's nice at least that we can try the gluten-free treatment without a firm diagnosis or a doctor confirming the disease. I've also felt some of the gluten withdrawal symptoms, and my stomach pain ebbs and flows, but I'm determined to stick with the gluten-free diet to see what a difference it makes. Gemini, thank you! This was really validating and useful for me to hear. I've felt so confused through this process and just want some answers. If the biopsy results do come back negative, I'm going to follow your advice and do the gluten-free diet with repeat blood testing after a while. If they come back positive, well, then I'll have my answer. I'm supposed to get them back next week.
