Hey TomTom! Keep brushing away that brain fog -- eventually it will stay gone. :)

Next upcoming saga: The house sitter stole some of the Pirate's mail and took my truck joyriding. I tried to give him an out and let him blame it on a friend but he kept insisting he knew nothing about a missing package....until the officer showed up at his job and informed him that he'd left the packaging at my house...

He, and one or more of his parents are coming over tonight to return the bulbs and learn that "joyriding" in WA state is a felony. Should be an interesting evening.

light bulbs. led bulbs from China. Yes, dim bulb sums it up. His dad is disgusted and can't even talk to him. Not looking forward to lunch with his mom on Friday. She's one of my good friends, and I see this entirely as the kid's (24, not really a kid) problem. But I imagine that a parent would feel a lot of negative things in this situation.

I would be mortified if my kid did that at 16 or 36. I guess I would feel like I didn't teach him like I should.

J doesn't really have a summer job, so if you want to sail the 7 seas all summer.....he always liked the chickens at the petting zoo & The neighborhood Evil Kitty always liked him better than his own family. He could build an elevator for the chickies or build a robot to feed the kitties in his spare time. Maybe re- paint your truck?

Good to know. Maybe he could build a self closing door to the coop that's keyed to the amount of sunlight.

Either that or he could train Seuss, the rooster, to tap a button and shut the door when all the girls are inside.

Well.

Jess's saga ends with sunshine, chatting up the locals, a nice hot bath, and a 24 year old delinquent. Boy, unemployment doesn't sound too bad! (minus the delinquent)

Good to have Thoughmus,BunBun, and Rayshell back in the fold ^_^ Now all we need is Soozle. I hear she's been peeking in unnoticed. :rolleyes:

Bullet in yer bedroom?!?! MOOOOOVE!!

Wells, veg has known the caveman her entire life. Turns out, after 34 years they have a few things in common-other than their diets.... He has helped her understand that it's ok, and good, to be happy in her life. That she IS a good mom and a good person. And that she's not a dead fish..... That's as far as I'm going on that one... Lmao!! She goes fishing, 4wheeling in the woods, sleeps on a float house with NO indoor plumbing, sleeps in a cabin in the woods with no running water, propane lights, and NOOOOO INDOOR PLUMBING!! She snowboards and snowmobiles, she goes on freakin ROAD TRIPS-she thought she HATED road trips!!! She also loves his family (and grew up with them too. Caveman Sr. saved her life from drowning when she was 2). But most importantly, she smiles and laughs like a giggly little girl. And she's happy :)

Well there's a no contact order for the guy who stole my car awhile back, but I doubt he'd be THAT stupid :unsure:

I'm not known for pissing people off, but I come across quite a few juvenile delinquents working at a middle school <_<

Most likely a result of horseplay......I hope

This is all good :D She is living life and she is happy. We told you all those things too, you know :o - well, not the part about the dead fish - not enough information on that one :rolleyes:

Awwwwww.........that's awesome! Except.......

The only thing I hate more than being COLD is NO indoor plumbing! (picked up on that real quick, I did :P )

....and road trips depend on the driver and/or the company. Can't stand hubby's driving, so road trips are out for me too.

I'm getting the impresion that NO INDOOR PLUMBING is doable with the right company also :lol:

So glad the veg and the caveman are so compatible ;)

She doesn't mind the peeing in a bucket thing. Thought she would. But when the company is amazing and you gotta go... You gotta go!! And she's never ever worried about being cold!! ;)

It can be done -- this is exactly what old Mr. Guthrie has been trained to do at my mom's retirement residence.

My kid is a little delinquent. Not sure how much is him being a 6yo boy and how much of it is the divorce. He took a bark chip and wrote "ass" on the gym door a few times. He makes the worst choices and doesn't think AT ALL about the consequences. I don't know what to do. Therapist? Prison? I've taken away everything in his life except food and bathroom privilages and added more homework of my choosing...

Tell him if he's going to be vandalizing other people's property he'd better have nice writing and make him practice letters for a couple hours a day?

Have an extremely detailed discussion about body parts and tell him he needs to understand what he's writing? That next time you expect to see all the muscles and a picture of the structure?

    • I use almond, and coconut a lot now my bakery used to use oat and almond blends. We never used rice, or starches as our goal was to keep it low glycemic. Now days we are transitioning to cut out oats. I started having....ok I omitted and gave in after being in denial a similar reaction to oats (10% of celiacs do if I recall) over a year ago. Anyway as for flour blends premade avoiding rice and grains try simple mills at https://www.simplemills.com/collections/all I have composed a huge list of various gluten-free goods here, even recently updated with grain free, and pizza section https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/  
    • Hello Everyone, New here and have joined because I couldn't find an answer to my question online. I was diagnosed after a long spell with anemia in 2015 and have been on the diet (and improving!) ever since. But I wonder whether how much rice I'm eating is very healthy. I have always liked to bake and it took awhile to find a flour mix I like (Cup 4 Cup - worth its weight in gold...), but a lot of gluten-free food subs in rice (white rice, brown rice, rice flour) plus I eat actual rice as a side dish. Is this too much? Keep in mind, I also eat salads like it's my job and love making vegetable soups too. Any advice on gluten-free foods (specifically flours) that don't fall back on rice as a substitute? I should add that I can't really get excited about quinoa, despite my best efforts. Thanks in advance.  
    • I would say get retested, to be sure, do a gluten challenge with her where she eats gluten for 12 weeks, not much just a half slice of bread a day or a wheat cracker for the blood test and 2 weeks for the biopsy. You mentioned bumps, and dry patches...this might be DH from celiacs and if it is you can go to a dermatologist and they can test it. In some people with DH reactions to gluten, their intestines do not show much damage as most of the antibodies are directed elsewhere. In this case you would have your symptoms. Now Celiac is a autoimmune disease that commonly has other auto immune diseases associated with it. NOW if your daughter has the gene for it she could have another automimmune disease I am not very familiar with and someone else might be able to help you more on suggestions for testing. Now in my personal opinion it sounds like she was still getting into gluten when you said she was off of it. NOTE gluten is a tricky bugger, it is a protein smaller then a germ that can stick in cracks and scratches on all your utensils, food prep area, knifes, etc. As a flour it can hang in the air for hours and even be inhaled effecting some of us. It is present in a lot of things we do not consider, like makeup, playdough, shampoos, seasonings, sauces, even some dry wall spackles.  Now if she is in a shared house hold with other kids and not everyone is on this diet she has likely been getting into gluten somewhere, like touching glutened surfaces the other kids touched after eating gluten foods then putting her hand in her mouth or on safe foods. Or just randomly eating gluten foods, note symptoms can last weeks and wane from how it is effecting you. It does not take much to trigger symptoms you might have to be more careful and move her to a whole foods only diet, and have a separate prep area, utensils, cooking zone for her if you wish to keep fixing separate meals for her vs the gluten family.     I would suggest just changing the entire family over, anyway perhaps start with a separate fold out table, use freezer paper to line the prep area, a microwave, mini toaster oven, and some microwave cook ware like steamers, steam bags, etc. and using gloves to fix her meals. She will need her own condiment jars (crumbs in hte jars) and area for safe snacks. I would suggest getting her only gluten-free CERTIFIED FOODS for now. You can find some whole food healthy snacks at mygerbs.com, and a few other places. I will provide a link to gluten-free food list. PERHAPS you can change the entire family over....now days it is more like changing brands as everything you used to eat is available in a gluten-free brand. ALSO have a lot of dairy free options there. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/  
    • Hi wondering if someone could help. my daughter has mildly raised TTG  levels and the gliadine levels, she has one Coeliacs gene, but her biopsy came back negative.   We have kept her off gluten (and low dairy) for nearly a year to see if her symptoms improved.  They haven't.  But I don't know if they are related to gluten specifically.  Just wondering if anyone has other suggestions that may be going on with her.  Her symptoms are: - Short stature, she's nearly 9 and my 6 year old boy is nearly bigger than her - bumps on back of her arms - urine leaking and occasional soiled pants, which could be from constipation she has at time's - sticking out stomach - dry patchy rashes on her face - joint pain sporadically - vomits every 6 weeks, but hasn't had gluten and seems to be no food connection - reoccurring thrush She had gluten last night at a party and was fine today. I'm a bit lost and not sure where else to turn.  Thanks for any help.
    • We have gone gluten free, our whole house, as of a month ago. It was pretty seamless since I had been gluten-free for 5 months last year. I have found many good recipes, and my picky husband and one of my boys who is also a picky eater, even prefer many gluten-free recipes to the regular ones.  My husband did see my point about the size of the gluten protein means nothing. Its a gluten protein period, that's what you are avoiding. It doesn't matter if its hiding in the scratch of your baking sheet and you can't see it. You can't see the wind, but it's still there. I hear you on the anemia. I've been anemic for several years, I just thought it as because I was getting a little older. Has your anemia gone away or do you still have problems with it?
