Damn... . . . . .the Funny Object thread is now locked. I was steering the debate toward the "thing' being perhaps an elephant's trunk... . ....I was ready to draw diagrams an' everything..... . . . ...

Never mind. The way the board's been going lately I'm sure you'll find another opportunity :rolleyes:

Dani sure did get the best of that whole exchange - showing some new talents.

Guys, I am living with a green-eyed monsta :unsure:

We are still feeding the neighbor's cat. They came back and are renting a few miles away, took her home with them, there was almost immediately another aftershock, and she ran, showed up back here 3-4 weeks later, all skin and bones and burrs, and spooky, but here. She is slowly regaining confidence and putting on condition. She used to show up for food once a day, now it is more like three times a day (winter's coming on). We have to move where we're feeidng her because I have a curved stairwell on the outside of the house with "wonky" glass in three long narrow windows in it but "she who kows she is the apple of our eye" can look out the lowest one and see the unfaithfulness to this other feline creature that is occurring, at the same time the green-eyed one has been put on a diet because our housesitter fattened her up last year and our cutting her back hasn't done a lot of good. So the green-eyed furry one I am sure figures that all the extra food that she should be getting is being transferred to this outdoor interloper :ph34r: She then goes over to the front door and wails, crying her heart out :lol: , until we come back in. And the neighbor's kitty can "feel" the evil eyeball on her.

It was all over my jeal-ous-y :D

T'is a paradox indeed Emmel!

It's been one of the driest winters on record, the reservoirs have run low and so a (garden) hosepipe ban was put in place.

As soon as this was in place it rained virtually EVERY day in April (it's still not enough though to top up the reservoirs for our water supply dry.gif)

SOoo, as the ground is so dry & unporous, the heavy rain has just run off of it causing flash floods.

Fascinating eh? blink.gif

Aw, damn no comments on the Omission gluten-free Beer thread. :(

I'm guessing it's more due to it being in the Publications section than anything else, right?

Beer threads usually get ppl talking.

Anyway . ....how can someone of sound mind name a gluten-free beer OMISSION and not actually omit the barley??????!

Usually Oregon plays to a higher standard in these matters.

These barley gluten-free beers are hard to explain to Hub. He happily goes off on his errand to the beer store. He, ever on the look out for a new, improved gluten-free beer, might bring one of these home. But They say " gluten-free"!

Yes honey, and they achieved their goal - you bought it.

In my world, the babies, including Dufus Drumstick the turkey have all managed to get themselves up the ramp and into the coop. Yay!! I was tired of chasing peeping babies around trying to get them up to bed while their frantic mom ran up and down the ramp trying to get them up to follow her. Sadly, Brine, the other turkey, didn't make it. I think the feed store sold me a sick bird, as he went pretty quickly.

If'n yer bored, check out the pic of Seuss, soggy and filthy, on fb. I laugh at him every time I go out, and he's getting pretty miffed at me. :lol: :lol: :lol:

This is the end of an era here in Canada. Today the Royal Canadian Mint will strike the last one-cent coin (penny) ever.

Oh, and:

May the fourth be with you, Luke. ;)

    • https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ ^Newbie 101 section PS you are diagnosed celiac right? Sorry but a standard question as you should get the diagnosis out of the way before going gluten-free.
      https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/ ^ Have a nice list of food alternatives, including condiments. NOTE we suggest a whole foods only diet starting off to boost healing. Also we suggest dropping anything with oats or dairy for the first few months. Oats some celiacs react to regardless of gluten-free or not, Dairy is broken down by enzymes produced by the tips of your villi, if your celiac these are normally damaged and cause digestion issues or intolerance to dairy.
    • Hi to any & all who read my post, and an advanced thank you to those who reply,        My post may be kind of robust & lengthily, but please read until the end if you are able. To give a sort of "back story" here, I'll explain my situation in a nutshell. In November of 2014 I was diagnosed with a gluten intolerance by my allergist after recurrent, severe mouth ulcers and a bodily rash. I had a blood allergy panel, but NOT a Celiac specific panel, which ruled out other food allergies completely - corn, pea, chickpea, chicken, tomato, egg, milk, etc. My allergist suggested a gluten-free diet, which I adopted & have been adhering to since then. Recently, I've been acutely sick since August of 2016, so we're talking a year plus now. My symptoms began with a burning abdominal sensation, pain after eating, premature and uncomfortable full feeling, bloating, etc. My internist referred me to my current GI doctor where I was diagnosed with GERD (chronic acid reflux) , and prescribed Omeprazole, which I still take daily. My next appointment in February had me still feeling awful & my GI doctor decided to perform an upper endoscopy, which I did in March. He was looking for ulcers, evidence of bleeding or infectious disease, and Celiac. Mind you, I had informed him that I've been eating strictly gluten free for almost three years now. He claimed this really didn't matter? This has left me wondering. Anyway, the results came up empty, but I was found to have evidence of gastritis. Then came the rest of my symptoms - frequent diarrhea, bloody diarrhea, extremely greasy stools, stools that float, mucus in stools, unable to "wait" to use the bathroom (I.e. Urgency), alternations of diarrhea and constipation, weight loss, low grade fever, EXTREME fatigue, poor concentration, memory loss, cognitive decline, and my mouth sores have reared their ugly head once again. After I first went gluten-free, the ulcers probably cleared up for a good year at least, which was heaven on earth for me. Now, they're back with a ruthless vengeance. As we speak, I've barely recovered from one for a day or so, and I'm down with two more. You can't even make this stuff up. After I addressed these new symptoms with my GI, he was concerned I may have had Crohn's Disease or Colitis, so he performed a colonoscopy, which ruled out both conditions through gross observation & biopsy samples. Since colonoscopies can only read so much of your colon & terminal small intestine, I then had a  PillCam to see the rest. The only results he could suggest was that I have a "slow bowel transit," so I was diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. The umbrella term for all intestinal and abdominal suffering with no definitive cause.        Summary of my bible here is that I'm still suffering greatly. The intestinal issues are really giving me poor quality of life, and these pervasive mouth ulcers are more than I can bare anymore with the pain, inability to eat, weight loss, etc. it's all a sick and harrowing cycle that I am caught in the middle of. In saying this, I'm almost curious that I could have Celiac disease that was horribly missed. If I had already been gluten free & a biopsy was taken it would appear as though I'm a healthy individual, no? I was informed you had to be eating a strict gluten FILLED diet prior to ANY testing. ALL of my testing was performed after I already went gluten free, which could have altered results horribly.   I'm almost crazy enough to think that if this is the case, I'm going to eat gluten just so I can be re-tested because I can't go on like this anymore.    Can anyone please clarify and/or suggest something?
    • Interesting the Teflon was the substrate /material the gluten "stuck to" with a higher ppm of cc a synthetic man made versus an organic material iron . Based on her writing further exploration is not likely to get funding but perhaps from this preliminary finding if repeated celiacs in shared households should avoid teflon products.  My husbands bachelor pots and pans were a great set of stainless steel. Our wedding set of dishes mostly have broken.  I purged all pre diagnosis wood , plastic, and and old or very used ceramic and with my son and I both affected the household went completely gluten free.  I wish the budding scientist much success, but hope she followed her own data and ditched all teflon.    
    • Yikes!   Yes!  I will correct.  Thank you. I am so used to being GLUTEN FREE!
    • Maybe you should consider a bone marrow biopsy.   Your hematologist might be on to something.  At least it would rule out several things.  Based on this link, it could be related to SIBO or another AI issue.   http://www.medicinenet.com/neutropenia/article.htm Another possibility is Mast Cell Activation Syndrome or Mastocytosis.  That could explain the WBC, low BP, fatigue, etc.   A bone marrow biopsy is used to diagnose mastocytosis.    https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/blogs/entry/1931-mast-cell-activation-syndrome-madness/ https://tmsforacure.org/overview/
