I have 2 boys who need work! They love animals and have more lightbulbs than they can use ( thanks to a FIRST Robotics fundraiser selling lightbulbs)

hm, would they come here? Or do I need to bring the menagerie to your house?

You could bring them here. They would like where you live and want to stay!

The theatre group is having a "Glee Camp" in August. Different age groups. I think I'll sign up for the adult session. I went to the rehearsal for Pirates of Penzance last night. It's gonna be another great show. :)

The Pirates of Penzance! . . ...Hmmm.. . .love this Gilbert and Sullivan romp....

I am trying to think of a suggestion to give to Jack's drama teacher, who runs the incredible musical that the school puts on every year. Next year there will be a BIG bleeding of talent, as most of the kids who get the leads (those who sing and dance like Broadway folk) are now leaving for university. This means that they will now need to take on a musical with a considerably smaller cast number, perhaps with a very small chorus or one that can be greatly reduced. So I guess that would exclude The Pirates of Penzance --ya need all them swashbucklers jumping around.

All right, you musical afficionados.....ideas? Man, where is Sooooozle when you need her? NO ONE paid greater attention to these things than she did.... <_<:lol:

Pirates is actually fun, and tends to attract men as they love being pirates, but yes, someone has to be able to sing...

Maybe the school will find new talents, now that the hams are all gone. :)

As a High School production, I think this would be most educational as well as intertaining!

I am not really a "regular" silly, but I try to never miss a party so may I also wish you a Happy Birthday as well?

I tried to find one of those birthday-hat wearing, horn- blowing emoticons, but had no luck. Could only find the vomiting emoticon Peter helped me download, but not sure that is appropriate (until later in the evening)

Cheers :)

It happens every time. How cool is that?

I describe it and she finds it and makes it appear!!... She found those happy dancing animals that time and the confetti....

hey! let's try this.

I wish I could find that sexy mocha skinned cabana boy I saw that time in St. John's who runs down the beach yelling Cocktails! Cocktails! and he brings them to you... all melty and they drip down...

oh sorry, IH has been cooped up in the house too long with a bum shoulder. ...okay, gotta go get some air.

oh, I think you can find 'em pretty easily these days. My neighbor "Carlotta" in Bahston had size 12 platform sandals. Now, that "girl" could dance.

Well, I AM silly, granted---but to be a psilly...well.... That's special.

Jumping in on this thread is like coming into the middle of a movie. :lol: :lol: or..like my improv class back in college.

I have no clue what's going on, don't know who all the main characters are, no idea what happened in the first hour and there's no script to follow. :D

You could go back and read all 3000+ pages. After you did that you would be Psilly and cross-eyed!

    • I am going to Mass General in Boston to rule out celiac. I picked it because one of the docs is a lead researcher and it is a 5.5 hour drive. Plus they did a virtual visit with me which was great.  Admittedly, my first actual visit was short and it felt like a long haul for a quick 20 minutes. I spent about $250 on hotel, gas, food and tolls. I stayed right outside of Boston and booked the MGH rate. I am looking at other options if I go again.  I was gluten free at the time so there was not a lot to do at the appointment. My insurance also would not pick up $125 of the visit for some reason.  I cannot give you an overall about time, money etc. as I am still waiting to hear if we are doing another endoscopy. I am hoping they rule it in or out as it has been unofficially diagnosed by two local docs and it is starting to get very frustrating for me as others say it is not celiac and I still feel badly. I do really like the nurse who calls me. She is very receptive.  I can keep you posted! I also looked at Columbia as I live in NY but they did not accept my insurance and Boston is actually just as easy of a drive for me. 
    • We did some upgrade work today, please report any issues.
    • Hi Kathleen, There is a standard called the Marsh Scale that is used to rate the various levels of damage to the gut.  While the lighter damage levels might not show up to the naked eye, the worst damage levels are obviously visible.  The worst levels result in what the call "scalloping" referring to the appearance of the gut lining. Isn't this great, you are learning new stuff already! Welcome to the forum Kathleen!
    • Do not worry.  Didn't you say you talked to a nurse?  She might not even know the procedure for obtaining biopsies for celiac disease.  She might just be thinking endoscopy.  She might even be new to the practice.  Who knows?  Print off the U of Chicago's info and call or email tomorrow with your questions.  If you do not get an answer, then talk to the GI when you see him on Friday. But you need the biopsies.  Villi damage is too small to see!  There are some other signs....but biopsies are key.  
    • I take Jarrow Probiotics and eat coconut yogurt daily. For vitamins I use Liquid health, they have them in liquid form you just measure into a glass of tea or juice and drink it.....BIG deal for me since I already take 4-9pills with each meal.
