I wrote a reply and hit the wrong key then POOF it disappeared into cyberspace. Anway, you should be extremely proud. My 20 year old has been taking Martial Art since he was 6. At times he wanted to drop out but we changed schools (Princeton Academy of Martial Arts). His Sifu trained under Bruce Lee and Dan Isanto came at least twice a year. I don't want to make this about my son - I want to focus on Tim. Sending applause to him. What a great accomplishment. KUDOS!!!!

Love, Loey

P.S. how old is Tim?

P.S. to yesterday. Dermatologist said it was a staph infection. It got into my blood stream, hence my breast lesions. I'm on Septra DS and Murpirocin. If it doesn't clear up when I see the doc in 2 wks I'll have to have it surgically removed. Thinking positive. IT WILL HEAL!!!!!!!! Time for me to go to my oncologist and then off to do errands (it's amazing how much I enjoy doing my errands again).

Love,

Loey

Timothy is 8, he will be 9 by the time (this November) he tests for his full Black Belt. My wife and I are taking class with him, so we all will be testing in November. Should be fun! They also just invited him to join the CIT program (Certified Instructor Training)!

This started as a way to treat his ADHD, and now had grown into a family sport. :lol:

Congratulations to Timothy!!

Change Timothy to Smackl (that's what I call my son on-line). Change Karate to Tae Kwon Do. Change a couple of the dates/ages and you've got my son . . . including the ADHD and the instructor training program.

I love it!!! Smackl was never destined for a team sport and this program has been perfect for him.

Congrats to you adults as well . . . that is something I couldn't do . . . really bad knees here.

Hiya Loey, good to hear from you and glad to hear you are out and about.

My son's friend's mom: " How are you? I know you haven't been well lately" Me: "Getting better, thanks. Found out I was full blown Celiac, so no more gluten for me. It's been really hard to get used to." "Really!? Because I went totally gluten free to get 'bikini ready' for our trip and it's SOOO easy!" Blank stare. (in my head: "Assholes wear bikinis??") Sigh. Celiac makes me cranky.

Hah, had to post this one to prove you are so right. And hot ones too!

I hope this balloon pic doesn't offend. If it does feel free to remove picture. My sister in New Mexico sent me this today. Said it was from the Albuqurque Baloon Festival

Yes they do!

Heh, we used to call him Tymber online.. but got dropped along the way. Between homeschooling, and Karate so far we have been able to work on teaching him to cope with his ADHD without drugs. I am not against medication when it is needed (heck, I have done the ADHD meds myself) but if we can training him to cope with out drugs, he will be much better off. Then he can harness the benefits of ADHD (drugs remove them to a degree) and overall be healthier. :)

And if not, at least he now knows how to properly kick someone in the face. Always a useful skill! :lol:

So my son is having symptoms again (we suspect some candy he got at a party...but anyways) and we are talking about what to do to with him. He wanted to stay home and do something he enjoys because he has a stomach ache. So my wife says to him "you can't stop living just because of a stomach ache.."

I think most adults would understand what she meant, meaning you cant let Celiac stop you from enjoying life, but not Timothy.. he was like "No, I don't want to die!" :blink::blink:

:lol: :lol:

English really is a messed up language!

Tired. The pirate is living here this week. His exhaust sprung a leak and he rebuilt it from parts from Home Depot. Just waiting on the heat tape.

While here, he's cut up most of my scrap wood and is burning it in the Weber with no legs.

Burn ban here . . . guess you don't get too many of those.

Ice cream is OK though :rolleyes: no ban on that . . . although there probably should be for me.

And you sound like my indigent kids. :rolleyes:

He's an eat-anything kind of guy, although he eats mainly gluten-free with me. He's also 6'2", so he made the "gluten shelf" on top of the cabinets where I couldn't possibly get into his stuff. :rolleyes:

The boat motor is inboard, so the exhaust is wrapped in heat tape to minimize the heat escape into the cabin. He had to tear apart the bed to get at it, and his mattress is in the walkway.

It was fun watching him and the plumber helper lady at HD. They sat on the floor putting together pieces of pipe to try to make something the same size and shape as his exhaust riser, which was one piece of custom bent pipe. The repair has 3 90 degree joint thingies and several pieces of pipe of varying lengths. He had to get one piece custom welded, but we found a guy with the right type of welder (tig welder, if that makes sense to anyone) in his garage. The welder guy also managed to save a flange that's being reused. Total repairs - less than $100, buying the custom piece from the boat manufacturer - ~$400, plus three weeks minimum to wait for them to custom build it.

We is thrifty. Next weekend we're volunteering at a bluegrass festival so's we can get in free. :rolleyes:

Jestman,

I'd so be there for the festival if you lived near Bainbridge GA vs. DC. Our RV (We call it 4 Sheets to the Wind, it's a 4 Winds) is a 1992 model and we're not good at engineering like your houseguest. B)

    • King Arthur makes my favorite gluten-free chocolate cake do not try the store brand Walmart version of gluten-free Oreo style cookies... they are awful. Have you read the noob section yet? Has some great info on how to buy things and organizing the kitchen, and what to get rid of.  Welcome!
    • There likely was no gluten in the snocone.  But you might want to figure outj why she is  NCGI.  Maybe it's FODMAPS? Wheat is a high FODMAP food, but I think the snow cone is, too.   You don't store gluten, so you aren't cleansing yourself of it.  Healing from Celiac damage does take time.  Depending on why you think she is NCGI, she may not need much time to heal.  It may just be a matter of getting her GI system regulated and working with the new normal diet
    • Thank you all so much for the help!  And yes, we are very lucky that she does not have to worry as much about cross contamination as if she had celiac.  Although I was shocked as to how sick she became the other day after eating a snow cone of all things!  The gal did not think the syrup had gluten but within a half hour of eating it, my daughter had a severe stomachache with a headache followed by fatigue and crying off/on the rest of the day.  We are also only a few weeks into this and understand the first few weeks to months of being gluten free can be hard as the body essentially is cleansed of gluten and heals.  Anyway, Thank you all again for the advice and support!  The information is wonderful!
    • I agree with what Peter said.  Also, because he doesn't  actually have Celiac, you may not need to be as extremely careful as a Celiac.  That will make life much easier, especially when eating out or at parties, etc.
    • Here's a list of my favorites so far: Note: insert the words "gluten free" in every item mentioned as some of the companies also sell non gluten free stuff. It's tedious to write that phrase all the time. Get a chest freezer to store all of your frozen gluten-free foods. Makes things easier. Bread: Canyon bakehouse without question is the most realistic tasting bread.
        Schar comes in a close second.
          Canyon bakehouse plain bagels are practically indistinguishable from regular bagels.
          Canyon bakehouse white bread makes fantastic toast. It has a very slight
                       sweet taste to it. My friend says it tastes like normal bread. The
                       only difference to me is the sweetness.
          Canyon bakehouse deli rye is great if you like rye bread sandwiches. Toasted is best.
          Canyon bakehouse multigrain tastes exactly like multigrain bread and does not need
                       to be toasted.
          Schar baguettes are fantastic.
          Katz makes an English muffin that, after toasted, reminds me of a real one provided
                       it has stuff on it like butter. I think that's the brand.
          Etalia has a good boule (sp?) if you prefer artisan bread. Pizza crust:
          Shar makes a good thick and chewy crust.
          Udis makes a good thin and crispy crust.
          Etalia makes a great New York crust. Pasta:
          Barilla makes the only good pasta that I know of. Spaghetti cooks the best.
          RP has a frozen pasta that I'm going to try next. Flour:
          Pamelas all-purpose flour is great for making gravy and batter for fried foods. Cereal:
          Envirokidz Gorilla Munch cereal is an equivalent to corn Pops. Cookies:
          Glutino and Kinnikinnik make a decent Oreo equivalent.
          Mi Del makes a great ginger snap.
          Goodie Girl mint slims - fantastic girl scout mint cookie equivalent Cake:
          Betty Crocker chocolate cake tastes the same, but you have to get the time
                      exactly right. It is a very small window of time. Too long and it's too dry. Frozen meals:
          Udi's Chicken Florentine is addictive and Broccoli Kale lasagna is a good white lasagna. Restaurants (not from personal experience, just from research)
          Chinese – PF Changs. Employees are supposedly trained in gluten free.
          Burgers – In N Out. The only thing here that is not gluten free are the
                      buns so it is very easy for them to do gluten free. They are
                      also trained in it. They are only out west. Road Trip!
          Outback steakhouse. Employees are supposedly trained in gluten free. How
                      good they are depends on where you live.
