Smackl is auditioning for the middle school jazz band today . . . he's not convinced he wants to do it. Why you might ask? . . . Too hard? Doesn't like Jazz? No, it's because practice is BEFORE school. I told him he would get up at the same time and just eat breakfast in the car on the way there. He's not convinced. Chances are he won't make the cut anyway. This is the first year he's eligible to even try out and they don't take very many kids.

Guess who made the cut? . . . must have been that extremely large donation that hubby and I made to the Performing Arts Department. :P

Oops phorgot-- I like the sound of Ms. c.c :). I still have the wave down from the old parade/phloat days. hee

Ms. Cross-Contamination??? That doesn't sound good . . . what? are you covered in crumbs or something? :lol:

hee

I think you need to spell the whole thing out, rather than being Ms. c.c. -- wrong connotation :rolleyes:

Oh, and somebody should probably warn Nickers - it's about time for her boiler to erupt again. :blink:

So I just thought of a funny-cute story I haven't shared. My parents were on nursery duty one day for church, and only one little 3 year old boy was in there, Gabe. So my dad picks him up and takes him over to the window where he heard a helicopter, shows it to Gabe, and asks him, "Where do you think the helicopter is going, Gabe?" (Keep in mind this little boy ADORED my father) So Gabe replies, in the most adult, DUH tone you can possibly imagine, "The AIRPORT."

Stupid adults..... :lol: :lol:

Here the OSU marching band making their feeble attempt at marching straight and playing music at the same time. They even had to get a horse involved to help them make some headway.

OSU Marching Band Games

I recognized 3 or 4 games but I think there are quite a few more I didn't recognize. Anybody else know what they are? 9 minute video, with music of course.

I took that as a challenge . . . and brought in my 11 year old expert (Skeeter). My 13 year old expert (Smackl) is in the middle of Spanish tutoring.

This is what Skeeter has come up with:

Space Invaders

Pokemon

Pikachu (a Pokemon character)

Tetris

Mario Brothers

Super Star (from Mario Bros)

Mario

Halo

Zelda

Epona (the horse from Zelda . . . way cool, by the way)

Bird Guy (from Zelda. . . not his official name)

Bowser's Castle (from Mario Bros)

PacMan

GAME OVER

What else you got, GeeEfff????!!!!

Heck, he beat me all to crap.

I had Tetris, and Pac Man, Halo ( cause they speiled it out), and I thot Space Invaders and Pong, but I may have been imagining those ones. I was expecting to see Bio-shock, but didn't catch it if it was there.

Geez, this is hard stuff! Game over for me tho, Skeeter is the weener! :)

Patteigh's got a bunch of (big-thumbed?) guys up in her bedroom, getting gluteny crumbs all over everything.... . ...this is likely a fantasy of many women.., . ...not celiac women, mind you -- but those with properly functioning immune systems.....

In a deep, breathy voice... .. ....."C'mon, baby... . .. ...gluten me.. . . ...here, now....don't stop. . ......"

    • Popcorn, wine, as well as coffee are my favorite things.  Have you identified what is left to enjoy?  
    • I think you need to take a little time to learn about DH and celiac disease.  Celiac and DH are technically autoimmune disorders.  This is about DH: https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/dermatitis-herpetiformis/ Learning about celiac disease (overview): https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/what-is-celiac-disease/ Testing for celiac disease via blood test: https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/diagnosing-celiac-disease/screening/ I think the full panel is around $400 and the basic budget screening which is pretty darn good (TTG IgA) is under $100.   If you are paying for your medical care (even under insurance) you have the RIGHT to copies of everything.  So, when your doctor orders a lab test, ask for a copy of the order, so YOU know what he is ordering.  Then you can google to see if he/she is ordering the right things.  Get a copy of the results.  Get a copy of the costs/receipt if you are paying out of pocket.  Put your requests in writing.   I think some labs and doctors use the term for gluten allergy incorrectly.  1.  There is a wheat allergy (IgE) that is like a peanut allergy which can cause anaphylactic reactions (throat swelling, breathing issues, drop in blood pressure).  There are some blood tests that are about 50% accurate, along with skin scratch tests (also not super accurate.   2.  There is celiac disease (autoimmune that when exposed to gluten attacks the intestinal track, skin or brain) triggered by gluten (I gave you the blood tests: TTG, DGP EMA).  3) Non-celiac Gluten sensitivity or Intolerance which is like celiac in terms of symptoms, but no antibodies are generated and intestinal damage does not occur.  This diagnosis is reached when you have failed the first two as there are n tests for it.   Read through the DH section of this forum for symptoms and tips.   I hope this helps.   Finally, if you really suspect DH, you  can always go gluten free.  Keep in mind that you need to be strict and you need to adhere to the diet for at least six months to a year.  
    • I mean I might get a prescription refill, or a new vitamin pill for example, and take it for awhile, with absolutely no symptoms.  As we know, no symptoms does not mean no damage being done.   I will feel fine for weeks, but then I start feeling awful, like a bad flu coming on.  I never did get the intestinal symptoms others get.  This for me is the hardest part of having Celiac's, figuring out what did it.  Last month I ended up with pneumonia because I thought the achey symptoms I was having was from gluten, maybe from cross contamination even though my kitchen is off limits to gluten, maybe from some new prescription, maybe from some new tea I was trying, maybe from new vitamins (marked gluten free but not certified, those have gotten me before), so I stopped taking all of that but didn't feel better and kept getting worse.   It took me awhile to figure out I actually had a flu and by that time it went to my lungs and had to go to urgent care. 
    • If you get accidentally glutened, how do you keep doing it for several weeks? Or do you mean you get glutened once and several weeks later you react? 
    • I think, at least from my personal experience, that these tests are accurate if you were diagnosed including blood work that was positive.  All of the tests on my panel were positive by large numbers at diagnosis and over the next year, they went to very low normal for the ranges given.  My GI symptoms were gone by then and the lingering neuro ones took longer to heal but they did. I would assume in a highly symptomatic Celiac, that resolution of symptoms, normalization of the blood work and weight gain would indicate healing.  Whether I am 100% healed or not doesn't matter as my health is far better today than it was in my youth.  I have not developed any more AI diseases than the 4 I already have and I call that a big win. I think doctors do not take into account enough symptom resolution, weight gain for the skinny Celiac's or weight loss for those on the opposite end of the spectrum, as important markers for healing.  I am not even sure if it is totally necessary for a person to heal 100% as there is overlap in the small intestine and nutrients are absorbed not in just one place, making it a brilliant design, when you think of it.  If your health has improved dramatically on the gluten-free diet, along with the other things mentioned, then consider yourself healed well enough that you've regained your health back.  Repeat endoscopy's are really for those still having problems.
