Florida was GREAT! We were in St Pete Beach and did a day trip to Sanibel where I got more shells than I know what to do with and saw dolphins really close to shore!

BEV!!! I spent the day on Sanibel once, back when Dad still lived in FL.

Closest thing in the states to a South Pacific feel that I'VE been to anyway. Reminded me of Boracay. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm

Seriously- oh wait! Spring break? March or April? If it's march I'll be in cancun filming Lymies gone wild- IV lines are the new sexy :P :P

:lol:

Except when David wears those buttless chaps!!!!!!!! :ph34r:

Which David?

:lol::P

You all had me reminiscing back to MY younger days (second oldest phart here, somewhere between Peter and Patti).

As a date at a VMI (nikki - Virginia Military Institute and at the time a totally male institute) I saw Tina Turner WITH IKE. I am sure that it was quite a night for many a maiden :rolleyes:

I mainly listen to Classic Rock. I grew up listening to it and really have grown fond of the bands from the 60's and 70's. Those are what are mainly on my IPOD.

My first concert was Aerosmith and I was in the 5th row, center. It was wonderful. I think saw Goo-Goo Dolls at a college campus before they got big. I have seen Journey twice now, Forgeiner, Peter Frampton, BonJovi.

Bon Jovi is in concert in March in Philly but I can't go.

I would love to see Van Halen though

We have similar tastes in music Amanda, I'm a big Classic Rock fan :)

Aerosmith was one band I didn't get to see in the 80s/90s that I would have like to.

Van Halen was awesome, saw them in the "Sammy" days when they toured with Monsters of Rock.

Speaking of college campus concerts, I saw Modern English when they came to my school in 1990..you know that song Melt With You??

This was years after the song was popular, there were about 100 or 150 of us that showed up in this small room, talk about up close and personal! It was fun though.

VH came to fresno recently!! once with sammy and then another time with david

i perfer sammy over david!

I do too!! I LOVE Van Halen with Sammy.

5150 and 0U812 were pretty much the soundtracks for my high school days :lol:

Count me in for Rick Springfield.

I lurve Rick Springfield, is there any song better than Jesse's Girl?!? :lol:

I cut my teeth on 70's stuff--lots of Motown, 3 Dog Night, Elton, Chicago, Neil Diamond, Steely Dan (Deacon Blues--possibly the greatest song ever).

"Your Song" by Elton John reminds me of walking home from school with my best friend, Sandy, before I had a care in the world :rolleyes:

Music played such a huge role in my life growing up and even as an adult. When my older son was born (1981), I had my transistor radio (!) with me at the hospital and "The Tide is High" by Blondie will always remind me of that night.

Yep--hearing a song will put me back to a place in time.....

Neil Diamond, I would LOVE to see him in concert!

Patti, that is so true about music bringing you back to a certain place and time.

Blondie's "The Tide Is High" brings back so many memories for me as well. I was just 8 or so and had just gotten a new record player. I was so excited, my mom took me to a Peaches record store to pick something out to break it in and I picked out Blondie's Autoamerican. I played that record over and over and over again. The Tide Is High was one of my favorites.

I just saw that he is gonna be on Oprah today.

I saw that too :D

Saw Genesis at Wembley Stadium London - - GAD!!! I felt grown up!!! (I was only allowed to go as I was with my brother!! :lol: )

GGGGaaaaaaaaaaWWWWDDDD!!!!! Surely NOT the English ska band???????? :unsure::D

Nikki, this sounds so fabulous! You say it like it's no big deal, oh yeah I saw Genesis at WEMBLEY :blink:

Hee hee, living vicariously through Nikki :lol:

Oh yes, Madness. They were very poplular in the states, their videos a staple on a little ole newly born network called the MTV!!!!

Part dos, busted for over quoting :blink:

Me, too, Patti! We had music playing in my house growing up literally all the time. My mom plays piano, my dad the uke, and if they weren't playing we were listening to Duke Ellington, Frank, Gershwin, big swing bands...

My dad had musical numbers he'd write for his show that ran in the 60's and 70's, and I used to watch him while perched on the stairway, as he practiced an intricate soft-shoe or lip-synced some Al Jolson....Then he'd come to the dinner in full black-face, and we'd tell him not to get makeup on his serviette... :rolleyes::lol:

:lol:

Me three, music was a big part of my childhood. My parents loved music and it was always playing in the house, lots of "oldies" 60s music, Elvis, 5th Dimension, Johnny Mathis, Neil Diamond, John Denver.

Then when my brother and I got a little older we took over with Kiss, Blondie, and REO Speedwagon...and the rest is rock history :lol:

i was king when i had this recorded from teh stereo speakers onto my portable casette player! i would bring it school and we'd rock out !

My Sharona

:lol:

Good song! Good times!

Florida was GREAT! We were in St Pete Beach and did a day trip to Sanibel where I got more shells than I know what to do with and saw dolphins really close to shore!

If it's march I'll be in cancun filming Lymies gone wild- IV lines are the new sexy :P :P

:lol: Lymies are all the rage

Glad you had such a great time in Florida :)

Ok.....I'm about to reveal something that goes way beyond bodily functions and other things I've shared here. I was in the AV club in high school. :ph34r: Kissey's post reminded me of it--I'd bring in 3 45's per day and play them over the loudspeaker after the Pledge and before the announcements. I always got rave reviews on my Seals and Crofts.

Having a deja vu moment........I do recall a conversation about this before because I remember this little unknown fact about you Patti :lol::lol:

ARGHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! busted for too many quotes again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :angry:

Nicola's query - where is kissey:

Kissey - not here - somewhere else - - but we are actually sharing the same brain so it's okay when he's gone.

:wub:

Day On The Green #2: Foreigner, Loverboy, Scorpions, Iron Maiden (July 18, 1982).

Day On The Green #1: Journey, Triumph, Eddie Money, Bryan Adams, Night Ranger (July 30, 1983).

Gary Moore was originally slated to appear but was replaced on the bill by Night Ranger.

Day On The Green #3: The Police, The Fixx, Madness, Oingo Boingo, and The Thompson Twins (September 3, 1983).

Kissey has a small hint but doesn't QUITE know the extent to which I disdain crowds/concerts/loud events with throngs of people (Alex, I totally can relate!!!!).

I did see The Police w/ Oingo Boingo here in Fresno in 1980-something.......but look at Kissey's Day On The Green 1 and 2 - those are bands they watch in hell. :ph34r: Don't tell him I said that. :lol:

OMG guess what you guys........you all know how much I LOOOOOOOOOAATHE musicals and plays............guess where I'm going Thursday night w/ Squats: a musical dinner play of the worst possible calibRE. Yup, a local thing I have avoided for 20-plus years - I think I went once, decades ago.........so we're seeing this play with some of his friends. My mom snorted quite madly in the phone and took great joy in telling me that her friend has seen the play that we are in fact seeing, and that it was quite bad. :blink:

I'm taking a flask. :ph34r: Or else, maybe just some LSD before hand...... ? :lol:

<response to Julie welcoming Kissey>

:lol: kissey is the funnest word and it just makes you really happy to say it. Kissey, Kissey KISSEYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

VH came to fresno recently!! once with sammy and then another time with david

i perfer sammy over david!

Kissey went to Van Halen concerts? oh dear......he's such a metal head. How can this work out? Alas, I have converted him to my music. Slowly, the brainwashing is working..... (I DO have a couple of Van Halen tunes on my Ipod, BTW).......

In response to Patti's post:

Three Dog Night was part of my early childhood........the rest were high school. Except - - OMG - dare I say it here??????????? am I the ONLY person who abhors and doesn't remotely comprehend the appeal of Neil Diamond?????????????? help me......... :ph34r:

Peter/Scooter!!!!!!!!!!!! A Silly is ALWAYS young!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And if it was possible to sound any dorkier, I went through a mildly rebellious stage when I was 19 and I knew one thing that would anger my dad the most was to take up smoking, but my first attempt ended up in me gagging and vomiting in front of a bunch of smokers. We're not even talking about MJ here (that's a entirely different embarrassing story), just plain old cigarettes. I still feel nauseated when I'm around someone smoking.

:lol: I started smoking cigars in 7th grade w/ my best friend Susie Bailey. But can't do them now - will vomit (green-faced emoticon)

GGGGaaaaaaaaaaWWWWDDDD!!!!! Surely NOT the English ska band????????

Madness, The Specials, English Beat - - I saw all of them!!!!!!!!!! Still play almost DAILY some English Beat and Special Beat Service. Kissed Dave Wakeling on the cheek at concert in Monterey, where I saw him three times.

Oh. Fee Waybill of The Tubes kissed ME on the cheek as I was front-and-center, standing on the table, at a small concert here in town when I was young and hot - decades ago. :lol:

Yeah - - well - if Susie likes ya ...you must be ok ;)

oh.........he's more than okay............but don't get me started.........I could go on and on and on..............he's a DREAM. ;)

<okay, OKAY! I"ll stop now>

"Feelin' Stronger Every Day" was another of my personal theme songs last summer as I went thru the awakening of getting my life back. <gittin a lil verklempt now>

thanks for that memory! I just this second downloaded it from Itunes!! :) I do have Kid Charlemagne on my ipod, FYI........Steely Dan was HUGE for us in high school.........and The Stones, Journey (scary - can't ever listen to them again, unlike all other things), Van Halen....lots of Ska including The Clash......and many more.

Me, too, Patti! We had music playing in my house growing up literally all the time. My mom plays piano, my dad the uke, and if they weren't playing we were listening to Duke Ellington, Frank, Gershwin, big swing bands...

My dad had musical numbers he'd write for his show that ran in the 60's and 70's, and I used to watch him while perched on the stairway, as he practiced an intricate soft-shoe or lip-synced some Al Jolson....Then he'd come to the dinner in full black-face, and we'd tell him not to get makeup on his serviette...

Em........your childhood homelife sounds idyllic and dreamy.......and if we ever do have a sillyville reunion, yer dad's a' comin.......................

by the by... im not pullin any fingurs 'round here !!

smart boy.......best not to........but a sidenote on that: Nikki didn't know what "pull my finger" meant as evidently they don't acknowledge that sacred little ritual across the pond........alas, we introduced it to her - her boys love it and so - now it's spreading like wildfire. I think I saw The Queen sticking out her finger to a guard the other day................ :lol:

P.S DON'T LET Susie watch ANY cable TV ( she will NEVER move off the couch )

Kissey already heard my squeal of delight as I blasted out his ear over the phone when I realized I could watch FOOD PORN at his house!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OMG - we had The Knack on 8-track in the early 80's, on this ski boat we had. at the end of the summer, I threw that 8-track and a few others into the lake...............sorry for the polluting........(shame-faced emoticon) but I couldn't take it any more.....ha ha ha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Part Deux coming up..........

Van Halen was awesome, saw them in the "Sammy" days when they toured with Monsters of Rock.

We do!! Do you ever listen to Virgin Classic Rock? It is this awesome channel out of London. We used to stream it all the time when I worked down in the lab. Who knows, one day maybe we will catch a concert together, it would be quite the party!

Ok while we're on the music topic, I'm hearing an awesome variety on my old mp3 C.D.s on the ride to WhF - and :lol: catching up on posts now sitting in pkg lot :lol:

Right now one of the 1st Sade songs, "By Your Side".

"Protection" by Massive Attack; the only Fiona Apple song I liked; "Haunted" by Love&Rockets; "We Only Get What We Give" by the New Radicals & Nick Drake's "Pink Moon".

Gah!!!!! Too much to .. ..which to reply(!)

Must SHOP, drive THEN type!!

But, yeah, my Needle Dimundo (as we somehow called Neil D in our youth) appreciation doesn't go much past 1975's Hot August Night.

:lol: yep

Kissey - not here - somewhere else - - but we are actually sharing the same brain so it's okay when he's gone.

:wub:

Great idea on the brain share (one & the same and all that)

Wondering how Kissey copes with the lone dingo thoughts whilst shampooing carpets though :huh:

I'm taking a flask. :ph34r: Or else, maybe just some LSD before hand...... ? :lol:

Personally I'd drop the tab ;)

Kissey went to Van Halen concerts? oh dear......he's such a metal head. How can this work out? Alas, I have converted him to my music.

Oh ok.........how's he getting on with The Spice Girls and Will Smith??????? :lol:

Madness, The Specials, English Beat - - I saw all of them!!!!!!!!!! Still play almost DAILY some English Beat and Special Beat Service. Kissed Dave Wakeling on the cheek at concert in Monterey, where I saw him three times.

I never knew those bands were big in the US!!!!!

My son appears to be crossing over too . . . got off the school bus with an "I'm reaaallllly cold" . . . now he's running a fever of 101. . . so I guess it's when you start running the fever.

And here is a shocker, the school nurse ended up in the hospital ICU for about a week with double pnuemonia(sp?). I don't think she's home yet. They say she'll end up off work for about a month. Hopefully she'll come back but I heard she was thinking about retiring and this may be the deciding factor.

Kingy say Dingy go download that "By Your Side" (augh! you better NOT have some inexplicable gluten-brain disdain for Sade!!) for a dingoland snuggled singalong.

Such a sweet song of unconditional love.

And I particularly like the way the lyrical phrasing extends outside the musical.

"Hold youuuuuu tiiiiiiight" .. . .<and ya think it's over. .but then>

"to me"

I'd guess the range is right .. . .Susie kinda alto-ish?

OH!!!! GOOSEY!!!

Tina WITH Ike IS quite the coup!!!!

5150 and 0U812 were pretty much the soundtracks for my high school days :lol:

Boyyyyyyy do I remember when VH's 1st record came out. NOOOOOOOOoooooooobody sounded like THAT before!!!!!

:lol: at WhF, "Keep Talkin' 'bout Love!!" was rockin' from ceiling spkrs! :lol:

********************************

(I feel an overquoting coming & I pre-emptively blame Sue :lol::P )

********************************

OMG guess what you guys........you all know how much I LOOOOOOOOOAATHE musicals and plays............

Plays too????? Thought it was just musicals.

Even some Tennessee Williams' et al classic w/ great actors??

(Or just Clooney as Brick?)

:lol: kissey is the funnest word and it just makes you really happy to say it. Kissey, Kissey KISSEYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm getting the feeling Susie's in a good mood.

Madness, The Specials, English Beat - - I saw all of them!!!!!!!!!!

The Untouchables?? <one band of mine opened for them ~'83 before I joined :( >

Oh. Fee Waybill of The Tubes kissed ME on the cheek as I was front-and-center, standing on the table, at a small concert here in town when I was young and hot - decades ago. :lol:

<here I go again> Last band I was in opened for them at Fremont Arts Fest ~'98/99.

It should've been more fun but I was heavily celiac-depressed. :(

thanks for that memory! I just this second downloaded it from Itunes!! :) I do have Kid Charlemagne on my ipod, FYI........

Ahhhh Feelin' Stronger = that summer betw 6th & 7th grade, at the pool w/ best friend, for me. (Besides last summer's theme song)

Walter Fagan on Kid C has the sort of vocal inflections that make Elton's singing special.

"I think the peeeeeeople down the hallllllll know who ya ARE!"

    • Vitamin deficiencies of vitamins D, C, and B12 and Calcium deficiency can all cause night sweats.  (Perhaps the methyl form of B12 is needed for those with that MthFr gene.)  Also, consistently high blood sugar levels can cause night sweats.  As a  type two diabetic, I find if my blood sugar levels are too high or not below 120  two hours after eating, i am prone to night sweats.  Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) can also cause them, usually accompanied by the shakes and teeth chattering for me.    Cycling Lady is right about night sweats being caused by other illnesses, too, like heart valve problems or tuberculosis, so be sure to check with your doctor.   Hope this helps. P.S. Saw your picture.  You're looking good!  So happy for you!
    • It's unfair to make such a general statement about ER's and hospitals.  Unfortunately, I've been to the ER several times and hospitalized three times in the past few years.  The staff took me seriously when I told them I had celiac.  Popsicles and drinks were checked for gluten, and a good laugh took place when a nurse came in to remove the cheesecake that was brought to me when the staff found out it was our anniversary. Dietary services were called and Lucy's gluten free cookies were given to me instead. Once admitted to the hospital, a dietician was sent to my room to discuss meals and she checked back with me a couple of times.  The only mistake made was the dairy free protein shakes that were delivered daily and left untouched.  When dietary called my room to ask why I wasn't drinking them, my husband had to inform them to read the label as it was clearly labeled containing milk products.

    • Hello, I have been dealing with a mysterious rash for the past ten years that I am slowly beginning to think is DH.  It comes and goes, is itchy as all get out and shows up in all the areas that DH appears (elbows, back, torso, knees and base of neck).  It comes and goes over the years which has thrown me a little, but from what I can tell it can happen with DH? Anyways I went to an allergist, he was a jerk and told me it was not an allergy and to get a biopsy (which was done ten years ago when it first happened, but okay).  Me being at my wits end I called up a local dermatologist and got an appt for a biopsy.  I went in armed and ready with the info I have read here about the correct biopsy etc.  Well of course the dermatologist wouldn't give me the time of day Would not listen to the past history of the rash or look at photos, was in and out within five minutes and insisted on a scratch biopsy instead of a punch biopsy.  She simply said she would be highly surprised if it was DH.  I try to respect doctors so I pushed but I did not push hard enough.  She did the scratch biopsy against my recommendations.  So that brings us to today when I received a message that the biopsy showed an allergy and that they could either give me an order of prednisone or refer me to an allergist.  Now if you remember my local allergist sent me away and said it wasn't an allergy.  I am so done and I refuse to just keep medicating myself, I need to find the root cause.   So I have a physical tomorrow night with my regular doctor and I am tempted to just insist on a punch biopsy next to the rash for a proper biopsy.  Couple questions for you guys though.  If a scratch biopsy came back as an allergy could that possibly lead to gluten allergy (I know it doesn't prove that, but could it mean it could be gluten?).  Should I keep pushing for a punch biopsy? I am planning to go gluten free after this appointment anyways but I keep eating it to try and get a proper diagnosis.  I feel I should get a proper diagnosis, one to keep me on track, one to make sure that is what it is and also I did try gluten free for 30 days before and it didn't seem to help the rash.  But from what I have read that could have been to short of a time.  I feel I need a proper diagnosis to help me stay with it and keep on the right path.   Lastly, the rash definitely went through stages and is at an end stage, still itches like crazy but isn't as bad looking as when it started.  Does it matter when you take the biopsy as long as there is a rash it will potentially show?  I hope all this makes sense.  I am tired of being told I am crazy from doctors.  If they could find the solution I wouldn't be looking myself.  I would be very happy to be proved wrong but so far that has not happened and I just want an answer! So tired of being itchy!! Thank you very much for your help and listening!!!
    • I'm sorry I don't have much advice for you but I can relate in some ways. I've took generic Zoloft for about 10 years. When I was diagnosed celiac I worried about and researched my medications and am confident that they are safe for me. I have spent many years fighting depression and anxiety and have tried different meds but finally accepted I need the Zoloft and Xanax probably for life. I will say that most of our serotonin is in our stomachs and any time I switched meds or had to withdrawal my stomach issues were the worst. So please be careful with switching or stopping ( never cold turkey) any psychiatric medication. Also you could be sensitive to other grains. Gluten free bread does not like me. Also so far I have not found any one in the medical field that takes celiac seriously. I have been laughed at even and most don't have a clue what problems gluten does to us mentally and physically.
