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..........

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.

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............

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!!!!!!!!!!

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. :(

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.

    • The beginning of your story sounds very much like mine. I stopped eating gluten regularly when I adopted a mostly paleo diet years ago (bonus: my lifelong canker sores disappeared!). When I got 23andme testing done and learned I have both high-risk celiac genes, I stopped eating gluten altogether, thinking I couldn't trigger celiac if I didn't have gluten exposure. But, since I didn't have a celiac diagnosis or symptoms, I wasn't careful about cross-contamination.  Then I got sick. My symptoms were vague: bloating, food sitting like a rock in my stomach after eating, exercise intolerance, weight loss, chest tightness. I had a bunch of tests, tried omeprazole, and eventually had an endoscopy. Because I hadn't eaten gluten in a year, I didn't expect any results suggesting celiac, but sure enough, my biopsies came back as Marsh 1: inconclusive, but all the other reasons to cause this result had already been ruled out or were very unlikely. I then had bloodwork for celiac, which was negative, as expected for anyone on a gluten-free diet. At this point I was sent to a gastroenterologist, who said she could not definitively diagnose me with celiac, and that my options were either to assume I have celiac and live like a celiac, or to do the full 12-week gluten challenge and then repeat all the testing. i didn't want to take the risk of triggering another autoimmune disease by doing the gluten challenge, so I cleaned up my kitchen, replaced my cutting boards, cast iron pans, and anything plastic or silicone, and confined gluten to one corner of the counter. I started being the annoying person at restaurants and potlucks asking a thousand questions. And my symptoms went away. i still don't know whether I have celiac. I struggle with the restrictions it places on my life outside of my home (travel, social life). Periodically I wonder whether I shoukd just do the gluten challenge so I know. But I'm afraid of the possible risks. Your allergist did you a great disservice my telling you to go on a gluten-free diet without testing you for celiac. But that ship has sailed. At this point I would say your choices are the same as mine: either do a complete 12-week gluten challenge and then retest, or decide to live as if you had a firm celiac diagnosis. It can be a tough decision. Good luck and I hope you figure it out and get better very soon!  
    • We do not have gluten in my home other then the bread he  Uses to make school lunch sandwiches.  however I am divorced so he spends a good part of the week at his dad's as well where he can eat whatever he wants. My son is a terrible eater and has been very picky since he was 2 years old, he's now 6.  Up until recently he literally would only eat 5 things. He once vomited all over my kitchen after I insisted that he try watermelon.   In the last several months he's been expanding what it is that he will eat however. Unfortunately still no fruits or vegetables, I have to sneak those In via juice.  it is actually one of the reasons that  I am not in a hurry to get him tested. I have to return to Boston to see my specialist next summer and we are going to take my son with us then for testing.  so it buys me time to expand his food list just in case we have to take half of it away.  my brother's children however, because he's a farmer, have always eaten a lot of Whole foods.  his house is totally gluten free but his mother-in-law will take his daughter out for treats occasionally. She does not seem to suffer any adverse reactions. My nephew on the other hand was always constipated and bloated when he was on gluten.  The kids will literally just walk out into the garden and grab a cucumber and start eating it basically.  I'm not even exaggerating. I am envious that his kids will do that and I wish that I had  tried harder with my son when he was younger instead of always defaulting to what he would eat.  I know my nephew will verbalize a memory of not liking some of the changes that were made initially at their house, like with the gluten-free bread. But then he will say he likes it now. So I think kids do definitely adjust  their preferences.  unless of course you're my son, and then the neighbors are wondering whether or not they should call Child Protective Services because  There is an awful lot of screaming next door at dinner time.

    • Before ordering the endoscopy, you would think they would order the complete celiac panel.  Not all celiacs (like me) ever get a positive TTG (I do test positive to the DGP, but negative to the EMA and TTG).  You would think that the additional blood tests would be way more cost effective than going directly to endoscopy.  The endoscopy usually is still considered necessary for a celiac diagnosis, but there does not seem to be strong evidence that she has celiac disease other than a family history.   Some celiacs are seronegative negative, but your daughter was only negative on just one of the celiac tests.  So, she MIGHT be seronegative.  More investigation is needed.  She is NOT IgA deficient, at least for celiac testing (for celiac disease this test is just a control test).   The DGP test seems to be better for small children.   I do not have the complete health history of your child, but I would seek a second opinion before going to an endoscopy at this time with only one test result.  Try to find a celiac-savvy GI -- one who follows what the American GI Association  recommendations for celiac disease and what the Mayo Clinic or a large celiac research center recommends for testing protocol. https://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/it-mmfiles/Celiac_Disease_Diagnostic_Testing_Algorithm.pdf https://gi.org/guideline/diagnosis-and-management-of-celiac-disease/
