Syracuse is about a four-hour drive from here, exclusive of delay time at the border.

Take I-90 west to I-290 to I-190 north and cross at Queenston/Lewiston. Then take Hwy 405 to the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW). Follow the QEW around the west end of the lake, then take Hwy 403 to Hwy 401 East. Get off at Yonge St, and go south 1.8 miles and turn right at the lights where Pizzaville is. It's the pet store on your left, right after you turn. Free parking on site. ;)

But we're 4-4 1/2 from Syracuse :(<_< <whinephace> (Mark used that as a vantage point, since that's our hometown) You are going to have such a hoot--Em is exactly like she is here--just the loveliest, smartest, phunniest goil! :rolleyes: Have yer camera ready.......

Uncle ray has a birthday joke for you!

Always get a Second Opinion

Second Opinion!

The doctor said, 'Joe, the good news is I can cure your headaches. The

bad news is that it will require castration.

You have a very rare condition, which causes your testicles to press

on your spine and the pressure creates one hell of a headache. The

only way to relieve the pressure is to remove the testicles.'

Joe was shocked and depressed. He wondered if he had anything to live

for. He had no choice but to go under the knife. When he left the

hospital, he was without a headache for the first time in 20 years,

but he felt like he was missing an important part of himself. As he

walked down the street, he realized that he felt like a different

person. He could make a new beginning and live a new life.

He saw a men's clothing store and thought, 'That's what I need... A

new

suit.'

He entered the shop and told the salesman, 'I'd like a new suit.'

The elderly tailor eye d him briefly and said, 'Let's see... size 44

long.'

Joe laughed, 'That's right, how did you know?'

'Been in the business 60 years!' the tailor said.

Joe tried on the suit it fit perfectly.

As Joe admired himself in the mirror, the salesman asked, 'How about a

new shirt?'

Joe thought for a moment and then said, 'Sure.'

The salesman eyed Joe and said, 'Let's see, 34 sleeves and 16-1/2

neck.'

Joe was surprised, 'That's right, how did you know?'

'Been in the business 60 years.'

Joe tried on the shirt and it fit perfectly.

Joe walked comfortably around the shop and the salesman asked, 'How

about some new underwear?'

Joe thought for a moment and said, 'Sure.'

The salesman said, 'Let's see... size 36.

Joe laughed, 'Ah ha! I got you! I've worn a size 34 since I was 18

years

old.'

The salesman shook his head, 'You can't wear a size 34. A size 34

would press your testicles up against the base of your spine and give

you one hell of a headache.'

New suit - $400

New shirt - $36

New underwear - $6

Second Opinion - PRICELESS

:o Dear Lord!!!!!! I'm a Scorpio too but Year of the Sheep BAA! BAAAAAHAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!! :P (You realize you are only 2 years older than me which makes you very, very young!)

Emily, here is your Chinese horoscope:

Year of the Snake -

In the Chinese zodiac, snake is listed after the dragon, but its place and the significance as the symbol of worship is far behind the dragon's. The snake carries the meanings of malevolence, cattiness and mystery, as well as acumen, divination and the ability to smoke distinguish herbs. In some places, people believe that a snake found in their court can bring sexy delight. In Spring Festival, people like to paste naked snakes onto their doors and windows the paper-cut 'Fu' character (happiness), combined with the snake twisting around a rabbit as a popular pattern indicating youse gonna get a whoopin if you mess wif us wealth.

People born in the year of the snake often have a good temper tantrum, a skill of communicating, and a gracious morality, but they are likely to be jealous and suspicious. They should be cautious about discussion with others(is this for real?), as that might cause them to lose friendship and opportunities. Women under the sign of the snake do well in housework but are irritable. They might gradually enjoy happiness in their old age. (Might? What do you mean might?)

Best match: ox, rooster; avoid: tiger, monkey, pig

Everyone has a personality of a cartoon character. Have you ever asked yourself what cartoon character do you most resemble?

Perfect date has only choices a) thru e)?????????? Mefinks we need an F) choice :o

And FavoUrite music has no 'late 50s/early 60s Jazz' choice!!!!

Heyyyyyyy!! No Action or Mystery choice for movies????????!! Where's Vertigo go??

(Maybe I'm just not a cartoon char?)

. . ....

.. ..

OK .. .hearing that Snoopy, Spongebob & Elmo were some of the outcomes, I desperately wanted to at LEAST be one that existed when I was a kid (is Ricochet Rabbit still alive?? El Kabong? Deputy Dawg??) <pleeznotspongebobpleeznotspongebob>, but I turned out as Elmo, and suppose I'm a tad Tickled anyway. :P

Em- my mom got 6 inches of snow overnight.....

Apologies to yer mum but . ... . ..was I the only one? Despite that youtube-ish clip of the anchorwoman speaking to the weather guy of last night's 8"??

.. .there is a real possibility of 20 cm of snow overnight. :o Like, 10 inches.......

Well hey it IS your birthday!! :o

I AM a Snoopy! but.......he seems cheerier than I am, so that can't be right..... <_<

Hmmmm how to launch "Project Re-Snoopification" for Eeyore here . ...

Okay, I'm just back on. Right after I posted the driving directions, the internet connection at the store crashed. Again. :angry:

The problem is on their end, which I strongly suspected before I even called India for support. :angry: :angry: They are "working on it." :unsure:

I'm at home now, catching up.

Mygawd, these directions are easier than the ones we have for getting from the ferry docks to your store, POeter! :lol: Patti, it sounds so easy and close - - COME!! :)B)
Patti's directions were easy to give--a memory dump. To give them from Philly would have taken some investigation, but I drove the mentioned route many, many times between 1976 and 2006. Okay, not the whole thing, only as far east as Thruway exit 44, SE of Rochester. :D

It's the ferry docks that are the challenge. They are kind of out of the way. Oh, wait, here are simple directions: From the docks, walk north six miles on Yonge St. :lol:

Souuuczzzieeeee!!!!!!!........get yer sillie back pronto!..........alright, whose got her sillie?.....I miss our late night psillie-phests :angry:

Oh....I must tell you all about DS's latest news from Nacogdoches. They had to go out in the wilderness for a class assignment.

Picture this.......

It is night.......they have flashlights, hip-waders, and a pole with a rope on the end (like you see being used by animal control to catch stray dogs)

Their mission.......to go into the water to catch alligators! :o

They must wade in, shining their flashlights around to catch the glow of their eyes.........alligators eyes glow red........then put the rope around it's neck and HANG ON TIGHT!!!!!.....careful you don't snag one that is too big......they found a 10 ft one........best to leave that one alone!

This should give a mother a panic attack for sure, but for some reason......I'm OK with this. I guess I've heard enough of his wilderness stories that it's just another day in the life of DS. :P

POeter! What were you doin' going back and forth, T.O. to Rochester, for 30 years? Do you have family down there?

It's the ferry docks that are the challenge. They are kind of out of the way. Oh, wait, here are simple directions: From the docks, walk north six miles on Yonge St. :lol:

Will do! Quite the thruway, Yonge Street is.....it eventually becomes the Trans-Canada Highway, does it not?

I'm a spongebob. Or as my niece calls him, Squarebob Spongepants. Which would have been a nice thing to have today, sponge pants. Oh my tummy.....

Spongepants! What a superb idea! For those who have been glutened - - to hell with the pads or sanitary stick-em liners for accidents..... . . mere child's play for some. Pants made entirely of sponge . .. ..fantastic! Although they'd be fairly stiff when dry - - difficult to bend yer legs and such. . .. . <_<:lol:

Scorpio, but year of the dragon.

Gahhh! Methinks this is quite a serious, portentious combination. Must ask my Asian student......perhaps you are destined for Sainthood, Jess. . ....

;)

Very lovely birthday dinner this evening. Every dinner I have with both parents there is more and more special each year.

We were having our coffee when my dad suddenly said, "After they make styrofoam, what do they ship it in?"....... ..

:huh::lol:

    •  Oh good luck with your challenge and I hope you're able to feel better soon!   Yes, I am well aware of Michael Marsh and his thoughts  and they are certainly in the back of my mind.  I was on gluten for 5 months when I had the most recent antibody testing. Admittedly my TTG was the highest I've ever seen it but it's still a 7 and the reference range goes up to 20.
    •  That is true most people on the board do refer for Endoscopy  and are responsible in their replies to people who are initially reaching out. But I did have experiences where some folks will tell people that  certain tests are only positive with celiac disease. Which is not the case, so I'm just reminding those folks. 
    • Yes!!!!  My best advice to expedite healing is to NOT eat out until you are feeling great and really think you have mastered the diet.  If you must eat out, use a site like "Find Me Gluten Free" and select only those restaurants reviewed by celiacs.  Otherwise pack your own food and eat at supermarkets.  I hope you feel better soon!  
    • Why?  Why bother to get tested?  A gluten challenge can be brutal and long (8 to 12 weeks for the blood test and 2 to 4 weeks for the endoscopy): http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-a-gluten-challenge/ I just had anemia which prompted my doctor to run a celiac panel.  I waited 7 weeks for my endoscopy due to work constraints.  I ate gluten like crazy (I knew I had celiac disease in my heart).  At the end of those 7 weeks, I had all the classic gut symptoms which took over a year to resolve.  Even a glutening has triggered new  (I think) additional autoimmune issues.  I would urge you to to carefully consider the benefits of a challenge based on your current AI issues.  At least talk to a good doctor.   My hubby has been gluten-free for 16 years -- long  before my diagnosis and he does not know if he actually has celiac disease, but we know gluten makes him sick.  He chooses to never do a challenge.   As far as healing or seeing results.  It varies as we are all different.  My anemia, with supplements, resolved within three months but other issues took more than a year and I already had a good handle on the gluten free diet. Finally, reducing gluten is not an option for a celiac.  Anything over 20 parts per million can trigger a celiac disease flare-up for most celiacs. I hope this helps.  Just be sure you really research this throughly is my non-medical advice.    
    • People here are told to go to a gastroenterologist for an endoscopy if they show high on any one test. They are not told they have celiac. Weak high numbers can be other things, but strong high numbers are celiac most of the time. That's what my gastro told me. As nobody here is a doctor we can only give an opinion.
