It's almost fall here in Northern Maine, leaves are changing, the air is crisp, nightfall comes earlier, and I've managed to get tonsilitis, yet again...it should be a national holiday after all of these years, my contracting tonsilitis marks the beginning of fall and spring each year, how awesome...not. 😳😳 Anyone noticing any fall changes where they are?? I refuse to decorate for another week, or so, well perhaps when I feel better lol (a week or so lol) I <3 fall, it might be my favorite season. If you've never seen Maine in the fall I highly reccomend it, it's absolutely amazing! Mt. Katahdin is absolutely breath taking this time of year! Happy almost Fall to you all!! ☺☺☺

Other than the food (especially seafood) and my friends, the thing I miss most about New England is the leaves in the fall. Not only the color, but what I miss most is the SMELL. A friend actually sends me a box of leaves each fall so I can smell them!

It won't be fall here in South Dakota for quite a while yet. It's still HOT!! Today it's only in the high 70's but it's supposed to go to 90 again later this week. The fire danger is still high. It's unusual for this time of year, but nothing we can do about it.

When fall DOES come it is beautiful. We don't get a lot of reds, mostly every shade of yellow you can think of, from deep gold to bright, almost florescent yellow. The Needles Highway and Spearfish Canyon are a lot like the Kankamangus Highway in New Hampshire - it's where all the leaf peepers go, but the traffic isn't nearly as bad.

I noticed a bit of red and yellow in the trees yesterday, when out for a drive. Of all the season transitions, this is both my most favorite and my least fvorite. It's the prettiest, best weather, and the SMELL! I'm so with you caselynn. I love walking in the fall so much. But it's also a transition to cold, my least favorite season. Blechh... Stupid CT snow. I know they get more snow in Maine, but at least in Maine they know how to plow.....

We've had leaves changing for quite awhile already. Our night lows are getting down to only 6-7 Celsius. And you think Maine and Conneticut winters are bad - they are nothing like ours here in Alberta! We have snow on the ground for a good six months and the temperatures are often -40C OR -40F for weeks on end. Our vehicles have square tires, even when in the garage, and our eyelashes freeze in 90 seconds. It is just not right! :angry: But I am enjoying Autumn while I can. We go to Croatia for a month soon - when we return it will be winter here. Double :angry: . Oh, well. At least our winters kill off many insects! :D Have to look at the bright side...

2 reasons CT winters are bad: because of the deplorable disorganization of the plowing system. And, I used to work in the industry of wrecked accident vehicles. Yeah, people in CT have NO IDEA HOW TO DRIVE!!!! You're taking your life in your hands to drive from late November to early April. Well, anytime really, but boy does it get worse in the weather...

So, it's really got nothing to do with the weather. You totally win there.

Bunnie, I WISH our roads here were plowed as well as they were in Connecticut! In my town they don't plow if there is less than four inches on the road, and if it falls on a weekend they don't plow at all! (They don't want to pay the overtime.) The state roads get plowed, but none of the city streets. And they don't use salt at all. That's good for the cars and the environment, but really bad when you get to the stop sign at the bottom af the hill and it is glare ice. They don't even drop some sand! (too expensive) I have many times, slid right through that stop at the end of my street and right into traffic. And I can't tell you how many times I have slid down the big hill on the way to my house, backward or sideways, while cars climbing up it steer around me.

I'm fortunate that we don't get much snow here. In the eight years I have lived here we have only had one major storm. It dropped two feet of snow on a Sunday, and by Tuesday it had all melted. But we do get two or three inches frequently and every year I swear I'm going to get studded snow tires. And every year something else comes up so I can't afford them.

Haha oh you guys are cracking me up! Plowing is a disaster everywhere I think, but I must admit, most people know how to drive in the snow here...after the first couple storms that is! I only like snow for the first couple storms, I guess until Christmas is over, then I'm ready for spring lol so I pack up and visit my brother in Tampa! It's a pretty decent winter getaway, if I may say so myself! As for the cold, we get -40F from time to time, most days are 0- -20 or so, theres always a flippin wind chill 😖last winter was rather warm, 20's a lot...heat wave!! Haha it usually lasts around 6 months,Nov - April, but I prefer less haha! As for right now, it's still 70ish during the day and 50's at night....winter is coming, ereekkkkkk!!!!!!

    • I agree with cyclinglady.   My daughter has had elevated ttg number for 3+ years now.   We are also a gluten free family.   My household went gluten free as soon as she was diagnosed.  My daughter's ttg has came down dramatically over the years, but we never quite hit the below range (We came SUPER close with one of our tests).   Our doctor is not concerned.   She even thinks that her ttg is perhaps falsely elevated.   My daughter is doing well, she is growing.   Taller than me now.  So, I give up worrying about that ttg number a while back.   (I was rather obsessed about it for a while myself.   We worked so hard on this diet, and deserve an excellent grade for it!!)
    • Myalgia is not  a diagnosis.  It is just a fancy word for sore muscles..
    • Hi to whomever reads this. I have had coeliac disease since 2003. Lately I have been very sore and have trouble breathing. My dr has just diagnosed me with a type of myalgia. Has anyone who has coeliacs been diagnosed with myalgia.  It is extremely sore around my shoulders down my arms. He has put me on prednisone for 2 weeks to see how that goes. Would be interested in anyone else’s comments. Many thanks.
    • My 14 year-old daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 10.   3 months later she was also diagnosed with celiac.   Her ttg was sky high (it seems your son's ttg is also sky high).   Our endo offered to formally diagnosed my daughter with celiac without an endoscopy, because she has never seen anyone with that high of a ttg number to not be celiac.   But we did not want to believe that my daughter was celiac too, and we scheduled an endoscopy.  She was formally diagnosed with celiac 2 weeks after the endoscopy. Type 1 and celiac are both auto-immune disease.   I was told that about 10% of type 1s have celiac, and that is why they have this standard procedure to screen for celiac in type 1s.   I think you should schedule an endoscopy as soon as possible before going to a gluten free diet.   I think it is better to be certain, rather than always be second guessing about this in the years to come.
    • .  Ingredients & information  from 10 years ago may have changed.  IN the US and Canada, modified food starch is almost never  made from wheat.  the laws of both countries require that, if it is made from wheat, that it be specified.  I have seen it , maybe two or three times.  It was labeled either modified wheat starch or modified starch ( wheat).       i just went to their web site site and The ingredients are "Yellow Corn Flour, Salt, Maltodextrin, Paprika, Spices, Modified Corn Starch, Sugar, Garlic Powder, Citric Acid, Autolyzed Yeast Extract, Caramel Color (sulfites)."   it states CORN starch
