Guys, i did it again, this time with 20minutes to spare :blink: and i had to email it to the professor because our submission system was being weird (the professor already knew about it and emailed us to just email the assigment if we ran into the bug).

Now onto other homework...

I'm happy fer ya, Ricky Russell--but I don't know what this means :ph34r::lol: I'm not very cool :P

I alerted the two employees, one of whom ran out to the parking lot and got the license number of the car before they were driven away. The police were called, and I gave a statement of what I saw. Got to go up in the office with the huge fake windows that overlook the store and watch the security footage.

You are SUPER cool!!! You're catchin shoplifters left and right!!

They are ski resorts in central Oregon. I LURVE central Oregon!!

Omg. . .. . . ..Tallahega (?) Nights was on late a couple of night ago. . . . .DH and I roared through the whole thing, as per usual. It gets phunnier every time I see it.... :lol::lol:

Here you go, now you all have something to do with your evenings when the ponies are in the stable eating hay.

Alek's Controllable Christmas Lights for Celiac Disease

Use the three christmas webcams for a live view of over 20,000 christmas lights and also CONTROL them - heck, you can even inflate (or deflate) the giant Elmo, Frosty, Santa, and Homer Simpson - D'OH! All three webcams are online from Thanksgiving to Jan 1st between 1700 to 2200 MST (GMT-7) which is when you can turn stuff on & off to entertain the neighbors. Plus send "Instant Messages via Webcam" for all to see. HO HO HO! ;-)

Yes, celiac3270 and I both live in Boston now, but he's finishing up his first semester of senior year at Harvard, so he's been working a lot so we haven't had time to hang out, but still keep in touch and will see each other soon! Yes I graduated, degree in chemistry (I don't really know how I did it), I'm taking some time off enjoying life before applying to medical and PHD schools for graduate work, so hopefully starting one of those in the next few years!

Not to mention working on your awesome books. I'm making out my Xmas list and one teen (old beyond her years) is getting a set of volumes 1-3 (paper version). Hopefully when she's done her sister will be interested & able (the girl I tutor) - don't worry Vince, she'll get her own copies.

    • I was browsing on QVC this morning and found they have a bread machine on sale.  It has a gluten free setting. Remember someone asking about them not too long ago so thought I would post a link to the item. Be sure to read the questions and answers at the bottom of the ad.  It is on sale for about $100 http://www.qvc.com/Breadman-2lb-Multi-Function-Stainless-Steel-Breadmaker.product.K44909.html  
    • Well, as a celiac the gluten causes your own body to flare with antibodies and mistakenly attack your body most people the intestines. (I also have it attack my entire nervous system and brain) Your antibodies can stay flared for weeks to a month or so with just a crumb, so cheating is not a option. The damage to your intestines will cause malabsorption for one, second the damage leads to food intolerance issues random allergies, the more damage and longer you go the narrower your list of foods you body can put up with will normally get, These can go away as you heal by the way in most cases, they will also come and go. I had the lettuce intolerance crop up for a month or two. I still have a whole list of NO foods you can check my profile to keep it simple. This disease if untreated can lead to other autoimmune disease, cancer, lymphoma, and we had a case were one member ignored the diet and had to get a emergency colostomy and a section of their intestines removed. Side thoughts, my body works best with fresh cooked veggies to the point of being mushy, I also find taking digestive enzymes makes it so I do not vomit. I take 2-3x times the dose on the enzymes and it works great. (Jarrow Vegetarian Enzymes Plus, and Papaya Super Enzymes, I take extra bromine when using vegan protein powder shakes.) As you heal there will be some wonderful options open up in the gluten free processed foods department, you will probably lose some of those veggie food intolerance issues after a year or so normally. I have lost a few myself and enjoy some I used to not be able to eat. I will give you the newbie 101 list and a list of potential food alternatives that might give you some hope to browse through.
      https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/

        I also post some great recipes in the recipe section.
    • Solid advice. Wish that more people would consider that this might be necessary for some and not entirely paranoid. Could very well be airborne, but most likely culprit is something you're eating. That said, baking, construction/open drywall, farms/animal food and bulk/flour aisles in grocery stores are legitimate worries. I was recently having frustrating problems with random but minor flare-ups, and have eliminated almost all packaged food (even gluten-free) for a bit. It has helped tremendously. I hope that perhaps my sensitivity levels will calm down in a few years, but not being itchy and scabby is worth almost any cumbersome restriction. I think for me the problem has largely been to do with the use of oats in many dedicated factories (even gluten-free oats make me very, very sick). I came to this when lodging a complaint/notifying a company that I'd had an issue with one of their GFCO certified products. I figured that mistakes could happen, and could not imagine anything else I'd eaten that day could be a culprit (had only eaten veggies/rice/meat) so I contacted them to report it. Their response made me quite sure that the lot my food came from was fine from a legal/GFCO gluten-free perspective, but revealed that they make all their gluten-free products on the same line - which include granolas, oat flour etc. When I investigated it a bit more, I realized that many of the gluten-free products that I suspected were causing me problems (but had no real basis for why) were all made by companies that also make lots of gluten-free oat products. Previously, I had only avoided gluten-free products that contained oats as an explicit ingredient, and had never considered that the residues from gluten-free oats could be problematic. Unfortunately, now that gluten-free oats have been legalized in Canada, it is very difficult to find companies that do not use them in some capacity, which is why I axed most of the processed gluten-free stuff. Presumably, because the oats are considered gluten-free, there is no reason to clean the line or employ any allergen food safety practices from the company's perspective. While this may not be a concern outside of those who are super sensitive, it might worth considering if you are still having problems or have a known issue with oats. At the very least, avoiding most processed gluten-free foods (breads/flours/pastas/baked goods) seems to have helped me a lot, even if minor contamination with oats is not the true culprit. I would vouch for mostly sticking with rice, dry beans, root veggies and fresh corn (from the cob) as complex carbohydrate sources for a bit, even though it's a bit inconvenient.   
    • So I previously went to Buffalo Wild Wings and they gave me the gluten-free menu. I asked the waitress if anything is mixed into the fryers somehow with the ultimate nachos, since I read up that they don't switch out fryers for celiac customers, which is fine. She claimed there's no cross contamination happening there, as nothing goes in the fryers. I went back today to find out by the manager that they apparently deep-fry their corn tortilla chips from scratch, so I cancelled my order. But after rethinking, I asked if I could order everything except for the tortilla chips. She came back and told me there's yeast in one of the sauces for the nachos. Yeast is a toss-up, but it seemed to me like they were trying to get me to not order. Either BWW's is lying about their gluten-free menu, or the management was doing everything in their power to prevent me from eating there in order to not have a potential lawsuit. Has anyone felt this way when going to restaurants?
    • Hi everyone! I'm obviously new to the forums, but I'm also new to the idea of celiac/gluten free/etc.  Lemme give you the Cliff Notes version of my journey: 1992: I'm diagnosed with CFS/ME. It sucks and I'm tired and sick all the time. 2014: I'm still tired and sick all the time, so I decide to become a vegetarian. Maybe that'll help, right? I began getting deathly ill when I ate. Vomiting and diarrhea, everything I eat seems to be a problem.  I go to a doctor who runs a million tests. Nothing turns up. In among those tests is a celiac panel which has this result: no antibody detected and no serological evidence of celiac disease. No cause is ever found. I continue to suffer. Later in 2014: I notice that my stomach issues are triggered every time I eat a raw vegetable. I can eat bread or pasta no problem. Fake chicken? Great. Have a salad? I'm dying. This is a problem, as I'm a vegetarian. I nix the fresh veggies and continue to live my life. 2015: I'm diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I realize that the problem with vegetables is worse than I thought. I can no longer eat cooked spinach, can't have lettuce on my sandwich, and stealing a single slice of cucumber set my stomach on edge for days. I'm becoming hypersensitive to veggies in food and protecting myself from their evil influence; my stomach thanks me. 2017: After a relative peaceful period, the stomach issues are back, worse. So I go to a new doctor (I've moved) and he recommends a colonoscopy and EGD (no labs). This was done yesterday. The full results will of course have to wait for the biopsies to be examined, but apparently there is scalloping "through the entire duodenum".  Doc told my partner that he believes I have celiac and discharged me with orders to go gluten free. Now I'm sitting here alternately considering drinking alone in the dark and throwing things--I guess I'm wavering between the stages of depression and anger on my trip through grief for my lost favorite foods. But here's where the confusion comes in...everything I'm seeing says that I should give up bread and eat more veggies, but veggies make me sick. Does anyone else have this reaction to vegetables? Meanwhile I'm thinking back to the labs done in 2014 and wondering if its possible to have a negative test and still be positive for celiac? Also, what actually happens if you DON'T go gluten free?
