Thanks! The first two were good, one was actually awesome. I will miss this seminar - I had a wonderful group. Have been receiving grateful and heartfelt emails for the past couple of days, which is pretty moving. Yeah, I am a softie.

Personally, I think there should be no grades.

Hee Hee. Have to blow my own horn here a little bit :P (well, nobody does it for me)..... I was a very late-blooming student, a faded flower from days gone by, and one of those you talked about who fretted over grades. I blew away my high school years, and did all my education as an evening student. And then at the end I took a bunch of personal interest classes at community college (interior design, floral arrangement, weaving, stuff like that), one of which was blueprint reading (we were getting ready to build our house). We had a great female instructor who assigned an essay exam, and I would guess she didn't get a great deal of articulate written material in response :rolleyes: She raved about my essay and asked me if I had ever thought of writing stories, "novels?" :lol::lol: Uh, no, that's a little different from what I write, I'm afraid. At any rate, it apparently made her day (evening?) so I got the A that I always stressed over. For a failed high school student it's amazing how important those A's can be :D

'shroom, are you in MY class? :D

I have chosen to teach adult undergraduates at a big uni. They actually have a fabulous program, because these students are in class with teenage freshmen, except for the mandatory class I teach (makes sense: it's mandatory, but some of them work, they need to give them reserved spots). Those people are so engaged - they know why they're here. And they're challenging, which I love.

One of my best students comes from a community college. And I like the idea of giving "back" good higher education to people who could not afford it in the past. So, yeah, adult students rock. B)

I have a friend like that. He calls himself a "Professional Student". Also knew a guy working on his 4th PHD. He got them in things that don't translate to jobs like carribean history. It was his hobby.

My heart goes out to them :(

It is horrible. It makes no sense at all.

Thought I should rip myself away from constant thoughts of wondrous food to focus on something else. I need a breather - my in-laws are coming for the weekend - not the happiest thought. :( But at least we'll have amazing eats! Oops - there I go again. ^_^

It is currently snowing AGAIN (we have about 2.5 feet of snow) but it has warmed up to a balmy -14C. Poor DH has to do the driveway for about the 20th time this winter (and that is not exaggerating). Wish I could do it but cannot physically manage. Sylvia? Irish? WHERE ARE YOU???

Peter, so sorry to read about Bob. However, you have a great outlook and attitude! :)

I'm as good as there. Works out well for me this weekend - my husband can take care of his family while I'm at your house! :lol: Not only that but I LOVE rain. We have two seasons here - winter and construction. So, we don't get many rainy days. Just stupid old I mean lovely snow.

Yes - I LOVE eggs. How many can I expect to have each day? ^_^ We get out eggs from a local farmer and I would not have it any other way. If I could, I would raise a few chickens but alas - I live in the suburbs where that sort of thing isn't allowed. I grew up on a farm so was used to cows, chickens, sheep, pigs, horses, ducks, geese...

Woot! You can have a rainbow of eggs! We have olive green, green, blue, pink, beige, light brown, dark brown, brown with speckles, some are chocolate brown, some ivory. No white, but I'm sure you'll get over it. :)

I just can't imagine. Why children? Why a k-4 school?

Those teachers are heros.

Wow. I just read about this, too. This is absolutely horrific.

    • Awww Jhern...I'm sorry you are feeling so bad.  (((((Hugs))))) Please ask your Dr for a full thyroid panel to get a complete picture.  That includes TSH, free T4, free T3, TPOAb and TgAb...the last 2 are antibodies.  With a TSH that high, I would feel terrible...tired and achy for sure.  Most people, including me, feel best with their TSH around 1.  Some labs show an outdated range of .5-4.5.  I would bet that you would benefit from some thyroid medication. The weight gain could be from healing and absorbing nutrients too. I hope you get some answers and start feeling better soon!
    • Yes, elevated intra-epithelial lymphocytosis is a possible indication of Celiac disease. That’s what my biopsy said. “Moderate to marked villous blunting with moderate to marked intra-epithelial lymphocytosis and marked chronic inflammation of lamina propia….characteristic for untreated celiac…” What we are finding out about these medicines is incredible. I knew that it could damage the kidneys, and can cause fluid retention. It’s good you posted here. Yes, usually the order is indeed blood tests first then biopsy, but oh well. My own thinking about autoimmunity is starting to evolve more and more to incorporate the ideas of Dr Terry Wahls, namely that there is little real difference between the various chronic diseases, that at bottom, it all comes down to cellular health. "Cells need certain nutrients in order to do their work, otherwise they begin to malfunction, even die." “When you look at chronic disease on a cellular and molecular level, we see it’s all the same disease – too much oxidative stress, inflammation, and nutrient deficiencies, toxins that are present. We see it in mental health, neurodegeneration, autoimmunity. It’s remarkably similar. Treat at the cellular level.” Dr Terry Wahls. Plumbago  
    • Magnesium and Calcium intake down combination with high sodium would lead to a form of edema where your body retains water in the joints and muscles. Try drinking more green tea, vitamin C supplements, bioflavoids, and adding a bit of lemon juice (I use the true lemon powder) to foods and beverages. http://www.progressivehealth.com/5-vitamins-to-reduce-fluid-retention.htm
          OH for low sodium seasoning look up Big Axe Spices "http://bigaxespice.com/index.html"on amazon HUGE flavor no sodium. Or if you need more selection Spicely Organics. I did find a salt free habanero hot sauce I use in cooking for a few customers of mine that is salt free >.< Might help sweat it off lol http://shop.brobrubru.com/Original-African-Hot-Pepper-Sauce-Very-Hot-000019.htm   
    • Did they check for candida? And what about your other levels? Keep a eye on your food diary, start rotating foods a bit more, see if you got a new intolerance. They seem to random come and go with me like REALLY random...last month was lettuce which is fine when I brought it back yesterday.  Anyway other thoughts, make sure your getting a bit of everything, I sometimes slip and do not get enough vitamin A, Vitamin K, lycopene, selenium, or zinc when I rotate nuts, seeds, and veggies sometimes reaching a combination that is lacking one mineral or vitamin.   I really do find those "Super Foods" that you need to up a bit for me it is oddly nutritional yeast, kale, cocoa nibs, coconut, pumpkin seeds seem to really boost how I feel.   Sometime a probiotic and enzymes are a huge help.

      Might try a low carb (no fruit, grains, sugars, starchy veggies) for a week or two and There is this Candidia FX stuff on sale on Amazon that worked wonders for mine.
    • I can definately identify with this. I half-laughingly refer to myself as an 'elder orphan'.   I can't afford anything like a secret santa but would love the opportunity to exchange holiday cards with others here.  It is comforting in a way to realize that I am not the only person who is isolated but kind of sad to know that there are others in the same boat. When I talk to folks with large close extened families who endlessly complain about them I just want to slap them sometimes.
