Thanks for the neat article Shroomie. It sounds like CC is getting pretty creative with the rebound effort. Art projects and shipping container malls. Really sounds kind of fun. So now we know wher you hang ot on Friday nights, the Smash Palace?

"Smash Palace, selling boutique beers, is a mobile pub made from two buses, scaffolding and a shipping container."

Today, my yoga teacher was trying to explain something and used an anaolgy of 2 pieces of bread and the meat in the sandwich (don't ask, it didn't make that much sense to me either). She said sometimes someone says they don't eat meat. I piped up with "I don't eat bread!" She said think of a letttuce leaf sandwich. <_<

I tried :)

On a latex related note, I'm healing! Yay! Still have outlines that are visable, but its going away. I'm letting it clear up on its own instead of taking something for it. I can't tell ya how much i wanna take a backscratcher to it sometimes.

Underneath my kitchen windows I have a big bricked in planter with my herb garden contained therein. (I know, it's from my days of legal writing :P ) In that herb garden grow most of my herbs except parsley and cilantro. This includes rosemary, sage, and an enormous forest of dill waving its tall yellow flowers at me through the windows, blocking my view of the ocean, nagging me to come and whack it. (This is a task my late sister always performed when she came on a busman's holiday during Novembers in times of yore so I always left it for her.) So, of course, not this year :( :(

Hubs, the inveterate (hahaha!!) gardener in the family, says in all seriousness whilst perusing a recipe online that he was proposing to prepare: "What a pity we don't have any dill in the garden" Me: "Oh, if you look really, really hard, I think you might find some out there." Hubs: "What does dill look like, anyway??" Aha, the root of the problem!!! I shoulda trained him better, but he's doing really well on the chefing front :D as long as he can recognize what he's putting in :P

Poison oak, no -- we don't have none of that hereabouts (big reason for leaving CA - for both of us; couldn't handle the prednisone any more :unsure: ). And I wouldn't know what hemlock looks like, come to thinkofit. But I don't think we have that either - that is SO old world :D

Captured from the chemical allergies thread:

From my understanding, different rubbers are used for different things.

That's my understanding also, Wolfie. :D

Re-peep seems to be past the fragile stage. She follows Mom around instead of standing in one place crying, and she's successfully put herself to bed three nights in a row. Guess I can stop fussing now. :rolleyes:

In other news, after watching that 'Hoarders' show I've started trying to clear crap out of my house again.It's not that I have a lot, I just don't see the reason for keeping stuff I'm not using.

We'll see how long this phase lasts.. :ph34r: :ph34r: :ph34r:

Heard from the college boy last night. His chocolate milk kit Xmas gift was a big hit. They only have plain milk at his frat. I got him this type of bottle and Nesquik chocolate syrup.

been spotty trying to get in here the last couple days... maybe all is good now?

The old server was shut down 24 hours ago. The new one was up a few hours later, but since the IP address changed, your DNS cache might remember the old one for a while. There can be deeper issues. My ISP's default DNS server, preprogrammed into the modem, is out of date and no longer refreshed regularly. I had to tweak my router to use an explicit DNS server by IP address (4.2.2.2).

I figured that might be what you did since my work machine could reach you (dif ISP) and my home could not. Thats why did not bug anyone in the admin section :)

Our DOC (Dept. of Conservation) controls a lot of parkland, and thoughtfully 'maintains' shelter huts for trampers and backpackers to take cover from our sometimes wildly unpredictable and inclement weather (howling gales and major downpours in the last week at height of summer hols.) Someone with a sense of humor has been visiting the huts this summer, posting signs. Here's one:

Warning: children conceived in this hut are the property of the Department of Conservation.

:unsure:

And another:

We would have enough money to restore this hut if you would stop voting for that dork John Key!

:lol:

You guys seriously have to watch the video I shared on FBook, it's so funny it made me cry.

That's never happened before. Might have something to do with the flu, but hey....

It really is hysterical. I sent it to the theatre people - they're doing Les Mis this season

    • Yeah I've wondered a bit if I'm not getting all the other B vitamins from food alone and if they'd do me well. Magnesium content in the keto vitals isn't a lot. I try to get some more through food but I doubt it's optimal. I might have to look into that stuff. Interesting about the meats. Unfortunately I need the fat, especially if I'm gonna continue trying this keto thing for awhile, give it a chance to work. I did know about the difference in omega content, but since starting this diet I've been supplementing with fish oil to offset the omega 6's. Hope you'll be able to eat meat again soon, even if in small amounts. So much this. Every day I want to get up and do anything, and can't and it sucks. I want to climb the walls, get away from myself... Ugh, this takes too long, and I'm too impatient. Yeah, looks like I have to cook everything. I figured I'd at least be able to eat raw baby spinach. I need SOMETHING I can just grab and eat, but it gives me the same slightly itchy mouth that fruit gives me. I've been allergic to fruit forever... Don't have this problem with my steamed broccoli and cauliflower. I already cook everything else I eat. (and it's all organic, real food) So annoying to have to spend half my day cooking, not that I have anything else I can do. But what do I do when (or if) I get healthy again and am like, out somewhere? Damn I miss potato chips. I'll tweak a few things here and there and keep trying.
    • I see banana pudding in your future! ENJOY! I'm glad you came back to report what happened with the cookies.
    • Hey Josh! Corn is hard to digest even when one has a perfect gut. Imagine a damaged gut trying to cope with corn. Ditch the corn for a while. As far as soy goes, many of us, especially in the first 6 months to a year, have problems with soy. Some have problems with soy for years & years & others are able to have soy after their guts heal up. Some never have problems with soy at all. We are all individuals & react differently to different things.  I've never heard anyone having problems with sunflower or safflower oil in the 6 years I've been on this site. As far as lactose goes, again, I'm going to say we are all individuals...... I never had a problem with lactose, some do, some cut it out for a period of time & then later find it presents no problem for them and some can not tolerate it at all and some don't have any problem. A food log is a great tool for you to use to figure out what might be a problem.
    • Ok just to set the record straight, I tried one more cookie and then another and now half the package is gone so clearly these cookies are not to blame for the reaction I had that day. Still don't know what got me but it wasn't these!
    • Welcome, Josh! You have two choices: 1) go back on gluten and get tested.  This will help confirm if you have celiac disease or not.  Some 10% of celiacs are seronegative.  You should confirm if you had the complete celiac panel.  I personally am only positive on the DGP IgA, even on follow-up Testing.  Okay, if you have NCGI, the treatment is the same.  But with a celiac disease diagnosis, that puts you at risk for other autoimmune disorders or cancer (though rare).    You could have both IBD (Crohn’s or Ulcerative Colitis) and celiac disease or maybe Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis.  Knowing this, your doctors can be on the alert for future problems.  It can also help you adhere to a LIFELONG gluten free diet because you will have NO DOUBT.  The endoscopy also provides an initial baseline.  2) stay gluten free for life.  Learn all that you can about cross contamination, avoid eating out (it is like Russian Roulette).  Eat fewer processed foods.  Learn to read labels.  Keep a food and symptom diary to identify other food intolerances.  Read our Newbie 101 advice pinned at the top of the “Coping”section of the forum.  Healing can take months to YEARS.   I have a formal diagnosis (four years ago) and my only known symptom was anemia.  No GI issues.   My hubby went gluten-free 16 years ago per the poor advice of two medical doctors.  We both know odds are that he has celiac disease, but we can not afford for him to be sick for a three month gluten challenge.    He will tell you that I get way more support from medical, family and friends.  We were easily able to get our daughter tested because of my diagnosis.  Easy for me to get a bone scan confirming osteoporosis, etc.   Only you can decide what is best in your case.  I wish you well.
