More great weather, and the first barbecue of the season is grilling as I type. Corn on the cob and hamburgers with Udi's gluten-free buns.  :)

My 5 week old poults were going at it hard.  I tried separating them, tried detention, nothing would deter them so I resolved to listen to the squeals and let them work it out.  But I hadn't figured on Mama.

 

One of the poults was raised by my silkie, so she listened to about 5 minutes of squealing and had had enough.  She marched her tiny little butt over there and gave those miscreants what for!

 

Dunno what she said, but we had peace for most of the afternoon.  Late in the day another row started and lasted about 45 seconds.  She charged the two like a little bull and they split up immediately yelling "We weren't doing anything!"

 

The other chickens, of course, just circled up chanting "Fight! Fight! Fight!"   Rotten girls.

Jess's bird children sound just like human children.  We let them try to work it out, but when we get tired of listening to the fighting, we have to separate them!

 

Victor/Vincent - I don't know much about anime/computer characters but I do think the women are supposed to have a lot less clothing and a lot bigger chest!  :o

 

Just watching Dr Travis on Rachael Ray.  He said we should be checking a guy's ring finger.  If the ring finger is longer than the pointer......he is considered "well endowed" (that was the scientific medical term he used).

I had a lovely visit from 2 birds clinging to our family room outdoor screen. They were adorable! I felt like they were welcoming me as I've been watching the seasons change from my couch. I plan on that changing soon!  :) Gotta get Superman to BBQ. He has online homework for the new job before his start date.

If your pics have less clothes, you will need to spray tan them? Really, that man had a few too many clothes, also. All he really needs is a strategically placed sash.

I just wanted to wish all of my dear sweet psillies (and their family members) a healthy and Happy Mother's Day!!! May you be surrounded by everyone you love most dearly.

 

We're celebrating today and having dinner with Tony at Ruth Cris's Steakhouse in Providence. Superman bought me a lovely orchid plant (I received orchids on my first mother's day). I am one blessed lady. Wishing the same blessings to you all.

 

Love,  :wub:  :wub:  :wub:

Loey

 

P.S. Tony bought me a gorgeous necklace and it was the warmest visit with him I remember in a long time. I thinks he's coming back to us a little  :D  :D

Man... check it... well worth the six or 7 mins this will take!

We’ve all gotten used to those ubiquitous pump-topping TV screens that scream inane chatter at us while we wait for our hilariously overpriced gas to top up. But what if one of them started talking directly at you? Such is the nature of this "Tonight Show" prank, in which a talking head on a gas pump screen charmingly bantered with Will...

Hello my dearest Psillies.

 

Well my wonderful Mother's Day dinner cross-contaminated me. I now have wrap-around pain :(  and other than going back to eating only brown rice I've forgotten what measures I can take to help alleviate the pain. In the past I always had my pain killers and have NO desire to ever go down that path again. I've been using a heating pad (either on my back, abdomen, or between my legs). The good news is that it's dwarfing my ladyparts issue (still there but I think it's improving). The dinner was worth the suffering but my boys had too many gluten laden appetizers and three bread plates at the table so I'm not surprised I was glutened. I also splurged and had a champagne cocktail. I don't think they were too careful when they wrapped my leftovers. Oy Vey!  I just finished a 5 day course of Keflex and am taking 100 billion mg of probiotic detox 3xdy.

 

Any tips are greatly appreciated. I went back to the main Forum page and did some searching but I don't have much patience and you, dear psillies, know everything.

 

Love (and thanks),

Loey

 

P.S. I hope I didn't offend anyone on my email list with the Sandy Hook letter.

Loey- Charcoal! Worked like magic for me last time I got glutened. And I used

digestive enzymes for the next week to help with getting my other foods absorbed.

And Yogi Peach Detox tea, which happens to be quite tasty as well. Watch out with

the charcoal- it should be taken away from any other supplement or food.

Hi Lo:). Hope yer feelin better. If I get cc'd, I am more comfortable if I keep a little starchy food in my stomach. Hot tea, lots of rest. Beyond that, it just has to pass.

No worries from me, I'm pretty hard to offend ;)

Hi Sillies!!

I've never tried the charcoal, but a gastro once suggested it to me. Glad it helps, Bun:)

:'( she certainly was, Pads. I haven't been around and now I want to go and read and savor her amazing words all over this forum....

I am stunned and also saddened to know that I am here too late to communicate with her....the card i purchased was never sent, as is my very bad habit. What a gal she was.....did anyone ever get the chance to meet her, when she came to the states?

Shroomie :(

I, too am bad about cards, but fortunately I was on top of it this time. I was thinking about searching the thread for Shroomie-isms to post but just don't have the energy right now. Sounds like a job for Jya-nut, but haven't seen her around for some time.

    • Is your concern the social aspects of eating on the job, or not always feeling well enough to get out the door? I'm in health care, and just happened to be in home care when I was diagnosed.  It actually works well, as I make my own hours, and can reschedule visits as need be. I would think you could complete your MBA easily, maybe part time if necessary.  It's not clear what your career path might be ....counseling?   Industrial psych? Research? Once you are established (and you can do that part time if need be, to start), you will have more options for flexed or reduced hours.  If the social aspects of eating are an issue, you can always excuse yourself at meals, drive to a pleasant location, and eat in your car. Or go for a walk and find a place to eat. For work luncheons,  I just have a beverage or pick up a piece of fruit, so I give the appearance of participating. 
    • Can you tolerate nut milks? I find macadamia milk the gentlest on my stomach. The only brand I've seen here in the US is Milkadamia, and it comes sweetened or not, and fortified with some vitamins. I think this brand is from Australia. Or you could make your own. As for time, it can take awhile, and that seems to be more the norm. A recent new dairy intolerance that peaked May 3 has made me sicker than celiac ever did. Almost 3 months later and I am just starting to get better and my fatigue is improving. I had the usual ups and downs, inadvertent exposures, and trial and error.  I had only mild symptoms (comparitively speaking) at my celiac diagnosis 4 years ago, yet it took 6 months to a year for them to fully resolve after going gluten-free. It's hard to be patient when your GI tract is off, as it makes you feel ill all over.  Just keep doing the right things, introduce new foods one at a time. I would also suggest more protein for weight issues ... can you tolerate tuna? Tuna and some version of mayo? Salmon, vitamin D supplements, and bone broth seemed to have helped me recently with gut healing. Wishing you well...  
    • Thank you for your response! Again I am pretty sure my doctor did all these checks however I will definitely check to make sure and take the necessary actions if not. It just feels like a never ending run of doctor appointments and blood tests at the moment and the whole thing really did come as a surprise to me. I think I have really tried to eat healthy as I believe its so important especially being diagnosed with this disease. I feel as though its not just about eliminating gluten but also having a really healthy and balanced lifestyle. Also, I find that at the moment it is not just gluten that upsets my stomach, fruit for some reason also does. Unfortunately, people do not realize this and dismiss it which can also be annoying on top of the diagnosis. I will definitely be avoiding processed foods and have been for the last few months. Thank you for your response and I will listen to my body as you have said, it is without doubt very important.
    • Is aroy d milk gluten free?I couldnt find an information on its package,it says it doesn't have any additives.It's full fat and sold in a bpa free carton box.Anyone tried it?
    • Thank you so much for your reply, it has really helped! Your feedback on the grieving side has really comforted me to know I am not the only one and that it will get better. I am not always upset and sometimes I feel optimistic but occasionally it really just does get overwhelming especially at the moment if I am eating in a restaurant for the first few times or out with friends and have to be concerned with what I can eat and not just concerned with having fun.  In relation to my diet I have seen a dietitian and got very positive feedback. I love cooking so this has been helpful with changing diet. But, I just find that I run out of recipes and am sometimes eating the same thing on repeat which is agitating. Unfortunately, I currently cannot eat lots of fruit as my stomach responds poorly to it so my dietitian has said to eat only one or two servings a day and build up. I definitely am going to research more recipes and snacks over the next month and really try to get my diet sorted so I can feel more relaxed and better. Thank you again your response it has helped massively just to know there are people out there who understand! Thank you.
