On a related note, our clement bayarea weather takes a 5 day break tomorrow.

...His Highness stated rather chalantly. .. .... :rolleyes:

In honoUr of the admirable efforts & all-around eptness of The Ripper & cohorts in the production of Woody Allen's Don't Drink The Water [ohbummeritwontshowimg]http://www.facebook....elevant_count=1

YAY! Thanks for the plug, Ptaoughmnn! Jeez, I wish the City of Ottawa were on here. . .. I'm getting a bit phreaked out about ticket sales....we've sold enough to all shows to have broken even, but I wake up every night covered in sweat, thinking of all the kids standing behind those big, velvet curtains, and they slowly part...... the lights come up, and they find themselves looking out at a crowd of thirty people..... .. . :( . .. . :unsure: .....

If the Psillllyville Royal Dictionary did, in fact, get left behind in the mad retreat to Psillyville 2, methinks it could be recreated. If we each contribute one word per day, and put someone (not me, she says quickly) in charge of the compilation thereof, should be done in no time. We already have two words today, ept and clement in nonalphabetical order. I will post my contribution shortly.

...Must think about this....

When you're on stage the lights are in your eyes and you really can't see past the first two rows. Just put yourself in charge of seating so's you can set the stage for a great audience look.

This is so true. It is amazing how little you can see from the stage. Often you can not even hear the audience that well. Really helps if your the kind that is nervous in front of crowds.

Well, that kid's saving grace will be if he ends up a six-foot two, 250-pound linebacker on the school football team. Hashtag will work, there... . . . ..but if he's a scrawny little mathS nerd...... .. ....oh, dear... .. . . ... <_< ...

Then they should have named her hashbrown. :P

We had a neighbor that named her daughter Precious. When her daughter was a teen, she went to court and had it changed to something like Michelle or Karen.

Coffee will cost 10 per cent more for men than for women at Wellington's Victoria University Law School campus this morning.

My stepdaughter went to school with a kid whose last name was Case, so of course his mother named him Justin. But the bad part was, every time she'd take him somewhere she would announce in a VERY loud voice, "Just in case you were wondering, Justin Case is here!"

The kid is grown up now. I wonder if he even speaks to his mother anymore.

    • Cheetah, We all have to make our own health decisions based on our individual circumstances.  There is not any “one size fits all” approach.  ☹️In your daughter’s case, she was asymptomatic.  I also would find it hard to believe that she had celiac disease despite confirmed biopsies and antibodies tests.  I get the denial.  I just had anemia that was disguised by a genetic anemia.  I was shocked at the suggestion of celiac disease.  My hubby had been gluten free for 12 and I knew exactly what the treatment meant — gluten free for life.  A total game changer.   Because we have bought our health insurance for over 20 years, we have lived through the times that I was uninsurable due to my Hashimoto’s, Rosacea and toe nail fungus (yes, that is right).    I never went without, but I could not freely jump from plan  to plan.  My premiums were higher than my hubby’s.  So, we worry that health insurance could change and I would be uninsurable again.  (Did I mention that our annual premium is $24,000?) However, the genetic test can be invaluable but is mostly used to help rule out celiac disease.  There are other genes associated, but they have not been studied well.   “So far, scientists have identified over a dozen possible non-H.L.A. genes that may be associated with celiac disease, but whether these genes actually play a role remains to be seen.”  (Sheila Crowe, now head of the American GI Association).   https://consults.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/01/13/genetic-testing-for-celiac-disease/ The antibodies test, in conjunction with the biopsies is the best means of diagnosing celiac disease to date.  The blood test is the least reliable as there are false positives (rare).    It is hard to dispute villi damage.  Too bad your Aunt did not get a biopsy, but understandably, an endoscopy can be costly if you lack insurance and there are many other reasons, so many are forced to forgo this procedure.   https://www.ueg.eu/education/latest-news/article/article/mistakes-in-coeliac-disease-diagnosis-and-how-to-avoid-them/   It is unfortunate that we must weight the risks and benefits of everything.    
    • Kirsty, in my experience, being ‘gluten light’ is not helpful. I think it doesn’t make any sense tbh – it does more harm than good. The withdrawal period is very different from being gluten-free long term. The withdrawal symptoms can be extremely unpleasant but they are temporary! Let’s say 4-6 weeks. I personally was feeling like a drug addict or an alcoholic in rehab at the time. I was having all kinds of withdrawal issues – one of them was extreme hunger and unusual stomach cramps caused by hunger. I had to eat approx. every 2 hours – otherwise I would get very dizzy and lightheaded. It felt as if my body was finally getting the types of foods it needed (= gluten free) and wanted these ‘right’ foods constantly.   The fact that my body viewed gluten as a drug and was addicted to it was a proof in itself for me that I am gluten intolerant. Let’s say I wouldn’t eat any potatoes for 2 or 3 weeks – nothing would happen. Often the types of food we love the most, crave and can’t live without are the very types of food we are intolerant and addicted to. If you’re not a diabetic, the hypoglycemia could resolve completely on the gluten-free diet.   My advice would be read about gluten withdrawal and don’t let it discourage you.
    • I know this thread is eight years old, but I'm bringing it back because ingredients have (very likely) changed since 2009. Jimmy Dean breakfast bowls still don't list gluten, wheat, etc. But they did give my mom and I terrible stomachaches. I know the scientific method calls for repeat experiments but we don't really feel like it. However, I will say we usually stick to a strict gluten-free diet (only eat if it states gluten-free or if there's no way it contains gluten; fruit, veggies, etc) So it's extremely unlikely it was anything else. These were just a risk we took because there's so few explicitly gluten-free quick meals- we both work long-hour jobs and have school so quick meals are very helpful. TL;DR: They are very likely NOT gluten-free. Just because it doesn't say gluten/wheat in the ingredients doesn't mean it's not present. Call me paranoid, but I feel it's a good rule.
    • Victoria. Yes I got tested for Addison’s but passed. The first test I barely passed. I have had adrenal issues for a while. Adrenal fatigue, but not advanced. I always had a lot of food intolerances. But gluten was fine. Histamine and salicylates where a problem though. Mast cell activation syndrome. In hindsight possibly caused by Lyme and my genetic makeup. Then I tried psych meds and they put me on valium to counteract startup side effects. I actually had a paradoxical reaction, not side effects. And after waiting that out I could not stop valium at once. I went to a very heavy withdrawal process for a year. That is when my mast cell actvation syndrome gt way worse and I became gluten intolerant. Had hardly any foods left. And because the withdrawal of gluten was so heavy, I could not go through with it fully. I hoped it would just go away after withdrawal was over. But I still have this limited diet and am gluten intolerant 2,5 years afer withdrawal. But the withdrawal process really hurt my adrenals and my nervous system. I can’t even tolerate most supplements. I guess the valium withdrawal and damage it did is also the reason that stopping gluten gives such bad withdrawal.
    • Read this about the benefits of having a celiac disease diagnosis.  It is written for doctors, but it is very useful.   https://www.ueg.eu/education/latest-news/article/article/mistakes-in-coeliac-disease-diagnosis-and-how-to-avoid-them/
