We got away with losing a fence panel. My it was windy though.

Thoughts with those flooded and without electricity, and those suspected washed into sea.

Not a perfect day here, bye Lou x

I had a friend who said his wife reduced her allergies by taking co-enzyme Q-10 for a month.  Can't say I know why that would help, but that's what he said.

 

Can someone help me out and try a Google search for "Do a barrel roll"?  I am having a little trouble with my browser today.

Well sorta followed :

 

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/eggless-eggnog/

 

But added cinnamon and used vanilla extract instead of rum extract and used 1 less cup of milk - next time might add whipping cream in place of some of the milk to make it thicker. It was much thiner then "real" eggnog - but taste was pretty close.

Thank you for the recipe!  My son loves egg nog, but we never have eggs in the house because of my daughter.

Gee, it is quiet here in Sillyville these days.

Today is December 11, which is a most significant date indeed for Canadians. Today is the 82nd anniversary of what is, in my opinion, the most significant event in Canadian political history. It actually took place in the UK, and affected more than just Canada.
 

Okay, quick history of Canada. Major events only.

Seventeenth century: The French colonize New France.

September 13, 1759: The British defeat the French on the Plains of Abraham.

1791: The former New France is divided into predominately French Lower Canada and predominately English Upper Canada.

July 1, 1867: Four colonies reorganize into a Dominion named Canada. The four provinces are Ontario (Upper Canada), Quebec (Lower Canada), New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. The Dominion is part of the British Empire, and is subject to British Rule from the Westminster Parliament. :)

July 1 is celebrated as a national holiday with the historically accurate name "Dominion Day," the anniversary of the Dominion of Canada's formation. :)

December 11, 1931: The Statute of Westminster makes several Dominions, including Canada, Legislatively independent. The ultimate authority is now the Canadian Parliament in Ottawa. Canada is independent. We are no longer part of the Empire. :) :) :)

April 7, 1982: A new Constitution is proclaimed, including a Charter of Rights. Ultimate authority moves a few blocks west from Parliament Hill to the Supreme Court of Canada, an unelected body. :(

October 27, 1982: July 1 is renamed to the meaningless "Canada Day." :(

Thanks for this, Oracle POeter! Yes, I've always preferred the meaningful name "Dominion Day" to the new, "modern" "Canada Day"....What in hell does that mean? ... <_<

 

In the spirit of Canuck-tivity...

    • Ask them for a copy of your results and find a good gastroenterologist in your area. Go there and give them the results. That's what I did. I didn't even bother with my GP. I got the results from the health fair and called a GI in Denver. My insurance didn't require a referral. My GI was the one who put me on the track to being accurately diagnosed. And regardless, you need to be hooked up with a good GI if you've got Celiac so that they can follow you. 
    • Also, I had my bones checked a few months back (In January), and they were awesome. I'm still shocked at how well my body did with Celiac. I hear about all of my friends on here who had crazy horrible symptoms and I never did. I'm grateful. Because those ugly things would come eventually.
    • I work out regularly and I would say NO to working out if you have been glutened or are really tired.  You know what happens to people who work out when they are really fatigued?  They suffer injuries.  I was not well enough to work out until I had been gluten free for 4 years but I am much older than you so I doubt it will take 4 years for you.  Drop the work-outs for now and just go for walks outside when you feel better. The fatigue has to be better before you try to do gym work.  I know you didn't want to hear that but I don't want you to end up injured, on top of everything else. Take care of yourself for now and let yourself heal! 
    • They say you should not work out if your sick or dealing with such issues. I on the other hand do the opposite I will work out even if running a fever, I feel lost if I do not, and the endorphins help me feel fullfilled and relaxed......I have a few other issues as well >.> sitting still causes me to have mini panic attacks. I actually have to be on a stationary bike while on the computer lol. I swear it originates from being stuck in bed for days in the past unable to move, I fear being stuck unable to move my body like it used to sometimes. Got to admit the scariest thing in life is when your own body does not do what you want it to and it turns on you. As for steps, etc....I personally do about 24-30k steps a day or 11-14miles, Most of it pacing lol, anyway everyone is different so I can not tell you what to do just my own exp. Make sure you eat plenty, drink plenty of water and tea, and supplement anything your body might need. I eat constantly throughout the day to keep me going and enough protein and fats that it seems like a body building diet. Be careful and do not push yourself too hard, if you start feeling dizzy, tired or odd lay down for 15-20mins for a power nap. I do this twice a day at least just out of habit.
    • Ok, two things: 1. I never had symptoms either. I'm 29 and I've always been healthy. Never had bad blood work. Never had any issues. I had two healthy pregnancies and never in a million bazillion years thought I had celiac. Last September I got a weird stomach bug and it just wouldn't get better. After about 3 weeks I started wondering what the heck was going on. So I went to the health fair and got tested for Celiac, because my mother has 3 siblings who have it. My numbers came back high. I had an endoscopy in November to confirm. My toddler has it too. My damage was pretty significant, but normal for someone with Celiac. So, while that weird stomach bug may have been the beginning of my symptoms (I still don't know if had anything to do with my Celiac), I had Celiac for a while before I found out. There's no way that I could have developed the damage I had in 3 weeks. So I think it's totally possible to be a silent Celiac. I have always wondered how I'd know if I were glutened. All I've heard is that after not eating gluten for a long time I'll know. That's always made me a little nervous.  2. You doctors gave you really crappy advice. They should have told you that your numbers were high, to remain on a normal diet, and make an appointment with a GI specialist. That way you could have had an endoscopy and a biopsy to confirm your diagnosis. Telling you to stop eating gluten was really stupid of them. Because after 9 months you're probably not going to show much damage in an endoscopy. That said, I think it's likely you have Celiac. The tests they run are very sensitive. In fact, I asked my GI what he'd recommend if my endo came back normal, and he said, you wouldn't have numbers like this if you weren't reacting to gluten, so I'd still want you to be on a gluten free diet.  To be honest, I don't feel much different either. I'm still tired like I used to me. My anxiety hasn't gone away. My stomach seems much better. I never realized it wasn't stellar until I stopped eating gluten. Now I'm not bloated, I rarely have intestinal cramping, I don't really have gas pains. That weird bug I had went away.  So I was kinda in your situation. I didn't have signs. I was shocked when I got the test back. Shocked. I never had the GI issues, the rashes, etc. I grew up with Celiac and never thought I had it. My parents don't have it. But it's a super common AI disorder. My biopsy confirmed it for me, so I never second guessed it. And I had a family history to give me more proof that I could have it.  If you don't mind the thought of eating gluten again you could always start eating it again for a few months so that you can do an endoscopy and a biopsy later. A lot of people do these gluten challenges so that they can actually be TOTALLY tested. Like I said, I think you probably have it. Those Celiac tests are pretty sensitive. My doctors were sure I had it. The rates of false positives are pretty low. And other AI disorders can raise them, but it's not likely.  Being gluten free sucks. It sucks bad at first. Eating out has gone out the window for me. The inconvenience sucks. I can't take part in pot lucks or work functions. I have to eat first or bring my own food. It sucks. But, I'm lucky that if I have an AI issue I can control it with my diet and feel ok as long as I don't eat gluten. And I've learned to adapt. I guess I didn't have a choice. And then there are the folks who know they have Celiac and don't care, and they eat gluten anyway. And that's their choice, but they're poisoning their bodies. To each their own. I know it sucks. I get it. I was shocked too. But chances are, you'd have developed symptoms eventually. You may have had this for a short time or a long time. There's really no way to know. But sometimes our bodies compensate really well. My iron levels were always good. I never in a million years suspected I had this. Never.
