      I know a couple people with type 1 diabetes, including a teenager, and they go out of their way to avoid gluten. (The kids mother is an excellent baker, it must drive him nuts) I think it has something to do with the gluten metabolizing into sugars and upsetting their insulin balance.

      Remember these posts?

      As a half-Betazoid, Troi was capable of extra-sensory empathy, but was incapable of reading aliens with brain structures dissimilar to Humans and other Betazoids, such as the Breen and the Ferengi. Like most Betazoids, Troi had telepathic abilities; due to her half-Human heritage, however, the range of her telepathic abilities were limited compared to full-blooded Betazoids, and could usually only read the thoughts of other Betazoids, most notably her mother. Troi's empathic skills made her an important asset to the Enterprise and often came in handy when dealing with hostile races. Since she could usually tell if others were lying, she repeatedly proved herself invaluable in many suspenseful situations. (TNG: "Encounter at Farpoint", "Ménage à Troi", "The Loss"; VOY: "Inside Man")

    The United States is looking at new classified intelligence indicating the Syrian government may not fully declare its chemical weapons stockpile, CNN has learned. That would mean Syria will still have a secret cache of chemical weapons after the agreed-upon destruction of its declared weapons is carried out.

    The intelligence is not definitive, but "there are various threads of information that would shake our confidence," one U.S. official said. "They have done things recently that suggest Syria is not ready to get rid of all their chemical weapons."

    [Cr@p, here we go again. No evidence of WMD's, but we're going to invade you anyway. Sheesh. Just how stupid do they think the American public is?]

    So after a 3 week remodel of my store, so far my phone is not working, my receipt printer/check reader is not working and my commercial station is still missing shelves and base decks. Yay remodel!

      Sounds like some withholding of retainage payments will be in order...

        That sounds like an excellent idea. Maybe strike for higher wages, 'cause I JUST CAN'T WORK UNDER THESE CONDITIONS! Uhmm.....yeah, rant over. Have a good day everyone:)

        Brother man, you know it. trust me, wasn't my decision. We're talking major corporate bean counters at work here. Definitely no "boots on the ground" with this remodel. "The CAD program says it fits, so it fits". Wow.

          I love when we get to do stuff like that. I have a lengthy commute some days and books on my iPhone make it bearable. Suggestions from people are key to me. Even if they're not my thing, I get to learn something about what makes them tick.

          some entertaining comments over there, but didn't see Kat's!? Anywho, my first book reading memory was Charlott'es Web, then I think I read all of the Nancy Drew books, then on to Agatha Christie...I wonder if a love of reading is genetic? My grandmother and mother were/are avid readers....

    All right you hammer heads, wake it up. I just spent a weekend celebrating a friends 70th b-day, playing music, golf and watching football drinking his favorite: shots of tequila followed by a shot of pickle juice with a slice of jalapeno. I bet right now I got more mojo than the whole lot of youse guys. Those crazys from Colorado call it a San Juan Whore (that name is not going to pass through the machine very nicely but that's what it is called in CO).

    It's MMONDDAY! There are 5 great days before the weekend! Carpe' deim and all that stuff!
