For the past few years, I've felt like the sick kid who sat at the window watching all the other kids play outside. (I was sick and spent a lot of time going to the doctors. They are still trying to find out what all may be wrong, but at least I feel good since I no longer eat gluten and have healed from some of the effects.) I also spent a lot of time visiting with you fine folks and reading your very interesting posts.

Since I'm feeling good now and God has blessed me with a car so I have transportation during the day, I'm able to get out and work some. I've been working through a temp agency, just doing the odd job for them here and there and playing with my hobbies. Now, a new thing has started.

I've been invited to rent a space in a new shop. I did and it opened yesterday. Now I get to see if the hobbies can become a business! I've named it "diane's dabblings" and I'm having a blast so far. We (us folks in this new shop) are in the best location in town for all things antique, vintage and art. This is the playground that I've been watching and wishing I could play on, too. And I got invited! :>}

When a new thing is added into the day, something has to go. I've cut back on my computer time, but some things are going to have to be cut more for me to really get going strong on my dabblings. My space in the shop needs a lot of work, so while I'm doing that, I'll be missing y'all. Oh, boy, will I miss y'all! But, when I can, I'll be back! Take care, fine folks! See ya' in a few weeks. :>}

When our three sons were growing up we homeschooled them. I don’t think I’ll ever forget the day that our middle son, who was six years old at the time, opened his math workbook and saw subtraction problems. He said, “What is this?” I said something like,…

The thing is, nobody is giving appropriate credit. What use do we have of a license that everybody is breaking? I've never seen anybody explaining what they changed in the creative, nor did i hear about any case where the author of the work has bitched about that particular part of the license rule. I find all my CC photos on Flickr, I always link to the photo source and I always notify the author. I did this about a couple of dozen of times and not once did the author complain. I say, if someone wants to know what changes i made to the original, they should just look at the original and at my stuff and see for themselves. Or, if the work ia text based, they can run a Diff on both and see for themselves.

There is some explanation in this interview that will answer the questions about why a person has symptoms when the test for gluten antibodies is negative. This is really important to know, whether it's dealing with a child or an adult.
Want to find out more about gluten and the brain?

Listen again to Dr. O'Bryan interviewed by Dr. Lo on the brain effects of gluten, the gut/brain connection, and how to be sharp as a tack!

In the Gluten Summit, Dr. Amen, Dr. Campbell-McBride, Dr. Perlmutter, Dr. Lipski and Dr. Hadjivassiliou especially focus on the ways gluten can impact the brain. If you didn't catch all the interviews the first time around, the entire Gluten Summit is still available for download here -

That's what I thought, +Howard Moore,  when my doctor told me to come off of gluten to see if it improved digestive problems I was having. In fact, I told him, "I thought all this gluten free stuff was just a fad." 

For those who want a bit of updated info: (GS =gluten sensitivity)
"GS, which this review will focus on primarily, is a condition in which symptoms are triggered by gluten ingestion, in the absence of celiac-specific antibodies and of classical celiac villous atrophy, with variable Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) status and variable presence of first generation anti-gliadin antibodies (AGA)."

Usually, when I'm on Huffington Post my eyes are glancing back and forth from the article I'm reading to the headlines on the sidebar. Not this time! Not at all. This is fabulous!

Basic Information
Apps with Google+ Sign-in
Married 36 years to the same patient man. Mom of three grown sons. Have four grandkids, two boys and two girls.

I'm enjoying Google+ and I've learned ways to make it easier for those who are considering adding me, and also how to make it a better experience for myself. I am interested in many things, but for my purposes on G+, I have to narrow it down. So, here's what I'm focusing on:

Cooking, especially Gluten Free
Crafts/Card Making

What will get you uncircled:
Disrespect for anyone's religious beliefs
Constant griping

I hope that things I post are interesting to you and help you have a better day.
