a glutton for gluten

May 3, 2003
So, Mo's brother Dan is over with a friend...and the friend is gluten intolerant. Man, that's a tough one, just because it's so subtle relative to some other food allergies, tough to know what foods are bad and which ones are ok. Or at least it would be for me.

Prayer of the Moment
Lord, take me where you want me to go;
Let me meet who you want me to meet;
Tell me what you want me to say
And keep me out of your way.
--Father Mychal Judge was a victim at WTC, who rushed down after the plane hit, and whose death certificate is 00001. Some folks would like to see him canonized as a saint. I don't have much of an opinion on that, but I do like his prayer.

Quote and News Bite of the Moment
"Declare war on the cold front!"
--I was kind of amused by the story of a Taiwanese company using Hitler to market its German-made heaters. I guess nothing says "German" to a Taiwanese person quite like Adolf...(To be fair, their grasp of European history might be about as weak as my grasp of Asian.)
