  1. I kept trying to get onto the Blog Carnival page yesterday to submit my article but I kept getting a message that it's down temporarily. Anyone else run into this trouble? So frustrating!

  2. Yes! I got the same message. I still haven't been able to post that today's carnival is up and running.

  3. Oh, good! I was starting to wonder if it was due to my using a new mac. I recently discovered I can no longer log onto my bank account with the mac and Safari; I thought it was becoming a new Safari phenomenon!

    Well, let this be a lesson to me--next time I'll submit my article days in advance! In the meantime, please do stop by and visit Food Allergy Buzz (!

  4. The carnival looks great! Thanks for hosting.

    Blog Carnival has been down all day. Don't know what's the matter, but hopefully they'll fix it soon.

  5. Hello Sarah,

    I found your site through the wikipedia link to

    I just wanted to say I will be becoming a regular visitor and thank you so much for this site.

    My boyfriend is allergic to whey and I have been trying to convert our lifestyle to include a lot of healthy options and vegetarian and vegan type foods to counter the effects.

    Your site is a real inspiration and I can tell I'm going to get a lot of great ideas and support from somebody else having to go through the same food allergy obstacles!

    :) Christina

  6. Welcome, Christina! And thank you so much.

  7. Hi Sarah. Thanks for posting the link to my article on the difference between food allergy and intolerance over at You're doing a great job here!
