Sorry I have been absent,
the "dog" has been biting at my rosebush (read the post below to understand) and sniped it completely to the ground,
in other words, my newly revised website that I spent hours on,
I am not a webmaster -
thankfully, living near Microsoft, I have friends who are,
and after a few (okay a lot of emails and calls), my website is back up.
Now, looking forward to 2008.
I have been collecting information on upcoming Celiac Conferences.
I have heard they are wonderful places to connect with others with similar diet restrictions, extremely educational and you get to sample a lot of gluten free food.
Here is what I have found so far.
Please pass along any others you know of:

GIG Annual Education Conference Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas
From someone on ListServ: You absolutely can't go wrong in attending the GIG National Education Conference in the Dallas/Fort Worth, TX area. The lineup of speakers is outstanding with almost all of the major researchers, doctors, cookbook authors in regards to celiac disease/gluten intolerance and the GF diet, and reps from the American Celiac Disease Alliance on top of that. What more could you ask for? We're also planning wonderful food and fun. Come meet GF friends from all over the U.S. Register at www.gluten.net

Children’s Hospital Celiac Conference in Columbus, Ohio with Dr. Fasano a Professor of Pediatrics and Director, Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition at the University Of Maryland School Of Medicine in Baltimore. He is Medical Director for the Center for Celiac Research at the University.
It would be a great excuse to go to Amsterdam,
but I am leaning towards Victoria BC because it is close, beautiful and has lots of great GF dining options and
Dallas/TX because I have heard this is a great conference and I have lots of family in Texas.
