Your very welcome! I think it's important to show appreciation of another's art:) And yes, bad acid problems is a symptom, but there are many more. For a good description of quite a few, read "My Story" located on the left side of my blog at Travsgoneglutenfree. Some of its a big graphic, since it documents my journey to becoming diagnosed with Celiac Disease, however, it's a good educational piece.

Travis, I always thought it has something to do with my stomach ulcer. I am going to read Your Story through thoroughly.
Alexander, Regina, Thank you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. :-))
Try to avoid taking off too much flesh as the pith has a very bitter taste and that could damage the soup and the worst of all, your appetite.
