Dreamed about swarm of insects eating people (like piranhas) and only way to keep them away was short hair and bangs. lol Jan 17, 2020

        My mother determined that for me a long time ago when she dropped me on the floor of the maternity ward!
        UPDATE: OH Crap! Sorry Pats, just read your post about your strange gathering. I didn't mean to sound insensitive. I was just trying to be comical. SORRY!

        Bedlamite. I never responded to this comment. I don't remember reading the second part. I actually thought you were serious about being dropped on the hospital floor and probably wasn't sure what to say. But I'm the type of person who prefers to laugh at any and all situations and enjoy comical. :)

      Was once told no more moose stuff without a purpose. Found moose cookie cutter, moose stapler, moose cups, moose dishes, moose everything.

        Try doing a Google image search for bad or ugly knitwear. I had to to get the image I needed and I was nearly in tears (of laughter) by the time I finished. Some of them were so bad I couldn't use them! I ended up with a groovy mustard sweater from a 70s pattern.

        Here everything turns to mud after a big rain. No fun. I use a car to "wander". In your case the authorities in your area are telling people to stay inside for the time being because travel is too dangerous.

        this only allows so many characters and I accidently omitted wandering 'out', and yes, I meant with my car. lol The roads are fine - just so many tree and driveway is long and uphill and remains icy for a long times once the snow starts to melt away. And it gets real muddy when it does finally melt.

        He doesn't shed, he just matts so bad and so fast. When I rescued him he was bald because they had to shave him down to the skin from the matts. He also was skin and bones.

        I had to replace my monitor last winter. Being into photography, I bought a 27" wide screen. WOW! Like you I have gone back to videos from my DVD collection. Reruns on a computer.

        This is a 29" wide screen, which I like because it's not too high and still at eye level, which I need. The HD is fantastic. I just decided, as much time as I spend on the computer - photo editing, jigsaw puzzles, and here - it would be worth the investment and I was sooo right.

        This past summer I went with my sons and his family out west and he had a go pro attached to the rear view mirror so I can re-take that trip over and over. :) And it looks like I'm there - again.

      My monitor is going out and it's hard to be on the computer right now - so my time here is limited until I get my new monitor.

        Is there a connector that will allow you to connect it to your TV to tide you over? Most modern tellies work as monitors too - my desktop PC is connected to our TV and is our main entertainment system.

        My Mom didn't teach my brother how to cook, he taught himself. He's not half bad as a cook, but he cooks lots of 'heavy' meals.

        Teaching a child even the most basic of culinary skills is a huge contribution to their future well being. They may choose to learn later, but if they leave the nest already equipped, they've a headstart. Good on you Pats.

        Yep, during the Victorian era it was actually somewhat common to put thick stockings on table legs, so the legs wouldn't be "naked" and thus improper.
