We were able to fix some problems later in the day. We had about 5-6 people on at once. It was really fun.

This has really been bugging me. Why do they cut back on the hot water in the WINTER?


Because a lot of people squander hot water- and it is the major cost in one's electricity bill- we have problems when people are trying to run heaters and cook breakfast, or the evening meal- so they certainly used to 'ripple control' the hot water cylinders- not sure if they still do it. I guess it is better than having a total power cut!

I can't imagine the work that went into this blanket - to say the least it was stunning. Bentley also got several other blankets which I will have lexi take pictures of - they were lovely.

sending mountains of positive soothing energy to stepson - what a lot of damage but thank goodness no one was hurt.

Good afternoon KTPers! I loved skyping and chatting with as many as were able to connect and come into the bathroom to visit. When we were done skyping and Gwenie came to shut down and pack up her computer, it felt like a very satisfying but exhilarating day!
Alas my KTP high fix was soon short lived. I got news about my youngest step-son (he and his family live in the next town over that really got hit hard with the tornado storm). He and I get along very well together. The tornado went through his yard, blew out all the windows in his home, ripped the siding all off, tore out a tree and smashed it down on his roof. As far as I know, there was no one hurt, just really scared s...less. Please keep them in prayers. I guess I was lucky in that it was only a few hours of power outage that really affected my town. I gotta go, will perhaps check in later. Zoe :D

Pole-eedra No, just the name of one of the characters from my favorite books, The Belgraid by David Eddings. :)


Thanks Poledra, interesting choice of name. I looked the author and book up on the web and I rather think I will be visiting the library when I go into town tomorrow. Thanks

oh wow, zoe, i am sorry. thankful they were not hurt. we have had rain now for a couple days. they are calling for us to have chances through tues.
after church we went to eat, then on to wm to get groceries. as we were getting close to the check out rows, we spied baskets of half off stuff and one was full of yarns, we, bj myself and girlfriend, worked for well over 30 min. to untangle some bulky yarn and i mean it all was in a narley mess. but untangle it we did, the csm at wm at that particular time was a past co worker and she said any of that stuff we untangled that had no tags tell them ann said it was 50c each. what a bargain. i got one great looking grey varigated i am going to do my nephew a slouch hat with and got several other types of various colors, was able to purchase several bundles of each type. for what ever i decide on. then all the other yarn in the buggy was half off its reg. price, so i got another bag full for $2. each. its not bulky, shows hats, scarfs, i had two stuffed full wm sacks and one was $5 for the whole thing and the other was under $30. talk about walking into a bargain. i never hit it like this. yeah me. no bragging , just the facts :lol:
i wish someone would figure out a way to label who is who, i know marianne, gwenie, sam, nana, puplover, rookie, not sure of the other faces or sides of faces :mrgreen:
bj was looking at them with me, and ask where this all was taking place and said it would be at least a 7 hr trip for us. never say never. just i think later in the season would be better. i don't sweat silently 8-) i have so loved seeing and hearing what all you have done, i just can imagine the nattering (as sam calls it) you know when a bunch of like minded folks get together what a noise it can be. gwennie, i sure hope your can get some relief for your back, and marianne please see someone about that finger, you remember my bj nearly lost his finger and the er dr told us he could very well loose the whole hand and arm from the cat bite, so maybe the dog bite is cleaner. love you all and be safe traveling please.

Wow! What an awesome weekend meeting so many lovely people. Puplover looks awesome for just finishing chemo. I think she had more energy than many of us. Everything and everyone was just wonderful. Sam's family is just awesome. I stopped by this morning to thank Gary and Heidi for their hospitality. I don't think they are going to need to do much cooking for a few days as some of us did not want to transport our leftovers home with us. I took a scenic route home. Got lost once, but still headed in the right direction so I picked up the highway I wanted further south than I anticipated. It was lovely drive home and so much more refreshing than taking all the expressways. I could of been home sooner, but I chose to take my time and savor my memories and enjoy the beautiful countryside. Thanks to Shirley and Pontuf for the lovely gifts you sent to us. Gwen and Marianne we could never say enough thanks to you for making this an awesome weekend. Sam did not get to speak a whole lot with all of us talkative women. So glad he was able to join us for our impromptu gathering on Friday evening. I am pleased to say that I went with a vehicle loaded with things and came back much lighter. I did get some beautiful things to bring home and treasure and was able to leave behind yarns and books that I just did not want to hold onto any longer. The yarn shop was filled with many treasures, but it did get a bit warm in there with all of us crowding around. It was fun to try the cubiks. I bought a set of them as I do not like my current set of interchangeables. It was a pleasure to see some of you on skype. Wishing Julie a very happy birthday today. We are praying for things to get resolved for you so that you and Fale can be together once again. It will be fun to read posts in the future and feel the different accents with those comments. I think Marianne and Gwen have worn out their ears trying to listen to northerners talking so much faster than the south is accustomed to.
Once again, THANKS! to everyone. Praying that everyone has safe travels home and looking forward to seeing everyone next year.

Me, too - and without even tasting it!! Pup Lover bought some and I decided to get a bottle for my sister for this next weekend - she misses being able to grow rhubarb since she lives in FL -- I'll have some rhubarb/raspberry muffins and rhubarb wine for her to enjoy. I didn't buy the ice wine, but did purchase both a white and red that I liked. I think we increased the Defiance GDP by a few notches!

I just went over to today's KP and clicked on the first topic in Chit Chat, which was about smoking and Obamacare, it said. What it turned out to be was a real knock-down drag-out involving some people I don't know, and peppered with comments lifted from somewhere else. I don't know where. It started with the first remark, so it wasn't a 'quote reply'. Goodness what venom! So I left that behind, and cast around for something more friendly. After a bit I went back to the main page and it was gone. There were forty odd pages of it, it sure took somebody a long time to see it and put it in the trash.

However we have a member named Gozo who lives in Gozo, and maybe you guys all know her but I don't. She posted some nice pictures and I can recommend that post. Just gorgeous.

Would you please find out what kind of camera? We're in the market for a new one - would make a good Christmas gift for DH.


I asked my sister about her camera. It's a NIKON D3100 and comes with 2 detachable lenses. Hope you find it and are as satisfied with it as she is.
