I'm an American who admits I'm no expert in this but I have never seen any advantage of Brexit. I surely did see some and now, thanks to you, many more disadvantages. Our governments can really be a threat to our every day lives. Here's to the best for everyone involved!

Here is my Bray Cardi by Josie Mercier from the 2017 Winter Interweave Magazine. A present from a friend...thank you Linda G. I used Cascade 100% Peruvian Highland Wool in a wine colored Heather and added the "Narrow" cable pattern to the sleeves just to make them a little more interesting. As you can see, I had a little help.

Great cardi and so well done! The little white curious one is thinking of making it her/his own! Smart kitty.

I don't eat breakfeast so have my lunch at 12pm not normally a problem.

However I'm in and out of the back garden helping DH with the new fencing, so it's heavy manual work along with shredding the prunning from one of my apple trees.

We had to move a 8ft reinforced concrete fencing posting from the front driveway to the back of the house we decided to take it the shortest way through the neighbours garden we have permisssion. So off we go DH carrying one end and me the other. Boy is it heavy and halfway there I started to feel dizzy light headed and we have to put it down. I nearly fainted.

Thank you to our neighbour he came out and took over from me.

Note to self no heavy manual lifting just before lunch time in future.

Grab something small to eat early in the day so your blood sugar doesn't take a dive. You can then enjoy a hearty breakfast at 12:00. Strong woman! Yeah! We can do it.

I am knitting some scarfs and the instructions don’t say anything about length.
What is the average length are scarfs? Oh, which is right? Scarfs or scarves

The length depends on the person who will be wearing the scarf. Some like a short one that just crosses in front on the chest. Others like the ones that have a bit more length than that but nothing extreme. The "style" right now in our neck of the woods is a very long scarf, as long as the person is tall or, at least five feet in length. For yourself, any length you like. For someone else, best to ask their preference. Whoever thought this would all become so technical!!!!

NEWS FLASH: Trump did receive thanks for what his administration did regarding McCain's funeral:

Quote from this article:

Contrary to what President Trump said this week, he was thanked for his involvement with Sen. John McCain's funeral in Washington last year.

Rick Davis, McCain’s former campaign manager, thanked the Trump administration on behalf of the McCain family in August during a press conference.

“The combined efforts of the Trump administration, the White House, Secretary [Jim] Mattis, and the Department of Defense especially, and the Military District of Washington are very experienced in these issues related to the logistics of a funeral of this magnitude. And we really thank them for coming together very quickly and pulling together all the federal resources," Davis said.

On a side note - the Washington Examiner is rated as a right biased news source.

Sugar is doing great. She was kind of still in a daze when we picker her up. It didn't take her long to realize she was home. She has not bothered her tummy at all. But we had her dew claws removed also, we are having a time with her wanting to chew them. She will not let me get very far from her.

Awwww! Dear little Sugar is back in your loving care and so glad to be home.

Just saw the sweetest thing: A dog who'd had tummy surgery of some sort was wearing a "onesie" (with a gap at the back for elimination) rather than a cone. It prevented the dog from fussing with the stitches and was probably more comfortable.

What a great idea!

When I placed my order I said, Regular amount of chromosomes, please! That'€™s what everyone else got and what I wanted too. They called me shortly after my order was in production and said 'Great news, we went ahead and upgraded you to extra chromosomes for free! You'€™ll receive the extra chromosomes with your completed order in 9 months. What?! I was mad! All the other orders I had seen displayed via perfect Instagram posts did NOT have extra chromosomes. Well I decided that receiving my order with extra chromosomes was better than not receiving an order at all, so I settled in to wait for this surprise upgrade to arrive. I have now had my order for two months and am writing this review to let others know the upgrade to extra chromosomes is amazing!! If offered, definitely take it! I posted some photos below of the finished product and you can see the extra chromosome is so worth it - it is extra cute, extra special, and extra-ordinary! So much extra joy. Would purchase again for sure! Ÿ’™#sweetgwendolyn #t21 #theluckyfew #upsyndrome #extrachromosome #nothingdownaboutit

First and foremost, President Trump is a Patriot and has no use for traitors. . McCain was a traitor to his country and doesn't deserve respect. He didn't earn the title of "songbird" for nothing. His father was an admiral in the Navy and paid to keep him alive. I have no use for songbird. He was not a hero, contrary to popular belief.

Wow! Now THIS is FAKE news!

Well I can only hope that your prayers are answered sooner rather than later. Long before he got into politics I did not like Trump much. My opinion has not changed. My issue is his open dislike for a man who served his country his entire life. I have also realized that I have been spelling the Senator's name wrong for which I apologize. I heard it said yesterday that analysts are concerned that his own party are not standing up to him but truthfully I don't understand how it all works in the US including the voting system. It certainly is interesting watching it all from north or the border.

You are seeing a life-long journey of corruption that has infiltrated our democracy. Many of us do not fully understand our voting system and wish that every vote counted. We have what is called an electoral system. Very easy to be infiltrated by corrupt people. Now with Russia interfering in our elections, we are in a very dangerous place.

Just hang up, been there, my x racked up bill in the thousands, after our divorce, they really try to scare you. I worked for a collection agency years ago, I know the tactics they use. Saying they will put liens on your property, all kinds of BS they can't do. It's all to scare you.

If, and don't, give them any money you are acknowledging that you are responsible, then they got ya.

Just a little advice,


Excellent advice.

If they call again, get the name of the company and where they are located. Let them know that you are writing it down. Then just tell them that you and your husband are not responsible for her bills, and that any further calls from them are harassment and you will report them to the state attorney general's office. Don't listen to another word. Don't argue with them.Then just hang up.

Nooo! Don't speak with them at all. Hang up. The scammers know how to use your words against you. Ignore.

Hey y'all, Got a phone call from the bill collection agency about my husbands EX wife. She still has outstanding bills that she had after their divorce/ created after their divorce. Which was 30 years ago. Any guidance on this would be appreciated.

Very suspicious. Don't say a word. Hang up. Sounds like a scam. If not, it isn't your problem anyway. Silence is more than golden is situations like this.
