Cassie, great to have you. Like Mariane said, you could never be an outsider. Can I have a kitten? Pretty please?
Thanks also for the prayer updates. My online experience is a bit limited these days, so I appreciate hearing what's going on in the forums I don't get to.
Deb, so nice to have you here! You know, rice cakes are not bad with nut butter and cinnamon, or with a little jam, or with cream cheese (since rice cakes have so few calories, you can get away with that even if you're counting them)... Oh, now I see Don said the something similar. Mariane, I don't know how you wash pots with rice cakes, seeing as they get all mushy and gooey when mixed with water... but maybe you use them dry; that could be a good strategy.
Teresa, good to have you here.
The games you played with cousins sound like the ones I played with my sisters.
Linda, I so agree that the Southerners are fun to read and this thread is officially not worthless.
If you get macchiatto at Starbuccs you need to spell it with lots of letters, but I'm not sure if I did it quite right.
Pam, I'm so glad you got a different job.
Laurie, preheated bed is great. Mom and I picked out an electric blanket for Amy so she can do that, too.
BettyDee, say hi to your parrot. Or you can say I said "j;ei' m,ejh4le .mgpy95 hy;r./' ,3.gku", since that's a little more like the messages the parrot pecks.
LOL, Deb, you must be a math person... we tend to just use 2.2 pounds per kilo and call that close enough.
Mom had to weigh in kilos every morning when she was on dialysis, to decide what strength of solution to use that day, and the rest of us used her scale now and then so we got used to converting from kilos to pounds.
Dub, good to see you back once in a while when you can make it. Don't work *too* hard, okay?
I don't know what to vote on which thread to be the more active one; I just want to hang with Verna and Mariane and George and Tim and Linda and Dub and BettyDee and Don and Deb and Pam and Laurie and Joanney and Cassie and I don't even think I can type all the names, but you all know who you are and that I appreciate you each.
