Time to Welcome another month, friends.

It was good to see so many posts today, or yesterday, depending when you take a peek at this :shake:

Waiting for it to get light so can let the horses out.Cats are still sleeping,when they wake up they jump on the window sill.lol
Rained last few days,glad I got my grass cut Sat.
Lainey,did you have a good day at the zoo?

Norfolk Mermaid 10-01-2013 06:12 AM

THANKS everyone for the BDay wishes.
Had a wonderful TWO Days!
Sunday: early dinner at Golden Corral then a short walk to Starbucks for Pumpkin Frappes.
Monday: 10: am off to the ZOO for a beautiful cool, sunny day at the ZOO. Everyone (animals) were sleeping away- well, most all- the rest were feeding themselves and moving very slowly here and there. Every time I have gone to the Zoo I wanted to buy a "rain stick" in the gift shop but never did... took money just for that purpose: NO rain sticks! Amazon here I come- once I make up my mind I refuse to be denied. Very light munchies as we were saving ourselves for the fancy 456 Seafood Restaurant. Home to change and Ila showed up with a HUGE bouquet of flowers from Sam's (I never saw them that big there) . The food was the best I have ever eaten anywhere- two fab bloody marys. Sweet, sweet cards and gifts. Oh YES! I am blessed.
More later- still waking up here. Want to try to down load a pic. from yesterday. Lots more but she sent this one only from her I phone.

hmmm, one more try.
here goes.
try later when more awake.

SuzieQ 10-01-2013 06:39 AM

Hello, I'm new on LCF, not so new to the low carb concept, but I'm starting again.

mykneesareback 10-01-2013 09:00 AM

Hello Suzie, never think you are the only one starting AGAIN, that's just the way it is. Some do and some don't, but we all like to chit chat on this thread. Please join our daily menu and exercise threads, posted for the week on Saturday nights, just post what you do, and don't worry if it isn't the way it's "supposed" to be :) Welcome to we "oldies but goodies" here!

Lainey, I'm so glad you had a wonderful time to celebrate your Birthday, and some photos and good memories from all of it. Good thing it wasn't too hot to go to the Zoo, that makes it more comfortable.

Hi Gladys, good thing you mowed is right!! We had a bit more of rain last night, stuff was dripping. Had some lovely birds this morning, orange and grey, I need to get a Texas bird book for myself. These were migrating, I think. Had a whole flock of Waxwings, even sitting on the glass ceiling of the sun room.

Wishing everyone well, we got up late, 8 am, so now trying to catch up, need my shower...............

Good morning all...posted a rant last night which I guess didn't make it past the moderators. Oh well, such is life. Just said it's not a good thing to have all your eggs in one basket. All my income is from the federal gumment, so now I'm waiting for the furschlugener congress people to come to agreement. All my former workmates are considered essential, so they are still hard at work hoping the same thing. I think I heard that SS checks will still be going out, so that's something, at least.

Happy all our birthday gals had a good one and hope good things are still coming your way.

Welcome SuzieQ, hope you stick around long enough for us to get to know you...we're an eclectic group hiere with lots of different interests and woe, so hope you find something to make you happy, too.

So we will see what the day brings, hope it's good stuff for all y'all.

Doug_H 10-01-2013 10:28 AM

Mary, you posted yesterday about Dungeness crab being your favorite. Our favorite too.
We used to catch our own for years when living in Washington. We got spoiled getting it fresh and cooking our own. Can't stand the stuff in the grocery and have only been to a couple Indian Casinos in the Northwest that offered good Dungeness.
During our trip to the coast last summer Dungeness was on the menu in a few places, but the price was $$$$.

Not much else new here.


Mssarge 10-01-2013 11:00 AM

Hey Doug, I see you made it through the lingering summer heat, now we have the autumn heat with which to contend...how's the gardening going? Is it cool enough you can set your winter garden? I feel for those who have not had the pleasure of eating the dungeness crabs; they don't know what they're missing. Unfortunately once my DH caught a couple off the jetty in Seal Beach which I tried to cook at home...I say unfortunately because the stench drove us out of the house. Don't know if that was normal or those crabs had been eating something, but since I've always made sure I bought them from the steamer at the wharf...and enjoyed the smell of them cooking.

Shalbrihil 10-01-2013 11:30 AM

Hi there!

Dh just called to let me know he bought a wine barrel half. The guy had just arrived to open up when he got there. Cut one in half right there on the spot. Now I know what I need to do when he gets home. My little starters are going to be so happy in there new home. Hee hee! (I hate spell check. If your not careful it puts in a letter that you don't want).

Mary you mentioned Cloud one other time and I still don't know just how that works. I have no idea how one can store there kindle books on it. Is it at the Amazon site or on your personal computer. ??? I'm a dummy when it comes to computers. I love my Mac but it still is hard getting use to after having Microsoft for so long.

Well I best be getting ready for my barrel to arrive. Will be checking back with you all later. Be nice to yourselves. :)

Mssarge 10-01-2013 12:01 PM

Hey Sharon, glad you got your barrel and your kidlings will be in their new home. Hext year they should be spectacular.

Believe me, I know nothing about the clouds in computer land but it seems as tho' every place that sells you stuff has a cloud land, too. Don't know who came up with the term, but who cares, right? It seems that when you buy stuff at Amazon, I-tunes, wherever, it winds up in their never-never land called a cloud and you can access it on whatever device you may be using...I guess they could have called it a library or a store or whatever.

So when I get something for my Kindle, Amazon stores it in their cloud. Most of my stuff I send to the computer app so I can check it out to see if I want to use it or just send to my library. I can then request it on the Kindle, the android phone or tablet, or either of my computers...I have both the laptop and a desktop...both very old. I have a huge library of books I've bought for the Kindle over the three years I've had it and there's no way it could all be stored on it. But I am amazed at how many books I do have on it.

I've heard the apple stuff is much more user friendly but I've always used a pc so don't know anything about 'em. I started using computers in my work way back when, so have always learned just what I need to do the job.

Hope this explanation helps...I guess bottom line, Cloud is just the name of most companies' storage site.

mykneesareback 10-01-2013 12:18 PM

Sharon, I wonder if the barrel has that wine smell in it? lol When we were driving back from Oregon, years ago, we were out in the boonies of Trinity county, and spotted a sign at a huge lumber yard, they had barrels for $9, so we pulled in and bought 2, stuffed them into the car with our luggage.......BOY, did that car smell, and we smelled like the barrels too, after awhile, ha ha ha, I'll never forget that! You should have a good time planting, do you fill the bottom with other soil and add the bagged soil on the top half?

I don't know what cloud is, either, lol. Our son keeps photos in that, but it's hard to get into it with my computer. I don't think I'd ever use it, no time to read even books you hold in your hands, let alone keep hundreds stashed away. Businesses must use the cloud to keep their information in, I'm assuming. They show it on police shows. And I can't fathom how they do it when they just wave in the air, and a computer screen is "there", and they wave at stuff and it moves around, That, I can't get, my brain is too dim for it. Mary, you are smarter at this stuff than I'll ever be.

Doug_H 10-01-2013 12:20 PM

Mary, we have one of those gas cookers with a big pot that we used outside, even on the dock when overnight out in the islands.

Jo has decided no garden this fall, "To much PIA", decided to plant flowers in the raised garden area for now.

Gotta go get new tires on the truck this afternoon, pick up new glasses sometime this week, and fix a backyard flower bed soaker today. We have very hard water and it tends to clog these little lines.
Doris, we have learned loads about automatic soaker systems over the past couple years. Never had one before either. Got 4 separate systems on timers. I now keep a bucket in the garage just for soaker stuff.


Mssarge 10-01-2013 01:08 PM

Doug, Guess you're much smarter than I with the outdoor cooker. Yeah, very familiar with the hard water of the desert...once we had a very small water heater and had to go in every months to clean out the sludge...yccch!

Doris, not smarter...just used it more over the years and as I've said, I usually learned only what I needed to know about the program I was using...fortunately, I've always had techie folks around that would get me out of any holes I dug for myself.

I guess my lost rant was for nothing as all my deposits made it to the bank today. Don't know if I'll take back what I said, tho', as it seems impossible to me that people are not doing the job for which they were hired/elected.

Anyway, I am now a happy camper with money in the bank with which to pay my bills that came due today...sigh! Hope you have good surprises in store today,too.

Shalbrihil 10-01-2013 01:59 PM

Doris the barrel was fresh cut and the purple stain was there. Don brought it back here in the back of our truck and boy did smell. HA! We've now filled it with bagged soil and put the pots where I want to plant. That's just so they get used to the new space. It will be more sun.

mykneesareback 10-01-2013 05:46 PM

That's good, Sharon, I spoke to my husband about this awhile ago, and he is now pondering we he would place some barrels in the back yard, we do have room for some...............lol. We are going to a plant sale at the Master Gardeners of Collin county this Saturday morning, so he is ready to buy stuff.
The ads here for Fall plants are odd, to us, they feature Cyclemen, and Pansies as Fall plants, so you have something blooming in winter, lol, strange, to us.

Hi All,:hiya:

Went to a Celtic Concert in a lovely theatre this aft with 11 women. We had a good time and afterwards an hour sitting in the sunshine on a patio and chatting up a storm.:up: Seems we all needed that. Another one of the social outings that I organized for them.
I must get my thinking cap on for the next outing. I think it will be just another movie. It seems the easiest to organize.

I walked the dog on the bike path, prepared my supper and put the garbage pails at the curb for tomorrows pick up, so nothing too exciting.;)

Hopefully I can settle down soon to watch NCIS that I am recording.:up:

Wishing All a pleasant evening and hope to bbt...:heart:

Hi gang and welcome to the new bee :newbie:

Got to tour the battle fields before the national park was closed. Today it is all shut down, but the museum is open. One can spend hours there.
Anyway, it is fun, but this really slow INTERNET is a HUGE PITA.

See you tomorrow,if the INTERNET works.
