Bought my T-Day turkey last night, but I'm contemplating cooking it tomorrow... It's just Ray and me and I bought a little one, but will make stuffing and some sweet potatoes, even though I don't really like them!

I'm working this morning. Our year end audit has been moved up a month, so the auditors will be here 12-8 to audit our Oct and Nov month ends. Because of the T-Day holiday, we'll only have 2 days to close out the month when we usually drag our feets and take the first full week of the month, so I'm hussling to get every thing processed that we can now.

Congrats to you and your staff Barb. It's such a nice feeling to have things go well and have it over with!

Well, that worked! Thanks, Jen!

Somebody asked about the deposit on a 9-night cruise (the Jewel southbound from Vancouver to San Diego). That's one where RCI is playing it both ways - even though they've cut the credits, the deposit was still $900. But that's a cruise that may well be cancelled because now the Mounties, who were going to occupy the Radiance and Jewel during the Olympics, have apparently backed out of the deal. So we'll see...



I read about that............wish they would make up their minds......

Congrats Barb-----glad you all did so well............

dont stress too much Susan............

Morning all...........

It sure is quiet today! Kathy, I think RCI is caught in the middle on this one - I wonder if they'll end up as a plaintiff in the case, too.

It's 29 degrees in CT. I went for a ride around town with my Dad and checked out all my old schools. The high school is a monstrosity now. Usually Dad is given to hyperbole, but he's spot on when he complains about how ugly it is.

And we went by my childhood home, which has really fallen into disrepair - the big kitchen window is all boarded up, they've cut down a bunch of trees, other trees have fallen over and not been replaced and the yard is a mess. It looks like the Clampetts moved in. Crying or Very sad I guess that, although you can go home again, you shouldn't look too closely!

Morning all..........crazy day as usual

Kathy.......I would have refused the muslim stamps. That just irritates me but oh well.........

Dgd had her first 'gymnastic meet' today....she actually performed (I figured there wasn't a chance that she would go out there!)....I told her she was gr8 and she replied with "and awesome'...not lacking self confidence in that child!!!! LOL

Just found a recipe online for a rice stuffing for the turkey...looks really good...I can't stand regular stuffing so I don't even make it (I personally can't cook anything I don't eat--including pumpkin pie ewwwwww)...So I think I'll try the rice stuffing...

lots of work to get done so guess I better finish up.......family dinner tonight at Chilis .....yay ...enchilada soup..mmmmmmmmmm

Have a GR8 Sat y'all

Jul-I had no idea what kind of stamps they were till I came home and looked them up online............had to use 2 already..............wonder if I change them out for another kind?? I really dont want to use them on cards i send and I rarely pay bills thru the mail...........these stamps can sit forever..........

Congrats to your GD...great to have such self confidence at a young age........I know I didnt have any...........

Im with you and pumpkin pie.........dont like it..............last year, we got an ice cream pumpkin pie.....now that was tasty!

Barb, Glad your off the hook. Let someone else write the action plans. Did you guys pass without a write-up?

Have a wonderful dinner tomorrow and a great cruise. Hug Nancy and Ken for us. They are special people.

It snowed again like crazy this evening just as Bob was headed home. He ended up cleaning everybody's car off at the Center since they were surprised at the sudden storm and didn't have ice scrapers or brushes. (He's always prepared like a Boy Scout he's so anal Laughing

4 Scarves completed. Cheers

Our staff did great...the surgeons and anesthesia...not so good...docs have a hard time with just addopting pat safety goals...we get them & say how do we make this work, they moan & groan and say why do I have to do this...

SO the 2 things that were zings from OR was surgeon signs on H&Ps, and anesth pre signing orders when surg starts...

Over the house there were some things that will need work...I am very proud of our staff...they did fabulous

Barb congrats on your great staff. It reflects a great leader. I've heard all of the surgeon and anesth stuff before. I guess it's a wide ranging problem.

Have a great cruise.

I am addle brained. (I guess I usually am Laughing ) but today especially. I just spent 8 hours working on developing a Small Group Concept for our church and taking a Strength Finders Test. Some of the results were spot - on for me. I'm amazed. Others surprised me a bit. It seems like I'm falling back in to an Administrator mode because I agreed to do some of this stuff, but I guess if I can be of help I should. I can be a cruising retiree in January again. After dinner I'll go back to knitting which is a brainless activity for me therefore relaxing.
I had set aside all of today to get this stuff started and I feel as though I've done that so in that respect I feel good.

Now I'm off to surf around and zone out a bit before fixing dinner.

Have a great day all.

While your rice stuffing sounds good, give me my Mom's old fashioned stuffing! It the reason for my T-Day meal! The Turkey is only to hold the stuffing! lol!

Jul, sorry you miss the weekends at this time of year. When I was a KMart manager, we didn't have ANY days off work between the Sunday before T-Day and Christmas. Back then, we were closed on T-Day and Christmas at least! Even when I complain about my job now sometimes, I"m so glad I'm not in retail! But, hey, it pays the bills right?

Wow, lots of celebrating this week! Congrats to all! Congratulations

Cold but sunny day here. If I get a burst of energy, the plan is to move the furniture around this afternoon and bring the tree up to start decorating... we'll see if I get that far! HolidayTree

I think you forgot the final step. Looks like you copied and pasted the actual file from your computer. When you locate the file, you need to hit the "host it" button in the bottom of the the box. Then you will get another box with 3 different URL's, copy and paste the middle url into the post.

I will try and do more detailed instructions.

Morning everyone!

My 12 hour scrapbook day, was fun! I got about 8 pages done, from Las Vegas, and about 16 Christmas cards made. They had a massage therapist there, doing full massages for $1 a minute. So I had a 30 min massage, she was really good, wish I had done the full hour! She worked on my foot for awhile and it felt much better.

Speaking of stuffing/dressing, Dream dinners had a stuffing recipe you could make last week, so I went ahead and made it and put it in the freezer. What I thought was really odd was, they used salad croutons for the bread, then added celery, onion, sausage, dried cranberries, and pecans and various spices. So we'll see how it turns out.

Happy Anniversary Patti and Jim!

OKay, I am going to try and do step by step instructions. Maybe I am just not explaining it right. I know Jean got one picture posted, but not sure which method she used.

Hosting a picture:

Step 1

Click on the "Host and Image" button on the tool bar, sixth button over.

Step 2

Click on browse button, and locate your picture on your computer.
Click on your picture so it shows up in the blank box.

Step 3

Click the little "host it" button at the bottom of the window.

Step 4

I new window opens up with 3 different URL's, copy the middle URL and paste it in your post.

The only problem I had with the hosting was getting rid of the little box after I was done. And it's positioned right over the reply, which makes for a PITA.

Jean, After you copy the URL, just go back up to the tool bar and click on the host a picture button again, and it will close the window. Then paste the Url into the post box.
