What if I had to type a sentence? Goodness, I didn't think I would ever finish that one name!

LOL! It would get very busy with the whole sentence spelled out with those cute li'l critters. Try using JUST the first letter with an alphabet critter, and then do the rest of the word in colored text - using the font face "Comic Sans Ms" and a font size of "5", and make the rest of the letters in "bold", like this:

ee how this looks?

<img src="http://d21c.com/billie/Critters/CritterAlphabetS.gif"> <font face="comic sans ms" size=5 color=purple><b>ee how this looks?</b></font>

By turning OFF the bold, and the font color, face, & size at the end of that sentence, this paragraph is back to the default text.

Hi, Dita :)

I like apples, too - and ate two of them yesterday - not even dipped in chocolate. :)

Shoot! I didn't save the autumn graphic you posted last year. Wish I had, or that you could find it and post it again.

Hurry back to us if you can.

Thank you, dear Billie! You have so many calling on you...I hate to ask questions~!

I am going to try that later. I am going to visit a “used to be neighbor and friend” who now lives with her daughter. I haven’t seen her in two years and her daughter had written and said she wasn’t doing very well. (Has Parkinson’s). So sad..she and I were good buddies, went shopping together, went to lunch and visited each other in the neighborhood. Had loads of fun....it hurts when you see a good buddy go down that way. She is a couple of years older than me. See ya later, for sure!

Sometimes taking a bath is the best thing to do. Taking a bath won't change anything, but when you're in the tub, you are not responsible for anything - you are wet, for one thing, so no one can ask you to do anything... you can't work in there, because your papers will get wet. You can't answer the phone or receive any faxes or messages or assignments or ... Maybe it should be a long bath.

It's Innergize Day!

Do something good for yourself

Kiss Day


Deaf Awareness Week



National Cherries Jubilee Day

Cherries Jubilee

2 cans high quality pitted black cherries
2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/3 tablespoons cornstarch
4 peels of lemon skin (easiest to use a vegetable peeler)
1 ½ half teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
¾ teaspoon cardamom
¾ cup high quality warm cognac
vanilla bean ice cream

1) Prepare the stand for your chafing dish by putting it on the table in front of guests.
2) Pour the juice from the cherries into a wide, shallow saucepan over the stove.
3) Turn stove heat to medium.
4) Add the sugar, cornstarch, lemon peel, cinnamon, cloves, and cardamom to the saucepan and stir constantly until thick.
5) Let the mixture boil for about 3 minutes until flavors are saturated, stirring frequently.
6) Carefully remove the lemon peels and pour the cherries into the pan to warm.
7) Stir until the cherries are warmed through.
8) Pour Cherries Jubilee into your chafing dish and carefully pour warmed cognac over the top.
9) Bring to the table and use a match to light it on fire.
10) Place on chafing dish stand and let it flame beautifully.
11) Bring dessert dishes to the table with scoops of vanilla bean ice cream.
12) While the Cherries Jubilee is still flaming, ladle cherries and sauce over the ice cream and serve immediately. Enjoy!

Let’s see now, which September thread should I follow???

This one or that one?

It’s not nice to mess with the mind of an old guy. :)

Today’s my Mom’s 93rd birthday. Her sister turned 95 in July.

Gonna miss the debate tonight. We’re driving up to Sacramento for a Neil Diamond concert.

Hope y’all have a great Friday - on this thread and the other one.

Gotta go tackle some Friday chores.

Distant Perceptions

Across the distance of the human heart
one can feel so alone and apart
as if but a single life form on a plain
where nothing and no one seems sane

In such a place any thought may take root
growing on the fertile soil of happiness moot
and the crop may be more then one can stand
here upon this long idle and empty land.

In recourse to the silent spaces
our sanguine blood rises and races
dreaming of another time and place
another love and another face

My care package came from my Sister today, all kinds of candy, and a cake, but not as beautiful as yours.

She bakes me a pineapple cake and sends it United Parcel.

Famous Last Words
At my first defense no one stood with me, but all forsook me. May it not be charged against them. —2 Timothy 4:16

Just days before his death, Gandhi wrote, “All about me is darkness; I am praying for light.” By contrast, evangelist D. L. Moody’s last recorded words were, “This is my triumph; this my coronation day! It is glorious!” In both cases, their last words were significant expressions of their perspectives on life, death, and everything in between.

Aside from some personal greetings, Paul’s last recorded words dealt not with what he had done in life and ministry but rather with how he viewed people. What makes it even more significant is that some of those words were about people who had disappointed him.

Regarding an individual who had harmed him by opposing his ministry, Paul trusted the Lord to deal with him. And when considering those who had abandoned him when imprisoned, he asked others to handle them graciously: “At my first defense no one stood with me, but all forsook me. May it not be charged against them” (2 Tim. 4:16). His last words were those of compassion and kindness instead of harshness and retaliation.

Will our last words show the grace of Christ or the bitterness of a wounded heart? Our answer should impact the words we use today.

What have you written on memory’s page?
Deeds that were done in the Master’s name?
Words that were spoken to spread His fame?
What have you written today? —Anon.

What words will be your legacy?

COUNTRY ROADS

Almost heaven, west virginia
Blue ridge mountains
Shenandoah river -
Life is old there
Older than the trees
Younger than the mountains
Growin like a breeze

Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West virginia, mountain momma
Take me home, country roads

All my memories gathered round her
Miners lady, stranger to blue water
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky
Misty taste of moonshine
Teardrops in my eye

Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West virginia, mountain momma
Take me home, country roads

I hear her voice
In the mornin hour she calls me
The radio reminds me of my home far away
And drivin down the road I get a feelin
That I should have been home yesterday, yesterday

Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West virginia, mountain momma
Take me home, country roads
