Hi Annette,

Batten down the hatches!  I hope the storm isn't too bad....  so glad you had a good holiday.  I did too.  On my way home tomorrow.  

My other joy is that I finally bought a smartphone (my gift to myself)... HTC Evo by Sprint.  Having fun playing with it now.  Hah!

Hug,
Elaine

You are a brave woman Elaine!   I have wanted to try the i phone or similar for a while.  I just fear being technically challenged and not being able to use it.  Maybe for my birthday in the Spring.........let me know how you like it. xxoo Annette

My son got one of those smart phones for Christmas.  He was showing me all the things he can do with it.  It was pretty neat but way beyond my electronic knowledge.  I have a regular old cell phone and it does the job for me.  Christmas was alot of fun except my husband was at home sick with Bronchitis.  ERnjoy the ramainder of the Hollidays.   Mary L

Mary and Annette -- Stop thinking of yourselves as challenged.  Are you kidding?  Look what you've just accomplished!  

These phones are the miracle of our time -- DO IT!

Hug,
Elaine

OK Elaine.  You can be my teacher!!!  I get confused easily, I still havn't been able to shrink my picture to put on this site.  My son and his family are coming to dinner tomorrow.  My 13 year old grandaughter is going to do it for me. Oh, and     my son got us a surround sound system for our TV.  We live in a town house.  Don't you think our neighbors will love it?  I guess I am getting old.  Mary L

Mary - Regarding getting old, my mantra is "denial, denial, denial" otherwise known as the "3 D's".  A friend of mine came up with that a few years ago regarding his refusal to go to a doctor, ever!  So now we use if for anything that we think fits :)

Seriously -- we are all getting older, but that doesn't mean we have to get "old".... know what I mean?

Hug,
Elaine

A little bit of joy from a stranger (I see it as the universe talking to me).....

Walking down Second Street is my beloved Belmont Shore carrying 3 takeout lunches from Thai Gourmet.  I'm holding them with both hands, arms bent and out in front of me in order to be sure they don't tip over and possibly drip.  A woman suddenly walks up next to me and says:  "You look like you're carrying a wedding cake.  I'll bet you've cooked many cakes and pies judging from the way you're carrying that takeout."  (Totally not true by the way)  I laughed and said:  "Thank you, I'm happy to know I have good form."  She said:  That reminds me that when I was a little girl if anything went wrong  or there was a problem,  my mother would always say "Let's make a cake!"  

With that she walked away and I kept on walking home.


I'm going to make "Let's make a cake" my mantra for a while at least.  It struck me as such a positive thing to say in a negative moment.  

You may think me a bit crazy - but I believe it was a reminder from the universe that there is always a light if you look for it.  

SO, ladies -- Let's make a cake shall we?  :)

Hug,
Elaine

Hi Elaine,  I just had to respond.  I am not a "cake baker" but I can make great cheesecake.  By the way, I talked my son into taking back the sound surround thing he was going to install in my livingroom.  He gave us gift certificates which I am very happy with but he just could not understand why I didn't like the original gift. On another subject, my grandaughter could not shrink my picture either!!!!!  Let me know when we can bake that cake, ok.     Mary L
