Howard's the Very First CUPCAKE! Okay, that was a bit over the top. I apologize, lol! We're all cool and green and soggy. I downloaded the new FireFox update overnight, and yanno? it's working VERY well, so far. MUCH faster (so far). I'm pleased.I *ought* to go to town today, but I can feel myself talking myself out of doing so. Expecting some pretty big storms, early, and don't want to have Beau stuck outside when that happens. Sez I.
Well, I'll settle for Howard getting the very first cupcake... you know, warm from the oven. ;-)As for town and storms ...when in doubt, don't.
Donno. I kind'a like First Cupcake.
LOL! Yes, but would Judy? 8-)
Ah. Hadn't thought of that. Uhhhh....
Well, all ready: looks like I am going to town, lol! listener, the sedum I'm have trubble with may be related to Autumn Joy, but distantly. . . . there are about four hundred kinds of sedums. This is a low, creeping, VERY prolific small yaller flower type. And it's more invasive than *anything* I've evah grown. Luckily, Nancy's chickens like it just fine. . . . If one's only mission were to hide dirt, it would be grand. I just had other things in mind, grin. . . .
Okay, then don't send me any Sedum. ;-)Hope your jaunt to town was smooth and fruitful and that Da Boy was a good boy. :-)
Computer's been acting up the last few days. Programs usually, but not always, load very, very slowly -- I'm talking hours. Once they're up, though, they usually work fine. FireFox is up, so I can get on here. Aside from the computer frustrations, things haven't been too bad. I've been able to get other things done. That includes things with my Netbook, although that is hard to use because the keyboard is too small for touch typing.
Bill, my computer frustrations pale beside hours to load a program!
Bill, you always seem so patient with computer issues. Hat's off to you!
Despite the slow-loading programs, the fact that they ran once they were up let me get quite a bit done today. When I restart the computer not too long from now we'll see whether I'm right that tings are loading a bit better or whether that's wishful thinking.What I am NOT patient with is the service provider (PlatinumTel) for my Blackberry. The mean reason I went for the phone -- which you'll recall I won in a raffle -- was so I could use it as a tethered modem with my netbook. But to do that I need info from ptel about which they appear genuinely clueless. Alternatively, there is a program I could download that would let me use it as a tethered modem without that info. But the phone won't download files and the only solution ptel has a clue about doesn't work.I am just about at the point of junking the phone and going back to the Jitterbug, which has decent-sized keys. It only makes phone calls, but that's about all I do anyway. I'd thought I'd pass the Jitterbug along to Penny, who really should have a cell phone, but she has in fact never used it.
There was big, scary thunder and lightning for a few minute, but it passed quickly and I'm not even sure we got any rain. Such a bother, rushing about to close all the windows.
BTW Puddle, glad the meatloaf came out well the other day. I *LOVE* meatloaf! The weather does seem a bit warm for it though. Do you put ketchup on it or is it the kind with gravy?
I second the question!
Neither, lol! No tomatoes in it either. Two pounds of ground pork, 1/2 pound sausage, several tablespoons of Montreal Rub for Steak, one egg. One helping hot from the loaf, the rest just cold sliced. Usually without bread, but sometimes with mayonnaise anyways, and/or cheese slices. I haven't had catsup in the house for a couple of years -- tired of trying to find no sugar stuff, as if one should have to!
No ketchup! A woman after my own heart. And the meatloaf recipe sounds delicious.
Can finally say I've read a book by James Michner, a short one, only about for and a half hours. It's called Legacy and deals with the Constitution. Very interesting indeed.

Picked up Vt*Grand from the Summer daycare "camp" she goes to now. I was warned that she'd be covered in dirt. Yup! When I arrived she and several others were filling plastic recepticals with water from an outdoor faucet. So we went inside and scrubbed up, gathered her gear, and she was very grateful for the iced juice and crackers & cheese snack (plus blueberries) that I had for her on the car. We set off and pretty soon she told me that she needed quiet so she can rest. That was almost 2 hours ago. When we got here, I quickly set her up with soft pillow and a comforter to lie upon on the couch. When she wakens we're all set up for painting with watervcolours, as she has wanted to do this for two weeks. After painting comes bath time and a yummy dinner. By then Daddy (Eldest) should be here. All good!
Plus! The Kitties took a big step today. I ventured to leave them together while I was away, with full run of the house (excepting the office). When I came in, they were both awake and resting in a recliner! Gfood kitties!!
Um, that is, Good kitties"!!
Checked my shopping list last thing before I turned into the check out -- had everything, plus a couple more, *except* the mustard. Which was back on aisle one. I seldom use it, and have a bit left, so skipped it. The Goobey was a prince whilst I was gone, and overjoyed at my return: grabbed his squeaky bone and proceeded to dance about. And brought it in, and drank a whole lot of water, and then relaxed in front of the door. The puppy is receding, though still present enough to be a delight. (Why are proceed and recede NOT spelled the same way? Got it wrong, *twice* lol!)
I don't know, Puddle. They certainly should be. T'would make life easier.
I would have guessed that the words came from two different languages.I would be wrong. MERRIAM-WEBSTER:Origin of PROCEEDMiddle English proceden, from Anglo-French proceder, from Latin procedere, from pro- forward + cedere to go — more at pro-First Known Use: 14th centuryOrigin of RECEDEMiddle English, from Latin recedere to go back, from re- + cedere to goFirst Known Use: 15th centuryWhat a difference a century makes. ;-)
puddle, I'm always happy when you make it there and BACK again. Not as happy as Beau, of course, but that's nigh on to impossible! LOL!
