Good morning, Pard, Robustus, MidnightSun, keywest, scout, grmoore, JM, senile, and TUrtLE!

Happy Easter, everybuddy!

Pard, thanks for the birthday wishes!

Robustus, glad you were able to get your mom home (the other night) before it started to rain. Will you be picking her up today for Easter services?

MidnightSun, thanks for the site showing the pollen numbers. I get it now. Glad you enjoyed the (virtual) cupcakes here yesterday; I had a few, too. :) Your predicted high is in the upper 50s today? Whoooeee! Spring IS coming to the mountains!

keywest, it's good to have you stopping in. :)

grmoore, have 2 great performances this morning!

JM, it was a good birthday yesterday. :)

TUrtLE, oh, my! Thank you for leaving one of my favorite hymns! Alan does a wonderful job singing it, too!

Happy Easter Claudie and Friends,

Your Easter Sunday movie is, The Old Rugged Cross sung by Alan Jackson.

"So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross,
Till my trophies at last I lay down;
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
And exchange it some day for a crown."

May you have a blessed Easter.

Greetings Claudie/others:

Happy Sunday! Happy Easter to those who celebrate this day! 51 degrees this morning.

Up early for our final check rehearsal this morning followed by two services. We have about 15 or so that play each time, plus the church's "regulars."

Have a great day all!

Happy Easter Claudie!

The Wundergroun.com site has pollen on a 1-12 scale. It is 9-11 right now for Poplar/Aspen/Cottonwood, Maple and Cedar/Juniper. They do not provide an explanation for those numbers. They use the sitefor their pollen count Your site did and now those numbers are understood.

Enjoyed attending your birthday partay very much. The cupcakes were delightful. Thank you for having me.

Enjoyed an early posting of my rounds yesterday, then a hearty late brekky. For me brekky at 6 AM is way late. 2 or 3 o'clock in the morning is the norm, about an hour after waking up.

Went w/homemade hash browns and vidalia onions, two jumbo eggs over easy, baby bella mushrooms and multigrain toast soaked w/evoo. Also had three strips of turkey bacon microwaved crispy.

Watched the Joy of Painting by Bob Ross who had 14 years of teaching of teaching painting on PBS. He used the wet on wet technique taught to him by the legendary Bill Alexander.

This is the technique used by me since 1988, the beginnings of my wet on wet style of oil painting. Still paint w/oils to this day.

Spent some hours enjoying BioShock, the underwater City of Rapture, on the XBox 360. The Los Angeles Times review concluded, "Sure, it's fun to play, looks spectacular and is easy to control. But it also does something no other game has done to date: It really makes you feel."

The New York Times reviewer described it as: "intelligent, gorgeous, occasionally frightening" and added, "Anchored by its provocative, morality-based story line, sumptuous art direction and superb voice acting, BioShock can also hold its head high among the best games ever made."

My review is, "It is a world set in the 1950's including its music that is enjoyed exceedingly with a combination of moderate violence with shooting weapons, utilizing plasmids that give unique powers, and a desire to protect the little sisters. A most engrossing world to be in."

Late morning saw the recyclables carried to the Dart and a ride down the mtn road. The road is nicely solid. My driveway needs some sun, wind, and warm weather. It still has 2" of mud.

Saw a medium size young white dog w/2 chocolate patches on it running up the mtn road. Parked, got out and called the dog. It did stop running, yet a few steps toward the dog caused the dog to book. It has a 5' metal chain leash dragging as it runs. Stopped at the Town Building to report its flight.

After disposing of the recyclables, a drive to Whitefield NH was made. Bumped into my pal the Rite Aid mgr inside of the Subway store. Had a $5 ($5.45 w/tax) black forest ham footlong loaded w/all the veggies.

Stopped at the Mac's Market where my friend the meat mgr works. Bought two packages of lean stew beef. The labels read chicken and were $3.39 a lb., instead of the usual $4.99 a lb. Mentioned it to the cutters and they said to go ahead. Plan to make the stroganoff later.

The CT River water level has returned to normal. Can see where gravel was filled in on one part of the side of the hwy where the river poured off of it into the forest. Spring continues.

The temp is 24°F (-4°C), with the high to be 58°F (14°C).

Have a splendid day!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU,HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR CLAUDIE. Hope you are having a wonderful day so far. Did you have any plans, what ever, hope you enjoy yourself.

It's 67 degrees here in South Jersey & the sun is shinning. We are invited to a friends house for Easter Dinner tomorrow, there will be about 12, everyone is suppose to bring something & the host will do the meat. I'm taking cole slaw,corm, deviled eggs, my home made pickles & a cheese cake. All home made except for the corn. I put the cheese cake in the oven & turned around to clean up & saw I forgot to put the sour cream in so turned & grabbed the pan from the oven & that quick it was hot so I burned my thumb & 2 fingers on my left hand. I dumped the batter back in the bowl & put the sour cream in beat it good & back in the oven it went. Hopefully it'll turn out, if not I'll make something else tomorrow morning. Yesterday I made 4 mini banana breads & got to thinking I never put the sugar in the batter. Wrench said he's going to put me in a cage so I don't make anything else.LOL

Hope you & your family have a HAPPY EASTER.

JM, yeah, Braves did really good last night! The pitching is fantastic right now. If only the hitting would take off, too.

grmoore, wow! Cool that tee church keeps asking you back to perform every year! Are you the only one playing or are there others, too?

MusicTeacher, we had a good time at the pottery place. Hope to get pix up soon....maybe later in the day. Hope today's performances go well for y'all!

Farful, hmmmmm, not sure I understand that pollen scale, though, MidnightSun said something about the scale used in his area was like that one. Hope your count goes down soon.

Good Morning, Claudie ♫ Happy Birthday to You! Thank you for sharing the cupcakes and drinks. I like iced tea or water. I always opt for water and tea, as I don't like sodas and getting too much sugar from fruit juices. Occasionally I do have coffee, though. Sorry no PB birthday pictures for you, as it is down now. But I did post a birthday greeting for you on FB this morning.

That is great news the pollen levels in your area have gone down! Have a great time with your family as you watch your Grandchildren painting pottery. Please take and share pictures with us. Enjoy your family birthday lunch out afterward.

Thankfully last night's Show #2 was a huge success with a much bigger audience. It was almost a full house, and the bigger audience was much more enthusiastic in responding to the show.

This morning I will be decorating the carrot cake that my Mom baked last night for my Church's Easter Sunday Celebration at a new Park venue within walking distance from our Church. This afternoon I will be going to The Rock Church in Anaheim to perform for Day 3 and Shows #3 and #4 of "The Choice" Easter Musical Drama. I thank God for our successful series so far, with a wonderful response from our audiences.

Have a Blessed Holy Saturday! (No pictures this morning, as PB is down again.)

Greetings Claudie/friends:

Happy Saturday & Happy Birthday, Claudie! It's 55 degrees and raining.

We had the hotel's free breakfast after sleeping in for a little bit and then made 'lemonade out of lemons' (weather-wise). Originally, we planned to walk around Stone Mountain this morning, but it's raining so we worked out on the treadmill in the hotel fitness room. :)

I have my rehearsal this afternoon at 1:00p for tomorrow's services and my wife will visit a friend in the area. We will go to dinner (provided) by the church at a local restaurant. This is the 8th or 9th time I have played for this particular church so it's a nice time of fellowship and Sunday worship.

Off to continue the day.

Have a great day all!

Good morning Claudie,

Happy birthday! Enjoy your day! My grandson was born last night, Nicholas was born at 11:18 PM. 7 lbs 10 oz, 20 inches. Daughter is pretty tired still this morning. She did not sleep much last night. We have the other grandson. He stayed overnight. He is getting ready to head to swim lessons with my sister. We will take him to the hospital a bit later to meet his new brother for the first time. Will see if I can get that last of my raking done too.

Good morning, Pard, Robustus, TC, LogicMan, MidnightSun, jqwright, yankie, attitash, and Peeka!

Thanks for the birthday wishes, y'all! They sure do make a person feel special! :)

YES! <pumps fist> The rain has knocked that pollen count down to 325! Still considered 'high,' but nothing like it even was!

Robustus, that's great that you took your mom to the Good Friday service and then somewhere to eat. I know she enjoyed both things. Lucky for you guys that it didn't rain; it rained here yesterday pretty much all day, so anything planned outside would have had to been moved inside.

MidnightSun, hope those warmer temps melt some more snow.

attitash, no surprises for me today, I don't think. :) How'd your gathering with your 'outlaws' go yesterday? Have a good time at your sister's!

Pard, TC, LogicMan, jqwright, yankie, and Peeka, thanks for stopping in!

Well, I thought I'd be staying home today, but that has changed (not anything special that got planned for my birthday, though). :) There is a pottery/ceramics place in our little town, and Daughter decided she wanted to take the kids there to pick a piece out and paint it (it's supposed to be another drizzly, dreary day here, so no playing outside). She wanted to know if Alhana (who's here for the weekend) wanted to go, too. Of course, she said yeah! So here are today's plans....Son, Alhana, and I will meet Daughter at the pottery place at 11 AM, and the kids will all do their thing. After that, we'll all go somewhere and have lunch (I'll call hubby to meet us there). It should be a good time. :)

<runs toward the kitchen>

I'll be back in just a minute.....

!! Happy Birthday Claudie !!

Our area saw a low of 20° yesterday morning. Forecast is for two more chilly mornings, perfect for the sugar maple sap to flow, and then a warm up. Hope that spring returns next week along with rain to melt the last of the snow and help thaw out the soil.

Enjoyed a brekky of the cod and shrimp with lots of veggies prepared yesterday. Carrots, Vidalia onions, and Sweet Twister™ peppers were added. Nice way to face the early morning at 2:30 AM.

The GB rounds went okay, the topics and posts were noticeably slower than usual. Several other sites were visited and tested using Speakeasy Speedtest. It accurately tests your download and upload speeds. Hope the mods iron out this site.

Played hours of BioShock. It is so pleasing to see the graphics on the 1080p 42" LED TV and hear the surround sound from my 10 y/o RCA sound receiver w/5 speakers and a powerful woofer. Saw that my last saved game was March 30, 2010, just over 4 y/a. That was when the XBox was last used, before this week.

Did not drive to see if the water in the CT River has receded. Know it will remain above flood stage until this afternoon. N.W.S. in Grey, ME says the water at 8 am yesterday was 18.6 feet. Flood stage is 17.0 feet.

The temp now is 31°F (-1°C), with the high to be 50°F (10°C).

Have a tremendous day!

First to answer your questions. I don't know what happen last week in getting back in touch with my church friend. But, I didn't bother calling her due to the "excitement" with my dad. So, it wasn't really a good time then. However, the landlord is still leaving messages asking me to tell him what's going on. I am just a little afraid to do so right now. So, I am going really to try hard to focus on that entirely tomorrow while I'm off work. Hopefully (crosses fingers,) nothing "exciting" will keep me away! Also as for that friend, it is better for her to make a schedule whenever she can come. I never got in touch with her to do that. So, I don't know if I'll get her help soon enough. I'm not upset at her. I don't want to take away any plans she has with her family and her activities. So, if she wants to come help, I'm welcome her to come. If not, no big deal. "Nothing has been set in stone." OK, enough of that rambling.

I had a great time with my mom this evening. My town had a special Good Friday service in the town square (town greens) uptown. A bunch of pastors from several local churches including mine came and preached on the crucifixion of Christ. Then, we combined some of the worship teams to sing a few songs. So, I picked up Mom after work and took over to that. The only disappointment was the weather. It was overcast looking like it could rain anytime and it was chilly. Temps. must been in the low 50's so we all had to bundle up with our coats on. But, that didn't stop us from enjoying the service. It only lasted about an hour, so it wasn't too long for us.

Then, we went to grab a bite to eat before I took her back to her place. I still plan on picking up Sunday to join me in Easter service. So far I don't know about my dad. I'm sure he'll come up with a good excuse not to go.
