Good evening.

I saw something big, round, and yellow in the sky this morning. It was so bright. I think that was the "sun". It only lasted till noon, but I'll take it. :)

Hope you had a great TGIF! :)

Hi all.

Frosty, I hope things are going better/well for y'all.

I heard on the radio news that Bristol Bay in Alaska has been saved from oil drilling. Do you remember if that is the area that the Alaskan mushers were advocating for a couple of years ago?

I hope there is Brightness in the holiday season for you and yours.

Peace, Light and Love to all.

Uncle, looks like the Pidgies might be on strike ! Maybe it's too cold or they're tired of laying over 300 + eggs this year ! !

still no eggs. unheard of. we sit at 2 for the entire month of December. I think there should be a congressional hearing to look into the lack of production by the pidgies. are they trying to drive up the price of eggs? hmmmmmmm

no eggs still. maybe the pidgies are like me, just too busy for anything but a few minutes of sleep here and there? LOL
erod is still holding on to a tiny, single egg from her annual bet . I just had to double check that we have a mere 2 eggs so far this month. and Mr EP has only a very slim chance at 350.

Hi Frosty and Friends.

Frosty, it was good reading your Nov. post.Don't know if I've been here since then. I had a major computer crash a few weeks ago and haven't gotten it fixed yet. Luckily am able to use this old Mac Mini, but it is very, very slow and sometimes very, very tedious. Other times not as bad. I plan on getting my Intel iMac fixed,but haven't done it yet.

Did you have all the wonderful food you usually make for Thanksgiving?I didn't do anything, just home and cooked in stages. I say my meal was deconstructed and I made it one dish at a time spread out over days. I can't do much at one time, but am also used to eating like this. I made some turkey thighs and drumsticks this year, no big whole turkey. This was much easier except for how I made it more difficult than need be. I ate well, just not in one big meal. But still haven't had any pumpkin pie or wild rice. Didn't get those made.

I hope things are going better for you.

Have you thought about getting a tablet that you can take back and forth and use in hot spots, instead of a memory stick at the library?

You can get portable hotspots but I don't really understand why or when or how you use them. You probably know more about them than I do. And maybe just not appropriate for your situation. But worth a think. ;)

I was visiting a friend in the hospital and borrowed her iPad to look up where to get the cheapest gas on the way home. I couldn't believe how fast it was! Amazing. I didn't know they even allowed things like that in hospital rooms. She has her mobile phone there, too. Times have changed.
