  1. I often wonder how others who have posted in this thread are doing. So, I really appreciate your update. I'm so happy to hear that all is going well for this little girl. It sure sounds like she had one amazing birthday party!
  2. I appreciate people who think outside the box. I did a search and it sounds like the answer to your question is the Romans: January and February were the last two months to be added to the Roman calendar, since the Romans originally considered winter a monthless period. They were added by Numa Pompilius about 713 BC. February remained the last month of the calendar year until the time of the decemvirs (c. 450 BC), when it became the second month. At certain intervals February was truncated to 23 or 24 days, and a 27-day intercalary month, Intercalaris, was inserted immediately after February to realign the year with the seasons. Now, here's what I was thinking about today. Why are those little button batteries (or whatever they are called) so expensive? I bought my husband a light that attaches to the bill on his hat. Since his vision is so limited, I thought it would help him and it did. Now, I need to replace the batteries; but doing so would be more expensive than buying a new light that comes with the batteries.
  3. I'm responding to the sad news of Gavin's passing by quoting him in this thread: Gavin, you endured more in your young life than many of us can ever imagine. Yet, you never whined, moaned, or complained. You were an intelligent, active member who was well respected by many and I will miss you. My heartfelt sympathy to your family and all who knew and loved you.
  4. Your losses hit me harder than any celebrity because even though we have never met, I consider you a personal friend. Sending
  5. Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas!
  6. My thanks to the Colts for once again taking the time to spread some Christmas cheer at Riley.
  7. I won't be adding any names, but I would like to say something to anyone who may have lost a "'personal celebrity" or "star" in 2016. By that, I mean those who have had to say goodbye to someone who may not have been well known to the world; but who played an important role in your life. That person may have been a grandparent, parent, in-law, friend, etc. Although his/her identity may never be known, my "personal star" is the baby/small child who saved the life of my granddaughter. I think that we have all experienced that first Christmas (or other important dates) without a special someone by our sides. So, I extend my sympathy, hugs, and hopes that the good memories help you through any rough days.
  8. I sent the below picture to a good friend on this site who asked me to post it in this thread because as she said . . . it tells a positive story. A story of hope. I declined because I've already dominated this thread enough and didn't want it to be all about me. Without even reading many of the threads upstairs, I know that there is probably a lot of sadness resulting from the Colt's lackluster season. That often leads to tension between members. So, I've changed my mind and am posting my picture if for no other reason than to remind everyone to breathe and remember that there are things in life far more important than football. The reason I fell in love with this picture was because my granddaughter is in the lead. It's as if she is saying . . . "life has thrown a lot my way, but nothing is going to stop me. So, the rest of you need to try to keep up".
  9. About 15 years ago, I started a tradition where I give my family members a few "gag" gifts. Each person has a separate theme and I enjoy hunting at garage sales over the year in search of these treasures that rarely cost more than 25 cents. While it may sound crazy, I think my family would be disappointed if I stopped my tradition as it leads to so much laughter when these gifts are opened. Example: My daughter has great taste. So, her theme is the opposite. Her theme is "Ugly". It's amazing how many ugly things one can find. This is a pic of one of the gifts she will be receiving this year. The fact that some of the "gems" are missing from this candy dish just makes it even better.
  10. I'm reading a novel called Play Dirty by Sandra Brown. It's main character is a QB for the Cowboys who was paid to throw a playoff game vs. the Redskins. After serving time, he is now having trouble fitting back into society. I waver from feeling bad for this man's present dilemma and wanting to give him a swift kick for throwing a game.
  11. I can think of many things to do with $85. Buying a rock in a leather pouch isn't one of them. But, they are sold out. So, I must be missing something. Reminds me of the guy who became a millionaire by selling . . . a rock in a box aka the Pet Rock. Now, I'm thinking that I need to come up with another way to market a rock. Any suggestions?
  12. One of the high points of 2016 for me was watching Peyton lift that Lombardi.
  13. Last week, I drove past a bar that was advertising Duck Farts for $3. I made a mental note to do a search to find out what that was, but forgot all about it until I saw your post. So, thank you, shakedown! Now, if anybody else is as clueless as I was; here is how a Duck Fart is made:
  14. I love to walk, but the only times you would find me running are in times of fear. Fear that I may miss a connecting flight. Fear that a small child was headed for danger. Fear that a mouse in my house would eat my alive. However, I really admire those who love to run and the stamina it requires. Great job, SCC!
  15. I join you with my thoughts and prayers for your friend's granddaughter and those who died in the crash. I know nothing about minimal change disease. Is this something that can be handled long term with medicine and restriction of fluids?
