Who Needs a Title?

"The easiest kind of relationship is with ten thousand people, the hardest is with one." - Joan Baez

I can't even think of a clever or informational title... so you get my generic one.

I finally finished getting the two big groups at LASR/WC migrated to Google Groups yesterday. I have to tell you... I really, really LIKE Google Groups. It took a little getting used to because humans really are creatures of habit and it's been all Yahoo Groups, all the time, but Google is really tidy. The only drawback I found was that they don't have the kind of documents saving ability as Yahoo -- but for folks who don't need that, I think Google Groups is the way to go. And, heck, they appear to be virus free.

I've spent the last two days in Yahoo group's files and databases where most of the viruses have hit, and wasn't getting any. I started thinking that maybe Yahoo had finally fixed things. But then, last night, WHAMM-O!!, my virus protections stuff all lit up while I was in files. So, yeah, it was time to go.

So, if you're looking for a place to host a group, I can happily recommend Google Groups.


It snowed yesterday, all day. Again. To be honest, I wouldn't mind the snow so much, or even the cold, if it wasn't so FREAKING windy all the time. I can handle snow and cold in moderation, I'd even be able to get out and take my walks if it wasn't for the gale force winds we seem to be having on a daily basis. I swear, my rear is expanding by the minute.

Is it March yet?


DD made a chain mail bracelet yesterday and then made a pair of earrings using jump rings that are just gorgeous! I can't wait to get them up on her store. I got another 8 or so earrings posted yesterday, but I still have a pile to load. I wish she could do it, but I don't give her a lot of freedom on the computer. Mostly she visits Bella Sara and PopTropica. *G*


DH are trying to organize a date night tonight. It's a massive ordeal, mostly because we need someone to watch DD and we just don't have THAT many options. I *think* my SIL is going to watch her, but I have to confirm it this a.m. I told DH that it's been forever since we've actually just sat down together and talked. He works ridiculous hours during the week, and on the weekends he needs to decompress, so he usually goes away to do something like snowmobiling (which I hate and isn't really conducive to conversation anyway). We'll see if it pans out. There are days I feel like I don't even know him anymore...


You Need Structure in Your Life

You take comfort in your routine, and any deviation from it makes you feel quite nervous.

You like things to be structured and decided. You want to know what's going to happen.

The unknown makes you very nervous. If you know something is going to happen, at least you can prepare for it.

You like to have a plan A, a plan B, and if possible, plans C and D. Even if you can't plan for everything, you try!

Absolutely true!

I hope you get your date night.

Me--I have nursing duties.

I think that is great and I hope you're able to have your date night with DH.

If I lived closer, I would watch DD for you.

re quiz: You Need Structure in Your Life this is so accurate.

Have a good Saturday and a great date night.

We got a HUGE catalog in the mail yesterday that made me think of you. Well, actually, it made me think of DD. It's a catalog for making jewelry with all kinds of beads, crystals, etc. Very cool stuff!

I hope and your DH get your date night! It's important to reconnect every now and then.
Can't wait to see the chain mail piece you were describing.
Re quiz: You Need Structure in Your Life. (Well, yeah.)

I hope you have a fabulous day!
