        Hi, Beautamous! I've tried to toss in a comment or two just to keep myself off the "where'd they go?" discussion. The "greatest" thread was done as the muse was whispering, and since you're one of the very smartest and engaged people here, I'd LOVE to hear your thoughts.

        I would like to travel more. I did get to see a tiny bit of NYC two years ago, but not near enough! I'd love to go back.
        Take care of yourself in the process of all that travel, I know it can be taxing!
        And, muddling through, thanks. :-)

        I hope you are doing well and that things are beginning to calm down a bit for you. Or at least that the end of all that busy is in sight! We have had such pleasant weather here this year, in my opinion, it seems a shame you keep missing it. :-) Take care of yourself.

        I'm going back home tomorrow. Yeah, I keep hearing about the weather - PLUS a fantastic Perseids display at night. It's still not much on night here. Makes me a little grumpy. Looking forward to going home!

        Just got back.... and I'd say it's been raining. Rivers are up. Everything is green. Hardly seems like home!

      Hi Grandpa, you posted a link for a tour trough the USA a couple of weeks ago. I don't know in which thread. Do you remember the threads title? Thanks.

      I'm not finding a link to your blog in the Recipes post. Perhaps you were able to delete it on your own but if it's still there, let me know and I'll look again.

        Thank you! Yes, when Grandma and I saw the program description, we HAD to watch it. We skipped the ISIS segment, came in on the last half of rare earth elements part, and watched the Tyson segment in full. Enjoyed it fully.

      I misunderstood. Yep- it's Ms Spidey. Now that chocolate spider would take real art talent. Bet you could do it!

        Merry Christmas to you and yours, Ms. Spidey? And sure, I know how to do the [spo[i][/i]iler] thing - what I needed to learn to make were those chocolate spiders! Thank you for your kindness and thoughtfulness - you're one of the real joys I've found here.

        Thank you, Sigs! Just a lot of work and a potential major deal that is causing some analysis and deep reflection. When something comes along that could change your life, it's somewhat distracting.

      I missed your birthday! Cry pardon. I hope you had a good one! Still in Alaska? Is it beautiful? You travel safe!

        Thank you! I realized during my birthday that I had it checked off as "don't make public," so that was of my own doing. And I did stop at a beautiful place in Alaska - but the place where I'm working isn't one of those beautiful places. It still has its own uniqueness, though.

        That is somewhere my husband would love to move to. Me, I'm less enthusiastic about the idea. Enjoy your time there!

        Thank you, Danie! Indeed I am. My birthday just ended, and I'm away from family, so that's a bit of a bummer, but I'm in Alaska on a gig and making some decent money, so woo-hoo for that.

        I hope this find you well and happy and fulfilled. Thank you very much for the note!

      BTW-awhile ago you posted a video...I watched it and then I watched another that was sorta *attached* to the first. Was that you that was caught in a tornado? The car windows got blown out? I though I recognized your voice.

        Heya, Sigs. No, I haven't been caught in a tornado with blown-out windows. I did hold up the phone for a video one time in a tough drive through Wyoming when a storm, with snow, was going on. I did some tired narration on that one.

        Hope this finds you well!
