Judy, I had that happen also. One of Jeff's friend had he same computer as I did, and somehow tthey were able to swap drives and run a back-up that way.

Obviously we bought a back-up unit, so this won't ever happen again.

AND BTW........... I am a DUCK fan. I even have a picture of my son Bjorn hugging the NHL trophie. He works for the owner of the Ducks. <quack quack>.

Bjorn is one of our children who used to go on tour with the Billy Graham family. He was very active in 'Psalty' and their crew, which was led by the son of Billy Graham. If Bjorn had to choose between Rick Warren and the Graham family, his vote would go to the Graham family.

Our family have known Rick Warren since 1993, when he started Saddleback CC in the tents. He could've been very instrumental in the lives of our 5 children, but declined out of fear for a bad reputation.

BBL <maybe>

T, try the yellow packets. It is the only one that doesn't leave a taste in my mouth or give me a headache.

T, see if you can find some protein powder at a health food store or from your doctor. Some pharmacies might have it. Also, Carnation Instant Breakfast is a good way to add some calories. My daughter, a dietician, was making milkshakes out of them when she was trying to beef up her husband. She added protein powder to that or to cereal, oh I think she may have gotten it from Shaklee.

Oh wow Ms T I also have a picture of my son Rob drinking some Adult beverage from the Stanley Cup. That was in 98 I believe.

I am so happy that my computer is fixed, but we are looking on the other computer, my Dh thinks that he might have some of the pictures stored on his.

Also Ms T, try "Truvia" it is an all natural sweetner made from a plant that has no chemicals. It is just taken from the Stevia plant. I use it an it has absolutely no after taste and there is an organic version in the stores and it is good also. I find that it sweetens cold item better than hot though.

Well, I wonder if Vicky's party got rained on.

I'm heading for bed. My last load of Christmas fabric is in the dryer. I just folded the first load. Have y'all ever tried to fold an 11 yd. piece of fabric by yourself. I thought about not washing the fabrics but I'm so glad I did. One of the reds bled and so did one of the blues - the selvages are no longer white but the rest of the whites in the fabrics still look white - lucky me.

Tul, when I was younger I always wanted to sky dive. Now that I'm older I see no reason to jump out of perfectly good airplane. I hope you enjoy your jump. I have a friend that made a jump for his 40th birthday and he's looking forward to doing it again on his 50th.

I'm off to bed now. Y'all have a good night.

Well folks it is about time to call it an end to this wonderful day. I hope you all have had a fun, busy or productive day. I did get the backyard all done & it looks so nice, if I do say so myself. lol Tuckered out before I got the front done. That may happen tomorrow evening.

Cindy folding that large of a piece of fabric isn't easy is it? LOL Am glad you did launder your fabric since you had the pieces that bled.

I hope the rain didn't ruin Vicky's party too. That has happened when we have had lg gatherings and it can put a kink in plans but it usually just makes things that much more fun somehow. lol

Sewcarolyn I like how you chose not to see that you had 16 blocks too many but now have blocks for a sm quilt. Great thinking there!

"T" I know it is a problem for you girl and I don't mean any disrespect in any way, but I sure wish I could eat Ice Cream and not have to worry about gaining weight! I can understand the problem though. Fat Free for cholesterol is good, you need sugar for low blood sugar, you need some fat content to keep up the weight, sure seems confusing and a real problem, so I sure do see where you are coming from. I need to cut the fat, I do need just a sm amt of sugar & I do need to lose weight. And I love Ice Cream and cannot have it due to cholesterol & weight. If only we could have perfect health & perfect bodies. Getting older is sure not for wimps or sissy's.

Well I am going to bed and read. My Dad has called me 4 times in the last 1/2 hr. They live about an hr. from me & they are having terrible winds there and light storms. He just called again to tell the wind broke his tree off at the ground in his front yard & they have no electricity. Bless his heart, I don't know why he doesn't call one of my 2 brothers but I get the calls & reports. I told him and Mom to just go to bed that the storm was about over & they would be fine. I can't do anything tonight & they do not need to be out driving at this hr. I wish to goodness they would move up here close to me but they will not hear to that! I'd give anything to have them close so I could check on them daily. Like right now!

Well goodnight. Sleep tight.
Love You All
