Re: ***~~~*Fall Baking Thread -2014 *~~~***

Thank you for the tip on finding the cookies. And yes, I am thinking this would be a good one to take to my Sunday School class, so I cannot be tempted....

Re: ***~~~*Fall Baking Thread -2014 *~~~***

Jilly, that does sound delicious!

Were the cookies for the topping easy to find? And I know exactly what you mean about the topping (too much butter), I have had that happen before. Thanks for the heads up, and thanks for the recipe!

Yes Deb, I was looking for something akin to a crumb cake . Which I had to look up the definition of to make sure I knew what you meant since I do not hear that term in this neck of the woods! I thought maybe someone would have a tried and true recipe, but apparently I must venture out into the pum...

Re: What's it like to live in St. Louis?

I grew up and live about 40 minutes north of St. Louis, my sister lived in CO for a while years ago (Idaho also, GORGEOUS!) and I went out to stay with her a couple times. (Everything seems to have been covered that's of any real importance) So I will just say, aesthetically speaking, there is no co...

Thanks for the thread Deb, lots of yummy looking things in here. :love: I think I may have posted this first one before, but even so, it's definitely worth repeating. I have not met a person who doesn't love this yet. I suppose if I ran into someone who didn't like pumpkin they wouldn't. Apparently ...

Re: Why is PS slower than 10 yrs ago?

ksinger , in regard to the article you posted, there's much that could be said, but I will keep it brief, to this one commemt, and then I am done as I know all too well this could go on ad infinitum.

It was lovely to see you posting again, even if it was briefly, Ellen . I know that you have flitted (flit?) by from time to time to say "hello", but until today I haven't really read anything very substantive from you in a very long time. I didn't mean that to sound as rude as it does . ...

Re: Why is PS slower than 10 yrs ago?

I'd say because the world is a much different place than it was 10 years ago. PS had its heyday when there weren't many 1:1 social media outlets and most connection was done through interest-specific boards......jewelry, cars, purses, etc. In those early days, this was the way people primarily conn...

Re: Elephant cries after being released.

The video is way too heart breaking Ellen. Sometimes it's not cruelty that moves us to sobs but instead it happens when we witness happiness, pure joy; that's heightened immeasurably by the pain and heartbreak that we know preceded it. I literally cried all day when I learned that Jenny the younger...

Re: Saturday mornings with kids and without. FUNNY!

The ironic part of this is that until you've had the kid Saturday morning, you can't truly appreciate the without kids Saturday morning! However, I would have never forgone those mornings - I have two great adult kids and a granddaughter to make Saturday mornings fun again - not to mention an early...

Re: Elephant cries after being released.

Thank you to thecat and Gypsy for explaining. However, I am somewhat perplexed by some comments about the video being too heartbreaking to watch. The video I saw was terribly heartwarmimg. It showed two elephants reunited after decades. They bent bars trying to get closer to each other and "emb...
