    I'm not influenced by these new so-called "influencers"

    Nope, not even a little.

    Are you resilient?

    I sure hope so. In the past 2 weeks I have had a squamous cell skin cancer removed, an endometrial biopsy (benign, thank goodness) and I just got called back for a diagnostic mammogram. When it rains, it pours! Gratitude gets me through it all.

    "Cocktail" wedding attire

    No rules anymore for black dresses at weddings, especially if cocktail attire is specified. I personally still won't wear white to a wedding though.

    If you could time travel where would you go?

    My great grandfather and Hemingway were close cousins. My very proper southern grandmother whose maiden name was Hemingway was embarrassed when people found out the relation, lol he was a drunkard! Anyway, my son's middle name is Hemingway, but I honestly don't care for his writing either.

    Out of curiosity, why the Fitzgeralds and not Papa?

    Great Christmas gift suggestions - post them here!

    Hoverboarders beware! If the hoverboard beeps when it needs to be charged, make sure your child (or you!) gets off immediately and charges it. The board has a limited amount of charge after the beeps and it will abruptly stop, throwing the rider off. Don't ask how we know this!

    Personal Freedom, personal responsibility and social control.

    I'm not anti gun, in fact, I am a gun owner. I just think there should be stronger checks on who may purchase. I don't believe in an absolute free for all for the 2nd amendment. While I understand the slippery slope argument and agree with it to an extent, I hardly consider drinking a Big Gulp...

    Please share your favorite holiday song

    On my deathbed, please send Harry Connick Jr. to sing "Sleigh Ride" (with DH by my side, lol). As well as anything by Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby, I also love "Mary, Did you Know" by CeeLo Green, "Little Drummer Boy" by Bob Seger, and "Mistletoe" by Justin Beiber (lol, can't believe I...

    Personal Freedom, personal responsibility and social control.

    ...that they are endowed by their Creator certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, LIBERTY, and the Pursuit of Happiness... Liberty is God given, not a gift from any government. There are of course limits. But I will happily drink my Big Gulp if I want to. Maybe two of them! I...

    School Shooting At Santa Clarita High School

    I am so sorry. That is just terrible. I hate that kids and parents live in fear.

    School Shooting At Santa Clarita High School

    I honestly think that this is my greatest fear. I say a prayer for all kids each morning when I say goodbye to my kids. Something must be done.

    Great Christmas gift suggestions - post them here!

    During Christmas the Meyer lemons are in full harvest. My favorite gift (hostess, teacher, etc.) is to find vintage glass juicers and make a gift basket with homemade lemon poppyseed bread, a juicer and several juicy lemons.

    Name your favorite sad song.

    Cat's in the Cradle by Harry Chapin. My daughter used to cry every time she heard it. It is powerfully sad because it's such a common thing.

    Yes, indeed! Lol, the man who made the Santa said he got the very old mink at a thrift shop! @Daisys and Diamonds it takes about 3 days. Of course, half the lights are out and that is so frustrating. I tend to hyper focus so I can knock it out quickly. My house is a total wreck while I am...

    @Mamabean @distracts @AprilBaby Thank y'all! I definitely have a strong Southern style that's not for everyone. While I would kill to live in a grand old historic home, I have to manufacture charm here in the burbs! :lol: @distracts - I think I have had that pine for 15 years, lol. It looks...

    I probably got the stands at hobby lobby. The large ones work for most platters. If it's too bowl shaped then you may have to use the wire kind.

    Marble countertops etched

    Lol, after DH blamed the dog, he suggested just letting it be and appreciate the character of it. I think not! It looks pretty bad to me but honing the whole thing may look better.
