Fascinating! I find it interesting that the US is one of the places he avoids because people view him suspiciously! :cheeky: What a sad statement about our country!

Re: A year of loss and a new puppy...

Violet, I'm so sorry that 2016 was so difficult! You've endured more than one person should have to. I'm so glad that you added Brodie to your family and that he was just the tonic needed to lift Rhonda's spirit! May he bring you many years of happiness!

Re: Fun idea for kids?

Grissom's mills dinner rolls is what it says on the bag. They have to thaw and rise for 4 hours or so before cooking depending on the temperature. Hmm. We live in the Southeast and I've never seen Grissom's here. They sure do look good though! We made our very own butter this afternoon to go on the...

Re: Viral Meme About Children And Consent

I agree completely, although I also agree that a kiss to grandma and grandpa is pretty harmless and there ARE times when doing the "right/nice" thing outweighs what we (child or adult) might prefer to do. Along these same lines, it drives me crazy when parents post photos/blogs/FB posts ab...

Re: Thanksgiving Pies & Dinner

We are boring. I will make the standard pumpkin, pecan and apple pies. The most rebellious I get is making an apple crisp instead of a pie because I prefer the crisp topping to pie crust.

Re: Losing my engagment ring and finding hope.

That said, several of you have pointed out that there is strength in accepting help when needed, and have already started by sending gifts (despite my attempts to talk you out of them). ) Accepting help is MUCH harder than giving it (at least for me). I learned that a few weeks ago when my 10 year ...

Re: Question for Yennyfire!

Chiming in late. I actually copied TGal'a ring with her blessing. DS is correct, it was made by Singlestone and yes, their prices have increased significantly. I've never seen Caysie's work in person, but from photos, I do think she could copy this style ring and do an amazing job.
