This is such an amazing photo HMG! The first thing I thought was this should be submitted somewhere and then I saw the Halloween photo contest posted this morning. You have my vote!

They didn't know anything about any installation---they were only delivery guys. We called up to find out what was going on, and got bounced to another number, and another, and another---we spoke with five different offices, and they all swore that we never ordered or paid for installation, in spite of the receipt we were looking at.

Long story short, the guy who rang up the sale when we bought the cooktop did it wrong and didn't enter the installation properly. So now we have a boxed cooktop (which may be damaged due to the delivery guys' rough handling---but they told us not to worry, the merchant would have to replace it if it's broken...!) monopolizing our kitchen floor until an undetermined time window on Saturday, when it will finally be installed (for a few hundred dollars more, of course). Arghhhhh ... We WILL be visiting the local store and speaking to a manger about a certain sales associate who badly needs remedial training.
How very frustrating! I hope the manager will be apologetic and hope it can all be sorted out soon.

Good morning everyone! I hope that everyone is well after Halloween night. ^^ It's Friday today, and it seems that we are going to have a sunny and clear day here today. Yay! I'm getting ready to go to the campus for my lectures but somehow I don't expect where will be lots of us today. (I've heard there were massive parties arranged last night at student halls so...) Have a nice Friday everyone. Weekend is almost here! ^^

Good Morning, Formerly Frightened Friends of Friday.


Yes, Halloween is over and so is October.
Today, we begin the highly special month of November.

And need I tell you why it's so special -- in particular to those of us MMC'ers in the know? You know -- us Countdown Threaders.

Well, the numbers just might give us a clue:
Days to the Season: 12 (Near SINGLE DIGITS!)
Days to Thanksgiving: 27 (UNDER 4 weeks away, now!)
Days to Christmas Day: 54 (Drawing ever nearer by the day.)

And if that isn't quite enough to get you excited, just take a look at one more vital statistic:
Days until the Special Post Series begins: 7
ONE WEEK FROM TODAY!
(November really is special, isn't it?)


One more day of summer-like conditions before Fall begins to reassert itself.
It was windy last night and we might get some rain today.
Right now, we record a surprisingly warm 68 degrees here in NC.


Have a Fabulous Friday, Folks.
And a Wonderously Wacko Weekend Eve to boot!

It's November; Yeaaaaaaaa!!!! And today is also my son's (Zach's), 21st birthday today.

Needless to say, based upon his plans, (which I must add here, I tried to talk him out of), will most likely, result in him having his head either stuck in a bucket, or a toilet bowl late tonight....

At least the group of them are getting a cab~
