    Good Morning, MMC!! Well winter has returned here. Those 50’s and 60’s sure were nice while they lasted. I had some plans for today but I think I’m going to cancel them. I was up coughing most of the night so I’m just going to try and take it easy today and hope that it’s not the same virus that has had mom miserable for the last week and a half. I hope everyone has a great day!!

    To Crown, a few years ago there were some members posting 20-40 times per day. Most of them have cut that down or are no longer here. I've participated in multiple message boards on a wide variety of topics for 15 plus years and all of them are down from their peaks many years ago. I think sometimes life just gets in the way.

    Good morning MMC. It was back to work this morning, but a half day tomorrow, off Wednesday, back to work Thursday and another half day Friday. Truthfully I'll be glad when it's Monday January 6 and the schedule gets back to normal.

    It was 49 on the drive int his morning with a predicted high of 61. It's looking like the rain missed us. Low 70s for the weekend. I AM READY for Spring!!

    Enjoy!

    That's the important thing. The wonderful people who post here and what they have to say, however much or however little. Quantity means nothing; our MMC family is everything.

    Thinking of those who are dealing with the ice storm and other wintry weather. We seem to be ducking the worst; we're getting a mix of rain and off-and-on sleet. Further west they're anticipating a dangerous accretion of ice. Be careful if you have to venture out in hazardous conditions!

    Couldn't agree more! I love this site, but probably didn't post for 6 months ... just cause life is busy!

    While there are things that are more difficult than others to forgive, nothing is unforgiveable. In this case it is exceedingly short sighted. Walgreen's picked up unexpected business from me on Christmas Saturday as a result of their boo - boo.

    We had a fine mist most of Sunday. The streets were fine, but the alley was a sheet of ice.:oops:

    I had a nice Christmas pillow on my couch and it matched perfectly, so I left it out to remind me of the joy of Christmas.

    Haven't posted for 7 years and joined in 2012 whilst I was doing a year's work in the US. Doesn't mean I don't read and also appreciate the contributions of those who do and keep the spirit and heart of Christmas close all year around. There isn't another site like this not this side of the pond either. The candle is always faintest just before the new year (for me at least) by mid-January we'll be knocking those milestones down again!

    Good Monday evening! A day of ice pellets, freezing rain and snow accumulation. I think I twisted something while scraping the ice off my car after work. I should ve ok with a little rest. I just came back to work from 3 days off and already I have two more days off. Looking forward to a nice, quiet evening tomorrow with my husband and our dog to ring in the New Year.

    Enjoy your evening everyone!

    A windy, rainy, snowy, sleety day today. The ups and downs of the weather has been matching my mood of late. I found a picture of Ralph, one that was taken during the same session when his official Air Force photo was taken. He has the biggest smile on his face and looks so very happy. I love that photo.

    Over the course of the past year or so, there has been a foot-tall woodpecker in the woods. I've never seen it, although my brother did. I tried tracking it down by sound, but the only woodpecker I ever found that way was a little one, and I do mean little. That bird was so small you could barely see it on the tree branch. The other day I was outside waiting for my sister to come over and I heard a loud knocking in the woods. I was standing on the handicap ramp, looking out into the woods and right on the border of yard/woods, near the path to the pond, was the foot-tall woodpecker. My sister said Ralph was sending me a sign. Nice thought, that. :)

    Praying everyone is safe during the storms and for peace and healing for those in need.
