Quick drive by-

Nah I volunteer at it-5th year as Aisle ambassador - have 6-7 teams I shepherd through the day, collect money from the tip jars, tickets for people choice chili and generally help solve issues that come up. Our local sertoma clubs put it on every year-this is year 39. I am Chairman for our local women only club (president last year).

And DD just called to say she got accepted to her 3rd DCP! Was very quick this time, she was hoping not to hear for a couple weeks-at least until after Seattle in 2 weeks to see if it would work to defer grad school until january or march (the school is on the quarter system). But her friend she persuaded to apply also got in! She's excited for him too. She is gonna have a some hard decisions to make very very soon.

ack I need to work and stop procrastinating!!

Hellos to all the SANS peeps!!!
Congrats to your DD!

I’m thinking of the lemon meringue pie this morning
OOOHH, YUM!
Just saw on the news 2 more planes landed at our airport this morning, supposedly with folks from the quarantined cruise ship this time.
Too close to home.......
It is really sad to see what's happening in China. I've been keeping an eye on it and watching video from people who are in Wuhan. I'm wondering what the status in the US will be when we travel in May.
There was a suspected case in a hospital south of us. A college student who returned from winter break. Thankfully, he tested negative.
Now, feet up and some tv for me.......and big mug of tea......
Have a relaxing evening!
I do love the longer days, but hate time change. There’s been lots of talk about entire west coast going on 1 time. From British Columbia to California. But so far it’s just talk. I think the hold up is that the US states have to get federal approval, so that takes awhile.
That's interesting...I didn't know that. I do like the summer evenings outside, but yes the time change can be rough the first week or so.

And DD just called to say she got accepted to her 3rd DCP!
Congratulations! That's exciting!

Sorry if I'm missing anyone.....I have one eye on supper that I'm cooking! Today was busy and DD's boyfriend is coming for dinner and movies tonight so I'm a little distracted.

Hope everyone is well!

Wow! Heels, scary maybe sick people flying in, annoying people work, a big Woot! for DCP hired kids, Yay! a birthday trip to Orlando, Yay! a birthday trip to Mexico, some chili cooking, dinner and a movie with family, and a hi from Tink. So enjoy reading posts from the SANS family.

Lunch was with older one, so it’s a what for dinner, since we are stuffed from lunch.

Nice day, high is 50, and mostly sunny. No matter, back to work Tuesday will see rain. But hey, enjoying this day off.

Hope all are having a marvelous Monday.

    Good evening everyone. i think I am heading to bed soon. I can't stop yawning.
    Work today was busy despite having several clients call out sick. I need a day when I don't have to deal with phone calls so I can concentrate on catching up other stuff.

    I’m thinking of the lemon meringue pie this morning
    I love lemon meringue pie, but have never been able to make it. I can never get my meringue to set properly.

    Hi Tink!

    I keep meaning to send her a note to remember use the sunscreen
    Several years ago we were in FL in the fall and realized we forgot to pack sunscreen. We went to Kmart, but couldn't find any. We found an employee and asked. He said that he thought they didn't have it anymore since it was a seasonal item. We were in Miami and it was sunny and 80+ degrees outside. Not really sure why he thought they didn't need to sell sunscreen in the sunshine state.

    I didn’t know that about Mike Nesmith! Wow.
    This is from a very short lived Mike Nesmith TV show called Television Parts. Watch to the end.

    Charade- we both have too many of those sleepless nights, ugh. Have you tried Melatonin and Magnesium? I’m finding it helpful. Can’t remember if I mentioned it before. So if I had, sorry!
    I've tried melatonin, but it didn't seem to do much. Do you take the melatonin and magnesium together?

    They had a plane arrive a week or so ago with 57 people going to a reserve base just outside of town about 20-30 minutes and we have a med center that is setup for this type of stuff I guess.

    They go to the base for 2 week quarantine, today though I believe it was 6 people that came off and are going directly to the med center and will be quarantined there under care.
    This is so scary. Just out of curiosity, where do you live?

    And DD just called to say she got accepted to her 3rd DCP!
    Congrats to her.

    Time to try to get some sleep.

    Charade....think you quoted me with someone else`s words.....I never said that about Mike Nesmith. Hope you got a good sleep.

    mac....I love meringue......I make two types....the chewy type for other desserts, and the softer fluffier one for lemon meringue pie.....haven't made that in so long.

    mrose…..hope supper was good! We love having folks over for dinner......

    Keisha.....hope the trip has been a good one!!!




    Sunny, windy, rainy and cold with milder spells here......yep, and all in an hour. Can`t make up it`s mind what it`s going to be doing today.

    Plain old meatballs tonight…..well, maybe with an added something or other, probably spicy......made the sauce this morning.

    Had a request for more cherry scones, so will do that later...

    Have a great Tuesday...…..

    474680 Not a big fan of pie, but I do enjoy a lemon meringue one. Bus leaving for Mac's place. See, Mac's offer: 1582023628444.png Thanks Mac. I do know how to make that pie, but now a days, I tend to buy. Around the holidays is when I make pie, or when the oven needs keep me warm in my small kitchen.


    And yes, homies: 474682
    and yeah, for some of us homies: 474683 and some homies also say: 474684


    Thus, with this Tuesday, there needs to be the weather report. Mild enough day, say the weather guy, with random showers, so while some will be damp, most will have a cloudy, but dry enough day. Gee, I get to play the rain roulette again. But with the warmer weather, rain is welcome. A bit cooler, and snow. Though I have to say, 37 out commute was not what I consider mild weather conditions. Dry roads though, and dark, so not much moonlight to see.

    And so appropriate for MonyK, Schumi, and our other wine drinking homies. Today is: 474685.

    So, Happy Tuesday all! And lest I forget,474686 Oh yes it is, the day of the week, Mac does her Taco Bell run. Get your orders in, and maybe she'll be making pie, so be hungry.

    Oh, I so need tea. Ever so cool enough inside, the heater is already blasting, and well, third cup of tea is ready. Oh boy, but yeah,474687 :thumbsup2

    :wave2: Good Morning and Good Afternoon homies.

    Thanks for the well wishes, @Robo56. As @macraven said you definitely are good at keeping track and really taking the time it seems to read everything through. I'm not that great of a good noodle when it comes to reading everything. It wasn't my strong suit growing up.

    It seems a couple of the homies either were, or currently now in the dark side which is great. I haven't been in awhile, or at least my version of "awhile". Been taking care of shipping back equipment and getting a little bit distracted, but now time to focus on class work today. No excuses!

    Yesterday went to Gainesville to go to the college in order to speak to someone about meta tagging/properties for digital archiving for the several projects my dad and I are working on. As well as find more information about a relative of mine Fred Francis.

    I hope everyone had a good weekend and President's Day who celebrate that. Happy Taco Tuesday, homies! Hope today is a great one.

    Nice photo bomb picture, @schumigirl! :laughing:

    Another quick good morning. I overslept a little today.

    My husband sort of has family there.


    Charade....think you quoted me with someone else`s words.....I never said that about Mike Nesmith. Hope you got a good sleep.
    I have no idea how that happened. I was supposed to be quoting Sue.
    Great photobomb pic.

    Speaking of pie - pi day is coming up next month. I think I will make an apple pi(e).

    First batch of cherry and coconut scones cooling.....

    Don`t normally take pictures of food or baking over here, but my friend who the scones are for wanted a picture of them.....think she`s checking they`re good enough to sell tonight at her event tonight. Three more batches to go.

    I might have made enough for us to have some too...….:rolleyes1








    Glad we had no plans this afternoon. Rain is bouncing down and it`s black as night out there......

    Yes, National Wine Drinking Day is here.....favourite one of those National Days!!! Pie Day, not so much......I do like some pies, especially home made Dutch Apple Pie.....but prefer a glass of wine!

    Schumi- nice photo bomb!

    Dix- sounds like you’re going to be pretty busy for awhile!

    Charade- hope you got some sleep! I think I’ve done that, quote wrong person! Don’t know how that happens either!

    Mac- thanks for the pie invite! Do you make Key Lime ::yes:: Enjoy your tacos today!

    Lynne happy wine day! :drinking1

    Yesterday was our new holiday, Family Day! It started 3 or 4 yrs ago. But for the retired, can’t get too excited about it lol. I got more excited when I was working! It was nice having my daughter home though. All I did was go out to do some errands. Home Depot.

    Today I’m going to start laying out clothes I want to pack for Mexico. Leaving early Friday. Also have to do some grocery shopping for daughter so she’s stocked up on stuff she wants while we’re away.

    :wave: everyone and thank you so much for the birthday wishes:goodvibes. Thank you for all the kitty wishes:D. We are looking to start his treatments tomorrow. He is on steroids right now and is eating good. He needs to put weight on!

    It has been a busy few days. Sunday I actually started packing up wall hangings so that Brian could start prepping and painting the walls. It felt very weird to pack my stuff up we have been here for 20 years. We are ready to move on!!!

    Yesterday we took the teens to our local casino to play video bingo. I haven't played in years and really had enjoyed it. This was what I wanted to do for my birthday. We gambled a bit, ate a really nice buffet then lost at bingo. Everyone had fun and that was what matters.

    This weekend I was looking at my google feed and I noticed that Universal had an article in a paper that they are hiring 1,500 people for the new park. I was browsing for me then decided to look for Brian. I couldn't believe it I found a job that would be perfect for him and he had just about all the qualifications. He quickly applied and yesterday he got an email that he passed the first round and will now send his application to a hiring manager:woohoo:, we are so excited. Just keeping every part of our body crossed.

    We had a rainy cool day will have dry weather tomorrow and a little warmer.

    Schumi your scones look delicious, I love blueberry ones but have never made them myself. Glad that you had a nice lunch with your friend the other day. I don't get out as much but when I use to do a girls lunch out it was great! I hope the bad weather stays away.

    Mac hope you had a good taco Tuesday! Thank you for all that you do for the SANS thread and the others. We know you are thinking about us! Lemon Meringue pie sounds nice!

    Sue I hope you have a great trip to Mexico. We went once about 23 years ago! Wow, time flies. We enjoyed it very much especially the ruins and the sink holes. I hope you get everything done!

    Charade Sorry to hear about your sleeping, I have the same issue. I have tried different things. I usually take magnesium and night but I think I will try the melatonin with it. I hope work goes a little easier on you.

    Robo that was so nice that they invited you to go with them and score PBH even better. It sounds like they had a nice visit at your home too. Happy Belated Anniversary I hope you had a great night.

    Monykalyn being involved in the chili cookoff sounds cool! Congrats to your DD and good luck with the decisions.

    Mrose I hope you had a nice dinner and movies with your DD and boyfriend. I don't know if my two will ever leave for me to invite them over:laughing:.

    Lynne Hope you had a nice day off and what better way then to spend it with DD. I know it is so hard to decide dinner after a big lunch. Hope you had a good day back to work.

    Disxuni Hopefully you were able to concentrate on school, I hear the same thing from Liv. Working on projects with your dad sounds fun, I hope the school was able to help you.

    Keisha even after all that I hope you are had a great trip and safe travels! I can't wait to try RoR. Thanks for sharing with us!

    Buckeev I hope you get some more time for you and your wife. I know how hard it is to take care of parents. Your birthday trip sounds awesome and just what you need.

    :wave: to all the SANS family I missed or who isn't able to post. I hope everyone is having a great night!
