1. I love my day job, but I'd really like to go to Culinary school. I've decided that I'd like to get into catering.
2. Favourite thing to make is appetizers, the finnickier the better. I find it therapeutic.
3. I'm actually quite shy until I get to know people. then watch out.
4. Born in Montreal, moved out to western Canada, now back closer to home.
5. Have two cats. Silly, short for Druscilla, but she is really silly. Tazzy, short for Tasmanian Devil. She's the brat cat.

I love this thread!

Tell me about this, Alix.

Are the beans maple-flavored? Or do you add stuff to regular coffee?

If the former, where do you get the beans? I would love that!

1. I donít like to sit and try to think of things I like and donít like, but it seems churlish not to after reading all these posts!
2. I do love cooking Ė even when I think Iím not in the mood, things get better if I do it anyway.
3. I love to read and do crossword puzzles.
4. I love to talk to my daughters and watch videos with them.
5. I love my husband, who is so savvy Ė he always knows what to say in difficult situations, and heís a brilliant musician to boot. I donít like that he spits toothpaste in the sink and doesnít rinse it out.

This was fun after all - hate to stop at five.

P.S. to JoAnn L - My daughter has had some frightening experiences with Sleep Paralysis.

VeraBlue I have friends who saw auras as a the onset of migranes. One friend could actually "scare" a migrane away by taking pain meds (Rx strength ibuprofen in her case) and spending awhile in a dark room (like a half-hour to an hour).

It isn't the same as a psychic aura, which is when a person sees an aura around a person, and usually there is some color connected with it. That person (the person who sees auras) can tell something the person they're looking at by the color of the aura. Angry. Sad. Loss. Confusion. Happy. Content.

I've met both types. Thank heaven I don't see auras (and don't have migraines and am not psychic).

Oh, brother. Wound up with two posts after my computer told me the first one didn't "take". Forgive me.
