Hi!
I had a great weekend, but it was much to short... I wasn`t able to talk to everyone I wanted... so many friends...
I must admit, a weekend with 60 women is very very exhausting (even if it was placed in a Wellness Hotel , Im glad I don`t have to go to work tomorrow... but it was just GREAT!!!

Hi! I'm glad you had a good time Cara! I got to go to a women's retreat this summer, and it was wonderfully refreshing, both physically and spiritually.

HI!
Day 2 of the Agritechnica exhibition! Yesterday was just great, met many people, known and new faces, but I really enjoyed meeting Mike from Canada! Today I'll have to meet Franks boss from Coventry, UK... hope I'll understand him...

Hi! So, how did it go Cara?

I talked to my sister yesterday. She said my nephew, who had his arm ripped off in an accident in Iraq, and reattached, is doing pretty well. He is having another surgery because they attached a muscle wrong, and he is having some back problems, but he is alive and able to use the arm, so over-all he is doing well. He will leave the Army in December,and he is still planning to go to culinary school to become a chef. He wants to be a chef on a cruise ship.

HI!
Iwould do it, Maidrite!!BTW, do you still want the movies? Cause I don't have your address if you do
Anyone interested can give their mailing info to the Admins and we can list 5 things under $10? on a thread just for this. Or do we just buy something that we think they would like?
The admin that takes the addresses can pick the names for everyone and then email the address and name that was picked for each person? Would that be too much work for them, you think?

Go ahead, start a thread and ask everyone.

Hi! How about we do something regional? Something that would let the recipient have some idea about where we live?

Hi! Yes, another group I belong to did something similar to that. It could say Texas or it could just be something that is special to the area. For instance, for mine, it could say South Carolina on it, or it could have watermelons on it, since my town is (one of many) Watermelon Capital of the World.
