No, I am not familiar with Kim Williams...at all...I am aware that she is someone of interest, but not sure why. I've walked along the trail named for her several times.
Kim was on National Public Radio and also wrote a column in the Missoula papers. I think you would like her book Kim Williams book of uncommon sense.

Have a great day, or night

Yes, I just read about her quickly on the UofM site. I'll be looking for her books. I'm really interested in the edible mushroom one.

i posted on the venting thread about the garbage men splitting open bags of garbage in front of my house, telling my wife they were too heavy. i carried them out to the curb from the backyard garden - one in each hand, so that's ridiculous. ok, they were heavy, maybe 40 lbs max each, but gimme a break.

so, i had to clean it up before the street sweeper came or get a ticket.
i decided to break them up into about 20 little food shopping bags, and made a long line along the curb for them to pick up.
dw wouldn't let me put a sign on them saying i hoped these were small enough for you ladies...

they took them in order, down the block...

Our team managed to make over $10,000 in donations, thus arriving at Platinum Level. My Mother's name was read in Celebration and my DIL's in Memory. It was a good night.
Way to go!!!!!

I am so glad my job description change and work schedule change allowed me to personally participate this year, it's lots more fun than just handing over a little cash once a month.

That's fantastic! Congrats to you.

I had a really happy start to my day this morning at 4xx a.m. I signed on to Firefox and clicked on "Favorites". It was back! FF fixed it! Yesterday or day before my colorful tabs were fixed.

If only they'd get Yahoo compatible I'd be ecstatic.
