Only if it takes down the wires when it keels over and the wires fall into the pool. It would make for an interesting day. Your own private display of fireworks.

I love my utility scissors for the kitchen. One day I ran across another pair in a cute little wooden holder with what I thought were a set of steak knives. It was at the Family Dollar store and only $3 so I bought it. It turned out to have 4 different types of knives - boning, small and larger paring and one steak knife.

I have one pair of the utility scissors in a drawer on the left side of my kitchen and one in the wooden holder on the right side - so handy, whichever side of the kitchen you're working on.

I use them for everything from opening mix packets to trimming chicken.

Right now I am so sleepy. But every time I go to lie down, I am wide awake. May I should just sleep in the chair. Something I have never done.

I am so sorry that you are having an ice storm. A person feels so helpless. When my son lived in Littleton, Co. they lost all of their trees. Their sleet was mixed with a heavy wet snow. What a mess.

Happy birthday to SO of Andy! Have a great dinner!

Just got back from the craft store, they had a great deal on polymer clay so I bought a bunch. Unfortunately, when I looked over the register tape when I got home, they didn't ring up the sale price on 8 of them. I called the store, and after a bit of back and forth, they will make it good.

I have a friend who works with polymer clay. What do you do with it?

Jewelry, faces, Santas, dolls and stuff. I haven't done it for awhile, and needed to replenish my clay supply. A girlfriend who also works with it told me of the sale.

What does your friend do with it?
