Is celiac just no wheat? Can you do cornmeal/cornbread? I don't add any wheat to my cornbread.

Have no clue what my TBR list is like (scared to try to find out). I have stopped using those book services that give you a daily list of books that are either free or very low cost. I'm not getting through what I've got already.

And I see nothing in this month's First Reads that attracts me either.

Oh, gosh, I can take a long route to just say that I would have loved to have been able to accept, but my husband and I are long past the degree of fitness we would need to sell physical products. We get all our needs delivered to us these days. :-).
I totally understand! DH & I will be there before we know it.  :-*

What a delightful way to discover the parts of boards where I've never been before. :-) ...
And, I'm delighted to have found your work. Will be ordering a phone case (Wallaby Hop) for a dear friend who loves Australia. She'll be visiting in September, for the 4th or 5th time (can't quite remember).

I will be getting a darling Australian Labradoodle soon (bred in the US, not us Australia  ;)) and wondered whether, if I get a pic of her/him that I really love, would you do a commission piece?

So, thinking of either Bandwidth or An American Princess. Anyone got any reactions?

Ah yes. Night time potty breaks! I have my fingers crossed that st 9.5 weeks s/he might just sleep through

One word to the wise: crate training

I am really excited for you.
THANKS! We're excited too.
But also pretty nervous. Haven't had a puppy since 2004 & philosophies have changed so much. Plus, I'm not at home nearly as much. This pup is going to be 'raised' at my office with all my co-workers. That will be fine, except for the potty training.

Since the families are spread pretty much all over the southwest, what she's going to do is, after we've met the puppies, each of us is to submit our #1,2,3 choices. That way, it won't matter when we see the puppies on the actual 'meet & greet' weekend of April 28/29.
Then, she'll look at our choices in the order that we actually get to pick (based upon when we paid our deposit).

Since we aren't traveling over on that weekend, she's doing a couple of Facetime events with us. One today & I think one on the 28/29 weekend. I would guess shortly after the 29th we'll know which one is to be ours. My DD & I drive to Flagstaff & pick him up on Mother's Day.

She's got a FB page & has some pics & a couple of videos posted up there. She slacked off a bit this past week because of a family matter.

The pups were 4 weeks old this past Tuesday.

So, we're having our first "Meet & Greet" the puppies this afternoon via Facetime. We'll have another in 2 weekends.
We thought a lot about whether to travel from Albuquerque to Flagstaff in 2 weeks when the breeder is having a weekend for families that want to actually to to her place, but in the end we decided not to do this. We think we can see just fine by video & are willing to take her skill & knowledge to guide us through the choosing.

We will get first pick of the males. They are all so cute, in the end I don't think it will really matter. He'll be chocolate colored with some white patches.

Names in the running:
  Justice (I'm a legal aid lawyer)
  Murtagh (I'm fiendish about Outlander)
  Cinnamon (a spice I love)
  Shaash (Navajo for 'Bear'; our dear departed golden retriever's name)
  Chaco (we live in NM)
  Harlan (County; I loved the TV series Justified)
  Fresco (just sounded kind of interesting)

Since I never reread books 4 and after, this is all going to be new to me.
I find it very interesting how we each reacted to the books.
For me, each one I could not wait for it to be released & would immediately buy the audiobook version, because I so love Davina Porter's reading.
The only one that really dragged for me & I find difficult to re-read is #4 Drums of Autumn. There's just so much trouble in that one book.
If they do the whole book in one season, it will be very interesting to see what they use & what they skip.

I found a "page" on YouTube called Legendary Vocals
It features some truly amazing artists.

Peter Hollens is one of the artists.
The group Home Free & Tim Foust are another.

Some favorites:
Amazing Grace - absolutely stupendous
The always-will-be-missed Leonard Cohen's HALLELUJIA
Simon & Garfunkle, Parsely Sage Rosemary & Thyme
Loch Lomond (fabulous example of "overlaying" renditions)
The Sound of Silence
Home Free - Ring of Fire

Sorry, got a little carried away - always do when I listen to Peter Hollens!

Here's a seven-year-old Ricky Skaggs playing with Flatt & Scruggs in 1961.  Lester Flatt gets his name wrong; he calls him "Ricky Skraggs."  Lol...

Fabulous - glad I caught this!

This afternoon, I'm mostly embracing my inner Canadian, with Gordon Lightfoot's Greatest Hits.
He is truly one of the GREATS!

Glad to hear the update. Will the breeder provide you with pictures as they puppies grow? When will a puppy be tagged as yours?
Pictures are being posted on the breeder's Facebook page - lots of fun
Don't yet know whem she'll have us start choosing.

My favorite is roasted vegetables with Polenta. I love a combination of cauliflower, broccoli and carrots, but you can use any veggies you like. I roast them with a bit of olive oil, fresh garlic and salt and pepper. Make the Polenta while the veggies are roasting. Toast Panko bread crumbs with a bit of garlic and butter in a sauté pan. Add lemon zest. Serve Polenta topped with roasted veggies, panko crumbs and toasted pine nuts. Yum!😋
That sounds pretty yummy!

I'm excited for you.  You have lots of time to get ready for the little guy.  I have only have golden/doodles, but neighbor had labradoodle. They are smart and goofy and very sweet.

puppies were born this past Tuesday (3/13); 9 in the litter, 4 females, 5 males. We are #5 on the pick list & the first 4 all reserved females, so we'll be getting a male.
We went with a breeder of multi-generation Australian Labradoodles, parents are both in the 50-55 pound range. So he'll be a good size (our male Golden Retriever was 80-85 pounds, so this will still be smaller for us).

Go home date is Mother's Day weekend. they are all chocolate colored, a few with some small white markings.
Now in search of a great male/gender-neutral name.

Really excited!!!  :P  :P  :P

Oh, my. Bouton is definitely not going to be a purse dog.

The little guy I just got from the shelter weighs eight pounds at two years old. He was a stray and the vet wants him to gain three pounds. His poor little tummy can't hold much right now so I'm feeding him small meals several times a day.
awwww <3  (kboards needs a heart emoji!)

Bouton sounds perfect for a labradoodle. Congrats on the new puppy.
Yeah, after I remembered him, I am thinking that sounds like a good match  ;D ;D (even though this dog will probably be in the 50-60 pound range).
