Good MOrning folks.  The joke is on me.   Sleepy eyed look at computer homepage and thought it to be 11F degrees.   Upon closer examination I have 11 emails and it is 28  degrees.  Well that is my good news for the day!   Have a good one.

    Good morning from NE Texas.  It is a chilly 28 degrees here this morning.  Thinking about a warm bowl of oatmeal to take the chill off!

    Happy Saturday!  52 and cloudy here in North Florida.  A day off!   :D  So I can clean, watch the SEC Championship (Go Gators!) and spend some time with Brigit (my K).  Hope everyone has a glorious day!

    60 degrees and sunny on the treasure coast. 

    The plan today is Home Depot Kids Workshop with the grandchildren.  I'm not sure what we're building today, but it's always fun.  Then at noon, granddaughter has gymnastics.  Tonight I'm taking The Mom and grandkids to the park for Chrismas jollity. 

    Another full day.

    Good morning from Houston (today). It is 42 degrees and clear skies. High to reach 64! I will have to go back to NE Texas and  Ginny's 28 degrees this evening. Ginny, I will try and bring some of these warmer Gulf breezes with me!!

    Good morning!  Finishing breakfast and off to the first Holiday party of the season!  I'm doing tech support for the audiovisual presentation, so I've been going over my equipment.  In the way of all public demonstrations, the laptop decided that it needed to start freezing up yesterday.  I decided it was some new software I'd installed and gave up this morning and uninstalled.  Problem solved.  Whew!  Later I'll figure out how to make the software work, but at least the show should be a go!

    Since Betsy, as promised, left the weather report to me:  it's nearly 10 a.m. here in Northern Virginia and a sunny-ish 27F.  Time to get hubby out of bed and have him bring in some firewood.

    I'm getting a late start today, Saturdays are for sleeping in and it's been a long week.  Any way it's 75 and sunny here in Miami.  I need to get ready to go meet someone for lunch.  I finished my Christmas shopping so I have nothing urgent the rest of the weekend except to read.  I love this kind of a weekend.

    Good morning, from Bellingham where it's 47o and rainy.

    Today will be a fun day. I'm heading to BC this afternoon for a pre-Christmas dinner with my mom, dad, brothers and sisters, and their families.

    KindleWidow flies back from Georgia tonight. It will be good to get our home back to normal; time to throw away the pizza boxes and do some serious tidying up.

    And - somewhere in there I have two work-related conference calls, and I have to make mashed potatoes. That's a full Saturday for me.

    A belated good Morning from Western VA!  It's taken me 5 hours to work my way down to this thread.  Enjoying the Army/Navy game here - GO NAVY!  I'll be watching the SEC championship later on also - I'm in a quandary, my Volunteers 2 major rivals are playing and I don't know who to root against!  It should be a rip-roaring game, though.  The REAL National Championship  ;)  I think I'm going to have to root for Alabama so that another SEC team can take the National Championship for the 3rd straight year - SEC football rules!  Now that I've probably enraged half of the football fans on here, I'll shut up now. ::)

    Not at all. It's well known that all teams from Florida should be rooted against.

    I am a big Auburn fan and Bama is our biggest rival but I will be Roll Tide Roll today! I think it is going to be a good game, two great SEC teams playing. What more could a girl want? I have to mention that #85 Preston Dial is my cousin. He is a sophomore and has seen a lot of playing time this year and hopes to be a starter next year.

    Good afternoon all and I am off to make a pot of chili.

    Hey Linda!

    Wow...an Auburn girl going for Bama...who would have thought it possible!  But then you mentioned your cousin...so I can understand.  I am a Gator Girl (graduated from UF in 1989...wow...almost 20 years ago...aaaarrrggghhh!).  I think it will be a good game too...although I mostly like the games where the biggest worry we have is whether the other team will get a touchdown at all.   ;D

    Congrats on the win and being SEC champs Spiritdancer. It was a good game. Let me assure you I was only pulling for Bama because of Preston!

    It's the Holiday Party for one of the organizations I'm in; they made a DVD of the year's activities and wanted to show it.  It is a fun party though!  Late breaking weather report:  It's snowing in northern VA and it was in Annapolis, MD when we left there!
