Hello all! Glad you liked the squirrel. I took that from my dining room window. He just looked so cute there. Snowing today and yesterday, and tomorrow. Went to Lander last night with hubby to watch high school basketball. A car in front of us hydroplaned, and went off. It was scary. The roads were black ice. I drow 40 mph all the way home. Took 45 mins or more to get back. I tell ya, it would be nice if the linear post were brighter, and they had a marquee about the road conditions. Will complain shortly. Well other than that still hibernating. Take care all, and love all the pictures on Cam 5.

Phillis, I hope you get your kitchen fixed. Annette, it is always a good idea to have a back up heat source, can\'t always relie on manmade material. Wood burning stoves are still necessary.



Love and Hugs,

Steph

The kitchen work is at a stand still. The contractor didn\'t show up for work yesterday. I\'m not happy.

So glad you have time to visit with Franka. Sounds as though your school systems are quite tough.

Saw the robin again and noticed the grass is a little green. All of the snow has melted away now. We are due for severe thunderstorms this evening, threats of tornadoes in the air. This is our typical spring weather. The hubby has cleared the cellar in case of tornado so we will have shelter. Nature provides variety here.

Franka is here for some days. There\'s a break for the students for about two weeks and then there are some exams to pass and after that another short break. So I will see her more often in the next few weeks. Robert also had to pass an exam this week. It was the first one of a row of exams that will follow in April and May. He will be ready with school in June and will have the certificate of qualification for university matriculation (same as Franka) but will probably work a year before he goes to university. We will see...

I hope Mr Mies won\'t forget the important day tomorrow while pheasant hunting. Mies wasn\'t here for a long time. I bet she tries to take part in the Winter Olympics.

I\'m gone. Enough space wasted here.

Pat, due to the weather here around the buildings are generally equipped with a central heating based on gas or oil or use heat from a district heating network. Many new built houses use geothermal energy or solar power systems. To heat the house just with electricity would be much too expensive. But, of course, Florida usually has quite other temperatues. I wonder what systems are used with Jane in Alaska.

Phillis, I hope your kitchen work is on a good way and will be ready soon.

Liz, I really have a list of places that I want to visit once. Many people just say they want to see other places but never travel. But, believe me, I WILL DO IT. And there\'s a line on my \'to-visit-list\' that says \'Australia\'. I really want to see your beautiful country but I\'m honest it is not in the first place. It will take another while but it would be fun to meet you there.

By the way... my list says: \'2011/USA\'. So, all American GBers, be warned. hehehehe I could start right away but of course, I have to be considerate of Mr A\'s wishes and he often thwarts my plans. *sigh*

Hello everybody, after a long dreary period we had the first sunny day today with a beautiful blue sky and a light (very light) breeze of warm air. The temperatures rose above freezing point and the snow started to melt. The first time after eight weeks of cold and frost and snow. And guess what I did? ...yes, I was out in my garden to look for the first work that I could do with the piles of snow that are still left. And as I\'m not that tall I thought I could use a ladder to be over \'snow-level\'. hehehe That means I started to cut my apple tree back. I usually do that during January/February so that it is ready when the first buds come out in March. I always wonder how strong plants are. There are tiny spots where the snow is already gone and you see the bare ground and there are the first leaves yet though the ground is still frozen and hard. I miss to be out in the garden though I was pretty tired.

I had to take my little truckie to handsome Bob the Mechanic this morning to have the oil changed. All you ladies will be glad to hear that he is very well, and still handsome.

He and I were talking about what a cold winter we\'ve had here, and how high electric bills have been because of it, and he told me that during the day he turns off the central heat in his house, turns on the fan in the central system and burns logs in his fireplace, and the fan circulates the warmth through the house via the vent system. Then he turns the electric heat back on at night, so that when the logs are burned down, the electric heat kicks in again.

Cont.

That is very clever, and I\'m going to try something like that with my gas fireplace, as it is much less expensive to get the same amount of heat with propane than to heat with electric. I just need to know where the return air vent returns air to. Just thought I\'d pass that on to y\'all, in case you might benefit by it. You\'re welcome.

It\'s back to work now, my lunch break is over.

enjoyed those cleeks, Webbie. Thank you. Take Care, Everybody.

Nice squirrel shot, Steph. Mr. Mies is right, it\'s important to take care of our wild critters, or we lose them. I just read that the population of the Australian Koala Bear in the wild has declined in the last 6 years from 100,000 to 43,000, and there are now several diseases rampant in the current population, including some kind of koala AIDS, but the goverment won\'t fund even any studies of it until late 2010. I\'m not sure of the reasons why, but it seems to me that since koalas are a big tourist attraction... they are such unique critters...that making sure Australia has a healthy population of them should be a government priority. However, I don\'t know what other economic problems the country is facing at the moment which might take precedence.

Hah, Stephanie, that\'s a funny hidden-image puzzle on Cam5.

I like that song \'Hard times...\'. And the performances are great, too. Just googled the lyrics to understand it completely. Thanks, Webbie.

I\'m nearly on my way to work. Will be a long working day.

I hope Treasa and Mar and Mick (and Mrs Mick) are okay all. I miss them.

Have a nice Friday all and a good start into the weekend.

Back at my own desk today. Pasco was a nice break, but very busy there. It\'s mainly a agricultural area, with lots of vineyards, orchards, & food crops. It\'s a lot warmer there than here & the farmers are all waiting to get back in the fields. Kind of fun working on all the newer ag equipment that we are selling now though.

I stopped on the way home at a local store that has all local gourmet food, pickles, salad dressings, mustard, hot sauce, & fresh salsa etc. I could have spent an hour there & a lot more money than I did. It\'s website is countrymercantile.com. It had our favorite salad dressing Walla Walla Sweet Onion Ranch. Delicious

Mornin\'...

Good Night, Liz.

Hi, Jane from Alaska. You had your pancakes yesterday, then. I did too. There is a quick & easy crepe recipe made with Bisquick, you can do it as quickly as you can make a sandwich for lunch. Google to find it.

A Scottish Terrier went best of show at Westminster, beat out the Whippet after all. I fell in love with a gorgeous Afghan Hound, though, I like the Affies, but they are a lot of bother to take care of.

You are forever combing that long coat.

Cont.

Weather here is warming, we\'ll have almost 70F by Saturday Now that\'s good gardening weather.

Thank you for the good cleeks today, Webbie. A nice variety. I never woke up yesterday until I popped in from my office and played the Eric Claptons...that\'ll do it! Preston in the next office was rocking out, too. Livened up the whole first floor.

I\'ve got errands to run today, and a birthday dinner in Thomasville this evening, so I\'ll be burning up the roads in the little truckie. I hope y\'all have a good day.

Pat

Webbie, what a nice row of great cleeks. Mr A couldn\'t stop listening all the Clapton & Beck pieces. He besieged my laptop for more than an hour and I had to chase him away now. I liked Tommy Fleming, too but Pat is right, his music is nice and soft and you have to be in the mood for that. What great artists there are in Ireland. I always wonder how such a small country can bear so many good musicians. Thanks for the picture on the Cam. *sigh* ...reminds me of the warm days in Spain last summer. Here around, we still shudder in the cold.

I had some pretty cr*ppy days this week. So, no more comments today. I\'m not sure what I will create when I write a longer post. Franka will be here tomorrow and make my day. I will feel better then.
