  • OT: What are you getting for Valentines?

    No flowers or candy for me. I am getting a Strongway Garden Seat....The black one that has a back on the seat and two different handles and the seat is padded. My better half said it beat the pellett gun I asked for last year. Of course, he has no idea about the 2 pairs of UGG boots. LOL. girl gotta have shoes. Used to hide them in the trunk of my car until I could sneak them in the house. My daughter ratted me out when she told Daddy to look in Mom's closet and count the shoes. Yikes.

    Hope this isn't TMI but hubby and I are trying to have a baby. A colleague told me that her family tradition is to gift someone trying to conceive with a lemon tree. We're going on three years, so I finally broke down and bought one. It got here today. Fingers crossed, y'all!

      Great luck to you! Is wonderful to hear!


      Sai che il mio profondo desiderio di un figlio
      Un po 'uno di amare e di tenere, di prendersi cura di,
      ad amare. Fa 'che il mio corpo può concepire
      e dare alla luce un bel bambino sano in
      La tua immagine sacra.
      Guidami in tutte le mie scelte in modo che questo
      il concepimento, la gravidanza e la nascita del mio bambino
      sono in linea con la tua volontà.
      Padre Celeste e Madre Santa,
      sentire questa preghiera del mio cuore, mente e spirito.
      Amen.

      Primarily Oahu and the Big Island, we had to cut our trip down from 16 days to the 10 due to my wife's work. Other wise we were going to visit 4 or more islands.

      I talked to Sid about fig hunting in HI, This is what he had to say:

      "Nothing much different from what you see elsewhere. Although the prices are higher, I saw a 8 inch tall, barely rooted Kadota fig plant, in a 2 gallon plastic bag for $48 plus tax. Kadota, brown turkey and magnolia are the only 3 I have seen locally for sale."

              Valentines day was hijacked by Hallmark many years ago. Do we need one day a year to show care and affection for our family and friends?

              Its Valentines day everyday in our house, but I am especially looking forward to tomorrow when I win the PT on Wills competition!


              Happy hallmark card day to all, good luck on tonight's draw.

              Really happy with what I have.

                Deadpool was awesome!!! Definitely flirted with an NC-17 rating, so don't take your kids...but such a good time. Stay through to the end of the credits!

                Here is what I got . Super pleasant and delicate taste, not just sweet but with a nice dose of acidity
