We very seldom have snow, maybe every two or three years for a day or two.
Please send me some if you get extra, not too much or we'll be sure to lose power.

Snowing today, which was nice to lift my spirits. Can't stop tearing up thinking about CT shooting. Hug your loved ones, even your four legged ones.

Stan, I thought I was reading a letter from the USA. Washington State just legalized recreational pot. It's still a federal crime but our president announced that it was too petty for the federal government to waste its time on. I suppose now there will be pot and paraphernalia stores popping up all over. Oregon voted a similar proposition down but we already have a huge problem with medical marijuana abuse.

Ordinarily I would say that this forum is no place to post about family problems but perhaps this will take your minds of the school tragedy.

Good evening everyone

Sad to hear about what happened in CT, he got his 5 minutes in the spotlight.....if the news would stop broadcasting/rewarding these bloody psychos maybe they would think twice.....unfortunatly in today's society it's all about getting a reaction be it negative or positive, the crazies don't care.

Vote at 16....thats BS wth did I know at 16....absolutly NOTHING, drinking at 18, well that's the law we have here, I never knew any different lol, and I did not turn into an alcoholic.

We have issues here in Quebec as well, the bloody french seperatist usual BS, I keep threatening my hubbie that we will move to Ontario lol. I give it 2 more years and we will be moving there


Stan: hope its going well with your new boy.

Grace: Fantastic!! Love it when everything just comes together, i'm so glad for you that you and Kes are gelling so well, cannot wait to see how you do at next years shows

Nothing new on the home front, lots to do at work, it's high season in the hair industry, I make time at the end of my day to get my 20-30 (min) with my sassy girl. She still gets ridden 4 times a week, 3 by me once by my trainer.

I am looking for a good dressage saddle, nothing expensive, not going all out until she's full grown, she has a year and a bit left. Anyone have any suggestions as to what brand is good? I have a thorowgood GPD, and I tried the tekna dressage saddle 17 inch fits me perfectly. I'm thinking of maybe a Kieffer Wein, i'm 5'3 and read that its a good saddle for us shorties

Well off to rot my brain in front of the TV. TCA =)

Ordinarily, I would say that this forum is not the place to post about relationship problems but perhaps this will take your minds off the school tragedy.

I belong to a country church in the middle of ranch country. Our pastor asked me to lead our Thursday night bible study. I am sure my mother rolled over in her grave, not necessarily from disapproval but from disbelief. (My adult children didn't believe it either.) Evidently, he saw the error of his ways because after going through Galatians and Acts he took control of the study again.

Anyway, we have about 20 souls that attend the study. Two members are Jack and his wife Dorthy. Jack is silver haired with a drooping mustache. Dorthy is a plump little woman with straight white hair. Jack works in one of the local Dairies. They used to be a somber couple, seldom smiling. Then both of them showed up with brand new dentures. Dorthy hasn't stopped smiling since while Jack doesn't wear his except for special occasions, kind of like putting on a tie.

Jack often falls asleep during bible study. He works long and varied hours. One of our church members, an old rancher was in the hospital. At the beginning of the study a few weeks ago the pastor announced that the old fellow had passed away that very day. After Bible study we have a prayer and then time for desert and talk. Well, Jack woke up in time for desert and the first thing he said was, "Does anyone know how Frank is doing?" I replied, "It depends on your point of view."

We have been going to bible study now for two years. Jack and Dorthy seldom miss a study but neither is a participator in the sense that they do not input or ask questions. I had not heard Jack make a contribution in two years. We are presently in the book of Judges. Sampson was born under a lifetime Nazarite vow wherein he could not cut his hair, eat anything unclean or touch anything dead. But Sampson was a rebel. He kills a lion and later when passing by notices a swarm of bees has taken up residence inside the carcass. He scoops out the honey and takes it to his parents. Somehow, during the study this became twisted into a discussion of the morality of marijuana use and in a moment of lucidity Jack asked if it is a sin to use the weed. Then he somewhat defensively compared marijuana to the evils of alcohol. I think it made the rest of us wonder if maybe he had inhaled or was still inhaling.... but not wishing to endanger his promise of eternal life was seeking pastoral guidance.

Last Thursday we were discussing violence and how everything had changed when Jack popped up once again, "It wasn't like this when I was young," he said. "When I was growing up you never heard a woman breaking wind. Now you can't go anywhere without hearing women breaking wind."

After the laughter subsided I said, "I know exactly what you mean Jack. I noticed the same thing around my house."

I was surprised that it took my bride three days to make a comment. Then tonight at the dinner table she said, "BY THE WAY...." There was talk about separate bedrooms and such. I replied that I didn't think it was a proper dinner topic. I've since realized that she hasn't been helping with the paddock cleaning lately.

Oh, eliduc, you made me laugh. Thank you. I love those characters from your Bible study. And, you should know by now that you don't get jabs on your wife during a Bible study. You know what they say about paybacks! After all, she's got highly placed connections!
