  1. I saw the newsletter, great fundraising idea but not for me. But dear to Alex's heart to be sure, great initiative. My sister is hosting a family that arrives next week, in Edmonton. It was a very long and detailed process but is finally happening. Lots of friends and family sending money and links for things like getting a library card, applying for this and that, finding social clubs to join - a tonne of work!
  2. Man vs. Bee, Netflix. The subtle brilliance of humanity when faced with unbridled torment and the unwavering determination of... Ahem...fine. It's presented in short Chapters. You can test the waters or binge the whole thing in about an hour. Heck, it felt like a brief vacation with all the craziness lately.
  3. Never was a big fan of the whole franchise, but I think Jon Favreau is a genius and the Mandalorian and the Book of Boba Fett (I had to look up the history of both, not knowing anything about them) are brilliant, IMO. In contrast I found the Obi series rather slow and simple. But I guess Jedis are just that? Slow and wise wins the race?
  4. As mentioned above (but lost in all the pizza love) it should be... SOUP!!
  5. I voted for "Hiding it under the table". Some days very busy Mom would spread some liverwurst on pumpernickel and set it down for a quick lunch. Some times it just wasn't going down well. We hid the breads under the piano. One major cleaning day the furniture was pushed around and under the piano were small curled dried up things. Not a spanking day, but grounded and no toys for, what seemed like, forever.
  6. Any chance yet to see the multi-planet line up before sunrise these days? The moons of Jupiter are apparently very visible. "Before sunrise" is obviously very early to be up, but curious!
  7. I would wager a dollar on that bet, Rhyta, but I think you might be right. And by the looks of pompoms and popcorn you are hunkering down for the kill!
  8. I feel your enthusiasm. But honestly, to win two more in a row and still win in a tie? Maybe, just maybe, if it were the Leafs ( ) LOL... We shall soon find out!
  9. Yikes! Hang in there and you might not be the only people to still have a waterbed, but congrats of the bragging, and goodness, what an ordeal! Glad you seem to be recovering.
  10. I am guessing you did not eat that for dinner. At 33 feet, it might fit into a human intestine, but the chewing? It would exhaust the most enthusiastic chewer. For sure.
  11. Sorry I missed this, welcome to the Forums Time Stood Still
  12. I guess I am not quite done with this journey. I don't know exactly what to say, but I still feel the need to say something. Thank you to her friends (and family?) on the Forums who helped those of us who were strangers but felt connected in some way. All the loving posts and encouraging thoughts, and so public yet so respectful and honest. You all are great folks I need to say thank you, again, for joining us all together. It seems short, now, but during those months it felt long and a daily question of "Who wrote something today?", "Will she reply today?". So, yes life moves on. I just feel that I need to say, out loud, that it was a very emotional and courageous thing to do - sharing one's painful trip to the other side. I am sure we all hope that the wind is still filling her sails and the horizon is full of wonderful memories and funny Rush stories. Keep sailing away, Lorraine, sail away to wherever you want. You are free.
