Strangely enough I have been herevirtually all of the time. I just have not felt the need to post anything. My hole in the belly is being pretty darned good. I am even getting up to a weeks wear on changes. It is funny that I still get a lot of support from all of you without even doing all that much. I am a little fed up though with winter. We have over three feet of snow and it is still snowing right now. It used to be I would be full of joy to see so much powder snow. I was a great skiiier (Alpine) and I got out as much as I could. Now I no longer ski. I could not get up if I fell, and even good skiers sometimes fall. Same thing goes for x-country skiing. Last time I tried to golf, I had to quit after the fifth hole. Mostly because I couldn't get that little white ball more than a foot or so away fraom me. Ah well they call in growing old. Actually been there done that. Love to all of you

Hi Ralph, it is great to hear from you. How are you feeling? Sorry that winter is taking its toll and I hear it is going to get worse before it gets better. Just don't let this cold winter keep you from getting out to vote! And believe me, us Floridians are tired of getting the cold aftermath. I am ready for spring! Have you thought about buying a Wii? Then you can play virtual golf. My husband loves to play this game with the kids on the weekend...and it is cheaper than a round of golf.

Lots of love from your LDS sister!

Slice,

I thought that nothing could make me feel worse than watching the last 2 minutes of the super bowl, that was until I saw the results from Super Tuesday..BOOO HOOO! I am stunk in a melancoly funk. At least I have beautiful weather to brag about...that's something.

Beautful weather. I have to get up around 3:30 in the morning tomorrow because it's supposed to be sleet and ice all night and it might take me forever to get to work.
But feel free to paint a nice sunny picture for me, i'll think about it as i drive about 2 miles an hour tomorrow morning.

I like the cold, i like the snow. I also like our summers in New England.
  The one things i'll NEVER miss, or even experience is the threat of a tornado.
I can't even imagine that feeling. I hope to never even come close.
 My heart goes out to anyone that is put through a tornado.

A little off topic here but I will have to admit that I am absolutely terrified of tornados, even when it is just stormy with wind -- it is the wind that I am afraid of, not the lightening, not the thunder, not the pouring rain...  which is why we have built a tornado room in our new house (which is still under construction)  We are sub contracting a lot of stuff out but also doing a lot of stuff ourselves.  The tornado room is only about 6x6 and is actually located under our front porch -- 3 1/2 sides of poured concrete walls and a small door.  (They were gonna fill it in with gravel anyway so I spoke up and say why?  Can't it be a "safe" room?  Well, sure, was the answer - but we'd have to pour additional walls.  Cost?  The same!  A real no-brainer for me!!!)
 
I may have gone a little overboard, but we are even installing a generator for the times that the power is out - which, btw, is pretty frequently where our new house is located.  We are on the edge of the power grid and the power company is about 45 min away.  Minimum down time is usually a few hours.  (My husband is out of town a lot, and I don't have any family here in this area)  So, we decided to try to cover all bases.
 
I know, off base, but I know others have their fears -- mine is a tornado.  Two years ago, we lost about a dozen 80-100 ft trees surrounding our property to wind.  The expert called it straight line winds. Funny how our trees were blown all different ways tho.  I think it was a tornado.

i am more afraid of fire than anything, but when it comes to storms, thunder scares me most, which i know, that's dumb, it can't hurt you but i still don't like it!
although i am really scared of tornados and such too, i want a basement so bad, or even a hole in the ground!
It makes sense to have a generator, we had a really nice one until someone stole it, but now we only have a small one. And like Peggy, where we live, if the power goes out, it stays out for a long time! my parents and i are the only ones on a transformer. When Hugo (a big hurricane) came through years and years ago, our power was out for 8 days, then came back for two, caught the woods on fire, and then was out for 6 more! and ice storms knock us out too, we stayed in a motel for almost a week during an ice storm. Since we have a well we also don't have water!
Anyway, that is way off topic, lol
