http://www.mercantilebk.com/photocontest/ ---- Please keep voting for my pictures...seems like everyone on TOH really likes the sunset picture, it has gotten the most votes. Smile This is so much fun, I'm really enjoying it.

I am feeling a little better today...still a little dragged out. Now I have that stupid hacky cough. Sad But I did get outside yesterday, really needed that, seemed to bring back some energy back into me.

Hope everyone has a great Sunday!

Take care,
Ann Marie PA

Guess the 24 hours isn't over to revote. I'll have to wait.

I was reading my assigned readings for my class last night. Have you ever read a page or paragraph and after you did it said to yourself, "Huh?" because you can't remember or understand what you just read. Well that is what these pages are like. I may have gotten into easier reading now. The pages are comparing brain neurons to flashlight batteries or garden hoses with holes. But I am only part way into the pages and it might change again. Why do men write using all the technical terminology and 13 letter words when they could write in English? I have read during my courses books written by men and women and by far women write just as intelligent but you understand what you're reading. When you make comments to male professors they admit this and sort of shrug and laugh.

We had a nice sunny day yesterday and it looks like today is going to be another one. We are supposed to reach the mid 70's and that is warm for this time of year in Northwestern Ontario.

I am getting an awfully strong urge to get away for a brief break. I normally go to Vegas in a couple of weeks and then another Xmas shopping trip so I guess it is seasonal with me.

Everyone have a great day.

Marlene

queenie: you live in Ontario? Where do you go shopping? I notice that there are a lot of people from Canada on buses around Christmastime. Do you shop in Erie, PA? If you make it down here some time, let me know...maybe we can get together for lunch. Smile

Do you have a major for college? I did three semesters of college...I learned NEW respect for people that go to college and work at the same time. I couldn't do it - - I was so tired at work, and I couldn't concentrate at college. I was disappointed but I had to take my priority. The college prof at college told me to quit my job, I asked him if he wanted to pay my bills. I went for business. I liked it, but just couldn't handle it. Sad

Take care,
Ann

Ann-Marie - I am 39 miles from the Minnesota border in Thunder Bay. When I cross border to shop I shop in Duluth and Superior, Wisconsin. I always pick a lot of sugar free stuff that I can't get in Canada. SF jellos and puddings, chocolate and caramel sauces, cookies, and then there is Jimmy Dean sausage, Oscar Myer weiners, Panko crumbs and on and on. I blow at least $100. of that sort of thing before I even look for Xmas stuff.

So unless you are willing to drive a lot further from home we are fated not to meet.

I am still list as a BA General but I have four psychology credits and was thinking about going for a basic pyschology degree. I have 7 credits and need 15 in total. But I will be 69 in a very short period of time, less than two weeks, and have had a stroke and cancer now three times. Pills keep me going and apparently I am cancer free so I keep plugging away. At one course a year, the brain doesn't function like it did as a teen any longer so I don't take on more, I have to be fit enough to keep going for 8 more years. It is just a personal satisfaction thing. I'll never use a degree at my age. But all three of my kids have them and I always wanted one. Better late than never. When I was younger there never was money for that kind of education and nor did I have the time.

Marlene

Marlene - you are one spunky lady! Glad to hear you are cancer-free.

I don't know what made me think Ontario...Thunder Bay is a nice place. I was there in '85-'86. My Mom and Dad took me on a trip for my graduation present. We went as far West as Wyoming, then went up through Canada to come home. That is a treasured memory for me. Was only a month after my graduation, Dad had a massive heart attack, he only lived 7 days afterwards.

Hope everyone is having a great day.
Ann

Hi Guys.. Quick question.. do you guys want to make up your own name in the pantry... or call this group a new name? I was thinking about TOH and all the questions surrounding the name on both our site and the TOH.. perhaps you guys want a fresh start... a new name.... a new mascot? You can leave it as TOH... but as we grow, the real TOH might wonder if we started this to take their members when in reality it was just a way for you guys to find each other... let me know if you guys want to change it or keep it the same. Smile
