Make that coffee connection early in the AM with us, or pop in whenever it works each day! SparkPeople Question Of The Day Team Messageboard QOTD 04.17.14 Thursday <em>524</em> precious OOTD Teammates! I sure do hope & pray that your day is proving to be all that the good Lord & you would have it be! <BR> <BR> <BR> Stepping in for Pat with this simple question --- <BR> <BR> You can have one fruit free, stocked into your refrigerator automatically, for the rest of your life – what fruit would that be? <BR> <BR> <BR> God bless! Thu, 17 Apr 2014 12:59:55 EST QOTD 04.16.14 Wednesday! Busy week and probably the busiest day of that week for me. Friends - good morning! <BR> <BR> I am going to be gone for a few days and while I plan on getting here everyday, if I miss getting to the team by Noon Eastern Time, please somebody start a thread for the day and ask a question. <BR> <BR> It will not have the Sticky Note on it, but that is not a problem. Sure would appreciate someone doing that. <BR> <BR> Today's question: When was you last MAJOR appliance purchase? <BR> <BR> ... Wed, 16 Apr 2014 05:30:49 EST QOTD 04.15.14 Tuesday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Welcome to -WRKNG2ABTTRME-! Please tell us a little about yourself, if someone invited you to the team and who that was, cuz we want to thank them, or how you discovered us. You can do it on any of your answers. I like to keep it nice and easy around here. <BR> <BR> Today's question: Does your house have shutters outside and are they usable or just decoration? <BR> <BR> Have a great one! Tue, 15 Apr 2014 05:06:25 EST QOTD 04.14.14 Monday! Good evening! <BR> <BR> Sorry - today was one that started at 5 and I was out the door at 6 - all for naught, too. Anyway, I'm finally home and realized I haven't done anything on SP so here I am. <BR> <BR> I am incredibly tired tonight so not thinking too well. Do you like meatloaf? <BR> <BR> Have a good one! Mon, 14 Apr 2014 19:24:50 EST QOTD 04.13.14 Sunday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Yesterday's questions got some great answers - thanks to all for your thoughts. It appears that not much has changed from way back in the original days of the team - most people are getting their challenges from other places and apparently just want to come here for a daily question (hopefully thought provoking) and to say hello to their friends. <BR> <BR> I, too, am very busy and right now, my computer system is not working at all correctly and the ISP is ... Sun, 13 Apr 2014 04:54:32 EST QOTD 04.12.14 Saturday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Two questions today - one is the "normal" QOTD question, the other is for team planning purposes only. Please answer both, but if you wish to only answer one, it's your choice. Would appreciate input on the team planning question though. <BR> <BR> QOTD: If you were building a recipe book for publication, what sections would you include in it - or which sections would you NOT include? <BR> <BR> Team Planning: Do you want to have a challenge or fitness or A... Sat, 12 Apr 2014 09:37:24 EST QOTD 04.11.14 Friday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Sorry I'm late this morning, but had to take the car in for an oil change at 7am this morning and had to leave here at 6:30am to get there on time. Otherwise, I would be cooling my heels there all day long. <BR> <BR> So 1 new battery, the oil changed, the belts tightened, an onboard computer reset and everything inspected and tested for a road trip, it's done until August. <BR> <BR> What is your favorite meal (breakfast, lunch, dinner), snack (morning, a... Fri, 11 Apr 2014 11:32:40 EST QOTD 04.10.14 Thursday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> We have a new member, so please welcome DeniseNTexas. Welcome to the team! Thanks ImaVision for inviting her. <BR> <BR> I'm having all kinds of issues with my new computer. Not happy with the Appachie Project Windows installed on it. It is a legal program and its free, but it's trying to imitate Windows by MS and it's a long way off as far as I'm concerned. <BR> <BR> Right now Google's Chrome is also causing me a problem and I may have to uninstall it a... Thu, 10 Apr 2014 09:45:15 EST QOTD 04.09.14 Wednesday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Another day of going to work - hope this job continues and becomes a day or two longer every week than it currently is. Not feeling real good about that prospect as summer is coming, the work load lightens to drastic nothings for a lot, if not most companies and while he put some of the work back on the person that was dumping her work on me, I still can't see me being there during the summer. Oh well! Only can wait and see. <BR> <BR> Do/Have you sign/sig... Wed, 9 Apr 2014 05:30:23 EST QOTD 04.08.14 Tuesday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Yesterday's question got a lot of answers and interesting ones, too. I think anyone seeing Canada would agree that Canada is just as diverse and beautiful as the US and any of Canada's National Parks, Forests, and Monuments would be beautiful and interesting, too. I, too, have been to Plymouth Rock and while I never expected it to be like the rock of Gibraltar, I was surprised when I saw a chain-link fence around it, but I guess someone has to protect it fr... Tue, 8 Apr 2014 08:09:04 EST QOTD 04.07.14 Monday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Up early this morning, which is more common than not. But I'm here anyway. <BR> <BR> Have any of you traveled to a National Park, Forest, or Monument? Were you disappointed or did you feel satisfied with your visit? And, if you haven't ever visited a National Park, Forest, or Monument, I gotta say, "You really should reconsider." <BR> <BR> Have a great one! Mon, 7 Apr 2014 05:35:04 EST QOTD 04.06.14 Sparkling Sunday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Are you into architecture at all? (Do you like looking at interesting buildings, at the least?) <BR> Do you have a favorite style of architecture (building)? <BR> <BR> Have a wonderful day. Sun, 6 Apr 2014 04:05:57 EST QOTD 04.05.14 Super Saturday! Good morning, Friends! (Done like Good morning, Viet Nam by Robin Williams!) <BR> <BR> I've been farm hopping already. I got up at midnight and sat down on the loveseat, then my DH woke me up at 7:30 this morning. I had been sleeping there like a pretzel for nearly 8 hours. I got up, stiff as a board and it took several steps to unkink, but I'm fine and had my coffee. <BR> <BR> Do you like iced coffee? <BR> <BR> Have a wonderful weekend. <em>106</em> Sat, 5 Apr 2014 12:04:51 EST QOTD 04.04.14 Fun Friday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> What is your favorite thing to eat, or thing to do on Friday? <BR> Do you do it every Friday, or do you do it only occasionally on Friday? <BR> <BR> Have a great day and a wonderful weekend! <em>449</em> Fri, 4 Apr 2014 09:02:05 EST QOTD 04.03.14 Triumphant Thursday! I figured I was going to have trouble with today's title, but there it is and for me, it is a little triumphant. I gained .2 pound for the week which was a lot less than I thought it was going to be. For my first week of challenge it was a nasty week. I have no idea why I started gaining weight because my food choices were not that bad and mostly good, my exercise was there, too. But anyway, I am still moving on. <BR> <BR> Good morning, Friends. I hope you are having a great week. <BR> ... Thu, 3 Apr 2014 05:19:38 EST QOTD 04.02.14 Wellness Wednesday! I was talking to a co-worker about restaurants and she said, "Have you ever thought about the germs that are on the Menus and have you noticed that if you do not hold out your hand to take the menu from the server, they lay it directly on your plate? Now your plate, silverware, napkin is covered with the germs." <BR> <BR> I thought about it and remembered a girlfriend, long gone, once told me that after she ordered, she would go to the restroom and wash her hands and she always carried a sm... Wed, 2 Apr 2014 10:55:59 EST QOTD 04.01.14 Toughen Up Tuesday! I'm finding it almost impossible to figure out something clever for the day - wonder what I'm coming up with on Thursday! <BR> <BR> So my sleeping is obnoxious again, which always adds to my weight and then as soon as I get my sleep right, my weight starts going back down. My RA is driving me nuts, too. Things I seem to have no control over, which is another irritating thing and makes it very difficult to stay positive and happy. <BR> <BR> Yesterday was a busy one for me and I got so much... Tue, 1 Apr 2014 03:02:21 EST QOTD 03.31.14 Motivation Monday! I have no problem with motivation! I did have a problem with food choices on Saturday! And with all the exercise the two of us got with the garage sale - you would have thought it was the better day of the weekend, but I was up 3 pounds yesterday to 215. Disappointing, but not the end of all. It means I have to work harder and be a lot more accountable. <BR> <BR> I see some of you have joined the fight and it looks like we are going to have some fun. Sure hope some others join in, too... Mon, 31 Mar 2014 04:41:09 EST Team Bonus Spark Points Here we can see how many points we can get for the team.

I've declared today, Inspiration Sunday! Let's all try to inspire each other to have a wonderful day that they make happen the way they want, whether it is to lose a pound (get out there and throw snowballs, kick a can down the road, pick up roadside trash - as long as you're safe - ride a bike, walk the dog or the cat, do some aerobics, hit the pool, hit the gym, or just walk. We can do this! Let's all inspire each other to get do it! <BR> <BR> Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> I hope I... Sun, 30 Mar 2014 05:18:20 EST QOTD 03.29.14 Saturday! New topics and/or questions happily accepted at my SparkMail box. <BR> <BR> Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Do you do/go to garage sales? <BR> <BR> Have a wonderful and blessed day! Sat, 29 Mar 2014 05:07:13 EST QOTD 03.28.14 Friday! I'm off to a good start today. Already making plans on several fronts and starting to get rid of a few things in the way so feeling great and ready to go. <BR> <BR> Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Is your house a "rambler" or is it multi-storied (called "stacks" in construction)? <BR> <BR> Have a great one! Fri, 28 Mar 2014 08:42:06 EST QOTD 03.27.14 Thursday! In for another busy day, but managed to sleep well and woke up in time to hack into SP for the QOTD Team. Thanks for the prayer Deb, sorry you worried about me, can't believe I did that. <BR> <BR> So today I have a strange question - well it may seem strange but I have something going on and I am curious as to find out if I'm the only one like this. <BR> <BR> Have you ever awaken to find your house a mess (because you let it get that way for one reason or another) and felt like it was all ... Thu, 27 Mar 2014 06:50:17 EST QOTD 03.26.14 Wednesday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Thanks Deb for doing the QOTD yesterday. I didn't sleep, got up late, came home exhausted and went to bed. By the time I woke up it was after midnight and I thought, "I didn't do the QOTD yesterday - or anything on Spark." So my streak is busted, too. <BR> <BR> Oh well, start over again. <BR> <BR> Do you like to camp? <BR> <BR> Have a great one! <em>104</em> Wed, 26 Mar 2014 04:45:46 EST QOTD 03.25.14 Tuesday! What is your favorite nut? Tue, 25 Mar 2014 14:20:46 EST QOTD 03.24.14 Monday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Today, I am considering the following for a change. <BR> <BR> What color is your front door? <BR> <BR> Have a great day! Mon, 24 Mar 2014 06:51:27 EST QOTD 03.23.14 Sunday! First day of the new week! We just got back from picking strawberries and then I had to fight with this computer to get it to come up and get online. Seems like the internet is so slow these days. Wonder what's up? <BR> <BR> Do you have a garden? <BR> <BR> Have a wonderful blessed day. Sun, 23 Mar 2014 10:52:47 EST QOTD 03.22.14 Saturday! My week is over and I am very glad for that. Didn't get enough sleep last night, but can nap later if I need it. Trying to be very busy today - lot's to do and catch up on. <BR> <BR> Does your house a roof over the front door so you are protected from the rain and weather or a large porch so you can sit and enjoy the scenery? <BR> <BR> Have a great one! Sat, 22 Mar 2014 06:30:40 EST QOTD 03.21.14 Friday! Thanks for all the prayers and well wishing. I am so glad it is over with, except for the slow part. He has to go slow for a couple of days - apparently Sunday is the day he can go full speed again. He is having a difficult time going slow. He feels great. Said he noticed a difference in his breathing as soon as he woke up. He can stay awake a lot easier than before, too. <BR> <BR> It was basically preventative but it worked so glad it was found and dealt with, even though I was a wrea... Fri, 21 Mar 2014 05:49:40 EST QOTD 03.20.14 Thursday! He's home and all is well! WooHoo! <BR> <BR> Sorry, I'm late, but it takes forever to get one out of the hospital anymore. <BR> <BR> What is your favorite fish? <BR> <BR> Have a wonderful and blessed day! Thu, 20 Mar 2014 12:20:57 EST QOTD 03.19.14 Wednesday! Good morning, Friends! It's very early - 1:30am as a matter of fact. I've been up since shortly after midnight, but I went to bed at 8pm so I've had at least 4 hours of sleep. I'll try to get a couple more before the alarm goes off at 5am. Hubby has to be at hospital at 6am. <BR> <BR> What time do you usually start your day? <BR> <BR> Have a great one and thank you for your prayers! Wed, 19 Mar 2014 01:33:30 EST QOTD 03.18.14 Tuesday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Do you ever take vitamin supplements? <BR> <BR> Have a wonderful blessed day! <BR> <BR> PS Hubby is going in for heart procedure tomorrow and I am really jittery about it. He's at a place where he has no symptoms but they see some anomaly that they want to attack before it has a chance to get worse. I am fine with the attitude, but terrified they are leaping into something that isn't necessary and that he will leave for Heaven without me and before me. I... Tue, 18 Mar 2014 05:44:47 EST QOTD 03.17.14 Monday! St. Patrick's Day! Have a great green day! <BR> <BR> Do you wear green today so you don't get pinched or because you like green and you sort of want to carry on a tradition of wearing green on this day? <BR> <BR> Do you have any traditions you hold onto for this day? <BR> <BR> Have a wonderful blessed day! Happy St. Pat's Day! Mon, 17 Mar 2014 05:30:13 EST QOTD 03.16.14 Sunday! Good morning! <BR> <BR> This question might make you think I am suffering from it, but I can assure you, I am not. <BR> <BR> Have you ever had recurring nightmares? <BR> <BR> Have a wonderful blessed day! Sun, 16 Mar 2014 10:01:53 EST QOTD 03.15.14 Saturday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Please welcome TOPSBEAR to our team! We hope you introduce yourself to the team on the Intro Thread of the TeamPage and participate everyday on the QOTD. If you have a question you would like to see asked, please send a SparkMail to FloridaGhost. I'll get it on the thread asap. <BR> <BR> Today's question: Does a weight loss spur you on to losing more weight? <BR> <BR> Have a wonderful, blessed day! Sat, 15 Mar 2014 07:10:13 EST QOTD 03.14.14 Friday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Welcome ToLoseIt213 and Sunrise141. We also welcomed Imavision and Regileh earlier, but welcome again. This week is doing well. Thanks to everyone that invited a friend or two to the team. Let's keep going! <BR> <BR> New members, please tell us about yourselves in the Into thread on the team page. <BR> <BR> How many appliances did your house or apartment come with when you moved in? <BR> <BR> Have a good one. Fri, 14 Mar 2014 04:59:10 EST QOTD 03.13.14 Thursday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> I'm kinda frisky this morning - not that kinda frisky - just wanting to go play! Currently, I'm driving my husband nuts. He likes to wake up slowly. I've never been a morning person, but it seems the older I get, the faster I want to get going when I do wake up. Today is a speed day for us. He has to leave at 7:00am for work and I have to leave at 7:30am for work. Mine is normal, his is early and he's dragging so I've been cracking the whip on him. He ... Thu, 13 Mar 2014 05:38:23 EST QOTD 03.12.14 Wednesday! Good morning, Friends! Welcome IMAVISION and RELIGH! <BR> <BR> Let's all ask at least one SparkFriend to join the team today, especially if you like it. <BR> <BR> I'm going to be adding a game to the team. It's simple and fun. <BR> <BR> Yesterday we asked if you had a basement. Today I'm asking if you have an attic! <BR> <BR> Have a great day! Wed, 12 Mar 2014 09:49:51 EST QOTD 03.11.14 Tuesday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> I hope you all had a great day yesterday. I was late yesterday so I hope you had a chance to check back and participate, but if you didn't, you can still participate in yesterday's QOTD. <BR> <BR> Does your house have a basement? <BR> Is it spooky and dark or clean, bright, and welcoming? <BR> <BR> Have a great one! Tue, 11 Mar 2014 06:07:43 EST QOTD 03.10.14 Monday! Hi, Everyone! Sorry I'm late today. Forgot to jump in on this before leaving for work today. <BR> <BR> Is your house built flat on the ground or has the ground been raised to contour the yard and raise the house up for flooding reasons? <BR> <BR> Hope you all had a great day! Mon, 10 Mar 2014 17:27:38 EST QOTD 03.09.14 Sunday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Feeling much more like myself today! So I'm busy getting things done that I can't seem to get to during the week. It is incredible how tired I am when I get home at night and my days off are spent feeling like a near-zombie. It seems by Sunday, I am back and ready to go. Getting used to working for someone else, and all the physical exercise is good, but takes it tolls, too. <BR> <BR> Do you have a fence around your yard? <BR> <BR> Have a blessed one! Sun, 9 Mar 2014 11:22:39 EST QOTD 03.08.14 Saturday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Another Saturday, today's weather looks pretty good so far today for my area. <BR> <BR> Do you buy "Forever" stamps from the Post Office? <BR> <BR> Have a blessed day! <BR> <BR> Question submissions to FG on SparkMail welcome anytime. Sat, 8 Mar 2014 08:30:55 EST QOTD 03.07.14 Friday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Had a long one yesterday. As soon as I left work, I hurried through traffic to meet my husband at a place called Troyers and had an Amish dinner. Did not overeat. Their salad bar is wonderful as it has everything you could put on a pile of lettuce. Had chicken with beets as the veggie of the night. <BR> <BR> After that we rushed to a meeting we were scheduled for and basically wasted another 2 hours, came home, dragging our backsides. I think I went t... Fri, 7 Mar 2014 04:57:09 EST QOTD 03.06.14 Thursday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Today's question is from GJ, Thanks. <BR> <BR> Have you ever used a washboard to clean laundry? Thu, 6 Mar 2014 04:58:42 EST QOTD 03.05.14 Wednesday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> I "saw" Wendy this morning. I told her I missed her and hoped she would come back soon. Maybe we could all send her a SparkGoodie and encourage her to come back, and anyone else you can think of that has been missing for awhile. <BR> <BR> Do you use metrics (in US) by choice or not? Do you like them? <BR> <BR> Have a good one. Wed, 5 Mar 2014 05:26:26 EST QOTD 03.04.14 Tuersday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Another day of work, then one off, then work on Thursday. Keep getting more added to the things to do so probably will never see another short day. <BR> <BR> When is the last time you attempted the multiplication tables in your head? <BR> <BR> Have a good one! Tue, 4 Mar 2014 04:39:33 EST QOTD 03.03.14 Monday! I think I screwed up on yesterdays date and day. If I did, I'll go back and fix it. <BR> <BR> Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Today's question has to have a lead in first: <BR> When I was a kid, my mother would take everything out of the cupboards, clean the cupboards inside and out and wash everything before putting it all back. She called it, "Spring Cleaning!" Do you do spring cleaning? <BR> <BR> Have a good one! Mon, 3 Mar 2014 04:41:13 EST QOTD 03.02.14 Sunday! Done with Disney World today - heading off to other places. <BR> <BR> Have you ever been to Orlando, FL? <BR> <BR> Have a great day! Sun, 2 Mar 2014 06:58:34 EST QOTD 03.01.14 Saturday! Hello from Disney World/Epcot Center, Orlando, FL! <BR> <BR> Been out celebrating my birthday like a little kid! <BR> <BR> Have you ever been to any Disney event, resort, cruise, or venue? <BR> <BR> Have a great day! Sat, 1 Mar 2014 14:31:33 EST QOTD 03.01.14 Saturday! I bet FG is off having a grand time. So I will post a question. <BR> <BR> What is your favorite gem stone? Sat, 1 Mar 2014 14:29:58 EST QOTD 02.28.14 Friday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Do you wear belts? <BR> How many do you own? <BR> <BR> Have a good one! Fri, 28 Feb 2014 06:40:56 EST QOTD 02.27.14 Thursday! Do you like black and white movies, color movies, or color-restored movies? Thu, 27 Feb 2014 06:34:41 EST QOTD 02.26.14 Wednesday! Last day of work this week! Yesterday was so quiet. Got it all done in 6 hours. <BR> <BR> Today's question: Do you like old movies (black and white)? <BR> <BR> Have a good one! Wed, 26 Feb 2014 03:48:07 EST QOTD 02.25.14 Tuesday Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Trying to get sleepy again so I can go back to bed. Hate it when I wake up and some of these articles I read on sleep problems are a joke. Like the one that says, sleep an extra 15 minutes every night until you get to 8 hours of sleep. Da! <BR> <BR> If I could sleep an extra 15 minutes - I wouldn't have the issues!!! Obviously written by someone without any problems, probably a guy! <BR> <BR> Today's Question: How many jeans do you own - fit or not? <BR... Tue, 25 Feb 2014 03:43:42 EST QOTD 02.24.14 Monday! Are you for or against National Healthcare regardless of what they call it or how you get to it? Mon, 24 Feb 2014 07:34:16 EST QOTD 02.23.14 Sunday! Good morning. Team! <BR> <BR> Do you have vision and/or dental insurance? <BR> <BR> Have a good one! Sun, 23 Feb 2014 06:07:59 EST QOTD CHAT 02.22.14 Saturday! I don't have anything to talk about this early on a Saturday! Why don't we stop the chat line and put our "chatter" on our qotd thread? We could answer the question and then do our chatting on the same message. <BR> <BR> I am finding that everyone seems to use the chat thread the same as the qotd thread in that whatever I babble about, everyone else seems to follow on the same line and I thought the chat line could be an opening for discussions of whatever someone wanted to talk about, wit... Sat, 22 Feb 2014 05:57:31 EST QOTD 02.22.14 Saturday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> How often do you go to the eye doctor? <BR> <BR> Have a good weekend! Sat, 22 Feb 2014 05:52:06 EST QOTD CHAT 02.21.14 Friday! I watched the Olympics last night. First watch of this one. I'm not really interested in most of it, but I was watching the finals of the women's skaters and thought the Russian girl who won was great! I thought two of ours (Gold and 9th place winner) were good - better than 7th and 9th, but so was the Italian lady who got third. I thought 2nd place Kim was out there doing mediocre stuff and didn't deserve a place on the podium but got it because of her previous status. Was not impressed... Fri, 21 Feb 2014 09:31:01 EST QOTD 02.21.14 Friday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> How often do you go to the dentist? <BR> <BR> Have a good one! Fri, 21 Feb 2014 09:19:19 EST QOTD CHAT 02.20.14 Thursday! I'm spending today doing not much. I might take a long soak in the bathtub, I think my feet would like that. <BR> <BR> Other than that, not much is happening today and no plans for the next four days either. <BR> <BR> Have a good one. Thu, 20 Feb 2014 06:06:18 EST QOTD 02.20.14 Thursday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Today is the first of 4 days in a row off for me. I am looking forward to it. That hard concrete floor I walk on all day is killing my well-shoed feet and my lower back. I do lots of bending, reaching, and walking. Good exercise and I love the job, but I hate my feet and lower back hurting. Wonder if losing more weight will help.

Today will be day 3 of my new job. Isn't this ridiculous. You'd think I have nothing else to talk about. I guess I don't right now. I come home exhausted, but I feel great. I'm happy right now. Everything at work is going well. I'm not letting anything irritate me, even though one of my friends got irritated at a customer that I found had been doing something wrong. <BR> <BR> When our customers want to take fabric samples out of the center with them, we log them out. This one designe... Wed, 19 Feb 2014 05:25:33 EST QOTD 02.19.14 Wednesday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Do you keep a journal or diary for any reason? <BR> <BR> Have a great one! Wed, 19 Feb 2014 04:59:56 EST QOTD CHAT 02.18.17 Tuesday! Yes, I really like my new job. I have said that sometimes in the past, but at the same time of saying it, I was wondering what it was that I liked so well. This one has the best people I think I have worked with in a very long time. They were so happy to have me there and they kept asking me if I needed anything, wanted anything, if I had taken my break, go to lunch, take your time, mix it all up, so I would not be standing for too long, that kind of thing. <BR> <BR> Yesterday I was aimin... Tue, 18 Feb 2014 02:56:47 EST QOTD 02.18.14 Tuesday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Are you a "Military brat?" <BR> <BR> Have a good one! Tue, 18 Feb 2014 02:44:55 EST QOTD CHAT 02.17.14 Monday! This is my first day at my new job. It's a part/time job and today I might be able to work a full day, plus then Tuesday, Wednesday and I don't know about Thursday, but Friday is a day off so I will get at least 3 days off every weened, which makes it great for me. <BR> <BR> But it's one of those kinds of jobs where you go to work, do it, then leave and you don't have to take it with you at any level and it's the kind of job I wanted, basically no responsibilities. Sure I have to "file" th... Mon, 17 Feb 2014 01:12:33 EST QOTD 02.17.14 Monday! First day on new job! <BR> <BR> How often doyou move (fitness)? <BR> <BR> Have a great one! Mon, 17 Feb 2014 01:05:22 EST QOTD CHAT 02.16.14 Sunday! Yesterday went to the local mall (outlet mall) for something to do to get some exercise and release some anxiety. It worked. Got there and the parking lot was full, not a good sign for a person that does not like crowds. But found a spot in the middle that was just being vacated, so I took it while the getting was good. Got out hiked up the parking lot and was glad I took that spot because there was not another empty spot for as far as I could see in any direction and there was a swarm of... Sun, 16 Feb 2014 04:19:12 EST QOTD 02.16.14 Sunday! My area is having wonderful weather right now. It was 80°F yesterday, but a brisk cold breeze kept me bundled up. It was great having the sun out again. Looks like a week of this. Do not envy the rest of the country. Apparently we are the only state of the 50 that does not have snow in it. Even Hawaii got some snow, but I think it was on the top of the mountain on Maui, which is normal, I believe. <BR> <BR> Do you collect things? What are your collections. <BR> <BR> Have a blessed da... Sun, 16 Feb 2014 03:56:09 EST QOTD CHAT 02.15.14 Saturday! Good morning. Nothing really to chat about for me. Busy trying to meal plan and get some other things done. <BR> <BR> Have a great one! Sat, 15 Feb 2014 10:41:48 EST QOTD 02.15.14 Saturday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Do you have a "picture wall"? Sat, 15 Feb 2014 10:37:23 EST QOTD CHAT 02.14.14 Friday! Valentines Day! Happy Valentine's day, my Friends. <BR> <BR> I hope all of you get something spectacular from your valentine. <BR> <BR> My husband and I went to PF Chang's In Sarasota last night because I hate going to restaurants on Friday night. They are all packed, even the bad ones. <BR> <BR> It was our first time at Chang's in a long time and our first time at the Sarasota (SRQ) Chang's. It was a very nice restaurant, new, and the service was great, the food was fantastic. Of course we stuffed our... Fri, 14 Feb 2014 09:03:32 EST QOTD 02.14.14 Friday! Valentine's Day!

I should have known this would happen, but I was in a spot where something had to be done and I was the only one willing to jump in and fix it. <BR> <BR> We have a group of people, around 50 of us, that love to sing and can do it good enough to make a pretty good group. Some do not read music, but if they sit next to a person that does read music, they will follow along. Some can't get their eyes off the music and therefore miss cut offs and come in late and there's even one guy with a goo... Thu, 13 Feb 2014 05:01:40 EST QOTD 02.13.14 Thursday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Years ago, back in the 60's, women threw their bras away and I have often wondered if those that threw their bras away ever started wearing them again. I did not join the bra pitchers for personal reason, but in spirit I understood their reasons and was on their side. <BR> <BR> Do you wear a bra more than not? Do you ever wear one to bed? Thu, 13 Feb 2014 04:41:02 EST QOTD CHAT 02.12.14 Wednesday! Good morning, Friends. <BR> <BR> I am feeling blue today. Got some irritating, more than bad news last evening, so I'm pretty blue about it today. What I do not understand is why people decide to make someone else's life miserable by making a statement that is so open ended as to drive a semi through it. All it does is create anxiety in someone else or cause them to run around like chicken Little trying to fix the broken dam. At this point, I am ready to let it just go, walk away with th... Wed, 12 Feb 2014 09:04:04 EST QOTD 02.12.14 Wednesday!

No problem. <BR> <BR> What is your favorite lunch? <BR> <BR> Have a great one! Tue, 11 Feb 2014 08:22:13 EST QOTD CHAT 02.11.14 Tuesday! Good morning! Tue, 11 Feb 2014 08:20:03 EST QOTD CHAT 2.10.14 It's cold and rainy here. I want to walk today but it will be inside. I need ideas for breakfast's. I am stuck with my banana, yogurt and granola. If you have any suggestions for healthy breakfast I would like it. <BR> <BR> We watched the movie American Hustle this weekend about the Am Scam bust - it was a pretty good movie. I liked the music and the clothes from the 70's in it. I think it would be fun to decorate the sets for the 70's. Fun to find all the stuff from the 60's and 70's in the... Mon, 10 Feb 2014 10:35:46 EST QOTD 02.10.14 Monday! So how do you like the Chat Thread? This is not today's question, but maybe an additional one. If I don't start the chat thread, somebody start it, just make sure you follow the title as shown on the previous days. <BR> <BR> Do you like the "Batman" movies?? <BR> <BR> Have a good one! Mon, 10 Feb 2014 08:18:05 EST QOTD CHAT 02.09.14 Sunday! Good morning, Friends and chatters. <BR> <BR> Enjoy your day! <BR> <BR> Yesterday, we went out to get the grocery shopping done early, then we had to go a little farther south and do some home improvement shopping. When we were done with that we went to the Greek Festival just down the street. Stuffed ourselves good, then went home. Gosh they have great food there. <BR> <BR> Sun, 9 Feb 2014 10:04:19 EST QOTD 02.09.14 Sunday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Do you low carb it, or calorie count? Sun, 9 Feb 2014 10:01:12 EST CHAT QOTD 02.08.14 Saturday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> This is our new chat line for today only. A new one should start every day. <BR> <BR> Of course, now that I'm starting this, I have no idea what to say so I'm going to babble something, probably unintelligent. I do wish all of you a great day. And now my DH wants to go shopping at 6 am! <BR> <BR> Have a great day! Sat, 8 Feb 2014 06:08:28 EST QOTD 02.08.14 Saturday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> I have made a new thread in the same forum as the QOTD thread. It should be started new everyday and I only ask that you title it as example: CHAT 02.08.14 Saturday! (or whatever appropriate date and day). I think it will stick out well. I'll watch for a few days to see how it sticks to the front page as if it goes to the back, it might get forgotten or missed totally. <BR> <BR> This idea came from Vicki-N-FL (not sure I got that moniker just right, but I... Sat, 8 Feb 2014 05:48:39 EST QOTD 02.07.14 Friday! Hi, Everyone! <BR> <BR> Monday's and Friday's are going to be my bad days, apparently. I have Chorus on those two days and the concert is gearing up for March 30th production so I am pretty much stuck with the schedule now. I cannot believe how much there is to do and - well, I'm going to be late on these two days. <BR> <BR> Would you like a team "chat" thread on a daily basis? <BR> <BR> Have a good one!

Please join me in wishing our February TeamMates a Happy Birthday! <BR> <BR> I looked at our team birthday roster and didn't see any February "babies" so I have no to wish a happy birthday to.

Tue, 28 Jan 2014 05:21:00 EST QOTD 01.27.14 Monday! Raining here, heavily. Got rained on during my walk. But it's warmer than predicted. 66. <BR> <BR> Have you seen "Ratatouille"? <BR> <BR> Have a great one! Mon, 27 Jan 2014 08:26:07 EST QOTD 01.26.14 Sunday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Actually, I don't think it was autopilot that got me going as much as sheer determination. That actually struck first, that and the fact that my DH had started by going out alone for 3 days and I felt left out, so those were two factors that were there. But yes, I was dressed and almost all the way around the lake before I realized what was going on. I remember it was a cold morning, very early, still dark out and I knew I had to get home before a shade of... Sun, 26 Jan 2014 03:35:16 EST QOTD 01.25.14 Saturday! Janet - I know it's hard to get started. I had to literally force myself (and my DH) out of the house. Since it is 56 outside this morning (a lot warmer than predicted) I think it was much colder that morning, but when the alarm clock went off, we jumped out of bed, slid into our clothes and on the way to grabbing my shoes, I checked the temperature. We put on our shoes, slid into thick coats, and gloves (unusual in FL) and left the house. <BR> <BR> We were actually coming to the driveway... Sat, 25 Jan 2014 06:55:18 EST QOTD 01.24.14 Friday! Janet - did you do your fitness yesterday? Check out the huddle to see what I did. <BR> <BR> When you go to a movie, do you stop at the concession stand first? <BR> What do you buy at the concession stand? Fri, 24 Jan 2014 05:30:59 EST QOTD Member Birthdays for January 2014! Happy birthday, my friends. I'm just getting this started, so I apologize. Come back later to see who is the birthday Sparker this month. Thu, 23 Jan 2014 08:54:22 EST QOTD 01.23.14 Thursday! Janet - check out yesterday's thread. I wrote an answer to your post that I hope will be helpful. <BR> <BR> Had a crumby night last night. Went to bed at 9pm cuz I was so tired, but woke up at 11pm and didn't go back to sleep until 5am now I'm up at 8 and trying to catch up. Haven't done my walk yet, so need to get out and do that - Lobsterman is already gone so I've got to do it alone today. It's under 50° this morning and there's frost on the ground. I didn't move to Florida to freeze... Thu, 23 Jan 2014 08:42:07 EST QOTD 01.22.14 Wednesday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> I'm here and feeling great. I got out of bed, had a cup of coffee (white and sweet from sugar free flavors - French Vanilla and Caramel) and then got dressed and went for a walk. Along the way we were talking about the Chorus I am being chairperson of and now it's my responsibility to make the concert one of the most memorable ones in eons for a lot of reasons. My husband drug me into the clubhouse to look at the ballroom with its two posts in the middle o... Wed, 22 Jan 2014 09:07:00 EST QOTD 01.21.14 Tuesday!

Sleeping badly and then not really awake when my eyes are open - at least my brain isn't running on all four cylinders or however many there are.

Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> It's an absolutely BEAUTIFUL frozen day outside right now. The wind is blowing the freezing cold from Siberia in and it cuts right through us. It's about 55° which is around 32° in our minds because we are no longer hauling around the thick goo in our bodies so Northern winters to us is the same as a deep freeze to you. <BR> <BR> Do you have a will? <BR> What is your state requirement? <BR> <BR> Have a good one! Sat, 18 Jan 2014 11:18:12 EST QOTD 01.17.14 Friday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Do you know what a power of attorney is and how it can work? <BR> <BR> Have a great one! Fri, 17 Jan 2014 04:07:55 EST QOTD 01.16.14 Thursday! Good morning! It sure is cold here - under 50 and for Florida - that might as well be 32 cuz I can't get warm right now. <BR> <BR> Do you like meat, chicken, beef, pork, turkey, or lamb and do you eat one of those most of the time? <BR> <BR> Have a good one! Thu, 16 Jan 2014 09:00:40 EST QOTD 01.15.14 Wednesday! Do you think cloning of humans is a good idea or not? Wed, 15 Jan 2014 03:08:55 EST QOTD 01.14.14 Tuesday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> We are finally back to warm and the grass is growing again. Seems like it was a long winter this year. We only received a fraction of the deep freeze the rest of the nation handled, but we did feel it and for us, with our thinner blood, it was miserable. I never saw so many winter clothes so fast. We even drug out our Polar coats and felt like idiots because we couldn't find our polar fur hats. Wore gloves on our walks because it was so cold to us. <BR> ... Tue, 14 Jan 2014 03:02:15 EST QOTD 01.13.14 Monday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Big day today for me - Spring Chorus starts and I'm the new Chairperson of the Chorus Board and since we didn't have a concert last winter, it's like starting something totally new.

Good morning, Team! <BR> <BR> I was up at 0200 this morning but went back to bed at 0500 and didn't get up until my husband basically threw me into clothes and drug me out the door for breakfast and shopping at around 0730. No time for anything including brushing my teeth! Yuk! Didn't talk to anyone until I got home and practically used bleach on the teeth in order to get rid of the morning breath taste - another Yuk! <BR> <BR> Today's question: <BR> <BR> Do you read the health aricle...

Mon, 6 Jan 2014 03:41:45 EST QOTD 01.05.14 Sunday! I am getting lost in what I have to do and it's giving me this overwhelmed feeling. Haven't been sleeping as well as I should be, but that is an ongoing practice. That trip was far too long and it is amazing at how much we pushed ourselves to get home as quickly as possible. We stretched our normal stop every 2 hours to every 3 hours and in the end, we were feeling like we were so close, let's just keep going. Flying is out of the question as I don't like feeling like an uncared for sardi... Sun, 5 Jan 2014 11:28:26 EST QOTD 01.04.14 Saturday!

Made it home safe - drove 99% of the way home in the rain, some spots worse than others, but nothing torential and all roads, were wet. Parked in the carport and got out, got the stuff in the house, the door closed, and it started pouring in buckets. Could not have asked for anything better. There was only one accident and that was about 100 miles short of our destination and it wasn't bad. <BR> <BR> Today's Question: Do you get your 3 veggies and 2 fruits everyday? <BR> <BR> Have a grea...

Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Today is the last Saturday of 2013! I'm feeling weird today. Wondering silly things like, if I was the last Saturday, would I be happy or sad? After thinking that, I'm wondering why it would matter? I said I felt weird. But then I slept all night, which is weird for me. <BR> <BR> Who puts the fuel in your automobiles?

So a call to my IT man this morning has me waiting for his return call. I've taken over my DHs for now. Hate the thing, it isn't mine. Like the keys are different. Same place but they just feel different and it doesn't have the sideboard with the calculator-like board on it, so it's missing keys - as far as I'm concerned.

Walmart had several riots of their own in the news - still. because they allegedly had specials they couldn't produce for the mobs that showed up which caused riots. <BR> <BR> Do you feel the stores created the problems?

Good morning, Team! <BR> <BR> Its only 65°F here in dark Florida. The sun has not crawled out of bed yet so it's really cold for us.

Going to have to wait on the GD so a bucket is under the stupid thing now. They only last 10 years. I had a new one put in when we moved here 10 years ago and now it's leaking like a sieve.

I was eagerly awaiting a new topic, since I finally cleaned out my Inbox and nothing is lost in it. Seeing nothing from the team as yet, I thought I'd venture a question, even though it might have already been addressed while I was AWOL: Is anyone growing veggies this summer and, if so, what kind? We have tomatoes, and that's about it unless you count some herbs. I aspire to more but don't actually get around to it. Maybe I'll plant radishes for quick results and perhaps some spinach for...

Fri, 9 Aug 2013 09:04:12 EST QOTD 08.08.13 Thursday! Janet - I had pain on the inside of my knee next to the kneecap and I had it checked with an orthopedic surgeon. I had no ligaments on either side of my knee so my knee joint was basically free of it's elastic bands that were there to keep it in place. And my cartilage was shot, too. Anyway, I no longer have the pain, but I did not do the surgery because he said it was such and old issue that I had about a 5% chance of it healing and holding after the painful elongated surgery. Check it ou... Thu, 8 Aug 2013 10:15:22 EST QOTD 08.017.13 Wednesday! Today is my graduation day from healing and the gall bladder surgery of over a month ago. I can't tell anyone how good it feels to be past it. I feel great, except yesterday it was like my insides knew it was the last day and they revolted. I went to the pool and walked for 10 minutes and got past the crappy feelings, but today, I feel great. <BR> <BR> We all have stress - some of it has been with us forever and will probably always be there, but we learn to ignore it for awhile. What do... Wed, 7 Aug 2013 05:08:36 EST QOTD 08.06.13 Tuesday! Hi, my friends! <BR> <BR> Today is a bad day for me. I feel totally screwed up inside and my brain is paying the price for it so let's just call it a painful day. Onward! <BR> <BR> From a comment I heard on TV this morning, do you ever feel like "we will get back to pre-911 times?" (By this comment and what was going on around it, I believe it to mean, no fears of some other part of the world coming at us to destroy as many of us as possible in as short of time as possible for any reason...
