They teach you nothing about fitness or meal planning or anything about food - what's good and what isn't - and feed you salt and nitrates telling you it's good for you. When you reach goal, you are left in the dust with no idea of how to eat healthy and to do any kind of fitness. I know because I was part of their s...

I didn't really have a question as much as anger at the total lack of work from a group of people that were elected to run this country.

(The kind you walk into and it is very clean, the fabric is hung in colors that seem to flow from one color to the next like a rainbow effect.) <BR> <BR> This question comes from the fact that I work in a fabric showroom and it's my job to blend the colors so they travel as stated above. <BR> <BR> Have a blessed day!

It's 4:41am and my arthritis in my left wrist is bugging me already. Need the Aspercream for it.

Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> I've been busy since 4 am this morning. Feeling great after yesterday's wilted day after Sundays allergy attack. Uf! <BR> <BR> Have you ever made soap balls? <BR> <BR> Have a good one! Tue, 6 May 2014 04:55:48 EST QOTD 05.04.14 Sunday! If your birthday is this month - Happy Birthday! I have a Birthday thread, but no one uses it - or very few, so I thought I would just combine it here, too. If you haven't given me your birthday, please send me SparkMail with the month and day only. We'll want to wish you a happy birthday. <BR> <BR> Do you grow any of your own food? <BR> <BR> Have a great day! <BR> Sun, 4 May 2014 05:58:44 EST QOTD 05.03.14 Saturday! Parrish is floating now. We'll settle for a rain stoppage at any second now. <BR> <BR> Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> It appears there was an overwhelming response to the Team Wall and while it is still there in place of the team huddle, they have returned the use of the BLOG button so you can go see blogs of team members. Apparently - no one liked not being able to do that it was not meant to be deleted in the first place, but you know how things go when you start changing things. <BR>... Sat, 3 May 2014 12:29:56 EST QOTD 05.02.14 Friday! Parrish, FL - weather is frightful. Lots of rain, wind, and flooding everywhere with T-Storms and a very black sky. <BR> <BR> How many pets do you have, currently? <BR> <BR> Have a good one. Fri, 2 May 2014 14:56:18 EST QOTD 05.01.14 Thursday! Good morning, Friends! Surprise! I found our TeamPage totally different this morning so I don't know if it's my computer or some change they made overnight without telling me. If you have questions, feel free to ask about the changes and feel free to play around and answer questions if you feel you can help someone find how to access something. <BR> <BR> It's pretty much "Who Moved My Cheese?" so feel free to play and help out here. <BR> <BR> Today's question is; Have you read the book, ... Thu, 1 May 2014 10:06:48 EST QOTD 04.29.14 Wednesday! I loved the answers from yesterday (where and weather). Thanks everyone for participating. <BR> <BR> Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Does your garbage collection company ever offer free e-Scrap (electronics) drop off or collection days? <BR> <BR> Have a grand one! Wed, 30 Apr 2014 04:40:09 EST QOTD 04.29.14 Tuesday! ONe of those days where you have to do everything twice or more just to get it done. <BR> <BR> Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Trying to boost the team again - so if you have some SparkFriends that you think might enjoy our team of asking questions once a day and nothing else, just invite them. Also, any questions you'd like to see asked, just let me know and I'll get them on here, or volunteer for a day of asking and you can ask directly, I just want to know what day you'll be doing that... Tue, 29 Apr 2014 09:30:22 EST QOTD 04.28.14 Monday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Already done with the required fitness of the day and now it's time to get ready for work, which will be more fitness all day long (Yeah!). <BR> <BR> What are you eating for breakfast this morning? <BR> <BR> Have a good one!

Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> What is your favorite color? <BR> <BR> I seem to be stuck on colors lately - don't know why, but might as well use some of it. <BR> <BR> Have a good one. Fri, 25 Apr 2014 09:21:02 EST QOTD 04.24.14 Thursday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> I am spending the day trying to catch up on personal life things, like the finances, the housework, meal planning, grocery shopping, etc. I've got many things to do, but I am not going to stress over not getting it all done in one day as I have 4 days to work on it. I do have a problem with procrastination that I fight with constantly, and usually overcome it, but a continuous fear is in my mind of failure, which can cause stress in itself. Do you fight wi... Thu, 24 Apr 2014 07:52:57 EST QOTD 04.23.14 Wednesday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> I hope all of you are feeling great, making your meal and fitness plans and keeping to those plans. I know how hard it is and even when I don't keep to my plans, I keep making those plans because I try to keep to them. I keep to them more than not, but if I didn't have the plans ready, I would just give up. Never ever give up. <BR> <BR> If you haven't sent me a SparkMail with your birthday (month/day) only, please, then do that soon, please. <BR> <BR> To... Wed, 23 Apr 2014 06:46:12 EST QOTD 04.22.14 Earth Day Tuesday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> I used to work one floor up from the Dept of Ecology and Environmentalists in Seattle! Every Earth Day they would bring out thousands of Douglas Fir seedlings and give them away if you promised to plant it in the earth, not a pot, and let it grow. <BR> <BR> I used to plant a tree every year, even though I was ticked at them for what they did to the logging industry over some innocent owl all in the name of protection that didn't need to be. However, I figu... Tue, 22 Apr 2014 10:16:00 EST QOTD 04.21.14 Monday! Good morning, and welcome to NELLJONES, JANET552, and NOW-OR-NOW! I hope everyone gives them a grand welcome, too. <BR> <BR> Do you feel like you struggle to get in your fruit & veggie and water allotments every day? Do you have a more difficult time on the "weekends" and "holidays" to keep up with your plan? <BR> <BR> Have a great one! Mon, 21 Apr 2014 06:32:55 EST QOTD 04.20.14 Easter Sunday! Happy Easter, my Friends! <BR> <BR> Just got home and unpacked, then had to fight with my computer to get it reset and working again. Had a great trip - tired as a husky after a long pull on the Iditarod! <BR> <BR> Have you been to Alaska, and if you haven't, what would you want to see and do? If you have been to Alaska, what did you do and see? Would you go again? <BR> <BR> Have a great one! <BR> <BR> Sun, 20 Apr 2014 16:08:42 EST QOTD 4/19/14 Saturday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> We used to love mini vacas on the weekends. We would pick a weekend, once a month and plan it, then go. Yes, we had our favorite snacks most were unhealthy (I love Cheetos)' but not so much any more, and our snacks have changed to fruits and veggies with a white bean dip that I love with raw veggies. <BR> <BR> What are your favorite snacks? And if they have changed over time due to your efforts at becoming more healthy, what are those changes? <BR> <BR> H... Sat, 19 Apr 2014 07:07:25 EST QOTD 04.18.14 Friday! Good morning, Friends. Thank you, IMA for doing yesterday's question. It was a wonderful question and I appreciate you jumping in on it. We left home right after work Wednesday, got here very early in the morning Thursday and then fell asleep out of pure exhaustion. When I woke up, it was visit with in-laws and I didn't think of SP until later in the evening as we had a full day of running around getting some exercise that we desperately needed and wanted. Long road trip, my knees were k... Fri, 18 Apr 2014 08:48:59 EST 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!

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...

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 ...

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 March Birthday Members! Happy Birthday to all the QOTD March Birthdays! I know mine is today, (as well as Justin Beibers - which doesn't make me happy) and I think there is another birthday this month, too, but I don't have my list and don't remember who it was. <BR> <BR> So join me in wishing all of our members with birthdays this month. <BR> <BR> If you haven't told me your birthday (month and day only, please) then send me a SparkMail and let me know. If you remember who else has a birthday this month, add to... Sat, 1 Mar 2014 15:02:29 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. Gonna see. <BR> <BR> Have you ever felt like your vocabulary could use a boost of a few more words? <BR> <BR> Have a great ... Thu, 20 Feb 2014 06:02:33 EST QOTD CHAT 02.19.14 Wednesday! 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! Happy Valentine's Day, my friends! <BR> <BR> <em>129</em> <BR> <BR> Do you scrapbook? <BR> <BR> Have a great one! Fri, 14 Feb 2014 08:54:52 EST QOTD CHAT 02.13.14 Thursday! 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! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> Have you ever found that you have made a recipe so many times, that you've memorized the recipe? <BR> <BR> Have a blessed day! <em>129</em> <em>214</em> Wed, 12 Feb 2014 08:50:56 EST QOTD 02.11.14 Tuesday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> I guess I will start the Chat thread, too, as I'm the only one that can make it a sticky. 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! Fri, 7 Feb 2014 14:41:08 EST Happy Birthday to Our February TeamMates! Hey, Everyone! 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. However, undaunted, I am putting out a Happy Birthday to any teammate that has not given me their birthday (month and day only, please), So if I have missed you and your birthday is this month, please let me know right away. <BR> <BR> Have a wonderful Birthday! <em>144</em> <em>1...

Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> I've had breakfast, done a load of clothes, chased some ants, and done my exercise for the day. Collected several SparkPoints already, too. <BR> <BR> What types of sugar do you like? <BR> <BR> Have a great one! Wed, 5 Feb 2014 10:35:29 EST QOTD 02.04.14 Tuesday!

Sun, 2 Feb 2014 09:53:13 EST QOTD 02.01.14 Saturday! Good morning on this first February day of 2014! <BR> <BR> Here's another one from DebPre. What is your favorite TV show? <BR> Thanks, DP. <BR> <BR> Have a great one. Sat, 1 Feb 2014 06:09:02 EST QOTD 01.31.14 Friday! Last day of January 2014! Seems like time is flying. <BR> <BR> Today's question is from DebPre - thanks. <BR> <BR> Do you like grits or hominy? <BR> <BR> Have a good one my friends. Fri, 31 Jan 2014 09:09:25 EST QOTD 01.30.14 Thursday! Good morning, Friends! <BR> <BR> What's your favorite flower? DebPre gave us this question. Thank's DP! <BR> <BR> Have a good one. Thu, 30 Jan 2014 04:57:18 EST QOTD 01.29.14 Wednesday! Hello, Friends! <BR> <BR> I am late today, one of those things I do got in the way again. Sorry. <BR> <BR> This question is from DebPre - Do you have a pet? <BR> <BR> Thank you DP. Appreciate the questions. <BR> <BR> Have a great one! Wed, 29 Jan 2014 14:01:50 EST QOTD 01.28.14 Tuesday! Good morning, Friends. Today is Tuesday and coffee day. I hate going to it but have to due to Chorus business today. <BR> <BR> Do you like coffee or tea and what flavors or extras do you love? <BR> <BR> Have a wonderful day! 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!
