We usher today and need to be at church early.

Last night we had dinner with a couple that were celebrating their 67th wedding anniversary. They are the happiest couple and their health is good for this time. They are 87 and 88 years old. We really enjoyed the evening

Blessings to all of you today and praying you have a good week ahead.

Yes we do get blessings and some we just never even realize are there. I am blessed today to be up and had time to catch up on my scripture reading. We (husband and I) were able to get much of the outside done The grass has grown twice as fast this week. It is cool today only in the 30'a. I covered my plants. One of my friends is stopping by for a few minutes to visit. I can enjoy the day.

Vicky how great that you will finish on time. When the kids go into June they are there in body and dreaming in their minds. My friend is going to try to do some creative stations in June to keep their attention.

We usher on Sunday so we need to be up and there early.

Have a wonderful weekend all.
Sue

Ann, I have so many blessings I cannot count them all--but lately it has been getting beads for free or trading an item for them! I am going to make my sister's birthday presents this year and have been having a blast doing it...of course, my friends and family are high on my list too!

Sue, we've been making up days all along. I've only had 2 days off since the beginning of the year. All the rest have been make up days. We finish up the first week in June, because we didn't start until the Wednesday after Labor Day, so basically, we're finishing up on time.

Doing fine so far today staying on track. Hope tomorrow goes as well...

Sue: I think the fact of the looming summer and the weather when we all wear much less has got me finally into getting back on track with the exercise. Last Friday we walked a lot at a park with the family, and then on Monday we walked again at another park. Looking back those were some warm days. Boy it is sure nippy today. I decided against the parka but that snow on our car led me to wear a hat, scarf and gloves and boots! I know that the spring is coming and perhaps one day it will stay. Glad to hear you don't have to go back to the doctor for I think it was two years and that you are going in the right direction for keeping muscles strong.

Hello to one and all - I read a devotion in the newspaper and it was talking about a scripture that says the Lord loads us up daily with blessings. One of my blessings is my grandkids....how about you all?

Thank you Liz. I need to do yard work too but it is cold and going to rain again. I do better when I stay out of the kitchen and don't have a lot of people to feed. I can weed or rake and enjoy the birds and outside and not be tempted with food.

Vicky did I ask you if you have make up days this year at your school because of the winter weather? Our schools are going into June for a couple weeks because they have to have180 days of school. The seniors get off because graduation is a set date in May.

Stay healthy all and we will be fit for summer.
Blessings Sue.

Hello, Carol went with me to my appointment. They took x-rays of the knee and my own knee. both looked good. He was pleased and said to keep exercising and working the legs. Call if I have any problem and see him in 2 years. He told me to keep the muscle strong. Carol and I had lunch In Washington Pa and shopped at a place called Hobby Lobby. It was a good day. I feel relief and tired. We drove there and back with the high winds and didn't get lost. That was good too

Off to Curves this am. I am so sorry to see it close. I think I will need a DVD of exercise from Sparkpeople. It's that or dirve further away to the Lakeside Gym.

Thanks for your support. Good to hear form everyone. Yes we are a busy group and God is our strength.

Hey! :-) hummus n veggies is great, I think I made myself sick of it though. Good with crackers too or those pretzel crisps..I may get back into that again. Got my workout in after work and ate healthy all day! Yay! Every time I felt a craving I drank flavored water and I drank at least a gallon today..tracked too. I'm on a roll, lol...grilled some chicken and made an oriental stir fry(tasted pretty good) Today makes a year my Mom's passing..it was a beautiful sunny day, reminding me of her..it brought me such peace..My heart still aches for her and I miss her so much..but I'm doing what she would've wanted me to..Tomorrow I'm going in late since the kids are home this week, planning on going to the gym & spending time with them.

Wow, it sounds as if everyone is really busy- I have been doing a new bible study and enjoying it very much! I have been doing some beading to keep my mind off food, and I also started writing in my prayer journal again, so if you need prayer, let me know! Blessings.

Hi, everyone. I didn't get much sleep at all last night--restless dogs and a restless husband. I forewent walking at lunch, but I'll go walking around our place when I get home tonight. DH is making pizza with whole grain crust and plenty of protein and veggies. He thinks the whole grain crust will taste terrible. I think it will be good. At least I can eat it much better than I can have Pizza Hut or some such. I hope you all have a wonderful, abstinent week (whatever that means to you).

We serve hummus and veggies at our school! Hard day for me today emotionally. Gossip mongers...grrrr...anyway, my devotions today were on the tongue. Can you imagine? I believe God has a sense of humor, but this wasn't funny. I pray I handled it the way He wanted me to.

Pretty windy here today, Sue, but no rain...

Having a rough time staying on track so far this week. I'll keep trying...

Hi all, I read back about 10 messages but Ia m not spending the kind of time on Spark People needed to keep up with 5 teams all the time. I enjoy chatting with everyone and seeing how you are doing but I haven't been getting on until late most days and than I am tired.
Trying to keep up good habits and eliminate bad. Right now I am doing hummus and vegetables which I think is good.
Got a big habit set back at Easter and have not put things back together yet.
Keep on keeping on.

I am not skilled to understand what GOD has willed what GOD has planned I only know at his right hand stands one who is my SAVIOR

Up early and ready to go to Pittsburgh with my daughter. I have had a good time at Curves and feel my leg is stronger but we will see. I am hoping I will get a good report.

We are expecting high winds and more rain. I hope we don't have the rain on the way there or back.
More later. Sue

Six pound down this month is great. It give me a boost to hear good news

Tomorrow is my 2 year check up at the Bone and Joint Center at Magee Hospital in Pitts. Pa. My daughter is going with me and we are having lunch after the apt. We re also stopping at our niece's home to drop off a box of things to her. I am really looking forward to the day.

Today was Curves in the morning and play music at a nursing home in the afternoon,

Always busy. Monday and it starts again

Six pounds is a big deal! Good for you! Weekends are so tough for me. Gotta be a lot more picky when I eat out, and not go for the old favorites. Yesterday I ordered a mushroom swiss burger and got coleslaw instead of fries. Good coleslaw, not much dressing but what there was of it was just enough. Threw away the bun, too. Still...not the best choice I could have made...

We have a lovely sunny day here in Pa, at least right at the moment it's not raining, but it was earlier. Bob took my motorcycle to get inspected, and got wet on the way home...

Enjoy the rest of your day, all...

Loved reading the posts, I found them very encouraging. Got a few small things done but got to take things easy at the moment. Baby steps get it done in the end. Eating is ok, back to basics today. Managed to get rid of 6lbs this month, still got 94 to go but a good start. Have a good day team, blessings. Xx

Today was another beautiful day!! emoticon A little cooler but nice. My plan for this morning was to pick up lawn and leaf bags and pick up some of the sticks and dead grass and roof shingles that the wind had blown all over the yard this past winter emoticon But those plans changed when i received an early morning text saying I had to teach children's church because the teacher couldn't make it. emoticon Thankfully I had an old craft I had never did with the children and i was already at Walmart so i could buy the snack emoticon and I had all the craft necessities i needed at home. emoticon Although there was a child that got dropped off half way during school time and it made things very difficult and I lost my cool and had to send the child back to his mom. emoticon Then it was off to go home to make sandwiches and a fruit tray for the gathering at my Dad's house. emoticon My dad made a clam boil which was very yummy emoticon Everyone was able to make it which was so exciting!! My dad was filled with joy and he kept tearing up. After dinner we all went to the cemetary to visit my mom and my brother said some kind words and we cried emoticon and laughed and reminisced just as she would have wanted it. Afterwards we went back to my Dad's for coffee emoticon and dessert. I'm so happy for the family God gave me because I wouldn't trade them for the world. emoticon I got rid of some more recycling stuff and my brother secured the neighbor's fence that had fallen over the winter which is wonderful because my neighbor had told us he had no intentions of putting the fence back up emoticon One of our good friends at church gave us the paint/primer/stain blocker we need to repaint the ceiling in the kitchen emoticon Blessings emoticon I do have so much to do still-yard work and house work, touching up some rooms, outside garage,house etc. I have faith it will get done. My only struggle right now is I can't stop myself from eating all the wrong things-Candy,Chips,IceCream,,,, emoticon I really have to get a hold on this and I have to try and get on here more often, Okay I'm done rambling emoticon I want everyone to have a blessed week, that may we make the right choices this week and lose some weight!! emoticon

Sounds like everyone has some wonderful plans. Yesterday I cleared off the back deck and got my table, chairs, and umbrella set up. Apparently not too good with the umbrella, because a gust of wind came along and my husband saw it sailing thru the air a while later. I forgot to tighten the base...oh, well...anyway, we got the grill set up and I'm ready to cook out. Bring on the food!

Today is church, CMA meeting and probably laundry before I go to bed...

Have a lovely day, all...

Liz it is good to hear you are getting thing on the list done. Prayers for you tomorrow at your family gathering.

Vicky plumbing fixed is wonderful.

I am also inching ahead. Spring is finally here and the rain is about every other day. There is still work on the flower beds.

I walked over 8000 steps yesterday. Our Kiwanis Club had a pancake breakfast to raise money for the projects for local kids. We were so busy that I have 7000 steps between 7 am and 10:30 am. I do have to say my legs are tired today.

This is a busy week. Monday we play music at a nursing home. Tuesday my daughter and I are going to Pittsburgh Magee Bone and Join Center for my check up on my knee It had stiffened up a bit. but there is no pain. I was kind of glad my husband had a Good Will board meeting so he couldn't go with me. Carol (daughter) is taking the day off and we are also shopping etc. It has been a while since we have had real Mother daughter time.

Blessings to all of you today. Sue

Getting things done around here, just need to get my bad eating habits under wraps. Roof done. Car repairs done. Raked 3/4 of the backyard today. Spent a beautiful day with the family @ the playground and in the yard. Barbecued today, tried to get some walking in at the playground. Tomorrow we celebrate with my family my Mom's passing, it's been a year on Tuesday. My dad's in charge of making the clamboil, it should keep him occupied.Hoping to hit the gym or go for a run tomorrow. So glad to hear everyone is doing great, get out and enjoy this beautiful weather, I am. :))

Plumbing problems are definitely a thing of the past, but my poor yard looks like there was a tractor pull on it. What a mess, and a lot of mud.

Things changing at work again. The lunchroom monitor they hired in January has quit already, and without notice. Extra work for the rest of us (me, Betsy and Randy) so I've been getting home later every day this week.

Sounds like I'm grumpy, but I'm not. Things happen and we take them in stride.

Hope you all are having a lovely day!

Okay where did all the days go this time. It is Thursday and too busy again. I've made it to Curves 2 times this week and will go again tomorrow. Soooo the good news is I am back to the plateau where I got stuck. Off with the extra pounds from Easter and feeding everyone. I am determined to be careful and drop a few more. I am so glad to see I am not alone in this yo yo up and down. Life is not always easy and events get in the way.

Praying for all of you to succeed and stay well.

Wow, there has been a lot of things happening.

Yay Sue - no money lost and you get to exercise...yahoo. I walked a lot in a park with my daughter in law on Sunday. Did more walking inside on Saturday. And bonus, I did not eat any fries. Even though they were free because they were offering them at a new food market. B ought lots of veggies and fruit though.

Vicky - I pray that all your plumbing problems will be a thing of the past. We had a flood in our basement in 2014 about a year ago when our sump pump gave out. Whew, we got some money back from our insurance because we had a special flood package and because it was the sump pump.

Sounds like everyone else is having a great time. Rose it is good to know you will be praying for us all. What a comfort.

Well hubby is here to pick me up from work. Bye for now.

Monday again and back to the busy life. I hope to get to Curves this morning and start the week right with exercise.

Play music this afternoon and get ready for the rest of the week. I am up early as the dogs came to get me to let them out.. I am seeing a beautiful sunrise.

Have a good week all.

No sense trying to clean up our yard until Bob gets that ditch filled in. He's been working non-stop for 2 days, along with our grandson, Nathaniel, to fix our plumbing problems, and finally he is done outside. Now, to hear him banging around in the basement...

Holly & Haylee kept me company today. It's nice to have them here. It keeps me out of the fridge.

After church the friend came and he and my husband put the Lowrey organ in the car so we can play at a nursing home tomorrow. Then it was clean up twigs and stuff on the lawn so my husband could mow the grass. It looks better now.

Blessings to you this beautiful Sunday

Hey, all! It's a beautiful Saturday morning here in western Pa., but I'll be home here getting caught up on chores around the house. And we've had some plumbing problems, so Bob will be tracking in and out trying to reroute some water lines. I'm so grateful that winter has passed and he doesn't have to dig up frozen ground.

Trying to check in with the new members, but some of them block their pages, and I totally understand that. Just want them to know how much we appreciate them choosing us as one of their groups. Welcome to all newbies!

Well, the dust rag is calling my name, along with all the cleaning products under the sink. Have a lovely day, all...

Vicky

No I won't. My insurance pays for my exercise place. The place has to qualify for what is called "Silver Sneakers". The program only pays for times I go. They don't pay ahead. I am still hoping someone will buy the Curves place I don't know how comfortable I will be at the gym.

We had terrible storms today. Several places lost power. One of my friends lost the power in their apt. building and lost TV, phone, etc. too.

So far I have really done well this week. Thanks for all the encouragement and support. I really appreciate this forum.

Sue: Are you going to lose your money for the exercise place that is closing.....or do you have to drive far to the other place you mentioned? Just me being nosy. A long time ago, when I lived in Sarnia, Ontario, I paid for three years membership at a place called Vic Tanny's. I only got one year's worth and never got back any money. Boo hoo for me. I sincerely hope that does not happen to you.

Have a great weekend everybody. A special hello to all the new people in our group.

Ann

Liz, that is good news. Thanks for the note.

Starting this week off well. Today will be my 3rd Curves trip. I also raked outside and put out flower pots on the porch. I will weigh in on Monday again. I feel better with the exercise. Our Curves is closing on April 30th . The lady couldn't find a buyer for the business. I really will need to find someplace else or drive out to Lakeside Fitness center.

Part of the Easter problem with weight gain was salt and sugar.
Friday again and the week is gone.
Wishing everyone a good weekend
Sue

Good to hear that everyone is feeling better Liz. I pray for your husband that he does not have any ongoing effects from that concussion. Protect him Lord, keep him safe as he returns to work.

Well I am wearing capris today and although it is usually quite drafty where I sit at work, I have a three quarters length tunic top on because it is going up to 15 degrees celcius today. So, shoes without socks and welcome to spring. Ok, the rain did keep me up along with the thunder and lightning last night but I choose to believe the old adage that April showers bring May flowers!

emoticon emoticon I am here at the computer and its only two minutes before I am scheduled to start work. On your mark, get set, go out and have a super day everyone! A special hi to all the newest members....be blessed today!

Thank you everyone for the prayers. Grandma is home today still healing but on her way to better health. Auntie Norma is much better and should be going home soon as well. My cold is almost completely gone and I was able to do the elliptical trainer for 30 mins today :-) MY husband is feeling slightly better but is returning to work tomorrow. I'm hoping he will be healed soon.
I'm starting the j lo detox for 7 days to give me a boost with this weight loss. I am working out and eating healthy too so I'll keep you guys posted. Have a wonderful weekend.:-)

Liz, I am adding my prayers to Sue's and others for your family. (for you and your Grandma, Aunt Norma and husband) I know you will be so pleased to get that new roof.

Here are some of the things that I found our life was in common to some of the posts I read today.

Sue - I could feel guilty too because I keep losing and gaining weight. I applaud
your friend for losing over l00 pounds, my gosh what an accomplishment. Lets pull together and instead of feeling bad, lets start all over. I know I will lose more now that I can get outside again. You will too. We can do it together. A new season, a new start. Recently I started eating fries again. Not McDonalds but the ones that are home made and yummy. I do not want to continue on with that at all.

Vicky, my husband went to the eye doctor too on Monday. I was off so I could drive him - he passed the glaucoma test with flying colours. I pray you will not need to get new glasses or contacts at all.

My sister Linda also had a birthday during Easter....hers was yesterday on Easter Monday.

Yes, I have to join with others that I ate too much over Easter...but I definitely increased my walking and did some gardening. We spent as much time as we could outside. Some days were raining, some sunny and others were kind of in between.

Sunday, we saw some WWII training planes doing exercises in the sky near our airport they were bright yellow in colour. Amazing!

I found a beautiful book at the Salvation Army about a young girl who is a painter and who writes beautiful poems. She is very young. The book was written in 2006 and she has been drawing since she was 4. I believe her name is spelled Aike. The book had pictures of her paintings, her biography up to then, and some of her poems. It is all inspired by God. Beautiful and simply amazing.

Well believe it or not I do have more to say, but it is back to work for me. My lunch time is drawing to an end!

LIz, I will pray for you and your Grandma, Aunt Norma and husband. When it all comes at the same time it is hard. I know we are not to get more than we can handle but sometimes it sure gets close to too much.

Weighed in today and started back on my planned food. I am determaned to keep to the tracking and portion control..

Raining here and dark.

Sue your doing a great job. Keep at it, the change s will come. We are too quick to give up when anything becomes difficult or when don't see results right away(talking about myself, of course..lol) I'm finally getting over this horrible cold, cough,sinus,congestion thingy..I had to keep up with Easter and everything going on so I didn't get much rest, but honestly I think that's part of the reason I'm feeling better.
We are getting our roof done this weekend, I can't believe it's finally here!! We have needed this from the time we bought the house in 2008. So many things have gotten in the way but we put our foot down this year, enough is enough!! :-) it will be such a load off our shoulders..
Easter was fun, spent it with family, went to church and it was my sister s b-day..
Unfortunately we have some family members that are in the hospital because of these colds going around, pneumonia..etc..if you would all be so kind as to pray for my family, grandma & auntie norma.as well as my husband who managed to get himself a concussion at work last Friday and is still feeling the effects today..God Bless xo

Another week starting. I had way too much Easter yesterday. We went to the sunrise service. We visited friends and had a good day.

My friend that is on Weight Watchers was with me today. She is starting back tomorrow. She has lost over 100 pounds. I am so ashamed as I keep going up and down and I really need to get off 15 pounds or 20 if possible. I drop a few and then they sneak back.

The March Madness helped me a lot. I am looking forward to starting that again.

Happy Resurrection Day, all! We had breakfast at the church, then service, then more visiting after church. It's been a lovely day here in Pa., but I've eaten entirely too much this weekend and have a feeling if I'm going to break even at weigh in next Friday, I'm gonna have to get to it! I made apple cinnamon bread pudding in the crock pot for the breakfast and brought more than enough back home. I won't be taking that again! I like to make things that they eat all up so I don't have to deal with the leftovers!

Work tomorrow then an eye doctor's appointment after. Please pray it all turns out okay. Not sure yet if I'm getting new glasses, or if I'm getting just my contacts. I have an awful time finding frames that I like, so as long as my prescription hasn't changed much, I think I'll keep what I've got. I rarely wear them anyway...

Enjoy your Sunday...

Happy Easter! Blessings to you today and always. It is a beautiful Easter day. We went to the sunrise service and the sun really came out a big fireball. It is now 60 degrees and wonderful.

My flowers are blooming. It really feels like spring. We are not eating a big dinner today because our daughter and husband are not here. I am fixing the dinner tomorrow Carol will come by on Tuesday to pick up food for them.

He is risen.

Ann you covered it all. Yes we are so blessed. My husband is retired radiologist. He also worked in a tech center internet service after he retired. He is my go to for healthe and tech stuff.

The Maundy Thursday service is a confessional service and also a corporate or common confession of sin and forgiveness. Then there is also a time for you to go up for a personal forgiveness. I always feel that Our Lord gives me a new lease for the year after he forgives me all I think of that I wish I had done differently last year. So I start fresh again.

It was to snow today but the sun is out and my small flowers are blooming.

I am going to lunch with friends. We have no company coming tomorrow and so Easter will be quiet at our house.

Happy Easter and many blessings to each of you.
Sue

Sue: I didn't know your hubby was a retired doctor! Berry I pray strength into that ankle in the mighty name of Jesus. Protect that ankle from future hurt and pain Lord.

Just the other day someone asked me if I get arthritis in the ankle that I broke in May 2013....I honestly said NO......send Arthur to get his itis somewhere else!

Sue: I am so glad to hear that your friend does not have Lupus. Give the doctors wisdom Lord and get this woman back on her feet and enjoying health. You are the great physician Lord, whatever way you want to heal her is ok with us. You carried so much for us and took our punishment for our sins and by your stripes we were healed! Manifest healing for this woman in Jesus name.

What an honour to be involved in a footwashing service. I only went to one a long time ago and it was quite humbling. Oh and Sue, I can just taste those pickled beets yummy.....I have never had a pickled egg though

Vicky you had such a good idea keeping the Easter candy in the freezer. Our grands do not like chocolate......and they are related to me????? wow how did that happen. Think about all the problems they will not have. Of course, then there are Jelly Beans which they do like.....

Liz: There is one rule about vacation and gaining weight.....this too shall pass! I was reading an article and I think I mentioned it before that if when most people who overeat on holidays would just go back to their normal eating .....it will go away....but if you starve yourself you may gain more back when you have an uncontrollable urge.....don't know if that is true, but its worth a thought or two.

We had an awesome Good Friday breakfast this a.m. at church and a short but beautiful service. We have the grands all day on Sunday and Abby and I are gonna get dressed up in our spring duds! She even has a hat from the dollar store and ribbons and all. Looking forward to Easter Sunday together.

Did some yard work when I got home and changed into my boots, cut back a rose bush way back and pulled out some creeping charley.....I hope I did not kill my rose bush ....a lot was dead and it was almost four feet tall.

I felt good about getting a lot of data entry into work for a yearly cutoff on Performance Appraisals. I did 450 this month and around 700 in the last two months. Whew thanks for help from my co-worker there were only three or four I could not due for one reason or another. I am pleased. Thanks Holy Spirit for being my counsellor and my guide!

We had our get together with grands and my daughter in law on Thursday evening had Tilapia fish, salad and rice it was good. Played Uno with the kids, boy they are getting to be a fun age. Played two other games just the adults afterward.

Have a wonderful blessed Easter in case I don't get back to Sparkpeople before Tuesday!

Praying for relief from pain, Berry4, and that it was an isolated incident, not something that will happen again.

Our weather here yesterday was beautiful, too, until right about the time I got off work, then the rain hit. Some say we need the rain, but right now I need the sunshine...

Have a wonderful Good Friday, all...

Sorry to hear fo the fall. I hope it isn't too bad. My husband said that you ice it for the first 24 hours and then heat. (retired doctor)

We had a wonderful start of the day yesterday and then the storm hit. This morning is still dark and rain. There was a repot that said we may have snow tomorrow. I was hoping for spring.

Last night I was in charge of facilitating the foot washing. I was glad when it was over. There were not too many at church. Many stayed home because of the very hard rain.

Friday and this week is over. I am still trying to stay really good and on plan. Mellie got me started and I just have to get through Sunday dinner.

Just walked out the back door, stepped down to the step and my right ankle completely gave way causing me to twist, fall and land on my backside. I sat there for awhile. No one was around to help me get up.
Now to determine how bad a sprain...whether to ice it, wrap it, or if I need crutches tomorrow?? -- The bigger question is: WHY did my ankle give out & cause this? WILL it happen again?

Today I got up to sunshine and warmer outside. We went to do a few errands and then in 20 minutes it was black and the storm hit. The weather said we may; have snow on Saturday morning.

I have made more pickled eggs and beets. Everyone seems to like them. I am baking donuts and coffee cake gluten free for church Sunday

It is almost Friday and then the weekend. It will go fast.
Blessing to each of you.

Good to know, thank you, Berry4.

Today was a very good day at work. Must be because we get a few days off now! We were wearing crowns while we were serving and all the little kids were asking why. We didn't really have an answer, we just did it! It hasn't been that fun in a long time!

Dropped another pound. Hopefully I can behave myself while I'm off work! I have to go to the store for something to make for Easter Breakfast at the church. Which reminds me...I can get everyone's Easter candy out of the freezer now...

Have a lovely evening, all...

Good to catch up with everyone. Yes prayers are needed. One of my prayers was answered today. My close friend has been sick off and on all year. She teaches in a Middle school. They were testing for an autoimmune disease. (Lupus). Today the doctor said that is wasn't that. We are breathing easier now.

This week is one of many services and prayers. I pray for all of you to stay healthy and blessed.

Hi everyone! Started my new bible study this week and it looks like it will be very good! I am excited about it! I, too, say thank you Mellie for starting March Madness. I think it will help motivate me during April. Hope you all have a blessed day== will be praying for you Ann, and for Holly's bible study. Blessings upon you!

Thanks for the prayers for the Bible study. No one showed up, but we feel that this may be the way it has to begin. The enemy may think he's won, but this is only the beginning and God has already given her the victory.

Ann, my husband watches Andrew Wommack every day. Talk about receiving knowledge straight from God! We have that book also. Bob reads over and over!

I'm down another pound! Yea!!!
