I use one at work that is how I know I want one. They are weird but once you get use to it that will I'm sure change your mind. Takes awhile to get use to. My shoulder doesn't bother me at all when I use that keyboard.

Sorry about the shoulder. Those split keyboards are really weird; I've tried to type on them and I get all muddled up. I hope you can get used to it quickly.

Writing is not something that interests me right now. I have a bad shoulder. I need to get the keyboard that has a split spacebar. I will be getting that on the Easter weekend. I will be getting a new to me computer then.

Lucky you Corrina and Carol that you can both get them, seeing as you are both in Canada. Well, make the best of having them available.
As to your suggestion, Corrina, hmm, maybe I will picket if only I could find a few more willing ladies.

Get over there and grab yourself some!
For low-fat, they are surprisingly good.
Enjoy!

You must petition the grocery chains in Malta to carry the SkinnyCows! You must picket in front of the stores and demand that your needs for SkinnyCows be met immediately, or you shall take your business elsewhere! SkinnyCow lovers everywhere--UNITE!

Gosh the name might sound weird but you are sure lucky Corrina to have these available...I have just made a search and I see that cones and bars are also available in low-fat, low-cal!

Just the name is weird. These little yummers have often saved me from digging into the fatty ice-cream.
I need all the help I can get...

Skinny-Cows are divine, although probably not very nutritious. But, if you're longing for ice-cream, they do the job. Low fat, around 100 cals...they come in various novelties like ice-cream sandwiches, etc. I get them at the grocery store. Wish I could mail you some!

Ah, thanks for the gentle words. What a sweet poem. I treated myself to a fragrant bubble bath and then had a salad and some thin-crust spinach pizza, and I feel far less grumpy now. The skinny-cow ice-cream sandwich helped a lot, too!
Thanks for the cuddle.

Corrina I hope this will help motivate you

Another Chance
Helen Steiner Rice

How often we wish for another chance
to make a fresh beginning.
A chance to blot out our mistakes
And change failure into winning.
It does not take a new day
To make a brand new start,
It only takes a deep desire
To try with all our heart.
To live a little better
And to always be forgiving
And to add a little sunshine
To the world in which we're living.
So never give up in despair
And think that you are through,
For there's always a tomorrow
And the hope of starting new.

Helen Steiner Rice

So let us forgive ourselves and start anew...in fact I think we are on the right path getting back on here.

Please accept my apologies for abandoning all of you; life overtook me and everything has gotten away from me.
I found out my thyroid is not working, which would explain why I have been so frustratingly unable to lose any weight. And why I am so tired and unmotivated and depressed....and freezing cold all the time (which doesn't bode well when it's January and you live in Canada...) But I have started on a thyroid replacement hormone and I hope I will begin to feel more like myself very soon.
I am committing right now to checking this team's postings each and every day.
I am ready to be inspired again.

If my daughter comes out like she says she is then we can decorate the tree together. I have other plans if she doesn't come. I can keep those other plans even if she does come. I have a standing invitation at my friend's house for Christmas. I am alone otherwise.

Hello again, I'm off to decorate our tree with DH, DD, DS and his girlfriend. We are having company tonight too, in-laws for supper and hopefully we will have time to watch a Christmas movie.
Hope you are all having a good weekend.

Ok.

I have a busy day today. Starting off with soaking my feet while I'm talking to someone on the phone.

To the store to buy a pair of slacks maybe even a top. Making buns last of all.

All of that should keep me out of trouble.

Rioeen, thanks for your encouraging comments on my vegetable patch. I feel for you husband, missing his garden. I love having a garden and would have to be really incapacitated to not have one. It is so satisfying to see the plants grow, and I like the exercise, somehow more satisfying than going through a mindless routine.
Love n Hugs,
Jan

Your vegetable patch certainly looks great. Thanks for sharing...my DH would love to have something like that, he misses the backyard we used to have in Canada and there is not much you can have in pots in an apartment but we try not to complain ... if we move we should certainly look for more planting ground emoticon

Rioeen, my vegetable patch is flourishing, I'll put a pic on that I took only a couple of weeks after we started it. I am getting all my greens from it now.

Hello it seems everyone is busy here.
I wish I had more time to spend with all of you, I am getting into the spirit of Christmas doing some crafts and making home made cards and writing poems too.
The weather here has gotten so much cooler, temperatures have gone down drastically for this time of year ~ usually it is still quite warm and sunny on our little island but we have had lots of rain and storms already!
Hope we can get back together for a chat sometime soon.
God bless

Hello Erna, nice to meet you here.
Yes Corrina, time has gotten away. Glad to read your news, that your girls are settled and the exciting new about the Publisher.
We have had a couple of trips away, the latest to see youngest granddaughter, who attends a performing arts college, in her college gala at a central venue in Sydney, and visit with them afterwards. It was a wonderful time, but we are home now.
I have been working hard on a new vege patch, and even though I planted it in blazing heat, it has been raining since, and I haven't lost a plant. I am thrilled wih it.
I really want to gt back to Sparkpage, and look forward to catching up with everyone more often.
Take care and God Bless.

Hello to all
The time has once again gotten away from me....
My girls are all in university now, but they are only half an hour away--which has translated into a lot of impromptu rescue trips for me...
There's a publisher looking at my Alma College novel with a promise to get back to me in November some time...please cross your fingers for me! I am excited just to have someone read one of my books, let alone consider it.
Hope this finds you all well. I will be checking in again very soon!

Lead me not into temptation; I can find the way myself.
