    tt, that's a favorite of a different SIL of mine than you "know" (the wife of a brother of DH) for the same reasons.  DH enjoys Bud Light as does much of his family.  I'm with your kids...as you've guessed!  LOL!

    So interesting reading your beer likings. I usually don't drink it - prefer red wine or I would drink the non alcoholic beer - O'doul or whatever they call it. But now that our sons have started brewing it, I kind of like it. So many different tastes. Unfortunately our PB son, who was the instigator, cannot do it any longer in his tiny apartment, but I have all his brewing stuff here. Anyone into brewing their own beer?
    However our TX son have started brewing seriously. Made some wonderful Ales. Hope he will have some real wonderful Christmas beer for us, when we get there for Christmas. Hohoho!

    Oh my goodness.  The reliable source being one of the 2 parents?  How exciting is that?  You'll be a Nana or Grandma or Grammy or what was my boss called by her grandchildren - something like MiMi - is that Italian for Grandma?  It was something like that.  Oh my, what a change that will make in your and Honey's lives.  There is nothing like the love and sense of protection you feel for a grandchild.  My oldest son (Lilly's grandfather) couldn't understand it until he became a "Papa" himself, and now his brother is about to become a "grampy".  Congratulations to the whole family!

    Oh, I missed the "un".  Still, someone had to tell that person, and I would think that would have had to be either the father or mother - so ----- I still say congratulations.  Going to be hard not to say anything to either of them until they decide to tell you.

    Re: September 2011

    Icer, how exciting!  Although, hearing from an unreliable source is arguably worse than not hearing anything at all...here's hoping you find out for real very soon, sooner than 30 days!

    Pingo, I'd love to brew my own beer.  But, DH, as noted, only drinks Bud Light and can't stomach anything else.  I'd like to SHARE the experience, not just do it for myself - no fun that way.  Too bad your son who enjoys it doesn't have the room, now.

    Actually..It is the Mother of my son's best friend....Once in a while..folks don't make the "connection"..I'll explain..You will laugh..I am sure..My son is/was a good boy/man...but he did engage in misdemeanor activities....he feared leaving the comfort of his/our hometown with a small parcel of this contraban...and decided to rid himself of it in his school yard...this was over ten years ago...so statute of limitions comes in here...well..he did finally call me...I went down to the station for my over 18 year old son...there is more to the story but I will allow your imaginations to fill in the blanks..night all

    Re: September 2011

    Hi everyone. Just winding down. PrincessCal, our day is Oct.7. I may go with Kars idea of a good set of cookingware. The stuff we have now is old and mismatched. I'll wrap it up for the two of us "From the Great Pumpkin, and Charlie Brown" (He likes to cook, and likes the Charlie Brown holiday shows)     Hi Winter, Your D.S. is as busy as my D.D.. I sometimes worry, as it seems that compared to me at her age, she's constantly on the go. T.t., love your Cheerio and pumpkin photo! Ican't believe it's almost Halloween already. I couldn't believe, walking home tonight, a florist shop just put a Christmas tree in the window!!! Pingo and Kar, Thanks for the advice regarding the convection oven. We have no instructions for it, so I will look it up on the internet. Oh, this place has really high ceilings, and I'm 5'2", the micro/convection oven is a bit difficult to reach even with my little step stool. I need to get a 4 stepper. Icer!, Wow, your life is way more interesting than mine. Take care, bg

    Re: September 2011

    That's exciting icer - hopefully your "source" is correct.

    That's a cute idea for your anniversary bg!

    TT - I'm with you, when I do drink beer it's a Michelob Ultra, I don't like anything heavy.

    Lots of work and crazy deadlines at work.  Good to have job security these days, but it's just exhausting.  Will have to keep plugging away!

    Re: September 2011

    Good morning,

    bg, I think that's a great idea for the anniversary gift.  That's what my sons/wives do, they decide on something they need/want and give it to each other for their anniversary.  There's always a separate card they buy for each other - with my boys, some mushy - some not!

    Woke up with a bit of a headcold/cough (I hope that's all it is) during the night and again this morning.  I'm a bit apprehensive, because I almost never get a cold, maybe it's Fall allergies, my nose is runny this morning.  Never had those before either.  Have shopping to do today and will see if they still sell ColdEze.  I used to take one of those at the start of a cold and what a difference it would make as far as length of cold and how I felt.  Don't see them advertised on TV any more, so they may have gone the way of a lot of over the counter remedies.

    Icer, my Icer, you were a bit too cryptic with your last message, or else my imagination is working overtime - you know how it is.  Were you telling us your son's friend gave your son's name at the station and so they called you?  It's morning as I read it, and I may be really slow in what you were saying, maybe after my coffee I will catch on.  Maybe there was not that much inuendo as I'm reading into it?  Only explain if you want to, like I said I'm a bit slow with these things.

    Princess, you haven't said if you're feeling better.  When's the next dr.'s visit?

    Cheerio is stretched out in the doorway, so I can't get very far without tripping over her.  Usually I put her food in her dish before I sit down at the computer, but had a couple of other threads I wanted to check, so she hasn't had breakfast yet.  Mine will be the reheated pancakes from yesterday.  BTW, did email my GD telling her how every time I make them I think of her.  Got an email back in the afternoon, saying she remembers those sleepovers and pancakes breakfasts too, and still loves pancakes.  Ah, sweet memories for us both.

    Re: September 2011

    bg, when it comes to cookware (my passion!), I believe quality and usage time is what matters most - I have mismatched cookware, but each piece earned its space in the kitchen.  He might have a favorite pan that he'd be lost without because he likes the way it distributes heat, browns without sticking, etc., that he wouldn't want to have replaced by the "same" piece in a set.  If he cooks often and would really appreciate the highest quality pans, I'd suggest slowly replacing his lesser quality, lesser used pans.  I've been building up my All Clad collection over about 5 years.  However, I understand the allure of a set, and not everyone who cooks would appreciate getting one great piece at a time over the next 5 years over dumping the "whole mess" and starting fresh.  I'll be glad to weigh in on whatever you're considering.  It might also be worth running it by DH.  I know it ruins the surprise, but cookware is like clothes - it's hard to buy things that really fit well and are loved (and used!) by the recipient without their involvement.

    tt, sorry you got up stuffy and headachey.  I'm pretty sure they still sell Zinc cold remedies, but not sure if your brand is still on the market.  Hope you find something that nips it in the bud for you!  (Fall allergies can come on to someone who's never had them before, and leaves are falling so mold is in the air.)

    All these trips down memory food lane...I have such fond memories of my grandmother's house.  My great-grandmother lived with them so when my mom and I were there, there was 4 generations of girls in the kitchen.  Washing dishes, cooking, baking, and all the while singing hymns like, "He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today, He walks with me and talks with me along life's narrow way..."  in 3 part harmony.  

    Gracie's napping, and I'll be cleaning today (spent all day in the kitchen yesterday) to prepare for my crochet girls to come over this afternoon.  I'll prepare a snack of some sort, too.  Not sure what yet.

    Oh, I posted a photo of Gracie in the broken tooth thread if you can stand to look at it.

    Blessings!

    Good morning everyone.  I'm not a beer drinker at all, I don't like the taste of it.  Icer, I hope your good news in true.  tt, sorry you are not feeling well today.  I believe I have seen ColdEze at CVS.  Kar, I saw the tooth picture, poor thing. I think it's wise of you to get a second opinion, the price they gave you seems very high to me.

    Re: September 2011

    I am sorry, I was trying to be clandestine..I won't bother..I will come right out and tell the tale. As you know..I am a cake decorator...folks here in town call me...Cake Lady...but that is not my name or the name of my business..just a nickname.

    This was about 10 years ago, the laws have changed a little bit now too.
    My son, as he was moving from one apartment here in our little town..to another town found some marijuana...He and his gf decided to pull over in a school yard to smoke it...They were promptly arrested...My son never used my name until they were booking him. Now the police had some latitude due to the fact that he didn't have an amount..so it could have gone either way..and as I stated, now...its a misdemeanor fine..except that he pulled into a school zone.

    He called me....I went down to the station...The desk officer says,"Cake Lady, What are you doing here?"..I say, Unfortunatly, you have my son....she leans back in her chair and says to another officer,"Do we have Cake Lady's son?" I replied, "Well, it doesn't say that on his driver's license."

    I really should write a book. I hope this clears things up...I am still on cloud 9

    What a lovely backyard photo, tt - love the ornamental grass.  We have a lot of it and enjoy it when it turns brown, too.

    Winter, thanks - we've pretty much decided not to go back to the specialist.  I can't believe I went there in the first place, but we trust our vet, and it didn't occur to me to try other places.  She's never steered us wrong before, and I'm sure the specialist is really great, but...

    Oh, that is so funny, Icer.  See, from your first post, we couldn't have possibly deduced that scenario.

    Yes, you'll be amazed how when you're in a store now, your eyes now automatically drift to baby things.  You really have to reign yourself in.  I have a bagful of "stuff" to give GD once baby arrives.

    Re: September 2011

    Yay, Icer!! What happy news (assuming the tip turns out to be reliable)!  Congratulations to you and Honey!  I'm with tt...  will have to reread your cryptogram. 

    I don't drink beer often, but did try the pumpkin beer at a cookout a couple of weekends ago and liked it.  My #2 (DH's bff - I joke that he is my second husband) loves it and insisted I try it. Apparently its even better at a bar with cinnamon and sugar on the rim - haven't tried that yet.

    ETA:  hahahaa, Icer!  You should write a book. So gf's mom spilled the beans?

    Nov, you have to try it that way if you liked it plain.  It's awesome.  John Harvard's brews a nice pumpkin ale and serves it with the cinnamon sugar on the rim.  YUMMY - it's a beer and dessert all in one.  Yup, it's all fancy schmancy now!

    I saw that two faced cat last night, too - WEIRD!!  I didn't hear the background story, though.  I wonder what caused that.

    Re: September 2011

    Nov, Boston Beer Works makes a good example of that blueberry beer.  Seemingly like magic, the blueberries slowly sink and rise, sink and rise, sink and rise, ...you can find yourself mesmerized by it.  I'm not a fan of the taste, though.  I like blueberries, but not blueberry flavored things, generally speaking, and beer is not an exception.

    icer, I do enjoy a nice martini once in awhile, but one is my limit, too.  The last one I had was a Maine potato vodka (can't remember brand) with gorgonzola stuffed olives, dirty.  It was sooooooo yummy.
