        that they arent checking to see how many times they sent it? I get real mail scams all the time. They want me to call some number, then they say I won something but I have to agree to buy magazines...and I have to give them my bank info over the phone,they cant send me anything? yeah, ok....

            We've actually in the middle of a heat wave up by me.  I think it's like 15 right now.  Last week we were doing good to get up to 2 though.

              Oh my gosh! Where are all of you? I thought I was cold and its 23.  (Wait, are we talking the same measuring system here... I'm Farenheit.) I guess I shouldn't complain! lol.  We are, however, supposed to get around 12 inches of snow tomorrow... ugh.  Time to check the tires.

    When did you first feel the black and white bull's eye painted on your back (sorry - on your email addy)?

    Lucky emi! All I get are young female orphans in refugee camps who want a friend - and money - to get them  and their FAMILIES (??? - what does the word orphan mean to you???) out of Nigeria, or Ethiopia.
