      I'm on twitter and linkedin . Not into facebook--had a bit of a issue with a girlfriend. :( plus the constant ads (but that was tolerable). LMK :) I do have a reserve one but I don't use that save for "likes"/bookmarks. Not much online though. Best to you and your fam.

      I disabled my original FB page but I'll add you on my reserve one... :) Not much online save for experimenting with my materials (mainly sports, events, and art photos)... Keep in touch--hope you and your husband are well... :)

      Hey I'm not on FB--more on the photo sites (mostly soccer and the like). Been in flux in recent months. Hope you're well.

      Hope all's well... things are in flux right now but first time the Quakes are in the playoffs since their return... the women's team (Gold Pride) was epic--a ton of adventures with the younger folk. :D So moving out west eh? OK cheers!

      Still trying to clean out my parents' house! They lived here FIFTY years! I feel like I'm in a time capsule! Thank heavens for the World Cup!

      Well--it's gotta get better sooner than later :D... for every bit of bad luck there's got to be something good--perseverance there eh? Can't get into baseball for some reason there, though good to have a soccer (and hockey) team competing :o :D Hang tough there/keep the faith!

      at least the soccer team is back here now--makes everyone forget about 2006/2007 though while for the first time there's more discord over the direction of the team. Bad luck sucks--is there a way to repeal Murphy's Law LOL... just hanging in there :o

      Good to hear from YOU! The day after I posted the message below, my uncle died. Now I have no blood relatives on my mother's side except my brother and a first cousin, once removed. Very weird feeling!! I honestly don't know if we have a soccer team right now or not!

      Hey great hearing from you. Was wondering what's been happening. Sorry to hear though about your mom. :( Sounds like things are busy at your end--tough decisions happening eh?--What to keep and what to take back. It's been a whirlwind here too but at least things are stabilizing. I will admit that sport, art, and mass keeps me sane--not in any order hehe. Anything up?

      It's been too long, Hawkeye. And a very odd year. I think I told you long ago that I moved in with my mother six years ago, after a series of heart surgeries (and Coreg) left her legally blind. Thank heavens, I kept my house! Anyhow, she passed away suddenly in October 2009. I always knew that I'd be bad off when it happened, but had no idea HOW bad off! I'm still at her house - where I've lived all but 10 years of my life - trying to get it ready to sell. Once I move back to my house, I won't be able to go back. My word, my parents moved there in 1960! That's 50 years of "stuff" to toss, sell, or take to my house. Oy. So how are YOU doing?

      Can't say much about the Pirates though... Steelers and Penguins, well, they're on top of the world! :cool:

      Common in many baseball stadiums--the food and beverages are overpriced. I'll go to the pub though.

      I was thinking the Grand Ole Opry--didn't know they had the Dukes of Hazzard museum (the old TV show--not the movie)... I was thinking Graceland but that's Memphis... :p

      And yes on the Steelers--here the fans would be called "gamers"...

      Ah, a dog's life.. woof! LOL!

      We were only there for 2 days, so we were in Opryland. Saw Willie Nelson Museum (ugly as original sin but wonderful music!), Dukes of Hazard Museum, the Resort, the PetSmart (Buffy needed pill pockets) & such.

      I'll be the first to say that the Pirates suck. I'm the person to take to a baseball game to go get everyone's beer, hot dogs, nachos, etc, etc. Not a fan! But PNC Park does have amazing concessions! They have a Benkowitz Fish Market stand - the boys were surprised that the fish & chips were $5.50 until they saw the HUGE amount they got!

      I am a Steelers fan, through & through. We put a Terrible Towel on my daddy's grave again. He had his first heart attack during a Steelers game & wouldn't go to the hospital until half-time. He calmed down once he saw that the Steelers won!

      schweet! Get a chance to see the sights?

      Well, party in Pittsburgh--time to paint everyone gold and black! :p

      Steelers look good to repeat and claim themselves as the greatest ever (with apologies to the Packers, Cowboys, and 49ers...) :cool:

      Lots of baseball though--can't say much about the Pirates or the nineball Giants...

      Truthfully, Hawkeye, we haven't stopped!!

      Tennessee was interesting - the best word I can use to describe Nashville is "honky tonk". I got a chance to visit with my English friend & she loved Buffy!

      WOW! Time to celebrate!

      Holidays been busy. Ready for Number Six? ;) (even if it will be at the expense of the 49ers--who have five trophies)...

      -----
      Enjoy Tennessee eh. Just going to see the sights? OK Steelers may be the most decorated team ever. :cool:

      *MWAH* Hawkeye! With this nasty weather, it's been... special. I kinda crawled into a hole over Christmas - too much to do!! I'm going to meet a (female) limey friend next month in Tennessee, though. Could be interesting! What's up with you?

      Happy New Year! :) :) Hope all's well...

      FAN-tastic! We did a lot of goofy things, a lot of sobering things (the Holocaust Museum), and even caught up with Marcel at the DC United game! :) Once I get the logo online, I'll post it - it was wonderful! AND, I found my drink of choice: the Pecos Peach!!
