Is it our hearts or our spirits that suffer the most!

Hearts are broken every day, unfortunately but "such is life".  With resourceful use of our time, hearts mend and pieces of it will always be reserved for those we lost and loved.  I fear for my…Continue

Is love essential to happiness, something two people can grow into (or out of)? Does "friends first" work, or when two people who are good friends get intimate, does it always spoil the friendship? …Continue

Hi Pat,

I don't think you are missing messages; rather, I think no one is posting lately!

I hope that you are doing well. The sun is finally arriving in the Toronto area and the temperature is finally going up. I even think I may be able to remove my winter tires soon! Ooh! I was on a week vacation with 4 of my cousins. Our first "cousin vacay" so it was nice to have a full week together in the Dominican Republic. Now I am working my Care Ministry and dog-sitting. I can't complain! Hugs to everyone out there.

I'm still here and still wondering why I'm not receiving any messages

I checked all of settings for Yahoo and I should be getting them..  In the meantime, I'm just going to have to muddle through and just keep reading the posts.  I hope that I and get tis resolved because I really miss you guy.

Everyone is safe and sound. My niece in West Virginia had quite a bit of snow and you're right: this is not the norm for them!

This area is supposed to go in the plus this week for a brief respite but I highly doubt it will rain. Enjoy yours, Rocket!

Unfortunately the east coast of the USA doesn't get enough bad weather like this to have on hand the type of machinery to deal with it, so in many places they just hunker down and wait for it to melt.

Hope everyone there, and your families & friends will be safe.

+8C here the other day and rained all day yesterday.  I think that Spring has arrived here..... at least I have my fingers crossed that it has!!  LOLOLOL

Greater Toronto Area fine. My family in West Virginia and Connecticut are very impacted. Watching CNN to see how they are coping.

Well wonderring if any of you are affected by the storm going on out East???

Great Cynthia: that Voltaren did it's magic for you too! I am buying frozen veggies too. Potatoes, carrots and turnips and lettuce (on sale) are all that I am buying fresh. And they are perfect and fresh each time. About your boots: were they at least a matching pair? haha

Comment by Cynthia on January 18, 2016 at 9:04pm

I go on line and watch all avertisments/ On television they stated that it is best to buy frozen product cauiflower etc tha fresh as they both haave the same nutrition and you will ot waste any if on your own. So I did just that this week andd had a large packet of cauli and brockoli for 2.99.

I bought Voltaren Linda and it was great, back is back to normal.

Went to church yesterday with my boots on the wrong foot...high hells the whole lot.........honestly I am loosing it lately.

Last week they wanted $4.59 for two spears of broccoli, I kept on walking.

Take care of that back, Cynthia.  

No more Superman jobs for you girl !!

Comment by Linda Blaschek on January 15, 2016 at 5:26pm

Ouch Cynthia. Voltaren is good for pulled muscles.

Let's just say we are really going to have to keep our eyes open for good deals anywhere. Loss leaders or whatever they are. With the dollar plunging our fruit/veggies etc are going to be ridiculous. I was at Metro today and they wanted 4.99 for a small cauliflower and 2.49 for two spears of broccoli. Yikes! Frozen veggies are cheaper. Take care of your back!
