  1. Thanks Muzza, and, as it turned out, I got to hold him again yesterday! They live 134 miles from us, and they showed up as I was getting off work yesterday! My hubby knew they were coming, but I didn't! What a wonderful surprise! He's 12 days old now and so very precious! --Julie
  2. I got to hold my first grandson on the day he was born! Wed., October 18th. 8 lbs. 6 oz., 20" name is Ayden Michael. Precious....

    I have adored Snoopy forever! Loved Charles Schultz and his insights into the world. It's funny, cause I'm really a "cat" person, but Snoopy is just an incredible dog!
  4. Oh yeah! THAT'S why I spend so much time here! Thanks a bunch! --Julie
  5. Okay, so the Reporter/Democrat isn't exactly the New York Times, but I was kinda excited to find my pic in color on the front page of our local paper today! I'm the blonde in the pink shirt. Emmetsburg Paper --Julie
  6. Oh, and thanks everyone for sharing their accounts of WAB! Especially Lew's! After reading the others, it was refreshing to get the truth!
  7. Thanks for asking Tony! I've been sitting here in Iowa feeling really dumb and afraid to ask! (Oh, and I'm impressed that you can spell "Denise" too! Wow! --Julie
  8. Hey Mellie--I tried to get in the chatroom, but I was denied. I brought chex mix and diet vanilla pepsi. Not too exciting, but that's all I had! --Julie

    8.2 miles for me with 2 railroad crossings to deal with. But, 6 miles of it is by the lake so it's a beautiful country drive. The other 2 are in town--4,000 population, so only 1 traffic light to deal with!
  10. Oh my! So, 29 years ago, I was standing in a KOA Campground store holding a can of pork 'n beans! Upon hearing the news, I dropped the can and it rolled across the floor. Another lady in the store said, "What did he die from?" to the lady manning the store. She said, "His heart quit beating." My mom and I got the giggles, and that's when the can went rolling. Wow! That was just like yesterday!
  11. J.T. was at the Iowa State Fair on Friday Night. Had we known about it sooner, we'd have gone. Heard it was awesome!
  12. Hope you have a spectacular birthday, Eric! Just enjoy the day and all the blessings in your life! --Julie
  13. Gina, While you're in Internet Explorer, go up to the top of your screen and click on "tools". Then, go down to "internet options". When that window opens up, go to the tab on the top that says "advanced". This will bring up a big list of options that you can "check". Keep scrolling down the list--under media it has some options that allow this and that. Just read them and select the ones that make sense (maybe I'm weird, but a lot of them do make sense to me!) There are options for ActiveX also if you keep scrolling through the list. Remember too, you can always "google" your problem--type in "problems with ActiveX" for example and this may lead to some good solutions. My friends at work think I am a total genius with the computer, but I really just look around and pull down menues and read & study stuff in there. --Julie
  14. Hi Gina, I'm not a hugely smart computer-type-geek, so I may not be really helpful, but, I had a similar problem with Active X when I tried to listen/watch the new stuff Bernie put on. I realize you said you have a new computer, but do you have the newest version of Quicktime? I thought I did, but come to find out it was a little different than mine. I also had to check or uncheck (can't remember which) a little box in my internet options area--and seems like I did something else too--although it escapes me just now (I'm tired and have had a rough day!) Anyway, I'm not really sure which thing was the magic bullet, or maybe it was all of them, but I got it to work. I guess re-reading this, I haven't really been very helpful in a technical kind of way, but I am trying to give you hope! (I'm a very hopeful type person!) I'll dink around and see if I can figure out what box I checked and where it was! In the meantime, maybe one of our more computer-whiz types will provide you with the right answer! --Julie
  15. I guess I have the biggest problem with the fact that a married, supposedly "Christian" man with 7 children feels that he needs to go out late at night, without his wife and hang out with young ladies at a bar. People say and do really stupid things when they are under the influence. Was he "under the influence" when he left home that evening? My 2 cents, Julie Happily married, Christian lady

    Heat Wave

    It "cooled" off here the past 2 days, although it was in the 90's today. We got a hair over 6 inches of rain on Tuesday night and you can't even tell it! The cracks in the ground were so big, the water just ran in. It's been even drier at hotter at my folks'. They live north of Omaha. They have probably only had a total of an inch of rain ALL summer. It is just awful there. --Julie
  17. Was "Say You, Say Me" ("Gag you, Gag me") by Lional Ritchie on the list?? I just don't get that song and would put it right near the top of a "wussie" list! Sorry if I offended anyone. I do like other L.R. songs--just have a real gag-reflex when I hear that one! --Julie
  18. My new hubby introduced my cat to his daughter's after our wedding as, "your new little brother"--so I understand this purrfectly! I and the "little one" lived with my folks until I got married, so now when we go to visit we have to take the grandcat with us. Sometimes he insists on staying with them for a couple of weeks! Congratulations! --Julie (we're expecting our 2nd grandchild in October--a human one!)
  19. Well Paulie, my "pet peeve" of the day is that whenever I try to look at the media files here that Bernie is putting up today, a little box pops up that says, "click here to activate ActiveX control". Then, as soon as I click on it, a box pops up that says that Internet Explorer needs to close! AARRGGHHH!!!!!!!! Geez, I've tried updating my ActiveX, I've gone into my preferences and told it that ActiveX was fine with me. Sigh. Still no luck. Oh, and those folks who act like dorks whenever a camera is pointed at them. Well, they just can't help themselves. Somewhere along the path of the "food chain" their ancestors "lucked out" and were not consumed. Thus, the "stupid gene" was allowed to perpetuate! And, as the granddaughter of an engineer for the Chicago & Northwestern, that grafitti stuff is bothersome.......but not near so much as this ActiveX thing is to me currently! Lol! --Julie Thanks for the opportunity to vent. It's 100 degrees here and I'm feeling a tad bit cranky! Lol!

    Oh! So glad to hear this wonderful news! Take a deep breath and .....whew! Amen!! --Julie

    Thanks Bernie!!! It's AWESOME!!! And Chris, I'm still praying! --Julie
  22. I'm sorry to hear this Matt. Will keep you in prayer. --Julie We need a "hug" graemlin too!

    Chris, you guys have already been in my prayers as I had read your posts on "the other site" (as opposed to the "fragile" one... ) I echo all of the above. I know what a stressful situation this can be. It's hard to get anything else on your mind. Hey, maybe you can crank up some Raspberry tunes and some E.C. ones and sing them at the top of your lungs! Music is truly good for what ails you and is an excellent "de-stresser". Please keep us posted and take your wife out to dinner or try to do something fun this weekend. She will appreciate your support. You sound like a very caring and loving husband--I'm sure your support means everything to her. Will keep you in prayer! --Julie P.S.--Hey Bernie! We need a prayer "graemlin"!
  24. A couple of days before my subscription to XM expired in my car, I heard the Partridge Family singing on the 70's channel. I hadn't heard them on anything but a scratched up LP. Man, David has got a gorgeous voice. It's absolutely beautiful! Makes me want to download some of his tunes onto the iPod!
  25. Your brother is fortunate to have you for a sister. Glad he is "home". Every day will bring more healing. It will be a big adjustment, but hopefully he can remain positive. My cousin was in a similar accident on his motorcycle many years ago and his leg was so severely damaged they decided to amputate. Your brother just needs to focus on the positive--be thankful for what he has rather than to focus on what he has lost. He is fortunate he has his life. Will keep him and your family in prayer. --Julie
