When I went up to do my daily maintenance on the hot tubs at the lodges a few days ago I looked toward the hillside and saw this wonderful site. It was not created by my (or anybody else's) hand, but just the way these…Continue
Pam in New York, this is especially for you; could not resist. Compares to your "this deep" in Florida. Two weeks ago we got 16 inches which was well on it's way to being gone; then we got dumped on again. Our high temps now are lower than our average low temps; average is 50 for high and 30 for low.

Recently ordered a "Tavern Blues Quilt Kit" online along with several of their fabrics and I'm having some problems. Read for yourself and be warned before buying from these people. I had no idea and did not see this one coming. Any advice is welcome. I've never disputed a purchase on my credit card before but this may be the first. The call and email were made early today and still no…Continue
