I love to play with the computer. I have a Broderbund Print Shop program that lets you start with predesigned stuff or blanks. Generally I take a photo that I have taken - winter scene of some sort & then doctor it up.
The Print Shop programs even include 'sentiments' that you can personalize...so for special friends or family, you can print their name in the salutations.
I get 1/2 fold white card stock from Staples & voila...home-made cards.

I generally design only a couple cards each year...for me, that's the fun part of Christmas cards.

Cards! aarrgghh! I work at the post office, so I'll see my share of cards and then some in the next 3 weeks! Right now we are fighting a battle with all the catalogs being sent out. I'll send my cards out at the last minute, as usual. I pretty much know when they'll be delivered, lol.

Pam, how do you make the cards? Do you have a program or some other way of doing it? If I had the time, I'd love to do something like that.

I don't send lots of cards, but I do send them out. I make my own...that's half the fun. Am going to finish this weekend...have done most of the layouts...but thought I was out of ink for the printers...

Then, thought about it...knew I had bought ink not that long ago & went through my computer supply stuff...lots of ink...so can finish getting cards ready!

Will take them to the post office on Monday...

I'm SO BAD. I haven't sent Christmas cards out for a couple of years. We all just email the darn things now... Everyone I know has gotten computer literate, so the only cards I receive are from my doctor, insurance agent, furniture and car salesman.

As for being snarky, I am that. I have such a sarcastic sense of humor that most people don't pick up on it and get offended. So, I have to hide it at work, at least when "customers" are in the office. LOL

Actually, I have been thinking about it, and what I just said is not entirely true --

snarky is not something I DO, but rather it is something I AM.....

Was a beautiful day here, too. However, was chained to the house - couldn't go walking in the woods with the dog - as I was waiting for a delivery that eventually arrive.

Tomorrow is supposed to be better.

I am FRUSTRATED!!!! I am having an 'I hate computers' day!!! Actually, this is day 2...started yesterday afternoon.

I have some weird glitch "HTTP error 406, not acceptable" happening with one website. Wouldn't be so bad, except it is my bank...I discovered I have this weird, rare, error when I tried to pay a bill.

So I have spoken with my ISP, & the bank & an IT friend (who has never heard of a 406 error). I have read...oh, about 50 articles on 406 & am no further ahead. However, I am not worried (yah, right). I will figure this out...somehow...one step at a time. In the meantime, I may have to resort to margaritas!

Bitter...finding clothes to wear to a friend's funeral tomorrow - 54, lost a long battle to cancer. A beautiful lady...in all ways.

Sweet...could get into clothes that I haven't worn in years...& they fit well.

I will look classy at the funeral tomorrow...yup, bitter-sweet.

Hello everyone -- I had a really good day at work, and then came home and had a really good dinner -- steak and a baked potato, topped off with a small piece of dark chocolate for dessert, and I stayed under my calorie and sodium limit for the day. So I am in a really good mood right now.

Have I said "really good" often enough? Maybe I should say it some more....

It's really good to be here with my really good cyber friends....

Ok, that's enough....

The hubs and I got back from a short weekend camp trip. A good time was had as usual. We'll be going camping again next weekend too but to a different camp ground.

Right now just relaxing a bit and catching up on some Spark. I need to download some photos I've taken last weekend at the race and some this weekend.

Harumph Pam! I gave what was requested!

Beyond that - the ride sounds nice. After our initial budget busting of supplies for the next remodeling projects, we sat down for a late night movie that we enjoyed.

Okay, Sally...enough of the one word answers...

So - for the last couple days I have been wearing my biker face...& given the temps yesterday (my thermometer, when riding, registered a whole 50 F) I actually looked like the Michelin man...layers of clothes to stay warm while riding for the day.

But the sun shone & all was good. A hot bubble bath when I got home...& I thawed out.

Now, Sally...that is 'something'!

Today...is catch-up on vacuuming-the-dog-hair-up day

I pulled into the crowded parking lot at the local shopping center and rolled down the car windows to make sure my Labrador Retriever Pup had fresh air.

She was stretched full-out on the back seat and I wanted to impress upon her that she must remain there. I walked to the curb backward, pointing my finger at the car and saying emphatically, now you stay. Do you hear me?" "Stay! Stay!"

The driver of a nearby car, a pretty blond young lady, gave me a strange look and said,

"Why don't you just put it in park?"

Sounds like a sane thing to do...I know I retired at just the right time...the newest supervisors at my old office are creating havoc.

Even the union is now starting to get involved...in working with folks who aren't hard-core union supporters! Tells you just how bad the 'so-called' management team has become.

As I keep telling my former co-workers...document, document, document...it pays off in the long run!

Hi Pam -- I am old too, and yes, I have heard of that --

I have decided it would probably be best to not discuss this in detail publicly online, just in case -- so I deleted the rest of my comments -- and my photos from my Spark page, as this whole thing could potentially become explosive after the corporate office is informed. Better safe than sorry....

Hi folks - back to see who's where & doing what...

I have been at the cottage for a few days...so nice up there...watching the loons & the crane that stands on the dock surveying his territory

Karen - I know I'm old, but have you ever heard of the Peter Principle? It is a employment/management thing that asserts that most times [in an organization] people get promoted to their own level of incompetence! Too often true.

Someone may be an awesome sales person (or whatever), but in order to increase their pay scale they are forced into a position for which they are not suited - & which they often don't want...resulting in everyone being unhappy & resulting in managers who are terrible at their jobs!

Anyway...I always though the Peter Principle made a lot of sense to me...

I think that is a good idea Karen. But when you do that remember keep emotion out of it and only state the facts. It's hard to do but it's very important. You can only state that which you know for sure and not what you think she may be feeling or thinking. So keep to the facts.

This woman is not really a manager, she's a supervisor (below the 2 store managers). I had the day off today so I had a chance to think it over, and I am going to report her to the assistant manager tomorrow.

Oh Karen, that is unacceptable. A good manger would have taken you to an office and had a talk with you. No hollering or anything. Chances are you probably didnt do anything that bad anyway, which is doubly frustrating.

Hmmm. *She says while looking around.* No one's been here in awhile.

Well, this was supposed to be the chat thread and then 'mom' went and diddled with a good thing and things just got messed up. People moved to a thread that was deleted until it got deleted too. People have been a little lost on where to chat. This is my one attempt at getting the beach ball back in this sandbox.

Yeah, Joy, I guess I can't use those measures to keep those glasses on her face!!

I have tried 2 kinds of straps for her. She hates them, constantly takes those off too!! What lasted the longest was a cute tiedie necklace type that had mini sunglasses for the strap adjuster. It was really cute. I let her take them off one day, now they are lost too. I thought I had them still. Dratttt! So can't I use more 'creative' ways to keep her from loosing them?
Pline: you made me laugh...you liked to 'loose' your glasses! It was especially creative to think of using a hammer! Hah! I think my daughter has a love/hate relationship with her glasses!! She stomped on them once! She hates that they get wet and she can't see, when she cries. Hey I have a job for you..follow my girl around where ever she goes, and keep track of the glasses, kay? I pay you one dollar a day, kay?

Ha ha, Aussie. My parents used to get calls from the teacher all the time because I "forgot" my glasses. Once she caught me trying to bury them in the backyard. And I was very disappointed when she caught me sneaking the hammer. Unfortunately, I could see better without them!

Oh yeah, I got fired today. Well, to use her terms - restructured. Yeah, right out of a job!

Well Aussie, since the name of this thread is "How the hell are ya today???" I think it would be okay to talk about you. I hope things work out with the programs you're looking into. As to keeping them on her head, I think they probably frown on using a staple gun. Have you tried one of those straps that keep glasses on the head or if nothing else, around the neck? That's my 2 cents....

So, since we are talking about ourselves right now....I'm totally frustrated with my daughter, who's 5 years old, and keeps loosing her glasses. I have spent hours looking under, in, between, and over, everything!!! I practically combed through the back lawn. I do not have money to just go buy her new ones, and Since 2009, we have no insurance!! Grrr. The school is offering to hook us up with someone that can help pay for the glasses but it will take weeks and so they wanted me to try to get her in Temparary Medi-cal, but the clinic says she can't have it because she's not due for a physical yet, and our regular medical that we keep applying for...we don't know if it has gone through yet. Pant..pant....ok, so I have to check the status of our medical by making a phone call...no big deal..and then if we don't have the medi-cal, I will start the process with the help from the school...it will take a while and meanwhile my poor girl can't see and gets frustrated with everything. Got any ideas on how I can get her to keep her glasses on? Krazy glue? velcro?
On the positive side, my jeans are not so tight today! Woopee. see, it's all about me.

Today is my sister's birthday and she decided she wanted one of her favorite meals and I get to do the cooking. That should be fun (NOT!) -- cooking at someone else's house where you don't know where everything is and they're her recipes that I'm not familiar with AND my sis can be ultra picky. *Sigh*. Couldn't I have just bought her a present?

In a little bit I'm going for a swim in the endless pool. It's one of the perks of visiting down here.

So. That's how the hell I am.

I agree...nice new pic Ed.

I love target practice (yup, I'm a Canadian who likes guns!) Used to compete in a trap league...was great fun! Killing all those clay pigeons!

When I had my doberman, he loved going to the gun club...all those nice people who would feed him toasted bacon sandwiches for breakfast! All he had to do was look at them...
