Patti most of my team photos disappeared too, but apparently that has happened only to a few of us. Not sure what is going on. I put a new photo in at the team that I am leading (Love to Travel) but apparently no one else lost the team photo.

I spent about three hours copying and pasting my blogs that I wanted to keep to Google drive. Think I might reorder them, clean them up and then print them.

I am really down about Spark today. Still trying to maneuver through all the changes with ease, but blogs like @ALIHIKES being lost is not pleasing at all to me. We need someone to start a Spark book of blogs. A web site or something. There is so much good hiking info Alison. Worth sharing for sure. emoticon

Yes, too many people on the FB pages. Can't narrow down by interest to find friends we have been communicating with for over a decade.

Gould, I emailed you. Thank you for sharing.

Right now, the challenge team leaders for the 5% teams are exploring sites suitable for continuation.
Have any of you tried My Fitness Pal? My handle is the same- gouldsgranite. Seems it may be most like our SP.

Spark has been such a great experience for me. I'm hopeful that the development of Spark America and Spark 360 will bring a platform we can be happy with.

Here is my email - dadsranch2005@yahoo.com

Please reach out and let's connect so we can navigate best through this change.

I have joined 2 of the Spark Facebook pages but they are very overwhelming. I have been a member of the Firecrackers on the 5% challenge team for years and we have started a Firecracker team on Lose it! which is another free site but does not have all the bells and whistles of Sparkpeople. I signed up for Spark360 and can only hope it gets better over time.

Had to get into the river Sunday to place our river pump so we can start watering the yard ..... oh my the water was still very cold. Going to wait until next month before I try actually swimming.

Too bad about the public pool rules. Seems odd not to be able to change clothes?

We have been already able to enjoy the pool here in the yard. Pandemic plan perfection. Our family is all vaccinated and it is so nice to see the grandkids having fun in the water. We are hosting a graduation party for James in June. More family then. Bring on the Summer heat!

Most of the lakes and rivers here in Bend are pretty glacial. The community pool is limited to only two people per lane, sign up in advance, and the changing rooms aren't open so you're driving home in a wet suit. I love lake swimming and may try driving to one of the shallower lakes when the weather gets hot.

The waters are cold over there. Just talking the other day about swimming in the Little North Fork of the Santiam river. August and the water still felt like melted snow. I handled it as a young adult, can't take it that cold anymore!

That's great. No pool here, so its going to be awhile before the swimming hole is warm enough to dive in. The North Umpqua is still quite cold right now. So for now I'll have to stick to walking and bike riding.

I'm familiar with the Beaver Horseradish sauce (yummmm!). I've seen the mustard but haven't tried it. Will have to look for the Beaver Tartar since I'm adding more fish to my diet.

Alison - The tulips and Silver Falls Park. Heart strings! Most beautiful sights. emoticon

Random - Do any of you use the Beaver brand condiment products? My Aunt Lois taught me to always use the horseradish sauce (yummy), but I have recently discovered two more. Beaver Tarter Sauce and their Sweet Hot Mustard. I was making all of our own condiments for years, and during our lay over at home for the past year, glad to find these. Cheered us up.

Yahoo! Look at us vaccinated! DD grabbed Dave and I up on Friday late afternoon. The Umatilla High School was set up to vaccinate all comers over 18. We were in and out and got er done! Johnson & Johnson here. Dave had a two day reaction, he's better now. I guess that is good - must mean it is working!

Good news on the vaccine for us. Veterans, spouses, family and caregivers have been approved for vaccines. Our turn is almost here! We are holding hope the J & J shot will be what we get.

If the strong winds here would subside, it would be doable outdoors. Dave has us clearing our yard for a pool and deck. BRRR!

It is feeling very springlike here in Central Oregon. Vaccines are in short supply, but gradually more people are getting them. I am glad the COVID spread seems to be slowing.

Happy holidays! Have any of you gone out to try and see the Christmas star? Actually it is the conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter. It is visible to the naked eye about an hour after sunset, brightest star (actually planets), not flickering, just above the horizon. I went out but couldn't see it, too many trees so I can't SEE the horizon. When it gets brighter (12/21 will be the brightest) I will drive up to the top of butte so I get a once in a lifetime opportunity to see this rare phenomenon.

With a much slower pace, we are enjoying the holiday season in eastern Oregon.
Christmas lights are so pretty against the dark nights.
We like our pellet stove so much, puts out great heat, we are getting one more. Dave's busy building a third apt now, last one, we still have a nice garage and craft room. The last stove will warm us totally up.
Hows your season shaping up?

Dave and I smoked our turkey breast yesterday. We had our Thanksgiving meal a day early. I looked at Dave during our meal, and realized it was the calmest, happiest holiday meal I'd ever enjoyed. No worries made the day wonderful. I secretly suggested a day early so I can pack some leftovers and go fishing. Dave had changed it up so we could have holiday in our nice, new, warm apt. Safe to go fishing, we'll most likely be the one of the few on the bank! emoticon

Hopefully, rain will help put out the fires and we can all have better air condition.

I love the fall weather. Cool nights and mornings, and warm afternoons. I'm so sorry you got smoke again at the coast! I am dreading it returning here (Central Oregon)

The air quality warning has been extended to Thursday here. But it is better, unhealthy or Extremely Unhealthy, not hazardous. I'm still staying indoors. Praying for everyone who is coping with these fires!

Very bad air quality in Umatilla. I've been checking the traffic cam at Plymouth Wa port of entry just down from our house. The cam is set up to see the bridge crossing into Washington. Couldn't even see the bridge on the 9:30am image. Thankful to be at our Son's.

Praying and doing the rain dance.

Some rain forecast for Western Washington on Monday.

Our air in Bend has been in the hazardous zone all day. Could not see the sun all day, and visibilty was just a quarter mile. It's going to be hazardous probably until Monday.

I have friends who were evacuated and don't know if their home made it (small cabin just outside Blue River). My Portland friends say the air is horrible there too.

Stay safe, everyone! I packed an emergency bag to I can evacuate if I need to. My friends had only 5 minutes in which to get out.

Good plan Alison. I read where central Oregon will be very smoky this week as the wind shifts. Of course, one day at a time. We decided to stay in Kalama and help our son. We are working inside which is good. I looked at the traffic cam by our house in Umatilla, we are staying put here for a while.

Stay safe, no heavy exercise outdoors if you can avoid it.

I hope all of you are safe. The fires this week are so hard for me to even fathom. I have family, friends, employees and business associates who have been evacuated. The smoke in Portland is bad now too.

Smoky here in Bend also. Janey I hope your home and city is safe. I have friends who were evacuated from their home outside Blue River. Very scary. My sister and brother are in California which is also an inferno.

Cathy did you make it to Klamath Falls before the big fire? My friends were trailer camped at Collier State park and had to evacuate immediately. Highway 97 was closed; don't know if reopened.

Stay safe everyone! I'm packing an emergency evacuation bag ... just in case.

Smoke and ash found us in Kalama. Our DD and family were evacuated at home. Major fire in our hometown. We traveled on to the coast now. Smoky here with an east wind if you can fathom. Prayers for all in the path, east and west, north and south. Stay safe! emoticon

Feeling blessed to be over here in Kalama away from smoke. Praying for rain to aid in fire fighting and to clear the air.

Cathy, safe travels to Las Vegas. That is a big move. Have fun!
