I hope you all arrived safe and sound! Not too painful was it? I am embarking on a newly named blog...beaswax. You know the old saying...Mind your own Beeswax?
I thought it reflected what I do most often...jot down a few words, upload a few pics, then let everyone have a go at them. I do, however wish for respect.
Read what I write, enjoy the funnies, the photos and so on, but "Mind your own beaswax "and please don't use what I write for any maligned, malicious or misguided intent. Thank-you.
I do what I do, mostly for pleasure and to keep our family up to date to some degree through photos and news without writing the same blab to 20 different people. I don't have time for that anymore. I hardly have time to blog!
Here is the catch...I like to blog, and I like to do it without worry that someone will be offended or p*ssed off because of what I said or did.
On that happy note, if you are still with me, then set Beaswax to be your new "My Favorite Link" to tune in to moi! Welcome everyone, and please come back if you dare!
* How to do it: while you are at my new website, click on Favorites, or the double Yellow and green Plus Marks if you are running Internet Explorer 7,and add me in your Links . I will then show up on your toolbar or at the end of it in a drop down box if you have a lot of links.
If you weren't aware, Internet Explorer has been upgraded to Internet Explorer 7 . Apparently it is more secure ( a good thing) . Joyce put me onto it, and voila, I am using it and so is she. It wants to give you a Yahoo toolbar and search engine, but once you have the new Internet explorer downloaded, you can turn that Yahoo toolbar off. Just go to "View" and select which toolbars you want to view.
I have "Menu, Links and Google" ticked off, if that is any help. The other security feature is one that prevents other websites from "Phishing"...that is, stealing such info as your credit card numbers by setting up fake sites to request them. You will be alerted to the danger.
I guess the other way to add me, is to drag the toolbar with my blogsite address, to your desktop to create a shortcut right on your desktop. I think you have to hold down the control button while dragging, then release it on the desktop. I'll check that out. ( Yep, it works fine)
So that is about it for tonight.
Happy cruising and let me know what you think. You can still leave a comment...you just have to rewrite the script you see, so that they know you aren't a computer making rude comments.
Good Luck...Love ya and Leave ya!

Silky after her bath and clipping...Looking a little shy from the camera..
Thank goodness I finished my outdoor chores moments before this big Whitey blew in from Nelson. The snowy ice pellets were blowing right up into the balcony.Brrr!
I quickly slammed the basement door and retreated to the cozy house to assemble and sort which Xmas presents I have bought. In fact, it looks like the main ones are accounted for...just a matter of wrapping them up and getting a big box ready to send to my little family as I now call them!
Emil put the snowblower on today and I bathed and clipped poor Silky. She looks like a wisp of her former self, without the extra ten pounds of fur. Good time to do it eh? The day before the big cold front is supposed to move in. It will drop to minus 20* so the weatherman says.
We decided to grab a bite over at Dockers tonight. The roads were wet and at times rain poured down. Strange weather. The parking lot was a sheet of ice and the snow crunchy, so I think the rain was a freak of nature. Anyhow, it was great to sit down and relax for a bit and have someone else do the cooking.
