DYK I hate Winter?

e to bathe him twice a week in prescription shampoo?

DYK that I had a big response typed and I lost it?


DYK that I did highlight and copy it?

DYK that when I went to paste it, that there was nothing there, just like I have had happen before?

DYK that really irritates me; the fact that the board is eating so many posts and that I know I copied it but when I right-click to get it back the paste option is grayed out?

DYK that I think it's awesome that Mel has lost so much weight?

DYK that I have slowly been starting to run again?

DYK that I have already been twice in the past week and plan to go today?

DYK that I didn't know that it frosted so early in Dallas?

DYK that the frost here yesterday was terrible?

DYK that I hate to scrape windshields?

DYK that I have a very snotty co-worker that is always implying that he is filthy rich and he made many snide remarks yesterday about how he would never have to scrape because he would never live without a garage?

DYK that even if I had a garage, which I don't, I drive the only work car for my district so it would still be on the street?

DYK that I am beyond delighted that people are drifting back to the boards and they are starting to work again?

DYK that I am really looking forward to the holidays?

DYK DS is going deer hunting with his dad this weekend and DD asked if we could cook a lot over the weekend?

DYK she has softball on Saturday, then I have a 50th birthday party to go to, then we have Twilight tickets, so I have no clue when we can cook?

DYK that I only have to work 5 more days until Thanksgiving?

DYK I can use the break?

DYK I have no idea why my post is it two different font sizes when it's all one size on the Word document I typed?

DYK I am writing this response in the REGULAR response box!

DYK I will hold my breath until it posts

DYK I am very proud of Mel for losing over 50 pounds!

DYK I love reading everyone's DYKs

DYK I hope more of our regulars can join us again soon

DYK I also am NOT a fan of winter

DYK it is only going up to around 47 degrees today

DYK that does not make me happy

DYK it is pitch black by 5:00 pm here now

DYK I hate driving home in the dark

DYK I think Gaye's new addition to her family sounds like a "Hoot"

DYK I can just picture the little critter climbing the shelves in her cabinet - too funny!

DYK it sounds to me like Tracy is back into her crazy busy schedule again

DYK I can't get it into my head Thanksgiving is a week from tomorrow

DYK I better because I am hosting dinner

DYK I can't even believe it's almost Thanksgiving

DYK I swear NYE was last week! 

DYK Thanksgiving is at my sister's house

DYK I'm "in charge" of apple pie and cookies

DYK Nat and I are baking the cookies this weekend and hoping they last until Thanksgiving!

DYK we will freeze them in hopes that DH doesn't eat all of them!

DYK we plan on making chocolate chip, monster cookies, and pb kiss cookies

DYK I want to try the "pie in a jar"


but really have no reason to make it.

DYK I could give them to the ladies in the family for Christmas gifts

DYK I like seeing everyone slowly make their way back.

DYK I missed coming here!

DYK I sent Brooklyn to school today

DYK my fingers are crossed that the school doesn't call

DYK she was fever free this morning, but I hope it doesn't spike back up


DYK I just signed up for my free Pillsbury calendar

DYK Natalie LOVES hanging the food calendars in her room

DYK there are several recipes on there she would love to try

DYK the cold doesn't bother me (yet)

DYK I love the peacefulness of the first snow fall.  When everything is quiet and the moon's light shines off the of the newly fallen snow. The crisp air fills your lungs and it ALMOST hurts to breathe.  Ahhh....

DYK I absolutely love that

DYK I have a smile on my face just thinking about it

DYK come February I will be sick of it and ready for Spring

DYK I should get back to work

DYK I don't want to!

DYK that sometimes, even when the right-click paste command is grayed out, you can still use Control-v to paste? Not always, but I have noticed that on the board in the past - give it a try, if you haven't already, Tracy.

DYK that I bless my high school computer class everyday?

DYK that it was the first computer class offered in my high school, and was called Microcomputer Applications?

DYK that we had Apple II machines (before Mac, so no mouse)?

DYK that I learned to navigate everything using the Apple-_ hot keys, and many of them work in Microsoft programs still?

DYK it saves me a lot of time, and makes me look like a computer genius when I am helping fellow staffers with their computer problems?

DYK it frosted a couple times last week, but has generally been warmer around here this fall?

DYK that I am also glad to see people trickling back!

DYK I use the short cuts so much I don't even think about it.

DYK they are super helpful and quick.

DYK the following are the some of the most common.

Ctrl + X = cut selected items

Ctrl + C = copy selected items

Ctrl + V = paste selected items

Ctrl + Z = undo

Ctrl + P = print current page

 Returning to the scene of the crime.

Jabaar revisiting the scene of the crime this morning.

The pugs got into the pantry closet while I was at choir practice last night and tore into a bag of brown sugar. They  both vomited all over the house. I don't see sugar on the list of foods toxic to dogs. As soon as I cleanrf up a pool of vomit, someone made another. My vacuum is in the shop, but I do have a small carpet cleaning machine. Anya vomited on her new bed. I washed it and the washer overflowed. I put them both in the bathroom with a beach towel to lie on.  There was no vomiting after midnight, and we are back to normal today.

A trip to the hardware store for baby latches for the cabinets.

Are we sure Jabaar is nine years old?
