1. Favorite face moisturizer? (My clinique is running out and wondered if there is something better or same quality without breaking my face out)

2. Outside--which do you prefer or have....table with umbrella or table under a tent/gabezo?

3. When getting a mani/pedi, do you always get both at the same time?

Have you tried L'Oreal?   It's not completely cheap, but a think it's a step below department store prices with the same quality.  So many kinds too. 

No, haven't tried anything yet. Still have some of my clinique left but didn't know if I should take a ride to the mall for it or see if I can find something else.

Like lotion?  I don't have a preference, I use whatever.  I do use a face only sunscreen, neutrogena but that's because I have found it doesn't sting my eyes.

2. Outside--which do you prefer or have....table with umbrella or table under a tent/gabezo?

We have both.  On the upper patio, table with umbrella and table without umbrella, Down on the pool deck, the table and chairs are under a arbor..

3. When getting a mani/pedi, do you always get both at the same time?

No, not always.

I don't understand the appeal of sitting at a table outside. Sitting in the grass or under a tree or something is part of the fun. If you're going to sit at a table, why not just stay inside?

I hope Savcal is alright today.  Please post any news of her.  I'll be thinking of her and her family today.

We're fine, thanks for asking.  It's about 70 miles south of us.   it's complete and utter devastation.  Death toll is at 91 now.   Good news is that 101 were rescued overnight.     So far, no one I know personally has been affected, but that may change as more news comes out.

I've had large parties at my home on regular basis, especially outside parties and there hasn't always been a table and chair for every guest.  My guests tend to mingle and move about instead of sitting in one place the entire party.

<<It's not always a matter of cost. i've considered getting a fire pit, but I worry too much that the rising heat from it could damage my massive maple trees, and getting one would require i put in a patio out back (which will cost way more than $100.  The side patio has a cover, so it's unsuited for a fire pit.  Eventually, I'd like a sunroom off the master bedroom and i intend to have a wood burning stove out there.  And I have such a pretty fireplace inside, it's enough.>>

We don't have a fire pit, we have one of those clay pot like things with a chimmney.

Well, at least in my case, there's no room for 10 people to eat in my house--there is in my yard :D

I was watching the news this morning and it is just horrible. I can't even watch anymore without crying. They showed a reporter that actually broke down. It was nice to see someone who has real feelings and not the regular reporters, who, IMO ask very rude questions and don't seem very humanly.
