  1. Fern Salute--know they are suffering with so little water.

    Nicky--Six paintings sold--Fabulous. You strut proud as a peacock, girl.

    Maria, It's getting those word bursts to come closer together that is the trick. Or I guess that's the treat this time of year.

    Farf, the supervisor got his hackles up and defensive. Has to defend himself, rather than see this as a finding a solution situation. Wears ya out. Hope you are able to fit in some fun with all the work.

    Using Query Tracker to investigate agents. Quick way to see interviews and websites and some comments. Query letter still in boulder stage. Need to hone it to gemstone quality.
    Thanks for all the support.

    Terrific Tuesday to All.

  2. Hello (and goodbye), ferns… you'll be back next year better than ever, right?

    Hey Lisa, hope the kiddos behave today. It's gotta be rough getting it from both ends. Happy writing vibes to you and all.

    Work is in a lull for the moment. I'm maintaining five different versions of firmware documentation and all of them are out getting reviewed. I'll check in when I can!

  3. Morning, gang!!

    Weather breaking this afternoon, thank goodness. Expected to be in the 60s for tomorrow's high. whew!

    Lisa, I'm terribly hopeful that the bursts will keep arriving quickly!! Best of luck on the querying.

    Another day, more documentation. My life in a nutshell. ::g::

  4. I've got confidence in you, Lisa. Just like the ferns, you'll stand tall all through the query process.

    Sounds like a confusing life, Farf. Are you on version 5.034A Patch 2 of your life?

    We're cooling off too, Maria. I'm ready for it to feel more like October.

  5. The fern is mightier than than the twig.

    Farf, yeah, we don't discuss politics much at work. Who ever thought talking about the weather would ever become political.

    But I gotta say, food is becoming increasingly political.

    A wild woman once said on the radio that everything we women do is political. Each and every choice we make comes down to a political move. The food we put into our babies bellies, what we do or don't put on our face. How we treat our bodies. Even what we use to clean our homes with is political.... being environmentally aware and caring about polution is political. Oh wait... that woman was me. LOL

    I was asked about what I thought when I heard that women for the most part were not voting, who said "I don't do politics" or were apathetic. No. We make choices every day, and those choices reflect our politics - or if you need another word, it reflects our awareness.

    Why on this earth would I want someone I don't or won't learn about and not vote for make choices for me, my children, my earth? To me, that type of thinking, non-thinking, is a willful slavery. However these same women who say they don't do politics usually want the apple pie, parades and jump up and down to the National Anthem at sports venues.

    As I've said before, marching and protesting and speaking with your congresscritters is the easy part. It's the daily choices that are the hardest. What stores I will shop at, what bread I buy. Lightbulbs... GE - major war contractor. Don't do fast food and it's not just because their food is horrible - that's just the tip of the bigmac. Checking labels to make sure my stuff isn't made my an 8 year old in China. We don't buy beer from the three big beer whores. Local brew. What's more American than that?

    My husband is anti-war but he does things differently than the rest of us. He gave up his car and he feels the war we can fight and win is the war against hunger. So he does Meals on Two Wheels. That brings him solace and peace of mind.

    It all boils down to our family motto of "What did you do once you knew?" Once you know a certain company is crapping on it's employees and doing horrible things in other lands, do you still buy it because "it's on sale"? That in and of itself is a political choice. My soul isn't for sale.

    It's funny though how the term "she's political" or "he's political" is now considered a bad thing. But if you look at what is being targeted: education, science, environment, endangered animals... then I guess it's a good thing. :)

    And Farf, you won't believe what I hear through the line at work from customers. As Andi said, it's getting "tetchy" out here. But then again I live in "little Beirut" :)

    Cold outside but bright sun is out. I love the Fall.
