Stuart is very , very cute!


Carol and Cy - He thinks so too.


very cute! the wk before last, my kittie booper kept hopping up onto the desk & sitting infront of the computer screen! i think she was trying to tell me something! click on or copy & paste the following link into your browser to see!


Jo - Booper is gorgeous! Such style and dignity. Zoftig too.


alexanevents - Of course!! We love fun gift bags. Where are you from? Since we are in Colorado we try to find all Colorado prutcods so guests get a little feel for the city or state. A salty item (chips, granola bars), something sweet (chocolate bars, cookies), fruit, water bottles (just regular or a personalized refillable one) and a personalized booklet or letter to guests giving them tips on what there is to do in the area. Hope that helps! There is no rhyme or reason if you have some favorite snacks. Good luck!June 28, 2011 3:05 pm


Evan:You have to set up your lifting in celycs. Monthly is good. Start with higher reps and lighter weight, then decrease the reps and increase the weight each week. At the end of the month, test yourself to see if you are making gains. Use those results to set up your next month's lifting schedule.Brian


Brenda, you have identified an exllneect set of sentences and a challenging memoir issue. I have been writing about my parents in the beginning, so I haven't yet faced the issue of how to introduce myself. But no matter how hard you try to tell the story authentically, it does constantly change as we change. Dorothy Canfield, an early 20th century writer, wrote a story called Sex Education that illustrated how same story changed in the mind of the storyteller over her lifetime. Highly recommended!
