Re: Weeders Monthly Chat for May 2012

hmmm down in Texas it is cloudy but no rain and temps are hitting 89-90 most days so we are warm and humid and summer has arrived even if the kids are still in school
I will check and see if I can host in the June slot for Kay. He has been super busy and keeps leaving me and I need him here to host as I get into a mess and need my tech guy hee hee will let you know asap. Kor I really wish they could fix you girl. I think I need to start sending you some of my tea. Look for it in your stores it is called red bush or Rooibos and is very good for those sort of things. My youngest son was allergic big time as a baby and I would give him that tea instead of water in his bottle and he got over the allergies pretty well. It is the highest antioxidant tea there is. Otherwise give me your address and I will mail you some
I am busy trying to finish up my flower ATC swap cards only have 4 to go whoo hoo although it has been so much fun even if I still have to find time to go comment on them and the doors both I am way behind on commenting and so wish I could steal a day or three to do it.
Oh well soon
Have a good day folks and enjoy whatever weather you have going it will change soon anyway

Re: Weeders Monthly Chat for May 2012

Kor, so sorry that cough is hanging on. Maybe Astrid's tea will help. The weather here has been wet but warmer, 68F this morning. It's been a busy week on top of a stressful last week, nothing major just some issues with some of the artists in the gallery. Not totally resolved but my blood pressure is moving back down to its normal low. Slept late this morning so I'm behind... off to get some things done and maybe sneak in some time for the wde.

Re: Weeders Monthly Chat for May 2012

I don't pop in here often, but there is something one off happening tomorrow night. I am not sure if some of you know but I am a radio presenter on local radio based at the hospital, but it goes out around North Warwickshire.



I wasn't around yesterday because I had a really abd day. i was in bed all day - couldn't get out, but I'm better for it today.


I need the energy for tomorrow night. The radio station is presenting a live event tomorrow called 'Battle of the Bands' and actually they aren't all bands there is a solo artist and a duo and various genres of music. i'm the presenter for the radio - reporting as it happens and doing the itnerviews etc. You will be able to hear the music AND me presenting it!!


If you would like to hear me live on air - on this Saturday night I am presenting 'Battle of The Bands - Live' from the event starting at 7pm BST. Go to www.ankerradio.co.uk and click on the 'Listen Live' button.

If you go to that website you can hear me in action!!!!!!

I think it will be afternoon for you guys in the US

http://www.timeanddate.com/worldcloc...in+Goodwin&iso

We have been asked about streaming so many times and been unable to do it. This is an experiment before commiting to some equipment. If you'd like to see what I do - It can be heard all over the world. If you d o listen in - let me know what you think.

Not sure about all the places but it will be around 11am noonish for USA.

It isn't all bands, there are also acoutsing and solo singer and duet with all sorts of music.

Re: Weeders Monthly Chat for May 2012

Maureen hubby says so far it looks good for me to be able to host (read he hasn't any trips planned) so unless they snag him last minute I am your girl. If they do we will try set it up anyway. I took a picture of a sweet kitty at a friends house yesterday to add to my stash as I really don't have many animals.
Maureen sorry about the weather where we live that is the saying as hot or cold fronts can come in, in a matter of 2 hours or even less at times. You watch the news if you are going out to see if you need a jacket for coming home hee hee
Helen sorry for the stress my mom always says if you are angry go scrub the bathroom or the kitchen and let the anger work for you
Lin that sounds awesome hope all goes well and you have recovered and are peachy by then. Good luck.

Lin, i tried...... (something) doesnt support the codec..... is what i got at the end... hope it was a roaring success and you were up to it and had a ball.... sorry to have missed it!

been "upright" for a couple hours now, coff starting again... wanted to mention here, if anyone gets coff/throat and lookng for good coughdrops... check ingredients ... (truly, i did not know this) main ingredient for soothing is PECTIN not menthol if throat is sore/hurts.... honey lemon w/pectin... o yes......

Re: Weeders Monthly Chat for May 2012

Kor, sorry your cough lingers. Lin, I missed your stream; hope it was a success. I had a grand day yesterday with one of my painting buddies. She's also a jeweler -- I've mentioned Annie here before. Anyway, she's teaching me metalsmithing and jewelry making. A couple I've done...


Anyway, yesterday we went to a Jewelry Supply show -- wholesale stuff. It was as bad as being in an art supply store and I came home a little poorer but I have lots of supplies to put into necklaces and earrings.
