@snicks  Did your daughter find another job?  Will the VA do something for her to help her find a new job in their new location?  Aren't they going to Cal?  Will they love the climate there?

@Dawniee

A strand was started on outdoor colors of houses and while looking up pictures, there were swatches of door colors and house colors/trims that are "IN"

I will post a link to that thread here, in case anyone is interested.

@Capatosta, scary! I remember when I was 12, I was in the kitchen with my mother. I was making one of those spray snow Christmas trees out of a Readers Digest, shaking the can like crazy. My mom was percolating a pot of coffee on the top of the stove when the heating element blew. OMG! Lit up the whole house and yard! Hot molten pieces flying everywhere! Neither of us got hit. The funniest thing was she first thought it was the spray can. Never saw my dad come running so fast in his life.

@LTT1, just answered @Capatosta about the movers. Big rig driver is doing fine, she has been in Pa, Ind.,Ohio, and now in Mn, this week. She definitely isn't letting any grass grow under 18 wheels. She won't be here with us on the 20th due to choosing to be home for Christmas, but her 3 kids and 2 grandbabies will be here. We will really miss her though, it's been quite a few years since we were all together at the same time, much less at holiday time.

I was soooo happy to see that AM Style was on -- finally!  a program other than "Great Gifts" -- but Wen?    I think I'll go clean the hall bathroom.

@snicks, your poor daughter, sounds like she had to drive through a lot of snow. We got another foot on Tuesday, in her line of travel. I didn't leave my house for two days.
