Hi all!

What was the last thing you attempted to do that turned into a "project" ?
Unfortunately I tend to be a bit obsessive, so almost everything I attempt turns into a project... so sometimes it's easier not to attempt anything!

Extra Credit Question:

Is your home "company ready" at this moment ?
Hmmm... depends who's coming. It's okay for a good friend, but not up to par if the Queen's coming for tea.

If not how long would it take to make it "company ready" ? I
f their eyesight isn't great, probably 30 minutes ... if they can see cobwebs, then I'd need at least two hours.


Bonus Question:

How many catalogs do you get at your home ?
We don't get as many catalogs as you guys do in the US... maybe 3 or 4 a year (plus a mountain of junk mail from local stores, supermarkets etc. advertising their wares, but you have to go to the store to buy the stuff).

Which is your favorite ?
None of them

Last time you ordered something from a catalog ?
About three years ago - a wall-mounted thingie for keeping paper towel, saran wrap and aluminium foil on.

Just for Fun:

What are your expected High & Low temps for today ?
I'm guessing - probably 60F overnight and 75F high tomorrow

How many of our QOTD family are still using their A/C ?
It's winter here, so I haven't used it for a while!

When do you think you will be able to turn it off ?
I only use it as required (not 24/7)... probably sometime during November I'll need to start using it now and again.

Have a great day!

nother busy day ahead, but first

Today's Question(s):

What was the last thing you attempted to do that turned into a "project" ? It seems every little thing around here always turns into a "project". Working on the Vette this weekend...hubby goes to replace the door handle...won't come off easily, (and long story short) ends up ripping the 40+ yr. old door panel. Now that needs to be replaced...and it won't match the opposite door panel when done, so that one will have to be replaced.



Extra Credit Question:

Is your home "company ready" at this moment ? Actually, pretty much! I'm a neat-nik...so I would not be embarrassed if someone should walk in the door this very second.

If not how long would it take to make it "company ready" ?


Bonus Question:

How many catalogs do you get at your home ? A gazillion! If you order out of one...they sell your address...and then there are the bazillion car catalogs.

Which is your favorite ? Chicos

Last time you ordered something from a catalog ?I do ALOT of on-line shopping from catalogs. Probably within the last few days.


Just for Fun:

What are your expected High & Low temps for today ? 97 and 80

How many of our QOTD family are still using their A/C ?


When do you think you will be able to turn it off ?
Oct or Nov?
