Fred says he has a snow shovel that you are welcome to borrow. He's just not sure where he left it. He thinks Spike might have borrowed it.

See above answer

I have quite the assortment of glasses. Not sure if any two are the same. Many are 16oz glasses that followed me home from the bar or restaurant. Others started out life as a jar but somehow ended up on the glass shelf.

Glass ? Mainly
Plastic ? Actually a fairly large number
Foam ?

Not likely. Have not been home since the beginning of December

You're thoughtful with the fairies today, Karla - I know they'll be busy on the east coast! I just came in from salting the ice on our driveway; we didn't get as much snow as a lot of places did, but what we got turned into a skating rink last night, and I don't want to land on my tush when I head out to work.

Today's Question(s):

What type of "machine"do you use to prepare your morning coffee?


We use an automatic drip machine.

How much coffee do you usually drink each morning?

I can't function without my usual half of a twelve-cup pot of strong coffee.

Bonus Question:

What kind of glasses do you use for general beverage consumption around your home

Glass?
Plastic?
Foam?


We either use glass or plastic, depending on the situation and the beverage.

Extra Credit Question:

When was the last time you were a tad "Cranky"?


That has happened several times this week. The most recent involved a big variance (a loss) in one category of inventory, and I traced it down to a particular set of transactions that occurred last month. I sent an email to the buyer for that category asking about it, and got a response that basically said "ask so-and-so, it's something he knows about." Ok, fine, sent an email to so-and-so asking the same question, and got a reply back that said "it's something that such-and-so did, you'd need to ask her," referring me back to the first person. Grrrrrr......

What is your favorite way to become "Un-cranky"?

Coming home and venting to my poor patient spouse, who listens, sympathizes and then dishes up a big pot of home-made beef-barley soup for supper.

Just for Fun:

Are there any Valentine Decorations around your home?


Nope.

Ladies, how many of us have "colorful toes "?

Not I. I don't paint any part of my body - face, fingernails or toenails.
