Just stopping in to say HELLO! Enjoyed reading and seeing what folks are doing and thinking about!

ManofBethesda: the house is gorgeous!

Looking forward to Spring finally being here. I was in snow this past weekend and today, high of 66 - forecast for 80 by Monday. It's been a roller coaster with the weather . . .

SO, after a few days of sunshine and temps in the 60's, a powerful winter storm is forecast Friday through the weekend with two feet of snow and below freezing nighttime lows here. I have plenty of firewood, hot chocolate and my snow boots are by the patio door.


Bring it on!
LOL! Either newbies to Colorado or eternal optimists!

I hopped on my bike this morning to deliver my granddaughter's Girl Scout tunic with two new patches sewn on. It's a two mile ride each way and with the weather high that had been sitting over us, the weather has been beautiful. I stopped halfway there to take a pic, the sky was so pretty.

Default Reps

When you rep someone, do you usually use the quick rep (lower left hand corner) or the scales icon (upper right hand corner)? The latter allows us to leave a written comment with our rep. However, I think most people use the former, as the vast majority of reps I get are "quick reps". I prefer to take the few extra seconds if I am repping someone in order to leave a (usually) brief comment and type in my user name.

I often think it would be nice to know who liked my posts but I seldom get that pleasure. For example in the last three days I've had 16 reps, only two of which were not quick reps, but even the two that were not did not sign their names. Perhaps some folks think that typing a rep comment will automatically show up with identification, like a post does or like a direct message does.

Not an terribly mportant matter, for sure, but it's a thought I've had more than once.

Thanks for explaining the scales.

I always use the scale and usually write a short comment. I then "sign" my rep MMoB so that the individual knows who wrote it.

Hi everyone!

It got up to the mid-70's here and everyone was out in the sunshine in shorts and T-shirts.

Officer Clark was in his hot polyester uniform. Ugh.

I have to plead guilty for not leaving an ID when I rep someone. Sometimes I do but mostly not. And I agree that I also like knowing who reps me. So I guess I should 'change my ways'.
