So I looked up their website too and they weren't that expensive...so I bought three boxes of 24 each for my friends here, then a box of specialty salami/meats and cheeses for my neighbors (Larry has diabetes or I'd have bought petit fours for him and his wife too), and then...the best part of all... ..... I bought the box of 120 petit fours for.......
MYSELF!!! I can't wait for the package to arrive!!
Merry Christmas to meeeee, Merry Christmas to meeeee, Merry Christmas dear MoMark.... Merry Christmas to MEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

HAHAHAHAHA.
By the way, I forgot to add that the diamonds should be totally carbonless and I like emerald cut - in case you want two moms!

(I'm sure she will be tickled and thrilled )

Emerald cuts are classic... but...have you seen the revised emerald cut that includes elements of a brilliant pavilion? I'm talking about the Asscher cut diamond...WOWIE ZOWIE! (licks chops). Those are incredibly classic, but you get the fire of a brilliant added too...it's a magical diamond. I wouldn't mind having one....and I'd settle a VVS1..even a VVS2, D-F color, and maybe even settle for a bit smaller than the photo I s'pose...

That cut is gorgeous but I'm afraid my wallet has limitations. How many carats is that?

It didn't say how big that Asscher diamond is, I'm guessing 25 carats or more. As for your present for you mom, both are beautiful, it's just a question of diamond size, and honestly, at those high qualities, the diamonds in the smaller Diamonds by the Yard necklace will sparkle beautifully. It really is about quality over size in the case of diamonds and no one puts together nicer diamond pieces than Tiffany Very nice. Your mom will need Depend Undergarments when she opens that package!

Very True, I learned about the four C's of buying a diamond and that size isn't everything. A clear and well-cut diamond (in my opinion) is worth more than a huge honkin' one.

Sorry, but there is really only one mom for me...otherwise I may go broke. But thank you again, I feel special.

Tiffany has some great jewelry for every budget though. Heck you can get a great silver chain for $100 plus you get that signature Blue Box.

Default Lawn/Garden Invention (Read about this in the AZ Newspaper)

Read about this in the Arizona Republic a couple of weeks and bought a couple for myself and relatives. Article was about an inventor here in AZ and his lawn/garden invention (was more about his business struggles, good info, btw good info for any small business owners). Thought it was pretty unique..

Anyway, if you want to check out the article the link is:
azcentral.com/community/scottsdale/articles/1114sr-biz1115smallbiz-ON.html

And I think the guy's website is azezcaddy.com I think (Don't hold me to that! not the greatest memory here lol)

Merry X-mas!
