Hey! Austin!! Cool!!! I know some Pagan musicians from Austin, Lynda Millard, her son Taber, and Ginger Doss, though I think Ginger technically doesn't live there. They all used to be in Velvet Hammer, which morphed into Dreamtrybe, but they've all been recording and performing separately for a while, getting together to play on the road now and then. Lynda is just a hoot and a half! You should look her up if you end up in Austin. She's at Facebook. ++ Ya know, as long as you're able to have lots of animals in your life, who cares who does what? Critters are their own reward, regardless. >^..^< ++ I **love** the Mariachi kittehs you uploaded! How purrfect is that?! :D

If you do go to Texas I hope the town is in one of the more lush, rolling hills areas. There are some beautiful sites in the eastern half of TX. In the far west, though... the landscape has its own aesthetic, one I enjoyed visiting many years ago, but I think it's probably an acquired taste for long term stays. Lots of flat open areas, but some with cool buttes, bluffs, and desert ecosystems. If it happens to be Austin or thereabouts (in the middle of the state), you're in luck. They have a thriving arts and music scene and the (unofficial?) city motto is "Keep Austin Weird." ++ An animal rescue sounds like a lot of work, but extremely rewarding work. Would you be looking at wild animal rehab? Is that why you'd need to be in a more remote area? Or just so you can have a lot of dogs and cats? There's also always lots of volunteer work that could use extra hands (and hearts). That way you could do something fulfilling without the added stress of having to be in charge. Unless you *like* being in charge, lol. ++ You know... I really like the idea of an Old Peeps home. We'd certainly all have the ability to keep each other laughing! ++ Shmang-U fur shuh byumafull caeksh... Sorry, had my mouth full... Fang-Q fur the byootimus caek! We May peeps are gonna have to pace ourselves on those multiple tiers. Prolly be more than a few of the other kind of tears, too, destroying the gorgeous (cherry?) blossoms to get to the... ***CHOCOLATE-FUDGE*** center. Regrettable, but I think you can make out where my (and others') priorities lie. ;P ++ BB backacha. :D

LOL I was going to ask if yu or the kittehs ornery 'n sleepy *snicker* Harley loves driving Magic crazy. It's not hard, all he has to do is sit down close to her and she goes off complaining - hissing and growling. Harley will look at me with that "I didn' touch her" look. LOL And of course Mauy's hanging back waiting for an open butt to show. Then she runs.....swats....and runs down the hall. If Harley or Magic go after her, she runs to me whining "mama dey picking on me". It's so nice when they all fall asleep at the same time. LOL

Hi, thanks for asking! The flood waters are gone, but they left damage. I have a slumlord for an owner, so I cannot expect any compensation. But I am fine and the damage was not as bad as it could have been. I hope all is well with you. I seem to remember someone saying you had suffered a job loss. I remember how much you loved your job and the celebrities you worked with. I hope I heard wrong.

Sorry I forgot to get back to you when I sent the Earth Day message. If staying where you've always been is what you want, I wish you all the luck you need to find another job. How is the job market in LA? I think with your history at an industry workshop should look pretty good on a resume. ++ I'm not sure I could move away if I'd always lived in the same place, either. It's been hard enough for me to move the few times I have, and that's *without* having been in the same place. I was 3 when we moved from Little Rock to Chicago, but I don't really remember anything about LR. When I was 11 we moved to the Kansas City area. That was tough, though I'm not sure if it was easier or harder than moving from the town I'd lived in for 15 years to join my husband where he lived, 200 miles away. The distance wasn't as far as some of the other moves but it meant going from being near a major metro area to being in a town much smaller than I'd ever lived in. We're not too far from Wichita, which has between 300 and 400,000, but it just doesn't feel like a big city. I think it was the small town vibe that was harder to deal with, but that's me. Some folks like that more. I might have, too, if I hadn't grown up near the bigger cities. I have grown to love a lack of crazy traffic, though, lol. ++ Wherever you end up there should be something to recommend it; there usually is if a person looks hard enough. And, of course, I wish you luck and happiness any and everywhere! (((Hugs)))

LOL what parent isn't happy to have a little free time. Yea the new cheezlerds weren't around for that crap nor do they know how great this place was before it. It's too bad we can't turn the clocks back to pre-beta time. We've lost too many good people. But I'm stubborn (the German in me) and I'm not willing to leave my great friends. So I'll stick it out. But don't expect me not to whine a bit.

I was making LoLs on my lunchbreak and coffeebreak at work. That box was there and I could not save a LoL until I put a check mark on the box to say that I am not a robot. I'm used to seeing those capsha things on other sites but here in cheezland? Back when humans moderated the site it was probably easier to sniff out dodgy material. I had no trouble uploading the image but apparently I won't be able to make LoLs if I can't attest to the fact that I am not a robot.
