  1. Kim - that's my problem! Family event that I didn't know about when I bought the ticket. And I thought I was getting off easy getting the $75 ticket! Then my daughter and SIL want me to babysit our grandson - overnight at our house! It'll be the very first time they will leave him overnight - it's their 11th anniversary. I am willing to donate the ticket if no one else wants it!
  2. Speaking of the balcony... I jumped the gun and bought a ticket, and I totally can't go! Any takers?
  3. Hi All! I've been lurking a bit since Joseph started, so I thought I'd decloak and say hi! Wasn't Joseph a hoot!! I loved it!! Sorry I missed any of you up there, I went when my broad friends decided to go and they gave me a ride most of the way up there!! I only had to drive to PA. I miss those road trip days! I hope you all are well, I see some of you on FB, so we are not totally disconnected. Love that Clay has decided that Twitter is not the devil any more. I got in on the big Twitter/follower push while we were up in Maine and got to tell KorywithaK that I had just started following him the day before. Clay was also following me, not sure if he still is, because he said he'd unfollow everyone after the 25th. Brat! I don't tweet much either, but it's a really good way to keep tabs on what my kids are doing. We mostly communicate by twitter, fb, email, and texts! An occasional phone call. LOL I tweeted back to Clay after his pigeon/statue tweet, "Way to be cryptic, Clay!" Love the pictures he's tweeted lately. He seems to have become more comfortable with us! We are getting ready for my daughter, sil, and grandson (18 mos) to come tomorrow and stay with us for about 10 days while their one and only bathroom gets remodeled. I think tonight will be the last peaceful night of sleep we'll get for awhile! I usually visit about once a week and babysit while they run errands, go out to dinner, etc. They live close to DC in Arlington, which is about 30 miles from here.... 45 minute drive on a good day! Rt. 66 can be a real bummer at times! In the process of putting together a crib... Wouldn't it be nice if Clay did another Broadway show... or a Christmas tour!! Keep your fingers crossed!
  4. Hi again to you too Fear! shortyjill - there was a strict no clack policy, I didn't see anyone even raise a camera or cell phone! BUT - there are a few pics on this ClayAikenNews page: http://claynewsnetwo...-wow-just-wow-2
  5. Hello Long Lost Board Mates! I was really happy to meet up with a few of you all at the Gala yesterday! Due to a communication glitch I missed the Elephant and Castle - so sad!! Next time I'll pay more attention. Had a great time all in all - I hope Clay comes back here again next year!!
  6. I'll be going to Lancaster and NYC!! Are there any parties?
  7. Hey Couchie and everyone!!! I have a Kindle and I really like it. I carry it to dr's appts and other places where I'll need some reading material. I think the main advantage of the Kindle is that you don't need a computer to get new books. It's wireless and the wireless service is no additional charge. You can buy a new book anywhere you can get a signal. It doesn't have a backlight which at times is inconvenient but is also easier on your eyes. There are inexpensive lightweight clip-on lights you can buy to go with it. I bought one a couple of months ago and have only used it once so far. Here's a video (and a selection of others) that compares the 3 e-readers - Nook, Sony, and Kindle. I've had my Kindle almost a year now. The kids gave me Amzon GC's last year to help me buy it. Now my daughter has one too. I haven't researched the Nook Book but I've heard that the main advantage to it is that you can trade/borrow books from other users. Good luck!!
  8. a little too early to tell - but possibly Asheville, and possibly NY - hoping for something a little closer tho!!
  9. Just preordered Clay's CD - but the price went up to $18.98! Booo Hisss!!! See ya in Raleigh!! eta: I canceled it... I'm sure it will be available for less later...
  10. I also think Conan is a nice guy - I know he did jokes about Clay, but so did everybody else. Conan basically got screwed by NBC and Leno had a lot to do with it. I boycotted Conan's show forever, but then found out I'd missed a lot of good comedy! I really enjoyed his interview with James Lipton on Inside the Actor's Studio. It was genius. I hear he's putting together a comedy tour which I might be interested in if it doesn't conflict with Clay. FTR - I hate the insult dog and the m'bating bear!
  11. This CMSU Who says the Baptists don't have a sense of humour? Nice to see you, cha cha. Hope we get to say hey in Raleigh! Hey Cindi! Me too! I am riding with my friend from PA who loves to get an early start - but I'm going to ask about going to the breakfast! So excited about seeing Clay sing!!! :04:
  12. Kim, apparently some folks are lacking in that department!
  13. Do you mean in the composition window? Because I can see everything, so it must be an IE6 thing. But how weird that must be for you!! FWIW - I've been using Google Chrome instead of IE recently - it works great!
  14. ausdon - hard work doesn't begin to describe it! Here are some pictures: this is the view from the front door - that little bubble of snow is the birdbath - to give you a clue of how deep is was! The slight depression straight out is the walkway! Here's the front porch all covered with snow. This is the view of the house after I shoveled two thirds of the way to the mailbox! And "Bunco" is a game played with dice, accompanied by several glasses of wine! We get together every month and play and sometimes do other stuff together! It's fun!! The new board is certainly different but I don't see any problems yet! Good job mods!
