   Aubreyesque posted on Crafts  Some of the crafts I love to do are crochet and beading/jewelry making and some resin craft. When I discovered Pinterest, I went hog-wild. I have an account at Etsy, but I have yet to set up my inventory. We just bought some property and we're moving to it (gradually )...but one of these days....one of these days!

Any one get one of those Vintaj Sizzix machines? I LOVE THOSE!!!

   Aubreyesque  Gerty - if you love the Vintaj line of jewelry crafts, youll love it.

3XALADY - yes they make a lot of 'cutters' for scrapbooking crafts. The Vintaj version embosses and engraves designs into metal blanks for jewelry making. Lovely stuff.

   Aubreyesque posted on Main Page The Lobby  FANTASTIC idea!! Thank you for setting it up! I love crafts...my biggest problem is I have so many WIPs that I get a little overwhelmed (so this board may not help at all LOL )

   Thewarden  Mom taught me to crochet and embroider. Been a while since I've done any but lovely hobbies. I also got into beading a few years back. I tend to get burned out on one thing and move on. I think crochet is becoming a lost art--knitting seems to be popular again. I need to learn to knit.

   Aubreyesque posted on Gardening & Landscaping  Do any of you have garden blogs? For the last few years I have been through the cycle of falling under the spell of spring fever, buying up all these plants, buying up even more dirt (to the point where it has become a traditional birthday gift), and having all these grand plans and visions of a vibrant productive garden, only to give up around July because the heat is just too much (I live on the Gulf coast of Texas). So whenever the cool weather shows up again in the fall, the garden is so far gone that I end up shrugging and saying "I'll wait til February" and the cycle starts all over again. This year I thought if I wrote a blog to detail what I was doing, Id be compelled to go out and manage it better because who wants to put up pictures of weeds and overgrown plants? Id like to fill my link list with blogs on gardening as well...

   Ms P  I live in West Central FL and I know what you mean. After May the heat/humidity are so oppressive that's hard to even breathe when you are outdoors, much less weed or dig. I also have trouble finding plants that can make it through the summers other than lantana, bright eyes, pentas, bougies, and a few other. Any other suggestions for heat hardy plants? It's a plus if they'll also survive through the cooler fall weather.

   Belwhatter  Pacific Northwest maritime climate here, region 7. First time out side to do some actual work was March 4th. Despite repeated freezes most things appear to have survived. Nature always amazes me., and when crocus and grape hyacinth reappear it is like having Christmas gifts.

   Aubreyesque posted on Main Page The Lobby  My deepest condolences and sincerest prayers. There are no words I can offer that would blunt the grief, but know that my thoughts and prayers are for you and your family. May God be with you all!

   Aubreyesque posted on Suggested Reading  Patrick O'Brian - the "Aubreiad" - a 21 book series, set in Regency/Napoleonic England, featuring the friendship of RN Captain Jack Aubrey and Doctor/Naturalist/Spy, Stephen Maturin (the movie is awfully good too).

   MysteryLover  Loved these books. If you like drama on the high seas try them out. I learned many of the things we say daily are nautical in origin. A good book to buy if you get addicted to Jack Aubrey is "Companion to the Complete Seafaring Tales of Patrick O"Brian" by Dean King. It explains nautical terms, etc. Some of the expression we use - scuttlebutt, three sheets to the wind, by and large, son of a gun.

   Crunchycon  A bit of trivia - Patrick O'Brian and Charlton Heston were close friends, and he wrote "Lucky Jack" with Chuck in mind. I prefer Forester's "Hornblower" series myself, but the idea of my personal favorite movie star as Aubrey is intriguing.

   Aubreyesque posted on Main Page The Lobby  I was curious to know about why each of us chose our username. I chose mine because I am a huge fan of the Patrick O'Brian novels "the Aubreiad" and its character Jack Aubrey.

   Timber Queen  We refugeed to the Northern California Coastal Range Mountains from Los Angeles eleven years ago. We have 40 acres and a red Dodge Ram truck (instead of the mule). We have open pasture land, and a forest full of Douglas Fir, Oaks, Madrone, Maples, and even a big Bay tree along the year-round creek. As we say in California, "Whiskey is for drinkin' and water is for fightin' over." I'm also a fan of the old movies on TCM and believe there is a film called "Timber Queen" starring Barbara Stanwyck.

   Nugoddess  I was the only woman working for a forklift company and was called ''Parts Goddess'' by one of the guys. When I went back to school, I was elected Executive VP of the Kappa Nu chapter of Phi Theta Kappa so I became ''NuGoddess'' in honor of my chapter. They call me ''Goddess'' at the hospital where I work but my biker name is ''Booger''.

Go figure.

   Doublesharp  I'm a retired fruit peddler. Classic old school operation, get up 4am, shop the Haymarket & the Louisville Produce Terminal, get back to my market asap and sell, sell, sell. One of my many suppliers top salesman always referred to his top shelf merchandise as doublesharp brand. I stole the word from Whitey.

I was originally droy and, in a fit of irrational exuberance, I asked for a name change to gop2030 after the 04 elections. When Lucianne opened the doors to new registrations a couple years ago I re-registered as doublesharp since that's the name I go by on the gun and lawnsite forums I hang out in. Whew, Ask what time it is and I tell ya how to build a watch :-)

   Golla  This my third or fourth "nom-de-plume" on Lucianne. I've been here since Monica days - joined after seeing Mizz Lucianne interviewed about Linda Tripp, and loved her spunk. Had to check it out.

This name is nonsense and easy to remember and lets me be totally anonymous to friends and family to sometimes lurk here. I refuse to do Facebook so their noses might be out of joint if they know that I'll be checking this site out.

   MysteryLover  Devoured the series of books about Lucky Jack Aubrey!! My screen name is pretty much self-explanatory. Love mysteries. The Sparrowhawk series is awesome if you haven't read them.

   Aubreyesque posted on Main Page The Lobby  Hello Lcom - thank you so much for this page!

I know everyone on here has had their ups and downs in watching the returns - I know I did, stayed up til 3 am to see if Fiorina and Angle would pull through like Toomey did, but alas to no avail. Still, I think if the chips were to have fallen any other way, we could not have seen better results (aside from taking the majority in the Senate) but I think there is wisdom in the chips that we did not...look at the opportunity the conservatives have with pinning Reid to the wall with any obstruction he offers!

Congratulations to all the new Representatives, Senators, governors and those in the state districts!
