Knitting Community

I kind of surprised myself today. All day at work I would think how much fun this was going to be knowing I was going to be casting while others will be casting on, or begin spinning. I am just plain excited and dare I say a little giddy. I got out of work on time and have my basket all ready to go. DH is getting take out so I don't have to even worry about cooking dinner. Have the coffee ready and I have feeling I just might stay up past my bedtime tonight. I mean the Winter Olympics only come every four years.

So I am just waiting to cast on for these Knitting Olympics while watching the opening ceremonies this evening. I always enjoy the winter Olympics, get excited for those who have trained and worked so hard to get to this moment, but I didn't realize how excited I would be with my knitting challenge.

So to all you out there getting ready for tonight!

Happy Olympics!!!

Mary, I'm terrible at crossword puzzles but my DH subscribes to the NY Times online specifically so he can do the crossword. As far as having issues with ties, I totally understand. At one time we had someone who grew up with us who was our postman [if I wanted to be politically correct it would be "our mail carrier"]. He has undergraduate and PhD degrees from Rice University — brilliant guy but has the same kind of issues as your brother. It just goes to show we shouldn't judge how smart someone is by what they do for a living. ♥c

pretty much Cheryl-a friend's dad used to say that all you needed to know to be considered an expert was one thing more than anybody else..think I've got people fooled. It helps to do a lot of crossword puzzles too! My brother's a pretty smart cookie-when he had a cleaning company, he noticed that one of the people in an office he cleaned was doing the NY Times daily-the guy could only get about 1/4 the way through..when my brother got done cleaning, he would finish the puzzle and leave it on the person's desk. Not bad for the cleaning guy eh? He had issues wearing a tie--at the age of 65 he still does.

Oh, Mary, you have me giggling! I typically know a little bit about a lot — just enough to get me up the creek without a paddle. ♥c

The IMDB is one of favorite spots too Cheryl. As far as music and movies go, my coworker Mike is great--especially with the 80's. I give props to my ex-husband for the 60's and 70's music though..Everything else I just sort of know--don't know why, it just happens? Maybe I'm a little strange? People are strange..when your a stranger..faces look ugly when your alone...yikes..maybe I need more tea? Peggy, is there any more chocolate left?
Snowboarding didn't work out so well for us today eh? poor lindsay..

Oh, I forgot to mention my best source!! Shame on me. My best source is my personal encyclopedia, a/k/a my DH. I'm embarrassed that I forgot to mention the source. I mean he can remember names of boys I went out with one time and I don't know who in the world he is talking about! ♥c

Well, for movie info, my favorite site is the Internet Movie Database. For medical stuff, I usually start with Most other stuff, I just google. That's why sometimes I'll see a comment, start to reply, realize I want to research something, finish the reply (sometimes hours later) and then find a ton of others have already made comments when no one else had commented when I started my reply.

Mary, about Clint Howard, little Ronny [although he really is older than Clint] frequently includes Clint, his father Rance Howard, and 2 of his daughters in supporting roles. It's rather hard to not spot Clint or Rance because the 3 of them look so much alike, especially Ron and Rance.

It's amazing what you can find on the internet. Just don't take it for the gospel truth. ♥c

No kidding. I make sure my coffee is a t one end and my knitting on the other end of the keyboard. Taking a little break. Sort of..

Knit: I have long arms. The coffee has to be across the room. You never know what you're going to read next! --P

Oh my goodness did a miss bunch over here! That just tells you how my day has been going. Peggy I will definitely look into And There I Stood With My Piccolo. Cheryl you are a wiz with the internet and I love Ron Howard. Sharon your right NEVER read current comments with coffee in your mouth. ROFL! and keep the coffee mug a good distance from the keyboard.

Cheryl--how DO you find this stuff. I could use you at work sometimes. My coworkers are always asking me to find some tidbit of information--they seem to think I know a little about the internet..hmm wonder why?!lol I love his movies--and has his brother Clint been in every one do you know? Or just most? It's always fun trying to spot him..
