Hi All,  There was no list yesterday due to lack of post.

Effective immediately the digest will be published on a new schedule based
totaly on the membership posting volume. Member post drive the list so when
10 post are collected by the collection software  the list will be published.

This is due to the lack of post recently.  It will take approximately 1 percent of the
members posting to get the digest published. this amounts to 13 post currently.

If you want to see the list daily get those post in.

Thurmond

Hi Carl,  I hope you get more post per day than we do. It is pretty bad when less
that 1/2 of 1 percent of our members post on any given day.

Hi Thurmond,

Could you please publish a note to let people know that we're having a
Holiday rough sale.  We're having it fairly early so that people will have
time to get their material cut before they need to send/give it.  Most
everything is on sale, and some items are very discounted.  They include
some new blue/green tourmaline we just got in, aquamarine, Montana
sapphire, amethyst, citrine, garnet, select pieces of tourmaline,
bytownite, iolite, African moldavite, and more.  You can see it all at
http://qualitygemrough.com/

Also, we're now able to accept American Express in addition to Visa and
Mastercard, so that may make it more convenient for some people.  As
always, there is a 5-day inspection period to make sure people like their
purchases.

Thanks,

Mike Williams

Am Forwarding this link,too this might give all out there a better idea of
what we  were and  will be dealing with for a long time to come.
I am a very lucky one, who still has the comfort of "home"...It's sad  how
we come to take  true gifts like that for granted; and even more tragic is
only until a disaster strikes do we come to appreciate  all we have been
blessed with. I have a hand ful of friends who lost  all they had. One of
which is  staying with us a few nights a week . He is just now starting to
come out  his daze/shock. I'll save his incredible story for a day
when I've more time.  Thanks for all the concern, and from the pics you will
know it was not unwarranted.

TODAY'S FUNNY ~

THE PAINS OF CHILDBIRTH

     Here are the answers to some questions that you may have had about
pregnancy:

Q. Should I have a baby after 35?
A.  No, 35 children is enough.

Q.  I'm two months pregnant now.  When will my baby move?
A.  With any luck, right after he finishes college.

Q.  How will I know if my vomiting is morning sickness or the flu?
A.  If it's the flu, you'll get better.

Q.  What is the most common pregnancy craving?
A..  For men to be the ones who get pregnant.

Q.  What is the most reliable method to determine a baby's sex?
A.  Childbirth.

Q.  My wife is five months pregnant and so moody that sometimes she's
      borderline irrational.
A.   So what's your question?

Q.  My childbirth instructor says it's not pain I'll feel during
      labor, but pressure. Is she right?

       current.

Q.  When is the best time to get an epidural?
A.  Right after you find out you're pregnant.

Q.  Is there anything I should avoid while recovering from childbirth?
A.   Yes, pregnancy.

TIDBITS AND REFLECTIONS~

While we have the gift of life,
it seems to me the only tragedy
is to allow part of us to die --
whether it is our spirit,
our creativity,
or our glorious uniqueness.
