We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in Australia, but this year I am giving thanks to everybody who saved my life recently! I am thankful just to be here, and while I am, I am able to host the zoom this Saturday Night (US Time!) Come join me!

Hugs,

Allie

Despite having a bad health week, I will be there for the zoom this Saturday Night (US Time). Let me know if you would like to join our eclectic bunch for some laughs and general chatter!

Hugs,

Allie

Our regular Saturday Night (US time) Zoom is going ahead, regulars have been sent the link in pm's and some by facebook messenger as well, the site outage forced me to try other methods of getting to people! I look forward to hearing your ideas how we could keep in contact during a site outage ( nothing to do with technology is infallible!).

Hugs,

Allie

This Saturday Night will be my last chance to zoom with you all this year, as I have family commitments for the other nights and Lexxi will be your host. Christmas this year is special for me as I almost didn’t make it, and it has made me aware how important are the people around me. Let me know if you would like to join our get togethers so I can add you to the list!

Hugs,

Allie

I am planning to be on the zoom meeting on Dec 24th. However, we have a major storm in the forecast for the weekend, and we could be without power. I'll see you all if I see you, but if I'm not there, that will be why.

Wow! Everyone is getting hit with storms this winter. Looks like we have another substantial storm coming down from the north on Tuesday. Warm up that generator Kathy.

Indeed! I will be gassing it up and test-running it tomorrow, as well as bringing in a couple of loads of firewood.

Even though we'll be a day late we'll be celebrating Festivus Saturday night too. It'll be a Festivus for the rest of us. I look forward to seeing everyone.

What a contrast!
While today, Saturday, is lovely here in Melbourne, Australia, with an expected a maximum of 73°, starting on Christmas the next few days are forecast to reach 86°, 84°, 97° & 93° before dropping back to maxima of 66° & 73° on Thursday & Friday. The Tuesday night minimum is expected to be 77°. (Yes, I remember the silly temperature scale and can use it!) This just qualifies as a heat wave, the definition of which includes unusually high minima, but we often get a couple of heat waves a year featuring multiple maxima over 100°. I'm fortunate enough to be able to heat my home and dress well enough to enjoy the cold (although Melbourne rarely gets below freezing), however curiously, my current home is the first I've lived in that has air conditioning. Like so many Australians of my generation, we're used to just coping with the heat.

Kenna you're a lot tougher than me. I can't handle the heat at all. If it gets above 75 the AC usually gets turned on. lol

As I told my brother when he was bragging about similar temperatures in Palm Springs, California, I hope your sunscreen drips into your favourite beverage. :D

We are just happy that our power didn't go out in last night's storm. There's still plenty of time for that to happen.

We are freezing to death here in Florida. The cold wave came in yesterday, and dropped our temps to 46º, and 39º at night. My house cooled down to 60º, and I can't really heat it (just with space heaters). But by Wednesday we should be around 80º. Winters tend to be very short in southern Florida.

Lexxi, I must say though, I do enjoy the AC!

This weeks Zoom will take place on New Years Eve for our US members, and New Years Day for our Aussie members, so if you haven’t got a part to go to, join us as we see in the New Year!

Hugs,

Fair warning for potential attendees:

I plan to participate this week. Probably not at the start so get there early to avoid me.
