Hi Kate, I just got home from babysitting Payton and Addison. Elizabeth said you had arrived home safely. I will speak to you soon.

Thanks for visiting my page, Kate. I was beginning to think no one loves me as I hadn't had a message for over two weeks!

Kate, for dropping in and also all the wonderful notes you left behind in my gallery.

I must admit, I hadn't given it much thought to sending in pics for the jigsaws. May is really hectic here, so may look into it next month sometime.
Thanks again.

Have an amazing weekend.

Kate, no wonder your computer got overloaded! Wow, I can hardly keep up with all your new photos. Forgot to say I love the action shot of Ralph. He's a great looking dog - I think he & Ebony would be a stunning couple!!! Bet they would love swimming together. Does he have any girlfriends now? Have a good weekend.

Gee, Ralph is lucky to have so many playmates in so many different places! He's obviously a very popular "guy". In addition to swimming, it looks like his gang also enjoys fetching. Ebony much prefers sticks to tennis balls. It's so funny to watch her hunt for the ones we throw in the More...

Thank you Kate for making my birthday a special one.
Many sudoku friends from around the world coming to visit me and wishing me a Happy Birthday have overwhelmed me.
My Husband and sons took me out to dinner to a Chinese Restaurant, and on the Sunday, we had a delicious Roast Dinner at MIL’s.

Thanks for the info on the Lunar Park picture, Kate. It looked like a place we would have liked to visit but with only 2 nights in Sydney and a full schedule of events planned for us, there just wasn't enough time. We could have easily spent a week in Sydney. Oh well, maybe another time.

Oh my gosh!!!! I had about 22 messages in my inbox today just from Sudoku friends wishing me a 'Happy Birthday'! Thank you so much for all of your kind thoughts and wishes especially when I haven't been around for so long. It has been a wonderful day and a lovely weekend. Rick and I went away to a More...

Hi Kate,
Thanks for your message re Mum. The support from the wonderful people on this site has been amazing and very much appreciated. I will probably come to Sydney some time in July - perhaps we could meet in Lindfield for a coffee?

Hi Kate. Thanks for dropping by. I haven't been around all that much this year. I haven't even been posting on my other sites either. We have been fairly busy and over the last week or two I just seem to be in a real slump emotionally. Looks like you have been busy with the camera. Great photos by the way!!

for the birthday greetings! This was my first Sudoku birthday and I was overwhelmed by all of the good wishes! It made having one of those "biggie" birthdays almost enjoyable...!

Wanted to let you know how good it was to be remembered on my bithday by so many...one may think that when you are as old as I, birthdays would be 'old hat', but I don't feel that way and my Sudoku family helped make a good day better...glad you were a part of that.

Hi there. Thanks for stopping by to wish a newbie a warm welcome. I'm intrigued by your gifts. I've never had Tasmanian anything before.
Do you think these raspberries are much different than the wild black raspberries that will be blooming around my place in about a month? More...

Thank you Kate, for the lovely compliments regarding my artwork. You chose some of my favorite pieces for your comments. Your photography is spectacular, and your gardening skills are superb. My black thumbs would fade right into the background against your green ones! Your large photo of the More...

Kate, I have looked & looked but can't find the picture you mentioned of a painted bunting. I checked the Birds set & a few other possibilities & still couldn't spot it. Can you help me??? Thanks.
Have a good day!

 |  |

Hi Kate! You mentioned that you had started a new page so I mistakenly thought the picture of the painted bunting was on the page, not in the coffee shop - ha ha! It's interesting that they displayed a picture of an American bird, when Australia has many more brightly colored birds there than we More...

The weather in Sydney sounds horrible today. Just what IS the temperature? I looked it up on weather.com and it didn't sound so bad. Do you wood heat? Did the electricity go out for many households in Sydney, or are you one of the lucky ones out on a country service line?

Its my right leg about an inch or two above my ankle which was so dilocated that my leg was facing north and my foot was completly facing east. I had a few surgeries to get it back together, but now it is plated and screwed together and I can't walk for about 5 1/2 more weeks, but whose counting. Ha ha

Hello Kate - I have posted my Salsa on the recipe page under forum. I must appologize. I do not have a recipe. These are our favorite ingredients. We discovered some of these ingredients when we went to Mexico about 10 years ago. Their salsa was out of this world!!! If you make a batch, I guarantee it won't last long!

Wow, I'm learning here. Thanks for answering. I hate it when we lose electricity -- and no sudoku.
Seems that the temps here on the first day of summer are about the same as your first day of winter! Should I feel cheated or envious of you all or what? Still, we've had a good crop More...

Kate from Sydney I don't know why they have withdrawn the YouTube of Faryl singing in the final but I have replaced it on my page with her audition video.
She has a voice that will be tingling our spines for many years to come, and only 12 years old.

Hello Kate - I see you came by and visited! It is always nice to have you stop. You flowers are just beauuuutifullll!!!! What is the one on the upper left hand corner? Is it a blossom from a Christmas Cactus? I see you are "burning wood." We burn wood all winter to heat our house. More...

Hi Kate. I've just fed your fish so they should get nice and fat. They must be happy swimming around underneath your glorious flower collage.
I don't think I'd even get a visa to China, let alone being stopped at the border!
I always enjoy checking out your photos on Flickr. Keep them coming! And do drop in again.

Kate - I have to ask. Just who is this person on the motorcycle doing a wheelie? Anyone you know? What kind of a motorcycle is it?

Ooooh, yes a real terror! I am told that my father bought me an expensive American doll, blue eye blond. After seeing my mother at the beauty salon, at age 2, I thought I'd make a really neat beautician too. So to the horror of my nanny, I proceeded to cut the doll's hair very short! And I More...

Hi Kate,

Thanks for the link to Sue's photos. She has some really great photos of flora, just as you have. I envy both of you, being so knowledgeable about plants and flowers. I grew up in a funeral home and had my fill of seeing/smelling flowers, and I've just gotten interested in them More...
