Glad you like my daughters. They learned to belly dance at Renaissance Faire is the 60's. My husband and I were making old fashion wooden toys for to sell. The Dickens's Fair was another one of our selling places. The Children (3) were all raised to except weekends were costume events.

G'day Kate! Haven't stopped by in awhile. Glad I got to see the Eastern Water Dragon - he's pretty cool! Looks like he sat nicely & posed for his picture! Hooray for you for coming to the rescue of your neighbor with the stopped-up toilet. Seems like those kind of things always happen when More...

Hi Kate, your name got left off the Clivia photo on hard because it is the one I submitted. I went back and checked my original photo to make sure.
I know you generally have some wonderful photos of flowers. We must both have submitted photos of clivias.

Hi Kate, I won't be home until next week, 7th April. Did dad tell you I would be home because I got an email from him welcoming us home and for us to check his mail as they are in Canberra. The reason they went to Canberra was so that we would be away at the same time and they wouldn't be alone for so long!!!

Hi Kate
Dropping in to ask a big favour from you. I have to make a Chinese Dragon Head, for my daughters Ballet concert this year, and I know you have a photo in your collection some where, from this years Chinese New Year Parade. I was wondering if you could possibly email me a photo of the More...

Kate, I love your water dragon followed by 'Puff the Magic Dragon'.
Also Laura will love feeding the fish next time she is here. (next Wednesday).
You always have some lovely photos on your page and on the puzzles pages.
I thought it a great joke that we both claimed the Clivia photo and More...

Hi Kate! I finally had some time this morning to take a look at your most recent photos. Boy, that dam (damn!) cleaning looked like a lot of hard, dirty work!! On the other hand the wedding weekend in Braidwood must have been lovely. What a pretty town & church. Am taking it the bride's More...

Kate, I loved your Braidwood set. It is a lovely place and you have some great photos. One question though, what is the tartan of the kilt your dad was wearing at the wedding?

Kate, and thank you for visiting my page and all the great comments you left behind. I only make Emily's costumes when it comes to her ballet, (thank goodness). However I do make all the props that we use at our end of year concert.

Oh Kate, forgot to ask, the photo you currently have displayed "sunset in Braidwood", would you mind if I try and animate that, the way I have with a few of Ian's Pictures?

Hi Kate,
Thanks for visiting my page and making comments on my photos. Colleen isn't a very common name these days so I suspect your sister is near to my age. Does she live in Sydney?

Hi Kate, thanks for the party. Sorry I missed it!!! We had to wait nine and a half hours in Sydney before we could fly home to Dubbo but unfortunately I couldn't get on the internet (I tried) and I couldn't ring you either as my phone had run out of battery power as I couldn't charge it in Bangkok as I didn't have a power point adaptor for Asia. Sorry.

Hi Kate,
I thought I would be a similar vintage to your sister. I turned 51 in February this year. I don't have any siblings but my husband has 2 sisters and a brother - all older than him. He turns 49 tomorrow. I have just come back from putting on morning tea for him at his office - he is More...

In 1999, I took my dream vacation to NZ in February. Spent 3 days in Auckland than tourned the North Island and then on down to the South Island, ending up in Christchurch for a couple of days before flying back to Auckland and LA (with 3 day layover - to visit parents)/San Fran/Home.

Best wishes to your parent's on their Anniversary.


ps Did Maureen appreciate her party...I certainly did!

Soory Kate, I was confused. In my head I knew you and Maureen are sisters, just got it all mixed up. Anyway, hope your parents have a great time celebrating. My mum's still not well and causing me great heartache, just wish she would drop her stubborness and get down here!!

Kate, I came to see the cake. It's beautiful! I've seen nothing like it at weddings here. Is the plaid under the cake significant?
(By the way... You have a lovely page!)

Hi Kate, I wanted to thank you personally for your birthday greeting. I just joined, but have enjoyed this site for many years. It is the best!!! Actually, my birthday isn't until November 4th. I'm not sure where Gath got April 10th, but it made for a very special day. The timing couldn't have More...

Kate, almost!!! I was more concerned with my poor monitor! Yummy cake, too good to ignore! Your fault for the slobber all over the monitor!

Thanks for stopping by, I'll trade you a pie for some of that cake.

I found it interesting that Gold was discovered in 1851 in Braidwood. Same year Gold was discovered in Jacksonville. The population during the height of the Gold Rush was 3000. We have less than that now. Many left More...

Hello Kate!
I don't believe that I have visited your site before. Your wedding dress is just beautiful, my sister made her wedding dress also along with my maid of honor dress so I can appreciate the amount of time (and love) that undoubtedly went into it. And my goodness about your BIL, he More...

Kate - that looks like my dog. While I was in Christchurch, I found out that they were having a Choir Reherasal that evening, so I went to hear the Organ played. The choir sang one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard, it had an Irish lilt to it. I asked the organist what it was. I do More...

Kate - I thought that you may be interested in some trivia about one of the photos you left a comment on. The "Nunan House" was on the market for some time, then a local won the lottery and purchased it and has converted it into a B&B. This was the third multi-million dollar lottery More...

From the bottom of my heart, I thank you.

Kate, Cathy/Southern Ontario was asking about snorkelling in Fiji on today's 'Hard' Sudoku page and I referred her to you because of your underwater photo which appeared on Kids Sudoku 6x6 Easy today.

Hi Kate - I wanted to thank you for all of the info you gave me on Vegemite! I shared it with my aunt this evening. (My mom and dad tried it also when I received it from Kathy/Valrico.) We have never seen anything like it here in the states. It is different and it is fun to try new things! I More...

Hi Kate!
Thanks for all the wonderful comments on my Egypt pictures. I'm so glad you enjoyed them. It was a terrific trip and meeting Wagdy in Cairo was a highlight. He's a delightful man and is very proud of his country. I'd love to go back!

Hi Gail, Aimee, and Kate

Thank you so much for your kind comments (well, maybe not Gail’s reference to riots). The ‘coming of age’ trips idea came from some older (is that possible?) friends who had done the same thing for their grands.

I really appreciate the offer of More...
