 Welcome to my page




Strike up a conversation, sit and stay a spell. 

Leave me a post, present, prayer, poem or puzzle (or something that doesn't start with "p"). LOL 

Take away a thought, a laugh or a bite to eat.

(I recommend the plum pierogi or the goats milk cheese).

Hi Plum, I see by your post on easy that you are back online, rejoicing with you! Did you end up getting a Facebook page in the end? If you did, would love to be added as your friend, but don't know how to find you. If you look for me, my profile photo is one of the shocking pics of me in my sudoku gallery!

Hello Plum, no credit to be had. I found the thought and passed it on. Most of them, as I am sure you are aware, are others thoughts. I'm constantly trawling the sites for them. Have I got a life? probably not. Nice to see you back on the site. I did enjoy your Jane Austin reviews, first time for ages there was something interesting and enjoyable on the pages x Take care x

Oh Plum, am I getting that old??? But getting there with friends makes the adventure "funner"!!! And doing mischievously even better! The yerba mate is helping! Teas are a main stay in my day! A quick picker upper to ahhhh, relaxing! Having been treating my colleagues as well. Get them addicted too!

Happy Sudokuversary Plum!

Hi Plum - my deepest apologies for leaving you out of my list in that post to Ian. I quickly ran through the posts to see who was the most recent new member - your name was amongst the the list - in my head (why don't I learn to write things down?) and when I typed the post, I had a feeling I had More...

Thanks for your anniversary wishes, Plum. You made me feel all warm and fuzzy ... until I stumbled across your comments on Hard! Well! I guess I get what I deserve ...

Plum, yes, I do recall our conversations about college. It is so hard for me and my daughter to believe that she has already finished her first year. She has changed her major from physical therapy to art education and she is absolutely loving it - it is so, so wonderful to see her so happy. I More...

Plum, there are over 200 silver sugar tongs on eBay right now.

My grandmother was Janet Selkirk and the family tradition was that we were descended fron AS. I've never really been interested in family geneology so I don't know whether this means a direct descendent or whether from a brother or other relation of AS
I seriously doubt that the artifact is More...

Oh, yeah. I nearly said that we need more Darwin Award winners.

Plum, I know about today's photo on easy - it's mine and is looking straight up the middle of the Eiffel Tower. I have no idea why there was no comment, there definitely was one when I submitted it around 2 years ago!
03/Jul/09 8:20 PM
Plum, many thanks for your birthday greetings, it was nice that you remembered.
I hope everything is going well for you.
03/Jul/09 10:12 PM
Greg suggested that you might like this for your very own. He is SUCH a sensitive guy
After all, I did find it just for you. So, I come bearing gifts for our own MVP!

Hi Plum! Wrote to Jamie of my order and how delighted I was. But today I'm going to try it iced. After 3 weeks in the south (NC) I've developed a taste for iced tea! You were right those bags are humongous, it's going to take me quite a while to go through them! I put two in the freezer where I put my other teas. Will that be ok for them?
23/Jul/09 12:12 AM
To the tune of The Okey-Kokey

You put the number one in
you take the number two out
in out in out
then you rub the numbers out
you do the sudoku-kokey and you start again
thats what sudokus all about

oooh oh sudoku kokey
ooh oh sudoku kokey
oooh oh sudoku kokey
eyes down concentrate rah rah rah

Definitely Two syllables Plum:
Like "may-en"(rather like the way you pronounce the first two syllables of mayonnaise)
23/Jul/09 8:21 AM
Plum, thanks so very much for stopping by with your birthday wishes and blessings. I'll keep you and yours in my prayers today as I celebrate! Drop by anytime, and have a great weekend!

Hi Plum, the 'Art?' on hard 24 july, is in Melbourne (aus), south bank along the Yarra river
04/Aug/09 5:05 PM
Howdy, Plum! Just want you to know I’m going to be in Grand Junction (near South Haven), Michigan from Sunday, September 13 through Wednesday morning, September 16. Would love to get together with as many of you Michiganders as possible while I’m there. Maybe lunch on Monday or Tuesday? I’ll More...
17/Aug/09 12:33 AM
Hi Plum.... I'm gonna see if I can get the time to come. Michigan is a lot closer than Florida. I'd love to spend more time with Jane and Debby, and make new friends. Consider me a slight possible.
22/Aug/09 12:15 PM
Can't make it. Scheduling conflict. Drat.
23/Aug/09 3:57 PM
Thanks Plum - that's actually not a bad price Australia to US (return, I presume), not that I'd really be able to come (YET) but I suppose it was on one of those budget, take-your-life-in your-hands airlines. Hope the gathering or JaneJam goes well for you all.
26/Aug/09 7:38 AM
Hi Plum, It is still just the 4 of us. I haven't heard from any one else.
01/Sep/09 7:37 AM
Dear Plum.


For your lovly wishes of my birthday.
01/Sep/09 2:40 PM
hehehe.. did have a chuckle or two, with your broken glass, through out all the sudoku puzzels pages today.
04/Sep/09 11:06 AM
Hi Plum, we, too, are going to try to get there around 4:00 p.m. I am so excited!! See you in a week!
05/Sep/09 5:14 AM
Looking forward to Clara's.
Nice to hear about K'zoo! Lived there for 16 years before moving to SE Michigan.
See you soon!
05/Sep/09 12:41 PM
Plum, does that make us both some kind of sicko?
I must say though, BBQ sauce wasn't my first thought, but it is the sauce I always fall back on when I am in a quandary!
06/Sep/09 10:34 AM
Thank you Plum for your birthday wishes, I had a great day and this year is going to be better.
14/Sep/09 12:03 PM
It was great meeting you (and 'middle Plum') in person yesterday! Thank you again for the tea. Hope to try it this afternoon at tea time!

Hi Plum,

I posted this comment in today's puzzle but just realised you might not go back to read later comments.

"You can see the caption again by clicking on the link just above the puzzle called "Play this pic as a Jigsaw". Then look at the thumbnail pic in the left column - the caption is right underneath it."

Hi, Plum! I saw your note on "easy" this morning and am just now getting around to answering. I've been running around all over the place trying to get the household back in order!!! A broken water main in the neighborhood and a flat tire on my bicycle didn't help matters! Anyway, I More...
23/Sep/09 11:47 AM
Hi Plum. Decided to sneak over to your page to tell you it was me who posted the kenken site. I'm glad you're enjoying it. If I posted this on Easy then it would be known that I am another of the many lurkers. Reading & not writing leaves me more time for other things which I enjoy more. I More...

Hi Plum
It sounds like you have had a run of not being on top of your game. Hope you feel better soon. There are many of us who really enjoy your posts and miss your cheery presence. Hope you feel better soon.
13/Oct/09 6:56 AM
Feel better soon, Plum!
15/Oct/09 6:18 AM
Well, Plum, you sound a lot cheerier than you have been. It's amazing how being positive makes us feel better! I haven't been unwell, but just always seem to be tired - I guess I am doing more now and working harder than I ever have! Thyere rarely seems to be me time - need to address that. More...

Hi Plum

I read, with interest, your comment today about girls (and women) choosing / wanting the beautiful role in plays etc - wanting the (I suppose) confirmation that they are themselves beautiful. What do you make of my choice of "character"?
25/Oct/09 7:30 PM
Plum, I want one of those too! Don't youo just hate the kitchen mess!!! I've made a really big mistake with the one I've purchased - my dishes don't fit in it properly, all the glasses overbalance, it takes forever to work and by the time you get stuff clean enough to put it in to it, you may as More...
