    I know it will be hard for you city folks to imagine but here in the
remote swamp, everybody talks to everybody. We talk to the grocery store
checker and whoever's next in line.  We invite a person in a hurry to come
on ahead while we visit.  We admire the beautiful babies and plan supper
together.  Today's major topic was: what are you feeding your pets since all
of the pet food recalls?  I lost.  The winner was the store's manager.  Her
kitty has expressed a great fondness for pineapple and mayonnaise
sandwiches. I was too tickled to ask if the crusts had to be cut off or not.

Re: OT just QI nonsense
I understand talking to your neighbor perfectly.   Once when my DS had just
started High School he dialed  a wrong number and was on the phone for over
an hour.    It was always someone  who knew you or knew of you or at least
knew all of your relatives.
 You also wave at everyone you meet on the road.

Re: OT just QI nonsense
Like us Vikki and Polly.   Here in the Village everyone knows (or knows of)
everyone else.  Like I always say to DH - you can't go up to the store to
pick up bread (never milk cause it's delivered) without running into
someone.  Never five minutes when an hour of chit chat will do.

And it's always when y'all are wearing your daggiest clothes.  Always.  Yup

I think that's another one of Murphy's Laws!  And the person you run into
has just come from some meeting and she's dressed to the hilt!

Re: OT just QI nonsense
As everyone who knows me can attest, I talk to everyone, everywhere!  Used
to embarass my 2 boys when they were younger.  I find that if you chat with
people, you always have an interesting experience, and it makes waiting a
whole lot better.

Re: OT just QI nonsense
I talk to everybody too.  I had a boss once who actually made that a
negative part of my job evaluation.  She said that I know no strangers and
even talk to people in elevators.  Yes, she actually wrote that elevator
part on the evaluation form!  At the time I was a training coordinator with
a contractor on a state job.

I love it. That is how I grew up. That is funny. My little Chihuahua
will eat anything I eat including grapes.

OT - help with locating a cross stitch pattern
Sorry to be VERY OT, but you all are just the wealth of all knowledge.
After completing a modified version of a wall hanging called Easter
Blessings (well, all the applique is done), I decided to pick up an old
cross stitch pattern I had set down for a few (maybe more than a few) years
called Time and Season by Moira Blackburn.  Now that I have new glasses, I
can see to work on it again.  Well....when I went into the basket I had it
in, I have only half the pattern!!!  I have NO idea where the rest is and I
have a nearly half finished project.  Nordic Needle sells the pattern, but
it is $20 + shipping.  Does anyone know of a group similar to Quilters Flea
Market that would sell / trade this type of thing?  With vet bills this
month, plus the grandbaby's birthday, my anniversary, etc. I just wanted to
find a less expensive way to finish it.  As it is, it is back in the basket.

Thanks for ANY suggestions,

Re: OT - help with locating a cross stitch pattern
Paulette:
I still have quite a few counted cross stitch patterns
from 'back in the day.' I could check for this one, but
need more information. Was your pattern a single one,
or did you cut it from a magazine, or is it in a ccs
book? Details, woman, details!

Pat, the pattern is a single one, not in a book or magazine.  I GREATLY
appreciate your looking.

1) Have you called or written the designer?  Many will replace damaged
patterns: http://www.moirablackburn.com/contact.htm

2) The nice folks over in rec.crafts.textiles.needlework may have more
suggestions.

Kay (ps: I looked at the chart on the designer's website -- very nice!!!)

Re: OT just QI nonsense-Grapes
Welcome dear! Not to be a pain, but when I saw your note about grapes for
your pup, it caused me alarm!! Please verify this information yourself, but
I seem to remember that there is something in grapes (and raisins of
course!) that is harmful to dogs. It's an enzyme or something similar that
builds up over time in their systems and harms some certain organs. Onions
have a similar effect with a different ingredient. I used to live in the
wine country in Central CA and this was quite the topic of conversation for
a while, as several winemakers dogs had developed a fondness for grapes and
many had become ill. Again, I came by this information several years ago, so
please verify yourself, but a little dog would have a harder time with this.
Good luck and welcome to the frame!

Re: OT just QI nonsense-Grapes
I never heard about the grape problem until we got our pup a couple of years
ago.  I used to give our old dog grapes - he loved them, but now they say no
grapes & no raisins, so we abide by the rules.  (When I was a kid, my mom
used to buy See's chocolate & hide it in her closet so we wouldn't eat it -
but - the dog always found it & would eat a whole box of chocolate.  She
lived to be a ripe old age - but we don't give our pup chocolate either.)

Re: OT just QI nonsense-Grapes
I've also heard this, Lorraine, but we had a dog who picked the grapes right
off our vines. She lived to almost 16. Admittedly, she did have pancreatitis
near the end, but I believe that is a problem caused by too much fat in the
diet so wouldn't be related to grapes. Perhaps it's like allergies in
people - they affect some and not others?

Re: OT just QI nonsense-Grapes
I had a cat years ago that used to jump up on the side of
the BBQ and steal fried onions right off the hot plate.  The
onions were probably not too good for him, but that was not
my main concern.  I used to have to lock him out of the
house for 48hours after he ate onions because of the awful
smell, and he would sit on my window sill and howl pitifully
when that happened     lol

Where was your BW!  I nearly choked on Pepsi just now.  
I hope you post that story to the cat NG.  I'm sure it would give
everyone a chuckle
