My Blog on beginner quilting. But many other subjects are covered. It is my space to comment on things going on in my life and reflects my opinion only. As a friend of mine says: It's mine and I will write what I want in it. As the title says, I would rather be quilting... But sometimes other stuff tends to come up and get in the way.

JAJ and other things
I have a friend, well she is an email friend. We only met once in person
and that was briefly, but we have (over the last few years) become friends through emails. Read more
Please note: this entry is a “catch up” entry, written in retrospect, about what was happening at the time (it covers the time period, but was written in November).

Now I can start fixing the website! It’s a lot of work and I know it will be worth it.
I started this entry way back in June, thinking I was in Group 2 of the BB2 rollout. It took over a month for the SBI tech team to “migrate” the thousands of web sites in Group 2 – those lucky buggers!

Yesterday, I wrote that John Lennon said something when I should have used the word “wrote”. In being curious about something credited about the line – it was attributed to the song “Beautiful Boy” – so I got out my DVD of “Mr. Holland’s Opus” because I remembered it was featured in the movie.

John Lennon once said “Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.” Was he ever correct! Or in my case Life Just Happened. Period.
It wasn’t what I had planned, or for that matter, it wasn’t what I wanted to be doing at this stage of my life. When I started this website, I had lots of plans for it. But funds ran low and I was forced to get a job cleaning offices
