  1. September 7 - 2:42 A.M Good Luck Karri and congratulations!!
  2. That is sooo cool!!! I didn't even notice until I saw your post. Way to go VANF!!! So where's the party gonna be? Can I come?? Seriously though with VANF being the great place it is, I am not the least bit surprised at the growth it has experienced. On that note I would just like to send out a great big to all of you for making this forum the wonderful place it is, it wouldn't have been such a huge success if it weren't for all of your support, warmth and encouragement. You are all the driving force behind this great and addictive place and I truly give you all the credit for making me a loyal VANF member!! I would also like to start a standing ovation for Tawnya, our dedicated den mother, for bringing us all together and for giving us the opportunities that have been made available to us through the forum. Thank you all and congratulations to all your successes!!
  3. MMMM, Cornish hens....have never tasted that but it sounds delicious!! Well things have settled down in my house for now, the hunt is over and done with and my little ones currently have chocolate mustaches! Since my hubby is european our menu will be a bit different. We are having Cheese Fundue for dinner which will be followed by a chocolate fondue with a variety of fruits for dipping. Hmm, now that I think about it, I should have told hubby to save $$ on the special dipping chocolate and confiscated the kids chocolate bunnies, wonder what they would say if we started throwing their stash into the pot?? We will also be painting some more eggs since the kids LOVE that!! And then we will all sit before supper and have our Easter talk, which is when we all talk about Jesus and how/why he died for our sins. We always try to remind the kiddies about the real stories behind Easter and Christmas and why they should be celebrated and that the real gift is in the giving and not the recieving. Anyway I truly wish you all a very happy and blessed Easter!!!
  4. I agree that the site looks great, easy to navigate and quick load up time for dial up users. I did notice though that there is a huge space on the right hand side of the page, I am using IE and I don't know if anyone else had noticed this. Otherwise you ladies have done a wonderful job on it. Congratulations Denise, you're well on your way now!!!
  5. There you go again providing us with even more valuable information!!! Don't you ever stop?? I honestly don't know how you do it all!! O.K, I am going to be really honest here. I really, truly admire and respect you, you are one hell of a woman. To simply state it like one of my children would, "when I grow up, I want to be just like you Den Mommy!!" My thumbs up to all your efforts to keep us "den-lings" educated, informed and up to date!! Three cheers for Tawnya!!
  6. That is so funny!! I am also a murderer of sea monkeys! I bought my 7 yr old son a sea monky set last fall and we faithfully watched them grow...for about 2 weeks. Then came the day my 1 yr old daughter tried climbing up onto the counter to play with the ever fascinating WATER! In my haste to save the lives of my sons dear (20 or so) "pets", I grabbed the container only to have it slip out of my hands....and with a loud "sploosh", I proceeded to pour them out all over my kitchen floor!! Suffice it to say that everytime my son didn't get what he wanted from that day on, he never forgot to remind about my "killing spree"..... AAH, the power of guilt trips.........NOT!!!
  7. I was wondering what (if any) advice or reviews anyone can give me on this? How useful is Seamonkey to you and would you recommend it to others? Thanx a bunch!!
  8. Wow, cool deal!! What would you charge to make the changes "take" in real life??? Hmmm, the overhaul on my appearance might cost more than I could ever afford. Oh well, if you can do that for me I promise to be your slave forever!!
  9. I just want to wish JoBeth a very Hope your day is a great one!!!
  10. A man walked into a supermarket with his zipper down. A lady cashier walked up to him and said, "Your barracks door is open." Not a phrase that men normally use, he went on his way looking a bit puzzled. When he was about done shopping, a man came up and said, "Your fly is open." He zipped up and finished his shopping. At the checkout, he intentionally got in the line where the lady was that told him about his "barracks door." He was planning to have a little fun with her, so when he reached the counter he said, "When you saw my barracks door open, did you see a Marine standing in there at attention?" The lady (naturally smarter than the man) thought for a moment and said, "No, no I didn't. All I saw was a disabled veteran sitting on a couple of old duffel bags!
  11. I just saw this post and just had to put my 2 cents in. I was called to jury duty once approximately 4yrs ago and I must admit I was horrified at the prospect!! It was a murder trial which included 2 well known citizens in our area and both of whom had very respected practices. EVERYONE was following this case and it was front page news, I was also of course curious to see how things would turn out but I never dreamt I would get a front row seat!! Coming from a relatively small town, there were of course many relatives, friends and aqcuaintances who were deeply affected by it all from both sides and I did not want get THAT involved. Word gets around quickly in small towns and I had no doubts that it would one day be discovered that I was part of the panel. I did not want to take that chance. I also did not want to have to judge someone else as this is something that our parents taught us and I did not want to have that burden on my shoulders. I recieved a subpeona and everything, was supposed to be put into a motel room for the duration of the trial and was not to have any contact with anyone. How could I leave my babies for an specified amount of time?? I was so worried about the whole deal that I became totally stressed out and ended up getting really sick. Had pneumonia, bronchitis and a lung infection all at once which required hospitalization, which in the end saved me from serving at all!!! Anyway, I guess I am one of those people who would much rather follow a trial from afar than from a front row seat!
  12. Written by Kids HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHO TO MARRY? You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming. -- Alan, age 10 No person really decides before they grow up who they're going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you're stuck with. -- Kristen, age 10 WHAT IS THE RIGHT AGE TO GET MARRIED? Twenty-three is the best age because you know the person FOREVER by then. -- Camille, age 10 No age is good to get married at. You got to be a fool to get married. Freddie, age 6 (very wise for his age) HOW CAN A STRANGER TELL IF TWO PEOPLE ARE MARRIED? You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids. -- Derrick, age 8 WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR MOM AND DAD HAVE IN COMMON? Both don't want any more kids. -- Lori, age 8 WHAT DO MOST PEOPLE DO ON A DATE? Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough. ;-- Lynnette, age 8 (isn't she a treasure) On the first date, they just tell each other lies and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date. -- Martin, age 10 WHAT WOULD YOU DO ON A FIRST DATE THAT WAS TURNING SOUR? I'd run home and play dead. The next day I would call all the newspapers and make sure they wrote about me in all the dead columns - Craig, age 9 WHEN IS IT OKAY TO KISS SOMEONE? When they're rich. -- Pam, age 7 The law says you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn't want to mess with that. - - Curt , age 7 The rule goes like this: If you kiss someone, then you should marry them and have kids with them. It's the right thing to do. -- Howard, age 8 IS IT BETTER TO BE SINGLE OR MARRIED? It's better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them. -- Anita, age 9 (bless you child) HOW WOULD THE WORLD BE DIFFERENT IF PEOPLE DIDN'T GET MARRIED? There sure would be a lot of kids to explain, wouldn't there? -- Kelvin, age 8 And the #1 Favorite is........ HOW WOULD YOU MAKE A MARRIAGE WORK? Tell your wife that she looks pretty, even if she looks like a truck. -- Ricky, age 10

  14. Hi all, I have been "away" for the last 4 days, I have been in our local hospital trying to support my niece who was in labour for 3 days!! BUT I am so proud to say that my niece had her baby (her first!) on March 24 at 6:19 P.M. A boy named Nicholas Randall who wieghed in at 7lbs 10oz. I am just ecstatic for her and I was so touched when she asked me to be there for her alongside her mother. Of course I took my camera along and I filmed the whole thing, now we can watch the birth over and over again. I am just so happy, excited, in love with him and all the good stuff that comes from a new baby. Don't you just looove the new baby smell? Anyway I just had to share this with you all.... now if I could just find a way to tell the rest of the world..... Cindy
  15. Hi, I just purchased the Logo Creator and I have been sitting here for the last couple of hours playing around with it. It is so much fun to use!! Anyway this is my first try at making my logo, I don't know if I will stay with this one or play around some more (which I probably will) but I was wondering if anyone would care to tell me what you think? Also I have been thinking of getting a new tag line as well and after some research I haven't been able to find this one in use. If anyone has seen this before or know of someone who is already using it please do share! Any opinions on the logo and the tag line? [attachmentid=172] Oops! I attached the wrong one, this is the rough draft. I tweaked it a bit more by removing the shadows and mirror effect and changed the colors so imagine this one only with the adustments. Thanx in advance for your input
