In terms of weather, my favourite winter was in Munich, where temperatures were low enough to dry out the air you never got wet, and if you dressed appropriately for the weather, you did not get cold.

In the south of England, the day after you get snow, as likely as not you will get slush.

There were a few good years of cold winters, like '82, or going back to my childhood, '63; but not many.

I don't like shopping, and I don't like present buying.  The trouble is that for most people, unless you are particularly fortunate and spot something particularly unusual that you think will be just right for someone, but they would not have thought of it for themselves; you are buying for them something which if they would have wanted they would have bought for themselves.  Usually, when I give a present, I am absolutely terrified that I have misjudged what I have bought, and they really do not like or want it.  I know that I am equally impossible to buy presents for, and generally ask people not to buy me presents.

In general, I'd much rather buy presents opportunistically, rather than occasionally in other words, I'd rather if I happen to see something by chance that I think would make a good present for someone, to buy it even if there is no occasion to buy it; rather than worry throughout the Christmas period (or around their birthday) that I cannot find anything appropriate for the occasion and the recipient.

Thats a good policy and one I use all year round. I love to buy presents for people and I probably have bought the wrong things on occasion, but for the most part, I have usually done ok!But it is so fun to think about something cool that the person would like, cosidering their interests ect. I like to really think about it real good before I go hunting for the perfect gift!

I have never been in romantic love, I've had a few crushes and girlfriends but none I could truly say I loved.

Everyone say awwww.

Once I experience it I will judge if I want to work out why it happens lol.

Loretta, I don't know what to think anymore! You trust someone with everything you have you give them everything you are and they just use you and hurt you! Why do people do that, Am I just naive, isn't anything precious anymore? Doesn't loving someone with everything you have count for anything? I'm sorry, I guess I am having a real bad night here!

  Did you get my email, The cute little hippo! I sent one to everyone! Was so touching!

Yes, cute pics but may I suggest that as a point of etiquette, when you forward other people's posts, you remove all of the headers.

Everyone receiving these posts is receiving with them a ready made mailing list that would be a gold mine for any spammer.  This is not just you I know it has happened to lots of other people before, where they forward a mail, leaving the original headers; the person they forward it to also forwards it with even more headers attached, and very soon the copy of this email is wondering around the Internet with hundreds of email addresses attached, all waiting to be added to someone's database of email addresses.  The people whose email addresses you are forwarding in that way may not thank you for that.

Hey Steven,

 Please don't be sadder! I have excellent memories of my brother. He may not be around, but he will always live inside of me. That is what is so extrordinary about LOVE!ALL KINDS OF LOVE! He has been been in not so good shape. He has a care provider, but does not keep in touch or allow us knowledge of his whereabouts, He does not have his presence of mind. As a young adult he and his cosin were experimenting with PCP, he got ahold of some bad stuff, It took him away and although he does not use it now, or the last time I seen him, he is pretty much gone, a shell of the wonderful man he was! He loved playing the Guitar and singing, he had 2 Beautiful daughters  one died of sudden infant death syndrome and thats what put him over the edge and he turned to a drug to forget her! Now he has forgotten all of us, but his pain is gone! He is very gentle, and is so sweet. When I found him last timehe was walking on the streetI stopped him to see if I was right. He remembered me anh hugged me, but asked how that very nice lady was that he used to live with, (my mom) I had to tell him she had died and we could not find him as she wished to tell him that she would always love her baby boy! He got sad for a moment and then smiled and said, she was very nice, a good women, she was my friend, you know that Karen she was a good friend! I went with him home that day as he wanted to play me some music, he introduced me to his caregiver who had no clue he had family locally! He told me that timmy J. was on medication for for a physcological disorder! I said good bye many hours later and when I went back to visit him the man had taken him and moved away. The phone number was no longer in service and he never called us to let us know where they went! I guess this year is 12 years ago. I have gret memories of him and will always love him. He was a fragile sensitive soul and could not handle what life had given him and he was lost in another world! A world that we will never really understand!!

George, when I forward, I thought about that, how do I remove the old names?

Karen

Chocolate, where's that chocolate, people, I don't care which type  milk, plain (dark) filled or unfilled, pralines, anything, but not white.
Yes I'm upset, and when this this Greek temperament is fired up then I want chocolate and lots of it.

Love you lots

Helena   xxxx
