This year I finally have time to dig into this site – looks like it could offer some neat ideas, uses and friends. Thank you.
Thank you so much. I was beginning to get very frustrated as I’m not a techy computer person.
Thanks for walking me through this part, still a little unsure, but feeling better about things. This is my first site to join, so I have no experience at this at all! Wish me luck!!
Theres ALOT to take in. Right now it’s a bit overwhelming, but I’m hanging in there. I think being new at this and never having joined a site before, I’m more leery of making a mistake and thats making me feel overwhelmed.
But getting more relaxed the more I look around.
So much to read and absorb. Fabulous!
This is a very good webpage to learn how to do things that you have always wanted to do. The designs and the way things are arranged is eye catching and you want to look at it more and more. The recipes are something I look forward to.
Thank you for putting this all together.
Saw the link on FB. I like new ideas, cheaper ways to live, good recipes. Thanks

I can’t wait to try some of the recipes. My granddaughter got a girl scout cookies oven for Christmas. I was wondering if the recipes for the easy bake oven would work in it?
Does anyone know?
