About This Club

Builders, Singers, and Gardeners, all are welcome!
  1. What's new in this club
  2. How is everybody doing? Any fresh gardens growing? I only have a very small one going this year. Just a couple tomatoes, a zucchini and some sort of Japanese cucumber. It has been kind of a chilly Spring, but the zucchini is finally taking off. I'll take some pics today.
  3. Hope you are getting the responses you need. Took the survey - not painful at all! 🙂 Good luck with your project!
  4. Hello to everyone! My name is Jenny but at Dragonmount I was known as Jaydena McKanthur and was Captain General on both sides of DM for 8+ years. Plus in the Ogier, Kin, Aiel, etc. As the wheel turned I ended up leaving the site for various reasons. This site was a huge part of my life for many years, in fact I joined my first Wheel of Time site (Dragonmount) in 1998. When I sat down to decide on the topic of my Senior Capstone project (a requirement for my Bachelors degree) I knew immediately what I wanted to do. Fandoms and the support that one can find from belonging to one is a subject I have experienced personally. For my research study I have created a survey that I would very much appreciate anyone your assistance with. The survey should take 10-70 minutes depending how in-depth you are with the answers. Your responses are completely protected and no identifying information will be included in the survey. Thank you so much for your help on this!! https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1...tHBIywxEUupLE0qcaXzMyMYw/viewform?usp=sf_link Go with the Light, Jaydena
  5. Wishing everyone a Safe and Happy Holiday Season!
  6. Hope the tea was soothing! Time is passing so quickly can't believe that it has been two weeks since I started this thread. Hasty world outside! How is everyone doing? Staying safe? We've been very busy at work! I've been working day and night for months now - finally hired a helper last week, so maybe I can finally slow down and enjoy some tea myself.
  7. Hello! Nice to meet ya! Doing well, can't complain, wouldn't want to 🙂 Enjoying a nice tea at the moment. Hope you well
  8. And hello to all of our old members! Hope all is well with everyone! How is everyone doing? Keeping safe and busy?
  9. Looking good! I went out to take some pics, but all I saw were weeds. Guess my little green houses were too hot for use during the summertime. Oh well. My other little garden is going strong though with daily batches of tomatoes coming off. And it looks like we have enough for another batch of salsa as well. I'll try to take some pics of that one soon.
  10. Looks good. Well done Ryrin. Are the pale green ones at the back some kind of pepper?
  11. Glad to hear about our food crop of tomatoes Jaim. They are always a favourite food of mine. But the air sounds shocking. Hope it improves soon.
  12. Tomatoes went nuts with all of this hot weather we've been having in SoCal. We made a batch of salsa with a basket full last week. Turned out pretty tasty. Other plants not doing so well, but hopefully will recover after I repaired a major leak in the irrigation system. The weather has cooled down quite a bit this week with all of the smoke in the air (a bit of a "nuclear winter" going on), but I could do too much as the air quality was so poor. Maybe things will settle down this coming week and I can get back out there.
  13. We have a great garden. I’ll need to post some pics.
  14. Hi Jaim. How is your summer planting growing? Everthing should have grown quite a bit by now. We tried a few herb pots, but only the thyme has survived. The corriander wilted and died almost straight away. The basil, rosemary all got some kind of milldew which I couldn't get rid of. (One of the stalks of the basil recovered and we harvested that one.)
  15. Hope you are all still well? How has everyone been affected? I am still well. But Corona virus turned things upside down at my parents house with my step sister getting it and her "Mom" also getting it and passing away. My parents didn't get it fortunately, but I haven't seen them for months because the're scared of catching it. I'm still working from home most days as well. Almost Everyone else is back full time, but they still let me work from home most days becaus I'm at higher risk.
  16. Well, my winter greenhouses didn't turn out all that great. Ended with only one zucchini and a handful of tomatoes. I'll have to rethink things for next winter, but for now it is time for summertime planting. Putting in tomatoes, zucchini, peppers and what ever catches my eye. I'll post some pics when I'm done. How is everyone else doing?
  17. Sometimes I wish we could spread the peace of the stedding around the world. Hopefully, things will change and things will get better. Hopefully! Stay safe everyone!
  18. Another trip to Target this week. Still a lot of empty shelves, but I was able to get a bottle of isopropyl alcohol for the first time in what seems like months, also some paper towels, both of which I use quite a bit at work. I got pretty sick last week, but although I had a lot of the symptoms , I had no respiratory problems, so I'm chalking it up to food poisoning. My sister-in-law is a elementary teacher in San Diego. They have been video teaching for a while now. I guess it is going smoothly now, but at first she needed her kid's help in even getting the connection to work. My son's girlfriend has been taking her finals at his place while he's at work as it is much quieter than her house. And I just got a notice from my kid's old college stating the tuition fees are not refundable! My kids all graduated years ago, but still good to know, I guess 🤔
  19. I'm a teacher and in my country elementary school is still open. So I'm still working as usual. I had to stay at home for three weeks since I was coughing. You are not allowed to go to work when you have any sign of sickness. I was feeling well for the most time. The last days I was in contact with my class in a video chat and that was fun to try out. Did I have corona? Who knows? They are only testing medical staff so far. What I know is that corona has been widely spread in the part of the country were I live. Hopefully I and my family is immune now but we don't know. It was almost impossible to find toilet paper the first weeks but now it's back to normal. The hardest thing so far is not seeing my grandparents. People over 70 and people that are in high risk groups are not supposed to meet people. I know that my grandmother is feeling alone. I call her more than I usually do. My boyfriend works at concerts and he had a lot of work coming up this spring. But then it was decided that there should be no gatherings of more than 50 people so all concerts were cancelled. We will survive but the income we had looked forward to disappeared. 😞
  20. Not too affected by the stay home directives myself as my business is classified as "essential" and "critical". In fact, I have to report to the state if I can't come in to work. I did have to go to Target for supplies yesterday. What a mess there. Besides remodeling, they are not allowed to sell most things "in store" so they have the aisles taped off. Half of the items on my list were available though limited quantities, except no limit on water, while the other half were empty shelves or in the forbidden zone. Most people were wearing face masks and practicing social distancing, which was good. Target also had extra helpers on hand to help people like me find stuff which was helpful (plus they gave me a $5 off coupon!), so overall, I was OK with my journey to the store yesterday. Other than that, it has been just home and work. My local area is starting to ease off some of the restrictions like opening the parks and beaches, so maybe things are getting better - though I feel this is far from over.
  21. Hi. Well we've been under a lockdown for just over 3 weeks now. (I go downstairs every couple of days to throw out the rubbish. Otherwise only once been out of our apartment for some groceries). At least I can work from home. (Lots of people I know can't. Some are still getting paid and some not) Still healthy though.
  22. Why not? Andy Serkis is pretty good actor. He voiced Caesar perfectly in War for the Planet of the Apes. I do not really like this film, but Caesar had a good voice. I watched this film with my friend from papersowl.com. We went to the cinema for this movie instead of doing homework that evening. All evening we discussed how bad he is.
  23. 15 minutes at the DMV and I was able to renew my driver's license and get a Real ID - it was basically deserted - kind of scary actually, but the people there were upbeat and friendly. Had to go to the local Kaiser for blood work - also deserted, but prepping for an onslaught. Work is slowing down, but still open. I was asked by the state how long I was keeping the doors open and I replied as long as I can, (I have a small environmental testing lab that conducts regulatory required testing). We'll see. Anyone else affected yet? Hope everyone is OK.
