Really Random Thursday, 3/25/21

First of all, let me thank those of you who wanted the link to The Morning Brew newsletter. I'm slowly getting enough referrals to qualify for the next level of merchandise. :) There are a couple of you who are "no-reply commenters" and thus I have no way of responding back to you. So if you have been wondering why I never reply to your kind comments, it is because of the "no-reply" status. If you are interested in changing your status, here is an instructional link:

So in the "real" March Madness, aka men's college basketball, there have been a lot of upsets. 

In the Greatest Product of All Time version, thanks to the Morning Brew, there were a couple of overwhelming victories in the Elite Eight round. 

Here are the Final Four. And votes are being cast to choose the champion. I'll report next week. Who would you vote for--Microsoft Windows or Google Search? Are you surprised Legos got as far as it did? 

 Last Saturday I was able to sew virtually with my quilting buddies from the annual July retreat. We are hoping to have a retreat in person this coming July. Nothing would make me happier.

Mark's brother, Pete, and wife, Jane, keep us posted with their shenanigans in Idaho. They worked on some amazing snow sculptures this year. I'll see if I can get some pictures of their snow art--they are really outstanding.

I'm more likely to have quilting fabric in my cart than clothes, especially this year given that I hardly wear anything other than yoga pants and a sweatshirt. But nevertheless, I have been known to add just one more item to my cart in order to get the free shipping. Do you do that too?

Happy weekend.

Nice that you had a sew day with your gang. I have not embraced Zoom at all. If you come through Denver in July for your retreat stay with me for a bit and we'll have a mini retreat. Yes to your shipping question . . . too many times.

I might be familiar with that shipping decision. Honestly, if I'm shoving a pile of money in your direction and your only way to get that money is to deliver the product free? Suck it up and eat my shipping.

Good to see you have a "pre-retreat" gathering with your pals. My local sewing buddies and I are just waiting for the nicer weather to allow us to sew outside. Does that sound crazy? Maybe it is.

I'm glad for you to get to "retreat" with your friends. Even via Zoom, it's better than not meeting at all. Also, I know what you mean about having people comment on your blog who are "no-reply commenters." I always go back to the post and reply to them publicly, but I wonder if they ever see what I say back to them. One nice lady recently asked for a recipe. I'd be glad to share it, but how does one do that?! I find it extremely frustrating. Now that I'm vaccinated, I've been getting out a little more for shopping. One of the first places I visited was an "unmentionables" store. Ahh. So much better!

I know a lot of people are enjoying their zoom experiences. I’m hoping you can see them in person in July.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for your retreat this summer, given the surge of covid up there (but it should all be over with by the time you arrive). Fun to Zoom with them!
