Welcome, Diane.  Ms. T is right.  This forum is addictive.  However; we will start offering classes to fight that addiction soon.  (I'm just kidding).

To answer Mom70X7's question...Are all addictions bad?  No.  Addict can mean to devote or surrender.  However; in today's society, what comes to mind when someone says something about addiction?  One thinks of a compulsion or obsession that is harmful to self.

Welcome to you Diane Amberg.

so far today I did go to church and I did ride around looking at the flooding.
Also walked the dog and the rest of the day I have sat here.

I did do a couple of my crossword games and I am going to do a jigsaw in a little bit.
but,can't seem to get off of this site.

I think I am very glad there isn't a chat room..............I would never shut down........LOL.......now don't tell me there (is) a chat room.......
Close enough. Glad you are here Diane..........

OH, is there a spell check on this letter head.........some days I need the help.....when fingers/mouth goes faster than the brain.
Hugs to all and God bless
Judy
Today, I want to make a difference.
Here I am Lord, use me!

Yep.  I'm addicted to spelling things right.  Sorry about that.

No spell check, but we won't say very much.  Most of the time things are typo's anyway, Judy.
