Hey TG,

Nice site. I enjoy reading your posts. Keep up the good work.

Make you a deal, TG: Switch "Sopranos" to "Family Guy", and you got your post. I never watch Tony, but almost blew $100 today just to see Seth MacFarlane speak.

I sent an e-mail to you, but it was returned, so I thought I would catch you here. I'm sorry if this is not okay for a blog site (I'm so not familiar with them). If you want (after you are more settled--I can only imagine) give me a call. I'd really like to see you. Thanks, Tara

I'd like to hear about the weird foods YOU had to learn to love!

He He... I didn't read carefully at first and actually went to Yellow Porch looking for the blog about "Babywise recalled"!

Alright, Tulip Girl. I'll write that post. I need to do something a little less serious than my recent posting.

But I was wondering, do you really like tulips or are you a five point calvinist in disguise? When I first started reading your blog, I just thought of you as a flower loving person, but recently I realized that "tulip" is an acronym for

T-otal depravity
U-nconditional election
L-imited atonement
I-rresistable grace
P-erseverence of the saints

Are you sending subliminal Calvinistic messages through your blog?

DB, yup, you've got it! *grin*

Elizabeth, Ahh! I wish.

Tara! I'm so glad you wrote me! The last e-mail I rec'd from you is on our computer, which still has a European power pack. (Using my brother-in-laws's. . .) Now that we have a van, a place to live and things are getting closer to "normal," I'd love to see when we could meet up. I remember our oldest boys "playing" together. (Btw, I saved your phone number, but took deleted it from your post--just for privacy's sake.)

Jay, I've never seen that show. But when I have watched Tony and his Family, I've thought--ahhh, now there is where he screws up. Or, yup--he really is doing a good job there. . .

Sparrow, to be honest, I'm pretty lousy at the eating-weird-foods thing. I never did take a bite of the cold-jellied-meat-salad that is popular in Ukraine. Once I fell asleep when we were guests in someone's home. I think it was on a subconscious level, a coping mechanism to avoid weird foods.

Julianne, thank you for the kind words. *Grin*

I want to see triplets for Jodi too! She might think she's going crazy that way though. But, I truly believe the Lord has something very special in store for her, Steve and L.T.

Aren't you jealous though. I'm on the email update list when they travel. 5 years of prayers and she finally gets to be a mother!

It was a good post, too, DB!

I'll work on the toddler lessons. Right now I'm working on, "How to teach both Greek and Latin to 4th graders"

LOL! Well, I will have to see if inspiration will strike me...I am on call right now for two doula births, maybe one of them will inspire me.

Ok, what's the joke!? I received the weirdest e-mail today and now I think I understand why! I got an email from someone who did a google search for "Ukraine triplets" and ended up at my site and wanted to know why. I think this person is actually wanting to adopt triplet girls from Ukraine.

Do you know something I don't know!?!

Another note, I tried the "cold-jellied-meat" stuff. It was offered to me in 1992 in Latvia. They called it Schproti and I think it was a fish in the gelatin stuff. What I remember is that they considered it a treat and couldn't believe I didn't like it. It was truly one of the grossest things! But then, they thought peanut butter was foul beyond belief.

Other than Schproti, I love Russian and Ukrainian food, though I've probably not had as much as Tulipgirl.
