            Is that for just BobD or for everyone?

            Bob, have you mailed out last year's yet?

            I don't think I'll make it if was two months ago. Guess I best get busy, busy, busy. Even the folks in Canada will take a bit to get there.

                I've got them all cut already, so I've got to put some finish on them, and I'll send them all out en-masse!

                No fear needed!

                  Now you guys got me nervous........when should I be sending these out ?
                  most are cut, but I got to take time out for this silly honeymoon thing

                  Any suggestions on method of shipment ? I sent a letter to Barry once, but other than that I'm a rookie when it comes to long-distance mailing

                    I think most of the references were to the fact that I still haven't sent out last year's ornaments <GRIN>

                      Don't panic, if you get them in the mail by Dec. 1st everyone should get them including New Zealand.

                        Got mine as well. Thanks. They're cut just need to be finished. So what is the best finish to use for the training wheels?

                          An economy shipped package to New Zealand can take from 4 to 6 weeks. I just mailed a package there earlier this week. If you spend a couple dollars, you can go with the quicker ship methods, which also helps reduce the chances of breakage.I plan on sending out shortly after Thanksgiving, unless someone really really wants it sooner. Last year, because of fragilities, I wrapped mine inside two layers of BB ply, because any amount of bending it had, would have made it into designer toothpicks.I do think one person did recieve one from me that got broken in shipping regardless of my efforts to protect it.I think most were sent in bubble envelopes with a piece of stiff cardboard protecting it if my memory is still working. This years wont be quite so fragile from me , so I dont think they should be a problem.Also... when shipping to NZ (I think Canada too)you will fill out a customs form, and its best to mark it as no value, or very little value , and tag it as 'gift', or 'Christmas ornament'.Only we will know the ornament is truly priceless! Take it to your post office and they can help with the customs form, thats what we pay them for! This chart is robbed off of www.usps.com site. dale

                              Thanks Dale, for the information on mailing our ornaments, it will be very helpful when the time comes. I better re-think my time line, cause I'm not as rich as minnesota scroller and can't send mine Global Express.
                              I am very excited and can't wait till the ornaments start to arrive, so mail mine tomorrow, will ya Dale!

                                Norma and I are still growing into our 'new' home but are really happy that we got this work done and everyone who has seen the transformation have been wowed.

                                Hi guys - it seems like I am back in business. The offending 'F' key seemed to lack sufficient travel to push down on the main board so I stuck a thin sliver of plastic under it with super glue and that seems to have solved the problem.

                                WOW! I really like your taste in doors etc. I have have always leaned towards contemporary / modern. But our house is a small cape and that style would not suit it. Since we are both Geminis we have 4 people and our house is very eclectic. Each room has a bit of different style.
