@SusanTuttle1 @ Gwen  If I could have lived where you are, I would not have left CA.  You are so favored in Los Osos, I bet the earthquake did not even reach you this morning. I lived through too many of those with the Sylmar quake being the scariest.  I am envious of your spring flowers (traitors all!)  Enjoy.

@condawgdeuce  instrs. called for attachments no larger than 24 MB - m is for mega = million - So check your writing sample - which may be (depending on size of doc) measured in KB  -  K is for Kilo = 1,000. 


So if you, like me, became a writer because you had a math teacher tell you he hoped you had other talents "because math is not one of them", you'll have to do the math.  Good luck

@DenisePikolycky @ Gwen  reminds me of the winter we stacked 5 cords of firewood on the other side of the barn! After 4' of snow the wood racks off the back deck fell empty - there we were - digging out to the road - then down the road to the stacked wood bringing it back to the house sled by sled - We have much in common.  :)

Well, here's an update from the hinterlands of western NY  @7 degs   it's not only cold it is damn cold. Not sure if cold can be quantified in the bones but I for one am so tired of the cold and the  snow that comes once it begins to warm -  30 degrees - yeah, a real warming trend. When I first moved here from Los Angeles (still don't miss living in L..A. though) years & years ago snow was so quaint - even in our 150 yr. old uninsulated  farmhouse. Now, the house has been insulated nice fire going and I hate the cold more than ever.

@KarenKugell  Thanks so much Karen.  I caved - now a proud (?) twitterer - Being a twit used to have negative connotation - back in the day.  Again, thanks

I'd like to apply for the Amtrak Residency for Writers but I am a writer living in very rural NY with absolutely no need (200 people in town) for a twitter handle :(.   Please advise
