There's always room for more folks to join us. If you're just stumbling upon our Birthday thread or have lurked in the past and would like to join the fun, here's how our group works. During your Birth Month, you will receive a Birthday Card from each of the other participants. And in turn, you are to mail a Birthday Card to each participant during their Birth Month. Who doesn't enjoy receiving a thoughtful Card instead of junk mail and bills? A Card and a 1st Class Stamp, it's as simple as that. Purchased and handcrafted Cards are both welcome. Come on and have some fun!!!!

Hi, all.
Hey, since Paula is hosting again, do we get to have more "fun flower facts"? :)
Paula, that amaryllis sounds wonderful :) Need to look through mine and see what they're all doing. I think a bunch need water. Wonder if any will bloom this year.
I'll be volunteering for a month, too, but I need to think about which one I want. Will get back to you on this soon!
By the way, it's December, and I have tuberoses blooming!
Have a great week!

Michelle, since each of us host a month other than the one in which our Birthday falls, any would be fine for you except October, depending on your schedule and what you have going on. I've never grown Tuberose but you must enjoy them for their fragrance, and what a treat for you enjoying blooms this late in the year.

Thanks, LK. I'll put you down for March and will keep you in mind for another month other than June as we fill in the gaps.

It's sad losing past participants, but if your name is on the following list, please check in sometime this month if you'd like to be included in the New Year.

Hope43 / Twyla is still with us in spirit and responded to a recent Dmail that she's still having health and computer issues. Please send her a card this month to wish her a Happy Birthday and let her know we're thinking of her. She'd been a part of our group for several years.

For those lurking or have just stumbled upon us, we're always open to add you!

Hi, all.
I'll take May.
It seems our weather's been warmer than usual lately. Been in the high 50s/low 60s. Very thankful, too, given that I have tuberose buds blooming or preparing to bloom :) Been enjoying their wonderful fragrance... A very special treat at this time of year!
And I just discovered more rose buds on my Intrigue rose bush! One rose bloomed this past week, and I found four more buds!

Good Morning.
Hope everyone is feeling well. They were saying the flu season has started earilier this year. Seems they say that every year.

How about some Christmas facts:

America's official national Christmas tree is located in King's Canyon National Park in California. The tree, a giant sequoia called the "General Grant Tree," is over 300 feet (90 meters) high. It was made the official Christmas tree in 1925.

I did not know this...anyone else? Wonder if they decorate it? LOL

Hi, all.
I didn't know about the national Christmas tree either. And it's even in California! Would be fun to visit that park some time. Not sure which part of California it is in, though. But if the visit were timed right, then we'd know if they decorate the tree :)

Good Morning!

Here's a good link for those interested about the tree. Seems there is a yearly trek by many to see the tree.

http://www.seecalifornia.com/christmas/trees/national-christmas-tree-general-grant.html

I am really feeling the crunch about Christmas...I haven't bought my children anything. Years ago, I had it all bought in Oct. and November, but now that they are 19 and 16, they're a little harder to buy for, especially my son.

My children are both adults, and present buying is sooo hard. Mostly they buy their own presents and we foot the bill. This while not very fulfilling to me, prevents them being stuck with "stuff" which they do not and want and may leave here when they leave.
Experiential gifts would be good, but most of them I can think of are so expensive. Going out to eat would be one, I guess, but I was thinking of the time my daughter gave someone one of those para sail rides they have at the beach. Movie ticks are good , especially for kids.
Name some experiential gifts.

There's nothing wrong giving money and is what my parents gave me for years after I was grown, along with a couple of packages to open that were mostly work clothes-related. My MIL's birthday is Christmas week and she looks forward to the combined birthday / Christmas check we give her in a card. She is in her 80's living on Social Security with a small monthly retirement check, so any extra money for her is a windfall. Like you said, Crystal, it's not as gratifying as giving a tangible gift, but we all do our best to please or help. I've been finished shopping for a while, but then again we only have a few family members left on my husband's side of the family and local friends and neighbors to buy for.

Young adults those ages, Paula, are hard to buy for, especially now in the high tech age with all sorts of tempting gadgets. I'd be tempted to open or add to their savings accounts, make a car payment or two, or pay their insurance premiums for a year. I'm sure whatever you do will be appreciated.

For anyone interested, our Decorated ROCK swap is Open. Sign-ups end New Year Eve. It's time to start gathering and deciding how you'd like to decorate yours:

Yes, my son in definately into the high tech gadgets. Loves anything to do with computers and such. Well fruity, thank you for the suggestions, but I have had an automatic transfer to a savings account for both of my children since they were one year old. And I have to say my children are blessed, because they each have a vehicle and we provide their gas, insurance, and the whole shabang. And I have to say, they appreciate it also, and they do have to work for it. We are blessed that we are able to do it for them.

I have to say to you all...if you can ..Please look into the Angel tree with the Salvation Army. It's such a worthy cause and some children do not get anything for Christmas. We have adopted two this year...one is a little boy that his teacher said wore the same clothes to school everyday and when asked what he wanted for Christmas...the game Sorry and checkers, because his checker board broke. It broke my heart. The other is a little girl that my daughter was a counselor to at a local camp for underpriviledged kids. My daughter said she was the sweetest kid and just didn't have anything. We bought her clothes and her request was a bike. I know times are hard and everyone may not be able to help, but even if you could buy a football or something small, you would be surprised what joy some children get out of such a small gift.

If you don't have the Angel Tree locally...just check with your local school...most principals know if there is a need y child.

Christmas fun fact:

Each year more than 3 billion Christmas cards are sent in the U.S. alone.

Hello everyone,
It is freezing here...not so much temperature (46), but its wet...rained all day yesterday and now its that wet cold and I can't seem to get warm. I had plans to go outside and plant some things that I need to get in the ground, but its too cold...the winds blowing also.

Don't forget our two ladies that has birthdays coming up. Might not be bad to go ahead and mail them with all the holiday stuff going on.

Paula, your weather sounds like the weather we've been having lately... But we had the rain Wednesday, maybe again Friday. Thankfully, it wasn't raining Thursday as I was running errands and such. It was still pretty cold, though!

Aww Kris, stay warm. I was just telling my son last night as we dragged the trash can down the road...I hate cold weather. I do not know how you people that have snow and below 30 degree temps take it. I guess I am the biggest wimp when it comes to cold. I can safely say, I will never move farther north than I am. Michelle, sorry about your internet connection..that's aggrevating.

I am hearing the tick tock to Christmas and I still have a fewthings to buy...and no idea what to get.

The poinsettia is native to Mexico and was cultivated by the Aztecs, who called the plant Cuetlaxochitl (“flower which wilts”). For the Aztecs, the plant’s brilliant red color symbolized purity, and they often used it medicinally to reduce fever. Contrary to popular belief, the poinsettia is not poisonous, but holly berries are.

I am feeling so good these past few days. My tests came back with all good news. I am thinking that the good news has really helped my mood. Anyway, to date I have lost 37 pounds. And need to loose 50 more pounds before I am at my desired weight. But the next 50 pounds I plan to loose it much slower. Being healthy is all I really want. So tired of being sick.

Good morning Faye,
I'm going to wish you a VERY Happy Birthday now. The next two days are going to be very busy! I hope you have a wonderful birthday and a Merry Christmas! For the new year, I pray that you and Ray will have the year free of pain and setbacks. I mailed your card yesterday, so it will definately be a day or two late.

We have a heavy frost here this morning...booo! I did finally get around to taking cuttings of several things a couple of days ago...now I have to get out there and pot them up. I cut back my one brug tree and got a huge 5 gallon bucket of cuttings, so if anyone wants some let me know. It was about 8-9 foot tall. Its noid...but is in the pic below.

Faye, I'm chiming in with Paula to wish you the best birthday ever. You and Ray have been through so much and deserve to live the rest of your lives free from pain and illness. May you both be surrounded by family and loved ones for your birthday on Christmas Day. Did you decorate your Sun Room this year with your collection of Angels?

I hope all of you have finished your shopping and found just the right gifts. I can't imagine being out tomorrow in the mad dash.

MIL's birthday was today. She gets really sentimental this time of year, wondering where all the years have flown. Her Anniversary to my hubby's Father, who has been gone since hub's was a young teenager, would have been Christmas Eve. One of my favorite Aunt's birthday on my Dad's side of the family was the day after Christmas. And I nearly married a guy whose birthday is December 28, same as our Twyla's, which reminds me I need to get her card in the mail tomorrow.

Merry Christmas everyone. Thank you all for the birthday wishes. It is a great day for Ray & me. Later today we are going to Chesterfield Va. to see my older Sister.
Thank you Crystal/goldhilil, & Martha& Twyla for the Birthday Cards they are keepers along with the others I received.
Yesterday I got a thank you card from Twyla and she asked me to thank the two who sent her cards and let you know that her computer has been out for most of the year, lots of sickness in the family and she is sorry she hasn't been able to participate in the Birthday Club like she wanted to. Twyla also wishes you all a Merry Christmas.

Hi, all.
Faye, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Hope you've had a wonderful birthday and Christmas Day :)
Merry Christmas to all!
We got together with my husband's side of the family yesterday (Dec 24). Beautiful weather! We all had a lovely time. We then had a quiet Christmas at home, just the two of us. Also had a nice visit by phone with my mom in Pennsylvania. We're back to the rainy weather, complete with a few more downpours, so it was nice we did the travelling Christmas Eve day.
For years, I've always heard of sugar plums, but never had the opportunity to try them. Found a place out here that makes them and got some for us to try as a special Christmas treat. Pretty tasty :)

Hi, all.
Twyla, hope you had a wonderful birthday!
If anyone is in contact with Twyla other than by computer, perhaps you could pass on our birthday wishes? Last we heard, she was still having computer problems.
Faye and Twyla, I should be getting your cards out this coming week.
Faye, we'll definitely miss you. Do stop by when you can, and remember, we'd love to have you join us again when you can.
We think we finally got our internet connection problems resolved. Yay!
Fruity, put me down to host January, too. Hmmm, need a good cake picture... We'll have to see what yummy cakes we can find around to take a picture of :)
Have a great weekend, everyone!
