From MARY Jo G.

Your dog is having so much fun in the snow, Rosey.  It is beautiful but am glad that ours is gone.  Picked up three bright primroses and will plant them in pots on the porch to brighten our rainy and foggy days.
I worked in the quilt room today on organizing.  It is coming along.  The grandsons carried quilt books and mags upstairs.  Have been sorting them into stacks according to their purpose.  The give away pile is the biggest.  Sharing the room complicates things.  With two sewing machines and separate projects going on, it can get cluttered.  I should give Stephanie a drawer or bin for her things.  She is a perfectionist and a delight to teach.  Every one of her points match on her first project.  I'm very fortunate to have a delightful grand daughter in law who wants to quilt.  
Have had a virus for 10 days and am ready for it to be gone.  Lots of coughing and sneezing going on.  Have become very aware of how difficult it is to be ill while living alone.  Will think on getting a lifeline or something similar.  And, should leave a key somewhere in case of emergency workers needing to get in.  Maybe across the street...  I feel quite safe here but the bug got me thinking on what could happen.
Grand daughter Brooke is in Ecuador in language school and enjoying her time there.  She posts lots of pics which helps us to know what is happening.  Fun to watch the water going down the drain counter to what we see.  She is right at the equator.

I'm not sure, Mary Jo, just where the most ideal place to live is between the equator and the North Pole but the fact is, heating is a huge issue for us here an hour north of Toronto. We heat by wood, mainly, the cost of hydro here is huge (we have to account for paying their executives huge bonuses and salaries to run our hydro company apparently). Annie loves the snow, ploughs through any depth of it to get out to go potty but with the Canadian dollar taking a dip as it is because of the oil situation, I'm thinking, is there any real ideal place to live that you don't have to deal with the crises we do in winter just to survive and then in contrast to that, the heat of the summer in that place would not be so extreme that one boils in the hot months.

Mary Jo - Getting some sort of LifeAlert device sounds like a good idea. A few years ago, a widowed friend of mine had one but never used it.(she was too stubborn-LOL) However, shortly after she activated and started wearing it, she fell with a broken femur and used it to call for help. She couldn't get to the phone but the device worked. The ambulance knew exactly where to go because she was already registered via the device.
