Can it make it in to the Gathering and back in one weekend? /quote>

Well, it's a 10 - 12 hour drive from Atlanta (depending on whether my husband's driving or I am) so it'd be pushing it. You'd have to spend Friday getting here and Sunday getting back, but we could have a heck of a time on Saturday!

Esmerelda, I have noticed some of your boxes here in Northern Colorado. Do you live up here or just stopping in on your flight route? I just found this site today and brought over my boxes from LBNA to add here as well. I like some of the features this site has that you don't get with LBNA. Are you "flying the friendly sky's"?

It can be done, Spyder and I did it for the Haunted Hike and had a blast. I would probably do it again if it weren't for Mardi Gras.

This info has not reappeared on the LB clue pages. Is it being eliminated? I liked that feature as it was more informative than simply an "active" label....Norasta

Did you get to read it? How did you like it? I loved it! His books are great. I'm trying to read Mirror, Mirror but am bogged down. I want to read Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister, the reeeeeeal story of Cinderella.

Quote I figure business must be going well for you! (Either that or you've already found all the boxes in the area and are taking a vacation until a few new boxes are planted that you haven't found.)


Well, business is picking up a little. Mostly we have been getting things ready for the business and driving to birthing classes, dr. apointments etc. But, we have had time to find a few boxes here and there. Still quite a few that need finding though!

Sorry we missed the tea party, I was up in N Ga visiting my new nephew. Hopw to see someone on the trails soon :)

Quote I totally understand about whiplash in song selection. Some of my mixes are alphabetical by artist and it's interesting to have Ozzy Osbourne then Buck Owens or Metallica and then Glen Miller.


That's what it's like when I'm listening to music on my PC at work. Launchcast.com let me rate my favorites, and you never really know which genre the next one's coming from.

When SOBear and I were married, there were a few CDs we both had in common, but most of my collection is alien to her and vice versa. Now that I think of it, most of my collection is alien to almost everyone I know. I've always enjoyed finding good music by little-known artists; a friend once described it as the "best music no one's ever heard".

I like this music board, because since this board began I've sought out and enjoyed listening to some of the favorites people have listed here: Modest Mouse, Interpol, Maroon 5, Floating Men. Some of your faves are ones that I've also recently discovered elsewhere, like Norah Jones and Trash Can Sinatras. And there are some that were brought up that I'd nearly forgotten, like Ocean Blue and Barenaked Ladies.

Here's some of mine that cause people to say, "Who?" in no particular order:
Adrian Belew, Bill Frisell, O'2L, Morcheeba, The Lilac Time, Nightmares on Wax, Michelle Shocked, Alien Fashion Show, Syd, Zero 7, P.S. Jonah, Jem, Loreena McKennitt, Air, The Chieftains.

Less obscure: Matchbox Twenty, Peter Gabriel, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Pat Metheny, John Mayer, Modern English, Cream, Brian Setzer, Chris Isaak, Glenn Miller, The Doobie Brothers, John Coltrane, Dire Straits, Simple Minds, Traveling Wilburys, Stevie Wonder, They Might Be Giants, Madness, Dave Brubeck, The Police, Bennie Goodman, Allman Brothers, Steely Dan, Howard Jones, Camper Van Beethoven.

Considering the wide-ranging tastes exhibited here at Musical Musings, I'm sure that these are less foreign to you all than they would be to the average person! And although I'm accustomed to perplexing people as a result of my "favorites", please don't judge me too harshly if I've noted an artist you dislike. Most likely it's just one small color in the whole palette.

Well, shoot - now I have to pull some of this music out, since it's running through my head.

This is so truly horrible! So near and yet so far! Any chance we could get together for an exchange before you go? My schedule is pretty packed, with getting ready for the gathering and meeting another friend who's in from out of town, but tell me when you're free, and I'll see if I can meet you . . . how far north did you say you were staying again?

And what area boxes have you found?

Over the last week, we've rented a record number of DVDs... anyone seen any of these that they want to comment on? I was a little disappointed at the lack of special features offered on these.

Bourne Supremacy
The Forgotten
The Day After Tomorrow
Simon Birch
The Village



Of the bunch, Simon Birch is still my favorite film despite having seen it before and despite some broad departures from the novel.

Bourne was good for what it is (a simple cloak-an-dagger action movie) but I liked the story choices that were made getting it transitioned from 70's book to modern screenplay.

TDAT was pretty dumb. Or pretty and dumb, because some of the scenery/set sfx were nice.

The Forgotten was pretty good until the last 10 minutes.

I like M. Night Shyamalan so I watched The Village with an open mind. Good thing, too; I could see why some hated it. I liked it, but wouldn't consider it a classic-to-be. The best part? About 70 minutes into the movie, I realized something unusual for me: I had no idea what was going to happen next and no idea how the movie was going to end. I had some idea as to what was "really" going on but could not predict how (or if) it would show up in the film. Interesting to view, but not the huge "oh!" that was in 6th Sense.

I've added the Nova Scotia board to my favorites because I'm planning a trip to NS for this coming August, and I couldn't be more excited about it! Now... where are all the letterboxes? I'm going to be planting a couple while I'm up there as well. :) There are a few listed on LBNA... are there really only four on the island?

During the last big update it didn't make it into the new code, but will be there in the next update.

Quote It's a temporary thing. I've added back the finders for hitchhikers, virtual boxes, and postal boxes, but I still need to add back the last finder for normal and mystery boxes.

Speaking of finders, though, if you've selected to be notified when someone finds your box, you will still be notified! It just does not display finder information on normal and mystery boxes, but all other tracking of the finds works as always, and I will add it back for the next big update (probably in another month or so).

Hey there! I'm planning a trip to PEI this summer, and I can't wait. While I'm up there, I'm hoping to grab some boxes on the way. Can anyone tell me if there are any letterboxes on PEI? I found four on LBNA. Are there any besides these?

Yo shebearof3!

You must have read my mind! I posted this very complaint on the SE list this morning! Here's the info I got back...

Quote My only beef with PZ Kut is that it isn't so great for Crayola
> markers. It has kind of an oily sheen to it that doesn't work well
> with markers.

I saw a tip someplace to give the stamp a light sanding after carving
in order to rough up the surface which allows it to take ink a little
better. This may also help with the crayola markers.

Most of my stamps are PZ-Kut with a bit of sanding, so try it on one
of them.

BBB


Of course this won't help you if you find a PZ Kut stamp that hasn't been scuffed up prior to planting. But at least you know someone else in the world understands your frustration!

I almost think that Mastercarve holds ink TOO well. Darker colors seem to soak in and bleed out when stamped with a lighter color.

I don't usually carve on PZ cut, but I do use Crayola markers. I also frequently use a stamp pad though and it also seems to print the same as the crayolas. I think I would like to try nicer markers. Does anyone have a suggestion for markers they like.

I think some form of that was suggested earlier. Making mixes or something to share. Don't know what ever became of it as it was before Christmas. As for me, I'd love to hear some of the stuff you all talk about. Most of it, I've never heard of much less listened to. I'm pretty simple, plain jane with music.
