Chocolates!

Just thought I'd let you all know that I'm now a rep for Dove Chocolate Discoveries. :) It's a home-based business; like Tupperware, but chocolate! You can see our catalog and my page at www.dovechocolatediscoveries.com/chrissylewin

I'm really not pushy, so this will pretty much be the only time I announce it on AQ... I don't want to cross any etiquette lines!

But I do want to tell you, while I have your attention, that we sell a kitchen gadget called a tempering unit. If you've ever melted chocolate to pour into molds and make your own chocolates, you know that they won't set properly unless you use a double-boiler system and a candy thermometer. It's a little labor-intensive. Dove's tempering units will typically cost $299, which is cheaper than most brands (do a Google or Amazon.com search!), but this month they have a crazy deal. If you order the candy-making bundle, you get the tempering unit and 2.5 pounds of chocolate for a total of $154, which is a savings of $213.

If you're at all interested, just email me. :) This deal is only good through the end of March, and I'm putting in an order on Friday.

Wow, I sound like Billy Mays. Sorry about that, guys, but if anyone really wants one of these puppies, I don't want you to miss out! :)

that fuss over the bananas was kinda stupid. don't they grow there? I'm sure there's not a shortage of bananas. And the girl that loves James so much, wrote his name down. If she loves him so much, why did she vote him off??

Hitchhiker Hostel - log finds of HHs that start there?

I just launched a HH hostel with 11 hitchhikers in it. Some were HH that I collected from other boxes, some we made specially, and some were given to me (new) from other letterboxers. I logged them all in the "guest book" of course, but I'm wondering if I should log them as a find in that letterbox on AQ so that they will show up on someone's tracker? Then if someone takes one, they will just log the find in the same box. I think that's what I would want someone to do with mine, since they are out there somewhere, hopefully, but I'm not sure anymore...

I must say I was surprised by the person who got kicked off's last performance. It defied all that had been happening before hand. A great song choice and rocking the house down. I wonder if the judges were a tad confused by that? Flabbergasted, perhaps?

The only part of the show that we caught was the last 5 minutes, but I wasn't at all surprised by who went home. And to be honest, I still wasn't impressed with her final performance. Granted it was better than Tuesday, but still not super (IMHO). I was however shocked by Simon's comment about the judge's option. That was cold!

Okay, I'm heading up your way this Saturday (CDQ is at Mars Hill and the concert is Saturday), so let me know if they get in boxes before then! And if you want to shoot me a private e-mail and tell me exactly which boxes.... Not that I would dare ask for special info or favoritism... I'm just saying! *big evil grin*

I agree that you should log them as finds. It will let those who created the HH's know where they are. -Rose

I think that's cool, I've did the same thing with my signature pathtag, left it in a box I found for the next finder, sort of like a next finder prize instead of a 1st finder prize.

Well, as far as they're concerned, I appear to not exist.

Good deal!

I did, however, find my grandmother who's been dead for two years. Do you have to login to delete info? I want to get her off there.

There are people that choose not to participate in this part of letterboxing.

Others don't want them because they don't attend alot of events.

Figured it out.

Thanks for posting this, Ryan. I got my grandma off, found my mom and got rid of her listing too. I think I'll hunt for more of my family later.

Awww, couldn't you have just found another box in Bangor rather than the Potty Boxes???

I'm telling you....it's desperate times up here. If it weren't for Adventure Crafters, I wouldn't be finding ANYMORE! There are only a few active players up here. Everyone else dropped off the earth. Hope I never get near that line. Sounds SCARY!

Oklahoma is kinda a desert when it comes to events, Okie Dog and Safari Man threw the first events I attended in Oklahoma, Penguin Patrol did one last April, I'm doing one this May.

We have some new people coming into letterboxing so hopefully events will start happening more. It;s 2 to 3 hours to anywhere in Oklahoma so it's not like it's far to travel for those of us that can. We are still on the launching pad for things here in Oklahoma when it comes to letterboxing.

What an episode! I was standing on the couch cheering when Tyson got blind-sided.
I hope Rob & Russell both stay in the game. those two going at it makes it more interesting.
