Starr, sorry you have covid, thank goodness it is a mild case. Hope you and your daughter will be well soon.

I haven't copied any of my blogs, don't think I had any interesting ones. I guess I should look them over. Thanks for the reminder.

Starr, so nice to hear from you. I am so sorry that you and your daughter have covid. I sure hope you both recover quickly. I had it last November but I had a very mild case.

Take care of yourself dear friend. As Nancy said, we have a group on Facebook and would love to have you join us there. I know how tiring and exhausting this virus can be, so if you don't get back to us here before Spark is gone for good, please email me with your Facebook name and we can add you to the group. My email address is:
littlewind53@gmail.com (all lower case.)

I am working like crazy to copy all my blogs from Spark. It is really interesting to see what I wrote over the years. I already made sure I saved all my pictures from Spark. Then there are a few recipes I'd like to save. Just a little over 2 weeks left to get it all done. Wow, time is flying by.

I will miss a lot about Spark -- like all the cute emoticons. I tried and I can't save any of them because I get a message that they are copy protected. Sad. But I guess that's just the way it is.

Get lots of rest. emoticon

Starr... so sorry to hear that you've been ill with Covid.  I hope you recover very soon, and your daughter also. Had you been vaccinated?

We have started a group on FaceBook... it's called Spark Days.  I don't know how to "invite" you to join because I don't have your FB "name" (if you are even on FB). I'd hate to lose contact with you when this site closes!   We only have a few more days.

Hello there everyone.

My daughter and I have Covid! She tested positive last Sunday. I tested positive yesterday, although I have been sick and quarantining since last weekend. emoticon I actually had the covid test done the day after my daughter was tested positive, but it took the doctor 4 days to get the results to me.

MAKE 2021 THE BEST YOU CAN. (I'M PRAYING FOR A MUCH BETTER/HEALTHIER 2021 THEN WHAT 2020 WAS). GO AWAY COVID-19!!

REMEMBER, JESUS LOVES YOU--ALL THE TIME!!

I just clicked on the link to join.

I guess they are running it in the family as Will is gay too.

I read that Eric is coming back but just for a week to film. I don't think he wants to come back. I hope they can replace him. Jenson Ackles was Eric in the beginning.

I had trouble setting up the page at first but kept going around in circles until I was able to get it done. When you send the request, did it ask you any questions? I put the question, "where did you hear about this group" as the first question. Just wanted to see if it worked.

I did get your request and you have been added. I haven't checked to see how to add you as moderator. I will work on that either later tonight or tomorrow.

I sent a message to Starr so she knows where to find us. Once Court decides what she is going to do, we can move our discussions over to Facebook.

I found the new Spark Days site! And sent a "member request". This is kinda exciting... Thanks Linda!

I hope Abe doesn't cave to Paulina. I don't care for her either.
Had to do a doubletake with the new Chanel. I do like her better than the old one. But I'm NOT liking the "lesbian" relationship with her and Ali
Ciara is WAY too "mature" for Theo..

It is warming up here again but not supposed to last for more than a couple of days.

My BIL managed to get my fan apart and clean and oil the thing so it is working again. It is not to terribly bad inside right now.

I have been waiting to see more of the Pauline/Abe blow-up but other than Monday, they have not mentioned it all week. What do you think of the new Chanel? I must say I like her a lot more than the old one. Still can't stand Pauline, though. I have never like Jackie Harry and she doesn't bring anything to this role, in my opinion.

I think Ciera might be starting to get her memory back. Starting to, just a little flash, maybe? She sure is fighting it, though.

Talk soon.....

Linda... Thanks for trying to set up a FB page for us.  That's kind of you.Hey... How about "Spark Days"? Or "Days of Sparks"....  Whatever... doesn't much matter to me... I'd just like to stay in touch!             
 I'd be okay being an "Administrator"... as long as there isn't a whole lot of work to do!  (I'm allergic to work!  LOL)           

 So terrible about that "residential school".  When did all that take place?   You are so right... two wrongs do not make a right.  And... I also believe that we should not dwell in the past, but move forward.                          

I rather like the dress Gabby had on today.... the geometric brown/black one.  It's ugly, high necked, long sleeved... doesn't "show" much, but at the same time, it's rather sexy (of course, a GUY might not like it much!)                           

 EJ is up to something.  I think he either knows or suspects that Sami has been unfaithful.  He always gets a funny expression on his face when she turns her back.     
                            
I don't much blame Nicole for having that fling with Xander.  True, it was wrong... but Eric is all but PUSHING her into an affair with SOMEONE.  He has been in Africa for... what?  Over a year?  It looks like he could at least come home occasionally.                                     

 I'm kinda rooting for Gwen and Xander.  They both have a "mean streak" (to say the least).... and at first I did NOT like Gwen... but I'm beginning to.  And I think they are  "right" for each other.  No... certainly not a "match made in Heaven"... perhaps made somewhere else!  LOL

LADIES:
I am trying to set up a Facebook page where we can discuss as little or as much as we like on any subjects we choose. Much like this thread has been here. We won't have any of the other Forums that are on Spark -- just a place for us to chat.

My questions are:
1.) What would you like to see the page called? I was thinking somewhat in the line of SP Alum - DOOL or something similar. If any of you have any other other suggestions, please feel free to let me know. Feel free to mix things up or come up with something completely different.

2.) Would anyone else like to help be admin on the page. I ask this so that there is at least one other person if for some reason I am not able to be around. (like last year when I was in the hospital for almost 5 months and still had to stay somewhere else for an additional month because the elevator was not yet back in service)

Think on it and let me know....

Linda

Linda, that is terrible what happened to the kids put in the residential homes. I didn't know about that.
I'm glad things went well with the pest control. We had a rental that I called the ant house.
Hope you can find a good apartment.

We lucked out in my part of Florida, had rain.

Nancy,
After they decided to "open things up" to stage 3 recovery, there was plans for Canada Day celebrations. Sadly the unmarked graves of hundreds of children were found I think on the day before. This is not the first mass unmarked grave found recently.

These were children that were forced from their homes into residential care There were forced to be "white" They were not allowed to speak their native language, or visit their families or even have their family members visit them. The church that ran these residential schools thought they could beat and force the "heathen" out of those children. So many of those children died in secret and never made it home. This is truly a stain on Canada as a whole.

In retaliation, there have been demonstrations against the government and some extreme vandalism. A statue of Queen Victoria was destroyed, as was one of Queen Elizabeth. Several Catholic churches have been vandalized and some even set on fire.

Personally, I don't believe that two wrongs can make anything right. On the other hand, if the majority of the injured peoples are in so much pain and so hurt, I don't know if any compromise could even be reached. I really don't know how this will all play out.

Pest control was here this morning. NO PESTS found! YEAH! I am so sick of this infestation and the way those bug--rs move so fast from apartment to apartment. Trouble is, they can't use the chemicals they used to be able to use so it is much harder to get rid of them now. If only people would stop finding trash on the side of the road or whatever and deciding "I can use this" and take it home.

But at least I am ok for another couple of weeks.

Take care.

Linda

Linda, I had heard that the fireworks and other events for Canada Day were cancelled, but I understood it was because of the Pandemic.  I don't think it was wrong to say "Happy Canada Day"... MOST Canadians would appreciate celebrating the anniversary of your great country!

You certainly do have a dilemma about finding an apartment!  I hope you find something suitable soon.  I don't blame you for not wanting to have a stranger as a roommate.    If you could check out the roommate before hand it would be nice... but that's probably not an option.

Hi Nancy. Yes, all is ok here.

I don't know if you heard but Canada Day celebrations were mostly cancelled this year, in solidarity for the indigenous people so most planned fireworks had been cancelled. Stupid me, I did not know this so I happy posted "Happy Canada Day" Not very popular.....

I don't like crowds so I never go to fireworks, would rather watch on TV, but I fell asleep and totally forgot to look for them..... I guess I didn't miss anything!

Spent some money this weekend. Some was necessary, some was pure indulgence on my part. (Shhh, don't tell Sis. I am supposed to be downsizing, not buying more stuff, lol)

I put my search for a new apartment on hold for the weekend. Will have to get back to it this week. I don't know why so many buildings are built with stairs. Stairs up to the front door, stairs once inside the door as one has to go down half a flight to get to the first floor level, or up half a flight to get to the second level. And of course, anything 3 floors or under does not have to have an elevator. So my problem is that if there is a fire alarm, fire drill or heaven forbid, an actual fire, How am I supposed to get down (up) to the front door with all those stairs. And once I got there, I wouldn't have my walker (how do I hang onto the railing and control that as I try to go downstairs) so how would I get around outside. Any apartments that are "wheelchair friendly" are priced way out of my price range or in the scummy part of town.... I checked out a couple of lodges, seniors homes, and the cheapest is over 1300 a month but then I would have to choose a meal package. I said I wanted independent living but that is all part of their prices The worst part, is that even with a meal "service" one only gets the supper meal so I would still have to fix my own breakfasts and lunches.. But the kitchenettes are so tiny they are not conducive to cooking actual meals. Another place price starts at 2600 a month. That's more than all my pensions combined. And same story with the meal packages - just includes supper but not anything else. One place did have 2 bedroom units but I would have to share it with someone else, which would make it cheaper, but still not affordable. And they would assign who I would share with. I don't want to live with a stranger!

Well I must get busy. Pest control is coming in AGAIN! After I finish cleaning up a few more things, I will be checking out what I need to do to set up a facebook page for us. More on that later.

In the meantime, have a great day!

Thanks Linda. We had a nice Holiday weekend... the fireworks were a bit much. emoticon Our neighborhood really goes all out with them. ONE night would be okay... but by the third night, it was getting old. And there probably will be some more tonight. Oh well, at least some people are really enjoying themselves and celebrating out nation's birthday. emoticon
How about you? You doing okay?

Oh yes.  It's Hurricane Season again.  And TS Elsa has formed.  It's a long way away, and anything can happen.  As I've probably said... we used to live on the St. Johns River, and were in an evacuation zone.  We got flooded twice, and had to evacuate whenever a TS or Hurricane approached... we just got too old for that!  So three years ago we moved.  We are only about 10 miles away from our old house, but we are "high and dry"... the neighborhood we live in has underground utilities, so power outages are rare.  I've heard that even in the last two bad hurricanes (Matthew and Irma) the power was only out for a day.  (At our old house it was out for 8 days each time)    I feel so much more "secure" here.  Whew! 

  I heard or read where Eric would be returning "this summer".... but rumors are just that.  But I think he will.  Of course, it seems as though Rafe might have a fling with her before Eric comes back.  They sure are leading up to that!  And... I don't know what purpose the "one nighter" with Xander would have if not to have Nicole come up pregnant. 

   Yes... Kate voted against Jake... and divulged that she was faking her amnesia and her blindness.                             
 Boy, they sure have dropped the story about Dr. Sleezebag.  He died about a week ago, and I haven't heard a word about it since!  Or about Gwen being a "drug runner"!  What's going on with that?  (I might have missed it, because I didn't watch on Friday). 
                                 
 I'm so over "who does the Dimera mansion belong to" storyline.  Gabby?  EJ?  Chad?   I think that eventually Ciara will return, and have her memory back.... just about in time for Ben and Clare's wedding!  LOL                     

 I'm sure going to miss chatting with you gals about Days...  I have your email address, Court... but I don't think I have anyone else's from this group.

And now we have to keep checking news on hurricanes. Ugh! I let my husband do that and let me know when to worry. I always feel we are the first to put up our shutters, but he said why wait in case it comes and we have to do it in the rain. Hope we don't get any, we just got the house pressure cleaned.

I missed Days last few days. I know Jim said Kate voted against Jake. Will Ben and Ciara ever get back together? Will she get all her memories back? Will Eric ever come back?
That's right, Nicole can't have kids, but like you said, it is Salem. A very weird city. Must be the water.

Starr... it's always good to hear from you.    I hope we can find a way to stay in touch even when SP closes down!                                   
What ever happened to the guy who got stranded in Europe?  I know he was planning to come meet you.  Did you ever get to meet in person?   
                           
Linda... No, you're not a wuss for not liking to be in 37 degree C.  (That's 98 degrees F, and that's HOT in anybody's book!)  We aren't having the extreme heat wave that the "west" is experiencing... but it is hot... and VERY humid!  But in Florida, Air Conditioning is pretty much a necessity.  Unfortunately, WE will stay hot and muggy until around NOVEMBER!

How is everyone handling the heat -- or is it hot where you are?

You probably think I'm a wuss, but our temperature got up to 30 degrees C and I could barely handle it. It was up to 37 yesterday, don't know what it will get up to today.

Sis & BIL loaned me a portable floor air conditioner. It helps a bit, it doesn't do a great job of cooling. but at least it is not above 32 degrees in my apartment, Only 29.5. Well even just those 3 degrees, I'll take it.

Our heat wave should be tapering off starting this weekend. I'm looking forward to it!

Starr... It was such a treat to see your post!  Glad that you are doing well.  Yes, sometimes "enough is enough"... and "all things must pass".... as with watching Days.  I think if I didn't have anybody to discuss it with, I'd probably lose interest too.... but my daughter keeps up with it, and we have fun talking about it (and until Sparks closes down, I have you gals).  Hopefully, we can keep in touch somehow.  (Again, my email address is Nnzoom@aol.com if anybody wants to know).                           

 Just when I think "I've HAD it with Days"... SOMETHING interesting will happen, and I'll keep watching... JUST A BIT LONGER.... then I get hooked once again!  Of course, Xander "shirtless" is motivation enough to want to watch!  LOL               

Court... Nicole cannot have children.  But... in Salem ANYTHING can happen.  The dead can come back to life (remember, Jack died and even had several organs donated!), Marlana can be the Devil, Microchips can control brains.... so it would be no big deal for Nicole to be pregnant!  Heck, I bet even if a woman had a complete hysterectomy... in SALEM she could conceive!!!

Hi Starr, Yeah, I think most of the original characters in soaps have gone on in one way or other. My husband watches DOOL and Y&R and B&B.

I liked the segments with Xander, Gwen and Julie, with the dead doctor on the couch and with Jack when he came in. The guy's head and feet were out in the open. funny. I thought Jack would trip over his feet.

I like Xander a lot better now then when he first came into it. I find him cuter now, LOL Like a funny duo. I'd like to see what other shows he's done.

Is Nicole able to have kids now? I've forget.

Well, I've got to get to bed, takes me a while to go to sleep.

Hello there ladies.

It has been a very long time since I have been her chatting with you all.

The main reason why I have not been on, is because I have stopped watching DOOL. I have lost, pretty much, all interest in it. I have watched it off/on for 40 years, but a lot of my favorite actors have either passed away or left for other opportunities. Making the show not all that interesting to me.

I hate it that SP is closing down next month, as I have been a member for more then a decade now. But, it is what it is.....as my 37 year old daughter says.

I hope that all of you and your families are well and safe. In light of Covid, the Lord has kept me and all of my family safe & well. I am very thankful for that.

If you all would not mind, I would like to know if you end up going to facebook or some other medium to correspond.

You all take care of yourselves and I hope you will have a wonderful rest of the day.

Hugs,
Starr

MAKE 2021 THE BEST YOU CAN. (I'M PRAYING FOR A MUCH BETTER/HEALTHIER 2021 THEN WHAT 2020 WAS). GO AWAY COVID-19!!

REMEMBER, JESUS LOVES YOU--ALL THE TIME!!

Court... Most of my friends watch several "series" on TV.... but other than "Days" and local news, I really don't watch much TV.  I'd rather read a book (on my Nook usually) than watch something on TV.                      
  Johnny and Ali were actually born in October of 2007.   (Ali sure looks mature for a 14 year old!  LOL).  And Sydney in 2009... so she isn't that much younger than the twins.  She could easily come back as an "older" teen.                      

   Linda... Do let us know if you are able to set up a site for us.  I don't want to lose touch with you gals!                             
I liked the "old" EJ better than the new one.  However, I do think that he could grow on me.  He seems to have a convincing "strong" streak.  And can be devious (a Dimera trait!).  I don't think he will have any problem ousting Gabby!                              

I have a feeling that Nicole will find that she's pregnant... with Xander's baby!  (Haven't read anything to that effect though)... then Eric will come in town just in time to find that out.  Or... perhaps if it's soon enough, Nicole will claim it's Erics?  Who knows.   
                                   
 I don't have a problem with Justin & Bonnie... but they've worn that out.  Obviously she has changed (and is more like how Adrian was).                                     
I agree... they don't need to drag out Kate's blindness.  Chad already knows... and Lucas suspects... so I imagine she will keep slipping up.  Of course, in the mean time, she will manage to have sex with Jake, which won't go over well with Gabby.  And I'm SURE that Kate will manage to somehow get Gabby to walk in on them.                       

 Yep.  Jan will probably escape!  Of course, she's on "monitors", but Dr. Sleezebag wouldn't tell anybody....  BUT.... he DIED!  Right?

At least Gwen doesn't have to run drugs for him. I hope he is, indeed DEAD!

I heard from a team leader (different team) that another team leader is setting up a group on a site called free forum and will be sending out invitations after the weekend. I will check out this site and If it is any good I will let you know.

Yeah, I heard that Johnny is coming to Salem. I was also wondering about Sydney (yes she's younger that Johnny and Ali who are twins)

I haven't decided what I think of the new EJ. I just wish they would find a way to get the DiMera mansion back from Gabi. Sick of her lording it over everyone that it is HER house. I wonder what they will do about Jake and DiMera Enterprises. Has he done such a terrible job? If he has, wouldn't Mr Chin have kicked his sorry butt out of the CEO office by now? And how does Mr Chin have so much power over a family owned company. Never could figure that out.

Have you heard if Eric is coming back from Africa, even if just for a flying visit?

What do you think of Justin and Bonnie together? While I like them, it does seem kind of weird, her being the spitting image of Adrienne and all..... And as much as I like Steve, I kinda liked it when Bonnie put him in his place.

I hope they don't drag out the Kate blindness story too long. The amnesia thing I could handle but not her play acting at being blind.

Last week I saw Jan move her little finger. does this mean she is faking this coma or she will come out of the coma soon? I hope she doesn't have a chance to run off and evade the police. With her history of faking a coma, why isn't she handcuffed to the bed "just in case"?

Very hot here this morning, 26 degrees inside my apartment. It didn't cool down at all. I hope it won't be a scorcher of a day.

Have a great one, everyone!

I wonder when they'll bring Sydney into the show? first Ali then Johnny. Mighty as well bring little sis. I think she was younger.

Yeah how did Zander and Jack get buddy buddy?

I've been binge watching a sy fy show. Andromeda. Of all things i get interested it. Before that it was Lucifer. Really need to get a life. LOL

I need to exercise more. My hips are so big, no wonder my lower back hurts.

Sounds like a good idea for a FB page.

I  don't know why Xander is suddenly so protective of Gwen.  He told Dr. Sleazeball that it's because she is his "Best friend's daughter".  But... how long have he and Jack been besties?  About a week?  Anyway, I rather LIKE the idea of him and Gwen.  They kinda suit each other.  (And both have that "accent"!)  Both are capable of being quite "bad"!       

 Linda... Go ahead and set up a FB page for us!  That's a great idea.  Just let me know how to get to it!  We do have time, but that time will slip by quickly.                   

Indeed Sami IS being hypocritical!  Not only did she cheat with Lucas, but TWICE!So... EJ is back (another actor).  I hope he's as sexy as the old EJ.  Sami sorta NEEDS "sexy"!  (And she's had plenty!)           

 I don't remember the part about Johnny having his eye removed.  But, in Salem, it's really easy to get a bionic one... or bionic anything else!   LOL  (Johnny & Ali... twins... were born in October of 2007...  so in reality, only 13 years old!  Of course Ali is an "adult", and so will Johnny be.)         

 I've never used a pressure cooker.  I, too, witnessed Mom's "blow up" a few times.  I wasn't scared of it, I just don't care to mess with one.  Heck, I don't need ANYTHING that will encourage me to ate more!  LOL

Congrats on the Ninja Foodi. I have an instant pot and I used to be so deathly afraid of pressure cookers and Coleman camp stoves and basically anything under pressure! Never knew why until one day my mother told me that I had witnessed one blow up when I was very small. No one got hurt but it scared me...

But I bought an electric one and found it to be safe, That first one died and it took me awhile to replace it but finally got an IP. I don't do a lot of things, mostly soups and eggs, although I have done spaghetti and macaroni, even did some PIP lasagna. Sadly, it does not have a crisper lid. I would have liked a grill, but there is only so much room one can put things in small apartments! (sigh)

Hope you have a great weekend!

My husband bought a Ninja Foodi. We used it once. It has a pressure cooker lid, but I'm afraid of those. I think we cooked chicken with air fryer lid. It is taking up space, but he says he'll use it. Actually we both try to figure it out.

My e-mail is: jccweaver@comcast.net.

I saw the new EJ. Kind of cute but I like the original. Takes me a while to deal with change.

Tennis is on tomorrow again so no DOOL.

It's great to email but I was thinking it could only be a conversation between 2 people. (I am not very good with remembering to add in email addresses if someone else from the team (or elsewhere) wants to be part of the discussion) So, I was actually thinking of opening a Facebook page where we could talk "the show"... There are other platforms but Facebook is the only one I am familiar with.

What do you think?

Spark is closing the website on August 17th. I can't join Spark America as it's only for the US

I joined Spark in March of 2009. I have had to take a number of breaks for health and medical reasons, but I have always had it to come back to. Now that will no longer be an option. I am not completely back from this last absence, and I guess I never will be. I'm going to miss not having it to return to.

I don't think there are any articles or blogs or even recipes that I want to keep. As far as recipes go, I can do a google search and get thousands of options so why go through all the hastle of trying to save the ones from Spark. When I first started, I set up some Spark cookbooks and saved a lot to there but truthfully I have never really used them. As for the articles, I have often found the information they contain to be out of date and sometimes just plain wrong. I think I will spend some time this next month or so deleting all my blogs, cookbooks, etc, and leave a lot of the teams and then close out the account.

Sorry you missed Monday's show. And this is a short week as it's not airing on Thursday or Friday.

I don't mind Xander being a little on the naughty side, but I would really hate to see him go back to being a monster. However I heard that he is going to take on the doctor and tell him to leave Gwen alone, no more being a drug mule for her! Wonder what the doctor will retaliate with?

Sami really is a hypocrite, trying to pin Nicole for cheating on Eric when she did the same thing, cheating on EJ with Lucas. I heard that she tries to recruit Lucas to help her take Nicole down but he refuses. Good for Lucas, standing his ground. Hope he doesn't cave, because Sami always seems to be able to get him to do what she wants. Stay strong Lucas!

I remember that when Nicole first came on the show, they were friends (of sorts and of course that did not last very long!) and Sami was a big supporter and got Nicole a modelling gig at Titan.

They have finally recast EJ. I hope this guy is good! I mean, being easy on the eyes is one thing, but hopefully he will also be able to act, lol And they have a new all grown up Johnny coming this summer. Wonder what is going to happen there. Remember Johnny had cancer in his one eye and the eye surgically removed. Wonder if these writers know about that?
Will Johnny become another Patch? lol

I'm so looking forward to this summer!

Hope you are having a great week.

I hear that SP will close the website soon! Not sure the date, but this summer.
I will be sad not having anybody to chat with about our favorite show. But... If any of you want to continue to chat about the show... my email address is Nnzoom@aol.com. Just be sure to put something in the subject area something that will tell me it's one of you. Like.. "Days fan"... or Friend from SP... or something else.

Yep.  Wayne Northrup.  He never did much for me.  The "new Roman/Chris Kosticheck didn't either.                   

 I didn't get to watch yesterday (IF it was on!)... and Monday we were preempted by TENNIS.  (Don't know WHY, with all the sports channels, they have to do that!  People would be furious if Days preempted a sports program!  LOL)                 

Price is Right?  I should've been watching that!  Cutie-patutie for sure... with those low cut swim trunks!!!     
I still think Ciara will return just about the time Ben and Claire get really involved! (Then the Ciara/Claire feud will start all over again!)               

 Linda... I kinda LIKE Xander being "bad"!  (Hopefully not TOO bad!)  But I always went for the bad boy type!  When X was with Sarah, he get a bit too goodie-goodie. I like the edge. 

 I wonder if now that Kristen has to leave Salem... (but "I'll be back!") if Sarah will return.
And I still wonder if Chanel will turn up pregnant!  ???  Xander?  A FATHER???  Yikes!             
 No... haven't ever used an air fryer... but I have a good friend who has one and swears by it.  Cooks all sorts of things in it.  Let us know how you like it.

Wayne Northrop. Just seeing the name and now I remember.

I never watched Price is Right. but I like Ben on Days.

Not liking the reversal of Xander back to a monster. Poor Jack did not know what he was getting himself into when I befriended Xander. I hope Sarah comes back (escapes) soon and puts him in his place.

Anyone of you use an air fryer? I got one from the Air Miles reward program at no current cash out of pocket (I already bought my groceries and saved up the air miles), and it arrived at my Sister's on Monday, and my BIL brought it to me on Tuesday. It is a Ninja 2 basket Dual Zone and even though each basket is smaller that many other brands and models, I love the idea that I can cook 2 separate foods and have them finish at the same time so one dish does not get cold while I cook the other dish. And I am only cooking for one so it's plenty big enough for most of my needs. I went grocery shopping on Tuesday and bought a few things to try out - like fish and chips etc. But my back and hips hurt so bad I had to sit down and rest when I got home so I did not get the unit washed and ready to use yet. But there is always today, lol. I have been watching lots of videos on You Tube so getting some ideas what it can do..... (and how not to do it, lol)

Wayne Northrop I think was the 1st Roman. The recent Roman used to be on a sitcom 'Valerie' back in the 80s.

I agree, don't drag out the Jan thing. Send her to jail. Can't wait for that DA or whoever she is, finds out it is Jan and not Belle. She always seems to have it in for the Bradys.

The guy who plays Ben used to be on 'The Price is Right.

Linda... I have a Canadian friend whom I keep up with regularly  She got her first vaccine about a month ago, but is not looking to get her second until about August!  I don't think Canada has gotten the vaccines as soon as we did here... but more will be coming in, soon, I hope.                     

 We have pretty much "opened up" around here.  When we went to the grocery store the other day, it was the first time in over a year that I did not wear a mask.  There were some people who wore them, but not many.  A LOT of people have gotten all of their vaccines... so the "number of new cases" and hospitalizations are way down.           

Yep... the "who killed Charlie Dale" thing is getting old.  I'm sure Jan will get off... somehow.  Insanity maybe?  But... I imagine they will convict Belle... and she will go to prison (or get ready for a lethal injection?)... then... somehow they will find out that Jan was the one.  (Ho hum... they've done that a FEW times before).                   

You are so right about the "pass the buck" attitude.  I love it when someone takes responsibility... admitting "I made a mistake".  That's so rare these days!           

We don't have any special plans for Memorial Day... but we DID have hot dogs for lunch today!  (That's not a usual happening around here... but they sure were good!)  Thanks for the well wishes!

Yep, current Roman used to play Chris. I can't remember the name of the guy who played Roman, but I actually like this Roman better (I never really liked the old one.)

I wonder what happened to Cady, the actress who took over from Melissa Reeves. Jennifer is off in Chicago tying up loose ends of her mother's estate but really, does it take this long?

Gabi and Abby almost sounded like friends in the last scene as Abby was leaving. Does this mean she's going to turn into a good person again? Nawh, don't think so, but it would be nice if she wasn't always so mean..... I always thought Jake and Kate was an odd pairing, but I don't like Jake and Gabi at all. I think he's ways too good for her.

I still don't get on the computer much, so have not read many of the newsletters from Soap Hub. I did not know that Abby (the actress) was expecting but I had noticed that she was always wearing loose and baggy clothes lately and wondered why. So now I know....

What do you think of Jan kidnapping Claire... and leaving Chloe trussed up in a car trunk? I hope this whole "Who killed Charlie Dale" story wraps up soon and write Jan off the show for good. I really can't stand these "if this happens, it's all your fault" attitudes. Jan saying that if Claire got hurt it's all Belle's fault! Is there no such thing as taking responsibility for one's own actions? Not just in our soap, but in real life as well.....

My BIL called to see if we (all 3 of us) could get our 2nd shot soon and was told that as we already had our 1st shot, we had to wait until THEY contacted us for the second one. Apparently there are still shortages of the vaccine - or so the rumour mill goes!

They have started to open things up a bit, although doctors are waring it's too much, too soon and will lead to 4th wave. Churches will be able to have 15 percent of capacity starting this Sunday (28th) Then on June 1st, we can have up to 15 percent in retail stores and restaurants. Up to10 people at outside gatherings, but still no indoor gatherings at all. except for weddings and funerals and they will be heavily limited and monitored.

I heard that when they allow restaurants to open for indoor dining, they will be limiting to 4 people per table and only if they are living in the same household. What does that mean for families of 5 or more (my nephew has 4 kids so there are 6 of them.... I guess he has to sit at one table with 2 kids and she has to sit at another table with the other 2.... but try to keep those kids from running over to each other - would not be easy.

Not much else now. Hope you ladies have a great day..... weekend. It's your memorial day on Monday, isn't it? Hope you have a great one. Take care.

I didn't know about Abby.... but maybe after her baby is born, she will be back.... Or... they might find another actress (they've done that before... with MANY characters!)

Yes, I remember Chris Kostichek... And "Roman" was a different actor. (Can't remember his name, but he had dark, very curly hair).

Even though I keep "records"... i often get confused as to who is related to whom!

That is cool to keep records, at least you know who belongs to who and I think sometimes when they change writers they don't always remember everything happened.

I remember that Roman was Chris Cosacheck. Probably spelled that wrong. Also, Wasn't Rex Brady? Kyle Lowder. I think the original Rex is on The Rookies now, Eric Winter.

Kositchek, I looked it up.

Guess Abby is really pregnant so actress will be leaving town. Now we know why she wore baggy coats.

Nicole's' baby... Holly (not such a baby any more.... She was born Christmas 2016... so she's 4+ years old. Holly's biological father is Daniel (wasn't he killed in a car accident when Eric was driving drunk?) Anyway.... his sperm was "saved" because they were trying alternative methods of having a baby... and Chloe was to be the surrogate...then she didn't want to give up the baby... finally she did. Not sure if the "egg" was from Nicole or Chloe. ??? (What does it matter? LOL) (I could be wrong about some of the details... but that's close to how the storyline went.) I know that Nicole had a few miscarriages... but what difference does THAT make either! At least in Salem!

You're right about Nicole! Heck, she was even married to Victor, wasn't she?

I have a "file" on my computer that I record births in Salem... the dates, and the parents. (Yes, I'm anal!) I used to have a running journal of happenings in Salem, but I'm don't do that regularly any more.

Hey, if they can bring back the dead, they can unbarren a woman. lol

Doesn't Nicole have a little girl? Who takes care of her while she's out milling about? Maybe she's Eric's daughter. Does he have one? I'm so lost. I need a chart on each person. I think Nicole has been with every man on the show.

Court, I'm still wearing my mask too. I understand that you can still transmit the virus even if you've been vaccinated. ??? (But I'm not around people much, so don't know where I'd pick it up!)

Now Kristen wants Xander to KILL Sami, Lucas, and Chloe! JUST because they know her "secret" (Well.... she wants Chloe dead anyway!). I hope that Xander doesn't try that. Surely he's smarter than that!

So... will Nicole turn up pregnant? (Even though she's "barren"?)

Linda ,sorry you have to wait so long for 2nd shot, but glad you got the first one. I was able to get my first shot and the second one 3 weeks later. I guess countries are all different.

I went to a restaurant to eat inside for the first time last month, then my husband and I went to one last week. We went to Wal-Mart today and a lot still wore masks but a few didn't.

I think I'm spoiled wearing masks. My ugly chapped lips don't show. lol

Yeah, I hope Kristen gets caught, don't drag this out. Knowing Kristen and Susan traded places, how can he trust her? Men!

Hello Linda!  So happy to see you back.I have another friend who lives in Canada, and her situation with the vaccine is similar to yours.  She got her first shot a couple of weeks ago, but may have to wait until mid summer to get the second.  At least you have ONE dose already, and they say that, alone, helps.            
We are lucky here in Florida... things are pretty much "back to normal".  People still wear masks (most people anyway)... and some businesses are open with "limited capacity"... but many are open at 100% capacity.                   

Wow! That's just crazy that they would change the entry codes and NOT tell the residents!                   
No... for sure, Kristen has NOT changed.  I have a feeling that pretty soon all of Kristen's kidnappings will come to light, and Brady will move on (maybe with Chloe?  Or Nicole?)       Sad that Eric chooses his "ministry" (in Africa) over his wife!  I knew he would be off the show, but wasn't sure if or when he might come back.  I guess as soon as Nicole "moves on" with Xander or Brady or someone... he will come back and wan things to be hunky-dory.

I was finally able to get my first shot on April 9th, but I can't get the 2nd one until 4 months so hopefully by 2nd week in August. As of yesterday, everyone in the province over the age of 12 will be eligible to get the first vaccine.

I so look forward to the time when we can go back to some kind of normal.
My nephew finished nursing school this year and is a graduated nurse. He is going to write his exam to get his RN designation. The exam is in Edmonton, but we are still under so many restrictions that we cannot all get together to have a family dinner. My sister read on Facebook that churches are restricted to maximum of 15 people, unless one of them is dead, and then it's only 10 people. And if you move it outside, then it's only 5 people. Go figure.

I must fall asleep a lot when watching the show, because I don't remember the crack about Orpheus. I so wish he stayed dead. I can't stand the way they keep killing off these criminals but they always come back to life! I also missed the big smooch. I wish Kristen would fall off the planet, can't stand her. Poor Brady keeps defending her saying she "changed" but obviously not the case!

This new management company is not much better than the old one. When the entry phone went out of service and I called about it, they came, looked at the panel (not tried or tested it, just saw that the light was on) and didn't bother. I had to get my neighbour (who got several others) to phone and complain. Finally they got it fixed but it was out for 2 weeks. When they worked on that, they changed the codes that people have to dial to reach us, but they did not tell us what our codes would be. They left the notice in the large panel which said "unit # = code #, so everyone was still trying to dial my apartment number and could not get through. Management never did let the residents know what they were doing. Then, I thought the system had gone down again because I could not get the door to open. Turns out they changed the number we have to press on our phones to open the door. Finally one of my care aides suggested I try pressing 6 so I did the next time she came and it worked. The management could not even be bothered to let us know of the change. I have lived in this building for 9 years and have always pressed the number 9. Then without any notice they change it to 6! I phoned about something else but no one answered, so left a message, and before I hung up, I said I also wanted to register a complaint and proceeded to tell them about this code thing and why was none of the residents told about the change. You know they never did call be back, about either issue! I am really anxious to get out of this "h-e-double-toothpicks-hole" but I must find someplace without stairs. Not an easy thing to find around here. Most of them have stairs to get up to the entrance door and/or once in the door one has to go down some stairs to get to the first floor or up some stairs to get to the second floor. Neither one is good for me... and then there is the cost of rent -- it is outrageous!

Well enough for now. I spent so much time today trying to clean out the fridge that I never got any dishes done. I must remedy that.

Take care ladies....

Probably almost everybody was in London... just like almost everybody was at Charlie's apartment the night he was shot!!!             

Xander is cuter with his shirt OFF!  LOL                

Yeah... Kristen is at the hospital, disguised as Kate... so what happens when Kate shows up (looks like she's injured?)... maybe in the ER?               

 Sami discovered that Susan was really Kristen... but Susan blackmailed Sami... said she would go right to EJ about her sleeping with Lucas if she didn't help her "get rid of Chloe"... one way or another.    Then Sami talked Lucas into helping.  (Didn't turn out so well!)

I think your right about Ally. It was a surprise that Chantal was in London and knew Ally. Was everyone in London then??!!

I agree about Xander's hair. He looked too severe with it smoothed back. Cuter messed up.

I hope Kristen gets found out and caught. Don't drag it out forever. She's in the hospital disguise as Kate.

It will be good to have the 'old' Jennifer back. I like her.

So then, Sami is working with Kristen? I must have been missing more than I thought.

Yeah... the mask thing is WAY beyond belief.  Not to mention contact lens (that fit) to make her eyes brown!)  Oh well... she had to "get rid of" both those ladies pronto!     

 I just can't believe that Ally is gay... she's too "into" Tripp.  Of course, he's gonna THINK she is.  (I've heard before that it's "cool" for the younger generation of girls to exchange lip to lip kisses... even between friends.  (Blaaaah!)               

  I have mixed feelings about Xander.  I rather like him with "an edge".  He was getting a bit "soft" (NOT "physically" soft though!  I LIKE him in that kilt!  Hubba hubba!)  And, yep... that messed up hair rocks!    I'm just glad that Xander & Channel aren't gonna STAY married!  (But you never know... maybe the annulment won't go through.  ???  Technically, they DID "consummate" the marriage!)         
I think it's funny that she's always calling him "Xavier"!              

I heard at one time that the "old" Jennifer was going to be gone for a few months... then return.  ???                           

 It seems you were right about Lexie.  I can't remember either, but it seems she was a doctor then a police... or maybe a police then a doctor.  ???  It WAS a while back.

Well, I guess it runs in the family, Allie's brother Will is gay too. Wonder if Will and Sonny will ever come back?

I do wish that they would have made Xander nicer and not go back to conniving. He is cuter with his hair mussed up. LOL.

I wonder if they will replace Jennifer with someone else?

This time next year I wonder if Abby and Gwen will be sisterly? Things do change on a dime though, like you said about Tripp.

Didn't Lexie go from being a doctor to police? I can't remember back that far. She was helping Abe's brother on cases? Maybe I dreamed it way back then.

Jan did it to frame Belle. She's ALWAYS had it out for her... thinking that if Belle was out of the way, Shawn would be hers!              

I was wondering when Days would do a lesbian storyline.  Ugh.         

   So... Trip has been in "Med School".... what?  One day?  And is already seeing patients?   

   I feel so sorry for Abby.  Her father doesn't believe her (about Gwen's "fall") and it appears that neither does Chad.  After all the lies Gwen has told, you'd think they would learn!  Poor Abby.

I think it showed Jan as the one in Belle's coat. Don't know why she'd do it, but she did wreck Belle's wedding.

I saw this on Soap Hub, not about Charlie.

It looks like Tripp (Lucas Adams) might finally be ready to make his move. However, Allie’s (Lindsay Arnold) spending quality time with someone else – her old pal, Chanel (Precious Way). The two gals are catching up, sharing laughs, and having a few drinks at Julie’s Place.

When Tripp walks in on their happy hour for two, he’s stopped dead in his tracks. He witnesses Allie and Chanel sharing a kiss – on the lips. What does it mean? Tripp’s totally shocked, and viewers likely will be, too. Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for airtimes.

One time, about 30 years ago, when I was very bored... and Alice Horton was still alive... I calculated that if she, and all her daughters, had their babies at age 20.... Alice would have been 110 years old!                                         

 Soaps will always be "soaps"!  How many "CLOSE" family members go.... SOMEWHERE.... not to come home for weddings, funerals or even MENTIONED for decades!  And how many women leave YOUNG children and go off to... WHEREVER... for weeks and months without even mentioning the child!                               

 I told my daughter that although Belle SEEMS to be the murderer... but it COULD have been Gwen.  Maybe she woke up from her coma, slipped out of the hospital (undetected), stole Kate's gun, AND Belle's coat... went to Charlie's apartment (UNDETECTED), shot him, left (again, undetected), returned the coat, went back to the hospital (You got it... undetected!) and pretended to be in a coma again!  Okay... far fetched, but I've seen storylines more far-fetched than that on Days!   LOL                                         
 Or... maybe it was a Mafia hit-man. (No... THAT would make sense!)               

 Yeah... I imagine Paulina WOULD laugh... loudly!  Heck, if I were Paulina, I'd pay Xander 10 million to STAY married to Chanel!

What generation are we up to on Days from Alice and tom...Bill Horton & Laura had Jennifer, she had Abby. Addie had Hope who had Ciara.

When will the next generation com up to being the adults. They grow up fast. I still call Darin Brooks, 'Max' even though he is on some other soap now. Was he one who went upstairs and never came back down? We kid about how they go somewhere and never see until they are teens or adults. Time passes by so fast in real life. Guess I'm feeling old. LOL.

Yeah, we figured Gwen would be pregnant, something to keep her present in their lives.

I've been so lax in watching lately but read the Hub and spoilers or Jim tells me. I need to get back. I wish Mike would come back, but guess it wouldn't be Roarke. I like him. He was on an episode of Sami's 'Hannah Swenson' movie. I keep calling her Sami instead of Alison. She looks older as Sami then she did on the Chronicle Mysteries.

I guess Belle is the latest to be Charlie's killer.

I can't wait until Chanel gets her's.
From spoilers: Chanel is the kinda person who thinks she knows how to work everyone around her. But Xander makes it clear that where he’s concerned, she made a major miscalculation.

As Paulina hopes that Lani might provide her with some assistance, Chanel finds out exactly what kind of man she married when Xander turns the tables on her.

soaps.sheknows.com/days-of-o
ur-lives/s
poilers/


Then I read this elsewhere:
After being bamboozled into marrying Chanel (Precious Way), Xander comes up with a get-even and get-filthy-rich plan: blackmailing her wealthy mother, Paulina (Jackee Harry). And greedy Chanel’s in on the plot.

Xander meets with Paulina and makes an outrageous demand; likely his terms to terminate his marriage to Chanel. “I want $10 million,” he announces to a shell-shocked Paulina. All Paulina can do is laugh – loudly.

I KNEW, as soon as Gwen got Chad in bed with her that she would end up pregnant. (Do these gals not know what the PILL is for?) She KNEW what she was doing... seducing him like that. If she wasn't using protection, then she must have WANTED to get pregnant!
At least Abby (and Chad) know... and Gwen and Jack won't have to keep THAT secret forever!

I remember the name of Jackee's character, it's Paulina... but can't think of the daughter's name. I just hope that if she and Xander become a "couple" (which it looks like will happen).... she won't break his heart! I'd like to see her get put in her place!
I would like "Paulina", but don't like the way she makes such a big deal about race. "Black" this and "Black" that. Her character COULD be rather interesting.

Yeah, it was pretty funny. sami couldn't wait to give John the shot.

I liked when Kayla told Steve to wink and he said he did. She said the other eye. lol. He winked with the eye under the patch. Jim said he read or thinks Xander will be hit on by Jackee's daughter. She thinks he is rich. I couldn't remember names. Jackee was on Sister Sister.

I agree... Kristen has dug herself in way too deep to get out!  I hope EJ WILL come back!  (Even with another actor).           
 But... she shipped Sarah off somewhere (I think)... and I've heard the actress had left the show (but like so many others, they could bring her back as another actress).         

Ciara might remember bits and pieces... but they might all be BAD memories.   ???  I still think that Ciara will remember that she loves Ben... JUST about in time to catch Ben and Claire in bed together!!!         

  I thought the April Fool's episode was hilarious!  The Xander/Bonnie scenes were just GROSS... but I think the actress who plays Bonnie was ENJOYING every minute!!!

I think Ciara is starting to have memories. Hope so.

Jim said someone is coming in to be the new E.J. Did I hear or read that Sami might be having marriage problems? Maybe EJ can come back to town to get his mom out of jail if he realizes that Susan isn't Susan, but Kristin.

I think Kristin is in too deep for Brady to take her back once he finds all the truth. Especially about Sarah.

Yes, it would not have been good to bombard Ciara with ALL the facts right at first, But Kayla should have let her go on believing that Claire was her enemy and that SHE was the one to let Ben into her room. And she needed to tell her that she is missing some time, and that some things have changed.

I still wonder WHY Kristen hasn't let Brady know who she is! They could have a fond "reunion' rather than pretending all the time that she's Susan!

Your right, Kayla should have explained things to her. Ciara should have wondered why Kayla wasn't upset that Ben was there if he was still bad.

Kristen, what can I say? Think the writers believe we're that gullible that these things can happen? Crazy!

It's silly that Kristen has a mask, and wig exactly like Sarah! Okay... she explained that she learned from Dr. Rolf. BUT... she didn't have a whole lot of time! She would have need to do all that in just a couple of hours. AND get back to Basic Black for Sarah's wedding dress. I don't think that Basic Black is located IN the Dimera mansion! She also needed brown contact lens. But I guess she just had a pair of those (that FIT her) handy!

Even with Amnesia... I don't know why SOMEONE (Kayla) couldn't tell Ciara that she has lost a couple of years in time, and that Ben has changed. She wouldn't need to be told EVERYTHING, but she NEEDS to know that she has lost some memory. (I had amnesia a couple of years ago... only "lost" about a half day, and have never gotten it back... but I KNEW I didn't remember things.)

That is exactly what my husband said would happen with Ben and Ciara and Claire.

Kristin kidnapping sarah, like you said before, only in Salem.

When I lived in Ohio we had a Salem. Not much happened there as far as I know. emoticon
