    OK got the computer to quit taking to me... {clicked right hand side of mouse by accident and now I see the feature. (Old Age setting in over here ha ha ha ;)

    So I wanted to tell you about my new super AWESOME Second Hand store find. I got a beautiful old galvanised steel shallow container to plant succulent's in. I only paid 3 dollars for it and WOW do I ever love it !!!

    Oh and I am getting a small gathering of followers on U tube, now well over 2K !

    I am mostly on my cell phone these days. I hardly use the computer and not sure how I got cortana.. Your funny @JW .. Spies are everywhere, I heard that. If they want to spy on little old me then at least they might get a good laugh. :)

    It is always great to find a cheap treasure at thrift stores and goodwill stores and of course flea markets .You feel like you won the lottery when you find a cheap treasure

    I really like what you did with the aquarium ! I can see you eventually wrapping the interior supports of the green house, in moss and old wood :)

    I swear I just sit there and stare and dream about what I could do next! Ha ha ha

    Not to bad today as weather warmed a bit, but nothing melting just yet. We got piles of snow everywhere that need to melt away. The snow is so deep out where I take the dogs, hardly anywhere to turn truck or your in a ditch full of snow stuck. I did managed to back right out onto payment. The usual "back road" I usually take is full of deep snowdrifts.

    I have been looking at the long term weather and it looks like by middle of march might be nice and snow should be gone hopefully by then. I wish it was warm enough to get into ponds out back and clean filters and take cold frames down but still too cold so for another week or two the cold frames going to stay up... :{
