  1. My family are MacGregor connected too, Kathy. Perhaps we're distantly related? Lol. As well of of the Highlander Stewarts. According to my grandmother, we are directly linked to Rob Roy, though previously we thought our Stewart line was with the royal Stuarts and thought someone just changed the spelling over time. I've not been to Scotland, yet...but it's on my "to-do" list, as it were. Though, I can't vote, I've definitely been watching the news like a hawk and personally, I'd be very happy if the 'Yes' goes in their favor. Ultimately, it's about what is best for Scotland in the long term.
  2. Looks like Gerry has changed his mind since his last mention of it when he said he was on the fence and not yet convinced it was a good thing. I wonder what convinced him? Really, REALLY love this video, and I absolutely need that song on my playlist.
  3. It has been far too long. I don't even know where to start, or what I even have let you gals know what's happened. Life got...crazy. My young nephew who was battling Menkes Disease did pass (as we expected he would) back in 2011 at 20 months, and it's been a long road uphill since. I was walloped with a severe case of agoraphobia (Nim's Island irony, anyone?) which I am still battling through very very slowly. I have yet to go out by myself just yet, and still need someone to come with me even to go to the store, but....I can drive into the city now, and earlier this year, I went to Comic-Con,
  4. Thank you GALS. I did receive a few smiles, and even a few giggles at your last post, Em. Looks like I'll have to remember names all over again. I would have replied to the thread earlier. But had a lot of computer drama the last 3 days and had to buy an entirely new laptop...twice. But I got upgraded to Word 2013 CC(was previously using 2003) and Windows 8, so it's going smoothly now, and I can get back to my writing. Thank goodness I thought ahead this time and backed up all my files on an external weeks ago - in preparation for a crash. Looks like I did it all in time. Em: Your family
  5. *giggles* Oh poor Antoine. I think I'd be just as scared if that were me too. I'm glad it was nothing too serious.
  6. Wow it's been a while since I've been here around you lovely, GALS. Life sort of threw me a few curve balls since the last time I was among you. My nephew, Carter, I'm not sure I mentioned, finally passed away April 15th 2011 (Wow, has it really been that long???) Personal dramas decided to then pile up on me and I sort of turned into this frolicking mass of crazy. I'm at the end of crawling out of it now, I think. It's just taken me a while and apparently my subconscious decided to go on a "me-time" break - which is something I don't do often. So the last few months have had me making a lot
  7. Happy birthday xx

  8. I don't really mind when people call me Amy - I'm sorry, I should have mentioned that. It just depends on the people and how much I trust them. In high school, I wanted to change my whole name and I'd signed my poetry with it - I was teased mercilessly for it. Lol. A lot of my screen names online (practically where I live) seem to have a "name" in them. This one, and the actual sign-in name "GraceAndShadow" so it's a thing where people seem to think my name is either Melodie, or Grace. Lol. I love to meet new people too...especially on GALS. Everyone, no matter new or old is so friendly it
  9. Elissa, your little kitten it VERY cute! Ginger kittens have always reminded me of Milo & Otis, though I haven't had one for a few years but two dogs I think is quite enough at the moment. At least until Jasmine gets out from her puppy years. Though I'm hoping she does calm down soon, as I'm looking for her to become a therapy dog for children in hospital. If she is too boisterous, Ori is calm enough at the moment without the specialty training (though he'll have to do that first either way) to take her place. Jasmine is VERY much a people person...they both are, only she just does not kno
  10. Oh my dear Frannie, I've thought a lot about you these past few days since I heard. I really wish I could say more than I'm sorry - it seems so little compared, and I know it is devastating for you, I've been there too. I'm glad you're able to keep busy, I've been worried about you immensely. Please be gentle on yourself and know I'm sending lots of love, hugs and prayers. And thank you all for your kind words. My head is still cloudy at the moment. As expected as it was, it wasn't this expected...if that makes sense. At least, not as well as he was doing. I hope though, that the fuzziness wi
  11. It took me a while, but I guess it's time for me to stop burying my head into the sand and come out of hiding. Although, it doesn't feel like such a good idea to the pouty side of me right now. Heh. It's so great to see all you GALS again, and some new faces I think I see: A lot has gone on with me in the last little while - but I really don't have the emotional strength to run through it again. One positive thing though, is that I have a new little addition to the family. Her name is Jasmine, and she -like Ori- is a Golden Retriever. She also -like Ori- has been a Godsend to me these last
  12. Thank you so very much, May. I am sorry to hear of your losses as well. Perhaps it is just me, but I seem to focus a lot around the losses in my life - which I know isn't healthy, but they've been ones that have hit me hard so when another comes along it's almost like I sit and wonder 'when does it end?' I'm getting through the days slowly, and while I cannot attend the funeral this Friday, my brother has arranged for a webcast set-up so I can still be there in some small way. Unforunately though, with the Easter break being just after the arrangments, I wasn't able to send my letters and gift
  13. I apologize for not being here for a while. Things took quite an upheavel in my life in the last few months. In January of last year, I lost my fiancee and wasn't dealing with it very well. In addition it's been very hectic. Some might remember that back in 2009 my sister-in-law gave birth to her forth child, my nephew...who at 5 weeks old was diagnosed with a very rare and incurable genetic disease called Menkes Syndrome. It pains me to have to say, that last week on April 15th, he passed away. Four days after my would-be wedding day. He was 20 months and made a miracle after the doctors ha
  14. Well that might explain why it wasn't in the gallery. A pity too, because it's a gorgeous photo. I wonder where the original is from then? Thanks, Suzie. I spent over 5 hours trying to find it even going through google images to no avail. If anyone can help me find the original, I'd be most grateful! I wanted to use the pose in a wallpaper I'm working on. With or without the deckchair prop.
  15. Hey, Gals! It's been a while since I've been here, I know. I've been telling myself it was time I got my keester back here, but real life has gotten in the way a bit. Also, can someone help me find out where this pic is from??? It's killing me and I'd really like a proper quality one that isn't screencapped from a Youtube video. Lol. I searched and searched the gallery, but I couldn't find it anywhere. BUT, onto other news, on Friday morning I will have a new family member ariving. Her name is Jasmine, and she's now 8 weeks old. Golden Retriver just like Ori. In October while my brother
