That's fantastic! I think I'm gonna start doing that. You're jigsaw looks great btw.

Nice jigsaw there, Del. My girlfriend loves them, too, while I'm not so good at them (I still like jigsaws). How many pieces does your world map have?

I'm sure that 3 years ago, when I was looking online for a big jigsaw for my girlfriend, I found a 8000 pieces one in plain white.
Can't find it anymore, though.
Now, that would drive any person bonkers, I think.

Jigsaw looks fab del.

there's a game that I can load on my netbook
that I was forced to delete due to lack of diskspace
that can create a jigsaw from almost any picture on the web

Only now realized that it was for me. Thank you very much. I might have use for that recipe in the near future.

Are you sure it wasn't a create your own jigsaw rather than just a white one?

Yes.It was probably intended for making your own, though.

:D I might put up a couple. Have to figure out how far up to the present day I want to go, and how many will fit on the card. I'm sure I won't even make a dent on it, but the older pics are a much lower resolution than the newer ones.

I'm smiling for two reasons today. I took Ava to her last follow up appointment at the orthodontist. About a year ago she had her expander taken out and now that all of her adult teeth are in they wanted to make sure there was no crowding. It was obvious that her teeth look great, but still wonderful to get the official word that she does NOT need braces. :D

The second reason... the technician we saw before the doctor had noticed on Ava's medical records that she'd had her tonsils and adenoids removed several years ago to correct a severe case of obstructed sleep apnea. She asked me about how it went and told me that her daughter has the same thing. They're going through exactly what we went through (which was an absolute nightmare) and I was able to tell her how much it helped Ava and how far she's come since. When we were going through it, we didn't know anyone who had experienced anything similar or who had even heard of it. It was so wonderful to be able to tell her how much it helped Ava.

Sorry to double post, but I forgot something. What also made me smile was Derek telling me about his day at work yesterday. The person who did his job previously was warning him about how stressful things could get and that it was very much an IT position. As far as he can tell he'll just be approving or declining work orders then following up to see if they've been completed. We were both about doubled over laughing. In his previous job he would be on call 24/7 for a data center with over 1000 servers, sometimes taking a call in the middle of the night, sometimes traveling to work offsite for a week getting a new data center up and running. It's the difference between being in the trenches and being at home reading about it in the newspaper. Then he tells me that he finished up early and just played pinball until it was time to leave. This company is committed to making the top 100 best places to work and so far they're making our list! He soooo deserves this. :D
