I am interested in entering. I do have a question. I don’t have many Windstones, and I don’t think I have any that I am willing to part with. If won, is it expected to have a Windstone of some kind available for prize?

Thank you! And thanks to everyone else as well!November 11, 2015 at 5:22 pm #936946
I found this while roaming around the internet. I think this might have originally been an Old Green Mother with some interesting repaint. Damage that has been repainted(?) black can be seen in at least one of the images.

Interested but I don’t think I can participate this year. When I try to look at the links you provided for previous ornament swaps it says “Access denied. You are not authorized to look at this page” 🙁November 6, 2015 at 2:04 am #936742
Ooh, that is an interesting thought! My husband and I are looking for our own place. We recently moved and most of our glass is still at our previous residence (until we have space). We need a better space for the studio. 🙂November 6, 2015 at 12:33 am #936734
Gosh, I don’t remember when I was last active (most of it seems to be in 2011) but I have been a member for 7+ years (according to my account info). My collection is small. I have a Baby White Unicorn and Gargoyle Egg with Eyes (don’t be shocked but I don’t remember if I have any others). Some day, maybe I will be able to afford some dragons. Everything is in storage until we get our own place again.

I see. I do lurk and follow her on FB. Haha! Good thing I don’t have my own place yet. 😉 Nowhere to display lovely items. Haha!

I wish I could have chosen three. 🙁 I don’t like the red but I think pink, blue or black would be nice. I like the black!December 28, 2010 at 3:49 am #834564
We got a good amount of snow here on Long Island as well. I was at work when the snow started yesterday. I went home early enough that the roads weren’t too bad, at least for me. Some poor folks weren’t faring too well with the weather. Spent half the day shoveling today then went and worked for the afternoon. I saw several stuck cars on the way to work this afternoon. The plows hadn’t even plowed the whole street until after 12pm. We had to shovel like six feet into the street so I could get the car out of the driveway. 🙁 Now if the wicked cold winds would stop blowing!December 28, 2010 at 3:41 am #832958
My most wonderful husband in the world bought me a WoW treasure chest! I have only played a little bit (on my sister’s account when she let me create a character) but totally love the game play. Now I just need to find time to install the darned thing. I am in trouble! LOLDecember 10, 2010 at 5:13 pm #833404
Ah! I have been to only one Star Trek convention in 1994. I went when I was in high school and living in Germany (my dad was stationed there with the Army). I actually worked the show so I was able to meet most of the stars and spend some different time with them instead of just being a fan (of which I was as well).
There were a big group of stars there:
Majel Barrett-Roddenberry (Gene Roddenberry’s widow and Nurse Chapel from the Original series and Lwaxana Troy in TNG)- She was lovely! So dedicated to her fans and a sweetheart. She stayed at her table until everyone who wanted an autograph or to meet her had done so.
James Doohan (Scotty)- He liked scotch and he was pretty funny!
Marc Lenard (Sarek-Spock’s father)- A wonderful, sweet man as well. He wanted to know how I (an American teenager at the time) ended up at a German Start Trek convention.
Nichelle Nichols (Uhura)- Beautiful singing voice and very nice.
Robin Curtis (Saavik in ST III and IV)- I didn’t really get a chance to speak with her much but she seemed very nice.
Dwight Schultz (he’s been in a bunch of stuff besides ST)- Didn’t get to speak with him much.
John DeLancie (Q)- I never knew just how tall he was until I was standing next to him. (I’m only 5’3″)
Jonathan Del Arco (Hugh the Borg)- I remember he was very cute.
Robert O’Reilly (Gowron)- I didn’t really get to speak with him either.
Richard Arnold- research consultant and writer for ST
Gates McFadden (Dr. Beverly Crusher)- She was the most elusive of the bunch and kept to herself, her autograph and photo sessions were very brief. They said the camera flashes gave her migraines. I didn’t bother trying to get to her when she was doing autograph sessions since she was one of the stars that more people wanted to see and the lines were ridiculous.
I got to see a reading from one of the Star Trek books “Q-in-Law” acted by Majel Barrett-Roddenberry and John Delancie (as Lwaxana Troy and Q) which was a lot of fun. That is one of the stories they didn’t make into a t.v. episode.
I went to a couple of panels during the convention and we (all of the people who worked the convention) had a dinner with a number of the stars, which was cool.
There were a bunch of German voice actors there as well, non of whom I knew but the ones I met were very nice.
It was quite an experience.
I vaguely remember that George Takei came to a tiny convention at my college but I don’t think I was able to go to it. I remember seeing him but I think I missed the bulk of the convention due to some other commitment.
I would probably go to another Star Trek convention if I had the opportunity. I would so love to meet Patrick Stewart!
Ah, the memories!! 😳December 10, 2010 at 4:35 pm #833224
Etsy- daily (I have a shop but I also lurk a lot 😀 )
Amazon – I go through spurts but I do use it at least once a month on average at least for searches
I have used Froogle but not with any regularity and I occasionally visit DeviantArt but again, not there very often.November 30, 2010 at 5:51 pm #832124
I am here too 😀 I visit fairly regularly (once or twice a week normally). I am not visiting quite as often since I am back to work but I still come here.November 9, 2010 at 7:27 pm #831278
I try valiantly to find gifts for people all year round but I don’t appreciate the “Holiday” decor before Halloween. I don’t like to hear Christmas music in the stores 3 months before the actual holiday. It is especially upsetting to me since I don’t celebrate Christmas. The whole “holiday” season thing seems to me to be much too commercial. My husband feels like boycotting Christmas with his family for this reason.November 5, 2010 at 5:35 pm #831085
We have had a few cars. Most of them were over or we drove them over 100k. If you keep them maintained, many cars will do just fine over that number. I had a 1995 Chevrolet Lumina minivan that had over 400k when I finally had to let it go. It did have a couple of expensive repairs in its life (alternator, a couple of starters, exhaust system, etc.) but it lasted quite a while. The engine was still good when it was retired, other parts were no good.
Our current vehicle is a 2001 Toyota Camry. We just reached 100k on it (it had 79k) when we bought it. Nothing major has broken down yet. The slightly newer vehicles are made to last much longer, well past 100k. Just keep up with the regular maintenance stuff like oil changes and checking fluids, etc.
I would suggest having a mechanic you trust check out the vehicle you are interested in. Or ask what vehicle he/she would recommend. That might help as well.
Good luck with the vehicle mission!
