I used to send e-cards to people a good bit, but haven't done so in a long time. Most of the ones I used, stopped being free, so I stopped using them.

I hope you have a lot of laughs today!

There is time to enjoy them, but unfortunately, I don't have any in the house.

It will make me happy to tell my friend " When I see "your fiancee" I intend to give her a big kiss!

I am not too afraid of alien abduction today because there is no place for them to park with all this snow.

I'm glad that you're safe from the aliens.

I found out that today is also National Ravioli Day. I would enjoy celebrating that!

I did not encounter a Rita's nor a DQ today but hopefully some of our readers had better luck.

Yes, I had ravioli for lunch and am pretty sure there is some bock beer in the fridge for tonight. Cheers!

I didn't have ravioli today, but I am having pizza, which is sort of close. Glad that you were able to celebrate the day.

Think happy thoughts when you wake up today such as strawberries for breakfast.

I'll be glad when the local strawberries start coming in, which will be soon - unless they got damaged by the sub freezing temps we had a couple of weeks ago.

I also prefer fresh local produce whenever possible.

I just heard on the news today that farmers in SC lost 85 to 90 percent of their peach crop. That's awful for them and awful for all of us that love fresh, local peaches. It's a big crop here and really adds to the economy. They didn't mention anything about the strawberry crop.

WOW! That is sad. I suppose it might be a good idea to stock up on frozen or canned peaches while they still can be found- they will certainly cost more later.

I hope to start a small garden when all this snow finally thaws. Homegrown tomatoes beat store bought ones any day.

Yes, losing most of the fresh peaches is sad.

I rarely buy tomatoes at the store, because they have so little flavor. I wish that my yards wasn't getting so shady with all trees (mine and the neighbors) putting out more shade each year. I'll still grow tomatoes, but we don't get a very good yield.
