    Who's here?

    As it's X-mas Eve, Eve - I'm just wondering who is here and active on the site,

    I've done a similar thread the past 2 years. I want to see who still visits this site in the cold, pools closed or 'unswimmable' months

    If you see this, just say 'hi' or


    Merry, Merry and Happy, Happy to all

    Re: Who's here?

    Happy Holidays!

    I'm here every day, just glancing at the topics, checking to see if I can help out. TFP is part of my morning routine, coffee, e-mail, news, wake up, get on with my day. And sometimes in the evening just before I shut down the computer.

    Cold here, 14 F right now. We did all our shopping and will hunker down tomorrow in anticipation of a special Christmas Eve dinner and exchanging presents. We tend to keep presents to each other very low key - our money goes to educational and dog related charities.

    We have the second season of Chef! and thank you, Chef Benfield, for making me aware of that series. It is absolutely wonderful! - and are looking forward to watching some of the eps.

    Merry Christmas, TFP!

    And, per the National Weather Service, you're going to get it, too... why is it that every time I venture to central Florida the sun takes a holiday and an arctic front claims Disney World? Geesh, gonna have to pack a coat and long underwear to endure my vacation. So, what else is new?

    See you all in a week.

    Re: Who's here?

    I'm here and pretty new to the site.

    Our pool is still under construction and today they painted the boulders in and around the pool. They have mostly been working on the front and back landscaping over the past few weeks and will start the coping on Monday after the holiday. We might have water in the pool by next month but we are in no hurry.

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone.

    I really enjoy this site!

    First Christmas in Florida! Merry Christmas to all. Hoping to fire up the heat pump and swim on New Year's With this weather, though, it might really take us all week to get the water up to a swimmable temp.

    Didn't you just come back from Kauai? And now, Florida?

    You know, I've been thinking . . . with all the traveling you do surely you need an assistant, someone to pack and repack your gear, polish the scopes for star gazing, carry water. Whatever. Why not let me help you out with some of that? I speak three languages, can drive a stick shift, can drive on the left, am excellent at haggling for the best price, know how to snare and fish. I mean, I would be a real asset to you on these trips to warm places, really!

    Have a great time!

    Re: Who's here?

    I'm obviously a new guy here - and still about a week away from a contract. So it should be no surprise I'm online - and pouring through almost every post, gleaning info as I go.

    I wish a happy and safe holiday time for all!

    Merry Christmas from a just about to get hit Kansas City. Weatherman is calling for 2-9 inches of the white stuff before tomorrow morning....a White Christmas...something rather unusual here, but the 16 degree temp they are calling for is VERY usual. I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday and gets everything the wish and dream for!
