Although I do not post often, I do spend time reading everyone else's posts. It is a wonderful place to escape the world's pressures -- if only for a small bit of time. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am so happy that you were able to make this site work. Thank you so much for everything you do here.
Hello friends on the other side of the world . . . !
Would you believe there are some fires still burning in Victoria?
We are all hoping for milder weather and even a lovely storm to soak the countryside down there. So many native wildlife perished as well. Many animals found were so badly burned they had to be put down. Very sad.
I've heard that quite a few koalas and other tree living animals are stuck up in trees too scared to come down.
Many native species are now endangered as they have lost their habitat and may not be able to reproduce the numbers they once had.
So still a sad, sad time for people down here.
I am so very sorry to hear about the fires still burning. Hopefully, you are safe and the rain will come soon.
Hi All -
Just wondering if the economic downturn has affected anyone's sold-buying experience.
As for me - I passed on my usual Harrod's solid shopping. Just couldn't see doing it this year when my retirement money appears to have disappeared. Have also seen a few harder-to-find solids NOT selling well on ebay, even with lower prices. I regretfully had to let a couple of those sell (or not) without my bids.
Just wondering about the rest of the EL collectors.
It is the economy that is stopping me from buying any of the pieces this season. Perhaps, it is because I am unable to buy at this time that I think these are some of the best pieces in a long time. I am confident that when the economy improves and if the time comes that I am able to buy again, I will be able to acquire the ones I am passing on this year. Happy Holidays.
