Hello! No booing my Dodgers!! I can't help it if you live up North and like that other team. LOL! Love you!

Well done girls .... my team - the Australian Diamonds netball team are playing in the gold medal match at the Commonwealth Games tomorrow night - whilst the CG's have been a bit of a fizzer, it is a world class final in the netball, should be a fantastic game!

You certainly don't get pumpkins like that round here!

It was fun to read the different teams - thanks for listing them out. I enjoyed that.

Haven't seen a pumpkin that big since we went to the Pumpkin Festival in Circleville, Ohio (every year when I was a kid).
