Itzl AlertingAs you can see by Itzl's concerned look, this group is for us to check in at to let people know we are alive, doing OK, and not affected by such things as heat, blizzards, floods, wild fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, power outages, or other such things that could keep us off DKos. It's also so we can find other Kossacks nearby for in-person checks when other methods of communication fail - a buddy system. Members come here to check in. If you're not here, or anywhere else on DKos, and there are adverse conditions in your area (floods, heatwaves, hurricanes, etc.), we and your buddy are going to check up on you. If you are going to be away from your computer for a day or a week, let us know here.  We care!

If you'd like to be part of the Itzl Alert Network, please leave a comment asking to join, or send us a message asking to join. We'd love to have you. The bigger our network, the less likely someone will be stranded all alone.

There's not a single room in my house large enough for this queen-sized lounge chair, but I do lust after it. Not the fabric (which is a leopard print, so not my house style, even with its eclectic Roadside Reject decor), but the chair (sofa?) was so very comfortable and I know Itzl and Xoco would love it to pieces.


Ah, well, I can start a new picture scrapbook of the rooms and houses I would like.

What, you don't have scrapbooks full of pictures and magazine clippings of things you'd like in your house that you could never afford and even if you could, you wouldn't have the space for it? And of floor plans that you've altered because the clipping isn't quite right? Or of fashions you like but know you'll never ever wear? Or of gardens you love but lack land for replicating?

Am I the only one who clips pictures of fantasy lifestyles and preserves them in scrapbooks?
