Here on my side of the St. Lawrence River, we had to rescue the deer. a HUGH herd of them all got their tongues frozen to the tree branches!! ALL THAT ICE.   :P Picture that!! and My dog decided he was going to use the commode for the rest of the winter Which isn't so bad, unless he beats me to the bathroom in the A.M., he takes sooo long to read the paper!!! :tickedoff:

The views out side are fantastic, and I wish I could figure out how to depict the ice coating on the trees. All the tree bend with their coat of ice covered with clean snow is awesome.  For now I'll continue to  :fight: with the cosmos and wait for the next replay.  I plan on finishing "cosmos #1 today and starting #2. 

By the by, I am ordering paper from Jerry's artarama along with masking fluid.. They are having a major clearance sale The paper is ( pardon the spelling) Fabrenos* (sp) Acquarello  watercolor studio 50 sheet pads at about 55 cents (US) per sheet.[11 x 14] they are a little smaller then the sheets Dennis is using. They are archival with 20% cotton and the "bad stuff" taken out of the wood fiber. 

Lillian and Claude: be careful and keep watch for the snow snakes

Eftpower1, you're so full of..., well, hey!  You're confusing our dear friends from the warmer parts of our world!
 :2funny: :2funny:

Dear friends in the warmer parts of the world, I'm here to tell you that there may only be two real truths to the former post.  One is that definitely, many of the trees and bushes are bending low under that beautiful weight of ice and snow.  The other is that Jerry's may have a sale on watercolor paper.  I must check it out for myself to be sure!

One sure thing is that I get a lot of laughs while I'm learning more about art from the most reliable ones  :smart: :smart: (who else but Nolan and Dennis!)  I'm looking forward to the monochrome replay.

Now Lillian!!!

This story is true: When one of our older kids (in his 30"s now) was a kid and the temperature  was  -10 F. , he, for some reason, kissed the door knob  on the front door of the Catholic Church and froze his lips to the knob. Luckily he was released with out permanent damage. That was one time I bet he was praying for ....HOLY SMOKE :yippee:

And yes Jerry's is having a sale..(even Dennis says so :angel:)

Now about those snow snakes.....

Back to the center(s) of the cosmos :2funny:
regards to all

Eftpower1, now you're making sense!   :2funny: :2funny:

I'm getting a big kick out of your true story about the kid getting his tongue froze to the doornob. 

In my early grade school years, I attended an 8 grade in one classroom country school that was beside a church.  At recess, I, for some silly reason had the urge to see if getting your tongue stuck to metal in the freezing weather was really true.  I was almost late getting back from recess.  I managed to breathe enough hot air out to release my tongue and saved myself the embarrassment of getting rescued.  My tongue was pretty sore for a while.   :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

Now back to the cosmos.   :)

Hey!  The replay for lesson 2 is here.  I've been waiting for it, expecting to get a notification in my email!

I should have checked earlier.  Oh well, I'm done with cosmos for now,  :run:   to catch the replay.   :)

Hi, Nolan  :surrender: Sorry to bother you but for unknown reason I'm not able to book third part of watercolour course. When I click the 'BOOK' button the site sends me to a page which is completely blank. When I return to the PB TV the 'BOOK' button doesn't exist at all  :confused:

Magda, I may be wrong, but if you booked at the beginning, I think it is good for all the upcoming free wc lessons.  Of course, Nolan will "confirm or deny" this. If it's not correct, then I had better figure it out,too. I don't want to miss any!

That's correct. You only need to book once for the course. O0 Your name will be on record for the full course.

Phew...!  :sweat: Thank you. I was confused because it worked with the second part. But if Dennis says so I'm ok with it  :D Gee, guys, I wish I could say 'See you on Sunday!' but I don't know whether the new server is going to receive me or not  :2funny:

look out for an email shortly, we will do a load test 48 hours before the actual class, so fingers crossed

Nolan,  please note --

January 20th Eastern Standard time and New York time is Friday, not Thursday!  You had me  :confused:  for a bit.   

In your email, you said, "An easy time to remember and do this would be 48 hours before the actual class. "

That clarifies it. 

I'll do my best to be with you on Friday, at 2 pm, EST.   :thankyou:

I'm sorry I missed the test yesterday.  I'm happy everything was working well for you and I'm looking forward to seeing you and Dennis at the next watercolor class.

Sorry, Dennis.   :blush: I should have told Magda it would be you responding, not Nolan. After all, you are the wc  :smart:

Dennis, just wondering if there is anything we need to prepare for lesson nr 3?

 :)

I believe that everything will go down 100% for the next lesson  :gl:
