Just finished another synopsis; one for All The Weyrs Of Pern - although I think I might need to go over it again and add more detail! Even better, I found a summary/analysis of Dragonsblood on another wiki - which I had previously used to write the synopses for MHOP, DF and DQ - which means I'll probaby be able to write a synopsis for that within a day!

Link to synopses: http://pern.wikia.com/wiki/User:AMCAlmaron

Books Left:
*Dragonsdawn
*Chronicles of Pern: First Fall - P.E.R.N Survey is done, Dolphin's Bell just needs the synopsis written, and the rest haven't been read yet.
*Dragon's Kin
*Dragon Harper - methinks I'll do this and Dragon's Kin soon; they're shorter than the others.
*Dragonsblood - I'll probably write this one tonight.
*Dragonheart
*Dragongirl
*Nerilka's Story - analysis started, and should only take a few hours once I figure out the narrative.
*The White Dragon - barely started
*The Skies of Pern

UPDATE: Dragonsblood's now done!

Went with Mom & Tammy (sister) to the Regon One Star Trek Summit in Pigeon Forge Tn.
I mainly went for the ride, I don't like Star Trek.
After driving for 6 hours we found the hotel & got checked in. We walked into the room the smell about floored us. It smelled like a male cat had sprayed all over the room. We reported the smell. The said they could use a room deoderizer machine, but we had to be gone for an hour. We went to the store. When we got back the room still stank. They sprayed some cherry smelling deoderizing spray. The smell was better, but it made my eyes water. They did not have a room available with hand bars around the toilet. We were stuck in that room.
The next morn. the room smelled again. This time they use the machine for 6 hours and then cleaned it with strong cleaner. Again we could not be in the room. We had planned to eat lunch in the room. I was ready for lunch before we could go into the room so I had to buy lunch. Mom & Tammy cooked in the room then took it down stairs to eat. Mom talked to the manager & got one night taken off the bill.

We decided to stay an extra night at a different hotel. One that was half the price & much better. It had two GOOD queen size beds. The other hotel had a queen bed & a pull out couch that should have been goten rid of years ago.

I spent the day winow shoping in Pegeon Forge & Gatlinburg. It was nice. There were a TON of dragon stuff. Most of it not affordable. At a flea market I found 2 dragon "Little Poeple" figures which I HAD to buy. I also got a dragon pen.

Sunday night we went on a drive through the Smokey Mountains. Kibby & I had taken the same road when we went a few years ago. We had seen a lot of bears and other wild animals. This time we did not see any animals except for 2 deer & 1 turkey. The road is one way and is very crowded with others looking to see wild animals. I kept stopping and pointing out the window like I had seen something. Every other car behind me would stop & look for a long time trying to figure out what I had seen. It was very funny.

Tammy won a scavenger hunt, thanks to me. Mom & Tammy both caught a tribble in the tribble throw. Their ship got runner up for ship of the year. Mostly because they got tired of Mom's ship winning every year because of all the chirties they donate to and other stuff they do. Over all it was a fun trip even with the bad room.

I'm sorry to have to report that we had to put Smokey to sleep, on Wed. He had a liver problem we think, and it was to far advanced to treat

He is the one in on the left hand side of the link of the image Penut RIP and Reggie is still with us, he is 16 years old and missing his brother, Smokey

for Ginny.

It has been a long time since I have been here. My spare room still looks horrible and spewed it's guts into the hallway for us to trip over. I realise that sounds all wrong but for those who've seen photos of my spare room will understand what I've meant. But by the same token, we've cleared a substantial amount of stuff out of it either through ebay, garage sales (that's yard sales for those who are not sure what I mean), op shops (thrift shops in the USA) or using the back yard fireplace aka a 44 gallon drum when it's cold like it is now due to our winter - the ashes going towards our compost heap which our garden appreciates at a latter date or ultimately binning it for the council to take away. Otherwise, we are all good and welcome to new members who have since shown up in the meantime. Have a great day all.

My baby sister is graduating from high school this weekend. It's making me feel old because it was only 7 years ago that I graduated from high school. I suppose it doesn't help to think that I'll be 37 when the next grand-kid on my father's side of the family graduates from high school. I'm not even going to think about my other 3 other cousins, plus a new one on the way......

Hubby & I both felt old when Kibby went to her first prom. With a date and everything.
I can not believe she will be 17 in Aug. Where does the time go.

We have a new pet. Not a cat. We have a solid white rabbit with blue eyes. A few weeks ago we saved a tiny black rabbit from Oden. (Kibby's cat) It lived for 3 days. Not sure why that one died. I think it might have been stress. That one was wild.

We got a rabbit that is larger than the other one was & is tame. It is very use to people. At first the cats were not sure what to think of George. He would jump right up to them & sniff their noses. If they were in his way he would jump on top of them. He has no fear. Now the cats seem to like him. They will play with him very gently, no claws. Ebony, Hubby's dog, watches them. If she thinks a cat is getting to rough she will nose the cat away and stand between the cat and rabbit. We are very careful not to leave George alone in the same room with the cats.

Woohoo! Just needed to say I've been making much better progress on the various Pern synopses; there's only five left now!

*Dragonsdawn
*Dragonheart (nearly half done)
*Dragongirl
*Sky Dragons (which I'll need to order first)
*The White Dragon (1/3 done)

In addition to that, the Wiki's really starting to look great - although it's still a work in progress!

My niece has been having a lot of problems mentely. She has finially got it though her head that the accident that killed her brother, she was in the car, was NOT her fault and that it is ok to let Jeremy go. It does not mean that she did not love him. This has taken 5 years for her to really understand.

Kibby got a red ribbon at 4H state competiton & congress. She was hopping for a blue. She left out one part and talked to fast (as usual). I did get to watch the presentation and am not sure why they marked her down for a couple of thing.

She had a lot of fun at congress & wantst to go back next year. One of the days she was there they had a college caree day. She has decided she wants to go to either Virginia Tech or Sweet Brier college and get a degree in creative writing.

Congrats to Kibby! Are there any free/cheap workshops she could attend? I do know that there are published authors with dyslexia so I say go for it, if she's prepared to work that hard.

We moved at the end of June, but I only got my computer back this morning. Sorry for the long absence. The new house is going to be wonderful once we get everything in place, but that's going to take a while yet...

Just recently I decided I'd had enough of waiting for the Dragon Riders video game to come cheap and I bought a copy on eBay! It arrived yesterday and I only just finished it a few hours back - I wasn't so impressed at the start, but as time went on I rather enjoyed it!

Either way, I'll have plenty of information to update the Pern Wiki with at some point - all marked as being of uncertain canonicity, of course. And at last I managed to get a good look at the "Temple" on Ierne Island...it's nothing of the sort; it's just a normal - albeit ancient - Hold but with a few pillars outside and some stained glass windows. If you ask me, it was once Uppsala Stake.

And for those of you who never got to play it, never fear! I've just written a synopsis for it! http://pern.wikia.com/wiki/Dragon_Ri...nicles_of_Pern (with a lot of help from this walkthrough http://www.gameboomers.com/wtcheats/...riderspern.htm which I used to ensure I got everything in order...although I might need to have another play of the game to make sure I got everything...).

Either way, I'll have plenty of information to update the Pern Wiki with at some point - all marked as being of uncertain canonicity, of course. And at last I managed to get a good look at the "Temple" on Ierne Island...it's nothing of the sort; it's just a normal - albeit ancient - Hold but with a few pillars outside and some stained glass windows. If you ask me, it was once Uppsala Stake.

And for those of you who never got to play it, never fear! I've just written a synopsis for it! http://pern.wikia.com/wiki/Dragon_Ri...nicles_of_Pern (with a lot of help from this walkthrough http://www.gameboomers.com/wtcheats/...riderspern.htm which I used to ensure I got everything in order...although I might need to have another play of the game to make sure I got everything...).
Are you interested in a walk through document. I must have it somewhere on the computer.

Sorry to hear that Ginny. At least he was 16 years old and must have had a great life with you.

I have mostly been babysitting Melissa's (oldest niece) kids. She has been in the phyc ward off and on for the last 2 months. She has not wanted any of the father of the 3 kids to know what is going on. She is afraid they will try to get full custady(sp?). The oldest's father is try to get Madison full time. He really does not want her. Melissa applied for help with social services for rent and electricity. S.S. has gone to the one father who is SUPPOSE to be paying child support. Now he wants Madison full time. He just want to get out of paying for child support.

That must be very hard for her. I can not understand those fathers, they put there frustation (or hate?) above the children. My daughter and her partner saparated two years ago, but share parenting in a very smooth way, always putting the well beeing of my granddaughter at first. We are not happy with the situation, but it is working so far.

With Matt it all about the money. Melissa has always let any of the fathers have their child when they have wanted them. She also has never done anything about the back child support. After 7 years social services want him to pay court ordered child support and now he wants her.

Went shopping to pick up stuff for French dip sandwiches. It is what Kibby wants for her birthday tomorrow. I can't believe she will be 17.

Had to take the rabbit, George, to the vet twice. He needs to go back Friday. He got a scratched eye. It looks better, except he now has a lump on his eye. The vet is not sure what the lump is. We may have to take him to a rabbit specialist. The closest one is 2 hours away.
