this is what i said 

just depends on what kind of clientele you cultivate -- but $300 is not too much for a sculpted cake anywhere esp a big city in georgia -- smaller rural areas have their own stories -- and i just think if the traffic can't bear a $300 sculpture then don't offer them in the smaller areas --

Thanks, I have a problem posting on here. Photos don't show up, emojis, sometimes sentences. Very annoying. Wondered if it's the iPad, iPhone, just doesn't like me. So, I just deleted the post. 

But, the thing that I'm hoping will work out is the house we are looking at has three kitchens, one being a certified commercial kitchen. So, it will be a lot easier to get my cake thing started up again there. And you know, if my price is too high, that's ok. They can go elsewhere.

rychevamp....I’ve had a myriad of problems with CC and my ipad and iphone. CC wouldn’t let me log in for several weeks, and then when I did log in, couldn’t comment. 

Speaking of a dream house.....3 kitchens....what a dream..❤️

It's very annoying. I haven't tried my laptop in awhile, might work there. 

Yeah, we go see it on Monday afternoon. It's got 14 acres, gated long driveway, separate apartment and the commercial kitchen. Wine grapes planted, wine equipment, garden, chicken coop. Crazy, just hope it works out!

Wait Sandra, let me ask...



I think two cats per child will suffice... except for the rascal... NONE for him, unless you want him to return your cat with stars instead of stripes!

See ya! I'll bring dessert for all!... and as we were discussing the other day... no beer please! Thaaaaanks!

wait, wait -- I'm 70 now and no longer well behaved -- but I still wanna come!

so I'm kinda excited -- either this Christmas or next depending on how things go -- but I wanna get in on one of those pop up stores that pop up around the holidays for a week or a weekend -- I'm making 'inventory' now -- gotta tell yah what I just made! although I have several ideas floating as well as this one -- 

y'know cigar boxes can be really lovely cute little wooden boxes -- they come in all different sizes -- there's no smell either btw -- I am collecting them and covering them with beautiful fabrics etc -- AND AND AND -- I devised a way to build a false bottom inside there so I will sell them as treasure boxes with a hidden secret compartment!!! yesterday I worked out all the kinks in my prototype!!! kinda stoked blush whoo hoo -- all my own design stuck_out_tongue

I mean nobody's gonna transfer their safe deposit box contents but just a pretty little fun box for jewelry or a guy's wallet and keys or whatever

Sorry boss, I did not get your explanation of the box, especially the false bottom... will you attach a picture... or a diagram?

By the way what are you planning to bring to the baker's retreat?

No, ReginaCoeliB, I think I will just keep Milo.  He is about as much rascal as I can stand.  I almost spit my water across the screen when I read the comment about your rascal eating catfood if I smeared Nutella on it, lol.  Woman, you are a riot!

Ya'll have been busy. 

Well, after seeing it in person, it may not be the place for us unfortunately. It's in a beautiful area, lots of horse farms around.

But, the rooms are a lot smaller in person, and there is a lot of stairs, which we were trying to get away from. And they were all steep stairs, it was weird. No more vineyard, I guess they had a problem and lost the grapes.  The commercial kitchen had everything in it, the owner was in there making loads of pasta (maybe sells it?). But it was really small and not what I was hoping. It was built off the garage and no other rooms connected. 

And my mother was a little worried about having to take care of 14 acres. 

So, we are still looking. Not much luck so far, we did find the perfect house, but they have postponed putting it on the market, so that refrigerator box I was saying may be home could happen. Don't know if it will hold 6 cats too though. 

Still have a few days of looking to go. May just have to move and mooch off family till we find something.

rychevamp -- wah wah -- too bad about the place - sounded great on paper, but seeing's beIieving huh --

reggie -- if you open the empty box and hold it upside down, nothing will fall out -- however if you know the secret, the bottom will come out and reveal a small hiding place -- unfortunately Secret hiding places and Diagrams are not compatible -- you so funny!!!

reggie, to the retreat I will bring my little doggie to mix it up wonderfully with the ten thousands cats -- he has a great respect for cats having been trained by the best -- or should I say whacked if he gets too close -- I will bring my appetite, some sugar, gluten, egg, and dairy free goodies and domino's gluten free pizza -- see what I mean about the no longer well behaved part -- my wild streak Includes carry out pizza -- especially since you guys are serving cat food with nutella -- hahahaha

thank you, sandra!!!

Ahhhh shucks rvyechamp....that’s too bad. When my son and daughter-in-law were house hunting, was amazing how many houses looked sooo big from the artful photography. Especially the kitchens. There’s nothing quite the same as seeing a house up close and personal. I don’t know about house sales in USA, but in Canada it’s become absolutely INSANE!! People want more room in there houses because there working from home. And bigger backyards for hanging out. So Torontonians are coming to our area and jacking up the prices. They are bidding $20,000 to sometimes 90-1000,000 over asking price. I am so very concerned about my good friend and next door neighbour. She’s a widow and she has been working on her house to sell since September. She should have sold 2-3 years ago, but she wasn’t emotionally ready. She just has the basement to tidy up, and the sign can go on the lawn. I know her house will sell in less than a week. Probably will sell within 48 hours. That’s the easy part. The biggest dilemma is actually finding a house, that’s affordable for her  and that someone doesn’t outbid her for it. That happened to my son/dil 3 x’s. Got outbid and lost. It’s almost a given now that you must go minimum of $20,000 above asking, or you won’t get the house. You couldn’t pay me to buy under these circumstances. Unfortunately, my neighbour financially cannot afford to live in her house anymore. Too expensive to maintain, and too much upkeep. I’ve been praying that everything will work out for her.

when my sister bought her house, she was outbid over forty times in southern california — eventually she told her real estate agent what she wanted and bought her hour sight unseen so she could finally get it over with — I think it might have been brand new, can’t remember — but it was almost new at least —

but there was no time to go look at anything — if she went on a look see the place would be long gone — crazy — never heard of such a thing —

Well K8memphis/Kate  I know that I know my friend/neighbour needs a very experienced real estate agent. We have a gentleman at our church whose been in real estate for over 30 years. He actually sold the house beside my neighbour 4 years ago. She needs someone who can navigate this difficult process. Part of the difficulties here is the bidding process. It’s not fair. Say there are 5 bids on a home, yours is one of them. You, nor your agent have absolutely no idea what the other 4 bids are. So you have no opportunity to match/ go higher. It’s kinda like a auction. But at a auction, you can here the bid, and you have so much money, and you can decide whether to continue or pull out. My son and dil lost a house by a mere $1000. Had they known they would have matched the bid and above.
