Hi everyone!

Wow I see a lot of familiar names/faces around here.

I used to live in Oregon but moved in June to Iowa because of a job transfer. So far we like it here. We had our first snowfall this past Saturday.

I live with my fiance' Bob in Granger IA. We live with our two furbabies, a mixed breed dog named Jessie and a housecat named Gizmo.

I have three grown children, Bill 23, Elizabeth 22, and Jacob 21. I have a 2.5 year old grandson who is Elizabeth's son. They all live back in Oregon but I get to fly back frequently to see them.

I am in my last year of graduate school at Oregon State. I am studying Org Develoment/Adult education and training. I can't tell you how excited I am to be finishing this June.

Right now I don't have to much of a garden although I have an acre to create a garden. Last summer's garden was all in containers because I got to Iowa to late to start anything in the ground. I already have my basement "grow operation" in the planning stages so hopefully I will have plants to get me going in the Spring.

Looking forward to chatting with everyone!

So glad you joined us. It sure is nice seeing old friends again and having a place to hang out all together. I think this site is going to be a great place once it's all up and running.
Hope to see you around. Say hi to Bob
Enjoy that snow, we haven't had any yet but it's coming. We are getting rain today but inland is getting snow

Welp I don't think you get much more inland than Iowa lol! I've never lived this far from the ocean before. I am amazed by all the water around us though. We've got rivers and lakes and streams all over the place.

One thing that is very different is there is (so far) much more sunshine than in Oregon. It's weird to have to bundle up and then put on sunglasses lol! I love it!

Hi gardengoddes it is so good to see you here. I bet that big yellow thing in the sky had you worried when you first moved to Iowa lol. I lived in the portland area (Lake Oswego)for a couple of years. I loved almost everything about the area but I couldn't take the weather. See you around the threads.

Hey Debe!

I don't know know how I missed it was you lol! I'm a doink sometimes. Anywho, yes Bob and I are all moved. Slowly but surely getting settled. We are all unpacked but the work of make the new home our own in continuous :)

I have set up an album under my profile with pics of my new home. I'm not sure how to share it other than to let folks know it's out there. Let me know if you can't find it. In the mean time here's a couple of outside shots :)
