    Good to hear from you. I am diggin’ Rick’s star blocks and I bet he will too. ALWAYS great to see Travis the “quad-pod” dog. The purple and yellow-green batiks are great colors for a fun block.

    Thanks for a great 2 years! I have enjoyed listening you you. You make me laugh at least once an episode.

    Having your son use his laptop downstairs is a reasonable rule. My boys are 22, 20 and 15, and I have to tell you that any teenage boy worth his salt can circumvent a filtering system and find a way to look at inappropriate content online. Boys are curious about sex and will find a way to see naked women any way they can. If not at your house, at a friend’s. I would have preferred my kids look at still pictures, but you would be shocked to find out what is available. in video form.

    The laptops our school systems provide to the kids have an undeletable hilstory, so they can montior the sites the kids go to . Even so, the majority of the kids know how to get around the school’s filter and can access online games that don’t show up in the undeletable history as a gaming site.One of my sons figured out how to remotely access our home computer from his school computer so that he could play some game on it during English class.

    I think it is perfectly fine for a teenager to have his own computer, but he should allow you to watch him using it and check the history. And, BTW, I just spilt water on my new laptop in Feb., so I feel your son’s pain. I’m trying to remember to always use a cup with a lid around my computer.

    Sorry this is so long! I didn’t intend it to be, but wanted to back you up. It’s a good idea for your son to keep his computer downstairs. You are not the only mom who has this rule, even though he may try and make you feel like you are.

    Happy Podiversary, and thanks for keeping up the podcast despite your busy life! I am one of those that often comment in my head, and think about posting, but usually never connect that thought when I am in front of a computer. Congratulations on the podcast, and on your beautiful quilts. I really enjoy watching them evolve.

    PS I forget to thank you for posting that photo of the very cute Travis. He can bark in the background anytime. I don’t mind.

    Two years of discipline for a time consuming discourse. It has been grand and thank you for seeing this podcast as worthwhile ’cause we, the listeners, certainly love it and you. I loved the description of your dancing family and now your independent teen ready to dance on his own. Sometimes I see young families and I “see” my very grown children in them and while I don’t wish for those crazy days back, I wish when I was young I really knew how fast it was going. Have a good week Frances.

    I like the idea of being interviewed while cooking …or quilting …but not while working, since I already feel like I’m on stage.

    I know what you mean about the computers; Katie can vanish into Facebook on hers. Eric doesn’t have a computer but can check his E-Mail on his DS-3 [only in the last year or so has the DS-3 been allowed out of my room and into his possession.]

    Good Luck with all the stars!

    All the best.

    I’m new-ish to your podcast and have similar starts and stops when it comes to quilting projects. I like your liberated stars. It is going to be a handsome quilt. Congrats on two years of podcasts – keep it up, girl!
