OK, not sure if the poll is going to show up or not, Sisters,,,

but we're not THAT huge a group that I can't add the votes up,,,,,

we are voting on:

1 bear or 2 bears, please tell me your vote!!!!

The advantage of 2 bears is that the wait would be shorter,,,,

The advantage of 1 bear is that we'd all be on the same "page" so to speak,,,,,,but some of you would be waiting monthssssss for the bear,,,

Your choice, majority rules!!!!

So please VOTE if you're in this group!

Thanks, Holly

Hello Everyone! I voted too and bookmarked this link in my favorites for future use. I will also keep checking the blog to see where the bears are located. HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!

I am not really good at figuring out blogs and all this tech stuff......so keep asking the questions you are helping me learn this stuff. I can not even think of what to ask! LOL

Sisters,,,,

I have adopted our bears!!!!!!!

Now let me tell you that there MUST BE a shortage of bears needing adoption, because I went to several stores LOOKING to adopt bears and finding very very little,,,,,

I wanted bears small enough to fit in padded envelopes or 2 day priority envelopes,,,I didn't want people to have to spend large amounts of money to mail them,,,,,or risk sending them UPS ground (which takes FOREVER) because they were large,,,,

i wanted the beanie baby type,,,,,

Oh, I found turtles and flamingos and SNAILS,,,,but bears?? NOPE!!!

I FINALLY located some bears last night at about 8pm!!! however,,,,,,,,,

um,,,,,,we're adopting multi-culturally!!!!!!

yep, that's right,,,,,But I know this group is very multi-cultural, and would be fine with it,,,,

sooooooooo,,,,,,,,,,,,

We have one Chinese Bear (Panda) and one Australian Bear (Koala)!!!!

Yes Maams! We are now Multi-Cultural,,,,,,if we weren't already

I will post pics in the afternoon today when I have my son to help me (MY puter is broken and I don't know how to download on HIS puter!) And then maybe paula can help us download to the Blog!!!

Now we have to think about names!!!!!

BEAR LIST ORDER:

OK, To be as FAIR as absolutely possible (and this is NOT as easy as it sounds!!!) I have gone back through every PM I received and every post in the original thread and counted from the VERY FIRST INTEREST that you had. I've done it this way because I may have RESPONDED FIRST to posts that I got AFTER others. Therefore, the only fair way seems to be to document the TIME which you PM'd or posted your wish to be included in the Travelling Bear.

SOOOOOOO,,,,The list goes as follows,,,

1.CommaHolly (because I have both bears right now, LOL)

2. NAF 4/5 1104pm

3. Scatter 4/6 302am

4. tmgarren 425am

5. Raquellie 432am

6. Kitswpa 514am

7. Crafty Sprinkles 538am

8. Piratefan21 5:39am

9. MotherGoose 549am

10. Provinca 627am

11. .~*~Kathie~*~ 755am

12. Mommy2Four 828am

13. Melissadam 851am

14. Eltringham 953am

15. CraftyCindy 222pm

16. DawnInAz 620pm

17. GelidyGelato 644pm

The others on the list have chosen to have their bear at a SPECIFIC TIME, and have, in essence, given UP their RIGHTFUL PLACE in lieu of a SPECIFIC place on the schedule,,,,

They are:

Flightobl (June 16-29)
Ladybing Tammy (June 27-July 4) thank goodness for 2 bears!!
Fargomutt (Aug 26-???) Please advise on date Fargo!!
2MiniSchnauzers (Sep 19-26)
Janaquins (Nov 5-19)

The next step, obviously, is to split up this ONE group into two, but I will do that fairly, evenly splitting the list, and keeping the highest on the list AS the highest on the list,,,

sooooooo I will be mailing NAF a bear and keeping one for myself for 2 weeks,,,,

NAF, I will need your address and name, hon. as you are first on the list for the OTHER bear.

I will be posting BOTH LISTS on the blog once I have it right, working in those who wanted the bears on specific days,,,,

whew, this isnt as easy as it sounds, so bear with me

Hi Raquel!!!!!1 Thankyou!!! I really didn't realize how tough it would be to make sure that I was fair I got so many responses, and went back and forth with some, so that the LAST TIME posted wasn't necessarily the time they ASKED,,,,

OY, what a mess! It's taken DAYS to work this out,,,,finally I just listed everyone and the time and made a list from the times,,,,,sheesh

Too funny! You're doing an awesome job, Holly. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help you out in any way.

Can't wait to get either bear at whatever time! I hope they like sports, because my girls are either always on the soccer field or the softball field -- until the summer time - then they're always in the pool! I think the bears will most likely miss the sports season, but I'm sure they'll enjoy my pool and the backyard barbeques we have. We also always have Friday Margarita Night during the summer, and I'm sure they'll enjoy that.

LOL but we will treat them as if they were bears! Not so sure they are going to be happy to do the activities I had planned for them! Welcome to our Panda and Koala! Which is Bellie and which will be Brad? Thanks so much for doing all that work shopping!

Anna I want to be a bear and come to your house on a Friday for Margarita Night! LOL

Hi Guys,,,I apologize for the delay in posting pics of Brad and Bellie,,,

But MY computer power supply is down, and my DS is the only one who can figure out HIS computer, and trying to wrangle his 21 year old rear end in ONE PLACE the last 2 days has been like trying to catch a greased pig,,,,

He was gone last night and he's gone this morning,,,,sheesh,,,,,,bu t I think he gets home about 4:30 today, so I will SIT ON HIM if I have to

sheesh,,,,I've got LO's to download TOO!!! I need a new power supply, but they are EXPENSIVE!!! But this depending on him is for the birds!

Haven't forgotten it, I promise!

Holly is having some computer trouble, is able to get online, but cannot seem to upload anything. If she can't get to the library to post the pics, she's going to send them to me on CD to post.

Sound like she's got some fun photos!

Stay tuned.

Hi Guys,,,,sorry,,,,What I figured was that I would get the final lists done last night while at work where it's quiet (now that I can get online to SEE the list) and then I could post them here,,,,

but as luck would have it, it's Fly In (a big deal here in Florida) at the hotel I work at, and I just didn't get to it My sincere apologies,,,had I known that would happen last night, I would have posted at least what I knew here yesterday BEFORE I went to work,,,,,,,and today I was sleeping because I worked all night,,,

OK, update,,,,,LOL,,,,Brad is on his way to Naf and Bellie is on her way to Scatter,,,,

from there, I must split the list into two lists, and arrange that the people who are to have him on their vacations will HAVE him on their vacations,,,I started working on it before my computer blew up , and of course I LOST it when my computer blew up,,,,

sigh, so I am back to square ONE,,,,,but I do know that Scatter is next for Bellie and Naf is next for Brad,,,,

and he has gone off to those locations!!!!! Little air holes in their carriers and all!

They will have the bears for 2 weeks, so that gives me at least a couple days to split that list into two,,,

Again, my sincere apologies,,,,,I NEVER expected to have BOTH my computers DOWN at once!!! One is simply awaiting a power supply that seems to be slow coming (growl) and this one is just a PITA!!!I can get on but it takes a good 15 mintues to even GET here,,

so that is the update!!!! Brad (Panda) and Bellie are on their way to their next hosts!

Scatter, did you get Bellie today? I sent her two day priority a couple days ago!!!! She should be there today or tomorrow AT THE LATEST the post master said,,,,Naf should get Brad Thursday, maybe Friday,,,

Again, my apologies!!!

Oh that was my fault, Kit,,,,,I didn';t have a puter for 4 days, then I was so incredibly busy at work,,,,

I STILL have to break the list up to TWO lists,,,,

we';ve started the bears because I know wh;s next, but now I've got to go work all those vacations in and make sure that the vacationers have him on time, but not too early,,,,

head is SPINNING

Will be finishing that up this weekend,,,,but the next two on the list DO have the bears

Hopefully they will post pics because I am still UNable to post on my puter and am STILL waiting for a power supply for my laptop!!!!! Could NOT have happened at a worse time!

i've also got like 17 LO's to post,,,,,,gonna take me a week to post them all!

I had some drama with Daughter (actually her friend) yesterday so my whole day off was not what I expected. I was up and out of the house in a flash and (go ahead, slap me now) forgot Belle!!!

She's with me today, but I'm at work, and I don't think I'll get away with taking pics of her here, I'll have Sunday off, so I'll try for something exciting then.

I did get several pics this morning, she is adorable. I'll post when I get home tonight!!

Maybe make one of your photos located either at a place specific to your local area or something distinctive about your state/city/town etc?

yeap!!Last week I had a big list of places to go with Brad in our town...but DH came and told me that we were leaving not for one but for 2 weeks (one for vacation,the other one he has to work in Bakersfield CA and we are going with him, cuz our vacation is in San Diego) sooo, I think Brad is not gonna be able to make a tour around Salt lake ...I just hope that He maybe can come back home with us after everyone had their turn with him!!!!

Oh, that's tough, I wouldn't have given the flu a thought until I ran into someone that looked like they had it.
What ever you decide, I hope you have fun and stay safe!

I think it's worse than the "normal " flu, Paula,,,,,,she's talking about that pig virus that's spread to humans and so many are sick in Mexico,,,,,CA is so close to Mexico there where she's going that they might be worried about that,,,,,

it's really got the ability to become a pandemic they were saying on the news yesterday,,,,

I don't blame her for being extra cautious about that flu,,,

Oh boy, the news this morning isn't good from what I've seen,,,,,Nury, I don't blame you for being worried about your child/ren,,, (How many do you have??) You've got family in San Diego, don't you? I'm sure you're worried about them,,,,keeping you all in my prayers,,,I'm not sure how much fun anyone would have on vacation, if you ended up wearing face masks all the time or something,,,,

i can't blame you for second guessing this one,,,keep us informed,,,NOW I'm worried about any of "us" (our sb.com fmaily) living in the South West,,,,,not to mention those poor mexican people,,,

Newsflash - there's a whole school shut down up here in NYC because most of the students have it - they had a spring break trip to Mexico a couple of weeks ago so it's already all over the place!!

Oh Lord,,,,,my first thought was that it couldn't be the same strain (they were saying that they didn't think what they had in Mexico was the same strain as what we had HERE in the US),,,,,

and then you said they'd been to Mexico,,,,

man, this is getting SCARY,,,,

in the 70's they had a shot for swine flu, but that was most likely a different strain,,,,

do they have another shot for it now?

OK, guys,,,,,,we have something serious to discuss,,,,,

and I need your input, so everyone front and center, please

We have a swine flu going around the country,,,,,its now in NYC as well as the Southwest,,,,

according to what i have read, the virus can live on objects for UP TO two hours,,,,,there ARE some reports that state the virus can live for up to TWO DAYS,,,,

Normally, we should be protected from passing the virus around because it will take 2 days for mailing,,,,,,even IF I had the virus, it takes 2-3 days to mail him, and the virus (theoretically) should be DEAD before he gets to YOU,,,,,

however, I think a few precautions are called for,,,,

Raquel and I have been tossing the idea of putting the bear in a plastic baggie for your house, and then the next person could either change the bag or lysol the bag when they get him,,,,,,

OR another thought is that when you GET the bear, you immediately WASH him in hot water,,,I'd rather the bear suffer a bit of hot water than anyone get sick from what SHOULD BE a fun thing,,,,KWIM??

I'd also consider lysoling the bear often,,,,,I;d rather he show up smelling of lysolthan full of germs,,,,

I'm trying to protect all of us and our children, grandchildren, and elderly parents,,,,

does anyone else have any suggestions??

Great pictures Holly! They are really cute! The lysol sounds like it would work. Ditto the hot water. I got a question, can we request what bear we want? My DHs name is Brad, and I thought it would be fun to do a Brad/Brad thing. Not a problem if you can't. Might save my DH from alot of teasing if we get Bellie! Thanks!

LOL,,,,,I'll try Shawn,,,,,just so your DH can be teased I'm about done with the lists, but I'm waiting to see if anyone else wants to drop out before I complete it for sure,,,,,,

I need to do that in the next couple days though, in time for those who have them to mail them to the right people,,,,,,

I just LOVE the photos so far!!!
As far as the flu goes, caution is great, but by the time I get the bear, it's gonna have all kinds of chemicals on it, which could be more problems for me than any flu. (Since I am towards the tail end of this fun.)
As long as you seal the bear in the bag 24 hours before mailing it, that would pretty much guarantee the germies would be gone.
I work in the medical field, and every doctor I have talked to has said that this thing is not as bad as people think. Two different meds will seriously knock the flu down, which is a good thing. If no meds affected the flu, then it would really be a serious concern.
I agree about the not travelling right now. They just confirmed this morning that the flu is now in the middle east and asia, also.

sealing him 24 hours before mailing,,,,,now why didn't I think of that,,,

Dawn, you are a GENIUS!!!!!

OK, people, THAT is the plan!!! Please seal the bear in a bag 24 hours before mailing,,,,,,,

If you're STILL WORRIED for yourself, you could toss him in the washing machine when you get him,,,,,,,then let him air dry And Dawn, you could always wash him for the chemicals anyone sprays if you're sensitive! Just toss him the minute you get him straight into the washer with a load of towels or something!!!!

Does that work for everyone????????
