Kitchen stuff

We are moving. We have found a place and although we haven't paid our damage deposit yet (we're renting) we both like it and feel it's a good fit for us. So, I'm already dreaming. It's what I do. I like moving to new places. Scratch that, I like living in new places, moving holds as little appeal to me as it does for 99% of the rest of the population. I like imagining what will go where and thinking about walking around the neighbourhood (with a stroller this time?!). I like thinking about how I'm going to decorate it and how for a few moments it will likely be clean.

I know that this time around I should be dreaming about the nursery, and believe me, I have to a degree. But, anyone who knows me well knows that the kitchen is the most important spot for me. I love to cook and beyond nearly everything else I own, it's my kitchen utensils and unique serving dishes that give me the most pleasure. Sadly, this place has a smaller fridge and a small oven so that will take some adjusting. But, I'm trying not to fall into my typical negativity. It has more counter space! And, there is enough room in the kitchen where I (we) can have a shelving unit for the microwave and toaster oven and (fingers crossed), I can get the cookbooks off the bookshelves in the living room and into the kitchen where they belong.

But, back to the counter space...

Excuse me while I zone out for a moment.

Ahh, more counter space.

Lovely.

More room to roll out dough, more room for chopping vegetables, more room for giant soup pots to be out on the counter at the same time as the groceries needed for said soup.

But, beyond that, perhaps even enough room to fit two things I've dreamed of having for some time. Nothing fancy or spectacular but special to me.

Moving to Beliveau in St. Vital. Nice, quiet area and our apartment looks onto a courtyard which is pleasant. And, I have a balcony! Window boxes and tomato plants (next summer). YAY!

I know what you mean about a kitchen. It has to be a pleasant place. This summer, I was at my parent's home, where I grew up and I realized that I don't like mom's kitchen AT ALL. It was built after I moved out, in a completely new spot. The "old kitchen" is now a laundryroom/washroom/pantry. (What can I say, it's an old house and you just need to put your pantry in a place where there is room). The "new" kitchen is small, cramped and dark. I can handle small but cramped and dark makes me feel like I'm cooking in a closet. I am so grateful for my kitchen especially for the windows.

===============
"BREAKING NEWS"
===============

-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Globa| Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth before they can
be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number of other benefits.
Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and the lack of oils and sap found in the wood
make it resistant to forest fire, ensuring higher returns on investments.
T
he wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140 Million
with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With anticipated
growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153 Million in revenues.
As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree continues to grow around the world
EGTY believes additional multi-million dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of 250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business owners in New Zealand,
Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular and profitable fast growing infant tree plants.
Inquiries from the governments of Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.

Conclusion:

The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
known Companies That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens.
This s-t0ck will not be a Secret for long. Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right
Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!
