    Allright Cheeky. I have the feeling you are up to a whole bunch of shenanigans down there in Houston. Are you holed up somewhere with whine and cheese and beads??? Geepers a beading girl’s dream! Very nice pick here Miss Cheeky—perhaps another fave pick we shall see on a POD or fave of the week??? me guess is a yes!

  2. Chicky ChaCha
    Chicky ChaCha says:

    LOL—I meant wine of course not the other kind of whining and dining. Alas the senior moment of spelling booboos.

    Cotopaxi Chickie Sue says:

    Cheeky, you are just too funny tonight! No whining (or wining) tonight – I have to be at a 7:30 am orientation prior to being allowed on the site for the training class – safety first, dontcha know! ;-)

  4. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Love it!!! Very yummy looking. :D

    Does anyone else miss real cheddar cheese, not the 2% milk kind, but the real creamy, melt in your mouth taste we used to have before the medicos decided we needed lower cholesterol and healthier living?
    Now, there’s your “whine”. ;)

    Chicky ChaCha says:

    Dang a BW just can’t have any fun can she. J/K I totally understand and know you are there on business. I will try and behave and not be a bad influence. Hope you get to have some fun and check out some bead stores while down there as Harriet said ya’ll have fun now, ya’ll hear???

  6. Cotopaxi Chickie Sue
    Cotopaxi Chickie Sue says:

    I’m with you on that one, Harriet! My mouth is watering just thinking about it…

  7. Cotopaxi Chickie Sue
    Cotopaxi Chickie Sue says:

    ChaCha, I don’t think there’s any bead stores in Baytown – I’m in refinery country here! But I’ll have fun with all my oilmen!

  8. Chicky ChaCha
    Chicky ChaCha says:

    Baytown, oilmen??? HMMMM and Bob let’s you do this??? LOL! Do you have your JR Ewing hat on Miss SueEllen? Hey I am in oil country here in Tulsa OKie dokie too.

    CAS says:

    Aah … Harriet, it’s all in living in the “right” place. Here in New Hampshire we have Vermont’s most awesome product, “Cabot Creamery” 100% real Chedder Cheese readily available. It’s udderly heavenly, if you ever get the chance try their Hunter’s Seriously Sharp Chedder … devine!

  11. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Oh, Yum!!! Just don’t tell my doctor. ;)

  12. Chicky ChaCha
    Chicky ChaCha says:

    Hey Hey Hey—I am the original cheese person here being from Wisconsin—hey Anita QoG where are you in this one??? Nothing like Wisconsin cheese CAS heh heh! But I bet Vermont has a good runner up brand somewhere as you stated :)

    Cotopaxi Chickie Sue says:

    ChaCha, you’ve got Phillips and Conoco ‘up’ there, which are also my customers! Now, if I could just get them to hire me for service or training! You’ll be the first to know if I do!

    Nighty nite, Cheeky! :D

  14. Cotopaxi Chickie Sue
    Cotopaxi Chickie Sue says:

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Wonderful pick, Sue!!! Love the colors and the conversation about cheese!!! Some of Bob’s and my fave TV commercials over the years have been about cheese — hmmmm — what does this say about us? Oh, yeah — we have good taste! LOL Since Bob is from Wisconsin, we have to vote with the WI cheese block — LOL — but we sure do love those “happy cow” commercials! Our fave is the one with Sadie the cow leaving WI to go to CA through all the snow…..ROTFLOL….the cows even talk with WI accents!!! :D

  21. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    We’ll have to ask our Miss Sue about that one, since she grew up in Duluth!!! Now she’s trying to convince everyone that she’s a Southern Belle because she was born in San Antonio! ROTFLOL ;)

  22. Sali Jo GemsChica Chick
    Sali Jo GemsChica Chick says:

    Ok…you chicks are making me hungry! Hey when we are up in MinneSOTA we always buy cheese curds….they are fabulous! Never had them before I ventured up North! Hey the Southerners (and I love them) wouldn’t know a cheese curd from a cow _urd……just kiddin!!! All you Southern chickies….

  23. Sali Jo GemsChica Chick
    Sali Jo GemsChica Chick says:

    Well I got way off the subject after reading this discussion on cheese….this pick is FABULICIOUS! That is what I wanted to say all along…

  24. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Hey, Chica Chick! We had cheese curds up in WI and they WERE great!!! Hard to explain to someone who’s never had them, though. You are cracking me up with your comments!!! Now I’m hearing everything in my brain in a MinneSOTA accent!!! ROTFLOL

  25. Chicky ChaCha
    Chicky ChaCha says:

    Hey Sandra—-I will make you an official cheesehead you little southern belle you! You know what a cheese curd is by golly. I miss them little curds—was hoping I could get our Chickie Sue to pick me some up—the fresher they are the more they Squeek when you bite into them—mmmmmmmm- miss those yummers.

  33. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    I don’t know…it’s all getting a little “cheesey”, don’t ya think?

    Sandra, we westerners definitely know all we need to know about the “cow pies” to which you alluded earlier. We even know you don’t want to step in that! ROTFLOL

  34. Little Round Chick
    Little Round Chick says:

    I just dropped in on this conversation……As a former Hillbilly I ain’t got no favorites in cheese. All we had was bland American Cheese and extra sharp black something or the other extra sharp cheddar. Actually I am no longer a Hillbilly… I’m a Hill William cause I got me a college education. :D
    BTW, Happy Cows come from California doncha know?

  35. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

  41. Chicky ChaCha
    Chicky ChaCha says:

  42. CAS
    CAS says:

    Hey Sweet Mary! I’m so glad that you’ve partaken of Cabot Cheese out there in the great midwest! And yes it is the same cheese that you can get at Cabot Creamery (they have sampling tables in the company store … mmmmmm … yummy-yummy …). I took the factory or I should properly say dairy tour a couple of years ago with friends and their children.

    Here are some pictures:

  46. CAS
    CAS says:

    Sweet Mare – we buy Cabot Hunter’s Seriously Sharp Chedder in 2 pound blocks, usually 2 or 3 blocks at a time, that’s how “seriously” we love the cheese!

    SO glad Lima Beads gives us a forum to discuss the many serious topics mentioned here…………..

  51. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Yes, Sandra, and next we will discuss World Peace. My idea is that if we could just get all the feuding people to sit down and bead together, teach each other, and learn from each other…then maybe they would quit trying to kill each other. If things get dicey, we will just announce a great sale and get them all working together again. I bet we could get LB to help out for a cause so important to everyone, everywhere. Maybe we could get AquaKitty to think about that one.

  52. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Maybe we could get the entire world involved in the next Easter Egg Hunt!!! LOL Got all of us to become friends, right? ;)

    Faithful Chick aka Faith says:

    Anybody out there raise cattle? I once helped sort out milk cows in my bell bottom pale aqua dress pants and little white keds tennies shoes. What a joke. I got pretty good at telling which ones needed milked and which didn’t. My friend said the little bull is gonna run in too. Just let him right on by. LOL. A sight to behold.

    If I hadn’t already put this in my faves because of your pick, Sue, it would be there because of the comments!!! LOL

  64. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    BTW, has anyone contacted the United Nations about our proposal for bringing about world peace through beading, wine, and cheese/cheese curds? I’m sure they would be happy to be innundated with e-mails from all of us!!!!! 8O
