And also the CD thing. My Mom recently passed away and I regret that we did not get to our project to go through pictures and id people and occasions where possible. But at least I can scan and save some. I have done that with my digitally taken photos though haven't put them in the Safety deposit box yet. Maybe I will just consider a fire-proof box/home safe. I think those work fairly well.
Sorry OT but can anyone suggest a reasonable resolution to use that isn't ridiculously large but will stand up for years to come?
They were on the same plane coming home from Madrid when i was back in July. They had the little guy with them, not the older one. I said hi to Kurt. It's nice to see such a lovely stable couple. A fire is a dreadful, stressful thing to happen to a family. Sonia has a new ballet season starting and Kurt has BOTB starting. I hope they are OK. Kurt really has turned into one of our icons. I've seen him at the ballet fundraiser and he gave me a kiss on the cheek when I spoke to him. With all the screwing around and acting like teenagers of other skaters we admire(d), Kurt is always classy.

However, this discussion has given me the idea of using my hairdryer on my golden retriever when she is soaking wet after rolling in mud puddles and getting a bath. . .
You've never used a hairdryer on your dog?

I show dogs, the hairdryer is part of my show equipment. Just be aware that the dog may be frightened of the dryer at first. What i do to get the dog use to it is to dry my hair and blow the dryer at the dog while i dry my hair. the dog is not wet during the trial period.
It's not just the memorabilia which can be replaced in many instances. A member of Sonia's family was a famous artist (to people in the art world who know their stuff) and they have a lot of her art in the house, supposedly. That's gone forever, if it was part of the loss.
Then there was the story about 10 years ago about the old lady who used the microwave to dry off her dog. That was very sad
Kurt shouldn't feel as bad as this guy, who is lucky to be alive.
