I also took a photo of my star magnolia last week, before it started to become frowzy from a light frost. I have been gazing at it, particularly as I drive into my driveway. That tree laden with cardinals is like a spring Christmas tree.
this link. Just try not to get as obsessed with it as I am!
Last week, I talked about notices of unsubscriptions of the e-mail feed for the blog. There is another thing I meant to mention. Some people check an option that says "ISP requested deletion" or something close to that. These notices always seem to be from people with AOL e-mails. I can't figure this out. I assume that since the mailing list is large, the ISP may see it as spam. Why would AOL or your Internet Service Provider, e.g., Verizon, ask you to unsubscribe from a list? You don't have to do that. Just put the list sender, firstname.lastname@example.org in your contacts if you wish to continue to receive my blog e-mails.
I am very excited that I'll get to see Guerlain's Marcus Monson on April 9. After years of not being invited to his events, I'm "on the list." He is so much fun, in addition to being a magnificent makeup artist, he's a must-see. If you are in the DC area and want an appointment, call Karen at the Guerlain counter at Neiman Marcus Tysons Galleria.
It's time for the Friday Forum. I'm sorry it's going up a bit late today. I cannot e-mail images to my work computer. New rule; apparently the company is receiving attachments with malware, and they have workers stupid enough to open them (not nice, but really!). I had intended to insert the photos this morning, but I watched the eagle cam too long and started to run late. Those eagles have captured my world.
The Friday Forum has always been an opportunity to share information. Are you using a fabulous product and want to sing its praises? Tell us about it! Did you find a beauty product disappointing? Tell us why! Do you have questions others might be able to answer? We can help! Want to talk about skin care? I'm game. Just use the comments. We have busy weekends and slow ones on the forum. I hope you are ready to share. Given that it's Easter weekend, I suspect some of you are away.
