Anyone into winter sports? I don’t know how to ski. Maybe I need to learn?

Did you know there is actually a town about 20 miles from Cortez (in the description) that is called Yellow Jacket, CO. Could it be a log cabin in Yellow Jacket, CO. Now that I look again the skier doesn't appear to be wearing a yellow jacket, just yellow pants. Back to the drawing board.
WOW! What does their webpage look like? LOL
I guess I should be looking for Yellow Hat Colorado. haha
Hmmmmm Canada. The only thing (at this moment) that comes to my mind is all the Canadians that snowbird it down to Florida for the winter.
They told me that they cannot stay beyond the 6-month day (in USA) to the date…… or they could lose their Canadian citizenship. IS THAT REALLY TRUE? Sounded true when they told me!
Is it true that Mary had twin girls Lisa and Marie? Or did she have twin boys Waldo II and Waldo Jr. Or a boy and a girl, Lisamaire and Waldo Jr. Could it be that Mary spends all of her computer time downloading diaper coupons? Maybe Jack decided to give Mary the dream home because it is big enough to raise kids in and still have room to spare. Whatever the reason, we would love to know the location so that we can send baby gifts. Fellow bloggers, do you think this post will trick them into telling us the dream home location?
lol. It might work.
How about Durango, CO it is next to or part of Hermosa which means "pretty people" from earlier clue.
Are there any rules to how many guesses one person is allowed?
Hey, when are they going to fix the "Jump To" convenience at the right of this upper page????
Would be nice if I could use it folks. Or do you have to be in the Debate group to use it?
Just wondering. (Its like a piece of candy dangling out there and I cannot reach it!) : (
Doesn't work for anyone yet that I know of.
That is a crying shame AnneEliseSouth!
What a waste (Thanks tho.)
Where did I post this?
WOW! Check out the Showhouse and photos… http://meredithbaynh.com/photo-gallery-2/
Love that blue and white LIGHTHOUSE!! (Looky….. Meredith Bay, a 410+-acre residential gated community and marina, has signed an agreement with
Ron Peabody of NorthWest Development, LLC for the development of four single family home sites. )
Aaaaaa! The Half Moon Lake lot even has a 40'x 6' lift out dock to enjoy boating, swimming and fishing.
LOOKY at this other lot's view ! ! ! ! ! Sleepyview Lane, Alton NH 03809 http://www.beangroup.com/real_estate/listings/Lan…
I would love to have a pontoon boat on a lake. (The kind with a restroom of course!)
That has its own grill and sink. (Jack style!)
Sounds like a good time, can we come along?
Sure can. Just bring your own hat and sun lotion. (fishing poles are optional) : )
Love to take my camera along. Those loons are beautiful!!
It's a lovely day in our neighborhood
a lovely day for a neighborhood
Could it be mine
Would it be mine
I would love to know where it is
I have a lot to catch up on. The main page photo is another desert scene, interesting. Guess that's something. I was so hoping for a REVEAL. I can't wait. Company has arrived and now left for several days so have time to read back through last several dozen blog pages. Maybe by the week-end Mary will give us a grand reveal—GH giveaway is tomorrow right? I can't wait. I want to see the floor plan more than the location for some reason. I'm hoping for the "grand lodge" timber and stone, Jamie Durie courtyard, warm and wonderful look and I win it (if not me than a fellow blogger). haha That's not asking for too much is it?
There are basically two kinds of people in this world. Those who know plane geometry….and those who think they know know it better. Oh and EdinOregon….fishing in the San Juans is Awesome!!!
COOL! What kind of fish?
I enjoy watching that new show on that guy that goes all over the planet looking for Monster Fish!
It could be "Blue Fish" blue. They catch a lot of those off the coast of MA, and NH! They give you a good fight, but have nasty teeth.
LORDY! Big teeth? Maybe I'll just buy fish at the docks.
All gutted and wrapped in newspaper! LOL
Ready for cook'n.
It seems like I heve seen that fantastic sunset many……..many…….times in Utah…..one could only hope
I had picked Utah once on here. Did research too.
But then Mary said the LOCATION had to be East of the 2010 Dream Home in New Mexico.
Step Into The Real Texas
Howdy! We're glad you stopped by to visit Amarillo, Texas. We're the place where you can "Step into the Real Texas." From canyons to cowboys, big steaks to big spaces, everything Texas is famous for is right here. We're easy to find and once you're here, you'll want to stay an extra day or two.
Amarillo is in the center of the Texas Panhandle, a 26-county area that is bordered by New Mexico and Oklahoma. Here, the southern plains meet the desert. Founded in 1887 at the intersection of two railroads, today the city is the intersection of Interstates 40 and 27
The Amarillo area is a major destination for Old West enthusiasts from all over the globe. The lure of the Old West also draws thousands every year to attractions like the internationally-famous outdoor musical "TEXAS", and Cowboy Morning Breakfast.
Think Amarillo and you think steak. No place sums up Texas, Amarillo and steak better than the Big Texan Steak Ranch, home of the 72 oz. steak. Eat it and all the trimmings (salad, bread, potato and shrimp cocktail) in an hour and its free! 35,000 have tried; 5,500 have succeeded.
The area's most famous bumper crop, located south of Interstate 40 just a few miles west of town, the Cadillac Ranch attracts visitors from around the world. The 10 Cadillacs buried nose down celebrate America's love affair with the automobile.
Amarillo is the largest Texas city on Route 66. Now, a stretch of the old highway, along Sixth Ave. between Georgia and Western Sts., has been revived into a stretch of antique shops, restaurants and cafes.
It's hard to describe the grandeur and variety of the Amarillo landscape. From 1000-foot deep Palo Duro Canyon and the wide-open spaces of the Texas Panhandle to the whimsy of the world-famous Cadillac Ranch and those magnificent Amarillo sunsets, it's all here.
Ok, this is not a copy and paste. I came to Amarillo 4 years ago to visit, and I am still here. The people here are wonderful and welcoming. They make you feel like you have been here all your life and you belong,
Top 10 Things To Do and See in Amarillo
1. Enjoy a cool summer evening at the outdoor musical drama TEXAS, back in Palo Duro Canyon State Park after a three-year absence.
2. Fun horseback rides, hike, mountain bike, and camp in Palo Duro Canyon State Park.
3. Get your kicks on Historic Route 66. Try lunch at the Golden Light Cafe and browse the shops in Amarillo. Then drive west to Adrian, TX for a slice of Ugly Crust Pie at the Midpoint Cafe.
4. Take your pick- Elkins Ranch Cowboy Morning and River Breaks Ranch- for an authentic chuck wagon breakfast or dinner.
5. Visit the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum. With more than 3 million artifacts, it's The Smithsonian with a Texas accent!
Hi, Funfordot, I think Texas would make a wonderful place for the DH 2011. As you and I and Germol and maybe some others have proven, the clues can fit for Texas. I love my "Snowflake" Donut Shop in Boerne, Tx find, among many others. The ONLY problem I have with Texas being the answer to the DH location is that HGTV has already built a home in Tyler, TX, and as I have stated before, HGTV has only repeated a state location when they built 3 homes in Florida. All the others homes were in different states. Well, Good luck with another Texas DH.
LOL! Do you remember when I first got onto Texas as the answer to 2011's DH? It was when we were given the Clue #4 number clue that seemed impossible to make heads or tails out of it. Then one night when I couldn't sleep, my mind jumped me out of bed thinking I had discovered the answer to that clue and therefore the location of the DH. That was when I came up with the "Texas Instruments calculator and computer" as the answer of adding and subtracting and multiplying the numbers and doing whatever we wanted, along with the Cherokee Code, which was with words instead of numbers and therefore the computer. All things made by "Texas" instruments. Ha Well, who knows? It could very well still be the answer.
I just remembered another match I had to Texas. The "Cactus" that is the logo for "Texas Roadhouse" restaurants. Ha!
6. Let the Native American spirit wash over you at the Kwahadi Kiva Indian Museum and a performance of the Kwahadi Indian Dancers.
7. The Big Texan Steak Ranch- big steak or not, it's a one of a kind experience.
8. Amarillo's Wonderland Amusement Park is all that you remember in an amusement park; great size, great prices and lots of fun.
9. Enjoy a dazzling sunset at Wildcat Bluff Nature Center. Located just west of town, this quiet time lets you take a break from the daily commotion. The sunset goes on forever!
10. Share the quirkiness of Cadillac Ranch, a public art statement that is known around the world. Located on the south side of Interstate 40 at the Arnot Rd. exit.
Hey, that could be your Native American link (to go along with one of the stamps).
Could even be TEXAS. Tell ya later. Gotta go.
OK, blue, what are you up to now???
I ran across an iffy clue.
Got to sort it out a little bit yet.
But got go right now. Rainpour just stopped and I have to skip on over to the post office.
(Think cattle East of New Mexico.)
Well my husband went to get me a new Battery for my car, hope that will fix the problem. Do not like to be stuck and can not go anywhere.
17,555,730 green home entries good luck if you were one
Hummmm, that is much lower than the 40 million for the DH. I guess that gives us a better chance then. Yipee!
I love the way you all have gathered like a posse to defend the regular here that was clearly in the wrong.
I could see how some people would have taken that quote the wrong way. I'm glad it got deleted.
WOW! 17,555,730 Green Home entries. Good luck if you were one !
WOW! B.O.L.O. Time.! ! ! !
Be On the Look Out…….
for someone suspicion in your neighborhood.
Now HGTV will have to surprise the winner very soon! ! ! ! ! !
How can Mary post about the drawing on the Green Home site and not give us at least a new morse to chew on?? Not very nice when we have been soooo patiently waiting over here for any crumbs of information!
Still like Paugus Bay on Lake Winni in New Hampshire…..
Is there some kind of blogging contest going on cause the full pages of one blogger talking to themselves is wierd,hahahhaha I mean i do it at home but i dont write it down.lolooloololololol
I think we all are just about losing it waiting for the Dream Home
Im gonna comment on my comment cause im losing it too hahaahahahahhh
LOL…… i d old dolphin!
Yes a 46 year old dolphin,hahahhahah
Im still holding out for Michigan someday there will be a dream home on the shores of a great lake
I would really like to learn how to snow ski. I am capable of skiing down the hill with no problems, I just don't know how to stop. But I am sure that it cannot be that difficult to learn. I learned how to waterski at the age of 10…….and I am really good at it! Besides, it would be fun recreation in the wintertime. And, about those trees……..just stay away from them and no one will get hurt. There should not be any trees near a downhill slope anyway. Vermont has so many ski resorts, I wonder where the home is going to be built. Also, I don't have the desire to go snowmobiling……I guess that if my husband wanted to, he could go snowmobiling with his male friends…….just not with me.
HEY, who did you find out was the poster that impersonated DBCoop?
(Used his name, but didn't have the greenish highlighted page numbers besides his name?)
"HGTV" and "IntenseDebate" and "MARY" working on it?? ( ^ _ ^ )
I am sorry to all the bloggers for the negative climate this blog has taken today.
In case you missed it. Last night, I was asked a question by another blogger as to why I would answer a question that way.
My response was quick and true. I said "Common Sense"
I didn't have any ill feelings toward this blogger at the time, so I was surprised by their response. I believe we have all been surprised, and quite aware of his or her response for quite a few pages now.
My answer hurt that blogger very much and he or she has been trying to convey that feeling of hurt for quite a few pages now. So to that blogger- I am sorry.
This is a reaction that I do not understand since this isn't the way I would respond to hurt feelings, in fact, I rarely take offense, because I know that everyone is basically good and they are just trying to do the best that they can in this crazy world.
Not to mention, why would I give someone else control over me and say that THEY MADE ME feel bad. I refuse to take on those negative hurt feelings, it would only hurt me.
I am reminded of a saying that is true. You can't control how others feel, but you can control how you feel.
Some people have other intentions when making issues on blogs. I think most are aware of what those intentions are.
how far east can we go until we head west?
Is this a trick question?? If you continue on an Easterly path, you will never be heading West. However, you will eventually end up West of the place in which you started. If you happen to stop in Hawaii all the better. ; )
Look, this isn't just about someone disagreeing with me. This is about someone who disagreed with me and, instead of pointing to facts decided to say she had more common sense than me. My post was simply about Calgary being an answer to a lot of the clues. I have said in the past that I doubt they would build the home in Calgary. The thought just popped in my head about the Calgary Vipers and so I posted it. She was extremely rude in everything she responded to in my post. Look, you can try to slice it and dice it all you want to make Cami look better. The bottom line is….she was rude and confrontational The bottom line is….you guys band together and it makes it extremely difficult for HGTV to attract new people to this blog!
Opps! Too much about candy! Must not have had my breakfast yet. It shows.
Forgot….. Wis. has a Mirror Lake too.
