    Morning! It is always fun when I log on in the morning, and look to see who else is here. THe UK is 5 hours ahead of the US East Coast, so there are usually only a few people online, usually us Brits, Izy and Elle in Spain and k3n in France.

    But I see other names of 'connected' users that I know are in the US. Currently it say the following people are online:
    Connected users: Izy joannl joy Ninnie lorils Quiltin'Lady Pam Pollock kwhite MsSage PrettyKitty bodie358 trugger Denise0256 blahel FancyFoot pittsburgpam 3incollege kd124 jette PatriceJ

    Are you guys really online or do you just leave your computer on and logged in all night? Because at the time or writing this, it is 9.40am here, meaning it is 4.40am in New York, and even earlier for those of you further West! Or are some of you just night owls and stay up til the wee hours doing your quilting?

    i'm usually logged on 24 hrs a day because i leave my computer on all the time.

    but ... yes ... i am awake. thanks to hot flashes, my body/brain schedule has changed radically. they wake me up about every two hours, almost like clockwork. i usually "give up" and get up between 3:30 and 4:00 am. these few hours before i have to get ready and head off to the office are when i do most of my quilting. even on weekends i'm usually awake before the chickens.

    by the time most people are having breakfast, i've had "lunch" and am ready for my "afternoon" nap. :roll: :lol:

    Well, morning Patrice, you are up with the larks. How frustrating for you waking so early, but there is something to be said for that 'quiet time' early morning before the rest of the world wakes up. You must get so much done!

    I agree with Patrice, those hot flashes are a great wake up call. I'm usually on here around 5:30 each morning. Gotta check out what's going on before work.

    I'm here! :-)

    It's just a couple of minutes shy of midnight, and we've just got home. I have to confess my computer gets left on a lot too... so it may say I'm here but I'm not really.

    Good morning! Yes I was really up that early. Mortimer (dog) likes to go out for an early run and I usually check in while he is gone. Also work on blog then. I'm on dial up and the network isn't so slow in the middle of the night and pictures load a little faster. If it says I'm on line I really am. Never leave computer just on. So if you are up come and have a cup of coffee! LOL

    I'm usually up by 4:00 am, then I start the fire, coffee, get dressed, then get on the net. Be happy to chat with you, pm me and let me know, then I can check to see if someone is on.

    this is interesting to me because i use a mac. i never log off, but it puts itself to 'sleep' after a set amount of time. so even if i leave it on, it's off.

    I'm really here. It's 4:54 am and I've been here for about 30 minutes. It's kind of wierd that I don't have to actually login to this message board but when I cruise over here, the board knows who I am.
