    grafted - based on your experience and that of jdouglas, I think I am going to wait until the glitches are worked out with Swago. Thanks for the heads up!

    On the swago game - I saw some of the comments too but wanted to know if any of "our group" ;-) had tried it. jdouglas - I'm apparently in the same boat as you. I tried to do some of the activities but my square never showed that I had completed it. Oh well!

    ctondee31205~everything I'm seeing is on the opposite side of town for you (Benson, clayton, etc.) DH and I wanted to take Rae to hill ridge farms (Youngsville nc), but now with the rain I'm not too sure we will. Lights on the Neuse may be a good alternative for us though. She LOVES the lights lol

    jdouglas....this Is what I found about lights on the neuse

    Grafted, I tried to play Swago, but I was doing something wrong and I just gave up. It wasn't worth the frustration at the moment.

    Careless, the rib roasts at HT Clayton looked really nice today, FWIW. Not sure if that's anywhere close to where you are.

    Don't bother with the HT in Clayton if you need anything else. I always like to buy a bunch of flowers for an arrangement on the Christmas dinner table. Nothing fancy, just some red carnations, white mums, and hopefully some pine looking. The closest thing they had was potted poinsettas. The rest of the store looked like there had been a clearance sale. Very disappointing.

    Speak of holiday lights, does anyone know anything about Lights on the Neuse in Clayton? I'd like to just drive and see some lights, and I'm not sure if this is that kind of thing...

I know go ask mom has a map and stuff and pics but some don't say the address. I know there is a good one on fix it shop road wakeforest address but I want to some with music too

    carelesswhisper - And Taget has the Sutton & Dodge bone in beef rib roast for $7.99/lb at Super Target.

    trichardson0621 - yep! Aldi had the bone-in ribeye roast for $5.99/lb on sale last Wednesday. The ad indicates it was a Wednesday special buy but your Aldi may still have them on sale. Sometimes they extend the Wed. only sale during the week.

  • trichardson0621 Dec 22, 2015

    I also see where Aldi's have them - I think for $5.99 lb
