Can I send an e-mail thank-you to relatives from out of town who sent me a gift?
If you have to ask this question then the answer is probably no. If someone took the time to mail you a gift, it would show thoughtfulness to send a written note or card. But on the other hand the email is an acceptable form of communication and it could be a good instant way to thank somebody for a gift. Of course, if you are in doubt that this person includes email as part of their daily life then it would make the email less appropriate. It certainly would be fine with me to receive an email thank-you for a gift I had mailed.
Written cards are alway best. But I feel we're living in the e-world so if you feel that you have time constraints then send a quick thank you via email and remember to send a written one later. In the long run-the handwritten word will win them over.
A hand written card or note is always the best bet. I'm one of those people who never gets to it. I do however call as soon as I recieve a gift in the mail. I also try to call and thank someone who has had me to dinner or as an overnight guest. Try to get the return address right off the package and have cards and stamps on hand. If you make this a habit now, both you and the people you thank will appreciate it. Whatever you do, always acknowledge a gift or kindness as soon as possible.
I am so bad at "Thank you" notes and I love it when I get them. It is always nice. A follow up phone call the next day is nice. I agree that email is fine ... better than nothing, but a card is the best ... I wish I sent more cards.
User CommentsDepends a lot on where you are in this beautiful state, if you h - Depends a lot on where you are in this beautiful state, if you have the lxruuy of being either coastal or on the Indian River Lagoon or another of our estuaries, you don't even need to start with a fishing license, it isn't a requirement for fishing saltwater as long as you are on a dock bridge pier or other structure permanently affixed to shore or wade-fishing in no more than 4 feet of water.Get a rig and get some shrimp, go to your closest salt water, put a shrimp on a hook, throw it out, and wait. There's all kinds of good fish around, within 2 miles of my house, I can go out and get (on a good day, of course, because well, I'm not one of those people who catches something decent every time I go out ) seatrout, redfish, mangrove snapper, snook, etc., etc. On a bad day at least I can usually say I got to unhook a catfish or a puffer, or feel bad for a 5 7 inch trout Pick up a booklet on fishing regulations (get them free at the tag agency) preferrably with a handy-dandy fish identification section (always nice to know what you're catching ) and have fun.Good luck and happy fishing.Edited to add .Thanks, Exert, I may not be the best fisherperson around, but darn it, I know my rules. at least in salt water .Oh, line test . I personally like 20 (just that wishful thinking that maybe I'll catch something I need it on ) but I'm using 6 lb test diameter powerpro right now . fit a lot more line on your reel . I won't vouch for any of the other claimed benefits, because I just got a new rig that needed line on it .. I went from maybe $ 20 worth of fishing equipment to nearly $ 300 in the course of a day (Having a new job with a boss who fishes tournaments has it's advantages )
Why is my gravy so lumpy?
The flour can clump up. Best to strain your gravy and use a whisk while adding flour.
