Mary just posted, for the first time, on Facebook. She says she is in the hospital and learning how to access Facebook. So happy she is well enough to do that.

Firstly, Don Great that you have mastered the photos, expect to see lots of your ones now.

Wonderful news about Mary, I have been so worried, if anyone talking to her, send my best wishes to her.

   Debi, you must have your hands full getting rid of all the idiotic posting from overseas. What do they think, we are really going to go to their site, which is impossible anyway. As bad as the callers on the phone that want to “fix” my computer or give me a tax refund, I hope no one was affected by any of the fires you have been having.

No - not Anne. Someone named Lorrie was supposed to call. Mary said Lorrie would call when she was out of surgery, and I should post updates. Makes me mad after she promised to do it!

Hi Everyone, I did talk to Mary's friend late last night, after I found an unfamiliar 619 area code on my caller id and took a chance and called it. Mary is doing well and came through the surgery with flying colors. They got all the cancer and it did not spread to any other organs in her body. She is in good spirits and should be coming home in a few days...thank God! Sorry I didn't post last night, but Mary said that Jane would post updates, but I guess she didn't get a call either. Thanks for posting the info you got on the text Susie.

Hi Jane,

it was a text (from Mary's phone?)I am not sure who sent it - I think it was Anne - probably the same person that was to call you - I am sure she has just been so crazy busy with Mary and everything going on with Dr's etc. You will probably hear from her very soon - I am sorry I didn't post earlier; have been with my Dad quite a bit; going back now. Hugs All!

It's GOOD to hear some GOOD NEWS from Mary! Thanks for the comments on MY finally posting a photo, but I wasn't even home when Deane DID IT! She was determined to figure things out, and with Debi's HELP, she did! You may be sorry you "woke a sleeping bear", but Deane will have to work with the "sleeping bear" first(she's at the Church right now) !

Those cards do go bad after awhile. I've been using the same one for several years now. I bought a spare card a couple years ago so I'd have it and of course, the old one is still going strong. But, I will have it when I need it. LOL

We thought our camera crapped out today. Phil took a whole bunch of pictures for eBay - or thought he did. They wouldn't download. I turned the camera on and tried to take a picture, but I got a message that the card was bad. Well, we've been using it for a long time. Took it to OfficeMax. The nice man found me a card and installed it.

Don, first, Happy Birthday. When you put the camera card into the computer something should pop up on your screen asking if you want to view the pictures or transfer them to your computer. You need to have them on your computer, not try to upload to this page directly from the card. Call me in the evening whatever day you decide.

Well, the "Computer Man" was here today. We spent 20 minutes, with the camera card in the computer, but couldn't get the photos to "download" into the Chat Page. Maybe we'll call Debi, and have her "run us through the procedure". We'll do it sometime when we're not getting ready to go celebrate Birthday!

Don, all you need to do is take pictures, remove the small card from the camera and insert into the small slot on your computer. Then you transfer all the pictures to your computer. If you or Deanne want to call me sometime to walk you through it, you'll get it really easy. Just takes a couple times and then it will be second nature. I do it daily with pictures for Larry's selling page. Let me know.

Don, do you have anyone that can show you how to save your photos you take to your computer, if you can get them on your computer, when you click on upload a photo, it will go to where you have stored the photos, you select the one you want and upload.

 Have you ever considered getting a Tablet, like an iPad or a Samsung or something similar. So easy to used, they have a built in camera. All of my posting and photos done on a iPad mini.

My salt does have the 3 little "ball-like feet", but 1000 is the only mark. I'm sorry, but I've never taken time to learn what to do with this new camera. It doesn't have a computer cord, Sam's Club just said that you use the camera card??

The prices realized from the big Jeffrey Evans auction last Friday are now on the website. Some whoppers! http://opensalts.us/References/AuctionResu...ov-JeffreyEvans.pdf I think I may have actually one of the auctions I bid on. Didn't receive an invoice yet so not sure, but I think so.

Interesting on the enameled silver salts. I don't have one myself, but I thought one I had seen a long time ago had a Danish mark on it. I'd also like to see the marks on all these salt you guys have.

Interestingly I have not been able to find a Dish the same with any marks other than the silver content. None with any mark that would prove it is Russian. Maybe all the dishes/bowls we have in the same or very similar design are Greek.
Would still love a shot of the base Linda, for my records.

Hi Don, I have another one also but more cup like with 3.silver legs, marked 1000. The made in Greece is puzzling, have you ever seen one with definite Russian marks.

Hi Janelle and Linda. I have a salt like these, that I've had for years. Mine is a little different than these(the enameling), and it's marked 1000!

Nice Haul Linda, your 21160 Made in Greece. How fascinating, I have one similar other than no yellow dot. It has 950 on the back. It has 3 small ball feet and 2 1/2" across I have only ever seen them referred to as Russian. Your one may open up a whole new ballgame. Would love to see a photo of the back. Apparently 950 silver was commonly used in Greece so my one was made in . ????

Everything went fine - except the surgeon was running late (about two hours!). He told me three times it went perfect. When we got home, there was a planter at the door. It was from the surgeon and his staff!

Hope your surgery went well, Jane, will be thinking of you
Those are some wonderful salts,Debi,I'm sure the prices will be sky high. I'm one of the ordinary collectors who can't afford to bid on any of them.
We had about ninety trick or treaters last night. More than I figured on, I'm glad I bought a big bag of candy. I'd say more than half of them were middle school age and older.

The time for normal collectors to acquire Lacies is long gone. Unless you're pretty well off, the values now are out of sight. It'll be interesting to see what they end up going for.

I don't know if many of you are aware or not, but there is going to be a huge auction of Lacy Salts by Jeffrey Evans on Nov. 9. I put it together for the website before the auction this time because it took me days to get it done. Obviously, I will add the prices realized later. This lady had one huge collection, many acquired from other prominent auctions. Here's the link - 61 pages - http://opensalts.us/References/AuctionResu...ov-JeffreyEvans.pdf

Thank you all for the good wishes, Jane so hope your cataract surgery goes well. Do you get get a choice of lens, either long vision or short vision. I can read a book without glasses but long is a bit blurry. Will be thinking of you. I think you will be surprised with the difference.

Hi Stephanie - If you could possibly post a picture or two - I would call you and discuss a total purchase - But I need to know what variety of salts your mother collected first - Thank you

Hi Stephanie...You can use my website http://opensalts.us in the references section to determine what types of open salts you have. If there are mostly new reproductions the best you could do would be to try and sell them in lots, on eBay or another selling venue. If your mother collected higher quality salts, you could sell them individually or see if a local antique shop would do consignments or buy them outright. It's hard to give you good information without knowing what you have. You could post some pictures here if you like. Do you know if your mother was a member of any of the salt collecting clubs? Maybe someone here knew her. What was her name? I wouldn't donate to a museum if you think they would be displayed. Many museums just sell off donations. But if they give you a good tax write off and that's all you want, then maybe it would be easiest that way.

Hi. My mother collected between 800-1000 open salts. I'm looking for suggestions as to what to do with them, sell, museum, etc. I live in San Antonio, Texas. Is there an organization I can contact here? Any assistance appreciated. You can contact me at 210-884-0355. Thanks!

Thank you for the continued support - I will be okay - I always am - Just hard without my "strength and calmer" here - But he could not have handled this - Always there for me - but it took it out of him worrying in the background -

Linda - I am sure I still have you in my phone - Send me your secret eBay code if you know it - or an auction you are bidding on so I can pick you out - I will try not to bid against you then - well not quite as often - lol lol

Thought I would make this one separate - Have been to see the oncologist after the lung biopsy was performed - It is confirmed lung cancer - BUT - if there can be good news in this - there is - They did catch it very early - It is not a fast growing one - Pretty sure they can take it and a portion of my lung and I will be a lung cancer survivor now - I see the surgeon next Thursday - Yep Jane while you are having your eyes done - I will be finding out if and when and also how - Everything has been a weekly experience with me so far - If this holds true then maybe I will have my surgery and be out and pretty much re-cooped by Thanksgiving -
To say that I am not a bit on the scared side would be stupid - I am human - I have cancer and they are going to take part of my lung - Sorry but I watched what Bob went through with only the use of one lung - Okay that is out - This does not mean that I do not believe I will be in very good hands and my belief in prayers has not diminished - Also I know that the love I have been shown and given will continue to keep me strong - I'm just saying - ding dong dang thump thud chitty chitty bang dammmmm and fruit fracking fritos -- Just not now okay - just not now --

You got some nice ones Linda. The green art glass has more of an Italian Murano glass vibe than English to me, but I don't have many art glass. Maybe Janelle knows. The little Asian man is called Sumida Gawa and "moriage" is the type of decoration on the china salt. I think that's Japanese.
