TweetOMG, I am so excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is better than oatmeal. This is better than an armful of library books. This is better than finishing a draft. My Beloved Husband and I are going to make a difference. We’ve joined the Team in Training, a kick-butt group that raises money for cancer research for the Leukemia [...]

TweetBy this time tomorrow, I’ll be on my way to Kindling Words. I have about 48 hours of work to do before I leave. It’s going to be a long day. Re: Heath Ledger. So very sad, so awful for his loved ones. I am syndicating this blog to Amazon Connect. It’s a terrific idea, [...]
TweetThe snow stopped, so our lake effect storm was a brief one (compared to last February). We wound up with almost four feet, but the driveway is plowed, the streets are plowed, we were able to get out yesterday afternoon. Oh, and school is open today. In Fulton, NY, (a few towns over) the roof [...]
Tweet I still believe, too. We’ve had almost three feet of snow in the last twenty-four hours. Needless to say, we’re staying home today. scribble, scribble, scribble, scribble, scribble…..
