  • OPEN BLOG!

    Hi everyone!

    A quick post to get you guys an open space to chat!

    First – a little weather update:

    We could see strong to severe storms this afternoon and evening from the Texas Panhandle through the Central Plains.  Large hail and damaging winds are likely, and isolated tornadoes are also possible.

    The tropics are starting to heat up, and thankfully the area of low pressure we have been monitoring in the northwestern Caribbean looks pretty ragged.   A depression may still develop in the next few days, but conditions are not that great for significant intensification in the Gulf.  However, whether or not development occurs,  the Gulf Coast and South will probably get soaked in the next day or so…

    And we have Tropical Storm Erin now that will pass through the Cape Verde Islands.  Erin is not forecast to effect land in the next 5 days and may dissipate early next week as it encounters an unfavorable environment.

    And in personal news, you should now be able to get Freddy on Amazon, and have it delivered to your door before the release date!    Margie was the FIRST to post a review, and it was GLOWING

    Thank you so much Margie.  Your support and kindness over the years has been remarkable.  I’m so fortunate to have wonderful friends like you and the rest of our blogging family!  And Freddy is so HOPPY as well! :)

Hi Janice, I just read your article on girls in math and science. Good for you!! I have two daughters and they were told to go for the gusto in whatever field they chose. They did and did quite well! Now their daughters are doing the same thing. I think we have at least one female Werner Von Braun coming up.

Hey Janice, I was happy to write the review of your book. You did such a great job and I'm proud of you! I love you and I feel very blessed to know you. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your life. Hey to everyone else out there. If you haven't ordered Janice's book yet, you should! It's such an adorable story and I loved everything about the book. Have a great afternoon, everyone! Margie
