Home...Ahhhhh

I've been teaching in Camarillo, CA for the guild there. (Hi guys!) This group contains some of the nicest, interesting people I've met in a long time...we had lots of fun thinking Crazy possibilities. California friends, I can't wait to see what you come up with -- send photos PLEASE!

Two very long days...got home at 1 a.m. this morning, after hours at the Burbank and Las Vegas airports Husband dragged himself out of bed this morning to teach his own class. I got to work on the Hanky Panky big quilt, but progress was slow.

So that's what I've been doing. 
News noticed on the way to other things: 


Miep Gies died this week, aged 100. She was the friend to pick up Anne Frank's diary, and save it for Otto Frank...and the world. An incredible woman.

The police find a buried schoolbus in North Carolina -- full of pot plants. 

The Haitian earthquake...what a horrible mess. Current news reports say aid is slow getting there. So to express their anger, people are building roadblocks out of earthquake victims...at least two were noticed by a photographer, and mentioned to the Reuters news service.

I don't get it. If you are desperately waiting for help to arrive (via the roads), why block them with corpses? 

A Swedish Weight Watchers clinic floor collapses...during a 20-some member weigh-in.

A kid lands a world record marlin (more than 1,000 pounds!)...and has to fight off sharks to do it.(Shades of Hemingway's Old Man and the Sea.)

And finally -- nine sneaky expenses that lose you money, if you're not paying attention, courtesy of Get Rich Slowly.

Back to work...I miss my new Camarillo buds, but it's soooo nice to snuggle up against Husband's back, to drink my own coffee, to wear heavy socks and watch Judge Judy. 

Even if it's going to snow again shortly.
