Happy New Year

Well, I'm quite behind in posting, but wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year!  Just think--only a few years ago everyone was in a panic with Y2K.  We survived that, didn't we?

Another Amtrak train trip coming up!  Photos will be posted here.  Destination?  Where I can experience "real" winter!  Here's what I have to look forward to! ----->

Happy Thanksgiving!

ü  If you have food in your fridge, clothes on your back, a roof over your head and a place to sleep you are richer than 75% of the world.
ü  If you have money in the bank, your wallet, and some spare change you are among the top 8% of the world’s wealthy.
ü  If you woke up this morning with more health than illness you are more blessed than the million people who will not survive this week.
ü  If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the agony of imprisonment or torture, or the horrible pangs of starvation you are luckier than 500 million people alive and suffering.
ü  If you can read this message you are more fortunate than 3 billion people in the world who cannot read it at all.

Happy Thanksgiving to my blog-friends!

Crocheting for Charity

I am involved in two crochet-related charities: Heartmade Blessings ( the Navy Marine Corp Relief Society (

My dilemma is that both of these fine organizations are needing more people to help make squares or blankets for their wonderful work and I don't know which one to focus on right now!

So if any of you fellow crocheters would be willing to join in on either of these projects, please let me know and I'll send you more details, or put you in touch with the coordinators. Even if you can't make the full 36" square blanket for the Navy class, certainly some of you could whip out a 12" square or 2 for Heartmade Blessings?

The only requirement is to use washable yarn (any type or size) and the blankets measure 36-40 inches square.  Otherwise, any color, any pattern done in squares or in one piece.  The NMCRS will provide you yarn to use and send a FedEx label to send the blankets back, free to you.

Hope to hear from some of my friends who would be willing to help out.
