Sally at Retired English Teacher writes on her blog today about the fire in Colorado Springs, CO. It is now out of control, and they need "prayers and rain". I can't do much about the rain, but you guys sure do have my prayers. I feel so badly for you that this is happening.

UPDATE: Here is Sally's latest report on the fire, "Smoke, Rain and Wind".
"Stuff I Like"
I like these vitamins. They taste good and they don't give me a belly-ache. And, they make me feel better. I'm just sayin'.
Cary brought me these roses:
Here are a few of pictures from our wedding:
Our grandson Garrett was the ring-boy and Cary's dad, Troy, was the best man.
Kristin and Kari were my bridesmaids and my Mom was my matron of honor. It was a fun day. There were around 250 folks there, and we had it in a local R.V. park. We had a potluck, swimming, a band and then karaoke.
Facebook is up to more nonsense. Apparently, they have have assigned everybody new emails, and are posting them on our profile pages, hiding the ones that we like others to use. They didn't tell anybody, they just did. In addition, these new emails are not ones that just forward messages to our phones and old email addresses either. They are able to be opened by others besides us; Facebook authorities, whoever they are. If you want to change things back to the old way, it is easy, but you have to go into your contact info and edit it.
They also want my phone number. Heck, no on that one! Who really knows who owns Facebook now anyway? If it wasn't so convenient and if I didn't have so much fun with it, I would quit. But, I'm just not ready to that yet. I'll keep on dancing and dodging around their tricks the best that I can, for the time being. Facebook privacy issues sure do keep me busy...how about you?
Speaking of nonsense, Norton Anti-Virus really ticked me off the other day. I would be switching tabs from Facebook to my blog, and get a pop-up that said my blog was spam and to not go there. Now that really made me upset. It is my blog, and it is not spam to me. So, I called up the customer service department at Norton, and though nice, the woman said that she couldn't do anything about it herself. She did tell me that I was up-to-date with my subscription. She wanted to transfer me over to the people who could fix it for me, but it would cost me around $70.00 I said, no, not right now, that I was on my way out the door. I actually was, I was going on my date with Cary.
Before we left, I tried one more thing. I ran the free program that I had been using to scan and fix registry errors. Then, I deleted it, just in case it was giving my computer conflicting information. After that, I rebooted the computer and everything was fixed. I am still not sure if Norton was trying to drum up some business for themselves, or if the other program was causing a problem. I have had the other program on for a couple of months, and the Norton pop-up thing just began on Saturday. Anybody know anything about this? Because if Norton is messing with me, I don't want to do business with them any longer.
Well, this is long enough. I hope that you all have a wonderful day!
