Round Three

The Keys are being evacuated of tourists in preparation for Hurrican Ivan "The Terrible" - told you all it was a historically bad name to ignore. Catagory 5 with winds of 160 mph. So I guess this weekend it's "Round Three" for our state, certainly deja vu for us on the Gold Coast. Weather today is back to tropical paradise.

In political news,
USA Today came out with an article about a Guard Commander who felt he had to sugar coat his criticism of young Dubya's service and Memos have been unearthed that show Dubya was suspended from flying. The Pentagon managed to "lose" some of Dubya's military records (as you all might have heard in July) but I guess they weren't thorough enough purge the records of his commanders - kinda dumb thing for them to do. It's getting fun folks, just wait until Kitty Kelley's book comes out next week. They've already begun the spin control.

Happy news today:
Puppy Shot Man Trying To Kill Dogs. Seems like a man was holding two puppies, one in his arms and another in his left hand, when the puppy in his hand wiggled and put its paw on the trigger, making the gun discharge. How's that for poetic justice? I betcha they are being flooded with calls to adopt those puppies.

Site of the day is
Needle Maid Designs. As many of you might know, Martha Schmidt was killed in an automobile accident in June on her way to teach classes at a cross stitch show. However, her family will be making many of her designs available for free on the site for the next few months so that her legacy continues. There are some pretty informative instructions available right now on the site, including a basic stuff such as "how to stitch on aida" and "how to stitch on linen". Thanks so much, Nancy, for letting me know about this site.
