There is a beautiful 24 year old woman named Anne in a hospital in Barcelona, Spain fighting for her life. At the end of August, she and a friend went on a fun trip to Spain. She felt bad on the plane and ended up spending the first 3 days in the hotel. Finally her roommate took her to the hospital and they promptly put her in. To make a long story short she is now in Stage III ARD and her lungs are NOT healing. They put her in a coma and on an ECMO machine to breathe for her. She has received stem cells and they have done everything they can but her lungs NEED TO HEAL! Please become a member of Team Anne and pray for her recovery. There are so many already praying but a few more can't hurt. Her parents are friends of mine and they have been with her since the first week. Imagine the trauma they are going through in a foreign country, trying to cope, finding a place to live, not to mention the cost involved. It has been almost 2 months of this incredible horror story. Thank you.

I'm feeling miserable due to cold symptoms, achy, itchy water eyes, cough, runny nose. This is the second cold I've gotten and I rarely get them. What gives this year? I came back from the wedding and visiting grandchildren with this. I didn't notice anyone else that was suspiciously sick while I was there. Don't have much energy and don't have to do much today so I'll take it easy.

I've been working on my Underground Railroad Quilt and have 10 blocks finished. Two more to go and then I can start putting it together. It has gone so fast. I love making each block, so creative deciding which fabrics to use. I thought it would take me a long time to finish it but it is so satisfying to see each finished block.

I seem to have given up on followng any sort of diet plan. The good news is that I am still being sensible in my choices and not overeating. I will get back to it but not today. Later.

    If you are not eating the way you used to eat, that in itself is an accomplishment. Please stay in touch even though you aren't doing the plan. You have learned something or else you wouldn't be here. Congratulations on your quilt. Please post pix of it when its done.

We spent the weekend on Jekyll Island, Ga for an absolutely beautiful wedding. It was the most beautiful wedding I had ever been to. I guess when budget is not a concern, you can fly the moon! The weather was perfect, sunny in the 70's. The venue was the Crane Cottage, a turn of the century cottage owned by the plumbing King, Mr. Crane. The island was orginally purchased in the late 1800's by a group of rich Americans, J.P.Morgan, Fitzpatrick, and other wealthy persons of that era! I'll have to google and learn more. The Island was purchased by the state of Georgia in the mid 1900's.
Now that I've been there, I don't need to go back as it isn't that big of a place. We rented a 3 br condo for us, our son, wife and grandsons ( 3 of them were in the wedding) My Daughter inlaws sister and her significant other and niece who came to baby sit the baby while we went to the wedding. It was very expensive and that condo was less than exciting. As a decorator, it definitely needed some updating. Really tacky.
We had a wonderful time except on Sat while we all expected to watch the FSU Boston College football game, the cable was out. In fact the cable was out when we arrived on Friday and never came on the whole weekend. We went a whole weekend with no TV, no news, no football. My son had his laptop and was able to bring up the game on it via internet so we did get to watch or we would have had to go out to a sports bar somewhere. And FSU won! $550 for 2 nights in a tacky condo with no cable. They did take $88 off our bill because we complained so much. I didn't really miss the TV because I was out half the time but our babysitters didn't have much to do.
Anyway, we had a lovely time! And I didn't eat too much! Back now and back to work!

Today we are in Jekyll Island Georgia for a wedding. It is a beautiful day, sunny in the 70's but this place is sure expensive! We are in a 3 br condo with son and wife and 2 kids, her sister, sig other, and niece. No TV! This is really important because FSU is playing Boston College and it is the big game of the week! We are all FSU fans dressed for the game and can't watch itl. We get, the repair man will be here sometime today! Duh, it's costing us $550 for 2 nights in this place with 1980's decor and no TV! One kid is 14 months and the other is 6 and he is in the wedding with his parents!

Anyway, it is lovely here and we love seeing our family! Last night we had a low country boil which included steamed shrimp and snow crab! I love crab and it was delicious! The cake was beautiful but it was covered in fondant. What is with fondant, it doesnt taste all that good but it makes beautiful cakes. You can make a beautiful cake with icing if you know how to do it.

I will have to look up the history of this place as it was owned by a bunch of rich people in the late 1800's when people were very rich or very poor. Anyway, we will be searching for some sort of sports bar if we don't get cable soon. And a big discount on this place. Later.

Am posting this e-mail that I got from a friend. It is hilarious!


I am passing this on to you because it definitely works and we could all
use a little more calmness in our lives. By following simple advice heard
on the Oprah show, you too can find inner peace.

Dr. Oz proclaimed, 'The way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the
things you have started and have never finished.'

So, I looked around my house to see all the things I started and hadn't
finished, and before leaving the house this morning, I finished off a
bottle of White Zinfandel, a bottle of Tequila, a package of Oreos, the
remainder of my old Prozac prescription, the rest of the cheesecake,
some Doritos, and a box of chocolates.

You have no idea how freaking good I feel right now.

Pass this on if you know anyone you think might be in need of inner
