Hi Work and Family members,
Just about everyone is Blogging. I have on online journal (blog) that I
share with friends. I have made it a part of my signature at the bottom of
my personal e-mails. I find that it is a good way to stay in touch with a
lot of people at one time without much effort. Whenever I send an e-mail
to my friends they can take a look see what’s going on in life (and my head).
This week I talk about using a Blog in the workplace.

products to make things fresh. This 'use of vinegar, salt and baking soda'
list continues to change and grow.
*Quotes for Inspiration*
+Power is the ability not to have to please. --Elizabeth Janeway
+I am a woman above everything else. --Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
+Sure, I'm for helping the elderly. I'm going to be old myself
someday.--Lillian Carter at age 85

The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through

laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound
us all together. —Erma Bombeck
