This will be a brief post, but I promise I'm working on several things. More on this in a few paragraphs.
Something New! A friend Catherine told me about a website called "Pinterest" that looks to be pretty cool! It is kind of a cyber bulletin board where folks post anything from artwork to recipes and anything in between. It takes about a day once you request to be invited, but you really ought to give it a look-see. It's pinterest.com.

The "Sophie Scandal":
She must have made her "choice" because other then a few dents, I've been getting 6 to 8 "good eggs" a day. I make sure they never run out of food and try to do treats often. I put berber carpet on the floor of the nesting boxes to perhaps soften the landing of the eggs, but I had already gone a few days without a problem. Good girl Sophie! I now have eggs out the wazoo (at least theirs LOL) so now I have to figure ways to use them. Mark is getting tired of egg sandwiches every morning.

STEP INTO MY OFFICE: Wherever that may be...I assure you that I hate getting dirty and am grossed out easily, so these will not put "Dirty Jobs" off the air.
I've been a substitute teacher (all grades and abilities) for 11 years, so almost nothing scares me:) Though my goal with that is to always keep things from happening that are newsworthy, I'm sure I will probably post on it later. For now I plan to try new "jobs" or activities and report back how-tos and how it went (along with photos.) I also plan to toss in my experiences as a movie extra/ bit part player, office temp in Los Angeles and other "odd jobs." I've applied to do a 7 day, 70 hour stint as a car test driver (aka "Crash Test Dummy")in a few weeks and got a call for an interview, but first I will be serving as an...
Election Poll Worker
On the face of it, this doesn't sound to awfully funny, especially since I went to the training session. I did laugh when I got the pink card assigning me as "Judge." What? Turns out pollworkers are called judges. I will try to report details without giving away any government secrets! I can't wait to be at the precinct dark and early at 5:30 a.m. We might be there as late as 9 p.m. for a day rate of $100. We aren't allowed computers, newspapers or cell phones. They warned us that this will be a s-l-o-w day as there are no issues in most precincts and it's not a presidential election. What have I gotten myself into???? Well, I am proud to help folks exercise their right to vote, so here goes...

Well, hope you'll stay tuned! Would really appreciate it if you "follow" this blog. I have a lot more readers than it appears and would like to have a more accurate count:)
Until next time,
