We’ll Miss You Patrick Swayze

It saddened me every time I saw one of Patrick Swayze's photos on the cover of a magazine in the grocery. Though I'm sure that he didn't want his fans to feel sorry for him, it was hard to see such a vital, handsome man with a lively career in film languish in such a way.

Fortunate Friday: New Friends

Since I started this blog back in March, I have learned how quickly that you can go from being scared of the Word Press Dashboard to whizzing around it like a Cirque Du Soliel aerialist.
