Hi, all you animal lovers! This is pretty simple... The Animal Rescue Site is having trouble getting enough people to click on it daily so they can meet their quota of getting FREE FOOD donated every day to abused and neglected animals. It takes less than a minute (about 15 seconds) to go to their site and click on the purple box 'fund food for animals for free'. This doesn't cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate food to abandoned/neglected animals in exchange for advertising.

Here's the web site! Please pass it along to people you know.

MY UNFAIR LADY by Kathryne Kennedy

MY UNFAIR LADY by Kathryne Kennedy to be released December 2009:

He created the perfect woman… The impoverished Duke of Monchester despises the rich Americans who flock to London, seeking to buy their way into the ranks of the British peerage. So when railroad heiress Summer Wine Lee offers him a king’s ransom if he’ll teach her to become a proper lady, he’s prepared to rebuff her. But when he meets the petite beauty with the knife in her boot, it’s not her fortune he finds impossible to resist…

For the arms of another man Frontier-bred Summer Wine Lee has no interest in winning over London society—it’s the New York bluebloods and her future mother-in-law she’s determined to impress. She knows the cost of smoothing her rough-and-tumble frontier edges will be high. But she never imagined it might cost her heart…

From acclaimed author Kathryne Kennedy comes a delightful new take on the romantic classic My Fair Lady. As a Wild West beauty takes Victorian London by storm, the devilishly handsome duke she’s hired to instruct her in proper deportment begins to wonder if his unconventional pupil might be perfect just the way she is...

State Fair

Heather, Austin and I went to our State Fair today and had so much fun and took lots of pics.

Where are they you ask??? Well, when I went to upload them the stupid camera, connector OR combination w/computer the pics froze up and only 2 were saved, UGH!!! We had so many cute pics and now nothing, very disappointing. I for sure need to try to get a new camera w/memory card and hope this never happens again. sniff, sniff

Wizard World Comic-Con WOW

WOW, Austin and I went to our 1st comic-con in Rosemont Ill yesterday and we had such a fantastic time!!

We went to see Luke Goss of HellboyII because my friend Jeri runs his site and I am a fan but I had no idea until she posted about it. He is such a wonderful and generous person!! We are already planning to go next year too.

We also Dined with Demons which included Luke, Doug Jones and Camden Toy, courtesy of Derek Maki of Coolwaters Productions LLC. He treated us like VIPs, again thank you for a great time. Doug and Camden were also very nice and funny. All involved made this a memorable experience. Cameron Bright (New Moon) even came to the dinner to talk to Luke, which was cool too.

I chated with Margot Kidder (Superman), Jason Meraz (New Moon), Ernie Hudson (Ghostbusters), Jake Busey (Starship Troopers), Ray Park (X'Men) & Michael Papajohn (Spiderman, Transformers 2, True Blood) and saw many others which was fun. Would have liked to talked to Rhona Mitra (Underworld:Rise) but didn't want to wait in the line, but saw her and Michelle Rodriquez, both very pretty ladies.
Also thank you goes to, who offered a very nice prize: BFG Tech Ge Force graphic card, which Austin really wanted. Now to get that new computer I need to let him use it, lol.

Still bummed hockey is over........

It's not even been a week and I am still so bummed that our hockey season is over. :(

They should have won, they were the better team, but for some reason they blew the 7th game of the playoffs. This is what everyone looks forward too, a game 7 to decide who will advance. After a 7-0 victory last Monday to just fall apart on Wed, it was just so sad. I feel bad for the guys too, I know they tried, it just didn't look like it. No control of the game at all. Most of them will not return next yr to the Ads, including my fav player and that makes it even sadder. I wish them all the very best in their transactions and hopefully they will go to teams where they are happy and are appreciated.

I did get my jersey in time and thanks to my friends, they got it signed for me and I wore it Wed night.

They come home......

:-) Sigh of relief that the Ads won their last rd game in Houston to bring the game back home on Monday. It is and was so nerve racking to see them go from 4-1 score to final 4-3 with 3 mins left. It is so hard to watch right now, because they have to play everything so well and win or they are done for the season. They have the ability to win, now just need to make sure they do!!

I am also waiting for a jersey that I finally gave in and purchased of my fav player, it was a great offer, so I treated myself, but I thought I'd get it Monday in time for the game, only to find out now I won't get it til Tuesday, so now I'm sad and frustrated about that and am trying very hard to figure out how to get it sooner. Or of course, I hope they win Mon and then play again Wed, now I really like the sound of that!! I have no much going on now, that all I want is alittle happiness, even it's a hockey game win or getting my jersey signed before he leaves.
So, all my friends out there keep you fingers crossed for me, ok. ;-)

I am so bummed right now. :( The Admirals are not playing very well in this round and they are so much better than the team they are playing. They lost 1 of 2 games at home last week, which is not goo, but they came off a long reat time in between series and lost yesterday in the opposing teams city and they play there again tomorrow and Sat and MUST pull it off and show up to play and WIN!!!! If they win 1 of the 2 they return home and then MUST win the last 2 games to advance. I know they can do this, they just need to come together as a team again and do it!

It is heart wrenching to see them lose, esp at home, but I'd like to see them again either way, of course I want them to WIN though. Just wanted to speak outloud, so to speak.

It is so hard when you have a passion and you have to let it go, even for only a short time until it returns, I'm not ready for hockey to end yet, it's not June. ;)

Admirals Sweep the 1st round!!

The Milwaukee Admirals sweep the Icehogs in the first round on the playoffs. WOOHOO!!!!!

I am so happy about my fav line of Jed Ortmeyer, Mike Santorelli and Ryan Jones. They dominated the 4th game with all points scored!! Jed had a goal and 3 assists, Mike had a hat trick (3 goals), also an assist and Ryan 2 asists. The team was outstanding!

Now the waiting game of seto see who we play in the next round, either Houston or Peoria. Hoping for Peoria, Ill. for possible road trips. We were supposed to have a game tomorrow night, but since they won, our next game is not until next Thursday.

It's playoff time!

WOOHOO!! I am so happy that our AHL hockey team made it to the playoffs. They clinched their division and almost won in overall points, didn't lost out by much at all. And we get our players back from their parent club in the NHL, the Nashville Predators. I am hoping they go all the way, they have a great team this year!
Root with me!
