Good for her.

I could see some events....but one that requires food/ tents/ generators...it seems silly. Those resources could help out.:/

A friend of mine is in the hospital and very ill. She has a spot of pneumonia on her right lung. It's about 25-30% of her lung. Her blood pressure was quite high and they managed to get it down. Her heart rate is about 100 beats per minute. It should be about 70-80. She's in isolation and on a wide spectrum antibiotic. I talked to her husband this afternoon. She was on oxygen and is now off of it. All she wants to do is sleep. I didn't ask to many details because he's so upset. From what I gathered she fell and hit her head. They did MRI's and CAT scans, nothing wrong with her head. Please, if you think of it, pray for her. This is also the friends who lost 2 alpacas on Thursday/Friday and then had a new one born the same time.

Today I need to go early because the out-laws are coming this afternoon to see the new digs.

Hope everyone is doing ok!!

I thought you'd want to go for a run when the out law's were there.

Any city event puts a strain on services, but something as huge as the marathon takes an enormous amount of effort to put on. All that effort needs to be put on getting the city and its residents back up and running, not running a marathon. It would be nice if all the stuff already out for the race could be donated to the storm victims.

Hi everyone. I have been MIA due to computer issues again which are still not resolved. I'm lucky to be on here now. The other day I sat at my computer to find only my background picture. My icons are gone and I have no start up menu. I pressed ctrl alt delete to bring up the windows task manager and opened internet explorer that way. That wasn't working yesterday, but thankfully is today. I also ran 2 scans by using task manager. So frustrating.
