I bought a copy of Brian & Wendy Froud's The Heart of the Faerie Oracle when I was at Ren Con. I have never been much for Tarot or any form of "fortune telling/predicting" so it was mostly for the art that I made the purchase. Out of curiosity I have been pulling one card per day since then. They are undoubtedly beautiful so even if it were only for the chance to spend a little time each morning with the Froud's work I would still pull a card, but I have to confess that each card I have pulled has either pinpointed my current situation to a tee or given me something really important to think about for the day.
I started a Facebook Fan page recently. Facebook and I don't seem to get along well. I am not exaggerating when I say it took me over 6 hours to get my first picture to load successfully. I have had marginally better luck since then. But it is still making me nuts that I can have in excess of 4 dozen "upload failed" messages before I give up and try a different image. It does not seem to matter what size the image is, or if it's been edited or what I used to open the photo on my computer - facebook just does not want to work or play well with me or my computer. But I keep trying... if anyone would like to check out my fan page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/ToadstoolsNTreestump/113120242050436?ref=ts
My kids are both in school bands, my daughter is in several. After years of limited success trying to volunteer at my kids schools high school music programs usually have a variety of jobs they need volunteers for. Over this past school year I have tried a lot of those "music booster" jobs, chaperoning, flag sewing, making things to sell at the booster table, equipment moving (a little), and what ever else I can do when it needs to be done. What is my reward for being helpful and involved? I've just been elected president of the music boosters. This should be interesting.
