When our youngest son was an infant, I read the Vietnamese 'Boat People' (refugees fleeing civil war who sought to reach safety in the United States) brought a certain influenza to our shores for which American babies had no immunity. The article mentioned the influenza was contracted through hands touching things infected people had touched so I immediately made a note to…

And so it came to pass that for one entire season during the '80's Carla, as the 9-Hole Captain and I, as Eclectic Chair, giggled our way through recording golf scores for members and grew to become rock solid

Thank you for "friending" me, MCatherine!  I love this site.  What do you write?  I am the author of 12 books (2 non-fiction, the rest various genres).  My newest is my first self-pub.  It's called The Only Way to Paradise. Story of 4 women who ditch their therapist and go to Florence for healing.  It's uplifting, but scary, as they try to use their own skills to help one another.  They learn about agape (selfless love) from Italians.  Best of all its a great trip to Italy!

McCatherine, Must be a full moon accident waiting to happen for computers...mine is freezing and rebooting by itself, so I completely understand. Hopefully all our devices will be back to normal soon.

Thanks for your comments, MCatherine. I guess you feel like I do when it comes to comments. It is always fun to get them! Next time you come down to visit your family maybe we could grab a cup of coffee. I'd love that. I might even pick your technologically savvy brain about all these sites and the learning curve!
