Life is like this sometimes…

Posted by Admin on July 1, 2006

Dear Readers,

Apologies again are due as I have not been able to gather the news links for the last week.  As you know, our cat passed away last week.  It’s hard to lose a pet, as anyone who has experienced it will tell you.

Then, just as our household was getting back to normal, I received a call from my sister letting me know that our Grandmother had passed away.

Despite the fact that my Grandmother lived a long, rich life – she was 91 – it is still sad to let someone go that you love — even if you, like me, believe that they are happy being reuinited with other loved ones who have gone before and are happy where they are.

I am also trying out some new medication to help combat the back/shoulder/neck pain and headaches I have been experiencing the last 6 months or so.  Therefore, my intended short break from collecting links is going to be a little longer than expected.

Again, I apologize for any inconvenience and I appreciate all of your understanding.

– Michelle

Some sad news…

Posted by Admin on June 24, 2006

Dear Readers,

We apologize for not being able to bring you the daily round-up of World & National News Links yesterday & today.  

My family is currently dealing with the loss of our beloved cat "Binx".  It is believed he was hit by a car about 6 weeks ago and he has been battling back from fractures and infection since that time.  Yesterday, he just couldn't hold on any longer.  He seemed to be in very little pain, and not too aware.  He died peacefully early this morning.

Our daily news links will most likely resume on Monday.
Thank you for your understanding,
Michelle K.
