The wrath of nature...


Just when you think everything is just bitchin'...
Not much subject matter here,just a couple disjointed thoughts...After untold hours trying to reestablish communications with family and friends in the New Orleans area(unsuccessfully so far)it occurs to me just how powerless we are in the grand scheme of things. Regardless of all our advances in technology,all the accomplishments made are rendered all but useless against the raw power of nature. Sometimes I have to wonder if our priorities might need a little re-examination.... And if nothing else,I,for one,am
going to start taking a lot less for granted...

Yes Please give an update as to what you've found out about friends/family.

Amazing all that we take for granted, isn't it.

Hello...This post is to remind you about the Blogger's Convention scheduled October 21,22,23 and set for the ChicagoLand area(Bolingbrook--a suburb)

It is a chance for you to meet the folk that you have been reading, commenting, and chatting with. Before we go any further, this is NOT a giant sex orgy but a chance to interact with your new found blogging friends face-to-face.

The opening night festivities are still in the planning stage.(I need to have an actual head count on that before I can proceed and make commitments to the banquet facility. But in the plans are a Masked Ball--expected to be a lavish formal affair)

The 46 Zone Party will be held on the evening of the 22nd at the 46 Zone bar attached to the Ditka Dome(enclosed sports dome facility with an indoor driving range) Typically the bar has a live band on Saturday nights (no cover charge to date) The food and drink costs there are reasonable and one can imbibe for about twenty bucks.

There will be an "after" party on the 21st after the Masked Ball; and a "before" and "after" party on the 22nd in the hospitality suite at the hotel to continue on with the festivities. These parties will have food and alcohol/soft beverages and will be bought in bottle form with appetizer platters from local stores. The bar in the hospitality suite would be a serve yourself type of set-up.

The hotel is new and nicely furnished. Complimentary breakfasts are included with the room; the hotel has a pool, workout facility, complimentary wi-fi service, in-room coffee makers, mini refrigerators, iron & ironing board, and laptrays to support your laptops. There is a complimentary coffee bar located off the lobby area which is available 24 hours for a selection of coffees, teas, and hot chocolate. Hotel rates are reasonable and information can be found at Convention Information Pictures of the hotel and its rooms are also available for you to see.

In the works is a photo session opportunity as well as some classes/demos.

If you have not already done so, you are also invited to join bloggers of this friendly site The group was designed to address the technical aspects of blogging, but has metamorphosized into something much more--a "family" of bloggers...many of who will be attending the upcoming Convention.

Thank you for your time and I hope to meet you in person.

I understand your frustration.. I feel it to. A part of me is so callous that I think... wow, I am so lucky... "they" are so not... Ah, I have done the "good" thing.. given to the Red Cross and such..but.. well, that could be us.. could have been. And, there is this other part.. the "dark" part....the reasonable part of sorts, that says...if you knew it was a bad thing, then why did you do it? If you know that where you live has hazzards, you protect your family and friends, as much as you can from them, right? So, when you know something bad is coming down your pike, don't you wanna get to the high ground? I'm not trying to be a shite, I just don't get it I guess in a way. Don't misunderstand me, I feel for all of them and I will do whatever is in my power to help... money is such a small thing to give.. I can not give my time and efforts as I would lose my own job...so I give the money instead. So that make me shallow as I am not "there" but a lotta of my friends are.. so... in a way I am supporting them too... Do I think that our priorities are screwed up.. yes, I do...but therein lies the question.. So we understand, what do we do?

One more thing and then I will go... I had an excellent friend who died of breast cancer..a long and sad story... but..there is a point to what I am about to say. One thing that she taught me, abet it was a difficult thing to get across to me and I was so unaware.... priorities are so important... who you love, who you care about, who is important to you... EVERY day we meet these people..we may shun them as they are not like us..they might not have our "visions" our ideas... hell, they may not even like much of anyone! But they are need our respect and more. Yes, this is "sex" site..this is where we come to hang out ourselves to be as real as we can be.. to be accepted as we can.. we should do that with everyone.. I am rambling...sorry.. I'm gonna go now but I just wanted to say that the next person that you meet, the next person that you may or may not smile at.. well, that person could be the one for you.. open your eyes and hearts... give to everyone that you can.. even those that you feel are victims of a tragedy.. a misjustice...we all have to correct the wrongs of the world... but, we have to make a stand to do so...

Ahh.. enough said, I have rambled on too much...

I have been pretty self absorbed of late and pulled my head out long enough to check in on you.....I am sorry to hear of these harsh concerns...I had friends out there and was fortunate to have them all safe at the end of things...I hope it the same with you, doll. I am sending hugs and all via the net and know that my thoughts are with you. we should be careful not to take those for granted that we love....
