Saturday, Jan.12

Just a short blog of information!

Saturday's agenda:
Before 10 am:  both Push twins are expected to go to their new home TOGETHER!
At 11:00 am: Mayor Anony will give his "the State of the City speech"
Directly after his speech: The Grand Mix Up of Yummy Foods to be given to the Covies
Then we will follow that with: BOX TIME! Since we didn't get to do boxes last night, we will be doing them today--approximately 11:20 am????
2:00 pm--have a program to do for a 4-H group of kids in the next county. 
Evening: Steve, myself, Janet and Val will have a meal together

Busy day!

Yesterday was our program in Bryan for Amy's 4th grade class (Amy is our volunteer). Janet went with me and we had a very nice time. We did two classes, each followed by us opening their Christmas gifts to FFRC. We received paper towels, can food, toys, litter! It was fun. We took Derecho, Weber and my Z Zeke with us. Derecho was unbelievable--he showed them how he walks and seemed to be ok with being there! Amy also brought her cat that was adopted from FFRC. A good day! 

Computer information: Yes, FFRC is getting a new computer system for the webcam. The current one is 1 1/2 years old and has been ran 24/7 this entire time (except when we had the Derecho storm!). As you may know we've been having some problems with the current computer. So, while Janet is still here (for 1 more day), I decided to take the plunge and get a new system while she is still here to get it in place. It would be awful if it went down again and I was not able to get it going--so that is why this decision was made. The "old" computer will get a major cleaning and then kept as a backup. 

Please remember to vote! We're still #1 overall, but just by a slim, small percent! Please help us to stay in #1 position! 

Jaina says--that's all, folks!
