Sad, Senseless and Tragic.

Over 600 Students Attended the prayer service tonight...
Early this morning, a Sophomore from Seton Hall University passed away from a gun shot injury...she was attending an off campus party, 1 mile from campus.  Such a senseless, tragic loss.  All because someone was not welcomed into this party returned with a gun (he was not a SHU Student).  Our son lives off campus, it's very common for upper classmen to move off campus - my heart skipped a beat when I heard about this incident.  I was on campus this morning, security was very tight - I immediately knew something was wrong.  After finding out  about this crime, I called campus security, once assured it was not his house, I finally exhaled... all those other worries I've been consumed with seemed so trivial...the fear of getting "bed bugs", wrong book ordered, stitches from Rugby...  Gene phoned me after he and his roommates attended the prayer service...I was so happy to hear his voice!    Please keep Jessica's family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.

Indian Summer ~ Blah!

"An Indian summer is a meteorological phenomenon that occurs in autumn, in the Northern Hemisphere. It is characterised by a period of sunny, warm weather, after the leaves have turned following an onset of frost, but before the first snowfall."

So.... this 88 degree weather is NOT even an Indian Summer Day... it just feels that way! Call me weird, but, I've never been a fan of Indian Summer Days... once it "starts" to feel like the fall and get cool, don't throw me a curve ball with a "hot" day...
I. Just. Don't. Like. It.

Instant Gratification!

I JUST called one of my sisters, she answer's and I hear the wind blowing...
"Sheila, Where are you"???....

"I'm on my new bike, I just bought it!
You're talking to me while riding a bike? (Come 'on ~  does that NOT sound more dangerous then driving a car)?
Yeah?? Why not??  I love it, it's so pretty, it's yellow and blue - hey, hold on, I'll take a picture and send it to you.
Wah Lah...

In less then 1 pop's up on my computer....
Who would have ever thought???  Gone are the days of anticipating and waiting for our "pictures to be ready"...
Talk about instant gratification!!!
And... I love it, too!
