Good news! I had an interview the first day I arrived! I barely had enough time to take a shower and blow dry my new do! I did my best not to yawn during the interview since I had been driving all night. It's allot of work. But I made it. I must have done a good job cause they called me back for a second interview. I got the call today and they offered me the job! I will be a Flight Dispatcher. Dispatching an air ambulance, service, as well as selling fuel for air crafts. The company also charters flights for golfers who are coming into the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort. It's a wide range of things I will be doing. I figure it's all good experience! Well I have to close for now I am at the library and can hear the lady behind me Sighing really loudly waiting for her turn on the Internet. Why do all Librarians look the same? It will be awhile before I have my own Internet so I will not be posting as frequently as usual. Till next time take care!

Hello every one! We are officially moving. I know it took some by surprise. We are so excited! We have been wanting to move for awhile. We were just waiting until we were ready! So our lease was up! School was out! Justin had been laid off due to cut backs. And the baby is still a baby! We did not want our family missing out on the baby years. We knew we wanted to plant our family back in Oregon where all of our family is. So one day I asked why are we waiting to be happy? Lets just go for it. I'll be working with my mom starting as soon as I get down there while Justin goes to school. I'm still going to try to get on at the Airport in North Bend. I've had 7 wonderful years with Alaska and have so many wonderful friends I'm leaving behind. That's my only regret is that I can not take them all with me. But that just means I'll be back to visit in the future!

Recently I have been paying more attention to the plight of Mexico and it is a very serious situation. I've gone on vacation three times to Mexico and enjoyed the little bubble that tourists are in at the resorts. It's very deceiving. Vacationers are treated like Royalty and we eat like pigs and throw out what we don't finish on our plates. We come away feeling satisfied that we have contributed our part because we spent our money at a resort in Mexico. But there is so much wide spread corruption I wonder who owns and runs the resorts we are staying at and how much the employees are really paid? The drug cartel's have more money than it's own government. Here is a recent story that just happened. This is our neighboring country we should really be concerned. At the end of the story it gives details on what the president of that country is doing to fight the drug cartel. If our president had to deploy 45,000 military in our country and 10,800 people have died so far due to this corruption and violence I would want to get my family the heck out of dodge too. The Military and Police are so scared that they hide their face's when giving the media a tour of the scene because they don't want to be recognized and end up on the cartel's hit list. Which the Cartel posts around town with a list of names of who they are going to kill next. Even Journalist's.

ACAPULCO, Mexico - Mexican soldiers fought a two-hour battle with heavily armed men holed up at a house in an Acapulco hotel zone, killing 15 of the gunmen as Mexican tourists cowered in their rooms nearby.
One soldier was killed and the wounded included three soldiers and three bystanders. Several Mexican tourists were evacuated from small hotels in a faded neighborhood once frequented by Hollywood stars.
When soldiers arrived at the house on a tip, the gunmen opened fire and hurled some 50 grenades, according to an Army colonel, who wore a ski mask to protect his identity as he led reporters on a tour of the scene Sunday. He spoke on condition of anonymity for security reasons. Some gunmen tried to flee Several gunmen tried to flee, but crashed their car into a military Hummer that was blocking the gate. At one point, more armed men with grenades arrived by car to reinforce the gunmen in the house, but they died in the shooting, the colonel said.
Soldiers found four Guerrero state police officers handcuffed inside the garage of the house, the colonel said. The officers, who were still bound and sitting the floor when reporters arrived, said they'd been held captive by the gunmen, the colonel said.
Soldiers did not know the police were inside when the shootout began late Friday night, and the colonel said their claims would be investigated.
"We found them like this, handcuffed, and they say they were kidnapped. So if they were kidnapped, as they say, then we rescued them," he said.
Residents cowered inside their homes and at several low-cost hotels during the battle. When the shooting subsided, several frightened people were evacuated by ambulance, including 15 Mexican tourists from a small hotel, a family of four from another hotel, a pregnant woman with her mother from their home, and an elderly man.
Two men and a woman were caught in the gunfire and wounded, paramedics said.
The gun battle raged just blocks from a residence owned decades ago by the late "Tarzan" actor Johnny Weissmuller, and about 100 meters (yards) from Hotel Los Flamingos, owned in the 1950s by John Wayne. The hotel is still popular with older American tourists.
Not clear if gunmen belonged to cartel It was unclear whether the gunmen belonged to one of drug cartels that have been fighting for turf in Guerrero state, home to Acapulco and the resort town of Zihuatanejo, the colonel said.
The Beltran Leyva cartel, in particular, has a strong presence in Acapulco. Last month, soldiers arrested a suspected cartel lieutenant as he stepped off a private plane in the northern city of Monterrey on his way back from Acapulco, where he said he met with Arturo Beltran Leyva at a baptism party held by the most-wanted cartel leader. Soldiers confiscated 47 guns, grenades and ammunition at the large, gated house, which stood out among its more modest neighbors. Several cars were also seized from the property, including a Mercedes Benz.
President Felipe Calderon has deployed more than 45,000 soldiers across Mexico to battle drug violence. More than 10,800 people have died since the offensive began in December 2006.

Third grade math!

I'm helping my third grader with her fractions. And I'm pretending I know more than I really do. I coast along getting thru most of the math page agreeing with her answers. She seems to know what she is doing. Then she gets to the challenge part and she's stumped but we manage to come up with some answer's that look like they might be close. Then she reads the last question and in the spirit of just getting it done she whispers "Can I just write I don't know?". Which is precisely what I was already thinking! lol.... I could not help but laugh....... Great I can't wait for 4th grade.
