Not quilting but...

Hi Everyone,

I hope this Friday finds everyone safe and well....My thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by Hurricane Sandy..  I have sooooo many fond memories of vacationing for years (since childhood) on Long Beach Island, New Jersey.  My aunt (my mom's only sister/sibling) had a seaside home on the Island.  All my summers were spent there along with my three sisters.  My aunt and uncle actually lived in Haddonfield, New Jersey, but spent their summers at the "shore" and we were apart of those summers.   Both my aunt and uncle have passed away years ago, but they taught us the love of the great Atlantic Ocean and it's seaside communities.  All our vacations after they died have been in the Outer Banks, North Carolina because we still love and cherish the Ocean and all it's Beauty.  I wish there was something I could do sitting here in the midwest, I feel so helpless!!  If anyone knows of anyone from Illinois and how to help, please email me, my heart goes out to all those people and I feel so helpless!

In other words....my ideas on the New York Marathon....I know people have trained and planned, but ARE THEY SERIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  People are out of power and no heat or food and they are thinking of progressing with this Marathon????

And while I am on a role here -- where is Obama and Romney????   First 911 Attack on our Embassy and Now this Hurricane...HELLO  - Campaigning - I am sooooo sick of this Election....the fighting the dirty ads....bottom line America needs help!!!

OK I'm done with my ranting....again anyone in IL who knows of helping the East Coast, please let me know,

God Bless Everyone,

Mary
