New library





I took my daughter to our new library here in town. It was to replace our smaller library. The place is HUGE! The old one was right by the boats and sat near the water so I loved to go. I would take the time to look out at the water and daydream a bit. This one is downtown near a school, so no more water.

My daughter got her first library card today. She was so proud and wrote her name on the back, well her first one any way. It was so sweet to watch.

I took her into the children’s section to look for books. The look on her face was priceless. She would walk down the aisles and just hand them to me to put in the basket. She kept asking how many more she could get. lol I told her that she could get up to 20 books at a time. She checked out 18 and then got 2 DVD movies.

I didn't check any out and didn't go into the room that sold the old library books. My TBR pile is HUGE and I have no idea when I can get to them all. I was trying really hard to be good. Notice how I said "tried"? We were almost out the door when I saw a sign that said fit as many books into a paper bag and it would only be $2. What!? Yup, I looked and ended up taking 14 books home for myself. LOL They needed a good home.

On the way home my daughter had to read one of her books in the backseat. When we got home I had to read 6 books to her. We both enjoyed every minute of it.

Guest Blogger ~ Lucynda Storey

Guest Blogger - Lucynda Storey

Location: online at Bittenbybooks.com

Join author Lucynda Storey for a fun filled day of questions and information as she Guest Blogs here at BBB! Here's a sampling of her talk:

On a seaside coast, where the sun is warm and the ocean creates a surreal beauty, sits the Del Fantasma bar. Located in beautiful Vista Loma, not far from the Pt. Loma lighthouse, the bar is run by the enigmatic Cody Warren, a vampire with secrets. His clientele varies from coyote shifters to vamps and just about anything in-between. He's been there a while now, and figures he can tell you a tale of love based on just about any drink he's mixed. Why, the fact is, he's been responsible for some of those stories since he has the uncanny ability to make love matches better than any yenta. So, pull up a stool and have a drink at the Del Fantasma. If Cody mixes it for you, you just might find the love of your dreams.

One lucky participant will win a pair of Del Fantasma shot glasses (US only) and a pair of DelFantasma stories, Texas Tea and another of the winner's choice.

11th Anniversary Celebration An Evening with the Stars Gala




It is almost that time of the year for my family. September 10th, 2007 my grandma lost her battle to Pancreatic Cancer. I still can't believe it sometimes that I find myself reaching for the phone to call her and tell her what the kids have done now. For the last year and half I have been trying to spread the word as much as possible. So in November if you can't go to the gala ( In know I can't afford it), please wear purple since November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness month. It would mean a great deal to me and the other families affected by this terrible disease.

As always our annual An Evening with the Stars is dedicated to loved ones who have passed. It is also dedicated to the survivors, caregivers, volunteers, scientists, researchers, policy makers, donors and special friends of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. We honor all of you for helping us accomplish so much and we are grateful for all that you have done for us. We are focused now more than ever on changing the course of history for this disease. Your participation in our annual gala helps move us closer to our goal.
