V-A-C-A-TION and Information

Hi All,


Sorry for my infrequent posts this week. My posts will be spotty over the next several weeks. The grandkiddos are enrolled in a few summer sports camps and we've planned some day trips, so I'll be doing a lot of driving--and counting to ten. Yesterday we went to Grant's Farm, and today is my volunteer day at the MO History Museum for the Vatican Splendors exhibit.

Vatican Splendors is a great exhibition; if you get a chance stop by. The tickets are reasonably priced, and the volunteers are so friendly, except when we see someone trying to touch something or take a photo then we have to mace them (just kidding about the mace, we just ask politely not to touch or take photos).


Enough about me. No, wait. One more thing. I will be working on several deadlines for reviews and interviews for Bookreporter in June and July, so that's also got me busy. But on a happy note, it pays well. Can you say, "Cha Ching!"? Now for the good stuff:



To make up for not posting this week, here's a link to a website sent to me yesterday by Fred Pfister, the editor of The Ozarks Mountaineer. I guarantee all writers will find Information Please useful. If you go to the History page and scroll down to Related Content, you can plug in a year and find out what happened. Check out the year you were born. It's fascinating, but also time consuming, which reminds me. I gotta go.


I will try to post at least once next week.


Stay cool!

Donna
