Really...You Need to Prepare for Ike!


Sorry this is so late...little one has been sick and we just got back from the doctor.

Now, I'm not saying that Ike will definitely hit the Houston of my favorites, GFDL is off to the right. But, the models are starting to cluster more and they as a group are averaging on an upper Texas coast landfall on Saturday.

Cash, gas, prescriptions...these are priorities all week. Of course you need supplies. Make copies of important documents and send them to a safe place beyond the danger zone. Make your contingency plans--stay or go. Let family and friends know your plans. Document all property and send the records outside the area (or make sure in waterproof containers). Think about how to protect your property and begin preliminary steps (i.e. purchasing plywood and plylox clips or other means to affix).

Ike is emerging on the south side of Cuba. It will probably make one more landfall (on the west side of Cuba) before it gets into the Gulf.

This weeks and humid...a few showers.

We did hurricane about the Spanish word for storm, tormenta pronounced tore-men-tah.

Here's some more research about learning Spanish:
A report on the Culver City Spanish Immersion Program designed for the bilingual education of English speaking student learning Spanish showed definite patterns emerging following the second year. The English speaking students were acquiring competence in understanding, speaking, reading, and writing Spanish, while maintaining English language proficiency.

This comes from Cohen, A.D. (1974). The culver CitySpanish immersion program: The first two years. The Modern Language Journal, 58(3), 95-103. from Linguistics and Language Behavior Abstracts Database.

Before the holiday and party rushes, you can get a jump on gifts by ordering my award winning DVD, Let's Learn Spanish with Frank & Paco from from, Ventura's Educational Supply, Dolo Publications, Carlex Inc., The Curious Mind Store,,, and

Do you just hate set in stains? That one commercial (where the lady throws a washing machine out her window) cracks me up. Well I have a lot of those because Sarah drink and dribbles chocolate milk all the time. Try some Resolve. Spray it on and let it sit. Come back in an hour. You will be amazed and how it dissolves the stain without ruining the fabric. Amazing!!!

Be safe everyone!
