Weekend Forecast/Trouble with Google Adwords

An early post today as I will be busy with all kinds of little ghosts and goblins.

Here's a treat...there is nothing disturbed (of note) in the tropics.

Weekend weather will be mild for the southern half of the country. Look for highs in the 30s and 40s for northern New England and in the 50s and 60s for the northwest and intermountain region (their coolest day will be Sunday). There will be rain for the northwest and intermountain region and some rain and thunderstorm in the southeast (mainly Sunday).

Houston area weather for the weekend...lows in the 50s and highs in the 80s with somewhat humid conditions. No rain is expected until at least Wednesday. Trick or treat temperatures tonight will be in the 60s and 70s.

Let's do fun or diversiĆ³n, pronounced dee-vair-SYOWN. Halloween is wonderful diversiĆ³n. And after trick or treating, you say it was great fun or fue muy divertido, pronounced fway mooey dee-vair-TEE-doh.

Adriana Gutierrez, our spanish teaching friend suprema, offered her site as a great place for kids to access language learning information. So check it out:

And of course, with the holidays right around the corner, the perfect gift for little ones is our award winning DVD, Volume 1 of Let's Learn Spanish with Frank and Paco, a Dr. Toy Top 10 Educational Product for 2008. You can order it from,,,,,,, and

Please note that this Sunday at 2 am, Daylight Saving Time ENDS. Remember to turn your clocks back (fall back) one hour before going to bed Saturday night.

Does anyone use Google Adwords? About a week ago, I checked my stats on my Google Adwords account and saw that there had been no activity (no impressions/no clicks) for some time. I went through the help with multiple back and forths with Google Adwords and they just kept referring me back to their online help info. Well, finally I gave up and set up a whole new account. Guess what? Nothing again. Now, keep in mind that I had been using Google Adwords successfully for a very long time and had made no changes in setup around the time it stopped working. By the way, I also use Yahoo's similar product. Anyway, I contacted their help again (of course you know there is no phone number). You just have to exchange emails. This time one tech said hmmmm....there appears to be a technical problem. Yes! Yes! Yes! I had also told them several times that they are not making any money off me if I am not getting clicks. If I set up a brand new account without getting it to work, surely this is happening to other folks. Will let you know what I find out.

Well gotta run--it's Halloween you know!

Happy Halloween!
