Big Weather Pattern Shift/Meet someone special on Facebook

From one side of the country to the other...the trough that has been so dominant over the eastern U.S. is flattening and a new trough is digging out west. My sister, who has a retail business on Lake Tahoe, said there has just not been enough snow and that combined with a weakened economy is just killing business. Well the good news is that on Friday there will be snow in the higher elevations of the Sierra Nevada, Intermountain Region and Rockies. Don't cancel those spring break skiing plans just yet.

It will be in the 20s and 30s across the northeast on Friday. Out west in the lower elevations, there will be rain and temperatures in the 40s. Southern plains, southwest and southeast will be in the 50s, 60s and 70s with sunshine.

Houston on Friday will be noticeably milder but still very comfortable with lows in the 50s and highs in the 70s. Humidity will be higher. Next front won't arrive until Wednesday. A sprinkle or two is possible each day with the most likely time for rain being on Wednesday.

Let's do delightful or muy agradable, pronounced muee ah-grah-dah-BLAY. I think today's weather was muy agradable.

When I was a little girl and my mom had her 5th and 6th children toddling around, we had a Spanish speaking maid--especially since there were some health problems for a while. My little sister and brother often used Spanish instead of English. It was just so cute. Their little minds had no problem handling both languages and research shows that their minds are stimulated and even develop better when exposed to more than one language. Let your kids enjoy a similar experience--order our award-winning DVD, Let's Learn Spanish with Frank & Paco from our web site You can also order from,,,,,, and If you are more interested in a full immersion type product, go to

Getting ready for the Pancakes and Pajamas event this Saturday from 9 am to 2 pm. Will have some goodies for the kids (and parents please don't be mad at me). I also got some fun balloons to decorate. Frank and Paco are both so excited. By the way, you can talk to Frank the Horse on Facebook. Yep! He has his own Facebook account. Just go to and look for Frank the Horse.

Finally, tonight, I frequently talk about Sarah. But I just want you all to know that I am just as proud of Megan. Megan is working very hard right to become a veterinary assistant. We watch a lot of animal planet and enjoy sharing animal information. I just want to give her a big pat on the back. If all goes well, she will get her certification in August. You go girl!

Happy Friday everyone!
