Where To Go Ski/Lucky and Unlucky Number 13

Well, make your ski plans now...because the snow is coming to the Sierra Nevada. A series of storms will bring snow to the higher elevations over the next 5 to 6 days. When you go, don't forget to visit my sister's store (on the north side). It's called Mountain Casuals. There will be a few thunderstorms around southern Louisiana. Look for a few snow showers from northern Minnesota (where highs will be in the teens) to Denver and into the Rockies and Intermountain Region.

Houston will be mild...starting in the 50s and ending in the low 70s. There will be a few showers with rain more likely on Saturday. Next front arrives early Sunday.

Let's do thirteen or trece, pronounced threh-SAY. I consider trece to be a very lucky number when that is the number ordered by a distributor.

Yes, we do have a couple distributors of our award winning DVD, Let's Learn Spanish with Frank & Paco. The more orders we get into and, the more likely it is that the DVD will be allowed to go on their shelves in stores. You can always get it at You can also order from,,,,,, and If you are more interested in a full immersion type product, go to

In honor of Friday the 13th, I did some checking around...the most common reason given that Friday the 13th is considered unlucky is that with Doubting Thomas at the Last Supper, there were 13 people at the table. And, Jesus was crucified on a Friday.

Now consider this...the name Saddam Hussein has 13 letters. Yet, luckily he was caught on December 13, 2003. Here's another favorable use of 13--the United States began with 13 colonies. And for me personally, I can think of at least one very dear person, whose birthday is on the 13th.

If you don't like Friday the 13ths, got a double whammy for you...not only is this Friday a Friday the 13th but because February (non-leap years) only has 28 days, we get another Friday the next month (in March).

Have a safe and happy Friday everyone!
