A Taste of Spring/Where Frank and Paco are Having Breakfast Saturday

There may be 6 more weeks of winter, but the next few days will be more like a taste of spring with much of the country enjoying milder temperatures. There will be some spotty snow Thursday from the Great Lakes to Norfolk, Virginia. Look for rain along the west coast. Coldest temperatures will be in the northeast and around the Great Lakes with highs in the teens and 20s.

Houston will be sunny and delightful...starting at about 40 and ending up close to 70. Temperatures will warm slightly each day into the weekend with some clouds and higher humidity starting on Friday.

Let's do pancake or panqueque, pronounced pahn-K-K. If you want some fun and yummy panqueques, don't miss the Junior Service League's pajamas and pancakes event this Saturday 2/7.

And Frank and Paco will be there Saturday, talking to all the girls and boys. DVDs will be on sale with half the proceeds benefitting the event.

If you can't make it Saturday, you can always 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

Yes indeed, Frank and Paco are very excited about Saturday's Pajamas and Pancakes. Here is some of the information.

Jump out of bed and join us February 7, 2009 from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm for the second annual Pancakes & Pajamas Children's Festival, presented by Fort Bend Junior Service League and Richmond Bone and Joint Clinic.
