Tropical Update/Rain for the Weekend/The Hannah Montana Movie

Active area near the Bahamas is on the verge of becoming a tropical storm. Next name is Claudette. In the Pacific, Ignacio is taking a path to the northwest...not threatening any land area. There are also 2 other areas to watch.

On Wednesday, highs will be in the 90s and 100s in Texas and the Desert Southwest. Highs will be in the 90s for much of the country. It will be mild along west coast, Great Lakes, northern New England. Many areas will have thunderstorms but no severe storm risk areas have been designated by the Storm Prediction Center.

In Houston, it will be more hot and humid weather with isolated thunderstorms. Look for more widespread storms over the weekend and early in the coming week.

Let's do climb or subida, pronounced sue-BEE-dah. I love Hannah Montana's song about life being a subida. Check it out in the AND MORE section.

Well the climb continues...finished the technical review on Volume 2. So, after the final edits, we will order the first 1000 copies. In the meantime, you can order our award winning Let's Learn Spanish with Frank & Paco, Volume 1. Order from www.frankandpaco.com/.

Working on content for the segment being shot soon for the Positively Houston pilot. They have a web site:
On the sports side, it's a small world as I worked with Steve Mark when I first joined FOX. Anyway, I will be in the pilot and if that goes well, I will be involved with a regular show.

So you know this summer is hot, but here's something you may not know. For Houston, the period June 1st through August 20th is the warmest on record!!! No wonder the pools felt like hot tubs. Meanwhile, my in-laws in Council Bluffs Iowa finally got some warm weather...although Mom P. did say they were in the 50s over the weekend. Check out the complete report form the Houston National Weather Service.


Megan brought over The Hannah Montana Movie and we enjoyed watching it over the weekend. We had taken Sarah to see it when it was first released to the movie theaters. The movie is really well done and I absolutely love the song about Life's a Climb...it talks about how you need to enjoy what you are going through...you'll always have goals and difficulties...just keep going and enjoy the present while you keep trying. That certainly has been how my life has been these past 2 years since I left television. I have so relished Sarah and family time while working hard to launch my DVD series etc. It has been very hard and very fulfilling.

Finally, I was thinking about all the great, dedicated teachers I know, especially where Sarah is attending school. I was so blessed to have wonderful teachers. I especially feel a tremendous debt to Mr. Edwin Bates, my high school math and science teacher. He had a graduate degree from MIT. Yet, he chose to return to the Rio Grande Valley and teach and farm. He changed my whole life! I'll never forget.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
