Clouds/Rain Returning/Sell Your Gold?/Special Work of Photographer

Sorry for the delay folks...have had so much going on--including working hard on the release of my next DVD.

There is an area of disturbed weather in the western Caribbean which the National Hurricane Center says has a 40% chance of developing into a tropical storm within the next 48 hours.

The tropical Pacific is quiet.

In the United States, some snow has been falling over the western Great Lakes states and there is are Winter Storm Warnings and Advisories for parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin. No thunderstorms are predicted for Sunday, but there could be snow around Minneapolis and some rain from the Great Lakes southward to the north central Gulf and south Texas.

In Houston, look for the clouds and even some rain to return by late afternoon. There will be some rain overnight Sunday into early Monday. Then look for sunshine to return by Tuesday with lows in the 40s and 50s and highs in the 60s into the coming weekend. There could be some showers the following Sunday/Monday time frame.

Let's go with gold or oro, pronounced OR-oh. Find out how much I got for the oro just sitting in my jewelry box.

Finally! This week we are submitting our order for Volume 3 of our award winning DVD series for children. And we got a large order from Barnes and Noble for their special holiday promotion. You can find my award winning education series, Let's Learn Spanish with Frank & Paco, Volumes 1 and 2, on the shelf (in the education section) at Barnes & Noble stores or you can order them from,,,, or Our ESL (English as a Second Language) version can be found at P.S. THEY MAKE TERRIFIC GIFTS!!!

Fashion Photographer Celebrates Special Needs and Differences
Fashion Photographer Rick Guidotti of Positive Exposures and Dr. Lorraine Potocki, Baylor Geneticist, were special guests at the 7th annual Houston SMS picnic. Gray skies cleared way to perfect fall temperatures and beautiful blue skies. Rick whipped out his camera and started clicking aways as SMS children and their siblings went on a scavenger hunt, played picture bingo, sticker attack, cookie walk and yes, even jeopardy. We can't wait to see all the happy faces he caught. Rick is passionate about capturing all people as the vibrant individuals they are. Rick Guidotti of Positive Exposures will be in Houston on Friday Nov 12th and Saturday Nov 13th. Rick flew into Houston from NYC on Friday to give the Compassion and Art of Medicine Lecture called "The Spirit of Difference".

We sure enjoyed meeting Rick. When he wasn't capturing our families at play, he was busy trying to play himself. But I had to disqualify him from sticker attack--he tried to get credit for a page of stickers that had come straight from a book. Rick, you rascal. When I asked him if he had any children, he hugged Sarah and said, all of these kids are my children.

Want Extra Cash--Sell Your Gold
A friend of mine had a show where many of her friends brought their line of products and sold them all at the same time. She had done this once before and I had missed the opportunity to sell my gold. Well, I had several pieces of gold jewelry which I never wear just collecting dust in my jewelry armoire. So, I pulled them out and gave them to my friend and she got them sold--$560 worth. Trust me folks--it wasn't much jewelry. They even popped out the gems for me and returned them. Then, the other day, I saw a business called We Buy Gold on FM1960 close to the intersection with Eldridge. A quick google revealed there are lots of places which will buy gold. And I even found a calculator which suggested I could sell one ounce of gold for $900. So with gold valued at an old time high (it least some time in the last few weeks), why not sell what you don't use? Like my investment manager said, you can't eat gold. Amen brother!

My poll on whether you think the holidays are coming too fast is closed. 100% answered yes. Thanks to all who participated.

My new poll is about your desire (or lack of desire to sell any gold you have). Only one answer is allowed. Thanks in advance for participating.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
