Now on to better news of the day-- the article I wrote about my late Mother was published in today's Danvers Herald. Page 4 and I got my own byline and they want me to write more in the future on a range of subjects! I am so delighted! The article will be online later and I'll post a link.

Also good news-- Sarah Brown is back and looking great! Maybe the show will perk up. It's just too bad they had to let so many other actresses go to pay for Sarah's return. Tight times financially for soaps.

Finally, very good news about Brit Spears going in for medical care. Perhaps she can be saved after all!!!!!

The More Books the Better
