Mid Week Doings

 I had installed a snowing script on the page but it seems that you have to point at the header to make it begin to fall. The cursor also directs the way the snow begins to blow as well. But I wanted a wintery look to the blog but I didn't want it to be a big deal to make it work.

Windows had to be reinstalled with a rescue disk and I am still not sure if this computer will make it but, time will tell. Some programs were lost along the way.

Outside the weather is seasonal but for those still living in shelters here in NJ its not so nice at all.
Many are being scammed by insurance companies as well. Homes damaged by wind are being declared to have been destroyed by water and therefore not covered by the home owners insurance. Rather than getting the price of a new home, they are receiving a few thousand dollars and, in other words, the house is a total loss.  Even those with flood insurance, which is costly, are not getting what they need to rebuild.
It is an on going disaster for those who lost so much already. Please keep them in mind.
Families are living in tents in some places and the weather in winter in NJ is cold and damp. It is the dampness that is the worst.
People have developed severe coughs from mold and mildew also and while money being given to NY/NJ seems like a lot, it isnt half what is needed.  Seaside Heights boardwalk alone is over $13BILLION dollars... and that does not include the neighborhoods and town around that famous boardwalk.

But today is a bit sunny and warmer.. 41 F right now, so -perhaps better for those living outside. I hope anyway.
Whatever you are doing today, I hope it is a sunny day no matter what the weather.


  1. It is warm here too and the snow is melting. Even warmer weather is predicted. I sure hope the people in your area get some much needed help soon.

  2. Hi Annie,
    Sorry you lost some programs but happy you are still able to use your computer. That is sad about the scams and people living in tents. What a disaster :( Brrr you are cold but at least you have the sun out! It is 72 and sunny here today where I am at work :) Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Hugs, Dru

  3. Hi Annie, It is so sad to hear about your community. Also about your back.
    I will be staying with my dad for a few weeks but plan to take my laptop which is also not doing well. Take care. Hugs

  4. The snow script is working fine for me... using google chrome. So sorry money and help are not coming fast enough. Saw Christie on TV this morning and he didn't close the door on running for Pres in 2016- guess the delay has made him mad enough to want to take things in his own hands! I like him and he's a good sport on SNL! I hope there will be some action against insurance companies. :( I have a pumpkin mug exactly like the one in your graphic. It came from blog friend Judy. (((Hugz)))

  5. Hi Annie;

    The snow script is working for me too using Chrome. What a shame to see how those that were hit by Sandy get cheated by insurance companies. They rule our lives in many ways. Something should be done to make them pay. My heart and prayers go out to the families that were hit so hard.
    My son just left after setting me up with a new chair and so far so good. At least I can sit and the pain isn't so bad. Have a good and blessed day ahead dear friend. Hugs


I love hearing your thoughts and your visits mean a lot to me.
