The Loss of a Friend to Breast Cancer

My community lost a Friend to Breast Cancer May 19, 2008. Patty was also a Wife and Mother of to young daughters. So I write this post to remind everyone including men(to remind the women in their lives) that it is important to pay attention to our bodies. Go get a mammogram, do self breast examinations, go to your Gyn. once a year. Mom's are a special people and take care of so many often at the expense of their own health. Here is a link to the Breast Cancer organization. Hopefully this post will help all of us to take care of ourselves too.

Improving your Blog

Last month was Improve your blog month at Frugal Upstate. Only I didn't get the chance to mess with it. Thats the thing about blogging unless your really swift on the computer there is a lot of messing around. So I tried to get the banner it didn't work for me cause where do I put that code thingy in the first place. But oh well I did change the background of the blog and I did try to figure out some things. I made it so I can be emailed and just spent some time "messing" with it. I need to figure out how to take the old post and just clear them and put them under some labels, but it seemed that nothing really was in plain talk for me. However I have decided not only to speak of frugal things, but life in general. I thought this might be a blog about well everything that can come under the label as dirt. You know dirt that muddles up the house, relationships, finances, etc. . Even some more posts about religion...mostly Catholicism. So there you have it a change....seems as though there has been a lot of talk about change. This isn't a big change just me trying to blog a bit more as you can see its not been since February that I wrote anything. So here's to blogging.
