Grandma Glenny

My sweet grandma passed away on Saturday April 5th from complications to open heart surgery she had had earlier in the week. I was able to get a few days off and fly home for the funeral. It was a nice service and so wonderful to be with my family for a few days. Its times like this when family is most precious to me in my life. I'm grateful we were all there to support each other. The weather was so beautiful and I realized how much I miss Arizona.

Family Members who were unable to come: Joe Mason (Kirbi's Husband), Lillabeth Ann Mason (Great-Grand Child #1 and Kirbi's First), Victor Tanori (Lori's Boyfriend).

My siblings (this isn't even all of them).

Attention ALL Bloggers....

Are you tired of clicking on everyone's blog to see if they've recently posted...just to find out that it's still the SAME post from TWO weeks ago!?!?!? If this is you and you seem to be frustrated at the fact that there is no other solution to this madness...look no further than Google Reader!!!!! This is the best invention!!! All you have to do is click on "Add subscription", paste in the URL and voile!!! You have subscribed to your first Blog.

The best part about Google Reader is that it will tell you when someone has updated their blog. Also (my favorite feature), you can subscribe to anyone's blog that allows RSS feed (x-boyfriend, friend of a friend, your boyfriend's x-girlfriend). Basically, it's pretty sweet AND you can manage your subscriptions, classify them into groups and such.

I won't be disappointed once you start with Google Reader!!!! :)
