Noreen, I have read   the recent messages and glad to hear all is well from 
those we have heard from.   It is hard to believe the storm photos and 
hearing the residents plea for help.   Seems to be another Katrina. Auralie, I 
am so sorry you are in the dark.   Hang on my friend and hope there is light 
soon. We were recently without power for 12 hrs and it was the longest 12 
hrs!   We have underground utilies but with the only recent rain which wasn't 
much, water got into the equipment under ground.   
     I am doing well but did not attend the Houston show this year as our 
son has been in the hospital 
since Aug 28 and 31 days was in ICU.   He had a successful surgery but they 
were unable to take him off the vent due to lung failure (ARDS).   He now 
has a trach but unable to breath on his own.   I just had both my cataracts 
taken care of a week apart.   It was painless and hopefully I will not need 
corrective lenses as I paid the extra and got the best lens.   I have mono 
vision lens, one for distance and one for close-up   which is the same as my 
contacts were.
     This has been the most unbelievable year for gardening.   We had 90 
deg weather in March, a big freeze in April, extreme drought which continues 
but a beautiful fall.   I have hopes for a better year next season however 
they are saying to expect the lack of rain to continue.   I have 3 large 
garden tours scheduled in June.
     So glad we have one day remaining till the election.   Obama, Michelle 
and concert team will be in Des Moines   East Village (just at the foot of 
the capital) this evening.   My youngest GD, Nadia, now a kindergarten 
teacher, lives in one of the historical lofts and the bleachers were being setup 
just below her windows. Her sister, Natasha who now lives, works and working 
on her masters in Denver is so envious. 
     Sorry this list is not what it was.   I am not a part of the social 
scene but am a member of Facebook with 2 friends only, no more!   I am only 
there for my spring greenhouse job which uses for means of preseason 
information.   I spend to much time on the computer as is. 
     Best wishes to you all, Ceres (Carolyn)
