My new business.

I've discovered this new web based business. I think it could be a wonderful opportunity, if people will actually buy the product. It's "Stuff a Friend", which is similar to "Build a Bear" except that you don't have to go to the store. You order the friend of your choice, clothing and other cool stuff if you want, and it's shipped to your house. Where you can stuff it and make it your own. You can get pre-recorded sound boxes to put in them, or a record your own message. I think it would be fun to have a "Stuff a Friend" party. Anyway, if you want to check it out here is my Web site:

Job search stuff.

Well, things are getting busy around here. Howard and I have to go to job search related classes every morning from 9 to 12. No big deal, really, a bit of a waste of time for us actually, but not too terrible. We have to put in 15 Applications a week, and make copies of each of them to verify that we actually did them. They are going to love the 4 applications from Salem/Keizer Schools, they are 6 pages long. LOL I'm going to give them all 24 pages next week, just for giggles. I'm going to look at jobs here in Hood River too, there aren't many, but it won't hurt to try. I'll look and see if the School system here has a web site, maybe they will have openings similar to those in Salem. I applied at a "Postal Annex", one of those mail-store-print centers. It's only part time, but might be fun. It wouldn't use my education or my other skills, but I'd get to talk to people.

Aidan loves his Daycare. He was mad for 20 minutes because we brought him home. Oh well, I'm sure he will get over it sooner or later. I got in contact with EI (Early Intervention) about his speech issues. We will probably not hear from them until the end of August because they are sort of on Holiday right now. I'm also thinking of doing Daycare myself. I don't know though. I'd like to be with Aidan until he goes to school. But I'd also like to have a job ... Oh well, I have to get a job so it doesn't really matter.

Fourth of July fireworks.

Here are a few firework pictures. There are my first try at capturing fireworks, so they are a bit shaky.

The fourth of July in a small town.

We had a nice fourth. Even though I spent most of the day with a headache. We went down town to watch the Parade. It was nice in a very small town kind of way. Aidan collected alot of candy and a couple of stickers.

Here is a crowd shot with the girls we were there with.

There were some runners, this one had his kids with him. They came down from Odell, which is about 7 miles away.

These fighter planes flew over at 10:15 AM.

Little horses, and cute kids.

A guy on a uni-cycle. (We were at the bottom of a fairly steep hill, and were very glad he didn't fall)

An interesting old tri-cycle.

Smokey Bear.

Some old planes did slow circles around town.

And a guy balanceing a kayak paddle.
