Hurricane Update

Thanks to Wendy, Pnut, Phil and mom for the kind words regarding my family's ordeal with this hurricane. As of 8:00pm CST my mom, dad and grandmother are in Ft Walton Fl. They will be heading South. I talked to a cousins wife who left and is in Birmingham Alabama now. Her husband (my cousin) and my biological dad stayed in her house. They are already drinking and are going to ride it out. At least she was smart enough to take her son and leave. They are showing Biloxi on the weather channel now and are talking to the Mayor.

I wish all of my family would have left. They seem to think that since we all made it through Camille, they will be ok now. I was 4yrs old when Camille hit. I dont remember much except that our neighbors roof blew off their house and they lived to tell about it.

My wife just hung up with my father in law. He and mom in law live 2 blocks from the beach in Gulfport in an older wooden house. I hope he is going to leave his house. My mom in law was called to her work at the local hospital.

Dad in law, if you read this, please go to the hospital. Debbie and I are very worried about you. I know you dont want to go sit around there, but at least it's a concrete building, and you will be with mom.

I am just worried sick about family, friends and less fortunate people back in my home towns of Biloxi, Gulfport and Longbeach, MS. My thoughts and prayers go out to EVERYONE along the entire Southern coast.

When is it supposed to hit exactly? Tonight?? I cannot imagine. I have been through a few tornados as a kid, but never a hurricane....praying for all in the hurricanes path....

paul, just want to let you know my thoughts are with you and I hope your family is OK. I know Katrina weakened considerably before it hit the coast but it was still dangerous.
Let us know when you can.

Majority of Blogspot Blogs Are Spamblogs?
Google Blogoscoped performed an interesting experiment using a search URL to bring up random blogs hosted by Google's Blogspot, then evaluating those sites.
Blogging is fun! You have a nice one. If you drink coffee then I would consider switching to healthy coffee

You have a knack for
writing. I read about 20
blogs a day, and skim about
30 more, so I mean it! We
can all use improvement, but
you certainly are better than
most I've read.

I'm going to be starting a blog
soon, about seo keyword
(I know, it sounds strange!) but
if you don't mind, I might drop
you a line just to get a little advice.
Ok?

Thanks kindly.

Liked your Blog. You make it look too easy. I'm working on a site called Wedding Favors. It incorporates words like inexpensive wedding favor , which might be confusing. Have any ideas ? ---Jack---
