Oh, man, when you'ved added the local gas station to your speed dial, you know that times are getting hard. Two freaking weeks after Ike and we're still hunting for gas? My husband offered someone $10 a gallon for gas.
But it paid off. I called my neighborhood station this morning and she said, "hurry up and get down here" and I did. Good timing.
It's one thing to fill up and let it last you for a week or so if you're fortunate to live close to your usual stops. But it's another thing to fill up and have to drive long distances every day, like from state to state. grrrr
We all have it hard right now if we drive. I just had to sound off a bit.
It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into Blogger.com.
I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed.
Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
