bad winter

my grandson and some of his friends hit an icy patch of road and flipped their car over. He ended up with a concussion and a broken nose, but thank God this was the worst they had.

This handy little device was a Christmas present. I don't have cable tv so I am limited to the television I can watch, just local channels; But with this gizmo I can use my nook to broadcast tv, movies, youtube and other things from the internet. I will be purchasing a membership to Netflix soon to catch up on my movie watching.

D and D both received Nooks from me for Christmas. They love them and both are reading a lot. D is reading short chapter books (he is in 1st grade) and D is reading the "read to me" books. Since I am such a voracious reader, I want the littles to be readers too! I tell them that if they can read they can do anything.

The first snow storm of 2014. Again about 1 foot, minus degrees below 0, car doors frozen shut, water pipes burst in another building in complex, I hate winter :(
