Same Blog, Different Tool!

Hello Family, Friends, and Visitors!

Yep, I am migrating my Blog from my Previous Software (PS) to WordPress. My PS had failed to save my works-in-progress WAY too many times. 😡

I have abandoned it now and use it to get the transfers to WordPress accurate.

You have probably noticed (or will notice, soon) that my old Blog is somewhat “interesting” now (or you get forwarded automatically).

When my account was updated to work with WordPress, something in my PS did not like the change. 😐

Result: Some miscellaneous characters; and most important, it will not let me post, edit, delete or even access my admin pages.

My new Blog URL is……


The Read Aloud America RAP is once again seeking volunteers…

The Read Aloud America Read Aloud Program (RAP) is once again seeking volunteers to be volunteer readers as well as volunteers who can substitute as readers on short notice. This news is from Hawaii247.org!

Tonight, the first night as a RAP Volunteer…

Yes, tonight was the first of six nights as a Volunteer with the Read Aloud Program (RAP) by Read Aloud America (RAA) in Waikoloa. What a great way to spend an evening!

Our RAA Parent Trainer/Presenter at Waikoloa Elementary, Jed Gaines, expertly gave a short introduction for the program and explained that there is just one thing the students “had” to do tonight and that was “Have Fun”!

There were no tests, and they were not expected to write anything. They were to Have Fun! Mr. Gaines did ask fun questions and handed out fun prizes to get……
