I was saddened to read of the death of Steve Irwin (The Crocodile Hunter) while he was filming off Batt Reef in Queensland, Australia.  I'll admit he did some reckless and  crazy things but I can't help feel sympathy for his wife Terri and the young children who will now grow up without their dad.  The report states; "He came on top of the stingray and the stingray's barb went up and into his chest and put a hole into his heart,"  Again my sincere sympathy to his family and friends for  this tragic loss.

It seems a lot of people were having "ALERT" problems over the weekend.  I did two entries Sunday and wondered if there were any alerts for them, but I think maybe they went out a little delayed.  Anyway, hopefully everything is back to normal now.  

I have to finish my ironing today, as tomorrw it's back to work.  The first day back since returning from my cruise.  The bronchitis and ear infection I came home with, has continued to keep me home because my hearing has been so poor do to the ear infection.  Hopefully by tomorrow it will be greatly improved, as I work in a call center and take phone calls all day.......I need to be able to hear clearly.

It's supposed to be another hot, dry day here in western Washington but I have lots of fans to keep me cool while I iron away. 

Have a wonderful Monday, and until next time......................Linda

I got this alert o.k. but others are very hit and miss.  Yes, sad about Steve Irwin but I always had the feeling it was bound to happen and I said so to Mike two years ago.  He took so many chances but he died doing what he loved.

Hi, Linda....  I enjoyed catching up on a week worth of entries.  You've been a busy writer!  I sure hope you are feeling much better when you get up for work in the morning.  You've been through enough!  I appreciate your comments in my journal today and the info on the 2007 cruise.  If we go on another cruise it won't be for another 4 years or so. We'd like to go to Norway, Finland and Russia (among other stops).  Our next trip is to Italy in the spring of '08.  We're saving for that right now.

Yes, it has been very sad about Steve and his family.  I hope your illness passes.  It took my ear about a month to recover my hearing after my last infection. take care, tina
