- I wanted to show off my top web pages on Squidoo. The site has over a million and a half web pages created by individuals called lensmasters. My top lens about chipmunks is ranked in the top 100 on the site. I’m guessing there are a lot of people out there plagued by chipmunks in the spring.

- Golf Cart Fun: Personalize It, Decorate It, Accessorize It

- Storytime Ideas: Themes for Librarians and Circle Time
- I started my career as a children’s librarian presenting eight storytimes a week. Knowing how hard it is to come up with fresh themes for storytime each week, I created this web site. Librarians, nursery school teachers and parents seem to really like it.
I’m having fun blogging about my retirement community in Florida. I try to alternate with profiles of Solivita residents and showcasing the wildlife and birdwatching in the community.
