Snow-birds and Summer Ducks: 8 keys to Surviving an Arizona summer - 06/30/10 10:56 PM
Residents of Tucson, Arizona and vicinity are very familiar with the winter visitors who converge upon our state for a few months during the snowy months of the calendar. Visitors come from the Midwest, Back East, Alaska - you name it - in the name of escaping snow. We call these yearly "visitors" Snow-Birds. And then we have the Arizona residents - that "duck out" during the hottest months and head for the cool ocean shores, the majestic Rockies, and anyplace that doesn't average close to 100 degrees for the three middle months of the year. Summer Ducks.
Never assume it can't happen to you! This is an excellent post from Ralph Gorgoglione Copies of your credit cards, license, etc will save so much heartache, if done in advance. Likewise, it's wise to change your passwords on your social media sites as well! My husband JUST got his account hacked into by a spammer - hopefully, nothing more serious than a couple of sales pitches went out in his name. We immediately went on to change the privacy settings. I do an addition to #3., too. Your doctor, school reports, etc. always want you to "update" your information (0 comments)

"It's Not Easy Being Green" But Here's 8 Quick Tips!! Last Christmas everyone on my list got cloth shopping/grocery bags. I wrote a silly little rhyming poem to go with about going green. It was a really enjoyable project, actually. I made them out of material I’d saved since my children were small and lived endlessly in “jam pants” and lounging pajamas. It was always fun to pick out materials that matched their personalities, or events in their lives at the time, and I took the idea forward to 2010 with my GREEN bags.

Buying a New Home in Tucson? What’s your Out-of-Pocket Expense? - 06/28/10 10:51 AM
Buying a New Home in Tucson? What’s your Out-of-Pocket Expense? There are many upfront costs associated in buying a new home in Tucson, Marana, Oro Valley and Vail area of Arizona.

Have You Checked Your Links Lately? Today I Was Tweaking My Blog - 06/25/10 11:26 AM
This is too awesome! I had put little Facebook and Twitter "buttons" on the bottom of my AR profile when setting up, but completely missed this opportunity to add LINKS! Peggy outlines how to do this in her blog, along with great examples. I got a little confused on how to add links to My Outside Blog - but finally saw the menu bar along the top. Clicked LINKS and added away. A must read for anyone trying to enhance their blogs, their services, and their online presence. Thanks Peggy!

Tucson, AZ - CARING Hospital and Emergency Care - 06/22/10 12:18 AM
Tucson, AZ - CARING Hospital and Emergency Care My mother recently took two unexpected trips to the emergency room at St. Joseph's hospital here in Tucson, AZ. She had never been admitted in emergency care before and was a bit scared, bewildered, and worried, not to mention - in health crises. The local papers have, in the past, run feature stories on the poor health care and worse customer service one receives in Tucson medical care. Knowing that newspaper reporting can ometimes be flammatory, I felt "duty-bound" to share a bit of my mother's experience. For the sake of brevity, (3 comments)
I was reading a blog today that talked about RSS feeds and allowing readers to subscribe to blogs, websites, etc. I had a similar "moment" this week when I discovered something on my tool bar.

I hardly ever push all the buttons, except some bookmarks that I set up myself like Facebook, Twitter, and the Weather. I'd add more, but I've already forgotton how I got those on there!

I grew up in the Puget Sound, living with the rain that makes all things green for 18 years. Quick as a wink I moved to the Americanna rustic of rural Wisconsin after that, and raised three children.

Now I am proud, relieved, and feeling a bit like I'm on permanent vacation, living ten years this month in the gorgeous surroundings of Tucson, AZ. A picture's worth a thousand words, so here's some of why I love Tucson, AZ

I heard on TV that the National Weather service has released a statement saying that the moonsoon season begins June 15 for SE Arizona Desert dwellers.

In 2008, rain levels were 8.67" in Tucson, and SE Arizona - 13.30".
