April Update

April has been good so far. I survived another Birthday! Yeah (That's always good) I made it through another round of doctor's letters, SW visits, homestudy update, fingerprints, more shots (Hep B) and USCIS forms. Geez, I need a break. Let's just hope this is the last of the paperwork til China. :)
It's also springtime and that means yardsales. Check out some of my finds in Giorgi's Enchanted Garden. It definately satisfies that shopping urge without spending a lot of money.
Somethings you just don't buy at a yardsale. For instance, our gifts that we need to bring to China. Finally, I posted a photo of the gifts I got for the SWI's. Fragrances made in the USA. I have some fragrances for men to. Still need some other things. Working on it. For anyone that is looking for ideas I posted twice on this very topic. Part I and Part II. Check them out! Here is our Precious Panda January 2006 DTC group pin. I love it. They are bigger than I thought ... but that makes them better. Very cool. Get the pins here. :)
Well, I guess that's all that's new with me. Now, back to ....

Massacre at Virginia Tech: 32 Confirmed Dead
Apr. 16, 2007— At least 32 people are dead in what may be the biggest mass killing on a college campus in American history — and the death toll may rise.
What is WRONG with some people. Please tell me how one person's life must suck enough for them to do this!
again...ARE YOU %$#& KIDDING ME!!!!

Those poor kids, Those poor parents, The poor school!!
Are you kidding me!

"(CBS/AP) A gunman opened fire in a dorm and classroom at Virginia Tech on Monday, killing 31 people in the deadliest shooting in U.S. history, government officials told The Associated Press. At least 20 others were injured in the shootings, police said. The FBI and the ATF believe the gunman, described as a young Asian male, used two handguns in the shootings before taking his own life, sources tell CBS News. One official added that the gunman was "heavily armed and wearing a vest." Investigators are trying to confirm if the gunman was looking for his girlfriend, CBS News reports."

The university reported shootings at opposite sides of the 2,600-acre campus, beginning at about 7:15 a.m. EST at West Ambler Johnston, a co-ed residence hall that houses 895 people, and continuing about two hours later at Norris Hall, an engineering building. Officials are confident there was one gunman and that the shootings were not part of a larger plot, CBS News reports. FBI spokesman Richard Kolko in Washington said there was no immediate evidence to suggest it was a terrorist attack, "but all avenues will be explored."

Postcards Made from Panda Poop

"Are you looking for a unique and environmentally-friendly postcard to send to your loved ones? China (where else?) has a solution for you: panda poop. That's right, poop from a panda bear. Compressed. Into a postcard. Faced with an ungodly amount of feces from the lovable creatures, researchers found that it could be recycled into paper, packaged and sold to tourists. And what better way to quite literally send crap back to your family while on a trip than a postcard made from poop?What a (um) silly idea. "
