Polar Express

I'm curious to know your answers to some of the questions, but first a little bit of background. 


I found the book, The Polar Express the other day,  by Chris Van Allsburg. Just looking at the book brought back all kinds of memories, and many questions. 

I remember working in a book store when I got the original book.  I was able to
take home the display stand that had a moving train with lights and bring it to school for my son’s Kindergarten class.  It’s just such a feel good story and one that is
especially endearing to read to your child or a group of children.  That same year we were able to visit the author at a book signing in Rhode Island.  It was a precious day
to meet and take photos with the kids and the author, as well as have the book signed.  He was charming as I remember.  As with many movies,...  Read More

How to post an Addoway Blog

Summertime and the living is easy, well not so much when it is 103 degrees.
But, there are those summer days when life is relaxed and peaceful. When you want to stay inside, keep cool, perhaps do some reading.  Great reads on the addoblogs.  Get to know new friends and sellers, or keep in touch with the current friends.

The S Word with a Triple HHH AddoBlog

The  S Word with a Triple HHH.

It's Summer and it's Hazy, Hot and Humid.  We're in a heat wave!
I am thinking of nothing but cool water, ocean breezes and well maybe a cold Corona! 

While it's miserable outside, I had a nice air conditioned office which is actually really cold, too much so, sometimes.  But, now that I'm home with no AC, what to do.  It's going to be slow and steady for me tonight.  Well, you know what they say about that!  So, I'm putting in this picture of the snow we had last winter (another S word), to remind me what the weather will be like in a few short months from now.  I will enjoy the heat wave.

Some other letter S words that are kind of fun for summer.

I love the word serendipity.  It’s a pleasure to say verbally and not used often.  I love it when something serendipitously...  Read More
