LOL....!! Thanks for the welcome, Janet....and yeah, I do LOVE spam....just not "internet " spam....! seems as I have eaten maybe a ton of it while pulling duty as in the Summer months, we didn't have much time to cook...! My Dept. was small and in a coastal area of N.C. We had 5,000 year-round population , but during the summer, it would swell to over 80,000. and with only running 3-4 person shifts, we had our hands FULL running both Fire AND EMS..! So, you ate what you could get your hands on....lol and spam was at the top of the list...lol
What up pretty lady? I haven't bugged you in a while so I thought I would fly by and nick your neck! (a little vampire humor). The Chief told me about the new direction in the marketing of your book and I think that's excellent. She's lighting a fire under my you know what to get to marketing it, so I will be doing just that (she's a whip cracker and damn good at it too .. haha)
Anyways, I like the idea and I will get right on trying to get some sales for Sept. Preparedness month.
Hey gurl! I saw you comment on Cappy's page (spank, spank) you are doing an EXCELLENT job! Please don't think for one moment that you're not. If not for you, I really don't think I could handle it all. You are totally my right hand in the ongoing and uprising success of this website site and I will beat you in the head if you think any different!
Thank you for your birthday wishes. I had a wonderful, stress free, peaceful weekend. I felt strength that wasn't mine, a power greater than the sum of 1 person. So, I thank everybody for their thoughts and prayers and want to let you know, they reached me and they work fulfilled.
Hello Janet. Thank you for your welcome. I love Tuscon. I've been there and to Sierra Vista many times. I am pleased and honored to become a part of this great group.
My personal technical expertise (and hopefully how I can contribute information and help to this group) is in emergency lighting for First Responders (including Mine Rescue Teams as well). I am trying to capture and summaraize the various lighting issues First Responders face when we enter, and are in, an incident. Any suggestions on how to approach? My best, Peter
