As you can see by Itzl's concerned look, this group is for us to check in at to let people know we are alive, doing OK, and not affected by such things as heat, blizzards, floods, wild fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, power outages, or other such things that could keep us off DKos. It's also so we can find other Kossacks nearby for in-person checks when other methods of communication fail - a buddy system. Members come here to check in. If you're not here, or anywhere else on DKos, and there are adverse conditions in your area (floods, heatwaves, hurricanes, etc.), we and your buddy are going to check up on you. If you are going to be away from your computer for a day or a week, let us know here. We care!We have split up the publishing duties, but we welcome everyone in IAN to do daily diaries for the group! Every member is an editor, so anyone can take a turn when they have something to say, photos and music to share, a cause to promote or news!
Ok, we have a current diary schedule. If you would like to fill in, either post in thread or send FloridaSNMom a Kosmail with the date. If you need someone to fill in, ditto. FSNMom is here on and off through the day usually from around 9:30 or 10 am eastern to around 11 pm eastern.
If you'd like to be part of the Itzl Alert Network, please leave a comment asking to join, or send us a message asking to join. We'd love to have you. The bigger our network, the less likely someone will be stranded all alone.
Throughout history, all over the world, highly creative people have come up with inventive solutions to vexing problems...
Tired of limp, boring, straight hair? No worries!! The Permanent Wave Machine gave ladies lovely curls!
My paternal grandmother had one of these =) It was in the garage. My brothers and I LOVED it. We would get on it, put the belt around our waists or chests, (we weren't tall enough for it to go around our hips) and shimmy =) It didn't actually WORK, according to my father, who would stifle laughter as my grandmother doggedly climbed on it daily. She refused to consider his suggestion that cutting down on butter and eliminating desserts might actually reduce her hips.
Got the sniffles? Bad allergy season? This will help! I'm thinking of FloridaSNMOM right now =)
