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!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.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!Monday: BadKitties
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.
Friday, and I'm standing in for FloridaSNMom, who wasn't able to make it down the stairs today (now yesterday) due to twitching excessively, as well as the fact that it was an ultimately bad pain day for most of the house thanks to all the rain (that we kinda sorta needed).
This is the first of a FIVE DAY run of 3am starts for me, which means I'm in bed by 730-8pm and ultimately up at 2am those days and FloridaSNDad doesn't usually go to bed until he gets a text message from me saying that I've made it to work on time - which nine times out of ten I usually forget to send until about an hour after I've gotten there...ooopsie.
Other than that, things have been relatively calm here which is good, and our garden is puttering right along - the beans have since grown TALLER than the stakes that we are using for them to grow up. We will have an abundance of beans - and I'm fairly certain that there will be pictures posted at some point relatively soon.
On that note, it is time for me to go crawl into bed, and I wish you all a happy Friday!
