A Pink Victoria Secret Post

Dear blogger friends,

There have been many many attacks through blogger, Facebook, and Yahoo with the prescription scams. I have lost some followers due to this. If you receive email from my  email address with no subject please do not open them. I have removed people from my contacts and this as well as changing the passwords has resolved it. I really am sad to have lost followers because of this. Is nothing sacred any more?

Veterans Day was a very memorable day for me this year. I am working on a separate post from my students and a video one of them did. (Not a good idea to probably post it with all this VS pink wish list items! ROFL!)

I found an inexpensive version of a small 4 foot pink prelighted Christmas Tree at the Dollar General in the Cooperstown  areea and am buying it today! IS it too early to put the tree up? I can hardly wait to decorate this year in PINK of course!!!!

I will be running PINK HOLIDAY SPECIALS now through January 1st, 2011! Buy one PINK item and get the second of equal or lesser value free! SHOP HERE for PINK Glamour!

Now settle down with a warm cup of coffee and tea and see what is PINK for me!

 Thank you to our PINK SATURDAYS founder BEV at How Sweet The Sound be sure to visit her!

Be sure to blog over there today and see all the fabulous PINK Bloggers and what they have in store for you!

Also, have you signed up today or yet to send cookies overseas to the brave men and women serving out country?

This week my colllege students help to raise many $ to cover shipping costs, donated about 20 dozen cookies and we will be doing a can and cookie drive on campus for the holidays the week of 12/06/10.

Please email me here to find out you can join this charity event.

My sister Vanessa (Ken's mom) helped me at the EXPO as I have disabilities, and my other sister Debbie's son just returned home from a tour overseas in the ARMY.
