I had to come and share some rather sad news with you today. Today at work my coworkers and I received some rather sad news which I wanted to share with you. My coworker that we had the party for Willie Hines died last night at Southern Regional Hospital.
I am rather sad at the moment after having heard the news. My coworker's and I had known Willie for quite a while which makes it hard to know that he is gone. I am glad that we had the party for him and that he was able to come and see us. I am sure that after the family makes the arrangements I will go and attend his funeral. I know that he is no longer in pain but its shocking to know that just after we had a party in his honor that he passed away last night.
I am sure his family and friends are as upset about the news as my coworker's and I are. I do hope that everyone he loves knows that we will always love and miss him. I always thought that he was such a great guy and I hope that his family will know that we will all miss him a lot. Its still hard to know that he is gone and that we will never see him again. I hate to have lost a coworker but he was in pain and I know that he will miss us I'm sure. I am glad that I was able to know him and work with him but work will surely be different without him around.
Anywho...I had to come and share the news with you. I'm sorry for such sad news but I thought you would like to know.
Take care everyone

How are you today ? I hope you are all well. I wasn't going to get into anything of a political nature today but I just have to in this update.
Today I recorded "The View" and Mr. Bill O'Reilly was a guest on the show and I have to say that I was a little upset about his behavior on the show. First of all I have to say that I felt that Bill O'Reilly acted rude on the show and I wish that he would have NOT been on the show. I feel that he has a right to his opinion on Barack Obama and McCain but I feel that he was quite wrong in calling Barack Obama a Communist and then a Socialist. I feel that he was wrong in expressing his opinion the way he did. I also feel that Elizabeth Hasselbeck has been a little wrong in expressing her opinions as she does. I did NOT like the fact that he was rude to Joy and to Barbara Walters on The View. I hope that he does NOT go on The View anytime soon. I wish that they would have Elizabeth taken off The View pretty soon and hopefully a replacement is found.
Please forgive me for this entry but I was mad at what I saw on the show.
Anywho......how was your day today ??? I do hope that you are having a pleasant week. I just had to come and vent for a minute. I will try to be better soon. Do take care everyone.

Good evening. I wanted to come by and tell you about my day. All this week my coworker's and I were asking everyone in the building if they wanted to sign a card we had gotten for our coworker whose name is Willie. The reason why we did this is that a lot of people had known him and gotten to like him and so they also gave us donations towards a party we hosted in his honor today since he is having to retire early due to an illness. A lot of the donations were given to our coworker in case he might need to use some of it for money or whatever else he might be needing at this time.
The party started at 1:00 this afternoon at our work and it ended at 3:00 this afternoon. My coworker's and I had prepared a buffet style party which consisted of chicken from Kentucky Fried Chicken, buffalo wings from a place called "Buffalo Cafe" and we also had some green beans which two of my female coworker's prepared at home, I myself made some potato salad which everyone liked quite a lot. We also had some dinner rolls and bottles of Coca-Cola, diet Coca-Cola, and some Sprite. A lot of people attended the party where our coworker Willie was there. After the meal my coworker's and I and our supervisor presented him with his plaque for this service of 30 years, his card and some money that was donated to him from the people in the building. The sad part was is that he was not well since he is suffering from having cancer on his liver. He did appreciate our having given him the party and the gifts we gave him. My coworker's and I will definitely miss him very much. His sister who brought him up to our work was very grateful for what we did for him.
Let me tell you it was quite a turn out at the party and the people really enjoyed the party and our hard work with the food and how the party turned out. It was sad that we had to say goodbye to our coworker but I do hope that he is able to recover at home with his family and relatives. I was glad that he was able to make it to the party and I am glad that we got to have a little celebration in his honor.
Anywho......how was your day ??? I do hope that you are doing well. I just wanted to come by and share my day with you. Tomorrow of course starts the weekend so I will talk to you again later.
Have a great weekend and take care

Good evening. I thought I would come by and let you know that I am still here. It is almost Halloween. I did finish reading "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" it was a very good book.
I have since started reading "Devil Bones" which is inspired from my favorite show "BONES" as you might already know. I also picked up another book today called "Deadly Night" by the writer Heather Graham. I am getting into the mood for a little scary reading since its getting closer to Halloween. Does anyone else like Halloween like I do ??
I do hope that everyone is well. I want to thank everyone for coming to visit me here even though I do miss AOL Journal Land. Anywho thank you all for dropping in. I will talk to you all again soon.

I'm here for the time being. I don't know why but some of my entries did not transfer well. I'm hoping this works. I hate that AOL J-Land had to close everything worked there and this seemed rather hard.
I do have news. It has been a long week at work but I made it to Friday. You might want to know that I did get the book "DEVIL BONES" which is inspired by my favorite show "BONES". I'll have to finish reading "Helen Hath No Fury" pretty soon.
I also got some other books including "No Rest For The Witches" by MaryJanice Davidson and "Water Witch" by Deborah Leblanc and "C.J.'s Fate" by Kay Hooper and "The Lucky One" by Nicholas Sparks.
On my lunch break with two of my coworker's I went to a little thrift store and I saw a book called "The Book Borrower" by the writer Alice Mattison for $2.50 and a nice pair of khaki colored tennis shoes that were on sale for $8.80 and they looked like they had never been worn.
After work I rode home with one of my coworker's and I ended up getting some groceries which included another book called "The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. I have to say that I don't know when I will get around to reading all of the books that I have.
Anywho....that's all for now. Have a good weekend !!!!!!!!!

Hello dear world
How are you all ??? I am extremely saddened by the news that AOL J-Land is closing its doors at the end of the month. I don't know if I want to continue blogging anywhere else. I have always liked it here at AOL J-Land I can't believe this is happening.
I might NOT be sharing anymore entries here because what would be the point ?? AOL J-Land will soon be gone. I have come to make friends and gotten to know a lot of you. This is an extremely sad time and I just think that this might be the last entry I put here.
Anywho...I hope you are all well.
