     Tsunami Disaster Updates

Monday morning President Bush announced that former Presidents Bush and Clinton will head a nationwide charitable effort to help those affected by this disaster. In the coming days both will be asking the American people to donate what they can to those charities helping with the effort. For more information on donating visit the USA Freedom Corps Web site at

These charities are helping to get food, water and other assistance to the tsunami victims. Americans know from our own catastrophes, such as the Florida hurricanes this past fall, the important role charities play in the rebuilding effort and that any and all help is appreciated. Please visit to see what you can do to help the tsunami victims


Some other reputable organizations where you might want to make a donation include the following:

I have made my donation to the Salvation Army Others that are nightly recommended are AmeriCares at and The American Red Cross (not international Red Cross!) . Neal Boortz and many others strongly recommend that we do NOT send anything which goes through the United Nations -- for obvious reasons.

There is very coverage of Asian Tsunami Disaster on line at Yahoo News at . This includes a Slideshow of photos. May God be with all of those suffering in that part of the world.


News from the Girls 

4We were so glad to have Beverly Sisk Ward as a first time Golden Girl at the December luncheon. She taught for many years at Johnson High and is now teaching part time at Gwinnett Tech with Betty Billard and Avonel Horne. She told us that she is a former patient of the more famous dentist Barton Corbin.


 4We were very sad to learn that Avonel Horne has been diagnosed with breast cancer and will have the breast removed next week at Eastside Hospital in Snellville -- according to a message from Kay Fulmer. Kay plans to cook up some food and freeze it in small servings so that she can just microwave it when she is hungry. It is not likely that she will feel like going out to eat for quite some time. Maybe others would like to do something like that. This is a strong reminder of the importance for all of us to get a mammogram every year at our age. Let us all keep Avonel in our thoughts and prayers


4We have been missing Margaret Floyd of Snellville for quite some time at our luncheons. Tonight I talked to her husband who says that Margaret is back at her Mother's place in South Carolina taking care of her Mom who is 95 and still lives in her home. She is able to get around a little but needs someone there with her. She does not want to move away from her home. Margaret and her sister take turns staying with their mother. Let's remember Margaret in our prayers, also.


4Nell Foster is just back today (Wednesday) from her holiday trip to visit family in North Carolina and Virginia. She went to Virginia until Santa made his visit and then the entire family went to the Outer Banks to see daughter Claudia and her family where they stayed several days. Next she went to Durham to see her special cousin who is very sick. It is so sad since he has only two to three months left. They had snow and ice and had to wait a day to go to Claudia's and her flight was delayed six hours because a jet slid off the runway in Richmond, and they could not land there. They had to go to Norfolk, and they were sending them back to Richmond on a bus. However son Chad drove up to get them. Nell says that it was a Christmas that she will never forget. She says that she feels like the road runner and is very tired tonight.
