  1. Anyone else having trouble getting to Barts blog? It keeps coming up as an error and I tried going through google to get to him as well and it still wont load. I am having no problems with any other links or websites.

  2. Sheila: Yeah, I had trouble for a few. It does that when too many people are getting on. Just keep updating it every few minutes. I think theres only so much bandwidth probably.

  3. I am so excited, I am a cheerleader and I did all of the readers on the list for hours 1-6 for my team. YEAH!!! It only took 2 hours!!! Since I signed up for 4 hours of cheerleading, I think I will go do my housework now, and do my other two hours when everyone is falling asleep and I am wide awake. I am a night owl.
