225806_4556584366771_868384020_nMaybe you were able to get pregnant very easily, but it hasn’t been that way for Debbie and ‘Santa’ Mark Reed. They have been trying for 5 years without success.   Fertility treatments are expensive.  They have a chance to win it free if they get enough votes on this video contest.  Will you please help?  They both would deeply appreciate it.

My great niece Katie VanderPloeg, who has 4 children of her own, wants her dear friend Deb to be a mother too.  This is what she wrote on Facebook:

I need your help! This is a link to vote for one of my oldest and best friends Debbie Hansen Reed who has struggled for years to try and start a family. If you know Deb you know that she was made to have a baby:) She is an amazing friend and I want this so badly for her and her husband Mark. She has entered a video contest about infertility and she NEEDS VOTES! The winner of this contest receives a free round of IVF, which would be such a blessing for them. The entries are in alphabetical order and listed as either primary or secondary, she is under PRIMARY. Thank you all for voting, I love you all.

You will be able to vote once : Primary.  Click on the “I Believe” Video Contest in blue above, go to the 13th video and view Debbie and Mark Reed’s video to see their story and how much they long to have a baby, or if you are in a hurry, just vote. Please.

Cool Site: So this century . . . jigsaw puzzles online!

Jigsaw Delight: 

 Do you like jigsaw puzzles? This one seems to be taking me forever, but I just work on it a little at a time.  You may already know that you can have the fun without losing a single piece.  Like everything else, or so it seems,  puzzles can be worked online.

I am still turning pages in real books and shuffling 1,000 puzzle pieces on a table, but no doubt I will one day have a Kindle and will be solving puzzles on a monitor instead of the table.  It might be easier on my neck, not so sure  what the other trade offs are.  

This is a site to give it a try if you are interested:

Choose from 6 pieces for a quick fix to 224 pieces for a super challenge. Choose which picture you’d like to work on from over 80 choices, no matter which difficulty level you choose!
