    Welcome home! I feel home too, granted I live in an apartment. Hope to move into a home soon and then I will get the full feel.

    PatientEarth,

    Good question. I just had to comment to clarify that the floors shown were how they were left late Tuesday afternoon. Residents tried packing what they could before being forced to leave the facility.

    This could have been clarified in the video somehow.

    Thanks for your input.

    - J.R.

    What about a cruise? That sounds so typical. I like your idea to skydive! I've been wanting to do that. One day.

    Good job, Becky. I think the key to any emergency would be to remain calm and keep the driver and passengers involved calm.

    I've never seen an accident happen, but this one time on the highway back home, I did see this car farther ahead of me go over the hill and by the time I went over the hill myself, the car had flipped over and was blocking the exit. Other people had already stopped to help but I still had to slow down. I remember not having air conditioning at the time and having the windows rolled down. I could hear the people screaming. It's horrible to witness anything like that.

    It's definitely a wake up call.

    Sugarmagnolia - That would be an interesting question to pose. It could have definitely added to this article. I'll be sure to find out what that reason was. I may work on a follow up story soon. Thanks for your input.

    exresident - Sorry about that. It reads fine in my mind and I didn't mean for it to come across like that in my own blog.

    I just want readers to keep in mind that while this is a blog about my experiences, I do try and keep it grammatically correct. On occasion, I do have slip ups.

    Thank you for pointing that out though. I completely agree that the sentence doesn't agree.

    PatientEarth - I've seen several of my Question of the Day interviewees having that oatmeal. I still have a chance to try it. I've only had lunch there.

    The addition I was referring to, PatientEarth, was the petting zoo and pony rides.

    The AIDS piece would be completely educational and telling this story through a family's eyes or through someone who is living with the disease, would help tell this story.
