Hello All,

It has been a week of stress. My laptop decided to update me out of ALL my sites, and lock me out somehow. I hate HP laptops. Been all week until now to get back in. Verifying my passwords over and over, and who I am. Unreal to say the least. My phone I don’t use for email, etc. So I’m back here for now. At least the sun is shining, and I am counting days down till spring. Better days ahead.


Our condolences to my cousin Debbie Ingraham and family on the loss of her daughter Kayla Ingraham on Feb. 5. She had breast cancer, and passed at age 34. Thinking of all.

Happy birthday wishes

On Feb. 19, Lin Jr.! On Feb.16, Karen! Sara on Feb. 20! Ava Jean on Feb. 21! Ashley on Feb. 23! May you all have a great day!

Unity Pond Ice Oval Races
Races were canceled for the 12th but got a good crowd on Sunday, the 13th. Mother Nature warmed up the track and it had water and slush on it but it froze up for Sunday. Happy racing! Food trucks available there. Spectators or whoever, wear your ice cleats for these races!

Amish Community Market

The Unity building is coming along very well. All the walls up, and roof is on, wrapped and metal on roof last I heard. That’s nice to hear. If you have computer, pictures on Facebook of the site.

Coming up

Ice Carving Championships in downtown Belfast the weekend of Feb. 26-28.

Gymnastics kid

Mylee Grant is at GAGE Center Great American Gymnastic Express in Blue Springs, Missouri. She is shining bright and I hope she does well. She just turned 14 years old as well.  Way to go!!

Scammer phone calls

Beware as they call all the time trying to scam you out of your money. Don’t be fooled, if you get these calls. You get nothing in return, just loss of your money to some faraway stranger most likely. I get so many calls it is terrible. Be aware.

Until next week,

Hoping I get my laptop fixed up the way I want it, not Microsoft. Be safe. Be warm. And be KIND!!
