In the Sunshine State




My niece recently informed me that I need to update Jess' blog. She is probably correct since it has been months!

Jess went to Florida for a couple of weeks and spent some relaxing time reading her favorite stories.

Jess' Journeys

Jess has traveled from New Jersey to Florida and Belgium. She has just made it to Oregon. I should have some updates soon. My external hard drive isn't compatible with my new laptop. Arggg! I knew it was too much to expect everything to work simply.

Jess visits WGBH

FreakTM continues hosting Jess in MA. In this episode our girl, Jess, visits WGBH, a public broadcasting station. A favorite PBS show in my youth had been Sesame Street. Check out their podcast here. Yes, Sesame street is now podcasting! I must be old, though, because I have no idea who Murray is. Grover was always my fav. Sadly, my kids never got into Sesame Street, preferring Barney or, more recently, Fetch!. Check out the PBS website for fantastic tools for parents, games for kids, links for teachers, or to lend your support.

Enjoy the show!
