Holly drove up from San Luis Obispo to attend an award luncheon put on by STAR (Bay Area Society for Television, Advertising and Radio). I am so happy I was able to attend with her. I had a great time and am so proud of Holly. 22 interns from companies like, CBS Radio, Clear Channel Radio, CMC Broadcasting, Comcast SportsNet, Comcast Spotlight, Cumulus Radio, Radio Disney, Entercom Radio, KGO TV, and NBC/KNTV were recognized. Holly worked at NBC/KNTV this past summer. Each received $500.00 and the chance for a scholarship. The luncheon was on a ship docked at Pier 3. It was a very positive great experience. Despite this "tough ecomony" there are volunteers out there putting together programs like this for young people just starting their careers. I feel hopeful.

Today mom and I worked on felt ornaments. I have been enjoying making these and learning how they go together. This design is one of my mom's interpretation of a character in a Beatrice Potter story. We spent three sessions working on him. His basket of cabbage could be an ornament all on it's own. I am not so happy with his face . . . his mouth is too big. I do love his bloomers.
