Weekly Wrap Up (May 7 - May 13)



Hello all from the province that is on fire :o Thanks to all the people from all over the US of A, the rest of Canada, some Aussies and other foreigners for coming to help. Nice to know that everyone can come together and help out when things like this happen :yes: 

So, whatcha reading? :P I'm just leaving it at that. Or if you aren't reading what are you writing? :gikkle: Besides a response to me :unsure: 

Well since we are on the cusp of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere, curious if any summer plans are being made? Unfortunately with 35 years with my company, I won't get any this year. The first time in 35 years :( I'm not bitter though 0:) So enthrall me with what you all will be doing and I can be jelly. If you are going into Winter, any plans for that? With the heat we have been having, I'm wondering if I should move south :P 

Enough of my ramblings, lets get down to the brass tacks (I learned that one in the Word of the Day a while back ;) ).

On Monday, Cia... oh, Cia had a much deserved Monday off :hug: Instead the super Review Team put forth a great review by @chris191070:

  3. Luz de Castilla - Summer of '22 Book IX by Carlos Hazday **Complete** @pvtguy said, "Seeing and experiencing a visit to a Cuba that can only exist in the CJ-verse is a wonderful journey.  CJ and Oz let us vicariously see a wonderful visit where they get to meet wonderful people, eat great food, and discover a find that will help propel Cuba into a brighter future.  As part of the CJ series of the summer of 2022, this both fills in some blanks and sets up the promise of more to come.
