          No excuses this summer!  I am going to conquer the 30 day and get those 10,000 views.  I'm almost to 100 followers so I guess that should be my next goal!!!

      I’ve given up on hub goals for a while. Perhaps it’s the Google hangover, I am pre-occupied with other aspirations, however this morning I’m on a hubbing spree so I’m off to read a few of yours.  So maybe I'll help out

    Finally had a "full night" of Television shows!
    With all the bad weather the past week and a half...the prime time schedule has either been randomly interrupted or totally blocked out due to the necessity of tornado warnings.
    Only flooding today, which is bad, but I got to watch my TV shows I like tonight...for a change.

        I am in a pretty safe place. The area I am in is a higher ground and has fast run-off. Governor is now asking for a Federal Disaster for 57 counties. Tornadoes and flooding, but we were not hit as bad as Alabama though.

                  The last 2 hubs I wrote were more fun since I was only thinking about the writing instead of "would they make any money." It really is easier writing when it is fun to do.

                    I agree, Michael.  It's way more like work when you're writing just because you have to about something that doesn't interest you in the least.  I prefer to write about things like insanity...something I'm more familiar with!

          His first email said I'd make a good fiction writer, and a few other not so nice things that I'd don't really want to repeat here (hey this is hidden from the search engines, yeah?). I emailed him back and asked what he wanted changed...then a little while later emailed him again to say his problem was solved because I'd unpublished.
          Next day I got a really nice email from him saying thanks for resolving matters so quickly (by unpublishing) and adding that he had not intended me to do that, he had just wanted about 20% of the hub changed and that I had actually written a strong profile of him.
          So I emailed him again to ask if he wants it republished, and if so to email me the changes he wants me to make.
          Still waiting on a reply. I'm not writing about any more of them. I don't know what I thinking writing them in the first place. I should have waited till they were dead...
