your Odyssey Sea Glass News, Issue #017 -- See Glass? You Bet!
August 21, 2009
How's the weather in your neck of the woods? Or should I say in your neck of the beaches?
We have had some delightful weather here in the "usually green for a reason" Pacific Northwest. Yup, room temperature 70's. However, Lin has been "under the weather" and we haven't been to the beach for awhile. But here in the cedar and alder woods, we have had the windows open and get that fresh forest smell with the sound of wildlife floating in on the warm breeze.
Once again, we take the opportunity to welcome our visitors from exotic (to us in the USA) countries by saying hello to Germany (guten tag, hoi, griass di) and to Belgium (helaba) as well as our friends in Thailand (sawatdi). -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here is a little reminder to check out the upload features on "Your FUN Page", where you can contribute your photos on just about any subject, see what your friends are saying, and ask questions. It works so smooooooth.
If you have more than one photo you would like to share, feel free to send us an email by clicking on the pic of us above.
For this week, we would invite any of you to share a short story of your beach impressions (funny, sad, or exciting) and get a link to the website or blog of your choice.
LATE BREAKING: Be sure to check out the story just contributed and put up TONIGHT on a great little sea glass vacation. It should be the first on the list of links below! Just think, YOU could have a page like this on our site!!!??_____________________

Jul 6, 2009, Use The Search Box!
Can't find what you're looking for? With over 170 pages of photos and info, it is impossible to remember where you saw what on the Odyssey Sea Glass site!
Be SURE to make full use of the search box with the link below. BOOKMARK the search box page. It works GREAT and has gotten a lot better at finding specific words and phrases.
This is a probably (at least to me) the most important page on the site...but then again, my memory is shot ;-).
Anyway, I hope you find the search feature as helpful as I do!
