Hello. My name is Lori and I am an Internet junkie.
And since being benched from my former position as a sports writer to my current position as receptionist/bank teller/crime reporter, I have lots of time to pursue my addiction.
And my daily web surfing usually produces quite a few interesting links that I like to share.
Among my recent addictions (besides Reese's Minis, that is) is blogs. Love reading them. Love searching for new ones. There is obviously something for everyone out there.
Like this one...where a mother has daily conversations with her young son, who committed suicide last year.
Check out this NOLA.com story on the River Parishes' own (and former Destrehan Wildat) Trey Watkins, now a starting outfielder for the LSU Tigers.
Another story with local links, this is the heartbreaking story of Tripp Roth, the son of former Destrehan QB Randy Roth and his wife Courtney, who is suffering with EB, a terrible and very painful skin disease. WWL-TV featured Courtney and Tripp on Tuesday night's newscast.
... And here is a link to Courtney's blog.
And it was a little old book blogger who led me to this link. It's called Libary Thing, and it's like your own virtual library. Check it out (ha).
