I'm having the dickens of a problem with my computer and my pictures. Hubby changed the anti- virus protectors and since then I have been having some huge problems. Today is the worst. This has taken me over a hour to do - so sorry there are not more pink pictures.
I'm thinking pigs - pigs are pink. And the reason I'm thinking pigs is that next weekend we're going to Cincinnati to visit my son for his 35th (can't believe it) - birthday and the baby shower is Saturday!
And how do pigs and Cincinnati relate - well in Cincinnati - PIGS CAN FLY!
Be sure and go check Beverly's at How Sound the Sound .
Happy Birthday to Danielle Steele - Wikipedia
Her parents were John Schulein Steel, a descendant of the founders of Löwenbräu beer, and Norma da Câmara Stone Reis, the daughter of a Portuguese diplomat. Steel spent much of her early childhood in France, where from an early age she was included in her parents' dinner parties, giving her an opportunity to observe the habits and lives of the wealthy and famous. Her parents divorced when she was seven, however, and she was raised primarily in New York City by her father, rarely seeing her mother, who had moved to Europe.
Steel started writing stories as a child, and by her late teens had begun writing poetry. A graduate of the Lycée Français de New York, class of 1965, she studied literature design and fashion design, first at Parsons School of Design in 1963 and then at New York University from 1963–1967.
In 1965, when she was only 18, Steel married banker Claude-Eric Lazard. While a young wife, and still attending New York University, Steel began writing, completing her first manuscript the following year, when she was nineteen. After the birth of their daughter, Beatrix, in 1968, Steel became a copywriter for an advertising agency, then worked for a public relations agency in San Francisco. A client was highly impressed with her press releases and encouraged her to concentrate on writing books.
Interesting that writers are influenced by their early lives.
