Hi Donna ... if I were thinking about a fall/winter job I think I would concentrate on the various resort areas in Colorado and Utah. I would think they use a significant numbers of seasonal staff. I am sure the Coolworks staff can tell you exactly which employers to target to have the best chance of success.

Yep, I am going to hang in here in hot old Houston for the summer, and try to keep my chocolate products from melting! It will be a challenge I'm sure. I hope to go to New Zealand next Fall or Spring of 2011 to visit my son & his wife. They are having their first Baby this August (which will be our 3rd Grand child!). I just adore Grand babies!

hi donna sorry to hear, at least you got a taste.. what would have been your job, and what was your first impression of the dorm situation? sharing a room is a little iffy for me, but willing to try

Hey Donna. Just checking and see your response. Thanks. Can you make suggestions where to stay on PEI or NS? I want to find a little cottage/cabin but don't know any of the areas. My 86 year old aunt will be joining me when I leave next month and we will travel to the Atlantic provinces. Looking forward to it very much. Maine is beautiful, but the weather hasn't been very good until just recently. Acadia is nice, but will pick something else next year. How has your first week been at Tower? Keep in touch.

Hope you enjoy Tower and all its beauty and your dorm turns out better after it's been warmed by new friends.

Hello Donna. You'll love Tower - its pretty busy this time of year, but Sept. will be great. Try to get in a chuckwagon and/or horse ride at Roosie before it closes, and of course a meal at the lodge. Maine is beautiful, Bar Harbor too crowded this time of year, but then what tourist area isn't? It rains alot, and I do mean alot but they keep telling me this is unusual. I love the islands and boat rides I've been on. Am going to Nova Scotia and PEI when I leave here early Sept. to explore. Keep in touch - enjoy Yellowstone - it is a magical place. And after 30 years at GM you deserve it.

That IS a late start but August 3rd is almost here. I stop by Tower once in awhile. Hope to see you.
