Hi everyone,

I also want to let everyone know that we will need to change the time for our weekly roundtables.

We've got a new daily production meeting at 2:30 p.m. so We don't want to have a conflict.

 

We'll start doing it at 3 p.m. ET on Thursdays.

Had a video conference lined up for common ground that the person postponed twice. I am still hoping to get it if the project is still opened.

 

Also my sister is a doctor and dean at a medical teaching school and she has been passing me quite a bit of information that I may use in a subsequent piece.

@JoyfulGypsy -- We've got some new projects in the works, in fact we just launched a new one about people who are stuck in the past http://www.ireport.com/ir-topic-stories.jspa?topicId=335338

 

We've kept a lot of our assignments up because our producers are working on turning them into content.

 

We don't want to launch too many new things when we're not ready to work on them because they'll just get stale too.

@JoyfulGypsy We've had a lot of new assignments lately -- obesity, distracted drivers, not to mention all of the major natural disasters overseas! Keep in mind that we're a small team (especially this week -- a lot of people are out of town) and we can't work on too much at once!

I've seriously stepped up my physical training.  I'm training to climb Mount Kilimanjaro next year.  Lost 20 pounds in 6 weeks by simply carefully eating healthy, running, working out, etc.  I'm working on strength and endurance.  Maybe this grandma will even go for the NY marathon next year.  ;o)

@ChrisMorrow Your guilty pleasure videos have been great! It's a long-term project that CNN reporters are taking on too, and we're trying to figure out the best way to showcase them all. We've been brainstorming some ideas lately and will keep you posted.

@davidw A police car, a rescue rig and a fire truck. Local pd and Fire Dept were very keen on having spot like this on. And it's also my shortest iReport ever.
