One of my friends here at work, Jenny, has been trying to adopt a little girl, Hope, from Haiti.
To say it has been a struggle is an understatement. The paperwork is ridiculous. She paid to document the parents with birth certificates etc. then the paternity tests come back negative(most likely bad test facilities). She has flown down several times and told each time that Hope might be able to come home with her "this" time.
Now the quake has devastated Port-Au-Prince, where Hope was living, and no word has come out.
I'm praying for both of them, I hope you will too and that we all get good news soon.

At UF today, researchers developed a way to grow frozen orange juice directly on the trees! This is projected to save millions by taking out the need to freeze the orange juice at the plants. It has also been proposed that the frozen oranges can be use to refrigerate other crops during transport.
On the down side, removing the pulp will be much more difficult.
P.S. I hope we get rain soon, otherwise the fuel from the frozen dead vegetation will make the fire season a bear!
