Hi, Kiddies! Yesterday I received an email from a parent in Halifax, Nova Scotia, who writes: "Our baby can only get to sleep with a night light on. With all the recent power outages, she has gotten no sleep whatsoever. We tried a flashlight, but it was difficult to get the beam to cover a wide enough area, and the batteries tended to die too quickly anyway. What should we do?"
Sweetie, do as you do whenever there is a power outage. Light a candle. Then place it right next to the outlet, where the baby has come to expect the light to be. Candles are also a source of heat, so you might be able to save a little money by turning down the thermostat in your baby's room even when there's not a power outage, at least during these cold winter months.

Hi, Kiddies! It's been brought to my attention that today is World AIDS Day. So I thought it appropriate to revisit one of the early episodes of my wonderful program, in which I answered a letter from a fan on that very subject. Enjoy!

Help spread the word, Kiddies! When working for a suicide prevention hotline, just remind those prospective suicides that if they kill themselves, they'll miss the next Grandmother's Fanny Game blog update. That should do the trick.

Jane is thankful for Caller ID on her phone.
Edward is thankful for statutes of limitations.
Milton is thankful for strawberry ice cream.
Cindy is thankful for the light that sneaks in through the crack at the bottom of the door.
And I am thankful for all the people who have been spreading the word about Grandmother’s Fanny Game. Keep those letters and emails coming, Kiddies!

Kiddies, I have some wonderful news. Cindy is back! Thank you all for your help in the search. So many of you sent kind messages of hope. Many others hung posters in your neighborhoods and sent in photos. All of your efforts are very much appreciated.
