For me, I know school is almost out because my kids are finally getting up on time without a fuss. All these end-of-the-year party days sure make it easy:)

Thanks all for your input here. Great line, BerryLady: "The Wedding is easy. Getting Divorced is Easy. Keeping a marriage alive and healthy takes work from both parties." So true.

Thanks, Viewer, great suggestions! We will be promoting the best happenings that are free or nearly free in the bay area. We know everyone loves to find good deals, especially if they have kids in tow.

The photographer, Eric Zahn, has told me that he was just amazed that so many manatees had come up to shore. I imagine that everyone was just shocked to see all these manatees and did not know about proper protocol.

Terri -- You've got a good point on the term "oil spill." Sounds like Bounty could handle the job, huh? (Credit to Andy Borowitz for that.) I'll see what Craig Pittman and our print editors think about the terminology we're using.

Thanks to everyone who submitted their questions and comments here and during the live chat. I hope Craig Pittman was able to address all of your questions during the hour. **** Please let me know if you'd be interested in another live chat with Pittman as the oil spill news develops. I'd also love to hear whether there are any other Times or tampabay.com staff members you'd like to 'meet' in a live chat.
