    Mid-week Memes

    It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for me to visit Joyce and Patrice to participate in their little mid-week Q&A session. Perhaps, you’ll wanna tag along, too. First, let head to Joyce’s place. You can find her questions here to grab & answer, then link your Wednesday Hodgepodge URL at From This Side of the Pond. Now, here is my response to this week’s 8 questions… 1. Aloha! On August 21, 1959 Hawaii officially became a US state. Have you ever been? Upon arrival would you prefer an orchid or a hibiscus to tuck behind your ear? Naturally, a hibiscus!     2. Since we’re talking tropical…what’s your favorite food…

    Blog Button Question

    Last Friday, I launched my Friday Sillies with its own button. I finally got this working. Hooray for me, right? The next thing I got to wondering about is, how do you make the button always go to the meme, instead of the home page? Do I have to set my memes as a page in order for this to work out? Mucho thanks!!

Got any suggestions? While that’s bouncing off the walls of your brain, lets go wayback, wayback to 1982… May 1st marked the 30th anniversary of the World’s Fair Expo. Host city: Knoxville, Tennessee right in my back yard. What a time that was!

    DWTS Season 13 & Chats On A Farmhouse Porch

    Monday night, Season 13 of Dancing with the Stars premiered. Unfortunately, we missed it. We did tune in for the results. The twelve stars are: Carson Kressley Chaz Chasity Bono Chynna Phillips David Arquette Elisabetta Canalis Hope Solo J.R. Martinez Kristin Cavallari Nancy Grace Ricki Lake Rob Kardashian Ron Artest This year’s cast doesn’t excite me, to say the least.  At a glance, I like Chynna.  She moves gracefully and shows promise of blooming into a lovely dancer. Watch her first performance, here.  J.R.’s likable nature and service to this country in the Iraq war made him an immediate contender for the Mirror Ball Room trophy, in my opinion. Here, he is…

    1000 Reasons to be Thankful #1-10

    I found a lovely blog geared for those who are thankful for God’s blessings.  What a marvelous, encouraging outlet to stream positive energies across the world-wide net to other sisters in Christ! My desire is to once a week devote a single post to share my thanksgivings.  Today, I begin. I am Thankful for… the annoying sound of the alarm clock which greeted me this morning. the ability to rise out of bed completely and fully healthy. a wonderful husband to wake up and to help get send off to work each day. my husband’s profession which has allowed me to be a SAHM for 23 years. the Lord for giving…
