Just learned more today about Google’s Buzz. If you have a gmail account (and I do), using Buzz will be simple.

Buzz is built right into Gmail, so there’s nothing to set up — you’re automatically following the people you email and chat with the most.

I like the idea of having everything on one page as I already use Google’s Reader to follow my favorite blogs, a couple of tech sites and even local news headline updates. Time will tell if I learn to love it and use it.

Aarrgghhh!

Why, oh why do I get involved in these reality shows? I’m just a junkie, I guess… can’t quit them! “The Bachelor” is driving me nuts this time though. Jake is either really sincere and the nicest human being on earth or he is an excellent actor! Somebody find me a 12-step program to quit these shows… I’m beggin’ ya!

Happy New Year? I know…

… I’m a month or so behind again. I have thought long and hard about closing this blog and my site down. I’ve given it a lot of thought actually and I just can’t bring myself to lose all the years and time I’ve spent creating and rambling about. So, I’ve spent a little time last night and today changing the blog’s look and a little of the web site. The old content is still in place and I’m going to make an effort to create again whether with new graphics, sharing photos or just a bit of silliness again.

To start off on a good note and hopefully a continued trend, here’s a thought for tonight…. “who dat”? The Saints might just win this thing!!

Christmas Spirit

I have the Christmas spirit, oh yes I do! I really thought Ed was crazy when he wanted to get all the lights and decorations out the day after Thanksgiving. We’ve never decorated that many days before the arrival of December! I’m thankful he wanted to do it though and most especially since the cold weather arrived this week. It’s beginning to look (and feel) a lot like Christmas!


New Photos and a bit of the Random Stuff

Well, most of my camera time these days has been looking through the viewfinder at a couple of adorable babies. Since they are not mine, I don’t share them here unless it is a password protected post. That’s no fun at all, so I do have a few new pictures I’ve posted to my photoblog. Let me clarify that, I have one tonight and more will automatically upload over the next few days.

Are you loving this weather? Oh my goodness! It was just perfect today for the Davy Crockett Days in H. G.! Lots of crafts, jewelry, antique cars and tractors, food and fun for the kids. I’m glad I went!

Vivid Memories

Eight years ago many families lives were forever changed by the events of 9/11/01. I’ll never forget Ed telling me to turn on the news and how we were glued to the television for hours upon hours hoping what we were seeing was a horrible mistake. In fact, as we all came to realize, it was a horrible truth. Our country had been attacked by extremists and they celebrated…. CELEBRATED… our losses. Let us never forget those precious lives lost and how that unspeakable act has forever changed how we felt then and now as a nation.

I had not created anything new since May. My creativity went by the wayside for weeks and I have to say I am very happy to have found it again. As usual, these images were inspired by the graphic group I’ve been playing with off and on for many years now.

Egg and Stand Candle

This Just Makes Me Smile

The audition for the show “X Factor” in Britain by Danyl Johnson is infectious! He is a teacher, loves music and was encouraged to audition for the show by his students. Joe Cocker’s “With a Little Help from my Friends” has long been a favorite of mine and Danyl’s joy in singing the song simply makes me smile… again and again and again!

Embedding the video has been disabled, so you will have to click either of the links I’ve included to watch the videos on You Tube’s site. This first link has the young man’s story and performance. The second link is a better video of the song and judge’s reactions only.

I’m thinking his music career has just begun whether he wins “X Factor” or not. That show is equivalent to “American Idol” here in the States and you all know what an Idol junkie I am!

I had a good day with the little ones. I was happy to see Baby Girl and I do believe she was glad to see me too. Baby Boy was a little cranky today, but after all it was the first day without his Mom. He just needs to get used to me and me to him. I actually made it better than I thought I would, so I think this venture will be a lot of fun and I know it is good for my spirits.

Another new picture on the photoblog! Check it out!
