I Am An Open Book….And So Are You!

It is funny how technology changes things.   Since we got our first Gateway computer back in the dark ages until now things have changed dramatically.  And I am not talking just in size or amount of electronic devices that are available.  I am talking about how much people can find out about you---without you even knowing it or realizing it.   Our youngest son has always cautioned me about divulging too much online or about being smart about things.  Well, I "think" that I am but I really am … [Read more...]

Putting Away My Crown

I almost had a brush with fame.  I came within 10 hours of it.  I must admit the past couple of days I was kind of giddy with excitement about my possible famous status.  But alas it was not to be. And what kept me from my date with fame, you may ask?  I blame Whitney Houston's death.   Which is a whole other sad post in itself that I won't write.  I had made a guess on a blog months ago.  You see, one of my blogger buddies, Mark aka The Idiot at The Idiot Speaketh was holding a contest of … [Read more...]

Imaginary Friends and Peanut Butter Oreos

I admit it.  I have them.  Or at least my husband says I have them.  Since I have started this blogging thing I have them.  When my hubby and I have conversations these days and I share with him a story or an email or something that one of my bloggy friends has shared with me he asks me "Is this one of your  real friends or an imaginary friend?"  The nerve!!!   But I know what he means. I have not actually "met" any of my bloggy friends.  But they are more real to me than the flesh and blood … [Read more...]

If It’s Tuesday It Must Be Teapot Day–#4

This is another favorite (aren't they all?) teapot of mine but not only is this cute ladybug themed teapot adorable it has a great memory with it.  It was given to me by a fabulous group of ladies from Epworth UMC  in Concord, NC.   I had the pleasure of working there for 5  years and had so many wonderful friends there.  Not only were they my friends then they continue to be come of my best friends even after I moved away thanks to Facebook and the wonderful capabilities of the internet!  This … [Read more...]

Are Blogs Dying? Please Say It Isn’t So!

I just read this article in The New York Times saying that blogs are on the way out. Well, that isn't exactly what it said--you can read the entire article if you click on the link at the bottom of the page.  What it did say was that the younger set of folks who had blogged are turning to Facebook and Twitter as a means of getting their thoughts out rather than the typical blog.  Well, yea, that does not surprise me at all.  As a matter of fact I myself post my blog to both and probably get the … [Read more...]
