My Tribute to Active Rain - 03/26/09 07:58 AM
When I first became involved in Active Rain my motives were simple. I wanted to learn what social networking is and improve my computer skills. I have achieved those goals and continue to learn every day. Now Active Rain has become so much more than that. What a new world it is! Who could have dreamed that I would have a group of friends that I've never met (for the most part) who I know I can count on whenever I call on them? Who would have dreamed that I would start and end each day in the rain? How could (4 comments)

Fifty Thousand POINTS! - 03/24/09 09:34 AM
I have been procrastinating. That's not like me but I think I'm experiencing a little "fear of success." I'm still a rookie in Active Rain. I'm new. I'm so technologically impaired. I like having all those excuses and yet...
When I hit the POST button and send this blog in...I'll go past the 50,000 mark. How did I get here? Now what?

A strange thing happened on the way... - 03/14/09 08:47 PM
OK, I admit, I'm a little addicted to watching my points go up. I love being near the top in my area. OK, I admit too that I want to be number 1! Is that sick? But I made a commitment that I wouldn't write junk and that I wouldn't make stupid comments just for points. But I just realized that while I'm looking for comment worthy blogs, I'm learning and getting motivated and being inspired and entertained. When I open a blog and it starts to bore me I move on and often I read a blog and don't think (14 comments)
He was 18 pounds of pure heart. His name was Casey and he was the best dog I ever had. My husband bought him for me when he was 8 weeks old and weighed a whopping 3 pounds. In no time at all it was clear that I was his favorite human, although Corey, our big old yellow mutt, was definitely his best friend. I'd never been around Jack Russell Terriers before, so his energy and inquisitiveness was an exhausting but thrilling surprise. That was 14 1/2 years ago.
In the past year it has become obvious that (34 comments)
Let Them eat Cake! - 03/12/09 06:36 PM
Did you ever eat dirt? NO? Well, then, you don't know what you're missing. My husband loves to tease our youngest grandsons who live near us. They are aged 3, 4 and five. Whenever we pick them up for a sleep-over at our house he tells them we're having dirt for dinner. They giggle and say "No, Pa, we can't eat dirt!" Recently "Pa" had a birthday and the grandsons and I plotted. Let's make him a dirt cake. We made it together and everybody had a great laugh when "Pa" saw his beautiful dirt cake. Yummy.

Are you a morning person? - 03/12/09 08:41 AM
Good Morning! At 8:00 am I walked across the parking lot and past the palm garden next to my office door. I usually make it into my office and get everything set up to begin my day by now but today my dog is sick and I spent a little extra time with him. As a result I'm a little behind schedule.
I have friends who don't get up before 9:00 am. I have a personal policy of not calling customers and clients before 9:00 because I know some folks sleep later than me. But I love being a morning (9 comments)
