Road Trip A-Z Challenge Day 16


Post A-to-Z Road Trip [2013]

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/2013/05/want-to-join-us-for-ultimate-road-trip.html

Sixteen days on the road is a long trip.  Since I had planned for this to be a cross country trip in a way, to last at least 30 days that would put us at our road marker of the midpoint.

My grander scheme was to do this for a year.  I am not certain if I have the steam to do that.  Time will tell.  Can I make it interesting and vibrant enough  to keep readers attention and drive to want to come back each day to see where it has gone or will they fade from boredom?

My first stop is a blog site that is new to me and I have enjoyed the wonderful photography:

http://jennifernicholewells.com/ Check her out as she has been Freshly Pressed.

Next stop is a shout out to someone who wrote a poem to his wife as a gift for their anniversary:

http://ivonprefontaine.com/2013/05/22/marriage/ I felt compelled to mention that as the Daily Prompt today was about “Jealousy” and there is obviously nothing like that going on in their strong relationship.

Our Next stop is some more great photography:

http://carolwelsh.wordpress.com/ She never ceases to amaze me with her work.

Great reading ahead as we make our next stop so hold on to your seat:

http://whoatethedaisies.wordpress.com/ Not giving it away, you have to go see.

http://revisedgewater.wordpress.com/ Told you not telling…

http://stuphblog.wordpress.com/ I will say with this one I am glad that the YouTube Tuesday is back…There are great articles also.

For a blog site that has only been around since August of this Year, lets give a warm welcome to:

http://khanasweb.com Welcome aboard and may you have many blessed years of  Writing and Photography in your future.

Well that will do it for today as I have an article to write about why my stuff has been so short…allergies…

Till tomorrow…when we are on the road again…

In memory of those we have lost I am not doing a blog for a road trip today but am leaving this thought with you for the people who have come forward as volunteers and have contributed in helping to find each and every one of the missing, wounded and may our prayers be with every family involved.  The losses are incredible and our hearts ache.

See you tomorrow for our next leg of the journey.

Road Trip A-Z Challenge Lucky Day 13


Post A-to-Z Road Trip [2013]

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/2013/05/want-to-join-us-for-ultimate-road-trip.html

I certainly hope that some of my readers are not superstitious as I would hate to lose you for a day just due to a number.

Let’s crank up the radio with an appropriate song and start our journey then:

Since our trip is based on comments and my feed back lately, let me check to see where we are going to be starting our trip.

http://hannahsterry.com/ What an appropriate stop indeed.  Everything from music to cartoons here for our morning entertainment.

Our next stop is a bit of reading material for the passengers since the driver should only do that …

http://maggiestoriesawb.wordpress.com/ lots of great reading material here.

Now that you are content with reading material we are off to a new destination:

http://kloipy.wordpress.com/  This one is such a hot site we may have to stop for refreshments while reading since this one has been featured on Freshly Pressed. You will have to see for yourself why as it is so hot…it will make my pages sizzle if I let out the secret.

One of the fun things to do is meet travelers while you are traveling.  With that said lets meet:

http://patriciaddrury.com/ She seems to do a daily travel through life.  Not giving it away…go see…

Since 13 is not supposed to be a lucky number I am going to make this a short day and stop with the next blogger who should keep you quite entertained for the rest of the day with everything that he does…

http://pouringmyartout.wordpress.com/ You really never know what you are going to find when you go into the reader in the morning and see his posts.  I will say he is versatile in his style and bold and daring.  the rest you can see for yourself.

Until tomorrow I leave you with a song, Please pardon the language as I did not say it.  I thought I would go with a younger version

For you younger readers I will give you the original song also that proves my children are right (even though this is before my time) I am older than dirt.

Road Trip A-Z Challenge Day 12


Post A-to-Z Road Trip [2013]

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/2013/05/want-to-join-us-for-ultimate-road-trip.html

Hard to believe that our journey has brought us into day 12 already.  Time really does fly when you are having fun.

I really do hope that you have enjoyed the journey so far.

Lets stop first and see what snack our first visit is preparing so that we can at least eat as we travel.

http://rantingchef.com/author/rantingchef/ When someone is not guest blogging or he is not doing a competition, he is reviewing products for the kitchen here.  This was one of the first blogs that I began to follow.  I have even had the privilege to be able to be a guest blogger this past fall.  It was such fun.

Today he is whipping up with a tutorial a dish of http://rantingchef.com/2013/05/19/so-much-for-cooking-classes/

Green Beans with Caramelized Onions and Almonds

Now that we have our food lets travel on to our next stop:

http://fingerprintwriting.wordpress.com/

Totally pack a bag lunch before you visit this site as you are really going to be there for a while.  Elaine writes about her life and happenings in it that are real.  You are aware from the first line in each article that they are written from the heart and genuine.  I only hope you enjoy as much as I have.

Next stop since you are back now:

http://vosperdruiter.wordpress.com/ Getting a view from a Pastor of a Church, now I really hope that perhaps you at least packed a snack or two and perhaps a second bag lunch.  There is also a lot of great reading here.

Our next stop is at http://herapereira.com/ Who not only has poetry and several interesting blogs of her own but a few reblogs of interest.

Our last stop of the day since I really do need to get back to my house guest and stop being rude is:

http://womenwhothinktoomuch.wordpress.com/ If that site does not keep you busy till tomorrow, nothing will.    She has categories with subcategories that I think have subcategories. LOL

She is one busy gal.

Till tomorrow signing out,

Road Trip A-Z Challenge Day 11


Post A-to-Z Road Trip [2013]

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/2013/05/want-to-join-us-for-ultimate-road-trip.html

Today is Day 11 and is so full of awards that just came rolling in during the day as I was about to do the road trip that I decided to postpone the trip to include them with the people who had nominated.

The first stop on our trip I may have mentioned prior, however she is such a must read daily that I feel safe in mentioning her again.

http://theseeker57.wordpress.com/2013/05/10/an-award-with-no-rules-thank-you-utes-happy-world/

http://theseeker57.wordpress.com/about/ (she has such an interesting site I am sending you there and will wait till you come back to continue)

Now that you are back… The award is 2013-apr-24-most-infl-blogger-award-utesmile

The way this one goes is…if you have left a comment on any of my blog sites…you qualify for this award.

Next Stop would be to another favorite of mine that is always a fun read:  http://revisedgewater.wordpress.com/2013/02/19/captain-procrastination-accepts-an-award/

To read about Revisedgewater just go to http://revisedgewater.wordpress.com/ I actually think there might be a little more than 33 grams of blog there.

That award was nordic-bliss-liebster-award

Now I am in trouble as this one comes with rules…

1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.

2. Answer the questions that the tagger set for you plus create 11 questions for the people you’ve tagged to answer.

3. Choose 11 people and link them in your post.

4. Go to their page and tell them.

5. No tag backs!

Hmm this is supposed to be a road trip about other sites, not me lol… I am going to answer his eleven questions and that should tell you eleven things about me.

1. Which superpower would you want? Not sure what is available out there in this modern age.  Does this question come with a list?

2. If you had that superpower, would you be my sidekick? Oh You had better ask your wife first.  Maybe a cyber sidekick will have to ask hubby if I can take time to fight bad guys  in my spare time.

3. If you could make sure a certain actor/actress would never be allowed to make another movie ever again, who would it be? I do not really keep track of actors and actresses so I guess they get a reprieve here.

4. Why? Too busy with my own life to live in that fantasy world.

5. What are you 33 grams of? Love, compassion, understanding and patience.

6. Are you as tired of this post as I, Captain Procrastination, am? LOL

7. You’re blocking the TV. Can you move a little to the left? I just turned sideways. Now you can see.

8. I guess I should’ve asked this as number 3, but I don’t care enough to put them in order. What would your superhero name be if you were my sidekick? Love overwhelmer

9. Do you have any money I can borrow? I might eventually pay you back one day. Sorry just gave hubby last twenty.

10. Which movie character (it can be from any movie) would you most want with you during a zombie apocalypse? not familiar with Zombie Apocalypse.

11. . Which movie character (it can be from any movie) would you least want with you during a zombie apocalypse? Ditto That looks like a game…

Eleven nominees will be included with the next award which also needs nominees:

So there is Day 11 Road Trip of Awards…thank you for all of them.  This has been an inspiration to really carry on and I now know that perhaps I just encountered a bad apple. Then blessings were bestowed with the awards and I now feel like a new woman that can conquer the world of writing one road trip at a time.

Thank you to all my readers for the support.

Road Trip A-Z Day 10


Post A-to-Z Road Trip [2013]

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/2013/05/want-to-join-us-for-ultimate-road-trip.html

Today is Day 10 of my road trip.  I have a heavy heart today.  I am so easy to get along with. 
When I find something of interest on the internet, I always try to paste where I found it just so my readers can go there and read all about it.

I do not try to take credit for something that I have not written myself.  
I have visited several blog sites where they do not create any work of their own, they simply report on great finds that they have stumbled across.

I have my email address plastered across all of my blog sites where I can be notified, should I post something that someone does not care for where they could privately contact me.  To just report me to Word Press and turn me in for a violation without a word, I felt was a bit extreme.  Even a comment on the post itself would have prompted me to have removed the post if that was what the author wanted.

Today it is like the little car is running with hesitation.  Needs a little tune up.

Perhaps I will just give you a road trip of my various blog sites today and tune up my engine.  
Day 11 might just be “The Little Engine That Could”  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Little_Engine_That_Could 

It is just another day in Paradise so here I go…

So for our business lines we have the following blogs:

The rest of my blogs were created either by accident then recreated as I did not know how to fix the names or were intentional for cooking.

Sorry to make the journey so short today, however till I get the mess cleared up with Word Press, here I sit.  

My engine is in the shop for repair so let’s see what tomorrow brings.

Road Trip A-Z Challenge Day 8


Post A-to-Z Road Trip [2013]
http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/2013/05/want-to-join-us-for-ultimate-road-trip.html

This trip has been so much fun so far and the reader response has been incredible.  
I am glad that I have had readers who are traveling with me every day.
This has really made it feel like a real road trip to explore parts unknown of the writing world.
The nice part is we can all do it in our pajamas with a cup of our favorite coffee or beverage.
The About me sections of each stop are what the Author writes.  It is their own words so you get to know them.

So off we go to our first stop:

http://organizationandinspirationforfellowwriters.wordpress.com/ 

About Denise Reashore

Denise M. Reashore spends most of her free time reading, writing, and gardening – – or staring out the window at the brightness of a new day and dreaming of digging in the earth. Throughout the winter, precious free time goes into mapping and planning her future garden and, hopefully, writing and reading retreat. The rest of the time, from September to June, she spends working as an elementary school teacher. She lives on almost 3 acres, in an old Victorian style home, with her husband, dog, and two cats .

http://olddognewtricksblog.wordpress.com/ 

I was born in Seattle and got a BA in Journalism fromthe University of Washington. As an advertising copywriter—one of the original Mad Men— I wrote material for more than 100 major firms in California, including PR for the Apollo lunar space program. I received numerous awards including a CLIO (the Oscar of advertising). 

[comp] Man and Dog [32kb]

I was also a sportswriter and screenwriter, and many of my screenplays have won and been finalists in the Motion Picture Academy‘s Nicholl, Acclaim, Chesterfield, Hollywood Symposium, and FADE INcompetitions. My articles and stories have been published in numerous men’s magazines as well as youth-oriented publications like BOY’S LIFE.

I enjoy the fanciful and macabre on screen and in books. I now live in the shadow of Mt.Shasta, surrounded by a loving family and one sweet pit bull named “Dreamer.”

Ultimate Goal

I want to be a writer, yet Henry David Thoreau’s cautionary words echo in my brain: “How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live.” Knowing I have promised to blog daily for the coming year, I am committed to living the next 365 days to the fullest by seizing new opportunities, making old routines less mundane, and immersing myself in the details of ordinary situations. Building these habits will be key to convincing myself that I can legitimately sit down to write a future bestseller!

Namaste…

sometimes, links are better than words… :)

 

and sometimes, not…

I’m new to the blogosphere, relatively speaking… actually I’ve had this blog for a while… I didn’t browse or comment much, so it was pretty much written for me… now that I’ve collected an awesome list of bloggers to follow, I expect more than my eyes will see this blog (yaay!!!)… I still write it for me, but in the back of my mind there’s always that editor that reminds me that others may see this too… (don’t tell him/her how many times I used “that” in that last clause)… I hope that remains a win/win deal!!! ;)
 
note RE my ID pic  (no, not this one – this is the black hole I’m at the event horizon of) …  yes, that’s really me… about four decades ago… I just want everyone to know I’m still the same person I was then… trust me… (mwha-ha-ha-ha-ha)… this helps me feel that I knew back then what I know now… ;)

cheers, y’all!!!

The ABCs of the Alpacas

For some time I only had the one scape-alpaca, Arnie. I was in need of something a little bigger than a scape-goat when it came to excuses for not writing. Arnie filled the hole. He has since formed a herd, because as comments on here insist, alpacas are herd animals. Arnie and I are now accompanied by his lovely wife, Bondi, and son Cambridge.

Sorry it is a short trip today, I have a new hot water heater finally supposed to arrive in a few minutes if they do not cancel again today.

More tomorrow I promise if the sun rises and I am taking oxygen.

Road Trip A-Z Challenge Day 7 Part III


Post A-to-Z Road Trip [2013]

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/2013/05/want-to-join-us-for-ultimate-road-trip.html
http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/p/2012-to-z-challenge-sign-up-list.html

3-3in-11-3-in-12-3-in-1

This road trip is a little different today.  Since I received a 3 in 1 Award from http://nanuschka.wordpress.com/2013/05/14/304/

I am a free spirit, born 20 years too late. With a huge love for all things Latin, I think I might have been / should be Spanish! I live in a constant state of gratitude and seek to find something beautiful in every day. I live to inspire and help. Hopefully I will be able to make a small difference somewhere. My motto, there is always something to be grateful for!

The nominees will be my road trip:

There are fifteen nominees:

  1. http://l2ee2l.wordpress.com/

    About

    Hmm, where to begin. If I had my choice, I would definitely choose “living to eat.” I’ve grown to believe that “living to eat” and “eating to live” are not mutually exclusive. In everything, there’s a balance. This blog is primarily about that journey. As in many journeys, there will be detours. But that’s part of it.

    I’m The Mouse and I like to cook. Sometimes more than actually eating (but not by much). I rarely use recipes and often make things up as I go along. Part of this blog is to try and document what I cooked so I can cook it again. I’ll try to be as detailed as I can (key word “try). Don’t expect too much details. If you want more information, leave a comment, I’ll get back to you.

    The Cat is the chief taster in the family. If the dish passes her, it’s good. If it doesn’t, oh well.

    We also like to eat out, and eating out provides inspiration for me to try it at home, but with The Mouse’s spin on it.

    For now, about us, let’s just say Living, loving, eating, tasting, cooking, and sharing …

    Peace out.

    About

    I CAN BE EMAILED PERSONALLY AT KENTONA.LEWIS@GMAIL.COM

    I’m a retired factory worker living now in Boise, Idaho.

    In the fifth grade (second time around) I wrote a poem as a class assignment. The poem was read to the class and I remember one part of it quite well:

    “Instead of spelling and reducing my fractions                                                                                                                                                                                                                         I’m entertaining the class with all my actions                                                                                                                                                                                                                           That’s why I’m placed in this class’s rear                                                                                                                                                                                                                                What some learned in one will take me another year.”

    The class and teacher laughed and a powerful lesson was learned: Writing influences people‘s thought and emotions.

    In the tenth grade I wrote a short story that was passed to friends. They found it amusing and entertaining. For all my life I have written only for myself sharing with only friends and family, like a painter who paints only for themselves because of its personal enjoyment.

    Now being retired I’m sharing the stories that have rattled around in my head for years.

    What Is The Jittery Goat All About?

    The Jittery Goat went online in December of 2008. Something new is added once or twice a week. I’ve never had writer’s block – come close. I’m always searching for a topic that’s on people’s minds and that can be written humorously. That’s a challenge.

    I’m from the generation that stared at test patterns on the TV, first plastered the a transistor radio to their ear, served in an unwanted and unpopular war, saw a President assassinated, one resign, one that should have, saw men step on the moon, and people blow-up in the sky trying to go to space. I have lived though IMAX, Iphones, Ipads, and now living through I forgot, I don’t know, and I don’t care. I find myself most comfortable with people who are skeptical and cynical, but not to the degree of being downright negative or depressing. In other words they see or want to see the silver lining, but they are constantly aware of the dark cloud and are certain of its potential.

    The Need For Redemption Is Instinctive

    What is read early influences one throughout life.  The first book that I read that deeply impressed me (8th grade) was To Kill a Mockingbird. Atticus Finch was a man born of principle. He did the right thing because to him it was the only thing to do. The book Billy Budd followed.  It left me thinking for weeks. The outcry of Billy Budd prior to his hanging impressed upon me the need to always be forgiving. “God bless you Captain Vere!” was Billy Budd’s cry to the captain responsible for his execution just before hung. Of course, Melville likely barrowed it from Jesus’ execution, “Forgive them, for they know not what they do.”

    In my early twenties I became more interested in the Bible, not as literature or a collection of lessons taught by narratives, but as God’s inspired message to man.  It has been the Bible that gives redemption and forgiveness context, reason, and form for the Billy Budd-like declaration. We do it because God forgives. It is good and healthy for us emotionally, physically, and spiritually.

    Life is an unending chain of events of wrongs to us and as we have likewise done to others. Forgiveness is the only thing that makes sense. It gives depth and background for the Finch-like character I read about. Animals don’t retaliate for harm done to them, because they forget. Humans remember. Forgiveness is what prevents retaliation. It seems it is a quality that is unique in creation to humans.

    Redemption seems, in some ways, an underlying thread in my writing. If not outright expressed it is often the reflex that pushes the key that forms the word that makes the story.

    The desire to make things right when we offend is universal as is the need to extend forgiveness. It comes natural. We can’t live without it or the hope it produces.

So that is all I can fit for part III…it has taken me all day just to try and get this to publish…
