2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helpers prepared a 2014 annual report for my little blog.

Here’s an excerpt of what they calculated and discovered:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 7,100 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

Memorial Day Weekend!

Thank You For Your Service ~

 

wwii-memorialThis is Memorial Day
In our land of the free.
Itโ€™s because of those who sacrificed
Whose graves youโ€™re here to see.
They fought on foreign lands
And across the open sea,
And paid the ultimate price
To keep you and I free.
So put all things aside
And honor this important day,
Which we have dedicated
As our Memorial Day
–LTC. Ret. Samuel Lombardo of Destin

Happy Mother’s Day

๐Ÿ“ก May You All Feel Blessed Today ~

gardentea3My Mother’s Tea And Me

Mother my darling,
Mother my dear.
I love you now and tomorrow
Each and every day of the year!

My Mom’s Recipe for Love,
Hangs on my kitchen wall.
I mix it up now and then,
To catch my child when they fall.

Take a cup or two of laughter,
And a pinch of good advice.
Pour in patience by the bowlful,
Then stir it once or twice.

Fold in lots of hugs and kisses,
And a mother’s gentle care.
Cook it ’til it’s nice and warm,
Then spread it everywhere.

Serve it at the table,
Share it with cakes and tea.
Listen to the stories of woe,
In the shade of Mother’s Tree.

I discovered a great website a few years ago, that shares old poems, tales and craft ideas for everyone young and old. It’s called The Virtual Vine and I really recommend it strongly, for inspiration in all seasons, warm, hot and cold.

It Snowed

Image3๐Ÿ“ก Ok Let’s Not Panic ~

I’ve been watching CNN which is covering the disaster in Atlanta. Being a little farther north and hit with a bit more snow than Atlanta, it’s some what annoying that CNN is trying to create a blame game story here.

Instead of covering the unusual occurrence of the event. Of course Atlanta was a disaster, this doesn’t happen that far south. Of course traffic was a nightmare, this doesn’t happen there.

They should be treating this like the natural disaster it is for that region. Then they can ask the questions, why wasn’t the city prepared and why didn’t they plan ahead.

I feel so sorry for the people all over the south who aren’t used to this. But let’s not act like this a tornado or hurricane and the entire city is under water and we need to blame someone for it. Geezo Peezo!

A World Wide Event
February 1st, Saturday at 12:00pm Eastern U.S.

As concerns mount over next month’s Olympic games, Russian President Vladimir Putin is insisting he’s got things under control. Many governments are offering assistance and making plans to protect their athletes. The U.S. announced they are making emergency evacuations plans for Americans in case something does occur.

There is an overwhelming atmosphere of concern, dread and fear associated with the Olympics.
