What We Have Learned Since Aol Folded...

Bloggers spilled over Blogger land!....
We were scared, we were flustered and we were anxious!
Already I can say that we love the format here, we love the dashboard ..
It helps us keep in touch and it helps us meet new people here!
Carly welcomed us with open arms...(Suddenly Ellipsis)...
and Guido helped us move!
He really did a bunch of moving heaven and earth for us!
Thank you so much Carly!
And thank you so much Guido!
Thank you Blogger!
You are great!

"From Beefcake to Anti-Hero"
by Lynn Smith
Los Angeles Times

Please leave your thoughts, favorite movies, favorite memories of this great American here.My Deepest Condolences go out to his dear family, his friends, past co workers and past actors , who have cherished this great man.
He was such a wonderful character actor and I think his films are a great tribute to the life he gave Americans to aspire to.
His sauces made millions for less fortunate families across the globe.
Smith says he gave more than $250 million to 1,00 groups .
Among these groups she says were the"Hole in the Wall camps" for kids with life threatening diseases and his anti drug education programs for children in this country; which he claimed were his best contributions.He and his family were always so modest
about gigantic contributions to his all.
p.s. Oh it would be nice if you told us your favorite Newman movie or if you ever rented one. Cool Hand Luke and Butch Cassidy come to mind for starters

Great Blogs About Life

Michael Phelps: A Winner for all time

Tags: , , ,
NBC Olympic coverage
August 13, 2008

Michael Phelps is possibly one of the greatest gold medal holders of all time.
He is a great team player and a tenacious and glorious athlete.
He has broken time records and he stands to break the record for the sot gold medals of all time.
Ahh.. but that is only part of Michael.
Last year he helped another swimmer complete their matches and encouraged this other colleague by cheering him on.
When he was in elementary school as the story goes, a teacher told him that since he had ADD he had no talent. The teacher told his mom to take him home and to give up.
:) grins
His mother is a wonderful strong person. She took him to a great coach and the coach watched him in the pool.
He turned to his mother and he said" Michael has great potential. I see him one day becoming a great leader in swimming."
Please add your thoughts about Michael Phelps or a tribute to his life. Thanks!

Thank you good friends

She Brings Us Joy:A Tribute

She Brings us Joy

(this is a tribute to my sister....)

She guides our feet.. and when we were little

She'd help us sleep
She makes us laugh
When we are falling away
she pulls us back

there is no end
in her for long miles
and Journey's upending

She only loves
Our quiet Joys
And warms our heart
As  the fire goes out

She is our joy

Do you have a sister like her? please write about her here.:)
