Fab Friday Blog Share

fab friday blog shareHere it is, Fab Friday Blog Share time once again and I think you’re going to enjoy this week’s great finds. Personally number five on the list was a goldmine for me.

I’ve had a very productive week getting back in the swing of posting to this blog, my other blog, writing content for my upcoming PLR site, and rebuilding my Halloween site that decided to disappear. A ton of work (actually longer than just last week) but it’s ready to roll.

And surprise, surprise, I received my final payout from Squidoo. As many have voiced, their departure timing is rather rude considering that the next few months stand to be good revenue months. But that’s the risk you take with 2.0 sites.

Today’s Fab Friday Blog Share

happy Friday

Today’s Fab Friday Blog Share falls on August 8th a memorable date for some. For in 1963 the Great Train Robbery took place in Buckinghamshire, England whereby a group of masked bandits stole an estimated $7 million dollars (2.6 million pounds) in the raid. Although eventually captured, much of the money was never recovered which makes me wonder how many trees were dug up in hopes of finding the stashed loot.

Interestingly, on this date in 1960, the song “Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini” hits the charts at #1, in 1963 the group the Kingsmen release “Louie, Louie”, where upon radio stations label it obscene. I imagine they would be quite shocked hearing the lyrics in some of today’s music.

wedding-anniversaryToday April 4th is my wedding anniversary and I can happily say that I’ve been married to my best friend for 22 years. I’m so happy to be one of the lucky gals.

There are all kinds of superstitions concerning the weather on your wedding day to supposedly predict whether it will survive or not. Well ours must have been destined to last because we experienced rain, snow, thunder & lightning, and then sunshine as the ceremony started. What wonderful memories. [Read more…]

Hello and Happy Friday to you,

It’s a beautiful crisp winter day here in the Pacific Northwest as the temperatures are in the mid-30s to 40s and the sun is beaming. That’s something we cherish as winters are often filled with gray skies and rain.

Actually there’s so much rain that it is said we have more terms for rain than anywhere. Terms like showers, sprinkles, constant drizzle, downpour, mist, liquid sunshine, you get the idea. [Read more…]
