hi again! Feb. 3rd, 2014 @ 03:49 pm
After a long hiatus, I'm back! I hope everyone is doing as well as they can be. I'll be trying to catch up on all the posts I missed. :)

Hi Everyguys! Jun. 11th, 2013 @ 07:29 pm
So, I've been away from LJ for a bit it seems.  I come back and they've messed with the friends pages.   I used to be able to continue looking at people's entries by clicking "previous page".   Now it only lets me do that once or twice.   Anyone know how I can go back further like I used to?

super QUICK update post! Cancer and Ireland (not at the same time) Mar. 14th, 2013 @ 09:02 pm
I finished cancer treatments on Feb. 18.  Yea, ME!

I'm currently typing this update from IRELAND!!!!   Ashford Castle to be exact.

LOVING THIS COUNTRY!!!   I can't say enough good things about this place and it's only been two days thus far.

Hope everyone is doing well.   We've spent the last 2 days at Ashford Castle and have had an AWESOME time!
Everyone in Ireland (save for the crabby immigration officers in Dublin) have been so friendly, kind and welcoming.
We're currently at Ashford Castle in Cong.
We've had the most amazing experience flying Harris Hawks.  Two named Aztec and Chico on Tuesday and Uisce (prounounced Ish-ka) and Geimhreadh (gee [rhymes with hee] -vrah) today  They have other hawks with Irish names, like Earrach (air-ach) which means spring, Fomhar (four-v) which means fall and Samhradh (sow-ra) which means summer.   Geimhreadh means winter and Visce means water (that hawk likes to bath alot).   We also flew Dingle, the 23 year old European Eagle Owl today.
We have lots of pictures and I was able to successfully film one of Dingle's flights without him flying out of focus.  They're all amazing birds.
Tomorrow morning we head out to the Galway where we'll be visiting the Cliffs of Mohar and the Burren tomorrow and the Aran Islands on Friday.  Saturday we head back to Dublin for a 6 night stay at the Ritz-Carlton Powerscout in Wicklow.

If you ever have a chance to go to Ireland.  Don't think about it...just go!

ETA:  Correct spelling of Uisce (the U on his sign looked like a V to me...oops!)

Weekend Up North Sep. 4th, 2012 @ 08:10 pm
I went up to Traverse City and Mackinaw City this weekend.  I had saved up enough points to redeem for 2 free nights at a chain hotel so I was thrilled to use them on an 'expensive' weekend.   I enjoyed eating at my favorite restaurants and sitting and watching the water on Grand Traverse Bay.   During the time I sat, I offered to photograph an Indian couple with their son on vacation.  They were happy for my offer.  Later, I was out on the dock by some big rocks when a wave came CRASHING in and spewed water up and into the air on me and the other people around me.  I shared a laugh about that with a trio of young Asian men on vacation.

I love traveling.  I really love the fact that you can share innocent moments with people from all walks of life and from all over the globe that you meet.   People are happy on vacations and are kind to one another.  I love that the best.

Hope everyone else had a great weekend.

:D

Another question and answer meme Aug. 30th, 2012 @ 04:45 pm
Stolen from some LJ friends (you know who you are!):

Comment and I'll:

1. Tell you why I friended you.
2. Associate you with something. A fandom, a song, a colour, a piece of fruit. SOMETHING.
3. Tell you something I like about you.
4. Tell you a memory I have of you.
5 . Associate you with a character/pairing. (This could be a little difficult, since I'm not all that fannish anymore, but I'll do my best. Hopefully they'll be characters you're familiar with/have heard of! If all else fails, I might assign characters from my books.)
6. Ask something I've always wanted to know about you. (Or else I'll just ask a random question. I reserve that right.)
7. Tell you my favorite user pic(s) of yours.
8. Tell you that you must spread this disease in your LJ. (Not required, but encouraged)

It's August! Aug. 5th, 2012 @ 09:27 pm
My birthday was on Friday and I had a great day.  I sign up for birthday clubs at restaurants and have an e-mail box full of free meals, drinks and other assorted goodies that I have until the rest of the month to redeem.  That means, Friday was the official start of

Yeopapalooza! 


Looking forward to having a good time eating out and visiting with friends!

On Friday, I took the day off of work and went out to lunch with my mom and 3 of my 4 sisters in Detroit at a place called Texas de Brazil.  Fabulous place.  It's a steakhouse with a twist and has a salad bar with 50 - 60 items, enough to satisfy my vegetarian sister.
When we got home, I watched the Olympics! with my mom.  We've always watch them together, winter and summer.  Yeopards love the Olympics!

On Saturday, 2 of my sister's and I went out to breakfast and then in the afternoon, I went to one of their houses and we went swimming in her pool until evening.

Today, irish_horse and quasievil_bunny and I went to out to lunch and then saw Spiderman afterwards. 

All in all, had a great birthday weekend and a great start to Yeopapalooza! 

Hope everyone else had a great weekend, too.  :D :D :D

Help save the kitteh! Jul. 24th, 2012 @ 10:34 am
Please see the repost that follows this entry.

I don't know these people but I'll always do whatever I can to help a kitty in need.  

I donated...I hope people who are able to will as well.   They take donations of even a dollar.

Thanks.
