Melanie came up with the idea of posting all memes on Monday so we could keep track of them all. So glad I decided to do this, 'cause as you can see, I got a few last week! If I didn't get them all in today (this is possible), I'll do it next week. Feel free to ping me if there's a deadline *ahem* 'cause I might miss it.
I recently received a Blog Blessing from Claudia, @ On a Limb who started Everyday Kindness as a way to invite and inspire fellow bloggers to be mindful of small ways to encourage and support one another in the real and virtual worlds.
The idea… it’s a game of tag with a difference, rather than looking inwardly, we look outside ourselves and bless, praise and pray for one blog friend. By participating in this endeavour we not only make the recipient of the blessing feel valued and appreciated, but we are having some fun too. We’re going to see how far the bloggin’ blessings can travel around the world and how many people can be blessed! Recipients of a bloggin’ blessing may upload the above image to their sidebar if they choose to. If you receive a bloggin’ blessin’ please leave a comment on this thread here so that we can rejoice in just how many blessings have been sent around the world!
Tag 5 (yeah, well, I have 6): I’d like to give this blessing to RennyBA @ RennyBA's Terella and his wife, DianeCA @ DianeCA's Metamorphoses -- two blogging activists whose goal is to make the world a better place. Their dedication and commitment amazes me. Also, to Colin whose just a flat-out giver and lover. He too is a blogging activist and currently puts a lot of focus on missing kids (esp Madeleine McCann). Mel @ Attitude, The Ultimate Power who's all about surpporting and providing ways to uplift the human spirit. Sandee @ Comedy Plus. I've said it before but want to pound it into the ground -- you're a friend to the end, you provide humor and a giving/loving nature like no other. And, finally Julie who is a hilariously, clever environmentalist -- making this world a better place to live. Need I say more? You've all inspired me to join in your efforts. You are blessings to the world, and to me.
Colin and Hanna -- they really like me, they really like me! (((((huge pooh-tigger hugs)))) Here's the linky lov'n they've passed my way:
—- START HERE —–
Anger is only one letter short of danger
If someone betrays you once, it is his fault;
If he betrays you twice, it is your fault.
Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
He, who loses money, loses much;
He, who loses a friend, loses much more;
He, who loses faith, loses all.
Beautiful young people are accidents of nature,
But beautiful old people are works of art.
Learn from the mistakes of others
You can’t live long enough to make them all yourself.
Friends, you and me…
You brought another friend…
And then there were 3…
We started our group…
Our circle of friends…
And like that circle…
There is no beginning or end…
Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is mystery.
Today is a gift.
So now, let’s see how many circle’s of friends we can make by simply adding your link on this Friendship Meme!
1-Catsy Carpe Diem, 2- Catsy Downloads, 3-Out of the Blue, 4- A Day to Savor and Relish 5- A Piece of Idea 6- Write Shy 7- Stupid Wise 8- onlinememorylane 9- See Me For What You Will 10- Michelle’s Small World 11.

My first meme from Mad Tomato -- seriously now. All these honors are making me feel all cuddly.
On February 4, 2008, at 00:00 GMT (7:00 p.m. New York /EST), NASA beamed the Beatles’ “Across The Universe” to the star Polaris, 431 light years away (that’s 431 years travel at the speed of light before our all-time favorite Beatles song reaches the 2.5 quadrillion miles away star). This is being done to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the song, the 45th anniversary of NASA’s Deep Space Network, an international network of antennas that supports missions to explore the universe, and the 50th anniversary of NASA.
Across the Universe
NASA has invited people around the world to play “Across the Universe” on their audio systems at the same time NASA beams its mp3 version into outer space. The idea was hatched by Beatles’ historian Martin Lewis, who encourages all Beatles fans to play the track as it is being beamed to the distant star. Additionally, this date will be known as “Across the Universe Day”. The event marks the first time a radio song has been beamed into deep space.
Did You Join the celebration! ('Cause I didn't - Ooops! Sorry Mr. Tomato - dang.)
I'm a failure. I screwed up. There's nothing more to say and nobody to tag 'cause there was a time limit. So sorry. Next time I'll pay closer attention -- by that time, the "L" will be removed from the middle of my forehead.
Award and Meme from Sandee - what a gal *huggies*
Rule #1: Copy all the links below and replace a single link under the appropriate letter of the alphabet. If your domain name, or even the title of your blog, starts with an "A," you'd replace the link under that letter and put the replaced link at the bottom. Also, don't forget to credit the tagger, or where you got the list from, at the end of the list with a full URL of the post so that a pingback gets generated.
F. Foster Me Up
T. The Painted Veil
Replaced Link: forumfinder.net; Previous Tagger: Sandee
Rule #2: You now have to "tag" at least five people and encourage them to participate so that this thing spreads like a virus. Remember, though, that not everyone's into these kinds of things, so don't be upset if they don't participate. Just simply replace your tag. Remember to tag blogs only and no pornographic ones as we do want to keep the integrity as a blogging community.
I tag: I'm tagging anybody who wants to be tagged. You visit, you want linky-love, you play.
Here's the award she gave me -- look!! *jumping for joy* She says I make her smile - yippee! Thanks, Sandee. You do the same for me. Love ya.
If you're in my blogroll, please take this. You're there for a reason, ya know! And, to you, Bluedreamer Paradise, you're in the "gotta add to my blogroll" list, so please take all of these awards!
Lookie, lookie lou (sp?)! From Jenn @ Enjoying The Ride, I say thanks!
And, again, I give these to you in my blogroll, if you haven't yet rec'd. Enjoy!
