Sunday, April 20, 2008


MARY at Mary's Treasured Memories is a brand new blogger and she has started right off with a BEAUTIFUL is such a pleasure to look at photos of her family and her vintage dishes handed down from past generations......
not to mention the lovely, soothing music she plays.

Please go over and give her a big Blogger Hug and let her know how glad we are to have her with us. And, please tell her I said "HEY" !



Life is too short to wake up with regrets.

Love the people who treat you right.

Forgive the ones who don't.

Believe everything happens for a reason.

If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.

If it changes your life, let it.

God never said life would be easy.

He just promised He would see you through it.
Have a blessed and wonderful Sunday ~

Blessings and love, bj

Good morning, BJ, and thanks for your early morning visit. I believe we are both early birds. I'm sitting here drinking coffee out of my new coffee cup - which is just beautiful. The pattern is Rose Chintz. We had a wonderful, gentle rain last night, and I'm hoping it washed away some of this pollen. The birds are chirping outside my window.

I love your inspiration, and I believe we all are so incredibly blessed.

I'm off to visit the new blogger. Have a wonderful Sunday.

Have a beautiful Sunday BJ..I already went to Sweet Mary's new blog and I love it...that is so sweet of you to welcome her like ya girl!!!!

Hi BJ....I just read your comment you had left for me regarding Karen...

I'm not at all up to date with her, and I too am worried and concerned. I pray she is just taking a blogging break for a while and will join us again soon.

If you hear back from her, please, please let me know...'kay?

[I'm going to go meet your new blogging friend now. Glad you shared her link. Thanks, it's always fun to meet 'new' people that blog.]

Susie said...

Wonderful words to live by BJ!
Blessings to you too on this Sunday!

Hootin' Anni said...

to answer your question.

First, in the blog settings of yours [comments] I have the profile avatars - the pictures disabled. Where in my blog comment window, none of the photos/graphics of the comment author is showing up. It's turned off.

Then, when someone leaves a comment that I feel I should respond to, I copy their entire comment...go to do a comment in MY OWN blog and paste their comment and add my own repsonse. Then, with blogger now, you can use the option of "Name/URL"...I click that button instead on my own blogger name [the Google/Blogger] and copy and paste the commentor's name and their blog url. Then, post the comment.

[I then go back and delete the original comment that was there before I copied/repsonded]

I really think that Blogger should allow us to respond to the comments listed without all the hassle but this is the only way short of making a whole new response comment----I personally like to respond right IN the original comment myself.]

Hope that helps. It sounds like a lot of work involved, but really it takes just seconds of your time.

I am one who doesn't care if the fudge is cut straight or not. It looks scrumptious! Love your music, "I'll fly Alway" brought happy tears to my eyes. Please let me know what you think of my first blog effort. It's about my new obsession: RMS. Thanks

God Bless
