Blog Design, My Bible and Thursday Thunks

Hello Everyone,

Remember back in February when I was having blogging issues so I switched to Firefox? Well if you don't I was having blogging issues and switched to Firefox. lol I just want to say that I love Firefox! I have been using it on all of my home computers and my w
ork computer since then. It really works a lot better than Internet Explorer.

Remember back in February when I posted that I was going to be looking for someone to make me a new blog template? Well if you don't back in February I had decided to find someone to make me a new blog template. Thus began my search for a blog designer. I looked at several people but the three that I liked best were Jennisa over at Once Upon A Blog, Danielle at The Design Girl Blog Design (formerly Blogs by Danielle) and April at April Showers. I know several bloggy buddies who have used all of them. All of them got great reviews.

Now while the other two are great I went with April. All three of them are very talented and do great work. I picked April because I really liked her illustrations the best. All of her illustrated people have different faces and I liked that. So sometimes next month I should have a whole new cute template. Yay!!

Monday when I went to Bible study I left a little sad. I love the class so it wasn't that. I have had my Bible since I was 10 years old. I have had the cover since about 1986. Well Monday I looked at that old cover that had lace hanging down from where the stitches have gave way and it looked a little dirty. I don't want to wash it because I am afraid it will just tear apart. So I thought well I'll take the cover off and just take my Bible. My Bible cover looks great. I had to take out all of my notes, obituaries, book markers from past loved ones and pictures of my brother Ray. I also had to take out a cross necklace I got when I was 20 that I've always kept in my Bible. I didn't want to lose any of it so I just left it all at home.

When I got to Bible study I noticed that the cover is about to come completely off of my Bible. That is why I was sad when I left Bible study. After I left I went and bought me a new cover and a new Bible. I am going to put everything back into my old Bible and put it next to my bed where it has laid for years. I am retiring it. I am sad.

I love Bible study. We are doing "Esther - It's Tough Being A Woman" by Beth Moore. It is great. I was so excited when I found out we would be studying Beth Moore.

Ok now for Thursday Thunks:

This week we are answering some crazy questions brought to you by Berleen & Kimber via phone & Skype conference, the color mango and the number 70566.

1. What color is your front door?


2. We discussed our folks in previous TT so now tell me about your siblings. If you are an only child, tell me whether or not you wanted siblings, older, younger etc.

Emily the oldest - sensitive, but if you make her cry you better watch out.

Angie she came after me, 3rd - a good person, she gave me her kidney.

Helen the youngest girl, 4th - she likes to be in control, a good friend.

Paul the oldest boy, 5th - caring and loud. lol

Ray the baby, 6th - we miss him, he was very animated had lots of friends and fun to be around.

3. What color/type butterfly is your favorite?

This one that my friend Yaya sent me:

4. Will you be celebrating Cinco De Mayo?

Sí es mi herencia.

5. Oprah- love her, hate her, or don't care?

Use to like her now I don't care.

6. Are you worried about the spread of swine flu?

Yes with my impaired immune system it is a big concern for me.

7. Hard or soft pillows?


8. How many trees are in your neighbor's yard?


9. What was the color of the last car you saw?

Dark blue.

10. When does your driver's license expire?

My birthday July 16, 2009

11. Look at the clock on your computer and type the numbers backwards.


12. When you put your pants on, what leg do you put in first?


13. How would you respond to this letter if you were an advice columnist.

I am an ugly woman. I was an ugly baby and child even! It is a fact. I am 36 now and I have never had a boyfriend, and I am still a virgin.

Due to me not having men in my life, I have poured everything I have in to education and my career. At 36 I am the youngest (and first female CEO) at a big, successful, tech company. I have over 200 personal patents and millions of pounds in investments.

I have everything: huge house, holiday villa in Spain, 3 cars, power boat, a race horse, etc. but as much I try to talk myself into everything being “great” I cannot help but to miss that special someone to share it all with.

Most of my friends are married with kids and I feel like I am gradually drifting away from them also.

Where can I find someone to marry an ugly woman?

Go to Alaska apparently the man to woman ratio is pretty good. Plus they like ugly women.

That was fun!! Now click on the Thursday Thunks picture and check out other blogs that participate.

That's all folks!

Have a blessed day!

I always wanted a lot of siblings. I envy you. I only had one sister. She was old enough to be my mother. We never related to one another on a sister to sister basis but on a mother to sister basis. I didn't need another mother.

Looking forward to seeing your new blog design - what fun!
