Blog Hop Around the World

I was invited by the wonderful Patti Jarrett from A New Day Dawns to join in the fun of a Blog Hop Around the World.  I told her I would join in but as I write this I am not sure how great of a post it will be.  Typical Beth Ann fashion---I jump in and say yes without really thinking it through but I will give it a good ole try. I guess the hardest thing for me was to think about what "creative" thing I wanted to focus on in this post.  I do a bit of writing, a bit of photography and a bit of … [Read more...]

Saving Homes and Holy Lemonade

Ever wonder why I take blogging so seriously?   At times it appears to have become a full time job with little pay but you know what?   It is all about connecting with people and the relationships that we build with one another. Stay with me on this one--it is kind of complicated.  I have followed Rara's blog Rarasaur for quite awhile.  Rara is an amazing lady who is very compassionate and loving and caring and all those things that I like to embrace in my own life.  She sponsored the NaNo … [Read more...]

2011 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog. Here's an excerpt: The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people.

Click here to see the complete report. … [Read more...]

Prayers for our Australian Friends

If you have been watching the news lately you have been aware of the horrific flooding in beautiful Australia.  It is so sad when disasters like this strike and it really makes one realize the powers of nature.  Of course I have worried about our "friends' in North Queensland but after talking to one of my friends yesterday who lives in Homehill they are relatively fine and not too affected by the flooding that is in Toowoomba and Brisbane.  I am grateful but feeling so sad for the lives … [Read more...]
