Sorry updates are not as regular as they used to be. Also, forgive me for taking a little help from the meme world for tonight's edition. It had to be a quickie; it's already way past my bedtime! I did finish my postcards though--finally! More on the swap later. And just because this post needs a little color, here's a pretty picture I took while waiting at a stoplight the other day. I enjoy a landscaped median.

  1. Hi, found you randomly. You know I still don't know what a 'meme'is. I think everyone else does! Care to enlighten a very ignorant computer-baby?


  2. Scary how close my answers would have been to yours. And thanks for the pick. Spring's still on the verge here, though today's nice. In another month, it'll be glorious here. Happy Friday!

  3. I found out a couple of new things about you. I am gonna copy you Melissa and do my own A-Z!!

  4. Anonymous Jones,
    A meme (rhymes with theme) is, in the blogging world, basically a template of questions or writing prompts that you fill in your answers on. Some examples are here and here. There's a whole blog dedicated to memes here.

    I hope this helps!

  5. i do not know how mem rhymes with theme. Enlighten me on that one.

  6. Well first of all, it's spelled meme, with an E on the end. If it didn't have an E, it would rhyme with them. Here's a simple phonics lesson. Generally speaking, a single vowel followed only by a consonant will give the vowel a "short" sound. For instance, rag or glob. However, adding an E after the consonant results in a "long" vowel sound, as in rage or globe. This explains why meme rhymes with theme. Got it? Now you'll be able to teach it to Layne, Prestin, and Cassidy... ;-)
