Celebrating Post 1000 and More Stuff...

So, this is my 1000th post in this blog and looking at that I'm pretty amazed. As a child I bought diary after diary, all of which languished on a shelf with only a few pages filled in. I just couldn't stick with a journal. But I love keyboarding, so combining a keyboard with a virtual diary was a perfect solution. I now find I can keep a diary of a sort. Generally I speak out six days a week unless I am on vacation or at a conference. I do it for me, but actually get read by others which thrills me because, as human beings, we all want to reach out to each other. I can hardly wait to find out what the next 1000 posts will consist of.

(Just to clarify - it is not my 1000th post to LJ or DW, but I copy my daily blog over to those two boards daily since I have started active membership on those forums.)

Last night was the Grammy Awards Show here in the US. That's the music industry's top awards. I often will watch the show, and watched last night's punctuated by the coughs and sniffles of my poor DH who is sick again with this crud that's been going around. The Grammy's show was quite good, turning out to be a celebration of a lot of older singers and groups - The Beach Boys, Sir Paul McCartney and Glen Campbell to name a few. Of course Whitney Houston was mentioned many times. Another amazing voice, Adele, cleaned up in the awards, winning all six that she had been nominated for. Do you have her album 21? It's worth getting or downloading - enjoy.

Happy 1000! *raises a glass* :)))

Yep, Adele is great. Pop is far from being my favorite music genre, but I like her and I think she's fantastic.
Thanks Ellynn. I hope to raise a glass of my own tonight - LOL. Although I love Classical music, Adele has such power and emotion in her voice, it's like listening to opera without the crazy plots and moved back a step from the extreme vocals that opera requires :-)

Happy 1000 Anniversary!

I kept diaries when I was a child (in the 1960s) and wish I could read them again! I loved writing in them and locking them with the tiny key.
I loved the little locks. I think that's why I really wanted to keep a Diary. But I was never successful, even when I was undergoing psychoanalysis and told to keep a journal. I just couldn't. But for some reason, over the past few years, I've been able to keep a public journal and have enjoyed sharing my life with others. So strange...

You're so sweet. I am always a bit amazed that people care anything about what I write or think, but I'm grateful that I am not just a lone voice speaking into an empty wilderness :-)

Thank you , my dear. It's quite amazing to me, something that I would never have dreamed I would do several years ago.

Thank you, Curious. I'm rather flabbergasted by it myself - LOL.

Congrats on a huge milestone! I just bought Adele's "21" over the weekend, and so far am loving it.
Awww, thanks Binky.

Hey, I've been is George doing? Can you give us a doggie update?

- Erulisse (one L)
George is doing very well, his paws are healed on the outside - they swell up if he does too much walking or jumping around though. He is still scared of policemen and banging noises but that is to be expected. He is doing much better than we expected him to - he is a survivor :D
Oh, that's fantastic news. Such a wonderful result to something that was so tragic when it occurred. *hugs* to all.
