HERE'S TO YOU THURSDAY


Today is the day that I celebrate all of the amazingness that you contributed to blogland this week. Sadly, I have not kept up with all of the amazingness that you have poured into blogland this week. I have slept through most of it. I have poked my head in here and there, but I haven't read nearly enough to do a decent job out of a Thursday post. So, this will be a mishmash. Some dedications and some stuff for everyone. We are doing something VERY different. On that note... it is that day again. What day is that you ask? How can you have forgotten? Drum roll please. It is HERE'S TO YOU THURSDAY, of course! The very best day of the blogging week. It is the precursor to the best day of the work week.

Here is what is going down: this is a weekly event. The best (or worst) part is that I am not going to explain why I chose "whatever" footage for each of you. If, you watch your footage and are scratching your head at the end, well that means I didn't do a very good job. However, all is not lost. You can email me at rarichards68@gmail.com and ask me what I was thinking when I chose that particular piece of footage off of youtube and connected it to you. And then I will tell you. Then I will start sending up prayers that I haven't offended the crap out of whoever is on the receiving end of that email....lol. Because, honestly, I will tell you right now... I admire all of you enormously so I really hope that doesn't happen.

Also, this is not an exclusive venture by any means. I hope that you will take the time to watch ALL of the footage because I don't pick bad footage:-) I also hope that you might check out the blog of the person I dedicated the footage to because they are pretty darn awesome. If you haven't figured this out yet... I pick the footage based on something that you've written or something that I've gleaned from your personality. Think on that for a while... If you are having trouble watching the entire video (meaning it is being cut off on one side), click on it a couple of times and it will take you straight over to youtube. If you click on the four squares at the bottom corner of the video, it will enlarge it to fill your screen. The escape key will bring it back to normal size. The back arrow will bring you back to my page.

Now, let's get this PARTY STARTED!!!!

  10. Hi, following you from Java's Over 40 hop--a day late, but that's not unusual for me. Looking forward to exploring your blog. Love the videos.

  11. Another great Here's to you Thursday! I'm sorry I've been so scarce, but between the computer being sick and me being even more so, it has just sucked around here lately. I'm trying really hard to get into the Christmas spirit and I'm only slightly "there" so far.

    I hope you start feeling better really soon. Life and chronic illness have sure been kicking a lot of butt around here these days and I for one think it's about time for a break!

    I don't have a lot of computer time this afternoon, but I really missed you a bunch, so I had to pop in and say hello. I was having a bit of "Robin withdrawal"!

    Please take care, my dear friend. I'll be in touch when I can. Maybe by the next time I get to pop in to say howdy, you'll be feeling more like your old self. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for sure!

    Warmest hugs,
    Martha :~)

  12. This is such a fantastic idea and must take you ages to work out. Love the video you chose for me...actually it was spot on on several levels but thought the jump rope sequence at the end was brilliant...much better than me.:) You have brought a smile to my face. Thank you Robin.

You can now add YouTube videos in your comments by copy/pasting the link. AND/OR you can insert an image by surrounding the code with this: [im]code[/im]. In the case of images, make sure that your code is short and simple ending with something like .jpg. If you want to use a pic from someplace like Google Images, click on the image, then click on View Image. That is the code you want!
