This week has been crazy. For the first time since I started posting weekly HERE'S TO YOU posts on Thursdays, I missed one. This worries me. My Inspirational Song Saturday posts very quickly began sliding to Sunday. Now they occur more often on Sunday than Saturday. Oh dear. I promise to not make this a regular thing. HERE'S TO YOU THURSDAY is not going to regularly roll out on Friday. That just isn't going to happen.

I do have some new followers scratching their heads wondering what the big deal is. Click on HERE'S TO YOU DAY in my sidebar to get a line on some older posts. But here's the skinny on HERE'S TO YOU THURSDAY. Even though today is Friday. Today is the day that I celebrate all of the amazingness that you contributed to blogland this week. 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 HERE'S TO YOU FRIDAY, of course! The very best day of the blogging week. It is the precursor to the best day of the work week. It is the best day of the work week... this 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 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 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.
