Today is the day that I celebrate all of the yumminess that you contributed to blogland this week. Yep, 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.

I notice that I actually have some newbies for this event. How exciting! Well, 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.

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

  1. You always make such great choices. Love the videos!I love DOve for these videos.Such weight is put onto outer beauty, when the only thing that should matter is inner beauty!

  2. Awesome job again, Robin! I love those Dove videos so much -- I wish we knew what damage we were doing to ourselves and our impressionable little girls when we tell them (and ourselves) to be anything else but what we were born with.

    And of course, now I have I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) in my head.

    SO your fault.

  3. Hi Robin. i've missed chatting with you and I am just now back at home and have started reading your posts that I've missed. I cannot tell you how exhausted I am. I just wanted to say hi and thank you for your support.

  4. I LOVE the Proclaimers!! I went to see them live and they were brilliant, one of the best bands I've seen, lol!

  5. Thank you my friend...

    I couldn't have picked a better one if I tried. I'd say you nailed it. Fortunately, unlike poor Kris in this video, we shouldn't have to worry about a roof over our heads. But as they say, "There but by the Grace of God go I".

    All of the other videos are cool too. I'm honored to be a part of Here's To You Thursday!


  6. The Kenny Chesney w/ Dave Matthews- a special meaning to my husband & I after he came within 24 hours of death on July 12, 2009. As he recovered, we watched that video climb the charts on CMT's top 20. We would both get silent and just watch. I am so grateful for what that time brought to us and how it affects the way we choose to live now.

  7. Thank you for the Heartache Tonight by the Eagles! Loved it!

  8. Thank you so much! LOL - I haven't heard that song in years. :-) Have a great weekend!

  9. I always love to see what you've picked and for whom. I can see how you were so good at sales -- it's about understanding people and reaching them, which you always, always do on Thursdays ....

  10. Hahahaha...What the f*@$%^&? is my mother doing on youtube?

  11. Thanks for the Grandpa song!!!you sure know how to pick them you sure nailed me this week....I enjoyed watching the others too...:-)
