Today is the day that I celebrate all of the amazingness 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.

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.

  1. Robin...I cannot for the life of me pull these up or open them. Anyone else had this problem? I'll try again later. Thank you though for thinking of me ...yet again...can't wait to see what you have come up with this time.

    Carol-the gardener

  2. I am sometimes having that problem on other people's blogs. I am fine here. If it is just a white blob. Double click in the area repeatedly and see if that doesn't make it pop. It might open it up or send you to the youtube page.

  3. Robin: Fantastic! Thank you.

  4. just a small red X in upper left corner...:( Boo! I've restarted and i've opened other blogs with photos...ok, send me the link and maybe i can open it later when i have more time, I've never had any problems with this before today.


  5. Hey Robin!! I'm following you from 40 and over blog hop.

    I've got to say that the dog in the tree and the caption had me laughing for the longest time. There is something about the look on his face . . . anyway he is precious!

    Visit my blogs when you get a chance . . . I have many! I'm looking forward to exploring more of your blog . . .

    Hope you are having an awesome week . . . Gina

  6. What a cool idea. I just hopped over from Java's Friday 40 and Over.


  7. Robin- loved the video for everyone and glad to see you got one for yourself! You put time and effort into this every week and deserve one too. Your choices are insightful, as always.
    Thanks for the insight in your comments on my blog as well. You are right. I have had to make tough choices about how I expend my time & energy over the last several years, especially concerning my family. I have learned to avoid being 'sucked into' needless drama and choose to be a positive influence whenever possible.
    I admire your ability to get through hardship and continue being a positive influence on others.

  8. Fabulous. Already following you! Thanks for sharing. I sure hope you'll come by my post Monday for Monday's Music Moves Me, and join us in the fun. Bring some of your choices with, and share. Have a great weekend & hope to see ya round Monday!

  9. Just stopping by to say hello and hope you have a peaceful holiday!
