UrbanGal and Law embark on a New Project

Here, we'll say what we are doing here, and how welcome every one is..... We can work on it together.

Remember, we want Creative commons, or public domain images if we are looking for things on line. We can post our own pictures as well whenever you like.

WE can add our own playlist from YouTube. We can collect it together. Since eventually I'll have my meds, I'll be able to do more. If you like, start a list, and I'll go a hunting!

So, When's the Party Starting?

The Eight Irresistible Principles of Fun

There is another one by Box-of-Crayons. I had this on my main blog, but if any blog needs it, it is this one. I'm not singling any one out, UrbanGal61 It's no one's fault, UrbanGal61. Some people are just more, say, repressed in their older years, and are naturally terrified if anyone found out you some one was writing a COMPLETELY FICTITIOUS ACCOUNT THAT HAS SOME TRUTH ABOUT OUR FRIEND, DIANA. THE WORLD WILL BE A BETTER PLACE IF WE SHARE OUR WISDOM.
Tell you what. I'm going to post a secret. I've already posted it in a profile, but I'm sure no one read it. Or maybe 2 people. Then we'll see what happens, okay Urbevery one? .

Andrew Awards Me and I Award Elle

Andrew Carson, a member of this blog, and a very good friend, has awarded me "The Versatile Blogger Award." Read the rules after the jump, and you will understand the privileges and responsibilities to accept this award, as well as paying it forward.
The first person I am paying this to is my very best friend throughout life, Elle.

sday, 21 April 2011

I was given this award by Johnny Madrid aka Tim E. who writes an awe inspiring blog that you can find by following this link: Just Johnny... http://thetimebi.blogspot.com/ and I can't thank him enough for it. I don't exactly win a lot of awards for anything let alone this oddball collection of ramblings and scribbles I call a blog so I am very thankful indeed. Now there are some rules to receiving this award you give a thanks and a link back to the person who gave it too you (which goes without saying) you also have to share 7 things about yourself (I'll get to that in a bit), award 5-15 other bloggers yourself and of course contact them and tell them of their award.

I didn't have to give to much thought to who I would in turn give this award too so here are the people receiving this award from me in no particular order...

Linda Martin              http://www.needleinanewgroove.com/
Aheila the Writeaholic http://thewriteaholicblog.wordpress.com/
Jeremy Janson http://hailingfromgeorgia.blogspot.com/
Ursa Hawthorne   http://www.dyerintherough.com/
Sam Bowron       http://anightmareonsamityvillestreet.blogspot.com/

OK so 7 random facts about me this will be hard to think of stuff I haven't already written on one of these 70+ blog posts so far but here goes nothing...

1. I have lived in the UK all my life (best part of 30 years) and I have only visited London once and it was for a football game this year strangely it was a Scotland game why it wasn't played in Scotland I have no idea.
2. Ironically as a guy who stands anywhere between 6'6" and 6'8" depending on how bad my back is hurting me I have a problem with heights I don't like them be it on a ladder or high building I don't like it at all haha.
3. I am a diehard Airdrie United Football fan but have been to so few games over the last five seasons I feel like a fraud for saying so.
4. As a writer I find writing about dark subject matter much easier than anything else so either I'm nuts or I just have a good imagination........ I think I may be nuts haha.
5. For my work experience placement at high school I spent a week working at my local newspaper learning everything from reporting to printing and loved every minute of it.
6. In the last 6 months I was assigned to write a web series but after seeing the poorly executed 8 minute pilot episode I had my writing credit changed from Andrew Carson to Randal Fleming Jr. to try and distance myself from it but saying that if a second series goes into pre pro Randal will be happy to return to writing duties for a rewarding fee.
7. I am planning to either make it or break from it this year when it comes to my writing. If I don't sell something before the end of the year I will find some other kind of profession and just write as a hobby. No pressure then on me to succeed huh? haha.

Thanking you
The Housebound Writer

Aw, so sweet of you! Thanks! oh, I owe you an email.... :-) best, Ursa
Andrew G. Carson said...
Hi Ursa, you deserve this award for your outstanding blog and your ability to switch between genres and writing styles.
Ursa said...
*blushes* You'll be pleased to know that I've now blogged to pay forward the love :-)
Johnny Madrid aka Tim E. said...
Awesome! You deserve it my friend! I see you've already spread the love. Nice one mate :)
scribadiva said...
I am so honored, Andrew. I'm not going to start on it now:Today I spent 14 hours now just to get on the Internet. I got support, and for the most part, I reversed everything he did, and this is my first communication! I will pay it forward. And I have to say that you are as handsome as I suspected! Finally, more than just eyes. fyi, under website for Facebook, put your blog site. It's easier for Networked Blogs to stay connected. Now you've never seen a line on Facebook asking for your blog address, and yet Networked Blogs works through Facebook! So relax, you are not doing anything immoral or corrupt! I must come by more often; I'm hoping this machine keeps working. By tomorrow, I may have the same problems as I did today at noon. I have an Inspiron minitower, and so far, the hard disk was replaced, and now, who knows? I will be in touch ASAP, and if I've embarrassed you, delete this. Sweet tides, Andrew, and take care.

I have to read this over again. I'm squeezing in as much time as possible online--My blogs are a mess! The yellow flowers definitely helps the appearance, but I'm not sure what link, etc. to place on it. Let me know when you can.. ..Sweet tides, Andrew

From Shanti Peace Paz on Facebook

Shanti Peace Paz
Five tips for a single woman....

1. It is important that a man helps you around the house and has a job.

2. It is important that a man makes you laugh.

3. It is important to find a man you can count on! And doesn't lie to you.

4. It is important that a man loves you and spoils you.

5. It is important that these four men don't know each other.

I told her I have to confiscate this, because she's giving away the secret agenda we learn at birth, and I have 8 men that may read it and figure it out!

Speaking of men, Welcome Andrew. It would be nice to see your entire face.

Ok, Enough Geriatrics!

This blog was set up to talk about the days' schedules went like this:
Go to School
Go to Work
Go Home
Do Homework
Get Changed
Go out all Night
Go home and Shower

Instead I'm talking about broken hips? Please, someone help! I know UrbanGal is shy, so I guess I'm going to have to dig up my most outrageous story.

Give me some time. And any one that wants administrative privileges, so you can post your own stories, send me your email, and I 'll send you what you need to sign in. It sounds more complicated than it is.

Welcome, August Mayfield!

Such a Surprise!! Note to Kindle and UrbanGal61

Sorry, I'm not off sulking somewhere, I fractured my hip, and I'm seeing a surgeon tomorrow, the one that sent me home from the ED. Surgery right now is like a death sentence, which is why I haven't had my knees replaced. These surgeons in the Berkshires just don't want to kill me. Not good enough. I have one in Springfield that won't do it unless I have a pain specialist for life--there's a one-o\in-three chance it won't work, and I'll be in excruciating pain for the rest of my life. The surgeon that will do it if it doesn't ruin his statistics "{doesn't] want to hear about pain, " Screw him.
The other reason I'm bringing this up, is  UrbanGal61, I forgot a critical thing: If this surgeon decides on microsurgery with good odds, I need you to be on my HIPPA. I don't think I went into the details why laughing boy is off, and my husband will have me on machines til kingdom come--he's very Catholic, and we got married so we wouldn't have to go to church after, you know. I'm using my real psuedonym here like an idiot. But 4 times a day? If I knew that was the reason, ( no, we were madly, desperately, insanely in love for five years, but I thought we were getting married for a totally different reason.
In any case, you know me. My therapist--and I'll send an email to both of you to confirm--she'll have my "wishes" and I can get new blank HIPPA forms and fax it to you.
Sorry, LL (UrbanGal, she allows me to call her Kindle, which is such an appropriate nickname: She'll light a creative fire under your very soul, and so look at her blog. I have ltd. time sitting, and I've been wanting to reach you. Thanks for your email; it will make it easier. But I think I did get all your messages. In fact, I have a post on creativity, solitude, and self-entertainment that I hope I can put up tonight. I'm pulling down and deleting the video and article on Homeland Security that gives you a SPECIAL TRACKING COOKIE: HHS IS HARASSING ANYONE INVOLVED WITH BRADLEY MANNING'S LEGAL TEAM/ACTIVISTS WITH THESE COOKIES. Blog Catalog didn't post it, and either it's an error, or someone looked at it: I put a clear warning in big letters. The ACLU has the tracking cookie b/c it's on their page, but you have to watch the video on my blog: just coming to my blog is ok.
In any case, we all see that we are not posting monsters. I'll explain why I set this up at another time, but both of us would like you, Kindle, to have admin priveleges so you can post and delete what you like. It's not like 'ten posts a month or you are out!'; just look at the dates. UrbanGal is posting photos of her kids, but those kids are grown, so discretion: will have to explain elsewhere, b/c UrbanGal is a fraidy cat. She doesn't even want to talk in third person of things we used to do; I THINK that when they have kids, oh that's right, one of them does!!! They willl APPRECIATE IT. But I'll work on you later, UrbanGal.
Kindle, no rush, but after your road trip, if you want to post photos. I'll put up the necessary safeguards, and you can pick a different name here. No one steals from us; UrbanGal has her AK-47, and I have my beloved Ruger 44. Seriously, we can decide to close it to others. We can close areas that we don't want others to see.
Kindle, you missed our pervert! I'll explain in a later post. In any case, I'm not getting much work done, my browser doesn't have my userdata yet (new machine,) and I'm starting to drug myself, because my love is a Banshee 23/7 and it's hard to take, esp. when he's so damn good to me!
Later, Ladies....and Kindle, I will find that animal, if it isn't a star-nosed mole!

Think about this:

In O Magazine, under Donna Brazile's "the donna files", she writes of a conversation she had with Wilma Mankiller, once, Principal Chief of the Cherokee nation. She told her how when there is a storm coming, cows run away from the storm while the buffalo runs toward it and gets over it quicker. Now when Ms. Brazile is confronted with a difficult situation, she becomes the buffalo. After reading this, Ive decided that next time I'm asked what animal best describes me, I'll no longer say the horse. I've been living as the buffalo.

Woman is an Author and She Doesn't Know It!

Right now, this is a team blog, consisting of one of the authors, who is set up as a follower.  For a blog, it's much easier to set yourself up as your own follower.  That way, all posts and comments can go directly to your mail.

However, the follower has to make that distinction in the settings. And so, the Chinese Proverb demands: "Author, follow thyself!"

Call me and we can do it together.  Since I don't get holidays, I forgot you had this entire week. Let's catch up, ok?  You don't want to meet your maker without following Famous Chinese Proverb!

I thought it was only recent visitors, but you got google friend connect already.  Just left that note there, but it can be on the side, different background color, and sketching, or a row of what ever. Will try tomorrow to fix it.

See you can do this all by yourself. You did GREAT. Sweet tides, l
