The rulz:"Each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed. At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog,"
1. I find these lists of factoids hard to do sometimes LOL
2. I think I am a good driver and knock on wood here have never been given a ticket ( other than a parking ticket) I have been driving for 28 years!
3. I am near sighted in one eye and far sighted in the other, so the doctor has said I have the best of both worlds. I found that reading Harry Potters last adventure I am finally getting older eyes and need to actually read with out my glasses on for a while because I asked the eye doc last time to make my glasses a little more to the mid range ( for the computer work I do)
4. I am a messy desk - but know where everything is kind of girl. I am messilly organized I think.
5. I have lately enjoyed getting pedicures so much I am considering making this a regular part of my beauty routine.
6. I rarely use soap on my face... I have cleansing routines don't get me wrong, I just don't use regular soap. I get told I have nice skin though.
7. I absolutley adore the art and books of author Susan Branch She is my Idol - she started her art later in life and still is enjoying it today- check her out.
8. I have another artist I enjoy looking at her work as well ! my Talented Aunt Sunny. NO wonder I want to be an artist when I grow up !

2. Pick the year you turned 18.
3. Get yourself nostalgic over the songs of the year.
4. Pick 5 songs and write something about how these songs affected you.
5. Pass it on to more friends.
Well I was 18 in 1982 so can I count the year leading up to it as well?? scince that was when I graduated high school and moved on the college these are from 1981
March 7 - March 20: I Love A Rainy Night Eddie Rabbitt
This song reminds me of my friend Sylvia and a friend of hers too, who drove a truck over the road -and was a good looking guy. The line about the windsheild wipers always brings them to mind.
March 21 - March 27: Keep On Loving You - REO Speedwagon
REO - helped me through college. there are very few songs that they have that I don't know so when ever I hear them it brings back great times at Linfeild for me.
August 1 - August 14: Jessie's Girl - Rick Springfield
oh who didn't love Noah Drake on General Hospital. and Rick is back these days making me nostalgic for the simpler life and times. My mom has been a gh fan for as long as I can remember. So this is associated with her for me.
October 17 - November 6: Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do) - Christopher Cross
Chris Cross - where did he go?? he had one or two albums and did some songs that I really liked, so I picked this one cause " sailing " didn't make it on the list!!! maybe i need to go find some of his stuff for my shuffle list.
and from 1982
March 20 - May 7: I Love Rock n' Roll - Joan Jett and the Blackhearts
What can I say this is as good of an anthem today as it was 25 years ago! I loved her kick ass attitude in this song, as well as bad reputation.

Thank you American Service men and Women for letting me live in a country that is free.
Where American is Baseball and Apple-pie and Mom.
from a site called info please - where you can read the entire document
The Declaration of Independence
On April 12, 1776, the legislature of North Carolina authorized its delegates to the Continental Congress to join with others in a declaration of separation from Great Britain; the first colony to instruct its delegates to take the actual initiative was Virginia on May 15. On June 7, 1776, Richard Henry Lee of Virginia offered a resolution to the Congress to the effect “that these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States. . . .” A committee consisting of Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Robert R. Livingston, and Roger Sherman was organized to “prepare a declaration to the effect of the said first resolution.” The Declaration of Independence was adopted on July 4, 1776. Most delegates signed the Declaration August 2, but George Wythe (Va.) signed August 27; Richard Henry Lee (Va.), Elbridge Gerry (Mass.), and Oliver Wolcott (Conn.) in September; Matthew Thornton (N.H.), not a delegate until September, in November; and Thomas McKean (Del.), although present on July 4, not until 1781 by special permission, having served in the army in the interim.

You’re a cushion-cut diamond! You’re sentimental, thoughtful, and attracted to things of lasting value, so it’s no surprise that the vintage-inspired cushion-cut sparkler is the most fitting reflection of your personality. An offshoot of the “old mine” style, the pillow-shaped diamond mirrors your love for old-fashioned ways. Additionally, its antique appeal combined with your throwback charm make this style set in stone.

that said you can look up the office here at PBS or you can start on the home pages here at CU **
This is what has been in the works for a while. I have been patiently waiting for this job, I took the exam for " general professional I" back in February and had a 1st interview at the beginning of March. Then was turned down on the initial go round of available jobs because I know French (and do not have a fluent Spanish speaking capabilities) :) . But the Manager in Charge was wonderful and wanted me to know how good I was and how they wanted me!!! so she asked if there were another position, or they could somehow get me on temp to hire would I consider those?? yes yes I said with enthusiasm. So fast forward to the beginning of May- I got a call from the Manager, wanting to know if I was still interested and available?? Yes Yes I said I am!! Well to make an even longer story of it.... they had two people retiring and then an open season and the end to their fiscal year.... well I had another interview this time with the director and another manager ( team Lead) , they called me that day for my Professional references and By Friday I had the Job offer by phone!!!!! So this morning I went in and made the offer official and signed and completed lots of paperwork , I am only a background check away from starting this JOB!!! so there you have it. Thanks for sticking with me this far.
