Rising Ra

I am a morning person. A very early morning person, in fact. Having the opportunity to watch the sun rise is a gift in everyone's life. There is something magical in watching the day begin with the sun shining brightly in the sky. The sun beaming through the window and bouncing on my face, it symbolizes the beginning of a beautiful day and makes me feel alive. I wish everyone could feel the same as I do. I feel great and I look forward to the days getting longer and longer. I am babbling. Being happy will do that to you. :)

Lindy in the Mall - Malldate 39601

I attended my first Lindy in the Mall of the Christmas season. I had a wonderful time even though things didn't go as planned.

Lindy in the Mall got off to a slow start. Security moved the dancing area from in front of JC Penneys to be in front of the Barnes and Noble Bookstore near the food court. So dancing didn't get started until about 1:30 pm. There were four of us to begin with; Andy, Cliff, Nate and me. Needless to say, I had plenty of dance partners all to my self.

Do you want to dance? Sure!

My turn to dance with Nate, again.

Soon were we joined by the tall Matt Johnson, Kevin and Michael.

Linda, do you want to dance? I don't know. Kevin, do you want to dance?

Okay, let's dance.

Finding a dance partner wasn't hard. In fact, I was dancing so much I had to take a break. Then, to save the day, Sarah, Becky and Crystal showed up! Woohoo!

Look at Andy and Becky go!

Sarah and Matt, having a great time.

Crystal and Michael taking a break.

On Saturday, Ruth and I had a personal dance lesson with Nate. We decided to learn the Shimsham. Ruth knew most of the steps, but agreed that should she would like to learn them again. We practiced the dance for an hour and half. I finally felt like I knew what I was doing. Thank you, Nate. You are a wonderful dance instuctor.

Look Ruth, I am doing the Shimsham!

I had a great time dancing in the mall. Thanks to all of the guys who had to dance with me.

Men in Trees

OMG! I am so incredibly hooked on this show! Alaska and men! And you know what else lives in Alaska, Penguins!

Thursday nights just got better. Grey's Anatomy and Men in Trees. Two of the best television shows on the same night, back to back. How ever will I be able to sleep after watching all of this?



Programming language...SQL

SQL. What a wonderful language. Especially for me since I write crystal reports for a living and the majority of databases that I get to connect to are SQL. Commands are a very efficient way of writing a report, accessing only the tables and fields that you need. Interesting concept. I like it. I wrote my first SQL command today and it worked! Woohoo!

Loving what I do!....:0)


Swingin' a Star at Club Nico



Had a great time!

Enough said.



Thanks to Beckstaordinary, I added a link to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The website has live web cams so you can see what is going any time of the day. Today, I got to watch the penguins getting breakfast. They are so cute! There must of been at least 10 of them, all running around in this little area with two people feeding them. Isn't technology wonderful!

Thanks Beckstraordinary for this wonderful link.


A time to remember....

PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii - With their number quickly dwindling, survivors of Pearl Harbor will gather Thursday one last time to honor those killed by the Japanese 65 years ago, and to mark a day that lives in infamy.

This will be their last visit to this watery grave to share stories, exchange smiles, find peace and salute their fallen friends. This, they say, will be their final farewell.

"This will be one to remember," said Mal Middlesworth, president of the Pearl Harbor Survivors Association. "It's going to be something that we'll cherish forever."

The survivors have met here every five years for four decades, but they're now in their 80s or 90s and are not counting on a 70th reunion. They have made every effort to report for one final roll call.

"We're like the dodo bird. We're almost extinct," said Middlesworth, now an 83-year-old retiree from Upland, Calif., but then — on Dec. 7, 1941 — an 18-year-old Marine on the USS San Francisco.

Nearly 500 survivors from across the nation were expected to make the trip to Hawaii, bringing with them 1,300 family members, numerous wheelchairs and too many haunting memories.

Memories of a shocking, two-hour aerial raid that destroyed or heavily damaged 21 ships and 320 aircraft, that killed 2,390 people and wounded 1,178 others, that plunged the United States into World War II and set in motion the events that led to atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

"I suspect not many people have thought about this, but we're witnessing history," said Daniel Martinez, chief historian at the USS Arizona Memorial. "We are seeing the passing of a generation."


To all the men and women who served, "Thank you" just doesn't seem enough.
