Only Do I Have a Fabulous Blog, But I'm Versatile To - I seriously don't know how to do this, but I sure do appreciate awards.  It's always encouraging when someone takes notice of my work here and sends me something in appreciation for that fact.  These days, I've been to busy to jump on this and get the thanks and such out there.  So...I will say thanks now. 

The first award is the  Fabulous Blog Ribbon.  I, unfortunately, am not able to name the kind blogger as her wonderful blog is no longer online.  I'm glad I did get to visit before the blog disappeared. Now, I'm not sure if blogging rules say I can do this, but I'm not one who always follows rules, so I'm doing it.  I had to dig around a little and find both the ribbon and the rules.  So without any more rambling, here we go....

  • Post the rules on your blog.
  • Name five of your most fabulous moments, either in real life or in the blogosphere.
  • Name five things you love.
  • Name five things you hate.
  • Pass the ribbon on to five other bloggers. (Leave them a comment to notify them of their win.)

Five Fabulous Moments: (in no particular order)

  • Getting out the army.
  • Going to europe.  (That was courtesy of the US Army)
  • Getting married.
  • The birth of my daughter.
  • Watching my daughter graduate school and bootcamp (navy).

Five Things I Love: (in no particular order)

  • Chocolate
  • Rainbows
  • Cats
  • Writing
  • Pizza

Five Things I Hate: (in no particular order)

  • Complaining people
  • Rude people
  • Liver
  • Wind
  • Being broke

And the award gets passed on to:
I think I am setting a trend here.  In fact, I know I am.  Take the award if you so desire and pass it on.  It takes me forever to choose and if I had to actually decide on a certain number of fabulous blogs to pass it on, nothing would ever happen. 

I also got the Versitle Blog award.  This wonderful blogger, I can name.  L.G. over at  Writing On The Edge was so kind in passing this award onto me, so go over and visit and give her some comment love. 

Here are the rules for this cool award:  I must list seven things about myself and pass this award on.  Again, grab this award and pass it on.  Maybe one of these days I'll learn how to do this the right away.  But for now, bask in the moment of getting an award.

Seven Things About Myself:

  1. I live in New Mexico.  
  2. I have one brother, two half brothers and a half sister.
  3. I have one adult daughter, who is in the military.
  4. I love to write and hope to see myself published one day.
  5. I work at a casino.
  6. I have two dogs.
  7. I've been married for 20 years as of this month.  (Wow...I just thought of that.)

Now...seize the moment and enjoy the fruit of your blogging labors.

How To Be Successful

How To Be Successful
How To Be Successful

How To Be Successful - An agency once created an ad for a Rolls Royce that said: “At 60mph, the loudest noise in the new Rolls Royce is the electric clock.”  When they ran the ad by a company executive he smiled and said, “I guess we’ve got to do something about that clock!”  Never stop trying to be better.

The moment you start believe you’re success enough or smart enough to rest on your butt, you’re in trouble.  You’ve set a ceiling on your potential. Success belongs to the one who’ll show up early, stay late, go the extra mile and keep asking, “Is there a better way?”

A young man once asked Henry Ford, “How can I make a name for myself and be successful?”  Ford replied, “Decide what you want then stick with it. Never deviate from your course no matter how long it takes or how rough the road, until you’ve accomplished your purpose.” Everybody wants what successful people have, they just don’t want to do what successful people do to get it. Successful people don’t quit.  No matter how many times they fall, they get back up and start over. It is said that many who fail are not really defeated. They just quit.  So, refuse to quit.
