2. certainly like your web site however you have to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it very bothersome to inform the truth nevertheless I’ll definitely come back again.
I find it bothersome to follow sentences without capitalization and lack of proper punctuation. Zing! Take that Mr. car quote insurances.
3. I’m not typing out the whole quote on this one. I just wanted to point out one piece of the comment.
You managed to hit the nail upon the top…
Love it. This had to be a translation because most of us know this phrase as “hit the nail on the head.”
That’s all for this week. Tune in next time for Fun with Spammers!
Hello! I know I’ve been away for awhile. What can I say, the first half of the year just seems so hectic that blogging takes a step to the side. I recently logged into WP and saw that my blog still shows signs of life, so I thought I should take a few minutes to post something and get up to date with my fellow bloggers. Continue reading →
Hard to believe it is already February. It has been a very busy month. For many of you in the U.S., this is a holiday weekend due to President’s Day. If you have some extra time on your hands due to the holiday, consider signing up for the Great Backyard Bird Count.
Sponsored by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, the Audubon Society and Bird Studies Canada, this event invites people worldwide to take 15 minutes to count birds from wherever they are. Whether you are in your backyard, at a park or just taking a stroll, consider entering your observations this weekend. This event helps scientists and bird enthusiasts track bird populations from across the globe.
It takes about 5 minutes to sign up for a free account. After that, you just sign back in and enter your checklist of birds. The site gives you a ready made list of possible birds in your area with links to information about the various bird species in your area to help make positive identifications on birds.
There’s no need to photograph your observations, but to post photos to accompany your observations, you’ll need to upload them to a site, such as your WordPress blog.
For example, this particular sighting of this raptor has me stumped, so I’m posting it here to upload with my checklist.
The count continues through tomorrow, 2/17/14, so there is still plenty of time to participate. Just visit http://gbbc.birdcount.org/ to get started.
Before I close the door on 2013, I wanted to leave a few thoughts about the past year on WP.
Personally, 2013 was a whole year of reflection and transition for me. Blogging wasn’t at the top of my priority list, but I still felt the need to keep the blog afloat. Hopefully my regular posts for the past month have partially made up for the irregular posting schedule. Continue reading →

Hello everyone! I still cannot believe that 2013 is almost over. I couldn’t let 2013 slip away without awarding a round of Spotlight Awards. Because I’ve been a fair-weather blogger this year, I haven’t spent much time on WordPress. When I did hop on, I mostly visited blog I already followed. Therefore, I turned over the nomination process to my audience.
I want to thank all of you who took time to send me a cool blog to check out. The blogs featured in this round of Spotlight Awards have very unique themes. I’m not sure if I would have come across these blogs on my own.
This week’s Weekly Photo Challenge from The Daily Post challenges us to post a photo where one thing is the focal point. Flipping through my library of photos, I found a picture where the focal point is hard to miss. While strolling through Heritage Parkin Downtown Phoenix last spring, I snapped a picture of this locomotive which is encased in glass.
This is only one of 75 steam locomotives built by the Davenport Locomotive Works (of Davenport Iowa). This locomotive, built in 1905, would routinely travel the Tombstone and Southern Railroads in Arizona.
Here is another fun spam comment. While the comment makes a discernible point, the topic has nothing to do with the blog post. Also, the comment only raises more questions.
Good post nevertheless We have a concern : death metal is certainly not strictly speaking heavy metal when you look at artists love immortal, Sewer and also Darkthrone it is very similar to rock-and-roll excellent
Huh? I have a few questions/ concerns regarding your comment dear spammer.
1. Who exactly is “we”?
2. Please learn to use punctuation.
3. From my recollections of heavy metal, is not death metal a sub-genre of heavy metal? If so, this factoid would negate your statement.
4. Based on what you may know of me from my blog, do you actually think I will take the time to look up any of these bands you mentioned to decide if your statement is indeed valid?
5. How is this relevant to the post Spotlight Nominations?
There is still time to nominate a blog to be featured in an upcoming post on NMNPHX. I will handout a round of Spotlights sometime after the Christmas holiday and I am welcoming suggestions from fellow bloggers. If there a blog that you feel is awesome and could use some attention, shoot me a message between now and Dec. 23rd in the form below or leave a comment.
