|BABY UPDATE! My newest great grandson, Colin, |
with his mommy, my oldest granddaughter, Amanda.
What's different about this blog group is that I actually got PAID to write some of these blogs (from a blogging site to which I've been a member for probably two years – NOW they're contacting me to blog for them. I guess I needed to build up a readership, so thank you for being part of that readership).
Please check out the articles and blogs below. If any of them interest you, please click the links and read. If you would prefer to go to the blog headings (listed in red), just click them and scroll down. But if you would prefer to read them individually, the links provided below will take you to the actual blog or article. Some titles are self-explanatory.
