Bradt Vote on cover backdrop

IStock -- Picks and Pix

As you know, we're moving beyond mockup to real cover design.
  1. Which of the pix at THIS LINK would be your top choice for my cover photo background for my book?

  2. Or...can you find another one you like that you think I might use?

  3. Look at the other pix on IStock...if you have ones of ANYTHING that are even half as good, then think about submitting them! Think Passive Income! :)

Citizen Bradt

I was google-mapping out a location in Hamilton and thought about dad moving back to Fairfield. One word came to mind.....
I'm sure it's just obscured by the 2 guys in front.

Judy to be honoured in October...

Prize-Winning ... details

The annual awards program honors outstanding women and minority business owners in the mid-Atlantic region (Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and the District of Columbia).

The MBE 100 dinner is October 21st -- Winners' list is HERE.

I just found out yesterday -- phone message while I was at yoga -- so that's all I know...oh, and that 5000 companies were nominated, so this is pretty keen.

Nice way to start out being 51! I was going to post a facebook composition on "Gratitude: the 51st State"... but spent a day on hold with tech support at Epson (had to buy new printer), CapitalOne bank and Intuit ...

Hope it was another great one for you, with many more.
Thinking of you today, as I was 51 years ago, but more so.
Love and hugs always.........Mom

Another Year, Another First for Simon and Chloe

Simon and Chloe started their first day at their new school/garderie.

Simon was very excited about it. A little hesitant when he got to the door but he got over it and seemed to be settling in nicely. Chloe jumped in with both feet and was doing fine.

first day in the third grade

WE already know it will be a grade 2-3 split
and we know the teacher is a new to this school (followed the principal from st. Anne's) Mrs. Forcythe, and her pal Sara is in her class for the 5th year running, who's also her seat mate on the bus this year.
things are looking okey.
so Fiona's off to Grade 3 today!
with 2 teeth missing - she calls herself a hockey player

MORE additions

This time it's a new mattress and box spring for us and a chain saw!
not that they came together in an offer from the BRICK
but both were on the acquisition list.
hope we sleep well in a new feeling of a bed tonight.
enjoy the weekend wherever you are and whatever you are doing!

love from the farm

new additions to the family!

Meet our newest puppies!
Annie and Bella
born may 1
check the link to lean about the breed. the akbash is another strong breed but these were ... well available!
they'll live in the barn and hang out with the flock.
so far, introducing them to the animals has worked out well
we walked the perimeter with them and they did well.
now they are alone till dad gets home from work and then he'll meet them
more as it happens!
