Hard to believe June and summer are right around the corner. As I write this blog on May 26, 2016 I am amazed by how rapidly half of this year seems to be passing. It feels like the turn of the century (2oth to 21st) happened just yesterday instead of fifteen years ago (in 2001). Hard to believe how much has changed since the 20th century, except for gas prices which this past winter (2015 – 2016) was similar to the 1980’s with this summer being more like 1990’s prices. Thank goodness for this gas price break, especially for my fellow Americans who need their car to get to and from work! There is much to be grateful for while I type this via my laptop…..
Keeping a promise, given since this blog began, to my readers who visit this blog site, today I updated it. There will be some surprises. The biggest is one less page for I removed the page listing what I have published (its content is now on my official author website Alicia Rose Shares). To further shock, I completely restructured, added new content and changed the title to the page formerly known as Sharing with you things I like or recommend to Sharing with you as a friend.
I look forward to receiving feedback regarding all changes accomplished. Maintaining and updating seasonally, annually or periodically one’s official blog and website is definitely a must! Someone recently sent me feedback informing me they had stopped visiting Alicia Rose at WordPress, because I did not add new content as often as they preferred. This made me realize, I needed to give my official author’s blog more tender loving care by checking all content and updating this site more often. My goal this year is to keep my official blog site as evergreen as is humanly possible. To all who send me feedback, I return with appreciation for without it, I might not have realized it was time to update as I have today.
To my fellow Americans in the USA: fabulous Memorial Day Weekend! For 2016, Memorial day is May 30th! Be safe while celebrating plus remembering to honor those who have fought and lost their lives for our country as well as those who still are active in the US Military. Do not forget to wish all Veterans you know a great big thank you too for many served under extreme extraordinary circumstances while the rest of us stayed safe at home throughout the USA.
This author is very thankful for those brave souls who currently serve for they are our heroes ensuring we are safe! Sincere gratitude to all who are and have been in the US Military (or their own country’s) for to serve one’s country with honor and dignity definitely makes every military personnel a hero!
Thank YOU for visiting, and may the rest of 2016 spring bring you joy plus prosperity!
