Friday Finds

Myspace Friday Graphics


Mmm, real German chocolate and The Pasta Detectives. Alison Stevens at Wistful Wanderings is having a contest that ends on September 1. Go ahead, you know you want that chocolate to support a fellow blogger!

Save the Words is a fun site shared by Anastasia at Lobotomy of a Writer. I adopted four words which are included in this sentence: My grandma, the airgonaut, was barred from the ten-cent store by its pugnastic proprietor who took exception to her graocracy. Haha. Go adopt your own words and save the English language.

Today is the last day to enter Christine H.'s (The Writer's Hole) 100 follower contest. Click on over.

John Smith is doing his Follow Friday. Click on over and follow him, he'll follow you back. If you're not already, that is.

Don't forget to click over to Dawn Embers' blog to read the Word Paint Blogfest entries.

And, OMG, you HAVE to click over and read Postman's post today and listen to Beethovan's Fourth. I had tears streaming down my cheeks. Literally. I urged him to enter it in Dawn's blogfest. I hope he does.

And, last, but not least, Chuck Sambuchino shared that WritersMarket.com now has great rates on a one or two-year subscription. Hurry, the offer ends on August 31st.

Okay, my morning is gone so that's all angels!

I hope you have fun with these, Olivia J. Herrell

P.S. I'm leaving for Jimmy Buffet Land (Florida) in the morning. I'm taking ye old laptop but won't know the internet 411 till I get to New Smyrna Beach. Enjoy the weekend!

Awww, thank you for the link love! I'm off to check those out. I'll see about that contest over at Dawn Embers's place. I've been told I paint rather well with words...glad there's someone else who thinks so. I appreciate the encouragement immensely, friend. Have a blast at the beach.


Ahhh, Jimmy Buffett...

Raquel, my friend Postman entered late. Run back by there and read his entry if you get a chance! And thanks!

Terry, don't know if I'll make it through St. Augustine but I'll be close. I'll wave, too! I'm praying for beautiful weather and that Danielle swings north and misses us!

John, you're welcome!

Words Crafter, you are so welcome and thank you!

Jules, I will, I will, I will! :)

Postman, my pleasure! I'm so glad you decided to enter. You are a splendiforous word painter. (Hope I spelled that right, I don't have time to look it up! :) I didn't sleep much last night, kept waking up with Jimmy Buffet in my head! :)

Lee, you are welcome my friend and thank you!

And now, I'm buttoning up my laptop and heading for the beach! Have a great weekend and week!
