I want to change the title of my journal. I really, really want to change it! I have been wanting to change it for months now. When I started my journal I thought I would be the only one reading it. When I signed up with AOL I saw this neat little link that let me start a journal. I pressed it and created a journal. I was new to the journalling world. I had NO idea that anyone would read it. I wrote a couple of entries thinking that it would be safe for only my eyes. Then one day I see at the bottom a comment from my daughter in Florida. I was wondering to myself, "How in the world did she find my journal???"; "How did she put a comment in there?" Silly me. Then I realized that anyone could find it if they wanted to. I started journal-hopping and the rest is history. Going back to what I wanted to talk about, the name of my journal, I don't like it because it isn't creative. It is boring. I want to change it. It was picked on the fly. What should I change it to? Any suggestions from anyone? I have a couple of ideas, but nothing is grabbing me. This builds up to this week's wordplay...
What is the title of your journal? Why did you choose it? What does it mean to you ?
Tell us all about it in the comments section or copy and paste this question and tell us about it in your journal and don't forget to come back and leave a URL to your entry in the comments section.
Kellen is starting his second Journal Tournament. I had so much fun playing his first one!! Go ahead and sign up and play!!! We need to support his hard work! He did a superb job in the first Tournament! Let's give him more players this go-around!! I know some of you are competitors out there! Please advertise this in your journal, too, if you can. Congratulations to Deb for winning the first Tournament!!
I talked to John and Krissy again last night. John's white blood count is 3.7!! They had to lower it to 0 for the transplant and it is already back up to 3.7!! Yay!! He had a blood test five days ago to see if he is engrafting. The results won't be back for up to 12 more days, but he is already showing signs of engrafting so we are hopeful! He sounded strong and like himself again when I was talking to him. I could "hear" laughter and joy in his voice. Krissy was sounding good, too. They sure miss home, though. Thanks for everyone's support and prayers. It is keeping them going!
I have done everything I can to get pictures to upload on my computer. I really want to resume "Up Close With Val". I got a new USB cord. It didn't upload the pictures. I re-installed the software. That didn't work. I gave my camera to someone with my USB cord and had them see if it worked on their computer. It did. So, I think it is a problem with my computer. Oh my. I am going to have to take pictures and go over to Krissy's computer and upload them and send them to myself. My software still works if I email the pictures to myself, so I will have to do that. Crazy.
I need to give you guys the answers to last week's "Wordplay". As a group all the questions were answered correctly except the last one. No one got the answer to the egg question. My Dad provided me with most of these riddles. He is a riddler. Thanks, Daddeeoo =) Here are the answers:
1. WWI was called "The Great War" until WWII came about. You have to have a WWII to have a WWI.
2. 30 B.C. was not called 30 B.C. at that time. B.C. means Before Christ. How did they know Christ would be born in 30 years?
3. A dog can run half way into the woods, then he is running out of the woods
4. There are 12 three cent stamps in a dozen.
5. There would be no egg. Peacocks don't lay eggs. Peahens do.
6. They were able to determine they were Adam and Eve because they had no belly buttons! Great job Mark!!
7. 2/3 an egg
One last thing, my counter re-set itself. Does anyone know how to fix it? I saw some complicated instructions. Is there an easier way does anyone know?
I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day yesterday. I did ;D!! I'm off to go take care of Krissy's kitty cat again. He is wonderfully loving. Have a good day, everyone! xox
