Let’s Not Forget

Posted by gottabkd on Friday, November 11, 2011

Remembrance Day is….

Remembrance Day

Alway's remember

A day to think about all those individuals who have fought for our freedoms, especially here in the western world…

Freedoms that most people in other countries have yet to enjoy….

I often wonder what the children of today will remember about those individuals who continue to fight for our freedoms.

All I want to say is:

Let’s not forget… ever….what they have done for us….

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe;
to you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
(John McCrae)

I also want to say:

Poppy Canadian

Proud of the men and women that gave me this.

If you love your life…. thank a Veteran…. ~just saying

Till Next Time…..

Another Freebie for Canadians

Posted by gottabkd on Tuesday, February 2, 2010

ClearlyContacts.ca is giving away some free glasses, spectacles that is. You know the kind you look through not drink from.

Glasses As you can see, I need me a new pair as well  😉

Here’s the deal: 25,000 pairs of eyeglasses will be given away in this cross-country tour of Canada, approximately 500 pairs in each of the cities they go to, to the first 500 hundred people they email. This is an online site and your glasses will be chosen from the site.

Once you receive the email on the day they are in your city, you can go to the site and choose one pair of glasses for FREE!!!!!!
At the point of checkout, you need to provide the code from the email they send to you and they will ship your glasses to you.

Wow, how cool is that?

So go enter your info here and watch your email for date and code for your city.

Cheers,

Till next time

Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to youuuu,
Happy Birth-day dear Toronto,
Happy Birthday to youuuuuuu
!

Wow… 175 years young!
Not old in comparrison to the rest of the world but young just the same. Toronto is truly a young’en.

So the celebrations are on, with many things happening in and around Toronto. My advice, take in a few of them by seeing what’s going on on the city’s website.

Sorry for keeping it short, but I am completely internet challenged these days. I’ll be back soon enough with more goodies, I promise.

Till Next Time…..

Wow! 1 Million Hits!

Posted by gottabkd on Monday, December 29, 2008

I am not really a stat watcher, but I must say that stats are encouraging.
I remember when this blog hit it’s 1000 reader mark. I thought wow, 1000 people have actually visited this site, cool.

Then this blog hit it’s 10,000 reader mark and that’s when the stats became a little more important fun to watch. For no other reason than just marking the different milestones that happen while enjoying the awesome yet strange encouragement it gives a blogger.

Next came the one year anniversary milestone (which I completely missed) and then the 200 post milestone. Both these milestones were met under the impression that they may never be met. I really did not think I would be around this long, let alone enjoy this phenom called blogging. Yet somehow these milestones happened, just like they happen to every blogger, and the encouragement continued.

Now imagine this milestone: 1,000,000 visitors.

Can you?
Imagine your blog hitting this HUGE milestone? I hope to one day!

It really is a wonderful accomplishment when a blog reaches 1 million hits, doesn’t sell you a thing, is upbeat and humorous to boot.

Today, my Fraccy friend can actually celebrate this AMAZING milestone.

Congrats Fracas, may you see a million more!
Go check her out, she really is funny.

Till Next Time…..
