Game Playing......

Last night, October 29th, I did my first games on the site. It was a lot of fun and I think the people who did participate had a good time. We did the scavenger hunt and some word scrambles. Would like to do more of a variety next round but need a bit of input on what folks enjoy playing. I just picked last night as a trial game time. Will come up with a permanent night/nights when I figure out when everyone else is doing there's. I don't like to over run the others because I don't think that is good practice amongst the other websites that have worked just as hard to get their fan base. Anyway, just wanted to let everyone know that I did give it a whirl and had a good time. I will be doing it again soon so hang around and see what develops!!!

Liking and Disliking a Page just for a Prize.....

I know that we cannot control who likes a page and who doesn't but I just lost one off of my page and it got me to thinking that maybe I have done something wrong. We do giveaways that will interest our fans. Sometimes you don't win but to me that is no reason to dislike a page and if you read in the instructions it clearly states that you can't and shouldn't do this. I just don't think that it is right to do that to a person. Deep down it actually hurts when a person does this to us. We work so hard to try and bring to you what might interest you as well as keep you coming back to our page. If we do not have what you are looking for then maybe it would be nice to contact the owner of the page via the contact tab on the left and let them know why you are disliking their page so that they can take care of the problem and fix it for the next person that comes along to check out the page. Some of you may feel this is inappropriate but I just feel that it is something that everyone is afraid to say. I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings or lose anymore fans so I just ask that if you would like to see something else on my page or see something less than please let me know because I am here for you as well as myself. I love all of my fans/friends and it truly does hurt when I lose one!!!

Great Books on Sale.....

Good Morning Ya'll. Just got through posting a lot of good books on my Facebook page that are more than half price. Hope you will take a look at them and take advantage of some of them just as I did. I continue to grow my collection of books. Books can take you to many different places around the world and I guess that is one of the reasons I love to read so much. I especially love the Amish books if you haven't already noticed that.  I love their simple lives they live and how everyone just pitches in to help without even being asked or told. I wish my life were that simple at times. Anyway, I hope that you will enjoy these sales that I found and take advantage of them. Many thanks to all my fans. God Bless. Love and Butterfly Hugs to all :)

Breast Cancer Awareness Month....

As everyone knows October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month so in honor of this month I had my hair done today and had pink added to it to show my support 24/7. I am hoping that there will be a lot more people out there showing there support whether it be in your hair, around your neck or wrist, a shirt, pants, shoes or even a jacket. I would just like to see a lot of pink this month no matter where I go. I am a firm believer in trying to support or bring awareness to as many causes as I can. Make sure you get your mammograms done yearly and by all means if you feel something isn't right then have it checked out. Don't wait until your next appointment; make a special one right then and have it checked out. Early detection is the best thing in any case. I am posting a picture of my pink hair in support for Breast Cancer and keeping all you lovely ladies in my prayers. Love and Butterfly Hugs Always :)))
