Blogging helps me share things with people. My goal is for you to see something that brings a smile to you.

Hi - I'm new to Blogging and this is my 1st attempt at it. WELCOME to my  humble ABODE.  Please bear with me until I get this stuff figured out. The reason I created this blog is because I was informed (very nicely I might add)  that it would be appropriate for me to have a blog in order to participate in the Accretionary Wedge, since it is a carnival of geology blogs. So here it is.

About me:  I LOVE to READ, I STRUGGLE with WRITING.  I'll be the first to admit I'm not the best at writing. I love reading the blogs in the geology blog world, and for the most part I'm very content just reading them.  I think you all do a great job.  But occasionally I do want to make a comment or add a bit of wisdom to some other blog. To follow the rules I am attempting to create this blog. Who knows if I get the hang of blogging I might even add some other bits of wisdom here and there on other things non geology related but I still care about. 

Right now I'm a stay at home mom, and have been out of the geology world for a long long time. I have a BS (78) and MS in geology (81) from Ohio U. Geology has always been a passion of mine.  And quite frankly I miss it.  That's why I was so thrilled to find the geology blogs sphere.  

I live in Louisiana, and by the shear fact that I live here, admit to being slightly crazy at times. The other thing that convinced me I maybe crazy was the fact that I went into geology. The one thing I observed at Cleveland State University (where I did some undergrad studying) and Ohio U was that in both places the Geology departments were in the same building as the psych departments, and not the chemistry, physics or biology buildings. The psych majors were always coming and getting us geology majors to do research on. I once asked 'why' and the researcher said it was because we were crazy and would do most things asked of us. Here I was thinking it was because we were conveniently located there next to them and they didn't have to go far to get us. Oh well, I may be slightly crazy but I consider myself harmless because I love people and would never intentionally hurt anyone and I love living in this world. The one thing about me is I do like to have fun. That's why I live in LA - it has the reputation of being one of the happiest places to live in the United States.  From what I can tell it is a well justified reputation to have.  
That's enough for now, since this is just my first attempt.

 (11-4-10) I'm now trying to see if I can add video to my blog.  I picked this one so you can see some of the crazy things I do.  Most of it is pretty fun stuff.  I'm only in one of the slides because I took a lot of these pictures.  It's kinda hard to be in the picture and take an action shot at the same time. Its on YouTube @ St. Lukes Youth UMC  Summer 09. Well lets see if it works.
