It’s been a very busy week for me and, as much as I enjoyed it, I am glad it’s over now. We hosted the Leukemia Cup Regatta at the marina for the tenth year in a row. I took my camera with me to work, but for the first time in a long time, I was not able to get away to shoot any pictures of the event. We were hosting a big fishing tournament at the same time this year. You know me, when there is something going on and I have my camera, I squeeze off a few shots. That I didn’t get any shots at all should tell you just how busy we really were
Other than a couple more fishing tournaments, that is just about the last big hoopla of this year’s season. We will settle into our winter routine in the coming weeks and I’ll have a lot more time to take pictures again.
It’s that time of year again here in J-Land, too!
The Vivi Awards will be held again this year thanks to the dedication and hard work of this year’s committee. To put this together and pull it off takes some very hard work and all of the committee members deserve more than just a pat on the back in my humble opinion. Thank you, to all who are
doing so much to make this happen again this year.
The Vivi Awards are a way of recognizing the excellence of our fellow journalists within the framework of AOL Journals. The huge benefit each year to all is the exposure we all get to new journals, that is journals we have not discovered and read before. There is so much talent here in J-Land and to be able to search through the recommended journals always turns up some great finds for me.
If you haven’t done so yet, please take the time to go to the Vivi Awards site and see all of the names that are being suggested this year. Just click on the above link. Go to these journals and have a read and be ready with your own opinions when the voting starts.
While I’m on the subject of new journals, I’ve been reading a couple lately that I only recently discovered. One is an AOL Journal and the other is not. The AOL Journal I refer to is “Comments On The Events Of My Life.” Bill has had an extraordinary life and shares with us stories and photos. He is a true American hero as he was one of the volunteers helping out at Ground Zero after the attacks of 9-11-2001. His background as a former New York City police officer and a New York City fireman gives him an insightful perspective. He just got a new digital camera and I am really looking forward to seeing him make that baby sing in upcoming posts. Click on the above link and check him out if you get a chance.
The second new journal I want to tell you about is written by a Lady named Nancie who works for AOL and is in charge of Community Experiences here. She has started a journal, “Hummingbird Mind,” in which she talks about becoming an Empty Nester and also updates us on new literary offerings as they appear on the scene. Give her journal a read if I’ve stirred your curiosity. You can find her by clicking on the above link. If you visit any of theseor other journals you have not read before, leave a comment so they will know you’ve been there. Even if you only say, “Hi!” all of us journal writers enjoy knowing someone has stopped by to scan our sites.
I’m off now to spend the rest of my day off experimenting with some sound and video equipment. Who knows, I may have some very interesting (or not) entries in the coming weeks if all goes well. Take care and I’ll see Ya next time!
