It’s official, kids! Let’s celebrate!!!
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 36,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 8 Film Festivals
I know that a lot of you are wondering where I’ve been, and I thank you for the many emails I received and apologize for not replying to all of them. There were and are a few reasons for my long absence. My computer crapped out, and though my son built me a new one, I’ve so far been unable to retrieve all of my image files from the old hard drive. There’s also the matter of the tendonitis in my hand that continues to plague me.
Hello, my dear Raisinettes! I haven’t been kidnapped, just enjoying time with my crazy sister (yeah, I’m the normal one :P ). Just stopped by to wish you all a happy holiday. I miss you, and I’ll be back during the week. Mmmmwwwaaahhhhhhhhhh!!!!! ♥
Now behave yourselves, or Santa won’t bring you any presents.
In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on. ~Robert Frost
From Charles Wowkanech, president of the New Jersey state AFL-CIO at North Jersey.com:
ON LABOR DAY, we recognize the hard-working men and women who keep our nation running. Yet we must not forget the millions of people who have lost their jobs due to our unprecedented economic conditions.
Regardless of employment status, we all share a common goal to raise a family and provide a better future for our children. It is this aspiration that has built our country’s middle class and has instilled a sense of purpose for generations of American families.
However, something seems to have changed, and the promise of a job and a middle-class life is becoming harder and harder to come by in this country.
