Online Blog Party

It’s Party Time. Come Right In πŸ’ƒπŸ’•πŸŽΆπŸŒ­πŸΉπŸ»πŸπŸ°πŸ¦πŸΏπŸ“»

It’s almost unbelievable how fast time seems to fly by these days. Is it just me? Another month end blog party already.

I would like to thank my new blog friends and welcome them to our warm gathering.

You are most welcomeΒ do makeΒ yourself comfortable and other up something tall and cool to drink πŸ™‚

RefreshmentsΒ and favours are nicely arranged down the page. Feel free to indulge, these are zero calories πŸ˜‰

JustΒ some little party rules:

  1. You must mix and mingle with others. Don’t be a wallflower. Go say hello to someone and you can participate in the Tag a poem, a thought or quote below.
  2. Let us know where you are blogging from.
  3. Β Please leave your blog link or post link in the comment box below along with introductions.
  4. It’s one link per comment, but come back as often as you’d like, that way it’s easier to focus on a link at a time for others.
  5. Please reblog, spread the word of the party like butter, or like, share on Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, Facebook, etc. Tell your family, friends, Β blogging neighbours, even your blogging pets.
  6. Have fun, it’s a great way to find bloggers and have them find you.
  7. Please show some love. Reblog this post. It helps all of us! The more people that see and participate in it, the more potential new follows! So, share and share voraciously!

There we have it. Since all the rules have been clearly explained, have fun and make the most of it :-)

Thank you for coming to my party and supporting my blog. You rock.

We are Creating a Peace and Love Chain, so please add your little piece. Thank you.

I blog from Dubai and to the love and peace chain, I start with:

To Love is to be at Peace.

For tranquility, harmony, goodwill

understanding, and union

are benefits borne

from the active emotions of love.

Crack These Simple Riddles Below πŸ˜‰

  1. A horse is tied to a rope that’s five meters long. There’s a barn filled with hay 6 meters away, yet the horse can get up and eat the hay whenever he wants. How’s that possible?
  2. Arnold Schwarzenegger has a big one, Michael j fox has a small one, Madonna doesn’t have one, The Pope has one but he never uses it, Bill Clinton Has one and he uses it all the time!
    What is it?…

    Umm… where to start… Let me introduce myself: I’m Amruta, blogging from India.

    Answers to the puzzles:
    1. Maybe the horse’s rear leg is tied to the rope, so you know, he’s stretching towards the barn and eating the hay πŸ™‚
    2. Surname

  2. First of all, thank you Jacqueline for your hospitality. Everything looks wonderful! Sorry I haven’t been by for one of these in a while, I’ll try to do better!!!
    My name is michelle and I blog from Norton, Ohio (which is close to Akron.) My blog is about my wellness journey. I struggle mightily with food (OK, junk food!) so this is my way of trying to hold myself accountable. I know I’m not the only on this journey and I’d love to hear about yours as well! Stop by and give me a holler!

  3. Real nice party, Jackie. Thanks for inviting me!

    I blog from Layton, Utah, a noisy suburb of Salt Lake City because of the air force Base. It’s been extremely hot over here as we’re experiencing a heat wave and a dry spell for the past month. Yep, not a drop of rain in the month of July.

    You can find me at my blog, This is Another Story.

    I believe the answer to the first riddle is that the rope is tied around one of the horse’s hind legs and a horse is usually big and therefore, even when the horse is short one meter, it can still reach the hay no problem.
    The second riddle just cracks me up but I agree with previous comments, the answer is surname.

  9. Phew, made it! Wow, thought I was going to be late! I managed to pick up a bottle at the corner store – hope this one’s okay? I’ll just put it on that table…huh? oh, sorry, Mick, from yes, we’ve met before. hey! Lots of people here! That’s great! Ooh, I’ve not met you before…Hi, I’m Mick! Really? Pleased to meet you, too! Yeah, really, and the dog. No, he’s really cute, honest – just get him off my leg, could you? Thanks…oh, the riddles? first one – the horse is tied to one end but the other is loose, perhaps? The second? No idea…something rude, I suspect. I’ll just get a drink and circulate. Ooh, those look tasty! Did you make them?

  11. I barely made it! I have only thirty minutes use of this library computer, so I must make my party time short. Good to browse through the gang, however. Leaving my greetings with everyone. I sure I can survive without the food fare – I can, but I don’t like to! πŸ˜€

Great cheese and crackers … the champagne was gone by the time I got here, but the wine is wonderful. Great bunch of people, also!

Thanks again … I may pop in again tomorrow!

  14. Hi everyone! So nice to meet you! I’m stopping by from Arizona this month. Jacqueline, I must say you’ve got quite the setup! I’ll just make a little plate to indulge in as I mingle. Thank you for being such a generous hostess!

    I see there’s a love and peace chain so I thought kindness would be an appropriate link for the chain. Kindness comes from a place of love and makes the way for peace to follow. I’m sharing a link for the Facebook community I’m working to build that focuses on showcasing kindness. You can find the details here-

    It’s so nice to stop by, I’ll just grab a drink and take a look around ❀

  16. This is my first time at a party like this. I started my blog in Boston MA, but last year I moved to the SF Bay Area and now I blog from Silicon Valley. I studied how the brain develops, and I teach middle school biology part-time. I write about science fiction, geocaching, and nature photography.

    Thanks for having the party! It is fascinating to meet so many people from around the world.


    1. Hey Suzanne! I followed you over here from your post, so I’m one of those uninvited hanger-on-ers at the party. But I brought a fruitcake, because who doesn’t love fruitcake? I’m Johanna and I’m from the United States. I blog about my fiction writing, knitting, parenting, and random things that make me laugh. My blog is called Afthead and if you don’t know what an afthead is, well, you can learn here: Thanks for the awesome party Jacqueline. It was nice to meet you and your guests!

    My name is Donna, I’ve blogged for almost 3 years, here’s one from my archives that’s made me want to rewatch the movie,
    In my little corner of Canada we’ve had sun and now a lovely and needed rain.
    Thanks again for the delightful party, and hope everyone has a wonder-filled week ahead! πŸ™‚
