It's Ellen-eve Once Again!!

Yes folks, Ellen-eve is upon us. The cool summer evening just before my birthday. A time for reflection and gratitude. Also a time for resolutions for the new year.

Well, I did realize a few big resolutions. I left my job for a more peaceful and low key environment. With the economic downturn, it is difficult to find any college/university that is experiencing peace and tranquility but where I'm at is pretty good overall.

I moved to Strawberry Fields and into a real life apartment...which we continue to acclimate to. Ben still has his mattress in our room. His bedroom is just too darn far away for his liking.

Now I have to sit down and figure out what my hopes, wishes and dreams are for the approaching year.

I have decided however that this year's theme is:


More to come. And I wish all of you a wonderful Ellen-eve, filled with good health and happiness!!

So since I'm reading this on Friday, it's your birthday! In honor of the day, I've written a little song, to be sung to the tune of "Happy Birthday":

Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to you.
Happy birthday, dear evi,
Happy birthday to you.

I am so slow :-).

A belated happy birthday. Hope that it was a good one and best wishes for the next year.

Happy Belated Birthday!

Looking forward to hearing more about Sacajawea, as I study American Indian history.
