Weekly Photo Challenge – From Every Angle

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “From Every Angle.”

Punxsutawney Phil Sowerby is a groundhog in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. On February 2 (Groundhog Day) of each year, the town of Punxsutawney celebrates the legendary groundhog with a festive atmosphere of music and food. During the ceremony, which begins well before the winter sunrise, Phil emerges from his temporary home on Gobbler’s Knob, located in a rural area about 2 miles (3.2 km) east of town. According to the tradition, if Phil sees his shadow and returns to his hole, he has predicted six more weeks of winter-like weather. If Phil does not see his shadow, he has predicted an “early spring.”[1] The date of Phil’s prognostication is known as Groundhog Day in the United States and Canada, and has been celebrated since 1887.

Evening in Magic Kingdom

Traveling Lady in Combat Boots

walt and mickeyI don’t know if you’ll believe
I met a Princess today
And was greeted in her castle
In a most royal way

Yes I met a real Princess
Who stooped to welcome me
And inside her royal castle
I met another three

There were towers that had banners
Stained glass windows in the wall
And the sparkling lights of magic
In the royal banquet hall

A fairy flew from somewhere
And she waved her magic wand
Then she blessed me with a smile
That became our special bond

My greatest wish was granted
And a star thats only mine
In that land of deep enchantment
Where the brightest wonders shine

I became a royal princess
At that magic coronation
And was gifted with enchantment
In a regal celebration

For a princess is a princess
When she is one in her heart
When becoming a true princess
Inner beauty’s where you…

“A dog is man’s best friend”

Annually celebrated on August 26, it is National Dog Day.  This day  encourages dog ownership of all breeds, mixed and pure, and embraces the opportunity for all dogs to live a happy, safe and “abuse-free life”.   Dogs give us companionship, they keep us safe and they aid those in need.  It is a goal, for many on National Dog Day, to find homes for all dogs in need of a loving family.  The goal of the National Dog Day foundation is to rescue 10,000 dogs each year.

National Dog Day, an “unofficial” national holiday, was founded in 2004 by pet lifestyle expert and author Colleen Paige.

Getaway to Frankenmuth, Michigan

Willkommen. In German it means welcome. An offer to come and join. There’s a place that’s all about being welcome. Welcome to family time. Welcome to playtime. Welcome to Christmas time all year long. Welcome to Frankenmuth. Michigan’s little Bavaria, where you find all the things that make time together so meaningful. It’s a place of horse-drawn carriages through covered bridges. Of big water parks and small-town strolls. A shopper’s dream with over 50,000 trims and gifts at Bronner’s CHRISTmas Wonderland. So when you need to simplify the agenda, stop by Frankenmuth where you’re always willkommen.

Here’s a Rabbit

Oh, here’s a fluffy rabbit
With two ears so very long
See him hop, hop, hop about
On legs so very strong.
He nibbles, nibbles carrots
For his dinner every day
And as soon as he has had enough
He hops, hops, hops away.

National Senior Citizens Day – August 21, 2015


Each year on August 21 there are various events and activities held, across the United States, in recognition of National Senior Citizens Day. This day was created  as a day to support, honor and show  appreciation to our seniors and to recognize their achievements and the contributions they make to our communities

“For all they have achieved throughout life and for all they continue to accomplish, we owe older citizens our thanks and a heartfelt salute. We can best demonstrate our gratitude and esteem by making sure that our communities are good places in which to mature and grow older — places in which older people can participate to the fullest and can find the encouragement, acceptance, assistance, and services they need to continue to lead lives of independence and dignity.”


To celebrate National Senior Citizens Day, spend time with the senior citizens that you know, which may be your parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, neighbors friends, and etc.   Let them know that they are special, appreciated and loved.  It may also be a good day to volunteer at a retirement home and share your smile with those who may not otherwise get a visitor today.

If you are a senior citizen, check for special discounts and promotions that may be offered at stores and restaurants in your area.

On August 19, 1988, President Ronald Reagan signed Proclamation 5847 declaring August 21 as National Senior Citizens Day.  In his Presidential Proclamation, he said:

Weekly Photo Challenge – Creepy

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Creepy.”

A few years ago my husband and I took a cruise out of Long Beach CA. and we stayed at the Queen Mary Hotel. And of course I had to take the ghost tour. I am not saying that it is haunted but it is really creepy. We stayed in a more modern room but my sister in law  and brother in law stayed in a room of the time period. The one picture is a picture of there bathroom.

Is he Queen Mary ship – haunted by ghosts, with rich of stories of patriotism and crimes from the history of one of the most famous Trans-Atlantic ocean liners of our world.

Clearly, the Queen Mary haunted ship history began once the city of Long Beach California decided to buy from Cunard this so special ship and to convert it into a floating hotel and museum. And about the new ship – follow this link for the RMS QM2 cruise ship itinerary and schedule with prices to compare.

Why is the RMS Queen Mary haunted?

The world’s most famous ship hotel has at least 49 reported passenger/crew deaths from the QM ship history, and the official statistics say this hotel is haunted by at least 130 ghosts/spirits. Since the ship was moored in Long Beach CA, several employees and quite a number of guests have experienced seeing ghostly creatures and hearing mysterious sounds. And, of course, the plausible explanation is these are the ghosts of people who have died on the ship.
