I wonder what this cat did?
I wonder what this cat did?
Friday evening my daughter told me “I had a lumpy letter with lots of stamps…”
I had no idea what she was talking about, but promised her I’d take a look as soon as I was finished cleaning.
As soon as I walked towards the package I knew who it was from, Suituapui’s! He lives in Malaysia!
If you haven’t strolled over to Suituapui’s virtual planet, you’re really missing out. He has a very active community and he keeps his readers entertained with all the delicious foods and the entertaining stories that accompany them.
My daughter and I loved the items that were included. Thank you, Suituapui! I’m going to laminate the poems so they can be “bookmarks.” My daughter and I read a lot, and this way we’ll always have something to remind us of our Malaysian blogging pal. My daughter saw the turtle magnet and promptly claimed it for her own. She loves turtles. She’s already added the postcard to her scrapbook.
When I first heard that suituapui lived in Sibu I instantly thought of the Song of the Cebu. I was pronouncing “Sibu” as “Cebu”. When my daughter was younger it was one of her favorite Veggie Tales songs.
Thanks so much suituapui, for the lovely items, you added a bright spark to my already sparkling day!

Celebrate Life has been offline for the past few days (not intentional) as I switched hosting providers. In hindsight, I would have done a few things differently…
While my site was offline, I did respond to chat with Jennifer’s email about why my site was offline. Because of my hectic schedule, I haven’t done any blog visits, but I did communicate with Jennifer via email.
This is a first for me, since once I host a site with a provider it usually stays there. There’s only been one other time when I’ve switched, and that was when I hosted my first blog. That was in 2002. The service was awful, and two weeks later I moved my site to LunarPages.
I’ve been active online with various hosting providers for over ten years. If I really think about it, it’s been a bit longer since I’ve been active since 1995. Anyone remember GeoCities? That’s when I first started being active online. I purchased my own website hosting packages a few years later.
Regarding migration, I wasn’t really worried about having my files migrated to their new hosting provider service. After all, I regularly make full backs of Celebrate Life. It’s a smart thing to do.
I can’t claim that I moved this site to its new server home… my new hosting provider did. When I have more time, I’ll write about my first impressions of my new hosting provider and the extra benefits I’m now receiving for this hosting package.
Last year my daughter and I were able to attend one of Maryland Ravens game. They used to be called the Baltimore Ravens, and although they’ve been around much longer than the professional football team (40 years if I remember correctly) the Baltimore Ravens they still had to change their name… they chose the Maryland Ravens.
The Maryland Ravens are a great group of people that can’t use their legs but still manage to participate in a sport they love, and they do it so well. I’m on their mailing list so I still receive updates. I’m so proud to hear that currently they’re ranked #1!
I also love their motto … Ability Despite Disability. I personally know a few able bodied folks that really should apply that motto into their own lives.
A few months ago, I stumbled upon this cartoon. It made me laugh.
I’ve seen my share of people interacting in various discussions where they simply have to be ‘right’ on whatever issue is being discussed. I shake my head and think to myself… You both made your point… just let it go. But no… you’ll have the same folks going round and round on the same issue, determined to have the last virtual word. A bit silly if you ask me.
I’m not sure what drove me to post this now. I haven’t stumbled upon any online train-wrecks in a while, and when I do encounter them, I go out of my way to avoid them. I dislike that type of foolishness. Then again I’m not active on any ‘drama filled’ forums/sites. The sites I do visit tend to be drama free, so that might explain why I don’t see this behavior often?
Calvin always makes me smile.
A bit of a narcissist, isn’t he? Keep living in that bubble, buddy!
There are areas which I can improve… and I actively work on making improvements.
I don’t make New Years resolutions. I’ve always found them to be a bit silly. Why should I wait to make improvements? Nope, I make short and long term goals throughout year.
Happy New Year Everyone!
