Joel Osteen - Every Day A Friday
Today I turn 53 years old, and I have a lot on my plate.
I have a new update on my medical situation, a direct follow-up to what I discussed after the appointments last week.
I have 3 appointments, over the next 2 days, at Ben Taub Hospital:
Tomorrow morning I have a blood test, then cat scans.
On Thursday I have an MRI.
This is all happening a lot quicker than I expected which has to be a good sign.
I celebrated my birthday, today, with a Buffalo Burger and fries in a small, lunchtime hours only, diner downtown, a block from the Houston Chronicle HQ. The place is only open from 1030am to 2pm, and was packed when I arrived around 1230.
As an early birthday present I've taken on 2 new creative challenges.
First of all I have started a new Facebook group, with my friend Amanda Socci (http://www.creativeideagal.com/) as co-administrator.
I call it "Social Media For Critter Bloggers".
The mission of this group is to educate, inform, and encourage pet bloggers to learn about the mysteries of social media. It’s great to learn what’s out there and how to use social media to attract readers, connect with fellow pet bloggers, businesses and others, improve one’s writing and website, and even find writing opportunities beyond one’s blog.
I then began a blog, my first one on the WordPress platform.
I call it "SMFCB: A 365 Day Project - A pet blogger explores the mysteries of social media one day at a time".
I see the mission of this blog as one of sharing my experiences, thoughts and observations about the mysteries of social media.
The blog = http://smfcba365dayproject.wordpress.com/
I know, I must be crazy! Trust me, there's a method to this madness, hee, hee!
I'll end this post by telling about the above photo.
It's not photo-shopped!
There is a World Market store on Richmond, here in Houston. This quote can be found on the wall, in a hallway, opposite the public restrooms, which is where I took this photo, last evening.
