Earth Day 2018

On this Earth Day I’m setting the goal to be alive to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day in 2020! Of course, we never know when our time is up, but the way I roll, I want God to be sure to know this woman wants. I am feeling tremendously blessed to be alive, in my current state of health. I accept that I am not in the healthiest state I could be and my responsibility in taking appropriate actions to change that. Please note that if you should be dropping by today or tomorrow I am concentrating on changing it up to reflect my goals in being around to celebrate the 2020 Earth Day festivities with joyful exuberance. Thanks for checking in on me. 🙂

Watching Balloon Fiesta LIVE from

This is a big morning in my life! As the person who hand-coded the HTML pages for the first web presence for the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta back in 1994, nothing brings me greater joy than to be able to share this event with the world online and to be able to see it happening LIVE on the Internet is a dream come true! 



Unable to attend the event in person this year I was feeling pretty maudlin when I awoke this morning to phone notifications that today’s #BalloonFiesta activities had started. Because I had caught the first live stream from yesterday evening in time to watch the Balloon Glow, I decided to check right away today to see if they were able to get the live stream up. It was up and the announcers were already chatting away. I quickly snagged a screenshot and created an image to share with our Balloon Talk group members on Facebook
