1st Blog Post

Well, what can I say, but I finally got my act together:

I would like to dedicate this 1st blog post to Sue H. who gave me (unknowingly) the final push to get started with a blog.

About a week ago I won her "What did Sue eat at the Fair?" contest and yesterday I received a beautiful package with a Gypsy Rose layer cake and an Underground Railroad card - how cool is that?

I may have guessed her "Fair Eating Choices" correctly, but she must know me as well and just picked the perfect card. Underground Rail Road information is always interesting for me. Since I didn't grow up in this great country of yours there is always more to learn for me in all aspects of American life, past and present!

So here is my thank you to Sue and I hope there will be many more posts to come. If I ever figure out how to add links I will do so, but bare with me as I get to know the blogging world.

Also please let me know (and I apologize in advance) if somehow I violate unwritten blog etiquette. Hey, you started one day as well and what can I say: it is a steep learning curve...

Have a great day!
