P.S. Check the top right on my sidebar!!!! I've only been on Blogger since January 1, 2009 (103 days)---and I have had over 10,000 visitors to my site. I remember when I was on another blogging site, there were many days that I'd only get one or two comments... WOW---Blogger is incredible!!! Thanks to all of you who visit me day in and day out... Please take one of my awards and put it on your sidebar from ME. I love you!!!

I was so happy when you switched to blogger as it was easier to read and comment.

Love the comment about losing weight without diet or exercise. I am right there with you.

Darla said...

Interesting stuff here Betsy! Hope your Easter was GREAT!

Femin Susan said...

Jane said...

Good morning Betsy! Great post as always. Hope your Monday is swell....


Arkansas Patti said...

Interesting and cool answers. Could relate to the cabin on a mountain top and the end of tornado season. Congrats on the 10,000 visitors. Did you give a prize to #ten thousand?

Michele said...

It's so great to learn so much more about our blogger friends and I consider you to be one of the best!
I wish I could meet the two of you in person!

Tina said...

Morning Betsy,

Hope you had a good weekend..we started the morning out at 27 degress today.. :( lost some of my spring flowers..but covered many..:)

ROSIDAH said...

Hi Betsy, I love tags and will try to take my time on this one here. Very interesting answers. I really love reading your thoughts wherever we meet online :). Hope you have a great day.

Shellmo said...

Betsy - this was fun to read about you!! Hope #7 in your first list comes true - meeting a blogger friend in person! :-) Hope its me!! Also, I'm going to pray that a log cabin on top of the mountain comes true! YOu know how I love those log cabins! wink, wink!
Hugs to you my friend,

Pigeon said...

I feel like I'm getting to really know you! I watch both House and 24, but mostly I love movies. I'm on netflix's 4 at a time plan.

NCmountainwoman said...

I love "The Closer" and I'm already having "Damages" withdrawal. Interesting facts about you Betsy. Nobody ever made me omelets!

Natalie said...

I was worried about you guys on Friday. I am glad you made it through the storms ok.

Smilingsal said...

So you going off again in May, huh? Wow, you guys do travel! Thanks for sharing.

Busy Bee Suz said...

I love your lists and the fact that you used: woke up and went to bed!!! You are too funny.
Hugs from Florida,

marmee said...

happy easter dear betsy,
hope you had a wonderful day...it sounds as if you did. some funny things you wish for...losing weight without dieting or exercise.

Small City Scenes said...

Well you have lots to do and lots to look foward to. good for you!!!

All my girls started in little local playdays or horse/pony games when they were 5 yrs old. I always said they rode before they were born. Od course then they grew up and off they went but Kylees mom has always been into horses. She has gamed, done penning and sorting (horse and cow stuff),Kylee too. But now Kylee is in High school Rodeo so the focus is on Kylee (for now). My oldest daughter lives on a huge ranch in eastern Washington where they do all the cattle work by horseback. Real cowboys or cowgirls.
I never competed in anything but loved to ride. MB

PS. Love 'The girl who loves waterfalls' pic. MB

Cicero Sings said...

Wow you get a lot of visitors. I've had 15,000 visitors in over two years ... but I've elected not to be on google search. But you are a very fun and cheerful lady!

I don't know how you manage to keep up with everyone!

karin said...

Hi Betsy! I love your blog and all your answers! You have such a warm and welcoming style of writing. Having been away for 10 days I have so much here at home to catch up on, including reading all those blog entries of my blog friends!It's off to work again tomorrow and April promises to be very busy there.

Oh, and our youngest grandson started walking on Easter - one day after we left! While we were there he was sure practicing a lot! We had a great time with family and getting to know some of their friends.

Big bear hug,

Diane said...

Thanks for the insight into your life, Betsy. Hope you have a pretty, sunny day with no storms.

Rose said...

That is amazing about the visitors...I have been on blogger since the beginning...May 30 and have only had 16,000, almost 17,000 visitors. I would love to know what makes the difference.

BTW, you and me both on losing weight without diet or exercise!

Anonymous said...

That IS a tag for sure! I'll pass on it this time, but maybe next time!

Clara....in TN said...

Hi Betsy, I'm glad I was one of those counted in your counter!

Wendy said...

Wow!! That's a lot of traffic!! Well, you deserve it. Your blog rocks!!
Hope you had a Happy and fun Easter!

The Incredible Woody said...

It's not blogger - it's you!! You are the reason for the traffic!!

Oops, posted that twice! Too impatient sometimes;)

Janie said...

I hope you get to do everything on your "looking forward to" list. I love blogger, too, mainly because it's so easy to use.

Anonymous said...

I love all the things you are looking forward to because you will share them with all of us!!! We had strong wind early this a.m. and have a mess in the driveway but no rain yet. Stay safe Betsy and have a good night.

Diane C. said...

I started posting on Blogger the same day as you, Jan 1, 2009. Looks like you had fun making your lists. You sure enjoy a variety of activities!

The Whites said...

Thanks for sharing some of your interests!

Have a great week!


Susie said...

Fun to read Betsy! I'm glad you changed over to blogger too!

Jen said...

Love you too Betsy -- you R Joyful!

ChrisC and JonJ said...

Love your blog!

Dianne said...

Oh, I love House too. Can you believe how they "killed off" one of the characters? Of course, that was the night I missed it but my husband told me about it since he watches it in MN.

We have a Sparrow nesting in our porch awning and one of the babies fell out and we tried to rescue it but no luck. How depressing!

Your EG Tour Guide said...

It was fun to learn more about you, Betsy!

Betty said...

I really liked your tagging thingy
Maybe I will do it tomorrow. I still haven't learned how to put things on the side bar except gadgets. I am glad you liked my poem.

Anonymous said...

You're a busy woman, Betsy. How do you find time to do all that?

Judy said...

I sure did enjoy reading your answers. I enjoy your blog and all your hiking pictures, waterfalls, flowers, birds, etc. Hope you had a great Easter.

Robert V. Sobczak said...

Funny thing about blogging: I don't know if it gives me more energy, or makes me more and more worn out. It's an extension of what I do ... but it's lots of work too. The one thing that bloggers have in common with each other is the blogging mindset. I'm not sure quite what that is, exactly ... I think that's what keeps up blogging!

Grammy said...

Hi Betsy, HEHEHe Glad its not me. I love your blog too.

Gena said...

Honey, you are just one of those people that everyone falls in love with.
You are genuine and true! You have a heart as big as gold and a personality like no other.
And, I haven't even met you yet, but I guarantee I'm right!

Cassie said...

I'm trying to figure out,with all you do,how do you have time to watch all those tv shows!! This was a fun post to read. Hope you had a great Resurrection Day yesterday.

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

So happy to find your blog. Thanks for stopping by mine.
Hope you will come back often and meet out miracle boy, Jack!

Leedra said...

NOT into the tag scene! As you noticed...(BTW, thanks for the notice) I can hardly keep up with what I am already doing. Glad to see Bones on your list of shows, even if it was listed last. Wendy (excuse me if I am repeating myself here) has a blog about the show Bones. It has had over 560,000 visits since she put a counter on it. I watch it when the season comes out on DVD. Jimmy tolerates it, but wishes I wouldn't watch the whole season in one weekend. :) Not really, but close to it.
