Festive holidays always seem to make me thankful.

I spend my time thinking of the excitement of holidays when I was a child in the 1950s. Spending time at both grandmothers’ houses one after the other, morning maternal, afternoon paternal, ensured an never ending array of attention and presents. I was all for that. Still am.

Here’s hoping you enjoy all of the spring time
festivities that are dear to your family.

It’s so wonderful that people feel comfortable expressing themselves nowadays, being true to their heritage and family backgrounds. My mother’s family were pure German, but were never comfortable being who they were. Any smidgen of German tradition was not recognized as they did not want to be thought of as “foreign.” So, when I found Volker Kraft and his 10,000 egg Easter Egg Tree, I was happy to see what, in a more accepting place and time, I could have been enjoying all these years: blowing thousands of yolks out of thousands of eggs, decorating the shells and hanging them in the front yard. Why, it boggles the mind.

Volker Kraft has an Easter Egg Tree that people travel to see.

As if that’s not enough, 10,000 eggs on a tree for all to see, Volker Kraft also has a web site. His family web site will mean all the more if you understand German, but there are English and other language translation buttons at the bottom of the screen.

I just love the Kraft family web site and go to it every year to see what’s new. It’s like a play area for adults. Lots of fun! Why, I think I’ll give a link to you and all the BlogHer peeps.

You know, the Peeps. All those peeple who come to BlogHer, read, Comment and Follow the magnificent posts from the thousands of BlogHer contributors. Peeps with their Comments make the BlogHer world go ’round.

BlogHer Peeps come in all shapes and sizes, ages
and heritages, but a common thread between them
is, “If you want a friend, you have to be one.”  

“If you want a friend, you have to be one.” At least, that’s what they used to tell us in Girl Scouts. And, it seems to work on BlogHer as well. The more you give, the more you get.

Every now and then I see a Comment or Chatter with BlogHers boo-hoo-hooin’ about the fact nobody is coming to their postings or blogs to read them. They are sad because they think no one is reading their thoughts and yet, they just sit there and wait. And wait. And wait.

No! Don’t do it! If this sounds like you, get out of your BlogHer corner and start Commenting on other peeple’s posts.

That’s how you get out and about, to see and be seen. Did you know that every time you Comment, your avatar and the location of you Comment, goes down on the right hand side, under the category, “Recent Comments?” That makes it easy for people to FIND YOU. And, what you think. And, what you like. So, they can feel close to you and start to become your virtual friend.

In other words, become a Peep! Make a point to Follow other Bloghers, love and support them and they, in turn will become a Peep of yours. It’s so easy! It’s so much fun!

Remember, Peeps make the BlogHer world go around.

I LOVE peeps!

Nothing bettern than Chocolate Ganche Cake

Once upon a time, in upstate New York, there lived a fairy princess named Laine or Lainey, as the people of BlogHer Castle sometimes liked to say. Lainey was very beautiful, was married to a handsome prince and had children that were known to drive her nuts over a cabin feverish long winter as only upstate New Yorkers can have.

And many happy returns!

As Laine can tell you, even fairy princesses have dreams. Laine dreamed of being a big, bad roller derby Queen and turning in her sparkling pink fairy dusted ball gown for a roller derby persona named Crazy Eyeris. As Crazy Eyeris, Laine didn’t have problems with anything, least of all the weather, so she and her husband and kids lived happily ever after. THE END.
