It's My Blog Birthday!! I'm 4 !!!





Today my blog is 4 years old!!! WOW!! My first post wasn't interesting and yet 4 Lovely gals left me comments. For them I am Thankful!

Since then I have posted over 500 posts. I have "real" friends. I have LEARNED so MUCH from this community! I have "CHANGED"!!! I "Create" more! I've learned a "few" decorating ideas. LOL!!! I have "swapped" with you and have Lovely treasures! I have received "gifts", just "because"! I have laughed, cried and prayed for You! I have even met a couple of you! It's been an AWESOME 4 years.

THANK YOU!!!

So, I have a small "birthday" gift for one of you! A pretty strawberry apron, strawberry linen, "handmade" pin keep by ME, cherry notepad and I'll be "throwing" in a few more goodies.

No strings, no "telling others", just leave a comment and a name will be picked this week.
YOU ARE A BLESSING TO ME!!!

Warmly,

deb :)

Happy 4th Birthday! Mine will be 5 on July 4th...I was going to do a giveaway for my 4th, but fell off the edge of the blogging world for ever, it seemed. Don't know if I'm back or not...I just missed reading everyone else's blog. *e*

The garages of the top F1 teams have been moved to the middle of the pit lane for the British GP, so that fans will be able to see them.

An additional concern for RBR was that the last garage was so close to the white line marking the pit exit that
its drivers were not able to accelerate up to the speed limit before crossing it, which created a small disadvantage at each stop.
