MY 100TH POST!!!

Can you believe that it is my 100th post??  So I am having a giveaway.  Taste of Home 2009 Holiday Cookbook and Country Woman 2009 Christmas.  Leave me a comment if you want to be entered.  Put a link on your post for your name to be entered twice.  Have the person mention your name.  Good Luck!  I will draw the name next Friday morning.

On a sad note, I can't watch the news.  The pictures coming from the Gulf are sickening.  Where is Greenpeace, the WWF, Seaworld, PETA, and all of those so called animal people now????  There are animals dying on the shores and no one is helping to clean them up.  It is disgusting.  So if you have given money to these organizations over the years, how do you feel now?  They have the expertise and the equipment to save these animals.  They are doing nothing.  Dawn dishwashing liquid is giving there soap to anyone who will help.  It is the only thing that works.  Would you go and help?  I would in a minute.

I also think that we should be working on getting the spill stopped and the clean up going rather than start the lawsuits.  If we bankrupt BP, who will pay for everything??  Are we just going to add it to the debt we are already swimming in? 

God help us. 

Is this going to be a memory??


  1. I'd love to be entered in your giveaway. I will mention it on my blog for another entry. Thanks for the fun.

    I'll email you my thoughts on the other issue.

  2. Great! That's two for Parsley!!

  4. Please enter me in your giveaway. I would love to win.

  5. What gets me is that someone is standing there, filming these dying birds and they're doing NOTHING to help!! I could not just stand there and film a dying animal!! I would have to help it somehow. I mean, it's OUR fault that they're in trouble, so it's OUR responsibility to help. Every single one of us. It just makes me sick!!

  6. Amy, Congrats on your 100th post! Those are lovely books for the giveaway!
    I agree with you on the oil and animal issue.. all I am able to do is pray!

  7. BP won't let anyone start cleaning up the shore line and helping the animals is what I heard. It may not be true so take a grain of salt with it. Wish they would all get their act together and quit worrying about money and fix the issue at hand.

  8. Goodness! Did you not know PETA, Humane Society and the others are never anywhere to be found when the $$$ is going OUT?! They only come around when they WANT the money.
    Less than 10% of PETA's budget goes toward actually Helping animals; the rest goes toward salaries, office buildings, perks, benefits, etc.
    Nice, eh?

  9. Amy - I love, love, love your blog!! There are so many things I should be doing right now, but instead I'm reading all your posts.

    I just pray that all those involved in this oil spill turn to God. He has the answers, He knows what needs to be done, and He will protect those precious animals and the beautiful beaches.

  10. Love your blog Amy! I would like to be in your drawing. Thank you

  11. Hi Amy, I would be there in a minute to help if I could:( Someone stop filming these poor helpless creatures and reach out to HELP..Only God can take care of this because the humans in charge are idiots.

    on a happier note, I would love to be entered in your giveaway!


  12. I love cookbooks. Thanks for giving away 2. Congrats on 100 posts!

  13. Hi Amy,
    Awesome blog! I'd love to win one of your books...don't know if I'm eligible living in Canada, just over the border. Anyway, if not that's fine, too. I love the the peonie/rose? background you are using. I'm with you on the BP thing. It's absolutely terrible!

  14. Lovely page, such a fun giveaway, love christmas ideas! Congrats on your 100th post!

  15. Canada is fine. Not a problem.

    Welcome all you visitors to my blog. Glad to have your comments.

  16. Hi Amy, I'd love a chance to win on of the cookbooks.
    On a side note - I agree about the oil spill - where is everybody?...
    Let's stop it and clean up before we start pointing fingers. I believe there'll be plenty of blame to go around....
