Best wishes for a wonderful Canada Day to our friends in the north today. Happy 4th of July and safe travels on the road to those of us in the US.

    I made the News! I knew if I kept at this blogging thing a major news service would pick up my story 😏

    Seriously, Judy. Thanks for the shout out. In keeping with the Editor’s ban on DIY on the 4th of July holiday, this week’s activity will be muted, but we’ll be back at it soon.

    I hope you have a great week!

    So, here I am, excitedly reading your news with a HUGE smile because I SO need a respite from the 24 hour political bickering, and then………!!!! I stumble on MY OWN site listed as an artsy place for grandparents to visit! Awwww….my smile got even “huge-er!” I’ve got a vet visit for Roxie in an hour, but I’m coming back here again and again during the week to check everybody out. It’ll be fun to match blogs to the names of your readers who’ve become familiar to me during my own faithful visits here. Smart, interesting, engaged people….all of them!
    And personally, I hope this one won’t be your “last” news report! 🙂 I think you’ll have more of them for us when the time is right!
    Happy 4th to you, dear friend!

    Many thanks for being included in your News report, and I always like recommendations for new blogs so thank you for your nice long list…(some I’m already following)…I spend more time looking at blogs than the news now…. real people leading interesting lives appeals to me more than news.

    Thank you, thank you! Not just for the honor but for the good laugh. I consider this a baptism of humor for the month of July, and that is good for us all. However, I think Judy’s News should be a regular feature, not just for its own merits but for the comments, which, I do believe, are even livelier than usual! I am so glad to have your list of recommendations; you can believe that I will be visiting them all! A very happy 4th to you too!

    Oh wow! What fun to make the morning news! And what a valuable list you have provided for everyone to peruse. I notice only one blog missing that should be at the very top of the list. Jack of ALL trades: New England Garden and Thread. 😊 Happy Fourth of July to you and yours!

    • 🙂 We were in your lovely town of Exeter, NH, last week to have lunch at Sea Dog Brewing. They sure have location, location sitting there on the water. The town was bustling and everything looked great. You do live in a truly idyllic New England town. 🙂

        Yes! Exeter is special and is bursting at the seams. Hope you found a convenient parking spot and didn’t have to walk too far. I think we need a parking garage. 😒

  11. You have a great week too. It’s going to be “that kind of month.” We’ll be away for a week too, so maybe sometime in August, everything will be back to normal.

    Oh my gosh, I’m honored! Thanks so much! 😛
    I really loved the first section, though, I LOLed!


  13. Nancy says:

    I am honored! What a treat to see I was mentioned here on in the NEWS!

    This just made my day! No… my week! Thank you so very much! I’m off to see all the others that made the news report! 😊

    Thank you my friend!

    Now this is the kind of news I can sink my teeth into!

    Thank you for the mention. “Women Power” – wow, I feel so honoured. This comes with huge responsibility 😉
    … and like Joey, I laughed through the first section. Good one!

    Enjoy your long weekend coming up. Ours was wonderful!

    That’s the news report to end all news reports (and, right now, an end to news reports sounds pretty darn good!) You must’ve had a lot of fun writing this. And I am honored to be in such fine company. You read a LOT of blogs–thanks for taking time for mine!

    • You definitely deserve a special place in blogland because I didn’t even mention the best toffee recipe around. 🙂 I love reading blogs that cover different topics, but I can’t keep up with those who post daily or multiple times per day. Those I skim until I find one post I that sounds interesting. There’s living on line and living in the moment, and I don’t want to miss any moments. 🙂


      • KerryCan says:

        I agree, totally, about the volume of posts and having to make choices about how many to read. I used to think that posting every day was what I wanted. Then I realized I don’t want it and I don’t think readers want it either!

    What a pleasant surprise to be in the news and in such good company, it is much appreciated. I could use more of the technical too…even more so now with the changes that keep occurring at WordPress. 🙂

    I was depressed this morning reading the news about the massive budget cuts in my former home of Alaska. Your news, on the other hand, perked me right up and made me laugh. Thank you for brightening my day. I’m delighted to be included in your blog list and am looking forward to making new blog connections with some of the others. Happy 4th!

  25. I’ve been buried under a pile of visitors (well, not literally), and now, piles of laundry, so I missed this fabulous list of bloggers. Many I follow and many to check out. Thanks so much for the mention of my blog… “Retiring with pizzazz” – I will always strive to live up to this description! I hope you had a wonderful holiday!

    I have now visited every one of the bloggers you listed, and I am in awe. So much talent! The blogs are very sophisticated and really a pleasure to see and read. I started out trying to leave a comment on each one, but there were problems so I gave that up and just read and enjoyed. Thank you so much for including me and for telling all of us about each other. I tend to think that this world of talented and thoughtful bloggers is preferable to the real world and then I remind myself that this talent and thought IS the real world. It just doesn’t get the headlines.
