Google Search Results — This, That, and The Other

In the wake of last week’s brouhaha over the harvesting of WordPress bloggers’ post by the site, and the collective efforts taken by many of us to stop the unauthorized theft of our intellectual property, I’ve been checking that site several times a day to verify that it’s still “tentatively” down. And so far, […]

Wanting to escape the miserable British weather, Holly, a self employed web designer, decides to accept her mother’s invitation to stay at her villa on the Costa de la Cruz. Seated next to her on the plane is Nathan, an extreme sports enthusiast, embarking on a paragliding trip. Holly was intrigued by Nathan’s adventures and by the time they landed numbers had been exchanged and plans made to meet up.

When Nathan proposed, the decision to marry after knowing someone for such an incredibly short time was a gamble Holly was prepared to take, regardless of the fact she thought it odd Nathan didn’t want to tell his family beforehand. Moving to the family’s luxury log cabin holiday park in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales seemed perfect to Holly. The only drawback…

FOWC with Fandango — Orphan

This, That, and The Other

FOWCWelcome to August 6, 2019 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.

I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).

Today’s word is “orphan.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments.

The issue with pingbacks not showing up seems to have been resolved, but you might check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

And be sure to…

A Photo a Week Challenge: Timing is Everything

nancy merrill photography

Last weekend, we had a great family reunion at my brother’s home. My husband and I were in charge of lunch and afternoon games for Saturday. We took almost 600 water balloons with us (easy fill balloons are AMAZING!) and played a couple of games with them. This picture is from the tossing game. By this time, the lines were somewhere between forty and fifty yards apart. I was out of the game, so I started taking pictures of the catches. I was really hoping for one like this. Unlike last week’s challenge, where we shared pictures with unexpected happenstances, this week share photos were your timing was spot on!


Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:
