My World Map Stats

Here it is…My World Map Stats

I’m having some difficulty getting some of these communist countries to let their inhabitants visit my blog site.  Gee whiz, my friend Stella and her kids who live in Beijing, China, read my blogs all the time, but it counts as the U.S.  …don’t ask, too complicated to even begin to explain (something about not even being allowed to have Facebook).

I started thinking that my plan to get my map to glow is not going to be easy task.  How will I get someone to visit my blog from countries that don’t speak english (ie: Spain).   Italy has somehow eluded me too…and I’m Italian…how lame is that?

Sigh…oh well, what can you do?  Thanks to all of you who have made a concerted effort contact your foreign friends and relatives so that to my map would glow bright.

This is a list of the countries I have thus far.  (I tried to copy the glowing map for you to see too, but for some reason it won’t co-operate).  Some of you have some friends in really interesting places, as you can see below.  I wish I knew more about blogging so I can figure out how to get some more countries!

I just wanted to send you instructions on how to “Follow” my blog because I know some of you were having difficulty trying to figure out how to do this.  I’m rather new at this too, so my cousin sent me the instructions below.  Good luck….

As for the “Follow” button:  when I go to the website, a black box pops up on the bottom right side corner that says “Follow”.  If you click on the “+” sign, it opens up and you just input your e-mail address.

I’m starting to get a little nervous about my trip to France.  I’ve never flown anywhere alone before.  I’m meeting my cousin Boo from Australia at terminal 3.  I  arrive 1 1/2 hours before her.  She wants me to meet her at the Terminal 3 shuttle station.  However, I noticed that in Terminal 1 there is a casino.  I told her she can find me there because I wanted to win enough money to stay at Frances 5 Star Hotels.  
When I got married in August 2000, she came to Canada to be one of my bridesmaids.  She wanted to go to New York, but I told her that I didn’t have enough money (because of all my wedding expenses).  However, one day we decided to tag along with some relatives and go to Woodbine Racetrack.  We made a pack.  If either one of us won enough money, we would go to New York together.  I’m not a big gambler, and I decided I would only spend $20 bucks.  Big spender eh?  So I remember the tips my friend Liz gave me (her mother and grandmother loved playing the slot machines in Vegas).  She said, “Feel the machine and if it’s warm, go for it… and ALWAYS put in the Maximum”.  I hovered over some machines and found one that I was pretty sure was a good one.  Put in my twenty bucks.  It ate it all up, but I still had a feeling that it was going to win big.  Yelled at my cousin to come over and put some money in.  She put in $10 bucks and in two spins….DING DING DING DING DING went the flashing yellow lights.  We had no idea how much we won, but we were jumping around like a bunch of LUNATICS.  WE WON…WE WON…We are going to go to NEW YORK!  WE had 3 lucky 7’s in a row.  We had no idea how much money we won, but there was a car on the top (progressive slots) and I was beginning to think we could drive down to New York in a new car!
Finally, an attendant came.  “How much did we win?”, we screamed.  $1, 250.  Just enough for the two of us to go to New York!
T’was Fate.
