About Me

My photo
I am a 42 year old woman that is about as happy and content as one person can be. My husband of 21 years and our 15 year old daughter live on five and a half acres out in the country. We moved from the city four years ago and never looked back. I homeschool our daughter. We also love our animals. Our daughter has a miniature horse and two rabbits. We also have a border collie, two cats (again), two pot belly pigs, four peafowl, three emus, 2 llamas and an undetermined number of chickens, lets just say ohhh about 200. I have many breeds, from layers to fancy chickens. I love poultry shows, I love fowl in general as I have come to find out through having more than just chickens. Chickens will always be my first love though. I do show some of my birds occasionally.

Sooo...then. My computer more or less crashed...Ian worked on it last night and all day today...into tonight, and here I am...

Only to learn that JOURNALS are going to be DELETED?

I see we are all moving to Blogspot...I have an account there, just never used it, so I will be over there just as soon as I can read up on how to save my journal.

I told Ian, and was in a panic in a way, that I have made so many friends, that we are a family on here...they are messing with family! What the hay ya know??? Fine...maybe this is for the best. It will make us all kick the AOL habit and move on to new and better things!


It is late, and I see I have many emails from everyone letting me into their new homes on blogspot. This makes me smile. I see lots of folks are going there...so maybe we can all stay together and wont get seperated. I sure hope so. I will be on tomorrow all day setting up house at my new place. :) Look for an email from me with a link over the weekend.

I am babbling, time to get some sleep. Night night. XOXOXOXOXO

Kelly one of the journal editors said to start a blog in another title than this one. Apparently when they move our journals over if they find the old title then they won't know where to send it and it would be harder for them to move. Thing is a lot of us had already made the same title as our aol one before that notice was published. I have had a mess wioth mine trying to change the name but I already had some followers in blogger so I just settled on what I ended up with. My blog url has the extra 2 in it but when I pull it up the tilte is the same. None of the change over doesn't start until oct. 7th and that is the day of my back surgery so I may not be able to get anything done on moving things over just may have to let the aol one go. Anyway here is my new address over at blogger. be sure to add yourself as a follower. Thsnks, Helen

Hey Kelly,
I've been wondering where you were.  My link is on the old journal.  Check out Donna's blog from This & That & Hockey...  She told me how to save my journal & it worked.  Her new blog is Ds Designs & Other things.  I'm off to work .... check back with you this evening!

I am already there and can't do anything with it.  It's way harder and so far it sucks for me.  I'm copying and pasting each entry including comments into a word document because I do not trust AOL to get it all without screwing it up.  That's quiet and undertaking though since I've only written for FOUR FREAKIN' YEARS.  LOL  

Over on Blogspot I'm FIRE AND REIGN.  I don't know how to give the address yet.  

Love, Nelishia

A bunch of us have found each other over there already, Kelly! Both Ken and I are liking it pretty well. You have to get used to a few things, but there are a lot of good things about it. Hope you'll visit!

Please send me your new addy so that I can update my Following feature.  I have been over at Blogger for a while now and I thing you will like it.  When you do start one bookmark or favorite place your 'Dashboard' page.  The  Dashboard is like the control center for your blog and your blogger account.  You can access everything you need from that page.  The new Following feature even puts updates to the blogs you follow right on the Dashboard so you don't have to hunt around the web for them.

Looking forward to seeing your new page where ever you go.  Please send your new link to kristijohnson72@aol.com.
