I can tell you that growing up in a big city and then migrating to, well one of the cities mentioned on the list, I can tell the difference. I run every day and I can certainly feel the clean air coming into my lungs. I know what it felt like in a big city.
Aloha visitors, have you tried something that you want to share with the rest of us?
It could be food, TV show, or anything else we may find interesting.
Me, I’ve become somewhat hooked on the Long Island Medium. While I may be a bit skeptical of the whole premise, I find the show entertaining.
How it Works
• On the linky below, enter your name and what you are linking to. For example, Posh-GFC, Mel-Twitter
• If you have more than one page to link to, go ahead and post them all separately.
• Linking to a giveaway post specifically is viewed as spam, and as such, will be deleted just as spam will.
• Under 100 GFC Followers? Under 200 Twitter? Under 200 Facebook Page likes? Under 50 in your circle? Please add “low” next to your name so we know to help you out!
• YES, you can link to your hop. You may want to add “linky” next to it.
• Make a goal to visit 5 others, like/friend them, and then leave a comment telling them hello.
• Thursday Comment Club has been merged to Friday and Tuesday Friend and Follow. Feel free to list “comment” on your entry (as long as it is NOT for a giveaway of course)
***TIP: Blogger Users- The changes to the blogger word verification has made it difficult for others to post comments. Turn off your word verification and you’ll most likely get more comments! ***
