TODAY is Grandma Burkholder's birthday, January 24th. I thought it was yesterday, but I just checked and it is today!!! (I always had a hard time remembering what day it was!) So, Happy Birthday, Grandma. I still remember your birthday party from 2002. You were very, very, very sad because it was right after Grandpa died. But we couldn't ignore it. At least, I couldn't. That was when I got the cake for Jewell from Jewel (the grocery story). Very funny.

I'm typing in pink to match Grandma's sweater. I went into my computer this morning and read some of the old Archive entries. Amazing stuff. It's hard to know if it's lost forever or not?!?!? I haven't heard from Yahoo yet. I'll be calling them again and sending ANOTHER email. I think I might just send them an email every hour! Okay, every half hour.....haha!!

I'm going to try and find some more pictures to put in here. It's kind of different doing it this way and also kind of fun because it's WAY easier. Hope you have a GREAT day. I had a scrambled egg with bacon and whole wheat toast for breakfast. It was very good. Now, I'm going upstairs to get some coffee, I hear Bob rumbling around upstairs getting ready to go to work, so I'll have to put his eye drops in his eyes, then I'll go outside and get the Chicago Tribune and eventually do the crossword puzzle because that's good for my brain.

see ya later, djb

Tuesday, January 23, 2007

Here's the picture that I was trying to put in on the bottom of the page, but it popped up here. It looks kind of weird, but it is the swimming pool under a few inches of snow. Looks like winter has returned. oh boy!

This is Jarrett, me and Andrew at Aunt Gladys and Uncle Malvin's 50th Wedding Anniversary party in DeKalb - February 1990. We had a huge snowstorm the night that Bergs flew up from Florida. They drove to our house in North Aurora from the airport and it was a WILD drive as I recall.

I just went into my picture file and put in the first picture I saw - it's this one today. Since it's so easy to update this website, I'm sure I'll be back on here later. If, for some reason, I can't get my back on Yahoo, I'll put it somewhere else. Or maybe "they" think I should stop doing it and put my time into other endeavors. Quien sabe?

When I see that jacket I'm wearing in the picture above, it looks BLUE. But it always looked purple to me. I think that's very weird. When Andrew was really young, I thought he was color-blind because he would tell me that red was green and green was red. You can only imagine me asking him a million times what color is this - what color is that. Somewhere along the line, I heard that boys were more prone to that than girls.

The days before the internet were filled with a lot of speculation fueled by inaccurate information. Now, we just do a Google and Bingo! we know at least 1,000,000 ways to do anything. It is quite astounding. So much information - and it's all true!!!!! hahaha

Isn't it interesting that the idea for the internet was THERE all the time but it took some smart guys to figure it out and pluck it out of the ozone, and then it slowly oozed its way into our everyday lives. Same thing with the cell phones. Some day, people will just have them implanted in their heads so they don't ever have to worry about losing them. THAT'S how SMALL they'll be. Seriously, it'll happen. Wait and see.

What's nice about this website is that I don't have to move anything around. Kind of fun. BUT the one bad thing - NO MUSIC. Too bad, so sad.

Let me see if I can pop another picture in here. It went to the top. It's a picture of the snow-covered swimming pool. Well, I'm just going to have to figure this out later. Need more's early and I totally love the smell of coffee in the morning. Have a wonderful day!! bye, bye, djb

Andrew & Jarrett's Website - the old one

Here's another funny picture of Jarrett in his crib with Andrew pulling on his sleeve. This one cracks me up, too.

Here's the location of the old website: Good luck to you. They're changing it over to a different system, so that may not work either!!! Doncha love it. bye for now. djb

I Lost My Other Website

Here's Andrew in his Bear's outfit with the football. It's SO cute. I lost my other website,, so I figured I'd come on here for a while. It's kind of funny because I've never had THAT happen before.

I was going to shovel the driveway today because I don't know how to use the snowblower but I blew it off. haha. It's too cold out there, and besides I had better things to do. Like, go to Target and go to the grocery store. I even did the self-checkout because Shawna was there and I always have to see her or Donna when I go to the grocery store.

Better go and put this up. I have my other Blogger website and now I have this one. Isn't that fun? I wish I could put music on here. If I can put music on, then I just might have to go to myspace. HA!! See ya later, djb

Sunday, January 21, 2007 - Snowy Day

Here are Jarrett and Andrew in their Bears' gear on September 27, 1990. It must've been a cold fall day because Jarrett's wearing his hat. I also have a picture of them sitting outside on the porch swing.

Today, the Bears play the Saints which is kind of funny considering the fact that I call them the "saintly boys!"

bye for now, djb GO BEARS!!
