Thank You and Changes

Here at the Chat 'n' Chew Cafe' I wanted to tell you thank you for reading.I have learned so much while blogging about things that interest me. Mostly, I just want to have fun. Are we having fun yet?

(To get your own Bless This Chick figure go to their web site and build your very own! Thanks, Paula, for showing this to me.)

We have only a short time here and life is too short for worrying about things we cannot change. Which brings me to my next subject....

I'm going to let you in on a little secret...there's change in the air!

It seems only yesterday that life was like this:

Now it's gone to this:

But the changes I want you to notice are some subtle changes here in the Chat 'n' Chew Cafe'. I will still have writers featured on When I Was Just a Kid each week. I have many lined up, but am still looking for more. If you have a suggestion of a writer whom you'd like to see who hasn't been featured yet, leave a comment. I would also like to start featuring editors. (I haven't actually asked any yet, but I plan on it.) If you look to the right, I already have featured two literary agents--Wendy Lawton and Terry Whalin.

To the top right you'll see I've added a poll. Look for a poll each week. If you have a burning question that you'd like to see polled, don't hesitate to leave me a comment.

Next, I've added a current list of the books I'm reading to the bottom of the right hand column. Occasionally I will giveaway a book for those who leave comments. (I'll specify the days for that.)Some authors I'm featuring are also putting up books, so look for that, too.

I always want to know what people are thinking, so I'm going to start asking YOU questions or to complete the sentence.

So,to start off this week, leave your comment answering this question:

What historical figure do you admire most?

Hi, I'm visiting you from Delia's blog!
I enjoy your blog very much...what cute pictures!
To answer your question I'm saying Helen Keller, and all the Pioneer Women that made the trails westward through such hardships!

Harriet Tubman, the most famous conductor of the Underground Railroad, was called the “Moses of her People,” Harriet, a fugitive slave herself, made the dangerous trip back into the south nineteen times to lead more than 300 slaves to freedom. Despite her sleeping spells (epilepsy), she never “ran her train off the track, nor lost a single passenger.” As she always said. "Twasn't me, t'was the Lord." She's one of the few figures in history whose story cannot be told without telling of the power of the Lord to change people. If you look in any public school text about Tubman you'll find her story intertwined with His.

And I'll have to think about the historical figure question...
