Happy New Year, Jelveh! I would love to swim with Dolphins. What fun!!

I have an experimental website now .....

I say experimental because it's just a website I created with my Mac account and it was so fun to do. However, I need to set up a registered account so people can find me. That's on my "stuff to do" list.

Jelveh, that looks like you and hubby had so much fun. Happy New Year. I love dolphins and the cute little sounds that they make. It looks like you spent the New Year in Hawaii. I can't wait to see the new beads in the store. Hope you and hubby have a wonderful 2010 and also Happy New Year to all of the Jelveh bloggers.
Peace and Love

Hi Jelveh:
Isn't swimming with dolphins an awesome experience? Love it!
Cool! Someone found another use for your key bead mandrel. Great idea!
It is unusually cold for here right now. We live in Florida as you know and we have had a nice fire going for the last two days. So nice to sit by it with a good book and a cup of tea---with lemon, of course!

Dolphins, how AWESOME!!! I take Zack to the National Aquarium often to see the dolphins.

thanks all, it was such a cool experience, I have been this close to a Rhino before, that is why I love Rhinos so much as I got to put an apple in the mouch of one, touch its teeth and had a moment with him, never mind he was as big as my car (VW Beetle) he was the most gentel animal I ever met...

and now Tulaggy, he was so so awesome, and friendly, I even have a movie of us with him, swimming and he kissed us too...i read somewhere some scientists are trying to give new status to dolphins, a none human person status due to the size of their brains and how they teach each other what they learn from us...
