Merry Christmas

Also Wishing You Bling Under the Christmas Tree

I Hope this year was as great for you as it was for me. Even though I didn't get to post as much as I would have liked toward the last half of this year, I was busy out on my motorcycle. Sorry I didn't share the adventures with you, but I did have a lot of fun ;)

This winter has been more fierce than past winters and I have hardly gotten my bike out, sigh. We have been getting snow off and on for the last few months. Just yesterday we got a decent dusting and it is very Christmasy outside. When the snow melts off the roads there is a lot of that little gravel all over. I do need to get my V-Star out for a run around the block just to keep the battery charged. I did do a few very cool things on my bike that I will have to share over this winter with you.

I finished my first two college classes the first week of December and earned A's in both, yea!!! For those who are new to my blog, at 48 I have gone back to college to earn the degree I never finished. Turns out I waited too long and now I must start all over. Because I work full-time, I'm going the an Associates in Computer Information Systems. I love computers and am really excited about this. The two year degree will take me 6 years at the rate I'm going, lol. For anyone just graduated from high school or graduated in the last two years or so - Don't do like me and put off college. Get it done now and over with!!! It's much harder with a family and a full-time job.

I'm already enrolled in the next two classes that will start mid-January. I really enjoyed and learned a lot with the last two classes - Intro to PC Applications (the Business Suite of Microsoft 2007) and PC Spreadsheet Concepts (Microsoft 2007 Excel). They are already coming in handy at work helping the kids on the computers. The school district is converting over to Microsoft 2007 this coming spring and I will be so ready to help others learn the new layout. I love Microsoft 2007, but boy is it really different from any previous updates.

I had better go, with it being Christmas Eve I have things to do. I've been thinking about everyone and hoping all is well with you and yours.

Happy Holidays,
Biker Betty

I've missed you. Winter has been bitter here in Missouri also; we haven't ridden in about three weeks.

But spring will come.

Merry Christmas.

Hey You! Nice to hear you are still up and riding. Congratulations on the great grades. I wish I had it in my to study, but somehow, I just can't. I hope to hear of your adventures this Spring and Summer when school is out!
Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Merry Christmas. Hope you are able to ride throughout the year.... Colorado is a wonderful place to do so... NLM

good for you. I started back in my early 40's thinking that I would finish... but darn it -- someone offered me a job and I went that direction instead. I regret it now.

Happy Holidays!

Happy New Year, Betty! I found your blog via Jovi and am so glad you posted your mini-bio on this post. Congratulations on going back to school. I'm 55 and finished my degree at about the same time you did so I understand what it means to you to be doing this. I got my first motorcycle, Harley Sportster 1200L this past year. It was slow going last summer learning to ride but I'm eager to hit the roads once our frigid Ontario winter thaws. I'll look forward to reading your adventures and tips as well.

Happy New Year!

Hi Donna, Thanks for the well wishes and I will have to hop on over to your blog and say hi.

Hey KT, Thanks and you are pretty busy yourself. I really enjoy reading your adventures.

Hi Earl, Thanks and I will try to stay sane. With all that homework it's a real trial at times, lol.

Hi Mike, Thanks so much for stopping by and the best to you too.

Hi NLM, Thanks. Are you still doing the Round Robin? I need to check out if it's still going on. I will stop by and say hi.

Hi Pamela, Sounds like everything worked out well for you. I'm not sure where my education will lead me, but it's already handy for my current job, which I love. Call me weird, I like working with raging hormonal misguided teens, lol. They really need understanding.

Hey Geist, Happy Holidays to you and may winter up in Canada be short!!

Hi Jennifer, I'm so glad you stopped by and left a comment. You make very beautiful cards and I really enjoyed reading your blog.

Happy Holidays Everyone and the Best New Year Yet,

Biker Betty
