Friendly Friday

Today is a special St. Patrick's Day parade! Wow, look at all the different colors of green. What a beautiful sight...

photoshopping by the Eldest

I asked Dwayne, drummer in the FFMB, what being in the band has done for him.

Well first off I know the FFMB has brought a lot of foot traffic to my site. I have made several good friends on this FFMB bunch. Plus what is great is there a lot of good Christians out there. This being St. Patrick's Day I hope everyone has there green on? I want to thanks Carol for letting me be a part of the FFMB. I can't forget Andrew I think he was the one to bring the FFMB to my site?


Thanks Dwayne.

Today's sites are all written by young lasses. The featured site is "Some Person" at 14 Years and Counting. I like her blog because:
  • 14 is a great age to write from.
  • I like her sense of humor. "I am learning to play electric but its going a bit slow since i don't have a guitar."
  • I heard of a "peace-in" but not a "peace out"!
  • I want to see if her blog actually does consume her. Go, girl...

Meet Srushti, an aspiring singer, at Me, Me, Me!!! I enjoyed reading her blog but she hasn't blogged since January 16th. I have to know if she got that audition.

Visit Sarah, an aspiring writer and clogger, at Nobody Girl.

Thanks everyone for taking the time out of your busy St. Patrick's Day celebrations to make the parade route with us. Remember to be happy and be green!

Get your banner here!

For those wondering how the band works:
To join the Friends of the Friendless Marching Band, leave a comment stating that you wish to join then choose any instrument you like. (ability isn't an issue for this cyber band) We have two piano players, a harpist, trombonist and french horn player plus a variety of more so you get the idea that any instrument is possible.
On Fridays, the band meets to visit the chosen friendless sites which I list. Leave friendly comments for our honored recipients. Let them know that you are from the FFMB.
Get to know other band members. There is sure to be someone you can connect with.
Nominate friendless sites. They can be bloggers you know or ones that you come across in your blog surfs. Think unique. These sites have less than 5 comments/post. Leave me a comment with their address.

Barbara said...

Hi Carol - I wasn't able to load the second site. I visited the other two.

A very Happy St. Patrick's day to you, our fearless leader!

Carol said...

What a great Green day march!

Congrats to the first show, Mama B.

Way to go, Killired!

You are doing it right, Friday's Child. Thanks for all those nominations.

I wouldn't think you would be the silent type, but ah well, its always good to see you.

Right, you look good in apple green.

We are honored to have you visit, Some Person!

No problem, Mar. You over commited on your Patrick Day celebrations, did you?

Sister Celtic,
I know there have been sites down. Unfortunate...

Nobody Girl,
We would love to have you and your theremin. (?)
And a clogger in the band. Alright!

Thank you, Barbara. Great pictures by the way.

Lazy Daisy said...

Hi Carol, Just finished the March early this morning. There were some very different sites this week. Thanks for scouting them out.

Chrixean said...

Did my rounds already! Sorry for being so late with this. Was feeling sick the past few days....:(
Have a happy weekend, carol!

Dear Carol,
Those were GREAT BLOGS you chose for this week! Since you love quizzes, I have another one!
In spite of the crazy weather here in my town, I have picked the quiz called: WHAT TYPE OF WEATHER ARE YOU? It is at:

I got you are lightning:Beautiful yet dangerous
People will stop and watch you when you appear
Even though you're capable of random violence

You are best known for: your power

Your dominant state: performing

Check out my blog for a small poll too!


Sincerely, Artpuppy94

Kathy said...

Happy Satruday. Yup, I missed the march yesterday (and it looked so inviting). I'll try to catch up today.
Happy belated St. Patty's Day to all the marchers.

Kaity said...

Hey again! I would love to join as a drummer (You know what im talking about)

DwayneinBonanza said...

Hi Carol thanks for asking to be part of the FFMB. Thank you for asking to be in the spotlight:).

Carol said...

Hi Lazy Daisy,
Remember it is just not me doing the scouting, but all of us.

Hi Chrixean,
I hope you are feeling better now. You gotta take care of yourself.

I'm going to try that one.
Violent, well hopefully not on Friendly Friday;)

Hey Kathy!

Some Person,
I added you to the roll!

You are welcome! You deserve it, too.

My blog went crazy on me since last Friday at lunch.

Saturday was tough getting the updates done for Friday too as the site suddenly went blank or lost portions of it somehow. Thought I lost the whole blog section, but it is now OK. Phew! Just maintenance.

A bit left behind, but I am marching on today. Have a great St Pat's!

Carol said...

Friday's Child,
Re: your earlier comment
I couldn't link to Pam but there has been problems with blogger lately. Remind me of her later if I forget!

I am glad you could make it, at all. Blogger was frustrating a lot of people this weekend.
