January Theme Day: Changes


Our state welcome sign went through a change recently. We are no longer "Mississippi, it's like coming home" but "Mississippi, birthplace of America's music." I still like the idea of coming home (especially since Mississippi is home for me), but the new sign is nice.


Happy New Year everyone! Hope 2010 brings you lots of love, joy and most importantly, good health!!

That's quite a change. I too prefer the former sign - just wish I could visit Mississippi one day. One day, who knows?! Wishing you and yours the very best for 2010, Halcyon.

Both signs carry an important message. And, if it's a welcome sign, it must be on the border so moving from one state to the next is always a change!

In this case, I'm not sure the change is for the better.

I have found some nice photos from 2007 and 2008 that I would like to use in my blogs but last night was a bad night for me and I didn't get much rest. Most of the time I had one coughing fit after another. I thought I would try to just say, "thanks" to those who stopped today. I appreciate the comments, visits and prayers. I hope things will get back to normal soon.

All things seem to change, even signs. I like them both and the new one does give recognition to your state's importance in American music.

Thanks for your kind comments, and while I'm still not blogging daily, I wish you the very best in the coming year!

I like the old visual and the new thought. It's always nice to be reminded of music, and I'm such a blues fan! I love the flower image, though - the colors are clean and the imatge is well done. Thanks for showing these!

I like the coming home theme better too, even the flower. The typography of the new sign is better though. :)

Wishing you and your family a new year blessed with joy, peace, good health, prosperity and much, much love.

Oh, and lots of golf and plays too!
