Howdy, Neighbor!

The BBC series "Good Neighbors" is one of my old favorites. And it's here because I've been doing maintenance on the Artful Quilters Blog Ring and thinking about what a nice and creative neighborhood we have here in blogland.

If you're like me, you tend to settle into a list of blogs you read regularly, and you don't often find the time to explore other blogs on the AQ ring. There's only so much time for blogs, as we all know. Still, every time I hop around the ring I'm amazed at the diversity of art styles and artists' lives and I always enjoy it.

So -- in the spirit of starting the new year off in a neighborly way, here's a challenge for you:

Go to the AQ Blog Ring box on your blog, and hit the "random" button 3 times. Leave a comment at each of the blogs you visit through your random wandering. If nothing else, just say hi. We all love comments.... think of this as visiting your neighbor with a batch of fresh cookies!

And if you don't do this from time to time, go head and hit the "next" and "previous" buttons on your ring box so you know who your immediate neighbors are -- leave comments there, too.

Happy visiting!

    Diane, in Australia (and I suspect in the UK) this show was called "The Good Life" - I guess they retuitled it for the US? The original graphics were really lovely, a dove flew around a flower and petals appeared... I adore all the actors, though of course Paul Eddington and Richard Briars are both gone now...

    Thanks fore the reminder about checking on our blog ring neighbours - will do !

  2. Good Neighbors is a favorite of mine, too. We recently watched the whole series again.
    "Posh frock" is a line we use around here and get a silly laugh.

  3. Yep - this very funny tv series was called 'The GOod Life' in UK. and one tha tI love to watch over and over again especially the episode where Margot was dressed in yellow from hat to wellies helping with collecting in the harvest in the rain!!

  4. I also had a go at your neighbourly challenge and I'm sorry but I am not doing that again. - three clicks and I hit a porn photographer!! I have no intention of leaving him any comments!! :-)
