Blog Party Across the WWW

**Beep, beep, beep**
We break from our regular programming here at Slices From the Pear Lady to P-A-R-T-Y! Yes, that’s right It’s once again time to dust off your boots, grab a glass of whatever (might I suggest some of this lovely margarita, or for those “driving by” a Dr Pepper), a dish of ice cream (Bluebell), and dance the week away as part of the Ultimate Blog Party! πŸ˜€

First, for the new folks around here, and for those people that may have forgotten or just need a refresher, allow me to introduce myself…I am The Pear Lady. I’m not a mom [yet], BUT I’ve taken care of lots of kids throughout the years, and am a kid at heart (In spite of my constantly aging body – LOL). Where I got the name is a trade secret, known only to certain members of the FBI, CIA (and only because they’re listening in on my phone calls), and local friends. By the way, have I told you yet that I’m slightly sarcastic and have a bit of an imagination at times? Oh good, I just did. ;P

Look! The daily news has just come in and what-do-you-know, it’s all about me! Check it out:
Newspaper clipping created at and provided by
Oh, how I love when there’s such good news in the paper. How about you? πŸ˜‰

I’ve also found this cool map to explain how a Texan sees the world. It’s not exactly “politically correct”, but it’s good for a grin or two. (And, it’s proof that Texans can have a sense of humor about themselves. LOL) You can learn more about this map and its artist at the Pentagram.

What’s a party without music? How about some American.Idol! By way of Idolfanatic4, we have for our listening pleasure, the performances of this season’s contestants, and more! Okay, so it’s not a rodeo performance like at last year’s party post. And, some of these guys and gals are not that great, but some are good for a listen, once or twice. πŸ˜‰

It’s time to wrap up this party here, but it doesn’t have to end. If you’re interested in continuing the party, join in by clicking below…

  24. Hey just wrapping up my time with some final blog party visits and had to say how awesome that you found a way to ‘get yourself in the news’ πŸ™‚ What a fun little blog you have!

  25. Interesting article as for me. I’d like to read something more about this theme.

  26. Wow. First Paula goes and now Simon is on his way out. I wonder what’s going to happen to American Idol. I wonder if it will still be as popular without Simon. I think he is a very big part of what made the show successful.

  27. Great page. Waiting for you to continue the topic.
