My new nephew was born yesterday at 3:10 pm. He weighs 8lb,1oz and is 21 and a half inches long.

Your Animal is the Raven
You have an incredible work ethic and are very tenacious. You like to productive.
No matter what you want in life, you're committed to making it happen.

You are infinitely patent. You are philosophical about life and feel that good things will eventually come.
You believe it's important to carve out your own space in the world. You will change your life until you feel comfortable.

I have 2 younger sisters and they each have a 15 year old daughter. Today, I took Crystal's daughter Beverly on a 2 hour driving lesson. I let her drive on some of the curviest, hilliest roads that I could find, and she did great. I want her to learn how to drive these roads with someone by her side, so she'll be able to handle them later. We had a fine time. 

If you have read my earlier posts, you know that my sister Julie and her husband Mark won't let their children out of their sight. Guess what? Out of the blue, Mark agreed to let me take Allison driving this evening! I told her to get in the car before Julie found out! It was a lot of fun, and  Allison was very relaxed because I'm very laid-back and don't get upset if she makes mistakes. Julie gets uptight and fusses.

Before I left with each of the girls, I told them that I wouldn't get mad, even if they dented the car or something. It made them feel more secure. I also told them that there was no way to scare me-anyone who will ride in a car while my mother drives has no fear. I'm serious; they should make a horror movie about being trapped in a car driven by my mother.

I'm not anal about proper grammar and frequently post in colloquial English. However, I can't stand it when someone says "give it to Todd and I" or "do this for Todd and I." It's "give it to Todd and me" and "do this for Todd and me."  Think: You say "give it to me"  and "do this for me."   Even if you add another person, me is still the correct form.

When someone says "give it to Todd and I" they sound like an ignorant person trying to sound intelligent.

Surprisingly, the last 6 people I've heard make this mistake all had college degrees, and 5 of them were school teachers.

I haven't been on LJ very long, and I've met some great people. The problem is that I often check out someones profile and am surprised to find out how strongly they discourage contact. (Believe me, I have no intention of bothering them after I read something like that.) Are there really that many people on LJ who lurk around harassing people? If there are, give me a friendly warning. I need to know how to protect myself.

What I'm wondering is, if you do not possess some degree of openness, how do you meet people?

After looking around a bit,I'm assuming that a private message is the best way to inquire about friending someone.

If I have committed any journal no-nos, then let me know. As I've said, I'm new to this and don't know the ropes.

Thanks to all of the wonderful people that have friended me. I didn't know that I was going to have this much fun.
