Meme Explanation

In the comments, Sea-gal asked what a meme was – so here is an answer of sorts. According to a meme is: A unit of cultural information, such as a cultural practice or idea, that is transmitted verbally or by repeated action from one mind to another.

In the blogosphere, it is like a game or a theme chain letter. Usually someone sends you a specific question or questions that you answer on your blog. Then you "tag" others and keep the meme going. I did not tag anyone in my post yesterday since the meme had gone around most of the bloggers I read. This was a fun meme, but it took a lot of time to find the pictures and get them posted. If anyone wants to try this meme on their blog, go for it. You can also look at CoP, Inquiries, Skybag, and EIP to see how their meme went. Becky did a picture meme, too, but I had trouble linking hers. I would love to see Diva, Sea-gal, Kris, Dawn and others do the meme too, but it is time consuming.

Jesse also posted more pics of Hawaii that should have you LOL.

I've just been tremendously impressed with Jesse's photography. I really DO believe she could be a pro if she wanted to. The girl has an eye that's outstanding.

She is planning on taking a photography class through the local college this summer - it will be online. She was hoping for a journalist type photo class, but it may be more of a photoshop type class. I think she has a great eye for art.
