    Time to change, plus time for the GRAND Social

    Ah, Daylight Savings Time. It's not much fun the first couple days as we struggle to wake up get used to the change.

    Perhaps the following will make it a little easier:

    ♪ Sha na na na na na na na. Sha na na na na. ♫

    Okay, maybe not easier, but definitely cheesier. And cheese is good, right?

    The GRAND Social is good, too. Thank you for joining me!

    link party

    How it works:

    • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog specifically about grandparenting, but you must be a grandparent who blogs.
    • To link up, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to your blog's home page. Then click the blue "Click here to enter" text below and follow the directions to add your post and graphic to the list.
    • You can add up to three posts, but no duplicates, please, and none you have promoted on a previous GRAND Social linky.
    • No contests, giveaways, or Etsy sites, please.
    • Adding a mention at the bottom of your linked posts, such as This post has been linked to the GRAND Social linky, is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button using the following code:


    <a href="" target="_blank"><img src=" " alt="Grandma’" width="125" height="125" /></a>


    • The GRAND Social linky is open for new posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.
    • If you're not a blogger, you have the pleasure of being a reader. All bloggers who link up would be honored to have you all — bloggers and readers — visit, read and comment, even if it's just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social."

    Thank you for participating in the GRAND Social!
