    Yay, Broncos! Plus, GRAND Social No. 191 link party for grandparents

    Yay, Broncos!

    The Denver Broncos are going to the Super Bowl! Hooray for the home team!

    It was sheer joy all across social media last night for Broncos fans — and the Broncos — as Peyton Manning and the gang beat (big time!) Tom Brady and the Patriots!

    Congratulations, Broncos! Let's take it all the way!

    GRAND Social No. 191

    Hooray for the GRAND Social, too! Please join in by reading and linking. And don't forget: You need not be a blogger to share a link!

    grand social link party

    How it works:

    • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
    • Grandparents who do not blog (or want to share something other than their own post) are welcome to add links to other posts grandparent readers may be interested in.
    • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to the blog or website home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
    • I reserve the right to remove posts I feel are inappropriate. (Which hasn't happened yet, but I feel obligated to note that, just in case.)
    • Those who add links to the GRAND Social link party will be sent a weekly reminder when the party goes live. If you prefer to be removed from that email list, feel free to do so (and you'll still be more than welcome to join the party any time).
    • If adding your own post, including a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:
    <a rel="nofollow" href="" target="blank"><img src="" alt="Grandma’" width="125" height="125" /></a>
    • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.
    • If you're not a linker (yeah, I probably made up that word), you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.

    :) :) :) Lots of cheering going on here too - not from me (I'm Trekkie not football-y :) ). But some loved ones - well, one of the loved ones. The other was still mourning his team being bumped a game or two ago. :) Congrats and HAVE FUN for the Super Bowl :)
