A demain, nous commencons. . . . Wait, this isn't the French blog. Let's start over. 

Tomorrow is the beginning of the "A - Z Challenge," the blog hop for billions. Well, it seems like billions. Last time I checked it was 1618 1709. Now, how does anyone follow that many blogs? One doesn't; one chooses what one will do. 

It's a very mixed offering, from books and film, through music and cooking, to history and science and "adult content." They all Bear considering (I'm sure).

Tomorrow we sing, "We've only just begun," and we carry on until the end of April. 

See you there!

Slowly, pieces are falling into place. I'm helping the transition by carefully rebuilding my blog list on this side. Yes, it is a bit of a challenge; there are lot of good blogs to be moved, so I can find them easily. It will take time. As always, most recent thoughts from others on top, and that's how I check them when I wake up and open up the blog. 

If you're new here, I've been blogging since (Bear checks stats) 2007, though I haven't used this blog much for a long time. So if you're hunting about, you won't see much here. (If you want to see more of what Bear has been doing, check Chrome on the Range.)

Thanks again for coming over here. Hope see you anon (an on, an on, an on!).

And yes, I'm participating the the 2013 edition of the "A - Z Challenge." I should have something here just about every day in April.

OK, I made a misteak yesterday. I came out of hibernation way too soon. It is so cold my feet hurt. And my ears hurt. And I feel very dishorganized.

I may not get back to hibernating, but I'm going back to my winter den. I did get a belly full of berries yesterday (and earlier this morning), so I think I'll be able to be able to get a decent rest.

"The temperature?" you ask. Below 0°F. 

See you tomorrow, or later this week. Or something. 

Oh, wait! Before I pack it in, I need to check on the annual "Eh? to Zed Bloggers Challenge," or whatever they call it. Mr. Kavanagh, I think, is in charge. 

Meanwhile, here's something for you to consider. I'm not the only one who is up and about. So are some Elk. Some of you may have seen this before; this may be the first time for others. But it is fun; a gentle laugh for everyone.

Blessings and Bear hugs.
