G for ABC Wednesday

Note: I cannot comment on those Google Blogs which bear the drop-down menu for ID purposes. Solution?

ABC Wednesday prompts with the letter G for this week. Thanks!

All that glitters is not gold. This glitter is pyrite, fool's gold, and I've sure found more than my share of it with not so much of the real thing.

Those which don't glitter are garnets which are found in local 'digs' and will occasionally come to light while gold panning. While these garnets are not gem quality, they can be polished to an acceptable level of utility.

Wishing each of you the perfect amount of glitter!

I have some Fool's Gold! But I don't have any rough garnets in my collection. I bet they look nice, polished, even if they're not gem quality!

Metaphorically amusing!

My glitter is in my smile.

How much glitter is the perfect amount though? Depends on the day I guess. I enjoyed this G post.

You couldn't have made a post more interesting to me - I love minerals and gemstones!

Thanks for your comment on my glass dragon, and on behalf of the ABC Team, thanks for posting in spite of the difficulties!

I'm partial to SILVER rather than gold. As for your commenting problem, that happened a while back pretty universally and it's one of the reasons I went back to the popup box on my Blogger sites. That said, I've not had trouble leaving comments on sites with drop down windows recently. Has this been going on long?
Hugs and blessings,

A bit of glitter in life is good.
