Fabulous – Secular Homeschooling Magazine

Fabulous – Secular Homeschooling Magazine

If you are in search of a fabulous, worth-every-penny, non-fluff, homeschooling magazine to subscribe to I highly suggest Secular Homeschooling Magazine. This is a new magazine and I’ve subscribed since the start and have loved every issue (quarterly at the time I am writing this). The editor has a great writing style. On her blog, Diary of a Mad Editor, you can get more of a sense of this also. … Continue Reading →
Do You Know Where Your Money Has Been?

Do You Know Where Your Money Has Been?

So do you ever wonder who else has had the cash in your wallet or maybe where it’s going next? Where’s George is a site that will track your bills across the country for you. You put in the serial number and mark the bill and spend it as usual. Then hopefully the next person that gets it will see your marking and go to Where’s George and enter it’s … Continue Reading →
Independence Day – USA

Independence Day – USA

We are at home today. My son loves to do the firework just as much as my husband. I used to like them when I was younger, but now as a mom I’m not so crazy about them at all. I just try to stay out of their way today and let them do their thing. Yesterday, for our homeschooling (we just do very small planned things in the summer) … Continue Reading →
Back to School Ads – ALREADY?

Back to School Ads – ALREADY?

As a homeschooling family the Back to School ads are always a bit interesting since we view things a bit different. I couldn’t believe it though going through all my emails today that I had my very first Back to School ad here on just July 1! Yikes! Continue Reading →
I Guess They Really Don’t Want Me To Buy It

I Guess They Really Don’t Want Me To Buy It

Ok, small rant this morning. Why do these websites send out emails that feature certain items, and then when you click on them they don’t take you to that specific item at all? Sometimes they do this same thing on the front page of their websites also. Instead of taking you the item shown, they take you to a category area. Now if the company is small and only has … Continue Reading →
K9 Web Protection

K9 Web Protection

My son’s friend got his first computer recently and they called today to ask about putting parental controls on it. We have been using K9 Web Protection for quite some time and I really do like it a lot. It’s easy to set up and you can block by category, plus you can add specific sites to white and black lists if you need to. You can set up times … Continue Reading →
Free Computer Essentials

Free Computer Essentials

Lots of folks ask me about computer help. Here are a few free things to help keep your computer happy. There are pay versions of some of them, but if you need/want free it will all definitely work for you. I believe that all of these have a message board of some type that other users will help you with questions on how to set up, run, use, configure, etc. … Continue Reading →
Qdoba Mexican Grill

Qdoba Mexican Grill

Today my son and I went to Qdoba Mexican Grill for lunch. We just happened to stumble upon it doing errands out of our normal stomping grounds. I had been hearing about this place for a while and wanted to try it but hadn’t seen any in our own city. I’m awfully glad we stumbled upon it today – it’s delicious! We also found out they are opening a couple … Continue Reading →
