Stop With the Music Already…Please!

Stop With the Music Already…Please!

As I mentioned I have found a lot of great blogs in the past few days which is great. One thing that is not great though is the music playing on these blogs! ACK! Stop with the automatic music on your blog/website already. I’m sorry to tell you this, but it is very annoying. Want to share your favorite music? Put up a list, put up links, heck go ahead … Continue Reading →

There are a lot of other great giveaways out there, these are just a few that I have come across and like and decided to share. Remember to read the directions for … Continue Reading →
Tag Games & Your Favorite Blogs

Tag Games & Your Favorite Blogs

Now that the carnival has ended we need something new to do. So two questions for everyone (you don’t have to answer both if you don’t want). 1. Blog Tag Games – I did one a few weeks ago with 6 quirky things. I know there are plenty of similar tagging games out there for bloggers. You know, tell us something on your blog, then tag other bloggers to do … Continue Reading →
Poo Paper?

Poo Paper?

Well, here is something green. Well um, maybe it was brown to start? Regardless I think it’s actually quite clever. They make paper stationery products like note cards, journals, and the like out of elephant poo. On their site they tell you about how they actually complete the process and they promise the products they sell in the Poo-tique do not smell stinky at all. For all of you fellow … Continue Reading →
Reading – Internet vs. Books

Reading – Internet vs. Books

Interesting article in the New York Times, Literacy Debate: Online, R U Really Reading? I really do think you can get a lot out of reading online, but a good book is always nice as well. As a homeschooling parent, it is more of a challenge to get my teen son to read a book these days, but pretty easy to get him to read online. Does he get anything … Continue Reading →

Another Birthday Party!

Last night we had another birthday party. This time for my mom & dad. We are all done now with July’s birthdays. What the heck is going on 9 months before July for so many people to be born in this month? Mom is always tough to buy for, but we got her a MyPlace laptop stand. Dad is pretty tricky these days also, but we were more creative this … Continue Reading →

Where Oh Where Did My Comment Go…

Where Oh Where Did My Comment Go…

I just learned this from Wendy over at Swisher Sweetie the other day, and today I’ve had 3 emails about the same thing. So you are going along entering my blog giveaway and lots of others. Sometimes you see your comment right away, other times it never seems to show up. Where oh where did your comment go? This explanation applies to blogs using the standard Blogger form (like my … Continue Reading →
Battery, Tires, Oil Change, What Next?

Battery, Tires, Oil Change, What Next?

Made my grocery list, have my reusable grocery bags, go out to the car, put in the key, nothing. Dead, dead, dead! Argh! Call my hubby, who happens to be an automotive tech, he tells me it’s probably the battery and he had the parts guy at his work order one and will bring it home tonight. Sigh, more money. I really don’t like having to spend money on my … Continue Reading →
