3 Columns – WooHoo!

3 Columns – WooHoo!

Happy dance – got the 3 column thing working! P.S. For those working on 3 columns I don’t have a ton of advice. Since I was using a Blogger.com template I was easily able to find (several) other blogs that had already modified the same template into 3 columns and offered up the code for it. I grabbed the code, … Continue Reading →
Stupid Cables & Wires

Stupid Cables & Wires

I need a solution folks, surely there must be something out there for this problem. These stupid cables and wires for my computer stuff are driving me nuts. I’ve seen all sorts of suggestions for just keeping them bundled together, but a bigger problem is getting them where you want them to go to start with. They are thick cables … Continue Reading →
Unlimited Recipes Online

Unlimited Recipes Online

I thought I would start on ongoing post about all the great places to find recipes online. We are constantly trying new things at our house, usually at least 2 new dinner recipes per week if not more. Most I find online. Some are from TV shows, but of course, I go online to their website to find the printable … Continue Reading →

Nine West Knifeworks

Ok, I’ve seen these knives on a few different blogs now. They are very cool! Make sure to go take a look around on Nine West Knifeworks to see the different styles. I really like the Phoenix models with Granite handles, but I also love those beautiful Fusionwood handle color, especially the Ruby, Peacock, Flamenco, Fourth of July, and Jessica. Continue Reading →
Survey of American Jewish Language

Survey of American Jewish Language

I just finished taking this survey. You do not have to leave any personal contact info on it if you don’t want to. You can leave an email if you want the results at the end though. I found it interesting because we have a close friend who is Jewish and from New York who has taught us all sorts … Continue Reading →

ZoneAlarm & Microsoft Problem…Part III

ZoneAlarm & Microsoft Problem…Part III

Well I am pretty impressed with ZoneAlarm for getting on this and trying to keep their users up-to-date. If you didn’t notice, we even had someone (Melinda Byerley) stop by and leave some comments on my last post about this even. That was pretty nifty I thought. So, for all of you that I talked to on the phone about … Continue Reading →

Make a sandscape on your screen

This is a very cool time waster! You can make a sandscape (remember those cool layers of colored sand in a jar types things) on your monitor. Click here and then click the small box at the upper left for directions. Just play a bit and you will figure it out. It’s very cool! Continue Reading →
PC Gaming Headset

PC Gaming Headset

My son picked up a new Logitech Precision PC Gaming Headset last night from our local GameStop for $29.99. I am surprised at the difference in sound from his old one. My son and my husband both play World of Warcraft and use Ventrilo to talk to each other and their other guild members. With my husband’s computer in the … Continue Reading →
ZoneAlarm & Microsoft Problem…Continued

ZoneAlarm & Microsoft Problem…Continued

Right now the ZoneAlarm site is recommending you download their newest versions listed on the Security Advisory here (I use the ZoneAlarm Basic Firewall version). It’s not overly clear to me though if it’s ok to re-download the patch in question from Microsoft. I’m hoping they are working on things still and will re-word the solutions next week.Read my first … Continue Reading →
