Shoes, Glorious Shoes!

Comments Off on Shoes, Glorious Shoes!

I have a daughter turning 18 soon (I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT) and another who is a boot nut. lol. That came out funny. It means she loves boots. Not the uncomfortable, high-heeled, Mary Poppins boot that all the “in” girls are wearing (and mangling their feet in)– leather style Minnetonka boots! Isn’t this style absolutely […]

Good grief! Is it just me, or does it take horrendously long to upload a video to YouTube these days? I have noticed that it takes 2- 3x longer to upload a measly video! Maybe I should try out Flickr’s new video feature. Anyway, the kids wanted me to take a video of their kooky […]

I’ve been reading numerous blogs these days, thanks to Entrecard, and I have to say I am so green with envy that I want to pack my bags and find some cheap flights to Hong Kong right NOW! I can’t BELIEVE how many blogs are by Asians! And they make their food and countries look […]

Play the Name Game

Comments Off on Play the Name Game

I’ve seen this meme running around, but it hasn’t hit me yet. I thought I’d jump the gun and play now! It looks fun! I removed the references to family names, as lots of websites stupidly use family names for security codes. Sometimes I wonder if memes are just another data harvesting tool… why offer […]

The Evolution of the Blog

Comments Off on The Evolution of the Blog

I was surfing Entrecard blogs last night, and was paying close attention to the writing style of most of them. I came to realize that the common blog has certainly evolved. Have you noticed? Initially, the blog was truly a “web log,” a public place to post expressions, personal thoughts and experiences. That was way […]

A Review of Chic Street

Comments Off on A Review of Chic Street

Chic Street-Fashion Forward is a simple, classy, sleek blog for the fashionistas of the world. I’m no fashionista, but I do admire good design when I see it. Chic Street uses a popular magazine-style WordPress theme for the blog, which gives the blog a lot of content. I love the theme. My only complaint is […]

I saw this at That Grrl (a really witty and fun blog to read) and wanted to do it. I don’t know it if is part of a meme or not. Sometimes I see memes on other people’s blogs that I SO want to do, but no one invites me. šŸ™ So I’ll throw a […]

Comments Off on Ordering Contact Lenses Online

I’ve bought eyeglasses online. Yes I have! They’ve worked out very well. But I’m sick of wearing glasses. I’m dabbling– for the first time in my life after wearing glasses for 35 years!– into the liberating world of contact lenses! I’ve been shopping around and came across Acuvue Oasys at 1-800-GET-LENS. What a difference! Why […]

Happy Independence Day, America!

Comments Off on Happy Independence Day, America!

“What a glorious morning this is!” — Samuel Adams (to John Hancock at the Battle of Lexington, Massachusetts, 19 April 1775) This day is the day Americans (well, citizens of the state of Massachusetts, anyway) STARTED the fight for American independence! Woohooo! I know, July 4, 1776, is THE day Congress officially declared it. But […]

Are You Privileged?

Comments Off on Are You Privileged?

I came across this very interesting self-quiz on History is Elementary. A few weeks ago as I was visiting many of the teacher blogs I have on one of my blogrolls at History Is Elementary I saw The Privilege Meme over at Confessions From the Couch. I thought it was interesting. Miss A explains this […]
