Spooooky!

Comments Off on Spooooky!

I think I’d freak if my cat acted like this with me. The camera guy seemed to take it all in stride, even enjoy it. There is no shortage of funny cat videos on the Internet. In this one, a young kitty looks like he’s trying to play red light green. He’s not, though. He’s […]

Oh my gosh! I made the mistake of letting my kids see this. I’m doomed, lol. See more funny videos and TBT Videos at Today’s Big Thing. Pretty cool, huh? I’ll bet the office supply budget went through the roof after this…

Hurricane Ike Hits the Bureaucratic Fan

September 22, 2008

4 Comments

Well, here’s a consequence to Hurricane Ike I never dreamed possible, all the way across the continent in Upstate New York: the bureaucracy. My medical insurance company is unreachable and cannot approve my scheduled MRI (an MRI is like an x-ray). Why? Because the insurance center is in Texas; and because of the hurricane, the […]

I am expressing my apologies to all my friends. Everyone has been writing some really cool posts and photos, and sending me emails and commenting here on this blog and my other blogs… but I’m just so tired. I read the stuff, and in my mind I have all these replies, but I can’t seem […]

Comments Off on Ron Paul– Right Again

I love Ron Paul. I am going to write his name in when I vote in November. He’s been absolutely right on every thing he’s talked about concerning our nation. And now, with the financial disaster that is at our feet and the government hell-bent on making it worse, we can go back in time […]

I was laying in bed, moaning and groaning (my back is acting up again today, wah) before my Lenovo Thinkpad, and decided to drop Entrecards. I visited my friend Carole’s blog as I customarily do, and was I shocked to see this: I’d helped Carole with some graphic design for her new geocaching blog, and […]

Books for the Arts

September 20, 2008

1 Comment

Am I weird? I consider the study of languages to be in the “Art” category. When I think of art, I think not only of crayons and watercolors, but dance and music and patterns and the ways humans express themselves in communication. So I classify our language courses as “art.” The kids have excellent language […]

Tainted Baby Formula From China

September 19, 2008

2 Comments

This is just DESPICABLE. Dairy farmers in China have dumped toxic melamine into the milk to make the protein content appear higher. This is milk used for baby formula, for pete’s sake! There was a HUGE hoo-hah over Chinese melamine dumped into pet food; has anyone heard about this poisoning of baby formula? Thank God […]

Bead All About It!

September 19, 2008

Comments Off on Bead All About It!

Before I joined Entrecards, I had no idea how many people were nuts about “beading.” I didn’t even know it was a crafting hobby in of itself. I just thought beads were for, well, beading. But not beading, ya know what I mean? I used to do crafts as a kid and a young lady. […]
