A Serious Gift

Comments Off on A Serious Gift

Holidays are filled with such silliness! I love gag gifts just as much as anyone, but sometimes it’s really great to get or give a “serious” gift. Do you have any friends or family expecting a baby? A foot massager can be a cool gift, or another can opener… but if you are looking for […]

Comments Off on Buy Wholesale? Overseas?

My stepdad used to run a variety store, and he bought stuff wholesale. Sometimes he would take me or one of my brothers on the long trip to the “big city” (Buffalo or Watertown, NY) where he would walk through these enormous warehouses and fill the van with stuff. It was a really neat experience. […]

I’m blog hopping tonight and seeing people complain how “freezing” they are– at 25 degrees F! LOL! Here in New York, that’s tropical weather! šŸ˜‰ I’m jesting. 25 degrees is a little chilly. I get cold when it gets below 15. And it’s been below 15 for a good solid 4 to 5 days now. […]

I complained yesterday that I was feeling somewhat bored and not very creative. My kitten, Olivia, must have sensed my brief discontent, because she decided to make things a little exciting around here today. She has this habit of climbing on my desk and walking in front of me while I type. She also tries […]

I love surveys. I seem to have an abundance of opinions that just love to bubble up and overflow. If I can make a little bit of cash doling out my effluence of opinions, hey, all the better! This is a coffee survey, brought to you by scenarioDNA in New York. You do the survey […]

My daughter sent me this link, a video by the Anglican Boys’ Choir, Libera. OMG. These boys are… like angels. WOW. This music makes me float. Apparently, Libera has done several CDs. I’m going to get some! Wouldn’t their music be perfect in the background for Christmas Day? We like to listen to classical music […]
