*sighs* Ever have one of those days?! One of those days where you have a ton of things to do, where you need your energy level to be humming, your desk to be cleaned, your fingers to be typing just right? It’s not working for me today. I feel like I’m in the Twilight Zone […]

It’s a Steal!

Comments Off on It’s a Steal!

I’m ALWAYS nagging my friends and family to back up their computer files. This weekend, I spent TEN HOURS with my friend in Virigina– on the phone– trying to rid his computer of a horrible, zombifying computer virus. We wound up completely reformatting his computer and starting from scratch. It was quite the job. I […]

If you have left a comment here somewhere, and it was never “approved” or “published,” I have to say– with hat in hand– that I may have deleted it. But not on purpose! THE SPAMMERS MADE ME DO IT! I have been clobbered with spam. Are fellow bloggers experiencing the same as I am this […]

I Come to the Garden Alone…

I got up very early this morning again. I have been finding it difficult to adjust to the Daylight Saving Time switch, even after two/three weeks. I hate the change. I’m a very light sleeper anyway, and the time change just makes it worse. Well anyway, to every cloud there’s a silver lining, right? This […]

The Payatas Fund

March 25, 2009

2 Comments

I know I have many Filipino visitors to this blog– perhaps you already know about the Payatas children of the Philippines. These children, living in a landfill in the Smokey Mountains, pick through garbage in search of basic necessities and junk that they can sell to buy food. The Christmas For Payatas fund has been […]

My Review of Click and Climb Tutoring Service

Comments Off on My Review of Click and Climb Tutoring Service

I recently had the opportunity to check out the Click and Climb online math tutoring service. I’ve never experienced online tutoring (or any tutoring, for that matter) and wanted to give it a go. Click and Climb specializes in mathematics, although I hear they will be adding other subjects soon. Mathematics is perhaps the most […]

Comments Off on No Word for Wednesday Today :(

Things are chugging along at full-speed this week. I haven’t had a moment to sit down and give a good Word for Wednesday today. I didn’t want to toss up a poorly-contructed one. Sorry to the TWFW participants! I hope to grab some free time tonight or tomorrow morning to check out your posts.

Well, we are on the brink of Spring Cleaning here. My garage, my yard… my HOUSE is a total disaster. :-p We have a lot of work on our hands. Temperatures finally slogged up to 45 degrees here in Upstate New York– woooooo! Break out the shorts and sandals! That’s a heat wave to us! […]

Are You Afraid of Death?

March 24, 2009

Not a trick question or anything. I’m just wondering. I’ve been dropping Entrecards today, and I see a lot of posts that talk about cancer and disease. One article even said something like, “Eating Red Meat Raises Your Chances of Death!” Um, the chances of death are 100%. Yeah, death comes sooner to some than […]

Comments Off on Child Prodigies

Children have such angelic voices. šŸ˜€ Have you seen all those viral videos of kids on TV shows, kids with amazing voices? I sometimes wonder what happens to them. I mean, after gaining stardom on those glittering TV shows, do they just go home, graduate, and become Joe the Plumber or Sally the Bookkeeper? Sometimes […]
