A Review of the Microsoft Arc Wireless Keyboard

January 22, 2011

4 Comments

I literally burn through computer keyboards and mouses. I work online all day, and really give my computer peripherals a workout. I generally burn through three mouses and two keyboards a year. The best keyboard I’ve ever used is the wired Apple Aluminum– it’s performed marvelously and is very comfortable. Unfortunately, I have a Windows […]

January 19, 2011

My dear friend Karen posted about another one of those Internet quizzes, “How Compassionate Are You?” It’s just a simple little quiz, and I didn’t take it, actually. But it got me thinking. I thought about Jesus, in the scripture where it says: Matthew 15:32 Jesus called his disciples together and told them, “I feel […]

I saw this video by an engineer– and who am I to question an engineer, right? — but after watching this video, I have to disagree with the guy. It’s a rather long video, but take a minute to watch it and tell me what you think… I think the flaw in this “Queueing Theory” […]

Why High Schools Should Not Prepare Students For College

January 14, 2011

My husband passed this video along to me. He plays guitar, and finds this song hilariously funny. And it IS funny. The first 20, 30 times, that is. After that, it gets kinda old. It’s by Ray Stevens, that barrel of laughs himself. As a favor to you, my dearly devoted reader, I’ll post the […]
