In case, you haven’t heard, SOPA is the acronym for the “Stop Online Piracy Act.” It’s the government’s way of “fixing things.” In this case, it’s “online piracy.” But this bill is so tyrannical, so huge that it stretches it’s black tentacles into the utter regions of the Internet. It’s the lobby baby of the […]

I was doing some research today and when I clicked on a technology website, my computer went bananas. GREAT. A virus. Or trojan. Or some evil thing. :rollpin: Needless to say, I am a *little* upset. Oh yeah, and even though I religiously backup everything with superhuman zeal, I haven’t done it lately because 1.) […]

It’s only just a baby, but it’ll be all grown up before long. I created a new blog where I can be myself. No pressure to be glitzy, or fun, or entertaining, or pretty. No advertisers breathing down my neck with their demands for fast-paced, image-based content. This blog is radically different from the others, […]

My husband may be the King of One-Liners. And I laugh every.single.time. Is this the sign if a dutiful wife, or just a pitiful one? Seriously, he’s pretty witty. Or “punny,” as he calls it. And the kids are right up there with him. My daughter got a bunch of tracts from Way of the […]

Have You Tried Nopalea?

January 14, 2012

I’m always interested in healthy new drinks. I have tried the raw meal green powder drink stuff that is packed with vitamins and minerals and pink elephants and stuff… but honestly the drink tastes horrible. I couldn’t drink it anymore. There’s a new healthy drink out, called Nopalea. It comes from the Nopal cactus and, […]

Comments Off on Online Tutoring

Whether you homeschool or your child is in government school or parochial school, every kid needs one-on-one help. No textbook can provide everything the child needs, and neither can a teacher and blackboard in a room of 20+ kids. I was one of those children who would have benefited greatly from tutoring. I never got […]

Comments Off on Walgreens Eliminates the Pricey Middle Man

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. Have you noticed it yet? Have you been to Walgreens to pick up a prescription only to discover that your Express Script benefits no longer work there? The reason is failed negotiation. Express Scripts basically “wrote […]

It’s been a remarkable winter here in Upstate New York. I think my area has had a whopping 3 inches of snowfall TOTAL. As I look out my window, the sun is shining, the grass is green… yeehaw, I think I just joined Team Global Warming. *snicker* However, the weather gurus have interrupted my reverie. […]
