I sold some stuff on an online auction site recently. I haven’t sold anything in a long time, so I naturally stuck with my traditional “low prices” and “free shipping” offers. Oh dear, that was a big mistake. For one, even though the items were listed at very low prices and the stuff got a […]

As I journey through the vast nothingness that is the Internet, I collect the funniest photos for you, so you don’t have to. Enjoy! Oh how true it is. I had an uncle who was a brilliant English teacher, and he loved his job. But sometime in the 1990s, education changed, he said. It was […]

Oh, anybody can read fast. I can read very fast (skimming) but I don’t retain the data when I read that fast. The key is understanding what you read! I found an interesting test (thanks for the link, Karen!) that tests how quickly you read AND comprehend. I think it’s a pretty cool test. Here […]

Comments Off on Lenovo’s ThinkVision LT1421 – Wow!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Lenovo for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. I’m a computer monitor FREAK. Some people obsess over their floors, others over their clothing. Me, I am a monitor NUT. I suppose it’s because a large chunk of my day, every day, is spent staring […]

From the doldrums to a massive tsunami of activity… yowsa, it’s been CAH-RAZEEE around here. Maybe it’s the sudden burst of warm weather? Not sure.

Late start to the day. I stayed up far too late last night and slowly crawled out of bed about (unintelligible) o’clock. That’s one of the perks about working at home. It’s also one of the downfalls, because you have no real blood-pressuring schedule and therefore you tend to overwork to make up for lost […]

I love my GPS. I really do. But some days…. POW, right in the kisser! I used to wrangle with paper maps. And once I opened one of those things, I could NEVER fold it back up. NEVER. It was like the Rubik’s Cube to me. HOW THE HECK DO YOU DO THIS, AGAIN?!?! In […]

This week is short and sweet. I’m busy as all get-out and the cat has got it in her head at this minute to go tearing around the house, and looks like I have to do some damage control….. 1. What is on your bedside table? Box of Kleenex, iPhone charger, iPad, iPad stand. I […]
