Comments Off on Facebook Frivolities

As much as I hate all the “political” posts by folks on Facebook — especially those Obama-Is-My-Savior posts — I do also hate the emphasis on frivolity, too. So when I saw this poster, I chuckled… All is fair in love and war, you know. šŸ˜‰

Everything Is Running in Slo-Mo This Week

August 30, 2012


CANNOT believe it’s Thursday. Oh my gosh. What on earth have I been doing this week?! ** The daughter and I have been making drapes for the living room windows. I am so out of practice, it’s sad. I can’t seem to sew in a straight line anymore. :-p But the curtains will eventually look […]

Oh, you’ve heard me say it long and loud: everything we do online is monitored, and it’s heinous. Our online information and activities is much more than a data collection for targeted advertising, it’s social engineering and a means to control us.

It’s a Good Time

August 17, 2012


I’ve heard it said that southerners think we northeners are like ants. We scurry about, hurryhurryhurry, to get things done — such silly northerners, why don’t you slow down and enjoy things for a while?

I gave my daughter my nice Otterbox iPhone case because… well, because I am a generous, kind, loving soul. :luvs: Also because I spotted a dirt cheap case on eBay and I wanted to get it! It’s called the “iFace Revolution” iPhone case and it’s a really, really nice case. It took THREE WEEKS to […]

Parking FAIL

July 10, 2012


It’s always a nail-biting white-knuckled purgatory an adventure when I drive around certain areas of Central New York State. Take this morning, for example. I was only out and about for two hours or so, as the son had an appointment. Within that brief two-hour span, however, I gained 50 additional gray hairs and the […]

As a kid, I LOVED paper airplanes. I could never make them correctly. Mine were always haphazardly folded, crumpled, and they always flew wonky. They never seemed to make it past my nose.
