This Just Might Work!

Ever since I quit full-time blogging, I’ve slowly disengaged myself from the computer screen. The transition became complete when I got my smartphone and tablet. Thanks to apps, I really don’t need to sit in front of the computer anymore. I can read news, listen to audiobooks, check the weather and email and social networks, […]

Coming Up to Breathe

April 1, 2013


As a kid, I watched a lot of sports competitions and programs on television. While I was never an enthusiast for swimming competitions, I remember being filled with awe as I watched the swimmers race across the pool. They seemed like googly-eyed fish, spurting across the surface of the water and taking the tiniest of […]

Cool Phone Apps That Should Be Created, But Never Will

Comments Off on Cool Phone Apps That Should Be Created, But Never Will

Oh, the smartphone. How I love thee. I can do almost anything on the thing: search the web, convert international currency, play the guitar and piano and drums, blog and read blogs, see in the dark, plan meals, and do much more! The kids and I were lamenting, however, over some glaring omissions in the […]

My New Ubokia Marketplace!

Comments Off on My New Ubokia Marketplace!

I don’t know about you guys, but my experiences on some of the other popular auction and marketplace websites have been a total FAIL. I won’t name them, but one of them starts with an “e” and another ends with “list.” You just never know what you’re going to get with those places because you […]

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Newport Beach for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. About this time last year, we took a wonderful vacation to Virginia. The kids got to see the Atlantic Ocean for the first time. Oh, how I love the ocean! Someday, I hope to treat […]

Comments Off on Manic Monday Disenchantment

I started out participating in Manic Monday meme with some exuberance, but I think I am going to quit. For the past few weeks, the questions have been real stinkers, asking what I’d like to be reincarnated as, who I’d like to get romantic with if I could, etc. :-p I thought it was going […]

Manic Monday #122

June 23, 2008


I missed the last two MM, one on purpose (didn’t like the questions) and then on accident (it was Wednesday before I realized it had been Monday and Tuesday). I figured if I didn’t do today’s, I’d lose my momentum and get lost in the Manic Monday Time Warped Black Hole and never do it […]

Comments Off on Manic Monday #118

It’s Memorial Day, so I’m not doing much blogging today; plus, I’m not feeling so well today :-p so I am late with my Manic Monday. I’ll do what I can and still make it interesting. The questions are very thoughtful; it’s just that I don’t feel like thinking today. Do good things come to […]

It’s Monday! You know what that is! Woooooo! OK, so maybe I am a little over excited. But I am sitting in the orthodontist’s waiting room, and I have nothing better to do right now! (Thank God for wireless). If you knew that every minute of the next 24 hours of your life would be […]
