When a Politician is Born, Apparently a Woman Gets Saved.

Obama Election Night

I really try to steer away from political discussions here, but the political ad I saw today was enough to jumpstart me right out of blogger hibernation. Full disclosure, I am a lefty. If after reading that fact about me, you like me less, then I guess we weren’t meant to be.  I was raised […]

How could one little yellow thing cause so much trouble?  Pancreatic Cancer has been top of mind lately with the recent death of Steve Jobs. Steve was a man who contributed his immeasurable brillance to technology and influenced the ways humans communicate and share their lives. He was an innovator, a genius but most heart-breaking […]

Potty Training for the Mobile Elite

Why haven’t I been posting lately you ask?  I made a conscious effort to scale back my social media content sharing to tackle this biotch they call potty training! If someone had told me that I would one day be showing a little boy how to “hold it” so that he doesn’t spray the entire […]

Current Status: Borrowing Luck

When I was a little girl my mom’s nickname for me was worry wart because I worried about everything. I chewed my nails down to the nub worrying about my grades, even though I got all A’s.  I even worried about my dog getting taken by the Sausage Man when she was outside late at […]

Get a Screaming Deal on an HP TouchPad for $99…Maybe

Slo Mo is a Go

I recently got a new camera and have been experimenting with photography again. The shutter is incredibly fast, even when set to auto, and as a result I have gotten some pretty sweet action shots that I would normally have missed with my iPhone or my old point and shoot camera. This one from the […]

Best Friends Forever, Like the Fox and the Hound

Even before this incident, I had been trying to get Jack off the iPad a bit, and it was kind of  like getting a drunk off the sauce. It is not that I don’t want him using it, it was just becoming his only friend. He would wake up the the morning, come into our […]

Shattered Mobility

Shattered iPad Screen

Saturday morning we had big plans to go to the river to let the dog swim, go to the adult soap box derby and then go to a local street fair for some eats and photo opps. Well we made it to the River and then plans,  as they often do, changed when Jack shattered […]

Space Traveling Legos

Like most kids, my boys love Legos. It is probably their only toy that will never get old to them. They get sick of their train table, cars, bikes, sandbox, art supplies and dare I say it even the iPad. Legos are different, they can play with them for hours.  Jack especially loves to build […]
