Neat Finds

Where, Exactly, Do I Live?


As I said before, I am now playing with my new Flickr account. Anyway, I’ve been playing with it and decided to try to set some locations of the pictures I had. So, I was looking on their map and then I thought, “Hmmm… Um. What continent do I live on??? I’m confused…” See what Read More

Do You Want to Swap Your iPhone?


Even thought I don’t personally own an iPhone, my husband has graced me with the pleasure of using his on occasion (assuming my hands are clean with no residue that would require excessive cleansing of the screen). Today, I saw for the first time the iPhone’s big competitor, the chocolate by Verizon. I mean, check Read More

Which to Choose?


I recently agreed to do an e-Rewards program where I fill out occasional surveys and then receive free stuff and “cash” that I can spend at stores. On my second survey, they were gathering information about how I use the web, and I was given this question: Gee. Do all of those search sites still Read More

Sesame Street Gold


Josh had been talking about ways to connect with the baby. With today’s Dora the Explorer, Elmo’s World, etc., I think Josh was questioning how he would be able to connect with these. That was before I struck gold. I think we may get a bunch of the characters in the “mini-plush.” Even if we Read More

Rockabye Baby! Literally.


I was looking around the iTunes store for good lullaby music for babies, and was quite disturbed/intrigued/confused/interested/befuddled/amused by the Rockabye Baby! albums. These albums are basically lullaby versions of albums by popular artists. Here are the artists featured: U2, The Beatles, Radiohead, Bob Marley, Pink Floyd, Smashing Pumpkins, Led Zeppelin, The Eagles, Coldplay, Tool, The Read More

Musical Trends & One Good Find


My students usually make me a list now and again to help me pick new music to play in my classroom. Usually I find a few bands I like in the pile, and dump the others off as Brittney Spears wannabes or rappers with no respect for women. I found a few trends in the Read More

Choose Your Business Name Wisely


Josh and I have been considering starting our own business, but choosing a name is a huge decision. So, you have to look at your business model, project what you may be doing in the future (especially as technology changes effect what you do), and consider how a name encompasses what you do. Maybe that’s Read More

Gilmore Girls Ban


It’s official. After last week’s Gilmore Girl’s episode, I have officially decided to ban the show. You’re talking to a girl who owns seasons 1-6 on DVD (but I got season 6 a little begrudgingly…). The problem with Gilmore Girls is that after season 5, the characters started acting like complete idiots. Lorelai, who was Read More
