I don’t think this was what Vince Shilomi had in mind during his infomercial for ShamWow! Today was our friend Scott’s birthday and as a gift, our friends bought ShamWows and made them into pants.

So you thought it would be a great idea to have your Tweets show up on Facebook? I thought the same thing. But then I realized that I didn’t want Tweets popping up on Facebook. I just thought it was rude to inundate friends on Facebook with tons of tweets.  They are different forms of […]

My new must read…

He and Lynn did it!  I do believe I could do a little happy dance around my computer.  I haven’t been so happy that two people have come together since reading about Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth.  I have not become a voyeur mom, so don’t worry. I have been reading a personal blog lately that […]
