Lovely airport adventures & ticket counter scare tactics

So as you may have read, I just got back from California… Yesterday! I had a blast with Amanda and her family and had an awesome time at Disneyland. The flight to California was pretty uneventful and very nice, actually. I had tossed around the idea of just taking a carry on, so that I […]

Install Add In Tools for Microsoft Office

I use Microsoft Office on a daily basis. I love it! When I bought my new laptop that had Office 2007 on it, I was utterly confused. What a big difference Word is on the new platform. It does take some getting used to, that’s for sure. If it is so different, then why upgrade […]


I am not sure there is any permanent weight loss cure, other than watching what you eat and of course – moderation! I have heard about ephedra and have thought about looking in to it. I am all about extra energy that doesn’t make me jittery. I saw that the Chinese discovered ephedra more than […]
