Thanks for catching that Kris0218

One con I discovered while getting my cards ready for mail out is the lickable adhesive on the envelope is not very sticky. I've had to use tape to make sure the envelopes stay closed. Just a heads up!

Apologies. I always want to put on "s" at the end of her name for some reason. Maybe it's b/c I wish there had been more than one of her.

@kaete, there needs to be legislation that prohibits that kind of stuff. I feel like there should be lights out mandates in towns in order to preserve the natural beauties of the galaxy.

@Trish1980 and Lizzykewl,
Both great ideas! Thanks!


Three Ways to Protect Floors from Heavy Desks and Chairs

I appreciate your comments, but I disagree with your assessment that profanity is a crude verbal crutch. Strong language is a great way to add emotion to a sentiment. In the case above, it was used to express frustration over an ever-expanding to do list. I'm not sure what you three are upset about, the word "damn" or the combination of "god" and "damn," but if it's the latter I apologize for any religious insensitivity. That said, I stick by my right to use slightly obscene language in my posts when appropriate.


Poketo Helps You Keep Track of Daily Tasks with Paper!

@jmorri26 If you find any services that are less expensive please let us know (I like to think I have more than half a brain cell...).

Printing onto canvas is a bit more complicated than printing standard paper prints, which is why I believe pricing is higher. The turkey print (24x36) was $179, while the kissing photo (18x24) was $99. Also, they have a lifetime guarantee, so your investment will be protected from fading or any other age issues.

@ansela, I find that newer gadgets may be built just as well (if not better) than old tech, but the aesthetic detail has gone a bit downhill. Plastics are being overused in my opinion. Old SLRs were made from much hardier materials that look less like toys than examples of great engineering.

Great thought on your second point. I'm always putting my phone and camera away in protective bags because I worry about something happening to them, which may be why I like to display analog versions on my mantle :)

@anthonyn DO IT! I've been so impressed with the work you posted via Facebook. Would love to see one of them large and in charge! Your work would look especially sweet in canvas form, rather than just a glossy print.

@beyourownsavior, I think you could still hold the handle and get the cord in there without touching the hot front.

@ek76, true retractables are an option but this one could just stay out and look pretty when you're done...

@Barry1, do you know that for sure or are you guessing? If for sure would love to read where you found this out. I'm fascinated with this guy's lifestyle!

@yespositively, it does come with a little recipe book of about 6 recipes.

@AnnePatterson, thanks for the tip! I'm going to try that. So far we've only done vanilla and vanilla with chocolate chips. Next up is an experiment making pumpkin!

The Go Duster infomercial is classic. So many weird sexual innuendos when that thing is used with a vase.

@Jose A
That looks like a pretty wicked phone, but ever since I tried out a Motorola Pebl, which I wanted to shove up some Motorola exec's derriere out of frustration, I've been scared to go back to them. I still miss my old Nokia candybar from 2000...

@greenideas: I remember when that phone was announced. I was so excited and then waited and waited and waited for it to finally make it to the states. Did it ever come here? Motorola kept being so vague about it.
