twitter tuesday: Impostors!

Unless you’re the one raking in money from the duped masses, chances are good that you don’t like spam. Estimates say that nearly 80-90% of all incoming e-mail these days is from spam senders. Thank goodness most of them haven’t...

weekend wrap-up: on the 7th day

Compared to Saturday, Sunday was actually pretty tame. I didn’t get to bed until late the previous night, so I slept right on through the time change, though the change in light outside was pretty easy to notice. In an...

weekend wrap-up: Halloween!

The past few years I’ve been going into Halloween with no real plans, but seeing what comes of the evening. I don’t do costumes unless I’ve been invited to a costume party and I really don’t enjoy going out to...

weekend wrap-up: bake sale!

I was tagged in 6 Facebook photos following this weekend. I’m pretty sure that’s a record for me! And rather than bore you in one long post about the weekend, it’s only fitting that I instead bore you in a...
