A few years ago for my birthday, I received a veryyy nice Olympus camera from my parents. I promised myself that I would learn how to use it and hopefully in a short amount of time, I would be able to take pretty nice pictures.
Welll….that didn’t really work out. Like I said, it was a super-nice camera, but SO HARD to learn how to use! I know how to take basic pictures on it, but that’s pretty much it. Oh well, I guess good alaska piks will have to wait until I can find the time to learn how to use my camera!

For nearly 500 years, it has been one of the art world’s biggest mysteries, with even its very existence doubtful.
But now, almost 5 centuries after he painted it, a priceless Leonardo da Vinci masterpiece has been discovered in a Swiss bank vault.
In a story that seemed to come directly from the pages of a Dan Brown novel, the portrait of Italian noblewoman, Isabella d’Este, was discovered as part of a private collection in a Swiss bank.
The painting is a canvas and oil, finished rendering of a well-known pencil sketch of the same woman, the wife of the Marquess of Mantua and one of Renaissance Italy’s most influential women.

I feel lucky that I have a husband AND a son who are both quote on quote, “experts” at anything computer-related. I mean, I make my living from the computer, and I *ahem* am a bit challenged when it comes to the technical part of using a computer. I couldn’t tell you how many times I screwed something up on my computer and had to have my menfolk save the day and fix it for me.
So no, I won’t be looking on the web to print solutions at eoncode.com, I’ve got my hubby and son to handle that for me

Airplane flights could soon be a much more technology-friendly place ever since a published report suggests that all devices connected to Wi-Fi can be used on most U.S. airplanes.
I have never really been into Black Friday—-in fact, to tell you the truth, it kind of annoys me. Why? Well for starters it’s the day after Thanksgiving which is supposed to be a day of thankfulness, yeah, and then they stick Black Friday in there which basically symbolizes greed to me. So you won’t catch me trying to find the best deals for michael kors watches. I’m waiting for Cyber Monday. Much easier and you don’t even have to leave the house!

A recent study has found that children who stutter may actually have an advantage in their language skills:
Professor Reilly’s team studied just over 1,600 children from Melbourne, Australia. Their mothers filled out regular questionnaires starting when their babies were eight-months-old and the children were assessed using a range of language and behavior tests when they reached the age of four.
Diagnoses were confirmed by a speech pathologist, who then visited the homes of stuttering children every month to check on their progress. By age four, 181 of the study children had been diagnosed with a stutter.
Don’t have 100k to spend on your kitchen? Keep reading.
Here’s how kitchen designers from across the country can breathe new life into a tired kitchen with considerably less cash.
If you have $1,000
A small budget can still have a big impact
“I recommend that you make the cabinets functional by adding rollouts to your existing cabinets,” said Robin Rigby Fisher, a certified master of kitchen and bath designer in Portland, OR. “The Container Store sells these at a very good price. You want to make the kitchen functional first.”
Fisher also recommends adding new cabinet hardware. Be sure to measure the distance between the existing drilled holes and buy the same size replacement pulls.
Absolutely no cash to spend on a kitchen redo? Don’t despair. Brady reminds homeowners: “De-junking is free, cleaning your kitchen goes a long way as well.”
Sometimes I just like to browse online, looking at kitchen makeovers…you know, dreaming
One of these days I would love to completely redo my kitchen…the whole thing…Floors. Counters. Cabinets. The whole thing. But I’m sure you know that something like that would definitely NOT be cheap. From hiring people to do the whole thing, to paying for Reid Supply tooling components, it could turn out to be pretty painfully expensive.
I keep telling myself though. One of these days!!
Craziness is in full swing around these parts as we prepare the embark on our trip to Tennessee, TOMORROW! Oy. I have so much that I need to get done I don’t even know where to begin. Packing. Cooking. Cleaning…..ugh. At least the drive to Tennessee isn’t going to be as long as last year when we went to Florida— An 11-hour drive isn’t TOO bad, but still… today and tomorrow are going to be crazy, I tell you!
The craziness starts as I am just now realizing that we leave for Tennessee three weeks from today..Eeek! It’s definitely time to whip out the shopping lists!
I won’t be buying anything crazy like lr baggs venue at guitar center but I do still have a mammoth shopping trip coming up here in a few days.
We’ve been to Tennessee before but this time we’re going to the mountains..I don’t even really know what kind of clothes to pack for that!
Stay tuned! Should be interesting…;)
