    I take TONS of pictures and LOVE it! And I've found over the years that I am pretty good at it! I even took my daughter's senior pictures and they were as good as, if not better, then the professional ones I saw. I bought a Kodak Easyshare probably 7 years ago and it worked ok for a while...

    Yesterday was a very hard and emotional day, but we did it. The flowers, pictures, and mementos were all done so fantasctically awesome. I think that my sister would 1) be pissed we spent so much time/money on "remembering" her, and 2) would have been pleased as peas with what we did do. There...

    And I wasn't too worried about it (DH is running recovery software on it and I have a spare I can use), at least until I went to start cooking today. Then I realized all my recipes are on the hard drive! ACK! Well, we'll manage, I think. There are instructions on the turkey and we can figure...

    For those not friends with me on Facebook.. Sometimes crap happens and it makes angrier than a hornet, become cynical and you lose your faith in humanity. Well, that happened yesterday to us. My father in law, an avid 76 y/o hunter, went out to his deer blind at the back of our property...

    I was out weeding the garden when an Amish buggy pulled in the yard. It was an older gentleman and a young couple. The older gentleman joked and said if I sold him my house they would weed my garden :) He asked if we were interested in selling. I told him we planned to sell for something...

    This is the top of all our news bulletins this morning as well as on the BBC. Don't know if you heard about this but it was on our evening news - on top of Spain and Italy possibly needing a bailout, Cyprus will not be far behind since things are just as bad there. Where will this all end...

    Well I was wondering when our "emergency" would happen, yesterday we had some light to medium rain and a few bit of thunder nothing major sounding really, but next thing you know BAM huge flash of white and loud bang, half the house went out power wise. Oddly one half was still on even, went and...

    Not exactly where to put this, so I think the "general" area is likely the best bet. Went fishing with the family for the first time of the year yesterday (been out a couple of times on my own). We've been building a deck on the back of the house, little by little, over the past week and a...

    Isn't there a saying that goes something like 95% of what you worry about never comes to pass? I've found that to be very true. The last two and a half years, I was under some serious stress about a situation that I couldn't control, but I put so much energy into it anyway. The lack of sleep...
