I, like so many of us, need to get more exercise. I sit at a computer all day at work. Then, I go home and spend half the evening on one. This new item could be just what I need. 😉
I’ve begun another paid writing gig online. I’m helping “seed” entries in a new information site. It’s a bit unusual and interesting. Check it out! It’s called Bessed.com (pronounced “best.”)
It’s just more money to fund my addiction to making jewelry – with no guilt!! 😉
My goofy co-worker and friend, Jonathan, just sent me this. I figure it can only mean one of two possible things:
1. The plague of the locusts is much worse than we thought and life as we know it is soon to come to an end…
2. This poor unfortunate bug got photographed when it was on the camera lens.
I’m torn…you be the judge. 😉
This lovely watch bracelet is made from dazzling clear AB & blue 4 mm Swarovski crystals. The watch face is sterling silver and the clasp is a beautiful sterling silver toggle.
This fellow jolter has a blog called Inside Motherhood. She recently posted about all those annoying spam “pass-it-on” emails we all hate to get. You know the ones. They tell us 100 new ways to use our Coca-Cola, reiterate the latest crazy urban legends as if they were real, tell us that we need to forward them to 10 people including the person who sent them or something bad could happen, tell of how Microsoft is going to pay us all big bucks…. The list is endless.
I personally don’t need to know another 50 ways to use my dryer sheets. I like using them in the dryer and that’s good enough for me. 🙂
Since we found out that there is no kid with a terminal illness who is collecting the world’s most business cards and that hypodermic needles are too big to fit in the change slot in vending machines (so it really is ok to stick your finger in to get the change) and all the other goofy things, these emails are just annoying.
And I’d like to add one more. The emails that have a file attachment with a powerpoint presentation of landscape photos, sappy one-liners and a music background. They fill up the inbox, usually are not worth the time to download, open and let them play and are just a little too suger-sweet for my palate. They go in the trash without being opened most of the time. If I want to see that sort of thing, I’ll rent a video. Besides, these things are great ways to transfer computer viruses.
Don’t get me wrong. I love to hear from my friends. Email is a great way to keep in touch even when in other countries. I enjoy the humorous quotes and jokes too (as long as they aren’t hurtful to someone.) But the rest are nothing more than a different type of spam to most of us.
Next time, just leave me off the list for those kinds of messages. I’d rather hear how you are doing.

This beautiful sterling silver charm bracelet is adorned with white and pink freshwater pearls, 4 mm Swarovski crystals, etched glass beads and sterling silver beads. It has a cute heart shaped sterling silver charm at the clasp and even has a safety clasp.
This looks like it could give us all a lot of exchanged links. Why not join up with me and let’s see?
