I don’t have any memories of watching Sonny and Cher as a kid. My earliest memory of Cher is watching her as the glamorous mom in Mermaids. I loved her stage presence, and her ability to capture the attention of everyone around her. I followed her as she performed in Moonstruck [...]
When I was younger, I would frequently spend up to a week at a time alone with my grandparents. If I woke in the middle of the night, I would be soothed by the gentle ticking of the pendulum of their grandfather clock. I loved listening to the chimes every quarter hour, and [...]
Last fall I needed to find a new host for my 4 blogs. My website had previously been hosted by a friend, and something suddenly happened which meant that my blogs went down without warning and I had no way of knowing when they might come back up. I was very upset, and [...]
I have never been much of a fashionista. My oldest daughter, however, is very interested in what clothes are popular and fashionable, so I’m trying to pay a bit more attention to the topic.

My family has been enjoying the TV shows available on iTunes for a long time now, and so we were intrigued to hear about Amazon Unbox and the new option of watching movies online from Netflix.com.
However, when I looked at the system requirements for both, they both require a Windows PC. I use a [...]
I did a PayPerPost entry about Pingo calling cards at one point, and as a result I ended up with one for free. This post is NOT sponsored, though I would receive a bit of income if people click the links. After trying out Pingo, there is very little I dislike. In [...]
