Ah…that’s what I’m talkin about

I got a little frustrated last night when I realized that my theme was doing weird things and that I had to change. What I ended up realizing is that all I needed to do was deactivate a plugin that served zero purpose. That allowed me to move back to this theme, which is so easily manipulated. Because of that, I added something fun. Margaritas anyone?

Green Woman

I wanted to find a picture of Green Man for spring, but found this lovely picture of Green Woman. I thought this would be a nice way to welcome in spring, and give mother nature a little hint (snow day here today).

Yes, More Changes

You have to know by now that whenever I’m on a break for a while I end up changing the theme here. For now, this one will stay. It actually changes. Right under the photo to the right, there are three boxes. Click on each one to see which you like best. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hot or Not Special Edition

This is a very special, and extensive, edition of Mark‘s Hot or Not. I’ve done a lot of research for this, so I hope you like it.

This edition is older women. However, instead of just posting the pictures of how they look now, I am posting “then” pictures as well. Maybe you like them now but didn’t then or maybe you liked them then but don’t now. You decide.

Without further ado, in alphabetical order…Hot or Not?

An Interview

On Mark’s suggestion, after being interviewed himself, I requested an interview with Gail from Rubicon3. These are the questions she asked of me…

1. If you were completely blind but could see for one hour each week, how would you spend that hour?

I would spend that hour in the presence of my children. There are few things in life that give me more pleasure than seeing in their eyes the world around them. I think I could get a really good grasp on what I was missing by doing only that.

2. You are going to bury a time capsule which will be opened 200 years from now. What three items would you include to give people an idea of life in the early 2000’s?

1. The most current New York Times Sunday edition
2. A list of average prices (median house, car, food, etc. prices)
3. A media player loaded with the top 100 songs (the reason I would put the player in is because technology moves so fast, you never know what’s going to be playing media in 200 hundred years)

3. If you heard someone described as a “good soul,” what would you assume that meant?

Someone with internal radiance, compassion, kindness and empathy.

4. What are your three favorite books and three favorite movies?

Books
1. Watership Down
2. The Source: A Novel
3. The Hidden Life Of Dogs

Movies…
1. Like Water for Chocolate
2. Keeping the Faith
3. The Adventures of Indiana Jones – The Complete DVD Movie Collection

5. You have won an all expenses paid 4-week summer vacation to anywhere you choose – as many places as you would like to go during that time period. Describe your itinerary and what you would most like to see and do.

Well, let me first say that I hate rigid itineraries. Second, I would pick New Zealand and Australia, but since this is a summer vacation, it’s winter in those areas. So, I’d have to go with Hawaii. I’d spend the entire 4 weeks there exploring as many, if not all, the islands I could. If we’re talking money as no object, I’d stay in villas on the water. I’d adore seeing and feeling the black sand beaches and hidden coves. There’s great hiking possibilities there and definitely good swimming. I’d try to be a part of some luaus and campfires on the beach at night. It would be a combination of relaxation and adventure.

A New Look

This one fits my mood more.

I’ve added some really cool things like the SnapShots, though Mark hates it. I think it’s cool for getting an idea of the site to which your going, and in some cases might not need to go to if you can see in the preview what the author means.

I also have the nifty “Most Popular Talk.” I had no idea that the Sears Sucks post had 241 comments. Mirena is catching up. A lot of women are having problems with it. Mine works just fine now. ๐Ÿ˜‰

So, I’m going to try to write more here in the future. Life is pretty crazy right now and I don’t think I’ve shared the magnitude of that with most of you.

Have a great day and come back to visit!
