Learning to Use a Computer

Guest post from: Joe Castro

My mom only learned how to use a computer recently, so I was shocked when she started recommending all these websites to me. Since she retired last year, I encouraged her to take a computer literacy course because I thought it would be nice for her to learn. My sister and I figured that she would learn the basics, but we never thought she would start doing all of her shopping and banking online too. The other day I went to her place to visit and she recommended I go to and change from cable to satellite TV. She said she was researching it and found that I could get a great deal. Then, she pulled out a box full of gifts she bought me online at a discount. I got a great pair of shoes and a dress out of it, and it wasn’t even a special occasion! I am so proud of her for learning a new skill, and really embracing it. It is so nice to see her branch out, and the fact that she is buying me gifts is just an added perk.

Time for some color

The weather is getting warmer down here, and I have lost a ton of weight.  I think it might be time for me to get some sun tanned in.  I am whiter than a sheet and well...that just looks kinda funny down here in FL


I kinda forgot about this blog, with everything that has been going on in my life.  I think I originally created this in case I lost my original blog..which just so happens.  I did.  I had totally forgotten about this one.

I'm glad this one is here, and I will remember to blog once or twice a week to keep it alive and active.

My own place

Thanks for the guest post by Jonathan Curtis

I knew I wanted to start my own business, but I just wasn’t sure what industry I wanted to do it in. My real passion was food, but that’s such a volatile, competitive field I figured it may be best to start somewhere else. I could start a writing firm, I reasoned, but that’s hard to market. What about real estate? That sounded like a good plan until the market fell out early last year. I finally ended up back and food and it was settled: I would start a cafĂ©. It had always been my dream to own a place of my own, so I registered my new business, found a good website at one of the registrars like Network Solutions or, and hired and attorney to help me with tax! es and such. We open in a week and I couldn’t be more excited – you guys tell everyone you know in Cincinnati to stop by the place opening weekend! If they mention this blog post I’ll give them a free cookie!

Trying out some dystopian lit for size

Guest post written by John Byrd

Most of the time I like crime thrillers like John Grisham and stuff like that. They're just pretty exciting and also there are a ton of them in airport bookstores, which is where I make most of my book purchases. (I fly a lot for business.)

But the last time that I was on the plane I saw this guy reading a really interesting looking book and I looked it up on my phone after we landed and learned it a was a dystopian novel. It sounded interesting I just wish that I had remembered what the title was. I went online to try and figure it out a few years ago and when I was doing that I came across the website I read through it some, sent the link to my wife and we decided to change over our internet service to the provider.

I decided to start out with the basics for dystopian lit and bought a few Kurt Vonnegut books, which I've always heard good things about.

Wow I can't believe I totally forgot about this blog. I haven't updated in months. Shame on me >smacking my typing fingers<.
The adoption is finally over and the kids are mine and safe and sound. That is a huge totally huge monkey off my back. Crazy Girl, is still in the state mental ward, and has taken to sending my husband love letters, and me totally crazy poems. I did call the hosptial and asked them to please put a stop to it. I also told them that I am a bit nervous about her. I don't trust her, and she has a very violent side. I guess, there isn't much I can do about it while she is locked up, but I am worried that when she gets out, she might try to find us.

How to deal with a loonie bird

This whole past week has been totally insane. I don't know how I managed to get thru it . Assholes GF is now back in the looney bin, and man, we all went thru hell dealing with her. I'm an emotional mess right much on my mind, so many things to worry about. My angels being the first thing on my mind.

Mom's Day

Yesterday was Mother's Day. I spent the day, at my mothers of course. We brought dinner to my mom's so she didn't have to cook, and spent the day outside around the pool swimming. One of my sisters had came down from PA to visit with my mom also, so it was a pretty nice day. I took a ton of photo's but I haven't uploaded them to my computer yet, so I guess you will have to wait to see them on my other blog ;)

Gifts For Mothers Day

Mother's Day is coming up and once again, I am looking on line for a gift for my mom. Buying for her keeps getting more and more difficult. The woman has everything, or at least everything that she wants. So, I am thinking what can I buy that is useful. Then I got the bright idea, how about some perfume! Can't go wrong with perfume right?

So, I started to look around the web to see what I could find. I was thinking maybe perfume gift sets would be nice. But I couldn't remember what fragrance she liked. I was thinking it was kate moss perfume but I wasn't sure.

So I called her. Guess what! She can't wear perfume anymore because she has asthma and smells set it off. Now, I feel horrible, because I should have known that. So, I have no idea what I am getting my mother for Mother's Day!

Keep or close

I feel so bad about this blog here. Most of the time I forget that it's here. I'm debating on whether to close it up, or not. I hate to give it up. It was my baby until I got a .com.

I will have to think about it and see if there isn't some thing I can differently on here.
