Blog Schedule

I post on Monday with an occasional random blog thrown in for good measure. I do my best to answer all comments via email and visit around on the days I post.

Alternatives and Thankful Thursday

Alternatives is a recurring post in which I give synonyms for an over used word. Click on the tab above for a "complete" list of over used words.

Today's word is: - Get codes for Facebook, Hi5, MySpace and more

Easy can be used in an abundance of ways. 

Easy as in: "That test was a breeze to get through!"

Every Thursday, from now until I don't know when, I'm going to express my thankfulness, for at least ONE something.

I've chosen a picture of the Deep Field to remind us all of how precious and rare this tiny ball of dirt, that we call Earth, is. 

This is it. It's all we've got Let us be kind to Earth and each other. Let us be THANKFUL for what we have.

Today I'm thankful for HEART.

Because it's so close to Valentine's Day, it seems appropriate to give my wonderful Random Followers a few heart-felt Valentines.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

What are you thankful for? Is there an alternative for easy that you particularly like?


  1. Idiot proof - is anything really idiot proof? Because idiots usually find a way...

    Happy Valentines!
