April 26, 2017

One thing I have learned from living with a geek like Mr. Ken is that there is never an end to the new computer parts. I can’t complain though since I feel there is never an end to new exercise DVDs. 🙂 Mr. Ken’s latest “toy” is a backlit keyboard! One may ask why a […]

A very dear friend left me a surprise Easter basket this weekend.  And guess what was in it?  A fluffy pink Peep!  Note the very apropos Easter egg design on the Peep. Does life get any better than this?  I must admit I had been admiring this adorable little fuzzy for some time and almost […]

I had to get two new tires for my car. What did I do? Of course I asked Mr. Ken, the car guy, to help me. His words to me were “Toyo.” What? Is that short hand for Toyota? Nope, it’s a type of tire. Since small cars have small tires, the tires should be […]
