If your car’s a/c broke last summer – get it fixed now

Gosh I wish I’d known about this site, Discount AC Parts, back when my ’97 SL1’s air conditioning broke a couple years ago.  Of course mine broke just as it was starting to warm up in the spring, and where live, spring is practically summer for everywhere else, so we start running our air conditioning […]

Gearing up for Spring Cleaning?

Yeah I know – Spring is still a couple months away, and most of the country is still in the midst of Jack Frost’s wrath, but what better way to wile away the time spent hunkered down indoors than to plan out your Spring Cleaning schedule? I have seen these Space Bags advertised on televsion and […]

Merry Christmas – now here’s a cold

Oh yippee. A cold is making its rounds in our house.  I am pretty sure it started with the Kiddo – she still has it – then moved to my husband – he seems to have been hit the worst, and I am kind of teetering on the cusp of coming down with one.  I […]

Seen any good movies lately?

You can’t always go by what the “pro” movie reviewers go by when it comes to deciding whether that newest flick that is playing is worth the $12 to go see.  I mean, how do you know they’re really being honest, and weren’t handed $20k to give the movie the thumbs up if it’s absolute […]

Snail mail spam

Do you remember those old pyramid schemes?  The ones where you were sent a bulky letter in the mail, with a giant list of people and their addresses, and you were supposed to send like one dollar to the first ten or something like that, then add your name to the top of the list, […]

Thanks for the heart attack, cat!

I’m working from home today.  The Kiddo is at preschool, so all there is to bother me while I work is the neighbors dogs barking, and the annoying whine coming from my crappy work laptop. I have a pair of noise cancelling headphones that, even when they are not powered on, still do a fair […]

College just keeps getting more expensive

My senior year of high school, I received a scholorship that I could use at any of the local community colleges.  It was for $1000 per semester, and I really can’t remember whehter it covered books in addition to the classes or not.  Regardless, I do remember how expensive books were even then, and I […]

Another way to make money online – with affiliates

There are so many different ways to make money online.  If you have a product to sell, you can try your hand at your very own e-commerce site.  This often entails a lot of hard work – creating the product, photographing the product, deciding upon what you will sell the product for at retail, and […]

Did someone mess with the space time continuum

It seriously feels like today is just DRAGGING by.  I feel like I’ve been at work for at least four hours already, but nooo.  It’s only been 2.5 hours.  What the heck?? Yes it would be nice for time to slow down once in a while, but not while I am at work!  Please oh […]

Early Christmas at my house

For my husband and I, anyway.  Both of our “big gifts” arrived today, and since mine was ungainly large, we went ahead and “gave” each other our gifts.
