Technology - A Love/Hate Relationship

Posted by on in Other Stuff
I find it so incredibly frustrating when technology companies come out with updated software versions. Why can't anything be easy? This week we migrated to Outlook 2013 (yes - it is 2014!!!). Why? I'm not really sure and although it will be fine in the end - I wish we could go back! Since we migrated from Outlook 2010 to 2013 on Tuesday a whole host of issues arose! First, my phone wouldn't get the emails properly - that was fixed... Continue reading

Smile – It IS Contagious

Posted by on in Other Stuff
We’ve all heard it before – smiling is contagious. But is it really? This is one experiment I think everyone should try for themselves. I’ve been doing it today and I want you to try it tomorrow. Tomorrow, I want you to walk around with a great BIG SMILE on your face. People will wonder what you are up to because you are smiling so big. Some may ask – some may just smile back at you.

We've been Robbed

Posted by on in Other Stuff
As the name of the blog implies.... It is always something!!!  This week we were robbed!!  Can you believe it...someone actually came in our home and took our stuff!!  It is so hard for me to comprehend that someone would just steal someone else's stuff.  Who does this?  Do these people not have parents to teach them right from wrong?  Or maybe they know the difference and simply chose to ignore their conscience. We're lucky though.  No one was hurt and... Continue reading
