Oh my, I'm taking a gamble and moving over to Word Press. So far everything there is so EASY! More options, prettier layouts, easier to use. It took about 10 minutes to import my blog from here. I do have to go back and redo all my video because WP uses URLs, not all the code that is needed for blogger, so that's a bit of a pain. Oh, and my blogroll, don't feel slighted if it takes me a few days to get you moved! I'd be really happy if you updated your blogrolls to my new address- http://arollerskatingjam.wordpress.com. I'm not going to delete this baby yet, and will keep it active for a while so that I can make sure everyone finds me over at my new digs, especially since I haven't been so good at posting lately. I think the change of scenery will do me good! Come visit!

Isn't this a great idea? I used to do something similar when I had a hole along the cuff of an old sweatshirt. When it's cold out and your hands are freezing you roll down the cuffs of your Handcuffs sweatshirt and slide your hands in like fingerless gloves. When it's warmer, roll the cuffs back up and out of the way! Available at Handcuffs.net

How is it that my eyeglasses get so dirty just sitting on my face? Seriously, every day there is all sorts of schmutz on them, and lord knows I don't do anything strenuous. I'm constantly cleaning them. It's a life mystery.
One of my resolutions in the New Year, besides trying to get out of the writers block I've had (serious lack of any sort of inspiration), is to read a whole lot more. I will be doing that in one regard, since I'll be taking a technical course at school again, but I've been slacking off in the pleasure reading category as well. I intend to find some really great pleasure reads. I was perusing several lists I garnered from the NPR website, and was excited to find several good prospects. Do you have any great books to recommend?

Best Wishes to you and yours for a wonderful Christmas!
Sad Update: Eartha Kitt passed away this very Christmas from colon cancer. She was an incomparable star of song and screen. Kitt will be remembered for her sultry song stylings, movie and television roles as well as for being plainspoken about causes that she believed in, such as the injustice of the Viet Nam War. May she rest in peace.

Remember others at this time of year that are not as fortunate as we are. Food banks are hurting at this time, especially now that we are in a recession. Monetary gifts, even small ones are much appreciated at food banks since they can purchase 5 times the amount of food that you can. Wow! The other banks that need your help during the holiday season are blood banks. The holiday season typically sees a shortage of supply at blood banks and if you take a little time donate blood or platelets (much needed, ask about it,the process - apheresis, is much like a regular blood donation) you just may save someone's LIFE, how's that for a wonderful holiday feeling? It doesn't cost you a thing, and they give you free snacks too!

While perusing the New York Times I read about El Guincho (real name Pablo Diaz-Reixa), and was immediately sure I was going to like the music since he uses elements of Afro-beat, dub, Tropicalia and rock-and-roll. Bingo! This track is off his 2008 album, Alegranza!.

These photos evoke the feeling that you're looking in on someone else's life, as if you've stepped into a strangers living room and are perusing their scrapbooks and must come up with the narrative to go along with the imagery.

Isn't this a lovely calendar for your desktop? Best thing is that it can be used year after year. Worst thing is that I can't remember where the thing can be bought, only that I discovered the image on FFFFOUND!

I snapped this photo while in Reno. I just loved the retro look of the sign, it was in pretty good shape. I can't say the same for the motel itself, although it was right on the strip - which isn't saying very much at all.
