My 12 Seconds of Fame

How long does it take to read a word?  Probably less than a second for those of us fluent in the language it's written in, but for this measurement let's just assume it's about a second.

So with that figure, I proudly announce my 12 seconds of fame as a blogger featured in a national publication; 'Woman's World'.  For those of you unfamiliar with Woman's World it's a weekly publication with a readership of over 7 million!!  (Okay enough of the blatant bragging...)

1. They have to contain ingredients that I recognize
2. I have to be able to modify it, because my family is picky
3. It has to be non-labor intensive

Do You Need a Smartphone?

Practically everyone you know has one these days, why haven’t you made the leap from you trusty cell phone to the latest craze in mobile technology – the smartphone?  You’re not alone, I don’t have one either, but we may be the last two left soon who don’t!  According to the Nielsen Company, smartphones will overtake regular cell phones in the U.S. by the end of 2011.

I can’t justify a smartphone, because we just don’t make enough calls to make it worth the price of a contract plan.  So we use a pre-paid cell phone service which gives us just enough minutes a month for emergencies, and to cover the odd ‘goof-off’ call

Switched-On Schoolhouse Series: Novels & Dramas – and I’m not talking about my child…

I write the Switched-On Schoolhouse Series twice a month to share our family's experience using this software based curriculum in our home.

If you’re curious about the title of my post, it was just an inference that my daughter can be a Drama Queen on occasion (and then some!), and the simple answers that can be supplied, more often than not, turn into novels instead of one sentence responses, but now I’m the one that digresses…
