Holiday Tablescapes and a $250 Gift Card Giveaway (ends 10/31/14)

CCM Scape 1

  My family and I live in a teeny, tiny condo. I think it's karma for something bad I did in another life or something. I NEED more space. Not just because we are tripping over each other in our home, but because I love to entertain and decorate for the holidays and seasons. It's hard to do when you live in a "shoebox" and don't have a yard. Oh … [More...]

Avoid Group Therapy – Switch to Cortana Smartphone

C1

      Have you seen the Cortana commercial where the people are sitting around in group therapy? Just in case you haven't I have posted it (above). The commercial makes me laugh every time I watch it. They are so serious about things. LOL! It's just a spoof of course. Your phone's assistant shouldn't put you in group therapy. … [More...]

My Ramblings

Celebrity Spokespeople vs. REAL People

Cherry red summer apple isolated on white

  Do you ever watch television and see a celebrity pushing a product or service and wonder "Why him/her?" For example, Tommy Lee Jones promoting Ameriprise Financial and Catherine Zeta-Jones trying to get you to sign up for T-Mobile. I wouldn't associate these people with the things they are trying to sell you. In fact, I am never swayed by celebrity … [More...]

For example, February 28, 2014 is National Pancake Day. This coming Saturday (January 4, 2014) is National Spaghetti Day. There are also weekly and monthly observances.
