Intelligence

dohwannaseep, Mama

I put Matthew down on his mattress on the floor next to our bed.  He starts chanting. “dohwannaseep, Mama!” “dohwannaseep, Mama!” “dohwannaseep, Mama!” “dohwannaseep, Mama!” “dohwannaseep, Mama!” “dohwannaseep, Mama!” Insistent little guy. In wonderful news, my cousin Andy had his first child today!  I know nothing of details yet.

SunSplash Trip

Truly, I am overwhelmed. So, what do you think? Does this theme say commadot.com to you? Make a suggestion for […]

The Mystery of the Belly-Button

If you have an Innie belly button: Insert your finger deep into your belly button. Move it around slightly. Now smell your finger. I believe that all human beings cringe at this exercise. (All who have ‘innies’ anyway) Many people are fascinated and afraid of their belly-buttons. It is not an erogenous zone, but it […]

There are many libraries now that can achieve goals that previously were incredibly time consuming. Here some of my current favories. http://www.jquery.com (Nice small tool for programming interactivity into your pages easier) […]
