Life gets in your eyyyyyes! (sung to the tune "Smoke gets in your eyes")

video
Well I started this blog with every intention of posting at least 3 times a week. Well Life Gets in your Eyyyyyees. Ok, The song is a stretch, but it's a pretty cool old song and I thought it would be kinda neat to
include.

I realize now that I'm gonna have to do this when I can.

Mary's Magic

This is a video and recording by an electronic music producer calling himself  Pogo. He uses small sounds and ambient noises from various live action and animated movies to make his songs. A lot of  people have heard his fairly well known song mix from the movie Up called Upular. You can learn a bit more about him at: http://www.pogomix.net/
This mix (Mary's Magic), is from the 1993 movie "The Secret Garden". The movie is based on the novel of the same name.

Very cool Kindle stuff!

Ya know I think I had heard this awhile back, but kinda forgot about it. I was digging around on Amazon in the kindle section (Kindles Forever!) and ran across free books for the kindle. Now these won't be anything reeeally current. In fact your great grandma and her grandma probably read some of these when they first came out.  And they had to pay for them too! But you can get them absolutely free.
Amazon has gathered together almost 2 million pre-1923 out of copyright books. Everything from Dracula to Pride and Prejudice. They also have links to web resources  like Internet Archive www.archive.org
which is non-profit dedicated to offering permanent access to historical collections that exist in digital format. Most of these books are scanned copies of physical books so quality of reading can vary. But think of it! Books for free! To get going, you can simply go to Amazon and type: "free book collection" and that should get you rolling. And for those of you without a kindle,  Internet Archive has multiple file forms for most books, including  PDF, ePub or Mobi

Yuuuum!

Just wanted to let anyone in earshot know that I just love hummus! As far as I'm concerned Sabra Brand hummus is the best. Roasted Pine Nut flavor ROCKS!

Hello, hello is this thing on?

Ok, This is my first post for the world to see and "Ooooo it's scary kids!" Not sure why it should be, I'm sure there will be like, a grand total of two people who will read this. I know I can count on my lovely and wonderful daughter and my mom, she of the unconditional love.

I have a lot of love for all things girly and geeky and foody. And doggy, can't forget doggy. There will be multiple posts of doggies, so just warning ya!
