Don't Buy This!

Internet Address and Password Logbook
Nothing like making your logins and passwords obvious and easy to find!  I can't believe anyone would but this item, but I saw it in the Fresh Finds catalog for $7.95!  This is NOT a good idea--save your money! The last thing you would want to do is make it easy for someone to find your logins and passwords.  Here are some alternatives to using a book like this with a title on it.

1.  Use a plain, ordinary notebook without a title.
2.  Better yet, use a sheet of paper and stick it in a book or a notebook.
3.  Put it away from your computer, not in the desk drawer near by.

If you do not think Internet Address and Password Logbook is a very bad idea, I encourage you to read Think Twice by Lisa Scottoline.  That should convince you!  (Click the link for our review.)

January Favorite Reads






My favorite read for January was Somebody Else's Daughter by Linsey Lanier (Click the link for my review).  This is contemporary fiction about an abused wife who goes in search of her baby daughter that her abusive husband gave away without her knowledge.



Gerard's favorite was Girl on a Train by Paula Hawkins (Click the link for his review).

The one we both liked very much that came in second was Hidden Agenda by Lisa Harris, a thriller with lots of action and suspense from start to finish.

New Food for Manny From The Natural Pet is a Hit With Spunky

Since Manny seems to be having some trouble eating lately, I thought his teeth may be hurting him so decided to try some canned food for him.  I went to The Natural Pet on Ridge Rd. today and they were very nice and eager to help by giving me five free samples plus $5.00 off for being referred by a friend with a full guarantee.

"I don't want that, mom.  Where's my normal food?"

Manny likes his dry food so I wasn't surprised when he turned up his nose at the Lotus Just Juicy Pollock Stew for Cats.  It looks good enough to eat to me, kind of like a tuna casserole.  Spunky thought so too.

Spunky liked, but Manny wouldn't even taste it!
I have to hold the dish while Spunky eats to keep her from eating too fast.  I knew she would like the canned food and gobble it up.  Even this way, I'm not sure she'll keep it down but I hope so.

More, mom!  This is good!
I have lots of other different flavors, maybe Manny will like some of them.  We'll see.

Figure Skating Pairs - Great Athleticism!


Shibutanis (sister/brother)

I happened to watch the U.S. Figure Skating Nationals yesterday and really enjoyed seeing the pairs  (I started watching late so missed the singles).  I was mesmerized by the athleticism involved in this ice skating event!  Some of the moves they do I couldn't even do on the floor of my living room!  I thought it was quite spectacular and also enjoyed most of the music that went along with their routines.  The two pairs I liked best came in second and fourth.  I was rooting for the brother/sister team, Alex and Maia Shibutani, because they did part of their program to a Strauss Waltz that was beautiful!  Hawayak and Baker was the other pair that I really liked a lot because not only were they doing impressive moves, but they looked like they were really enjoying it too! 

See photos of Alex and Maia Shibutani.

See interview with Hawayek and Baker.

Did you watch yesterday?
