Sell Your Books
I found this site, cash4books when visiting Red Pine Mountain this week. All you do is enter the book ISBN numbers you want to sell, get a quote of how much they'll pay you (either by check or PayPal), print the postage label and send them away. Books must be in good condition and they usually only buy those that are 2006 or newer.
I finally learned what a "megapixel" is when visiting Better in Bulk. It's one million pixels or dots that make up a digital picture. Basically, the more the better the picture quality. This post includes a table letting you know how many megapixels you should have for what size prints you want. This blog also has a tab for photo tips with a post on how to make pictures you load to your blog larger.
I found 5 Tips to Improve Your Pet Photography at Dogster's For The Love Of Dog Blog. Make shots more interesting by shooting at pet's eye level and from different angles. Avoid using the flash and try to shoot early morning or evening rather than in bright sun during the day.
Monday I got my results back from the biopsy and I have some cancer in my right breast--not the news I was hoping for. Learning the meanings of new words like Lumpectomy (removing the cancer, saving the breast, followed by radiation), Mastectomy (removal of the breast, Lymph Nodes, sentinel node biopsy--removing lymph nodes to screen them for cancer cells. Way more than I wanted to know!
UPDATE: Thanks for all your support and prayers! It's so nice to know many people are pulling for me. I just found out last night that sugar causes the cancer cells to increase. This is very bad news for me because I usually eat 2 donuts a week and love chocolate! Both are very bad and are on the "foods to avoid" list. The other bad news for me is that the "good food list" is vegetables which I eat zero of unless I go to a buffet. And guess what is the best offense against the Cancer cells--green tea and vegetable drinks! YUCK! Please pray God will help me acquire a taste for these things--I know With God, all things are possible! For a laugh, check out my previous posts about green tea and donuts: Green Tea Is Not For Me, No Thanks! and Donut Day, Hurray, Hurray!
At Out of the Mundane I found a tip for those who like playing FarmTown on Facebook: Plant raspberries.
Quicker Ice Cubes
At Modern Mom I learned today that to make ice cubes faster, use boiling water in place of tap water and they will freeze faster and be clearer! Modern mom sure comes up with lots of good tips!
I wonder if this post I do each week could count as Friday Fragments. What do you think? Would I have to change the name to link up to others?
