Anniversary Song and NotesIn comments to our Anniversary post, Sandee left us the anniversary song. She included cute little notes so I asked her how she did that and here's what she sent me: & # 9834 ; Now take out all the spaces and you have a note. I will try it: ♪ Yup, it works!
Thanks to Lin from Duck and Wheel with String, I got to see the Flintstones anniversary song which I never knew existed. Here it is:
Amazon Associates ProgramI earned my first money blogging this month from the Amazon Associate program. A whopping 52 cents! If you are looking to purchase a book from Amazon, I'd appreciate it very much if you check out the Amazon ads on our blogs and click through from them if you see something you like. Hey, it's at least something. I don't actually get it yet. It has to reach a certain amount which I don't even remember what it is anymore. Fortunately, I have a job and do not have to rely on making money through blogging!
Furminator VideoI did a customer review on Amazon for the Furminator and added my Furminator video to it. I felt good when I learned it actually helped someone make the decision to buy it:
D. Miller says:
We appreciated your video a lot because it answered a purchasing decision question for us "visually"...and a picture is worth 1,000 words!!! We already knew we wanted to purchase a FURminator for our 2 large dogs (lab/retriever mix) based on the overwhelmingly positive reviews we had read, including yours, but we were still debating on whether or not to get the model with the FURejector. In your video it is clear how easily and effectively this feature "ejects" the fur from the brush - in fact we can even hear a distinct click sound when you press the release button and then see how all the bunched fur is free to drop in the trash. Looks worth it to us so we'll be ordering the exact model you used in your video (same size, too). Thanks for the help with our decision!
Get Kids To Dress Themselves By Making It EasyOver at I'm An Organizing Junkie if found a smart idea on how to get little kids to dress themselves properly. You just sort outfits putting one set of clothes for each day into a different bag. Mark the "dress up" clothes bag differently somehow. She suggested using a purple ribbon for the Sunday clothes bag.
Creation MuseumOver at One Day At A Time, I saw a post about their visit to a Creation Museum in Kentucky. If this were close to us, we would definitely go! It looks very interesting and fun!
Cleveland ZooThe elephants will return to the Cleveland zoo next month but won't be on exhibit until May of 2011 to have time to get adjusted to their new exhibit. They have a special website set up that gives updates at www.africanelephantcrossing.com. They are currently in the Columbus zoo waiting for their exhibit to get finished. It's coming along nicely.
The wolves are most active in the morning, the bears are late risers and more active in the afternoon.
