6+1 Things We Learned This Week 24 of 2011(EC, shoes, trees, hockey)

Beware of Entrecard

Mountain Woman's computer was attacked by a trojan horse while returning drops on Entrecard. You can read about it at Ah, Frustration. I do not return drops anymore and rarely use it to find new blogs because of this. I generally just use it to advertise on other blogs and drop when visiting. This is very sad and aggravating that attack sites are in there.
Now they feel much better!


Gerard's new tennis shoes didn't feel right for the first 4 times he wore them. Then he finally took a closer look inside and discovered why--there was cardboard stuck inside! This made me actually laugh out loud.


The lighter side of family lifeI never heard of a cat bird until I read "My Apologies to the Bird in our Azalea" over at For Love Or Funny. They lay pretty blue eggs and squawk like cats!

Trees and Roots

Maple trees are noted for having fast growing shallow roots. The slower growing roots are deeper in the ground.  Some even have red leaves.  I learned this from a co-worker.

Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins are the NHL Champions! They haven't won the championship in 39 years--definitely time to celebrate and buy some more Bruins stuff.  We will have a hockey post up tomorrow with pictures of all our happy bears!

OSU Hockey

I just found out this week that Ohio State University has a hockey team. In January, they will play a game against Michigan at Progressive Field (where the Cleveland Indians play).

UPDATED 6:48 a.m.: One more!

We Won!

Over at Up North, we won a copy of The Happiness Project! Thanks, Ann!

Okay, so I laughed out loud at Gerard's shoes too!! Hee! Hee!

I quit EC a long time ago because of that crud. It's a shame, isn't it?

Yea for the Bruins!!! It's a shame Vancouver had such problems after the series. :( Not cool, people. Not cool.

I'll have to check out that link about EC. It's too bad there are people out there who do things like that.

The shoes still make me giggle!

Congrats on winning The Happiness Project!

We were happy to have the "burden" of Entrecard removed when we gave it up. But we have a small external hard drive that we use every few days to back up everything.

The shoe thing sounds like something I would do!!

Amy said...

Cardboard inserts! Too funny. At least he figured it out before he took them back to the store with complaints that they didn't feel right.

I've never heard of a catbird. But we have some robins in a nest near our front door. It's been fun to watch them hatch and grow.

LOL about the shoes, mainly because I have done that myself! Thank you for stopping by my little corner of the blogosphere and allowing me to find your blog... I am loving how you incorporate pics! I'm off to check out your book blog next... :)
