Every once in a while, a technological innovation so advanced comes along that we, as a society, might as well just take a break from trying to invent anything else for a few years. It's like, what's the point?
The most recent of these marvels is an autonomous trash can on wheels that communicates wirelessly with what appears to be Microsoft's motion-sensing Kinect camera to position itself underneath pieces of garbage you toss in its general vicinity.
I’ve thought and thought and thought… until I felt like The Grinch, pondering until my ponderer wore out…
What is Valentine’s Day?
A day to share our hearts with our loved ones? Oh, wait, can’t give you a hug today, hun, gotta wait until Valentine’s Day…?
St. Valentine was a MAN, of that we are sure…ish. He was a Catholic priest, martyred in Rome in ‘maybe?’ the third century. (This is the one generally considered to be St. Valentine.) However… there were two others, (According to this Catholic Encyclopaedia). Not much is known of one (served in Africa) and the other wasn’t a priest IN Rome.
But that is NOT what I want to bloggle ya with.
I want to ask you, “Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day?” Do you celebrate it ON February fourteenth, or, do you wait until a convenient evening/day around the fourteenth? (Ie: This year it is on Thursday, will you wait until Friday or Saturday?)
Do you include your children? Your parents? Your friends? Your pets? Your extended family?
Do you try and do something romantic with your significant other?
Is it a day of romance? Happy memories?
Or of love? Your pet; your friends; your…?
Or of painful reminders? Bitter disappointments?
Will you spend money you’ve scraped and saved?
Or will you whip out that nearly paid off credit card?
(Or will you be all corny and romantic and present a handmade craft?)
Will you go traditional, flowers, candy, dinner, wine? Or something off the wall; heli-picnic; trip to Paris; base-jumping hand-in-hand?
It’s strange that we have just left a season of time filled with (supposed) joy, happiness and love and now we enter a day reserved again, just for that purpose. And not even recognised as a stat-holiday, either!
We’ve already been given the greatest love gift of all. EVERY single one of us. We just have to have faith, take hold and unwrap it.
The ultimate gift. The ultimate love. Don’t let it sit in the box on the shelf; open it, enjoy it, SHARE IT!
PS: I don’t have the flu… I am testing cold-remedy products… so far they all make me feel like I’ve got the flu… *see you in a week or 7-days; can’t hurry these things ya know…*
PPS: Being stuck inside all day has left me stir-crazy… IF I did it correctly, the above photo SHOULD take you to BibleGateWay.com… Just don’t want you to panic if I’ve done everything horribly wrong and it warns you your computer is being taken over by mind-numbing zombies or something…
PPPS: I went ‘insert-delirious’… now to see what it looks like after posting… (I’m tryin’ Live Writer again… don’t want to spread my germs too far afield… )
It's time to be real, which isn't really so fun for me. I've shared on my blog that I'm just learning to be a submissive wife, and that it's hard. But I've rarely shared about the times I've failed to respect my husband. In thinking back over the day yesterday, I realized that there were a few times that I was VERY disrespectful to my husband, and I want to share those with you today.

I barely have words right now. As someone who loves writing and wants to do it for the rest of my life...sitting right here, completely overwhelmed by everyones love and support is an incredible feeling. You have helped me turn the biggest dream I have ever had into something real...and I know that with you guys, no matter what comes at me, I have the support and foundation I need to achieve anything.
Me again… Did you miss me? LOL…
I keep wondering how to increase the size of my plate. Or decrease the size of my order. One or the other requires slimming down. I am certain I have A.D.D…. and it’s adding up!
My newest thing this week (actually its all related to the new computer…) is testing this feature. (“What feature?” you ask looking around…)
Well, if I’ve done everything correctly, and you SEE this post, then THAT’S the new feature! “Huh?”
Oh, c’mon, it’s so simple…can’t you see it? *grin*…
Okay; okay… I’ll stop teasing. (Of course, if you read the title…)
Yup, trying this Windows Live Writer (or kinda). According to the information I found on it… which, ironically I had to use GOOGLE CHROME to get ANY useful info about it, all MS tells you is, ‘awesome program, you need it NOW!’ Yeah, that’s informative…
I open a program in my computer, type what my gripe… err information is today and click post… and (again, if I’ve done it all correctly) it posts for me!
I am dying to post this and then come in and see what it looks like! (and what bit of advertising they’ve attached, cause if I see ANY out this program goes!)
So, a bit of a useless post, just really testing my new toys… hope I didn’t bother ya too much…
Oh, BTW, if you could let me know if YOU notice any icky stuff… I’d appreciate it…
PS: What I don’t like: It’s impersonal. I don’t have to come in and peek around; read your creations. I don’t like that at all. (and this is before posting…. wonder what else will fail?) (PPS: This is the SECOND post… I checked the first, it didn’t handle the font too well… trying again…)
