The World is Now a Safer Place

I just completed an online course for Disaster Preparedness. Now don't get your hopes up. It was only an hour's worth of info so don't expect me to dismantle a bomb or have the antidote for antrax or anything.

No Suckers for Me

I do enjoy Facebook to keep in touch with friends and family. That said, I do not understand the appeal of Farmtown, Mafia Wars and sending eggs and lollipops. What's the point? I almost resent that nonsense cluttering up the boards. I can block it I know but that blocks that friend altogether I do believe. So I put up with it. Perhaps someday when I become so decrepit I can do nothing but stare at my computer all day, I may just try those fun and games but I am not quite there yet.

Live & Learn

I got a new stove. The old one became unreliable. When the burner did not heat up, you had to thump the element with the flat of your hand pushing it toward the place where it connects to the range. Even then it would not always stay hot. Not only that, it was getting ugly looking and harder and harder to keep clean. The new one has a ceramic top and a convection oven. All this time, I thought it was called a confection oven to bake cakes and cookies. The flat line of my learning curve has peaked for the day.
