A Trip to the Solomon Islands - Book Review

Lets see, I haven't done an actual book review since the Millennium Trilogy, maybe it's fitting that I have another Trilogy for you today (although it's not finished yet - and I've only read the first two books.)  These books are Cutting the Net (Vele and the Tanifa) and Talking to Trees (Vele and the Tanifa) by Lisa Bird.  As always, I will try to keep the spoilers to a minimum.  I bought both of these for my Kindle my husband gave me for my birthday, although both are also available in paperback from Amazon.  I read each book fairly quickly.  I learned about these books from the author herself.  She is an amazing woman whom I've seen around the local area for a few years and her son is friends with my daughter.  When she mentioned having written some books I definitely wanted to see what they were.  Now you can too!

Link and Zelda More 25th Anniversary Happenings

We've been receiving  a constant influx thanks to our February (actual anniversary date) post about the anniversary of Legend of Zelda.  Mostly I think it's the cool graphic I found of the evolution of Link on a Google image search, but hey, we might as well talk about this iconic video game some more right?  After all Nintendo finally got their 25th Anniversary gear going!  In fact they have an entire website dedicated to the celebration.

Brighton Update, New Miracle Needed, and you can help!

In additon to being Mito Awareness week, Brighton's mother needs a mito miracle and is willing to make cards or scrapbooking items in exchange for the help.  You can get all the amazing details about the new doctor, and the cards she is making on her blog Blessed on the Bright Side. Brighton is almost a year old and needs to get to a specialist in Atlanta, GA. The problem, she just moved and doesn't have much left over, nor a current insurance (90 day wait thanks to the move) and she needs to get this baby on new medications/food now! If you love homemade cards, scrapbook pages, or just want to help this amazing little boy. Head on over to her site. Thanks!

I know many of you have prayed for Brighton in the past, and those prayers are needed again.  Feel free to share her blog with any and all friends, prayers and a little financial help could mean many birthdays for this chraming little man.  There is also a facebook group for this cause if it's easier to share for you.  Join Cards for Brighton there.

What's the Point of Live TV?

Ok, I was going to start a long discussion on social networks, but I want to write all the pieces first, and I got distracted, ok sucked into Felicia Day's TV of the future discussion on Google+.  <-- I think that link is viewable for anyone even if you don't have a Google+ account yet, and if you don't, why not?  Anyway, before you go lose a few hours of your time, read the rest of this!

I've never paid for TV, I currently only get PBS over the airwaves.  I wish we got networks sometimes, becuase there are occassionally shows on the networks that I enjoy and I'd watch them that way if I had the option, but I wouldn't set my life around it.  I did and do watch those same shows on Hulu, or when they had their TV broadcast thing, back in the Pushing Daisies days (even though that software was riddled with spy crap).  Shows I enjoy get canceled every year.  For a while my online friends asked me not to watch certain shows just so they wouldn't get canceled! (it was mostly a joke).  My other coast online friends and I can't discuss shows after they air, because I have to wait until they are on the web AND the coasts still have a 2 hour time delay between them on shows.

Random Tabs 3

It's time for another tab dump.  If you are having a boring Monday, this might help you work your way into the groove for a few hours.  If not hang on and save them for when they are needed later this week ;)

A conversation between the insane

I don't usually do the weekend post thing, but since I didn't write at all this week, I thought I'd give you a glimpse into what an actual conversation between two people walking along the edge of insanity looks like.  We do not share political or religious views, but we still find common ground to discuss the roots of bigger problems facing society and impacting our lives.  Unfortunately, neither of us is in a position to do anything about it other than talk and continue the spread of ideas.

It's also very timely as the conversation which happened last night.  No names, and I'll let you try to guess which one is me.  Enjoy!
