Sew much has been in my head to share…this is a real conglomeration – I hope you find it useful and a little diversion at this busy time of the year…

  1. Have a new HP printer here in my office – which runs out of ink constantly. Went to Walgreens to get refilled – they couldn’t do this type. Gal standing there recommended Rapid Refill. GREAT place – lots of them around country in this chain…you exchange your empties for new ones immediately – and they recycle/refill the ones you brought in. Were a fraction of the cost of new ones. Chatting with the owner, asked him for printer recommendations. He said NOT to get a Lexmark. DID recommend the Brother for about $100. Cartridges cost just $7.99!!!! Sounds good to me. Also – for info: the manufacturers are now ‘splitting’ the ink colors – a cartridge for black, for red, for blue, for yellow. AND – if one is empty – makes your printer not work at all. I thought I would print photos when I got this printer – NOT! Cheaper to ‘order’online from WalMart at $.07 each!

  2. Since I write the annual Christmas letter to go with the cards, I decided to just do it in reality – as I’m writing itnot my hubby and I! Giving credit where credit is due…

  3. Working like mad on my computer these days – lots of editing, website work, etc… so forced myself to get organized, cleaned the office…which led to the basement. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE those Guerilla Shelves we got for the basement. WHY didn’t we do that years ago??? Anyway – for satisfying my ‘munchies’ I ‘feast’ on Celery, Cucumbers, and hot water with lemon. Doing the trick so far…though those cookies in the FREEZER keep calling my name…

  4. Speaking of CUCUMBERS… just one cucumber contains Vitamin B1,B2, B3, B5, B6, C, Folic Acid, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorous, Potassium and Zinc…so WHY do I still want a cookie???? Also – the photochemical in a cucumber causes the collagen in your skin to tighten, firming up the outer layer and reducing the visibility of cellulite – so if you’re a lucky one going to a sunny place over Christmas holiday, remember that!

  5. I LOVE being a size 1.5 at Chico’s…..what marketing THAT is!

Standing in the PO yesterday – a LONG line, the postmistress tells us of an elderly woman who said she wanted a religious Christmas Stamp – and so she said, “Sure – Here’s Madonna and Child”. To that, the lady said “No, she’s nasty, I sure don’t want HER!”
