We saw 15 lighthouses in 2008, and we only started our lighthouse excursions in June…so let’s see how many we see in 2009!Filed under Blogs | Comment (0)
Google Reader is awesome. It’s an RSS reader, but the benefit of it is that you can share blog posts that you like. As you can see, I added a widget to the right of my blog with everything I’m sharing on Google Reader. You can also see everything I share on this page: Krissy’s shared items.Filed under Blogs | Comment (0)
I kind of wish I never wrote that previous post, but I guess it’s too late now, especially with all the comments that wound up on Universal Hub. Sometimes I wish I wouldn’t open up my big trap, but then what else is this blog for? :-)
In other news, Turkey Day is the day after tomorrow. Let’s discuss that instead. Mashed potatoes, yams, pie, etc.Filed under Blogs, Greater Boston (General), food | Comment (0)
A few weeks ago, I was contacted by someone on MySpace telling me about a new social networking site for women who suffer from endometriosis (as well as their spouses/partners). It’s called We Are Endo.
It’s actually a really great site. It’s really much like MySpace, with status updates, groups, blogs, etc. The Boston-area Endometriosis Support Group disbanded so at least now I have a place where I can login and feel like I’m not alone. The blogs are useful too, because you can chronicle pain.
But then, at the same time, because it’s a site for an incurable disease, it can also leave me feeling a little hopeless.Filed under Blogs | Comment (0)
The octopus was fun and cute and all, but that overall layout was just a little too cluttered. I now have a little birdie on my page! You may have seen that little birdie before, because I sometimes use it as an avatar. I used to be VERY into illustration for a while, and that was one of my favorites. I also made a cute owl and a hippo…but for now, say hello to our new friend, a little blue birdie!!Filed under Blogs | Comment (0)
A Newton blog I run, TheGardenCity.net is broken. I have no idea how it happened…I was on the site last night and it was fine, but then this morning I logged in and it was broken.
So, any users of TheGardenCity, I’m sorry about the inconvenience. I’ll be trouble-shooting and hopefully I can get it fixed before the weekend, because I’m leaving town on Friday evening for a few days.Filed under Blogs | Comments (2)
Since I wrote my post about Beautiful Mount Airy Lodge last summer, I have gotten almost 900 hits from people searching for “Mount Airy Lodge” or variants of that phrase. Some people found my blog post from Googling the line from their old theme song: “All you have to bring is your love of everything…”
I think that term gets me more traffic than anything else I’ve ever written. My I Hate You, RMV post, my Harriet Carter post, and my kugel recipe (or really, my family recipe…I can’t take full credit!)
I guess there are a lot of people feeling nostalgic for the commercials aired in Greater NYC from the 70s-90s!!!
A few other gems were the Carvel Commercials will the creepy Tom Carvel urging you to buy a Fudgie the Whale or Cookiepuss:
Or Crazy Eddie…as you know, his prices were insane:Filed under Blogs, nostalgia, videos | Comment (0)
After blogging here for three years, I’ve finally upgraded Wordpress. Well, actually, my dad did! So I’m hoping that I can download some plugins to combat the spam problem I’m having.
The graphic I had at the top disappeared, so I need to put that back. Ooh, and now tagging things with new tags will be easier, so I’m going to go back and tag some old entries.Filed under Blogs | Comment (1)
