Technology!

Lame title today, but thanks to my brilliant friends at the McGill household, I have discovered my google reader. It's saving me oodles (and I don't use that phrase lightly)of time. If you are like the blogger formally known as Katie-clicks-a-lot, you spend a significant amount of time clicking on each and every blog on your link list. This is fine except that on any given day, there's only a small handful that have anything new on their blog. Not anymore, friends! Instead of clicking on every single blog link on my lists every time I simply go straight to my google reader where I've subscribed to all my blogs. If there's anything new, that blog title will be in bold and I can just spend time reading what's new instead of clicking my night away. It's revolutionized my "freetime".

And speaking of blog technology, have you noticed that when blogs have the word verification code in order to comment that the codes are becoming longer and longer? Sometimes the code is longer than my comment! Yikes! There's no spam getting through that security! I mean, I feel like I'm writing an essay in a foreign language just to say that something was cute or funny. Anyway, not a big deal, just an observation.

And just to keep the peeps happy, here's a pic of E-beast with a new hairdo he was sporting this morning.


If you look at the natural flair combined with the refrigerator magnets, it looks like the Big Dipper! =)

Love the hair! Someday, when I/we are in St. Louis I can't wait to meet you guys face to face. I have been struggling here in KC with Lee Anne and Erick in Antigua. Have thought about calling Russ a couple of times to ask him if it gets any easier. This is hard. It's great to see your end of having E home. Hope to have our E home before Christmas....Pat
