A Day of Celebration!

Today, September 19, is a day of celebration. For us, the celebration started 22 years ago when Amanda was born. Happy Birthday, Amanda!!!! She is such a blessing, I feel truly honored to be her mom. The celebration of the day increased for us several years ago when our family became part of the IHOP-KC family, and discovered that this date is also the anniversary of IHOP-KC going 24/7. Happy Birthday, IHOP!

This year, however, the celebration has gotten even bigger, as I have discovered yet another reason this day is different from all others. September 19 is also:

Sorry about shouting, but my picture in my header disappeared yesterday while I was out shopping. If the person who walked off with it would please return is ASAP, there will be no questions asked, and no prosecution.

Computers are neat when they work right…

One More Microwave Tip

I keep resisting posting this, but I can’t take it anymore. I won’t say you should or shouldn’t do this. I won’t be doing it, but I must admit a rather guilty pleasure in seeing someone else do it. So without further ado: What happens when you put a bar of soap in a microwave:

“Kitchen Things”

This is a term someone put into a search engine that led them to my blog. Kitchen Things? Did I write about that? Well, not that I remember, so, being the inquisitive little bunny that I am, I went out to several different search engines to see why such a search would bring up this blog.

I still haven’t found the one that puts me in such a category, but I did come across an article that intrigued me. It’s called “Things You Shouldn’t Microwave”. My first reaction was that’s got to be a pretty long list! I’m thinking things like hamsters, lizards, your car, your wedding ring… The possibilities are almost endless, and therefore seems like a pretty lame article. Once again my inquisitive side got the better of me, and I clicked. I learned some fascinating things. For instance, don’t microwave your CDs. If you do, this will happen:
