Who You Gonna Call? ( and the OXO Winner!)

Hello, again!  Sorry the blog has been quiet.  Dan and I just got back from a week at the beach and I’m getting back into the swing of things.  More on the vacation later.  I am planning on reviewing some delicious restaurants and easy seafood meals but that was all put on hold by the imminent death of my computer.


The house we stayed in last week.  It was so heavenly it glowed, or my lens was oily…either way.

My computer needs to be put out to pasture.  It has lived a good life, but it is showing its age and no amount of metaphorical botox can make this computer right again. 


Since my old computer couldn’t keep up with my current needs, I decided to check out some younger models.  Thus began the saga of the computer upgrade.  Three days and two different new computers later I still don’t have a working new computer.  Looks like the first computer has had the last laugh and I have learned the valuable lesson not to cheat on my faithful old computer!



It is so quiet without the sound of the waves in the background…the sound machine just doesn’t cut it!

Despite all of this I haven’t given up.  I’ve called in some experts to fix the new computer.  My working theory is that goblins may in fact be the source of the problem and while I ain’t afraid of no ghost, I haven’t saved up enough for my very own proton pack.


Now onto the OXO winner.  Thanks to everyone for submitting your comments, the winner was decided by and is #4 Jessica F!  Jessica, email me at with your address and I’ll get the salad spinner right out to you!





*just a note, some comments aren’t showing up on the website (damn goblins!) but are in my blogger account so they were included in the drawing.
