Do you enjoy the sound of rain? Are you more productive? Do you sleep better? Final question: Have you seen and heard this? I have to admit it is soothing as long as it isn’t adding mud to the bottom of my shoes!

Will you Buzz?

Just learned more today about Google’s Buzz. If you have a gmail account (and I do), using Buzz will be simple.

Buzz is built right into Gmail, so there’s nothing to set up — you’re automatically following the people you email and chat with the most.

I like the idea of having everything on one page as I already use Google’s Reader to follow my favorite blogs, a couple of tech sites and even local news headline updates. Time will tell if I learn to love it and use it.

A week ago today, Ed purchased a new computer with Windows Vista as the operating system. It’s pretty darn cool if I do so say myself and myself really hasn’t gotten to play around with it all that much. What I’ve seen though, I liked! He finally said after the third day of using it he was getting used to it and liking it also.

I ran across this site tonight and it certainly looks to be helpful for figuring out where things have moved from XP, or just learning how to do tasks you’ve never done before. I had said I wouldn’t want to change to Vista until the bugs are all worked out. Looks like Micro$oft is well on the way to having most of them squashed. Now I won’t be fretting as much if my computer starts misbehaving.

Do you remember what it was like to not be so reliant on your computer? I don’t and I’m not sure if that’s good or bad. :|

Have you used online photo printing services?

Last year and this one I’ve ordered from Snapfish, Shutterfly and good ol’ Walmart. I’ve been pleased with all three and turned in yet another order for Wally World tonight. I also had photo books printed and was very happy with them too. The books are simply awesome. Nothing like thumbing through pages of your own images. Just thought I would pass that little bit of info along in case you were thinking of doing something similar and had not yet tried any of the available services.

Fun, new sites

I occasionally check out PC World’s web site. Found this article last night and have enjoyed visiting these new sites. Maybe one or more will be useful to you.

The link is to the alphabetical listing. Down at the bottom of the list is a drop down menu where the sites are broken down into different categories. Go explore!

Technology Amazes Me!

Now this is just way beyond my comprehension, but good golly is it ever awesome! If you have a high speed connection, be sure and watch the video of Mr. Hochman and Mr. Gates demonstrating what ‘Surface’ is capable of.

Go… Have Fun!

With my thanks to Lynne for finding and sharing this site, I made this scrapbook page of our pretty boy, Simon.

Simon Collage

Scrapblog is fun and easy to use with excellent results. Lynne has created beautiful layouts of her boys. You can share the pages on your blog, web site or send your family and friends directly to the scrapblog site to view them.

Recently, the husband was experiencing severe foot pain and went searching on the web for answers. I don’t know that he actually used this site, but if he didn’t he certainly could have. It’s an awesome resource and will help you determine if medical intervention is necessary.

Hubby decided he has plantar fasciitis with his research and has treated it by adding shoe inserts to all of his footwear and taking anti-inflammatory drugs. I’m happy to report his feet have greatly improved!

Question for you: Does having all this information at our fingertips make us foolish for not seeking medical attention to determine exactly what is happening with our bodies?

I’ll let you make up your own mind, but for me, it gives me reassurance to have these answers available.

Need a photo for a project?

Yotophoto is a search engine to find free-to-use stock photos and images. Some are totally free to use, or there are restrictions such as crediting the photographer. You can search by keywords, image size, orientation, color and more. My graphic friends will find this search very useful and are already familiar with some of the sites Yotophoto indexes. Take a peek if you’re working on a design or simply wanting to view specific types of images.

Need to know….

how to do most anything?

eHow is the world’s most popular place to find step-by-step instructions on how to do just about everything. Learn how stuff works, how to fix things, how to find things, how to buy things, and how to make your life easier.

Another of those useful sites on the web. You can thank me later! :)
