Speechless Sunday - Turning 6 - 09/27/09 08:36 AM
Yes, my last post was indeed "Turning 7". It turns out that, just 3 months after Elisha came to this world, she was blessed with the knowledge that she was getting a "Forever Best-Friend". Elyssa was born exactly one year and seven days after Elisha. Today we commemorate that gorgeous day and we celebrated it yesterday at the Rookery Bay Preserve with fun crafts, face painting, holding sea critters, Irish fiddlers, picnic by the pond, and a boat tour to the Rookery islands to admire the gorgeous birds and mangrove forests. Elisha won a coloring contest! Then we were off to (7 comments)
My baby girl and I last Friday. I went to the School and we had a healthy breakfast with all her classmates and we sang the "Happy Birthday" song. It was fun and everyone enjoyed it. I am so happy my little girls are growing up, but a little nostalgic, as well. They are my strength and my inspiration, and believe it or not, my best teachers. Do you remember when you turned 7? It's a big deal! (13 comments)
Need FREE translation? - 09/18/09 10:51 PM
Jason Sanders recenly wrote a blog post titled FREE Website or Blog Translation to Spanish , which made me think of my favorite tools: This magnificent translation tool now allows you to translate any document into one of over 40 languages that are available (the list, of course, gets longer each time you look at it).
On your Google account, simply go to your Google Docs, click Tools > Translate document, and select the language of your preference.
When your translation is completed, you can choose to replace your original document with the translated version or create (10 comments)
I was in Bonn, Germany, for a conference last May and my friends decided we should go to the Pub next to the Hotel. I don't drink, but wanted to meet new people. This man was just one of the funniest characters I've ever met. According to the guys at the Pub, he was a regular and your Bonn experience would not be complete unless he sketched your face. Apparently, he was very choosy about whom he sketched. So...I lucked out, and I'm holding my sketch. I'll have to scan it for your review, meanwhile, enjoy him LOL :) (11 comments)
Elisha and Elyssa were stars at the Naples International Film Festival commercial by Chuck Ardezzone of In Trouble Zone Productions. It was a blast. The Naples International Film Festival will be an amazing event and we're happy to be a part of it. Elisha and Elyssa both look forward to more "acting gigs". We can't wait to see the non-green-screen version! I will keep you all updated. xoxo (14 comments)
Does texting scare you? - 09/07/09 04:03 AM
Texting is the number 2 use of mobile phones. Number one is checking the time! It has become such a popular, addicting and distracting habit that the number of casualties being reported due to texting while walking or driving has increased tremendously. A recently released study by the National Highway Safety Board found that four out of every five highway accidents were caused by people texting or talking on their cell phones. I've seen many "safe texting" campaigns on the Disney Channel and recently at EXPRESS, where I usually shop. I even received a free T-shirt that reads "Hit the road, (14 comments)
