When I have an interaction with someone who's friendly, helpful and provides great customer service, I want to shout it from the rooftops.
So today, I'm going to tell you about a conversation I had with the City of Champaign's arborist, Bill VanderWeit, who helped me with a problem tree in my parkway.
I'm as guilty as anyone of not being too careful with my current fridge.
I don't think about it much and it tends to get overloaded by magnets holding up papers.
My new fridge is being painted with auto-paint, so it will require some special care.
I’m happy to report that my kitchen is almost done. Almost.
Between other commitments this week, Rob finished up the hardwood patching (more about that later) and sanded them, and I smoothed them out with some wood putty around the edges.
I love to think about house stuff - decorating, home improvement, you name it - and one trend I’ve been noticing lately are words or phrases intended as decor.
I got my newest Pottery Barn catalog this weekend and noticed a lot of nautical-style accessories: lanterns, sea shells and knots adorning rooms.
Many members of my generation grew up hearing, “You can be anything you want.”
My favorite dog, Grover, isn't mine, but we spend enough time together that I'm feeling the urge to brag about him on my blog.
He's been particularly cute lately. He's a mutt with some obvious miniature Schnauzer in him. He loves anything that squeaks, which I'm guessing is ingrained from a need to hunt rodents.
I had a great time last night teaching a few people about Twitter and why it's useful at the Champaign Public Library last night.
Although turnout was small, it gave us a chance to really talk about the service and what you can do with it.
