It’s St. Patty’s Day!

This is, hands down, my favorite holiday. Has been for years. But today, being away from home and having this HUGE conversion …

Word of the Day Describes My Life

Today’s “word of the day” on my Google page is “Galumph.” What a fabulous word! And how timely! It describes my mood, …

Portable Master Client Financial File in One Place

As I prepare to become truly mobile (something I’m seeking as I look for ways to save bucks), I’ve decided that I’ll keep my client records archived back on the farm, with a digital copy on my computer for reference. I’ll be using a minimum amount of paper. First because piles of paper are unseemly and they take up valuable space and second because I want to be digitally organized.

In this quest, I found a pretty interesting little piece of equipment for organizing myself.

Carry Your Computer Essentials on Your iPod — or a FlashDrive!

I just found an amazingly sweet little suite of programs to make my iPod a backup "server" to take my own programs on the road. This customizable bundle will let me take my browser (FireFox) and a portable version of an AV program, a basic MS compatible office suite, a calendar program, an email program (ThunderBird in portable format), a image editor, a media player, a Suduku game and a host of other options with me.

And the most interesting part? It’s free!

My Hubby’s birthday was nearly ruined when I left the grocery store with only half of the bags I purchased… leaving the jumbo shrimp splurge for his dinner in the self-checkout lane. (Note to self: when stressed out, let someone else ring up my groceries, so I’m sure I get my goods in my basket after paying for them.)

Confessional

Forgive me. It’s been two weeks since my last blog…

I suddenly feel Catholic. My husband (who actually IS Catholic) says I’d make a good one. Says I feel more guilt than most Catholics. This, apparently, is a good trait in the religion business.

Personally, I find it to be a real drag…

I Have Amazingly Cool Clients

I have the coolest clients! And today, I was reminded of that when I got the mail. Today, one of my clients sent me a “Happy Birthday” present for WickedWordCraft.com’s 4th birthday. Pretty awesome in itself… but what she sent was even BETTER than the thought…
