Round Up

Thoughts and well wishes to the people of Minneapolis-St. Paul.

It's good to know that there are companies that care about more than the bottom line. TOMS is one of those companies. Blake Mycoskie started the company after a visit to Argentina. His shoes for tomorrow(toms-tomorrow-Get it) are a simple canvas shoe that comes in a variety of styles. For every shoe purchased, a pair of shoes is donated to a child in need. Very, very cool. So far over 10, 000 pairs of shoes have been donated to the children of Argentina.

My friend to the let is JABBA. JABBA the hanging dryer from Ikea. Clever, very clever.

So your on vacation and you return home and find all of these pesky folks cluttering your picture. Some clever person has written a tutorial on how to remove said pesky folks.

Wonderful site devoted to FANY (First Aid Nursing Yeomanry). I'm telling you these ladies rocked (rock).

These web trend maps are fun. This one has the 200 most successful websites.

I have been spending way too much time on Google Patent Search.

If you are a fan of Vermeer, then you must visit this Vermeer Clickable Map or this Vermeer Clickable Map.

A friend of mine told me about the adorable blog Fat Eric and Friends. Just too cute.

How to Make a Box tutorial.

Flickr really is a wonder. People think of such interesting topics. Look at some of the Corners of My Home pics. Lots of great decorating ideas without the cost of one of the expensive home magazines.

That's all for today. Have a nice weekend.

TOMS is an amazing company with a great cause. They are taking 40,000 pairs of shoes to children in South Africa this November. I'm so glad the word is getting out about TOMS! If you want to help, go to, and for free shipping, enter GINNY in the special codes box.
