Most of my family is preparing to leave town for the upcoming holiday [July 4th]. I never make the trek down south for the Annual Family Reunion.
So, what have I been up to?
- Trimming the Bushes
- Holiday Food Planning
- Working on my Amazon Stores, added a new sub-category [Pink Gift Ideas]:
I do most of my shopping online and plan ahead for gift giving. I love finding unique ideas or ideas I think people will appreciate. That is how my "Pink Gift Ideas" page started. Initially, it was a single page under the Gift Ideas category.
Earlier this week, I decided to make it a sub-category. Why? To add more than a page full of pink gift ideas and to unburden myself of trying to insure the pink gifts stayed on the same page. The problem? If I inserted a gift idea before the "pink" page, everything was out of sync.
Shown, a screen grab of the first page of the new sub-category as it appeared yesterday afternoon.
Keep in mind, Amazon prices may change based on different variables. Click here to see the actual page.
Also this week, workmen installed the new gutters, completing all of the work for the new roof installation, which started last week.
I had a couple of errands to run this week, so also shown... me, as I was leaving the house [alive and busy].

Last week I had some issues with my Macbook's display. I believe the problem occurred because I cracked the case just under the monitor where it is hinged. There was a small screw-- in that location.
This problem began in Oct 2011-- and has not really been an issue until last week. Yesterday, I spent most of the afternoon trying to re-calibrate the display only to go to bed frustrated. This morning I finally fixed the problem.
That said-- yesterday I went in search of a portable monitor I could use with the Macbook and found the Toshiba shown on the right. If you are looking for a similar option for your Macbook-- you will need to visit DisplayLink.com and download a driver for the Mac OSX operating system-- as it uses a USB connection.
This item is still in my Wish List-- however it is a serious contender for my next purchase. When I have problems with my Macbook-- I use a flat-screen television monitor which works fine-- however, I need a more portable solution.

My Current Shopping Cart:
I need two of the hard drives-- and recently only purchased one USB 2.0 cable. I will need another.
My Current Wish List [the shoe came in sand but no longer available-- I like this color combination-- too]:
