2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt: The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 10,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Disable the Dashboard in OS X Mavericks

I downloaded the new OS X Mavericks for my macbook and I love it… except there are a few things that I have been struggling with. One was that the Dashboard launched if I sneezed the wrong way… I would just swipe the wrong way and while I was in the middle of working, I would end up in the dashboard. UGH! It was driving me crazy. So I googled and found this article from IT World: http://www.itworld.com/operating-systems/379426/disable-dashboard-os-x-mavericks...

A Perfect Book of Psalms

Since my husband and I got married, we have been doing the merge of two homes dance. You know how this goes… I have a crockpot, you have a crockpot… my crockpot is newer… sell the old. I have a couch, you have a couch… your couch is nicer… sell mine. One thing that has been fun is the coming together of our books. Daniel doesn’t have too many in his house (not for lack of having books, rather because most at boxed up at his parents’ house) but I came with......

Days like today…

When crisis strikes in Colorado, Israel or really anywhere in the world, my days look like this: Wake up. Learn there is a crisis. Obsessively check Facebook, Twitter, news outlets, any information I can find online (in the case of the November 2012 Israeli engagement it was an awesome blogger giving blow by blow)....

Young Me/Old Me

I may be creating a never ending spiral by posting this but… it got me thinking. And frankly as meme’s go, this isn’t the worst one… A friend from high school wrote a post with the identical title – Young Me/Old Me wherein she referenced another mutual friend from high school who wrote I think I’ve turned into a wuss....

Trumph!

Trumph!

I must brag! We did it! We finished our thank you cards! Finally! I had been warned that this was going to be the most time consuming and annoying part of the wedding. Every night, writing cards for months. But honestly, I enjoyed it. I love handwriting cards to friends and family. In fact, I have an 80-something year old pen pal in Chicago. 🙂 But all in all, I am proud of us. We wrote all of our thank you cards and I even made Dan in charge of his friends......

Update on the No Pants Dance

I was over at my favorite financial advice website, LearnVest, reading an article about this woman’s quest for a perfect credit score and I realized… I just stopped my No Pants Dance updates when I got engaged. I mean, to be honest, I was a little bit distracted by my handsome fiancé and our wedding and then our honeymoon and now our adorable puppy BUT that is no excuse. Let’s start with a recap. I decided to do the No Pants Dance in May of last year. Read about that here. Then......

Ever Been Threatened On Your Blog?

Add me to that list. Last year I wrote about a dubious email I received from a Matthew T. Keener of CMO Summits.  You can read the blog post in full here – Marketing Directors Targeted in Scam|Spam. I wrote about how when I tried to learn more about this potential professional development opportunity I hit one road block after another which made me curious about this organization. In the end, I wrote that others had branded this a scam, the IP addresses and emails were marked as spam and though they......

Mandy Patinkin at JFS Luncheon

I had the pleasure of listening to Mr. Patinkin speak at the Jewish Family Service luncheon here in Colorado. He was a joy to listen to and he sang a little bit of a song a the end in English and Yiddish. Here are my tweets from the event and the sound bite at the end.   JFS luncheon with @alliedjewish and Mandy Patinkin (@ Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center) 4sq.com/145VpRr — Talia Haykin – טליה (@thdpr) April 24, 2013   Waving hi, @jonathanlev !
