The last word today - thank God for air conditioning!!!!! We went FOUR DAYS without air last weekend, but the new unit is wonderful. Take a look at the little baby:


  1. Congratulations on your Top Choice Award. That's fabulous.

    Went to see Star Trek yesterday evening. It was fun - best to see it with a theater full of Trekkies. They laugh and clap and carry on.

    Top Choice!? WAY cool! Good tips and links today. I've done a few features on HoJo at Free Spirit. Doing another at the end of this month. She's a dynamo.

  3. That's a nice little review on Flamingnet. I noticed that the young reviewer is a Humboldt County local, a neighbor two towns away from me.

    Say, that's a nice looking AC unit you have there. I see your new lava rocks too - come to think of it, lava lamps would look great there. *grin*

  4. Congrats! Great review.

    TGIF and thanks for the nice post and links. Cheers-

  5. Congratulations on the award! Thanks for mentioning my blog. Now I am off to check out the other links.

  6. Oh, Helen, I am jealous! Well, we will see it at 3:30 this afternoon. Thinking about catching the late showing of the new Terminator next Thursday though...

    And see, Mike? I told you lava lamps would look good there!
