Win a Rubik's World Wii game

Organize with Sandy Reviews is giving away a Rubik's World game. I'm trying to win. Kent won a Wii and this would be an interesting addition to our games.

Moving on

I finally got my own site with my own domain working, so I'll mostly be posting at The focus of that site will be the same: my random babbling on whatever topic is on my mind. I plan to start a site about my web design, but that can wait. I don't really have a name for it yet, and still have a year of school to get through before I try to make money at this. And I'm not quitting my (night) job because I don't expect to support myself at this, it's just for extra money and for fun.

So, join me at for updates. I might post here from time to time, but my main focus will be therem.

Trying to win Excalibur dehydrator

Barefoot Mommies blog is giving away an Excalibur dehydrator. I'm trying to win this - I have a catalog (addressed to my landlady's late husband) and looked through it. I think it would be great to have this for the excess vegetables we should have from our first-ever vegetable garden. I really don't want to start canning yet and I think this could be a great alternative.

I know the Excalibur website has all kinds of ideas for using the dehydrator: making beef jerky, speeding up bread-making process in conjunction with a bread-making machine (another thing I want), drying flowers for crafts and even drying photos that have gotten wet. I don't know that I'll be using it for all those things. I'll just be happy to use it to preserve the vegetables that we grow.

I could even loan it to people at church who have gardens (they can try it out and decide if they want to buy one). We've got a vegetable gardening group sort of started.

April Fools

For real, I'm trying to get my own domain set up but the hosting side of it is a little problematic. I can't log into my own domain, when I try it logs me into the one I started for Amanda.

I uploaded all the WordPress files to my domain but still nothing. I'm going to be spending some quality time with GoDaddy tech support tonight, I guess.
