A random and unexpected perk

So, you probably know by now that I started offering ad space here on the blog this year.  The ads are offered using an auction model, and so they are often changing, as bids are made and expired.  I am really enjoying peeking in here every day and seeing who is in the sidebar.  I […]

Yellow Schmellow

Such a busy busy work day today!  As part of my 3-week-old “improve all of the neglected areas of my life” initiative, I’ve designated Wednesday as the day that I take care of all kinds of miscellaneous business tasks – essentially everything that isn’t packing & shipping.  Today it took hours longer than I expected.  […]
