Google acquires Measure Map

Google announced on Tuesday that it has acquired Measure Map. Measure Map is a neat statistics tool for blogs. It’s exciting news – I am sure that Measure Map will be good for Google and that Google will be good for Measure Map. Personally, I’m still waiting for an invitation to Google Analytics.

Googled Out

I recently commented to a friend that I sometimes feel like I spend my entire life on Google. Until I saw my Google Trends today, though, I didn’t realize how right that statement was. It appears that I have made over 2000 searches on Google since last May. That doesn’t include all of the searches I have made when I wasn’t logged in to Google. […]

sesquipedalian

Talk about a cool word! This wonderful word, pronounced “ses-kwuh-puh-DAYL-yuhn,” describes words much like itself: long. As an adjective, it means: 1. Given to or characterized by the use of long words. 2. Long and ponderous; having many syllables. This is according to Dictionary.com, which featured the word as Word of the Day for January 13.

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

Well, Christmas is two days away. I finished my school work on Monday, finished my shopping on Monday, finally got most of my Christmas cards in the mail Wednesday (if you haven’t received one yet and think you should, it’s probably in the mail or still sitting on my desk – I’m thinking about sending Martin Luther King Day cards 🙂 ). Life has calmed […]

Purpose

The whole idea of a blog is kind of odd… I mean, who really cares what is going on with me, or what I think about the latest legislation? Does anyone care? Should anyone care? Probably not. I first started my blog back when I left my old job and related lifestyle (more on that some other time) and wanted to provide a method for […]

Photos of Cats

Our cats got a cat tower today. They are having a blast with it! Take a look at the photos below: Riley was the first to check it out, followed closely by Pippin. Merry was a little unsure of this new thing. So, Alissa put Merry on the top, where he stayed for quite a while. Riley and Pippin explored and played while Merry was […]

My Birthday

This is my first post after turning 24. I had an awesome day today! I worked in the morning and then when Mom got home from work I just hung out in the kitchen talking with the various family members as they came and went, while searching through dozens of movie reviews to find something to watch tonight. Mom started the pizza. Finally, having no […]
