Discovering Bo Bice

I was just thinking about when I went to the very successful benefit concert back in March of 2011, this guy was singing and I didn’t know who he was. Turned out it was Bo Bice. The song was not something I recognized, but I had not been listening to much radio at that point and time in my life so I didn’t realize it was a number #1 hit for him – and it was written by Todd, was told he was using a apogee mic 96k that sounded great!

How cool that Todd has helped launch Bo’s career and that Bo was good enough to perform at the benefit concert for Todd. Plus, Bo donated the guitar that he had played for the silent auction, with the minimum bid at $300. I they got a lot more than that for the guitar – it was all for a great cause.

I Love Roses

In high school, I was able to find a part time job after school at a local florist shop. I loved that job and still love flowers – very easy way to score big brownie points with me.

In fact, I’ve worked for several different florists for short periods of time over the years. At the major holidays they are usually glad to have experienced help and I enjoy the hub bub, helping out, and being around the flowers and plants.

Using Up the Fresh Foods

Since I’ll be gone for 10 on the business trip, I need to use up all the fresh food in the refrigerator and clean out everything so it doesn’t spoil.

I have an odd assortment of food on hand and would like some inspiration on what to do with it all. I have a site bookmarked for recipes and menus, called www.foodconnect.com and I’ve used it a couple times already. What I like most about this site is that the recipes submitted and shared are by real people, not fancy chefs who have a staff of 6 to fix everything for them and jump to their every command.

I’m going to send in a couple of my favorite recipes and have them do a free nutritional analysis on the recipes for me. That will be helpful as I try to keep track of the carbs and fat in my diet over the next couple of months. After all, beach weather is just 6 weeks away!

Now Darlene Has Started A Blog

There seems to be a pattern here lately! As well as my other two friends, my friend, (a former co worker) Darlene, started a blog recently, and asked me what I think she should use for software. I told her to get a WordPress blog, since they are the best, in my opinion. She almost spent money on a type-pad blog, but decided against it after I showed her how cool my blog was.

If her blog is anything like she is in real life, it will be worth reading over and over again, and I am looking forward to reading her thoughts on her blog – as should you at DarleneMackenzie.com.

Marilyn Is Getting Started

Another friend of mine, named Marilyn Mueller, has joined the band wagon (or should I say, blog wagon) and started up a blog about her life and thoughts. I am always excited to find other people I know blogging, it is like a connection we then share.

I am glad to read and hear and sometimes see what other people have to say about what is important to them. She has some great tips for bloggers on her blog, so anyone interested in making your blog a little better should check out her SEO posts.
