8 days a week

sometimes we do need that one extra day...just to get time to do all *We* want to do :-)

In Blogsville for Crafters...seems like so many blogs have "theme" days..Marvelous Mondays, Terrific Tuesdays, Wonderful Wednesdays, Thoughtful Thursdays, Freebie Fridays, Special Saturdays, SunSational Sundays...well you get the idea.
I found one blog that links to several other Blogs that have their "themes on" days -

Found these blogs following the links on that page,just some of the neat sites to see and Link on over to:

Using things you already have : Stashbusting September

If you can't get inspired by visiting some of these sites, you're not linking around enough ;-)

New Computer in the House

Haven't done much on unpacking the many boxes "still" cluttering my spare bedrooms....but did unpack a NEW Box that arrived last week.
Got myself a new desktop to replace my 8 yr old Sony Vaio. The new one is a HP All in One Desktop. So far so good....on installing stuff and getting the hang of Windows 7 - which isn't all that different as far as I can see from Vista. But I've just turned in on, followed the screen prompts, installed a few programs, copied some pictures and files from my laptop backups on an external drive.
I'm a happy camper so far ;-)

I installed my pcCrafter Hugbug Deluxe Browser and then had it scan my harddrive for my installed graphics collections that I have accumulated over the past 7 yrs from
And I also installed my favorite graphics/photo editor software : Microsofts Digital Image Suite 2006. Its working fine in the Windows 7 Home Premium edition - 64bit system. So I'm good to go and play on this computer. Still will use my laptop most days - but wanted a Desktop that was current and that I could grow with. My laptop, a 2yr old Toshiba is running VISTA, and I'm happy with it, But gotta keep up with all the changes Bill Gates wants us to always be running out and getting new stuff.

Are you ready for some Football!!

Its almost time..I'm looking forward to NFL Football being back on TV for the 2010 season. I won't be getting any of the Buffalo Bills games here in Florida. But I'll listen in on my computer via 97Rock.
Of course we have the preseason games starting up this weekend with the Hall of Fame game. The Bills first game is Friday the "13th"....oooooooh ahhhhhh (*update 8/14/ didn't go usual, we're just same ole same ole...insert heavy SIGH here ;-( ). I don't know how the season will play out for my beloved Bills, but whatever they do or don't do...I'm still a 12th (Wo) MAN !!
Here's my recipe for Chicken Wing flavor DIP that is a big hit with my family...if we're watching the Bills...since I won't be doing that anytime soon...might have to make up a reason to serve it up :-)
