Meatload Cupcakes

I think it is a good idea, portion control and all. They look cute, all meatloaf-y w/ mash potato 'icing'. A piece of sundried tomato would look cute on top. Meatloaf Bakery

Best recipe I have found so far is on the little paper fold out label on the big jar of chopped sun dried tomatoes from Costco.

Listening to Webinar

At this moment I am one of about 300 people logged in to a online seminar called a webinar. Jeremy Schoemaker (Shoemoney) is answering questions about how he makes money online. He has a blog that is visited by about 40,000 individuals each day.

It is a pretty universal topic. Even Martians want to know how to make money online. Jeremey has made a ton of it. A big help to him is that he is a self taught programmer. Lots of the stuff he talks about is edgy. At this point he has made enuf that he can do experiements.

His two posts that have drawn the most traffic are the one where he talks about loosing something like 200 lbs. & shows photos (he got some stomach surgery) and the other one is where he is holding a check from Google for + $132,000 dollars. That photo has been passed around and even used illegally and he has had to get lawyers.

He is a very open and chatty guy.

I have looked at a zillion sofas this morning. I was also cleaning up a web page that i made a while back that had links to a lot of Italian leather sofas and knock-offs of Euro style sofas. It was amazing how many dead links there were.

I don't know if it that they closed shop[ of late or if it was just a flash-in-the-pan idea that never really worked out. But a lot of the online modern furniture shops were gone and in their place were pop-ups for garbage. Yuk !

Anyway, the web page is all cleaned up and a lot of images of leather sofas added now.

Green or Blue ?

Lundy is trying to decide if she should order a lime green (like the green on small sofa in photo) or a sky blue sofa...oh wait, this is not Facebook, I can type in first person...

I have located a semi-circle sectional sofa that comes in leather in good colors. I called LAFurniture (Not Lower Alabama, but the other LA) and asked about getting swatches. They came today. I got 3. Each one is aprox. 1/2 in. x 1/2 in. kidding. Much smaller than a postage stamp. Smurf size. But I can see the colors OK.
The blue is about like the blue on the sofa here minus the deeper blue on the loose pillows. The green like the green on the little sofa.

Of the 3 they sent me 2 are great. This makes it hard to decide. One is the exact shade of the lighter blue in the tile floor and the other is a wonderful rich deep lime green. The blue would be very serene and matchy-matchy. The lime would really pop, but is that a good thing ? I mean it would REALLY pop, and a semi-circle sofa is gonna be attention grabbing no matter what color it is.

I have my momma's old sofa here but since I think I am going to try to rent out the Hardwood Dr house as a bed and sorta-breakfast, I will need it here. Plus it is very traditionally styled sofa and would require that I use other furniture in the new living room whereas this awesome sofa will be all I need.

I have been doing deep web searches and the same sofa seems to be imported by several different people. Prices are usually similar. All of them are on west coast, I have been looking for someone on east coast that imports it. No luck so far.

Sky Blue or Deep Lime Green ?

Who has time for all this

Between Facebook, emails, multiple email accounts, and all the rest...I just can't keep up w/ Twitter, and LinkedIn, Alibaba, Hi5, and the rest...and besides, catch this interesting bit of news:

Matthew and Michelle Reed, along with their 2-year-old son and newborn baby boy, are the first of what could be a stream of people to move to Dothan under a program that offers Jewish families as much as $50,000 to relocate and get involved with the city's only synagogue, Temple Emanu-El.

A family that's been part of the reform congregation for decades funded the $1 million resettlement program and launched it last year, fearing the congregation would dwindle and die without an infusion of new blood.

With one new family already in the fold, and hundreds of others expressing interest, the goal is to bring as many as 19 more Jewish families to this mostly Christian town of 58,000 in rural southeast Alabama over the next five years. AP Article
