I google a lot. No, seriously, a LOT. Well, I call it googling, but I often use the Yahoo! search engine; b/c I do love Yahoo! So, googling for me is more of a verb that means doing an online search.
Anyway, I once posted about a TaxCut software problem I had & the solution to said prob. I check my stats, ppl, & I know that at least 80 ppl came to that post having searched for an answer to that same prob. & I know I helped them. But no comment from them. No, “hey dude, thanks!” or “good lookin out”. Nothin.
So, I’d like to do a post to thank 2 complete strangers.
I am 5’2″. This means that I have to look through racks & racks for “petite” or “short” on pants/jeans. I often do my jeans shopping at TJ Maxx/Marshalls, so I’m lucky to find maybe a pair or two each time I go. Sometimes I find a pair that I love, but only they’re too long.
So, I googled “how to hem jeans”, & found this post by Dacia Ray. It’s the most fantastic tutorial b/c you don’t have to cut off the hem. Her thinking is that you pay for the stitching, esp at the hem, so she shows us how to do it w/ retaining the original hem.
Here’s what I accomplished while watching Ocean’s Thirteen last Sat. (ignore my unmanicured nails)…
A couple of years ago, I wanted to make lamb curry. I’ve never even had it before, but I heard it was fantastic. So, I googled it, & found this recipe by a 2nd gen Indian gal in London. She named her blog for the 30 min train ride route she takes to & from work.
I love how both these ladies show us how to do it, w/ pictures each step of the way, which I think helps tremendously!
Anyway, I love the internet. I love how close it brings all of us, & what we all can learn from each other. Esp the simple things.

Completely unrelated to your post … I really like the new look of your blog! 🙂
Thanks, chickie! We just get bored every now & then, & wanna re-arrange furniture. You know what I mean, cause I noticed that you’ve changed yours a couple times recently too.
