Pour the gin and dry vermouth into a mixing glass. Slowly add the olive brine.

VGNO "Heart-Shaped Rock Project"

The little "gem" has left Yaya's and has landed at Kat's place, that Sassy Irish Lassie. She is going through the pain of computer problems and will post her picture soon. After Kat's place the heart-shaped rock will travel to Carolee, who is Working In My Jammies And Lovin' It.

Our VGNO "Heart-Shaped Rock Project" visitor list is growing every day. Would you like to participate? Just e-mail me your mailing address at annharrisonATcomcastDOTcom and I will add you to the list. When you receive the "gem" you'll need to take a picture of yourself, or someone (or place) special, with the rock in the picture and post it on your blog. It's traveling America! Take part, why don't 'cha?!

Now, dear VGNO friends, I believe I'll go have a cocktail and remember those sweet days when my girls were tiny and the biggest issue was 'Did I bring enough diapers for this long car ride?' Ah, the good times.

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

How to Find the Safest Gear for your Baby

Nothing compares to the joys of being a parent. Having a newborn in the family brings couples closer and makes the entire household more cheerful and interesting. But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards. To further help you in this endeavor, here are some useful tips for finding the safest gear for your baby as you go through various baby product guides:

Taking Steps To Stay Away From Depression

Why do I read the news?   So depressing.  I'm at a place in my life where I need to focus on positive images, ideas and people whenever possible.  Why in the world do I click links that will only lead to negative, unhappy, heart-breaking information?  Ugh.  I don't understand myself.  If I'm going to avoid a depressive state of mind I need to stay far away from the negative.


Oh I need to read this everyday.  More than once a day.

There is good all around.  I'm going to keep looking for the positive, the humor, the kindness.   Do you have any suggestions on where I can find positive, funny, heart-encouraging news and images?  I would love to focus on what could go right in the world.  And... I would love to share more positive with anyone who will accept it.
