How many texts does the average teen send a month?


A) 898?

B) 1687?

C)  3339?

What did you guess?  It’s “C”!  I wonder if these kids are learning social skills and how they will fare working with others?

How much longer?


……..before Verizon can support the iPhone?  AT&T drops my calls many times a day, EVERY day.  And, after spending $150 on a cell phone booster – also from AT&T – they are *still* dropping calls.  Has anyone found a solution?

Best Lunch Place


After a visit to Capital Lumber, I stopped in NeoMonde for lunch. Had forgotten what great fresh food they have. You can really taste the flavors and the hummus with olive oil was out of this world! Next time you’re about to settle for sandwich, go to NeoMonde on Beryl Road instead!

A green idea


As I was taking a routine medicine today, I thought to myself “Why on earth don’t we return the pill bottles to the pharmacy for recycling?”.  Think about it.  We hardly use them. They’re clean. And could easily be cleaned and reused.

Have you heard of any state or country doing this? I’m going to check with the local pharmacy next time I’m there. Stay tuned.

How Big???

BP Spills Coffee


Just saw this on CNN from the Upright Citizens Brigade, a comedy group.   What a great spoof on BP’s actions in the Gulf.

Is there anything better on a hot summer day?


Than a fresh squeezed limeade?  So far I’ve only found two places in town (Raleigh):  one at the Farmers Market in the permanent building, and the other at the new Zoe’s Kitchen

Anyone know of any other places for the real thing?
