I love writing, doodling, and my love of miniatures…oh just wait till I get that post done. 🙂

but for something different to do for your loved ones, or friends like me, that love to write.

Here’s something different, and the artisian crafts these by hand!! So beautiful!

forgot to mention the important stuff; $$. $15. for the journal necklace, $3 for shipping to the United States. 🙂 so total $18. Really a good deal, cheaper than a dozen of roses, and will last much longer as well. 🙂

I love shopping on Etsy, much nicer service. One of my orders came to me with a hand written thank you card, lovely watercolor design on the front of the card. And some little peppermints. I was touched! So I ensure to pass it on, and let other’s know the joy of shopping on Etsy! give it a try!! but watch the reviews, much like on eBay.

OMG! This!!

I saw this video this morning, and I thought it was awesome! Okay, maybe not text book parenting skills here…but he was in control the entire time. And I don’t think just grounding her, would get the message across as easily as this will. jmo!

From My Mashable newsletter:

Dad Shoots Daughter’s Laptop Over Facebook Post

Posted: 09 Feb 2012 07:29 PM PST

The disgruntled teenage daughter of a tech-savvy, gun-toting father just got a very public lesson in respecting one’s elders.

“That right there is your laptop,” the father, named Tommy Jordan, says in a YouTube video while pointing a video camera at a computer on laying in a patch of dirt and grass. “This right here is my .45,” he says, moving a pistol into the frame.

He cocks the weapon and shoots nine exploding hollow-point rounds into the laptop.

Okay, rewind.

Jordan’s 15-year-old daughter apparently wrote a Facebook post complaining about the chores she has to do at home and the overall hassle that her parents make her life. The father took exception to the public airing of grievances, and so decided to exact his own bit of public revenge, according to the video description, as well as Facebook and Reddit posts he appears to have made.

The role of social media in family life has been debated since social networks began to catch on, but Jordan appears to be taking a proactive approach.

In the video, which is titled “Facebook Parenting: For the troubled teen.” and looks to be shot from a tripod, Jordan sits down in a chair outdoors with a computer print-out in hand. He dedicates the recording to his daughter and, “more importantly for all her friends on Facebook who thought that her little rebellious post was cute, and for all you parents out there who think your, you know, kids don’t post bad things on Facebook.”

Jordan says he works in IT for a living (and, indeed, appears to run a company called Twisted Networx) and chastises his daughter for thinking she could hide the note from him with privacy settings. He then reads the purported note aloud after explaining, “since you want to hide it from everyone, I’m going to share it with everybody.”

In the note, the daughter says that she should be paid for the chores she does and her parents overwork her, criticizing them harshly. Jordan says that her complaints are mostly unjustified, and contrasts it to the work he had to do growing up.

After about seven minutes of preamble, he gets up from the chair and plugs the computer full of lead.

Jordan writes in the video description: “Maybe a few kids can take something away from this… If you’re so disrespectful to your parents and yourself as to post this kind of thing on Facebook, you’re deserving of some tough love. Today, my daughter is getting a dose of tough love.”

Mashable has attempted to contact Jordan for further comment, but so far has not received a response.

Safety concerns…

Is this just happening in Indiana?

I’ve seen two motorized wheelchairs this morning. One, I nearly hit. They were wearing dark clothing, and no reflectors on their chair.

The second, was nearly hit by another couple of cars.

OY!

just because they are motorized, does NOT mean that they are street legal. I’m not ranting because they are making me angry. I’m ranting because they could be seriously hurt. Ask a motorcyclist- they are street legal, and they still have horrible accidents. The one wheelchair I nearly hit, was not only because it was difficult to see them, but because they went to turn, and um-they don’t have turn signals. Yeah, I know, that is a problem in Indiana. People, turn signal’s are NOT optional! Use them! but oh my gosh….I guess, please watch for motorized wheelchairs in the road.
