Christmas 2009


Christmas with a three year old was definitely unlike any Christmas I've ever experienced. Sophie B. really got into the magic of season. Chewy, our Elf on the Shelf kept her laughing everyday. Santa was a topic of conversation everyday. And for 25 days the doors on our advent house were almost ripped off the hinges!

Our trip to the most expensive place on earth Disney World the week before Christmas put somewhat of a wrench into our Christmas plans. It made for a hectic and rushed week leading up to Christmas when we came back. Come Christmas morning, Mickey Mouse couldn't hold a candle to the guy in the red suit who some how knew that a certain little girl had her heart set on a barbie jeep.


Pouring "coca-cola classic" for Santa. We figured that milk would get warm and nasty by the time he made it to our house.


Rounding the corner to see what had been left...


Watch out people/parked cars/animals and objects. Soph has wheels!





Channeling Alvin, "me I want a hula hoop!"

Elf on a Shelf and the advent calendar are both sorely missed now in our house--it made the mornings so much fun, didn't it?

Looks like you had a great Christmas! Love the Jeep--I always wanted one of those :)

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.

Hey, Good evening.
I love www.blogger.com because I learned a lot here. Now it's time for me to pay back.
The reason I want to post this guide on this of www.blogger.com is to help visitors solve the same problem.
Please contact me if it is inapproprate here.
Here is the guide, wish it would do people a favor.

Put DVD to iPod? It's really possible!

We love movies because they give us chances to experience various fancy lives of someone else we can just imagine in dreams. Most of them are DVD movies. DVD, whose main uses are video and data storage, is the popular optical disc storage media format. Since we are being satisfied with the benefits DVD brings to us, we are also bothered by its inconvenience, which is not portable. Fortunately, we had the iPod.
"iPod", explained in the Wikipedia, "is a brand of portable media players designed and marketed by Apple and launched in October 2001." All we know that watching music videos and TV programs on your iPod is all great and everything, but there is wondering left how to put DVD on iPod? Usually, that must be one reason many people buy a Video iPod - they think that they can watch DVD movies on their iPod video directly as they want. Wrong!
You can't find out an option like "convert DVD to iPod format" on the iTunes interface. Maybe it seems silly, but it's completely unsupported. You would think that after spent $299 or $399 on a video iPod, you would be able to put any kind of video on your iPod? Wrong either!
Before going any further, we are about to get some software that will help first. The software, generally called a ripper, will basically be ripping the movies from the DVD and converting it into a format which can be used by your iPod. There are sorts of programs on the market made by manufacturers such as ImTOO and Xilisoft, which can assist you convert DVD to iPod. Just Google what required, more information lists for you to select!
Let's take Xilisoft DVD to iPod Converter as an instance. After program installation, I think less than 40 seconds is fast over my imagination. Tow options to upload your DVD folder or ISO folder: choose from the "File" menu or click the "Open DVD" or "Open ISO Files" icon directly on the interface. Select destination formats including almost all kinds of iPod video formats in the "Profile" box, and determine the location on your computer for the destination folder. After all, just one click "Start ripping", you can get the DVD movies fit for your Video iPod.
The next, we need to transfer these DVD movies fit for iPod into our Video iPod which means the exact answer of how to put DVD on iPod. Of course iTunes is a perfect choice, but there are some smart tools as well. I think you are supposed to take a opportunity to try "iPod rip" or "iPod to computer transfer", they are amazing (the usability and the price)!
Now you see, just put a DVD to iPod in a few simple steps! I hope that was useful to you and will help you put your existing DVD movies onto your iPod.

Playing bingo needs more than luck or skills and techniques, contrary to what most believe. Bingo, just like any game of chance, comes with rules and regulations that players should observe. Being a player comes with responsibilities and etiquette.

Winning the Game

The moment you figured out you won, you must immediately yell BINGO, and it should be loud enough for the floor walker to hear. The pot money shall be given to the winner once their winning card is confirmed. Well, in winning or once you know you just won, the most important thing is that you shout the winning word BEFORE the time elapses. If the game proceeds and the next number is mentioned and you failed to shout "Bingo", your winning card is disqualified. Therefore, this is the rule you must know.

There may be cases when there are two winners, and in this case the pot money shall be divided equally among the winners. Supposing there are two winning cards, the two winners will share half the prize money.

Bingo Game Rules

Bingo rules are basically the same no matter in which Online Bingo hall you play. But still it's good if you know these rules by heart. If it is your first try, then ask for handouts and inquire from pros regarding the game rules. Nonetheless, the ideal thing to do if you have questions is to ask the floor walker and not the person seated beside you. You should clarify things and doubts before the game starts because asking too many questions as the game proceeds could well distract you. This guideline also applies to those who are newcomers at casinos, those who play roulette for the first time.

Bingo halls demand an age limit of 18 years old. If you are below this age, you are prohibited to play. Some bingo houses ban alcohol inside, so players aren't supposed to take liquor nor drink it inside the venue. Smoking may also be restricted inside the venue, as there are designated smoking sections.

Take note that some Bingo houses don't allow food but some do, so it basically depends on the venue. Policies vary among different venues. For instance, some bingo halls allow reservation of cards, while others don't allow it. Some allow people to leave the venue in the middle of the game, others forbid it. But there are general policies observed in all bingo houses, such as disqualification of tampered bingo cards. There is no way you can get away with a tampered card because the walkers are adept at identifying authentic cards from tampered ones. You could be banned from a bingo establishment if proven liable of tampering a card. Hence, you should play honestly.

Interestingly, some venues offer special bingo games for kids although some halls don't allow players to have companions while playing. Suppose you bring kids with you, don't let them run around the venue and bother other gamers. They should behave well whilst you play and the game proceeds. Play quietly and don't recite the numbers you desperately want to come off because you'll be much of a disturbance if you do. Decorous playing is expectant of all players, even those who play roulette at casinos. Also, having a valid identification is important because you don't know you might win and need to present credentials.
