Showing fellow Bloggers we carel

This is Firestar

Fellow Blogger Bevie of A Voice in the Wind recently passed away leaving a wife, son and a cat - Firestar. Bevie also started the Legion of Online Super Heroes I started reading Bevie's blogs because of his cute kitty avatar -sucker for cats that I am.
Bevie's family really needs our help. Bevie had been ill for a while and unable to work. They lost their home and moved to an apartment. It has been a big struggle for them.
Fellow bloggers Stacy's Cafe and fairyhedgehog with approval from Bevie's wife, set up a collection and sent the fund's to Bevie's widow.
Thanks to all of those who contributed

Amelia and Scarlet

Just wanted to post some photos of two of my babies.
Amelia is below.

And below is Scarlett, Amelia's litter mate.

Amelia, Scarlett and 2 other kitties (Tara and Bruiser) were all litter mates. They were rescued feral kittens. Crazy litter buggers that they are, I love them.

Trouble Sleeping

Have had trouble staying asleep the last 2 nights. What's annoying is that after staying up for a few hours since I can't fall back to sleep, I do finally fall asleep then have trouble getting up - sigh!
No more espressos at 5 pm!

America is sane after all

Oh thank goodness, Buzz was voted off Dancing with the Stars.
I really do wish that show would STOP putting people on the show that are horribly painful to watch dancing. Although I admire at his age that he was able to dance, he really didn't belong on the show and I felt sorry for the professional stuck with him.

Twittering away with my iPhone SImulator

I've been teaching myself how to write iPhone applications. I'm taking a course that Stanford University recorded and posted on iTunes. I've completed Presence3 assignment.

First I load tweeters. Naturally I picked 2 of my favorite Beta authors!

I can click on them and see their status.

I still am working table view for the status since it is cutting off the tweek comments. So a bit more work to do, but I'm having fun doing it.

If I click the 'Tweet Tweet' button I added a feature where I can enter a username and password so that anyone can update their tweet by entering the username and password. It works too!

Teddie - the Best peanut butter - you have to try it

Their peanut butter is delicious and all the natural.
I'll eat a spoonful as a snack, spread it on my banana bread, and another scrumptious treat, I spread a small amount on a wheat thins. It taste like a Nutter Butter Cookie only better - no kidding.
Please share your delicious treat ideas!

Lounging by the Pool

In my virtual world - that is.
Here I am hanging out by the pool in my YoVille world.

Below is my Virtual world front room - that is Amelia in the photo on the wall. It is really cool that we can upload our own photos into these portrait frames.
Below is my virtual world spare bedroom in my apartment (I have an apartment, a trailer and a mansion)

Below is my virtual world front room in my trailer. Skating friends in the portrait.
Rather tiny but visiters can click on it to get a better look.

Below is my gaming room in my mansion -the little red stereo actually plays real YoMusic - ha, isn't that amusing.

Yoville is one of my favorite games. You actually interact with other players, meeting people from all around the world! I met someone yesterday from Palestine - it was most disturbing listening (ok reading) first hand what it is like for him.

How do you unwind?
