Betcha thought I forgot, didn't cha?

(That title sounds best when done with your best "Fargo, ND" accent)

It's that time again, for the Tuesday Tip O' the Day!

"De-salt that oversalted soup by merely slicing a raw potato into it and boiling for a short time. Then remove potato, which will have absorbed most of the salt."

Yes, I decided to give you a tip that was actually practical and not terribly funny...

For the funny part, I decided to do a short "not me" post (if any of you read McMama's blog, you'll know what that is...)

I did NOT let Puckey and the Jib eat chocolate cake for breakfast this morning. This is NOT a picture of Jib after she DIDN'T eat said chocolate cake.

And while I was NOT serving up the cake, I was NOT singing, "Mom is GREAT! She gives us chocolate cake!" because I surely DON'T think that Bill Cosby "Himself" is one of the funniest comedy routines of all time.


Accessorize on a Budget

With all of the economic turmoil our nation is facing, sometimes we have to let some things slide. For some people it's things like buying a new car or home. For others (like me), it's buying necessary items like eyeglasses. How can someone get cute new glasses without breaking the bank?

At Zenni Optical you can do just that. From simple single vision lenses, to sunglasses and progressive lenses, Zenni Optical is sure to have something in every one's budget. Check out their styles, starting at an outstanding $8.00, by clicking here: eyeglasses. Even if you don't wear glasses yourself, you could pass this information on to someone you know who does!

The Chicago Tribune ran a great, informative article last year about the pros and cons of buying eyeglasses, and offers some tips on how to save money. You can find that article by clicking here.

When buying your glasses from Zenni Optical (as is the case with ordering glasses from any source), you have to have your prescription handy before you place your order. Don't be fooled into thinking that you have to order glasses from your eye doctor just because that's who examined your eyes, either. You are entitled by law to be able to take your prescription for glasses anywhere you want to!

Wunnerful, Wunnerful

So, we went to Ande's uncle's church this morning, and the first song that the choir did sorta reminded me of The Lawrence Welk Show. I'm just glad it wasn't quite like this act. (There' a commercial at the beginning of the clip, but stay tuned, it's worth it!!):
