Tired of overseas customer service

So Obama promised to bring jobs back to America. so why in the last 4-years has more of the companies I deal with, using calling centers out of the US. There were a handful of companies that still had US based customer service agents and I loved calling them because I could understand them. I have TWO left. I am not talking about my monthly utilities but rather credit cards and other accounts like that, that are now out sourced outside the US.

So where is the promise of bringing jobs back to the US? Two weeks ago Continue reading

WTFriday Sept 28 2012

This is more of a random thought then a WTFriday thought but it still goes along with the idea.

So my kids loved the Berenstein Bears for a while. I do too, I think the cartoon is a good one. I like the morals and what it teaches the kids. There has always been something that bothered me though.

In on of the episodes they show when “Sister” was not born yet and it was just the Mom, Dad and Brother. Where does WTFriday come in… Continue reading

Bling phone covers…worth it or just pretty?

I thought I would share my review on a phone cover I bought this last week. It is a good thing it cost me less then $10 because even though it is pretty, I don’t like it one bit:)

I bought this phone cover on e-bay and like I said it was under $10 even with shipping. It is a nice pretty diamond looking “bling” phone cover. So why do I dislike this cover? Continue reading

I think I can…

I feel so redneck today! Look at my sad, sad, mower. I have had the redneck mower for a year now…seriously. Last year the right side of the handle broke and today, the left did. I don’t want to spend minimum $250 on a new mower when it’s nearly October, but I may have too…grrr! So the break happened after 3 stripes of the yard done….did it make it for the next 60 minutes of mowing? Continue reading

I am so excited!

I have been decorating cakes over the last year (teaching myself) and I am so excited about what is coming in the next few days that I could not wait to post about it!

I kind of “bumped” into this website called Sweet Wise and I found a video of this tool called the “mat.” It is a mat that you can roll out your fondant and place it on the cake and the fondant does not have to touch the counter AND you don’t have to lift it with a roller or your hands…seriously. If this does not make any sense to you at all, here is a link to the video about the mat!

I never thought I would like to decorate cakes as I don’t like crafts or things like that very much. I have found in the last year that the cake decorating thing, Continue reading

Monster Truck Cake

Wow I am going to toot my own horn because I am pretty proud of my cake. It was my son’s third birthday and he wanted a monster truck theme and I was on a mission to make a cake for him.

As you know I have been teaching myself via YouTube and trial and error cake decorating. The monster truck cake was going to test my skills big time. I did find an awesome video that broke it down step-by-step on mycakeschool.com. This is the first time I have had a step-by-step recipe so it made it a lot easier then I anticipated.

I would show you step-by-step in this blog post but since I got the idea from mycakeschool.com I will not re-copy below because I don’t want to copyright. But here is how the cake turned out… Continue reading
