Blog Hop: Photo Prompt August 29, 2012

This week our host is Nicole Pyles. I’m doing this post from my phone, including copying the codes via email supplied by Nicole. Hopefully everything works correctly – my apologies if not (hopefully at least photo, words, and link to submit stories works).

***************************
I swear one of these days I will get to this on time enough to continue/finish my own blog story! Anyways! We are back again with our photo weekly writing prompt! You have done amazing work, and I’m so sorry how absent I’ve been on commenting.

Here are the awesome stories from last week: Pac Man Fever by Scott Taylor This is it???? No way!!! Well, a special thank you to Scott showing up and submitting this week when the rest of us didn’t!

Remember, every submission to the prompt is a chance to win a month of advertising! Read the no details here. And if you want to submit a photo, read how by clicking this link! Make sure to grab a button if you are a fan!

Now for the rules:

1) There will be one photo, and five words -both of those elements must be a feature in the brief story you create.

2) There is also a 500 word maximum.

3) You have until the next Wednesday to create your post.

4) When you have finished your post, come back here and link up below and let me (or whoever your blog host is) know in the comments that you have done so!

5) We were going to tell you to not take this too seriously, but reconsidered it because we know full well that asking writers to write something means that they will take it seriously. So, take it seriously, but don’t fret/panic/pass out/ hyperventilate/lose sleep/run in fear over it.

And now for the grand reveal!

The photo!

And the five words:
Zoo Necklace Tonic Shelf Turtle And when you are done, post it below! <

Project 366: Photo-A-Day August 25, 2012 – Comics for Soldiers

image

Each week, I include a comic strip in the letter I write to a soldier. A little something to brighten their day.

I also include a drink mix.

And an item from my “grab bag”

Yes, I’ve got two sections – one has stuff for the women (yes, there are women in the military too)

It only takes me a few minutes to write a letter,  I buy the Sunday Paper anyway, the mixes are like 10 cents each, and I find most of the ‘grab bag’ items at a dollar store.  The postage is only $.85 (at the most)

Blog Hop Photo Prompt August 22, 2012

Sorry getting this out a little late again.  Implementing a schedule around here as we’re noticing that there are things that are left undone and projects ended up sitting around taking up space – not getting completed.

This week’s Blog Hop: Photo Prompt Host is Carrie over at Chasing Revery

Welcome to this week’s Snapshot Prompt. Apparently the linky was broken on my site and I didn’t realize until today. 😦 Thankfully, it worked over at The World of My Imagination, so I’m happy to share last week’s talent with you and get a chance to see it myself.

Project 366: Photo-A-Day August 20, 2012 – Happy Nappers

Would you believe that the above two pictures are the exact same product?  Actually I used two of these same products to get the pictures (in order to save time in the store as my husband and son were anxious to get going, especially after helping me with the quick movie I did).

I posted the movie on You Tube.  http://youtu.be/ZlMhSUpRgBM

These “Happy Nappers”, as they are called, look to be a nice nap-time addition for youngsters and proceeds benefit the “Home Sweet Home” Fund, which benefits the Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation.

Or, better yet (if you have the money) why not buy 1 or 2 and donate the actual item to one of the many organizations who give toys such as these to children who must stay in hospitals for extended times due to cancer and other such illnesses.

Thank You #MetroPCS for Wasting Space on my phone!

I’ve been getting “Phone Storage Memory Full” messages and started going through my apps to see what could be put on the SD Card & what could be removed.  In doing this I noticed that there were several apps that COULD NOT be put on the SD Card – Nope, apparently they have to take up residence in the internal phone memory storage.  But even more IRRITATING than that is that I have found several apps which I don’t care about (such as the game “Uno:) or ones that are completely useless on my phone (such as “Metro Navigator”) that can’t be uninstalled – That’s right, the “uninstall button” is disabled on those apps.
Thank You Metro PCS for wasting space on my phone.  Thanks to those unnecessary apps that can’t be uninstalled I find myself having to delete things that actually do matter to me!!
So the question is What are you going to do about this problem MetroPCS??  Why should I have to remove what matters to me so that unnecessary and unusable apps can take up space?
