We sent in our DNA to 23andMe a few weeks ago, and I’ve received mine and we are anxiously awaiting Michael’s. I am so impressed. It is amazing to see all of the detailed reports, fascinating.

To see where my story started, looking over the “TRAITS” reports. And yes, there is a reason why I drink so much caffeine. GENES.

You know I love books, but being in such a small space there is not really room for me to carry around a lot of extra stuff. So I love my KINDLE. Today – I realized I loved it even more.

You can install a small app on your desktop (Windows / Apple / Android) and have just about any and every ebook, text file, html whathaveyous sent to your Kindle. YAY!!

You can also put the Kindle app on your computer, and smart phone — having a Kindle gets you some perks but you don’t have to go buy one to use it as a reader!!

We have set up camp in Petaluma, CA and love it here. Yesterday we went to the Petaluma Historical Museum to see of all things ELVIS!! He really is every where. Gotta love that. After we stopped by the TWiT Cottage to take some pictures and Leo walked up and invited us in. We spent 2 hours there – loved it. Leo Laporte is so gracious and nice. I got to play with his iPad and you know what … people are right. You don’t think you need one or want one if you have an iPhone or iPod Touch … UNTIL you get your hands on an iPad. Lovely bit of technology. I don’t know if I will get one right away but I want one. = )

After the time at the cottage LK took me to Viva Chocolat for goodies. I was so proud of myself, knowing we would be here all week I went sparingly on the chocolate NOM. But it was hard. Yay me for will power.

The sunroof will be in on Wednesday so we will get that fixed, Too Crazy Ladies are coming into town so we will get to visit with them as well. Today we are supposed to see Petey and Tricia and go see Kick-Ass.

I feel like the Duke boys – “having more fun than the law will allow”. = )

Arrrrrgh.

Casting LOUP

Have been thinking about doing a pod cast here lately. I know — that ship has sailed. Everyone has done the podcast thing and the excitement is over. BUT — no one is doing regular podcasting anymore and those who are trying it aren’t doing it on anything I care about. Seems like only professional channels, and people are left.

I am not sure what I would do — bunch all of my ideas and thoughts into one regular show that talks about me and my life (fibro, animals, rving, wolves, tattoos, music etc.) or parse it out to separate casts – one for fibro and health stuff, one about animals, rving etc.

Thoughts?
