    Three Books for My Spring Reading List (Part Three)

    Earlier this week I shared about two books that are on my Spring Reading List. You can read about them here: Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World by Michael Hyatt and More Than Enchanting by Jo Saxton. The third book is by my friend Noel Yeatts. Noel inspires me every single time I’m around her.

    Three Books for My Spring Reading List

    It’s been unseasonably warm in Lynchburg this winter. Daffodils in full bloom tell me it’s time to think about my Spring Reading List–even though I have unread books in bookcases, on my nightstand, and on my Peter’s Kindle.

    Google Plus Invites are Like My Keys

    I’ve FINALLY gotten into Google+ ( and now I’m ready to share the love. (This after receiving two invites last week and was still denied access because of beta blah blah. What’s up with that?) So, I sent my first invite to Peter, because, what good is Google+ if the love of your life isn’t in? Next [...]

    I’m not sure how long this feature has been available, but I just learned today that I can now leave a Facebook conversation (i.e. private message sent to all 500 of your friend’s friends and you get to read each and every reply).

    One Facebook Setting You Should Definitely Change

    I just came across this great post about Facebook security and a short (1 min. 49 sec.) video on how-to enable HTTPS/SSL encryption on your Facebook account. Blah blah blah. Whatever.
