Luv's Take A Stand Contest

This is a sign that I made in order to try to help win our PTA $1000 dollars. The school board has voted for a healthier school lunch menu and whatnot (which is truly a good thing, not complaining about school lunches being more healthy...but with this ruling they have taken away from our PTA about $50 per week. Every Friday afternoon the kids enjoy what is called "Fun Friday" and we PTA ladies go to the school after the kids are done with lunch and sell them either a sno-cone, snack or both. Last year we were able to sell the kids some candy but this year we are not to sell anything even remotely close to candy, chips or cookies. Which really has only left us with a few choices for snacks...and these snacks are more expensive (isn't that really always the way it is with healthy foods, they always seem to cost more...) which means that fewer kids are able to buy a sno-cone and a snack. And as I have already mentioned, this is really cutting into the PTA's fundraising profits. "Fun Fridays" and our annual Fall Festival are our two major means of making money. We do not want the kids to have to do fundraisers. They are too young to be out begging for money and it is just not a safe world that we live in anymore. So, we could really use the money in order to help out with our funds. PTA pays for quite a few bonuses and wonderful incentives for our kids. We pay for the part of RIF that is not already taken care of. We also pay for the dances and celebrations that the kids get to attend for good behavior, honor roll, things of that nature. I really would love for anyone that reads this blog to please go and vote for our sign and help win the kids some money!!! Thanks so much!!

The Yoono Toolbar

I decided a few weeks ago that in order to free up more space on the computer I was going to remove some programs from the computer. Well, one of those programs just happened to be the Yoono toolbar. I truly did not realize how much I liked it until I started to noticing that I wasn't really keeping up with as I had been previously to removing the toolbar. It was just so cool to have that little box down there in the corner pop up with some random piece of information or conversation. Long story short I broke down and reinsalled it to my computer. So far I have no noticed the computer running any harder than it had been previously this evening...and I am even on So I am coming to the conclusion hence far that the energy sucking problem was coming from another source.
Oh, so sorry, back to the Yoono toolbar. After I re-installed it I decided to register as a new user instead of saying I had already had an account...a fresh start you might say. And boy, let me tell ya, I am sure glad that I did. I totally had my old toolbar just sort of jacked up. I did not know that I could get updates for myspace which just makes a ton of sense to have for me then having Facebook, where I really never go on and don't really know any of the "friends" that I have on there. So really psyched about that!!! I also understood more about the inviting friends portion of it then I had last time. I am not even sure if I added any email contacts the last time I did it. So all in all I am really excited that I have my Yoono back!!!!

Nikon Coolpix S51
So I totally would love to win this camera!! The camera that I have now is not shot, not in the least. It still takes great pictures but I really need a camera that has image stabilization because my hands tend to shake so badly all the time. And that means that if I do not want blurry pictures then I have to shoot when I am holding the camera in both hands. Otherwise the picture comes out a blurry smeary mess. The only other thing about the camera is that every time that you turn on the camera the screen with the date and whatnot pops up. And as many times as I try to re-set it so it doesn't do that, it just refuses to stay I think it is because I had a couple minutes there when Z and I were at Busch Gardens and I could not stop dropping it on the sidewalk...ughh. So all in all it is still a good camera with a lot of life left in it. That is why I have decided to give it to Z after I get a new one **fingers crossed that I can win the one the contest that is linked at the top of this post**. I think at this time Z would take care of it and appreciate it more than Hay. I mean he did just turn! Actually what I think I would like for Hay would be a more kid-undescrutable type of camera. Heck, maybe even a video camera where she could tape herself singing and dancing. Now that could be a really cute idea for a birthday or Christmas present for her...I like it
