I Phone 5 Frenzy!

I know I was in need of an I Phone upgrade!  I have an I Phone 3 and was eligible for an upgrade for quite a while.  I thought after the I Phone 4 came out and listening to the buzz the I Phone 5 was next!  Apple instead introduced the I Phone 4 S.  I was going to wait for the I Phone 5 as long as my I Phone 3 still hung in there for me!

When I got my I Phone 3 everything worked the way it was supposed to!  The I Phone 3 did not have a …

Grilled pizza takes practice. You can’t just do …


Going out for breakfast always a special treat!

For some reason going out, being served and ordering something I would not make for myself is a wonderful way to start a day! I don’t have to make a mess in the kitchen and clean it up- an extra bonus!
I highly recommend you go out for breakfast whether …
