Bits and Bobs

Ivy says:

Several things on tap this morning, so you get one of those catch-all posts.

First, a gigantic THANK YOU to all the comments on my “A Side Helping Of Transparency” posts. I am so glad for all the sympathetic and understanding comments. Home Eccers are the very, very best and I love you all.

Second, don’t forget that today is the last day to enter to win your own Furminator! If you have not yet entered, get right on that. 🙂 (*Edit* it ended a while ago)

Third, we got a question in our inbox that, while we were researching it, we found a link so thorough that I can’t add to it or take away. Here’s the question: “Have you any tips or suggestions for taking oil and grease stains out of a granite worktop? Much appreciated, thank you.” Here’s the link we found for taking stains out of granite counter tops. Very neat.

Finally, some excellent news! I’ve been asked to speak at Blog Her’s Reach Out tour in Nashville. I’ll be speaking on finding your blogging voice. If you’re in or near Nashville, register today so you can come out and support, I mean, see me. Additionally, Heather and I both plan on attending Converge South in Greensboro, NC. Best of all, that conference is free, so if you’re at all close, plan on attending, it’ll be fab. If none of that floats your boat, Heather will be attending the Blog Her Reach Out tour in Greensboro, NC. (Conferences were canceled)

I know, it’s all Mid-South based, but that’s where we’re located. Maybe someday we’ll get someone to finance a Home Ec 101 World Tour and we’ll get to come to a town near all of you Yankees and Westerners and Canadians and all of the rest of you. I can see it now, “Home Ec 101 does Paris.” “Home Ec 101 does Prague.” Come on, sponsors, you know you want to send us around the world!

Anyway, Home Eccers, have a happy Thursday! What’s on your mind today?

    Is it so wrong not to want to have the baby until after BlogHer Nashville?
