My last discussion had to do with a nice place to find a gift that didn't cost a whole lot of money. Now here's where a person should be wary. Want to keep money in your pocket? Stay away from one of those cute postal...

My daughter said some years ago, to live abroad she had to go, we'd miss each other very much but there were ways to keep in touch. The phone's expensive, mail is slow and then she said "Before I go I really think that you should...

I was thinking(head hurts now) that we all should really be more thankful for all we have. I for one take a lot of it for granted. In the 1800's women had it so much tougher. They had to make the butter, make everything from...

I was speaking to a colleague at work the other day and he said he used the word " computer " to a younger child and he replied " what's that ? " I wonder at what age or where the split is where it's all...

Oh deary me, my wandering fingers have got me into bother again. I was sitting at my laptop when something possessed them. The Aer Lingus web site popped up and my fingers did their work. They were flying over the keyboard at a...

I tried to take a picture of the full tree but my camera could not accommodate it. Here is an image that covers a part of the tree. The lights are not visible either nor the big star that we have put up. I am satisfied with the...

This morning, I had a little free time to craft some Christmas decorations. I printed and cut out the four little Christmas houses that I am going to hang on my tree. I crafted the three cone trees that you see in the photo,...

I gained at least an hour this morning, which I’ll be able to spend myLotting. It wasn’t difficult at all – in fact I think I’ve done it once or twice before at some stage of my life. We’ve been waking up early and are often...

Whenever I go to the capital of my country, I always felt bad seeing some elders stand on the subway train. The young generations don’t mind letting them take their seats. It seems time changes people’s behavior in showing...

Last night with the house completely dark, I took the photo of the house across the street. It's almost the only house on the block that has any Christmas decorations. There are others, but this one is the best. I always enjoy...

There is a little island house sitting on one of the 1, 864 islands located in the St. Lawrence River. Luckily the island on which the house sits is above water level all year long, a requirement for an island to be considered...

This past Semester has been an interesting one for me. I worked at at my friend's preschool in Berkeley full-time, worked at my afternoon kid client job full-time, and taught a class at the College. I've basically had no time to...

When I was cleaning my room, I found some lip balm in there in the form of a soccer ball I had forgotten about. I can't remeber which site it was but I remember they sent me several for completing a survey. I gave out most of them...

Today, I thought I'd change things up a bit and start a new discussion. With so many new members coming to myLot, I thought it would be a great idea if we share how long we've been here. This will give new members a chance to...

I asked PaintsOnSlate (#PainsOnSlate) the other day what 4H stood for. She mentioned the organisation in her post http://www.mylot.com/post/3135166/our-tree-is-up-but-not-decorated-yet. In Australia we have a similar organisation...

Oh sure, those decorative pillows look lovely on our bed that has just been made. However, removing all the decorative pillows at night is a pain. Arranging those decorative pillows on the just-made bed in the morning is a chore...

Val You should market your idea! Make and sell pillows, market them as an exercise plan! It would be a winner.
