Love my Blizzards !

DQ Blizzard Nope not the weather kind, but Dairy Queen where today is Canadian Miracle Treat Day. One hundred per cent of the proceeds from every Blizzard(R) treat sold will be donated to the Children's Miracle Network a non-profit organization dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children by raising funds for Canadian children's hospitals. So, for such a worthy cause I had to have one. Tiger likes them too and did share a bit of mine, the picture is actually from a year or two ago, I couldn't get a good one today.

I've been doing some stitching, hope to have pictures to show soon.

I learned about Google Reader yesterday, Thanks Carol and highly recommend it. If you read a lot of blogs it is well worth the time to set up. I started with 12 blogs to see if I would like it and only 2 had updates today. Imagine the time saved when you have "tons" to read.

Oh my...google reader saved my time LOADS...that way you don't have to constantly check over and over....I've used it for 1 year now. Prior I had used bloglines, but I found google reader to be more user friendly and it doesn't have as many mistakes as bloglines does.

Oh, thats right, that was yesterday here too.. Never made it to DQ :(

I LOVE Google Reader! Ive been using it for over a yr now, and with the Internet Explorer 7, I can get the RSS feeds from Google, and I dont even have to go to the Google Reader site to ge the posts.

Enjoy!

Fun picture. I haven't had a blizzard in ages, you've make me want to go out and get one. I really do need to set up google reader, it would save a lot of time seeing who's updated without having to check every blog.
