Plug and play external DVD drive

Plug and play external DVD drive

I used to think that when my dvd burner went out, that it was gone for good.  I also thought that if I was able to afford one, that I would have to be all techy and know a lot to install it.  Boy was I wrong! I was sent a Dvd/Cd Player- burner.  This one is available on Amazon for under $30.00.  It is also plug and play.  That means all I have to know how to do is plug a cord in a USB port.  It does the rest!

Are you ready to shake it up?  Mixed drinks that is!

Do you like Mixed drinks?  I do!  While John will drink a warm beer here and there or a rum and coke, I like to try different things.  While I enjoy the alcohol, I remember making virgin pinocolatas with my Sister.  I love going in a place for dinner and looking at their drink lists.  Of course the prices on some of those drinks are just crazy, so I figure out what it’s made of and experiment with them in my own home.  That is the place I feel more comfortable drinking

How to trim your pets nails the safe way

How to trim your pets nails the safe way

Probably the best way to keep your beloved pets nails trimmed, would be to take them to a trusted professional groomer.  But we can’t always afford to take them to the groomers.  So what are we to do.  I tend to always have the vet do Foxy and Cleo’s when we take them in for shots.  But there is still those in between times. I am always afraid to use regular clippers. I know there is an area you don’t want to hit, because of the vein.  I just don’t want to mess with that. Lately I

I needed these gloves the day I set the couch on fire

When I first started cooking, we didn’t have a lot of fancy tools.  In fact one thing I did was use a dish towel when removing something from the oven.  That is how I seen my Mom do it, and that was how I done it.  I didn’t realize how dangerous that could be, until I learned the hard way.
