Flashlight Worthy Books

10.20.2009

Love the name. I remember being a child/teen and being so absorbed in stories, so carried away by them. They were crucial to my existence. And, once or twice, I did read by flashlight.

08.24.2009

Thumb Storage

02.02.2009

Thumb drive, flash drive, jump drive… they have lots of names but what they do is save your life in the case of a computer catastrophe.  I once lost 150 pages when my hard drive crashed.  That’s when I bought mine.  So, here’s an adorable one.  You don’t have to have a cute one, I […]
