fisherman's dilemna, solved!

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Well, I have been fishing for the last few days, which I enjoy…but I do not enjoy the fishy smelling hands that I have after I get home. After 2 days of no solution…my not so in-law brother in law told me he finally figured out how to kill the smell: sun tan lotion. I had washed my hands 3 times at this point with no luck, so I tried it and it works great! No more fishy smell. Of course wash your hands first…but when the soap does not kill the smell, put some sun tan lotion on them… Read More »

frustration station.

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Frustation lies everywhere, either you find it or you don’t…I seem to find it a lot, but finally I can laugh at most of it or at least brush it off. (How many years did that take?) First up…Metra. Boarding my express train is like a Rage Against the Machine video and Metra finally did something about it, they no longer open the first two cars for people at my stop. It finally came to that. I think the older you get, the more rage you have boarding trains, and then comment and waive your fingers at the “out of… Read More »

Great America, Great Commenting

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 2 Comments

This past Saturday I spent most of the day at Six Flags Great America, or I should say I spent most of the day waiting in lines to go on all the major rollercoasters. This was my first visit to Great America this year, and my first year that I bought…well Amy bought season passes for both of us. We are both rollercoaster fans so since the weather was nice we jumped in the car off we went. Since you are in line…yes, in line, not on line (where is the line you are on?) for an hour at a… Read More »

Brown With Black and Black With Navy

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

For all those people out there that find it acceptable to wear brown shoes with a black outift, or black shoes with a navy outift please do yourself a favor and stop the insanity! We should really have informercials on major fau pauxs (yeah maybe I cannot spell, but I know what shoes to wear with my outfits). Let me break it down for all of you: Black pants or black shirt=black shoes Navy pants or a navy shirt (with jeans/khakis, etc)=brown shoes The only exception…the airline workers. I feel for them and always pay close attention to what they… Read More »

Hiding From Google With robots.txt

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Over the years I have become more paranoid over who sees what on my web sites, and I have learned that one of the most important steps in creating/posting a web site on the web is the robots.txt file that goes with the site and the meta tags for each page. I will not go into how I learned the hard way, but do yourself a favor, check out: http://www.robotstxt.org/wc/robots.html. Know that you can control what search engines indexes.

River Crests

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Well, growing up in a non-flooding (in my lifetime) region, the idea of a river cresting is somewhat like any physics theory for me…very hard to grasp. So as I sit here in my midwestestern suburb, near a flooding river (record flood)…I am forced to wait for this river crest thing to happen in two days. I am just sitting here in shock. So this is where I will end the post. Just trying to imagine this thing called a “river crest.”

Emailing Pictures

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

First it is called a server. Second it is called “take five minutes to proportionally decrease the size of your picture”. How many times can that one person who got a digital camera last year for Christmas have to clog my email account with billboard sized pictures of whatever they decided to take a picture of? Just because you have a camera and an internet connection does not mean you need to send everyone really bad, gigantic pictures. Please…there is a little paper thing that came with your camera…and if you passed first grade, do us all a favor and… Read More »
