The Weekly Re-cap: We talked about how to kill mosquitoes and where to get yummy cupcakes. I taught you how to cook a yummy meal that will feed you for days. I told you who I thought should take their shirt off in the next Twilight movie. I relayed a story of a man who helped feed some soldiers on their way to war. Isabella showed off her work ethic and I told you my strategy to find treasures at yard sales. Finally I put up a post about my 200th blog. There we talked about my top 3 posts to-date.

The Weekly Time Waster: Google Chrome. I tried using it a few weeks ago and it kept slowing down my computer and crashing. So I stopped using it, but my Firefox kept getting hung up. It shouldn’t take 5 minutes for a page to load. It was worse than waiting for dial-up! You can’t imagine how many times I was ready to throw something! So yesterday I finally decided to uninstall Google Chrome and that seems to have been the problem! (Yeah, I know, you’re shocked, I’m not putting any links to Google Chrome because I don’t want to encourage ANYONE to install it!!)
