I don’t get what all the fuss is about and I can’t even blame it on the teenagers. I think the grown women, adults, and mom’s act a tad crazier than the regular crazy teen girls do over this book/movie. And on that note…I don’t even know which gets more attention, the book or the movie! I wonder which one makes more money? My guess is the movie. One day I will probably watch the movie but I won’t ever read the book. Sue me.

SALT LAKE CITY — The news has been around since the beginning of time.
It circulated by word-of-mouth, later by handwritten newsletters and pamphlets in early European countries, and then appearing in the 17th century in a similar form of what we now know as the modern newspaper, says Phil Barber of HistoricPages.com.
The Internet has made newspapers more accessible in recent years as well as the effects of social media which has made it possible for the news to find you.
Twitter has become a huge platform for the media to release stories and information faster and with a stronger reach to readers. With so much news and information available to the masses, which are the best to follow on Twitter?

Hey did you know today is Daylight Savings time? Unless of course you are one of the lucky people in Arizona where they don’t celebrate this holiday. Oh yeah, not really a holiday is it? Anyways, I’m on Facebook a lot and it seems that is all anyone can talk about today. That and the earthquake in Oklahoma, but that’s another story.
I appreciate the reminders to “fall back” an hour and to change the batteries in my smoke detector but the later it got, the more the reminders came and I was about to go postal. And do the smoke detectors really use that much battery power? I mean really, my wireless mouse works at least 12 hours a day and isn’t as high maintenance. I think it’s a scam. A really good one, but a scam.
Maybe I’m just cranky and need my extra hour of sleep…Goodnight!
Well apparently somebody in the Google office has been playing around with the website and came up with a nifty work day distraction. Go to Google and type in “do a barrel roll” and watch what happens. Go ahead, do it I’ll wait……
Did you do it?
Pretty cool huh? Now be honest, you barrel rolled at least 3 times, then showed a couple people at work, then updated your Facebook status telling everyone to type in “barrel roll” into Google, then you sent out a mass email to your co-workers, right? And if you’re like me, you blogged about it then video taped it and posted it to YouTube.
Because that’s how we roll.
