No wonder they're so happy & I'm taking credit

Thursday, September 20, 2007


Ahhh... lard. I just think these old ads are funny. True story... when I was a kid, my mom used to make me lard and sugar sandwiches. Can you imagine doing that now??!! My kids know all about nutrition...I'm not even sure my 7 year old would eat it... he'd look at me like I was nuts!

On a totally different topic, I'm going to take credit for one of the recent changes on sparks. They may have had this in the works before I suggested it...but I'm taking credit. Maybe a month or two ago I emailed one of Spark employees and suggested a change. I thought it would be great if the team description displayed when you mouse over a team icon on somone's sparkpage. When I go to people's pages I usually look at thier teams to see if there is anything that interests me. However, the only way to find out about the team was to actually go to the team page... more cumbersome. So, I suggested the mouseover info display, and...ta daaa - this week we have it.
Your welcome. HAHAHAHA Just kidding.

Yes... nothing deep today... just rambling. :)

    My dad tells me sometimes that he misses eating lard sandwiches! I really can't imagine. When I think of lard, I think of suet for birds. Not appetizing...

    We knew you when........

    Great idea by the way....and the lard sandwiches are absolutely HORRIBLE to think about. lol Thanks for the laugh. Remember when they used to prescribe SMOKING for lung ailments? (of course you dont - your too young, and I barely do either, but they did......what they won't do for money.

    CREDIT GIVEN...............Terri
