So why do I keep Blogger?

When I moved my blog to wordpress - I did it because Blogger was having issues on a regular basis with their photo uploads. I'm very happy I moved to wordpress, and most of the time the issues I have are my own doing! :-) But I've kept this blog because many times you need a blogger account to post comments on other peoples blogs. Today Jaye sent me a link to a blog and it had a great template - and following the clues I ended up at the FinalSense website - they have a ton of very nice free templates for blogger. So I've updated my look here - but if you want to see what I'm doing - stop over and visit me in my SloppyStudio !

A unified look

This last week - I've been revamping my website and main Wordpress Blog. This Blogger site is kept mainly so that I can comment on blogs where you need a Blogger account. I still have a lot of content to add (mostly to the website) but I hope you come over and visit and tell me what you think. I've added one of my modeling photos here for my profile. But it may take a few hours to update. :-D eirdre

Have you missed me?

Even though my blog is now moved back to my website - I'm going to continue to post here occasionally so that people's links will remain active, it also allows me to continue post on other blogger blogs . This is the piece I've been working on over on the other site - come and visit over there! I've also made some blog template changes (couldn't sleep last night). They aren't finished yet, but I like of like the fact that all of the images are photos I took!

Just in time for Xmas and Chanukah

I drove by a store yesterday and I HAD TO go back this morning to take a photo.
Yes - its legs, arms and BREASTS!
Then I got really curious and had to go back with a friend to see if it had a head. We peeked into the side window but only saw a red fingernail. So into the store we went - The owner was at the rear moving boxes around and as we came in we said we wanted to know if it had a head. In a monotone voice he answered, "No head, wipe your feet."
Excuse me - I wasn't out mucking the stalls or plowing the lower 40 - and who the fuck puts white carpeting in a retail shop?
And more importantly wouldn't you think that someone who put this in their window would have a sense of humor?
I wonder what it costs?
