This and that

Hello Blogworld,

I've been having a lot of fun on Pinterest.  TierneyO'Hara is my screen name. It's the most seductive of all social media to me because it's so visual. I do have to become unaddicted and get some writing done though.

I'd love to have a job creating Pinterest pages.  I don't think there's a huge market for it though. Sure is fun. Just finished the first book in the Hunger Games trilogy. I wanted to be culturally literate and it's free on Amazon lending library so I got it on my Kindle Fire. I enjoyed it; not a challenging read nor should it be as it's actually young adult fiction. I'm bummed though as I found out you can only borrow one book a month.

I guess I should have borrowed War and Peace and gotten my no money's worth!

When I can tear myself away from Pinterest, I'm still working for private clients and mostly Textbroker clients. Other than that I've been perfecting my fudge recipe...very good if I say so myself.

Tomorrow I get some teeth crowned. I've come a long way in my fear of the dentist. Of course if you have a fabulous dentist like mine, Dr. Ed Kozinn, you'd see why I've gone from scaredy cat to brave as a lion.  Well I'm a bit nervous -- but as soon as you get in the office the staff and the doc make you feel so safe and welcomed.

I left the garlic out of the rice pilaf I'm making just because I love my dentist so much! ;-)
