A friend of the family intro'd me to this game a couple of weeks ago.  Heads Up! is actually the brain child of Ellen DeGeneres and is a world of fun for only a buck.  It's an app for your phone and it's a lot like Headbandz if you have played that game before.  Basically you have some clues that the guesser can't see - they come up on cards on the … [Read more...]

So I know most folks use Pandora but at some point along the way (in the last year), I got turned onto Songza, a free Internet radio app, and I've been turned over to them as a loyal listener ever since.  What do you listen to?

I'm kind of surprised at myself that I didn't think to post this one sooner.  I use TripAdvisor all the time.  Pretty much anytime we're on the road, TripAdvisor comes out. As you can probably guess from the title (if you don't already know the website), TripAdvisor is a helpful app for when you are traveling.  It includes reviews and ratings … [Read more...]

This is how my kids described this game to me:  "Mom, it's really cool.  You're a cat with a Pop Tart body and you have to fly and catch things while you poop out rainbows." There you go people.  I don't really think that's what it's supposed to be but now that's all I think about when I look at this game.  There's not much to it other than … [Read more...]
