In this realm we find the stories that could have been true. Such as the story of the designer of the color scheme used inside your shoe, or the story of Goki Feng Ho: the Chinese art of decoding the secret meaning of car license plates.

|a shop window at Manitou Springs..that's my 4th child's head|
My husband was lured by Nokia Lumia because he wanted the 50 GB camera on the phone. I wanted the bigger camera (GB-size) too, but considering my life runs by apps lately, I cannot leave iPhone until other platforms have as many apps as. My class notes is available all over my devices with DropBox. I know that other phones have it, but it is not as easy to use. Ease of use is important to me. That said, ff you are a real estate agent, check out goconnect iphone app. It is an amazing app. In fact, if I was not bound for law school, I would consider turning into a real estate agent so I could use this app. On the other hand, it might just be final exam panic talking. Still, that app is amazing. I know because I have tried it.

I found it surprising that nothing grew on top of Pikes Peak. Somehow, I imagined it full of pine trees! But it was filled with rocks and Boulders. I guess when it's that high up, atmosphere and top soil is pretty thin.
I was just thinking about it today. I have final exam in 6 days. I have 3 in a row. The stakes are high. Law Review Journal is at stake! The free entrance that is. Otherwise, I could always write on, but auto-entrance is way nicer, I think.
Wish me luck!

I have gone through so many storage device. I take many pictures. I need a place to store them. There are plenty of choices, but having to make a choice is quite difficult. I did not realized that I still need a power source for them. Sometimes, I find it too much of a bother having to find a free outlet. We are a musical family, and soon, we will need better instruments and device to record all these creativity. My 9 year old had decided to play the cello because his only sister plays the violin, his older brother plays the bass. I was thrilled to hear that my budding cello player is going to be good enough to compete at the all-city-band competition next year. There is a good chance he'll win. Yay!
My daughter used to play for the orchestra. However, she was longing for a newer songs to play than the orchestra is playing. As a result, this year, my daughter gave up being a concert master to play with the band. She's happy to bang away on a marimba. She's a whole lot busier too. There's a game almost every Friday night. This band has certainly changed the way our Friday nights go. The conductor or whatever you call the person who directs the band, thought it might be a great idea to have her play the violin. I wonder if what we have is going to be enough to get her heard over the volume of people and other loud band instruments. I am excited for her. It is not every day one gets an offer to play solo about something. I am actually looking forward to it. My daughter's band playlist includes music from Twilight, the movie.
