After years of traveling to Lodo for our spices… we will only have to go 5 minutes from our house now! Savory Spice Shop is opening a new one in Lowry.

If you are a fan of cooking or baking, you have got to check this place out! They sell wholesale spices in any quantity you need, even down to just a pinch if that is what your recipe calls for! I discovered their Vietnamese Cinnamon for baking the Pumpkin Cake each year, along with nutmeg that I freshly grind. They have some amazing Steak, Chicken and Fish rubs, and just about any other spice you can imagine.

If you haven’t been, they are having their grand opening this weekend at 200 Quebec St. They are offering a 15% discount for purchases over $20 this weekend.

I have wondered how all these sites are able to make their little icons show up on the iPhone instead of a basic screen shot of the site. Well, turns out after a little research it is an extremely easy process!

I hope this helps you all out, and I expect to see you all making your icons so we don’t have those ugly screen shots on our iPhones!

Here it is in 4 easy steps!

Step 1: Open the image you want to use in photoshop or image editor
Step 2: Crop the image to 45×45 pixels.
Step 3: Save the image as a png file with the name: apple-touch-icon.png
Step 4: Save this png in your root directory of your site and you are done!

This is the finished product on my home screen!

HO Scale Humans!

I found this today on Gizmodo. It’s pretty sweet. It’s a video of an Australian beach, using a tilt-shift lens to take off centered stills. When strung together in a video, it makes everyone look like they just stepped into an HO sized train layout.

Thanks to Howard for the information on this one. Obama has released an app for the iPhone that has updates on his campaign with video and photos. Also gives you ways to help campaign for the Obama camp.

Way to go Obama! Staying on the forefront of technology shows a very forward thinking candidate!

It’s October! We all Know What That Means! Right?

Yup, Brutal Planet starts tomorrow night! This will be my 11th season working for the famous Denver house. I started orientation last night as for the first time I will be inside the house, not running the tickets! I got to tour the house and this could be the best year for the house!

I hope that you can all make it out and enjoy the spooks! I believe that the house is still $5 after gate admission, but at least that went down this year to $36.99, but there are plenty of places to get discount tickets, like online and King Soopers! We have two haunted houses this year again, but the new Ghost Blasters interactive haunted house is finally open as well. As always, kiddieland is having their trick or treat trail for the little ones.

Happy October everyone!

Back on WordPress

Well, I had issues with iWeb again, and thanks to a good friend I am back on WordPress, hopefully to stay this time. Please bare with me as I tweek this new theme to work for me. 

The good news is that all my posts are back in one place again! I will be working on getting missing pics from the past few months up as soon as I can.

Let me know what you all think! Best of all, I am now able to blog from my iPhone on the go!

Lucille Is Home!

8 weeks old

8 weeks old

It was hard, but after Nina’s passing, Dan and I went back out and looked at the rest of her litter. At first I was a little uncertain as the didn’t seem to warm up as quickly to us as Nina did. But the second time I held Lucille, she looked up at me and started licking my nose… I knew at that instant, she was the one!

Dan had no problems coming up with her name this time around! She finally was able to come home yesterday, and she is so adorable! I spent all yesterday with her, and she had tons of visitors. She was just as sweet to each of them as she has been to Dan and I. Enjoy a little video of her playing.
