It's a crazy world out there when it comes to information theft. Hackers don’t care if you are a nice person. Hackers don't even care if you have a "small blog" when they want to take over your space. If you offer them the opportunity to be inside ...more
Do you have a point-and-shoot camera that isn’t taking the kinds of pictures you want? Are you stuck shooting in your camera’s out-of-the-box settings, too afraid or too busy to learn how to do anything else?
If this sounds like you, then keep ...more
As much as I say "I don't care about growing my blog" and "I'm writing just for me" -- it's not true. Not for me. (Not for you, either, by the way.)
We wouldn't be out here, putting our thoughts, lives, emotions out on display if we didn't want ...more
Well, it's been a busy week at A Cook and Her Books headquarters, setting the blogging and business worlds straight on acceptable uses of my pictures. It all began with my weekend rant on the unauthorized use of my photographs that were copied from A Cook and Her Books and posted without acknowledgment on business websites and other blogs.
As we continue to write more blog posts, we create more internal links between our blog posts and external links to other websites. So the possibility of us having a broken blog link, meaning a link that does not work, becomes more likely. Not good. So, let’s check for broken links!

So there’s this video game that my friend bought me for Christmas a couple years ago. It’s called Style Savvy Trendsetters and it’s always on my game rotation. Truthfully it barely leaves my 3DS slot....more
YESTERDAY EVENING, I SPENT THE EVENING WITH MY DAUGHTER, MY DAUGHTERS FRIEND, AND HER MOTHER. WE WENT TO A ASIAN RESTAURANT TO HAVE DINNER. AFTER THE MENUS WERE GIVEN OUT, MY DAUGHTER TOLD ME THAT I COULD NOT ORDER ANYTHING OFF THE MENU, EXCEPT THE CHEFS SPECIAL. WHAT DO YOU MEAN I CANNOT ORDER ANYTHING, I STATED. THERE WAS A MENU OF 4 PAGES OF DELICIOUS LOOKING ASIAN FOOD. BUT I COULD ONLY ORDER THE SHRIMP DISH. ...more
I get asked this a lot. Bottom line (no pun intended) you can't be sitting in your office and on the toilet at the same time. Calculate the size of your office VS the size of your home, and that' the percentage of all household expenses that is allowable for business!

I started blogging at Pecked To Death By Chickens about 5 months ago writing mostly about minor annoyances and how I deal with them. I always like to add some funny to my writing because I want people to enjoy reading it, and I know that personally, I am more likely to something if I am amused....more

Self. I'm immediately reminded of that scene in the movie Beaches, when Bette Midler's character, C.C. Bloom is introduced to her blind date for the evening. She immediately feels compelled to share a lot about herself but at the same time looks for validation in someone else who she just met.
"Oh listen to me I'm going on and on about me- enough about me, what do you think of me?!"
Today was such a better day! I accomplished so much on my list, and maintained a good, positive attitude all day. So Yay!I have a few new readers on my blog, which I'm really excited about. I wanted to spend a little bit of time just re-sharing my story (in brief) and hopefully filling in some of the gaps....more
