Multimedia Merger: Pixelpipe

I have tons of photos, audio and video files that are taking the biggest bite on my PC memory. Storing them on discs often make me cringe since I tend to overlook/forget about these memories when stored in different media. Online virtual drives make life easier though since I do not have to worry about storing them on physical media (that eventually gets lost or destroyed). Unfortunately, I hate the uploading part and worse yet, I hate the storage limitations. Keeping multiple accounts from many sites gets confusing and not worth the effort... so I always give up and end up backing my files elsewhere.

But, lo and behold, Pixelpipe is promising to make life easier... in the multimedia department. I haven't fully tried and tested the site, but it's worth the sharing. And finally, I can sleep better at night, knowing I can back up my photos without much trouble.

For today, I give Pixelpipe ***** for bearing uploading good news.

Warm-The-Heart Recipes: Ferna

My girls love watching Giada de Laurentis preparing meals in the afternoons. Fortunately, they are smart enough not to drone in front of cartoon shows after school. It gives me inspiration though as moodiness overcome my kitchen duty. Still, another favorite pasttime is finding my fave baked goodies on the Net. I have kept Ferna's site close to my heart ever since I discovered it one Sunday five years ago. Occasional visits always make me drool...and excited. I love baking but I'm just too darn lazy.

But, my girls, they need all the foodie experiences they can get. I can see Giada in their eyes, and that makes me happy.

For today, I give Ferna's site, ***** for lighting that sleeping chef within me.
