September 14 of 30

This morning I got an issue of Glow Magazine in the mail. Funny thing is - I didn't order this. So either, someone got me a subscription and paid for it, though I have no idea who, and I'll be getting a subscription in the mail (though I don't usually read this magazine), or someone put my name in for a subscription and I'll get a bill in the mail soon. If this is the case, I'm not paying for it, and I'll have just gotten a free issue - so thank you to whomever sent me the free issue(s). But I know it's not me, because I write me name in a special way when I sign up for magazines, it's my way of knowing if they give my name off to lists and telemarketing etc. So that I know if I get mail for a certain name, then so-and-so magazine sold/gave my name & information somewhere.

I got a new case for the clicker for my house alarm system. Remember I posted about it breaking? Well, I got a new clicker, this time a nice silvery pink clicker case. Now we just need to transfer the electronic part on the inside, and get it to work. It's not as easy as it looks. I love the new case, I'll photograph it once it's working. I am glad we were able to find a case for it, because a new one costs 75$ and it was all because the loop to go around the keychain broke. I tried melting it together with fire, but it melted the plastic away, instead of together.

Today all of a sudden my hotmail that I used (graphicdesignchick at hotmail dot com) - the one listed on my sidebar, is now in Windows Live. I didn't ask them to do this. I absolutely hate that they change it, without consulting me first. My other account, which I've had for 10 years plus, is still in "old" hotmail. But this account, which I've had for just about 2 years now (when I entered graphic design school), was changed over. I do NOT like the new look of Windows Live, and I'm not used to it. I have a ton of emails sitting in my inbox, and I'm just too frustrated to use it. I sent hotmail feedback annoyed that they did this, and maybe they'll change it back? If not, I'm thinking of switching to gmail for my regular email address (that I can access anywhere), though I don't like that fact that in gmail you can't create folders to store saved emails. That I do not like. Maybe yahoo is like hotmail? I'll have to check it out. I don't want to transfer everything to my Robyn's Nest email, because it's harder to access that email on the road. Hmm! I am a bit behind on my emails, I know, I've been really bad. Things have been a little busy around here - so if you are expecting an email back from me - please be patient!

Tomorrow I'm off to the Roxham Wool Festival. Not sure what to expect, but I'm very excited. I'm meeting Janet, Caroline & Mona in the morning and we're off. I'm going back on Sunday, and I'm meeting Angela, Alison & Kadi, and then we're off. I'm also meeting up with SP11 Hostess Kerry down at the festival. Very excited to meet her. (No idea what she looks like, so I guess she'll have to find me!)

yeah...my hotmail got switched over too yesterday (without my asking them to), and i'm not terribly happy with it either. grr...

yahoo mail beta does let you create folders to store saved messages (i have it as my other account), but the beta is kind of slow.

good luck!

Do you have an optimum card for shopper's drugmart? Glow is tied in with that and I used to get them for free because I shopped there a lot.

my two hotnmail accounts switched over last week too....I don't like it when that happens either, and I didn't like the way it looked. I found somewhere that it said something like if you don't like the new one you can use the classic version...and clicked on it and it looks the same as the old one now (only the email addresses don't show up on the right hand side when I type up a new email).

I believe that the Glow magazine comes free with your Shopper's Drug Mart points card. I have been getting the magazine for some time now, and I never subscribed, and I've never paid a dime. I also don't really enjoy reading it, so it usually ends up getting cut up for school projects. It's all good! :)

Do you have a Shopper's Optimum card? I believe Glow is free with your card.

you can go ahead and change to gmail - you can save things to folders (it's just called archiving - just a little different, but it works the same way - just attach labels to things and then they are all saved together and out of the inbox...) so yeah, have fun!
