Mother’s Day iPod

I was fortunate to have my mom with me during Mother’s Day this year. I gave her an iPod, which is kind of funny. Up until now, she’s never wanted one. She had no idea how they worked, nor if she’d ever use the thing. She took it into an Apple store with her, and explained she had no clue what to do. They talked in circles around her about syncing and such. She walked out more confused than when they started.

Mom is a trooper though! She says that when she gets home, she will sync the iPod, since she has to choose between “sync or swim”. Yes – I get my sense of humor from her. She loves technology, of course. She still has the first transistor radio her father bought her several years ago – and it still works!

The iPod I bought for her was personalized, and even has her email address engraved on the back. During the video, I taught her to open the browser and search for something using the touch screen. I explained to her about Apps, and I have a feeling once she dives into looking at them she’ll go crazy! There are just so many cool things she can do using her iPod.

Did she roll her eyes when I told her she could subscribe to my podcast?!?! Seriously?!?!

Just kidding, Mom. You know I love you, and think you’re the best. Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day

Today while looking around our community, I came across an excellent write-up on Geeks regarding Mother’s Day. The author lists reasons he is thankful for his Mom. I can identify – and agree – with many of those reasons, and I’m sure come up with others! Don’t forget to honor or remember your Mom tomorrow during Mother’s Day in the US. Show her you love and appreciate her, even if you cannot buy a gift. Sometimes just a hug and spending time with her is all she could ever want, anyway.

There are many other things going on in our community today, as well. Make sure after you spend time with your Mom, you take the time to check in on everyone else!

Last Minute Mother's Day Flowers

If you’re like me, you have a birth mother. Now some people’s proper mothers may not be their birth mothers, but that doesn’t make the mother (or mothers) who raised you any less motherly. Americans celebrate having a mother on the second Sunday in May. This weekend is approaching fast, so you’d better have your duckies in a row if you intend on keeping Mom happy. If you were borne of something other than a mother, then… you don’t have to worry about Mother’s Day at all.

Splash of Color

Ponzi ordered our respective mothers flowers through FlowersFast earlier this week. They’ve always been good for us, largely because we know and trust the owner. There are a zillion places to order flowers online, but should we children stop there? What else might a mom want for Mother’s Day? Is it too late to sneak something into her gift arrangement? My mom would rather receive flower seeds that she could plant on her own, rather than stemmed anythings that will likely wither and die wtihin a matter of days. Beyond that, I’m a horrible judge of what people might want for a holiday present (I think we’d all like to forget the nasty “Virus of the Month Club” incident of ’97).

Since I rely on Outlook 2007’s relatively craptacular spam filter, I’ve seen more than my fair share of Mother’s Day spam – with most of these advertisements reminding me to order flowers before it’s too late. Here’s your reminder: do it now. If I were you, I’d look for a good flower coupon before clicking the “Buy Now’ button. I should talk to Bob and ask him if we could score a special flower discount code for y’all, eh?
