News from the Bermuda Triangle of Ky

Links checked 12/12/13

New Year, new look. Despite the fact that I do like my white on black, I did hear those that gave opinions on my layout and designed something different. We'll try this for a while, maybe it will grow on me. I do like the color theme which was inspired by the full background, photos I took of a sunset and sunrise. I'm posting it here because I do like it so much. What, never thought you could have a sunset and sunrise at the same time?

My hard drive, the important one, may or may not be dying and hubby is dragging his feet about fixing it (and upgrading me to Windows 7) so the postings I planned on will be delayed, obviously. I refuse to trust it not to lose my digital camera pictures, a folder that is so big it is impossible to back it up. Did you know the price of a new hard drive is over twice what it was earlier this year, from $40 to $90 approximately? It only goes to prove that flooding in Asia does effect us Americans & in all sorts of interesting ways... and now you've learnt that most hard drives on the market come from overseas, surprise surprise.

I do have good news though, working, non bleeding color shifting flakes- flakes because they are automotive, not the Nfu Oh kind, sorry. I also have a couple positive store reviews coming and products from those stores and maybe franken recipes featuring those lovely Moon Dusts and Star Bites from TKB Trading... if I ever paint my nails. I have way more fun playing around with the colors than using them properly.

I finally broke down and bought a bottle of Essie Luxe Effects Shine of the Times at my local Walgreens for $8, a price that normally would make me cringe. If I bought Nubar 2010 off eBay, I would've ended up paying that anyway but it doesn't really take the sting out... This should leave you with no question as to why I don't just buy Nfu Oh flakies but I want those flakes.

Ok, that was somewhat disconnected, not my normal style of writing but my mind has already shifted gears. Hope ya'll have had a good day. I can say "ya'll", I'm from Kentucky. -MK


  1. This is so much easier on the eyes, love it, thanks!

  2. I like the new look too. And am looking forward to your upcoming posts!

  3. I like your new layout and white background :)

  4. Thanks for the feedback and compliments!

  5. I have Nubar 2010 and Essie Shine of the Times. I like the Essie better, I have to say. It has twice the density of flakies! At least when comparing the two bottles I have.

    And yes, hard drive prices have gone crazy, and hard drives aren't very easy to get at the moment for people like my hubby, who works on computers for a living.

    1. I can always ask my hubby about their suppliers.

      Isn't it nice to have "in house" tech support?


Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog- and for leaving a comment if you do. Some get away from me but I try to respond to every one.
