Michael Buble duet with 15 year old boy

This video has been around for a while, but it still makes me happy!


Mabel's Labels camp packs!

"Can I go to sleepaway camp this year?"

"Of course you can Sweetie."

In my head: Doh!  Summer's coming up fast and I don't know what the kids schedules are going to be.  And they need new summer clothes and swimwear and sandals.  And labels!  We're almost out of labels for all of this stuff!

Thanks goodness for Mabel's Labels!

Mini name stickers are dishwasher / microwave safe and UV resistant labels are not only great for lunch and snack containers, they're also fabulous for electronic gadgets, notebooks, pens, markers, and all the little odds and ends.  For bigger items, they also have equally wonderful (just bigger) name stickers.

Tag-mates™ are clothing labels that are washer / dryer safe and best of all stick tight to clothing labels without ironing.  Some of the clothes are worn and faded, but the labels are still going strong!  (Of course if you really want iron on labels, they have those too!)

Growing feet mean new shoes, sandals, and boots too, which means new shoe labels are in order.

To help you save some money, they offer fabulous combo packs.

This year, Mabel is offering two brand-new label combo: a new “Day Camp Labels Pack*” and a new “Sleepaway Camp Labels Pack,**” available until the end of July.

We placed our order on Saturday, after lunch.  Ordering the Sleepaway combo was easy-peasy:

Customize your label text, icon, and colours in the lower right.

You can see what your labels will look like in the upper left.

You can even pick single colour designs too, just click on "solid" in stead of "multicolour":

We settled on this "foxy" design:
Guess what arrived in the mail on Wednesday?

And it was filled with lots of crunchy label goodness:

Everything was perfect!

Thank you Mabel's Labels for your continued awesomeness!

Things that bring me joy

If I were to get rid of everything I own that doesn't bring me joy, I'd have to spend a fortune buying back a bunch of things I need!

Shout out to technical forums!

Thank you to everyone who contributes to technical forums.

I would especially like to thank poster Michael and participant Thomas77 in this six year old thread "Win7 Pro x64 bit HP LaserJet 3015 driver problem" on the Microsoft forums.

This is good advice that's good for versions of Windows even beyond 7:

Try to install printer driver with the following method:
1. Click Start, click Control Panel and double click Devices and Printers.
2. Click Add a Printer.
3. Select "Add a local printer".
4. Select "Create a new port". Choose "Local Port" as the type of the port.
5. In the box "Enter a port name", type the address as the following format.
\\ [IP address of the host computer]\[The Share Name of the printer]
Then click Next.
6. Choose the correct driver in the driver list. If no available driver, click the button Windows Update, wait for the process finishes and then look for the driver again.
7. Finish the installation.
