bo deaf old dog

Well 2014 is ending on a great note! I added to my little family a new addition - an Australian Shepard named Bo! (seen above) Isn't he adorable? This past weekend, the Pet Alliance of Orlando ran a great campaign which allowed anyone to adopt a dog over the weekend for free. How generous was that? Especially since most of these dogs / cats being surrendered had to have vet checks, shots, medication, etc. All that came free if I adopted a dog! (or a cat for others) I had been planning on getting a dog since my Aussie Shepard / Border Collie mix moved on to the farmhouse of dogs in the sky 2 years ago. Still miss that dog (Buffy) greatly. So since I had a new dog [...]

Jennifer Stinnett, Santa, Vintage Santa

Family is always something special. You grow up with them, live with them, go through turmoil with them, everything in your life is done with your family around in one way or another. This past month I had the opportunity to spend some time with my grandparents in Wisconsin. My grandmother has been going through old photos and provided me an envelope full of what I like to call ... "vintage memories". Because "Vintage Memories" sounds a LOT better than ... pre-historic Jennifer years. In this envelope she had some of my early and elementary year photos. Like most kids - I was the awkward glass wearing brace fitted misfit in school. Especially in my high school years. It's amazing how one can look back and remember all those "important" [...]

evil personal assistant download

I've been on a mission to improve my time management skills and to incorporate a more balanced lifestyle. All work and no play makes Jennifer a cranky girl. Part of this process has been to locate apps and procedures that can help my productivity and keep me on track! In the beginning of this year I had an iPhone and I loved utilizing Siri to schedule appointments. She was quick, got the information right and scheduled things on my calendar. I have since moved on to Samsung / Andriod. I do prefer Andriod but looking back ... I miss Siri and some of the capabilities. Scheduling appointments namely one of them. So I set out to find an Andriod version of Siri. I found something compatible, but the verdict is [...]

csi, crime scene investigation orlando

Well, keeping with my #20NewThings program I decided to do something a little goofy ... participate in local tourist entertainment. Living in Orlando, Florida you may have expected me to head out to one of many numerous theme parks. Did I? No .. why? because I've been to them and we're doing something new. So over to one of those discount everything sites, I found the local CSI Experience available for a price of $12 to participate. I was excited ... a whole CSI event for $12?? Could it be true? It was ... and it's what I like to now refer to as CSI: Orlando. (minus all the really cool actors) We started by walking into a building that had windows but everything was blacked out. I was always [...]

yeah but excuses

I realize my title may seem a bit harsh, but it's truly how I've been seeing things in people lately. First of all, let me start by saying, I ALWAYS meet amazing people. The interesting thing about that .... sometimes it seems I'm the only one that realizes they are amazing! Every day people do things that amaze me and yet we all consistently sell ourselves short. We think we can't become more, do what we secretly hope in our minds or move forward with a special plan we have. We're all so full of excuses, so full of "yeah, but's .." Stop and think for a minute about one of those truly good videos that went viral (without the help of a marketing department)? If you think about the [...]

Angry women, hammer and laptop

Continuing on in my #20NewThings experiment ... this one may not be something that I realistically sought out to do for my #20NewThings, but it is something that stretched my brain limits. I think I'd like to start off this blog post by saying that if you have the financial means and it makes sense to create a website for a business ... you should always, always pay for a person of experience to design your site. In my case ... I needed a re-design on this website which makes me no money ... is just a means to write and when you put it on paper ... it's about the worst investment I have right now. For me - this blog is an expression of creative life results, things [...]

Jennifer Stinnett, beach

Not many people in my life know my background. Those few that do I consider to be my good friends. Those are the people that stay in your life - going in and out at times - but always seem to come around despite their (or others) judgments about your or themselves. There are very few people like this in any persons life. I would suggest however, we all have them. My background is actually a rather humorous one. I'll admit at the time I was going through the events, they weren't so humorous - but over time and changed view - it's something you can chuckle at rather than let it fester. Whoever said "Attitude is everything" was correct. Your attitude changes how your perceive the world around you. [...]
