From the South

Guest post of the week by Brittany Booker

Being from the south meant when the opportunity came to take over this goat farm I jumped on it. Sure I’d lived in Manhattan for years but I was really itching to do something good for the soul, to work with my hands and not look back. So anyway, here I am raising goats and looking up farmers markets to sell my meat and cheese on my satellitestarinternet.com internet connection – it’s a totally different life out here than the one I was living. I think it’s amazing being part of something bigger than just a company and I love that I get to do something tangible and that I’m tired at the end of the day. Not many of my friends from New York can relate to this side of me but that’s okay – they’re there for a different part of me, the city side, and I have farmer friends who I can talk to about this kind of stuff. The best part is that I’ve got fresh goat cheese around anytime I want it now!


Valentine's Day Freebie Just for Fun

Valentine's Day is just around the corner. Along with your more typical VDay gifts -- flowers, chocolate, perfume, fancy meals, diamond jewelry, and so on -- you can treat your sweetie to a modern-day fave such as the Kindle and Kindle books or accessories.

But you can also do something that won't cost you but a tiny bit of time. You can learn how to give her Valentine's greetings in a different language. If you have a Latin love, learn how to say Happy Valentine's Day in Spanish (you might want to learn Spanish anyway). Or if you just want to sound sexy, try Happy Valentine's Day in French. Ooh-la-la. Or just for fun, you can tell your sweetie Happy Valentine's Day in Japanese. (And it's the easiest of all!)

If this little exercise gives you the bug, language learning software is arguably the fastest, most convenient way to teach yourself a new language.
