This weekend, my husband took over that role and synced up my printer with the new internet service.
I guess it took him a while to figure it out, but everything is up and running/printing now.
Thank you hubby!

The email address that helped secure my first set of clients. That billed my first invoices.
The internet company would lose service at least once a month. Twice was not surprising either.
Since I am only able to do the majority of my work before 5 a.m., I HAVE to have internet service in the early morning.
So, I have switched to AT&T. It came highly recommended and it's about half cheaper.

So what are they? They’re called QR codes and though they started in Japan in the mid-90s, they’ve only recently become popular in the US. QR codes are currently one of the most buzz-worthy tools for marketers and they seem to be popping up on just about everything, from magazines to postcards to food packaging.

Here you go...
- Puzzles can help develop a child's reasoning and problem solving skills. Even the simplest jigsaw will require them to think about what they do as they try to put the puzzle together.
- Puzzles can also help a child to develop their fine motor skills when they are young. Having to pick up individual pieces and slot them into place without breaking up the bits they have already completed can be a complex task to learn. But, it can reinforce some skills that are essential to their development.
- Putting a puzzle together will also work on the child's hand-eye co-ordination and their understanding of shapes and colours.
- The subjects on puzzles can also be used as educational aids. An alphabet or number puzzle, for example, will be fun for the child to complete but is also a good opportunity for a parent to chat to them about letters and numbers and to reinforce learning.
- Solving a puzzle can do wonders for a child's self-esteem. As puzzles get more challenging for them they also learn useful life skills such as seeing things through to completion and trying different approaches to problem solving.
One of the biggest benefits for children here is the fact that puzzles are fun. Many children will resist learning at home if they know it is happening. Enjoying making up a puzzle, however, could mask the fact that they are also having an educational experience.
