Its Probably on YouTube

            Whatever did we do before the internet and more specifically, You Tube?

            Last summer I learned how to shorten the sleeves on my husband's new tux on You Tube and I did it! My friend learned how to adjust the timing on her industrial sewing machine on You Tube and saved herself a trip to the repairman.  Fantastic! I learned how to cook Thai style noodles on You Tube. The possibilities are nearly endless. Here is only a smattering of some of the useful things you can learn on You Tube, and you may want to direct your children's attention to the first two.

  1. Val,
    I may blog and tweet but I never think to use YouTube. How archaic of me. Thanks, guess what I'll be doing today?
