I love Sunday night at 9:00 when I hear the Game of Thrones opening music. One of my favorite characters is Daenerys Targaryen, Khaleesi, Mother of Dragons. For the end game, my bests are on Targaryen and John Snow ruling the Seven Kingdoms.
For one of my classes, I’m working on a project related to the GM ignition switch recall housed on WordPress: The GM Ignition Switch Recall Site. Until early May, the deadline for the project, I’ll continue building the site.
I could really use your help! I am looking for people to take a quick survey about the recall, and respondents do not need to have owned a GM or been involved in an ignition switch related crash. For the site, I’m also putting together a gallery of key-ring photographs. If you could complete the survey and/or send me a copy of your key-ring, I would really appreciate it!
If you were one of the folks affected by the recall, I’d love to hear about your experience with the recall process. If you are willing, please send me photographs of your vehicle and/or recall notice or anything else you would be receptive to sharing.
2.7 million cars recalled
84 deaths (as confirmed by GM compensation fund)
almost 1,200 injuries (as confirmed by GM compensation fund)

Our backyard in the snow. I have to admit it’s a pretty sight, although I’d still rather be in Arizona.
The snow almost reached Lily’s belly! Walter hates being in the snow, but Norman enjoys eating it.
Of course, we had a tofurky, which is our traditional Thanksgiving meal. I had my first tofurky in 1998, just a few years after Turtle Island Foods was founded. I am thankful for them.
George didn’t want to bake a pie – fair enough, since he made dinner. Since I wanted a desert with applies, I found this recipe: Microwave Apple Crisp. (I made the oven version.) The only modifications were using Earth Balance for the butter and reducing to three apples. Peeling, slicing and coring the apples was a breeze with my Pampered Chef Apple peeler. While I usually avoid single-use items, the apple peeler is so worth it. Pretty tasty!

I am so sad that such another violent, senseless act happened in OKC. I hope all will remember this crime reflects only on the perpetrator, not his faith.
My tribe, the Choctaw Nation, always sends great birthday cards! These cards are almost always the first to arrive. I much prefer mailed cards than email missives or even text greetings.
I love Pinterest! If you are on the site, please follow me! If I had two wishes for Pinterest, I would want to be able to pin pages without images using a customizable default image and to be able to group boards into collections. Alas, I do not work for Pinterest nor do I have programming skills.
As of today, I have 118 boards with more than 9,000 pins. My boards are well-organized, and you can pick certain boards to follow or select “Follow All.” Currently, my most pinned item is “Pit Bulls Are Just About the Nicest Dogs There Are.” My favorite of my boards is “Happiness Project” with quotes, strategies, and images related to happiness, meaningfulness, compassion, empathy, and positive psychology.
You can also search the millions of pins (over 30 million as of March 2014) for your personal interests. Once you’ve entered a search term, Pinterest gives you suggestions for limiting the search. You can also look for pins, boards, or pinners that include the search term as indicated in the figure below.
