Inexpensive Solution for grinding powders

This tip was passed along to us by a participant in our Forum(http://www.mixupyourmakeup.tkbtrading.com/). If you haven't checked it out yet, do! There are some awesome tips posted there.

Anyway, for grinding powders, you can use a kitchen blender and a mason jar. Here is the hyperlink for the tip. http://www.elise.com/recipes/archives/001357tip_blender_and_mason_jar.php

It shows you that the blade portion of the kitchen blender can screw onto a mason jar, you then place the jar on the blender motor and press "blend".

Have Fun!

Google Pack: office software for free

In case you hadn't heard already, Google offers a FREE download of office software. The Star Office Software includes word processing, spreadsheet and presentation software. It's completely free, easy to download and it can save documents in all kinds of different formats which can be read by all kinds of computers.

Don't fret about a learning curve, the software is a lot like the programs you are used to working with, there really is little learning curve.

In addition to this free software, the Google Pack includes other options. The one I really like is Picassa, which is a photo downloading and editing program. You can also get spyware, and other groovy stuff.

6 Billion Others, an inspiration website for humankind

This suggested website has nothing to do with my usual topics, but I found it interesting and beautiful, so I wanted to pass it along to you.

www.6billionothers.com is a project site where people from all over the world are asked to talk about various things. Listen to men and women from every continent answer questions such as "what is the meaning of life?", "what was your happiest day", "what are dreams?", "what are your fears?"

Take a moment to share in the babble of humanity.
