A new feature... Snap Shots link previews

Tonight, while reading another local food blog, Restaurant Widow, I noticed that her links had previews that displayed when I moused over them... I thought it was pretty cool, so I went to the Snap Shots website and installed it on this blog - yes, I know, blatant plagiarism of sorts, perhaps, but as I learned a few months back, give credit where credit is due. Thanks for the tip, Restaurant Widow!

So take a peek at the link before you go there - just mouse over it.

Nifty, eh?

Another EBay coup!

I recently added to my collection of Ecko Flint utensils with an EBay win of a set that included 3 new pieces for me: a flat icing spatula, A small (about 5") strainer, and a short offset spatula with a long blade.

The slotted spoon goes into Boogie's collection for him to use when he's older and on his own (I'll get to keep my set then!) and the ladle and fork will go to the annual garage sale, since I have 3 of each now. All in all, a very exciting purchase, and a great value at only about $8 a piece including shipping.

It's been a pretty heavy past 2 months on EBay for these tools, with 6 or 7 sets appearing after a year of nothin'. It appears to be slowing down, though and that's good, since I've already spent my quota for a while...
