The Perfect Dinner Party Hostess Gift

It's not often that I write about what a charming, gracious guest I am. I should though because then more people would invite me over and I would bring them the perfect hostess gift and they would spread the word and I wouldn't be able to handle my social calendar. I would get a driver …

Please Excuse Me, I Need to go to the Chatroom

I just read a blog about the etiquette of charging your cell phone in public. The post was Freshly Pressed, which means featured by WordPress. If a blogger is lucky enough to have a post Freshly Pressed, they are being exposed to a much larger audience and may have 1000s of hits to their blog …
