Look Who's Blogging Now...

Can a 10 year old handle blogging? Yes, I promised to monitor all his cyber foot prints, so don't worry.

I have found that blogging is good training for children.
- It makes my kid conscious of writing correctly. Especially in these jejemon times, that is a big help.
- He will learn good manners and how to treat people correctly in the net.
- He will also learn to be cautious about the boundaries of the net world.
- Most importantly, he gets lots of practice of how to organize information in his head. It's his inherent skill, fixing data neatly in his brain, but this is a great exercise.

Product Review: CDO No Pork No Beans

When I opened it, lo and behold!, the can had mostly sauce in it, and when I washed the sauce off, the can contained about a TABLESPOON of beans. About a centimeter high worth of measly beans.

I kid you not.

I'm accustomed to pork and beans without pork, but pork and beans WITHOUT PORK AND WITHOUT BEANS is robbery.

CDO shoulda just come out with a can and labelled it "sweet, rusty red sauce".
