Apparently, in the Icelandic language, my last name: Benus, means Nude.

You should fall into bed, exhausted.
Sleep was made to relax you and give you all the rest you need.
Learning a while ago about the Eye-Fi Wireless SD Camera Storage cards got me really excited.
However, at the time, I didn’t really have a need for one.

You’re probably used to seeing shortcodes in WordPress. Shortcodes normally look like [shortcode] or [shortcode option="option" setting="setting"]. Plugins and Themes add shortcodes to extend the functionality of WordPress. WordPress sees the square brackets and replaces what we see in the editor with some other content. Whether the shortcode is replaced with one line of text, or a very large and complex block of code depends on what WordPress is instructed to do.
The programming is very easy and the possibilities are endless.

A wonderful bath toy idea from The Brooding Hen!
My son always wants me to hold toys, or my hands, or anything for him to pour water over while in the tub.
I cannot wait to grab some scrap pvc pipe and fittings from the garage and stick them to the wall for bath time fun!
