Carrot dip

Hello everyone!

today, I have a story to tell you...

Once upon a time, in a little house in Florida, my mom announced: "And now we come to the age old question of what to bring to church tonight."  *laughs.* so, my dad said maybe we should do something different, and since I was creative, I could make it and post it to my fave website. I agreed. and so, he did some sort of researching on his 1st gen iPad (sooo old fashioned,) and he found this.

Conclusion: I made it, and it turned out really great, and was highly appreciated at church!

it turned out great!

Again, here is the link:LINK!

Please look forward to my next post!

Siri tips and tricks!

Hello , everyone!
Today I'm going to make a post about Siri tips and tricks. As you know I've previously made a post about Siri but today I'm going to have a continuation which includes some funny things (like the previous) as well as some new tips that may make it more useful to use Siri. 

Tip 1#: Is Siri saying your name really funny? tell Siri  "learn how to say my name" and she can do just that.

Say your name upon prompt, then she will have a few pronunciations; listen to all of them, and, when have found the one you're happy with press select. Or if none of them sound right, tap "tell Siri again"

It will do this for both your first and last name.

Tip #2 edit what you say

This one is interesting. Although Siri is 85% of the time accurate, she can't always quite catch what you say. Like this, for example...
If something like this happens, simply tap on the words Siri thought you said, and edit it accordingly:
Then hit done.

Gimmick #1 "how old are you, Siri?"
This joke has several possible outcomes, but I thought this one was especially funny.

Gimmick #2 "read me a story"

This is the most text I have ever seen Siri say. Oh, and you have to be patient with this trick. it may take you several several times to get her to read you a story. Just say "read me a story" over and over until she tells you, well, a story.

Gimmick #3 "sing a song"

This one is like the story gimmick. Say "sing a song" over and over until Siri finally gives in.

Please look forward to my next post!

Movie Monday: the Lego Movie!

Hello, everyone!

today since it is Monday (which, for this blog, is Movie Monday) I am going to review the movie...

The Lego Movie, by Warner Bros.

Genre: Comedy, Adventure
Family Safe?: yes, definitely
Stars: 5 (great Movie!)
is it a movie based off of a book?: no

overall description: it is a really great movie, with a interesting story, and it is littered with jokes and comedy.

story line:  here it is, taken from wikipedia: "The wizard Vitruvius attempts to protect a superweapon called the "Kragle" from the evil Lord Business. He fails to do so, but prophesies that a person called "the Special" will find the Piece of Resistance capable of stopping the Kragle.
Eight and a half years later, an ordinary construction worker named Emmet Brickowski from Bricksburg comes across a woman named Wyldstyle who searches for something after hours at Emmet's construction site. When he investigates, Emmet falls into a hole and finds the Piece of Resistance. Compelled to touch it, Emmet experiences vivid visions and passes out. He awakens with the Piece of Resistance attached to his back in the custody of Bad Cop, Business' lieutenant. There, Emmet learns of Business' plans to freeze the world with the Kragle, revealed to be a tube of Krazy Glue with the label partially rubbed out."

how to make a Frappuccino

Hello, everyone!

just so you know, this week I am taking a break from Movie Monday. I will resume reveiwing movies next week. but now....

How to make a Frappuccino two different ways!

for recipe one you will need:

as much yogurt as will fill the glass you are serving it in

4-5 small chocolate candies

a little butter

vanilla extract

some sugar

optional: coffee, IF that is how you like your Frappuccino, but when I go to Starbucks I just get the cream stuff without coffee, yum.

optional: whipped cream. I would have used this, but we didn't have any.

all ready!

how to make it: get your yougurt into a blender, then get out your 1/4 cup measuring cup, and your tablespoon measure. fill the tablespoon measure with vanilla extract and pour in blender. now, listen CAREFULLY: fill your 1/4 cup about only a QUARTER full with sugar, THEN pour. If you fill even 1/4 cup with sugar, it will be too bitter.

unwrap two chocolates, put on burner with some butter, stirring and watching as you do this recipe.

put 2 other chocolates in the blender, then blend. pour, but wait, there's more...

 as SOON as the chocolate is done melting, turn off the burner and take it off the burner.

 pour it on the drink!

optional: add starbucks coffee, stir and top with whipped cream before pouring chocolate.

recipe two: follow directions as above, but use ice cream instead of yogurt. maybe Starbucks ice cream?

please look forward to my next post, and please comment if you have anything you would like to say or if you would like to suggest and idea for a future post!
