This morning between meetings, I found myself burried in all the new “themes” Google offers for your iGoogle homepage “skin”….so, I put aside a few emails, because THIS was important! If you don’t already have your homepage set to a personalized iGoogle homepage, (where you can drop in news feeds/weather/updates/blog readers/daily quotes/etc…) search for “iGoogle artist themes” and check them out!

Here are just a few of what you have choices from: artists Todd Oldham, Tory Burch, Dolce&Gabbana, to musicians Missy Higgins, Coldplay, Beastie Boys, and popular icons Lance Armstrong, and the Wiggles (SICK!!!), oh- and plenty of anime…..

Screenshot of a portion of your options:

Go have fun and enjoy!! Gosh, I love Google.

Below is a press release on Blue Bell’s website about the new AMAZING ice cream flavor! It is deeeeelish! I always get excited for new flavors (or seasonal flavors…ahem, WeddingCake.) I HIGHLY suggest you go get yourself a tub and try the delectable ice cream. You know it’s a worthy flavor when you’re willing to throw out less worthy items in the freezer just to make room for the new Blue Bell flavor… it happens.

PRESS RELEASE:

BRENHAM – Blue Bell Creameries is proud to honor 4-H as it celebrates over 100 years of successful youth development with the introduction of Centennial Cupcake Ice Cream. To sweeten the deal, the Little Creamery is donating a portion of the sales to promote 4-H educational programs.

Centennial Cupcake Ice Cream is a delicious cake batter ice cream with pieces of yellow cake, a chocolate icing swirl and four-leaf clover sprinkles.

“4-H benefits so many young people with its youth development programs,” said Paul Kruse, Blue Bell CEO and president. “This is just a small token of our appreciation. 4-H has been around for over 100 years. Blue Bell just finished celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2007, so we understand how special it is to reach the century mark.”

4-H is a community of more than 6.5 million young people ages 5-19 across America who are learning leadership, citizenship and life skills. 4-H programs are available to young people in all 50 states, U.S. territories and U.S. military installations worldwide. Visit 4-H.org for more information

Blue Bell has also created a unique carton for Centennial Cupcake Ice Cream. It features four children in 4-H T-shirts and the youth development program’s widely recognized four-leaf clover emblem.

In Texas, the flavor will be sold in a slightly different carton. This year marks the 100th anniversary of 4-H in the state of Texas. A logo designed for the anniversary adorns the carton.

“We worked with 4-H to create a package that symbolizes what they are all about,” Kruse said. “The organization is for the kids. I think the smiling faces capture the spirit of 4-H just perfectly.”

Centennial Cupcake Ice Cream will only be sold in the 17 states where Blue Bell products are available. Blue Bell Ice Cream can be purchased in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas.

The half gallon flavor is now available in stores.

Photos from the Lymphoma walk-a-thon in Dallas at Fair Park…. we were team “Viva Italia” with the Italian Club of Dallas! The weather was P-E-R-F-E-C-T-I-O-N!! Gus (Brian’s pup) was well liked of course. He greeted just about everyone, including all the other dogs too, of course.
