Why aren’t there mosquitoes in Havana?

Posted by cybertoad on 06/07/2016 in misc |

While in Havana, I did not see a single mosquito. My aunt explained to me that it was because the state was fumigating homes (inside your home, not just spraying in the streets). On my last day we heard, then saw them coming down the street. Fascinating to me since here in the US most […]

Review: The Sisterhood

Posted by cybertoad on 08/27/2015 in misc |

The Sisterhood by Helen Bryan My rating: 2 of 5 stars This book started off strong but then it dragged on as more and more characters were added. As others have said in their reviews, I stopped being able to tell them apart. I think the story should have split itself between the modern day […]


LEGO Build Days

Posted by cybertoad on 02/18/2015 in fun stuff, misc |

I grew up playing with LEGOs. I had a whole town system with streets and working trains and even bricks that gave my town light in the evening hours. I always know I’d get new sets every Christmas but the surprise was in what set I’d be getting. It had, of course, been years since […]



Revisiting a Wishlist from 2011

Posted by cybertoad on 02/02/2015 in misc |

I came across this post I made back in March 2011 that had a short “wish-list” and I was happy to see that I had crossed off most of the items on the list! > return to Spain sooner rather than later – not yet, but this really is going to be a priority trip […]


It’s alive!

Posted by cybertoad on 02/02/2015 in misc |

Thanks so much to Mike from Spoon & Knife, my very neglected blog is alive once more. Poor thing had to go through through two major WordPress version updates but it is now back with a new theme. Thanks to the upgrade, I am also enjoying some new widgets and plug-ins including this cool map […]

Another year has gone by and last Thursday, I entered the last year in my thirties. It was a quieter birthday than most years… Kenny and I haven’t even technically gone out for my birthday dinner yet because we have been busy with other events on our calendar. It didn’t help that I was sick […]


New postition at work has me so busy!

Posted by cybertoad on 08/24/2011 in commentary, misc |

Eep! The work week has flown by! I am in a new position at work – new department too. Even changed floors and cubicles. After five years in one department, I am now in marketing as the Social Media Manager for a large restaurant company. I am over two major brands which have over 300 […]


High School Friends

Posted by cybertoad on 06/14/2011 in me, misc, photography |

The 20th High School Reunion was nice – good to see old faces, many who still looks the same! Our headmistress Sister Mary Jane (I attended a private all girls Catholic high school) has not changed but she sure seems way less intimidating now. 🙂 Took a tour of the high school as well and […]


Has it been 20 years??!

Posted by cybertoad on 06/09/2011 in me, misc |

“I don’t want to brag or make anybody jealous or anything… but I can still fit into my earrings that I wore in high school!” 🙂 So this weekend is my 20th High School Reunion… yikes, it frightens me to think that I have lived longer since I graduated than the age I was when […]


I finally updated www.cybertoad.us!

Posted by cybertoad on 11/18/2008 in misc |

This may not seem like much but I finally updated my splash page. I hadn’t touched it for a couple of years and hated the design so I just kept ignoring it. I found a usable template for free from Elated Pagekits. I completely customized it with my links & my image but I couldn’t […]
