This is a weblog, so here is another log of some items from the web:

If SAHMs (stay-at-home moms) received a salary for their work, they’d earn $131,471 according to Salary.com. That figure was determined by using average salaries for the jobs that SAHMs do, such as cook, day care, and CEO, including overtime.

For moviegoers, Loews Cineplex will begin publishing the actual start time for a film in addition to the time that the advertisements and trailers start. I don’t think it’s going to make much of a difference, especially for movies where the viewer is concerned about getting a good seat in the theater.

MSN Money is previewing a new version of their website. It includes a new ETF (Exchange-Traded Funds) section. ETFs are getting a lot of attention lately. Trend or fad?

The site also includes a new currency converter in addition to MSN Money’s older offerings such as columnists, news, and search. It’s worth exploring for a couple of minutes.

Obviously the article goes into more detail, so check it out.

Now, from the why-didn’t-I-think-of-that department, Cup-a-cake, the plastic individual cupcake protector. Description: “This unique container will hold a frosted cupcake in place with protrusions positioned in such a way that the cupcake will not move within the container if bounced, jiggled, or turned upside down.”
