But, when the comment roll is at the bottom of the blog post, and you have to choose between Google Account, Open ID, Live Journal, Word Press, etc. IT WON'T LET ME POST!! I get so aggravated! For example, I wanted to post a comment here so that I could be included in the giveaway, but for some reason I can't. I always write what I want to post, then click on Google Account, and then post my comment... Nothing Happens!
Someone PLEASE help me! Tell me if my settings are wrong or what I am missing. I hope it is an easy fix - something I am just easily forgetting.

To start the lattice top, I cut my strips. I place every other strip on the pie (so that I make sure that I still have long ones for going the other way on the pie). The key to making a lattice top is remember which pieces you need to pull back. Every other piece, you pull back like in the picture below, and place down your strip. Then you place back the strips over your horizontal strip.
Next, you pull back the other strips you didnt pull back the first time, and place down another strip.
Continue every other strip pulling back and placing down so till you run out of strips.
Remember to protect your edges so they don't brown too quick!
Voila! A beautiful lattice top on a very delicious blueberry pie.

The second one is delightfuldots.blogspot.com I learned how to convert my blog into a 3-column format on her site. She has 21 of the 3 column designs, and many many more of the regular 2-column designs
Another one that I found that looks promising if you want to check out some more templates and backgrounds:
Here is a tidbit that might save you some money. Often times, I end up using more conditioner than shampoo. When this happens, I sometimes try to “catch up” with my shampoo and use more than I need so that I can buy both at the same time. Now, you don’t have to do that! One easy way to save money is to buy pump bottles. Target and Wal-Mart have them. You can buy the soap kind like above, or the plastic ones they have near the travel section. Since we are saving money, you don’t have to buy really nice ones. I mean, its not on your sink for everyone to see—Its in your shower!
You should buy one for shampoo (if you and another family member use different, but another pump bottle), one for conditioner, and one for your body wash (if you don’t use bar soap). Because your shampoo and conditioner is now in a pump bottle, it is easier to regulate yourself on how much you pump out each wash. You can also teach kids not to waste extras by showing them they only need one or two pumps. And
If you don’t buy body wash, but use a bar soap—this is what I have learned. If you open the bar of soap when you get home from the store and just set it in your cupboard where it can dry out, when your current soap is out and you pull this one out of the cupboard, it should last longer since it has had time to dry out (not a day, but a couple of weeks to a month should work fine). This is what I have been doing with some soap that I bought on clearance at Wal-Mart. It is just sitting in the bathroom waiting till it is all nice and “dried” so that it can last me longer.
Happy saving money!
Please leave comments on how you save money with your bathroom supplies! Everyone could learn from your experiences!

If you end up checking out the website, let me know how it goes. Just leave a comment!
I am not used to html codes, so I havent worked my blog out exactly how I want it. But, hopefully soon someone can show me, or I can get a blog makeover so that it will be what I want it to be.
Now, on to introdcutions. This blog is called HoneyBeeBzz because Melissa (thats me!) means Honey Bee. I am married to my very best friend, Charles and we have a darling little son named Jesse. We live in sunny (read here smog-gy) Southern California. Chuck is going to school full-time, and since being laid off is a stay-at-home dad. I work full time and I am a mom full time. I also, am a blogger/crafter/day-dreamer most of the time too!
I love to read other people's blogs. In fact, I follow a bunch and I get up earlier in the morning then I have to in order to read people's posts in my google reader before I head off to work. I would love to one day take a creative writing class and maybe write a book. That would be awesome. But until then, hello blog world-- here I come!
