I learned this week how you can "memorialize" the Facebook account of a loved one.

I have seen a number of folks blog about creating a "gratitude list". My wife has one. It's about time I started one. It basically helps you have a list of all the things to be grateful for, and every day you add a couple and you see over time just how much you have to be grateful for.
