How Much Is Your Life Worth....?

......... Mine is worth $9.99US or $10.19 CAD (exchange rate). Here is how I found out.

I have finally decided to separate my "life" blog from my "business" blog. This is not really as grand as separating "Church from State" but it may make my posts a little more focused and relevant for Infiknit. The posts of my crazy life as Carol Tomany will still be there, however, you will be redirected from to

I decided to book a few new urls and I had hoped to book the url, for my personal blog. However, although the domain name was available, Go-Daddy had decided to create an auction for it and the opening bid was $67.50. Now, the Canadian version, was only $9.99US.

I now know what my life is worth. I opted for the $9.99US price of the .ca domain registration rather than the inflated .com. Why, with the Canadian exchange rate my life, in Canada anyway, is actually worth $10.19. Does that mean that life is more valuable in Canada? Maybe, we'll see, as I continue to post on Life Is What Happens!!

A penny for your thoughts

The phrase is not new. I actually read it, for the first time, years ago on a package of E-Z Bobs (more on these later) from Bryson Distributing. It is an original quote from Anon A. Ms. :) which goes like this:

"Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans."

Now, about the other blog. In order to spare busy shop owners, the frenzied chaos of my personal life, I have started a blog that will be very calm and business-like - - to create the illusion that we are in control here at Infiknit and we do have some amazing products and some amazing customers - YOU !!

The flip side of the coin will be my posts on LIWH (Life is what happens) which will be my same old observations of the ironies of life. Hmmm maybe it really is only worth $10.19 CAD.

The picture - A penny for your thoughts or 1,019 of them, if that makes any cents (sense).

Have a great day!!
